Who Will Stop Contributing?: Predicting Inactive Editors in Wikipedia - scientific work related to Wikipedia quality published in 2017, written by Harish Arelli and Francesca Spezzano.

Overview

In this paper, authors focus on English Wikipedia, one of the main user-contributed content systems, and study the problem of predicting which users will become inactive and stop contributing to the encyclopedia. Authors propose a predictive model leveraging frequent patterns appearing in user's editing behavior as features to predict active vs. inactive Wikipedia users. Authors experiments show that method can effectively predict inactive users with an AUROC of 0.97 and significantly beats competitors in the task of early prediction of inactive users.
