What to do with a page with "difficult" reference structure[edit]

I would like to work on the page Augmentative and Alternative Communication but the reference structure is very odd As far as I can tell, I need to add a reference in the reference area, and then hand code using Cite error: There are <ref> tags on this page without content in them (see the help page). (in the main text) where I would like it to be inserted so it will show up as a "linked" note ( which then links back to the actual reference) This is a very cumbersome approach, and may explain why so little new information has been added to the page in the last year or two.

What happens in Wikipedia in these situations? Can I recreate the page as it "should" be done, and then nominate that the new page replace the old one? I don't want to change the information, I just want to get it to a stage where it can be edited more easily Thanks Dbm2psu (talk) 13:12, 5 July 2015 (UTC) David July 5, 2015

That article is already a Good Article, which means it already went through a structured review. So, before trying to re-invent it, I would raise this on the talk page of the article or look at the main authors of the article and talk to them as well. Otherwise, the reference structure is fairly standard on the more developed articles. Aboutmovies (talk) 20:16, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

Can you upload the logo for our company to replace the older one you uploaded in 2010?[edit]

Hi there,

My name is David, and I'm the webmaster for Acumed LLC, the company for which you uploaded a logo back in 2010.

Since then, at around 2013, we have a new logo that we would like to be reflected on our Wikipedia entry. However, I cannot replace or upload a new logo to the Acumed entry.

Would it be possible for you to do this? Or could you instruct me how? I'm very sorry to be a bother, but the logo image that's currently on the Acumed entry is now out-of-date and no longer represents our company, and I'd love to see it updated to the most current (that is now displayed prominently on all of our buildings here in Hillsboro!).

The current logo can be found here: http://www.acumed.net/profiles/acumed/themes/custom/resolution/logo.png

Or, if you'd like, I can point you to a much larger, high-resoltion version of the logo elsewhere.

Thank you so much for your help with this, Davidhollandacumed (talk) 22:28, 7 July 2015 (UTC)

Revert on Hillsboro Hops[edit]

What was your reason for making this rollback on Hillsboro Hops? To me, the IP's edits didn't seem to be vandalism. Conifer (talk) 07:43, 11 July 2015 (UTC)

They were unexplained that including the improper removal of a comma, and the removal of context for the non-American readers. Does it meet everyone's definition of vandalism, no, and had there been an edit summary I would have undone instead of rolledback. Aboutmovies (talk) 07:50, 11 July 2015 (UTC)
If it's good-faith, though, shouldn't you include an edit summary? Per WP:Rollback. Conifer (talk) 07:59, 11 July 2015 (UTC)

Updated images of buildings/facilities for the "Acumed" article[edit]

Hi,

This is David Holland, webmaster for Acumed, reaching out to you once again to see if you would be so kind as to upload the two images referenced below, that replace the current ones on the "Acumed" Wikipedia article showing our buildings:

Cornelius Pass Road ( http://images.acumed.net/facilities/Acumed-building-Cornelius-Pass-HQ.jpg ) Brookwood Parkway ( http://images.acumed.net/facilities/Acumed-building-Brookwood-Parkway-facility.jpg )

Constitution of Saint Kitts and Nevis[edit]

Thank you for assessing the article for Wikiproject Law. I was wondering, since you assessed it C class, what areas you think it needs improvement in, and which of the B class criteria it fails? I'd like to know how to further improve the article. ~ ONUnicorn(Talk|Contribs)problem solving 14:17, 13 August 2015 (UTC)

The two issues are that the WP:LEDE should be expanded, and more importantly for me is there is too much reliance on WP:PRIMARY sources. If you review the United States Constitution, which is B class, I did not see any citations to the constitution itself in a quick look. A large portion of this article is sourced to the constitution itself. This is a very common problem in law articles as we attorneys think we are allowed to interpret what the cases and statutes say. Aboutmovies (talk) 17:29, 13 August 2015 (UTC)
Ok, thank you. I'll work on expanding the lede. Not sure where to look for secondary sources that merely summarize the various provisions (which was what I was trying to do with the end part of the article). ~ ONUnicorn(Talk|Contribs)problem solving 18:37, 13 August 2015 (UTC)

