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.

Template

What would you like included in company articles? I looked at some big companies over at Wikipedia (ebay, yahoo, aol), and I see what you mean by "references", but are you going to want to keep the member photo galleries? It seems like they (Wikipedia) only include linked names and titles. Let me know what you think about that. Personally, I think it would look a little more professional just writing them out and it is hard finding pictures for everyone sometimes.

Since I pulled most of my information from the company websites themselves, I might have to go back through mine again and check the NPOV. Are there any other ones you want me to look through specifically? Does the eNom article sound ok, or do I need to push it a little farther?

I did try and play around with the info box when I was working on the MarkMonitor article, but I don't know if it works quite right here. I'll try again though. It's nice that I can look at Wikipedia's source, and pull code from that.

Sorry for the paragraphs! Hope you can help. : P


More thoughts

  • I don't think I deleted the people section in the MarkMonitor article? You can "step thru" the article history to see all of the edits (worthwhile to see how that works anyway).
  • would be great to add an "info box" to the company articles (as you'd see in WikiPedia articles). This takes some formatting, but I think you can follow what Wikipedia has done.
  • would also be great to have some "references" added
  • greater focus on NPOV would be great, we really want the articles to stand out as being NOT written by the companies themselves, but rather by neutral observers.
  • my current goal is to get a small set of articles looking great. Once we have that, it'll be easier to show others what we're looking for and get their help to create additional articles.
