Wikipedia Update

My post on wikipedia has now been up for over a week. It has not been altered or taken down. I posted a popular nickname for the New York Giants in the section about their uniforms and logos. A reason it may still be up is because it is in fact their most famous nickname so the writer possibly knew this and thought it fine to leave up. However, i did not cite it or leave a reference for the information which i thought would increase its chances of staying up. I did make an account though which may be another reason it has been up for an extended period of time. For looking over the others in class it seems to be a about 50/50 with the posts staying up. I can only venture guesses regarding why some stay and some do not. Maybe it is a very biased piece of media like many others in the field.
