    I completely agree that a small percentage of people end up doing the large majority of the work in any endeavor, the old 80/20 rule. 1% seems a little extreme, but if you think about a website, how many of us really write new stuff for the websites we visit every day? It is probably closer to 1% than 20% in that scenario.

    – The study did reveal inaccuracies in eight of the nine entries and exposed major flaws in at least two of the nine Wikipedia articles. Overall, Wikipedia's accuracy rate was 80 percent compared with 95‐96 percent accuracy within the other sources.
    9 articles! Laughable. Also, most of these links refer to old studies. The internet grows fast.

    and the expertise of the posters is not taken into consideration
    Logical fallacy right there ... an argument can stand on its own regardless of the 'expertise' of who made the argument.

    I'm going to end this post with some relevant light humor.



    Regardless, in any case, the reader should always be equally critical on any information they are reading. Doesn't matter who or where it was said.

    There are 23,300,000 hits questioning wikis accuracy?? Do tell, do you want me to paste all 23 MILLION of them?? Since that is so laughable?

    How does that apply to art?

    Oh, come on... It also have features such as page protection and edit history. Is it perfect? Hell no! Is it better than it's own resources? Ironically, yes. The best thing about Wikipedia is the responsible/transparent representation of various controversial bullshit. After all, I don't think that you can find any online shenanigans that would claim providing us "truth" but conspiracy forums.

    I know many students are copy-paste their projects and that sucks... But... All those big-headed professors can still eat my shorts. Wikipedia introduced more fundamental concepts to the public for free than the ones they managed to explain in their classrooms properly.

    Thankfully I was born before the internet generation so that books, and people were my learning source, rather than wiki... Of course back then a person had to go out and do something to learn, not so much now. Copy and Paste, often will work these days, unless an Annotated Bibliography is requested. That fucks the wiki dependents over royally.

    Something also to note is that Annotated Bibs are becoming more and more prevalent in business, in order to root out the wikipedia types. Its tough when you actually have to go to a real library or worse yet buy an Econ Journal subscription in order to include an article it in an industrial purchasing plan.

    In the real world where things actually matter the 80% max accuracy rate of the Wiki falls short of the 95% average accuracy rate of a normal research paper.

    Everyone wants 100%, but I think 95% is better than 80%, all things being equal.

    You act like people rely on Wikipedia for everything and don't just use it to obtain background information in order to look deeper into related topics and also to check out the sources cited on Wikipedia and potentially use those, if they are actually reliable. I think you just don't understand the concept of Wikipedia. Anything that cites Wikipedia as a source will be looked at as totally illegitimate. Doesn't render it useless.

    Well something brought Annotated Bibliographies to the forefront, so they have left the academic world, and entered the corporate one as a regular theme, rather than a purely scientific motivation.

    Can you think of another source of information that has made Cut and Paste so simple? Wiki is a one stop shop for those who don't need highly reliable information. When people make something that is 80% correct on its best day out to be factual correct, they are deluding themselves.

    I am having trouble understanding why people think that being 80% accurate is perfectly acceptable? Its not in school, its not at work, yet it is online.
