Wikipedia Steps Up its Monitoring and Recruits Community Managers

Wikipedia Recruiting Community Managers to Monitor Content

Although I reference Wiki on a regular basis for fun facts and trivia, I know that anyone can contribute information, which leaves me at a high risk of quoting inaccuracies. But yesterday, Wikipedia announced that they will be rounding up trusted users to create a pool of volunteer community managers, who will approve data before it's published.

But Wiki won't be covering all its bases — the rule will only apply to submissions on living people. So you can still offer up your insider knowledge on the subplots of BSG (if you are so inclined), but you can't just start publishing deets on Ashton Kutcher without getting it approved. Wiki is hoping that this will curb the amount of false data and keep the site clean, while others think that the extra step shouldn't be necessary. What do you think of the new Wiki rules?
