Death and the Donald topped this year's list of most vigorously edited English-language articles across Wikipedia. The site's "Deaths in 2016" page had more than twice as many edits as the entry for the nation's nuke-boosting president-to-be -- a mildly surprising development until you recall the relentless parade of dead folks this year, from David Bowie and Prince to Fidel Castro and Muhammad Ali.
Based on the number of revisions that appear on each page, this year's "deaths" index was tweaked 18,230 times, while Donald Trump's main entry was edited 8,933 times. The top five was rounded out by a list of Hillary Clinton's endorsements (6,527), a main article for U.S. presidential election (6,162) and one for the GOP primaries (5,715). Despite the intense scrutiny of her during this election season, Clinton's main article was edited a mere 2,082 times. Not that much!
There are only two strictly music-related articles near the top of the list, with an entry on South Korean music at No. 10, with 5,074 revisions, and Kanye West's flawlessly released album The Life of Pablo, which landed at No. 19 for the year with 3,574 edits. No. 20 in the list is occupied by the great painter Vincent van Gogh, at 3,551 revisions.
