Contesting speedy delete[edit]

I intend to add more sources and establish the notability of this article; as you see this page is just a stub. I'll add more to it when I go home tonight. --Aeon17x (talk) 07:53, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

Please supply one reference in a reliable 3rd party source to show some evidence of notability. Best to look at Wikipedia:Your first article#Gathering references. Since you have placed a hangon on the page I hope that admins will give you some time to work. I could remove the delete request, but some one may just re add it later. --triwbe (talk) 07:58, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

Launch Date[edit]

I have a vague memory of reading something about Plurk being launched on 12th May. Can anyone find a source to confirm this? --Rammi (talk) 17:54, 31 July 2008

Well, here's the blog entry of the lead developer: http://amix.dk/blog/viewEntry/19320 --seav (talk) 07:29, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

Earlier versions[edit]

I created an earlier version of this article on June 7 (I think) and that version was deleted on July 10 for notability concerns (despite the presence of 2 reliable sources as references) without so much as an AfD. (See the log.) I suggest to probably wait a while for Plurk to get more coverage before contributing to the article again so that it's more deletion-proof. --seav (talk) 09:33, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

I also saw that, too. Unfortunately the older copy is not in Google cache anymore, so I wasn't able to start from where you left off and had to write a new article from scratch. Anyway, let's work on this one and see where we can take it. --Aeon17x (talk) 05:30, 24 July 2008 (UTC)

The Microsoft Controversy[edit]

Some coverage of the Plurk/Microsoft code copying allegations has been added to the Reception section. I feel a separate section would be better for this, as it is quite big news. Any views? Hermes11111 (talk) 21:25, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

Indeed, it might be more suitable if it is placed on a separate section. We might as well consider (and maybe merge) the MSN Juku section at MSN China. kazu (talk) 15:13, 19 December 2009 (UTC)
