Picture[edit]

If anybody could upload a better, free-license image of the Hash Bash, please add it. The current one is a mobile phone image that was edited to look better, but it can only look so good. Thanks! --Daisuke0kun 15:11, 9 April 2006 (UTC)

I dunno, the blurry image seems appropriate 83.70.30.82 21:30, 12 June 2006 (UTC)
Maybe to make an artistic commentary, but since this is an encyclopedia, a better picture would probably be preferable.Crito2161 22:46, 22 June 2006 (UTC)
Next year I'll get a much better photo, but that'll (understandably) be a while. Until then though, could anybody that knows someone who got a photo convince them to allow it to be shown here or release it under a wiki-compatible license? That would be wonderful.Daisuke0kun 06:38, 16 October 2006 (UTC)

I have updated the photo - still, if anybody sees another free-licensed image that would be better for this page, go ahead and replace the current one. 68.41.55.97 15:29, 8 April 2007 (UTC)

Information from "BBC Article"[edit]

I deleted the excerpts which make up the second half of the page. For one, I don't think that simply copying and pasting sections like this is appropriate for Wikipedia. For another, the information is written in a manner that violates WP:NPOV. Most importantly, if one clicks on the link, it is not in fact from an actually article from BBC but from H2G2, an encyclopedic wiki. Therefore, it is definitely not a viable source for the article (see WP:RS#Bulletin_boards.2C_wikis_and_posts_to_Usenet). Crito2161 22:46, 22 June 2006 (UTC)

Notable outside Ann Arbor[edit]

Hash Bash is notable outside Ann Arbor so the current notice of deletion because it is notable only in Ann Arbor is not valid. I arrived in US in 2003 and I had heard about the event before coming here. Even considering that millions of UM alumni and families are familiar with the event (with fond memories I imagine) and are distributed across the world makes this a very notable and well known event. I strongly oppose any move to delete the article.

Simply because it occurs in A2 is not suitable grounds for deletion. Other events, notably the Mummers Parade in Philly, have articles. If the problem is content-based, or needs more content, that's fine. But simply because it is a locality-based page is not suitable grounds for deletion.

The article has been nominated for deletion because it is not notable outside Ann Arbor. However, the event is notable outside Ann Arbor, and is of broader historical/cultural interest for several reasons, including: A.) its catalyzing role in broader battles over marijuana legalization in left-leaning U.S. college towns in the early 1970s (see Marijuana laws in Ann Arbor, Michigan); and B.) its creation as part of the widely noted struggle to free poet/activist John Sinclair from prison, which drew support from a number of nationally noted figures including John Lennon and Bobby Seale. If this is a vote for deletion, I vote to keep the article (although it could use quite substantial improvements as of 17 Dec. 2006). Ropcat 06:36, 17 December 2006 (UTC)
You might wish to put this on the afd discussion page.TheRingess 07:06, 17 December 2006 (UTC)
