Let me know if there is anything else you want me to do with the Fabulous.com article, ok? Should I add a "people" section? I think you took that section out of the MarkMonitior article.

Also worked on the eNom article. made it more neutral (I see what you mean!) and deleted some of the more superfluous sentences. Changed the placement of the logo too, but left everything else. Wasn't sure if I should take anything else out.

Not sure if you saw my post from earlier, still getting used to this "talk" feature. Please see below:

Templates

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

We're going to have to create our own, methinks. TedErnst 17:52, 23 September 2010 (UTC)

Info Box

When I was talking about MarkMonitor and the info box, I meant that I tried on that article and the code from wikipedia doesn't always quite work here, they have templates set up. You'll have to look at it through the "edit" feature, but this is the code for an infobox (taken from Yahoo! article):

Template:Infobox company

There is a bunch of extra stuff that we don't need in it, but you get the idea. I started adding references too, but same deal there. I can't use the nice clean code from Wikipedia because we don't have a "references" template. Started manually putting some in as best I could. You can see some on MarkMonitor. Am I missing something? Sorry to be a bother. Mcornelius

Dotster

I think happy hour is important because, sometimes people know that there is some company that offers free domains, but they do not know what is the offer called or which company does it, moreover sometimes people would search on google about happy hour, without knowing anything about dotster if they want to get free domains ( I hope you are getting me). That part you are talking about are copied words of clint, The CEO (it is mentioned there), they are not very important we can erase that part. The only thing that I think should be added to the article is the packages offered by dotster, I was not sure if it is important to add this sort of information or not.

Template:Reflist

Looks like we need to install an extension. Unknown extension tag "references" TedErnst 17:45, 23 September 2010 (UTC)

Company links

Ray, What do you think about linking to Wikipedia for companies referenced here with no particular ICANN role? TedErnst 19:39, 24 September 2010 (UTC)

Makes Sense to me Ray

Heyyyy! It looks great! Thank you for putting it up!Mcornelius

uploading image fail

Got this message: The upload directory (public) is not writable by the webserver. TedErnst 16:28, 27 October 2010 (PDT)

I have no idea what that is ... were you just trying to upload an image? Ray
Yes. TedErnst 16:51, 27 October 2010 (PDT)
Sheesh, you're right, i get the same now too, let me check into it Ray

people template draft

Example: Jonathon Nevett It still needs work. I'm clear about that. What's the highest priority for you? What about after that? Sizing? Other fields? Column width and balance? Icon placement (where?)? TedErnst

Okay, so more examples before making changes? I just made that one example so far. I'll make a few more, if you like. TedErnst
Here's another example: Sarah Akhtar. Do we have any more people? Those are the only two in the people template. TedErnst
