We Didn't Start The Fire[edit]


Ladies and gentlemen, the Flaming Joel-wiki celebrates events in our collective consciousness as highlighted by the Übermuse Billy Joel in his great song We Didn't Start the Fire...

This award, with a nice pic modified by Debivort is awarded to anyone instrumental in getting any of the below articles linked to FA status. Billy Joel is clearly a more important judge of vital articles than any ol' vital article list. Note that some flexibility and imagination may allow me to give it to similar articles if we can find a good reason to do so :)

Those prescient enough to develop one which is already an FA (articles noted below), will gain a shiny wiki very soon. Let me know what y'all think and we're off and running... Be bold to modify this or talk on talk page. Come up with ideas for other FAs etc. Note that some words link to two or more articles.

PS: Getting either the songwriter or song to FA status is worth a Flaming Joel-wiki too....

PPS: Feel free to place one on the page of any contributor who worked to get any of the articles already FA below or I'll get onto it tomorrow.
