Most criticism of Wikipedia has been directed towards its content, its community of established users, and its processes. The principal criticism it receives concerns the online encyclopedia's factual reliability, the readability and organization of the articles, the lack of methodical fact-checking

"The DFB had commissioned a service provider to revise or expand the entry," the association announced on Friday. When revising the Wikipedia entry, however, it was neglected to mark the changes made as "paid editing". The service provider admitted this "with regret". Reason: The service provider was convinced that the information provided was "neutral and verifiable".

The DFB have "absolute understanding for the criticism and apologize in all forms" for the fact that the Wikipedia rules were disregarded here.

"Der Spiegel" first reported that the association concluded a contract with a consulting company in 2019. On the open question of why the DFB had hired a service provider to revise a Wikipedia article about Curtius, the DFB did not write anything.

In the meantime, Wikipedia has provided the entry on Curtius with a warning. "The neutrality of this article or section is controversial," said the name on Friday afternoon.
