Alan Howard (hedge fund manager) - Proposed Additions (Continued)[edit]

Hi Edward,

I am following up on a conversation we had in July regarding some proposed additions to the Wikipedia page of Alan Howard (hedge fund manager).

First and foremost, thank you very much for your feedback - I am still working out the intricacies of Wikipedia so any help or guidance is much appreciated!

I have put the proposed additions in my Sandbox for now. I'm aware you mentioned putting the suggestions into the article talkpage, but I was advised elsewhere that Sandbox may be the best starting point. Additionally, as you advised, I have only left the philanthropy section to make it a more digestible proposal (with all relevant citations included). Can you please advise if this is a better approach and how else I can help?

Thank you in advance.

Thanks![edit]

Good thing I've got people cleaning up after me. "The" Anglican priest Roly Bain? Who knew? That's what happens when a Yankee tries to write about a Brit. 0;-D --MelanieN (talk) 21:00, 6 September 2016 (UTC)

Nice article and hooks, by the way MelanieN. I grew up in the US and UK, and personally am not much bothered one way or the other. However, the "the" thing always gets picked up at Wikipedia:Main Page/Errors, so it's best to dispose of it early to stop people moaning about DYK being riddled with errors! Curiously, I started the articles on both his parents. Edwardx (talk) 21:08, 6 September 2016 (UTC)
I noticed that. It was fun to discover that both of his parents were notable - something I didn't realize until after the article was published. Interesting guy, all the way around. --MelanieN (talk) 21:14, 6 September 2016 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Reserved (retail)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Reserved (retail) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

The coverage (references, external links, etc.) does not seem sufficient to justify this article passing Wikipedia:General notability guideline and the more detailed Wikipedia:Notability (companies) requirement. If you disagree and deprod this, please explain how it meets them on the talk page in the form of "This article meets criteria A and B because..." and ping me back. Thank you. This proposed deletion was started by User:Piotrus

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

File:Albert Heijn Headquarters by Niels Kim.jpg[edit]

I wonder if the current Ahold-Delhaize HQ is this building File:Albert Heijn Headquarters by Niels Kim.jpg. It's from 2007 so I wonder if, even if the building's same, if it's changed WhisperToMe (talk) 13:24, 26 September 2016 (UTC)

Yes! From their website, they are based at Provincialeweg 11, 1506 MA Zaandam, and the street view shows that very building. Edwardx (talk) 13:54, 26 September 2016 (UTC)
