Excited to share this new blog post on my research: https://blog.communitydata.cc/revisiting-the-rise-and-decline/
The pool of active contributors to Wikipedia started declining in 2007. Researchers blamed a calcifying bureaucracy and hostility to newcomers. Are these problems in other wiki communities too? Could there be a deeper reason why these dynamics emerge?
I replicated Halfaker et al 2013's analysis of 'The rise and decline.' The dynamics observed in Wikipedia appear to reoccur again and again in many wiki communities.

So I have to select all the languages I don't understand to filter them from my feed? Wouldn't opting in to specific languages be an easier filtering UI?

Good stuff: What is GNU Social and is Mastodon Social a “Twitter Clone”? by @rw https://robekworld.com/what-is-gnu-social-and-is-mastodon-social-a-twitter-clone-1b12a98c37ec
Just set up my personal Mastodon at https://mastodon.ar.al
Follow me there:
You can mention me there using @aral
When/if you can, I would highly urge you to set up your own Mastodon instance. Currently requires tech knowledge/isn’t seamless (and getting it there will be a big challenge) but this is a great start and a very good step in the right direction.
Lots of love to @eugen and the dev team :)
If I ever make it back to the Berenstein timeline, I wonder if I'll remember my time here.
