Wiki etiquette?

I just happened to look at the wiki page for Basilica and noticed it had a strategy section. But it's like the worst possible advice:

Quote
If you draw a 2/5 opening hand, consider if it would be worth giving up a 5-cost buy to instead purchase a 3-cost action or a Silver to collect the victory points. Similarly, you could play at least 2 money and then buy a Copper.

However, in a Colony game, it might be smarter to ramp up your economy and gain the Basilica VP later instead of stalling during the first few turns.

I know for some the wiki's strategy advice is just a joke, but it seems like it's a lot of new people's go to resource. As a result I worry stuff like this could hurt people's enjoyment of the game. But I don't have any particular strategy advice to replace it though. So what do people recommend in cases like this? Just delete it? Add a note that this advice is suspect? Are there wiki best practices that cover this sort of thing?

If you're not sure, you can put something on the article's Talk page (click the "Talk" tab up the top and put a section in there). If you're pretty sure the advice is complete rubbish you can probably remove it from the article (and maybe copy to the Talk page for reference).

Please feel free to just change the advice.  That's the whole point of the wiki format!  I don't always catch when someone puts something stupid up there.

Contrary to popular belief, I do not run the wiki all on my own.  There are plenty of other people who are actively editing.  Go bother them!

On a similar note. I have encountered a few times where I would want to change the 'Official Rules' section to clarify them.  I cannot find a current example.  I am curious as to the best way to approach changing 'Official' portion of some pages.  Thanks.
