    Has anyone else noticed some strange things on the transformers reference on wikipedia? I just looked just now and someone has changed the intro blurb to read : [​IMG]


    All the references have also been messed with so none are displaying

    Apparently it's already been corrected. *shrugs* Stupid people do stupid things sometimes. Thank goodness for nerdy Wiki buffs and backup files.

    Yeah, pretty much all publicly-editable wiki and especially the Wikipedia are susceptible to vandalism. Sometimes in the weirdest places, like articles on toasted cheese sandwiches.

    No, it's right - it's the 3rd of June, not the 6th of March. Walruslaw's just in the UK, where we arrange the date from smallest increment to largest, day/month/year.

    You know, sensibly.

    Well, if you put a lot of work into something, free of charge, for the benefit of informing others, you'd hope readers would not vandalise your work just because they could.

    Yeah, those silly yanks :p

    Haha, okay, I admit I fell into that one like an idiot. It doesn't help that the datelines also mess with my head. I guess I'm too used to the month/day/year formula.

    I laugh everytime the same person edits the ROTF page for voice actors, saying a bunch of 4Kids VAs and Anthony Anderson are voicing characters.
