When editing wikipages...

...do you really want to be so unprofessional that you leave your personal comments in them?
 
"A Haunted house mystery game for Kinect. Looks like a combo of an on-rails shooter and a hidden object game. Will absolutely not get above three stars on Giant Bomb dot com, a website about videogames."
 
That was this game's previous headline. Really?

Yeah. Definitely not allowed. Promptly fix things like this, if you see them, people.

This stuff really annoys me, there's so much of it =| And I guess I'm just as guilty for not cleaning up after people in the wiki :(

I'm guessing that was written jokingly, but still, shouldn't be there.

I feel bad when I don't clean up bad wiki articles. I've started several times but I quickly realize that my editing mainly involves removing poorly written and opinionated comments, not actually providing new or better information so I give up. Anyone else have that problem?

Those sorts of subjective comments are not allowed. I clean them up when I come across them.

Its surprising how common things like that are. People ofter put in things like "in this wiki editors opinion this gun is rubbish". I always delete them straight away because it just looks stupid and tacky.

I really haven't come across any of this. Maybe I don't browse the wiki enough.
