Correct confusion of identity in Bill Adderley page[edit]

The Wikipedia page about Bill Adderley (the founder of Dunelm Group unfortunately confuses him with his son, William Lester Adderley (Sir Will Adderley), and I'm looking for help to fix this issue as it is causing more confusion online.

As an employee of WA Capital Group, Sir Will Adderley's investment company, I have requested some edits to the Bill Adderley page on behalf of Sir Will. The specific edits include correcting the name at the start of the page, removing the "Sir" from above the infobox, and adding sources and clarifying the information about Sir Will on the page. I've provided links and references in my request on the Talk page.

Can anyone help with this? Thank you. Alex at WA Capital Group (talk) 11:05, 15 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Proposed deletion of Teako170[edit]

Notice

The article Teako170 has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Only one source here (the last) is both (a) reliable and (b) not a product of the subject themselves. Fails WP:V, WP:N, and WP:NOR, at a minimum—and has for 15.24 years since the subject themselves wrote the article.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. — Fourthords | =Λ= | 15:48, 23 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Page review for Juan José Arreola[edit]

Hello, lately I've been working on Juan José Arreola (I have added an inbox, some pictures, a works section, an awards and honors section, a further reading section, a reference/source, etc) but of course there's still work to be done given that the page has many shortcomings (lack of sources, peacocky, etc). So I was wondering if you could take a look at it and give me some advice as to which direction I should take to improve on its present state. It was in an even worse state when I started working on it but there's still lots of work to be done. My goal is to take it beyond a 'Start' class article. Your advice and constructive commentary will be appreciated. Thanks. DemianStratford (talk) 19:43, 23 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Douglas Leone requests[edit]

Hello there, WikiProject members. I recently posted two requests to the Douglas Leone article Talk page concerning proposed revisions. The first request involves a very straightforward update to the infobox. The second request involves changes to the article introduction (updating his title), Career section (lightly restructuring and updating existing claims), and Personal life section (adding one new claim). Due to my conflict of interest (I work for Sequoia Capital) I will not make any changes to the article myself. As such, I'm hoping experienced editors can look at what I've proposed and make those updates if they deem them to be improvements. If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know.

David Copperfield Article Help[edit]

Hi there. In February I proposed some updates to the David Copperfield article here. But the Request Edits Queue seems to be stalled right now, so I was wondering if an editor here might be interested in reviewing my proposals? (I can’t do it myself because of a COI.) Thanks very much. MagicTech1902 (talk) 17:06, 1 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Stephanie Cutter edit requests[edit]

Hi editors, Christian here again hoping to drum up some interest in the Stephanie Cutter article. I have a couple outstanding requests on the article Talk page that I think help organize the article a bit better and clean up some redundancy. I'd love it if someone here could help me out! I won't make any edits myself due to my conflict of interest. Thanks in advance for your consideration! PrecisionChristian (talk) 20:46, 1 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Names of non-notable children in bio articles[edit]

Hello all- Looking for guidance re identifying subjects' children in biography articles. My take from reading WP:BIOFAMILY and WP:BLPNAME is that we are meant to err on the side of respecting people's privacy, though the guidance does not specifically state that we should avoid including non-notable children's names. Would anyone know of any other pertinent guidance? Eric talk 11:40, 6 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
