Offer to assist with article[edit]

Hi, I’m Einlowhood and I work for PATH. I’m stating this per the conflict of interest policy recommendation and in an effort to be transparent. We would like an independent editor to work on this article so it can be written from a neutral point of view and the following message can be removed from our article: “This article is written like an advertisement. Please help rewrite this article from a neutral point of view. For blatant advertising that would require a fundamental rewrite to become encyclopedic, use {{db-spam}} to mark for speedy deletion. (January 2009). I can provide information to an editor if that is helpful. Einlowhood (talk) 20:55, 18 May 2011 (UTC) Einlowhood

Hello Einlowhood. I have been editing Wikipedia for a few years and I am interested in editing articles about medical research organizations. What kind of information do you have? Can you please share? Blue Rasberry (talk) 22:06, 18 May 2011 (UTC)

Advertising template removed[edit]

I just removed {{advert}} because the article does not seem like an advertisement to me. If anyone feels otherwise, please comment. Blue Rasberry (talk) 16:51, 12 September 2011 (UTC)

Suggested edits for this page[edit]

As I disclosed on my profile page, I work for PATH. I have made significant edits to this page that reflect a more recent history of PATH's work. I've included new references and a new structure to the article. I am relatively new to editing Wikiepdia and I want to respect Wikipedia's community guidelines. Einlowhood (talk) 22:06, 15 February 2013 (UTC)

What do you want to happen? You want this version which you posted here to be pasted to the main article space, and you want community review in advance? Is that correct? If so, I can look it over. There is not a good way to get review for an organization's work on Wikipedia, and certainly no standard process, but some options for getting additional opinions include posting at the conflict of interest noticeboard at WP:COIN, at Wikipedia:WikiProject Cooperation's talk page, or posting the Template:Request edit on this page to put this page in queue to be reviewed. Or, I could help you with this, but please tell me what is happening here. Blue Rasberry (talk) 23:18, 24 February 2013 (UTC)
I made the edits. I just want to make sure that I am following the correct guidelines for editing Wikipedia articles. Einlowhood (talk) 20:49, 28 February 2013 (UTC)

Requested move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the proposal was moved to PATH (global health organization). --BDD (talk) 18:27, 17 September 2013 (UTC)

Program for Appropriate Technology in HealthPATH – PATH is formally retiring the long version of its official name (Program for Appropriate Technology in Health) in favor of the more frequently used PATH. As such, we would like to move this article to reflect this organizational change. Thank you. --Relisted. Mdann52 (talk) 12:37, 5 September 2013 (UTC)Jbwilke (talk) 19:37, 28 August 2013 (UTC)

Hello, do you have a published source to cite to verify this? Thanks. Blue Rasberry (talk) 19:42, 28 August 2013 (UTC)
  • Strong oppose this is clearly NOT the appropriate article to replace the current page at PATH. There is no reason to delete the disambiguation page and merge it to a hatnote here, and this is not more prominent than the Port Authority Trans-Hudson (PATH) or PATH (Toronto) -- 76.65.128.222 (talk) 01:53, 29 August 2013 (UTC)
  • Comment provided that there is a reliable source for the name change of the NGO (something we haven't seen yet), I see no problem with this move; however, the proposed name is not unique, so a construct like "PATH (global health)" or similar will be needed. -- Scray (talk) 02:33, 29 August 2013 (UTC)
  • Oppose To add to 76.65.128.222 comments, there is no indication that this article is the lead for PATH. The title is best left as is to permit natural disambiguation.--Labattblueboy (talk) 02:54, 29 August 2013 (UTC)
    Like the company formerly known as "Lucky-Goldstar", we name an article for an organization's current name, not some former name. If reliable sources show that this company's name has changed, we should move the article (with parenthetical disambiguation). Until then, we should not. -- Scray (talk) 03:54, 29 August 2013 (UTC)
    I could live with PATH (global health). There are a number or "organizations" named PATH.--Labattblueboy (talk) 02:54, 30 August 2013 (UTC)
  • amendment - the article would be moved to PATH (organization), not to take over the disambiguation page at PATH. Blue Rasberry (talk) 10:48, 29 August 2013 (UTC)
Support. I support a moved to PATH (organisation). LT90001 (talk) 21:28, 29 August 2013 (UTC)
  • Note I requested more info, and at her userpage User_talk:Jbwilke posted a link to their state registration which says they do business as "PATH". I also looked on their website PATH.org - it seems that they purged the old acronym entirely. Blue Rasberry (talk) 01:10, 6 September 2013 (UTC)
  • move to PATH (global health organization) per nom, other args above.--Obi-Wan Kenobi (talk) 15:54, 6 September 2013 (UTC)
