Thread Name: Wow! Read This About Wikipedia
Subject: RE: Wow! Read This About Wikipedia
Gurney, how many submissions do you think that one guy gets? I'd be willing to bet it's not more than a half-dozen each year at most (from random visitors like yourself), and that would be a generous estimate.
Compare and contrast to Wikipedia, which has hundreds of changes a *day*. The original version of Wikipedia actually *did* try to have reviewing by the staff - and it crashed and burned big-time because there wasn't a hope in hell of them achieving it. Wikipedia is structured that way precisely for that reason - because if it's going to be useful then formal reviewing by paid staff isn't possible within their budget. Are you volunteering to donate enough money for them to do so? ;-)
