But now it's connected to our beloved acid-blooded extra-terrestrial too. Isn't it great ?

If you didn't get the reference, it was a Jurassic Park reference. But that's funny too.  :laugh:

We are working on a way to seperate the information, we are thinking maybe using tabs or something. its clear that A;CM is no longer canon anymore and so the information on the articles shouldn't be considered a part of the main canon. So we are going to work on that.....once we do get around to it. We have already had a discussion about the tabs but I am not a coder and the last I used tabs, it didn't work properly.

I do agree with you but unless someone can get a statement or some bit infor that can be cited then there is no point putting it on the wikipedia.org. On Xenopedia however, we are planning to use tabs to seperate the A;CM information.

Some of the other alien wikis have plagiarised from us, I don't bother with them except to report them when I can.

That is interesting, A:CM being treated as canon has bothered me so much since it came out.

Is there any update on this regarding Xenopedia?

Absolutely agreed.

While some may find what the creator of the work has to say as a reliable source, in this particular case I'd prefer to hear it from the mouth of someone from 20th Century Fox. After all, the origin of everything is in the movies.

This is what the wiki cites as evidence that ACM is canon:

Probably yes, citing multiple sources for statements though, takes a lot longer.
As preferable as it is, to just do the information itself, it's not as reliable.

It would be harder for them to change back if you could get an ironclad citation.

I'd do it honestly, apart from the fact of no experience on the formatting, otherwise yeah I'd author, but I'd require a guarantee it's unable to be altered by just anyone so, I'm not completely wasting my time.

Yes certainly it is, but it requires doing, especially with all the various unofficial Alien Wikipedia creations, more often than not contradicting each other.

If only someone with your level of dedication and tenacity was motivated enough to do so...

Would you rather live in a world without A:CM or have egg barfing as canon?
