Wikipedia advice

#1 Post by Marky » Sat Jan 12, 2019 12:56 pm

Saw a recent job listing on here where the hire would be in charge of updating a Wikipedia page.

I am a sports talk show host at a station who's Wikipedia page has been sabotaged. We believe it was changed awhile back by a disgruntled former employee to say that the station is off the air.

Actually, we're alive and well!

Anyway, every time I change the Wikipedia page, it is changed back. I've actually been suspended by Wikipedia for changing the page to what it should be.

Who on here knows Wikipedia? Are there things like Wikipedia experts I can turn to?

The page in question is linked below. You can see the personal shot toward's the station owner included.

Personally, I wouldn't mind killing this page and instead making a "1420 WEMB Sports Radio" page in it's place.

Thoughts, advice, and help would be welcomed.

Great question and an interesting dilemma. I wish I had a suggestion for you.
