    I take it additional "Citations" (verifications) are required to prevent this deletion.

    So, would a reference to MorphOS Library where Ambient is referenced be suitable or does it require something more specific to prevent these Wikipedia pages of Ambient from being removed permanently? :-)

    It's a little tricky it seems to me to "cite" such information for a system like ours that in effect holds a fragile place in the digital world! 8-)

    Wikipedia is terrible. It calls itself a wiki - which it is not, as a wiki is supposed to be a community effort - but it will continuously dream up excuses about how it can delete data. There's a continuous discussion about its use of bad news sources and critics.

    Worst of all is its "notability", which can have an article deleted despite having good references and others stay online if it has a single reference in trash like Buzzfeed or Vice.

    Don't give them a cent and hopefully they'll go bankrupt and die. And then a real wiki will replace it.

    @KennyR
    Well, Wikipedia is unique. A short story: My boss wanted his own Wikipedia article and the secretary created an account. After some days the article was deleted because of missing relevance.
    Do you know any edit war of MorphOS wiki? Not all wikis can be compared.

    Who is prepared to add these links and delete the banner threatening deletion, and has an account on Wikipedia to make these changes to the Ambient page? :-?

    As it would be a shame to lose the "visibility" of Ambient, and its association with MorphOS, in a fairly public online digital web resource. 8-)
