So apparently my latest assignment for one of my college courses is to actually change/edit a wikipedia article.

So yeah. As interesting as this assignment sounds, I have absolutely no idea where to go with this. So I figured I'd come to you guys for suggestions on what I can do.

It doesn't have to be much, though I do have to do a little more than just correct the occasional spelling error or change one sentence. No I actually have to contribute something.

Basically the two things that our instructor said we could do (that would get us full credit) are:
1.) Add to an existing article/correct the information if we know its wrong.
2.) Create our own page and fill it in with information we know to be correct.

So yeah, basically we can't do things like say... change the article on The Sun to "A HUGE BALL OF FIRE!!!" and expect to get full credit.

So yeah, do you guys have any suggestions for what kinds of wiki articles I can change, or anything you might know of that's wrong so I can fix it? As limitless as this assignment sounds I still have no idea what to do with it.

So yeah, what are your thoughts?

tldr;
Assignment for class is to change an article on wikipedia. Have no idea what to do. Need suggestions. Thank you
VERY METAL!

I'd be so fucked if I got an assignment like that, as I'm IP banned from editing pages.

Just go to random pages and then look at the discussion for that particular page. Take cues from the respected Wiki members and then take the credit for their suggestions.

Do you specialise in something? Is there someone you know an awful lot about? Are there any local celebrities you could write about, regardless of whether they deserve a page?

That, or just vandalise the page on chickens. Dudes already know about chickens.
Hahahahahahahahahah hahahaha har har har

Proxy sites usually make everything so slow though. Or at least they used to.

There you go, TS. Screw up a bunch of pages from the school's computer lab until you get an IP ban. Problem, Professor?

Quote by UG's Pit Section on Wikipedia
The Pit is the most popular and most active section of the Ultimate-Guitar.com forums.It is the part of the site where the registered UGers (minus adbots) can discuss multiple topics, including those that do not necessarily have to do with guitar or even music. Many political, religious and topical issues are debated here.

Although The Pit is a miscellaneous section, certain standards are upheld. Account suspensions, bans, and closed threads are quite common as is being sent to count tree in Siberia for Mother Land.

I bold the edits. There. Work done.
To be vulnerable is needed most of all, if you intend to truly fall apart.

I actually looked that up.
The actual page is different, but the reviews described are hilarious.

Actually, education centers don't get IP banned.

At least my school does not.

Idk I only use an proxy site to go on Piratebay which (to my knowledge) is the only site blocked on campus

Ask an admin for info on UG Plus, ask if you can update the wiki page with that info, then do it.

Nah not really, they need out IP addresses to figure out a lot of things.

Like say for example, who has multiple accounts.

For more examples of such things. Check out Carmel's blog
