There's actually a really simple reason for this behaviour, and a reason why all this "fix it yourself" just doesn't work.People who search wiki's generally search them because they don't know the answer. If they don't know the answer, they can't of course fix it.In theory, later on, once they find the answer, they could go back and update wow-wiki, but generally you've moved on by that point and it's not your first thought. If this happens often enough you just stop trusting wowwiki for that sort of information and it moves into your mind as "it'd be great if it were up to date".While everyone can edit and update a wiki, they are, like all sources of knowledge, really intended to be updated by subject matter experts. The people who really ought to be updating things like wowwiki are people like the guys from elitistjerks, or tankspot or the like because they are(excluding Blizzard) the subject matter experts. I can go and update some of the stuff that's there that I know is out of date, but my information may or may not be 100% correct because I don't spend enough time theorycrafting to be sure of my answers.
