This Wiki (in progress) serves as an archive of the Wikipedia Art entries and discussions as they existed on Wikipedia, both in its 15-hour existence on that site, as well as the few debates in the days that followed. The work now lives in a different form. The following linked pages are copies from Wikipedia articles with similar or the same names (see individual pages for more), from Feb 14-15 2009; they are, accordingly and in good faith, licensed under GFDL.
  • Wikipedia Art, the original post to Wikipedia on 14 February 2009 (not available anywhere in their archives)
  • Wikipedia Art RIP, Wikipedia Art just before it was removed from Wikipedia on 15 February 2009
  • Delete, the deleted and slated page on Wikipedia
  • Werdna, the 18 year old "old hand" that deleted the entry / art work.
  • History of Wikipedia Art completely erased from Wikipedia. Despite more than 2 dozen edits to the page, there is absolutely no record of its text, anywhere on the site.
  • Final Wikipedia-based discussion / debate (not really) featuring Wikipedia Art. Here the attempted page added (now gone) focuses on the domain dispute rather than the work of art or ongoing performance. There is also a proposal to merge the page into the larger Wikipedia in culture page, but eventually a small section was added to the pages of the artists.
