Tutorial number: WT2
This tutorial has been cancelled due to unforseen circumstances.
This tutorial presents my experiences with seeding, growing, and managing Wikipedia, the online encyclopedia, and its related wikis and endeavors. The talk focusses on the social and managerial aspects of Wikipedia. We discuss practical issues of dealing with wikispam, with editorial processes, decision making within the Wikimedia foundation. We distill our experiences into a set of social best practices so that we hope other wikis can learn from our experiences.
Intermediate: Attendees should either be users of large wikis or be responsible for managing one or intend to start one.
