You're nobody unless you're somebody on Wikipedia

I’m surprised Bomber Blitz doesn’t exist in the Wikipedia universe and I was thinking of putting up an article. All the basic facts - founded in ??? by ???, biggest single-team fansite in Australia, a bit about the Stand By Hird and Back Our Boys campaign as well as The March etc etc.

Whaddyareckon? Continue to bask in anonymity or do you wanna BE somebody!!!

It’d be a short page, given Wikipedia insist on second-hand reporting. Would be a couple news articles and some scathing remarks on BigFooty.

We had one.

They deleted it. Fark Wikipedia and fark Carlton.

Seriously? Why would they? You’d think that a fan site would be a Wikipedia-worthy thing, like Guadeloupe, or Banana wine. I’m not going to bother if they’re just going to delete it. Did they give a reason?

By second hand reporting do you mean independent corroboration? Because a fan site would be incapable of first-hand reporting per se, given it doesn’t possess its own fingers or keyboard.

Wikipedia is not meant to be a primary source. It must refer to and be supported by external sources of info. In this case that means you can refer to the Mediawatch web site, for example, but said site tells you almost nothing about Blitz – just that a member once sent an email to a newspaper.
