Research:Mobile anonymous apocalypse

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

This page is an incomplete draft of a research project.
Information is incomplete and is likely to change substantially before the project starts.

Between 2015-03-25 and 2015-04-01, a change was merged to all production Wikipedia projects that enabled editing via the mobile web interface without logging in. In this study we'll examine this event as a natural experiment and examine the changes that happened to the affected wikis.



Using March 30th, 2015 as our date of interest, we will examine metrics of editor productivity around this date.
