I think the The Island of Dr. Moreau article content should be merged with wikipedia and deleted from wikifur.... It's notable to furries but doesn't contain anthing that wouldn't be served better by the wikipedia article... perhaps a highlight of the furry elements of the story or it's relationship to furry stories/culture -- DeVandalizer 00:23, 4 August 2006 --EarthFurst 16:32, 23 August 2006 (UTC)(UTC)

I vote strongly oppose. I think a good WikiFur article about TIODMoreau (The Island of Dr. Moreau) would be "information of use to the furry community.". What do people think about:
  • (step 1) reverting The Island of Dr. Moreau back to Mwalimu's latest version
  • (step 2) change The Island of Dr. Moreau so it links to wikipedia's TIODMoreau article, possibly with a disclaimer (about difference(s) between WikiFur and Wikipedia?)
  • (step 3,4,etc) create WikiFur articles about Moreau-inspired elements (examples: articles about JLA: The Island of Dr. Moreau and an article about Moreau-and-animen in volume 2 of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen comics) --EarthFurst 16:32, 23 August 2006 (UTC)
I think furry traces enough of its origins to this work (at least the book, though perhaps not the movie versions) that any furry pedia would be incomplete without it. Looking at the article's history, I think it was good up to about the 13 April edit; I question whether there was much value-add in the material added in 18 July edits, which also un-wikified some of the links that had been there before. Definitely clean it up as needed, make it more relevant to furry fandom, but don't delete the article. --mwalimu 19:25, 23 August 2006 (UTC)

Nudging this on to recent changes in hopes of discussion, as the article has been sitting with a delete template on it for a while now. -- Sine 02:57, 19 September 2006 (UTC)

Oppose. The article needs to be cleaned up, but there's enough context of interest for the fandom. --Frizzy 04:25, 19 September 2006 (UTC)
Opposed. Methinks we should keep it as long as it's cleaned up good and proper. --Tori 13:30, 8 October 2006 (UTC)
