@Frank Schulenburg: @Eryk (Wiki Ed): thanks for sharing the results. Regarding your measurements of content added, I recommend you look at Aaron's recent work. Some of the work we're doing at WMF in the Research and Data team in collaboration with IEG grantees allows you to automatically measure edit and article quality and aggregate these values at editor or cohort level. We're also looking at automated edit type classification which I am sure you'll find interesting as it will allow us to measure the nature of someone's work beyond poor metrics of contribution like raw edit counts or bytes added. Happy to set up a conversation if this is of any interest --DarTar (talk) 21:56, 11 July 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@DarTar: thanks Dario! We've been following Aaron's work on revision scoring as a service, and I'm really excited about taking advantage of it as more of the planned metrics become available. In the short term, the thing we're most excited about is probably the WP1.0 estimation, which we want to combine with view stats to essentially build a service around what Nettrom, et al did with the "Misalignment Between Supply and Demand..." paper, to create subject specific lists of underdeveloped articles where people can have the most impact, but of course there are soooo many other things that one can imagine doing with a robust suite of revision scoring APIs.--Sage (Wiki Ed) (talk) 20:27, 13 July 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]
