I'm just surprised we have a Page. They took it down a ton of times since most references were from mybb.com.

Yeah, it was NFD'd in April last year but kept (only one argument was made, but imho it was a good one).

Anyway, OP, you made a slight grammatical error, so I fixed it for you. Smile

On an aside, I also fixed a few errors and cited a claim. Name on Wikipedia is MrSeabody, if you want to look at revision history. Smile
Please don't PM me for support. Smile

I'll never completely understand the problem with citing MyBB.com, seeing as that's the official source for the software...

Well Wikipedia moderators doesn't obviously like and becomes a** (censored on purpose) regarding that. I've tried to contribute in past on quite a few topics too but gave up due to the same foolishness.

Because that's not what citing is meant for. That's like saying "Walmart is the best supermarket in the world [Source: Walmart]", or having a pharmaceutical company test their own drugs for effectiveness. The idea with citing is to get unbiased information on a topic, and for an article to be allowed on Wikipedia it must have a notable impression on the world, and be proven through reports from international news or from articles from established websites.

You're taking extremes of the point, though I hear what you're saying. But there's nothing wrong IMO with citing an official page for something like the date of a release.

Try telling that to the moderators of Wikipedia. Those are the standards they go by.
