A bunch of people who come together and made a website for people who need help with answers.
Answer Since wikis are free content there is a possibility that they contain misleading, biased, or otherwise false information. Citing a wiki as a source for ac…ademic information is often frowned upon for this reason. Also since information on a page can be changed and reworded there is no guarantee that the information used will exist later for either your or another persons use. A wiki can however be a good place to start to find information for academic research. Most wikis including wikipedia push to have information cited at the bottom of the page. You can therefore find the information you need on a wiki and then find the original source. This allows you to not only verify the information given to make sure it came from someplace reliable but it also gives you a book or some other publication that contains more information on the subject you are researching. These resources can then be cited in academic papers unlike a wiki. However it is imperative that you actually find the copy of the source material and determine 1)That it is a reliable source such as a paper in a medical journal or a book from someone who is an authority on the subject, and 2) That the statement attributed to this work in this wiki is actually contained in this reliable source.
I tell students that it is a good place to start but you better find a back-up source A: Although WikiAnswers is fortunate enough to have professionals that may supervise …or simply contribute to the site along with individuals that may have acquired specific knowledge that enables them to accurately answer questions asked, it is open to anyone that wishes to participate. Therefor a wide array of people use and contribute to the site which allows for some mischief to exist such as changing the wording of answers of even making them misleading. Not too much is set in stone as the absolute final answer, thus making it the falable and jewel of a site that it is.

It's your choice if you do or not.
A "wiki" is a website that allows people who use the website to edit it (or specific portions, like the answers to questions such as this website allows). It allows users to c…ollaborate together to create content. "Wiki-wiki" is the Hawaiian for "quick." It has come to be associated with community crowd sourcing sites on the Internet that incorporate it into their names. Typically, a wiki site relies upon its members to create content and manage it. Information is posted by anyone, or by authorized members, but no one has ownership. On a site like WikiAnswers, this is the underlying philosophy. The information here is for the common good, and for common entertainment. It is open to all who accept the few rules and guidelines of the site. We are here together for each other. Self has no place. "WIKI" is also an acronym that means: What - I - Know - Is ?

There is no 'yes' or 'no' for this question, it depends on who answered the question. Is the answer sensible? Is it even near true? Does it answer your question? If it is then… you could believe it. A good idea is to research the answer and put into a sentence and see if it is true, if so the answer is. If it is about a particular thing/being that everyone knows about then it will be there (the answer). If it is about a extremely rare thing or something that lived way back or something, you may not be able to find info about it. So remember: Check, Find, Trust.
Yes, you can trust some articles in wiki-answers. You should always be careful though, some people purposely write wrong answers that seem right. But we have a lot of people m…oderating the site, so it should be trustworthy to a large degree.
Not exactly. Some people(for fun!) go to wiki and "improve" the answer. Most of the time though, people aren't improving it. They are just making it all wrong and fake. So tha…t is why I say you shouldn't always trust wiki.
Click the Start a wiki button on the top of any Wikia page (in the toolbar, next to the Wikia logo). Then, fill out the name, URL, and a few other things and your wiki will be… set up.

I wiki because I am a Wikianswers addict! I love answering questions, helping people out, making people laugh, and completing missions that are assigned to me as an SPA!
If the answer you received was helpful, or if you liked the answer you were given, then give them a trust point. Of course it's up to you, because you don't have to give a tru…st point.
No, for several reasons. People can lie. Someone else could be impersonating the individual in question. It can be difficult to judge emotions based purely on text-based co…mmunications.
You can get to almost any Wiki by simply searching for the particular Wiki using one of many Internet search engines. You might also use your browser and simply type the title… of the Wiki into the browser.
Wiki consists of all information that an individual user online can use for his or her own research. Wiki can also become a source to different discussions and topics internat…ionally that contains ideas from people online who shared their own insights on a certain topic or information.
