Customer experience[edit]

This is with reference to my edit on Customer experience . You have reverted my edit . May I have your comments on same? for your ease my inputs were on following subject with following title  : Customer experience - Section - Customer Journey mapping ( explained about Omnichannel and its importance — Preceding unsigned comment added by Deepti.singh.0117 (talkcontribs)

I reverted it because it consisted entirely of unsourced opinion. The unnecessary listing of a for-profit corp as an example wasn't good either. - MrOllie (talk) 14:13, 21 March 2017 (UTC)

Deepti : Source is following : . Omni-channel talks about customer experience. I added term Omnichannel because content on customer experience was not talking about anything updated knowledge which is happening in existing world. I just explained how Omnichannel works. Yes I understand Genesys which is profit making organization could have been avoided. So is it ok if I remove Genesys and just small edit is good to go ahead. It will add value to the content . So is it ok to put following content : "Integration of channels has become a key criteria to provide a leading experience to consumers or customers and such integration of channels is known as Omnichannel. Omnichannel provides a seamless experience to customer where information never drops when customer switches communication channel" — Preceding unsigned comment added by Deepti.singh.0117 (talkcontribs) 05:08, 22 March 2017 (UTC) Is this ok ? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Deepti.singh.0117 (talkcontribs) 08:52, 24 March 2017 (UTC)

Edits to Hackathon page[edit]

Hello, How do you judge poorly sourced URLs ? I'm referring to your commits here: I wrote the section concerning and their Operation S.A.D, where patches were committed in Fedora & OpenSuse by senior developers. See: for example. All of those were done during Operation S.A.D:

See the guideline on identifying reliable sources. Was this written about in any newspapers or similar outlets? - MrOllie (talk) 14:10, 21 March 2017 (UTC)

Thank you for your reply. Here are the Maurtian newspapers that have covered it: Defimedia is the #1 news website of Mauritius, according to Alexa.

Wedgeantilles0 (talk) 10:25, 22 March 2017 (UTC)

I would be grateful if you would re-consider your reverts, as I have sent the link for defi-media. Also, the POV of the article (as a result of your edits) is too US/EU centric, and it gives the impression that the Hackathons can only be done in the US or Europe.

Information extraction in finance[edit]

Dear MrOllie

thank you for your message. I do appreciate your comment but the bit I added to the information extraction page was specifically was a reference to the "Information extraction in finance" which is essentially "the bible" for people wanting to search this topic. I noticed that that bit was completely missing and I have added it. It is a published book. The section was otherwise missing. Information extraction HAS been applied to finance and continues to be so! The trouble is that nobody adds the page as it is used primarily within hedge funds or banks and therefore nobody advertises that as they want to keep it private! I would very much appreciate if you could re-add that section to the information extraction page.— Preceding unsigned comment added by Tankst (talkcontribs)

No, you added a link to a book that you wrote and added a spam link to your website for good measure. Don't do either of those things again. - MrOllie (talk) 16:26, 22 March 2017 (UTC)

The book is indeed about information extraction in finance! For the rest I am honestly at my first wikipedia edit hence I did not know links to websites or whatever shouldn't be added. I can't see anything wrong with the link to a book though. Anyway whatever, I wasn't particularly seeking advertising or anything. I would however re-add the section about information extraction in finance. You can remove any links you want to my book or anything related to that, but information extraction IS used in finance whether we like it or not! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tankst (talkcontribs) 16:36, 22 March 2017 (UTC)

Another example here: (Reuters) and To some degree here:

There are plenty if you search online.

Therefore by all means you can remove any reference to my work (I really do NOT mind if you remove it) but a sentence to say that information extraction is used in finance should stay. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tankst (talkcontribs) 16:44, 22 March 2017 (UTC)

Edits to Universal Design by NYC Mayor's Office for People with Disabilities[edit]

We attempted to edit our previous entry from 2010 by adding a new paragraph, reorganizing the sections so that it is chronologically correct and adding the book cover. We are not trying to sell anything. This is a second edition of a seminal work by the NYC Mayor's Office that confirms it is a living document that is updated on a 5 or 6 year cycle. The City of New York owns the copyright and the cover photograph is permitted to be used under a contract between the City of New York and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

