    I tried making a very basic one a month or so ago, but wikipedia moderators shut it down because it wasn't a "significant event" or whatever and because I didn't cite my sources. Just wondering if anyone knew how to create a legitimate wikipedia entry that doesn't get immediately deleted, it would be cool to have an entry on wikipedia for the grindtime movement

    Better yet, let's make a GT wiki... where there'd be articles on battlers, battle events, etc. It'd be easier for fans to know stuff instead of needing to stalk people at events and lurk these forums all day.

    Grindtimenow.com should have a wiki, that'd be dope. They prolly wouldn't make an official one here just for the battle forum.

    Nah, a GT Wiki is a bad idea. It'd be too hard to stay neutral cos battles are debatable and some dudes have dirt on them. Plus there wouldn't be many sources to cite, and also GT battlers could just use it to dig up shit on their opponents.

    But a GT page on Wikipedia... Maybe

    Well, judged battles do have a winner and a loser. You can just cite a lot of threads on this forum tbh, like "The decision was poorly received by many fans [cite to a Poll thread here] ..." etc

    You wouldn't necessarily need "dirt," but a lot of lines have references that aren't well known, and some fans might want to look it up instead of making a thread on here or something.

    I don't think a public forum constitutes as a valid source.

    The sources you want to cite are the news articles mentioning GT events, links to the GT website, and some other respected blog sites that mention it.

    Any Grind Time Wikipedia article cannot be promotional in nature. Jumpoff had theirs deleted a while ago for that very reason.

    It might be a good idea to have a look at this.

    Now that Grindtime got mentioned in the new issue of The Source, linking to the magazine's site (an "official source" - no pun intended) should be enough to keep a GT wiki entry from getting deleted. Not that I'm gonna do it. I'm busy. Just throwin' this out there.

    I still think a GT wiki would be tight, especially for new fans who are like "wtf is an illusion zorro"
