Countdown before somebody takes this down for lack of relevancy x.x (although I wish it would stay up, since Omni played a large role in Nspire hacking and reviving the calc community in 2010-11, not to mention nDoom and Portal Prelude. Although calc programming is usually considered as irrelevant by wikipedia users, Omni creations were featured several times on popular tech blogs before.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Also the key is to be well-written and not remain a stub for too long or else someone will take it down under the speedy deletion policies. This one seems well-written and conforms to every Wikipedia policies and guidelines. You might want to add a few links to this article on other pages such as TI-84 Plus series, TI-83 series (where Omnimaga is mentioned) and Cemetech (you can always put a link in a See also section).

Oh ok, I thought the requirements were the same about relevancy (basically, no site involving a very niche hobby like calcs, unless of course a somewhat popular TI game had commercial success in any way).

The introductory paragraph on Wikipedia seems kind of informal, but overall the page is a good start. Follow something similar to the Cemetech page article and it should be fine.

Btw, the article was flagged as not having reliable sources (IIRC it has to be non-Omni sources such as Engadget and GamesRadar. For example, for Reuben Quest series and The Reign of Legends 3 here's this: http://www.gamesradar.com/the-best-ti-83-rpgs-ever/ ) so it might be wise to add some. It might also be wise to include http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calculator_gaming#Calculator_games link somewhere in the article.

Good to hear. Hopefully the source links will be relevant enough. Has anyone added the ROL3/Reuben Gamesradar article yet? I know the download links are broken due to the Omni upgrade, but they redirect to the board index and there is a download link at the top so it should be fine.

Ok thanks. That was one of the very few instances where BASIC games got featured on such big blog. 5 RPGs got featured in one article. The only other game of mine to do so was xLIB xLIB Revolution in 2005, but that isn't as notable since it's just a button mashing game with fancy animations.
