JSON Meta Application Protocol improvements[edit]

Dear Wikipedians of project Internet. JSON_Meta_Application_Protocol might need some rewrite. If some of you want to take a look at it, that would be great :) .

I hope this is the correct way of reaching out to you. I was pointed at your project by another Wikipedian in Talk:JSON Meta Application Protocol. Jaudriga (talk) 08:16, 23 November 2020 (UTC)

Suggest creation of list article on HTTP authentication/Security access control methods[edit]

There doesn't seem to be any good place on Wikipedia listing the different access control methods such as Basic, Digest, Bearer (JWT, OpenID, Oauth), API keys, HTTP+HTML form-based authentication, TLS-SRP, Secure Remote Password protocol, Kerberos (protocol)/SPNEGO. I gathered them together based upon lists from outside sources and lists inside of Wikipedia on there respective article pages and it seems like as they all try to solve broadly the same problem usually using the same HTTP Header (Authorization: <type> <credentials>) they seem to be a prime candidate for a list article.

Now I have never done article creation before and am not confident that I know enough to properly cover the topic and I am not even confident that I have adequately checked that what I want doesn't already exist (though if it does, I can't find it where I'd expect it) so I would appreciate it if someone else could create it for me. Thank-you. El komodos drago (talk to me) 10:46, 1 December 2020 (UTC)

Requests for MasterClass article[edit]

Hello! My name is Alyssa and I work for the online streaming platform MasterClass. I've disclosed this on my profile and at Talk:MasterClass, where I've proposed some changes to make the article more accurate and up to date. More specifically, I've asked to correct language about the company's founding and remove a sentence which is not specifically confirmed by sourcing. Editor feedback has been limited, so I'm hoping some editors from WikiProject Internet can take a look and update the article for me. Thanks! MC Alyssa (talk) 01:33, 14 January 2021 (UTC)

February Online Edit-a-thon[edit]

The page .eco may need watching and updating. I've rolled it back to the February 2020 version, which does NOT include much if anything regarding the trademark controversy involving Planet .ECO LLC.

Two "connected contributors," likely paid, have attempted to add this material, but in a way that contradicts official information from ICAAN.

There may be a place for information about this controversy in the page, but only if it has received enough independent coverage to be "encyclopedic." In any case, it should be added by someone with no conflict-of-interest.

There may be an argument that the whole topic is non-notable and that it should be redirected to List of Internet top-level domains#E.

While I haven't violated WP:3RR, I am far enough into this back-and-forth that I need to stop and get input from others with no "skin in the game," which is why I'm posting here.

Courtesy ping to JWatTheDotECO, Cabayi, and TheDotECO whose edits were undone by my reversion back to the February 2020 revision. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs) 00:26, 28 January 2021 (UTC)

  • Note to other editors - Davidwr does have a case of one or two new editors who seem to have clear COI continuing to edit and update this page for .eco. It seems that they are with one of the companies that was unsuccessful in bidding for the .ECO top-level domain back when ICANN was going through the newgTLD expansion process. They are now repeatedly editing the .eco page to change it from the correct information about the current operator to instead have information about their company. They seem to be going back and forth a great amount with Davidwr. I have added my support / agreement with Davidwr's suggested path for the page. It would be helpful if some other editors also weighed in at®. Thank you. - Dyork (talk) 01:21, 30 January 2021 (UTC)
  • Request for other editors to participate - As noted above, Davidwr is engaged in an editing situation where another editor with clear COI (as his company name is part of his Wikipedia name) is continuing to argue the page should be about his company. Whenever Davidwr or now myself revert the page back to its original purpose, this editor then reverts the page back to his version promoting his company. We could use the assistance of other editors to help resolve this situation. Please see for the lengthy exchanges - and scroll to the bottom for the current state. Thank you in advance if any of you can assist! - Dyork (talk) 01:30, 4 February 2021 (UTC)

Sandbox Organiser

A place to help you organise your work

Hi all

I've been working on a tool for the past few months that you may find useful. Wikipedia:Sandbox organiser is a set of tools to help you better organise your draft articles and other pages in your userspace. It also includes areas to keep your to do lists, bookmarks, list of tools. You can customise your sandbox organiser to add new features and sections. Once created you can access it simply by clicking the sandbox link at the top of the page. You can create and then customise your own sandbox organiser just by clicking the button on the page. All ideas for improvements and other versions would be really appreciated.

Huge thanks to PrimeHunter and NavinoEvans for their work on the technical parts, without them it wouldn't have happened.

Hope its helpful

Help with article about technology company[edit]

Hello. I’m hoping a member of this group can help out with a few changes I’ve proposed to improve the Cloudflare article at Talk:Cloudflare#Request Edits February 2021. I have a conflict of interest so would like an independent editor to evaluate the proposed edits. Thanks! Ryanknight24 (talk) 18:49, 12 February 2021 (UTC)

Unison Online Service - needs some help, history of the internet?[edit]

This was marked as a stub recently, but has been unsourced and apparently COI since 2009.

I've just put a note on its talk page which I'll copy below:

Having seen this in Category:Stubs I considered nominating it for AfD, as unsourced since forever and initially created with COI (by user "Fdudden", whose only other two edits were to create their user page). But a "BEFORE" search (Dudden Unison) found several non-wiki-mirror mentions of Unison and it looks as if it has a place in the history of networking. Some expert in the field might like to expand this article, or redirect it to somewhere that it's mentioned already.

It seems to have been the platform used by Ecunet, which had an article before being turned into a redirect, but which apparently still exists.

Sources found, verifying its existence, perhaps hardly amounting to notability but probably justifying a mention somewhere in the encyclopedia:

History of the internet, and religious networking, are not my specialist subjects. PamD 09:11, 21 February 2021 (UTC)

PamD (talk · contribs) - Thanks for raising that article. I do have a background in the history of the Internet, but I had not heard of Unison Online Services. I opened a new section on the History of the Internet Talk page to see if anyone might be able to help more. I am also on some "Internet history" email lists and can ask there, too. - Dyork (talk) 02:01, 23 February 2021 (UTC)
