David Adams is writing for The Age's Livewire section and is putting
together a piece on Wikipedia, particularly looking at the community
of people who create Wikipedia entries. He would like to chat to
Australian Wikipedians about their involvement with the project. If
you'd like to be interviewed, please contact him at
I simply find it too hard to believe that 8% of all Australian Wikipedia contributions are directed at the Polish Wikipedia (while only 2% relate to all non-English language wikipedias).
I know that the Polish Wikipedia is amongst the top ten in terms of size, but amongst those same top ten you will find other languages with sizeable communities in Australia, including Italian, German, Dutch and Spanish (and that's before we get to other sizeable communities, such as Greek, Croation, Serbian, Vietnamese, Chinese, etc.).
I simply cannot see what stands out about the Polish community within Australia (wonderful people as they are) that would give this overwhelmingly lopsided figure (that's what I am referring to, not whether Polish Australians are active on the Polish Wikipedia or not). I can only conclude that we have another wierd IP address ring-a-rosie going on.
