Submission + - Has Wikipedia Jumped the Shark? (wikipedia.org)

The Cunctator writes: "A comprehensive analysis of Wikipedia logs by Wikipedian Dragons flight shows that editing rates on Wikipedia have not only stopped their exponential growth, but started declining around the beginning of 2007. Article deletions, blocks, protections and uploads have all decreased in recent months. Is it the cumulative effect of the increasing restrictions on new article creation, the ossification of the adminship process, and the aggressive influence of those who prefer deletion of stubs to creation and those who prefer massive, Encarta-like articles to multiple discrete entries? Or maybe Wikipedia is complete!"
