Death and Wikipedia

User:Sydwhunte was the first to update the Elizabeth II Wikipedia article following her death.

Death and Wikipedia includes all discussions of how Wikipedia editors present death of people.

Wikipedia contains user-generated content. The Wikipedia community likes to update Wikipedia articles with information about deaths quickly after people die. Many readers seek Wikipedia biographies of those whom they learn are recently deceased.

The media has remarked on the site's quick response in updating biographies after the deaths of celebrities such as Michael Jackson and Elizabeth II.

In 2009 the Wikipedia community adopted new quality control measures to verify information on the biographies of living people, including claims of death.

When a celebrity dies of a disease, then readers may also read about that disease in Wikipedia.
