...or as they would like to call it, a "progressive fork."
And, by the way, here's the Wikipedia article (well, actually it's a stub)
Hmmmmm "both to allow people a place to work under the direction of experts, and in which personal accountability--including the use of real names--is expected."
I see the reasoning behind this, but a lot of people do not wish to give out their real identity online.
How would they even know if you gave your real name? If you provide a first and last name, they'd have no way to know it's not your real name. Otherwise, they'll only attract all those crackpots who sign every post with their full name, including middle initials.
Unless they intend to verify the identity of everyone that registers. I have no idea how they plan to verify identity, but they restated it in the FAQ and said that anyone that wishes to contribute anonymously still has wikipedia. Funny that on the sign up list, name is "optional"
I don't get why only a satirical parody of http://uncyclopedia.org/wiki/Main_Page" [Broken] credit of being the only encylopedia that anyone can edit.
Separate names with a comma.
