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:

Give me hand with these please!

I don't understand. Why are they deleting them?

Timothy S. Brannan said...

Claims that they are not notable.

Note that it has to be notable to them, and things they are not interested in can't be notable.

Some folks have a hard time understanding that they alone cannot determine what is and what isn't important.

I can see their argument, at least in part. You don't necessarily need long, detailed articles on fictional characters in Wikipedia. For stuff like that, it makes more sense to have a private wiki for the game and detail it's mythos there...
