RPGamer @ Wikipedia?

edited July 2005 in Site & Forum Support
In my spare time (roughly 11:58pm to 11:59pm every three weeks), I like to unwind with a nice, relaxing session of Wikipedia authoring and editting. On my latest trip through Wikiland, it occurred to me that RPGamer doesn't have a Wikipedia entry. That should not be! Other sites *cough* have 'em; so should we!

So if you know your history of RPGamer and would like to help, you can start here...

http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=RPGamer&action=edit

...and if someone starts it, it'll end up being here...

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

I hope there are a couple of Wikipedians around to help out with this because it wouldn't be too approrpriate for myself or another staff member to work on this since we're a bit biased.

Thanks in advance to anyone who pitches in!

    All I do at Wikipedia is edit out Commonwealth spelling. So I can help in that regard when the time comes. biggrin.gif

    Man, I don't even know who wrote our stub. It certainly wasn't me. Oh, well, open encyclopedia, I guess.

    MonCap: This isn't the place to make such posts. Had you read the rules more carefully you would have known the reason why you couldn't start topics.

    Edit by maryadavies: Read the rules. They say why you can't make a topic yet. This is also not the place to make such posts...

    Sorry to bring this up again..

    But thanks to Odd from #rpgamer, it's finally done.

    I added some stuff I remembered, and I think Martyr added some stuff and reminded me of a date.

    It's also at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rpgamer (probably a miss-capitalization: that was the original.)

    Anyway, ye staffers, feel free to add to it. My memory is a bit rusty, which is why I didn't start it until Odd did something.

    I think you should use Firemyst's real name in the article. ?His internet nickname will be meaningless to anyone who comes across the article and is unfamiliar with the site.

    Use of Commonwealth spelling is considered a vice and offenders will be sent to gaol where they will rot and mould.

    The RPGamer Wikipedia entry looks good.

    I am.

    It can be annoying, transfering writing to/from the US, but most of the world uses US spelling anyway, despite their "Commonwealth" allegiance.
    Mostly because MS Word spellcheck defaults to US English, and most of us are too lazy to switch it.
    That, and I never use the word "gaol" unless I'm really trying to.

    That was a heck of a long time ago, but! An elephant never forgets. I may not be an elephant, but my brand new cold makes me sound like one.
    You DARE to slander our glorious British spelling? You better not be, or I shall enact some drastic measures. Such as punting your colourful faaace several hundred metres.
    A vice, indeed. Psssh.

    On a side note, two paragraphs? Poor Wikipedia looks lonely.
