Heard someone say today that professors can go into wiki and change answers to try and catch their students copying stuff. Seems a little far fetched to me. Anyone else ever heard this or know about this?
The Future Is Bright! Hotty Toddy
If its obviously false then it would get edited back pretty quickly. I'm a Wikipedia editor myself and people are passionate about making it as accurate as possible. It could happen but it wouldn't be up there for long.

Yes its true. My American History prof did it this semester.
If you put something wrong on wikipedia it is fixed in under 10 seconds on average. It was a shady source five years ago. It's arguably one of the best things in human history at this point.
Very interesting! How do you know when an answer needs editing? Is there some type of message that lets you know when someone tampers with an answer or are there people watching the site?
Big Brother is always watching
I edit a wide variety of things but I put alerts on pages I care about such as college football pages, FSU stuff, etc. if someone edits any of the pages I have tagged it lets me know and I look and see what someone did. If someone were to edit things to be funny or put a bias or something I could change it back so it's correct. There's people across the site that are passionate about different things and make sure it's as accurate as possible. Definitely some inaccuracies but it gets better all the time.
college is beyond gay
these queefer professors seriously have nothing better to do?
yes, apparently you don't know what a 'wiki' is.
edit: wikipedia DOES have staff that confirms correctness of things 'posted' and keeps it in check for the most part.. but like I said, look up the definition of a wiki. Surprised anyone with a college education doesn't have hands on experience with wikis.

This explains a lot.
Thank you captain obvious....
Found this. Ironically one of these answers came from wiki-answers.
