There appears to be an omission ... I assume "Ginni Rometty took" is missing from the first sentence of the section "IBM's Reorganization". —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.112.205.190 (talk) 19:14, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:BWIBM.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:BWIBM.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Accurate IBM India Population Figures?[edit]

I saw the typo in IBM's population figures for 2009, and went looking for a source to verify the correct number. I couldn't find one on the web, and as an IBMer (see my talk page), when I looked around internally I couldn't find one either - apparently the numbers for 2008 and 2009 hasn't been published yet. Is there a verifiable source for these 2008, 2009 IBM India employment numbers? And if not, should we consider altering the chart to reflect the most recently published figures? That would appear to be 2007, according to this press releaseand this Wall Street Journal article. Paul C. Lasewicz (talk) 13:26, 2 December 2009 (UTC)

Also, footnote #2 referencing a line in the second paragraph is inaccurate - it uses a 2007 annual report as a reference to 2009 numbers. If that footnote is to be cited accurately, the line should read "to nearly 74,000 in 2007." Or something to that effect. Paul C. Lasewicz (talk) 14:20, 3 December 2009 (UTC)

Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessarily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request it's removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:

  • http://www.cbronline.com/news/ibm_opens_new_business_analytics_centre_091105
    Triggered by \bcbronline\.com\b on the local blacklist

If you would like me to provide more information on the talk page, contact User:Cyberpower678 and ask him to program me with more info.

From your friendly hard working bot.—cyberbot II NotifyOnline 18:04, 8 December 2013 (UTC)

 Resolved This issue has been resolved, and I have therefore removed the tag, if not already done. No further action is necessary.—cyberbot II NotifyOnline 00:19, 4 March 2014 (UTC)

Employees in 1900[edit]

The article currently has a table for showing the increasing amount of employees, but the table begins with the year 1900 when IBM was not founded yet.

Could it be, that the correct year here is 1990? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 194.97.140.129 (talk) 11:27, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
