Did you nuke Melbourne from the surface with various yields to see what would happen?

Someone should let him know that it isn't considered canon by fox anymore.

Someone's got to go round making every Alien Wikipedia entry reflect the facts then, not the fiction created by marketing ironically, requires doing.

Easier said than done, wikipedia is more rigid than mediawikis so it will need cold hard sourced facts on the page otherwise they will get reverted.

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

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.
