Assistance Required

Hello,

You marked confusing to my page, I need help in knowing what portion of the article you think is confusing so I can edit it.

I will be really grateful to you.

Sincerely,Mshabaz (talk) 09:56, 21 September 2012 (UTC)

Firstly, just a very minor thing, it isn't your page. See WP:OWN.
Okay, what are the issues? I hope you don't mind if I rather frankly rip it to shreds. Let's start with the lead, which contains lots of buzzwords and bullshit:
a dynamic multitude of browser-based JAVA Voice over Internet Protocol VoIP solutions for the computing cloud
What makes it a "dynamic multitude" rather than just a 'range'?
JAVA? I believe you mean 'Java'.
How do you provide "solutions for the computing cloud"? You can probably omit "for the computing cloud": yes, technically, Voice over IP is in "the cloud", but that's such a vague bullshit word that it confuses people.
One of the pioneers in Internet protocol providers’ industry
Pioneers? Citation needed.
I'm not sure what the rest of this even means. They are a pioneer in the industry of Internet Protocol providers? Sorry, what does this even mean?
A person-to-person VoIP service provider based in Germany, C2Call GmbH offer users a simple, affordable and effective alternative to existing VoIP communication tool
Person-to-person, as opposed to what? Person-to-robot? What "existing VoIP communication tool" is it a "simple, affordable and effective alternative" to exactly?
In the operation section:
C2Call works on the principles of Java by temporarily loading a Java widget...
How does something "[work] on the principles of Java"? Java is a programming language not a philosophical theory. What this is actually trying to say is that it's a Java applet. That's far more ho-hum than talking about principles.
...into Internet browsers such as Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Safari, Chrome and other browsers that support Javascript.
Java or JavaScript? They aren't the same thing.
What you are saying here is that it works in any browser that supports either Java or JavaScript (I'm not sure). You don't need to list all the major browsers.
The widget adds VoIP functions to the browser.
To the browser or to the web page? They aren't the same thing.
lets the user experience next generation VoIP technology with Group Video Calling
"next-generation" is the sort of word marketers use, not encyclopedias.
In addition, this section seems to be about the operation of the software, FriendCaller, not the operation of the company. It goes from discussing Android and iPhone apps to then discussing the company's financial status:
C2Call is a venture-backed company that has generated more than $2 million in revenue since April 2010.
Then it goes back to discussing the product:
After perfecting FriendCaller’s VoIP platform, C2Call GmbH applied a great deal of time and resources toward constructing ensured network compatibility with a wide array of standard and mobile computing devices.
Perfecting? Says who. That's very much a peacock word, used to puff the subject up rather than describe neutrally.
Individuals who own Apple Inc products such as the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch can enjoy the same connective perks built into FriendCaller’s browser-based version, as well as the service’s VoIP downloadable version from Appstore and Google Play.
Translation from corporate speak: there are apps for iOS and Android available in the respective app marketplaces.
Let's carry on:
For those who place the bulk of their phone calls from home or work computers, C2Call GmbH’s WebPhone version complies with all browser-powered VoIP protocol.
Presumably if I don't place the bulk of my phone calls from my home or work computer, the WebPhone doesn't' comply with all the protocols (plural).
C2Call GmbH’s FriendCaller for Android operating systems and iOS Operating System allow users to experience the power of Mobile Group Video Calling.
The "power"? That's marketing speak.
Draper Investment Company proudly supports Germany-based startup C2Call GmbH
"Proudly"? I'm thinking that we're not talking the same sort of pride that one has marching down the street in a gay pride parade or watching one's kids do well at sports. More like the "awesome, money!" type pride. Nothing wrong with that, but it's kind of the wrong word.
I'm sure there are more issues. It currently reads like a bad, buzzword-laden advert. —Tom Morris (talk) 10:52, 21 September 2012 (UTC)

Thank you Tom Morris for highlighting the mistakes. I have worked on the Page again and made sure there are no such buzzwords mentioned and corrected the previous texts too.

