Somethings vital that are missing:
1) How many regular editors were required to clean up the articles. How
many reverts/cleanup edits were required to clean up after the IEP students.
2) How many admin actions/interventions were required - warnings, blocks,
mergers, deletions, AFDs
3) How many regular volunteer hours were spent on this project.
4) How much did the new page patrollers (NPP) backlog increase because of
5) How much did the copyright cleanup investigations (CCI) backlog increase
because of IEP
6) How long is it going to take to clean everything up. What do the NPP/CCI
project members feel about the extra workload.
7) What was the impact on the existing en wiki community. How their
attitude towards such a program has been damaged.
A supplimentary question:
Are kudpung, moonriddengirl, fluffernutter, Voceditenore, spacemanspiff et
al being interviewed?
