Updating the infobox on Verizon Communications article[edit]

Hello, I'm hoping an editor here might be able to help update the infobox on the Verizon Communications article. I've posted a few suggestions on the Verizon Talk page to bring the information there up-to-date. I've also included a comment about a recent edit that I'm hoping editors here might be able to look at and see what they think.

As I've mentioned previously here, I'm an employee of Verizon, and won't make any of these edits myself.

Thanks so much, VZBob (talk) 17:13, 4 June 2014 (UTC)

Hello again. The infobox updates have now been done, but I'm still hoping an editor here might be able to look at the issue I raised at Talk:Verizon about the recent edit, which I've broken out into its own section, to make it easier to find. If possible, could someone take a look at see what they think? The editor who helped with the infobox suggested that I reach out to others about it, so I'm hoping someone here can review it.

I just read Carterfone and I have no idea what it is. Is this some kind of early cordless phone? I'd appreciate it if something could add a non-technical explanation of what it does. Ego White Tray (talk) 14:30, 26 June 2014 (UTC)

I just read it and I thought it was relatively clear. I'll make some minor edits to the LEDE, but maybe you have some specific issues I should address? Maury Markowitz (talk) 17:30, 13 July 2014 (UTC)

Looking for an editor to help with Verizon Enterprise Solutions article[edit]

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.

Thanks so much, VZBob (talk) 21:27, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

This has been done. VZBob (talk) 13:22, 5 September 2014 (UTC)

Comment on the WikiProject X proposal[edit]

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[edit]

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.
