Sammanfattning: Wikipedia has since its inception in 2001 become the world’s largest encyclopedia and continues to enjoy a high degree of support from the general public. This report investigate differences in the user creation process of content between political and unpolitical articles. According to the results the revisions per user follow a similar pyramid pattern in both the political and unpolitical articles. When investigating the number of reverts the results differ between the political and unpolitical articles. More reverts are made by semi active users in the political articles.  The report also establish that some political categories exhibit a significantly longer edit history than the Wikipedia average and that these categories contain a disproportionately high number of reverts among their revisions.  Conclusions are that there are differences between political and unpolitical articles in regard to who do reverts and the number of reverts per page.
