Closing[edit] The L.A. Times Wikitorial was closed on June 19, 2005. This was due to a vandal inserting multiple pictures of goatse.[1] Around 4:30 AM local time the vandal was changing the site to pornographic photos and just as quickly, within seconds, a guardian was reverting it to the earlier editorial. Shortly after 5:00 AM the connection was broken and the Wikitorial ceased to be available. Readers who access the site find this message: Where is the wikitorial? Unfortunately, we have had to remove this feature, at least temporarily, because a few readers were flooding the site with inappropriate material. Thanks and apologies to the thousands of people who logged on in the right spirit. During the two days the Wikitorial was available it had changed from the original length (just under eleven hundred words) to just over twenty-seven hundred words. Several experienced Wikipedians offered suggestions for the organization of the Wikitorial.


Wikitorial II[edit] This section does not cite any sources. Please help improve this section by adding citations to reliable sources. Unsourced material may be challenged and removed. (December 2009) (Learn how and when to remove this template message) South Dakota's Argus Leader has inaugurated a new online feature called You Re-Write-It Editorials. It follows the Wikitorial pattern with the main difference from the Los Angeles Times experiment being that the moderators will check the editorials before posting them to avoid the problems experienced by the Los Angeles Times.
