As a campus movement it may well be worthy of note on the Trent University page, IHUB.org Founder, with a link to ihub.org, but i would be careful of that; i would list it among other similar notable campus movements if i were you. best wishes, man. i must abstain. -shuffdog 07:24, May 15, 2005 (UTC)
'Merge. Keep this page, because other more dubious pages than this one, with much less clear motives, survive VfD. Harro5 10:23, May 15, 2005 (UTC)
Keep it. By definition the purpose of an encyclopedia is to act as a reference book containing informational articles on subjects in every field of knowledge. iHUB appears to be a "neologistic concept " with noble and highly aimed goals. By its mission statement, the organization has the role of a hub and most importantly connecting all the people around the world. And therefore it definitely refers to everyone out there and what better place to be found at than among the content of an encyclopedia.--Ununoctium 14:42, 15 May 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Keep it, it should be listed in Wikipedia at least because of the goal and motives of org. (and for the rest the time will show)--Turbolium 11:20, 15 May 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Merge to college organizations. If it achieves national or international action (not membership), then it will have affected and acted in a larger context. Until that is true, it should be discussed where it will be found and where it makes sense. Geogre 13:05, 15 May 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Delete. A globally-focused organization with 31 registered members and not mentioned anywhere else on the web? It's a good idea, but they don't belong in Wikipedia until somebody outside their oganization notices them. --TenOfAllTrades (talk/contrib) 19:08, 15 May 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thank you for supporting the vision of iHUB.
We realize that at this point we might not have enough credibility.
But we are mentioned on Trent University Daily News Page. This is important, because we are acknowledged at Trent.
Further, I should mention that WikiPedia holds articles not only about organizations. For example take any existing word. “iHUB” was not mentioned anywhere in WikiPedia before.
WikiPedia is described by its founder Jimmy Wales as "an effort to create and distribute a free encyclopedia of the highest possible quality to every single person on the planet in their own language." Our organization is not a fraud, but a grassroots effort, which sooner or later works and achieves its objectives. Therefore, it IS worthwhile mentioning in this great project. On YOUR decisions will depend how fast we will be able to spread our message across and make a change.
