Wtf? Was there any discussion? Fubar.
I saw it had been marked as not-relevant. I was rather surprised, actually, but I don't really know the editorial guidelines. Anyone familiar?
oop, apparently: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia ... eletion#G8 was the reason - without access to the page, I'm not sure what the broken link might've been.

EDIT: looks like https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WiGLE is still accessible - it seems to be a linking thing?
A request for undeletion was done, which restored the one page, but it would be good to improve the references..

"A search of Google News for wigle wifi shows the subject of the page is newsworthy/notable, Several other Wiki pages linked to it, or to WiGLE_(WiFi), which I believe had forwarded to WiGLE. —PTMY (talk) 23:23, 27 June 2017 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done – as a contested proposed deletion, the article has been restored upon request. I strongly suggest you add further/better references to the article to avoid it being deleted again. Hut 8.5 06:42, 28 June 2017 (UTC)"
Updated a few numbers and references - what else should go there to help with relevance?

how the signal weighted centroid trilateration works? (how we position the APs)
submission history (mobile was the big elbow in the graph)
what people use the data for?
As I understand, they want to see References, especially from 3rd parties. News articles, academic papers, books, reviews, whatever that makes it seem noteworthy, and worthy of mention in an encyclopedia. I was going to add some from Google news when I get off work. Oh, and they don't like recruiting support. So ssshhhh. Lol.
hah! fair-enough on their part. anyway, thank you for the heads-up and the non-solicited support. ;)

It's a good reminder for the WiGLE team to keep things up-to-date, too (those stats had gotten CRUFTY)
