Please don't delete my work. I've been putting hours on writing this page. However, I have to emphasize that I'm not trying to promote aNobii.com through Wikipedia. I write on aNobii because it's Hong Kong's Web2.0 representative and it's been mentioned in "The New York Times" and "Business2.0". As to the Hong Kong people, aNobii.com means much more than just a web site. If there's any formatting error, please advice me and I'd correct it right away. Thanks. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by RKenshin (talk • contribs)11:59, 26 June 2007 (UTC).
- I'm not an administrator, but thank you for your contribution. The simplest way to show ANobii is "notable" by Wikipedia's definition (see Wikipedia:Notability (web)) is to cite the articles you've mentioned on the page itself. If you add a sentence or two about what the NYT and Business2.0 said about the site, that should keep the page from speedy deletion. EALacey 12:10, 26 June 2007 (UTC)
- I'm not great with the Wikipedia reference-style for internet links, so the NYT article is here. if someone could get that formatted and stuff, it could help with the "notability." I must add that it is only mentioned once in the article as an alternative to LibraryThing. --Rockymountains 16:58, 15 August 2007 (UTC)Rockymountains
- Update - it seems to be gaining in notability in recent months, considering the acquisition by HMV Group and significant increase in users. -download ׀ talk 01:18, 10 June 2011 (UTC)
Comment from developer of LibraryThing.com
Although my site competes with Anobii, I think this page should be retained. Sure, it's less notable that LibraryThing, GoodReads and Shelfari (or their Chinese competitor, Douban), but not by much. It might well become the dominant site; it would be a shame if Wikipedia were to miss that.
- As it stands, this article is terrible. It's written in bad English, and is promotional in character. Anobii would be doing themselves a favor if they asked some of their users to redo it to a higher degree of professionality.
- Removing the screen shot was clearly wrong. Screen shots of public websites are fair use, no matter what.
Obviously, I'm not touching this entry! 126.96.36.199 05:12, 4 September 2007 (UTC)
the best way to rewrite this article
Could the editors of this article please agree on a consistent spelling for its title? Either "aNobii" (which seems to be the official corporate spelling, see here) or the less fancy "Anobii", but not both. Thank you. Dhcmrlchtdj (talk) 13:14, 28 December 2011 (UTC)
