Adding Your Host

Use the following code to add your host:

| [ Host Name] || {{COMMERCIAL}} || {{UNKNOWN}} || {{UNKNOWN}} || Short blurb about your service.

Copy and modify the code above, then insert it into each table that you have servers physically located within. Entries should be in alphabetical order by the name of the host. Edit the columns to match what your service offers. The last field (after the last ||) is used for a comment, so put anything extra-nifty about your service there that isn't expressed well in the other columns.

Use the preview function often, and only save the page when you're triple-checked everything is correct. I myself am guilty of spamming up edits, and in case you're not aware there's a bot on IRC that notifies of every edit, in addition to a huge list of all your mistakes in the history. :)

.. and please try to refrain from putting marketing fluff in the comments, for the benefit of all viewers... that's a really slippery slope to start heading down.

Linking to feature pages

The templates such as {{YES}}, {{NO}}, and {{NONCOMMERCIAL}} can also be used to link to a page explaining how you offer the feature. For example for your RPC service, if it uses a different protocol you might link to the page explaining the protocol like so:

{{YES|[ REST]}}

Hopefully this will allow users to comparison shop a little easier - it's hard enough for commercial providers to convince potential clients to overcome the inertia keeping them on competing voice products, the least we can do is make it easier to shop for the hosts that are going to offer them the best experiences.
