Abstract: This paper describes the preliminary development stages of an agent-based model (ABM) used to understand and anticipate changes to Wiki pages. A discrete space approach was used to structure the model. Letters from words in the wiki were represented as agents which could be changed, deleted, or added based on rates derived from wiki page histories. A C# pre-processor, called Wiki-Hist-Heist, was developed to facilitate analysis of existing wiki page histories and provide model inputs based on detected patterns and resulting distributions. The conceptual version of the Wiki Page ABM was built using AnyLogic. It provided a framework for user-friendly features which allow easy changes to inputs so a variety of pages and scenarios can be modelled. Additionally, this project illustrated the usefulness of ABM in this domain. Limitations and future study directions are included.
