Amy Macdonald checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@amymacdonald) on Saturday (February 7), discussing her failed effort to make edits to her Wikipedia entry. The Scottish singer/songwriter tells readers:
So, I get sent emails giving me updates on every chart position and album sales throughout the world.
I look on something like Wikipedia, and see that there are so many mistakes on there. Now it’s quite special to me getting a number 1 single and album and some chart positions that people have entered on Wikipedia take my number 1’s away from me.
So I decided I would correct the page and enter the right positions. It helps me for the information on there to be correct as a lot of people who interview me use this site as their reference.
However every time I try to change anything, it get’s changed back by people who then get so annoyed at me and tell me I’m wrong.
I know this is such a random blog but I find it hilarious. I was actually sitting laughing to myself when I got a message telling me I was wrong and with no references I had no right to change any information.
Surely I am reference enough hahahaha
Anyway I’ve tried and failed to put the right information on this website, so take anything on it with a huge pinch of salt :-)
