Wikipedia Thomas Pages

Post by Diesel 11 on Tue Sep 01, 2015 2:33 pm

Wikipedia is a great place to learn from, but the Thomas pages are another story. Here we can discuss how to make it better, what we like, etc.

The strangest thing in my opinion is that S.C.Ruffey has his own page. S.C.Ruffey! Any one else think that that's weird?

What the Smelters Yard? An article on S.C. Ruffey?! It looks very out of place, even on the English Wikipedia. I think it should be a redirect, since he was only a very minor character, and thus completely contradicts the Thomas WikiProject....

Turns out the article is as old as 2005, and I never even knew it existed.

I wanted to talk about my past conflicts with the Hebrew Wikipedia over Thomas articles, but this really odd information distracted me..

He IS a character and not a miscellaneous truck though, it's not like the small china clay truck from Percy's predicament has one though, that would be weird.

I've turned it into a redirect and removed him from Template:Thomas. Let's see what'll happen.

How about we delete everything on the page but a link to the wikia?

Absolutely not. Wikipedia has nothing whatsoever to do with the Wiki, and that is just not needed.

Exactly; granted we can correct errors here and there, but no reason to do anything too drastic.

Yes. Besides, some Thomas should be on Wikipedia, as it is an online encyclopedia.
