Expert editors are important to Wikipedia

Expert editors are important to Wikipedia. Jimmy Wales, a founder of Wikipedia, stated in an article published in Nature:Wikipedia has no formal structure with which to determine whether an editor is a subject-matter expert, and does not grant users privileges based on expertise. This has resulted in public criticism of Wikipedia, alleging that it is hostile to experts and anti-elitist. One such critic is Larry Sanger, co-founder of Wikipedia, former editor-in-chief of Nupedia and founder of the expert-oriented Citizendium encyclopedia project.[2]
