@SoWhy: I would note that the page was speedy deleted once as promotional with roughly the same content, though I respect your judgement. I would now suggest that since notability is not inherited by association and the page does little more than state the business exists and was sold, that this be merged with Rakuten, Inc. since they purchased Voyagein. 331dot (talk) 10:31, 22 August 2017 (UTC)
- @331dot: Fine with me. The association with the notable company is sufficient to demonstrate that an alternative to deletion, i.e. merging/redirecting, exists (remember kids, WP:ATD applies to all kinds of deletion ). Declining the speedy does not mean the page has to stay after all. Regards SoWhy 10:35, 22 August 2017 (UTC)
@Theodoric.: Hi there. I created the page as it is an established company that got a major buyout acquisition and is still growing and running. I would like to point out that the there are multiple Rakuten subsidiaries like like Viki that have pages https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Viki_(website) and are very relevant on its own. The company Voyagin still runs as a separate entity from Rakuten and should have a standalone page, regarding adding more information to the page that will make it more relevant and informative is agreed.
Did Rakuten die?
I am watching the Warriors-Celtics game, and the Warriors are wearing a Rakuten patch on the upper left strap of their jersey, just like when they wear the number of a former Warrior who has recently passed away. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:646:C403:F100:3897:ED66:4D7B:C024 (talk) 01:31, 17 November 2017 (UTC)
