WRONG LOGO!!!![edit]

The logo that appears on the page is from Trenitalia, the right logo should be the Ferrovie dello Stato one. www.ferroviedellostato.it —Preceding unsigned comment added by 195.72.206.6 (talk) 15:59, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

Figures in infobox[edit]

I am responding to a post at WP:NPOVN. Kiwirigi is adding a figure to the infobox] and Ita140188 objects, saying that debt should not be noted in the income field and that the source is not good enough.

I agree that for other companies, information about debt is not put in the infobox, so I side with Ita140188's argument.

I cannot read the newspaper cited because I do not know Italian, but assuming that the newspaper is respectable, then I would side with Kiwirigi in putting this information somewhere in the article, probably in the text of the body. The only restriction to this is the quality of the source cited. If the source is doubtful but good enough, then instead of saying "The debt is..." then say "The newspaper says the debt is..."

Please continue to try to find a compromise and talk here on the talk page. Blue Rasberry (talk) 15:56, 27 April 2015 (UTC)

Hi everybody, there is no description lines for debt in the infobox company because it's obvious that a debt for a company doesn't have to exist at all or has to be so low that it's not relevant for the infobox. 4 billion € debt for a company that has a revenue in order of millions € IS relevant in my opinion; and would be nice if it would be descripted in the infobox. Kiwirigi (talk) 07:50, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

If there is no place to put the debt level in the infobox, it doesn't mean you can just put it wherever you like. If you want to cite this number, please move it inside the main text. --Ita140188 (talk) 08:10, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

The 8 billion debt is descripted near the profit just in this company article because it completes the information. Kiwirigi (talk) 12:44, 29 April 2015 (UTC)
Kiwirigi Ita140188 proposed a compromise in which you include the information in the body of the text but leave it out of the infobox. It seems to me that this would be more in line with how things usually work on Wikipedia and also the information you have would still be shared. To what extent would this work for you?