Dan Butler[edit]

Sorry about the revert, when I saw the page it had a large amount of errors, I don't know if my browser freaked out or wiki had a template that was broken. Again, sorry about that. Red error text was all over the page, so leaning towards broken template. Esw01407 (talk)

No problem. Aboutmovies (talk) 20:01, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

Re: Chief Kno-Tah[edit]

This article looks pretty good to me. Do you have any interest in nominating it for Good status? If not, I can put it on my 'to do' list, but I already have five articles waiting for GA reviews. Also, apologies if I have already asked you this before. ---Another Believer (Talk) 23:08, 14 September 2015 (UTC)

Go ahead, I don't really have time for in-depth editing anymore, other than rare occasions. Aboutmovies (talk) 05:08, 15 September 2015 (UTC)
OK, sounds good. I will be sure to note that I am nominating the article on your behalf, and may even include you as a co-nominator. This is simply to credit you as the article's primary contributor; need need to actually follow the GA review, unless you wish. Again, this may not be for quite some time, as I am currently waiting for several articles to be reviewed. ---Another Believer (Talk) 20:13, 15 September 2015 (UTC)

Kryptiq Changed Its Name to Enli Health Intelligence[edit]

Wanted to make you aware that Kryptiq has changed its name to "Enli Health Intelligence." The press release announcing the name change can be found here:

http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/kryptiq-becomes-enli-health-intelligence-300143757.html

Additionally, the principal line of business is no longer secure messaging software (the company no longer holds this within its product portfolio). Instead, Enli develops and sells population health IT (i.e. software that helps providers stratify populations, deliver care, and then coordinate care). With this, the company also packages advisory services that focus on transforming the primary care delivery model (adoption of care teams, integration of technology, etc.). The website, not yet fully built-out, can be found at www.enli.net.

I offer this as I believe you have offered the most commentary on Kryptiq historically. I hope this is looked upon as constructive--please feel free to re-point or redirect if warranted.

Thank you -

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Susan Graber Article[edit]

The changes I've made all improve the accuracy and writing of the article. I'm not removing content that is "technically correct"--if I gave that impression previously then I misspoke.

  • The only content I removed from the article is an inaccurate reference to Judge Graber being a "U.S. District Court" judge prior to her appointment on the Oregon Court of Appeals. That statement is untrue and needs to be removed. (The reference is also not "sourced"; if you click on the link that's supposed to support that she was a district court judge, it takes you to an unavailable webpage).
  • The other changes are correcting grammatical errors or adding more information about her career.

If you see anything that is specifically a problem, please let me know and I'm happy to work with you to get it right.

Clyde cancer cluster[edit]

Why is it a C-class article and not higher? What did I not do that I should have done as far as factual accuracy or missing information goes? I'm trying to improve it so that it can become a Good Article, so can you help? Philmonte101 (talk) 06:37, 28 December 2015 (UTC)

I wasn't exactly offended. I just wanted to know if there's really something missing. Philmonte101 (talk) 06:43, 28 December 2015 (UTC)
What I do are quick, first assessments. I skim the article quickly. In this case, I have heard and read about similar issues, such as Love Canal. As you can see by that B class article, there is simply more content (even if you were to limit it to the superfund issues). Aboutmovies (talk) 06:54, 28 December 2015 (UTC)
You're the one with the law degree, and not me, which is why I'm the beta here. Can you tell me, what more is there to add? I felt when I was writing the article that if I wrote more information I'd just be inserting trivia that would confuse the readers. Philmonte101 (talk) 07:14, 28 December 2015 (UTC)

The Argus[edit]

