Generally more of a lurker

Postby Dirty Tleilaxu » 25 May 2012 04:05

Generally more of a lurker than a poster. Probably should have posted here before posting in the general thread. :oops:

This is what I posted first: http://www.jacurutu.com/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=3268

Anyways, my primary purpose for joining the board was to see if someone could do something about the wikipedia articles on BH and KJA. I've tried editing on wikipedia a couple of times, and have had trouble dealing with the rules and politics.

Welcome. I think the Battle of Wikipedia was lost long ago.

If someone could reference some articles about what the hacks have really done I think there's more of a chance that the edits would stick.

Welcome :)

To edit wikipedia you need notable sources to back up what you are adding... the problem is that notable sources have better things to do than write in-depth critiques of such an obviously sub-standard genre hack. :P

Maybe one day far off there will be critical reviews of KJA 'works' BECAUSE they're so notably bad? :P
