I was using Wikipedia to look something up and decided to have a look to say what it said about this site.

Was expecting some sort of humourous, yet informative, blurb ... lo & behold, there was nothing. Nadda. Zip.

Going with the theme oft found in these forums, perhaps it is a conspiracy thought up & run by the oil 'big 4', ISPs and the telecommunication companies who are out to get us ! Those dirty scoundrels, all are reprobates & curs.  Information being power, its how they keep us in their power ... I feel a Hikoi coming on.

Perhaps some Uber Geek out there would like to correct this horrible oversight. I'd write it myself but it would be filled with more lies than teen boy on a date and less facts than an opposition politician 5 months out from an election.

Wikipedia are not a popular bunch.
I seem to remember in a blog, was it yours freitasm?, where someone created a topic about a tech even in NZ and they deleted it.
They said it was not relevant to the community? And yet everyone NEEDS to know about blanket man?!?!?!?!?

Ross, you are correct.

Yes, I remember seeing it on wikipedia only to be struck down. When doing a google, there is a fair bit of criticism on the politics, editors, and policies - however it is their site, so they can really do whatever they like. Just be aware of it when using their site.

Still, whatever tickles the editors fancy!

I think they also mention that there was too much commercial content? in the site.

I think wiki should change it's views and the geekzone resourse is really starting to mature.

If you go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geekzone there is a link to add a request for it,  but he seems to head no place.
