Wikipedia to impose an editing layer for articles

Wikipedia, one of the 10 most popular sites on the Web, was founded about eight years ago to provide and create a free encyclopedia from the contributions of volunteers, all with the power to edit, and most probably improve, the content.

The new feature namely “flagged revision” will impose an experienced volunteer editor to review the changes made by public before it goes live on the web. Until the change is not approved by him, it will not be visible to the visitors and they will be directed towards the earlier version.

The change is made to present more mature and predictable publications on the growing influential site. Roughly 60 million Americans visit Wikipedia every month.
