  9. 9. Motivation Mo>va>on
 Wikipedia’s
open
source
system
creates
a

 a
community
where
members
can
have
a
 sense
of
belonging,
chance
to
boost
their
 ego‐status
or
have
self
actualizaEon
by
 contribuEng
arEcles,
ediEon
and
approval
 of
other
content
where
they
see
fit.
 Members
are
moEvated
to
contribute
to
 the
largest
encyclopedia
of
the
world,
 giving
them
exposure,
recogniEon,
pride
 and
a
sense
of
accomplishment
all
for
 free.
 A
wikipedian’s
typical
life
cycle
is
based
 on
his
or
her
moEvaEon
to
parEcipate.
As
 long
as
a
member
stays
moEvated
he
or
 she
will
conEnue
to
be
a
part
of
the
 Wikipedia
community.

However,
once
the
 moEvaEon
is
cut
off,
the
wikipedian
will
 cease
to
be
a
member.


The
Wikipedia
 Vicious
Cycle
is
a
big
contributor
of
 destroying
moEvaEon.

  11. 11. How the Virtual Circle is supposed to Work! The
contributors
are
the
backbone
and
 the
meat
of
the
Wikipedia
community.
 Just
like
a
puzzle,
every
piece
is
 important
as
every
contributor
 (registered
or
not)
is
important.
 Without
the
contributors
there
would
 be
no

one
common
goal:
 To

edit
and
provide

valuable
 Mul3language
content
through
a
 collabora3ve
effort
free
to
the
public.

 Care
to
contribute
to
the
puzzle?
