Articles from country bot?

Nkansah Rexford
I wish to learn if there exist a bot or page can retrieve all pages ever
created from a particular country.

I order words, to know all pages from a particular country.

Any like that?

Thanks.

What do you mean "created from", created by users in that country?

Yes. Created by users from that country.

Thanks for the correction.

Ok, so no we don't and it's not possible, except for unregistered users.
We have something for edits, though:
<http://stats.wikimedia.org/wikimedia/squids/SquidReportPageEditsPerLanguageBreakdown.htm>
It should be good enough if we assume that the proportion of edits which
are article creations doesn't differ hugely from country to country.
There's an ongoing discussion about producing more breakdowns of
aggregated data on editors at
http://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/analytics/2013-August/000857.html ,
if you're interested.

Ultimately, the only thing we know about an article's creator is what that
creator has stated publicly. So for a given country, you *could* do
something for "created by self-described users from that country" by using,
eg,

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Wikipedians_in_Singapore

and running the names through http://tools.wmflabs.org/xtools/pages/

It'll take some time and get you a list of pages, but it'll have some big
problems:

* it'll miss out all the users from Singapore who haven't publicised where
they're from
* it'll include articles they wrote when outside of Singapore
* it'll include articles by people who say they're in Singapore but aren't
really

So perhaps not a very useful list, all told...

Andrew.

And it will need to be re-done periodically.

A tool to catch all edits by users in a category would be useful for some
other categories, though.

In reply to this post by Andrew Gray-3
Rather than give these workarounds, it might be useful to know *why* you
want to know this information. That is, what is your end goal? We may be
able to suggest a better strategy if we know that.

Re: Articles from country bot?

Nkansah Rexford
Okay Elias.

The goal for such a tool is this: a group of contributors to Wikipedia from
Ghana, wishes to know all articles that have been submitted by Ghanaians,
about Ghana or anything Ghana-related over a period of time (for instance,
within 5 years ago)

Thus, we hope we can scan through such list to know which article(s) to
improve and/or add images to. Contents relating to Ghana are scattered and
hard to locate by hand, I think. Using the country sorting way, we hope we
can pull all articles submitted from Ghana (perhaps using its IP), created
by a Ghanaian (person with Ghana badge on profile), and/or articles
categorized under Ghana.

In fact, I was thinking a tool of that sort existed. However, if not, I
think the suggestions aforementioned in this thread are good enough to help
us retrieve what we're looking for.

Thanks.

I think I found something similar to what I'm looking for

Thanks.
