Wikipedia tightening rules



The wikipedia is changing their rules a bit, to prevent anonymous users from creating new articles. Now to create an article, you must be logged in with an account. This is in part a response to a couple of recent stories about articles that were edited anonymously. Eventually I see it making sense to have users log in for ANY change to be made to an article create/edit/delete/etc. I know it may seem like a pain, but ultimately that would make it easier to trace an editor that was doing harm to the content.


Of course, in some cases I can see why there would be a desire to have anonymous submissions. At this point in time, article will still be able to be edited anonymously (which is where part of the “controversies” have been centered.) The problem really is that some articles may not have the traffic to have the kind of oversight that would be ideal.
