How to Edit a Wikipedia Article

How to Edit a Wikipedia Article

Watch more How to Use Internet Search & Web Browsers videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/317521-How-to-Edit-a-Wikipedia-Article

Eager to add your expertise to an article on Wikipedia, the free, online encyclopedia that’s one of the world’s most visited websites? Follow these helpful hints to edit your first article.

Step 1: Consider opening an account
If you’re not already a registered Wikipedia user, consider becoming one. If you edit a piece without registering, the site will record your IP address publicly in the article’s edit history. With an account, you can also start new pages and upload images. To register, click “create account” at the top right of any page.

Step 2: Edit text
To get started, click on the “edit this page” tab at the top of the page. This will bring you to a new page with a text box containing the editable text of the original page. Just start typing! Get help at any time by clicking the link “Help” in the toolbox on the left of any page.

Tip
If you don’t see an “edit this page” tab at the top, it means the page is protected from editing, probably because of a high incidence of malicious changes.

Step 3: Open only what you need
If you’re making just a small change in one part of the article, look for the “edit” link on the right side of each section, and click on the one next to the passage you want to revise. This allows you to make changes in one section without opening the whole article.

Tip
Use the tool bar above the way you would with any word processing program. Don’t worry about strange punctuation marks that might appear; this is just Wikipedia formatting your copy.

Step 4: Source your work
If you’re adding new information, be sure to provide reliable sources that verify your work, or it will likely be deleted. Detailed instructions on the proper way to cite sources can be found by typing WP:CITE into the search box and hitting “Go.”

Tip
Material in books and newspapers generally is considered reliable; the musings of bloggers are not. And don’t bother writing about yourself; it’s considered a conflict of interest.

Step 5: Explain your edit
Briefly explain your changes in the “Edit summary” box at the bottom. Your explanation can run up to 200 characters.

Step 6: Review your changes
Review your changes by hitting the “Show preview” tab at the bottom. If you want to compare your changes to the text you altered, hit the “Show changes” button. Once you’re satisfied with your work, hit the “Save page” button.

Step 7: Check it out
Check out your contribution, which will appear instantly. But be aware that if there are any inaccuracies in your text, someone will soon be editing you. Wikipedia saves all versions, and anyone can view them.

Tip
If you have an account, click the “watch” tab to track changes made to the article. On the “My watchlist” page, click “diff,” to see exactly what has been changed

Step 8: Look for your work
Keep an eye on the featured content on Wikipedia’s front page; the article — with your improvements — may show up there someday!

Did You Know?
Seventy-five percent of Wikipedia edits are made by two percent of users.

Description:
Wikipedia has become one of the most famous websites on the internet today thanks to the plethora of information that is readily available. The Internet has become the main source of knowledge for people around the world. With just a simple typing of some words, the information we need is there in a matter of seconds. With so much information available to us, some people are even questioning why we even have schools anymore when anyone can be trained and educated online these days. The Internet has also given us the ability to share some of the most wonderful fictional stories that the human mind can come up with. But that also means that we are exposed to some of the creepiest and terrifying things that we can come up with. Whether it’s a story of a haunted house, or the violence of the end of someone’s life by another person’s hand, Wikipedia has made some horrifying elements known in our lives.
The crazy thing about Wikipedia is that entries can be created and edited by anyone in the world. As long as you’re a decent writer and can make anything sound true, your additions to Wikipedia can last a decent amount of time online. Here are ten Wikipedia pages that you should never visit, especially if you value a good night’s sleep and having peace of mind. Some of the most fantastic horror movies have been inspired by these Wikipedia pages, and there are only more that will be created as time goes on.

UCSF First U.S. Medical School to Offer Credit For Wikipedia Articles
http://www.ucsf.edu/news/2013/09/109201/ucsf-first-us-medical-school-offer-credit-wikipedia-articles
“UC San Francisco soon will be the first U.S. medical school at which medical students can earn academic credit for editing medical content on Wikipedia.”

Medical Students Can Now Earn Credit for Editing Wikipedia
http://motherboard.vice.com/blog/medical-students-can-now-earn-credit-for-editing-wikipedia
“Starting this winter, medical students at the University of California San Francisco will be able to obtain academic credit from an unlikely source: Wikipedia.”

Using Wikipedia
http://digitalliteracy.cornell.edu/tutorial/dpl3222.html
“As a tool for scholarly research, Wikipedia can be either a grade-killer or a valuable friend, depending on who you ask and what you hope to accomplish using it. What is fairly certain is that your professor won’t let you cite it in a scholarly research paper.”

Citing Wikipedia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia#Citing_Wikipedia
Most university lecturers discourage students from citing any encyclopedia in academic work, preferring primary sources; some specifically prohibit Wikipedia citations. Wales stresses that encyclopedias of any type are not usually appropriate to use as citeable sources, and should not be relied upon as authoritative.”

“Jimmy Wales’ Wikipedia comes close to Britannica in terms of the accuracy of its science entries, a Nature investigation finds.”

10 Creepiest Pages On Wikipedia

10 Creepiest Pages On Wikipedia

Top 10 Wikipedia topics that will creep you out. Some scary stuff on this side of the internet!

Description:
Wikipedia is an endless source of information. Literally, who needs to go to college anymore when all they need to do is get on a computer and search for their topic on Wikipedia? But just as the page can be informative, it can also be extraordinarily creepy to the point where we can all scare ourselves silly. Whether we are looking up legends or truly scary case studies of people who really existed, Wikipedia can be the place where nightmares are made of.
For example, you can research the truly creepy case of black eyed children, who want to invade your space with their creepy all-black eyes and monotone voices. The stories are creepy enough to the point where you will pull the curtains on all of your windows, lock your doors, and ignore any doorbell rings and knocks. The very fact that black eyed children go against the image of innocent children, which are usually harmless.
But Wikipedia pages can also bring on a dose of grim reality, such as the case of Joyce Vincent, who was found dead in her apartment three years after she passed on. It is a product of our worst nightmares; being forgotten. Vincent had cut off contact from many of her friends and loved ones, so when no one heard from her, no one thought twice. Vincent had also prepaid for many of her household services and living off of government benefits for her electricity. When she was found dead, the television was still on. But Vincent’s body was basically nothing but a skeleton and next to a bag of wrapped Christmas presents that never got delivered.
Wikipedia pages can inform us of some of the most fascinating cases of unknown creatures, such as the Flatwoods Monster, the Wendigo, and the Mothman. With startling accounts and pictures to go along with these articles, it certainly makes you wonder if these articles might have an element of truth attached to them. Maybe the intention of these articles isn’t to deter you from going outside, but perhaps staying inside to avoid interacting with these terrifying creatures might very well be worth it.
Then Wikipedia also reminds us how creepy we can be by ourselves by preserving historical evidence of post-mortem photography, where we took creative pictures of the dead in order to preserve memories of that loved one. While the gesture is nice, for those of us today looking back, the practice itself is pretty creepy, especially today where the handling of dead bodies is reserved for the professional caretakers and medical staff.
There is one thing about Wikipedia that needs to be taken into consideration is the fact that anyone can edit a Wikipedia article. Sometimes you have to take the information with a grain of salt, but checking out the sources of these articles is a great place if you want to continue to dig into the creepy subject. There are many more creepy pages out there on the vast online encyclopedia, and this video sheds some light on the ones meant to give you nightmares.
