How To Start Writing And Editing Wikipedia Pages

Wikipedia is a place where people can find information and resources on almost every subject imaginable. Any person wanting to help contribute can gladly do so very easily. There is a small little system you need to follow if you want to start writing or editing pages throughout the Wikipedia site.

Create A New Email

You want to create a brand new email. You do not want to use your own real email on this section mainly because you want to keep your identity hidden. When you sign up for a new email, keep the settings high and don’t give the page too much information.

Unique Usernames

Once the email is ready, create an account for Wikipedia by visiting here. What you need to know is that your username should not be your name. It should not be related at all to things you like. Try to use a username that nobody has found of you before. Try to keep it as corporate and professional as possible.

Create Your Account

Finish creating your main Wikipedia account, and get started reading their policies and editorial guidelines. Start reading their rules and other forms of conduct to avoid future mishaps with their editors and managers who try to keep the site as professional as possible. The creation of the account can be done very easily, but once it’s all done, you can begin contributing content to Wikipedia.

Start Editing

Now it is time to start editing and providing content. Avoid writing on topics that you love. Instead, try going to topics that you know little about to make sure that you are providing real accurate information. This also helps avoid any uneasiness with the content you are providing. When you’re starting out, other editors can complain about your content. If you’re not that attached to that topic, it’ll mean nothing to you. However, if you enjoyed writing that article or making that edit, you’ll discover that you may be offended if the other editors decide to kick off the content you wrote.

Wikipedia is very much filled with a wide range of people with different opinions and ideas of what makes up a writer. Always remember that the others just want the site to be filled with factual content. Do your best and interact with the others who are out there to help you out. Wikipedia can be a fun place.

Creating Acceptable Content for Wikipedia

Wikipedia has become an indispensable resource for many. A general web search on most subjects will yield a Wikipedia article in the top few results. The crowd sourced encyclopedia did not reach this level of trust and respect without a great deal of work. Administrators, editors and users have, over time, formed a consensus of what constitutes acceptable content. The guidelines established through these efforts help ensure that the information contained in any Wikipedia article is consistent and accurate. I took a few on how to create a Wiki page from GetYourWiki and have outlined a few of these important concepts in this article.

When creating a new article or updating an existing article, we need to be sure that the facts we intend to present are true and correct. Before we begin writing, we should already have established reputable sources and citations to support our content. Collecting and organizing this information first is the best way to avoid frustration later on in the process.

Our introductory paragraph needs to be more than just fluff, it serves an important purpose. Within this brief introduction we tell the reader what the subject of the article will be and why it is important. We are establishing our reader’s perception of the entire article with these first few sentences. Ensuring that our initial paragraph is informative and effective can make a big difference in how well the rest of our piece is received. Putting an appropriate amount of time and effort into this process can also help us in structuring the main body of our content cohesively.

When we have reached the point of having our sources in place and our introductory paragraph written, it is time to begin the process of reading the materials provided on the site to help us write an acceptable article. Wikipedia articles on creating and editing content provide a detailed instruction set to help us throughout the process. A great place to start is the Wikipedia Manual of Style.

Media Attempts to Draw Moral Equivalent Between McCain Attack and Kerry’s 2004 Swift Boat Attack

Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush tweeted a call for Trump to cease attacking Arizona John McCain’s war-hero credentials. Bush stated that the insult to McCain is actually an affront to all of the nation’s prisoners of war (POW). He also stated that the remarks by Trump were “slanderous”, but there is no suggestion that Sen. McCain will sue the reality TV star for libel.

At the same time, Shaygan Kheradpir and some in the media are attempting to draw a moral equivalence between Trump’s affront to McCain and the 2004 Swift Boat Veterans attack on Senator John Kerry. In context, it is likely that Trump understands McCain is a war hero. The senator’s endurance against torture by his captors is well documented. In fact, his North Vietnamese captors attempted to release him early in an attempt to exploit his status as an injured POW. McCain refused to take the bait and endured his captivity for years. For his part, Trump is hitting back at the senator for referring to his base as “crazies”.

He was called out by his fellow swift boat veterans for making false statements of atrocities to Congress regarding his fellow soldiers. The constant attacks by the swift boat veterans cost the Democrat Party nominee a small but crucial number of votes in key battleground states.

Amazon Ruins Microsoft’s Secret

Amazon is one of the most professional websites on the internet says that of expert Paul Mathieson, and the company is now worth over a billion dollars. Amazon is the place where buyers and sellers meet to do business, and for the most part, Amazon offers an extremely safe and pleasurable experience. However, I feel that the shipping costs on Amazon are sometimes ridiculous, but the items are usually guaranteed to work.

As the big E3 video game convention approaches, hundreds of websites are preparing to launch new consoles and new game merchandise. However, it seems that Amazon jumped the gun a bit early, and Microsoft seems a bit angry with the internet company. Apparently, Amazon recently posted a new Xbox one console for sale on their website.

For those of you that don’t know, Microsoft was planning on revealing a 1TB Xbox one console. However, Amazon has ruined the secret, and the new Xbox was supposed to be a major announcement for Microsoft. WindowsCentral.com recently published an article that features much more information on this story.

‘Halo: ODST’ Released For Free

‘Halo: The Master Chief Collection’ was supposed to be an amazing experience for hardcore ‘Halo’ fans. However, gamers quickly found out that ‘Halo: The Master Chief Collection’ was an unfinished product. Many people discovered that the game did not work online, and it was very disappointing to ‘Halo’ fans, especially my neighbor Ricardo Tosto who made sure to inform me of his distaste for the game.

