Is there anyone out there who is adept at editing Wikipedia?
I was just looking at the individual Wikipedia entries for ABBA's albums, and my eyes alighted on the 'Personnel' sections (particularly for ABBA, Arrival, The Album and Voulez-Vous, but maybe the others as well). I can only assume they were written by someone with a strong bias for Agnetha over Frida. Take a look. They need correcting.
Gary -- I do correct Wikipedia now and then. However, they have a Rule in which any claims must be 'Linked' to the source for those claims.
They refuse to accept the UKMIX Chart Site as a source, even though there are loads of Chart Experts there.
Instead, they allow Links to claims in Books etc. Even if those claims are laughable.
Joseph Murrells, (long deceased), brought out a 'Golden Discs' Book in 1978. In it he claimed that Baccara's 'Yes Sir I Can Boogie' had sold 18 Million Global copies in 1977! In fact, it had sold just over 3 Million in Europe, before it was released in the UK. Then it sold 700,000 in the UK. Plus about 1 Million to 1.5 Million outside the UK and Europe. So its Global Sales were about 4,700,000 to 5,200,000.No-where near 18 Million. But, Mr. Murrells said 18 Million in his 1978 Book, and Wikipedia will not listen to anyone else. (His Book was about Million Selling Singles and Albums anywhere in the World).
Wikipedia's 'World's Best Selling Singles' Page gives the Baccara Hit 18 Million Sales. Only 2 ABBA Singles are included. 'Fernando' - 10 Million. (It was more like 6 Million). Plus 'Waterloo' - 5 Million - even Joseph Murrells gives it more than that - 5.5 Million. 'Dancing Queen' is not Listed in Wikipedia's List. That is because Mr. Murrells only gives it 3 Million Sales in his Book. In fact, it had sold that before 1976 ended. It was still selling well into 1977. Including around 1.2 to 1.5 Million USA Sales. None of its 1977 Sales were counted by Mr. Murrells, which means Wikipedia ignores them too. Hence why Wikipedia has not Listed it on its World's Best Selling Singles page. It sold around 6.5 Million from 1976 to 1977. Wikipedia says 3 Million...
All of which are but 2 reasons why I rarely correct things on Wikipedia. They only change it back, a lot of the time. I feel that it is mainly run by ignorant people...
