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???

I tried.

RA (as a media outlet on the Canberra page) disappeared faster than a whale at a Japanese boat show.

Oh, just use RiotACT as a source or reference in the text and you should get a link to remain without any bother.

They probably can, and would. As a rule I don’t think they allow blogs similar online spaces to have their own page on Wikipedia.

that could be fun.
It would also be hilarious watching all the Nutters changing the entries. he he he

The Canberra Times is listed in the Media section, but RiotAct is not??? A simple oversight but perhaps this should be corrected….

Best of luck arguing this one with the wiki nerds

Skid, warts and all, it’s still a trivia quiz writer’s best friend.

“You may fire when ready!”

Whoops, I missed the word “academic” in your sentence. You can shoulder your arms. No argument there whatsoever.

Anybody citing wikipedia in anything academic should be shot.
Its a useful starting point for getting to better sources, sure.
But its still a quantum encyclopedia, possibly accurate or not, depending on how and when you look at it, and the general mob agreement on a topic.
