Extra step: Peer review

Top level editors roundtable your page.

Every edit Reputation X proposes is vetted in advance by experienced and impartial third-party Wikipedia editors. They make recommendations and even counsel not to make certain edits that may not be accepted by the wider Wikipedia community. It can seem like a brutal process, but the outcome is always better.

The Wikipedia editing process

01 Research

We research past edits and editors, references, page history, and more.

02 Reference development

Step two involves vetting references for quality. We want to ensure future edits are nearly irrefutable.

03 Approvals

We collaborate with the client on the initial draft of the proposed edits to the Wikipedia page.

04 Peer review

A small group of high-level Wikipedia editors analyze the prospective article. They provide edits and recommendations needed for a successful outcome. Changes are often made.

05 Edits

The edits we direct are careful, organic, and made in a way that works with the editing environment, while minding the quirks of those who may be watching the page.

06 Monitor & improve

The page is monitored, new edits are introduced over time, and the page continuously improves.

Why use Reputation X for Wikipedia?

Anyone can edit or create a Wikipedia page. Articles online make it seem easy, but it isn't. We've been helping noteworthy individuals edit Wikipedia for over a decade.  

  • Our campaigns focus on quality work
  • We research existing and new references for accuracy
  • We're sticklers for notability and can improve if it is lacking
  • Content is quality-reviewed by editors before publication
  • We don't make edits unless they are defensible
  • Our edits make Wikipedia better

Experienced Wikipedia editors

Many Wikipedia editors we work with perform the edits free of charge. They want to make Wikipedia better. 

Wikipedia editors have a sort of pecking order. Editors who have made many edits that have been accepted are the best kind. These are editors with verified accounts rather than anonymous IP addresses. They have not been flagged often (or at all) by other users. They are sincerely interested in improving Wikipedia.

Every Wikipedia editor we work with is only asked to make edits they'd feel comfortable disclosing - whether they choose to or not.  

Subject matter expertise

When repairing a Wikipedia article it's important to show knowledge of the subject. Why? Because editors check to see if edits were made by a qualified expert. How do they know? They look at the author's edit history.

We edit at the right pace

Make an edit too fast and it will be rolled back. Every article has its own pace, and that pace is seen in the edit history. Similar pages can also shed light on the right pace. No matter how beneficial the changes are, if they're rushed it can result in disaster. 

We've found that a slow, steady approach works best. We keep in mind that the Wikipedia article needs to improve for everyone - not just the client. 

Monitoring articles for changes

We watch Wikipedia pages for changes. When a significant change has been made, we alert the client. Without monitoring, it’s almost impossible to detect negative or unwanted content.

Why our edits "stick"

  • Reputation X doesn't use in-house Wikipedia editors. Doing so would reduce our effectiveness. 
  • We work with subject-matter experts to build or improve a Wikipedia page. 
  • We only perform work that improves Wikipedia. 
  • We only publish when notability guidelines have been met.

Once proper references and notability are established, we ask members of the Wikipedia community to review them. If various experienced editors don't believe a page is worthy of inclusion or the requested edits don't pass muster, we don't build or edit the page.

Questions about Wikipedia editing

Yes, you can edit your own Wikipedia page, but it is strongly recommended you don't. With digital fingerprinting techniques, sock puppet investigations, and other means, it is common for people to get caught. Even the FBI got caught. When an individual gets caught editing their own page, they are often banned, their IP address banned, and the page gets a COI (conflict of interest) template slapped on it. It also makes future edits extremely difficult or impossible. 

An active detractor on Wikipedia is an editor who may be using the platform for non-neutral edits or to push a personal agenda. The edits these individuals make are sometimes challenging to reverse, especially when the detractor is well-known on Wikipedia and their edits are well-referenced. Well known people are often the subject of unwanted attention and can be targeted by detractors.

Wikipedia articles develop organically over time. It isn't natural for them to spring forth fully developed and is almost certainly a red flag when it does. The best Wikipedia articles evolve naturally over time with edits from multiple experienced Wikipedia editors.
