WikiProject Germany Invitation[edit]

Coat of arms of Germany.svg

Hello, Conquerist! I'd like to call your attention to the WikiProject Germany and the German-speaking Wikipedians' notice board. I hope their links, sub-projects and discussions are interesting and even helpful to you. If not, I hope that new ones will be.

Invitation to Wikipedia research by City University HK[edit]

Dear Conquerist,

I am Andreas Schroeder, a Research Fellow at City University in Hong Kong. Here at the University’s Center for Applied Knowledge and Innovation Management, we are currently conducting a research project on collaboration activities in Wikipedia. We are inviting experienced Wikipedians worldwide to share their experiences and views on different aspect of the community processes with us. Our aim is to find out how people integrate their contribution efforts to ultimately better understand the mechanisms behind the amazing success of Wikipedia.

Because you are an experienced Wikipedian and a well integrated member of the Wikipedia community, we would like to talk to you about your experiences. We would like to do a short interview during the next two weeks either via Skype, MSN Messenger or telephone at a time that is most convenient for you. The interview should not take longer than 30 minutes and could be conducted in German or English.

We would very much appreciate your participation in this research project. Any information about participants will, of course, be kept strictly confidential. For further questions about the project and to arrange a date for an interview, please contact Andreas Schroeder at WikiResearchCityU{at}gmail.com or send me an email.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Kind regards,
Andreas Schroeder, PhD

Wikipedia:Wikipedia Loves Art[edit]

First off, I apologize for the spam. You are receiving this message because you have indicated that you are in Southern California or interested in Southern California topics (either via category or WikiProject).

I would like to invite you to the Los Angeles edition of Wikipedia:Wikipedia Loves Art, a photography scavenger hunt to be held at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) on Saturday, February 28, 2009, from 1:00 to 7:00 PM. All photos are intended for use in Wikipedia articles or on Wikimedia Commons. There will be a prize available for the person who gets the most photos on the list.

If you don't like art, why not come just to meet your fellow Wikipedians. Apparently, we haven't had a meetup in this area since June 2006!

If you are interested in attending, please add your name to Wikipedia:Wikipedia Loves Art#Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Please make a note if you are traveling to the area (train or plane) and need transportation, which can probably be arranged via carpool, but we need time to coordinate. Lodging is as of right now out of scope, but we could discuss that if enough people are interested.

Thank you and I hope to see you there! howcheng {chat} 23:41, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

May 2014 disambig contest: let's do it again![edit]

Greetings fellow disambiguator! Remember back in February when we made history by clearing the board for the first time ever, for the monthly disambiguation contest? Let's do it again in May! I personally will be aiming to lead the board next month, but for anyone who thinks they can put in a better effort, I will give a $10 Amazon gift card to any editor who scores more disambiguation points in May. Also, I will be setting up a one-day contest later in the month, and will try to set up more prizes and other ways to make this a fun and productive month. Cheers! bd2412 T 18:47, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

802.11ac[edit]

You recently added a note to 802.11ac stating "600 Mbit/s is only possible with proprietary extensions to 802.11n that enable 256QAM in the 2.4 GHz band." This does not appear to be consistent with 802.11n which appears to indicate 600Mbps is achievable with 64-QAM using four spatial streams. --Pascal666 16:25, 8 September 2014 (UTC)

What you're saying is correct. I had forgotten that 802.11n allows up to four spatial streams. All commercial "AC1900" and "AC2350" devices that I am aware of use a 3-stream 802.11ac chipset (e.g. BCM4360) for the 2.4 GHz band, but who knows what the future will bring, especially now that products based on 4-stream 802.11ac chipsets are starting to become available. I'll revise the note. Thanks for bringing it up! Conquerist (talk) 16:42, 8 September 2014 (UTC)
