As a collaborative encyclopedia, Wikipedia is edited by an international group of volunteers without any kind of centralized coordination. As such, editing does not involve a centralized editing authority. There is no “editor in chief” or specific “editor” to be written to, and no one person (or particular group of persons) empowered to overrule editing decisions made by the editorial community.
As with all Wikipedia content, the article(s) of interest to you are written by a wide range of people working together. Editing takes place within collaboratively-determined rules and policies — not by employees or “staff writers”. The volunteer community as a whole, and not specific people within it, are the body who ultimately decides whether specific content and styles meet the standards of Wikipedia.
Please note that as a result, neither the Wikimedia Foundation nor the email volunteers can or will:
- delete articles, references, links or images you find unpleasant
- reinsert articles, references, links or images that you think should be included
- overrule editorial decisions (unless there is a pressing legal issue, which is not the case in your request)
The only venues for requesting editorial changes are the relevant discussion pages on the site, and the specific “dispute resolution” routes defined by the editorial community for bringing unresolved concerns to the attention of other editors to gain their opinion. Beyond that there is no other authority by whom article content is dictated. Neither the email team nor the Foundation will unilaterally alter the site or its content based on petitions, chain letters, or any other means of concerted campaigning. All of that is decided by the editing community in its own on-site discussions.
If you are interested in engaging with our volunteer community to resolve editorial disputes, you are welcome to. Wikipedia is a “wiki,” which means anyone can edit and no account is required. You may wish to view <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Dispute_resolution> for more details.
