Ach! Don't remind me. Big laundry day yesterday, so lots of ironing to be done today.

Now back to ignoring this thread.

Re: Help wanted. Wikipedia troll needs discipline...

The most disturbing part about it is that the guy who made the final decision doesn't seem to have read any of the arguments. It was all a policy/rule dropping contest, that was the only thing that mattered, no matter how loose the grounds.

Re: PPOT flooded

No! What an absolute bummer! I hope this won't effect the planned 10'th anniversary gig?

Flooding is such an effective cause of damage. :|

Re: Help wanted. Wikipedia troll needs discipline...

After reading this:

I've come to realize that the Wikipedia I once knew and thought the world of no longer exists.

Re: Help wanted. Wikipedia troll needs discipline...

I have actually given up hope. Now they claim we're trying to mask lack of notability by adding the new references.

It's just a f*cking farce. I don't understand why they even pretend to give us a chance here.

Argh! I couldn't help making another comment. But then again "rabid" is just a nasty way of saying "passionate".

I think we've done what we can. No we can only press PRAY on tape, and hope the deciding editor is a reasonable person.

Hey! Where's that drum roll smiley gone when you need it?

I shall give it a read and see to it that it gets put you use in improving the article (or would that be canvassing, andy?).

Re: Help wanted. Wikipedia troll needs discipline...

Finally, Retro Gamer Issue 9, page 72. Almost a half page recap of PPOT's concert at BIT live 2004. Page 73 has two pictures of PRESS PLAY ON TAPE's concert. Therefore, this is not only a mere mention, but a almost a full review of the concert. Cheers. Who wrote it, and which year was it published?...

Re: Help wanted. Wikipedia troll needs discipline...

Well I've said my bit on it now, and will bow out of the discussion. There's no point in debating it further, the only thing we can do is keep adding citations. But seeing as it's this kind of activity I'm sponsering, I've definitely made my last Wikipedia donation. This whole thing has been a real ...

Re: Help wanted. Wikipedia troll needs discipline...

While I do think there needs to be verification and quality control on Wikipedia, the kind of behaviour displayed ruins it. We have a Swedish word for it, regelryttare (literally "rule rider"), when you're unable to make any distinction. And there should be different levels of verification needed. I...

Re: Help wanted. Wikipedia troll needs discipline...

Had a quick look through my magazine collection, and so far I've found PPOT in the Swedish magazine Super PLAY #125, page 55. I know there are some stuff about them in Retro Gamer mags as well, but haven't had time to look through them. Then again it doesn't seem to matter. What ever citation is thr...
