The changes in the 48 hours after the article left the Main Page were not related to any of the edits from that day that were in place as of the end of that day, excepting the first two minutes of the following day.
Time spent vandalised by IP/new editor edits (hh:mm)
The percentage of edits from IPs or new editors that are vandalism is about 80%, roughly comparable to the rates found in December 2006.
The average percentage of edits from IPs or new edits that are beneficial (either as reversions or addition of content) is also roughly the same (range: 7–15% in December 2006, 8.5–14.6% now). As is the percentage of edits from IPs and new editors that are good content (1.7–7.3%).
The time the page is visibly vandalised is probably much the same (range: 01:33 – 02:20 now; 00:18 – 02:15 two years ago. average: 01:52 now; 02:10 two years ago).
Two years ago, the TFA was protected for an average of 13% of the time while on the Main Page. In this study, the articles were not protected for any length of time. This presumably indicates that administrators are now less willing to protect than they were two years ago.
The new accounts created on these three days were not beneficial.
^There was one brief period of protection but it was immediately reversed in the same minute by the same administrator.
^In addition, the article was vandalised for two minutes of the following day, as the final vandal edit of the day was not repaired until after midnight.
