Tim is not a physicist[edit]

The article says "physicist Tim Berners-Lee" but Tim has never been a physicist, does not claim to be one. He just worked at a physics lab. Pixel Game (talk) 13:14, 29 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I changed it to computer scientist, which is consistent with his bio at Tim Berners-Lee. --ZimZalaBim talk 15:34, 29 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Semi-protected edit request on 16 December 2022[edit]

Creating a website for your business can be a good way to increase your business sales. Websites are a great way to connect with potential customers, showcase your products and services, and advertise your business. Websites are also very versatile, so you can update them on a regular basis and make the changes that it takes to keep them current. Websites are even being used as a marketing tool for a wide variety of businesses, such as restaurants, hotels, and more. A business website is made in the same way as a regular website. The reason for this is that the created website development is designed to be compatible with the CMS software. However, a business website is designed to benefit the business that it is being made for. It is designed to increase the business’s visibility, allow the business to interact with potential customers, improve security, and implement some marketing tactics.

Nothing done, not a request for anything, appears to be a WP:PROMOtional suggestion without the link ;) -Roxy the dog 11:42, 16 December 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Capitalization of the word web[edit]

There has been a slow edit-war on the capitalization of the word web that has been going on since December 6 and no discussion about it, so I thought it might be helpful to start one given that I reverted the most recent push to change this capitalization. I reverted it because the rationale that because World Wide Web is capitalized means that the word web itself is capitalized outside of that name isn't supported by usage in reliable sources. Per MOS:CAPS we should use sources to guide article content, and sources do not capitalize the word web in this way. The word web is not a proper name, and I have to disagree with the idea that it should be capitalized throughout the article. - Aoidh (talk) 20:13, 23 December 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Also to comment on the argument that because Web and World Wide Web capitalize the word that this article should, I've commented on why World Wide Web is not a contributing factor above, but regarding the Web disambiguation page, there is a difference between how a disambiguation page formats entries in a list (MOS:LISTCAPS) and how the word is given in prose in this article; those are not comparable, and Web capitalizing the word does not influence any article's prose. - Aoidh (talk) 20:31, 23 December 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I'm posting this following a comment I made on my talk page a few moments ago, and this topic is the most obvious one to use, rather than a new one as I proposed there. Nor have I changed the article to reflect what I said there, as Aoidh has done further changes. I am very happy to discuss further, but basically agree with what Aoidh has said. - Roxy the dog 22:43, 23 December 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I agree as well that web should not be capitalized in this context. I started reverting these changes weeks ago and then solicited comments at Wikipedia_talk:Manual_of_Style/Capital_letters#Capitalization_of_Web_in_the_Website_article to get more opinions since the editor trying to capitalize this doesn't seem eager to collaborate.

Hi, Aoidh. Do you understand what Tim Berners-Lee represents to this discussion? If so, is his W3C Biography page reliable enough for you? Or maybe his specific answer addressing the capitalization issue? You don't know Berners-Lee? Well, what if we check how the IETF use the word? Is their Semantics and Content RFC for HTTP any good for your reliable evaluation of the case? Regards, M. B., Jr. (talk) 02:25, 24 December 2022 (UTC)[reply]
You seem to be conflating "World Wide Web" and "The Web" (shorthand for the World Wide Web) with website and web page and other instances of the word web. Even the page you cited uses a lowercase w in web when not referring to "the Web". Personal opinions submitted via an obsolete IETF proposal is not a compelling source either, especially when the IETF itself doesn't capitalize web in this way. While I'm sure you could dig up some sources that do capitalize web in this way, the vast majority do not. The W3C (the standards organization for the World Wide Web), Mozilla, University of Washington,, Merriam Webster, the APA, Oracle, even the pages you cited use the lowercase "web" when not referring to "the Web" (and when they capitalize it this way, they make it clear by specifically using "the" in "the Web" as shorthand never just "Web"). Sources simply do not support the change to uppercase. - Aoidh (talk) 03:56, 24 December 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Team-B-Vital Improvement Drive[edit]

Hello all!

This article has been chosen as this fortnight's effort for WP:Discord's #team-b-vital channel, a collaborative effort to bring Vital articles up to a B class if possible, similar to WP:Articles for Improvement. This effort will run for up to a fortnight, ending early if the article is felt to be at B-class or impossible to further improve. Articles are chosen by a quick vote among interested chatters, with the goal of working together on interesting Vital articles that need improving.

Thank you! Remagoxer (talk) 22:54, 11 January 2023 (UTC)[reply]
