8 June 2006 - 13:56My First Wikipedia Edit

I have been using Wikipedia for years and have always wanted to contribute – and I never knew how easy it could be. Having noticed that the Wikipedia entry for Star Trek mentioned:

A common and fondly-held superstition among fans is that the even-numbered Star Trek films are superior to the odd-numbered Star Trek films

and knowing that John had proven this ‘rule’ using IMDB data, I figured Wikipedia needed an update.

I made the entry a week back and it still stands, so I guess it is accepted. Woot! The paragraph now reads:

A common and fondly-held superstition among fans is that the even-numbered Star Trek films are superior to the odd-numbered Star Trek films. A statistical test based on IMDB data lends credence to this conclusion [1].

Ok, so the edit is minor, but it only took 5 minutes…I shall get more involved now – it is so easy!
