After the boom, is Wikipedia heading for bust? – tech – 04 August 2009 – New Scientist
So, is Wikipedia headed out? Some scientists have found that:
“The number of articles added per month flattened out at 60,000 in 2006 and has since declined by around a third. They also found that the number of edits made every month and the number of active editors both stopped growing the following year, flattening out at around 5.5 million and 750,000 respectively.”
I have to wonder if their changes in who can edit has caused this shift. People still look at it (I do) to kick off research.
