For those not in the know, wikipedia (en.wikipedia.org) is an online encyclopedia, which even non users can edit. It is well known as a qualiy website, and is very up to date (popes death edited in one day.. whoa Shocked)

Anyway, two things: The current 'External Links' section on their Barney article could be expanded to include the Jihad as a 'anti barney community site'.

Second of all, the 'Jihad to Destroy Barney' should be an article, as this would help give us some more awareness (currently, we are largely unknown outside a few news groups and dead websites.). All articles must be NPOV, so we must be neutral when describing the Jihad, and include a 'Controversy' section mentioning the post 9/11 backlash and copyright lawsuits.

I am starting to work on a article for wikipedia right now, but any help would be greatly appreciated

Cheers
Patrick
PS, I will tell you if the (finished) article gets posted later

Patrick, you're not an official representative of the Jihad. Please don't ever assume we want you writing our press releases.

Don't write it.
Don't post it.

As Aris says, do under no circumstances assume that you speak for the Jihad or have any sort of permission to write press releases.

I'll repeat the one-syllable portion of this just in case you didn't get the hint:

Don't write it.
Don't post it.

Understood?

Do not do this.

First warning, last warning.

Wikipedia is actually a horrible site for that specific reason; I have no intellectual respect for it since its articles are edited by people who don't know what they're talking about as often as not. I've spent some time this year trying to convince university students to stop using it for those and other reasons. Reliability and neutrality are only what the last editor thinks they are.

The Jihad wants little or nothing to do with Wikipedia, or other similarly unreliable sites.

More to the point, you're not qualified to write such an article. I'll be blunt: you've been around here for a few months, trying to glean what you can figure out of this place through conversations with some of the members and the relatively small amount of publicly visible writing. I've been involved, directly or otherwise, with this group for longer than any other person you have seen posting on this forum. I don't have the whole story yet. You certainly don't.

So yeah. Don't. This is not a request or a negotiable suggestion.

Listen, for once. Please. Don't do anything.
