APCO Worldwide[edit]

Making a personal note to add improving this page to my To Do list. Appears to focus almost exclusively on controversial topics. CorporateM (Talk) 13:38, 9 December 2014 (UTC)

James Jordan (publicist)[edit]

James Jordan (publicist) is still dead. So BLP does not apply. Go to AfD if you wish. Bearian (talk) 23:04, 9 December 2014 (UTC)

Good point. I've sent it to AfD rather than prod. CorporateM (Talk) 23:29, 9 December 2014 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Marisara Pont Marchese[edit]

Thanks for alerting me to the need of improving this biography. She not only served as SoS/Lt. Governor and Acting Governor of Puerto Rico but was the only one whose recess appointment ended when denied legislative confirmation, a unique moment in PR's political history.Pr4ever (talk) 23:56, 12 December 2014 (UTC)

This is my first GA review. I know you are familiar with the process so if you think I'm being unfair on anything feel free to point it out. Off of initial impressions of the criteria, I'm inclined to pass but I will work through the details as I move along. Best, Vile-eight (talk) 19:19, 13 December 2014 (UTC)
@Vile-eight Sure thing. It's a small/simple article, so a perfect place to get started with GA reviewing. CorporateM (Talk) 21:17, 13 December 2014 (UTC)

Apple specialists[edit]

This has been a regret for me, that long ago I spent energy working on an article on an actual Apple marketing program which still appears to exist and which includes many of the best independent retailers in the business, but despite the test of time hasn't produced a single independent reliable source that I can find. I made the effort assuming that I'd eventually find sources. The page has languished because of the lack of cite-able material. Several COI editors have contributed. If this can't be sourced, I'd support deletion, though it's an article on which I once spent some energy. (Note: this page seems to indicate the text hasn't been changed in forever, PowerBook G4's being discontinued almost 9 years ago.) The category might also deserve discussion, as might the template. Of the pages on businesses, many of those should remain, based on sourcing. Tekserve has the sourcing to become quite a page. BusterD (talk) 02:10, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

@user:BusterD I noticed that user:DGG deleted the PROD and asked that I do a search for sources to ascertain notability for an AfD, rather than deleting it as OR. I figured searches for "Apple Specialist" would bring up so much stuff related to the combination of two english words, as oppose to the actual title, I wasn't sure how productive doing searches would be. So I settled for cleaning up the promotional aspects of it. CorporateM (Talk) 02:27, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
Apparently it does indeed exist [1]--but some of the product examples on their web site are very much non-current , eg. "Your brand new PowerBook G4" What I had in mind was checking the relevant magazines for the period. Or their annual reports. DGG ( talk ) 05:17, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
I wonder about their significance of Apple Specialist when their web site is still promoting OS X Lion, a 2011 release. Maybe there's a reason for the lack of third-party attention. The web site at http://applespecialist.com is run by the Apple Specialist Marketing Corp of Elgin, IL. This entity is not part of Apple and is distinct from Apple's own Apple Specialist program. EdJohnston (talk) 05:35, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
Because their website is obviously outdated I don't think trivializes their historical significance, however it does gives us a timeline (2011) to check Apple's annual reports for those years; if it was significant to them, it should be at least mentioned there. CorporateM (Talk) 14:24, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
Here we go. From the looks of it most resellers went out of business after Apple launched its own chain of retail stores. It is probably a notable subject, but then I PROD' for OR, as oppose to notability. At this point it's probably best left alone until someone adds sources.

Crenshaw Communications[edit]

Hi! I left a comment on the Crenshaw Communications page regarding possible deletion. Perhaps we can discuss with the rest of the editors? Thank you! Techieguy2012 (talk) 22:43, 15 December 2014 (UTC)

Left another comment on the page! Techieguy2012 (talk) 22:12, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

Studio One page[edit]

Hello, I see that after I did a major edit to Studio One (company) wiki page, you have taken out most of what I had entered to enrich the page. Could you please explain why you deleted so much of my work? AEF (talk) 15:32, 19 December 2014 (UTC)Marcia

The stuff I reverted included "an award-winning, full-service" and lots of primary sources about how its a "long-standing" member of an organization, awards-spam, press releases and similar promotion. CorporateM (Talk) 15:49, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

Nestlé Purina PetCare[edit]

Hi - I just provided input on your GA nom of here. Really excellent work. There are just a few minor changes. Please ping me if you have questions or if you make the changes and are ready for it to be passed as I'm unlikely to check it again without a reminder. DOCUMENTERROR 08:19, 25 December 2014 (UTC)

Everything looked good - I just passed the article. I checked with other editors and, given the length of the article, the opinion was no additional images are necessary. DOCUMENTERROR 22:00, 26 December 2014 (UTC)
