View Full Version : have you ever edited something in Wikipedia?

2005-04-05, 11:18
I was reading an article in Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page) and I edited a spelling mistake which had "it's", that should have been "its". I was not logged in or registered. It seems pretty easy for anyone to edit anything there, so the system is modeled based on the idea that most users are benevolent there. I wonder how many Microsoft Encarta fanboys have tried to vandalize the site using the editing powers there. There is an article (http://www.wired.com/wired/archive/13.03/wiki.html) on Wikipedia in the March issue of Wired.

i edited a couple spelling msitakes a while back but they got it running pretty good over there
just keeps getting new stuff
i think they need a lot of additions
a lot of red words on some pages (for unwritten info pages)
can they legalize ur status as a student reading it all day?

that is the freedom we need
but results are what they want
