I feel as though I might have learned more from wikipedia than I did in years and years of public school. To be fair, I have a sneaking suspicion that many of my teachers were drunk most of the time, but that's to be expected growing up in the midwest. But need information on the civil war for a term paper? Wikipedia. Need to know how to dispose of a body? Wikipedia.

That being said, it's also a website where anyone in the world can write anything they want about any subject.

Joke's on you, LoveHorses235. Wikipedia is all user create content, most of which was submitted by drunk public school teachers.

We used to have these things called Encyclopedias, where you could flip through and learn facts about the world. They were heavy, they took up a lot of room, and they needed updating far too often to commit to buying a set, but we still all had a set in our houses... even if it was missing book #10 Garrison - Halibut. Some people even paid payments to have these books.

Now we have wikipedia. It's easily edited by any rando on the internet and we all take it as the word of God...

I'm pretty sure you still can't cite it on a research paper for school, but maybe that has changed?

Whenever I am looking for information, the first thing I do is go on the Internet and look at Wikipedia to see if there is some information posted on it. The website gives
a lot of useful information on almost any topic in almost 52 languages. However, the content on Wikipedia is all user created and anyone can edit or add some information to any topic they like so I always have to be very careful in using this type of information as a reference in my research papers or assignments due to authenticity.

its a good site of source of knowledge but not sure that the content is all good not bad because the content is uploaded by public and changed by public.

Attempted to visit the website but unfortunately was not able to navigate to it with the error message stating that the "DNS address could not be found."

Something to look at and fix immediately.

One of the most well-known public broadcasting and news service companies in the world, the BBC has an understandably slightly cluttered site.

However, the top bar navigation works well and the news articles are front and center right on the home page.
