@pigsonthewing Is right to remind us of the COI rules, but as long as edits are based on trustworthy sources, meet the notability criteria, and aren’t done by DoES Liverpool employees (all 0.5 of him) or directors, we should be ok.

@goatchurchprime Perhaps as a first step, we could gather together any references to DoES Liverpool’s notability, in this Github thread, so we can prepare the article offline, and then make a good case for its inclusion if challenged?

PS https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Plain_and_simple_conflict_of_interest_guide is a nice clear guide to navigating COI edits on Wikipedia.

I've been collecting some of the times we're mentioned in other articles and press under https://pinboard.in/u:amcewen/t:DoESLiverpool and we're also (according to the index) mentioned on pages 74-75 and 138 of the book Designing the Internet of Things (although that's maybe a slightly less notable resource given @osfameron and I wrote it)

The other relevant Wikipedia policy is: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Notability

which can be summarised thus:

If a topic has received significant coverage in reliable sources that are independent of the subject, it is presumed to be suitable for a stand-alone article or list.
