      Hammy is too modest... a few years back he entertained at some length, as I recall, with his adventures in Wikidom.

      I fixed a bad track stat once and I'll be darned if whomever had put it up in the first place didn't change it back.

      I decided that if I ever really got into policing it for track facts it would be become a full-time job (or two) of its own.

        Why not an in-house T&F wiki without the random noise from drive by IP edits?

            I'm constantly updating the male high jumper's bios and stats.
            If you're ever walking down the beach and you see a girl dressed in a bikini made out of seashells, and you pick her up and hold her to your ear, you can hear her scream.

              When you say constantly, do you mean you have to keeping fixing them? Or are you changes stable?

                I've updated a few entries, when PR's are improved and records are broken. Sometimes, I include little-known facts about them. I think my entry was changed once, but it was dead wrong and so I reposted with a reference included. That seemed to shut the little non-T&F news poster up.

                  My favorite Wiki spoof is www.dickipedia.org .

                  Note: Too funny - when I entered www.dickipedia.com it redirected to Chickipedia.

                    Not track related but have had some experience with Wikipedia, which is monitored by people with their own agenda and prejudices. I had to hire an attorney to force the removal of entirely false, slanderous/libelous entries while they zealously edit and whitewash the entries for favored "celebrities"

                            Several times, Mostly about high jumpers and once about a friend who is an actor.

                              I did only once, when I spotted a glaring error in the article on Marian Woronin. It said there was controversy surrounding the timing of his 10.00, since his time was 9.992 and it should have been rounded to 9.99 :?
