A Wikipedia post about Magento has been recently added. Check it out and update away!

Appears that the Wikipedia police are on it already. It has been flagged for ‘speedy deletion’. I think you need to add a ‘hangon’ tag to buy some editing time.

Struck down by the gods of wikiality.
Apparently Magento needs more truthiness.

I have a feeling it may return some day

How would we go about getting it back up?

I am not sure what the procedure is to get it back. Anyone know?

Give it some time. There should be some successful examples of live sites using Magento. Wikipedia has a rule against original research, so you need to have other public articles to reference. Maybe also look for some similar articles that were not deleted and follow their model - once there is enough material to do that.

Someone tried resurrecting the article, but it is written in a non-objective manner, using unreferenced claims and personal opinions. Initially I thought it just needs a little reformatting, so I added an infobox and some sub-headings. However, when I actually read the article I realized it would need a lot more work to avoid being deleted again. There is enough buzz and material around to make this article at least as good as the article on osCommerce, but I am not able to do it within the next few days.
