Editorial Fact vs. Fiction

Wikipedia has three different articles that are good, preferred and status. Each articles has specifics that shows how reliable each article can actually be. Wikipedia is an encyclopedia drawing forms of references, questionable text, definitions that anyone can manipulate at their own use. It opens because anybody can log in use the website  to change various entries. Wikipedia supposedly takes fact checking seriously but since it only has volunteers then its very different case. Wikipedia is reliable less than 1/3 of 1% are good, meaning the rest is false, lies, or not reliable as a credible source. You don’t need an email to sign up for a Wiki and some topics has a lock support where certain topics can be only edited by some or none at all unless you  have certain access. Though “Wiki” is becoming revolutionary one must remember that mistakes can and have been made when using wikipedia as a source for anything.
