Jordan Maxwell, one of the most productive pioneers and researchers on many topics of interest to ATS members, doesn't have a wikipedia entry. And wikipedia won't allow anyone to create one! While every tween singer with one song can have a page, the information spout which is wikipedia doesn't give the public either a chance to find a summary of Maxwell, his work, and/or links to his own papers, recordings or research or to create such an article.

I haven't asked a wikpedia admin about this as yet, and decided to bring it here first. Has anyone found a similar case, or have any guesses as to why a Maxwell page cannot be created? And if I or someone else does contact their admins, can we tell them that there are many compenent writers and researchers from ATS who are ready and willing to write and polish a Jordan Maxwell page (those of us who have wikipedia accounts)? And maybe someone who has more contact with their admins can broach the subject to them. Thanks.

Well, i agree that there should be a Jordan Maxwell page and i am surprised that there isn't.

I will go and find out.

Thanks for bringing this to ATS member attention.

You're very welcome, I look forward to hearing what you find out. I haven't run into this before at wikipedia, especially regarding someone with such a long career and prominence among his peers.

Twitter is corrupt. Archaeology, education, media and just about any source of influence to the population is corrupt. It doesn't surprise me therefore that Wikipedia, Facebook and Twitter appear to be quite amazingly corrupt. I posted this thread about NATO using Twitter to fight Gaddafi.

They are all steps towards total globalism.

Thanks for exposing this.

I read your post before you took it down, and you gave some good information. Thanks.

Strange that it is deleted after the page is created.


I found something interesting, when i enter Jordan Maxwell in Google, the auto complete offers a wiki and the first page hit is the Wikipedia entry for Zeitgeist but after a search on that page Jordan Maxwell does not appear anywhere.

Google Search Results - ''Jordan Maxwell Wiki''


hmmmmm.


Here is the Wikipedia deletion page regarding Jordan Maxwell and it gives the reasons behind the deletion -





This page has been deleted. The deletion and move log for the page are provided below for reference.

Wikipedia has a notability requirement for biographical entries, otherwise everyone on Earth would create a page about themselves, turning Wikipedia into Facebook. I have never heard of Jordan Maxwell, so I assume the Wikipedia editors haven't either.

To be honest any public figure that is known should be added to Wikipedia, it's a general database of just about anyhting and anyone (except for private citizens etc)

Here is his website -

www.jordanmaxwell.com...


The original Wiki delete reason in 2006 was because they beleived it was self serving advertising and not a general information page.

Surely they'd at least look through the work and decide whether it was beneficial to the honest education of the world. If they didn't decide that it was beneficial then we know something wrong is going down.


I'd say there probably definitely was something wrong going down. Internet censorship is becoming increasingly rampant.

That is fair enough but then you have junk like this taking up space on Wikipedia -


en.wikipedia.org...

Why are you asking me Jordan who? When you created the thread..... did i miss something?

Well, then one unexpected by-product of this thread is introducing him to some people. This guy has been researching topics relevant to this site since 1959, and much of his work apparantly goes uncredited when it is built upon by others (including major hollywood producers and writers). I'll let others more knowledgable of his contributions flesh this out a little if they feel so inclined.

And when I said "Jordan who?" it was a joke reference to you not finding his name in the Ziegiest wikipedia page.

lol. If I were Maxwell I'd be working on getting information out to the public instead of laying around posting here. Then again....

So was goldfish swallowing, phone booth stuffing and pet rocks, yet as a cultural fad they are noteworthy, hence, covered in Wikipedia. If Jordan Maxwell wants to be in Wikipedia, perhaps he can set a goldfish swallowing record or something.
