Wikipedia Entry for Feathercoin
Thanks for creating the article on wikipedia.
The ‘moderators’ already have placed their warning to remove the article, if no further and more reliable secondary sources are supplied.
sigh… nothing has changed.
I just found a relatively new article describing feathercoin.
It may be worth looking into and take some infromation from there and then add it to the list of secondary sources.
at least it is not driven or related to the feathercoin team, as far as I know
An older article I found at https://bitcoinmagazine.com/articles/feathercoin-interview-with-peter-bushnell-1376355117/
And finally I found a copy of the old wiki page for feathercoin:
That wasn’t me creating the article on Wikipedia as we aren’t ready yet
It’s very unfortunate that somebody jumped the gun and all we have to show for is a warning, but given the meagre content of the initial article, it’s not surprising.
What we need more than anything now are resources outside of bitcointalk.com (blacklisted by Wikipedia as a source), preferably from traditional old media. For a start, I’ll run with your references below.
Sorry to hear that.
On the other hand Wikipedia is designed to be edited by everyone, so do everything you need to do to improve the quality of the article.
Having no sources from print media was an issue the first time we had an article, too.
We didn’t find any
I use this thread to collect and documten sources I find on the web, so here are the next:
Not only about Feathercoin, rather old, but seems to be from ‘normal’ press:
Thanks @wellenreiter - the Guardian link is worth its weight in gold; have added the new sources to Wikipedia.
While I think it’s starting to look solid, more sources will definitely help - not to mention more substance
You may find some content in the old newsletters
While we can’t name them as resouces, they may help to get the history of the Feathers described.
@wellenreiter I can’t believe there were newsletters; thanks !

I noticed microphones in the very first newsletter issue; was there a pocast?
–> update: reading through, it’s clear that was a visit by a camera team; so I guess there wasn’t ever a podcast.

Great work from @j_scheibel. He pulled together all the information.
Here is the link
I found it as a foot note at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_cryptocurrencies
