Thanks for Stopping By: A Study of "Thanks" Usage on Wikimedia [article]

Swati Goel, Ashton Anderson, Leila Zia
2019 arXiv   pre-print
Though the prevalence of "Thanks" usage varies by editor experience, the impact of receiving a thank seems mostly consistent for all users.  ...  We study the motivational impacts of "Thanks" because maintaining editor engagement is a central problem for crowdsourced repositories of knowledge such as Wikimedia.  ...  This trend is further corroborated by Nemoto and Okada. • To get a sense of the variance in "Thanks" usage across projects, we rank all Wikimedia projects at the time of study (July 2018) by the ratio  ...
