Article
Deletion Discussion

Seeing as this community seems related to VGMix, as apparently a lot of artists from here also post their works there, those who are also wikipedia users (I assume someone from this community had something to do with the article on The Shizz), might want to chime in on the discussion for that article's deletion, perhaps preventing that. As of now voting is 2 for deletion, 1 against.

I know I got told to go fuck myself last time I was here for defending the Something Awful forums, but I just thought this might be of some concern to some people here, so I posted a thread. I'll be off now.

There are girls that post on The Shizz, and believe it or not, most of them are in a relationship. Hit on the them in an unsettling manner at your own risk.


I added something with the vaguest amount of sarcasm ever to Wiki once, and they tried to ban me or something for abusing their community.

I didn't read the actual article but I just read the reasoning behind possible deletion and it didn't seem to mention meinpenis or constant use of the "N-word". Man am I disappointed.

maybe the article might need a revision, but vgmix DEFINTELY deserves an article, because they are so crucial in the scene. i think the work there is much better than ocr.

plus its just such a cool place, and if the shizz can have one, then why not the vgmix.

only i dont have an acount so i probably cant complain at wikipedia

The article could definately use more information/ explaning, but deleting it would be ridiculous.
Another one would be made not long after.

"Delete as non-notable website. Stifle"
Stifle, let me tell you what. You and your mom are about as non-notable as your penis. In comparison to vgmix, at least.

that only happens in the mental hospital, anyways.

but yeah, i guess the (nearly) eleven thousand users that vgmix has doesn't qualify it as being that consequential.

Not to mention people like my friends and family who don't register, but download songs anyways. When I have over 6000 downloads for one of my songs, that says something (and no, it's not that I downloaded my own song 6000 times ;))

Agreed. They keep posting articles for deletion based solely on low Alexa ratings, ingnoring actual importance.

I didn't realize they regularly delete articles with a low number of page views. Doesn't that kinda go against the goal of covering everything if you only, you know, cover the popular things?

It's not that the page has a low number of views, it's that the website the page is on isn't viewed much by people with the Alexa toolbar plugin for Internet Explorer. So, naturally, sites that are viewed by more Firefox/whatever else users or people on Macs or people who don't like spyware tend to have low ratings.

So, articles on sites like VGMix get suggested for deletion, while articles on the seven forms of lightsaberr combat are left untouched, as it's not a website and therefore not subject to the "Alexa test".
