Roshan De Silva’s mysterious disappearance from Omnipedia was previously discussed in here. (The name was slightly misspelled, as I drew it from my memory and couldn’t fact check it as it had, well, disappeared.)
And now De Silva has popped up again! But in a completely different context, in the page about Sofia Peña:
In case the mention disappears once again, I’ll copypaste the important part here:
In 2037, Peña joined the United Nations Futures Research Agency (UNFRA), where she contributed to various research and cultural projects related to localised implementations of global health policies. In May 2037, Peña brought charges of bullying and sexual harassment against Roshan De Silva, who resigned from the UNFRA after the case was settled out of court.
And the text that appears in the hovering box about De Silva says they following:
Roshan De Silva (born 1999) is a Sri Lankan political strategist and chief advisor to Xu Shaoyong. Born in Hambantota, De Silva studied at Tsinghua University and worked at various companies before entering politics in the administration of President Victor Senanayake. In 2040, De Silva was hired by Zhupao to serve as the company’s liaison to Sri Lanka.
Between Disappearing de Silva and the questionable edits we’re seeing on other articles, I’d say yes. Omnipedia’s article has been edited too, removing the part about Tony giving every article a final pass before publication. Anything could happen to these articles! For the sake of the integrity of the information on this site, and of everyone who will come upon it after us, (not to mention our own sanity!) I think quotes and screenshots here in the Talk pages will be important documentation.
Hello! Omnipedia is constantly changing and evolving, and as such articles are continuously updated to be as correct as possible. There is no need to keep records of things that were removed, as removal occurs only after thorough review. You can trust us to be as objective as possible.
Ooooooh dang, you are right! Somehow I thought it would take them (whoever they are) at least a day to scrub the text clean, but it took even less than that! Seems like we have to be pretty quick about seeing the og version if we want to get a glimpse of it before it’s gone forever.
Thanks Tony! =) I’m sure we don’t need to, but maybe we want to do it just for… Fun! Yeah, just for fun! =)
Thank you for your hard work Tony and the rest of the Omnipedia team! What would we ever do if we were flooded with such irrelevant information! =)
