Canberra on Wikipedia?

By 123qwe - 3 December 2008 28

Although I do not hold an opinion that Wikipedia is the be-all and end-all, tonight I did a search on Canberra on their site.

After reading the Canberra story, I was wondering has anything happend here in the last 6 years or so? The last entry from Wikki on Canberra’s history is the bushfires in 2003.

Surely something else of note has occurred here since then. The GDE, DFO, Kevin07???

Unless you work in Prime Minister and Cabinet, you all should be adding this content to the Wikipedia page.

What about the launch of Canberra Goss?

Surely the winner of the beauty contest at the Melbourne Cup Day thingy at the race track could use a bit of wiki style talking up?

LOL! Thats right! That was a massive topic last year. Someone being overcharged $5 for a pizza at APK. That was definately a big moment in Canberra’s history.

someone was overcharged for a pizza; surely that’s worth a guernsey?

That’s the problem with Wikipedia, it has such a narrow view of reality. Personally I think the muppets line is absolutely true.

Thumper 12:40 pm 03 Dec 08

yeah, it is rather pointless.

The muppet comment has been edited.

Go ahead – TRY and add to it and watch your edits disappear under thousands of wik-lawyering control freaks, even if it is sourced, NPOV etc etc. Waste of time.

LOL a truer sentence has never been written on wikipedia!

From wiki

“The Assembly consists of 17 muppets, elected from three districts using proportional representation.”

I don’t know that anything significant has happened in Canberra that really warrants a wikipedia entry.

I’d say the election would be covered under the ACT Government entry, and there might even be a page for the election itself (couldn’t be bothered looking).

Anyway, as blueberry said – if you want some fresh stuff on there, add it yourself. Just make sure it is wikified 😀

Yes it’s no wonder decent menswear doesn’t get sold in Canberra. HB opened which should’ve been a kickstart for companies like Armani Exchange, Massimo Dutti, Hilfiger and Ralph Lauren to setup their own shops.

Holden Caulfield 9:27 am 03 Dec 08

Pfft, DFO opened.

farnarkler 9:14 am 03 Dec 08

Hugo Boss opened.

Wikipedia is a user generated content site. So if nothing has changed it is beacuse nobody has felt like changing it.

How about you write up something and add it to the Canberra Wiki.
