- This wiki is a"work on progress" daily ( bi-daily) weekly documentation about testing edgesense.
- The 1st set of questions are here.
- as it is a work on progress, it wouldn't be well structured, include some thoughts, and will try not to add too much screenshots from edgesense to keep it easy to follow.
- any remarks, questions, comments,.........etc are welcomed of course :)
- at a first look on Edgeryders through Edgesense NOW , one can find 7 sub-communities, 3 relatively big and 4 relatively small ( according to the no of nodes).
- Green-light ( 1st community )
- orange-light ( UnMon and LOTE4 )
- Blue-light (STF ? )
- Green-dark ()
- Blue-dark ()
- Red (Ci2i )
- orange-light ()
when removing the moderators the most affected community (from the big 3 )is the blue-light(STF ).
the small red (Ci2i) community isn’t affected by the moderators.
the 3 other small sub-communities are still undefined,
- on nodes/ users - comments / edges statistics
edgeryders reached 2500 registered users with 634 nodes in March 10 , 2015 with a ratio of 25.4 % . the nodes to users ratio increased from 22.3 % in December 9, 2013.
- edgeryders network includes 4272 edge from 15322 comment on March 10, 2015 with a ratio of 27.9 % . The edges to comments ratio decreased from 35.3 % n Dec 9, 2013 (2532 edge from 7168 comment)
this decrease in the percentage could mean
- that the new nodes aren't integrated nicely as the old ones.
- old nodes forming the sub-communities are talking more to each other ( so no of comments increases but not new edges
- looking through the question of :" who are the central non-moderator members? (potential moderator role in the community)"
looking at the network without the moderators one can spot some nodes taking some centrality positions , some of them are still active while others left the conversations long ago.
with the new sub-communities (after the merge) it is easier to spot who left the conversations and who is still engaged in new conversations.
basically the green-light sub-community is the old content which will show major changes unless you go with the time slider back to 2012. so any node from other sub-communities who is connected to the green-light sub-community is an old member who is still engaged.
that’s why there is no interaction between the STF blue-light community members with it.
moving with the slider from the start till now will give a very nice idea on how the community developed and how the old community “gave birth” to the smaller community active now in LOTE and UnMon. It shows also how the STF community wasn’t completly integrated with the LOTE4 for example ( again it is easy to spot the members who joined the discussions )
it would take time to spot all the nodes, so edgesense in a big network like edgeryders would be easier for community managers more that normal users ( as community managers using edgesense will get used the network after a while of using it )
- old members who are not active anymore
- active ones

the above members are main central nodes and are connected with the STF sub community
Zooming on LOTE4
more precisely zooming on what’s happening on the platform from May 18 to November 18.
- No of edges increased from 3278 to 4003 creating 725 new edge (22 % increase).
- No of comments increased from 10498 to 13921 ( 3423 new comment = 32 % increase ).
- Modularity changed from 0.313 to 0.346
Role of moderators
As indicated above the network expanded during this period of time. This included different interactions between moderators and members. Below is a look into the activity of moderators during this period of time.
Since most community moderators are involved in different projects plus some community management tasks. Not all interactions are LOTE4 related, except for Natalia, as the node was inactive until she took the responsibility to coordinate LOTE4 which included a lot of different tasks as explained here.

// k and Kei . 2 accounts for the same person ?
// the moderators = the accounts that has the content manager and/or site admin, not all are taking the role of community management. this should be taken in consideration.
1- about Noemi D6 node, it’s confusing since both ( Noemi and Noemi D6 ) link to the same account yet having 2 different nodes.
looking at both accounts, both are old accounts but one is not used ( the content manager one not the site admin) since 2 years.
so edgesense sees them as 2 separate accounts ( but linking them to the same url )
the question : there is no duplication in mapping Noemi ? Noemi is mapped as 2 accounts ?
2- about Alessia mentioned above : why I can’t see any activity in the profile page ? although edgsense mapped a lot of activities
Answered by Alberto in the comments below
- As the network grows and become more complicated with time, it would be cool to filter nodes with time also. to make it visible which accounts didn't contribute in 2-1 year or 6 month. it would make it easier to spot the people who were active but left the community by time ( the user life cycle ).
// the new sub-communities do that with the different colours.
- would be helpful also when hiding sub-communities, the calculations of no of nodes and edges could show for the only showen communities and ignores the hidden ones.
- showing who are the "recently active nodes" in a separate pad.
