Wikipedia has pulled together a ton of site contributions from over the past 12 months to create a video offering a lightning look at 2014 and to celebrate all the effort that goes into building and maintaining the popular online encyclopedia.
The top searches on Wikipedia for 2013 have been revealed, with TV shows such as Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead proving popular. Movies, celebrities and politicians also appeared high up on the list.
Wikipedia editors have gone after paid "sockpuppet" users allegedly hired by a company called Wiki-PR, which charges hundreds of dollars to write articles. Some 250 such users have been banned from editing the online encyclopedia so far.
Just days before today's anniversary of the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989, Chinese authorities blocked the HTTPS encrypted version of Wikipedia, meaning that the only version available in the country was one that could be (and is) censored.
