Text of the Proposal[edit]

WikiProject Industrial design is a Wikipedian community that aims to better organize information in articles related to Industrial design (also called Product design). Right now, this topic is not well covered, being squeezed in between its Visual Arts and its Technology roots.

  • If I'm cor-rec-to, there are about 1850 articles on Industrial design in Wikipedia...
  • At least, it's more than for Typography, and there IS a Typography WikiProject...
  • And it's more than the Fashion WikiProject with 482 articles...
  • There is also an Urban studies and planning project and a Video games portal so...
  • Now you can also see a proposal for the Design Portal. (that portal would be for Industrial design AND Graphic design/Interior design) --  Alain  R 3 4 5

WP 1.0 bot announcement[edit]

This message is being sent to each WikiProject that participates in the WP 1.0 assessment system. On Saturday, January 23, 2010, the WP 1.0 bot will be upgraded. Your project does not need to take any action, but the appearance of your project's summary table will change. The upgrade will make many new, optional features available to all WikiProjects. Additional information is available at the WP 1.0 project homepage. — Carl (CBM · talk) 03:27, 22 January 2010 (UTC)

Pageview stats[edit]

After a recent request, I added WikiProject Industrial design to the list of projects to compile monthly pageview stats for. The data is the same used by http://stats.grok.se/en/ but the program is different, and includes the aggregate views from all redirects to each page. The stats are at Wikipedia:WikiProject Industrial design/Popular pages bot.

The page will be updated monthly with new data. The edits aren't marked as bot edits, so they will show up in watchlists. You can view more results, request a new project be added to the list, or request a configuration change for this project using the toolserver tool. If you have any comments or suggestions, please let me know. Thanks! Mr.Z-man 01:42, 1 March 2010 (UTC)

Xenobot Mk V to tag and/or auto-assess unassessed articles[edit]

A request has been made at User:Xenobot/R#WP:DESIGN to tag & auto-assess articles in the scope of the project and/or auto-assess the project's unassessed articles.

Xenobot Mk V (talk · contribs) looks for a {{stub}} template on the article, or inherits the class from other projects (see here for further details).

If there are any questions or objections regarding this process, please make them known. The task will commence after 72 hours if there are none.

Unreferenced living people articles bot[edit]

User:DASHBot/Wikiprojects provides a list, updated daily, of unreferenced living people articles (BLPs) related to your project. There has been a lot of discussion recently about deleting these unreferenced articles, so it is important that these articles are referenced.

The unreferenced articles related to your project can be found at >>>Wikipedia:WikiProject Industrial design/Unreferenced BLPs<<<

If you do not want this wikiproject to participate, please add your project name to this list.

Thank you.

Update: Wikipedia:WikiProject Industrial design/Unreferenced BLPs has been created. This list, which is updated by User:DASHBot/Wikiprojects daily, will allow your wikiproject to quickly identify unreferenced living person articles.
There maybe no or few articles on this new Unreferenced BLPs page. To increase the overall number of articles in your project with another bot, you can sign up for User:Xenobot_Mk_V#Instructions.
If you have any questions or concerns, visit User talk:DASHBot/Wikiprojects. Okip 00:45, 28 March 2010 (UTC)

FAR[edit]

I have nominated Macintosh for a featured article review here. Please join the discussion on whether this article meets featured article criteria. Articles are typically reviewed for two weeks. If substantial concerns are not addressed during the review period, the article will be moved to the Featured Article Removal Candidates list for a further period, where editors may declare "Keep" or "Remove" the article's featured status. The instructions for the review process are here. Ten Pound Hammer, his otters and a clue-bat • (Many ottersOne batOne hammer) 22:27, 10 April 2010 (UTC)

Decorative arts[edit]

An enthusiast is adding early modern pre-industrial designer cabinet-makers like Jean Pelletier to this project. I'm sure none of you are interested in Thomas Chippendale et al. as "industrial designers" eh. Some thought as to parameters of this "project" might be in order. Or not...--Wetman (talk) 22:30, 16 April 2010 (UTC)

