Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not/Outtakes

This page contains material which is considered humorous. It may also contain advice.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

What Wikipedia is not – Outtakes is a composition that explores the Wikipedia official policy What Wikipedia is not. As noted in that policy, "Wikipedia is an online encyclopedia and, as a means to that end, an online community of individuals interested in building a high-quality encyclopedia in a spirit of mutual respect. Therefore, there are certain things that Wikipedia is not." For example, Wikipedia content is not a paper encyclopedia, a dictionary, a blog or webspace provider, or a crystal ball and the Wikipedia community is not a democracy, bureaucracy, battleground, or an anarchy. Importantly, Wikipedia is not censored. However, since What Wikipedia is not was first developed beginning at least as early as September 24, 2001, a number of proposed additions never made it in. This essay looks at portions of the policy that were removed in the editing process and not included in the work's final, publicly released version. In addition, it looks at portions of the policy that may have been removed had they been added in the editing process, but nonetheless have relevance to the policy. In effect, What Wikipedia is not – Outtakes may provide a perspective to the What Wikipedia is not official policy to provide the reader a better understanding of what Wikipedia is not.

Note: Some really bad jokes are now at Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not/BJAODN.

Wikipedia is not a cabal[edit]

Wikipedia is only run by a cabal. Of thousands. But don't worry – you, too, can join the cabal by making a history of constructive, high-quality edits. That, and learn the secret password. (It's "Swordfish.")

There Is No Cabal (TINC). We discussed this at the last Cabal meeting, and everyone agreed that There Is No Cabal. An announcement was made in Cabalist: The Official Newsletter of The Cabal making it clear that There Is No Cabal. The words "There Is No Cabal" are in ten-foot letters on the side of the 42-story International Cabal Headquarters, and an announcement that There Is No Cabal is shown at the start of every program on The Cabal Network. If that doesn't convince people that There Is No Cabal, I don't know what will. --Guy Macon (talk) 09:53, 18 March 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Wikipedia is not a game[edit]

Do you think this is some kind of game? (WP:MMORPG notwithstanding.)

Wikipedia is not the Bible[edit]

Don't put Bible copypasta here. As stated in the gospel according to Saint Jimbo 4:20, God has commanded it.

Wikipedia is not a kitten[edit]

Though sometimes cute and cuddly, Wikipedia is not a kitten. Please do not stroke it lovingly.

Wikipedia is not a lightbulb[edit]

It is worth noting that if an engineer builds a better lightbulb, this engineering will have no noticeable impact on Wikipedia policies, guidelines or consensus.[5]

Wikipedia is not a mobile phone company[edit]

So it won't send you either a £500,000 phone bill[6] or send you a 300-page bill.

I'm complaining about your claim that you have elephants in your back yard, that elephants live in Antarctica, and that they are overpopulating the world. Article discussion pages are to be used for improving the quality of the article and this is noted at the top of that particular article. Unconstructive edits are considered vandalism. --Yamla 19:38, 19 September 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Wikipedia is not a guttermouth convention[edit]

So please refrain from using profanity. Or else I'm bringing the mammoths back from extinction and let them take over the Illuminati so you'll never explode on us again like a pig wearing a torpedo on his macaroni and T-shirts again that have the letter = on it. And don't climb the angry mastodons dressed as a ton of bricks! And if you find yourself digging deeper Kool-aids, stop being a jerk!

Wikipedia is not a song parody[edit]

Hey I just met you – and this is crazy – but I hate swearing – so stop it maybe

Wikipedia is not a place for whatever vandalism or disruption is happening above[edit]

So please don't do what whoever is doing that nonsense above Wikipedia articles. That's just stupid.

Wikipedia is not a place to create secret hidden messages[edit]

By embedding them in blocks of otherwise innocuous text. Did I just give something away?

Wikipedia is not a place to dump large quantities of material copied from "My Documents"[edit]

Except for here:

The book Animal Farm is, clearly, a fictional story. However, this allegory's connection to the early days of Communist Russia is all too true. The leading pigs of the Farm take control, not only of the establishment, but also of the residents. They are able to mislead the all-too-ignorant populace into thinking whatever they do is a good thing for all. The crookedness of Animal Farm's government is shown from the very start, and comes through to the end, culminating in a slogan that was all too true when the real-life correlation to this story happened not so long ago.
The first flavor I would like to see is sweet onion. I like raw onions and I know that other people do too. In addition, the onion jelly bean would mix well with some of your existing jelly bean flavors. Another flavor that I thought would be exciting and popular is the egg flavored jelly bean. Many people I know eat eggs at all times of the day and so I think it would be a popular choice. Last, but not least, is the broccoli jelly bean. I understand that broccoli jelly beans might not sound very popular at first, but you could make them be a healthy snack to eat. If they were healthy, parents could get their kids to eat broccoli in a rather sweet way.
In the dining room, many pesky monsters roam, namely Werewolves and Headless Specters. However, they are no match for the mighty football helmet! Some of the collapsing floor tiles have snack boxes hidden directly under them. Jump quickly and take the risk of falling to grab these delicious packets of tastiness. Sometimes, the menacing lit fireplace may breathe fire, guarding a snack box. Time your jump carefully and snag it without being roasted. If you head-smash some webs against the wall, it will take you into a closet with some snacks and sandwiches in it. Although you might always have a full five dog-tags in health, it is a helpful oasis. (It's also fun to stand in the right place and get the view from the inside of a rotating sandwich!)

