does anyone screen the input?
read the first paragraph
I don't get it?
Anybody can edit, but if people edit with the intention of deliberate misinformation, they get the cane
now that is strange. i only looked her up cos she is on 9 out of 10 cats right now and that first paragraph was calling her an old slapper! someone's obviously edited it within minutes i can only assume?
took about 4 hours for someone to revert it
just in time for her appearance? someone at channel 4 surely?
Anyone can edit it but it will get changed back pretty sharpish if there is spam or blatent mis-information
Theyve got some pretty quick wiki mods/admins on there.
I was rather drunk one night and got annoyed that in a page about some element of proper classical architecture there was a huge section (bigger than the rest of the whole article) about prime examples of it and they were all random American buildings, so in an angry disgust I deleted the whole section...by the next morning someone had replaced it all.
you dont need to be a mod/admin to revert/undo an edit.
Yeh, it's pretty amazing.
There was a good one about Robbie Keane, got it on my other PC somewhere.
The Hitler page is locked for editing, I know that. I think every other one is fair game for morons.
Its pretty easy to roll it back. And as reflux said, some pages are locked and can't be edited, if you need to add something new you'd have to request it in the discussion page.
Quite a few pages are locked for various reasons.
You can also watch pages and get informed if someone makes an edit. Hence why any changes you make tend to be quickly pounced on by the hard core wiki users/contributers/mods if they are malicious or just plain wrong
Didn't some fact checking company do comparisons of Wikipedia and Encyclopedia Britanica and find them generally as accurate as each other?
Anyone remember this? lol
