Wikipedia is not being written in an organized fashion. What does this mean?
- Wikipedia is incomplete. A lot of information you think would be on Wikipedia may be missing. But that does not mean it will not be added one day. And if you feel you can add it, go ahead!
- Many articles, project pages, categories, and templates may require cleanup
- Information may not be in the place where you think it would best belong
- Some information may be hard to find
- Some articles may be much more detailed than others of similar importance.
- Some articles may not be well categorized. Some categories that could exist may not exist. Some categories may be overloaded, and creation of subcategories may be useful.
- Many articles are orphaned
- Many articles or statements within articles may be unreferenced
