Flagged Revisions on the Indonesian #Wikipedia

When I hear about quality and smaller Wikipedias, I often wonder how to reconcile a need for growth and a need for quality. The Indonesian language Wikipedia is doing really well; its traffic has grown 100%, it added 23K articles in the last year.

Adding flagged revisions to a wiki is an administrative burden. It will require dedication from the people who may currently be more involved in writing articles. Activities like a possible follow up on the Bebaskan Pengetahuan competition will have to be modified.

It will be interesting to learn what the effects will be on the development of the Indonesian Wikipedia. I hope it will not stunt its growth.
