Positive correlation with number of editors
I agree. My understanding is that it is more related to extended conflicts between editors than simple overwork. Also hasty deletionism seems to result in early withdrawals. Sloppy inclusionism might on the other hand dilute the average quality of content.
As wp gets older, it's harder to jump in. We've added many new rules and often can't even find the guide pages for all the customs we've internalized. Getting new content without requiring all stakeholders to actually edit could be a welcome change. For example Flickr's practice with licensing results in large volumes of Commons-compatible media. We should get people, esp. those with no desire to edit wikipedia themselves, to license their current media (incl. texts) with wp-compatible licenses. Our numerous copyeditors, wikifiers and uploaders would process the data. --Ras 07:45, 29 November 2009 (UTC)
