So it appears that someone from Wikipedia as replied to a message I sent them. Here’s exactly what they said:
Hi Racerclc, thank you for joining the discussion! I wouldn’t say that IFC members need to stop editing the article, because you’re all knowledgeable and passionate about Infinite Flight. Caring about the subject is, in most cases, a good thing. I’d just say that you should step back for a bit to understand what Wikipedia is and how it works.
The important thing to know about Wikipedia is that we’re an encyclopedia and that all of our content should be based on “reliable, third-party, published sources with a reputation for fact-checking and accuracy”. As an encyclopedia, we write general summaries and that means avoiding trivial details—like pricing, lists of gameplay items/vehicles/places, descriptions of play modes, version histories, etc.—unless those details are something that reliable sources talk a lot about. For example, if Infinite Flight cost $500 per month, I’m sure that would get tons of (negative) coverage. But $9.99 per month? It’s mundane enough that nobody cares. And because we summarize what reliable sources say, then we shouldn’t care, either. Now when I say “reliable sources”, for a game or simulator like Infinite Flight that usually means reputable video games and technology sites/magazines like GameSpot, IGN, PC Magazine, Kotaku, Polygon, etc. (And then there are unreliable sources, like forum posts, press releases, advertisements, purchase/download sites, etc. We rarely ever use them as sources.) At WP:MOSVG you can read about the kinds of content we do (and do not) write about in our articles. And at WP:VG/S you can read about the sources that cover video games and simulators. (There are also plenty of things to read in the welcome message I left on your own talk page.)
The content that’s been added to this article is far too detailed for Wikipedia, especially because no reliable sources are covering Infinite Flight at this time. (As I mentioned above, the most recent reliable source I could find was from 2014.) What you really need is a dedicated wiki like Wikia where you can be as detailed as you want.
As for Infinite Flight LLC, our conflict of interest guidelines strongly discourage them from editing the article directly. Of course, anyone at their company is more than welcome to create individual accounts (i.e., not a company/group account), disclose their conflict of interest, and suggest edits backed by sources.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask! And I hope this helps! Cheers! Woodroar (talk) 22:02, 1 November 2018 (UTC)
So… it looks like our Wikipedia endeavor has come to an end (for the reasons Woodroar stated). Wikipedia just isn’t the best place for something like Infinite Flight.
But is anyone interested in creating our own fan-made IF wiki outside of Wikipedia, similar to what many other programs have? I’d be up for that.
