    Wikipedia CProgramming Entry?

    I'm at work, rather bored and was surfing wikipedia, and I thought it would be kind of cool if we pooled together and made a wikipedia entry for CProgramming?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CProgramming

    The space is open, and it could get a lot more people to come here (read: free advertising).

    -CrystalSky?
    -UB

    Well... that was short lived.
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.

    Seems a little pointless to have information about a website in an online dictionary -- unless it is a dead and gone website.

    Lots of websites seem to have entries: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Websites
    If someone wrote more than two sentences about cprogramming, the article would probably stay. I still don't see the point, though.

    Maybe an entry under the C/C++ programming language pages would be better, since Cprog is one of the major C/C++ sites on the intarweb.
