Welcome!
Hello, Jarekt, and welcome to Wikimedia Demographics. This is a resource for studying the culture of Wikimedia, the cultural phenomenon of Wikimedia, and the hopes and aspirations of the Wikimedians themselves.

To participate, all that's required is to fill in the responses to the template that you will see when you edit this page. When you're done, you will see the results and further instructions.

To answer, hit the "edit" button at the top of this page (use a new window if you need to see the instructions while answering). If you don't have an opinion or don't want to respond to any particular question, leave the field after the "=" blank. If you've loaded the surveys in a package and some of the surveys don't apply to you, simply remove them from this page (from the opening brackets to the closing ones).


Two helpful hints for all surveys
1. When you take a survey, be sure to remove the "y" after "show instructions", as this will make the instruction boxes disappear and make your page less cluttered. You can always re-add the "y" if more questions are added or you want to change your responses.
2. If a survey doesn't apply to you or you have no intention of participating in it, just remove it from your survey page.


The first question in every survey asks if you want to show instructions. When you're done, just remove the "y" and the instructions will disappear.

The basic survey asks broad questions about who you are and how you participate in Wikimedia projects. Options for answering are as follows:

  • For the next 10 questions, you will be asked about your level of involvement in the various Wikimedia wikis, rating your participation from 0-4.
    • 4 = Your primary project, where you spend most of your energy as a contributor.
    • 3 = Projects you regularly contribute to, though not as much as your primary
    • 2 = Projects you occaisionally contribute to
    • 1 = Projects you rarely contribute to
    • 0 = Projects you don't contribute to, but do read and use
    • leave blank if you neither use nor contribute to the project in question.
  • For the next 2 questions (IRC and mailinglist usage), you will again be asked to rate your participation, this time from 1-4 (default does nothing)
    • 4 = You regularly use, follow, or post on IRC or at least one of the Wikimedia mailinglists
    • 3 = You occaisionaly use, follow, or post on IRC or at least one of the Wikimedia mailinglists
    • 2 = You rarely use, follow, or post on IRC or at least one of the Wikimedia mailinglists
    • 1 = You never use, follow, or post on IRC or at least one of the Wikimedia mailinglists
  • Enter the four digit year when you made your first edit to a wikimedia project
  • The next question asks whether you are an administrator on any Wikimedia project. Please answer "y" or "n" (default does nothing)
  • Indicate your gender using "m" for male, "f" for female, and "t" for transgendered
  • Indicate where you live in the world using:
    • "ne" for the northeast quadrant (Europe, Asia, North Africa, etc.)
    • "nw" for the northwest quadrant (North America, Carribean, etc.)
    • "se" for the southeast quadrant (Africa, Australia, etc.)
    • "sw" for the southwest quadrant (South America, etc.)

To see a list of other available surveys, remove the "y" from after "Show instructions ("y" shows instructions for the basic survey)"

    • 3 - About half your own work
    • 4 - Mostly not your own work

    • 2 - sometimes difficult
    • 3 - often difficult
  • how much do you work on categorizing commons
    • 1 - You don't categorize at all
    • 2 - You categorize your own images, but nothing else
    • 3 - You occasionally categorize images that you did not upload
    • 4 - You regularly categorize images that you did not upload
  • should all images be organized by gallery or category -- there are "competing theories" about how to organize commons using the category system. These questions refer specifically to adding categories to media files, as opposed to adding them to galleries of files and leaving only the licensing categories on the images.
    • 1 - All media files should be categorized, regardless of whether they are in a gallery or not
    • 2 - All media files should be categorized and linked by a gallery
    • 3 - All media files should either be categorized or in a gallery, but not both
    • 4 - All media files should be in galleries, and should not be categorized at all
  • do you support web-crawling for images using tools such as FlickrLickr -- the use of automated scripts and bots to search the internet for freely licensed images has supporters and detractors.
    • 1 - Support
    • 2 - Neutral
    • 3 - Oppose
  • Should featured media and media of the year be restricted to works created by Wikimedians -- "featured pictures" are shown on the main page of commons, and additional awards are given for all sorts of media. Should these be restricted to commons contributors? Wikimedia contributors?
    • 1 - Only media that is uploaded directly to commons should be considered
    • 2 - Only media that is uploaded to commons or another wikimedia project should be considered
    • 3 - All media should be considered, regardless of its source
  • are you an administrator on commons -- y for yes, n for no
  • Do you support the policy of removing administrator status from inactive administrators -- a policy was recently enacted which requires administrators to use their administrative tools in order to keep these permissions.
    • 1 - Current activity requirements should be higher
    • 2 - Current activity requirements are about right
    • 3 - Current activity requirements are too high
    • 4 - Oppose any activity requirements
  • Should users be allowed to ask that their files be deleted from commons
    • 1 - Yes, uploaders should have the right to see their uploads deleted without explanation or apology
    • 2 - Yes, uploaders should have the right to see their uploads deleted without explanation or apology, unless the file is already being used on a Wikimedia project
    • 3 - Yes, uploaders should have the right to see their uploads deleted without explanation or apology, so long as another file is available to illustrate the subject(s)
    • 4 - No, uploaders should not have the right to see their uploads deleted unless there is reason to believe that there may be licensing problems
    • 5 - No, uploaders should not have the right to see their uploads deleted unless there is solid evidence that there are licensing problems
