About WikiPedia

WikiPedia is a huge collection of knowledge that anyone can contribute to. Most articles are accurate but not all can be trusted. You should always check information with other sources (the good thing is that links to other sites are at the bottom of most Wikipedia pages). Wikipedia is very good at organizing information.
