Can I make a Wikipedia article about BleepingComputer? It might be similar to Wikipedia articles for websites.

Does "me" refer to Grinler?

It would be published in Wikipedia, so I'll post a link to it here if the article doesn't get deleted after a while.

I received a "go ahead" from Grinler. Now I have to thinkabout the content. This seems to be a good intro:

Bleeping Computer is a computer help site founded by Lawrence Abrams in 2004. All services to the public are free, including malware and rootkit cleanup of infected computers and removal instructions on rogue anti-spyware programs.


What else should I add?

Use this as an example, to start a template: Internet forum

Thanks, Animal. :thumbsup:

But what else should I write?

Found some info:

http://www.aboutus.org/BleepingComputer.com

I just need to turn it into an encyclopedia article.

Looking forward to seeing it, Lloyd.

It's a great idea.

I haven't released the article yet, and it's still under construction. I'll include the site logo and screenshot later because it's illegal in Wikipedia to post copyrighted images in user pages.

Feel free to edit anything.
