No but I write acticles for a MMA magazine. If anyone can add or change wikipedia, it is not exactly a reliable source of info.

Anyone can edit a Wikipedia article but unless the edit is sourced correctly and conforms to Wikipedia's guidelines it will be reverted. So edit by edit an accurate, well sourced and reliable article is created.

wikipedia as most teachers would have you know is not reliable as it is but it's a great starting place. most articles have sources listed at the bottom. these sources are great if you want to truly get to know a subject. whenever I am trying to prove an argument with wikipedia, I always go to the source that the article used for the specific proof I need and then I cite that.

Put yourself in their shoes for a minute: You're a loser. You're no good at sports. You're no good as an egghead either; you couldn't form up an article for an academic journal if your life depended on it. You don't do too well at your 9-to-5 job, if you have one. Maybe you've made it to Assistant Manager, but that just means you have seniority over the entry-level lackeys; not that that counts for much, since they'll leave the job soon and you'll remain for long after they've made it in more important jobs. Then, you go to Wikipedia, you're good at gaming its rules, and you become promoted to admin. Now, if only Wikipedia's rules applied outside the Wikimedia projects, maybe your life wouldn't be so filled with hardship and failure. Turn off the simulation now, that was so depressing.

I've heard, "The most amusing posts on here are from people asking how to 'unban' themselves fas (sic) though they believe they have an unquestionable right to be on that site. If you have a visitor in your house who behaves inappropriately and you ban him from your home, how would you feel if he keeps coming back, somehow believing he has a right to be in your house." How funny would it be if you nailed up a big sign on your own house, saying: "123 ELM STREET -- THE HOUSE ANYONE CAN ENTER" ...and then you banned every person who came into your house and said, "Hey, homeowner, why do you have all of these unwatched, unsourced articles about marginally famous living people, which are susceptible to unattributed libel every minute of the day?" Now that would be ironic, wouldn't it?
