"The Wiki Writer's Miracle" — The following refers to the bizarre paradox wherein eighty percent of the student body cannot write a clear and grammatically correct paper for their class; however, ninety percent of the student body manages to write in pristine English when editing daviswiki.org pages.

This "bizarre paradox" is partially due to the Wiki's editing capabilities—if you inadvertently make an error, there's a good chance that someone else will fix your mistake! But don't fall prey to the "wiki writers myth," — wherein people assume the wiki is magical, when in actuality there are people behind it and for ideas to succeed they need to be interesting or rewarding.

I suspect this might be due to the fact that the various and sundry authors of this Wiki do not make up a representative cross-section of the student body as a whole. — BarnabasTruman
