Re - why you're not hosting at Wikipedia: I assume you have plans to move this project to your own server at some point, then? --No-One Jones 21:51, 12 Feb 2004 (UTC)

The powerpedia page has now been replaced with a standard "nothing here yet" page from their registrar. Is the site down for good? Pakaran. 20:28, 2 Mar 2004 (UTC)

    • Wikipedia is not a personal homepage and bandwidth theft is a bad thing. Angela. 01:30, Mar 2, 2004 (UTC)
    • Delete Perl
    • Delete. Wikipedia does not host personal homepages. Sterlingda has been given a long time to move this content. Maximus Rex 01:54, 2 Mar 2004 (UTC)
    • Delete all. Evercat 01:57, 2 Mar 2004 (UTC)
    • Delete all. He lost interest in editing the main namespace once he realized that self-promotion is not encouraged. He didn't stop working on this stuff. Isomorphic 02:18, 2 Mar 2004 (UTC)
    • Delete, but give fair warning.—Eloquence
      • I have sent Sterlingda an email alerting him to this listing. -- Cyan 04:35, 2 Mar 2004 (UTC)
    • Del. --Wik 04:27, Mar 2, 2004 (UTC)
    • Keep User:Sterlingda/Wiki All. Delete the rest. -- Cyan 04:35, 2 Mar 2004 (UTC)
    • Agree with Cyan. Kosebamse 08:01, 2 Mar 2004 (UTC)
    • Delete. Keep User:Sterlingda/Wiki All as Cyan said. — Sverdrup (talk) 08:51, 2 Mar 2004 (UTC)
    • Delete all but User:Sterlingda/Wiki All as suggested above. There is some indication that [1] is expecting this, their links have been updated in the last few minutes and the notice saying their stuff is "hosted on Wikipedia" has just vanished. Andrewa 08:56, 2 Mar 2004 (UTC)
      • Make that speedy delete, or at least immediate blanking and protecting (which may not be effective if they're clever). I just had a look at [2] and they are adding 3rd-party advertisements to the material they host on Wikipedia. Possibly these are from their hosting company, but it's still Wikimedia money paying their hosting bills. If we're very kind, we could offer to temporarily undelete on the condition that the ads are removed first. Andrewa 18:06, 2 Mar 2004 (UTC)
    • Keep 'Wiki All'. Del 'rest' (sadly). ... I was wondering, how / where could something akin to this be possible? (ala. the above is not acceptible, but teh premise could eb workable) ... There are other projects on things and thier uses [ex., "WikiProject Weaponry" and "WikiProject Automobile construction"] ... guess, I'll read up on it [off to look @ the project pages] JDR [PS. respond to my talk page, if you have a response]
      • I think many would sympathise with them. All the more reason for them to buy their own hosting. Continued on your user talk page as requested. Andrewa 16:50, 2 Mar 2004 (UTC)
    • Delete most, keep Wiki All. - Fennec 16:45, 2 Mar 2004 (UTC)
    • NOTE FROM USER:STERLINGDA
      I had hoped we would have our own system up and running a month or two ago. It has taken longer than I thought. We do have a server set up now that can handle this. Please let us get it migrated over before you delete. We should be able to have it done in the next few days. At that point, I will create forwarding addresses, and all links will point to the new location. At that point, there will be virtually no bandwidth issues for Wikipedia. Even now, if you check your stats, I doubt that there are bandwidth issues. We are still in early start-up phase. Sterlingda 17:54, Mar 2, 2004 (UTC)
      • Starlingda: Even if this gets deleted, I can email you the wiki source or something... or you can copy it into your favorite text editor now. By the way, if nothing else, "free energy" is questionable from an NPOV standpoint (I'm trying to be polite here.) Pakaran. 17:57, 2 Mar 2004 (UTC)
          • Hmm ... Pakaran, what do you mean? How is free energy questionable from an NPOV standpoint? The concept can be dealt with objectively [and has been]. JDR
    • Concerning the talk about deletion, this is our first experience with Wiki and we (PES authors) ask that you bear with us until we rehost the material. Any info on how rehosting/downloading is done? eMail mwiseman1@cox.net (moved from bottom of vfd page to relevant section by akaDruid 18:05, 2 Mar 2004 (UTC))
    • Delete and speedy - the advertising pushes it over the edge - see Andrewa's note above - Texture 18:09, 2 Mar 2004 (UTC)
    • Email the Wikitext of these pages to Sterlingda or appropriate, and delete them. Dysprosia 22:06, 2 Mar 2004 (UTC)
    • Delete. --Flockmeal 23:19, Mar 2, 2004 (UTC)
    • Delete. The pages are inappropriate. We are not a hosting agency or a holding tank. Sterlingda, you should simply copy the data onto your computer. It isn't complex data. Kingturtle 19:03, 4 Mar 2004 (UTC)
      • Comment: Of course it's not. This claims to be a technical site. Their inability to get a Wiki running within three months is quite literally incredible. Post delete, the pages can be emailed to the creator on request, as deleted pages regularly are to any user requesting them. But surely they have offline copies? In any case there is no suggestion that they will lose their data, just the ability to (very competently) use Wikipedia servers to run their advertiser-supported site. Andrewa 20:40, 4 Mar 2004 (UTC)
    • Delete, please. We are not a file repository. Secretlondon 22:30, 4 Mar 2004 (UTC)
    • Del. Fair notice given. --Jerzy(t) 04:40, 2004 Mar 6 (UTC)
