bad entries at proffesional services and hosting providers

Jaime Casanova-2
Hi,

I have a list of $subject from the southamerica region, how would be
the right way to report those?
There was a time when i could act on those entries by myself but it
seems i'm a mere mortal now

Here or webmaster@ is fine.

I do a periodic pruning of the entries (I believe the last one was ~1
year ago).

Note that based on how it's a bad entry, it may require additional
verification on the moderation team's part.

Thanks,

Jonathan

yes, of course.

So i will list them here.

== These sites do not contain any reference, that we could find at
least, to: postgresql, services for postgresql nor any
postgresql-based products.

A & W asociados, C.A.
http://www.awasociados.com
website does not respond, while there is a www.awasociados.net, it
seems a different company (a different country and with services not
postgresql related)

Corvus Data
http://www.corvusdata.com.mx/
website contain references to postgresql services, but no link points
to a page explaining those services instead they point to a strange
“about me” page

DBAS
http://www.dbas.me/
website requires more investigation, it only includes a button to send
an email. But it specifies they work with postgresql.

EQ Soft Consultoría y Soporte EIRL
http://www.eqsoft.net/
we cannot find evidence that it relates to postgresql in anyway

Mondrian Tecnologia
http://www.mondriantecnologia.com/
when we originally tested the url, the website did not respond. Now it
shows a banner saying is on maintenance, so maybe we should contact
them or just wait some time and recheck.

Pgopen
http://www.pgopen.com.br/
El sitio web indicado no menciona en absoluto a Postgresql como
servicio o plataforma ofrecida y tampoco contiene información sobre
algún tipo de servicio relacionado con PG. En ninguna parte del sitio
web de la empresa aparece siquiera el nombre Postgresql.

== in doubt ==

Engine Yard, Inc.
http://www.engineyard.com/
we are in doubt about this entry, it mentions postgresql in only one
page that we can see and it is in the middle of a list of other
databases they support. Also not sure if the fact that it could
provide services worldwide allows a provider to be listed on all
regions


InfraCoop
https://www.infracoop.com.ar/
they don’t mention postgresql in their services, but they do mention
it on the skills on their staff nonetheless the last
postgresql-related blog was 5 years ago

There is care, but there are also other priorities on the moderation
team, both professionally and personally.

However, I will take care of this right now.

Confirmed and removed.

I was able to get to a listing about PostgreSQL training from the homepage:

https://corvusdata.com.mx/2021/01/14/curso-postgresql/

Overall, it's not up to the moderation team to judge the quality of the
website unless it's in flagrant disregard of the policy.[1]

The entry and website are good enough to meet policy[1].

> EQ Soft Consultoría y Soporte EIRL
> http://www.eqsoft.net/
> we cannot find evidence that it relates to postgresql in anyway

I clicked into the website and found the owner listing experience with
PostgreSQL:

http://www.eqsoft.net/trabajo/requerimiento-de-personal-noviembre-2019/

I would recommend contacting them in this case.

I found information that they provide PostgreSQL services:

http://www.pgopen.com.br/pgopen-amplia-seus-atendimentos/

> Linux Solutions
> https://linuxsolutions.com.br/
> we cannot find evidence that it relates to postgresql in anyway

I found a URL referencing a PostgreSQL training course:

https://linuxsolutions.com.br/ajuda-linux-dia-70-introducao-ao-postgresql-dia-1/

Perhaps they have pivoted away from providing services around PostgreSQL
and it would be worth reaching out to them.

> Ideasoft Uruguay SRL
> https://www.ideasoft.biz/
> we cannot find evidence that it relates to postgresql in anyway

I found some support tickets subdomain on their site related to
PostgreSQL. I believe the correct course of action would be to reach out
to them and see if they still support PostgreSQL.

I agree. It seems they have pivoted. I have removed this.

> TELEMATICA S.A.
> https://www.telematica.com.pe/
> we cannot find evidence that it relates to postgresql in anyway

I found information both on Postgres + PostGIS, e.g:

https://www.telematica.com.pe/que-hay-de-nuevo-en-arcmap-10-6/

They appear to specialize in GIS work.

Engine Yard still supports PostgreSQL:

https://www.engineyard.com/postgresql-database-hosting/

On the homepage, there is a customer reference that appears to talk
about their PostgreSQL modernization efforts.

For next steps, I am happy to reach out to the two in question and see
if I get a response.

A follow up on this comment: note that your original reply to it came
during a week where many people were on holiday, and roughly two weeks
after we first corresponded on it.

This was certainly in my backlog to review and I appreciate the nudge,
but I want to note that this is not due to a lack of care, but as
mentioned, priorities both in and out of the community.

Thanks,

Jonathan

Thanks for looking into this.

Sorry if I sounded rude, it wasn't my intention but I have bad
memories about trying to collaborate in this area. I understand it was
another time and other people.

interesting. in my defense, these entries were added on january 2021
so they weren't when we looked at them

that's not owner experience but looking for new people with those
skills, anyway I'm not disputing the experience they have... and there
was a time when they actually advertized that they provided postgresql
services

But what policy actually says is that "services must be related to
PostgreSQL in some direct and obvious way" and that is not the case.
Not that I'm completely happy with policy, maybe we need to look at it
first before continuing with this exercise?

I noted that, again I will point at the policy that requires "services
must be related to PostgreSQL in some direct and obvious way" (note
that I'm ignoring the "All services" and just saying "Any service")

Again, maybe we need to review the policy

The fun thing about moderating these sections of the website: after you
make a pass at it, it immediately becomes stale ;) It is a classic cat &
mouse game.

The policy states "Further, the web site you link to in the listing must
somewhere mention PostgreSQL as an offered service or platform."[1]

I think this fine. We have listings that range from solo practioners to
multibillionaire organizations. I think the goal overall is to be
encouraging.

And as stated above, arguably each entry goes stale the moment after
it's reviewed. It's the nature of the game.

If they are doing work with PostGIS, I believe that qualifies as being
related to PostgreSQL.

If you are reaching out to these organizations directly, please include
webmaster@ on the correspondences, as that will save time on the
moderation team verifying.

Thanks again for working on this!

I read this policy as: it must be possible to find Postgres-related
services by browsing the website starting from the published URL.  In
this case, a person looking for Postgres services browses their website,
they won't find anywhere that they are offering PostgreSQL services.

As Jaime said, the post you found just says they are looking to hire
somebody with Postgres experience, which is definitely not the same as
offering Postgres services.  I do not think that merely having the word
"Postgres" somewhere in the website is enough to qualify.

Website is back.  There's no mention of Postgres anywhere, though the
logo is an elephant.  There is some "Lorem ipsum" content so we can wait
a few days to see if they upload something relevant.  I do not think
that merely having an elephant as a logo is enough to qualify.

BTW, what I did was to ask for information about their services but
