Hey guys and gals I was just looking at the wikipedia page here--> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bleeping_Computer And was wondering if anyone would help me with it? It is in need of more information and some external linking. I added a few things and it seems the one who started it hasn't been there in a while. :thumbsup: Please help. :flowers:

The paragraph

Members, Volunteers and Staff
The Great volunteers on Bleeping computer are the best they are very controlled and the great staff they are always keeping an eye out for misplaced posts, spam and unruly members so that the site stays clean.

It is not as well worded and formal as the rest of the wiki content. It is also stating a general characteristic found in all forums it is not really specific to Bleeping Computer

I have added some edits.

It really needs to be re-written.

I think that whole line needs to go actually, Eyesee.. as it is so subject to change.

I love doing technical writing.
I agree with Jgweed that the ehtire thing needs to be rewritten.
Parts are redundant and it does not read well.
Maybe we can all work together to rewrite the entire thing, taking one section at a time.
I would be glad to help
