Wikipedia (English: Wikipedia, wiki+(encyclo)pedia) is an open, multilingual encyclopedia. The project is managed by the Wikimedia Foundation. The name Wikipedia is a mixture of the words wiki (technology for creating collaborative websites), and encyclopedia (encyclopedia). Jimmy Wales and Larry Sanger started Wikipedia in January 2001. The English Wikipedia has a lot of powerful information.
Word Cunningham invented wiki programming in 1994 and described it in 2006 as an idea that I imagine no one would have to pay to buy it.
Wikipedia is a store of information on which they say encyclopedic writing: The encyclopedia that anyone can edit is accurate, complete, varied, open, impartial, and free for all people. Anyone can contribute to editing it. This information is for people like you and your clothes, put it down, write it, and leave it there. For those who want to see it and use it, write an extra word, fix a mistake in the word. The most correct written sentence is not correct. Write a completely new article. The most important thing is that you are afraid that you will make a mistake. In Wikipedia, there is no need to fix it if it is damaged. If you do not know how to write in an encyclopedic way, try translating from the English version or formatting one of the articles that need formatting. The problem is not what people can do, the problem is that no one knows that they can help and that they can write and adjust.
Wikipedia's conflict of interest policy does not encourage you to write articles about yourself, your friends, your books, your discoveries or your poetic creations because these articles can be biased. Wikipedia uses XA licenses, including Creative Commons.