Hi, AM. I noticed your edits to The Hillsboro Argus, giving news that I somehow missed. You're probably thinking about what to do with the articles on that paper and the Forest Grove Leader, after mid-January. Here's my two cents: Although one might be tempted to move The Hillsboro Argus to The Washington County Argus, I would argue that it makes more sense to start a new article, because moving the Hillsboro Argus would take a paper with a very long history and a relatively well-developed article and fold it into a new article while leaving the Forest Grove Leader – a paper with a relatively very short history – as a standalone article, which doesn't make sense to me. Thanks largely to your work, the two articles are relatively well-developed compared to most newspaper articles for mid-sized (or smaller) cities on Wikipedia. If they were stubs, I'd say just move one and merge the other, but they are not. Both deserved to remain as standalone articles that simply point to the new article about their successor, the Washington County Argus. Keeping the three separate would also allow better categorization. The new article would be very short initially, and might even have to be a redirect (to the Hillsboro Argus) initially, but we already have at least two articles from third-party sources: the Hillsboro Tribune one you cited and the (closely related) OPB story, so there should be enough to establish notability before long. WW will probably also cover it soon. I don't think I have enough interest to create that new article myself, but I figured you might be interested in my thoughts on this, considering that I'm one of the few other editors who has spent much time (in recent years) working on WP articles about Portland-area newspapers. Cheers. – SJ Morg (talk) 10:39, 28 December 2015 (UTC)

I agree that the existing articles should maintain their integrity and a new article created for the new paper (sadly not surprising given the mismanagement of Advance since they bought the Argus). I actually first read about it in a Hillsboro Round-up, the last one according to the article, so we will have several sources to start with. I would be interested in writing the article, but I am too busy right now starting a business on the fly. I hope things will calm down by the end of next month, but who knows. Thanks. Aboutmovies (talk) 21:46, 30 December 2015 (UTC)

Christopher Felver[edit]

Hello Aboutmovies. I see you have done some work on the Chrisopher Felver article. I have done quite a bit of editing/research on that article recently and believe it is quite objective at this point. I do not think the note about it being a possible autobiography is relevant anymore. Also, the issue of links to/from the article is being addressed. I'l like to get your input. Thank you - and Happy New Year!Ray Jameson (talk) 03:30, 5 January 2016 (UTC)

Phoseon Technology[edit]

Hi Aboutmovies,

I am curious to find out why you removed external links on the Phoseon Technology page (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phoseon_Technology). Could you please provide an explanation?

thanks, UVLED2U (talk) 15:47, 11 January 2016 (UTC)

The reason was left in the edit summary, which is to review WP:ELNO. I do not know if every single one of these "articles" was written by someone from Phoseon, but most were, meaning they would not be used as sources and thus would be links to be avoided. I will assume you have some sort of relationship with Phoseon and adding these was an attempt to market the company, which is something Wikipedia is not for. If these were links to legitimate media coverage of the company by third-party, independent sources, those would be fine. But not basically spam. Aboutmovies (talk) 16:33, 11 January 2016 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Internet Retailer[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Internet Retailer requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about web content, but it does not credibly indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator. Cahk (talk) 19:25, 18 January 2016 (UTC)

Eliza Dorothea Cobbe, Lady Tuite[edit]

Greetings! You just added the category stating that Lady Tuite was from Dublin City and I wondered if you have a reference for that as so far I can only place her as in the county - probably Doneraile. 🍺 Antiqueight chat 00:16, 19 February 2016 (UTC)

I don't. My assumption is when the infobox has just the name, it is the city, as opposed to it saying County Dublin. Feel free to move it to the county cat. Aboutmovies (talk) 05:46, 19 February 2016 (UTC)

See also[edit]

Technically, the additions to the see also sections of those pages did not repeat the link in the navbox. The link in the navbox is a general list (and an incomplete one) of listing all hospitals in Oregon (which looks like a rather extensive list). The ones added to the see also sections are ones with closer affiliations to each other/closer proximity to each other. I don't think WP:SEEALSO quite applies here. TylerDurden8823 (talk) 07:05, 19 February 2016 (UTC)

Nope, technically they all were linked directly, and the below nav template that I believe is on every Oregon hospital article looks rather complete to me, but let me know which ones are missing. Also, Good Sam would be a lot closer to OHSU than say Tuality or even Providence Portland, and OHSU and Tuality hospital do not have an affiliation (the clinics do), and Providence Portland really has nothing in common other than being another hospital. I could see Legacy Emmanuel as the other Level I, but that would be it, and there is no need given the nav box link. Speaking of Providence Portland Medical Center, OHSU Hospital and St. Vincent's were already linked in the lede. Aboutmovies (talk) 07:36, 19 February 2016 (UTC)

Portlandia statue[edit]

Your objection on 9-15-15 to Scottdoesntknow's inclusion, in the Portland article, of a photo of the Portlandia statue/sculpture in front of the Portland Building is without substance.

