This is Getting Stupid

The Deletionists at Wikipedia are going through and deleting all the RPG articles again.  There is a crew of them and they are pushing some sort of agenda, but there are not enough people to source the articles to save them.

So I am again asking for help.  I need third party sources. Tons of them.
Magazine reviews, newspapers, nothing is too small.

Here are the articles in danger:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flying_Buffalo
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rick_Loomis
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lord_Soth
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vecna

Give me hand with these please!

Wikipedia is irritating me

Well.  Not Wikipedia, but some of the deletionists.
Now they want to delete the article on Tharizdun, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tharizdun

So. Anyone know of some good 3rd party (not TSR or WotC) references?
I have a stack of magazines to go through, but I am running on fumes now.
Could use some help on Night Hag as well.

Imitation is the most sincerest form of flattery but ...

Not when you are imitating me on Wikipedia.
But it is funny.

So I was looking up some Scooby Doo episodes (I have kids, I am allowed) and I discovered that much of the "information" on the Hex Girls actually came from my blog here.

 I'd go in and change it, but frankly I am too busy and find I don't honestly care.   In truth I find it a bit amusing and I am kind of curious to see if anyone else catches it.

Thorn is as confused as I am.
Yeah, yeah I am obsessed with a band that doesn't exist and are secondary characters in a cartoon.

Well at least these guy get me. ;)

OSR Links and Call for Editors

Here are some links and news for all OSR fans out there.

First, I want to repeat that Jason Vey of Elf Lair Games has a poll up.
http://elflairgames.blogspot.com/2012/07/contemplating-kickstarter.html

Howling Tower, the blog of long time vet Steve Winter has both an article up at Kobold Quarterly, http://www.koboldquarterly.com/k/front-page13022.php and listing of some of the best free OSR products, http://www.howlingtower.com/p/old-school-renaissance-resources.html.

Also we need some editors to expand this Wikipedia article:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dungeons_%26_Dragons_simulacrums

This article is about all the D&D clones, near clones and other such games we love in the OSR.
Please be sure to include any external and third-party refs.
