This page about wikipedias faults points to some concrete places to
help improve the quality of wikiepedia.
of course you have to take it all with a grain of salt,

I am just reviewing the wikia links right now.

For example, who added a link to wiki
http://water.wikia.com/wiki/Oil_sands is linked from How to Boil a
Frog ?
It is a link that is not obvious as how to value is added to wikipedia.

That page on wikia has some reference to an article from Woynillowicz
but does not justify the link, doe it?
