WTF WIKIPEDIA?!

Postby jxl180 » Wed May 28, 2008 8:56 pm

I made a wikipedia article on HLDJ after seeing HLSS had one. After spending all that time making it, about 10 minutes after I'm done it's deleted for "Blatant Advertising." WTF?! The worse thing is that i have no way to contact that 'admin,' or in my eyes, a noob. Now I'm frustrated. For a while now, until it goes back up somehow, Wikipedia is off my list. Goodbye Wikipedia. It's been fun.

EDIT:

I'm not the only one who has a problem with this noob of an admin:

RE-EDIT:
Now that I think about it, it kind of was set up as an ad more than a factual article. Hmmm, maybe I should just put facts and actually about the program lol.

Yes, good idea. I've done my fair share of work on wikipedia and can say that POV masquerading as fact is the bane of all existence on wikipedia.

Are you a patroller? Even though I said I would stop going to Wikipedia, ever since I said that I am more active on wikipedia lol. Including a Recent Changes Patroller lol. Wikipedia has some sort of control over me lol.

No, just a casual self-appointed contributer.
