Has anyone here ever written a lot for Wikipedia?

I tried writing for Wikipedia, but not much. I admit I do not have sufficient knowledge in many fields of science. But I try. I have some problems with academic papers on anatomy and I would like to ask for help here nursingpaper.org/. Wikipedia doesn't give people complete information, in my opinion. For full knowledge of the issue is better to look for books or individual articles.

It's an encyclopedia. It isn't meant to provide "full knowledge", but just an introduction and enough information so that you know what to look for if you want to delve deeper. Anyway, what does "full knowledge" about a topic even mean anyway?

I never wrote much for Wikipedia and never considered it as I would have to keep my writing brief and my contributions will inevitably be replaced by someone else who has another source that would contradict with mine. I don't want the info to be brief, I want to be extensive and to provide sufficient context and info so the information could be properly understood.

If I ever start editing I would change all the dates from BCE and CE to BC and AD and fix all the simplified spelling in words such as ''favor'' and edit it to ''favour'' and ''civilization'' to ''civilisation'' :)

You´re kidding, aren´t you? Or are you a special agent of the Catholic Church for cleansing Wikipedia of atheistic elements?
Close. I'm a secret agent of the Baptist Church assigned to cleanse Wikipedia of atheistic elements. I also am assigned to the church's Harry Potter book burning division.

And now that you know my secret...well....

I thought that Wikipedia articles could be long? For instance, my Wikipedia article here is pretty long :):
