     I've been involved in computing since before Eternal September (1993; ) I edited Wikipedia in early years, joined by 2007-1-3. I was very knowledgeable of policies and guidelines, help areas (such as IRC and for dispute resolution,) some Wiki tools and voting on Wikimedia projects, but because past Wikipedia:Mediation groups wouldn't mediate for some and there isn't a mediation group anymore, I felt discouraged so am a rare/inactive editor. The menu at top leads to basic information on these and academic writing resources.

Wikipedia is not a reliable sourceEdit

     Wikipedia is not a reliable source definitely in the case that its articles can't reference its other articles, but also now generally in the academic world. BBC mentioned a study describing Wikipedia tends to be equally as accurate as, or more accurate than, top encylopedias... but Wikipedia also has articles altered by vandalism/blanking, people pushing non-neutral viewpoints (or being deluded they are neutral, or some version of ‘neutral’ seen more out-of-date) and a large degree of conformity/groupthink/bureaucracy, and an overall Wikipedia viewpoint, because of editor majority demographics, administrators' popular sociopolitics, deletionism/etc. (and on the other hand, creation of too many irrelevant popular culture articles, often named historical terms until fixed, changed back, explained, fixed,) scandals & the [cabal], and because 90% to 95% of humans are irrational, mostly sophists & many trolls. Wikipedia used to seem helpful for writing various papers, such as computer-related, but now has been seen as a poor (usually banned) source for any level academic papers on subjects such as humanities & social science, and probably all science (though may be okay place to find sources cited, and check, but not as good a library, best with a professional reference libraria of higher academic degree.)
     The wiki concept & Mediawiki software seem to be Wikipedia's best things, rather than some of the material, which you may find better elsewhere like other literatur including books and from experts/schools, peer-reviewed wikis.
