My First Wikipedia experience

My thoughts? It's shit. Don't get me wrong, Wikipedia, from a consumptive standpoint, is wonderful. Particularly for the info I'm looking for (must be the demographic)-- technical more often than not, or just quick bits of data on particular subjects.

But unfortunately, when I tried to add TUAW and Download Squad's April Fool's jokes to this list they were removed. No reason why, just gone, poof. Worse, my "watch" of the article disappeared.

Maybe in a couple of years they'll have this all figured out... Now I'm trying to dig in and find out, but it honestly isn't worth the time. There's a lot of learning to do, and I'm too busy with this thing called life to bother with it...

So long Wikipedia, and thanks for all the fish.

Someone else was editing the article at the same time. It's a very horrid flaw.

Well that certainly is damn annoying, but knowing what I do about databases, a necessary evil. Thanks!