The Portlandia sculture is in an unquestionably public location therefore no one can object to displaying/reporting it unadulterated in a journalistic/non-profit-educational endeavor such as Wikipedia. Now if Wikipedia-editor/photo-publisher Scottdoesntknow had cribbed someone else's photo of Portlandia and tried to pass it off as his own, that'd be a problem - proper attribution must be paid - but it appears in this instance that Scottdoesntknow was merely linking to a photo already (and still) published at Wikipedia's Portlandia article, which is perfectly fine. Once a photo's publication passes copyright muster anywhere in Wikipedia it's OK to publish it anywhere in Wikipedia.

To quote Copyright Law of the United States of America - Title 17, U. S. Code:

"§ 120 . Scope of exclusive rights in architectural works63
(a) Pictorial Representations Permitted.—The copyright in an architectural work that has been constructed does not include the right to prevent the making, distributing, or public display of pictures, paintings, photographs, or other pictorial representations of the work, if the building in which the work is embodied is located in or ordinarily visible from a public place."

Are you alleging a violation of the sculptor's copyright of his sculpture, or are you alleging that Scottdoesntknow is passing off someone else's Portlandia photograph as his or her own? Since Scottdoesntknow in the Portland article appears merely to have been linking to Sreejithk2000's photograph used with Wikipedia's Portlandia article and not claiming the photograph as his own, I really don't see an attribution problem here.

You cannot object to anyone else's publication of (nor claim royalties from) an unadulterated, non-disparaging non-commercial photo that is the photographer's own work and is of an item or phenomenon plainly visible to the public. One cannot copyright the public's view regardless of any artist's claim to objects in that view.

Furthermore, copyright law in the U. S. is a civil matter requiring the copyright owner to prove how he or she has been damaged by any violation of his or her copyright. In the case of publication for non-commercial purposes of an unadulterated photograph of a work on public display, that would be damn near impossible to do. BLZebubba (talk) 15:14, 4 March 2016 (UTC)

I am a copyright attorney and know all about copyrights, but you clearly do not. The problem is, you don't understand Wikipedia's policies nor apparently Wikimedia Commons' policies regarding what is a fair use photo. In fact, since you are quoting as to an architectural work you clearly do not understand that under copyright law a statue is not an architectural work (there is some argument as to if a work is physically integrated into a structure, which is not the case with this statue), see §101):
An “architectural work” is the design of a building as embodied in any tangible medium of expression, including a building, architectural plans, or drawings. The work includes the overall form as well as the arrangement and composition of spaces and elements in the design, but does not include individual standard features.
“Pictorial, graphic, and sculptural works” include two-dimensional and three-dimensional works of fine, graphic, and applied art, photographs, prints and art reproductions, maps, globes, charts, diagrams, models, and technical drawings, including architectural plans. Such works shall include works of artistic craftsmanship insofar as their form but not their mechanical or utilitarian aspects are concerned; the design of a useful article, as defined in this section, shall be considered a pictorial, graphic, or sculptural work only if, and only to the extent that, such design incorporates pictorial, graphic, or sculptural features that can be identified separately from, and are capable of existing independently of, the utilitarian aspects of the article.
As in, this photograph of a sculpture would infringe on the Portlandia statue sculptors' copyright (see also Portlandia (statue)#Copyright). Now that you hopefully understand that, I suggest you read Wikipedia:Copyrights and WP:COPYVIO and WP:FAIRUSE and come back with an apology for wasting my time for something we have dealt with many times over the last ten years or so for this particular sculpture.

