since abandonia has an article on wikipedia now, why not create one for reloaded as well, it could bring in a few extra visitors...   :P

anyway I've started it off so that all you have to do is hit the edit button and start typing: http://en.wikipedia....ndonia_Reloaded :bleh:

Nope, you can edit without signing in - it just tracks your IP address (so they can still ban people who vandalise it, etc).

looks like some nitwit proposes to delete the article, so let's improve it so that it becomes a worthy article. :bleh:

Ah. So how much time do we have until the nitwit has it removed? Anyway, even if we do edit it, that won't change anything about our traffic rank, will it? Oh well...

Well why hasn't it been said on the "talk page"?!

I'm going to dig through the Wikipedia guidelines for creation and deletion a little more before diving into some kind of confrontation - I don't want to mess with some Wikinazi who apparently scours newly created articles for problems without being properly armed with a bit of knowledge.

I mean, it was under two hours later that it was nominated, so either someone is obsessive compulsive with way too much time on their hands, or it's someone who read this post, and I seriously doubt the latter. If it's the former, someone like that can be a real pain to deal with, especially if they take offense that their proposition has been contested.

Regardless, it's better to figure out why it's been nominated, because it's always possible that Mr. Hateless is correct in nominating the article for deletion (of course, that doesn't mean it will be deleted, either :bleh: ). Thus far, according to the guidelines he's cited, I'm not really sure AR does fit the "notability" criterion he cited as being an issue - however, the page itself states that the criterion is not an ultimate rule.

Well, technically the site didn't win anything, did it? Tom and Kosta did, but we can hardly claim them just for AR.:bleh:
But then again, it was an award thingy that was mainly intended for abandonware sites, not freeware. As far as "pure" freeware sites are concerned, however, AR probably is one of the most important - even if freeware doesn't tend to draw quite as much attention overall as abandonware does. If there were similar sort of awards for freeware sites, though, I bet we'd stand a decent chance.

Wikipedia tells you to be bold in your editing so I have removed the deletion note, and directed him to the talk page, so we'll hear. :bleh:

In the mean time I suggest to improve the article content, it will not be lost work, if there is decided to delete it after all, we can move the content to the main Abandonia Article.

I also made the screenshot a tid larger so that it looks better :P

Hmm, I don't mean to be picky, but does it have to be a screenshot featuring the banner with that awful slogan?:bleh:

Actually, you can claim mine for AR ;)
At the award ceremony, I asked specifically to be mention with AR as my site. Each nominee could only have one site affiliated with them, and mine was AR. So... AR won :P


Edit...
Ugh... Tux? :bleh:

Seriously, that's like one of the most boring banners. :P
We should showcase the best banner on Wikipedia. I think Trilby's Notes, Enclosure, GunZ, Lost in the Nightmare, Noctis or Stranger by Night are the best ones, personally.

Edit 2:
Fixed some minor things in the article - mainly adding the birthdate, and including all four founders. And also fixing the bit that said that all our crew members came from AB.

Yo!
