Clyde cancer clusterEdit

Hello, people of WikiProject Companies. I've created this message to notify active members of the project, especially to those who know a lot about or are interested in the Whirlpool Corporation. If you are, I need help improving my article about the Clyde cancer cluster, an incident that Whirlpool was sued for; in other words, it was their fault (don't write those words on the article by the way, WP:NEUTRAL). It is definitely not a bad article. It just needs some small improvements. I'm not at all saying minor edits or improvements are bad, but I'm specifically looking for people who can help me long-term with a lot of co-research to improve the article to reach Good Article status. If you're interested in helping, the things needed to be improved are listed on Talk:Clyde cancer cluster#Improvements. In other words, more material needs to be added to improve the article, and I want more people to edit because I feel like I'm the sole editor. Regards, Philmonte101 (talk)

== Here is an article https://www.thenews-messenger.com/story/news/local/2015/02/18/cancer-cluster-lawsuit-dropped/23628511/ which names the owners of the Park who suspect the contamination in Green Springs. I don't know how to put this in without getting your numbered source links out of order. LadyImpactOhio (talk) 20:40, 29 April 2018 (UTC)LadyImpactOhio 4-29-18

Taylor (Firm)Edit

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)

WikiProject InvestmentEdit

Was hoping to collaborate with this project!

I'd like to invite you to join the Investment WikiProject. There are a lot of Investment related articles on Wikipedia that could use a little attention, and I hope this project can help organize an effort to improve them. So please, take a look and if you like what you see, help get this project off the ground and a few Investment pages into the front ranks of Wikipedia articles. Thanks!

Help with Kona Grill UpdatesEdit

Hello, WikiProject Companies members. I've proposed an update request in the article for Kona Grill and am looking for interested editors to help. I have a COI with this company, so I do not intend to make any edits to the live article and am looking for an uninvolved editor (or editors) to review and make the changes they feel are appropriate. The article is currently a stub, so I'm proposing some additional information be added to make the article more informative to readers. Would anyone mind taking a look at this and lending a hand? Any and all help is appreciated, Deswans1 (talk) 22:37, 2 January 2018 (UTC)

Hi, I'm still looking for help with this proposal. Is there anyone that can provide some assistance, please? Thank you Deswans1 (talk) 18:25, 21 March 2018 (UTC)

Relisting of move discussionEdit

Greetings! I have recently relisted a requested move discussion at Talk:Hutchison 3G#Requested move 17 February 2018, regarding a page relating to this WikiProject. Discussion and opinions are invited. Thanks, SkyWarrior 20:20, 24 February 2018 (UTC)

RfC at New York Life Insurance CompanyEdit

Hello! I invite editors to participate in this request for comment at New York Life Insurance Company about whether it's appropriate to have a section based on a government report. Your input would be most welcome! Thanks in advance, 16912 Rhiannon (Talk · COI) 13:26, 19 March 2018 (UTC)

Hi again! I've posted up a re-worded version of this RfC here. Looking for editors to offer their thoughts on this. Thanks! 16912 Rhiannon (Talk · COI) 15:14, 21 March 2018 (UTC)

Film Booking Offices of America Featured Article ReviewEdit

FAR coordinator User:Casliber has nominated Film Booking Offices of America for a featured article review here. This is a procedural review of its FA status due to the discovery of socking at its original FAC. Please join the discussion on whether this article meets featured article criteria. Articles are typically reviewed for two weeks. The instructions for the review process are here.

If substantial concerns are not addressed during the review period, the article will be moved to the Featured Article Removal Candidates list for a further period, where editors may declare "Keep" or "Delist" the article's featured status. SandyGeorgia (Talk) 15:28, 19 March 2018 (UTC)

YESFX Ltd - alleged "scam"?Edit

Hello, could an editor with experience in company articles could have a look at that article please? Some comments (see talk and article, now removed from article) claim, that the company might not be registered or might even be an alleged "scam". As I am not an expert in Cyprus company law or company registration in general, any help would be appreciated. There's also the question of general notability for this company, that a knowledgeable editor might be more qualified to assess. GermanJoe (talk) 22:46, 20 March 2018 (UTC)

Kohlberg Kravis Roberts, an article that you or your project may be interested in, has been nominated for an individual good article reassessment.

