FILE - In this Sept. 3, 2010 file photo Jimmy Wales, from the US, co-founder and promoter of Wikipedia, attends the "Intelligence on the World, Europe, and Italy" economic forum, at Villa d'Este, in Cernobbio, on the Como Lake, Italy. Wikipedia, the online encyclopedia, says it's losing contributors. Speaking to the Associated Press at the website's annual conference in Haifa, Israel, Wales said Thursday Aug. 4, 2011 administrators are working to simplify what he calls "convoluted" editing templates, which may be discouraging volunteers from contributing.
