Notability[edit]

This does not meet criteria for http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Criteria_for_speedy_deletion#A7 as it is about a new of software.

Merge proposal[edit]

Concern has been raised by an editor on Talk:Laconica as to whether it is notable enough for an article. I think it would be better suited as part of this article, not least because I have heard it will probably be renamed to "Identi.ca" as well. — Hex (❝?!❞) 23:26, 20 December 2008 (UTC)

I haven't been able to add criticism[edit]

I added some criticism about Wikipedia. Some things I came across, while I researched about Identi.ca for my own. So I added it. It got removed, because of the lack of references. I haven't added them, because I did my research in other languages. I made a note about that it needs more references. Later I added some references. Some things from the original site. I 'claimed' there were some 'remove me' accounts, so I added links to them of references, so everyone can see this is true. I 'claimed' that you can only remove your account by directly contacting the admin. As reference, I added the official Wiki stating this, as well as a blog and an ask-like website. Besides this I verified this myself - I know and understand, why this isn't valid, but I just want you to know it is true. The paragraph got removed "The notability of this weasel-word-heavy section is unsupported by any reliable sources. Removing." Okay, maybe it weasel-word-heavy. So, why don't you fix it? However, the argument that there are no reliable sources is simply not true. It's a fact and besides some website the official wiki confirms it. Notability? It seems Identi.ca is the only social network without an option to remove an account, which does make a difference when everyone complains about everything staying online forever in social networks. Yes, maybe the quality was bad. So it would be nice, if someone with more experience could write this. I just wanted to give some feedback and so I give up. Good luck to all future editors! --212.17.86.234 (talk) 11:50, 3 June 2010 (UTC)

Hi. The question is, is this actually criticism? Is it notable criticism I guess is what I mean. Has this been covered in third party sources? That would be the key thing for me. Dbrodbeck (talk) 12:35, 3 June 2010 (UTC)

infobox: licence?[edit]

Most software has licence info in infoboxes, can we put licence info on the identica/reddit/etc. infoboxes too? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Kiwibird (talkcontribs) 12:28, 18 May 2009 (UTC)

 Done. I modified {{Infobox Website}} to have a "content license" parameter, and have added it to this article. — Hex (❝?!❞) 11:34, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

Language : only english since the migration to pump.io — Preceding unsigned comment added by 178.238.166.143 (talk) 18:47, 22 August 2013 (UTC)

 Done, thanks. --AVRS (talk) 11:38, 23 August 2013 (UTC)

Did identi.ca change in 2013 to a promotional tool for pump.io?[edit]

I've only visited the site a half dozen times, but I thought I used to be able to go to identi.ca and search for friends or topics etc. Now all I see is a big notice about pump.io. Am I remembering wrong? If not, this should be noted in the article (beyond the current note about using pump.io). Gronky (talk) 19:11, 1 October 2013 (UTC)
