           Summary: Can the extension social rewarding be enabled on a
                    small wiki like sewp?
           Product: Wikimedia
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Normal
         Component: Site requests
        AssignedTo: wikibugs-l@lists.wikimedia.org
        ReportedBy: vac...@jeb.no


The extension for social rewarding may be an interesting option for small wikis
struggling to get working community. Without sufficient interest there will not
be many active users, and without enough active users no community will emerge.

Various kinds of social rewarding may be a simple yet efficient way to initiate
a community. By visualizing which ones are active we will increase the interest
somewhat, perhaps enough that an initial community will start to emerge.

There are one extension called SocialRewarding
(http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:SocialRewarding) which may be
sufficient for test purposes. Unfortunately it seems like it have some load
issues. Still in a wiki that is rather small, like the one at Northern Sami
language (http://se.wikipedia.org), it may not be a very big issue. Later when
the community exists the extension may be turned off. Until then it seems to be
an important asset.

What needs to be done with this extension before it can be enabled on sewp?
