An article about FUDforum is now available on the Wikipedia site at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FUDforum. Please feel free to improve and expand it by hitting the "Edit this page" link.

Unfortunately the article is only available in English at this time. It would be great if you guys can help to translate it into other languages as well.

Best regards.

Frank

Hi,

This article was nominated for deletion. Apparently it is not "notable" enough to be listed on Wikipedia. I, however, strongly disagree! If you know of any "notable" references, please help by voting against it over at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/FUDforum

Best regards.

The main problem with "notability" is that it is subjective and open to interpretation. Thousands, if not millions, of users are using the software every single day, but the techies behind these sites are normally not the most verbose bunch. Other considerations/ complications include:
- Anyone running a "competing" forum may never think FUDforum is notable.
- Spelling, FUDforum was once known as "FUD forum".
- I understand that FUDforum was even slashdotted at some stage, but I cannot find a URL.
Etc.

Anyway, it would be great if you can register a "KEEP" vote on the above page.

Best regards.

Spent almost 45 minutes there today trying to decipher how to do that; any ideas?


Updating wikipedia can be a bit daunting. You basically need to ensure you are logged on, navigate to the article, hit 'edit', append your motivation to the textarea and click 'Save'. Your motivation must be formatted like this:

*'''KEEP''': Your reason. Regards. ~~~~

* will be rendered as a new bullet point.
'''text''' will render text in bold.
~~~~ will be expanded to your userid and the current timestamp.

Guys, please go and vote for this page to be kept on wikipedia. Just a simple "keep" vote without reason will already help.

Thank you very much Kerry!

Let's start at Media citations. Don't worry too much about the syntax. Just paste the info into the page. I'll fix it up later.
