I just looked up Repoblican primaries on Wikipedia, and it has RP dropping out on March 9th?

Isn't there a way to get that changed?

I tried to edit this (I've never done so before), but when the edit page comes up it has Ron Paul as a "Current Candidate" and I cannot find the "Withdrew" text to delete and replace with something else.

Anybody know what the problem is here?

It seems it is already corrected. (Or post a link and description where the 'typo' is.)

supposedly anyone can edit the pages on wikipedia. but the main person who started the page has final say and can change things anytime they want. Dunno just what i understand.,,,could be wrong.

Yes, anyone can edit the pages on Wikipedia, and it has turned out fine in most cases. But there are some controversial topics locked, and any editing is subject to discussion. Many more will change switfly back after they are defaced, or enhanced with incorrect or misleading information (that is of course a matter of opinion :) ). But such are the strange ways of open source.


No system is perfect. Wikipedia is at least comparable to any 'traditional' encyclopedia, and bigger.

The original author does not have ownership of the article; this is established in the rules pretty clearly.
