5. Why isn't this site more restrictive? Many pages look chaotic and don't respect the format.
This site is visited from very different people, from all over the world, different cultures, different education and computer usage levels. So making the site very restrictive will result in less information, because many people are not familiar with mediawiki engine or they simply don't have time to format their contribution. But as the site grows, we get more editors and the information will be more accurate and the site will look much cleaner.
