Help us get bbPress reinstated on Wikipedia!
We need your help to get the bbPress page reinstated on Wikipedia!
Sadly, the bbPress page was deleted last August:
The reasons given for the deletion included this: “Fails WP:RS as sources are self published.”
The “WP:RS” notation is short for “WikiPedia:Reliable Sources”: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:RS
“Wikipedia articles should rely primarily on reliable, third-party, published sources (although reliable self-published sources are allowable in some situations – see below). Reliable sources are credible published materials with a reliable publication process; their authors are generally regarded as trustworthy or authoritative in relation to the subject at hand. How reliable a source is depends on context. As a rule of thumb, the more people engaged in checking facts, analyzing legal issues, and scrutinizing the writing, the more reliable the publication.”
In other words, most of the references cited were hosted on bbpress.org:
I’d like to recreate the bbPress page on WikiPedia, but this time with a bunch of “reliable, third-party, published sources”. I did a bunch of Googling though, and most of the mentions of bbPress were on blogs.
Has anyone seen reviews or mentions of bbPress in non-blog sources? If so, please post a link here… thanks!
