    I don't know much about our fearless leader, other than it seems he's quite the history buff, and he has provided us hags a place to come as well as run DDT. And let's not forget...er um, I was gonna mention something about mentioning how he included Laer on this site, which Laer's tribute imho was done fantastically well and even though I never knew Laer, Scott's tribute to his friend made it like we all kinda "knew" Laer. I know that if someone did for me what Scott did for Laer, I would - in Scott's words as only Scott could put it - be dead chuffed. Hell, I'd be dead chuffed if Scott would do a eulogy at my funeral. He'd be spot on.

    I put in a Wiki request for "Scott Michaels" and "Dearly Departed Tour" but I don't have time to start a dedicated page right now. If someone gets a page started I will try to add to it. It's kind of a shame that there has not been a page started until now.

    What's this? No Wikipedia page for Scott? Well then.

    I was fucking around on Wikipedia just now and put Scott's name into the search, expecting to see his name pop up. Nope. Nothing.

    Well then, howzabout we build him one? It's pretty easy to do. You just sign up for an account at Wiki and start one page on him. Once it's started, we just all add different info that we know about Scott (factual, no randomness or Wiki's staff will remove it) to create a well-rounded biography including early life, career and the usual stuff you see there.

    I think Scott deserves a Wikipedia page. What do you guys think? If you agree, howzabout we build him one.

    Life goes on.

    That's fine with me, but just remember Wiki is persnickety.

    I know that but I gots a big mouth. Actually I know first had how Wiki is. Several years ago I got banned from editing because I corrected an error on The Crow or Brandon Lee page--I forget now which. I had a backup note, too, but somebody didn't want me fooling with their shit. I would never have done it, but I was new to computers and there was that handy Edit link. Silly me.

    Well, if you wanted to start a page for Scott, you could just sign up again. People never do that now, do they.

    If you don't wanna, that's cool. I just feel he deserves a page there but don't have time to get the ball rolling. Anybody who does though could start it really. And it could be a community effort.

    You're welcome, Deb. I have to figure out some of it, like posting a picture of him.

    When I searched for the page to post a link to it here so people could add to it, Wikipedia says the page doesn't exist.

    The other one got deleted because it was just a one sentence blurb. So if you'd like to get the ball rolling with more info than that, go for it. Anyone can really. And I know we've got some writers in the hag house, so any of them who want to collaborate on this effort would be especially helpful.

    Sorry about that. It was late and I thought I could get it started with a blurb and then we could go back and flesh it out. My apologies.

    I asked Scott what his middle name is (James) and told him why. He's thrilled we're making a wiki page for him. So anyone who was worried what he might think, don't be. Just follow wiki's format and the page will turn out fine.

    You guys are so nice to do that, and it's a huge complement that you guys think I deserve it.

    Truthfully though, wiki might not.

    A couple of years ago someone created a page for me, one that was well put together and covered with notes backing up the info. - Wiki removed it because it didn't fit their criteria for worthiness.

    So, I'm appreciative that you'd like to do this, be aware the wiki fairies might not approve.

    Well, let's see here:

    You're an author.

    You've been on a ton of TV shows.

    Documentaries.

    Hollywood historian.

    Owner of THE go to website for celebrity death.

    Owner of Dearly Departed Tours.

    No, you're not remotely noteworthy. Not at all.

    Basically, I think the content just needs to be thoroughly fleshed out before anything's submitted. They have an option to do that now that they didn't have a few years ago.

    Hi Scott,

    I'm the one that created the page for you, and I'm sorry that it was deleted. It was deleted in November, 2012.. I thought it was a good page, and that you should be included in Wiki. Here's the cryptic dialogue, they even added..."Possibly Fancruft also, the creator appears to be a member of the article subject's web forum [1]--Theda 17:32, 12 November 2012 (UTC)"...

    Isn't anyone that writes a wiki article for someone to some extent a fan..

    Your submission at Articles for creation


    Scott Michaels, which you submitted to Articles for creation, has been created.


    Thank you for helping Wikipedia! Chzz 10:54, 22 January 2011 (UTC)

    Maybe someone woke up on the wrong side of the bed that day because wiki is supposed to be created by and for everyone. It's their organization's mission statement in fact. The high muckymucks want it that way too because it's the best way to get the widest variety of information and verification of sources.

    So maybe get together with Cindy, who's working on the new one and flesh it out as much as possible before posting. The editors with bedhead should leave you alone then.
