I want to share my experience using Wikipedia first. There seems to be plenty of minor mistakes in articles while reading. As mistakes may happen it can be corrected by some other editor. But while looking at the profile of Veronica actress Sandra Escacena I found name of some Indian guy in the spouse section. These are intentional deeds which must be monitored. So in order to check the genuineness of the editors there must be some effective methods. Having a strong regional representatives who have knowledge in particular sector is good. Lets say I am good at sports reporting then I should be granted some sports badge which can be upgraded as local, regional, national and global. A proper observation of the article must bee made by them before making it live. Also frequent regional wiki meets is most. It makes editors and users more involving.
