Speedy deletion of Imagen Inc[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Imagen Inc requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a company or corporation, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for companies and corporations.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the article does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that a copy be emailed to you.

Xylogics[edit]

No, I'm sorry I didn't. There's a substantial backlog at CAT:CSD. I got to the article, as it was linking to CSD through the hang-on tags. I checked the history and noted there was no accompanying (prior) request for deletion. This makes the hang-on tag invalid as no editor has requested deletion. I therefore removed the tags in order to remove it from the queue at CSD. I'm afraid this wasn't about article clean up but managing the job load at another part of Wikipedia. Again, sorry, but I hope that explains my actions. Pedro :  Chat  10:02, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

Splitting historic Universal Audio/UREI from new Universal Audio/Kind Of Loud Technologies[edit]

I like what you've been doing in adding a lot of great pro audio material to Wikipedia. That said, I wonder what was the intention in splitting Bill Putnam's old UA/UREI from the new company formed by Putnam's sons? Certainly, the new company is different than the old in terms of industry position as a boutique operation rather than as a major player. It's also true there was a large time gap between the two entities where neither was in business. However, the new guys are claiming to be descended from the old company and they are manufacturing (among other things) reproductions of the most famous historic products. That last reason is why I presented both entities on the same page. Binksternet (talk) 00:03, 7 May 2008 (UTC)

I split them out because the original page put a lot of emphasis on the new company which in my opinion is a little start-up and not legend that the original company was. In the late 70/early 80s you could walk into any professional recording studio and you would see many UREI products, speakers, compressors, EQs, etc. If you looked at a medium to large sound reinforcement company you would be likely to see UREI compressors and EQs.
The new company is as you say, a boutique operation. They are recycling old designs and while they offer new products it is unlikely that they will offer any ground breaking products like the LA-3, LA-4 compressors, 813 monitors, or the 537, 539 graphic EQs. The professional market is different these days.
So I think the two pages are about very different companies. The original company with a historic significance and the new company which is an on-going business. I would also like to split out the Chicago and west coast recording studios since I think that they are separate with their own histories. But that is for another day.
Robert.harker (talk) 00:21, 7 May 2008 (UTC)
Fair enough. It was a jolt to see the page split without discussion. I'll take another look and see if there are further tweaks to be made along the lines you've established. One possibility that comes to mind is to make Universal Audio into a disambiguation page which directs the reader to Universal Audio (album), Universal Audio (company) and Universal Audio (defunct company) or UREI or some such. That, or give the new guys the straight-up Universal Audio link while making the old company be UREI. There are a bunch of options.
I don't want to lose the high-level view where a single article gives the reader an idea of all the wild stuff Bill Putnam was up to. I guess that means copying some material from these various articles and inserting it at the Bill Putnam page. Or at least linking properly. Binksternet (talk) 00:52, 7 May 2008 (UTC)

I looked at creating a disambiguation page but could not find good examples of the wiki syntax to use. Yes it is the right thing to do. A top level Universal Audio page would be nice, but keep it short and sweet. A paragraph for each phase with links to that phase.

MCI[edit]

When I saw Music Center Incorporated on my watch list I did not recognize the name. Most people know the company as simply MCI. I think it would make sense to change the page name from [Music Center Incorporated] to [MCI (audio)] or [MCI (audio manufacturer)]. It is sort of like calling water di-hydrogen oxide rather than h2o. Both are correct, one is much more recognizable

Hi, If you want to change the name of the article leave a redirection page and move the article it to your referred name. Do you know how to do this Chrisfromcanberra (talk)

No, I do not know how to do this. Can you point me to an article telling me how? Robert.Harker (talk) 19:15, 19 July 2010 (UTC)

Good work on audio[edit]

Export hell seidel steiner.png

Thanks for your recent work on audio topics. Some day I should buy you a beer! Binksternet (talk) 01:06, 15 November 2012 (UTC)

Assessment guidelines[edit]

I appreciate your edits I did not find any that did not improve. I've touched up a few of your recent WP:PSP assessments. Here are some simple guidelines that I try to follow in doing assessments. -—Kvng 16:20, 20 November 2012 (UTC)

  • Quality assessment should be the same for all projects
  • Articles marked as stubs should be rated as a stub. Articles not marked as stubs should not be rated as stubs.
  • Most articles do not improve quickly so be careful when changing quality rating by more than one grade
  • Wikipedia:WikiProject Professional sound production/Assessment

I looked at your changes and understand almost all of them. The one I am not sure of is: Bandwidth (signal processing). It seems to be a comprehensive well written article with references. It does seem to be missing some sections like an audio bandwith section. It also only has two references. Are either of these why you downgraded it from C to Start? Same comments about Wave field synthesis. Robert.Harker(talk) 19:53, 20 November 2012 (UTC)

Both of those are borderline, I have no objection to promoting them. Your edits gave a different rating for different projects. Please promote for all projects. -—Kvng 06:00, 24 November 2012 (UTC)

National Association of Broadcasters[edit]

I don't believe your encyclopedia.com citation is a valid or useful one. Contemporary sources (e.g., Broadcasting and Broadcast Advertising magazine) clearly indicate that it was known as the "NAB" well before World War II. 121a0012 (talk) 17:55, 21 November 2012 (UTC)

Citation please. Your reference to Broadcasting and Broadcast Advertising only says that Harry Shaw was a former National Association of Broadcasters president. Not that the organization was known as National Association of Broadcasters prior to its name change in 1958. See my reference for the year: National Association of Broadcasters Robert.Harker (talk) 18:07, 21 November 2012 (UTC)

Editing article talk pages to remove comments you don't want to see[edit]

That's a big no-no, poopie boy. You can discuss it, you can ignore it - but you don't get to delete others' comments on talk pages. Hands off, whoever you think you are. 88.68.172.133 (talk) 17:56, 13 September 2014 (UTC)

I did not delete your comment. I undid the change because it was an inappropriate comment left by an anonymous coward which makes it vandalism. I am tempted to undo your anonymous comments again but if you want to make an ass of yourself, be my guest. But next time have the guts to attach your name to it.
