Let's rephrase the style guide a bit to allow for a somewhat broader scope of content at Metapedia. As long as the articles are useful and/or interesting for our audience, I think they should be allowed. For example articles related to improving personal finances and reducing personal taxation can be regarded as relevant. --Aurvandil 15:14, 18 March 2018 (CET)

Backing up Metapedia
Is there any way to download or backup Metapedia so we will be able to continue its message if something happens to it? Would you mind if I use the software wget to download Metapedia for this purpose? MyStSh (talk) 14:35, 5 May 2019 (UTC)

I saw that you deleted the article Sorin Cerin.I don't understand why.Do you think that if I updated it with the latest editorial and press releases to Sorin Cerin, the article on this topic could be published? I do not understand why it was deleted because Sorin Cerin is one of the most notable writers of Romanian origin.Dan
- Why is he "notable"? He is self-publishing books, not something a "notable" author does. Even Wikipedia does not mention him with a word, even if only to to criticize him for something, and Wikipedia mentions rather non-notable persons, if only to criticize them. He describes himself as a "true supporter of globalization", so he seems to just to be a politically correct and non-notable self-published writer. Upplysning (talk) 15:59, 26 February 2020 (UTC)
It is not so. It sees the distant future of mankind as global but does not agree with the loss of the identity of nations. Sorin Cerin is against current globalism. He has published in the most select and prestigious publishing houses in Romania, such as Eminescu publishing house. He published in the eLiterature and Paco publishing houses. Only in these publishers has he published dozens of books. As an example, the book entitled, A moment of eternity, even it appears on Amazon as being published by a self- publishing house, it was initially published at a prestigious publishing house in Romania, by the publisher Vasile Poenaru. To access the Romanian diaspora he published the book on the Amazon platform, but the book appears published by the Romanian publisher Vasile Poenaru and not by Sorin Cerin. Like this example there are dozens.
It is normal for Sorin Cerin not to be remembered by Wikipedia because he is a fighter against Wikipedia. He has published several books against Wikipedia. Since 2016 Sorin Cerin has sued Wikipedia for discrimination. Sorin Cerin recently wrote a book entitled The Wikipedia Process and Human Rights. The most important personalities of the Romanian literary and philosophical critic wrote about Sorin Cerin's work, in the most prestigious cultural magazines. About Sorin Cerin critics and specialists, they wrote more than most of the Romanian writers who are on Wikipedia. Sorin Cerin meets all the requirements of being on Wikipedia but is judged with Wikipedia for discrimination. If you want other data I am at your disposal. A concrete example is this book that appeared at the prestigious Eminescu publishing house and only then on an internet platform. https://www.amazon.com/Procesul-Wikipedia-Drepturile-serviciile-justitia/dp/1724971891/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=sorin+cerin+procesul+wikipedia&qid=1582740721&s=books&sr=1-1 https://books.google.ro/books/about/Culegere_de_Intelepciune.html?id=tYcIcsHubfsC&printsec=frontcover&source=kp_read_button&redir_esc=y#v=onepage&q&f=false

- All the four links you give state the publishers as being self-publishing publishers. He utterly non-notable. Upplysning (talk) 18:34, 26 February 2020 (UTC)
Then I will give you a link to the bookstores in Romania that sell the book of the printed eLiterature publishing house https://www.librariaeminescu.ro/fr/isbn/606-700-750-3/Sorin-Cerin__O-clipa-de-eternitate-Poezii-de-meditatie.html
https://www.librariaeminescu.ro/ro/isbn/606-700-754-1/Sorin-Cerin__Zile-de-carton-Poezii-de-meditatie.html It can be clearly seen that eLiterature is a professional publishing house of writers members of the Writers Union of Romania.
It can be seen that the ISBNs of the books are for publishing and not for self-publishing.
Sorin Cerin has published tens of books.
Books by Sorin Cerin at the most prestigious publishing house in Romania, Eminescu publishing house:

