Vague time span
Just a quick (admittedly frivolous) question..
Just wondering - is it possible to actually purchase a model of the logo such as is seen in this article? As Wikipedia's indisputable #1 fan, I would most certainly like one... RIGHT NOW!!! Incidentally... does Wikipedia actually have any kind of merchandise? I guess my initial estimation is that it's somewhat antithetical to the aims and general ethos of the project, but I don't know for sure. Forgive me, but like I said, question is frivolous! Jeez! Take a chill pill! You Wikipedians can be so cantankerous sometimes... hehe. Peace. Psychonavigation (talk) 10:35, 10 November 2012 (UTC)
"59% of the editors are aged 17 to 40, more specifically, 14% of the editors are in the group 18–21, 13% are 22–29, and 19% are 30–39. 28% editors are aged 40+, whereas 13% are aged 17 and under." Those percentages do not add up in any way. Andreas JN466 03:00, 6 January 2013 (UTC)

Ironic Statement is Ironic
"The significant and stable under-representation of women results in persistently unbalanced coverage (e.g. articles related to football are much more developed than articles related to motherhood) in Wikipedia." I'm a woman. At one point, I contributed to articles about Arsenal FC. I have a kid. I have never written on motherhood.
Wikipedians are volunteers
Wikipedians are volunteers - yet it never says that on the page. In fact, Wikipedians are the largest body of online volunteers, making this the largest example of Virtual volunteering - but there's no reference here on the page to that. I think there needs to be something on the page that says these people volunteer their time, or, explicitly, that they are volunteers, and I think there should be a see also section on the page that links to the related topics of Virtual volunteering, crowdsourcing and swarm intelligence, to show that this is part of a larger family of online volunteer action. There should also be a link somewhere on the page to Wikipedia:Wikipedian_of_the_year.
