I'm trying to research some of the community's editing habits, both historically and now. Take a a look at this page for an idea of what we'll be doing. This is all very conceptual 'n' stuff, so be patient.

Countervandalism[edit | edit source]

The good[edit | edit source]

  • Median revert time has fallen 60% in the last year to a record 19 seconds.
  • There are fewer reverts these days, likely meaning more use of undo and fewer vandals - and that Special:AbuseFilter is doing its job.
  • There are fewer bad edits going unnoticed for longer periods of time.

The bad[edit | edit source]

  • The percentage of countervandalism work being done by a small group of users is at an all-time high.
  • Disclaimer - The year is not yet over. The numbers for 2011 are likely to fall another 3-5 percent.

Conclusion[edit | edit source]

Countervandalism is getting better this year, but on the backs of fewer users.
