Questions regarding Wikipedia users' motivation
by Mehrotra, Niki (US - Chicago)
I am new to Wikipedia and am involved in an organization that wishes to
incorporate wiki-style features into an existing internal collaboration
tool. I have looked into Wikipedia's structure and understand that all
processes related to quality control are completely self-driven on the
part of its contributors. What do you think motivates the average user
to contribute as much as he or she does? What incentive do the
individuals have to devote much of their time to monitor pages? One of
our challenges will be getting our organization's members to use the
wiki once we roll it out. Thank you for your time and help.
