NethServer in Wikipedia


#1

Hello,

I was looking in Wiipedia all firewall distributions…
Here:

And Nethserver isn’t here. :unamused:
Is someone here have a login account on Wikipedia to complete this page? :grinning:


(Giacomo Sanchietti) #2

Uh, yes please!


(Alessio Fattorini) #3

Great idea I think, please someone do it! It could be worth a sticker :smile: :gift:

I do agree that NS should have an own page on wikipedia. However, be aware of the wikipedia stasi (=old school moderators) I have been working on Zentyal wiki page and got all my contributions reversed/deleted by some mod that thought my contributions were too ‘colored’.
Because of this, I have very much problems with wikipedia as a platform. As long the moderation is biased as it is now, I don’t see the effort is worth it. [/biased rant]

Do you have an account to complete the linked paged

I added NethServer to the list. Hope the wikipedia nazi’s will allow the addition…
Now a dedicated NethServer page needs to be created. Who want to take this on? (or maybe do a team effort…)

Thank you @robb,

Just a little precision, Nethserver is only X86-64, not x86, x86-64

Fixed it.
Already saw the first revision from the wikipedia nazi’s: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Linux_distributions#RHEL-based
NethServer was removed from the table after I added it… Wikipedia is such a pain… :-/

Anyway. Who wants to work on a NethServer page on wikipedia?
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NethServer should be created.

We’re here too: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_router_and_firewall_distributions

@alefattorini: That’s the entry I added :wink:


(Alessio Fattorini) #11

Is there any volunteer for creating a comprehensive page? :smile:

May i suggest to split sections among different community members?


(Rob Bosch) #15

By all means! Go ahead and pick your cherries. If you want to do a part, please do so.

I’ve started listing features and apliccations, and add point to the index,
this is my first wikipedia experience, so i’m playing around and writing
down some thoughts
