Fears over future of Wikipedia as 49,000 volunteers leave site | Mail Online

Fears are rising that the usefulness of Wikipedia could be undermined as thousands of volunteer researchers abandon the site.

The free internet encyclopedia is one of the world’s most popular websites and uses volunteers to create pages and check facts.

However the English-language version of the site suffered a net loss of 49,000 volunteer ‘editors’ in the first three months of this year, compared with 4,900 for the same period a year earlier, according to a university study.
