Unsurprisingly, Wikipedia articles about high-profile topics often get a lot of traffic. In many cases, this means that if an article is vandalized or edited with incorrect information, those changes will be quickly spotted and reverted. In July 2020, the Wikimedia Foundation received messages about changes to the Spanish Wikipedia article on Korean Pop band BTS. We explained to the people who reached out that they could raise questions or concerns on the article’s talk page. Other readers also took to the talk page to point out the recent incorrect edits. Together, Spanish Wikipedia contributors discussed how best to correct the article, and they fixed it in short order. Editors working together to protect the projects and their content is precisely how the Wikimedia sites are supposed to function.
