I was looking through Wikipedia and came across the article on Something Awful. This got me to thinking, we should make an INTL article. It could include stuff like is in the FAQ. And it'd just be neat for INTL to be in an encyclopedia, even though it is a wiki. Or maybe this is a stupid idea and I need sleep.

Thoughts?

It could potentially get us some new members, which would be cool. I'm too lazy and don't remember enough to be arsed to actually make it, but I would respect it if it were done.

Might be a bit presumptuous (sp?) of us to think that our lil forum deserves it, though, whatever.

I'm not really sure an INTL entry would be of any interest to anyone from outside INTL, and the information contained in such an entry would be pretty much the same as stuff already posted on INTL in the FAQ and whatnot.

The only use I could see is if we went through and referenced INTL in other wikipedia entries (Heavengames, SA, can't really think of what else).

i think its a good idea.
I hate yankees and this is one reason why. Just because you can't pay for 3 hot dogs doesn't mean that the economy is bad and ya'll think that bush is an idiot because he's from Texas. Well f you because he saved your ass from people like Sadam Houssein and don't go thinking i'm just a minupulated trailor trash illiterate for taking up for him because I'm smarter than 90% of the world.

I think that an INTL Wikipedia article would be pretty cool, though I'm pretty surprised that there's already a HeavenGames article there.

I created a base article that I tried to model loosely on the SA one (OMG INTL IS JUST A RIP OFF OF SA). Feel free to add to it; it doesn't contain much yet. Or if you don't want to bother registering there to edit it, just post what you want me to add and I'll post it.

The skeleton looks okay, so far. Include RS, and use the FAQ to give a brief history of the site and how Sandamnit came up with it, etc.

I didn't include the forums that aren't visible to people who aren't members.

I'll update the history later today.

It looks good so far, but is there any way we can get a direct link to the site? I don't think we'll get very many new members if someone has to cut and paste the address from the bottom.

Just so you know, articles about websites at Wikipedia that aren't listed in the top 100,000 sites at Alexa are marked for deletion. INTL has a rank of 381,997.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Votes_for_deletion#Interesting_Nonetheless_.97_Add_to_this_discussion

However, whoever listed INTL there, used the URL interestingnonetheless.net so when they did the Alexa test, it came up with a rank of over 3 million instead of 381,997 (for the .com).

How accurate to the actual INTL stats is Alexa? It's totally off with HGs in more ways than I can count.

Well, so much for that. I did not realize that.

Stupidest idea in the world.

INTL does not need a fucking Wikipedia article.

Saying an article should be deleted is like saying someone shouldn't open source something because there's already another similar open source project. That's a negative thing.

Creating an encyclopedia article that only maybe 1% of the people who read Wikipedia would understand or "get" is fucking retarded. It'd be like creating an encyclopedia article about an inside joke between you and your friend Dan. "And as it turns out his dog really wasn't a German Shepherd! Hahahaha! In summation, BLEEP BORP! Hahahaha get it Dan?!?! LOL!" An article about SA I can understand because they have thousands of people who visit their forums, not to mention the tens of thousands who probably visit the frontpage.

Not to mention that SA is ranked 4,878 of all sites Alexa lists, which I would guess is somewhere at the 10 million mark.
