If go to an Encarta article and hit "About Editing Articles" you can see
where the editors there
"Encarta is different from open-content encyclopedias found elsewhere on
the Web that post users' changes immediately". A not-so-subtle hint (not
that it was needed) that this feature has been brought about by Wikipedia.
Will be interesting to see how successful it is... especially since
Wikipedia is heading towards a more locked-down approach towards
offering safe versions of articles. Wonder if we will meet in the middle