I documented myself about globalization. Sorin Cerin is fighting against globalization. Sorin Cerin wrote the book entitled Death and Bilderberg Group
If you want I can give you whole quotes where he fight against globalization.I do not understand why you want to delete Sorin Cerin at any cost.It is clear that Sorin Cerin's books appeared before being published on the Internet in notable publishers.
Once he is a notable writer who publishes in notable publishers and wrote about him the most notable specialists who have articles on Wikipedia then why should Sorin Cerin be deleted?If you need further clarifications I can give you anytime. Believe me, if Sorin Cerin wasn't one of the most important Romanian writers, I wouldn't fight so much for him.I have published on Romanian Metapedia, in 11 years since I am admin hundreds of writers.When I support Sorin Cerin I know what I'm talking about. I respect you very much because I know how difficult it is to make certain decisions.If you think it would be good to vote more administrators for Sorin Cerin OK.If you can be useful with new information about Sorin Cerin please let me know.Dan
- "eLiteratura" is yet another self-publisher. Regarding "Editura Eminescu", which you claim is "the most prestigious publishing house in Romania", its stated webpage is dead, so if it is providing or provided self-publishing cannot be checked. Regardless, you have not presented any evidence for your claim that Sorin Cerin is "one of the most notable writers of Romanian origin". Even the Romanian Wikipedia does not mention him.
- Considering your strange insistence on this non-notable self-publishing writer, you either have some kind of personal association with him or you are just trying to fill Metapedia with junk to harm it. Upplysning (talk) 18:17, 27 February 2020 (UTC)
Why I consider Sorin Cerin:"one of the most notable writers of Romanian origin"?Because the most important literary critics of Romania wrote about him.In Romania, all publishers require a certain fee to publish poetry other than the Paco publishing house. Then we can call them all self-publishing? In Romania, thousands of books appear at prestigious publishers every year, but only a few of them are taken up by literary criticism. The rest are considered a junk. A book can be junk even if it appears in a prestigious publishing house or It can be a masterpiece if it is recognized by the specialized critic even if it appears in an obscure publishing house. Of the thousands of books published annually, those of Sorin Cerin were recognized by the most important literary critics of Romania as one of the most important writers.Some of the most important critics of Romania who wrote about Sorin Cerin:
According to Wikipedia is considered by several literary critics and editorialists one of the most important and influential contemporary Romanian literary critics, being accredited as one of the best and most refined poetry critics of Romania.Wrote about Sorin Cerin here: http://uniuneascriitorilorfilialaiasi.ro/poezia/2016/04/10/al-cistelecan-intre-reflectie-si-atitudine/ http://uniuneascriitorilorfilialaiasi.ro/poezia/2016/04/

