Unlike its predecessor and unfriendlier Wikipedia, it's the WORLDS LARGEST COLLABORATIVE HOW-TO MANUAL that anyone can edit. Many people come together as a global community of volunteers to help contribute daily. Any patrolling/editing/new article boosting you do speaks volumes to the community.
Example 1: "Oh dude, some nasty language in that edit, I'm gonna roll back changes to the last good edit."
Example 2: "I see a ton of spelling/grammar/punctuation/sentence structure mistakes in this article, im going to go ahead and press the edit button on this article now to enlighten them, then perhaps it will even have the chance at becoming a featured article! Horray!"
Example 3: "Did you see my wikiHow about How to be a Goth?" "No, but you should read my article on How to be Preppy instead."
A site ware majority of the people have minor basic knowledge on things and create unhelpful pages that were already obvious and it was probably made by a 12 year old.

A website that has a lot of how-to articles written and edited by HTML noobs. Whenever you make a how-to article somebody will edit it and make your article you took a lot of time to write dumb so you edit it back to what you wrote but then they edit it again. A lot of times they have bad grammer and write stupid stuff in your article so all you want to do is grab them by the neck and bash their head into every object in the room you're in and kill them.
