All the material on the website is courtesy of donors from all around the world, and if you want to create some pages for Wikipedia and contribute, it can be done quite easily.

    If the article you want to write does not exist, you will get an option from Wikipedia, offering you to create a page.

Can the article be verified through different sources?

    If you cannot answer these questions, you’d be better off not writing the article because Wikipedia admin summarily deletes those articles that are not worth reading and cannot be checked for references.
