Wikipedia Bias[edit]

Wikipedia is very biased. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Theodore E (talkcontribs) 09:28, 22 March 2019 (UTC)

In what way? I would also be intrigued to find out how the 72,000 contributors from most countries in the world work in concert to maintain that bias. HiLo48 (talk) 09:43, 22 March 2019 (UTC)
Notably, WP is biased in favor of WP. We should get a non-WP editor to write this article. Thanks ‡ Єl Cid of ᐺalencia ᐐT₳LKᐬ 17:18, 25 April 2019 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 4 April 2019[edit]

Wikipedia is not working please make it work please fix it now thank you 2601:240:E480:6F66:906D:6862:18A7:A29E (talk) 01:51, 4 April 2019 (UTC)

Not done. Hey there, sorry but this is not the place for this; this talk page should only be used to talk about the page Wikipedia. If you have a specific question about something on Wikipedia, feel free to ask at the Teahouse; but please be more specific as to what exactly isn't working. We'd be happy to try to help you out with any problems you may have. Best, --SkyGazer 512 My talk page 01:55, 4 April 2019 (UTC)


Why is Wikipedia on Wikipedia? If you're on it you know what it is. ThePRoGaMErGD (talk) 20:49, 23 April 2019 (UTC)

Hey ThePRoGaMErGD; it's true that most readers probably know the basics of what Wikipedia is, but this page has a lot more information than most readers would know; e.g. its history, cultural impact, etc. :-) Because of how much coverage Wikipedia has received in reliable sources, it easily meets the notability criteria for web content, and most of the time is treated like any other page. As stated in the header of this talk page, "The question of whether Wikipedia should have an article on itself has been raised many times before, and the answer is definitely yes." I hope this helps!--SkyGazer 512 My talk page 21:15, 23 April 2019 (UTC)

Page views[edit]

Does anyone have any idea why this article has had a significant uptick in page views yesterday? Just curious. — RAVENPVFF · talk · 12:12, 7 May 2019 (UTC)
