The Wikipedia Chaos Index for June 2024 sits at 58, a very slight decrease from May.  Despite the slight decrease, the number of new pages submitted through Articles for Creation increased significantly, back to the already-high levels we saw earlier in 2024.

Sockpuppet investigations and pages nominated for deletion remain at the high levels they’ve maintained through most of 2024; Wikipedia continues to be quite diligent about promotionalism on the platform, and is actively engaged in trying to delete pages with no factual or encyclopedic value.

The overall editing on Wikipedia has decreased slightly from its extremely high levels in February, March and April – but overall, the platform continues to be more active in 2024 than it was in the second half of 2023.

Throughout the year, Wikipedia holds various campaigns to generate interest in various subjects – like the (surprisingly competitive) Wiki Loves Monuments contest held from September to October each year, or the Wikipedia Needs More Women campaign we talked about in April’s newsletter.

In June, the big Wikipedia event is Wiki Loves Pride, which celebrates its 12th anniversary this year, promoting the development of content on LGBT+ Wikimedia projects. The project, which is supported by the Wikimedia LGBT+ user group, is a global initiative with over 100 annual participants – to date, the project has contributed:

  • Over 700 new Wikipedia categories
  • Created/improved over 3,100 articles
  • Uploaded 5,000+ files to Wikimedia Commons

In addition, the community holds in-person edit-a-thon events (including Dublin, Ireland, in 2023) to help improve Wikipedia – this June, there will be two meetups in Indianapolis with a focus on improving local LGBT history topics. To learn more about the campaign, check out its Wikipedia page!

The Chaos Index is a proprietary metric for measuring turbulence throughout Wikipedia and tracking the community’s current sentiment towards corporate-related pages. The index measures community actions such as editing frequency, content deletion, message board posts, and many other activities that contribute to unstable corporate page environments.
