My stance is wait and see. Then, when dust settles, rewrite when necessary. I did the same during edit-war concerning (not)bancruptcy of Hyperion in 2015.

Rewriting big articles takes time, which I devote to other aspects of life (playing video games ), so I rather pursue only minor corrections, updates and reverting vandalism. Sometimes, when an Amiga article is in danger of deletion (like CAMD driver one just few weeks ago), I do proper research for sources with full rewrite.

If you have any info you want to add, feel free to post desired changes here (or on the article talkpage, or - of course - you may edit Wikipedia yourself).

If the list is not too long, I may research for best sources myself. Probably not before this weekend (I have another non-Amiga related article to save right now).

I won't argue you change the wording now.
But logically if you feel it stands at present as accurate, then it is not only a part of Amiga_Inc wiki, but should also be included in Hyperion wiki as part of their history, simply due to the naming of both parties.

But I do have an upgrade that does meet your criteria for having a legal document backed up by a news article:

Hyperion wiki:
Quote:
In 2009, Hyperion changed legal status from business partnership (VOF) to company with limited liability (CVBA).[34]


The associated legal document has been public knowledge for like ever. heh.
http://www.ejustice.just.fgov.be/tsv_pdf/2009/04/23/09058928.pdf

Whereas the article only indicates this took place at some time prior to writing the article, the legal document gives you the exact date to enter in the timeline, which does use specific dates both before and after that entry.

Gateway wiki history still mentions Amiga

Amiga expunged entirely from Gateway wiki history

Any clue as to the reasoning behind eliminating this history?

Check my post 708 in this thread.


I had returning this information to the Gateway article on my to-do list, but I (apparently...) forgot. Same for your request above. Must find some time on the next weekend (so, if you have any other request, feel free to fire it at me).

Just a reminder.

Your entry for Hyperion Entertainment changing from VOF to CVBA still links to the article with vague dating.
Please review my prior post. It meets your criteria for requiring both a news story (which you have) and an actual legal document (which I posted).
This allows you to post a specific date for this event.

I would hope if this is Hyperion/Colanto revising history to suit their legal claims, no judge would use Wikipedia to make the basis of a decision.
