1. The content itself has been the subject of multiple non-trivial published works whose source is independent of the site itself. This criterion includes reliable published works in all forms, such as newspaper and magazine articles, books, television documentaries, websites, and published reports by consumer watchdog organizations except for the following:
* Media re-prints of press releases and advertising for the content or site.
* Trivial coverage, such as (1) newspaper articles that simply report the Internet address, (2) newspaper articles that simply report the times at which such content is updated or made available, (3) a brief summary of the nature of the content or the publication of Internet addresses and site or (4) content descriptions in Internet directories or online stores.
2. The website or content has won a well-known and independent award from either a publication or organization.
3. The content is distributed via a medium which is both respected and independent of the creators, either through an online newspaper or magazine, an online publisher, or an online broadcaster; except for trivial distribution including content being hosted on sites without editorial oversight (such as YouTube, MySpace, Newgrounds, personal blogs, etc.).

Again. That is weird. Wikipedia is supposed to have everything. Another possible explanation is that whoever was making the pages that got deleted was not making satisfactory pages? Like, maybe all the info was wrong so they got rid of the entire entry? Seems crazy that this would happen multiple times but I am trying to think of at least one logical, non-conspiratorial explanation

Yeah, I agree. It is the only non-conspiratorial explanation that I can think of, so it worries me that something more is going on...
I think that you are right though... we should try to make a page. See what happens. Can you do it and tell us what happens?
I never mentioned Anonymous. I believe it was that someone edited all of the pages with some sort of derogatory remark in a very very short time over and over crashing it? If not then some EDiots took credit for it anyway. Just saying.

anonymous has very little involvement on ATS. TinWiki was attacked by somebody other then anon, and I can say that because I never once saw a proposed attack by anon, and I'm in on the loop enough to know when one occurs.

Wikipedia is not supposed to be an advertising platform. This website has not done anything groundbreaking or notable in the eyes of the world and as such has no place for it in Wikipedia.
Giantbomb has influence over the gaming industry which is how it gets to stay. Questionable Content is a work of creative fiction, one that has won multiple awards which is how it gets in.
