Context

Calcification of policies and help pages has been detected as one of the factors that have led to a community decline in terms of the number of active editors since 2009. Given their long-term involvement and the lack of general indicators, many Wikipedians may not be aware of which policy and help pages have more readership, of their level of clarity, and the last time they were updated.

Abstract (up to 100 words)

In this presentation, we introduce the project Wikipedia Administrative Pages Analytics, a space to analyze, understand and make recommendations and tools to improve the inclusion and maintenance of Administrative Pages across Wikipedia language editions.

In a similar way to other projects aimed a content gaps, its mission is to use analytical tools to raise awareness on the current state of development, maintenance, participation, and inclusion in Administrative Pages, these are all those that are used by Wikipedians to coordinate and govern Wikipedia, ranging from policies and guidelines, help pages, and deletion discussions.


How will this session be beneficial for the communities in the region of Central and Eastern Europe?

Analyzing the policy & guidelines pages according to different criteria to generate valuable information to help editors keep them up-to-date or delete them. We will show specific examples from CEE languages in the different analyses.
