Can someone fix the Wiki on 2012 Convention? Says RP Didn't Make Ballot (Wrong - Six States)

Work to do, I don't know how to Wiki. Write up to "2012 Republican National Convention" says:

"Michele Bachmann, Jon Huntsman, Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul all won delegates in the Republican primaries but came short of showing a plurality in five states. "

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2012_Republican_National_Conven...

Map included.

As we know this is dead wrong. Source for links you will need:

"Media Says Paul Won Six States, Qualifies for Nomination" (Hubpages)

Don't let the trolls distract you keep moving up the hill laddies! No stopping for wounded we'll fetch them later!

Looks like a Santorumite did that page

What are you fightin' for?
Caught in the middle?
Freedom is only for those with the guts to defend it!

honest mistake

notice how errors like this always happen to go against ron paul and what he stands for?

Bump

wiki page still wrong.

November 6th 2012 I voted for Dr.Ron Paul
"We must remember, elections are short-term efforts. Revolutions are long-term projects." ~ Ron Paul

Nice

Good idea

I also had to fix the Wikipedia page about Ron Paul's official campaign a few months ago to say he did NOT drop out.

If no one fixes this is a few hours, I might do it when I get to a computer (I'm on an iPod right now).

Who is stopping you from doing it?

If you have the skills to post here, you have the skills to edit the wiki.

I try to change people every day. Do You?

That's not what I found out the last time I tried to

edit a wiki. Okay I'll try later, it is still the same. But can't a big strong geek ride to my rescue?

Somebody, anybody, Wiki?

Bump, dont let these liars win! Cheating, thieving, lying scum!

The fact that we won at least 6 states and made ballot should

at least be correct on wikipedia, which is a public record of sorts which will last long beyond the convention. But if we fix it there we can also refer any journalist to it NOW.
