Wixpert:Correct and helpful

One of Wixpert's major goals is for its articles to be correct and helpful.

Accurate details are the key to any encyclopedia, but they must be organized well to be helpful. Introducing a topic with a formal definition full of technical jargon is an example of something correct but not helpful (see approachability). An oversimplification that ends up being incorrect is worse. To be a complete, an article must be both correct and helpful - easy enough that anyone can understand the basic idea and thorough enough to include all relevant details once the idea is established.
