Rosetta Code:Village Pump/Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Rosetta Code

From Rosetta Code
Rosetta Code
This is a particular discussion thread among many which consider Rosetta Code.


It is probably worth chatting here and making a collaborative decision about the "wp:Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Rosetta_Code" page just created.


re: wp:Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Rosetta_Code

Personally it would be a shame not to have wp:Rosetta_Code as RC compliment's WP perfectly by providing a spectrum of alternative programming solutions to WP's own limited code examples.

On the other hand I suspect the RC is getting to a point that "google" will often rank RC and WP equal for the same topic. Moreover not having RC on WP is no big deal as "google" knows all about RC.

The WP editor that "contributed" does not specifically look like a wp:deletionist, as a deletionist would likely wait for a "cool down" and then re "contribute" to wp:Articles_for_deletion until the page succumbs.

keep - none the less, I voted keep. (If only because RC has google foo!) - NevilleDNZ 21:50, 8 October 2012 (UTC)

Note: I have withdrawn my keep vote at Wikipedia. Ironically although Rosettacode is a growing resource I have not yet managed to find anything on the internet that rank Rosettacode as "Wikipedia Notable". I can kind of see the Wikipedia's AfD editors POV. It is a tad ironic. (But my original assessment about RC still applies)

One thing I gained from the conversations as wp:Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Rosetta_Code was the urge to do a google scholarly search for RC and found specifically mentioned in:

  • (Not to mention the numerous PhD thesis').

Nothing all solely about RC, but global and widespread RC usage. Maybe just the tip of an RC iceberg.

Should Rosettacode get reviewed in wp:Scientific America or wp:Time Magazine (or some other "Wikipedia Notable" article about RC) someone (with the time and energy) could update WP. If you know of any "Wikipedia Notable" articles in the media, do let me know. I'll pass it on.
