Looking at anonymous edits in User: namespace on English Wikipedia[edit]

I've gathered a random sample of recent edits within the "User" namespace on English Wikipedia that were not to sub-pages and whose IP address did not associate with any logged in changes (using the `checkuser` system). This is a random sub-sample of the roughly 60% of anon user-space edits that didn't match a registered user.

Good edits (45)
Good faith damage (6)
Vandalism (54)

I just finished working on this with User:I JethroBT (WMF) and edited the above to include our notes. --EpochFail (talk) 22:53, 24 August 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Does this also include deleted edits? Jo-Jo Eumerus (talk, contributions) 08:46, 25 August 2016 (UTC)[reply]
They seem to be included, as I see one; «deletes "do not delete" line on sandbox page» is not damage but successful testing; a bot cleans up there anyway. Nemo 10:06, 25 August 2016 (UTC)[reply]
