TIP to DigiFlip... :)

When making a poll choose the option to show the members names when they vote, makes it more interesting to see who voted for what... ;)

The notability policy is a complete joke, anyway. Separate pages for every episode of The Simpsons are notable, but not a single series page for Arfenhouse, the X1000 is notable because it has coverage from "reliable sources" (i.e. online tech journals whose main function is to parrot press releases) but Natami doesn't, blah blah, the list goes on...

What he is saying is that Wikipedia can, and often does, delete real articles about real Amiga products that really exist and are used by real people in the real world because "The Amiga is not notable".

Yet articles about every random fictional TV show starring fictional characters performing fictional deeds in fictional locations, are not allowed to be deleted because they are "notable for being mentioned in the mainstream media".

Any "encyclopedia" that deletes factual information but keeps fictional information is a joke.

Well put. That's the trouble with everyone having an equal voice, the idiots can get to shout out the experts. If the moderators did as they should it would work out ok most of the time, sadly, some of them are idiots too so it doesn't. Oh well, wiki article or not, it's not going to effect my purchasing, the Natami is a must have, pure and simple.

Exactly nobody is not going to buy this because of a wikipedia article.  Given wikipedia's guidelines, it should probably be deleted.  That's not a judgement on NatAmi but rather a practical response based on Wikipedia's stated goals and objectives.

This is very true. It's not at all likely to hurt the Natami project, it's just annoying.

However, I'll have to disagree with this. Wikipedia's guidelines are poorly-defined and enforced entirely at the whim of the moderators, very often spurred by someone's personal biases. (That's not to say that this was a judgement on Natami, just that that sort of thing is hardly uncommon.)

Delete: Not notable, it's one of millions of electronics projects that hasn't even been completed. Wikipedia is not a place for Amiga (or any other kind of) evangelism. Koft (talk) 21:15, 11 June 2011 (UTC)

I voted yes to keep, out of principal more than anything else.
I don't think it really matters.
Wiki isn't the font of all knowledge despite what some people would have you believe.

Assuming the Natami gets released, the word will soon get round the tech sites and such soon  enough.
