If it's on Wikipedia, it must get here eventually.

This is a Wiki and I like it when other people add things. There's one thing however that appears on Wikipedia repeated over and over that grates and I just found it copied to a profile here. Please, Charles I did not "Decide to rule without Parliament for eleven years"!

I search WikiTree with the phrase:

rule without Parliament for eleven years

There were 10 profiles with that exact wording with "Charles decided to" in front. You could easily edit that number of profiles.

There I so many things I never think to do or even know how to do it. I shall try.

"he decided" does not appear on Wikipedia.  It just says:
"The following eleven years, during which Charles ruled England without a Parliament, are referred to as the personal rule or the "eleven years' tyranny".   And "ruled without recourse to Parliament".

That might be on Charles's page. Try scores of articles about parliamentarians.
