Vandalism of Star Trek[edit]

Vandalism of the star trek section, I don't know how to revert it... 88.111.142.224 20:41, 7 December 2006 (UTC)

I think I fixed the vandalism you're talking about. Let me know. Dreadstar 21:22, 7 December 2006 (UTC)

Disambig page?[edit]

Shouldn't this just be a disambiguation page???

This doesn't seem right to me:

A part of the economy that has not been cornered and is discovered by an entreprenuer who then makes a profit from it, sometimes consdered to be one of the factors of production.

I understand the word 'enterprise' to refer to any business venture. Perhaps someone can replace if I'm wrong. -- sannse 19:59 Apr 16, 2003 (UTC)

To my knowledge, an enterprise is a company which survives the start-up phase. -James

Enterprise Descriptor[edit]

74.115.47.124 15:20, 14 February 2007 (UTC)I am puzzled by the use of the word enterprise to describe a myriad of products and services and how to apply this classification to distinguish it from others.

Can you provide a few examples of what you mean? Here's more information on the purpose ofWikipedia:Disambiguation pages like this one, perhaps it will answer your questions. Dreadstar 17:49, 14 February 2007 (UTC)

Main definition of "enterprise"[edit]

Seems to me that this page is lacking in neglecting the actual definition of "enterprise". An enterprise is an undertaking, or project. That is the root which all these uses spring from. So it seems wrong to leave people under the impression that "enterprise" means "a business". Rather, a business is called an "enterprise" because it is an undertaking. Could we at least give a link to the Wiktionary article to start out the page? I don't know if that is per Wikipedia policy or not, but it seems right to me. So many people turn to Wikipedia to learn, but they often take it as the "be all end all", and pages like this can be misleading. AnnaGoFast (talk) 03:20, 17 February 2016 (UTC)

This isn't an article -- it's a disambiguation page. Unlike an article, its purpose is not to provide content; it's to act as a "switchboard" to get the reader to the page containing the content they're actually looking for, with the absolute minimum of distraction.
It does have a link to Wiktionary, right at the top. Everything else is brief descriptions of the various existing Wikipedia articles that might rightfully be called "Enterprise."
There's a tricky balance here, because we don't actually know what the "actual definition of 'enterprise'" is, in the mind of the arriving reader. Our goal is to present a list of options. Since, again, we don't know what the "right" option is, sticking an excess of stuff in front about undertakings and project just gets in the way of the person looking for, say, the blimp.
