Wikipedia:Do not create hoaxes

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

A hoax is something in Wikipedia that is trying to make readers think it is correct when it is not. If you are interested in how quickly incorrect information is removed, a more useful thing to do is to try to find wrong things already in Wikipedia and correct them. If you find a page that you think is a hoax, list it at WP:RFD, only if it is so obvious, it can be quickly deleted by adding {{Qd-hoax}} to the page.
