We invite you to Wikipedia (the name is formed from the words wiki and encyclopedia), a free encyclopedia that anyone can edit. The last three words are actually the motto (slogan) of Wikipedia and can be seen in the upper left corner of the main page.
Since its inception in 2001, Wikipedia has grown rapidly into one of the largest sites on the Internet. Wikipedia content is free, written by people from all over the world. Sediment is based on wiki technology - this means that anyone with an Internet connection can edit, edit, refine information throughout the encyclopedia (with a few exceptions, such as protected articles or the home page), simply by clicking on the edit link , which is at the top of every Wikipedia article. You can edit this article by clicking the link (bookmark) above or "edit".
Edit articles on Wikipedia and its affiliates, be proud of your contribution, and add knowledge that you think is necessary (possible) and that will facilitate collaboration. Forward!
In each article, links will lead you to related articles, often with additional information. Add further information, cross-references, citations as permitted by Wikipedia standards and policies. Don't be afraid to accidentally harm Wikipedia when you add or improve information, as Wikipedians are always there to advise or correct obvious mistakes when needed. And Wikipedia's software, known as MediaWiki, is carefully designed to make it as easy as possible to fix editing errors.
Because Wikipedia is a promising project that anyone can participate in, it is very different from paper sources. In particular, older articles tend to be more comprehensive and balanced, while at the same time they may contain significant misinformation, non-encyclopedic content or vandalism. The user should be aware of how to obtain adequate information, thus avoiding misinformation that has recently been added and has not yet been removed (see Help: Search). However, unlike the paper encyclopedia, Wikipedia is completely up-to-date, which means that major changes, changes to the most high-profile events, can be made.
