Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Carestream Dental[edit]

Dear company experts: I am trying to figure out if this is a notable company. I am not a business expert, and the history provided seems confusing and vague to me. Can someone please look at it and give an opinion about whether the page should be kept and improved, or deleted as a stale draft? Thanks. —Anne Delong (talk) 13:49, 29 April 2014 (UTC)

I trawled through the sources.
  • Some sources don't actually name Carestream; so they may well support specific content in the article but they're not evidence that Carestream is notable.
  • This page looks like substantial independent coverage of Carestream from a relatively solid source (well, it's more solid than most corporate profiles).
  • This is just a press release.
  • This is hard to gauge; "DPGA insights" sounds impressively solid and independent, but it's just a blog platform, and the content is obviously PR copy written by somebody at Carestream.
I'm not convinced that the business is notable enough. bobrayner (talk) 18:15, 1 May 2014 (UTC)
bobrayner, thanks for taking the time to check this out. After your comments I decided not to postpone its deletion, so it's gone now. —Anne Delong (talk) 00:18, 18 May 2014 (UTC)

Winton Capital Management[edit]

Hi there, I'm looking for assistance with an article that falls under the scope of WikiProject Companies and I'm hopeful someone here might be interested in helping. Last week I posted a request on the Winton Capital Management Talk page asking for help with a few changes to the article to update Winton's assets under management and leadership info. I am a paid consultant to Winton and would therefore like to avoid any edits to the article. Instead, I have left a more detailed message on the Talk page explaining the updates needed. If someone from this WikiProject was interested in helping me with these edits it would be most appreciated. I'll be watching the Winton page closely if there are any questions or comments and can respond to editors there. Cheers, WWB Too (Talk · COI) 13:24, 7 May 2014 (UTC)

User "UserNameUnderConstruction" editing the AdvisorShares page needs to blocked[edit]

For the Advisorshares article, this user keeps writing advertorial content and seem to be related to the company. This user seems to be the same person as a previous user who was blocked because the had the user name "AdvisorShares". Before that they didn't use a user name and the ip address traced back to the town in Maryland where AdvisorShares is located. It seems more than likely that this person works for the company, is trying to make their page into a biased free advertisement and is not disclosing this, in violation of Wikipedia's rules and procedures.

Citing Form 10-K and company annual report[edit]

I've been thinking for a while now that a "cite 10-K" template might be useful. However, such reports are sourced from a variety of locations, so providing an EDGAR link, for instance, would not be consistent with current consensus among people who cite 10-K forms. I found a page published by Butler University, though, which relates APA 6th edition citation styles for the form 10-k and the more generic company annual report; see for this information. From the examples, one can create a derivative of citation which contains a focused set of parameters and values for some parameters.

| year     =
| title    =<!-- either "Annual report <<year>>" or "Form 10-K <<year>>"-->
| work =<!--source of the 10-K or annual report-->
| publisher =<!--origin of the 10-K or annual report-->
| page  =<!--or use the rp template-->
| pages =<!--or use the rp template-->
| url =<!-- if available -->
| accessdate  =<!-- optional -->
| format      =<!--used to indicate "PDF", for instance-->

Suspicious editors on the page[edit]

First of all I looked up one the ip addresses ( on the page and the network name was Arrow Funds, one of the companies mentioned in the article. Also, I strongly believe that "Usernameunderconstruction" from the Advisorshares page is the same person as "ETFinvestor" from the page. It seems like the employees and/or owners of these two companies are having a Wikipedia war. Can anyone with high level permission check if Usernameunderconstruction and ETFinvestor come from the same IP address, making them sock puppets.Donthaveacowman76 (talk) 20:17, 30 May 2014 (UTC)

Request for assistance[edit]

There is a discussions at Talk:Jehovah's Witnesses#Founder regarding whether Russell, the founder of the groups which later incorporated and changed names to the JW name, can reasonably be called the founder of the JWs as well, and, I suppose, if he can, whether there should be some sort of additional text to the effect of his being the founder of the group which later became the JWs. I have a feeling the people here might be among the better editors to respond to this issue of name change and subsequent formal founding of a legal business.

Leaflet For Wikiproject Companies At Wikimania 2014[edit]

Hi all,

My name is Adi Khajuria and I am helping out with Wikimania 2014 in London.

One of our initiatives is to create leaflets to increase the discoverability of various wikimedia projects, and showcase the breadth of activity within wikimedia. Any kind of project can have a physical paper leaflet designed - for free - as a tool to help recruit new contributors. These leaflets will be printed at Wikimania 2014, and the designs can be re-used in the future at other events and locations.

This is particularly aimed at highlighting less discoverable but successful projects, e.g:

• Active Wikiprojects: Wikiproject Medicine, WikiProject Video Games, Wikiproject Film

• Tech projects/Tools, which may be looking for either users or developers.

• Less known major projects: Wikinews, Wikidata, Wikivoyage, etc.

• Wiki Loves Parliaments, Wiki Loves Monuments, Wiki Loves ____

• Wikimedia thematic organisations, Wikiwomen’s Collaborative, The Signpost

For more information or to sign up for one for your project, go to:

I think List of assets owned by Berkshire Hathaway requires a higher importance level[edit]

As noted on its talk page many months (and indeed years) ago now, this article, which lists the assets of the fifth largest company in the world, is not put together very well. Although I did some minor cleanup on it, I do not have the economic background or knowledge to vigorously improve the article. The article should be regarded as being of high importance due to the scale of the company's notability. See the talk page for the issues apparently at hand. (Also, I'm not sure if this is the correct place to bring this up; apologies if I got it wrong.) -- Pingumeister(talk) 19:06, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

ADC Telecommunications[edit]

Can anyone please tell me whether this company exists presently? They are running an ad in Craigslist for workers at home. I can not find any information to verify their authenticity, can anyone assist? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:41, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

ASBIS and Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/ASBIS[edit]

Dear company experts: This mainspace article is poorly sourced, and a COI editor took advice and created a replacement in AfC which eventually came to have much better references. However, because of the existing article, it can't be accepted. I know little about companies, so I am looking for someone who would be willing to merge the two articles, moving over from the draft whatever text and sources are an improvement on the original article, while crediting User:Anna Iv and User:ASBIS.cmg in the edit summary. Can anyone help? —Anne Delong (talk) 15:04, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

Porsche Salzburg[edit]

For your information, I have revised the content of Porsche Salzburg from a car race entrant to a major company, and created Porsche Holding Salzburg as another common name redirect page to Porsche Salzburg. Porsche Holding GmbH headquartered in Salzburg, Austria is the largest car distributor in Europe. Yiba (talk | contribs) 13:15, 31 July 2014 (UTC)
