Let us know if you would like any links to sources. Anyone is able to create the article and anyone can edit it.

Yeah, our first one got deleted for lack of sources since the only references we had were our own sites.

To write one that won't get deleted, it needs some reliable third party sources and probably shouldn't be written by our staff either.

Please do not PM me for support. Posting on our forums lets all of us learn.

This pagge has been deleted.

The point of this post is that the wikipedia page HelioHost doesn't exist and if anyone is willing and experienced in writing wikipedia articles we would greatly appreciate them writing an article about us.

We've been in business since 2005 providing free webhosting and as far as we know we're the only 501c3 non-profit webhosting orginization in the world. The wikipedia trolls didn't argue with us being notable. Our article just had too much information, and most of that information was from internal sources like interviews with the founder. We've had thousands of reviews written about us over the years, both good and bad. Academic thesis papers have been written about us. There's a book that has a whole chapter about us. The sources are out there, but the wikipedia folks want someone other than me to write it.

Can you provide the original draft?, it will be better than writing from scratch.
Also, it will be nice to create a page on our wiki's sandbox with the draft so that we can collaborate there.

And also links to the things you mentioned (if they are not linked in the draft.)

Here is the raw copy/paste from wikipedia. Obviously they have a lot of plugins and stuff that we don't so all of the <ref> tags and stuff don't work, but if you view the source the links are all in there. http://wiki.helionet...lioHost_History

That would be amazing! While we had a wikipedia article we received a lot more traffic to our site. The more traffic we receive the more ad revenue we make, and the more revenue we make the sooner we can buy new servers and improve our service. Let us know if you have any questions. You can't use what our admin say as sources, but you can verify information and make sure it's accurate.

As a thank you for your work, anyone who publishes a reasonable attempt at a HelioHost article on wikipedia.org will receive double the storage space on their account. 2 gb total instead of just 1 gb. If the article survives one month or more without getting deleted you will receive 5 gb storage. These are permanent upgrades that will exist for the life of your account.

For anyone else, this is the previous talk page of `w/HelioHost: https://en.wikipedia...etion/HelioHost

As a note to everyone: general heliohost reviews (Like mine: https://freevps.us/thread-21109.html) are great sources but we need (more?) news related to only certain events of the heliohost history page.

Krydos, what would you like us to write on the article? Im willing to spend a bit of time on it but was wondering weather you are able to give me a few points to start me off!

Thanks,
Bailey

I've been on HelioHost for a little while now and have developed some of the web services. I use PHP, JavaScript, CSS, HTML, Python & more to develop my websites and apps over at Bailey.guru.
I maintain the wiki, GitHub and the Discord server along with other projects located on GitHub.

Here's the article I wrote http://wiki.helionet...lioHost_History but their main complaint was it had too much information. Just use the independent sources in my article and write a small simple paragraph or two that only references information that can be verified by an unbiased third party. The main thing is you can't use helionet.org and our news posts as sources, and I can't be the one to write it.

We just got a great new source for our wikipedia article!

https://www.hostinga...knit-community/

This is exactly the sort of "independent reliable published secondary sources" that wikipedia is looking for.

This is an archive of the deleted Wikipedia page without the HTML tags inseted in the text:

http://deletionpedia.org/en/HelioHost

 

Wikipedia Drafts may be an option to prepare for publishing a new page:

https://en.wikipedia...ikipedia:Drafts

 

Or not (but I'd be inclined to ignore this user):

https://en.wikipedia..._use_draftspace

 

Just in case it helps.
