:rolmao: I guess I could go down as the inventor of Tater tots. And you could contribute.
Let’s see what I would put on for me
Name, birthday, birthplace.
AKA Namahottie. Tends to be very vocal about racial issues concerning African Americans. Has travelled to several coutries in search of her true love Takeshi Kaneshiro but eventually ended up teaching English to children in Taiwan, Japan, and America. Posts online more than she should. Has a chocolate half breed labrador(sp) who is always in her face for attention. Her brief 15 mintues of fame was working on a high profile Hong Kong, to which she has been trying to do again for over 10 years. Loves to cook and laugh about the silly shit in life. Quite a few people think she’s a liberal but actually she believes in strict displine over children and other things in society. She’s old school.
She ran a blog for 10 secs that now recieves spam. She got her B.A. in film and never made one of her own, unless you count the homework ones.
Wishes to live on a ranch in Montana one day, so she can stare at the stars, ride horses, and think in peace.
Quite rightly too. I understand the particular article that Ironlady is upset about (on Tonally Orthographic Pinyin), but Wikipedia has to have notability criteria otherwise it would just turn into myspace. I support TOP being given an article, but the rules of the site state that in order to be “notable” TOP must be referenced elsewhere. If we can come up with news clips, blog noise and other mentions of the system to support it, then we can argue against such an article being taken down.
Putting up articles about non-notable people kind of goes against the point of having an encyclopedia, and so I find it understandable that people take them down. As an experiment Nama - try putting up an article about yourself and see how long it lasts (I promise not to touch it!).
On the other hand, I’ve only met Nama the once and don’t know anything about her really. If you are an author of reknown, a downhill skiing champion or have some other claim to fame that I don’t know about (and can back it up), then your article would stay up.
