I thought I'd point out certain corrections that should be made to this Wiki

CORRECTION 1
The ability to post in the Rattlesnake Pit or to be given extra flexibility in editing posts...

The Wiki says nothing about who has extra flexibility in editing posts.

CORRECTION 2
Additionally, cows enable->s<- many privileges->,<- that ha->s<- been mentioned ->by<- this topic.

Change this to

Additionally, cows enable many privileges that have been mentioned in this topic.


CORRECTION 3
Earning cows ->are<- cool, so one should lead to the other right?

Change this to

Earning cows is cool, so one should lead to the other right?

OR

Cows are cool, so one should lead to the other right?

Thanks for the suggestions Joe. Our Wiki pages are editable by all so feel free to make the updates yourself.

Of course if you just don't fancy it then I can do it no problem.

I can't find an edit button.

If Wiki pages are really editable by all, I hope that you have set up a system to rollback bad edits.

Correction 1: We deliberately do not specify the exact rules around who can and cannot edit posts.
Correction 2: Change made.
Correction 3: Change made.

Thanks for taking the time to point these out to us. Have a cow!

Have a cow for pointing out those mistakes!

I think editing the wiki is limited to those with "Rancher" status. And yes, moderators have access to the edit history, and can roll back to previous versions. But vandalism is rare, since it can be traced back to the person who did it.

The Wiki pages are editable by all .... well ... for the majority of pages anyway. However, in a few cases, and this is one of them, it is not editable by all. This is generally true for pages that describe the features of the ranch. After all, if these restrictions didn't exist, then someone can do something like add themselves to the book promotions winners page... ... this is something that is probably preferable to not be vandalized, even for a short period of time.
