Article name[edit]

So, I'm a bit confused as to how this article got lowercased TWICE without any entry in the move log for either move. Or why, it is an acronym after all! —SamB (talk) 22:45, 15 April 2015 (UTC)

Shouldn't it be all caps? Rlk89 (talk) 21:19, 17 May 2017 (UTC)

Better example?[edit]

As described in the intro, the real power of Ajax is that "it allows web pages, and by extension web applications, to change content dynamically without the need to reload the entire page".

The current example has the advantage of being absolutely minimal, but the disadvantage is that it does not demonstrate the real power or common use of the technology, ie modifying just part of a web page dynamically without needing to reload the entire page.

There are many better examples out there which are just a little more complex but demonstrate a more real life use of Ajax - for example: http://www.w3schools.com/ajax/tryit.asp?filename=tryajax_first

In the above example, we start with a web page, then make an Ajax request to the server and use the response to modify part of the page.

How about changing the example, or adding a second example? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Camerojo (talkcontribs) 12:15, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

compare/contrast with WebSockets?[edit]

I'm no expert on this stuff, but it seems to me that AJAX is (to some extent) being superseded by WebSockets, so it seems to me that some comparison could be provided here. (But I don't know nearly enough to even take a stab at writing it.) —Steve Summit (talk) 20:59, 3 March 2016 (UTC)

Logo?[edit]

So some guy created a pretty logo and that was enough to put it on Wikipedia like it's official logo of some idea??? Can I make a logo for prime number? That page doesn't have a logo yet. 5.12.180.218 (talk) 01:48, 25 March 2016 (UTC)

Yeah, since when is AJAX a brand? Can I also create a logo for functional programming because I like it? Or how about an "official" logo for for method chaining? Or arrays?

Maintenance and rating of JavaScript articles[edit]

Concerning editing and maintaining JavaScript-related articles...

Collaboration...[edit]

If you are interested in collaborating on JavaScript articles or would like to see where you could help, stop by Wikipedia:WikiProject JavaScript and feel free to add your name to the participants list. Both editors and programmers are welcome.

Where to list JavaScript articles[edit]

We've found over 300 JavaScript-related articles so far. If you come across any others, please add them to that list.

User scripts[edit]

The WikiProject is also taking on the organization of the Wikipedia community's user script support pages. If you are interested in helping to organize information on the user scripts (or are curious about what we are up to), let us know!

If you have need for a user script that does not yet exist, or you have a cool idea for a user script or gadget, you can post it at Wikipedia:User scripts/Requests. And if you are a JavaScript programmer, that's a great place to find tasks if you are bored.

How to report JavaScript articles in need of attention[edit]

If you come across a JavaScript article desperately in need of editor attention, and it's beyond your ability to handle, you can add it to our list of JavaScript-related articles that need attention.

Rating JavaScript articles[edit]

At the top of the talk page of most every JavaScript-related article is a WikiProject JavaScript template where you can record the quality class and importance of the article. Doing so will help the community track the stage of completion and watch the highest priority articles more closely.
