You don't need to do much to edit Wikipedia. You just sign up and then do
it. I did this a last month just to remove a link to an incorrect Haskell
implementation of the Graham Scan algorithm. So far, nobody has undone the
edit even though that's the only thing I've ever modified anywhere on

I don't think you'd run into problems even if you did this through a Tor
proxy under different pseudonyms for each edit ;)
