Company of the week[edit]

Was just seeing this portal and noticed that Wal-Mart has been "Company of the week" since August. It is now February, and probably about time Portal:Companies/Selected article got changed or something. Tuxide (talk) of WikiProject Retailing 09:50, 12 February 2008 (UTC)

I don't think Company of the week is sustainable. Perhaps, "Selected article" would be a more useful title for the box. --Hroðulf (or Hrothulf) (Talk) 11:58, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

Related portal request[edit]

Could someone who knows how to do these things tastefully please add Portal:Cooperatives to Portal:Companies/Related portals (which is displayed at the bottom of the portal.) --Hroðulf (or Hrothulf) (Talk) 11:58, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

Thank you! --Hroðulf (or Hrothulf) (Talk) 16:41, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

Revamp of portal?[edit]

I've been testing out some ideas for revamping the portal to bring it more in line with the other portals (in terms of both look and content) on Wikipedia. Using the basic portal templates and layouts used on Portal:Africa and Portal:Energy, I've mocked an example up in my sandbox. Does anyone have any thoughts/suggestions/criticisms about either the style or what should and shouldn't be included? Gr1st (talk) 14:14, 17 June 2008 (UTC)

Adding a new company[edit]

I would like Samsung C&T Corporation to be added on your list. The company is listed on only one stock market: Korea Exchange; however, it has a profile uploaded on Hoover's. I hope this meets your criteria for putting up a new company on the list and more people will be able to join the page for Samsung C&T and improve the article.Kymagnus (talk) 19:57, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

My name is Stuart Gordon, and I am the Production and Communications Manager for Life Healthcare Communications The Hernes Oak North Street Winkfield Windsor SL4 4SY UK

I would like to create a page for my company because there is a company with almost the same name already on Wikipedia and there might be confusion.

Life Healthcare Communications is the second largest independent healthcare agency in the UK.

The page for the other Life Healthcare is here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LIFE_Healthcare_Group — Preceding unsigned comment added by Stuartgordon70 (talkcontribs) 15:11, 12 November 2012 (UTC)

@Stuartgordon70: I can work on it. Did some initial digging and found less resource material. That might be due to only cursory look. Do connect with me via email / talk page should you be interested. Devopam (talk) 05:29, 21 December 2015 (UTC)

Adding logos[edit]

There should be a task box for companies and organizations that don't have logos. I've been doing a lot lately! ThaiTee (talk) 04:01, 14 January 2018 (UTC)

          The article on Teleprompter Cable Television states the company "tried to bribe Johnstown City Council" in the early 1970s. I thought it was 1969 or 1970. Actually, I recall that Johnstown mayor, GOP Kenneth O. Tompkins (check spelling of last name), was bribed approximately  $14,000 to keep rival Warner Cable out of the area for a considerable period of time. He was caught, convicted, served time and, I think, died not many years later. It was a big deal here, made national headlines, and was reputedly the first --or first MAJ OR  — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:27, 17 March 2018 (UTC)