Discussion InvitationEdit

A merge proposal was made to merge Keith Raniere with NXIVM in November 2017, I have revived the merge proposal. Please see discussion here. Your comments in the discussion would be appreciated since the page is within this WikiProject. -- Waddie96 (talk) 14:44, 9 April 2018 (UTC)

Fix up of Weber Shandwick articleEdit

If anyone is interested in working on the article on Weber Shandwick I just added a {{multiple issues}} template for that. I checked page views for Weber Shandwick and it looks to be getting on average about 100 views per day with less over the weekends.

Promedica Health System to buy HCR ManorcareEdit

HCR Manorcare is already a topic, and it is stated it needs improvement because one of the writers appears to be someone close to the topic. I believe that person may be user Randall O. Which could be Randy Oostra, who is CEO of Promedica. I don't understand enough about companies buying and selling, but this buy would make Promedica the 15th largest health system in the country. Unfortunately I have reached my limit for the Toledo Blade which has been carrying the bulk of this news. Both companies have their HQ in Toledo so if someone with more adept expertise in business could update the article it would be much appreciated.

I'm not a fan of Promedica. They are heavy-handed, very powerful and they own their own health insurance company, Paramount, who insures me. So I would be having a conflict of interest as well if the updated the article.

Thanks.

WikiProject Volkswagen GroupEdit

I discovered this thing, WP:WikiProject Volkswagen Group / {{User WikiProject Volkswagen Group}} / Category:WikiProject Volkswagen Group members -- it only has one member, no talk page, no project banner, no category, no activity since mid-2016 -- 70.51.203.56 (talk) 08:27, 1 May 2018 (UTC)

Quick infobox request for H&R BlockEdit

Hello! Do any WikiProject Companies editors have time to review a few potential updates to the H&R Block infobox? You can find my proposed draft infobox at Talk:H&R Block, along with the markup, and references. I'm suggesting some simple fixes including adding wikilinks, updating financials, and updating employee count, while retaining other details in the current infobox.

Since I do have a financial conflict of interest (disclosed on the article Talk page), I won't edit the article myself and am looking for uninvolved editors to review and make changes as appropriate. Thanks in advance, 16912 Rhiannon (Talk · COI) 16:47, 4 May 2018 (UTC)

Requesting factual changes to PicMonkey pageEdit

Greetings,

In the talk page for PicMonkey (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:PicMonkey), a Seattle-based business, I had requested some factual updates (all detailed in the talk page). As I have a conflict of interest in that I represent the company, I do not wish to make the edits myself. Rather, I'd like to ask for community input on the validity of the changes, as well as for a non-conflicted editor to make the edits. (Unless the community finds the changes benign enough for me to make).

Thanks for any input and direction. The company (and I, by extension) is new to Wikipedia editing.

Help updating Gallup (company)Edit

Hello, Editors on this WikiProject might be interested in suggested updates to clean up Gallup, the management consulting business that also conducts public opinion polling. The infobox is missing key content, such as Gallup's former names, its industry, and where it was founded, and the Gallup Press section is currently supported only by primary sources. I've made some suggested changes to fix all these issues. As disclosed on the Gallup Talk page, I have a financial conflict of interest, as I'm offering these updates on behalf of the company as part of my work with Beutler Ink, so I'm looking for other editors to review. Thank you in advance, Danilo Two (talk) 17:36, 18 May 2018 (UTC)

When a company which has few reliable sources about it takes over the operations of another company, what to do?Edit

There is a company named All Smiles Dental Centers which became notorious in Dallas after accusations of Medicaid fraud. The company closed and its remaining locations were bought out by South Texas Dental, a company which has not attracted much attention in the press. South Texas Dental itself has few sources, but it took over the operations of a notable company. How should I handle this article? WhisperToMe (talk) 13:15, 20 May 2018 (UTC)

How to handle it, in what aspect? Are you thinking about whether the two articles should be merged together? I would say no. These two companies existed as separate topics for 11 years, and they don't retroactively become the same topic because one of them acquired the other. Or are you thinking that South Texas Dental is non-notable? If that's the case, then you can nominate it for deletion. The company doesn't inherit notability by acquiring a notable company.
