Doesn't have a definition/ entry for The Shroomery.
Respectfully request an entry submitted to Wikipedia.
The more places The Shroomery is viewed, the better.

I thought I remembered a shroomery entry in Wikipedia.

So I re-searched Wikipedia for The Shroomery.
The Shroomerys' article/entry is being considered for deletion.

Lame.

There's tons of articles for Goatse and Tubgirl, which are both websites.

No they aren't, they're images. If the article is unbiased and informative enough, then it won't be deleted.

Why would you "request an entry" on wikipedia? It's a wiki, you edit it yourself. If you want an entry, write one.

I just read the Shroomery entry there, and it really isn't that informative, and it DOES read like an ad for the site. If you think there's some pertinant information that should be included in the article, add it in yourself, and if you don't think it should be deleted, then go into the relevant discussion and give your opinion as to WHY it shouldn't be deleted.

The whole point of a wiki is to do it yourself, so do it.

No, they're sites. Goatse.cx and Tubgirl.com

I think Goatse it no longer active though. They have a whole entry for various shock websites.

Yeah, they're websites, with well known pictures. The images were being passed around on the web long before they had sites. Goatse.cx has been down for years.

And they do have entries about websites... as long as they aren't just big ads, which is exactly what the Shroomery entry looked like.

My wiki may not reflect the views of the Admins.
It would seem fitting for someone directly involved in the maintenance and development of The Shroomery to do it, so everyone can hear it directly from the source.

It wouldn't really be fitting for the admins to write their own entry... that kind of defeats the idea of objectivity.

Them not writing an entry may defeat accuracy.

Why don't you just write one, Oregon, and then PM it to a couple of admins or post it here and see if it's satisfactory.

If you guys look at the article's entry on the Votes for Deletion page, you'll see the main concern is that the text is too short and it's not informative. If you'd like to see the article remain on Wikipedia, I recommend you take some time to clean it up and expand its scope, then post about your changes on the Votes for Deletion. I don't think the admins should get involved in this, we already have plenty of inbound links and it would just seem too much like shameless self-promotion. However I certainly support any of our members who feel it's a valid topic!

Peace,

-Y
