Talk:Vanilla (forum)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

WTF? This Wikipedia entry reads like free advertising for the hosted Vanilla Forum service, particularly the section "Features" which mostly talks about the commercial service, not the free product. I expected information about the open source edition of Vanilla Forum, i.e. the free product, not the commercial business behind it. 178.83.239.67 (talk) 15:35, 18 November 2012 (UTC)

Keep, But Edit[edit]

Value: This article quickly answered a lot of head-scratching questions I had about Vanilla.

Notability: Vanilla apparently manages half-a-million forums worldwide, it is independently recognized as a significant player.

Writing: Poor, self-promotional in some places. Edit. ("Delete and make them rewrite from scratch" is a terrible policy, it's easier to prune than plant a whole new tree.)

Funded by...[edit]

It is quite normal in an encyclopedia, whether in a portal, or not, to mention all aspect of the entry.

Like many OS project Vanilla is partly funded by SaaS, which is the hosted solution.

I think on balance it now mentions the OS Vanilla in good measure.

I should point out anything not distributed the licence is moot. It is only some licences like AGPL that say otherwise.

So Vanilla is an open source code base funded by a non-distributed implementation. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 87.115.115.202 (talk) 15:18, 24 July 2013 (UTC)
