"Curated" list of PaaS providers[edit]

A claim has been made that the list of PaaS providers is "curated" whereas I see entries that are not necessarily so notable. What are the criteria for inclusion, how are they applied and how are other editors to know of them? How do we justify the inclusion of each entry in the list that does not have an article? Also, I do not think we should be linking to external sites directly from the article. We can use references to do that but it's inappropriate and promotional to do so in the article.

If you're going to remove external links, you also need to remove the AppFog and SlipStream entries as well. Leaving these in makes it look like this was a targeted (not neutral) removal. That's not to say you meant for it to look this way, but it can be misconstrued as such. RogueSly Talk 00:51, 6 June 2013 (UTC)

Marketing page!? Someone just clean it up![edit]

This page is almost nothing more than a marketing exercise, completely unsuitable for Wikipedia! Someone trim the heck out of it and get rid of all those unsubstantiated marketing claims.

I'd do it myself but I'm sure someone would just undo my changes. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:06, 17 July 2013 (UTC)

Fixed broken link - then someone undid it to go back to the broken link[edit]

I changed the open platform as a service inventor interview link to go to a cached page of the article as the original link is no longer up. Someone undid it. I think it makes more sense to have the working link than a dead link :) — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:23, 1 October 2013 (UTC)


This notice is to disclose that I, User:Bernie44, was paid to revise this entry, which I did on January 23, 2014. I believe it is greatly improved. Of course, I claim no ownership over it. Whether paid or not, I always aim to contribute positively to Wikipedia and to edit within Wikipedia's guidelines, with properly sourced, neutral, constructive edits. I hope my work is judged based on those standards.--Bernie44 (talk) 21:19, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

Blacklisted Links Found on Platform as a service[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected links on Platform as a service which have been added to the blacklist, either globally or locally. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed or are highly inappropriate for Wikipedia. The addition will be logged at one of these locations: local or global If you believe the specific link should be exempt from the blacklist, you may request that it is white-listed. Alternatively, you may request that the link is removed from or altered on the blacklist locally or globally. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. Please do not remove the tag until the issue is resolved. You may set the invisible parameter to "true" whilst requests to white-list are being processed. Should you require any help with this process, please ask at the help desk.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:

    Triggered by \bmarketsandmarkets\.com\b on the local blacklist