C Rating Anne Walter Fearn[edit]

Ref Anne Walter Fearn. You appear to have given this article a C rating on the quality scale. If you would explain the reasons I will try to improve it against the criteria detailed in the WikiProject Biography/Assessment for that rating. I apologise if this C rating was done by someone else, but it appears to have been your edit.

Thank you

Sidpickle (talk) 15:28, 6 March 2016 (UTC)

There are several things that standout. First, your WP:LEDE does not properly summarize the article, and only consists of a single sentence for an article with nine main sections. As to the sections, we frown upon single paragraph sections. One or two as an exception would be fine, but I think five are here. Try to consolidate, and try to use more generic titles to match what we do in biographies (such as early life, career, later life). With the amount of text, I would guess about five sections (maybe a sub-section or two in some) would suffice. Not really a big factor as to getting to B class, but try not to start too many paragraphs and sentences with "In 19XX" as it tends to make it look like a timeline, for example instead of "In 1914 the Fearn’s started another trip, this time across China to Russia..." go with "The Fearns started another trip in 1914, this time across China to Russia..." (not there is also a typo in the original of Fearn's, where there would not be an apostrophe. Lastly, for the references, see WP:CITE to combine the identical references using the <ref name="citation name"> parameter. Also, for the one instance where you put in distance, use {{convert|60|mi|km}} so those who use metric will see a distance they can relate to, 60 miles (97 km). Lastly, it needs a brief copyedit, as there is at least one instance of a space before the footnote, a Dr Polk instead of Dr. Polk, and we avoid many abbreviations, such as USA. But the small lede is the biggest issue. Aboutmovies (talk) 23:32, 6 March 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for the update. Fearn was a pioneer and an inspiration to many female doctors who followed. My version tells her story and if I had not spent weeks researching her life and obtaining reference books and materials her tale would not have been told. So I'll leave it to someone better than me to re-edit. I think this rating system is demotivating for editors who are trying to write accurate articles about people who did make a difference - especially when there are so many inaccurate works on Wikipedia that should be getting attention. I am not against criticism when it comes to editing because any author knows that work should be reviewed before it is published because punctuation does get missed and spelling errors do occur. However the current system is like being at school again - "should try harder" and appears to be subjective. I keep referring back to Wikipedia:WikiProject Biography/Assessment to see where I went wrong and cannot connect your comments to the guidance given in this.
OK, so I've had my moan, I'm trying to get together information on the next project and will remember your comments when writing it.
Thanks - Ted Sidpickle (talk) 07:34, 7 March 2016 (UTC)
First, if you are editing for the rating, then you are editing for the wrong reason. I have written hundreds of articles and will often disagree with the assessment. As to the criteria, the problem is that most of the criteria is not really on that page, but there are links to the criteria (mostly after you click on the show for the detailed criteria in the chart). And yes, every rating system is subjective, whether it be in how it is executed or in the design of the criteria. Lastly, you will win no friends on Wikipedia if you disparage the accuracy, as that is an antiquated notion that is no longer really a concern. Aboutmovies (talk) 07:58, 7 March 2016 (UTC)

Wendy Red Star[edit]

Hi again AM,

Would you be willing to review a rationale I wrote for the image I uploaded at File:WendyRedStar.jpg?

Here's what I'm struggling with: WP's policy on portraits for bios of living people indicates fair use is not appropriate. However, most of Red Star's art photographs qualify as self-portraits. I'm hoping you can enlighten me, as I have lost enough sleep over this to be fighting off early-onset dementia. I hold your opinion in high esteem, especially since your Skype talk on Saturday! − Grand'mere Eugene (talk) 16:57, 8 March 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for your response. So if I take a picture of the image with my cell phone, that "transforms" it? But it sounds like the image of a living person is not okay under fair use, so maybe just ask for it to be deleted? ``Grand'mere Eugene (talk) 22:56, 8 March 2016 (UTC)
Taking a picture of the picture does not transform it. If you used your cell phone to take a picture of the artist and the doll (as in they are standing in front of you, well not the doll), then no copyright issue as the picture (potentially for the doll). Otherwise, correct, you almost never can use fair use for a picture of a living person. Best to have that image deleted. Aboutmovies (talk) 23:13, 8 March 2016 (UTC)
Thanks, will do. Sigh. Grand'mere Eugene (talk) 23:32, 8 March 2016 (UTC)

