So - it looks very serious.
there are people who are deleting things and there is no due process.
This is not the best way to run a rational institution.
It might seem silly to demand a chance for informational accuracy in this particular world, but perhaps it might be time to attempt to take this to a higher administrative power within the Wikipedia hierarchy?
The entire concept of notability is antithetical to the functioning of the internet.
who cares about Phlostigen, i mean really who really knows what a gluon is, and i have never even herd of an ibex, they must be radically unimportant.
My personal complaint is the deletion of underground music outfit from Australia named "go genre everything".
The entry was online for years and years, passing test of citeability and wikification, being written by people who were only just familiar with computer literacy.
Suddenly it is Deleted in a moment of A7 swift deletion fervour.
The question of Notability is the one i really wish to raise.
I have seen people noted on wikipedia as trivial.
I have never met a trivial human being in my entire life.
Individuals may have an enormous effect on the environment, but I suspect that if it is looked into , it is not so much the effect of individuals which create massive change, but the so called trivial people who do all the grunt work to make it happen.
By what criteria are we needing to define one person as more important than another. if the article is too long say make it shorter. if the article is badly written, get it written better, but why, does not everybody in the entire world have a wikipedia page detailing their biography?
It must be a hardware issue.
That would explain why so many of the "trivial" people as has been mentioned above have been deleted, in favour of important things such as the A7 motorway.
Please contact Wikipedia and continue to encourage non biased detailed encyclopedic information pertinent to all existing things!
I have to totally agree. A band I play Bass for (Stress Factor 9) was deleted, so was Randy Rampage's homepage (founder of DOA and lead singer of Stress Factor 9). Randy was the goddamn founding member of DOA, a band cited as a major influence by the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Some pointy haired nitwit editor has unilaterally deleted this, assuming no one is interested.
The main point of why this type of action is dangerous, is that you delete truth and promote lies (my entries on ebXML were deleted and I was banned for vandalism for stating the truth while the ebXML entry in Wikipedia was full of errors). When you try to control the uncontrollable, the result always sucks.
Wikipedia needs to wake up and realize it is hovering on the brink of relevancy before it is laughed away as the sham it is becoming.
