Anyone got a Wikipedia Account? (in General)


AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] April 29 2010 2:22 PM EDT

Or know how to use one?

Sacrilegiously, we're not listed under their;

List of multiplayer browser games

While games like Evony, RuneScape and Urban Dead are.

Time for a change! :P

If I add it can I have the link be my referral? xD

Carnage Blender used to have a Wikipedia page, but it got deleted, because it did not meet the Wikipedia guidelines (IIRC, the Notability criteria). I think that should be solved first, before it gets added to a list.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] April 29 2010 2:28 PM EDT

What's that Bart? And how do we solve it?

(Elite, if you do, do I get a 10% finders fee? :P)

We were on there previously, but it was removed as "not important enough" or something. I don't know if that has changed now, but we can try adding it again. Look here for more details.

Added CB to that list but...


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carnage_Blender

doesn't exist

Eliteofdelete [Battle Royale] April 29 2010 2:35 PM EDT

Haha sure GL! :) But I don't think Wiki would like such a link :(.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] April 29 2010 2:37 PM EDT

Ah, I see now.

Hmm.. I get they wouldn't like a 'promotionary' or ad page, and we'd need more 'notability' to warrant our own page.

But adding us in to the list of existing games should be ok?

I guess we are not worthy enough till we post 5 million barley clad women ads...I nominate Zeni to get started! :P

barley clad women

hmmmmmm.... beer

It's Wikipedia. If and when they delete us, just add it back in.

AdminNightStrike April 29 2010 8:34 PM EDT

We need someone to publish an article about us. Then we can cite that article and thus become noteworthy.

Reading that made me sad :(

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] April 30 2010 3:36 AM EDT

But it needs to be form a third party, not involved with CB. :/

Maybe get some kind of independant games review website or some such to come and have a look.

quick find a journalist!

AdminNightStrike April 30 2010 1:13 PM EDT

GL - not really. google for "pen name" :)

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] April 30 2010 3:31 PM EDT

i think sut would be a most excellent choice for this if he is able & willing.

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- April 30 2010 3:45 PM EDT

I think Sut and Bast should combine forces on this one.

Godpanda April 30 2010 5:51 PM EDT

Bast = Editor?
