Help on San Francisco Bay Area[edit]

Hey everyone, I am currently working on a rework of the Bay Area's article. It is currently not in a great shape, with a lot of missing citations and entire sections that are completely blank. I could use some help on this immense task, so if any editors are free and have time to help out, please check out my sandbox at User:haha169/sandbox and help me fill it in. Much appreciated! --haha169 (talk) 09:01, 18 September 2017 (UTC)

Proposed draft for "Move (company)" article[edit]

On behalf of Move, a California-based company, I am proposing expanded and updated Move (company) and Realtor.com articles. Given my conflict of interest, I will not edit either article directly and ask independent editors to review them for accuracy, neutrality, and verifiability. During this project, Move has provided feedback to ensure accuracy. I've saved my Move draft here and my Realtor.com draft here.

Both articles have edit requests on their respective talk pages, which you're welcome to review if you're interested. I think an editor is in the process of reviewing the Realtor.com article, so I am wondering if a member of WikiProject California might be willing to review the Move draft.

Thanks! Inkian Jason (talk) 16:11, 27 October 2017 (UTC)

Disambiguation links on pages tagged by this wikiproject[edit]

Wikipedia has many thousands of wikilinks which point to disambiguation pages. It would be useful to readers if these links directed them to the specific pages of interest, rather than making them search through a list. Members of WikiProject Disambiguation have been working on this and the total number is now below 20,000 for the first time. Some of these links require specialist knowledge of the topics concerned and therefore it would be great if you could help in your area of expertise.

A list of the relevant links on pages which fall within the remit of this wikiproject can be found at http://69.142.160.183/~dispenser/cgi-bin/topic_points.py?banner=WikiProject_California

Please take a few minutes to help make these more useful to our readers.— Rod talk 13:58, 3 December 2017 (UTC)

Blake Ricciardi[edit]

Would someone from this WikiProject take a look at Blake Ricciardi? I am unable to find any sources which show that this person in Wikipedia notable enough for a stand-alone article per WP:GNG or WP:BIO. Googling gets a number of hits, but these seem to be mainly primary sources or trivia mentions and not the significant coverage in independent reliable sources needed for Wikipedia notability. It has been suggested that the article be taken to AfD, but I'm asking here to see if someone might be aware of better sources which can be used. The article was recently heaviy edited by an IP (most likely someone connected to the subject) who turned it into a mish-mash over promotional content. It was also most likely created by someone connected to subject. The article has been restored to the last table version before the IP editing, but even that doesn't seem good enough to avoid AfD. Thanks in advance. -- Marchjuly (talk) 21:54, 12 December 2017 (UTC)
