Originally a parody of Uncyclopedia, Wikipedia has grown into the world's largest MMOAEG (Massively Multiplayer Online Article Editing Game,) boasting millions of subscribers and over two million individual realms or 'Articles' in which you can play.

The object of Wikipedia is to make as many edits as possible, as you quest through from the most simple low level articles on insects and bovines to vastly complex articles on the nature of the universe. The final challenge created by the moderators is an article on Wikipedia itself.

'Powerleveling' is a serious problem in Wikipedia, leading to many arguments over comma placement, spelling, and whether 42 really is the answer to life the universe and everything.

Countless lives have been ruined by Wikipedia; as players, or 'editors' as they call themselves, neglect their families and friends.

Of course wikipedia can benefit lives as well. Many uneducated teenagers see Wikipedia as 'leet hax' which they can use to circumvent study, where they are secretly being tricked into reading an encyclopedia. Contrary to unpopular belief, Wikipedia is technically an encyclopedia, although it it edited many millions of extra times.
Stupid Kid One: Dude, like check out my paper on the industrial revolution. I'll like get an A for sure. Pwnt.

Stupid Kid Two: LOL, moron, you put like this comma in the wrong place. I would know since I just copied my paper off of Wikipedia last week.

Stupid Kid One: OMG dude, like I did that too, but I just copied it last night! LOL, KRINKT!

Wife: Come to bed honey... I need your opinion on a new outfit I bought (;

Editor: Not now I've almost beat this article. Also you spelled ;) wrong.

A project to create the most accurate and complete free-content encyclopedia on the Internet. Written as a collaboration of users across the Internet. Basically, the UrbanDictionary.com version of an encyclopedia, without the witless comments.

The place where you go when the word you're looking for is too sophisticated to be found on UrbanDictionary.

The world's largest forum for anonymous arguments. Argue with everyone in the world on any topic imaginable. You may be Stephen Hawking, so-called "expert", but you need to reconcile your views on black holes with Bob from Idaho who thinks they are portals to Narnia and find some neutral point of view that you can both agree on.
I wanted to find a place to argue about Bruce Jenner's Wheaties boxes and found Wikipedia.

Internet-based free content encyclopedia that provides entries submitted by regular Internet users, thus covering topics and issues more often ignored by the scholarly print-based encyclopedias. Not everything can be submitted, and there are policies and guidelines that must be followed. Is a distant relative to urbandictionary.com in that they are both free content Internet databases.
Wikipedia has an extensive listing of every major Harry Potter character. Even Luna gets a good-sized entry.
