Thread Name: BS: Wikipediaists?
Subject: RE: BS: Wikipediaists?
I have contributed to Wikiedia once or twice. There is a ban on blatant advertising, but I do think that the articles I created (for example, on the man who inspired the third verse of Sultans of Swing and a band who should have had a hit alongside Pink Floyd's Arnold Layne but were banned from the airwaves by the BBC), are historically noteworthy.
It is interesting to chase links from one story. Quite how I started with Epiphone and ended up at the Mauryan Empire would take too long to explain all the intermediate steps.