Thank you

Mshabaz (talk) 09:59, 10 October 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for fixing the issues I raised. They were just a sampling of some of the many issues I can find. —Tom Morris (talk) 19:20, 14 October 2012 (UTC)

GenesBrainsBehaviorNeuroscienceKL

Hi Tom, I was wondering if you could help me classify my wiki article on worker policing. I saw that you were doing some tagging earlier. How does one decide the importance or quality of the article? — Preceding unsigned comment added by GenesBrainsBehaviorNeuroscienceKL (talkcontribs)

That looks pretty good to me. My WikiProject tagging of articles is based on automation and sheer force of will rather than any particular expertise. —Tom Morris (talk) 19:17, 14 October 2012 (UTC)

Wrong category

Hi! I saw that here you have a category with a name mispelled. See Category:Anahuac Univeristies (universities?). How can it be fix? Thanks in advance, --RoyFocker (talk) 13:17, 15 October 2012 (UTC)

How is it misspelled? What needs to be done? Usually the process is to put it up for discussion at categories for discussion. I'm happy to do that if there's a reason to do so. —Tom Morris (talk) 13:19, 15 October 2012 (UTC)
It says univeristies instead of universities. Maybe we can change that without have to discuss it. Thanks again! --RoyFocker (talk) 13:27, 15 October 2012 (UTC)
Ah, okay, just looked at WP:CFD (despite being an admin, it's not something I do much of). It's recommended that one list it up there, and usually it gets closed in 48 hours. I'll do that in just a second. —Tom Morris (talk) 13:34, 15 October 2012 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done See Wikipedia:Categories for discussion/Log/2012 October 15#Category:Anahuac_Univeristies. —Tom Morris (talk) 13:36, 15 October 2012 (UTC)

Question

Hey Tom! Does that script that we added that allows me to determine edit count and gender of editors work on Commons, too? Thanks! SarahStierch (talk) 17:45, 16 October 2012 (UTC)

I tried it on Commons (I'll talk about how in a second). It shows gender markers (it showed me male on mine and female on yours, didn't test anything beyond that) but it doesn't show edit count or other user info.
It needs a bit of fiddling before it'll work on Commons. Just need to find a JavaScript nerd (i.e. not me) to do that and set it up locally on Commons.
Gender markers are more useful than nothing at all. Here's how I did it: diff.
Ideally, a Commons specific version could be hosted on Commons (or, you know, the Foundation could have a centralised repository for gadgets).
Hope that helps. —Tom Morris (talk) 18:22, 16 October 2012 (UTC)
Fab, I just really want it for the gender markers. Yeah, re: gadget repository. But, not my expertise :) Thanks, pal. SarahStierch (talk) 18:35, 16 October 2012 (UTC)

Page Curation newsletter - closing up!

Hey all :).

We're (very shortly) closing down this development cycle for Page Curation. It's genuinely been a pleasure to talk with you all and build software that is so close to my own heart, and also so effective. The current backlog is 9 days, and I've never seen it that low before.

However! Closing up shop does not mean not making any improvements. First-off, this is your last chance to give us a poke about unresolved bugs or report new ones on the talkpage. If something's going wrong, we want to know about it :). Second, we'll hopefully be taking another pass over the software next year. If you've got ideas for features Page Curation doesn't currently have, stick them here.

Again, it's been an honour. Thanks :). Okeyes (WMF) (talk) 12:01, 17 October 2012 (UTC)

Deletion review

Hi Tom. I take no position on this issue myself, but an industry source, not too close to the subject, emailed me a long list of possible references that might establish notability for Jeremy Schoemaker, an article you deleted. Please view the list at Talk:Jeremy Schoemaker. If that info had been put forth at the AfD, the result might have been different. Would you undelete the article and relist it for a more thorough discussion based upon this new information? The original discussion was pretty thin. Thank you so much. Jehochman Talk 12:56, 24 October 2012 (UTC)

That seems eminently reasonable. I'll undelete the article. —Tom Morris (talk) 12:58, 24 October 2012 (UTC)

Hi, Tom

Could you please take a look at this AfD? The nominator all but admitted it was a bad-faith AfD, which poisoned the AfD from the start. There are over 20 citations in the article and 15 new ones in the AfD discussion, so WP:GNG doesn't seem to be in question. Only WP:SPA seem to be voting, and other admins don't seem anxious to get involved. Thank you. - 91.105.232.26 (talk) 07:18, 29 October 2012 (UTC)

This is not a newsletter

This is just a tribute.

Anyway. You're getting this note because you've participated in discussion and/or asked for updates to either the Article Feedback Tool or Page Curation. This isn't about either of those things, I'm afraid ;p. We've recently started working on yet another project: Echo, a notifications system to augment the watchlist. There's not much information at the moment, because we're still working out the scope and the concepts, but if you're interested in further updates you can sign up here.

In addition, we'll be holding an office hours session at 21:00 UTC on Wednesday, 14 November in #wikimedia-office - hope to see you all there :). I appreciate it's an annoying time for non-Europeans: if you're interested in chatting about the project but can't make it, give me a shout and I can set up another session if there's enough interest in one particular timezone or a skype call if there isn't.

Disambiguation link notification for December 4

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Society for Old Age Rational Suicide, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Dignitas (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
