This module ended up being more challenging than I thought it would be. I had never made a wikipedia page before, so even just trying to figure out how to write it was something new for me. We wanted to learn about women on wikipedia and women contributors to wikipedia since women have been grossly underrepresented on wikipedia. We looked into the history of wikipedia, women on wikipedia, and then we tried to make our own page. Making our page was the most challenging aspect since it got tagged for speedy deletion, possibly because it was Emily and my’s first page. Bots scanning for new users got to ours pretty quickly and so there wasn’t much we could unless we had been editing wikipedia for months beforehand. All in all it was a good learning experience since I personally have not used wikipedia other than for quickly looking up information.
