Hey there. I sent you a message in-game regarding this, but I guess you must not have seen it.

In a nutshell, I have been removing the November 11th entry because on the History of Loathing pages, we only include updates from these two pages.

Any other entries are "uncited" because they lack a source and can't be confirmed in-game. And on the wiki, we generally want to avoid including uncited content, with the exception of content that has been removed from the game, which is retained for historical purposes. --Oneforfortytwo (talk) 23:36, 16 June 2014 (UTC)

I still don't get it. That change to the community page happened. I remember the text of the message from when it showed up in my chat pane. And "uncited" is still nonsensical to me, considering that KolWiki doesn't use citations in the first place. I'd guess that at least half of the pages here have content that lacks a source and can't be confirmed in-game; combat frequency, drop rates, etc.
I have no idea why it's so important that the fact that a podcast question submission form was added to the game in 2013 be stricken from the history pages, but considering the fact that you are able to lock the page to prevent me from reverting the deletion, I suppose it's a moot point. --Vorzer (talk) 00:44, 17 June 2014 (UTC)
I am kind of annoyed that it got pulled as well. It was definitely there and definitely came through the system messages (and was in the Announcements section). I went back through their twitter feed and it was gone from there too. I blame CDM.

EDIT: Looking back through the history of the page, the entry was made on november 12th right after it happened. If you want to give an asterisk on that entry that is fine. But I have never seen the wiki remove historical content simply because it can no longer be verified. That is why we have those special tag-boxes at the top about it. --Plater (t|c) 01:42, 17 June 2014 (UTC)

Just want to add to this discussion I've filed a bug report to Gemelli about it, and Gem is apparently going to ask the admins about it. — Cool12309 (talk) 04:21, 17 June 2014 (UTC)
