The Advanced Wikipedian
From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki
- The Advanced Wikipedian doesn't read the Main Page.
- Instead he inhabits his own watchlist,
- He scours the Recent Changes.
- He knows today's featured article because it
- is flagged by an unusual amount of reverting.
- The Advanced Wikipedian senses the edits he can trust,
- A recognised user ID,
- a credible edit summary
- but an anon IP always merits some attention.
- The Advanced Wikipedian knows not to feed the trolls,
- looks for the hidden agenda in the latest voting,
- double checks an edit that just changes a date by one,
- and searches for independent, corroborating references.
- The Advanced Wikipedian spots battles he can't be bothered to fight
- and lets them pass like raindrops,
- knowing that controversies come and go
- but the Wiki remains.