Ya, this one is a good debate I think, and I may be the one 'enthusiast' at some point. Although I could not see an ID stamp in the 2 examples you gave, don't hesitate to point any specific article here and we'll evaluate them individually. There is (or not) that fine line in Wikipedia between Furniture designer and Cabinetmaker. For me, and I'm not a specialist, I have the feeling that some of these pre-industrial characters may be more industrial than conventional wisdom would tell, especially for the 19th century guys. For instance, as their business and fame grew, they may have employed hundred of carpenters in a kind of production chain, and if these proto-factory workers used gear-operated, steam-powered machinery, aren't we looking at the frontier of ID? It's like the V2 for Space: is it a bomb, is is a plane, is it a rocket? We would welcome anybody's thoughts on this idea. --AlainR345Techno-Wiki-Geek 16:29, 5 May 2010 (UTC)
Note: now I see what you mean by Jean Pelletier (cabinetmaker), not the other guy... I also 'retired' Thomas Shearer cause he's a little too old for that... --AlainR345Techno-Wiki-Geek 16:39, 5 May 2010 (UTC)

Industrial design articles have been selected for the Wikipedia 0.8 release[edit]

Version 0.8 is a collection of Wikipedia articles selected by the Wikipedia 1.0 team for offline release on USB key, DVD and mobile phone. Articles were selected based on their assessed importance and quality, then article versions (revisionIDs) were chosen for trustworthiness (freedom from vandalism) using an adaptation of the WikiTrust algorithm.

We would like to ask you to review the Industrial design articles and revisionIDs we have chosen. Selected articles are marked with a diamond symbol (♦) to the right of each article, and this symbol links to the selected version of each article. If you believe we have included or excluded articles inappropriately, please contact us at Wikipedia talk:Version 0.8 with the details. You may wish to look at your WikiProject's articles with cleanup tags and try to improve any that need work; if you do, please give us the new revisionID at Wikipedia talk:Version 0.8. We would like to complete this consultation period by midnight UTC on Monday, October 11th.

We have greatly streamlined the process since the Version 0.7 release, so we aim to have the collection ready for distribution by the end of October, 2010. As a result, we are planning to distribute the collection much more widely, while continuing to work with groups such as One Laptop per Child and Wikipedia for Schools to extend the reach of Wikipedia worldwide. Please help us, with your WikiProject's feedback!

WikiProject cleanup listing[edit]

I have created together with Smallman12q a toolserver tool that shows a weekly-updated list of cleanup categories for WikiProjects, that can be used as a replacement for WolterBot and this WikiProject is among those that are already included (because it is a member of Category:WolterBot cleanup listing subscriptions). See the tool's wiki page, this project's listing in one big table or by categories and the index of WikiProjects. Svick (talk) 20:30, 7 November 2010 (UTC)

Form follows function[edit]

I was just reading over this article. From what I see there's a lot of OR. I was thinking about rewriting it (and might yet) but while I'm certain my writing would be more accurate, I'm not yet prepared to provide references, etc. So I thought someone here might be interested in rewriting it.

Also, I noticed it was assigned low importance by a bot. As it is the central principle behind Modern architecture, I think at least a medium importance is warranted.

worship of capital letters[edit]

Probably a lot more cleanup of this kind can be done. That sort of thing obviously violates WP:MOS. 174.53.163.119 (talk) 15:37, 11 June 2011 (UTC)

A few items for clarification[edit]

I have just attempted to join this wikiproject and am encountering a number of difficulties. First of all, although I have added the project box to my user page, I cannnot find my name on the participants' list. Secondly, I cannot find wikiproject user boxes on the user pages of some of those listed as members of the project. Thirdly, I cannot find the article Danish modern in the list of articles covered by the project even though it is listed as being in the wikiproject on the article's talk page. Thirdly, I would like to add a number of new articles for expansion and/or assessment but cannot find a place to do so. Maybe all this is due to the fact that I cannot understand the mechanics of the site but I would appreciate a response anyway. - Ipigott (talk) 13:56, 2 November 2011 (UTC)

Infobox furniture[edit]

{{Infobox furniture}} may be of some use. I've added it to Wikipedia:WikiProject Industrial design/Box templates. Improvements most welcome! -- Trevj (talk) 10:53, 20 June 2012 (UTC)

