Wikipedia to apply more stringent content rules



According to El Pais, the wikipedia will begin applying more strict rules to the content of articles and revisions. The wikipedia is a large publicly collaborated encyclopedia at wikipedia.org.


Among some interesting notes coming out of the first conference related to the Wikipedia…. The collection of articles in wikipedia is growing by 3,000 per day, with 16,000 registered users. There are over 145 million words in the English language version alone over 475,000 articles. It is currently available in over 200 languages, with a total of 1.3 million articles.

Related to tightening controls on content, this will be to prevent vandalism and maintain integrity of the content. A recent example of vandalsm was cited. It’s also interesting to note that the views of a German encyclopedia maker and Microsoft are sought out for their opinions on the Wikipedia (needless to say, they’re not quite sold on the idea.)
