How could it be irrelevant ? I'm not sure people find console homebrew irrelevant, calc programming is the same but on calculators.

We got deleted D:
Actually, moved until we assert both notability and importance, as well as only link to outside sources. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Piguy101/Omnimaga
Long story short, link to ticalc news articles, and make a subsection about the importance of Axe.

Maybe we should just work on an article about the TI community instead? Build from there?

There used to be one, but it seems that even that wasn't considered notable enough by Wikipedia users or admins to have its own article. It has since became a sub-section of mobile games.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mobile_game#Calculator_games


Our best bet for having Omnimaga mentionned on Wikipedia is to fix the Omnimaga links at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TI-84_Plus and other calc pages so they don't look spammy (eg: Change description to "game downloads and forums")


Is linking to another wiki allowed? If so, then maybe TI-Story could be linked to somewhere.
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

Has anyone backed up the page? If not, I will do that.

yeah I know, but the description is very spammish. It has to be non-promotional and neutral.

The thing with wikia is that they keep pushing their own custom styles nobody likes plus it is over-blown with ads.
