第2四半期って何? 1年を四分割した2番目の期間(Q2=Quarter 2)のことで、10月、11月、12月を指します

FY 23-24ってどういう意味? FYとは予算年次(Fiscal Year)のことで、23-24 とは2023年7月から2024年6月までの期間を指します。

コア指標って? 計測値を明確に定義して集めた小さなセットをコア指標(Core Metrics)としており、戦略的な決定を導くものです[1]。当年の年次計画の一環としてコア指標の領域は次の4件を開発しました。「貢献者」、「内容」、「関連性」、「効率性」。

During Q2, we made progress toward the Contributors and Effectiveness metrics, detailed below. We have not yet begun to do the work that will feed the Content and Relevance metrics–those metrics remain at baseline. We expect to see progress on these through interventions in the coming quarters.


While we develop a more comprehensive metric to measure the health of our contributors, we aim to improve and maintain the health of the Movement's communities of contributors by delivering at least one significant intervention per quarter that supports editors with extended rights.


In Q2, the Editing, Structured Data, and Apps teams improved three workflows for production users: Edit Check, UploadWizard, iOS Watchlist.

  1. 編集チェックを改善
    • What? This set of improvements for the visual editor helps new volunteers understand and follow some of the policies and guidelines necessary to make constructive changes to Wikipedia projects.
    • Why? This intervention will help decrease the amount of time editors with extended rights spend reverting low-quality edits and posting messages about policies and guidelines, by surfacing relevant guidance when inexperienced volunteers are in the midst of making a change to Wikipedia, equipping inexperienced editors to make high-quality changes.
  2. UploadWizard を改善
    • What? These design improvements to the Wikimedia Commons UploadWizard make it clearer to new users how to provide the right information when uploading new media, reducing the possibility of uploading material that would be flagged for deletion.
    • Why? This intervention will help decrease the burden for volunteers with extended rights, by minimizing the possibility of uploading media that might trigger a deletion request
  3. iOS ウォッチリストを改善
    • What ? This improvement brings the Watchlist feature to the Wikipedia app for iOS, enabling users to maintain a list of articles they're interested in, making it easy to stay updated on their changes and edits.
    • Why? This intervention will help volunteers with extended rights mitigate vandalism on Wikipedia more quickly by having access to the Watchlist feature on their mobile device.


We aim to increase quality and reliability of encyclopedic content by increasing the percentage of Wikipedia articles that are in high-impact topic areas (beginning with gender and geography) and meet a shared quality standard.

Status: Work impacting this metric has not yet begun

In Q2 the Wikimedia Foundation's Campaigns, Community Growth, and Growth teams worked on 6 projects that supported community-led initiatives related to geography and/or gender:

  1. Event discovery: the event discovery tool aims to help editors discover community-led events on the wikis, such as those related to high-impact topics such as geography and gender.
  2. Event registration: the event registration tool aims to help editors register for community-led events on the wikis, such as those related to high-impact topics such as geography and gender.
  3. Community spotlight: this Homepage module aims to offer editors content translation tasks and help bring editors’ attention to content gaps on high-impact topics such as geography and gender.
  4. Homepage content translation: this Homepage module aims to help communities highlight important community events and initiatives, including those related to high-impact topics such as geography and gender.
  5. Women’s Health Project support: the Community Growth team is supporting the Women's Health Project, a community-led project that aims to map knowledge gaps related to women’s health on Wikipedia and curate resources that are useful to support the movement’s efforts in bridging these content gaps.
  6. Celebrate Women campaign support and Wikipedia Needs More Women: the Community Growth team began providing campaigns support to a community project focused on adding content to close the gender gap on Wikipedia and other projects. Comms is also profiling the gender gap and funnelling newcomers into the community campaign through media targeting in Anglophone African countries and India.

Because the projects above are still in the stages of development and planning, the Wikimedia Foundation has not yet delivered programs or products to impact the Content metric; so the changes showcased below are related initiatives not led by the Foundation. Understanding fluctuations in the content area of geography will be critical when we report on our progress in upcoming quarters, as we will need to take into account how ongoing trends, external factors, and community-led initiatives are playing a role.

