The completion scores of authored articles in TFe. The y-axis of this graph is the article completion score (ACS), while the bars on the x-axis represent the 176 authored TF articles in TFe (some of which are still works-in-progress), ordered such that higher scoring articles are positioned on the right (for clarity). In this graph, the completion scores of the 176 articles from three different periods - Q2 2009, Q4 2009, and Q2 2010 - are superimposed to demonstrate that the scores have been increasing over time. Within six months of the implementation of the ACS system in Q2 2009, the completion scores of authored TFe articles have increased from 40.6% to 60.2%, thus attesting to the effectiveness of this feedback mechanism (see Q2 2009 versus Q4 2009).
