Re: Help needed: Wikipedia page deletedby
I am really confused as to why of this decision. I was using this page as a reference for my customer prospects as well as the main Odoo website.
How is it that Microsoft, Netsuite, or even smaller private companies like LivePerson have a Wikipedia page?
What is the difference?

within wikipedia there needs to be some kind of validation for such statement. an opinion will not do. you will need an outsider paper - preferably an article in a respected magazine. wikipedia strives to be opinion-neutral, so perhaps you can help them validating the above statement?hope this helps,best regards, Ron@ Alexandre:
This sentence says it all: "Our Odoo page on Wikipedia has been deleted...."
your email address and signature indicate you are an employee of Odoo S.A. ... well ... don't you get it?
I am not a wikipedia activist nor expert but I'd just say it's an encyclopedia and the nature of an encyclopedia is not that commercial Companies right articles about themselves and their products.
so, I guess that was totally justified it got pulled. Strangely you seem to feel treated unfair. I also I am not 100% sure whether you should expect help from the community mailing list in this.
