Important Wikipedia pages
Wikipedia:Visitor administrators do not need any superlatives to participate in Wikipedia, so many contributors, of all ages and cultural backgrounds, edit on it. Anyone can - except in rare cases - edit pages, and can click the "edit" link at the top of all pages, except for some private protected pages. Anyone's contribution with references to reliable sources on Wikipedia is welcome in accordance with some policies and guidelines, but texts without any source are subject to deletion.
Wikipedia's strength lies in its content management system, called MediaWiki, where there is no need to worry about adding or improving information. Several contributors to Wikipedia are willing to provide help, advice and correction about contributions.
