Please let me share the source of the second article:

Hey, everyone!
I am quite sure, that we can bring the Wikipedia article back. It seems that current wiki moderator blocks the attempts of bringing back the old article, so I wrote the new one, using info from NopDevDays.
This article is far from perfect, somewhat sketchy and may miss many facts crucial to community or nopCommerce as product. But still, let’s use my effort as a base for the new article.
So, there is an article below. It is free for crowdediting. Add there any fact you deem crucial or worthy of wiki article.   Please, remember about neutrality POV (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Neutral_point_of_view) in wiki: I know that all of us love and use nopCommerce, but let’s express our love in facts and numbers.



Developer(s)     Nop Solutions Ltd
Stable release     3.70 / 8 December 2015;
Written in     ASP.NET
Type     e-commerce
License     nopCommerce public license (GPL v3 +  "powered by nopCommerce" requirement)
Website     www.nopcommerce.com

nopCommerce is an open-source e-commerce software, developed by Russian private company Nop Solutions Ltd.
Made with the ASP.NET programming language NopCommerce employs the MS SQL Server relational database management system.

History
Nopcommerce development started in 2008 by Andrei Mazulnitsyn in Yaroslavl, Russia.
In 2009, the Nop Solutions were founded and expanded to a company of two. Later that year, Microsoft recognized nopCommerce as significant and included it to Microsoft Web platform Installer.
In 2015, the company opened the office in Yaroslavl, Russia.

Technology
The first versions, ranging from 1.10 to 1.60 introduced basic functionality and main features such as order processing, attributes, plugins, discounts, tier pricing, news, blogs, private messages, forums, tax and shipping support.
Later (June 2010), a new data access layer was introduced in version 1.70.
Version 2.00 (August 2011) launched nopCommerce as an ASP.NET MVC based solution.
Later in 2011 nopCommere moved to ASP.NET MVC 4.

Please check open-source shops - https://trends.builtwith.com/shop/open-source (not https://trends.builtwith.com/shop). 2.7% already

P.S. A couple of weeks ago I've sent a list of about 6,000 sites that builtwith miss. I hope they'll be added to the builtwith database soon.

Thanks for addition.

I know that we have to reference every statement, but at this stage I want to make a good and readable body of article.

I saw these articles, much of them are too brief. Our brief article was deleted so we must write a good wikified article to bring the mention back.

We should add the features tab, but not detailing every feature of every version, but just the architecture. I will move the paragraph about plugins there.

It might be useful to have a list of all CMS we have integrtation with.

Hi, Eduardo!
Your input is highly appreciated! :)
I just wanted to ask why you have merged community and NopDeVDays into one paragraph. I considered NopDevDays to be very important event, worthy of separate paragraph.
