Perhaps this is off-topic, but I wanted to say it for a long time. The 
more time passes, the more I wonder if people who work on Wikipedia have 
ever seen an encyclopedia. On Wikipedia, dictionary definitions and 
image galleries are forbidden, and stubs are frowned upon. Yet every 
encyclopedia I have ever seen has dictionary definitions, and image 
galleries, and stubs-a-plenty.

I guess that conclusion is that we are doing something wrong.
