Hi Erica,

I noted that you recently deleted the page on Zwiki. We feel that Zwiki deserves a page on Wikipedia because of its widespread usage. We'll try to rephrase the first line to get rid of any advertising speak.

Regards, Frank (on behalf of the Zwiki developers)

Ok, I'll restore it. Please add a notability assertion, that is, why should this have an encyclopedia article? Thanks, Fang Aili talk 14:00, 16 April 2007 (UTC)
Seeing that you visited and renamed the article, I assume you noticed we added content and references. We hope this somehow settles the notion of notability :-) if it doesn't (and I misunderstood the use of the word "assertion" then), please let us know. In any case the deletion of the article helped us unslack and make the article more usefull after all, so thank you! Betabug 14:37, 16 April 2007 (UTC)
Not really, actually. Do you have any stats on how many websites use Zwiki, or how many people use it, something like that? How about some reviews from independent sources? According to Wikipedia:Notability (web), "A notable topic has been the subject of multiple non-trivial published works that are reliable and independent of the subject." I am not trying to be hard on you, and I have no interest in deleting the article again. I'm just trying to help you create a better article. Let me know if I can be of any assistance.
