Hi, in the website of wikipedia,everyone can edit the acticles and modify others' contents. If you want to know the difference between two versions, you can click the "compare button" to find the difference in the history versions. Your contribution is very important to the development of wikipedia. Do you always access the website of wikipedia? Do you always cite the contents from wikipedia?

Hello friend. I used to use wikipedia a lot when I was active at pickjack for getting some interesting and helpful information. I think that it is a very good site that is so helpful. I still love to use it though not as frequently. I know that we can modify some of the facts there to make them more exactly correct...

I agree with you. I think many people participate in the items to ensure the information more correct. Maybe when we cite the information from on wikipedia, we can cite the original resources of the contents. When we want to use it in the academic paper, we should be cautions.

I hardly ever use wikipedia! It is very unreliable, at best. Because anyone can access it, the information is often wrong. I know of a college professor who purposefully put wrong information on there to prove a point to his students. There were even times when the students turned in that information as part of papers! Wikipedia is good, in theory. But I just cant trust it!

Yes, I agree with you that the spirit of wikipedia is good. Many people can modify the information, maybe this can ensure the quality of the items. I think we can use the wiki technology to do collaboration work in a team.

I use Wikipedia almost exclusively to find information on Anime, generally the site is pretty up to date. I don't really "cite" the information from the site though, because much of it isn't based on multiple sources of information.
