Calling all Wikipedians (especially editors)
« on: April 16, 2011, 07:26:41 PM »
I need your help and support fighting the egghead nay-sayers on the Wikipedia. Notes of support here would also be appreciated, as well as with cleanup on the main article itself.

Please keep edits and support clean and professional: anything else would be more detrimental than helpful. But if you believe - as I do - that MW:LL deserves a place on the Wikipedia with all the other previous MW games, I could really use some help here!

Argh, cleanup-troopers going wild is one of the reasons i stopped putting time into wikipedia (the german one is even worse). >:(

Voiced support. If it helps, here is the list of publications Seraph compiled:
http://forum.mechlivinglegends.net/index.php/topic,12687.0.html

On another subject: seeing that that article is (mostly?) by you, couldn't we use that as the basis for the long-time out-standing Sarna article?

Well WTF 11 sources are triple what half the pages on wikipedia talk about... and sometimes it is some local variety food with NO source... I tried long ago to edit the company's page i work for.  I added a nice description, no sources... the previous page said we were part of loblaws (a big and only half liked retail food chain in Canada.)  Nope, aparently because some tart said we were loblaws, i cannot change that.

Good old Wikipedia. Once giving voice to the masses, now yet another top-down hierarchy where petty people can exercise their power because they can.

I need to go reread Animal Farm.

There isn't really much you can do about the wikipedia deletionists, unfortunately. They'll fight for weeks just to be right. Having the users editing the articles and trimming down the uncited sections could help.
"Concentrate on the moment, each moment is its own reality. It has a particular thisness. You can't predict, but you can explain. Or try. If you are observant, and lucky, you can say, this is why this is happening! It's very interesting!"
