Please concentrate on improving Wikipedia[edit]

I'm getting tired of your personal comments directed at me [1] [2] [3] [4] [5]. Please focus on improving Wikipedia, rather than on editors. If you have a problem with my behavior, please choose an appropriate venue, such as starting with my talk page. --Ronz (talk) 17:17, 30 November 2009 (UTC)

I apologize for the "overzealous" adjective in my comments (WP:SORRY) (for the record, I did start on your talk page [6].) I realize in retrospect that I may be succumbing to the rather common wikifault of WP:OWN with the Angel investor article, as defending it from linkspam has taken quite a lot of time for several of us for many years. I'm therefore going to take a break from the article for a bit, so as not to prolong the discussion (note; however, that before reading your note here I had just supplied a more recent primary reference for the EBAN name.) I believe the proposed EL solution is a rational one that takes into account your comments and the article's best interests, so I hope that someone edits the article to include it...or I will when I return, if there are no major objections. Thank you for your contributions. Yorker (talk) 07:28, 1 December 2009 (UTC)
Like many company name changes, the old name may linger. We have a source that addresses the name change. In light of this, evidence that they still use the old name on occasion means little.
I'm waiting a bit longer for the editors you canvassed to respond. --Ronz (talk) 17:28, 1 December 2009 (UTC)

Rethink your WP:REFUND request[edit]

I think you watch too much X-Files. You'll want to edit the request to make only valid arguments and not unproven accusations. By the way, the "article" was one gigantic piece of WP:PUFFERY, so I would not try and take too much credit for it, if I were you. (talk→ BWilkins ←track) 11:00, 19 July 2011 (UTC)

[sigh] Maybe so. And although I can't check the original article, it may be that I'm guilty of adding some references which you may be construing as puffery. But if that's the case, it was in a good faith effort to provide legitimate 3rd party sources for any statements. There seems to be a somewhat fine line here with all this. In any event, if and when the article is restored, I'll go back to see if any of my edits (or those of others) should be eliminated or re-written to avoid perceptions of WP:PUFFERY. (But isn't it just a little weird that the one and only Wiki-edit ever made by that one account was the redirect on that one page? Oh well, I guess it's none of my business, right?)

David S. Rose is the page restored. It was redirected. When it is redirected you will get a redirected from line at the top of the article. You can click on that name. In the history I saw it was a bigger different article before, so I undid the redirect so that the previous article is now visible. Graeme Bartlett (talk) 08:03, 1 August 2011 (UTC)

Concerning your edits[edit]

It is a hassle to deal with them. (talk) 22:05, 12 October 2011 (UTC)

(I've refactored the section heading, removing the accusation of COI) --Ronz (talk) 17:04, 20 October 2011 (UTC)

World Factoring Yearbook[edit]

I'm leaving this message as you're listed as a current participant of WikiProject Business. I was informed yesterday that the current World Factoring Yearbook (circa £150) is now free for download as an ebook. It's a matter of filling out this form. I'm not sure if you'll find this useful as a reliable source, but I thought I should let you know that it's freely available online. I apologise in advance if this doesn't interest you! All the best, The Cavalry (Message me) 15:18, 23 February 2012 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

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.
