Revision history [back]

It's generally recommended that new editors stay away from articles on controversial topics, as those are usually edited by a specific set of editors with a certain idea of how the article should look and what should or shouldn't be in the article. It can also be very difficult for new editors to edit because it's often very easy to insert original research or personal opinion when writing on a controversial topic.

Wikipedia also has an essay page that describes many types of "bad article ideas" available at WP:BA, however if you're ever concerned about whether an article topic is appropriate for your project don't hesitate to contact your Content Expert!
