Merge with Yahoo! Research?[edit]

Isn't this page about the same organization as Yahoo! Research?

It is. Perhaps we should turn it into a true redirect, as one user essentially did. Me, Myself & I (talk) 05:25, 18 February 2016 (UTC)
On second though, maybe they should be merged. Yahoo! Research is the current name of the organization that serves this purpose in Yahoo. Me, Myself & I (talk) 02:00, 19 February 2016 (UTC)

Copy-pasted material[edit]

I've removed some material that seemed to be copied from Yahoo's Tumblr site. Actually, the entire article seems to be just bits of information copied from different articles on that site. Any ideas? Me, Myself & I (talk) 05:23, 18 February 2016 (UTC)

Yeah, the whole page looks just like an advertisement. It needs a major overhaul. Given that there is a major reorg, it is probably the right time to fix this page. jfeise (talk) 08:48, 18 February 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for the reply. I did some digging and it's directly copied from this page which now redirects to the one I pasted earlier. User:Mikesefanov is responsible for putting the most content on this page, but they haven't done anything since they edited the Yahoo! Labs and Yahoo! Research pages, so a response is unlikely. I'm not very well versed in the copyvio procedures if the case is this clear – do we just axe the content? I've added some more precise cleanup tags for now.

Upon consideration, I decided to remove the content for now. Perhaps I or another editor could try summarizing what non-promotional info there is here some other time. Me, Myself & I (☮) (talk) 23:37, 23 February 2016 (UTC)
