Do we have any Wikipedia gurus out there?

I think it'd be supercool to have an entry for Overkill on the Wiki, as a historical stamp of existence. I often read about other contemporary door games (LORD (Legend of the Red Dragon), TradeWars, Barren Realms Elite, et al.), in gamer magazines and BBS documentaries, but I guess I haven't pushed Overkill in that direction. Maybe it's time.

So, perhaps I can start up an article on Wikipedia and get it affirmed. It needs to be neutral, unbiased, matter-o-fact, like an encyclopedic article. Citations and notable references. (It might be difficult to find legitimized articles from publishers or magazines, but it's worth a look.) I'm not sure I can initiate it, either, being the author. I'll poke around.

Raise your claw if you have an interest.

Hey Dwarfy, thanks for the axe hail. I started a simple version on Wikipedia, and it was approved. So, now it can be modified if you have a Wikipedia basic account!

Well, that's not cool -- someone overwrite the entry somehow... ?

One of the Wikipedia rules is that members involved with the project can't contribute to the page. Extremely annoying for stuff like this since the historical accuracy is the most important part.

I found the one that was overwritten. Some guy came along and said the sources were not valid sources.
