    Question Anyone Able to help with Wikipedia?

    So, back in 2011 we posted We're Alive on wikipedia, and it got deleted:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikiped...ry_of_Survival

    So, I was wondering if now's a good time to get it going again? Thoughts? Anyone here an avid editor of Wikipedia and could possibly get us back on?

    What??? They deleted it?

    I *love* the Wikipedia relevance criteria. I consider it more important than for example an article about Mett for example.
    How is looking for such an article? A pork and onion fanatic? m).

    Back to topic, WA prospered whilst being not listed at Wikipedia. However, a Wikipedia article could draw some attention towards this website, too. Hm.

    Yeah, and Wikipedia editing is very fickle...

    here's an excerpt from the chat I had with them...

    [11:29] <+Huon> hellbringerX, how may we help you?
    [11:29] <hellbringerX> just curious why the "we're alive" wikipedia got rejected?
    [11:29] <+Dragonfly6-7> Helpmebot - sorry, what's that?
    [11:29] <+Dragonfly6-7> hellbringerX - URL, please?
    [11:29] <hellbringerX> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipe...ry_of_Survival
    [11:30] <hellbringerX> there's other podcasts that have their own pages on wikipedia
    [11:30] <+Dragonfly6-7> and many more that don't
    [11:30] <+Dragonfly6-7> and just because a given one is on wikipedia, doesn't mean it *should* be on wikipedia
    [11:31] <+Huon> that draft is very short on third-party sources
    [11:31] <+Huon> all I see is either by themselves or by the people who bestowed awards on them
    [11:31] <hellbringerX> true, but this podcast has been nominated and won awards, and their URLs listed in the reference section
    [11:31] <+Huon> no third party seems to have bothered to report on those awards
    [11:32] <hellbringerX> what if the article was beefed up on content? I'm looking at this particular one as an example (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Welcome_to_Night_Vale)
    [11:32] <+Dragonfly6-7> good lord, Night Vale
    [11:32] <+Dragonfly6-7> that one is huge
    [11:33] == niko [~niko@freenode/staff/ubuntu.member.niko] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
    [11:33] <+Dragonfly6-7> *is* there as much coverage on 'We're Alive" as there is on Night Vale ?
    [11:33] <+Huon> what you should beef it up on is reliable third-party sources such as newspaper articles or reviews published in reputable magazines
    [11:34] <hellbringerX> yeah, i don't understand the series at all.... welcome to night vale, but it seems to merit a page
    [11:35] <hellbringerX> itunes has we're alive ranked higher than the other podcast
    [11:35] == jamesawatson [97e4c9bb@gateway/web/freenode/ip.151.228.201.187] has joined #wikipedia-en-help
    [11:35] <+Helpmebot> Hi there, jamesawatson. Welcome to the English Wikipedia help channel! Please ask your question and wait for a reply (this could take several minutes). If you are asking about a particular page, please provide a link.
    [11:36] <+Huon> hellbringerX, that's not the kind of source we're looking for - it doesn't have any editorial oversight or the like
    [11:36] <jamesawatson> James B watson is a Turd
    [11:37] <+Huon> jamesawatson, do you have any serious questions about editing Wikipedia? Otherwise please leave this channel
    [11:37] <hellbringerX> so third party website that has some editors behind it (not reddit or tumble)
    [11:37] <+Dragonfly6-7> hellbringerX - there's loads of media coverage of Night Vale

    Here's the article of creation:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipe...ry_of_Survival

    A few extra links to help:

    OC register article: http://www.ocregister.com/articles/s...one-radio.html

    Buzzfeed article: http://www.buzzfeed.com/jordanzakari...dcasts-revival

    Our IMDB page: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2089578/?ref_=ttfc_fc_tt

    Just a few for now. Perhaps mentioning a few of our notable voice actors, Bob Bergen and Seth Peterson might be good ones to mention.

    UPDATE: For anyone wondering. Wikipedia is very fickle about content creators (US) posting articles, which is why we're hoping that people on the forum might be able to help us get this article up. Hellbringer was speaking with Wikipedia above in help to authenticate the article.

    Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

    It says on Brett Newtons IMBD page, along with some demo reels of him, that he's worked on some pretty big Disney animations, is it the same person? Because if it is, then that could be included with the list of voice actors...maybe....?

    I hate to ask this about Wikipedia... but when it comes to creating articles, being a donor hasn't been linked to legitimacy yet, has it?

    Hey, get a load of this. Guess who started writing again and has a spot in the fan fiction subforum?

    I've got some free time over the weekend so I'll have a go and see what I can do. Maybe if the wikipedia moderators get enough requests, they'll listen to us.
