Areas of strength
  • Diversity of dialects. Users contribute in Alemannic dialects that are spoken in Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Liechtenstein, and Switzerland. Users from these six countries usually contribute to three different wikipedias (de:wp, fr:wp, it:wp).
  • Some themes that belong to Alemannic-speaking regions are described on a more detailed level than on de:wp, fr:wp, or it:wp, e. g. Walser communities in Italy
  • High proportion of articles bigger than 0.5 kB (> 90%), and bigger than 2 kB (> 50%).
Areas of weakness
  • Few contributors, especially from France and Austria
What other prominent encyclopedias exist in this language (print, electronic, online)?
  • There is no other encyclopaedia in Alemannic
  • The most important competitors are de:wp, resp. fr:wp or it:wp!

What has its impact been?


What language features are challenging?
  • Diacritics usage in text, e. g. no possibility for an Ö/ö with an accent grave (like À/à)
  • Because of the lack of a standardized orthography, article titles are written in Standard German, so linking is complicated.
What would surprise the outside reader about the community?
  • very friendly atmosphere in discussions in contrast to the rough atmosphere on de:wp
What are some unique practices/characteristics?
  • Titles of articles are written in Standard German but are overlaid by an Javascript-based Alemannic title
  • Everybody could write in his/her own dialect. If other users want to contribute to a given article they usually add new chapters in their dialect, so the dialect may change within an article.
  • Every article with less than 5 sentences is deleted.
  • All Alemannic Wikimedia projects have been merged. Other projects are now part of Wikipedia as separate namespaces: Wikisource, Wikiquote, Wiktionary, Wikibooks, Wikinews.
Who were the earliest participants, who started it?
Other prominent Wikipedians?
