Good post! I'm not sure why but that made me laugh. (Referncing these edits obviously). Christopher (talk) 18:47, 14 March 2017 (UTC)
On a more mundane note, when including a link to Wikipedia, you can use {{wpl|red velvet cake}} producing red velvet cakeWikipedia. Christopher (talk) 18:49, 14 March 2017 (UTC)

Wikipedia Page deletion[edit]

The Wikipedia page on the animation was deleted, I couldn't save it. Here's the contents for reference:

{{one source|date=May 2017}} {{notability|date=September 2008}} {{nihongo|'''Red Room'''|赤い部屋|Akai heya}} is an interactive [[Adobe Flash]] [[horror fiction|horror]] animation, entirely in [[Japanese language|Japanese]], about an [[urban legend]] called "the Red Room". The [[protagonist]] searches on the Internet for proof of its existence, only for the results to go horribly wrong. It can be considered a prank because an unexpected command is sent for the browser to display a similar pop-up to that in the animation which takes place just after the video ends. This Flash video gained notoriety when it was discovered to be a favorite of the schoolgirl who committed the [[Sasebo slashing]] on June 1, 2004.<ref>{{cite web|url=|script-title=ja:殺害手口、参考の可能性 ネットの物語掲載サイト|language=Japanese|publisher=Nagasaki Shimbun|date=2004-06-09|accessdate=2008-06-23}}{{dead link|date=September 2016|bot=medic}}{{cbignore|bot=medic}}</ref> [[File:Red_room_animation_popup.png|thumb|right|Do you like it?]] ==Summary of the video== Two friends discuss a rumor about an Internet [[pop-up ad]] that asks {{nihongo|"Do you like —?"|あなたは—好きですか?|Anata wa—suki desu ka?}}. If someone closes the pop-up, the person dies. The more skeptical friend does some investigation. At home, he researches it online but is unable to find anything about the site. After he ends his search and begins looking at his usual websites, the message pops up, with a childlike voice asking: "Do you like —?" Even after he closes the pop up, it keeps re-appearing, repeatedly asking "Do you like —?". It then starts automatically reloading and the girl's voice becomes mangled until the boy eventually notices the question changed to "Do you like red?". The boy keeps clicking off the pop-up until a new part of the message is revealed, finally asking the completed question in a normal child's voice: {{nihongo|"Do you like the red room?"|あなたは赤い部屋が好きですか?|Anata wa akai heya ga suki desu ka?}}. Then a website with a list of names appears, with the boy's friend at the bottom. The boy becomes aware of something behind him. The next day, there is rumour and gossip at a school about two students who committed suicide, painting their rooms red with their own blood. Then, the protagonist's computer is displayed, with the protagonist's name at the bottom of the list. It then shuts off, along with an eerie sound. After the video ends, if the user's browser has not disabled pop-ups, a pop-up resembling the ad from the story will appear. ==See also== *[[Game brain]] *[[Sasebo slashing]] *[[Dark web]] ==References== {{Reflist}} ==External links== *[ The ''Red Room'' video] (Japanese) – Requires Flash Player version or higher ([ check installed version]). *[ The actual "killer popup"] at [[Internet Archive]] – Also requires Flash *[ ''Red Room'' analysis] (information) [[Category:Internet memes]] [[Category:Flash cartoons]] [[Category:Urban legends]] {{animation-stub}} Deku-shrub (talk) 00:08, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