We also note that changes to articles about places in overrepresented regions can cause spikes and drops in these metrics. For example, in Q2, bot activity altering citations in a set of articles about France caused the percentage of new quality articles about overrepresented regions to be lower, resulting in a higher percentage of new quality articles about underrepresented regions.

In Q2, 37% of new quality articles about geographic content were about underrepresented regions.

  • 37% is a 5 percentage point increase from Q2 last year.
  • Not all regional content had an increase. View breakdowns by region.
  • Not all Wikipedia editions had an increase. View breakdowns by Wikipedia language edition.
  • Product interventions focused on improving contributor experiences are planned to launch throughout Q3 and Q4. These interventions are targeting a +1% impact on this geographic content metric by the end of the 2023-2024 fiscal year.

Which regions are "underrepresented"? The following regions are classified as underrepresented within the Content metric area: East, Southeast Asia, and Pacific; Latin America and the Caribbean; Middle East and North Africa; South Asia; and Sub-Saharan Africa. Content about these five regions is underrepresented on Wikipedia when compared to global population distributions.


As part of our annual plan goals around gender equity, we aim to create "more inclusive, gender-equitable and safe spaces to contribute intersectional content on women's biographies and material that women want to read." This fiscal year, we will support, and report on the outcomes of, two community-led initiatives aimed at closing gender gaps in article content.

第2四半期にはコミュニティ主導の次のプログラム領域の課題2件について、コミュニティ・成長チームによる補佐が始まりました(Community Growth team)。ひとつは女性の健康(女性の健康プロジェクト)、もう1つは人物伝の領域です(女性を祝おうキャンペーンウィキペディアに女性が足りない)。


We aim to ensure our relevance and sustainability to a broad audience world-wide by increasing the number of unique devices accessing Wikipedia. Unique devices refer to the number of distinct electronic devices (e.g. mobile phones, desktop computers) that visited, in this case, Wikipedia sites. Learn more about unique devices here.

Status: Work impacting this metric has not yet begun

In Q2, the Data Center Operations team continued work on a project to build out a new data center in São Paolo, Brazil. Deployment of this new data center is scheduled for the beginning of Q4 and is on-track to complete by the end of this FY. The intended impact of this new data center is a decrease in latency for users in the region, and an increase in readership in South America. From previous research, we have an estimation of impact to relevance metric: +5.1M unique devices in the LATAM+C region (0.3% increase to global unique devices).

Because the new data center is still in the development stages, the Wikimedia Foundation has not yet delivered products or programs that would impact the Relevance metric; so the increase in unique devices showcased below are related to initiatives not led by the Foundation. We will be doing more work to understand how we can grow unique devices moving forward, including an intervention next quarter.  Do you have ideas about community activities or external factors that might be impacting the Relevance metric? Let us know on the talk page!

In Q2, Wikipedia was accessed by 1.66 billion unique devices per month.
  • 1.66 billion is an increase of approximately 40 million monthly unique devices compared to Q2 last year.
  • Monthly unique devices increased in some Wikipedia editions, and decreased in others. View breakdowns by Wikipedia language edition here or visit Wiki Stats to explore language-edition trends further!
  • 月別の固有デバイス数は、一部の地域では増加したものの、他の地域では減少しました。地域別の内訳はこちらをご参照ください
  • 16億6千万件とは、年次計画の固有デバイス年末目標とした1ヵ月あたり16億件を6千万件、上回るわけです。この数値は、現在から年度末までの期間に変動すると予想しており、引き続き第3と第4四半期の年末目標に向けた進捗状況を監視していきます




前会計年次に総予算の 76% をプログラム経費に支出しました。この数値は目標値を 1 ポイント増に設定しており、これはプログラム上の使命達成を支える取り組みにおいて大幅な財政増加を意味します。
