Yes, I wrote a fake page about myself.
No, not hard at all.
Yes, it was deleted an hour later.

I wrote one, and my friend edited it, and we went back and forth and did that, and when I went back to it all that we had done was gone=P

I wrote an Uncyclopedia page about the town I live in. It was a LOT of fun.

You have to establish your self over a period of time before you reach a level of trust where your work is not likely to be removed. I have been occasionally editing and filling stubs since shortly after Wiki started and it only in the last two or three years that all my work remains untouched.

Lurve to all for the generous information. You have given me a great snapshot of how Wikipedia operates and what is required to become a contributer.

Many thanks!
