How about adding some background information to the page? In its current form I can understand why people wonder what the fuss is all about.

How about thinking of more constructive things to do than fighting wikipedia deletionists.

Don't know what all the fuss is about, it's only Wikipedia which ain't exactly the fountain of knowledge!

Could someone please explain why all the hate against Natami?

And Natami actually exist as a prototype which should allow it on wikipedia.

Hate? If anything, I hate Wikipedia and the deletionist assholes who seem to run the site.

Jope: Totally agree with your opinion. At Amiga.org most ppl think that it should be deleted. And a disagree on that one.

Wikipedia is there for anything and everything, from the nearly machines to the failed machines.

Even if it only existed as a concept, its still valid information to be included in Wikipedia.

Should we now delete details of the Konix Multisystem because it didn't go into production?

I have never taken Wikipedia as anything other than a source of slightly useful information. But it strikes me odd at how they handle their deletion and editing process works. When they want to delete something that could be considered slightly useful and yet leave other rubbish on.

Wikipedia is run by a bunch of snobs. Who gives a shit what they're doing. If I wanted info on Natami then I would head over to the official Natami site. I definately would not go and do a search on Wikipedia. So delete it, what does it matter anyway.

Why this Wikipedia bashing? Of course you can always read the primary sources, but that does not make encyclopedias redundant. The quality of the articles at Wikipedia differs greatly (that on Natami is rubbish), but you are always welcome to improve them. I don't see the point of your criticism.

Religion is faith based on the idea of one or more gods, spirits, transcendent soul or other supernatural phenomena.

Is there evidence of a god, spirit or soul has ever existed or does exist today? I Suggest that we remove all the god, spirit and souls from the source until the fact is presented in such a way that no doubt can arise.

Just as silly as the text I just wrote, just as silly is this discussion.

Dont know what you are trying to prove.

If you dont like a article. You dont need to add it for deletion since maybe someone else thinks it is interesting.

Its like the 80 year old ppl calling the TV studio and complaining about the weather mans tie. Get over it, and move on.

Well, over and out for me on this "Lets delete things just because i dont like it".

Trying to prove that I
  1. like Wikipedia
  2. don't like unfair criticism of Wikipedia
  3. don't agree with the implications of your previous comment

The reoccurring deletion debates are conceptual flaw in Wikipedia, outweighed by its merits, and probably soon amended.