Injection molding reassessment[edit]

I've just made a lot of important changes to Injection molding. I've added references, addressed maintenance templates and then removed them, and made the whole citation style of the article uniform across the board. It's a high-quality article, though I say that in light of my own changes, and I think it deserves reassessment in quality. I don't think it would take long to push it to potentially qualify for Featured article status. --Kierkkadon talk/contribs 17:29, 23 January 2013 (UTC)

A subject specialist is requested to review Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/The Function-Behaviour-Structure Ontology. None of the cited sources appear to be available online so access to a well stocked library may be useful. Roger (Dodger67) (talk) 11:09, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Designit[edit]

Hello, designers! This old Afc submission will soon be deleted as a stale draft. The company seems to have won some awards. Are these notable awards, and should the article be kept? —Anne Delong (talk) 19:27, 17 February 2014 (UTC)

Popular pages tool update[edit]

As of January, the popular pages tool has moved from the Toolserver to Wikimedia Tool Labs. The code has changed significantly from the Toolserver version, but users should notice few differences. Please take a moment to look over your project's list for any anomalies, such as pages that you expect to see that are missing or pages that seem to have more views than expected. Note that unlike other tools, this tool aggregates all views from redirects, which means it will typically have higher numbers. (For January 2014 specifically, 35 hours of data is missing from the WMF data, which was approximated from other dates. For most articles, this should yield a more accurate number. However, a few articles, like ones featured on the Main Page, may be off).

Web tools, to replace the ones at tools:~alexz/pop, will become available over the next few weeks at toollabs:popularpages. All of the historical data (back to July 2009 for some projects) has been copied over. The tool to view historical data is currently partially available (assessment data and a few projects may not be available at the moment). The tool to add new projects to the bot's list is also available now (editing the configuration of current projects coming soon). Unlike the previous tool, all changes will be effective immediately. OAuth is used to authenticate users, allowing only regular users to make changes to prevent abuse. A visible history of configuration additions and changes is coming soon. Once tools become fully available, their toolserver versions will redirect to Labs.

If you have any questions, want to report any bugs, or there are any features you would like to see that aren't currently available on the Toolserver tools, see the updated FAQ or contact me on my talk page. Mr.Z-bot (talk) (for Mr.Z-man) 05:11, 23 February 2014 (UTC)

Comment on the WikiProject X proposal[edit]

Hello there! As you may already know, most WikiProjects here on Wikipedia struggle to stay active after they've been founded. I believe there is a lot of potential for WikiProjects to facilitate collaboration across subject areas, so I have submitted a grant proposal with the Wikimedia Foundation for the "WikiProject X" project. WikiProject X will study what makes WikiProjects succeed in retaining editors and then design a prototype WikiProject system that will recruit contributors to WikiProjects and help them run effectively. Please review the proposal here and leave feedback. If you have any questions, you can ask on the proposal page or leave a message on my talk page. Thank you for your time! (Also, sorry about the posting mistake earlier. If someone already moved my message to the talk page, feel free to remove this posting.) Harej (talk) 22:47, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

One of your project's articles has been featured[edit]

Today's Article For Improvement star.svg

Hello,
Please note that Game design, which is within this project's scope, has been selected as one of Today's articles for improvement. The article was scheduled to appear on Wikipedia's Community portal in the "Today's articles for improvement" section for one week, beginning today. Everyone is encouraged to collaborate to improve the article. Thanks, and happy editing!

WikiProject X is live![edit]

WikiProject X icon.svg

Hello everyone!

You may have received a message from me earlier asking you to comment on my WikiProject X proposal. The good news is that WikiProject X is now live! In our first phase, we are focusing on research. At this time, we are looking for people to share their experiences with WikiProjects: good, bad, or neutral. We are also looking for WikiProjects that may be interested in trying out new tools and layouts that will make participating easier and projects easier to maintain. If you or your WikiProject are interested, check us out! Note that this is an opt-in program; no WikiProject will be required to change anything against its wishes. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!

Note: To receive additional notifications about WikiProject X on this talk page, please add this page to Wikipedia:WikiProject X/Newsletter. Otherwise, this will be the last notification sent about WikiProject X.
