eNom

Weird, I tried to move it from ENom to eNom, but apparently, it requires that the first letter be capitalized...

Style of article

Miranda, one of the objectives is for the new articles to look more like an article would on Wikipedia, vs. how it looked on ICANNWiki.org, so don't be afraid to change the format to match what company articles on Wikipedia are like Ray

Not sure if you'll see this. Are you changing stuff while I'm changing stuff? - M

Yes, that's the wonder of wiki :-) You can alert me by leaving a message on my talk page, give it a try. Ray

Categories

by adding the category "Companies" text on the bottom of the page (actually anywhere works, but bottom is the convention), the article you are working on will show up in the list of companies -- which you can now see from the Main Page Ray

PS: I re-edited your change, but don't take offense, this is how wiki is, we do things and show each other as we do them

That's fine. I just kept losing my work earlier and I thought I was going crazy. I use the preview option a lot and I thought I kept forgetting to save. : P

yipes, saving a lot is fine, don't worry about it. I never use preview ...

eNom Article

Miranda,

Can you make a stab at making the eNom article more "Neutral" in tone? This article may help: NPOV article on Wikipedia. You don't need to read it all... Check out the eNom article on Wikipedia too.
