Relevance section[edit]

I stumbled on this page accidentally and I don't see why the IWW is important at all. An international organization with around 9000 members worldwide doesn't seem like something to write home about or in the Wikipedia. Could somebody perhaps find some information that would explain why this organization matters at all? I'm not saying it doesn't, I'm just saying its Wikipedia page doesn't explain it and it would be nice to have a section for it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:47, 11 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It was really relevant about a century ago, in the modern day it is sort of a husk of it's former self, but in the early 1900s it really got stuff done Jandro22 (talk) 03:27, 26 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Noteable Members who joined after they were already noteable[edit]

Can u really count tom morello and Noam chomsky as notable members if they just joined in solidarity after they were already famous? that's kind of a bastardization of the concept of notable members of things. don't you think? 2A02:20C8:4120:0:0:0:0:A02E (talk) 17:45, 8 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The notable alumni listed for a school are almost always alumni who are notable for some reason unrelated to the school. I don't see a problem with using the same concept here. Gbear605 (talk) 17:52, 8 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