Thank You for Assessing Bank of America, N. A. v. Caulkett: Advice on Improving the Article's Quality?[edit]

Thank you for your assessment of Bank of America, N. A. v. Caulkett—my first attempt at creating a Wikipedia article. Having created my first Wikipedia article, I now want to make that article the best that it can be, and I was hoping that you could advise me on how I might improve it. I'm planning to expand the article's current "Opinion of the Court" section into a broader "Supreme Court" section; there, I'd like to add a summary of (1) each party's respective argument(s) in the Supreme Court; and (2) the oral argument in the case. I think that the addition of those summaries would about round out the article, content-wise. If you have additional suggestions for how I might improve the article, I would gladly welcome them. Thank you! Best, -- Passerculus90 (talk) 17:00, 18 March 2016 (UTC)

The biggest issue right now is almost all of your sourcing is to case law and statutes, or in other words primary sources. The problem with that is you are interpreting these, not a secondary source. A good legal article uses both. See these cases for featured articles you can use as good examples. Aboutmovies (talk) 19:25, 18 March 2016 (UTC)
Understood. Thanks for your feedback. I'm usually better at RTFM, but I've dropped the ball on my sourcing here, it appears. Alas, I'll fix the sourcing issue in short course. And I'll be a better Wikipedian for it. Thanks again. Best, -- Passerculus90 (talk) 21:08, 18 March 2016 (UTC)

Capture - playoffs.PNG

Hi,

I wonder where you see | playoff_appearances = parameter listed? Because I can't find it at Template:Infobox basketball club or at Template:Infobox basketball club/doc. I suppose there's a reason this parameter is not used anywhere, so I guess this will have to go here or here. – Sabbatino (talk) 11:35, 8 April 2016 (UTC)

See the screenshot. Did you try editing the actual template and then CTL + F? Also, it is disingenuous to say it is not used anywhere when you also removed it from other NBA articles. [1][2]. Those are just the first two articles I went to, so I will assume you did this on all of them. Aboutmovies (talk) 17:34, 8 April 2016 (UTC)
None of the articles used that parameter until that IP user decided to add it to articles. – Sabbatino (talk) 17:46, 8 April 2016 (UTC)
You also failed to tell me where to find it, because I couldn't. And that screenshot doesn't really tell me anything as I want to see all the parameters. So a direct link would be nice. Nevermind. Found it myself. – Sabbatino (talk) 17:49, 8 April 2016 (UTC)

According to the 2008 version I tagged, "Now in his 90s, Bickham resides in Oregon and is an active participant in the movement to abolish capital punishment in the United States." So, I guess that was lost in the expansion. Aboutmovies (talk) 06:04, 8 May 2016 (UTC)

Project assessment[edit]

Just a quick hint, but, because the class rating of articles is the same for all projects, except for a very few that don't use a particular rating, you can add the same class rating for all the project assessment banners when doing any other. You could have done it here. Then there is less for others to do later on. Anyway thanks for the work. ww2censor (talk) 10:34, 16 May 2016 (UTC)

I've been doing assessments for nearly a decade, and while I agree that the ratings should be uniform, in practice I have come across instances where some projects did not agree with me. There have been arguments that the class could actually differ between projects. Thus, I only apply the rating to WikiProjects that I am a part of. Aboutmovies (talk) 10:39, 16 May 2016 (UTC)

That registration info is from 1985, not from the original filing. The SOS updates that info each time. If this was a newer corporation you would be able to click onto the articles of incorporation. Not to mention, being president does not mean you are a founder, let alone the only founder. All of the literature I have see (specifically say the cited reliable sources) say co-founder. Perhaps find an old SEC filing that talks about the history, but that screen shot from the SOS does not say what you want it to say. Aboutmovies (talk) 17:46, 4 June 2016 (UTC)
