Nomination of Leadership of the Walt Disney Company for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Leadership of the Walt Disney Company is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Leadership of the Walt Disney Company until a consensus is reached, and anyone, including you, is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article until the discussion has finished.

New discussion over WP:UNDUE at Primerica[edit]

There’s a discussion about the unflattering categorization of a company according to a minority opinion that falls under the umbrella of this WikiProject.Talk:Primerica#Discussion_about_undue_weight_of_minority_viewpoint ]] I have a conflict as an employee of Primerica. Would any editors be willing to join in the discussion? The issue requires the informed viewpoints of neutral participants. Thanks.TermLifeOG (talk) 16:37, 11 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Proposed infobox for corporate groupings[edit]

I've been working on an infobox for corporate groupings, though I'm not entirely certain if there is a proper name for them. This would come in especially handy for articles such as Big Tech, Big Four accounting firms, and perhaps other corporate group sorts too, such as the Baby Bells, or (to a lesser extent) cartels such as the Phoebus cartel. Labels would include logos, focus location (Silicon Valley for Big Tech, Michigan for the Big Three in automobile manufacturers e.g.), major companies, minor companies, sector, related groups, and so on. Template:Infobox company does not suffice in providing this information currently.

Does anyone have any comments on what this phenomenon should be called and how a proper infobox should flow from this? TheNk22 (talk) 18:50, 17 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

I would be happy to take a look but do not see the template. --CNMall41 (talk) 03:30, 30 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

New page for A&O Shearman[edit]

Hi all, I’m hoping someone can help with a new Wikipedia page please. From May 1, the law firms Allen & Overy and Shearman & Sterling will merge to become A&O Shearman. I work for Kekst CNC, a communications agency that is working with both law firms ahead of their merger in May.


We're engaging as a member of the Wikipedia community having signed the official agency/Wikipedia agreement set out here Wikipedia:Statement_on_Wikipedia_from_participating_communications_firms. This means we follow guidelines, most importantly understanding we have COI, meaning we let members of the Wikipedia community decide (or not decide) to make changes for us.


With the launch of the new firm, a new Wikipedia page will need to be set up. We’ll be submitting a draft after 1 May due to legal requirements. We have two questions:

1.     What should happen to the existing A&O and S&S pages on Wikipedia? We can include this content in a merged draft for A&O Shearman if this is the right process.

2.     Please can an editor review our draft once made available in May please?


Thanks. MichaelPWhite (talk) 16:11, 25 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

@MichaelPWhite:, thanks for the questions. First, there does not "need" to be a new page set up, per se. The creation of a new page depends on notability. Is the new firm notable on its own. Is it a true merger or is one acquiring the other? There are many caveats and what sources say will determine the best route (merger pages, creation of a redirect, new page, etc.). You are free to create a draft and someone will review but it may not be necessary depending. --CNMall41 (talk) 03:34, 30 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@MichaelPWhite:, I see that A&O Shearman was created by user @Zotezangu: on May 3, 2024. Seeking your opinions about whether the other two should be merged into the new or if the new one is even necessary. I see a lot of routine coverage for A&O Shearman but nothing that really amounts to WP:ORGCRIT. --CNMall41 (talk) 04:10, 13 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@CNMall41 Thank you for pointing that out.
@MichaelPWhite The Page is already up on Wikipedia. I shall stop any further edits regarding the company. Thank you. Zotezangu (talk) 08:05, 13 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I see it exists. I am hoping for your opinion. Was going to recommend for deletion but wanted to discuss if there was a better path first. --CNMall41 (talk) 18:09, 13 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks all - we've added some suggested copy to the talk page of the new A&O Shearman page. If someone would be able to review, that would be much appreciated!

@CNMall41 @Zotezangu Hi both - I was wondering if either of you could help with my request above? I would really appreciate your review of the suggested copy that we have put on the A&O Shearman talk page. Thanks! MichaelPWhite (talk) 07:48, 11 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I am still wondering if the page is necessary or if there needs to be a merge of the others. I think that is the first issue to tackle. --CNMall41 (talk) 09:33, 11 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Hi @CNMall41 – thanks for coming back on this. What are the parameters that would define whether it’s a merge of the page, or whether more information can be added to the new page? MichaelPWhite (talk) 11:32, 21 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Help with Chime article[edit]

Hi! I'm an employee of Chime. I posted an edit request on the article's Talk page. Would anyone here be interested in reviewing my proposed changes to clean up some single-sentence paragraphs? Thanks in advance! Chime rep DB (talk) 21:06, 1 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Asking for help with Fastly edit request[edit]

Hi there, I'm a Fastly employee wondering if anyone here would be available to field an active edit request on the company Talk page. My request contains a draft for a new Acquisitions section, which I think will improve the article by organizing all pertinent information about purchases the company has made over the last few years. The link to the request is here, if you want to take a look. Thank you in advance to any independent editors who help out with the review process! Jagger at Fastly (talk) 19:58, 9 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Responded on the talk page. I apologize as I see the original request was made there a month ago. --CNMall41 (talk) 04:03, 13 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Sam Yagan edit request[edit]

