I have taken the liberty of making Forgotten Hope its own Wikipedia page. I hope some of you will edit it so that it looks sharper!

It's been only up for 11 minutes and is already up for deletion.
Bummer...

It looks a bit too much like an advertisement, not an encyclopaedia entry.

Just give up, those bloody talibans deleted the entries about FH and FH2 time ago, with their absurd arguments against mods. The moron who deleted them was an administrator wich main article in the wikipedia was a wall of text about a creepy country-music band, only known by the mothers and girlfriends of the musicians, but hey, FH had not interest so kaboom

"Non-notable add-on for computer game", can it be more infuriating?

Don't take liberties with things that aren't yours.

As far as I know, Wikipedia will not allow an FH2 article to stay alive because it has never been in a non-internet publication.  At least, I think that was reason last time.  There have been a few attempts to get an FH2 Wiki article but all are killed eventually.

Has FH2 won any awards or been in any magazines or anything of the sort?  If we can get verifiable citations and make those internal wiki links to every important term in the article, it'll give it better staying power.  Check out the Project Reality wiki article.  The FH2 one should look similar to that.  Definitely not a copy paste of the "About FH2" tab on the main site.

Again, don't take liberties with something that's not yours.  If the Devs wanted a Wikipedia article about FH2, they would make it themselves.

There is a quite extensive entry on PR though... So they can stuff their absurd arguments up their A...

Ionizer, FH1 and FH2 had been featured in printed magazines, internet websites, even TV shows and fared well in the last moddb contests, back then we informed to them about it with zero success.

I agree with you that a wikipedia article needs some thought and work, that's true

I deleted the "Deletion" tag. Now: EVERYONE SIGN UP FOR WIKIPEDIA!! SEND A ROYAL STORM OF B|OBJECTION AGAINST WIKIPEDIA FOR THIS INJUSTICE ON INCOMPREHENSIBLE SCALES!!
The Decision to keep or delete will be opened...now.

To vote to keep it, Edit the page, and near the end, write in bold 'Keep' and in regular font, say reasons why.
I will be opening verbal discussions with the admin of Wikipedia.
