[ScienceRoll] Overview of the recent serious Wikipedia scandal « ScienceRoll: Wikipedians know this and will often ask me for help on specific articles or to resolve a question or dispute relating to some medical topic.

[Crooked Timber] The Wikipedia deletion game ” Crooked Timber: Deleting such content that doesn’t improve is also a way to keep up the standards of the remaining content that serves as the template for new content: new contributors model their work on existing related articles, and in the past large sectors of Wikipedia on the intellectual periphery grew into low-quality mazes of content that have since been replaced by smaller numbers of much-better-contextualized articles that are more useful to those unfamiliar with the topics. Coverage of Pokemon is a good example: there used to be separate articles for every one of the hundreds of Pokemon, and now most of that has been culled down to combined lists that, for someone who cares more about Pokemon’s place in the world than the world of Pokemon, the content is more useful (and easier to maintain).
