I often refer to Wikipedia for math questions, and in my opinion most or their articles are excellent. But I really disliked this one: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compact_space If you read the first one or two sentences, you can probably guess a few reasons why (I can edit this question to include my beefs, if anyone wants). I think it is crying out for improvement. I guess I could become a Wikipedia editor and complain about it or maybe edit it, but I would guess that a lot of MSE and MathOverflow participants are Wikipedia editors, know more about topology than me, and could do a better job of improving the article. My question is, is MSE an appropriate place to post such a plea? I'd bet it would get a lot more viewership on MSE than on the Wikipedia Talk page.
EDIT: The beginning of the article https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compact_space was improved greatly around the end of October 2013.
This question is pretty much the same as this one: Questions concerning editing of wikipedia articles . There was one answer, not accepted, that seemed to say that such a post on MSE would be appropriate. I did not read the comments. I've never seen anyone post a question on MSE asking for improvement for a Wikipedia article before, so I want to make sure there's not some guideline against it that I'm unaware of.
