Forum directories and rankings[edit]

My contribution at 20:50, 28 July 2008, was reverted – [1]. I think many people can come to Wikipedia, at the Internet forum article, trying to find help when they search for a forum that they need. So I think my contribution was very usefull and not in violation of any of Wikipedia's politics. If it's considered that the way I presented the information is not good, I am nicely asking for advice for how to make it better. I think the reader should be helped to see not only what a forum is, but also what forums exist out there. thanks Ark25 (talk) 12:24, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

It's "policies". The one you are refering to is WP:NOT, and wikipedia is not a collection of links elsewhere, it is not a directory. It would be acceptable to link to DMOZ, but what you added appeared to be spam. Moreover, such things belong in the "External links" section, per WP:MoS. ffm 13:26, 31 July 2008 (UTC)
I have added it to the external links section, thanks for advice. Ark25 (talk) 14:02, 31 July 2008 (UTC)
I will vote here for directories, let create another article of Wikipedia about directories of Forums, to collect most famous directories. I come here, after a 20 years of internet surfing, I'm not interesting in definitions and engines, I'm interesting in directories, in forums that really cool. 93.81.39.98 (talk) 09:15, 29 March 2014 (UTC)

How does that have any relation to a Internet forum? Dudel250 (talk) 03:25, 27 March 2014 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 12 June 2015[edit]

I believe it relevant to add that "Sock Puppeting" is a somewhat retired term, and that it has been replaced with the derogatory term "Samefagging." I also view that the term "Fag-" should be added as saying what an odd culture "lurks" on the internet, the word "fag" being replaced from derogatory to a generalized title.
