is a study/commentary here on the decline in the numbers of volunteer wikipedia editors

http://www-users.cs.umn.edu/~halfak/publications/The_Rise_and_Decline/

interesting comment from the full study is:

Wikipedia has changed from “the encyclopedia that anyone can edit” to “the encyclopedia that anyone who understands the norms, socializes him or herself, dodges the impersonal wall of semi-automated rejection and still wants to voluntarily contribute his or her time and energy can edit”.
