On this page, the result of some complex queries are reported. All data are gathered from the 2007 edits and logs of Simple English Wikipedia, by the time of the analysis.
Time difference between first and second edit
For articles created from Jan 1 2007 till Sep 13 2007, I calculated the time difference (in seconds) between the first and the second edit made to an article. This roughly represents the time taken for an article to be reviewed by a second editor. As usual, deleted articles are not included in the gathered data. Also, only pages from the main namespace where considered.
The minimum time difference was 7 seconds, and the maximum was 2320154 seconds (26 days). As the data was very skewed, mean and standard deviation could not represent the data usefully. Therefor, the median of the data was calculated which was 532 seconds (8 minutes 52 seconds).
The same analysis was undertaken for English Wikipedia, as the most edited sister project. The results where very similar: The minimum value was 7 seconds, the maximum being 2497053 seconds (28 days); median was 536 seconds (slightly higher than Simple English Wikipedia, but statistically insignificant).
Based on this information, it can be estimated that our editors are as good in reviewing newly created articles, as those of English Wikipedia. It can be later reconfirmed, by changing the codes used for calculation of these measures, in a way that the time difference between the first edit by the article creator, and the first edit by a "named" user could be calculated.
The tables below list top 20 editors with most number of articles edited in each month. Anonymous users and bots are removed from the analysis. It was impossible to exclude edits made using AWB or similar tools, through the main account of a user:
Below, the top 20 editors of each month (based on the number of their edits in main namespace) are tabulated. Again, an effort has been made not to report bot accounts, but it doesn't mean edits using AWB or similar tools through a user's main account are not counted.
The tables below show the top 20 articles, based on the number of edits given to them in the given month. This includes edits made by bots, and reverted edits.
