Is my blog a credible source? Nitpicker posts gripe on Wikipedia
Wikipedia is a strange world. It’s a fantastic (albeit flawed) resource. But when you get into the weeds, you sense its high school drama queen vibe. Latest example is a little debate about some site called masterstrack.com. Andy Hecker, who heroically maintains the masters world records page, writes: “The validity of masterstrack.com is currently being questioned at [this page]. Andy says someone is questioning the credibility of very minor comments included in the April Jace article (which he wishes to wipe out). “masterstrack.com is accused of not being a credible source because it is a one-man blog,” he writes. “I’ve framed it as a news aggregation site focused on the subject of Masters Athletics.” If you’re comfortable with the Wikipedia moderation system and want to weigh in, be my guest. I’m just snickering from the sidelines.
