CE[edit]

Hi, i am a CE student, and i read your post in the CE article, saying that a CE works under pressure, but my brain dont work well under pressure, do you think this is not the right job for me? And are you a CE? And being a CE is a lot of fun??? how is that? Daniel Leite 12:20, 16 June 2007 (UTC)

Every job has pressures. Because engineering is a field that is mainly used in the creation of new things, there is going to be a lot of deadlines to deliver those new things on time. Some employers will expect 80+ hours to meet their deadlines. Some will expect only 40. Some will give you two rocks to bang together and expect a super computer. others will have the proper equipment and supplies. Some will want you to do the work of three engineers. Others will hire what is needed to achieve the goal. If you fall into a position at a place that is "good", there will be a lot less stress. If you take a job at a place that has had fired several other engineers before you on the same project "that could not do the job", expect lots of stress. Stress in engineering jobs can be little or no stress up to bursting a vein. It all depends on the type of work, product, industry, and management style. The main thing to ask is, do you enjoy working on computers and being an engineer. If you enjoy what you do, then it comes down to finding the "right" employer or starting your own "right business." Doing what you enjoy, normally means you do it well and that in its self reduces stress. To find this "right" fit may mean you may have to be willing to tell the 80+ hour employer that you can not work under those terms or turning down customers in your business. I suggest you use your career councilor at your school or an employment center to find the right type of company/areas to work in or the bad ones to avoid. Now when you say you don't work well under pressure, you should also bring this up and see if it is as bad as you say or you may be as normal as everyone else. Am I a CE? I R a Komputter Ingineeer (joke). Is being a CE fun? Some times, especially when things work as expected and you get paid. Ultimately, you will find out that many times customers, coworkers, and management can make a job heaven or hell and the profession is not the problem. Well, it could also be a profession problem since their a lot of engineering jobs ending up in India and China or people being brought to the US creating a glut of indigenous engineers. Also you should post your question on the CE site so other can see it and my response.

Ratopolis[edit]

Nuvola apps important yellow.svg

Another editor has added the "{{prod}}" template to the article Ratopolis, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but the editor doesn't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and has explained why in the article (see also Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not and Wikipedia:Notability). Please either work to improve the article if the topic is worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia or discuss the relevant issues at its talk page. If you remove the {{prod}} template, the article will not be deleted, but note that it may still be sent to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

(from User talk:Jerry): Recently I created a page on a movie Ratopolis (1973) and it was deleted right after I corrected some of the the issues with the page without any further discussion. the reason given was CSD A7 Article about a person, group, company, or web content that does not indicate the importance of the subject. I believe that the summery of the movie indicated the importance of the subject. Could you look into this for me and let me know? Septagram (talk) 06:10, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

Hello, please see User:Septagram/Ratopolis. You can improve the article in this offline location and then move it to the article namespace, after the sourcing and notability issues are fully sorted out. You may choose to seek the input of another editor before putting it back up. Thanks, JERRY talk contribs 13:29, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

Sorry so late in saying welcome![edit]

I am really glad that you added the Article rescue squadron template to your user page. I don't know if anyone ever said welcome to the squadron, if not, WELCOME!

Please take a minute to sign your name to our list of 270+ members:

Good news, we are building our first newsletter and should sent out this weekend, keep an eye out for it!

And a warm welcome to the squadron!


Hi, Septagram, welcome to the Article Rescue Squadron! We are a growing community of Wikipedia editors dedicated to identifying and rescuing articles that have been tagged for deletion. Every day hundreds of articles are deleted, many rightfully so. But many concern notable subjects and are poorly written, ergo fixable and should not be deleted. We try to help these articles quickly improve and address the concerns of why they are proposed for deletion. This covers a lot of ground and your help is appreciated!

If you have any questions, feel free to ask on the talk page, and we will be happy to help you.

And once again - Welcome! Ikip (talk) 21:32, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

Suggestion for WikiProject United States to support WikiProject Colorado[edit]

It was recently suggested that WikiProject Colorado, to which you are a member, may be inactive or semi-active and it might be beneficial to include it in the list of projects supported by WikiProject United States. After reviewing the project it appears that there haven't been much active discussion on the talk page in some time and the only content updates appear to be simple maintenance so being supported by a larger project might be beneficial. I have begun a discussion on the projects talk page to see how the members of the project feel about this suggestion. Another user has added the project to the WPUS template and I added it to the list of supported projects in the WPUS main project page but before I take any further action I wanted to contact each of the active members for their input. --Kumioko (talk) 23:45, 7 August 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of "The eBay Effect"[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on "The eBay Effect" requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about something invented/coined/discovered by the article's creator or someone they know personally, and it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here.

"it is a hypothetical scenario, not just a scenario"[edit]

Just out of curiosity why did you undo my edit on Cybernetic revolt? Did my adjustment to the text make it less clear? I find it quite strange to read that such-and-such is "a scenario" without any qualification as to what kind of scenario it is. If you check the talk page of the article you'll see that at least one other commenter found it confusing as well. It would be nice to come to some agreement about how the wording would look best.