In November 2010, the International Code Council publication Inclusive Design Guidelines, New York City (IDG)[5] was released through the American Institute of Architects. The IDG is voluntary, prescriptive technical guidance that helps designers produce multisensory enhanced environments that accommodate a wide range of physical and mental abilities for people of all ages. This seminal universal design document is harmonized with A117.1 and a companion document to the New York City Building Code. It consolidates in one source, explicitly detailed design guidance that covers a substantial range of subject matter. The IDG is the result of collaboration between the New York City Mayor's Office for People with Disabilities, the International Code Council, Steven Winter Associates[6] and a diverse team of contributors including prominent design firms, advocates and people with disabilities.

In March 2017, the New York City Mayor's Office for People with Disabilities released the second edition published by the International Code Council. The Inclusive Design Guidelines, New York City, Second Edition (IDG) confirms that it is a living document and that Inclusive Design is dynamic. The premise of the book continues to hold true. Adoption of the ICC A117.1 standard has proven to be correct because of its relevant content, structure, numbering system and harmonization with the New York City Building Code, the 2010 ADA Standards, and other legal requirements. Automation, scooter accommodation and Active Design are emphasized. Expansion and refinements of this edition comprise 25% new content; 15% updates, and two hundred forty additional figures. The following are some examples: Chapter 1, marginal markings; Chapter 2, various laws governing accessibility and how these provisions relate to technical criteria; Chapter 3, a three-tiered (adult, child, institutional) spatial envelope system, gesture recognition, eye levels; Chapter 4, primary/ secondary/ tertiary routes, accessible pedestrian signals (APS), sensory pedestrian system (SPS) refinements, convertible walkways, embedded LED street crossings; Chapter 5, bicycle/scooter/tricycle/handcycle/tandem parking; Chapter 6, bottle filler stations, multipurpose bathing compartment components and a dozen example configurations, wet rooms, transfer sauna and steam compartments; Chapter 7, assistive listening systems categorizations, LinkNYC, mobile navigation, beacons, surface/embedded/saw cut tactile guideways; Chapter 8, single and multiple seating adjustable height platforms, type “a” and “b” temporary workspaces; Chapter 9, detailed bench criteria containing 23 items, automatic receptacles, refuse disposal/storage rooms; and Chapter 10, aligned closet platform lift conversions, beds, and home automation.

Can I ask what connection, if any, you have with this book and/or the International Code Council? - MrOllie (talk) 15:02, 23 March 2017 (UTC)

Edits to XXYY page[edit]

Dear MrOllie. I was wondering why you reverted my changes to the XXYY page. My contribution was a link to the UK website for XXYY which is a great resource for boys with XXYY. Also perhaps this isn't the appropriate forum, I have made the edit because my own son suffers from XXYY and that organisation was the best source of help for him. So, if you do live in the UK like me, being able to navigate to that organisation is of great help. Bear in mind that I do not have any affiliation whatsoever with the organisation myself, just we were greatly helped.

In relation to the prognosis of the boys affected living mostly a normal life, I am sorry I did not add any reference to it, but it is indeed the case, i.e. they do mostly have a normal life expectancy and live a normal life as reported in the literature.

I hope you can revert the edit please. I did not do it for me, but for the people suffering of the condition.

Please ignore this, it was reverted by someone else. I'll talk to them.— Preceding unsigned comment added by Tankst (talkcontribs)

We generally do not link to discussion groups, support groups and the like, see the guidelines on external links. Wikipedia rules about unreferenced medical claims and the appropriate sourcing for medicine are particularly strict, see the specific guideline we have on sourcing medicine. I won't be restoring your edits - they are not in agreement with the relevant guidelines. - MrOllie (talk) 17:06, 23 March 2017 (UTC)

Thank you. I'll get better with my posts as I get along, in this particular instance I'll find the appropriate reference. I do know it's true, just I have to find the appropriate reference to add. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tankst (talkcontribs) 17:09, 23 March 2017 (UTC)


I was planning on seconding your PROD, but an anon removed it so I have taken it to AfD. Walter Görlitz (talk) 20:42, 24 March 2017 (UTC)
