It's linked to LARP down on the bottom. Am I the only person that would change that?

A little more information would help, but too much would be overkill. Personally I think part of the draw of belegarth is its simplicity relative to things like SCA that have "Royalty" etc.
Info on units and various levels of fighting might be good additions; ie, one -vs- one sparing/duels, small group games, and full line battles.
As far as pix go, it seems like there's plenty of people on the boards willing to let their pictures be used.

We'll never satisfy the standards of notability for Wikipedia; they've become really anal and power-mad over there, and anything short of major media coverage doesn't meet their idea of "notability".

I think that most of the Google/Youtube videos kick *, maybe they can help.

Just thought I'd drop by and say hello from Wikipedia. Judging by some of the new usernames popping up, I figured you guys might be organizing something on a different forum.

I just wanted to remind you that Wikipedia is not a promotional tool, and that there are policies about soliciting people from outside places to vote in debates.

So is the main problem right now that our sources are not legit? If that is the kase should we start looking for a specific kind of source? I found out about Belegarth by stumbling upon an online article in a small town paper somewhere, should I find that?

Yes. The primary issue is reliable sources. Wikipedia has a policy regarding what constitutes a reliable source. Student newspapers usually don't satisfy those criteria when it comes to notability constraints.

The specific kinds of sources you should look for are those that demonstrate a fair amount of editorial control. Student newspapers are generally willing to include material without too much oversight or content control. If something is described in a larger publication, there are steps taken to ensure that the material being described is important and correct.

Nope. Most scholarly material (i.e. books) is available only in print, so Wikipedia has a mechanism for citing offline sources. Check out this page.
