# Problems/List/Low activity on mailing lists

< Problems‎ | List

## Problem explanation

• There is a subjective opinion of more than one Wikimedian that communication at mailing lists tend to decline. So, precise analysis of the trends related to communication is needed. --Millosh 20:22, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

## Analysis: Lists statistics

Some of the lists are analyzed statistically. (It is possible to analyze any [Mailman based] list in this way; software will be uploaded soon; you may ask for particular analysis.)

Legend:

• Email count: Number of emails.
• New participants: New persons which posted at the list for the first time. "Person" is a sender with unique email address AND unique name. It is possible that there are more persons with the same name, but the error is the lowest by using this [simple] method: persons may change their emails, as well as they may change their name inside of the email identification.
• Active participants: Number of active persons for particular month. "Person" has the same definition as the previous one.
• Email size: Email size in bytes. Note that non-ASCII, especially non-Latin alphabets have usually bigger emails in bytes (up to near to twice).

## Analysis: Data interpretation

### General lists

• Communication on all general lists are decreasing. Technical lists (wikitech-l and mediawiki-l) are significantly better than general non-technical list foundation-l. Out of other particular cases, technical lists stays the best.

### Project lists

• commons-l has very high decrease in traffic, while decreases in number of new and active participants are significant, while not so high.
• textbook-l (Wikibooks list) is one of the rare examples which is not in decreasing!
• wikimediameta-l increases, while it is a very young list, which should take community part of discussion from foundation-l list. However, increase on this list is not significant enough to cover (at least, partially) decrease at foundation-l.
• wikinews-l: Similarly to foundation-l -- significant decrease.
• wikipedia-l: It shows very high decrease in all aspects. During the first years it was used as the main list, including for Wikipedia in English. Decrease 2002-2003 shows moving Wikipedia in English issues to the language specific list -- wikien-l. Decrease 2005-2006 probably shows moving general issues to foundation-l. However, 2006-2008 doesn't have any obvious reason and it follows the similar decrease on the foundation-l list.
• wikiquote-l: While it was not a very active list ever, this list is de facto dead from June 2008.
• wikisource-l: While it was not a very active list ever, it shows not significant decrease during 2008.
• wikispecies-l: This list was not significantly active ever and conclusions about time line of its activity can't be made.
• wiktionary-l: The list was in decrease during 2006 and again between mid-2007 and present (October 2008).

### Per language Wikipedias

• wikide-l: In constant decrease since the first half of 2005.
• wikien-l: In decrease since the beginning of 2008.
• wikies-l: In increase from the second part of 2006 and during 2007, but in decrease during 2008; the second part 2008 has less traffic than the second part of 2006.
• wikifr-l: In constant decrease since the end of 2005.
• wikiit-l: In constant decrease since the beginning of 2007.
• wikija-l: The only analyzed Wikipedia list which shows increase of traffic -- since the beginning of 2006.
• wikipl-l: In constant decrease since the second half of 2005.
• wikipt: While it was never a very active list, it is almost dead (3 emails for October 2008, no emails between June and September).
• wikiru-l: Data shows that the community around Wikipedia in Russian doesn't use wikiru-l as their mailing list.
• wikizh-l: In constant decrease since the second half of 2006.
