vanilla on wikipedia

edited November 2010 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8

I just noticed that vanilla is not mentioned in wikipedia.
Has someone of you experiences with wikipedia and would like to promote vanilla on wikipedia?

This could be a start point

    They've deleted it twice now because Wikipedia is run by a bunch of bureaucratic jerks that don't consider TechCrunch or Business Week as legitimate sources to determine relevance. I've given up for now.

    so they don't belief that vanilla is worth getting an article in wikipedia?
    Vanilla is listed in the forum compare lists already... hm.
    that sucks

    I say protest; whenever the wikipedia elite decide vanilla is worthy we should issue take-down notices off the site.

    I've been battling with them for 10 years with my own LAN group in Australia.

    There's already a deleted version floating around, which means they're just going to delete yours as well.
