POV?[edit]

The format is good, but it seems that it might be something of an ad for the product. Maethordaer (talk) 01:50, 27 October 2008 (UTC)



Maethordaer, what kind of information would you propose to add/remove to make this page better?

The project is open-source and free. It's not a commercial software. If you check the "Other Software" section items, you'll see real commercial software with description that is not better and having not any 'special' tags for 'neutrality' Another example could be 'http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Total_Commander' - also not open source and not free.

Thanks for looking into this, Mfursov. This is a case actually where I didn't know how to assess the subject's notability or neutrality. I thought it sounded very positive and perhaps a little suspicious, but seeing as I wasn't in any way familiar with the topic I wasn't sure. Usually I look at the article's talk page and history to see what others think so that I can get a better feel for things, but I stumbled across this doing new page patrol, so it didn't have much history for me to judge. That's why I chose the pov-check tag (and not the pov tag): that way someone who would be familiar with the topic would be able to review and decide, which is what you did - thanks! :-) That being said, all Wiki articles need to be adequately sourced (unless it's a stub), just as the articles that this one links to do, so I'm going to reestablish that tag. This is for the good of the article: if we can get references, then it will be less likely that some other editor will think it's non-notable. Maethordaer (talk) 21:05, 30 October 2008 (UTC)

Maethordaer, here are links to UGENE from different well-known sites: http://hmmer.janelia.org http://revu.ubuntuwire.com/details.py?package=ugene

I think now we can omit this warning: "This article needs sources or references that appear in reliable, third-party publications." ? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 212.17.10.114 (talk) 13:16, 18 December 2008 (UTC)
