Data on arbitration, mediation, voting

Ofer Arazy
Hi everyone,

As part of my research on governance mechanisms in Wikipedia, I'm looking
for data regarding mediation, arbitration, and polls.
Are records of mediation and arbitration committees (dates, the article,
decisions) and on voting readily available?
How could I gain access to this data?
I'm particularly interested on data regarding the Gdansk article (
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gda%C5%84sk), but would be happy to retrieve
data for other articles as well.

Thanks in advance,
Ofer Arazy

Hi Ofer,

Could you explain a bit more of the background what kind of questions
you're trying to answer? I have been looking into voting on Wikipedia
myself, and getting clean data is a challenge indeed.

Are you only interested in English or also in other communities? Do you
refer with 'article' to the lemma around which a dispute was settled (in
arbitration, it's often not a particular lemma) or rather the section of
the rules that the ruling would refer to (quite common in Dutch, not sure
if it is in other languages).

As for polls, outside the 2010 dataset on admin elections in English
Wikipedia, I have been unable to find any readily available data myself.
Most likely, you'd have to collect it from various pages and interpret the
data. It depends on the type of polls you're interested in, how straight
forward that is. (If I overlooked something, I would be happy to be
corrected!)

Best,

Lodewijk Gelauff

Re: Data on arbitration, mediation, voting

Ofer Arazy
Thanks,  Lodewijk

I'm interested in the English Wikipedia.
I'm studying he extent to which various governance mechanisms shape an
article's evolutionary trajectory (not going into the details of how that
trajectory is recorded and represented). The unit of analysis is a
particular article. My focus is on the application of mechanisms that
intended to alleviate conflicts.
So for the particular article mentioned - Gdansk - I would look at when
conflicts within this article have required mediation, arbitration or polls.
I'm hoping this clarifies things.

Ofer

Re: Data on arbitration, mediation, voting

Ziko van Dijk-3
Hello Ofer Arazy,

I remember your paper with M. Lisa Yeo which gave me important insight
about wikis in corporations.

If I understand you well, you are like a historian looking for primary
sources of institutions that deal with certain events, and the problem is
that some of those sources are not public?

With regard to my experience in the arbitration committee of German
Wikipedia: that committee has an external, non public wiki for discussing
cases in private. I don't know about any rules concerning a later
publication, comparable to the 30 years limit of restricted government
papers. It might be possible to find out who was on the arbitration
committee of English Wikipedia at that time, contact them and ask them to
publish what can be published, or at least give you access under certain
conditions.

In general, I am now busy e.g. with collaboration mechanisms in wikis and
with wikis in general. If you are interested in an exchange about these
topics, you may contact me for talking about.

Kind regards
Ziko van Dijk
