Aloha Travel Trailers on Wikipedia

Have you ever tried to add an entry to Wikipedia? It is a huge pain in the butt. I had this article deleted twice by other users because I didn't use reference materials correctly. Ugh...if this link does not work that means that they deleted it again. Let me know what you think.

*editors note* I just checked my entry again a couple hours after entering it, I was half way expecting it to be deleted but instead several people have already improved the article, added links, cleaned it up etc. You have to love Wikipedia.

*note* and then it got deleted AGAIN. So now I've tweaked it little so it's an entry for Aloha Trailer Company. Let see if this will stick. Oh wait...the same guy is trying to delete it again. Maybe this will never happen. why is this so hard?

**note** still learning to swim with the big fishes on Wikipedia. Still a ray of hope. Makes my brain hurt.


  1. Hi there, why don't you get involved in the deletion discussion and we can help you improve the article. I suspect that the company is in fact notable, but it is true that we need some better sources. Are you willing to make a trip to the library?

  2. Hi Katr, thank you. You might not believe me but I am trying to participate in the discussion but I don't know how. I'm really into aloha trailers but I don't understand Wikipedia's format at all. I do believe that this Company is notable enough to be Wikipedia worthy and I'm willing to do whatever it takes. I have been to the library and contacted the local chamber of commerce and I'm fairly confident of my facts but I'm not sure how to format them correctly for Wikipedia.

    1. no, the wikepedians in Portland are pretty hard core, they didn't consider it worthy. But I might try again if I can get some better supporting data.
