It's bad form for people to edit their own Wikipedia pages, or those of their employer.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Logos_Bible_Software

But however people feel about Wikipedia as a quality source, it is where many people go for information, and I wish it was up to date with the fact that we've changed our company name and more.

In fact, it's time to split it into two articles -- one for the software and one for Faithlife, the company, which should be at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faithlife -- there's even a discussion on the 'Talk' page about the company/product confusion under the Logos name.

Would you be so kind as to help clean up our page? Adding updated facts, removing out of date or trivial information, creating the Faithlife page and splitting the product and company info... any or all would be appreciated.

(In case you're curious, asking for edits appears to be sanctioned and okay; doing edits when you have a conflict of interest is what's frowned on. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Conflict_of_interest where it even suggests requesting edits via the Talk page... I just don't know if we're prominent enough that people are watching our Talk page!)

If you're so inclined, cite-able sources for recent Faithlife news include:

Randy Simms and I have created a page for Faithlife. The Logos Bible Software page still needs some work.

OK. I've tidied up the Logos Bible Software page too. It would be nice to have a section on "Reception" if anyone wanted to summarise the reviews, from a neutral point of view, of course.

Thousand thanks Mark and Randy!

Now I know what I've bought. I always had to make my own choices, there were not many Bible software users I knew in that time. I started with Libronix SESB in 2008 and last November I bought up L6. Surprising how fast the Logos development has been!

How about the Android application? Is it worth mentioning? I have it on my tablet, and seems to work.

Excellent, Randy and Mark!

I've turned the mention of Faithlife Corporation in the sidebar on the Logos Bible Software page into a link.

looks good - though you forgot verbum. Not sure if noet was on there or not.

I did make one small grammar change.

Under the Bible study magazine section, it said "it is a non-denominational" but then lacked a noun or pronoun for the description. I dropped the a, and made it say "it is non-denominational," instead. Seemed to flow a little better. Probably not perfect.

Mark and/or Rosie,

It was recently brought to our attention that the Logos Bible Software page displays an outdated logo--if you are willing and have a minute to update the page with our new logo, we would be grateful for your assistance! 

The new logo can be downloaded from our Image Gallery.

Thanks!

~Anna
