Editor Review Assistance - Fortinet Company Page[edit]

Hello, I’m seeking assistance from qualified editors to review COI edit requests I post on the Fortinet article’s Talk page. Will appreciate anyone leaving a comment here saying it’s okay if I ping them in the future for these requests. At the present time there are 2 open requests. Context: Last year Fortinet became aware a undisclosed paid edits warning label had been placed on the article about “Fortinet” in December 2020 after a sock puppet investigation found 2 accounts had made edits in 2018 as part of a broader campaign. Although Fortinet has hired disclosed paid editors in the past, we were not in a position to make uncontroversial reversions to any suspicious edits. Fortinet has been making COI Edit requests and seeking unbiased, disinterested editors to help improve the article in hopes to see the page’s quality improved per the warning label request to ensure that the Wikipedia community trusts the content there again. We’re hoping some of the editors involved with this Wikiproject will assist. Johnwikiwelton (talk) 19:36, 13 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]


User:Tothwolf/AmIRC, previously at AmIRC, was deleted via AfD and then restored to user space over a decade ago. The user has not edited since 2016. I am wondering if there is a page to which this content could be merged. BD2412 T 19:19, 19 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I will adopt that draft. There are probably dozens of reviews/tutorials for AmIRC in Amiga magazines of the late 1990s. Notability is no issue there. Pavlor (talk) 05:07, 20 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Done. Back in the article namespace. My English is horrible, but I'm sure good people here will anglicize this poor article quite soon. Courtesy note for Jclemens, who moved the deleted article to the user space back in 2011. Pavlor (talk) 17:17, 24 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Much appreciated, thanks for the ping, but I have no special connection to the article, was just something done as an admin at that time. Jclemens (talk) 19:01, 24 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Truth Social frontend app[edit]

Has anyone got any reliable source citations about the internals of the Truth Social app, which is claimed to use the Soapbox front-end? In particular, I'm wondering if it just acts as a captive web browser for a cloud-hosted Soapbox instance, or whether TMTG actually ported Soapbox's Elixir code to iOS?

Please see my comments on the matter at Talk:Truth Social#Soapbox front endThe Anome (talk) 12:41, 22 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

TechnologyOne COI edit requests[edit]

Hi! I've posted some COI edit requests at Talk:TechnologyOne. Sharing in case anyone here is interested in taking a look – these requests have been pending for almost four months, and I'm hoping I've made them as easy/quick to review as possible. Thank you for any help or feedback! Mary Gaulke (talk) 22:07, 4 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Article on PACX terminal switch[edit]

Would this DataPro paper

be suitable for use as a citation for improving the verifiability of the article on the PACXG4ugm (talk) 16:53, 5 June 2022 (UTC)?Reply[reply]

Neos (content management)[edit]

There is consensus to split Neos (content management) from its current parent article, TYPO3. Unfortunately, neither the current section TYPO3#Neos nor the draft supplied by proposer are based on reliable independent sources. Any support would be very welcome! Felix QW (talk) 17:28, 24 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It seems there is already an article Neos Flow. Although I haven't assessed the sources in it, content should probably be merged there. --{{u|Mark viking}} {Talk} 17:35, 24 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Help with Dan Wagner article update[edit]

Hi. Editors of this project might be interested in suggestions to update the article about Dan Wagner (a well-known U.K. tech entrepreneur). The proposals are here: Talk:Dan Wagner#Request Edits April 2022. Since I have a COI, an independent editor or editors must review these. Thanks.W12SW77 (talk) 15:33, 14 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Request to update HubSpot[edit]

Hello! On behalf of HubSpot, I've submitted a request to update the Software and services section. I've proposed specific text additions based on Wikipedia-appropriate sources about some the company's major products, similar to what's already said about HubSpot CRM Free. I've disclosed my conflict of interest and included Template:Request edit, but so far the request has gone unanswered. Might a member of WikiProject Computing be willing to take a look and update the article appropriately? Thanks for your consideration. Inkian Jason (talk) 14:01, 15 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Draft:Compaq IA-1 - as a stand-alone article or section in iPAQ (desktop computer)?[edit]

After browsing computing related drafts, I dicovered Draft:Compaq IA-1 ("internet appliance" of the early 2000s). After brief research, I think I have enough sources to create a short article. However, this machine is also mentioned in the - mostly unsourced - article about IPAQ (desktop computer) (IA-1/IA-2 are based on this hardware). I wonder, is it better to create a new article for "internet appliance" version of IPAQ, or rewrite existing section in the IPAQ (desktop computer) article?
