lol[edit]

  • scratches head*

if wikipedia wants to do advertising... do it in little text boxes like google does on their search results, with 'paid content' at the top of the box.

but this half-underhanded secret stuff.... gross! —Preceding unsigned comment added by Decora (talkcontribs) 23:39, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

campaign contributions[edit]

apparently campaign contributions by boards of directors and CEOs are not considered 'encyclopedic'! i do apologize, for my impropriety.

but anyways... the guys mentioned in the article have given tens of thousands of dollars to republican and democratic candidates... Jeff Branman gave $5500 to the Comcast Political Action committee, which has given 5 million dollars to political candidates since the year 1997. rubenstein gave $1,000 to Randy Duke Cunningham (R, now in prison), and $2000 to Chuck Schumer (D), among others. again, not encyclopedic.

The cofounder of Adobe gave $100,000 to the democratic senatorial campaign committee in the year 2000. Other employees of Adobe have given tens of thousands of dollars to politicians since the year 2000. also not encyclopedic.

Damnit, I forgot to mention that David M Rubenstein has lobbied Congress to keep Private Equity firm bosses taxes at %15, by calling their income 'Carried interest' . [1] (also not belonging in an encylcopedia)

Featured Article?[edit]

Nice bit of free publicity from Wikipedia there. Steve Graham (talk) 12:31, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

agreed. This is odd. Does wikipedia have any kind of relationship with this company? Feature articles shouldn't focus on a company! Bmackenty (talk) 15:16, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
Quite so.. What on EARTH is this doing being todays Featured Article? Any illumination would be welcome. Sle (talk) 19:37, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
See Elderly Instruments. I'm not sure what makes this company noteworthy. Did it win an award for being sold the most number of times in 10 years?? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 65.127.188.10 (talk) 15:39, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
Articles are considered Featured because of their quality, not because they're a company. Wikipedia has no association with this company that I am aware of (and they publish yearly reports of any large donations/budgetary contributions). To say "X cannot be a featured article because it is a company" would prevent us recognising any articles about companies that are of high quality. Ironholds (talk) 15:54, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
Really weird main page article. Most of the time the article on the main page is notable, or at the least a bit of fun trivia. This however just seems to be "hey guys, there's this awesome company selling stuff you might want to buy!!!1!!!". I have no problems with it getting featured article status, but it being the main item on wikipedia that millions of people see when they log in? Pretty weird. -- Mystman666 (Talk) 15:52, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
What exactly is the "weird" thing about it? Do you feel it doesn't meet the criteria for Featured status? Ironholds (talk) 18:42, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
Anything can be FA if it meets the requirements, but what makes this company noteworthy? I still can't tell. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 65.127.188.10 (talk) 16:31, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
It meets the notability criteria, as there are plenty of published third-party sources on it. Dabomb87 (talk) 00:38, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

Could Ironholds and Dabomb87 please tell us if they have any connection to or interest in Scene7? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.195.185.97 (talk) 10:27, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

I do not, and I doubt that Ironholds does either. Dabomb87 (talk) 14:06, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

Competitors[edit]

Who are their competitors —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.202.2.0 (talk) 14:44, 12 February 2009 (UTC)

It says it right in the first section: RichFX and CrossMedia Services. Gary King (talk) 04:14, 24 February 2009 (UTC)
This is incorrect. CrossMedia Services has been called ShopLocal for almost 5 years now. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 63.231.46.253 (talk) 00:24, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
ShopLocal is also not competing on at all the same level as actual dynamic imaging providers--they're providing a subset of that service only (e-catalog development), plus marketing. mec623 19:14, 26 July 2011 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mec623 (talkcontribs)

no discussion[edit]

Incredible. This article made it all the way to FA without any talk page discussion!?! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 65.127.188.10 (talk) 13:59, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

The article went through a peer review, a good article nomination, and two featured article candidacies. Dabomb87 (talk) 14:24, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
And yet one measly comment on the page actually meant for discussing the article. Wow. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 65.127.188.10 (talk) 14:35, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
Well I'm currently shepherding an article through FAC that is in the same situation, mainly because I am the only person who really worked on it. Ironholds (talk) 15:55, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
What article? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 65.127.188.10 (talk) 17:38, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
Norman Birkett; just about every development from its previous 3kb article up to the current one has been by me. Ironholds (talk) 18:43, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

spell?[edit]

Lots of spelling errp\ors, i will start fixing them —Preceding unsigned comment added by 64.30.106.238 (talk) 19:28, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

Could you give some examples? Gary King (talk) 19:46, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

How on Earth ?[edit]

This article appears to violate a whole number of cherished Wiki guidelines not least WP:NOT, WP:NPOV and Spam to name but a few. How can this get past the Featured Article Review ? Is this not the most obvious Conflict of Interest if ever there was one ?

How is this possible ? Help !

--Rbudegb (talk) 20:45, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

I believe you mean Featured article candidates. Can you provide examples? Dabomb87 (talk) 22:47, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

Wikipedia Providing Advertising Again[edit]

I would like to register my great concern that this article made it through the review process. For all its pretensions to being a factual article (and I assume that it is factually correct), what it really is is free advertising for the company. I thought that after the Elderly Instruments business last year we wouldn't see any more of these, but it seems I was wrong. This article is the kind of thing that makes me ashamed of Wikipedia. RomanSpa (talk) 23:21, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

This article made it to the Wikipedia front page because it is a featured article, meaning that it was one of the best the encyclopedia to offer, not because it is advertising. Dabomb87 (talk) 00:37, 1 March 2009 (UTC)
and who, exactly decided that, and how did they come to the decision?Decora (talk) 00:59, 1 March 2009 (UTC)
The wikipedia community decided it at WP:FAC after a consensus had been reached... No one person determines the fate of a FA. Cheers. Imperat§ r(Talk) 01:37, 1 March 2009 (UTC)
