I Love Wikipedia

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 576 People

    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...

    Wikipedia, I Would Marry You.

    If it was a person that is. I use Wikipedia for practically everything but what I like the most is when you're researching a person. I like it when you're doing that because it shows a picture, and some information about them along with their article. I have a Wikipedia app on...

    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.

    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 It certainly comes in handy although I did notice previously that some of the article were out of date.

    The Chain Reaction

    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...

    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...

    Love It!

    When I got Internet Explorer 8, they let me put wikipedia as an option for my search bar, so no matter where I am, I can just type in my search box and directly search Wikipedia...it's a beautiful thing.

    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...

    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. ^.^

    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...

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

    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 !

    Wikipedia Is The Best

    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

    Wikipedia owns. Its not as cool as tuppaware, but still pretty cool. I strongly recommend you get stoned as you possible can then get on the wikipedia website and research teodora indepth whilst listening to heavy metal in the background.
