Wiki dynamics 
What is the net effect of a large wiki (Wikipedia) is on smaller wikis (such as Wikiversity). I have previously suggested that it is natural for wikis to become specialized for a central mission. This naturally leads to the creation of new wikis for content that does not fit with the mission of older wikis. By making links from Wikipedia to Wikiversity, Wikiversity can get a lot of traffic. However, a question then arises for potential Wikiversity participants: "Where am I likely to find an active community of collaborators who are interested in the same things as me?" Does the success of Wikipedia make it hard to attract editors to Wikiversity? Do many Wikiversity participants try editing here, find that the community is too small, and go back to Wikipedia where there is more human interaction?
