I complained to the Wikipedia that they had no article on me, even though I hold many world records in photography and am the world leader in infrared flash street photography.
This is what they wrote back…
“…as to an article on you! We have a huge backlog of requests for biographical Wikipedia articles. I think the list is in the tens of thousands of names long so far. No one wants to write them all— which can be very disappointing.
If you are truly notable, and are interested in getting an article written up on you, you may be able to achieve this via a paid edit. The usual charge is around $300, and is negotiated with individual editors, not with Wikipedia. If this interests you, please let me know.”
Well, money makes the world go round.
