Wikipedia is the most popular internet encyclopedia and just like any other wiki, anyone can do some editing. There are more than three million articles written in the English language making it the largest wiki worldwide. Most people visit the site whenever they wish to know about a certain subject. It is also used for researching where one is writing about a certain topic and wishes to get additional information. The information available at Wikipedia is mostly work previously done by other people who later upload it for other people to view. Those passionate about writing also have a chance to express their love for writing by writing about something mostly of their interest. This is what is referred as Wikipedia writing which will be discussed in this article. Please note that if any of this is too confusing, you can always hire Wikipedia writers to help you with the struggle.
Creating a Wikipedia page is a process that requires the writer to follow. The first step is to do a search to confirm whether there is another title under the same subject exists. The results will show whether there is a related article to ones subject. The red colored link is an indication that the title is not in existence while the blue link indicates existence of such title. By clicking the red link, a blank page appears and the save page button should be clicked to create the page.
Apart from encyclopedia articles, all other articles must include a namespace prefix followed by the title. Media files have an exception when it comes to creating a page in that they are uploaded through a separate and dedicated interface accessed through the ‘upload file’ click.
There are another category of namespaces that can only be created by either the administrators or other users whose access levels are higher. They include mediawiki pages, education program pages, special pages and module pages.
If one wishes to change or edit an existing page or a section of it and the title as shown in the uniform resource locator (URL) of the browser’s address to a new title, one should click edit and then do the changes before clicking the enter button. The new title will appear as if it was the one originally put.
A Wikipedia spam is that unwanted advertisement link in a site. The problem is that they appear as full uniform resource locators replacing the legitimate and original content of a page with the hope that their pages will be viewed by those who visit the site. One can remove a spam by overwriting it with the original older version.
