Untitled[edit]

The article says: "where his mother and the Governor of Ohio live." That implies that his mother and the Governor of Ohio are living together as a family, no? Probably that was not the original intent. If that was the intent, the article should say which Governor of Ohio his mother is or was living with. Is his father one of the governors of that state?Kim 金 03:38, 30 May 2004 (UTC)

The list of brands here is the same as on the Limited Brands article, but is less accurate. Should it be deleted? Chrisny2 01:52, 14 June 2006 (UTC)

the list of brands are identical. Stuph 09:42, 14 June 2006 (UTC)

Trivia:

Les wexner visage is currently on a giant billboard in downtown columbus as the face of death. A joke by nationwide in their, life comes at you fast campaign. Wex is on the board of directors and called someone childish, is what I heard, but the poster is definetly of him as an aged Fabio. I don't think it has a place in the article but, people on the talk might find it interesting. Squanderdalfast 01:45, 14 August 2006 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Picasso Nude in a blackArmchair.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Picasso Nude in a blackArmchair.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 ensure 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.

False reference?[edit]

Currently the no. 2 reference, on the line "Allegations have been made that Wexner's The Limited Inc. has used slave labor both in the United States and abroad," leads to a site that browsers with the capability label as a "reported attack site." Is this a tricky way to try and lure people onto a malicious webpage, or a valid link that just happens to be reported by the web browser? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 140.254.236.22 (talk) 23:11, 17 October 2012 (UTC)

My name is Carly and I work for L Brands. I recognize that since I work for L Brands I have a clear conflict of interest tied to related articles and will utilize the talk pages to discuss comments regarding this article. I noticed there are a few errors on this article and want to flag for the community first for transparency, before I make any edits. I would like to make sure the article is up to date and reflects general consensus. Here are the edits for consideration:

1. At the end of the first paragraph in the “Career” section consider adding: “Wexner was named to Harvard Business Review’ Top 100 Best Performing CEOs of 2015; he was ranked at #11 [citation: https://hbr.org/2015/11/the-best-performing-ceos-in-the-world] – this is a common addition to other Wikipedia articles of CEOs on this list.

2. Capitalize “Pink” in the next paragraph and delete C.O. Bigelow [citation: http://www.dispatch.com/content/stories/business/2012/01/27/c-o-bigelow-set-to-close-easton-shop.html].

3. Delete: “separation from Limited Brands by sale of 75% to Sun Captial Investments, made official as of August 3, 2007” [citation: http://phx.corporate-ir.net/phoenix.zhtml?c=94854&p=irol-newsArticle&ID=1439367].

4. Delete: “separation from Limited Brands by sale of 75% to Golden Gate Capital, made official as of July 6, 2007” [citation: http://phx.corporate-ir.net/phoenix.zhtml?c=94854&p=irol-newsArticle&ID=1597626].

5. Delete the last two sentences in the “Career” section: “Allegations have been made that Wexner's The Limited Inc. has used slave labor both in the United States and abroad.[3] These charges have been made particularly against Victoria's Secret which is part of The Limited Inc.: and owned by Wexner.” – The company has addressed these allegations and mainstream media has covered it [citation: http://wwd.com/fashion-news/textiles/jordan-labor-conditions-improving-but-problems-persist-471288/].

6. Add citation to the sentence about being a major funder of the Wexner Center of the Arts at the Ohio State University [citation: http://wexarts.org/about/history].

7. Delete the paragraph that starts with “In 1999, Wexner paid…” – This paragraph is not cited.

8. Add citation to the sentence about “Spring 2012 marked the end of Wexner’s chairmanship…” [citation: https://news.osu.edu/news/2012/06/08/newsitem3439/].

9. Delete the sentence “The guest quarters of the property take…” – The link to the citation is broken.

10. Edit the sentence: “The estate is the location of the Annual…” so it now reads: “The estate is the location of the Annual New Albany classic Invitational Grand Prix & Family Day benefiting The Center for Family Safety and Healing” – not Columbus Coalition Against Family Violence. [citation: http://www.nationwidechildrens.org/news-room-articles/the-center-for-family-safety-and-healing?contentid=97279]

11. Delete the paragraph that begins with “Also nearby is the major shopping village of Easton Town Center…” – this is false and the full information can be found at the following [citation: http://eastontowncenter.com/Guest-Information/The-Easton-Story].

12. Delete the following “for felony solicitation of prostitution and procuring a person under the age of 18 for prostitution.” – the link for citation #14 is broken and this seems to be an extra line of detail that is not needed for an article on Wexner.

13. Delete: “Wexner also was heavily involved in supporting the war against Iraq in 2003.” – This is not reflected by general consensus.

My name is Carly and I work at L Brands. Recently I posted some comments regarding some points that might help as the page continues to develop. Since we haven’t heard anything back from the community I’m planning on making the previously suggested updates in the next few days. I recognize that because I work for L Brands I have a clear conflict of interest, but we believe these are appropriate additions/changes to the article and everything is cited. I understand that this might be changed by various editors and that is why I have attempted to include language that maintains NPOV and is verifiable online. My aim for these updates is not to make this article a glowing review, but to make sure it includes some basic background information that reflects general consensus.
