Revision as of 23:54, 22 September 2010

Let me know if there is anything else you want me to do with the Fabulous.com article, ok? Should I add a "people" section? I think you took that section out of the MarkMonitior article.

Also worked on the eNom article. made it more neutral (I see what you mean!) and deleted some of the more superfluous sentences. Changed the placement of the logo too, but left everything else. Wasn't sure if I should take anything else out.

Not sure if you saw my post from earlier, still getting used to this "talk" feature. Please see below:

Templates

What would you like included in company articles? I looked at some big companies over at Wikipedia (ebay, yahoo, aol), and I see what you mean by "references", but are you going to want to keep the member photo galleries? It seems like they (Wikipedia) only include linked names and titles. Let me know what you think about that. Personally, I think it would look a little more professional just writing them out and it is hard finding pictures for everyone sometimes.

Since I pulled most of my information from the company websites themselves, I might have to go back through mine again and check the NPOV. Are there any other ones you want me to look through specifically? Does the eNom article sound ok, or do I need to push it a little farther?

I did try and play around with the info box when I was working on the MarkMonitor article, but I don't know if it works quite right here. I'll try again though. It's nice that I can look at Wikipedia's source, and pull code from that.

Sorry for the paragraphs! Hope you can help. : P


Info Box

When I was talking about MarkMonitor and the info box, I meant that I tried on that article and the code from wikipedia doesn't always quite work here, they have templates set up. You'll have to look at it through the "edit" feature, but this is the code for an infobox (taken from Yahoo! article):
