He is referring to WarLight's Wikipedia page. It was marked for deletion because it lacked sources and it was "just a big ad" apparently.

Here at WarLight, we fight back. I don't remember who, but someone removed the deletion template. And now we're going to rebuild it and Wikipedia will be forced to accept us. If Wikipedia doesn't like us we'll wait until they do like us and the article is allowed to stay up.

I appreciate your intentions Bane but as a seasoned veteran of Wikipedia I will be commandeering this project and beginning work on the new article immediately.

PM ME if you would like to help.

It was the page on Wikipedia.org that was taken down. For a while the page had a warning written on the top that it could be taken down due to lack of relevance or something like that.

Wikipedia admins are a bunch of pushovers, they don't know what the hell is relevant unless someone tells them. Someone didn't like WarLight and had the page taken down, simple. Now we need manpower to recreate it.

In the Germany Wikipedia the WarLight article wouldn't have survived for a day. The criticism leading to the removal was quite sound. The main mistake was adding tons of internas. Since WarLight is lacking external references the article should have been very small. Maybe looking at other articles about gaming sites like armorgames can help. Now that the article has been taken down it's probably to late for a standalone WarLight article as long as WarLight is lacking references.

Germans are cold, heartless individuals with nothing but ridicule for every action and achievement. Look no further than the history of Germany to see what I'm talking about. Norman, I believe your background explains how you feel about Wikipedia and why your position is so wrong.

The English Wikipedia is a place of freedom and anarchy. As I stated the admins are pushovers; I have seen articles that have been up for years that are more simplistic than the Warlight article. If it keeps being recreated, eventually Wikipedia will see our points and let it stay up.

And Norman I'm offended by your ignorance on this subject matter; you shouldn't have come here to comment about it if you didn't have the knowledge, which clearly you don't because you mentioned the German Wikipedia. The German Wikipedia is irrelevant.

Wtf are you so rude to all Germans and Norman? I mean I dont like Germany either, but that doesnt mean you can insult everyone you want. Go back to your own business and do something productive... like creating a Wikipedia article.

You should write a wikipedia-article entitled "How to make your 'opinion' irrelevant in three simple sentences".

Perhaps to give it more credit the article should focus on the AI competitions, refering to all the gaming theory articles and various AI types, shit like that, make it sound more like a base for research, wikips love that...

Nitro1's a spoiled child, with no understanding of how wikipedia works or how the real world in general works. He just throws temper tantrums expecting to get his way. When you engage him in logic and rationale he simply throws mud at you because mud slinging is all he's actually any good at, and only then because he's an unwashed heathen who can find plenty of mud within arms reach.

Regarding restoring the Warlight Wikipedia page, this seems as if it could be of help.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Deletion_policy#Undeletion

Also, the reason it was listed for deletion seems to be the lack of reliable sources. These links were within Belgian Gentleman's previous link to the Warlight Wikipedia page deletion discussion, but it seems as if this could be helpful to place the links within this forum too.

A point listed in the deletion discussion was that the links listed on Warlight's Wikipedia page were not notable. As such, we should see that references follow the notability guideline: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Notability#General_notability_guideline

This link talks about the use of reliable sources for Wikipedia pages on videogames and give a large list of reliable and unreliable sources: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WikiProject_Video_games/Sources

@DanWL: There isn't that much benefit for WarLight to have it's own Wikipedia article. Wikpedia links get ignored in Googles pagerank and a player reading a Wikipedia article about WarLight probably already knows about WarLight.

I haven't looked into the details however for me the best + easiest way to place WarLight in the Wikipedia is in the existing "Risk (game)" article.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Risk_(game)

At first sight the sections "Risk clones" and "Computer and video games" look quite weak to me. I (like probably quite some others) found WarLight as they were seaarching for a computer implementation of the Risk game.

The problem with that is that it's a primary source (i.e. something that Fizzer wrote himself). Wikipedia articles requires the vast majority of the sources to be secondary sources as a method to determining notability.

@Clement, By useful I really only meant this part.

According to a press release Warlight has "more than 8,800,000 multi-player games played" [ref.]

That makes it relevant (for Wikipedia), I would say.
