Merger discussion[edit]

Writing essays/guidelines[edit]

Unfortunately it seems anybody who makes a bold attempt to significantly improve a company or CEO article gets some of anti paid editing warriors making wild accusations. It's a problem I think, especially given that so many business articles have been hijacked by PR operatives and the cruft added often goes undetected, so are often in a poor state and need a neutral editor to sort out. If you look to see what new pages or proposed drafts get deleted/rejected there is a major problem I see on here with people who declare a COI and get their work rejected or dismissed as an advert. I've seen a lot of quite notable firms and businesspeople rejected because people don't like the fact that it's a clear COI or is worded in a way which isn't quite neutral. Do you think perhaps a detailed essay on how to write business articles and what to avoid/include might be a good idea? We're missing out on a lot of genuinely notable business articles on here because of this issue I think, and the content should really be treated as fairly as any other subject.♦ Dr. Blofeld 10:17, 24 May 2016 (UTC)

@Dr. Blofeld: Having just rescued John D Wood & Co. from the wiki-bitbucket, I believe this is more than just a matter of COI editing. I believe it is a matter of a general anti-business sentiments. Ottawahitech (talk) 19:54, 5 July 2016 (UTC)
Let's AGF here. There might be an anti-business attitude among some, especially after having been inundated with a lot of CoI stuff. As for the John D Wood & Co. article, it reads promotionally and it doesn't pass either NCORP or GNG. I agree with Dr. Blofeld that an essay of best practices is needed although I would assume such a thing already exists. With the number of crap articles on businesses we have here I have a hard time believing that "We're missing out on a lot of genuinely notable business articles".

@Chris troutman and Dr. Blofeld: I agree a detailed essay on how to write business articles and what to avoid/include would be a great asset. Anyone? Ottawahitech (talk) 15:20, 6 July 2016 (UTC)please ping me

Business Insurance[edit]

The article Business insurance has been a redirect to Insurance since 2007. Before that time there was an elaborate article on the topic. Just wondering if there is anyone here interested in reviving the old article. Ottawahitech (talk) 19:28, 10 June 2016 (UTC)please ping me

Since no one has commented, I thought I would simply revert User:Kuru's redirection of Business insurance so that the original article is available and can be edited. Thoughts? Ottawahitech (talk) 14:55, 28 July 2016 (UTC)please ping me
@Ottawahitech:, Kuru from 2007 seemed to feel that the elaborate, original article was a copyright violation. No objections to re-opening the stub obviously; there are millions of sources that can be used to develop an original commercial/business insurance article. Kuru (talk) 15:14, 28 July 2016 (UTC)

Looking for feedback on a Draft[edit]

Notice to participants at this page about adminship[edit]

Many participants here create a lot of content, have to evaluate whether or not a subject is notable, decide if content complies with BLP policy, and much more. Well, these are just some of the skills considered at Wikipedia:Requests for adminship.

So, please consider taking a look at and watchlisting this page:

You could be very helpful in evaluating potential candidates, and even finding out if you would be a suitable RfA candidate.

Many thanks and best wishes,
