Texas Instruments#Criticism[edit]

I recently created the above section. I'm looking for help expanding it and for feedback about it. Thanks. --Puzzledvegetable (talk) 17:19, 2 July 2019 (UTC)

Puzzledvegetable, we try to avoid these sections per WP:CRIT. What you have in that section can easily be added to the products or the division sections which discuss the specific product. Also make sure to keep WP:UNDUE in mind so as not to make the page a sounding piece for those who don't like company. Assign appropriate weight to what is reported about the company in WP:RSes. --CNMall41 (talk) 05:53, 10 July 2019 (UTC)

Use of Architectural Digest at Talk:Marmol Radziner[edit]

Is use of a particular source for 14 out of 46 references in an article excessive reliance on a single source? Another voice that can lend to the discussion at Talk:Marmol Radziner would be helpful. Cheers! bd2412 T 02:31, 16 July 2019 (UTC)

BD2412, I think the use of a single "reference" 14/46 would be excessive; however, the use of a "source" 14/46 would unlikely be excessive depending on how it is used. I don't see any reference used more than twice. If the majority of the page was cited to a single reference, there would be cause for concern but I don't see an issue with this as long as the source itself is reliable. That would be the same as if the page cited several different article from The New York Times in the same manner. --CNMall41 (talk) 03:55, 16 July 2019 (UTC)

Up for deletion Commuter Cars[edit]

Find sources: Google (books · news · newspapers · scholar · free images · WP refs· FENS · JSTOR · NYT · TWL

Arguably a notable company. Sources in Time Magazine, CNN Money and a blurb in Bloomberg. I spent some time trying to develop the categories and improve the refs. Perhaps more refs can be located. Should be considered in conjunction with Commuter Cars Tango. I have improved the reference formatting on the latter article, but it would be improved by moving some of the "References" to in line citations. I also improved the formatting of the reference in this article Commuter Cars. In any event, between the two articles, there is plenty to satisfy WP:GNG.

Willmott Dixon Updates[edit]

Hi, I am new to editing Wikipedia, I am an employee of Willmott Dixon and want to make some updates to the page due to old info being displayed on there. I think I have submitted a draft for your review - please could you take a look and see if the wording is ok? I also need to update the company logo as the one on the page is old. I uploaded that as a file but it has been reverted back.

Thanks Hannah.fuller1 (talk) 08:40, 18 July 2019 (UTC)

Hannah.fuller1, please refer to WP:PAID and make the proper disclosure on your user page. After that, you can request edits on the talk page of the article by using the instructions found at WP:COIREQ. --CNMall41 (talk) 04:38, 21 July 2019 (UTC)
Also appears that Dormskirk has addressed the COI concerns with the article. --CNMall41 (talk) 04:43, 21 July 2019 (UTC)
In the meantime I have inserted a "png" version of the company logo. Dormskirk (talk) 10:03, 21 July 2019 (UTC)

Business Insider establishment[edit]

Was Business Insider launched in 2007 or 2009? The article is self-contradictory. Skull33 (talk) 10:41, 27 July 2019 (UTC)

  • According to https://www.insider-inc.com, the predecessor blog was founded in 2007. Normally we would use this, going by the date the "ancestral" company was formed, even if it had a different name at the time. UnitedStatesian (talk) 15:35, 27 July 2019 (UTC)

Sportsman's Warehouse[edit]

Could someone from this WikiProject take a look at this article? It's a stub and maybe the company meets WP:NORG, but there's a declared PAID editor who's recently showed up to start editing/updating it. The editor appears to be at least trying to do this in accordance with WP:COI and WP:PAID, but the recent addition of content about the company's "mission statement" as a minor edit might not be a good sign of things to come. Perhaps someone more familiar with these articles could help "guide" this editor along? -- Marchjuly (talk) 21:15, 4 September 2019 (UTC)

Marchjuly, I have it on my watchlist. Looks like you did a good job of trimming what needed to be. If I get some time later in the week I may clean it up a little bit. --CNMall41 (talk) 21:38, 8 September 2019 (UTC)

Resideo company page[edit]

I am employed by a communications firm, and I have been working since May 2019 to improve a draft of an article for a client, Resideo, a public company operating in the smart-home technologies marketplace. It spun off from Honeywell in October 2018. In response to feedback from Wikipedia reviewers on previous drafts, I have made improvements on sourcing and, I believe, I have removed all promotional language that may have been biased. I researched other company pages created as a result of spin offs (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Corporate_spin-offs) and used them as inspiration for the Resideo article structure. Before I resubmit this for approval, I am planning to add an Infobox, but I would appreciate any other feedback that would further improve the article or any comments you have on the subject's notability. I understand I am working in a conflict of interest/paid editing situation, which is why I am seeking help from the community. Here is a link to review it in the draft space: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:Resideo Thank you. Nellie04 (talk) 01:47, 6 September 2019 (UTC)

Nellie04, first, thanks for your transparency. It looks like you are in the right forum with AfC and have submitted the draft at least two prior time. I would recommend focusing on WP:ORGCRIT and not other articles in Wikipedia. While they may give you a guide on formatting, many articles on Wikipedia have issues and if you follow those issues you could wind up not have a draft that complies with guidelines. Focus on the ORGCRIT guideline to ensure you have references that establish notability. Once you do, feel free to resubmit through AfC. --CNMall41 (talk) 21:43, 8 September 2019 (UTC)
