Talk:Submissions/The Effect of Blocking IP Editing: Evidence from Wikia

Latest comment: 8 years ago by Bdamokos in topic Slides


I have long been in the camp that assumes that vandals will do the minimum necessary to edit, and therefore that a ban on IP editing would lose us some goodfaith contributors and also make vandals harder to spot. It would be good to see evidence to confirm or challenge this. WereSpielChequers (talk) 18:05, 14 May 2015 (UTC)Reply

Range blocking

Apparently on the English Wikipedia we have millions of IP addresses caught up in range blocks and blocked as current or even former open proxies. Do you have comparative figures on the effect of this as well? WereSpielChequers (talk) 18:05, 14 May 2015 (UTC)Reply


Hi Mako and Aaron, This was an interesting and very data filled presentation, so I am wondering, could the slides of this presentation be made available here? Or perhaps the abstract could be updated with the spoilery answers to the research questions?

Thank you, --Bdamokos (talk) 17:35, 22 August 2015 (UTC)Reply
