I'm a conflict of interest, so I can't make one for PF. However, I'd welcome someone else in creating one. Of course it must be historical and informational, rather than promotional.

I will be the LAST person here who would make a Wikipedia entry. I would be a hypocrite doing that after what I've said about my feelings toward it.

I always visit Wikipedia for General purpose as knowing about the Author,Scientific Societies, Movies etc. Wikipedia just want to expand his list of Titles they have lacks of Editors.

But here PF Library is also Good. Just add some photographs, Videos and at below Further Reading Book Name & Link of that book at PF Science Textbook Discussion.

Wikipedia pages about forums are problematic - usually, you don't find other sources discussing this forum, so the article (apart from very general data like url, number of posts and so on) would be original research. See the Wikipedia guidlines for notability. I think there are wikis for websites, where this is not an issue, but who would see an article there?
