I'm going to try to cleanup and add some citations for this article. Edit 1: Did a quick patent search, seems like the earliest patent of using a "sheet" to provide protection for a screen was filed in 1963 by Herbert Schlegel Removable protective cover for television having a tinted portion in the screen area. On line 62 it mentions his invention could be "used to protect the picture screen when moving the receiver". Edit 2: I don't have much time but I'll try my best. Somebody else might have to correctly format it after I'm done. Edit 3 : I think this article needs a major rewrite and rewording.

Forgot about this project for a year, and this happens, the patent number has an extra 6 after it. Somebody please fix that error. I'm thinking about just deleting the whole article and rewriting this thing. andrew

The article sounds like a bit of a sales pitch at the moment.

I disagree ^ The content is actual history of the screen protectors. All names have been deleted except the original inventors name. This is not an advertisement in any way. Only HISTORY! ScreenProtector

I sort of agree with both of you. It seem neutral enough to me (WP:NPOV), but isn't very encyclopedic, and the most glaring problem is the COMPLETE LACK OF CITATION (WP:CITE)! Someone with more subject knowledge than me needs to clean it up. (talk) 18:27, 4 September 2009 (UTC)

I know the entire history of the Screen Protector(s. I would like to be the Administrator of this page. Also this is a private seller making a statement. We do not sell screen protectors however we do monitor the screen protector industry.

There seems to be the potential for a good article there. The main thing lacking, as has already been said, is citations; all articles need to be referenced to reliable sources: stuff like industry journals, professional reviews, and so on. Look at other quality articles for examples of how this is generally done. One or two pictures are always useful too. Don't worry too much about correct layout; the main thing is to have the material in some form, which others can tidy up if needed. It's good to have an expert looking after the article, however, it needs to be realised that there is no such thing as article administrators; in Wikipedia, (almost) all articles can be edited by anybody (see WP:OWN), but those who seem to know what they're talking about (especially when they provide quality references) generally prevail.
