2000AD Online's claim to Wikipedia fame
« on: 15 January, 2007, 02:39:31 pm »
2000AD Online is one of the top 500 websites (domains) by number of links from Wikipedia..

I'd imagine a fair few of those links are to the character/droid profile pages.

Cheers,

336th most-linked... less than 100 behind DC.  Not bad!

That's 336 links, not 336th. The actual position is 213th. Marvel is 188th with 367 links. By DC, do you mean www.dcuguide.com which is 328th with 252 links?

Pretty much all of the 2000ad articles are by the same people, and they pretty consistantly put in a link to the profile page. I don't think that can be compared to the SC or marvel pagessiner their by a wider range of people who tend to use a wider range of references.

Also the 2000ad articles have had a certain degree of inflation lately, with people going out of their way to create as many articles as possible, regardless of if a subject is best handled in another article or not.

In most cases merge is more appropriate than a delete, though if there as  some kind of 2000ad wiki out there I would strongly urge a transwiki for a lot of those articles.
