Marlin (firmware)[edit]

I just started Marlin (firmware), I'm not experienced in writing articles about software so if someone could take a look that would be great.

Comparison of content-control software and providers - more input needed[edit]

Two questions have recently come up about 1) the defunct status of K9 without published sources to verify this claim (although it is probably correct), and 2) the inclusion of Kaspersky Safe Kids in this list (although the topic has no Wikipedia article). For the related threads please see Talk:Comparison of content-control software and providers, a bit of additional background info can be found at User talk:GermanJoe - we are trying to use the article talkpage now though. The discussion has been very collegial so far, but would benefit from additional feedback by uninvolved knowledgeable editors. Any input would be appreciated.

There is a request for comment on the Brave (web browser) article:

Should the Brave web browser be classified as a pay-to-surf web browser?

If you are interested, please participate at Talk:Brave (web browser)#Request for comment on "pay to surf" classification. — Newslinger talk 20:21, 26 August 2018 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Xterm[edit]


The article Xterm has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Non-notable software with only "how-to" mentions in tech website articles.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

The article has multiple issues and the subject does not appear to be notable to me. Before nominating the article for AfD, I thought I'd check in here to see if there's an interested in improving the article. Thank you. --K.e.coffman (talk) 03:00, 27 September 2018 (UTC)

I've slapped a notability tag on it to try to bring attention to your concern. I do see coverage of this in industry and scholarly publications so I don't think it deserves to be nominated. WP:NOTCLEANUP, WP:DEMOLISH ~Kvng (talk) 13:59, 29 September 2018 (UTC)


Is this software notable or not? Roger (Dodger67) (talk) 12:22, 15 October 2018 (UTC) Please Roger (Dodger67) (talk) 17:32, 17 October 2018 (UTC)

Need help with a software article[edit]

Hey, I created an article for Zenkit. Because I work there, I have concerns that it will be deleted. I hope you and the community can help by editing the article until it doesn't seem like advertising.

That's the page: Zenkit

Zenkit is a Software for project management and is a real competition for Trello and Wunderlist (it's mentioned in several press magazines). It was launched in 2016 in English language but meanwhile, it's also available in German and other languages. Because it's already in the German Wiki and is used in over 100 countries it needs to be added to the English Wikipedia as well. --Jessica Lu. (talk) 12:32, 22 October 2018 (UTC)
