It's point 1) for me too. There was a period a few years ago where one or two editors had targeted webcomics as an area that needed tidying up. They were deleting as non-notable webcomics which had higher reader numbers than many US newspapers, and which the creators were making a living from.

No amount of rallying from the readers would persuade these editors not to delete these entries.

I still occasionally tweek errors in articles, but don't normally bother.


For instance in Time of Eve, it states that couple of things happened, when they are only _implied_ to have happened. A big difference in a show where the main premis is about the characters concealing things. But I can't be bothered to edit it, as there's every chance it'll be decided it's non-notable and disappear soon anyway.

Do you remember one or two examples of which webcomics got deleted?

It goes back through 2005, and 2006, but the biggest fuss I recall was in 2007.

The attempt to delete one of the longest standing webcomic hosting projects, Keenspot, was particularly daft.

that's exactly what happened with PX!, and that was in '08. The PX forums are gone now, so I can't dig up dates.
