Grants:IdeaLab/Aging of Articles

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki
Aging of Articles
Apart from regularly creating high quality content, wiki editors must constantly keep reviewing submitted articles. Faster reviews would always ensure more content creation. One metric to measure the rate of reviews is the ageing of the submitted articles and average time taken to respond after changes are done to a rejected article.

If number of articles submitted and awaiting review are on a decline and after a while do not exceed a threshold limit.

Also, overall the time taken to publish an article decreases with time : in short It would mean ease of publishing content and therefore, would lead to more content generation.
