Some one might want to mention that it is "Stephen Glicker" not "Steven Glicker" (with the ph).

Great! So far it's a tie of deletes and Undeletes. Keep on voting for undelete guys! (well, I mean one vote per person but you get the idea)

Edit: Untied, Thank you syphonbyte, whereever you may be.  ;)

We only need 4 more votes to get a 3/4ths majority. If you haven't voted yet do so quickly!

Who is the asshat that is so determined to have this article stay in deletion anyway?


I mean, there are so many other articles that are more appropriate for deletion than this one.

Remember that often in a deletion vote, it doesn't look good for one side to pull out a lot of new members on wiki. Also, numbers don't always matter. Either way, those who support restoration are making very valid points compared to those voting for deletion.

Someone posted that I had never contributed before under my post but I have been registered there for a year and have made contributions before!


Its just that the article got deleted so it deleted my contributions too!

Then Why does it still feel like we're losing?  :(

I don't think anyone is truly out to get us on this, but Splash (A moderator there) seems to more more then determined to try to keep us from claiming noteabillity by completely ignoring the evidance we put forth.

Come on people, they've got it back to a tie, We need more votes, please! PLEASE! (If you haven't voted yet please do so. and Try to add a constructive comment about it's noteabillity.)

Well, not sure what this means but someone just emailed me with this:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stephen_Glicker

I guess I might end up in there one way or another! Very strange all this attention on me.

Wow, you're modest. You only have the biggest Spore Forum, 2 interviews with WW, WW as a member on your forum, and to top it off, a great podcast.

Since he posted the company does that mean I can finally use it (The Fact you started that company) for the undeletion thing? It would really help my case Not too long from now mods will see that and and realize the article is still up for undeletion, and that'll be promptly deleted, really hurting my case

Not to mention that if the person who made that IP address is among the votes being cast, it could really be bad.

Spizzma? I think he has an account here, but he never voted so he's been unaware of it. still it will surface and unless we can use his company's name in the argument (Like it says in the article) we cannot get anyone to change their votes. Have we your permission steve?

Edit: What the heckuba? You've had it listed on this site the whole time in the about you section?! I thought there was some whole thing and... well Thank goodness. Now I can finally mention it.

Is that just a case of good timing?

It seems like only a week ago that we couldn't tell any one.



Maybe I am wrong. It has happened once before...

It is very complex. It wasn't that I couldn't talk about it, but I just didn't want to.

Long story short, after you sell a company there is a time afterwards where there are certain things you can't talk about for a period of time. And just to make things easier I just didn't talk about the topic at all. But now the time has expired and I can talk about it if I wish. So it's not that I couldn't talk about it at all in the past, but it was just easier not to promote discussion on this topic, that's all really.

I think we lost this round to be honest. Maybe next year or something. Who knows.

I just hope I didn't make a bad first impression.

They need to read his latest new thing on the main page.


If Will Wright representing the Forum and "a continental breakfast with Peter Moore, Chris Satchell, and Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb himself" does not denote some level of renown than nothing does.

maybe:
"a continental breakfast with Peter Moore, Chris Satchell, Peter Jackson, Albert Einstein, Buddy Holly, the headless ghost of Henry VIII, James  and Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb himself"

I'd try and do something to help but seeing I haven't done any editing it seems my opinion wont matter much if at all.

Hm, just came across this...probably won't last long. Doesn't do justice to the site anyway. But still, It's gone about 5 days without anyone saying anything by looking at the history.

If you can, report it. That way you can build a big reputation of being a steadfast supporter of the rules. And next year, when they bring up notability, you can say how many ime Glicker just popped up on the radar. I also reccomend shutting this topic down. Should they see it, it could hurt your arguements for next year. Also, everyone who voted already, keeping contributing whenever you can. So they can't cite "they're all new members and therefore their opinions mean less than ours."
