MUSICBANTER(site)

INTRO:
MusicBanter is one of the largest music-only forum sites on the worldwide internet. Started on 12-18-2003, using Vbulletin, MusicBanter has rose up over many other forum sites. With over half a million posts there is alot going on. Today there is roughly 28,000 members, and more coming everyday from all diffrent countrys,cultures, and religions. With 28 sections in this forum, MusicBanter covers every genre of music from genral rock to hip-hop from country to french. MusicBanter also makes things "FUN" with the areas called "The Lounge" where you can just sit and talk/get to know the community of MusicBanter and talk about life/sports/current events. There is also a spot at the lower portion of the site called the "Shoutbox" were members can just type to each other, basically a little version of a chat room. There are also bigger sized chatrooms you can go to.

Rules/Faq/ect.

The rules of MusicBanter are very straight forward and easy to follow. They are posted in every section of the forum. MusicBanter is totally a non-profit, independant site. Therefore the moderators earn no monetary/material pay. MusicBanter prides itself on good manners and good internet ettiquet. This site does not put up with spam, Because being a non-profit website there are no ad's therefore they dont need any spamming of the forum with unwanted ad's.
This is not good at all. It's subjective and instead of sticking to categories, random bits of info pop up everywhere.

As an example, I would think it should go more like this :

Quote:
MusicBanter is currently the largest music internet community. It's boards are generally used for discussion on different topics in music.

History
MusicBanter was started by blabla in 200X and was run by blabla until 200X when it was bought by blibli.

Content
Musicbanter contains forums where users can read and submit album reviews as well as forums for general or genre specific discussions on music. It also has forums for discussions on software, equipment and a lounge area for non-music related topics.
The point is you should write descriptive and you should know where your info should go. Don't talk about general description, content, vbulletin versions, rules and history all in one place. Split them up and make categories.

This bit was particularly bad. If your article is no objective, it will get deleted. Write it as if you were not a member of MusicBanter, just an observer.

Thats not the original document, its just as you said a jumbled mess of info. More like a little summary. No way would I put that on wiki :/ lol but just trust me I'll try my hardest to make it good. I just need COMPLETE information on the history of music banter I already have all the other information

It doesn't actually have to be an interesting read. That's not the point of Wikipedia. If it's factual and objective, that's a good start .. We can iron out the rest from there.

I don't want to burst your bubble, but this will get deleted, not due to the fact that it is constantly edited by people, but simply because it is not 'important enough.

Another website I visit has tried to do one such as this, in jest initially, however they are always deleted under this rule.

Quote:
An article about a real person, an organization (e.g. band, club, company, etc., except schools), or web content that does not indicate why its subject is important or significant. This is distinct from verifiability and reliability of sources, and is a lower standard than notability. This criterion applies only to articles about web content and to articles about people and organizations themselves, not to articles about their books, albums, software and so on. The criterion does not apply to any article that makes any credible claim of significance or importance even if the claim is not supported by a reliable source. If the claim's credibility is unclear, you can improve the article yourself, propose deletion, or list the article at articles for deletion.
As well as

Quote:
Unambiguous advertising or promotion. Pages that exclusively promote some entity and that would need to be fundamentally rewritten to become encyclopedic. Note that simply having a company or product as its subject does not qualify an article for this criterion.
Not a bad idea, and you might get it through the system, but chances are unless it's a huge site, it will get deleted.

I agree that it's likely to get removed (then your efforts will have been for nothing, cory) and so it sort of depends on wether or not they think MB is a big enough community to think it's important.

They might think so, though.

edit :

Another thing I thought of is that you need to have sources to all your claims. In other words, you can't really just say musicbanter is the largest internet music community (like I did in my example). You need to be able to back that with a source. There's a wikipedia article on their sourcing policy that you should have a look at if you want your article to contain claims.

Music Banter, the LARGEST music site on the internet? Kind of doubt it, definitely the best though

Not "site" silly Read!

Anyways, it's an example.
