    In this paper, we investigate how Wikipedia editors leave the community, i.e., become inactive, from the following three aspects: (1) how long Wikipedia editors will stay active in editing; (2) which Wikipedia editors are likely to leave; and (3) what reasons would make Wikipedia editors leave. The statistical models built on Wikipedia edit log datasets provide insights about the sustainable growth of Wikipedia.
