As much sense as it makes, and as much as it wouldn't surprise me to see it happen, don't take anything on Wiki as fact. There's a reason teachers and college professors don't accept Wikipedia as a legitimate citation on papers and projects. ;)

LoL :lol: I forgot about that! My professor and teachers are the same as well they won't accept a project or paper that a student used wikipedia as their resource.

Part of the problem that professors have with wikipedia is that it is constantly changing so if they were to try and check your citation there is a chance it will no longer be there. Also, the fact that it can be edited by anyone makes most of the content unreliable. Wikipedia is great source for quick information, but there are much better sources.

It has no citation meaning that there is no proof that that sentence is accurate.

 

The citations are at the bottom of the article. It isn't the worst source of information - it's just all second hand information. Most teachers like you to use primary sources.

I know the citations are at the bottom, but that particular sentence that said Nick-U was leaving said "Citation needed" which is what I was pointing out. And yeah, teachers prefer primary sources and occasionally secondary sources (review papers) over information taken from random places on the internet.
