Buffs, I was actually typing a reply when the thread at AN was archived, either way, I appreciate the notification. I had been following that discussion closely, ever since it was first posted at AN/I and then moved to AN. I had no personal stake in that conversation, as I only made a non-admin closure. However, when the community decided to overturn my closure, I respected that. Wikipedia is community-driven and any decision on Wikipedia is based on consensus. It was clear that there was a consensus to overturn my closure, so an Administrator did so. As I said, I thought the decision of the community should prevail, and it did.

Hello, Vanderwaalforces! I recently shared a draft replacement article for Atlantic Union Bank on behalf of the bank and as part of my work at Beutler Ink. The current entry is problematic for the reasons I've outlined here. I do not edit the main space directly because of my COI, and I am looking for editors to review and implement the proposed draft appropriately.

I've disclosed my COI on the article's Talk page and my profile page. Since you reviewed another company draft of mine not too long ago (Guardant Health), I was wondering if you might be willing to take a look at the draft. Thanks for your consideration!

@Inkian Jason Hi there. I have carefully compared your version and the current version of the article, and I have some questions about why your version omits the fact that this bank was "founded as First Market Bank, FSB on November 4, 1997". Is this information inaccurate or irrelevant?
Also, I noticed that your version contains some statements that sound biased or exaggerated, such as "In 2019, the bank created a division focused on financing for commercial equipment". These statements need to be revised or removed to maintain a neutral point of view and avoid puffery or weasel words. Vanderwaalforces (talk) 17:58, 29 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks for taking an initial look. Atlantic Union Bank was not "founded as First Market Bank, FSB on November 4, 1997", as the article suggests. It is a little confusing, but AUB (formerly Union Bank & Trust) acquired First Market Bank. It is inaccurate to say AUB was founded as First Market Bank. The text "In 2019, the bank created a division focused on financing for commercial equipment", I saw this as a basic operational detail based on Richmond Times-Dispatch, which says:
I think the claim is neutrally worded, but I am certainly open to text changes or removal if you prefer. I am happy to address any other concerns here or on the article's Talk page.
Thanks! Inkian Jason (talk) 18:08, 29 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]
