Listing like german Xperia Site[edit]

Hey Guys. What do you think about listing all those Xperia Phones like it is listed in the german Wikipedia. I think it's friendly to read and find Informations about each phone. --Kovu007 (talk) 22:08, 6 October 2012 (UTC)

Tablets[edit]

Hi all, I was reading this article and the first sentence only mentions Xperia as being the name for Sony's smartphones. It is also the name of Sony's tablet range. I suggest changing the first sentence to: "Xperia is the family of Sony smartphones and tablets." Also, on the released devices section I suggest including: "Tablet Xperia Tablet S - The first Sony tablet to be included in Xperia family, released in August 2012" . Here's a reference: http://www.sony.co.uk/product/xperia-tablet-s/tab/overview Cheers, Zalunardo8 (talk) 15:43, 15 February 2013 (UTC)

Move page[edit]

I have moved the page from Xperia to Sony Xperia to mirror Samsung Galaxy where the company's name is in the title --Tyw7  (☎ Contact me! • Contributions) 19:57, 18 April 2013 (UTC)

First paragraph[edit]

Hi all. I don't believe the sentence "...currently accounts for more than half of the company's mobile phone sales." in the first paragraph to be accurate. Almost all phones currently being sold by Sony go under the Xperia brand, so it could not possibly account for just half of the sales. Anyone has a relevant source for this?

Are long tables a reason to add column headings at the bottom of a long table?

I added column headings to the bottom of the Smartphones table because this table is so long (has so many rows) so when I am in the middle of the table I don't know which column is which.

User:gu1dry undid it without any comment.

I asked User:gu1dry on his/her talk page why, re-added the bottom and added also a bottom to another long table.

This edit was undone again by User:gu1dry with the comment "There is no reason to add this". So the edit war started...

All my edits on his/her talk page were deleted by him/her, so he/she is not willing to discuss this issue with me. :-(

  • Any comments about column headings at the bottom of a long table?
  • When is it allowed to use the class="sortbottom"?

Since I have to play nice or you're just go cry about it again, I'll retort. A footer header is completely unnecessary (IMO). Additionally "long", in the situation, is a matter of opinion; I don't consider any of the tables in this article to be "long". But let's go to the pinnacle of lists on Wikipedia, Featured lists. Some examples from a variety of categories: Avatar: The Last Airbender (season 3), 2004 NBA draft (sortable table), David Bowie discography, Dickin Medal (sortable table), List of Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross with Oak Leaves recipients (1942) (sortable table), etc. I went through roughly 150 different featured lists & struggle to find any that have header footers, with many tables being much longer than any in this article. So from the information I have provided it is evident that common practice of quality tables would not include a header footer. gu1dry • ¢  06:56, 26 July 2013 (UTC)
So your argument is: A footer header is completely unnecessary because none of the 150 different featured lists I went through have header footers (In german there is a saying: "Eat shit because millions of flys can't be wrong").
  • When is a table long in your opinion?
  • Do you agree at least, a header footer makes orientation in a long table easier?
  • Last question to you: Why don't you talk before reverting?
--DrSeehas (talk) 07:29, 26 July 2013 (UTC)
No, footer headers are completely unnecessary is my own opinion prior to even looking through the featured lists. The point of bringing up the featured lists is demonstrate standard practices within the English Wikipedia. Now to answer your additional inquiries:
  1. Discussing when a table is "long" is no longer relevant to the discussion at had.
  2. I do not feel that header footers are ever necessary.
  3. Because I simply do not care to have to "answer" to others, especially when I'm the major contributor of the article. I much rather go about my business improving Wikipedia instead of arguing semantics, playing these political games & having to be huggy-feely with people. gu1dry • ¢  07:50, 26 July 2013 (UTC)
If you do not care to have to "answer" to others (i.e. not talking), then wikipedia is the wrong place for you.
Even if you are a major contributor of the article, you are not the owner of an article, i.e. other opinions/edits are allowed, especially when they enhance IMO an article. --DrSeehas (talk) 09:24, 26 July 2013 (UTC)
