What Wikimedia project(s) and specific areas will you be evaluating?
Is this project measuring a specific space on a project (e.g. deletion discussions), or the project as a whole?
Can be applied in every wiki. In order to make sure that the examples are taken from one source (not selected at will), this can be done at the Village Pump or/and at the Administrators' board.
Describe your idea. How might it be implemented?
Examine sentence by sentence the Administrator's Board for a specific period.
Are there experienced Wikimedians who can help implement this project?
If applicable, please list groups or usernames of individuals who you can work with on this project, and what kind of work they will do.
Feedback from the recipients, the local community and Wikimedia Foundation (provided in public in the local wiki) will start the process. Repeat of the measurements every month, will show if incidents are decreasing of not.
How would your measurement idea help your community make better decisions?
After you are finished measuring or evaluating your Wikimedia project, how do you expect that information to be used to benefit the project?
Users will be able to see for themselves what counts as "negative behaviour". In this case, we can always hope that a few of them will think twice before repeating such behaviour.
Do you think you can implement this idea? What support do you need?
Do you need people with specific skills to complete this idea? Are there any financial needs for this project? If you can’t implement this project, can you scale down your project so it is doable?
I am not interested to implement it. However, I believe that this should be implemented by at least two people, ideally three, who would be able to agree on which edits are producing negative feelings
