How to Edit a Wikipedia Page

Published Post author

Editing a Wikipedia page is easier than most people think. First, you must create an account at the top right of any Wikipedia article. Once an account has been created, click on the “edit this page” tab on any article of your choice. It’s best not to start with anything familiar to avoid any biased information. Wikipedia takes an objective stance on all the information provided.

When adding new information, be sure to study the subject being edited thoroughly using reputable sources, such as newspapers and books; quoting bloggers is not acceptable. Cite the material correctly. If help is needed enter “WC:Cite” into the search box on the left and instructions will appear on how to properly cite the source.

The most important thing to remember when editing an article is to stay objective and add correct information. Anything incorrect will be deleted by other editors and malicious or biased information will be eliminated. Also, never edit or write an article about yourself, as it is considered conflict of interest.

After the edit is complete hit the “show preview” button. When satisfied with the adjustments, hit the “save page” button and the changes will be saved on the article. Click “Watch” to see the edits made and “Diff” to see if any new edits were made by another contributing editor.

Get Your Wiki is a Wikipedia writers company which allows experienced editors to create and edit any articles submitted by brands, public figures, and non-profits.

How to Get Better at Writing Wikipedia Articles

Published Post author

Writing and editing articles on Wikipedia is not as easy as following the rules of grammar. Wikipedia has its own set of rules and guidelines that are different from existing rules of grammar and syntax: formatting rules, content suggestions, and a different style of writing. The complete list of rules for Wikipedia services can be found on GetYourWiki.com, but here are some great tips for beginners who are just starting writing articles.

Wikipedia should be informative — it is an encyclopedia — but content should not be overly large. Anything more than fifty kilobytes of writing should be revised and condensed so only the most important parts are covered. With that being said, lots of text can fit in fifty kilobytes, so you don’t have to limit your writing too much.

Use references and citations disclosed in the footnotes, and make sure those sources are linked to the sentences or paragraphs that cover that subject. Readers are looking for informative articles and entries when they visit Wikipedia, not articles that are read for leisure or enjoyment.

Composing, editing, translating, and monitoring a Wikipedia page that you have contributed to can be difficult and time consuming. Get Your Wiki is a website that composes Wikipedia articles, and can offer a quote within 24 hours. They can be found on their website, www.GetYourWiki.com, where more information can be found.

Get Your Wiki is known as one of the most popular service providers of its type. The company monitors your article, and is alerted when the article is edited. Some people want to change the content and structure of an article for whatever reason, although most people do not have these bad intentions.

Do not include any fluttery or any phrases or words that are not necessary in getting the information across. The presentation of the words do not matter, really: the literature does not have to be interesting or seem like a New York Times writer wrote it. Some of the phrases that should not be used include describes the, refers to, and is a term. If the sentence is formatted correctly, there should be no need for you to add phrases such as these to the body of the article.

Writing a Wikipedia is not that difficult, unless one is not familiar with the rules. The list of rules is not extensive, and can be found on Wikipedia’s official website.

Making the Most Out of Your Time on Wikipedia

Published Post author

Wikipedia is a well-known source for any and all information, especially pop culture. Wikipedia is one of the most-looked up pages when it comes to social information. Did you know that the site is currently looking for new talent?

Do you have what it takes to make it on Wikipedia?

Before you answer, allow me to go through some guidelines for writers and editors. This will help make it easier for those who do want to take up a side job on the site to create a Wikipedia page through Get Your Wiki.

THE VALUE OF WOMEN

Women have been making some really great strides. Women have been fighting for equality, and have won some major battles. Wikipedia, however, is still mostly dominated by men. This is slowly changing, but there is still more work to be done.

With that being said, allow me to clue you in on a few things. When it comes to women writers on Wikipedia, it’s not a good idea to advertise the fact you are a woman. I am not saying this to hurt you. I am saying this to help you. With Wikipedia still being so largely dominated by men, it’s best to just come in and do your job. Do not go into this work as a way to “preach on” about the value of women. I have known some women who have done this. These women got blasted.

When you create your profile, learn to be more anonymous. When creating a nickname, do not draw attention to yourself. In other words, do not make a big deal about it. It should be about the work, not anything else.

When writing your articles, state the facts only. Some women have a hard time leaving their emotions at the door. When it comes to Wikipedia, you do need to check yourself at the door. Let your emotions go, even if you do not agree with what is being said.

This advice actually comes from 3 very successful writers/editors on Wikipedia. These women learned early on that if they wanted to get noticed and succeed, they had to play the game.

DON’T BE A FRAUD

I have said this before, and I will say it again. Double check your facts, even if you are just editing. Once you put it out there in Wikipedia, it’s out there. If you are writing any article, you have to know what you are talking about. Too many writers in the past made this mistake. These men/women just did what they wanted. Their reputation got ruined because of it. Reputations have a way of getting ruined, even before they start. Do not let this happen to you.

It’s a job, so treat it as such. Remember to be professional, but don’t lose your head or sense of humor. Have fun with it.