Many other specialists have written about Sorin Cerin. If you want, I can remind you all. Editura Eminescu never providing or provided self-publishing.Eminescu publishing house ran between 1969 and 2011. Sorin Cerin was among the last authors published in Eminescu in 2009.And now it is listed on the Romanian book market as the most important publishing house that worked in Romania where they published the most important names of the Romanian culture.Most of the books published by Sorin Cerin appeared in the Paco publishing house in Bucharest. Paco is not self-published.Some books by Sorin Cerin appeared in the Paco publishing house: Iluzia Vietii https://books.google.ro/books?id=sj5gBwAAQBAJ&pg=PA32&lpg=PA32&dq=iluzia+vietii&source=bl&ots=j_87gM0SZD&sig=ACfU3U1dPrH1OJmYV9PYCHVh_KBU0zeClg&hl=ro&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjjwJiOsvPnAhWx-yoKHfGcD4QQ6AEwCHoECBMQAQ#v=onepage&q=iluzia%20vietii&f=false Non-Sensurl Existentei https://books.google.ro/books/about/Nonsensul_Existentei.html?id=kxtgBwAAQBAJ&printsec=frontcover&source=kp_read_button&redir_esc=y#v=onepage&q&f=false and many other books.I'm not close to Sorin Cerin to say that I wanted to help him in a certain way. I've never met him.But I cannot agree to delete a very important writer of Romanian literature.Why do I say this?If it were not so, the most important literary critics of Romania would not have written about him.Al Cistelecan is considered the most important Romanian literary critic of poetry by Wikipedia.Al Cistelecan never wrote about a writer as he wrote about Sorin Cerin.Not to mention dozens of other literary critics.The eLiterature publishing house is not a self publisher.Almost all the current pubhers in Romania demand a symbolic fee and the rest of the money is covered by government funds.Paco Publishing House does not even charge this fee.A writer who wrote the most important literary critics of Romania, university professors or members of the Romanian Academy, cannot be called junk.A writer who has appeared in the most important dictionaries and anthologies cannot be called junk.Therefore, I don't think I've ever written an article on Metapedia that could be called junk.Please remember only one article you can call junk,apart from the article now being discussed.If Al Cistelecan wrote about Sorin Cerin and his philosophical poetry, that is, until now in the whole Romanian literary history, there has not been a poet who can really manage to write philosophical poetry at the academic and artistic level,because this literary genre is very difficult but Sorin Cerin is the only one who has succeeded,throughout the Romanian literary history . And now you ask me to deny Sorin Cerin because you tell me he's a junk?If he is junk why is he recognized as the most important philosopher poet by Al Cistelecan?Al Cistelecan who is considered in turn the most important poetry critic of Romania by all the other literary critics according to Wikipedia. Who to believe first, in you about which I do not know what preparation you have in the field of literature or in Al Cistelecan the most important poetry critic of Romania?That's why I want to keep Sorin Cerin's article in Metapedia and not because I have ever met Sorin Cerin.Because of these things I consider Sorin Cerin an important contemporary Romanian writer.Once a critic like Al Cistelecan considered by Wikipedia to be the most important poetry critic so he wrote about Sorin Cerin, then it means that Sorin Cerin would have long been on Wikipedia.The problem is that Sorin Cerin wrote against Wikipedia and the abuses in that encyclopedia.Give me one reason why I think Sorin Cerin doesn't deserve a page on Metapedia and I'll delete it myself.But once Al Cistelecan is the most important literary critic of poetry in Romania,and he wrote about Sorin Cerin as being unique in the whole history of Romanian literature, that no one was able to do what Sorin Cerin did in Romanian literature, I cannot delete Sorin Cerin. Please put yourself in my place. knowing about Sorin Cerin that they wrote the most important critics in Romania, that they consider him to be one of the most important Romanian writers, did you delete Sorin Cerin? When Ion Dodu Balan compared Sorin Cerin to the great thinkers of the world, and Al Cistelacan wrote that he is unique in Romanian literature succeeding where others failed have you deleted Sorin Cerin?If he had not had such recognition I would have erased him immediately without any hesitation, but in this case I cannot do it knowing that he is one of the most important Romanian writers.Dan

I have noticed that you have deleted a great many articles and replaced them with sometimes a single almost pointless sentence suggesting that anyone who wishes to know about the subject should not find it on Metapedia, but offering them instead internet links. Surely that defeats the purpose of Metapedia, which is to provide an alternative truth to what is elsewhere? This is a good example: https://en.metapedia.org/wiki/Earnest_Sevier_Cox Here you suggest people look at a link which you confess is Politically Correct? How does this kind of action assist Metapedia? Matt58 (talk) 16:17, 17 June 2020 (UTC)
- Many articles are junk, in many cases old copypastes of Wikipedia as well as often containing deliberately false and ridiculous material added by a previous group of editors. External links can provide useful information, including alternative information. Regarding Cox, I had difficulty finding less politically correct links, so I added something for background. Please add more, if you have something interesting. Upplysning (talk) 16:24, 17 June 2020 (UTC)
