Subject: RE: BS: Editing Wikipedia
I've edited a few. It was sometimes a little tricky, but I never had to try more than twice.
But prepare yourself. I once rewrote a section on a certain topic (not, I think, one that's been discussed on Mudcat, or that is of much interest to a non-academic) to provide a certain balance and perspective: within twenty-four hours my edit was gone and the original tendentious version was back - without discussion.
After it happened again, I gave up. I have better things to do with my life. Now, at odd moments, I just tidy things up here and there.
