Old discussion[edit]

Don't know if the box to the right should be included? Bawolff 23:08, 12 April 2006 (UTC)

It should not. The Wikinews article relates to Semapedia, not to Semacode. Symbologist 12:25, 17 May 2006 (UTC)


I do not think that "Semacode" is relevant enough to justify an independent entry. If the entry is or will be removed, the content (sparse at is, anyway) could be put under Object hyperlinking. This is at least the place where the general idea of so called "semacodes" belongs to. Symbologist 12:25, 17 May 2006 (UTC)

There are 120,000 hits on Google for "Semacode". It deserves its own article. If it is sparse, add a stub tag. ≈ jossi ≈ t@ 15:34, 17 May 2006 (UTC)

Self-reference in image[edit]

The example image should just say "Semacode" or something — It shouldn't be a reference to Wikipedia. ~ Booya Bazooka 21:43, 26 June 2006 (UTC)

Why not? It is just an example. ≈ jossi ≈ t@ 00:20, 27 June 2006 (UTC)

Error in Example[edit]

The example image does not point to the Wikipedia article on Semacode (ie, this article page) but on Semacod... which doesn't exist! Just scanned it now using Semacode's (the company's) iPhone app. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.5.77.42 (talk) 19:01, 11 January 2010 (UTC)

Wording[edit]

I just wanted to let everyone know that I changed "page" to "article" because I thought that there was a page on the semacode Website about Wikipedia, after which I realized it was just referring to the page I was on [it was inverse to what I originally thought.]

Comparisons[edit]

We could do with a comparison of Semacode, QR Code and any other alternatives. Could someone oblige, please? Andy Mabbett 11:54, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

Limit, charset[edit]

This document should contain information such as the maximum encodable URL; what sort of URLs are allowed (http? ftp? https? mailto? any?); and if the encoded characters are ASCII, UTF-8, or another character set. —AlanH (talk) 23:09, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

Datamatrix[edit]

It appears that Datamatrix and Semacode are the same thing (Semacode being one of Datamatrix uses). Shouldn't these two articles be merged? Or at least the distinction clarified? Epaulard (talk) 12:33, 9 October 2009 (UTC)

That's like saying that "e-mail and Hotmail are the same thing". Data Matrix is the name of a barcode format; Semacode is the name of a company and a bit of software. There's nothing novel about what they do; everything in "The Science behind Semacode" is already done with QR codes. I don't think anything here belongs in Data Matrix, though it might go in object hyperlinking (which unfortunately links to this article). ⇌Elektron 16:27, 23 December 2009 (UTC)

Semacode is a trade name for Data Matrix "Semacode Blog" MiraiWarren (talk) 16:48, 10 January 2010 (UTC)

Independent sources needed[edit]

I've just tagged this article as being in need of independent sources, as all currently in the article are pages on the company's website. A quick scan of Google Books suggests to me that sources should be available to fix this, however I am not at al awake enough to do so now (I'm on UTC). Thryduulf (talk) 03:39, 13 November 2014 (UTC)
