Rosetta Code is very active, and there's too much source code on Wikipedia  
Noticed something amusing taking place on Rosetta Code today. A Wikipedia editor was cleaning up a page on Wikipedia because it had too many source code examples. Rather than delete the source code out-right, he copied it over to Rosetta Code on a Friday morning. He was surprised that within 24 hours, three people had corrected the code and/or added more programming languages, and other people had converged in the new page's talk page to discuss refinement and clarification of the task description.
