    I need a little help.
    Several times I have tried to find recent information on the web on
    good places to find good geek items like electronics parts in specific
    locations like Dallas, Hong Kong, and Southern California. Sometimes
    after various amounts of searching I would find a few places for each
    location but nowhere was there a good current comprehensive list.

    A lot of my searches would lead to the Wikipedia so in my ignorance I
    created a 'Geek shopping' article in the hopes that other people would
    both find use for it, and add to it so that fellow geek shoppers would
    have a much easier time.

    I half expected the page to not meet Wikipedias criterea for survival.
    However I didn't expect it to be immediately attacked and marked for
    deletion for such reasons as the anagram for Geek Shopping is 'Pigpen
    kegs, ho'! I suspect that the page is being attacked by a core group
    of Wikipedia 'nabobs of negativity' who have nothing to do with whether
    the page is valid material or not (it probably isn't as it stands).

    Therefore I am asking that you take a look at
    'http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geek_shopping' and update it and make it
    more useful. Also please go to the link on the line reading 'See this
    article's entry on the Pages for Deletion page' and add your comments
    on if the article should be deleted or not.
     

  2. I agree with people on wikipedia, delete it. But not yet. Let's look at
    it for a while, see if it developes into anything better. In the
    current form, it's useless.
    So I think we should vote for keeping it, and then edit it to confirm to
    a higher quality.
     
  3. oh, and have a look at it now. I've edited it heavily, added wiki markup
    (use # for creating numbered lists and so on), added some descriptional
    material, and in general made it more informative. Remember that
    wikipedia articles should be usefull outside this limited community,
    and as such it should contain info about the phenomena, which your
    article did not.
