I sometimes end up in a Ubuntu wiki page when looking for information. Most of the times that information is a bit out dated, which is fine, others its mostly wrong or does not reflect the actuality.

If I find information on the Ubuntu wiki that is very wrong or even considered dangerous what steps should I take to try to fix it?

Just like Ask Ubuntu, if something is wrong, fix it. :)

If the page is so bad it can't be fixed, consider tagging it for deletion:

As with other projects, the Ubuntu wiki is a community project, if you find something you can improve don't hold back. Imagine what we could do with our user base if everyone contributed just a little ? – bodhi.zazen Feb 23 '12 at 16:03
