Highworth Warneford School
Apologies for overwriting your adjustment of the Warneford census date, I thought I had put an incorrect (that turned out to be correct..) date in there originally and didn't check the revision history! Poolybit (talk) 19:24, 22 May 2013 (UTC)
Quick deletion of WebDrive page
I'm trying to track down the reason for the speedy deletion of the Wikipedia page on WebDrive, which is a technology that our company has been developing over the past 15 years. The Wikipedia article has been alive and listed for probably about 8 years and we are constantly trying to keep it updated as the OS world changes.
I respectfully request a re-open on the discussion of WebDrive remarkability as it is a very unique and notable technology. Prior to WebDrive, commercial Virtual File System technology for Microsoft Windows was virtually non-existent in the late 1990's. WebDrive, originally released in 97', changed the way Legacy PC Applications worked and gave new life in the Internet age. WebDrive's Virtual File System technology allows those applications to access data on remote FTP, SFTP, Google Drive, Amazon S3 or WebDAV servers as if the data were local.
While I will agree with you that the majority of the content on the WebDrive page was directly contributed by South River Technologies (talk) 15:01, 10 July 2013 (UTC), that's merely because we have the deepest experience on this proprietary technology. Over the years, other commercial applications have begun to copy our technology, including ExpanDrive, Google Drive, and others. Novell NetDrive is another example although it is WebDrive technology OEM'd by Novell and rebranded for inclusion in NetWare for a while. Even though others are beginning to have similar products that emulate our technology, WebDrive is still the go-to resource for schools, universities and companies looking to extend access to remote data stores.
If there is any other information which I could provide to help illustrate how remarkable and unique WebDrive is in the World, or if you could provide me with some ideas for how we can structure the article to be less sales'ish and more Wiki'ish, that would be helpful.
Got a message.
Hi there, I received a message about putting a link to Hereford or something along those lines. I am on a dynamic IP and didn't leave any such link. There is no point leaving messages for people with dynamic IP's in my opinion. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 20:49, 19 September 2013 (UTC)
