Contested deletion[edit]

This article should not be speedily deleted for lack of asserted importance because it talks about a product that is well-used in the open source community. — Cosenal (talk) 17:41, 31 October 2011 (UTC)

Re: Speedy deletion[edit]

I removed the speedy deletion request from this page. The user that added it is known to abuse this process.

Perhaps before anyone else feels like doing it again, it can be discussed civilly here. gh5046 (talk) 23:48, 31 October 2011 (UTC)

Synchronization between servers[edit]

"So that ownCloud justifies the term cloud, synchronization between different ownCloud servers is being worked on."

Is there a source for this? Is this planned for owncloud 5 ? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:05, 25 November 2012 (UTC)

Motivation section[edit]

The Motivation section is irrelevant , redundant and anachronic . Irrelevant, because the software have nothing to do with the NSA, this software by itself does not prevents external surveillance . Redundant, because the NSA surveillance is just an special case of privacy and control concerns, the original motivation of this software already predates that. Anachornic since the original motivation predates the NSA scandal. Is there any good argument to not delete that section? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Alsamuef (talkcontribs) 14:38, 5 October 2013 (UTC)

Release Version & Date[edit]

Changed 5.0.13 to 5.0.12 because software was at the time still at 5.0.13 Release Candidate, not in stable version — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:18, 6 November 2013 (UTC)

Being bold: tidied up[edit]

Hi, I've re-written things a bit in order for them to be better understood by ordinary people, introduced some structure, and added a few secondary sources. I've now removed the quality tags because of that. I think the "features" section might also need deleting if we are to avoid further accusations of the article sounding like an advertisement, but I'll leave that to others to decide. --gilgongo (talk) 18:45, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

What has this got to do with KDE?[edit]

It seems the only connection ownCloud has with KDE is that it was written by somebody who was a KDE developer. I'm not sure it's relevant to call a cross-platform web application "related" to KDE is it? --gilgongo (talk) 18:50, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

"ownCloud" or "OwnCloud"?[edit]

Is the name really "ownCloud"? Isn't it "OwnCloud"? --Mortense (talk) 20:15, 6 April 2015 (UTC)

everywhere case is used on the web site, it is rendered "ownCloud"
WP:MOSTM states it should be OwnCloud on Wikipedia. (talk) 10:14, 19 August 2015 (UTC)
Hi. I see no such thing on WP:MOSTM. MOSTM says "trademarks rendered without any capitals are capitalized" like "Adidas" instead of "adidas". But "iPod" and "eBay" are deemed okay in it. If I am missing something, please feel free to quote.
Best regards,

Bad crypto in the Owncloud encryption module[edit] • 11:08, 11 April 2016 (UTC)

A separate article about Nextcloud or a sub-heading in the ownCloud page?[edit]

You probably already know about it. If not, google it. ownCloud's founder left and made a new (forked) project - Nextcloud. Should there be another, new article for nextcloud or maybe a subheading in this one? Apparently there's already a page on the German Wikipedia — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:50, 15 July 2016 (UTC)

Is own cloud free?[edit]

The page currently said that owncloud is free, when I checked on google app store, it was 99 cent, this is not free software.

--Guillcote (talk) 06:10, 16 December 2016 (UTC)

The server software and clients for other operating systems are available for free. The article should mention that apps for Android and IOS are not free.  —jmcgnh(talk) (contribs) 07:16, 16 December 2016 (UTC)
