Wikipedia Article for Akaunting

Seth Falco   ( User )

I drafted up a small Wikipedia article for Akaunting since I noticed no one made one yet, I wanted to email gov.uk and ask them to review Akaunting to include on the list of endorsed accounting software available here: https://www.gov.uk/company-filing-software/filing-annual-accounts-returns-and-tax-accounts

And thought existing on Wikipedia might be handy before to centralize a bit of information on Akaunting.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:Akaunting

If anyone has anything to contribute, feel free to add something relevant.
I was mostly just wondering would the copyright holder of the Akaunting logo be willing to do the edit and submit the logo/screenshot for use on the Wikipedia article?

Hello Syed,

It seems Wikipedia has deleted that page :(

Yeah, unfortunately. :c

I believe it's because I accidentally wrote it too subjectively, I have a note on my Trello to attempt to rewrite what I had as well as gather more information from your blog or external posts to show it's very notable as I do firmly believe it deserves a place on Wikipedia.

If you don't mind, I've love to update this post when or if it's finally accepted as is, and then perhaps a logo could be uploaded.

A Wikipedia editor has once again removed it and said that I am "unambiguously" making it purely for promotional purposes, and there is "clearly" a conflict of interest (i.e. being paid or affiliated with Akaunting Inc.).

They also said that Akaunting is not notable enough as SourceForge (Project of the Month) is the only notable place it exists outside of pages Akaunting Inc. controls (Crowdin/GitHub/Akaunting), the guidelines dictate at least 3 external and verifiable sources.

I've personally lost interest in trying to make the page due to the former point, regarding notability, I don't see too many articles from other sources discussing it unfortunately so fair enough there.

The page below is the WIP, if someone else wants to pick it up and feels they can add more to it to make it less promotional, and add more external sources to demonstrate its notability.
(Not someone on the Akaunting team however.)
