Looking for an editor to help with Verizon Enterprise Solutions article
Hello, I'm back with another request that I'm hoping an editor can help me with. Currently, the article for Verizon Enterprise Solutions is very short, so I drafted a more thorough version of the article and uploaded it to my userspace.
As I've noted previously here, I'm an employee of Verizon, so I don't make any edits to articles myself. I'm thus hoping an editor can take a look at what I've written and, if the material looks okay, move it over to replace the current, short article. I'm also open to any feedback editors might have.
Comment on the WikiProject X proposal
Hello there! As you may already know, most WikiProjects here on Wikipedia struggle to stay active after they've been founded. I believe there is a lot of potential for WikiProjects to facilitate collaboration across subject areas, so I have submitted a grant proposal with the Wikimedia Foundation for the "WikiProject X" project. WikiProject X will study what makes WikiProjects succeed in retaining editors and then design a prototype WikiProject system that will recruit contributors to WikiProjects and help them run effectively. Please review the proposal here and leave feedback. If you have any questions, you can ask on the proposal page or leave a message on my talk page. Thank you for your time! (Also, sorry about the posting mistake earlier. If someone already moved my message to the talk page, feel free to remove this posting.) Harej (talk) 22:48, 1 October 2014 (UTC)
LATAs and exchange code protection
I've been seeing this bizarre statement in a few individual area code articles, like area code 618: "The supply of numbers is further limited because much of 618 is part of the St. Louis LATA; some exchanges in Missouri's 314 and 636 are not available as '618-nxx' numbers."
What does a LATA have to do with exchange code protection? Two points can be in the same LATA without being a local call, a seven-digit call or even in the same area code. I presume the limit is on assigning the same local seven-digit number in two different area codes in the same seven-digit local calling area, so bringing LATAs into this (aren't they those Russian cars?) is merely adding unneeded confusion, but I thought I should ask here first.

WikiProject X is live!
You may have received a message from me earlier asking you to comment on my WikiProject X proposal. The good news is that WikiProject X is now live! In our first phase, we are focusing on research. At this time, we are looking for people to share their experiences with WikiProjects: good, bad, or neutral. We are also looking for WikiProjects that may be interested in trying out new tools and layouts that will make participating easier and projects easier to maintain. If you or your WikiProject are interested, check us out! Note that this is an opt-in program; no WikiProject will be required to change anything against its wishes. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!
