So lets assume for a moment that our extra-planetary observers are using standing stones as guidance devices. It would mean that there would have to be similar devices across the globe.
North America - hmm ... not sure.
Peru and South America - Check.
PAcific Ocean (Easter Island) - Check.
Asia - Check.
UK - Checkedy-Check.
Europe - Check.
Australia .... wait a minute.

Add Ayers Rock to the list mate-

What I always do before quoting from a Wiki page is checking their references.

Often I don't even quote from such a Wiki page, but from one of the references

You really think that is a 'standing stone'??

It's a big rock alright, but it's a natural rock.

Or else you could add Mount Everest.

Anyway, it's called Uhuru now, isn't it?

Speaking of Ayers Rock, one researcher fearlessly speculates that it may be a huge alien mothership disguised as a rock-

There are even curious rock anomalies on the moon such as this one in the crater Tycho-

Tycho is 86 kms diameter...

and contains this central peak...

in which a boulder can be seen nestling in a depression on the summit like an egg in a nest...

I said in my book, not Myles' book.

Overall I find Wiki to be helpful when I do use it, which is very infrequent.  I don't even have it bookmarked or favorite.

But there was an incident 15 years ago or more that I was familiar with at the time. 10 years later, reading on Wiki from a link somebody provided me revealed what I consider to be a spin on the story, with a little fudging on numbers.

So, the idea that just anybody can go in and edit has its upside, but also a downside possibility.  It seems easy for abuse to me.

It is, which is why the staff keeps track of and tries to verify edits and closely monitors hot-button topics. For a while, both the UFO and Bigfoot entries were locked due to editing wars between believers and skeptics.The puma punku entry actually got a fringe edit added and reversed by the staff while it was being referenced in the middle a discussion here on UM.

First of all, show some respect to the Indigenous People.
Secondly, if they use any rock as a mystical navigation aid, then why feel the need to make shapes out of them elsewhere?

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.

see, wouldn't it save them so much time & effort if they dropped this "The Encylopedia Anyone can Edit" gimmick? It would surely enhance their reputation for reliability as well. Let anyone who wants to contribute articles, but verify them before putting them up & don't let other people mess about with them.
I'll suggest it to Jimmy Wales or whatever his name is.

it's not any rock; it's got to be one that can focus the energy pattern of the earth. That's why granite is popular, on account of the quartz.

I think the advantages from crowdsourcing outweigh the disadvantages. I daresay many of the subjects mentioned here probably wouldn't even have entries if someone hadn't seen fit to add them themselves. I've been tempted to add stuff myself, having seen quite a few things that were incomplete.

Well that rules out Uluru then - it's sandstone.

oh yes, like I said, it's not my theory, just what people say.
Sandstone might able to too, though, who knows.

1- yes you're right, the aborigines called it Uluru long before Ayers "discovered" it.
2- Today there are all sorts of navigation beacons in different shapes, sizes and colours, for example I can see a red/white striped one across the harbour from my window. Same with ancient stones, they're all different shapes and sizes.. :)
