The scrypt articel already mentions Litecoin: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scrypt
That is a first step.

How many independent sources are needed to avoid deletion? 10?
The german wikipedia doesn't give a number. But a presentation on conferences is a criteria to avoid deletion.
I am not sure if the Bitcoin 2013 counts (coblee is a speaker).

I have started the fundraiser and the work has begun.  Please contribute to cover costs.  Once the initial work is done I am sure there will be a lot of community feedback. Following this, I will look for people to do translations in different languages.

So far there's:
http://www.technologyreview.com/news/513661/bitcoin-isnt-the-only-cryptocurrency-in-town/
http://www.heise.de/newsticker/meldung/Litecoin-und-PPCoin-statt-Bitcoin-1842503.html
http://www.heise.de/tr/artikel/Kein-Chance-auf-ein-Monopol-1842133.html

These won't be the last noteable press-hits and it's only a matter of time to legitimate a wikipedia entry.

I'd say it's time to bring the article back now.

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they keep laughing, then they start choking on their laughter, and then they go and catch their breath. Then they start laughing even more.

If there are thousands and thousands people around the world mining, exchanging, and speculating a digital product on daily basis, I am sure a lot of people are eager to find out what it is.

Yet Wikipedia doesn't have an entry for it, it won't  make them look good.

Can we PLEASE get a Wikipedia editor to get this up?

It is the second most valuable cryptocurrency by thousands of a percent!!!  There is a PPC article but no LTC at all.  LTC market capitalization is in the tens of millions of dollars!!

The haters of Litecoin who fear it is taking value from BTC due to the LTC immunity to ASICs are abusing Wikipedia.  There is room for more than one cryptocurrency, and Litecoin can coexist peacefully.  Please put away your fear and STOP abusing Wiki to keep LTC from where it belongs - with its own entry.  It is rare to see Wikipedia cencsored this badly for this long.

We need an established editor to make the article - it won't let me because I don't have a months long history on Wikipedia editing previously.

Major news articles just today where Litecoin may bot be the ONLY focus but it is a major part of the discussion:

I've moved it back to mainspace as I think (with the new sources) it's now notable enough. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Litecoin)

Great start - I will have it up to 1000 words by Monday. It's coming!

I would appreciate that no one touches it because current information is obsolete and references are invalid.

Please do not touch this until psybits gets his content ready.

A HUGE THANK YOU!  Grin

Also happy to see the Economist link used.

Who was the actual author?  They deserve some tips, no?

Not sure if you mean the author of the Wikipedia page or Economist article, if you mean the Wikipedia article, I'm the original author, but others have also put in some edits too, you can see the full history here:
