Hey guys,

As of today, I started an article for us on Wikipedia. I want all of you guys to help expand it. Please do not spam or vandalize though. But please, do have fun.

Thanks! sbiggrin.gif I edited it a bit more. I don't know how to use Wikipedia, except for the basics, so I don't know how to add in links or references. So what I added is pretty bare.

I think maybe we should elaborate more on the history of Origin...instead of linking it as a reference, maybe we can pull out the important events (not that anything isn't important) and give a brief summary. Also, covering the XT project would be a good idea. But like Sing, I also don't know a whole lot about it. And, since Jinghao spent so much time on the Origin MODs and scripts, do you think we should cover them?

Also...our references are numbered, but nothing in the article uses those numbered references. ...just something I noticed. :/ idk, I'm weird like that.

If they don't want anything on bands and stuff, why are there NUMEROUS pages on bands and musicians that have yet to be deleted?

Well, I think if we all contribute something every once in a while, there's less of a chance of them deleting it.

As another suggestion, we should make Wikipedia accounts, edit a lot of articles, and become admins, then take over Wikipedia (or at least have enough power to keep our article up). Or we could create one account that we all use, and get it done faster, since at least one of us would be on at all times. If anyone wants to, just give the Username and password.

Lol, I vote for taking over Wikipedia. XD

Or, we could create a universal username, like "Origin" or something. o_o idk...

There is a thread in the Origin Center regarding the history of Origin. I wonder, should we copy that over?

EDIT: The article was deleted apparently.

^Awesome. :3

We should probably pull together all the information we need before either resubmitting the page or asking to have the article reviewed for undeletion. I'm looking into how to get all our info back.

Okay, how about putting what you want written in the submissions forum or something? Or rather -- post what you want written in the article here.

I wrote on Evilclown93's talk page. He's the guy that deleted our article.

OriginXT
The article for OriginXT was not quite finished when it was deleted. I and others working on the page are still new to using Wikipedia, so we are still learning the proper way to post an article, how to list references, which references to use and how to write a good article in general.

If it is possible, is there any way to restore the article? It was still under construction. If there is no way to restore it, is there any way to gain back what we wrote, so we can improve on our article? Please help. Thank you. Icedragon0803 01:46, 3 July 2007 (UTC)

I wasn't sure if everyone else who edited was new to writing for Wikipedia or not...guess I should have asked around before I posted. riiight.gif

Hopefully, we get a positive reply.
