When I first saw the template's picture I wasn't sure what it was really until I looked at it close. It illustrated workers at a stock exchange, something I probably should admit that it would make a significant icon. But when I looked at pictures at other project templates, I noticed that most of them have simple images (pictures depicting one thing as a symbol) and not very complicated ones (such pictures portraying numerous things within). So I figured it would be best if I added something simple like a briefcase, an object office workers bring a lot which makes it something that really defines business.

This idea may not have a so-called "consensus" but I assume it's a good one that perhaps a lot would accept. I got this from playing a video game called The Sims. There, I saw that their symbol for business is exactly what I applied on the template. (talk) 00:13, 14 August 2008 (UTC)

Template creates duplicate discussion page?[edit]

I think there may a problem with this template.

On Talk:Hedge_fund this template shows a link to a not-yet-defined discussion subpage Talk:Hedge_fund/Comments This may just be a bug. If not seems to be creating a discussion pages for project business editors that is separate from the one for all other editors. Is this a good idea? Servalo (talk) 10:49, 11 April 2009 (UTC)

It's supposed to work that way, see: Category:WikiProject Business articles with comments. --Funandtrvl (talk) 16:36, 11 April 2009 (UTC)


{{editprotected}} I would like an admin's help. File:WikiProject Business briefcase.svg has superseded File:Businessbriefcase.png. I would like to replace the latter, but http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Template:WikiProject_Business&action=edit is protected. Can someone fix this for me? Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Koavf (talkcontribs)

Edit request[edit]

The template currently says: This article is within the scope of WikiProject Business, a collaborative effort to improve the coverage of Business on Wikipedia. (formatting replaced with own)

It should say: This article is within the scope of WikiProject Business, a collaborative effort to improve the coverage of business on Wikipedia. (formatting replaced with own)

"Business" is not a proper noun, and should not be capitalized, except in "WikiProject Business", which is a proper noun. Thank you. (talk) 22:53, 15 June 2012 (UTC)
