Cool. Thanks for taking my suggestion.

I don't understand why people are so worried that it's unreliable. They have some people who are extraordinarily dedicated to fixing up bad articles.

Wikipedia is just a bunch of pages created by people who have alot of time on their hands. And they can all be edited by an average user unless the original creator locks the page. We can all go to a Sony Wiki and post in huge bold letters "PSP SUCKS" chances are someone will see it, but they do not need to edit it back. Sometimes it will sit there for a few days.

Cool

Wikipedia is primarly a global public information outsource engine
for online users to look up relevant information and history.

A big copying and pasting site for us college students....lol.

But yes, the information posted on some articles maybe a bit construed, ir not lacking of evidence/backing if not made up all together.

But that can't make up for the fact that Wiki is FREE.

If you want honest to goodness info,
buy an Encarta.


Rockn.

Regardless of this, I find that Wikipedia is my favourite media resource ever, and it has never been incorrect. The reason why it takes so long for a page to be edited is probably because so many people are making a mockery of wikipedia by just making pages with unreliable facts for no purpose.

Wikipedia can be a little unreliable if you ask me. >_> Still it's my favorite information resource, after Encarta of course.

I think you just have to be careful what information you get from it. Don't take it's word for concrete fact, but I've never had a real problem with it before. ^.^ (It's helped me with plenty of physics homework in the past...)
