This paper assesses the content- and population-dynamics of a largecessful outcomes. Their destiny relies on the capacity of project sample of wikis, over a timespan of several months, in order to identify basic features that may predict or induce different types of fate. We analyze and discuss, in particular, the correlation of various macroscopic indicators, structural features and governance policies with speciﬁc growth patterns. While recent analyses of wiki dynamics have mostly focused on popular projects such as Wikipedia, we suggest research directions towards a more general theory of the dynamics of such communities.search on a wide range of wikis at various stages of development.
