• Wikidata is a community-driven knowledge graph which has drawn much attention from researchers and practitioners since its inception in 2012. The large user pool behind this project has been able to produce information spanning over several domains, which is openly released and can be reused to feed any information-based application. Collaborative production processes in Wikidata have not yet been explored. Understanding them is key to prevent potentially harmful community dynamics and ensure the sustainability of the project in the long run. We performed a regression analysis to investigate how the contribution of different types of users, i.e. bots and human editors, registered or anonymous, influences outcome quality in Wikidata. Moreover, we looked at the effects of tenure and interest diversity among registered users. Our findings show that a balanced contribution of bots and human editors positively influence outcome quality, whereas higher numbers of anonymous edits may hinder performance. Tenure and interest diversity within groups also lead to higher quality. These results may be helpful to identify and address groups that are likely to underperform in Wikidata. Further work should analyse in detail the respective contributions of bots and registered users. ()
