What sort of things do we want to see on this page? Urban legends? Server war gossip. Or just plain old hoary specifications.--ZincBelief 15:51, 20 August 2007 (UTC)

Well, considering the fact that we need verifiable content does but a crimp on things. Taemyr 16:30, 20 August 2007 (UTC)
I'm having trouble thinking what to add myself, KGS+ could be mentioned, but that does stray into the whole advertising field.--ZincBelief 14:00, 21 August 2007 (UTC)

One of the largest Go servers?[edit]

"It is one of the largest Go servers in the world." This is doubtful. When I last checked, there were Chinese servers, Ourgame, Eweiqi, and Sinago, and maybe others, with around 10,000 Go players connected. It is likely that these numbers have increased since.

I have removed the statement. It's possibly that it should say to non-asians. Or something like that, but either statement requires sourcing. Taemyr (talk) 05:17, 7 January 2011 (UTC)
Verifiable sources do not need sourcing. This is also subject specific common knowledge. Simply log onto the server and see the populations to assess the claim. KGS, IGS and WBaduk are the largest Go servers which could lay some claim to being English Language. --ZincBelief (talk) 13:58, 7 January 2011 (UTC)
KGS has been shrinking. If its size as one of the largest go servers catering to non-asians is to be mentioned, it would have to be in the past tense. And that would require sourcing. SlowJog (talk) 02:16, 1 May 2015 (UTC)
