well, yes, do that
I'm not doing it now. going to bed
Put yourself in every page on wikipedia.
Dang it... I put in one funny thing (okay, a plethora of nonsensical funny things relating to TPi, Kyoji, and peeps in teh hood), and within seconds, the page goes back to blank with the notice about "This page meets Wikipedia's criteria for speedy deletion."
Wikipedia hates me
That was just asking for it though
If you realistically don't want it to be deleted, plan it out beforehand to be factual and well written, and maybe, just maybe, it'll stay there.
Have a look at some of the articles for other sites.
Wikipedia is no place for posting private jokes, of course it'll be deleted if you do so. And you might want to change the current article:
You don't say "(more detailed info and history soon)" on wikipedia. Instead you put the "this article is a stub" banner. And try to be neutral (look at the "great english source" sentence)
Talk about the rom policy, the history (GBAtemp used to be a warez site, right?), try to post screenshots of the older versions of the website (archive.org ?), say that PSP discussion is also tolerated...And don"t forget to put links to other articles on the words (Nintendo DS, GBA...)
Come on everybody, get to work
Good luck with that.
Someone put VGmuseum on wikipedia and I added a bunch of things and in less than a day the page was scheduled for deletion.
After a heated debate we emerged victorious.
The wiki accused of promoting, non notability, bloating and lots of other stuff.
They will probably delete the gbatemp wiki based on non-notability.
Pages added on wikipedia usually need to be notable in the sense that magazines and 'respectable' websites link to the page or mention it.
Now, you see, I found VGM well before I ever knew you frequented this site. I'm a little supprised they would give you as much trouble as they did.
Even better: http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://gbatemp.m4d.sm
EDIT: I've cleaned it up, added a little more, and categorized it as a stub. Anyone wanting to check it out may do so here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gbatemp
The first sentence of the introduction is ok, the rest probably needs rewriting, but hey, it's a start.
I don't think GBATemp should be on Wikipedia. It's just not interesting enough.
Even if you add in all the history, rom policy etc you've got to ask yourself, would anyone actually want to read this?
It doesn't belong in an encyclopedia.
But we must try
It's not looking too good anyway, taking this into consideration: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WP:WEB
Looks like the site or content has to be noted in multiple reliable independant sources. Quick, someone start a newspaper or two or get us a mention on Gamespot or something
Holy crap, I remember this! And look, I'm online!
BTW, I tried making a GBAtemp Wiki before but it just got deleted, don't waste your time.
Why don't we add our own Wiki? I know it's possible, The ZeldaPower forum I go to has it's own.
...uh oh... GBA scene links? Are you allowed to even link to that page?
i was having one of my thinking sessions while sat on the toilet the other night (i do a lot of my thinking on the bog lol) and one of my random thoughts about creating a wiki for gbatemp then i come on here today and their is a post going on about it
i added a bit of detail to the gbatemp wiki, not sure if its note worthy or not, but at least the detail is accurate..
prolly a bit of info in it as well, that most members here never knew
edit: feel free to clean up my mistagging and clarify any shortcomings, have no idea how the meta-tags and syntax really work on wikipedia..
You only have to provide a link for certain stuff when it is first mentioned in the article - not with every instance of it. eg. Game Boy Advance, Internet Relay Chat, etc.
