Bringing Back the BYOND Wikipedia Article in Off Topic
Those articles are about NEStalgia, not BYOND. They're not going to give you any ammo against the Wikipedia deletionists, unfortunately.
A mention of BYOND in passing is not going to be enough to cover WP:N. We tried this before, particularly with Richard Bartle's quote.
The Wikipedia notability page says that independent coverage or recognition of a subject must not be a direct result of promotional activity.
Our best bet is to start a NEStalgia article to start building interest.
NEStalgia was discovered, not promoted.
Wikipedia sure has a stick up their ass. Aren't notability and popularity fairly synonymous? Or do you have to be a Hahhhvad-educated douche to decide if something is worthy of listing? BYOND/DM may not be popular compared to some things but it has had a heck of a lot more users than half of the notable programming languages.

I'm way too tired to deal with you Magic Man.
I sent out 8 short emails early Wednesday morning while I was sitting at my computer in my pajamas. From that amount of effort, I'm either the most brilliant "marketing" genius that has ever lived, or the concept of NEStalgia simply caught the interest of lots of people and spread on its own.
Take your pick, I'm going to bed. Probably should have done so two hours ago.
