Wikipedia Outsource Project


The Dallas County population was incorrect on http://www.wikipedia.org.  I made the correction from 2.3 million to 2,412,837 according to the United States Census 2008 report.  I accidently made Dallas the city’s population to 2.4 million, when actually the county is that large.  I did not add any other information to the page, the number has remained the same for over a day now.

Wiki pages have constant supervision by administrators and users.  Within an hour, the post on the City of Dallas Wikipedia page was corrected to 1.4 million people.  The immediate response to my error proves that people are aware and watching everyone else’s edits.  This system works, for now.
