Notability in question[edit]

The Open Knowledge Foundation is a growing body which has very similar aims to Wikipedia and other Open Knowledge projects. Gordo (talk) 11:49, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

I would agree, why is someone trying to delete what wikipedia does? The article could do with cleanup and expansion, but it is worthy of retention. At the moment, there is no statement of the significance of the work done by the foundation, and that needs to be explicitly stated. As it stands, it is also somewhat orphaned, that also needs to be addressed. Kbthompson (talk) 12:30, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

Uh thanks for the article. Looks like there are too many references. :-) -- Nichtich (talk) 21:54, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

Desperately needs reliable sources proving it is notable and a rewrite so it's not so spammy. (It also makes it difficult to take them seriously when their tools for determining what is covered by copyright and what is public domain were coming up with responses that were very clearly inaccurate when I checked their validity a while back after someone tried to include them on the public domain article External links section.)

There is some discussion within the Foundation as to whether is is appropriate for members of the organisation to improve the article themselves. Could someone point to the appropriate policy please. --TimClicks (talk) 02:51, 27 April 2011 (UTC)
The WP:CONFLICT page seems the most authoritative. For the record, I am affiliated with the organisation. I'll attempt to add content that satisfies the notability requirement. However, I'll leave others to judge whether I've retained a NPOV and enhanced the POV of the article. -- TimClicks (talk) 03:41, 27 April 2011 (UTC)
After reviewing Template:POV, it seems that reliable third-party sources are what's needed to remove this issue. I believe that I've added a sufficient number to clear the article. Please let me know if there are any residual issues. -- TimClicks (talk) 04:56, 27 April 2011 (UTC)
Having not seen any specific response re notability after extensive additions ~ 10 months ago, I'm going ahead with a removal of the notice. -- User:Rgrp 27th January 2012 —Preceding undated comment added 14:30, 27 January 2012 (UTC).

Replaced, as a footnote, the reference to the presentation with the EFF to the ITU on the failure of DRM. This paragraph was deleted by Rufus Pollock presumably because it might be controversial. However User:Rgrp has a quite obvious conflict of interest here. FringeOkapi (talk) 20:54, 24 September 2011 (UTC)

Brian Proffitt of ITWorld thinks they are important. we have used him as a source a few times. Of course, this is only a brief mention, but he may have written more. I am not affiliated with the org.(mercurywoodrose) (talk) 16:28, 2 October 2011 (UTC)

Removed this from the article, as it's not relevant to article[edit]

Hey #FreeBassel group...I have some information that I would like to see represented by the esteemed Wikipedia. I'm a complete wiki newbie and haven't checked sources exhaustively...but was hoping to just get the topics "Nassim Haramein" and "Resonance Project Foundation" opened up in wikiland, and then the articles could be filled in over time by the growing community. :)

I used to be figure8state on Wikipedia, but I noticed my user page now shows I am permanently blocked for "peristent abuse" or some bs to that effect. You can see my "abuse" in all it's glory at the user page for figure8state (im a little proud haha..good for the posterity). The conversation thread reflected there now on my old user page is different than the original and has been edited by Wikipedia, presumably after I was blocked from history, thats not good. No matter, let's try again.

It also appears that "Nassim Haramein" has been blocked, along with "The Resonance Project".

I hope you can help me to get this important information represented in Wikipedia for the betterment of all. Any help you can lend is much appreciated. Power to the people  :) Striking of talkpage comments made by sockpuppet user, who is now blocked. Joseph2302 (talk) 18:37, 16 March 2015 (UTC)
