Thread Name: Editing Wikipedia
Subject: BS: Editing Wikipedia
There are several errors in the Wiki entry on Peter Bellamy ~ one that I particularly feel aggrieved by is that it attributes to his obit in The Guardian, which I wrote, a quote from the one in The Independent, which Karl Dallas wrote. Not earth-shattering, but for obvious reasons an irritation to me.
That is not, however, directly what I am writing about. My point is, that I have more than once "edited" the errors I have found, following the instructions given; only to discover, on logging on to the entry again, that nothing has altered and my emendations have not 'taken'.
Out of interest, has anyone else on here ever tried to edit a Wiki entry? And, if so, with what success?