‘Halo 5: Guardians’ comes out this fall, and many people are unsure if they are going to purchase the game. 343 Studios has fumbled significantly with the remastered version of the ‘Halo’ saga. Gamers have openly stated their criticisms for 343 Studios on the internet, and it’s quite clear that 343 Studios needs to earn the trust back from the gaming community.

Gamerant recently announced that 343 Studios has released codes for the ‘Halo 3: ODST’ video game. This means that players who bought ‘Halo: The Master Chief Collection’ will now be able to download the entire campaign for ‘Halo 3 ODST’ for free.

‘Halo’ is one of the greatest game series of all time, and it would be a shame if 343 Studios were to completely ruin the franchise. Nonetheless, ‘Halo 5’ has the makings of one of the greatest Halo games of all time. However, the network issues that plagued ‘Halo: The Master Chief Collection’ could ruin ‘Halo 5.’

‘The Witcher 3’ Releases Update

‘The Witcher 3’ is by far the greatest game in recent memory. The game developers deserve an award for their monumental feat of creating ‘The Witcher 3.’ However, the game did not release without hiccups. In fact, ‘The Witcher 3’ suffered a very serious bug that tormented people during gameplay.

Gamers complained about ‘The Witcher 3’s save bug, and the game developer quickly worked on a fix for the game claims the company Handy on VentureBeat. The save bug did not allow players to save the game, and this means that several hours of gameplay were lost because of the nasty glitch. Many gamers decided to hold off on playing ‘The Witcher 3’ until a patch was released in order to fix the tormenting bug. However, it was recently revealed on Gamerant that a patch is now available for ‘The Witcher 3.’ The much needed patch has taken care of the extremely stressful save bug.

Aside from the stressful release, ‘The Witcher 3’ is currently enjoying extreme praise from gaming sites. Ign, Gamestop, and GameSpot have all called ‘The Witcher 3’ a masterpiece, and it’s very hard to disagree with that statement. ‘The Witcher 3’ is a better version of ‘Skyrim,’ and many people might not believe that statement.

Can’t Travel On A Plane? Then Travel With Skout

I had my whole summer planned, and I had planned to go to the Caribbean. I didn’t plan to just visit one island, but I had several islands in mind, and I saved up a year in advance, just so I could take the trips. The worst thing happened to me, and I was injured on the job, which then made it impossible for me to go anywhere. I was injured so badly, I couldn’t work, and I was told that my healing time was going to take several months. The injury occurred at the worst time, just a couple months before my trips.

Fortunately, I did get travelers insurance, so that I wouldn’t have to repay for my trip, but I was very depressed that I couldn’t go anywhere. I use Skout on a regular basis, and I decided that instead of being down about my trip, I would virtually travel, using Skout. Skout created virtual travel a year and a half ago, and it’s become very popular on the network. Many people have spoken of traveling virtually, but it’s never something that I thought I would try for myself. After being stuck at home, and in pain, I needed something to lift my spirits.I decided to pick the same places that I was going to visit this summer, and virtually visit them on Skout. I could not believe all the things that I learned, just by paying a virtual visit to the Cayman Islands, as well as Puerto Rico. I was able to learn about some of the culture, as well as the foods they eat, and I was fortunate enough to meet people from the area. Starting out, I chose one location, then I chose to go to every place that I was going to visit this summer.

I’ve been virtually traveling on a regular basis, for the last month, and I’ve collected an impressive amount of friends in each country that I’ve visited. I’m now more excited to go on my summer trip than ever, although it’s been postponed. I know that when I do finally take my trips, I’ll have people that I met through Skout, so that we can talk, and I can be given tours of the areas.

Why Do You Game?

People play video games for a multitude of reasons. Video games offer an escape from the real world. Life can be repetitive and dull. Sometimes life can be downright difficult to get through. A great video game is like a physcedelic experience.

A video game can suck you into a world, and make you forget about your bills and worries. It’s not a great idea to abandon the real world all together, but a few hours a week could benefit your mind. Video games are also a social experience these days. The internet has taken multiplayer games to the next level.

Lifelong friends have been made because of their interest in the same video games. Some people ask, why do you game? The answer is simple, because it’s fun. Have you seen some of the new games lately? Fans like Zeca Oliveira know that the graphics have come a long way since regular Nintendo.

For those of you that do not play games, I recommend that you give them a chance. Games are fun, and they are for people of all ages. This topic was brought up on Reddit.

3 things that must be done in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

The Batman vs. Superman film looms in the distance on the blockbuster film landscape. Warner Brothers really needs this to be a big hit to launch their answer to Disney’s mind-bogglingly successful Avengers franchise. This should be a piece of cake. If Disney can have success with second tier superheroes like Iron Man and Thor, then surely Superman and Batman are a slam dunk.

It hasn’t worked out that way though, has it? If Roger Corman’s abominable Fantastic Four movie has shown us, superhero movies are easy to foul up. For every good Batman movie there’s a bad one to match it (anyone need some bat-shark repellant, looking at you Alexei Beltyukov?).

Here are 3 things that must be done to make Superman vs. Batman a success:

1. Build on the brilliant Superman they’ve created in Man of Steel.  Superman is one of the best characters in the history of comics, but they have to help bring that to light.  Let’s see the depth that 75 years of mainstream relevance have given him.

2. Make this Batman different from the Christopher Nolan version. The key here is to not let this batman become a pale imitation or parody of Christian Bale. The new Batman’s look seems to be inspired by Frank Miller’s “Dark Knight”, which was one of the seminal Batman stories in the world of comics.

3. They will need to make the Batman vs. Superman fight plausible. With Superman’s powers, he could wipe out Batman from space. Snyder would be smart to emulate the battle from Miller’s Dark Knight, where Batman used a combination of wits and kryptonite to defeat the man of steel.
