Would someone from WP:WPCY mind taking a look at Taylor (Firm) and assessing it? It was just created and already has had most of its content WP:REVDELeted as a copyright violation. There might be some COI/Paid editing involved since the two accounts primarily editing it are also brand new WP:SPAs. Not sure if it meets WP:ORG since one of the sources seems to be some kind of Harvard Law School student project and the others might be problematic per WP:CORPDEPTH. -- Marchjuly (talk)
Was hoping to collaborate with this project!
Suggested new content
I have a conflict of interest so will not edit the page directly but wanted to point the editor of this page to some recent updates from the company in order to keep the page recent and correct.
Please see below a recent article from the FT covering the companies return to profit and turnaround since the restructuring:
This is also reflected on the companies own website where they have published the results.
In addition, the company has also appointed a new chairman, while its CEO is Steve Graf and not Julian Verden as the page states:
Draft article for AlerisEdit
Hello! On behalf of Aleris, I have drafted an expanded and improved Wikipedia article for community review. The existing article is outdated and has some problematic sourcing, so I've worked to provide a more complete and up to date overview of the company's products, history, and corporate affairs with appropriate sourcing. I do not edit articles directly because of my COI, and I'm seeking help from volunteers to review and implement the proposed draft. Interested WikiProject Companies members can learn more at Talk:Aleris and view my draft here. Thanks for any assistance. Inkian Jason (talk) 14:31, 24 July 2018 (UTC)
BNY Mellon headquartersEdit
Hello, BNY Mellon recently moved its headquarters from 225 Liberty Street in New York to 240 Greenwich Street. User:Y2kcrazyjoker4 updated the infobox with the current headquarters earlier this month, but the article's Operations has not yet been updated. The issue is that the company's headquarters relocation has not been written about in third-party sources. I left a note at Talk:The Bank of New York Mellon and pinged Y2kcrazyjoker4 on their Talk page; they indicated that Operations could be updated since BNY Mellon's official website lists the new address as its headquarters but it looks like they're busy right now and haven't been able to make the edit. Could someone here assist?
Basically, I'm trying to replace the third sentence of Operations with something along the lines of: "BNY Mellon's American and global headquarters are located at 240 Greenwich Street, New York". Sourcing-wise, this Wall Street Journal article notes that BNY Mellon would move from Liberty Street to the new location (then addressed 101 Barclay St.) this summer. There is also this press release and the company's website, which both confirm the move took place and new address. Usually, press releases and company websites are not adequate sources, but I'm wondering if this might be an exception. What's the best way to move forward? I have a financial conflict of interest as I'm here on behalf of BNY Mellon as part of my work at Beutler Ink. I appreciate any advice. Danilo Two (talk) 20:00, 26 July 2018 (UTC)
This is a newly created article, so I'm wondering if someone from WPCPY would mind assessing it. I'm also wondering about the all caps name and whether a move to "Hofele-Design" might be appropriate. -- Marchjuly (talk) 01:08, 15 August 2018 (UTC)
- Looking at a handful of news items unrelated to the company, it appears the common form is "Hofele Design". --User:Ceyockey (talk to me) 01:49, 15 August 2018 (UTC)
Request at Ogilvy & MatherEdit
Hello, WikiProject Companies editors might be interested in updates I proposed for the infobox at Ogilvy & Mather. Within the infobox, I'm looking to update the CEO's title, remove two people, and update the company's subsidiaries following its recent restructuring. All of this is explained in my request on the article's Talk page. As disclosed on the Ogilvy Talk page, I have a financial conflict of interest, as I'm offering these updates on behalf of Ogilvy as part of my work with Beutler Ink, so I'm looking for other editors to review. Thank you in advance, Danilo Two (talk) 19:56, 5 September 2018 (UTC)
List of store locations SM_Supermalls#Current_mallsEdit
Hi i was wondering what to do about this article as it seems to violate WP:NOTDIRECTORY
7 "Simple listings without context information. Examples include, but are not limited to: listings of business alliances, clients, competitors, employees (except CEOs, supervisory directors and similar top functionaries), equipment, estates, offices, store locations, products and services, sponsors, subdivisions and tourist attractions. Information about relevant single entries with encyclopedic information should be added as sourced prose. Lists of creative works in a wider context are permitted." (my bolding).
Most of the entries in the remarks column contain things like "First SM Mall in Northern Luzon with no air-conditioning system." or "Second SM Mall in Visayas". I suppose this is to try and show there is context. Does anyone have an opinion on whether this should be left as is? Dom from Paris (talk) 14:48, 7 September 2018 (UTC)
- I don't see it as a problem when most of the list entries have their own articles or are otherwise likely to be notable. The wikilink to the article is the context. I would trim some of the details in the list though - a lot of the "Remarks" seem trivial, and the "Land area" doesn't seem particularly noteworthy to me. Toohool (talk) 20:51, 7 September 2018 (UTC)
The Jewelry ExchangeEdit
Hello! I was wondering if WikiProject Companies would mind taking a look at my page and assessing it. I have multiple issues that need to be resolved, but I don't know how to have them resolved.
This article has multiple issues. Please help improve it or discuss these issues on the talk page: This article's tone or style may not reflect the encyclopedic tone used on Wikipedia. This article is an orphan, as no other articles link to it. Please introduce links to this page from related articles; try the Find link tool for suggestions.

Content Update for Alder Biopharmaceuticals pageEdit
I have a conflict of interest so will not edit the page directly but wanted to share with the editor of this page a recent company update regarding a new CEO to keep the page recent and updated.
Robert W. Azelby has succeeded Randy Schatzman as Alder Biopharmaceutical's new CEO and President. This was announced by a company press release issued on June 7, 2018.
I believe the Wikipedia page still notes Randy Schatzman as the CEO so thought this may be a relevant update. Would an editor be able to help update this?
Thanks! SGTGRN (talk) 18:40, 3 October 2018 (UTC)<https://investor.alderbio.com/news-releases/news-release-details/alder-biopharmaceuticalsr-names-robert-w-azelby-president-and>
I recently added a Requested Article for Honey Coupons. Because I work for the company, there is an obvious conflict of interest. However, I do believe it's notable with reliable, independent, third party sources. Would an editor be able to write a new article for the company or provide any feedback?
