It's a search engine type thing. People help other people search for things. If you're working for ChaCha, you help people search for things. You can get a bit more information on it here; http://www.chacha.com/info/guidesignup If you're still interested, feel free to email me, Vhaeos[at]gmail.com.

I love wikipedia! You can find just about everything there! I rely on it quite a bit although sometimes have a little doubt whether everything there is accurate since anyone can submit an entry!! I guess I just have to research other sources to confirm.

I usually go at least twice a day. I look for all kinds of stuff. Like some info on a new movie I saw, something I need for school, something I am not familiar with but I wan't to learn more about it and sometimes I even add informations on the articles if I know something useful about.

I normally go on it twice a day and it is really helpful. I particulaly like the "On this Day" section, and also certain portals. Their pages on the World Wars and military history in general are also very good and probably the best ones on the internet.

Yes Wikipedia is a kind of encyclopaedia containing a precise matter of everything you search for and correspoding links too for exploring the keywords that you are searching for. It is also operated and widened by users' contributions.A user can input his views or information with him to the wikipedia.Its just like one remedy to all pains..From crime to computers, politics, history , philosophy and even many regional informations can be gathered from wikipedia. I visit this site atleast once daily and get neccessary information as well as links.For begining every new lesson one can get a beginner's guide like thing from wikipedia.

I definitly find it helpful. It is a great site. I think it is awesome that it has become so large, considering all of the information entered has been by voulunteers. I don't go a lot, I guess (compared to some of the other posts.) I usually end up there at some point while doing surfing, which happens maybe once a week. But, while getting info there, I ussually end up getting more info from another wiki, then another wiki, etc...

I absolutely find it helpful. At my job, I have a lot of down time with nothing but the internet in front of me, so whenever I see something in a movie or on the news or that I hear in a discussion that I don't know much about...I look them up. Wikipeda is like my best friend at work...I probably go there at least 4 or 5 times a day. And it is wonderful because sometimes you will be looking up one particular thing and the articles will be linked with others and you end up learning about something you normaly have never heard of. From what I can tell, it is extremely accurate. They delete and edit what isn't true almost immediately. The site has a lot of integrity behind it. And you can always do your own research through the internet to back up what you read there. Every time I have done so, Wikipedia has been straight on.
