Use your noodle: help Wikipedia out!

Friday, July 21, 2006
What better way to spend downtime than to help fill in much of the currently empty or lacking hockey articles on Wikipedia?

Forgive the plug. And yes, I know, Wikipedia isn't a "real" encyclopedia, and all other kinds of criticisms. But if there was ever a place where one could be able to help out in some capacity to archive much of what is going on in the world of hockey, Wiki would be it.

Honestly, whenever I am not wrapping my brain around functions, numeric symbols, or what Aristotle believed citizens should do and not do in my classes, I almost always have Wikipedia open and ready for editing to an article or two if I feel the desire to do so. I also created the currently used team infobox that you can see on all of the different teams for the National Hockey League (example here with the Montreal Canadiens), and am trying to think of a possibly better season-by-season record layout, along with other members of the WikiProject Ice Hockey group on Wiki.

I bring this up because I know there are plenty of people out there, bloggers and non-bloggers, who probably have a wealth of knowledge that they could put to great use. In fact, we're in the process of trying to turn the article on the Stanley Cup into something worthy of being a Featured Article, which does take quite a bit of time and effort. Not only that, but Wayne Gretzky was a Featured Article about a week ago, too.

So if anyone feels that they'd like to help out ... well, hey, go for it. It'd be even better if anyone would like to keep track of WikiProject Ice Hockey, and maybe throw in some input there as well. Just remember to register ... not that you have to, but it's always nice to have new members not behind Anonymous IPs.

    Great to see other people seeing that Wikipedia is...awesome. I am a frequent editor on all kinds of things on Wikipedia.
