WPC links in Wikipedia SMAC(X) articles

63 posts in this topic

I just discovered that the SMAC and SMACX articles on Wikipedia have external links at the bottom to the CFC and 'poly SMAC forums- but nothing about us. We can't let that stand, can we? We want wiki browsers to give the most active SMAC forum on the web a a look, too, don't we?

 

Anyone up to a Wikipedia edit?

Okay, great. However, you don't appear to have gotten the SMACX article yet, Mr President.

 

BTW, I don't know if it's waiting for admin aproval or what, but although I found the edit in the history, the link's not displaying in the article yet...

BTW, you might consider dropping the "is" beginning the description and capitalizing "The", thus "The most active SMAC community on the Web."...

It seems to be displaying properly now- in the SMAC, not SMACX. entry where I see no sign of an edit.

Okay, I'm going to be sorry I did that, 'cause it's a pain when I have to re-do stuff on my next visit to a lot of places, but I did and still got the same thing -the link displayed.

I'm stumped. Petek? Draz? Y'all familiar with how Wikipedia editing works?

Share this post


Link to post

Weird too, because it says it's there in the edit.

 

Move it up and down the lines maybe?

press ctrl+F5 while on the page. You're probably loading the page from your cache and getting an old version.

 

I see the link on both the SMAC and SMAX pages.

@RMcD94: What browser are you using? I see the WePlaySMAC link both in Firefox and IE8.
