Sorry Michael but using Google I can't find any link to the crowdfunding page.

I think it's a joke, Tom.

I thought Wikipedia was an encyclopaedia, not a business directory...

Trying to restart the draft Sep 29

Hello,

After creating the French page (I encourage the other translators here to do the same in other languages), I am trying to restart the EN one. I want to do that in collaboration with WP editors. I contacted all those who previously declined the submission.

There is no point in being aggressive with them, that will bring us nowhere. What is important now is to reach a point where we can have a minimal page, factual, without boasting, that can be accepted.

Hello,

After creating the French page (I encourage the other translators here to do the same in other languages), I am trying to restart the EN one. I want to do that in collaboration with WP editors. I contacted all those who previously declined the submission.

There is no point in being aggressive with them, that will bring us nowhere. What is important now is to reach a point where we can have a minimal page, factual, without boasting, that can be accepted.

There were two issues with the page:
1) Notability. We need to find independent sources of references, that comply with WP criteria, whether we think they date from last century or not. I added one reference to an academic paper so far, listing CTE as "one of the major players in the field of CAT tools". Let's find others.
2) Boasting, trying to sell, etc. This is easy to avoid. While still trying to demonstrate notability, we need to avoid writing judgement of values (the best, the most used, etc.).

I am perhaps an incorrigible optimist, but I want to believe we can find a way through.