Wikipedia is not a place to find The Truth[edit]

The Truth is out there ... wait, sorry, I mean out there. Really. I mean it. Turn off the computer and go outside now. You have had enough for one day.

Wikipedia is not a place to leave out punctuation[edit]

It gets really confusing if you leave out punctuation marks, please use them it makes long sentences easier to read and makes it clear exactly what you are on about

Wikipedia is not a place to post half-finished sentences[edit]

Half-finished articles and Candlejack are fine, but please finish your sentences!

Poor thing – only did it for the lulz.

Wikipedia is not a place to invent new spelling and grammar[edit]

It hinders communication if we don't use the same spelling or grammar. Yes, you can decide to use non-standard fleemishes and the reader can still gloork the meaning from the context, but there ix a limit; If too many ot the vleeps are changed, it becomes harder and qixer to fllf what the wethcz is blorping, and evenually izs is bkb longer possible to ghilred frok at wifx.

Wikipedia is not a place to sabotage articles with personal info[edit]

Wkipedia is not the place to explain that Jim Hersha is a 12th grader in Arkansas who loves chocolate and bums.

Wikipedia is not a site opposing random and trivial fictional stuff[edit]

On the contrary. Wikibooks and Fandom were created for a reason.

So don't expect to find any leftovers for the next batch of laundry (ba-dum-psssh).

And don't expect to have an audience for your jokes =)

Wikipedia is not a text adventure[edit]

Granted, we have edit counts for levels (but not to the extent of Everything 2); edit distribution and other stats; administrators, arbitrators, vandals, and so on for classes; sockpuppets for using "summons" on a hacked character; over 1.3 million players; over 1,130,000 locations (including 900+ Featured towns and cities), pubs (talk pages); quest rewards (barnstars); boss battles (FAC); class change trials (RFA), and battle arenas (AIV).

Wikipedia is notable, but do not feel special for editing a notable website[edit]

you are not special even if you are making changes to a notable website

Wikipedia is not for spreading false information[edit]

since wikipedia is an encyclopedia, people are able to spread false information quickly, and then the new generation of wikipedians would befome stupid and not be able to see the truth about it all, this is why vandalism isnt allowed

Wikipedia is not communism[edit]

Despite the assertions of many a vandal, Wikipedia is not, in fact, communism. Jimbo Wales is not really Che Guevara, Emma Goldman, or Stalin; Larry Sanger is not Trotsky; and Wikipedia was not founded in a bloody and violent armed revolution against Encyclopædia Brittanica imperialism. Furthermore, no matter what anyone will tell you, Wikipedia is not owned in common by the workers. Wikipedia belongs to the world. From each according to their convenience and addiction, to each according to their bandwidth (as long as the site is still up).

In fact, Wikipedia is the opposite of communism. Communism succeeds in theory but fails in practice[original research?][citation needed][dubious ][season and episode needed]; Wikipedia fails in theory but succeeds in practice[original research?][citation needed][dubious ][season and episode needed].

Actually no, Wikipedia is communism. Sorry.[original research?][citation needed][dubious ]

Wikipedia is not GoDaddy[edit]

In an expansion of the idea "Wikipedia is not a webspace provider" ...

  • It should not be used as a personal website or a personal blog, not even as a blog of your recent projects on Wikipedia.
  • It cannot register your domain names for 99¢ for the first year.
  • It is not-for-profit, so it does not require commercials where famous women like Stacy Keibler and Danica Patrick tease baring their breasts or beavers. (Though it would probably help come donation drive time.)
  • It does not provide a wide array of automatically-installed web applications.

Therefore, Wikipedia is not GoDaddy.

Wikipedia is not a place for Roblox games[edit]

Wikipedia is not an AI[edit]

Wikipedia is not an AI (artificial intelligence) because it is a collaborative online encyclopedia that allows users to create and edit articles. Although Wikipedia uses some AI techniques to assist with tasks such as spam filtering and article categorization, it is primarily a human-driven platform.

While Wikipedia may use some automated processes to detect and revert vandalism or to suggest potential changes to articles, these processes are not sophisticated enough to qualify as AI. Rather, they are based on rules and algorithms that are designed to support the community of human editors who contribute to the site.

In contrast, AI refers to systems that are capable of learning from data and making decisions or predictions based on that learning. These systems are typically designed to perform specific tasks or solve specific problems, and they use a range of techniques such as machine learning, natural language processing, and computer vision to achieve their goals.

In summary, while Wikipedia may use some AI techniques to assist with certain tasks, it is primarily a human-driven platform and does not qualify as an AI.
