Asking for article reviews[edit]

How does one add an article to the list of articles for review? I've just added Draft:NewNode Drhealthcaredata (talk) 19:49, 24 August 2020 (UTC)

Please make full use of Template:Decrease for websites' Alexa rank[edit]

Greetings!

Alas I don't have time to personally join your worthy project, but I still wanted to give you a small heads-up (kinda cross-posting this from WikiProject Websites, so hopefully more people see it):

Template:Decrease, which produces these nice red & green arrow-thingys indicating a rank change (Increase & Decrease), actually also has options for negative increase Negative increase {{IncreaseNegative}} and positive decrease Positive decrease {{DecreasePositive}}.

These should be used whenever there is a ranking in which - like e.g. in sports - 1st place is best, and higher numbers worse.

This is used as intended in a number of Wikipedia articles, but notably not in the vast majority of websites which have an Alexa rank. But Alexa ranks are like that - the lower, the better!

So to avoid confusion for the reader, I strongly suggest to henceforth use the proper pointing arrow on all Alexa rankings (and also on all other applicable rankings).

I tried to update a few articles to use this by hand, but I could not find a way to correct all instances automatically. If there is one, I'd love to know how to use it. --LordPeterII (talk) 18:38, 14 August 2020 (UTC)

Internet Society History[edit]

Hi WikiProject Internet editors: I am looking for editors interested in the Internet to review a request at Talk:Internet Society. I proposed updates to the article's History section. The draft removes content that is either unsourced or relies solely on primary sources; adds sourcing where possible; eliminates some redundancy; and adds new content. I work at the Internet Society, so I have a conflict of interest that I've previously disclosed. Can anyone help? Thank you. Neville at Internet Society (talk) 13:32, 6 October 2020 (UTC)

"Internet" vs. "internet"[edit]

FYI – Pointer to relevant discussion elsewhere.

Please see Talk:Internet#Request for comment: should "internet" be capitalized as a proper noun?
There's some debate there about the difference between "the Internet" and "an internet", about what a proper name is, and about whether news style guides (cf. WP:NOT#NEWS policy) should be considered reliable for how to write about technical topics.  — SMcCandlish ¢ 😼  14:35, 26 October 2020 (UTC)

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)
