These types of errors are not good for Wikipedia’s reputation however now that I have edited an article I am surprised that it was not detected at first glance. Although Wikipedia states that there is no editor that is not entirely true as there is a “User Talk” function that informs you if there is an incomplete update and so deletes off the article.

What makes some of us sceptical of Wikipedia? The freedom that it gives everyone the opportunity to input, update and delete information. We want the man or woman in the big office signing off a checklist to ensure all information is correct. We want to know someone and not everyone is in charge.

One of the advantage’s to Wikipedia is that it does not allow for academic arguments, original research or opinions. I enjoyed keeping the article fact based as it keeps the information clear and concise.
