Advogato templates for Wikipedians[edit]

If you have an Advogato account and want to network with other Wikipedians who are also members of that site, I've created some templates Template:User_advogato-0, Template:User_advogato-1 etc which should be self-explanatory. They take one parameter, which is the Advogato username. Thus for an apprentice with an account called "fredbloggs", put this on your user page: {{User advogato-1|fredbloggs}}

== Srainwater 22:38, 1 August 2007 (UTC) I corrected a couple of inaccurate statements related to the trust metric. Dislaimer: I'm the current maintainer of Advogato.

Notability[edit]

The article needs to better explain why advogato, mod_virgule & sites that experiment with genuinely new ideas are worthwhile, but at this stange I think it is foolish to slap on notability notices without making the case beforehand on the talk page. --- Charles Stewart(talk) 12:29, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

Zooko's assertion of notability[edit]

Advogato is historically important because of its implementation of the trust metric. I came to the wikipedia just now because I needed to cite advogato in a conversation about computer science. Therefore, it is sufficiently notable and should not be deleted. --Zooko 2008-08-15
Added as subsection. Zooko is presumably Zooko, who has long been involved in the discussion of the ideas behind advogato. --- Charles Stewart(talk) 12:29, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

To me, the article establishes its notability quite well. It explains how the site was the first in a notable area and the participation of notable members of the FOSS community. I'm removing the notice, and I agree with Chalst. If anyone feels it still is non-notable, it should be discussed here, as we have three separate members agreeing that it is notable. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Kyle Maxwell (talkcontribs) 17:36, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

Complaint of inclusion of Mentifex-bashing references[edit]

http://cyborg.blogspot.com/2009/10/trustmetric.html is a rebuttal response by Mentifex to the ill-advised Advogato Has Failed reference cited in the Wikipedia article about Advogato. Posted 206.188.44.249 (talk) 00:11, 7 October 2009 (UTC) by Mentifex

On inspection, the reference appears to be necessary to demonstrate the topic on a more complete spectrum. -download ׀ talk 01:13, 10 June 2011 (UTC)
