Let's keep the liseuse wikipedia article from getting deleted!

Wikipedia wizards, we need you!
Keep the Liseuse article from getting deleted!
Your efforts to create a credible "Keep" argument on it's deletion page would be valuable! Improve the article if you can too to make it more professional and researched!
Come on, MobileReaders, we can do it!

If Wikipedia doesn't delete the "Liseuse" article, I will loose my faith in The free encyclopedia.

I want to help save the word, but I'm not sure how to do it. I created a Wikipedia account and have found the "Articles for deletion/Liseuse" page, but I don't know what to do now.

Click on 'edit' and add an entry in the "Articles for deletion/Liseuse" article that supports 'keep'. Use the other entries as a guide as to how to edit Wikis.
Maybe a greater Wikipedia user than I can provide better instructions
Oh, and your signature in Wikipedia is added by using four tildes ~~~~.

It belongs in the French Wikipedia, but not the English one.

go to this page:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikiped...iseuse#Liseuse
and add
*'''Delete''''''
*'''Redirect'''
or if you wish to keep the page
*'''Keep'''
Point.

See the above page for examples.

I do object to the claim:

Quote:
there has been a recent attempt by members of the MobileRead forums (an online community dedicated to ebooks and ebook readers) to have the word adopted for use in English.
I would say, personally, that the attempt has been made by a tiny minority of MR members, and that the majority view is that "eBook Reader" or "eReader" is the appropriate English term.
