Performer, video producer, and "bureaucratic wunderkind"[40] Brian David Gilbert of the video game website Polygon cited Gesamtkunstwerk as an inspiration in foundational technique in his rendition of the PokéRAP.[41][42]

oh my god

long, the fight between various wikipedians over whether or not bdg's pokérap belongs on the gesamtkunstwerk article 

it was first added in this revision

someone removed it saying "No reliable secondary source describing these as gesamtkunstwerken or noting why these are relevant to the history of the form"

and then another person called "paintspot" added it back, saying "Found sources establishing all three deleted examples as G.werks"

it was removed because "Brian took inspiration, but his work does not meet definition"

and finally paintspot added it back, saying "Added back well-sourced section - but made it clear that these are works that use G.werk as inspiration."

its beautiful to see this silly bureaucratic back and forth set in stone for all to see on the edit history page

also wikipedia has a semi-official "git blame" equivalent: wikipedia.ramselehof.de/wikibl

it's useful for finding who added a particular thing to an article - you give it an article name and a bit of text from the article, and it tells you who added that particular bit of text and when