Hello to all,

I would like to alert editors on WikiProject Companies to an open edit request I have. The request is to update the article on OkCupid co-founder Sam Yagan at Talk:Sam_Yagan#Request_to_add_Corazon_Capital_subsection. This is to add a subsection on Yagan's company Corazon Capital. I made this request on behalf of Yagan through my work at Corazon Capital. Thank you for considering. CBCorazon (talk) 18:40, 17 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Partially implemented. See the talk page. --CNMall41 (talk) 21:00, 20 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Encyclopedic value of having ranking badge about companies[edit]

Like "the second best place to work in..." "the largest x in y sector based in z locality". As I was checking out sources for Hoffman Construction Company, I noticed one source says "the eighth largest general contractor in the Portland metro ranked by billings" (https://www.bizjournals.com/portland/news/2024/01/19/hoffman-construction-lake-oswego-downtown-portland.html) and another article from the same source says " the second-largest general contractor in the Portland metro." (https://www.bizjournals.com/portland/news/2019/04/10/breaking-the-silence-construction-workers-are-at.html). Both articles are likely correct given for the conditional parameters in place. Do such ranking have encyclopedic value and should it even be included in company articles? Graywalls (talk) 03:15, 20 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

@Graywalls:, I think some rankings do. However, we probably shouldn't go that far down the rabbit hole. For example, saying "eighth largest general contractor by billing in Portland" is something the company would want people to know, but would people reading Wikipedia really want to know that? For example, I used it on MCR Hotels to say it is the fourth largest hotel operator by room count in the U.S. as that is something on a much larger scale. I would NOT include something like "3rd largest operator of hotels with pools in Miami" (I made that up - no idea if they do). I think it would be a COMMONSENSE judgement but cannot see how being 8th in a metropolitan area for anything is encyclopedic. Just my 2 cents. --CNMall41 (talk) 21:08, 20 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
And actually I just changed it as this from a Forbes staff writer says 3rd largest. --CNMall41 (talk) 21:15, 20 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

USPS Deliveries section edit request[edit]

Hello everybody, I'm here to draw in feedback on an edit request I've made over on the USPS Talk page. For full transparency, I have a COI, which you can read a bit about on my Talk page.

I'm looking for feedback on an edit request for the article's Deliveries section, which would update some figures for mail delivery statistics that are outdated.

To any editors with questions, feel free to ping me, and I'll be standing by to respond. I see that the editor CNMall41 has been helpful recently in replying to requests, so I'll ping you here. Thank you so much for taking the time to read. Jonathan with U.S. Postal Service (talk) 13:32, 22 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Back on this thread to update that an editor has come by and implemented my request. However, I'm still seeking feedback on my Delivering for America subsection edit request. If any editors have the time to head over there and evaluate that request, that would be fantastic. I'll be around to respond if there are any questions. There's been much discussion on the request already, and I've implemented feedback from editors, so I believe the draft is in a great place but needs additional review at this time.

Amazon request on Global Strategy Group Talk page[edit]

Hello there! I'm Aaron, an employee at the political consulting and polling firm Global Strategy Group. I'm reaching out on behalf of the firm to ask editors at this WikiProject if they would be interested in reviewing an edit request we have placed to update GSG's article's Amazon subsection. The goal of the request (linked here) is to add relevant information about what GSG did following the incidents already described in the subsection. These additions are pretty modest and shouldn't take too much time for editors to review. If anyone here could help me out, I would really appreciate it.

Thanks, Aaron for GSG (talk) 15:54, 24 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Seeking feedback on Index Ventures History edit request[edit]

Hi! I'm an Index Ventures employee, and I posted an edit request to the article's Talk page to try and update the History section. If any editors have the time to check out this request, I'd appreciate it greatly. Kelsey at Index (talk) 15:46, 28 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Hi User:CNMall41. I see you've been active on this page. I was hoping you'd be interested in peeking at my edit request I linked to above on the Index Ventures Talk page. Thanks so much! Kelsey at Index (talk) 21:24, 3 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Sam Yagan request: Excelerate Labs and IAC information[edit]

Hello again,

Thank you to editors here for implementing the last request. I have another open edit request on the article about Sam Yagan at Talk:Sam_Yagan#Request_to_update_Excelerate_Labs_and_IAC_information. This is to add some information about some of Yagan's previous companies. I made this request on behalf of Yagan through my work at Corazon Capital. Thank you for considering.

Who the founders are of merged banks[edit]

Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase, UBS, Citigroup, NationsBank are examples of bank that have been formed by mergers. The founders in the infobox of them are the CEOs who happen to be in charge when the mergers occured. I would like to ask if this is acceptable to put it like this or would it be considered extrapolation on the level WP:OR. Right now I cannot really see the sources that explicitly call them "founders". Imcdc Contact 04:30, 1 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Independent editor review for Sysco History draft[edit]

Hey there! I'm a Sysco employee looking to make improvements to the company article. I currently have an edit request on the Sysco Talk page that invites editors to review a rewrite of the History section. In this draft, I try to better organize the section, substantiate claims with quality sources, and add new information about the company, particularly its first few decades of operation. One editor has already taken a look at the draft and revised it slightly, and they said I should reach out to other editors to get their feedback, so that we can form a solid consensus. The draft/request is linked here. Thank you in advance to anyone who takes the time to review! KM at Sysco (talk) 22:06, 20 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Chime edit request[edit]

Hi! I'm looking for editors to review another request of mine for the Chime (company) article. I'm an employee of the company so I don't make direct changes.
