20 most frequently edited Wikipedia articles

I was surprised by some of the articles which are most frequently revised in the Wikipedia. Very frequent revisions would be caused by:

  • Vandalism
  • Controversy
  • Current events

So, I can understand why Adolf Hitler is so high in the list, but “October 2003” really surprised me. I would also be interested to see just how many revisions these articles take. I took a look at the history of the Jesus article and it gets revisions every single day. Most days there are about 10 revisions to the article. So the Wikipedia entry on Jesus is updated several times a day, every day.
