    Wiki is heaven for people who are too easily fascinated, like me, haha.  I can start off reading about some government's history for a project, then find myself still at the site hours later, happily feasting off the most random stuff ever, like how Nicole Kidman was...

    Useful

    I find it a useful tool. While it may not be everything, it certainly helps if you're researching a topic. I have even made my own updates where I can verify it from other valid sources or through local knowledge.

    I get a kick out of clicking on linked articles

    or even clicking on the "Random Article" link. Were it not for Wikipedia, I'd have never known what a "glottal stop" was. :-)

    Great For Most Things

    but from time to time you'll search for something and not find any realinfo on it, or find info, but in the form of opinion stated as fact. Still a great site and concept, just make sure not too use it when researching a paper or writing a speech, etc

    Great Resource

    I sometimes find myself playing the wikipedia endless link game. I'll look up something, see something related in the article, think "that's interesting", and click on that. The pattern continues until I suddenly realize I spend an hour reading about stuff I wasn't intending...

    Used On A Frequent Daily Basis.!

    If I can't get an encyclopedia, book version, I love to use Wikipedia as a resource. I find it informative. Most people keep saying its not a reliable resource. But for me I used it for my college essays and book reports and I've got an A- average. So it must be a great source. I...

    Why I Love Wikipedia

    I just love how anything you want, almost anything you want to know, is just a click of a button away... If it weren't for Wikipedia, then it would be a lot harder trying to find information - I know anyone can edit it; but that makes it better so there's always someone who knows...

    ... of the future of information. Have you seen wikibooks (http://www.wikibooks.org/) and wikiversity? (http://www.wikiversity.org/)  Definitely worth checking out if you haven't already. I think there is a real strength to opening up information to the masses while...

    it may not be the world's credible source, but it sure does contain a lot of information about almost everything in the entire universe! ok, that may be an exaggeration but you know what i mean, fellow wikipedia-lovers.

    Wikipedia Is The Best

    Most of the Time

    I love searching through all the articles and finding out things I didn't know. The one thing I don't like though is that wikipedia can't give a straight answer. I wanted to know how protein is good for you, but, no, wikipedia didn't mention that, just went on about amino acids...

    I Can Read Stuff For Hours.

    I can read stuff on Wikipedia for hours. Often I'll search one thing, and I'll find so many other things through the words that go to another link. And then I'll have ten different tabs open and will try to check them out. Of course, I also check out the links on the tabs I...

    Aaah, Wiki...

    Random Article Button

    I am obsessed with it! Ok so a lot of the random articles are pointless crap that I don't care about, but every once in awhile I find something worth reading that I normally wouldn't even think to look up otherwise. ^.^

    Useful

    I like Wikipedia and use it for looking for random stuff - ie meanings for certain words or to find out information about people. It certainly comes in handy although I did notice previously that some of the article were out of date.

    You Can Find Anything !

    I often wondered how it'd be if wikipedia didn't exist. My school homework'd last much longer to do. You can find almost everything there- and I love that it's open and everybody can participate. Even when it can be abused. Just- thank you Wikipedia for everything !
