2016 Community Wishlist Survey Proposal to Revive Popular Pages[edit]

Magic Wand Icon 229981 Color Flipped.svg

Greetings WikiProject Engineering Members!

This is a one-time-only message to inform you about a technical proposal to revive your Popular Pages list in the 2016 Community Wishlist Survey that I think you may be interested in reviewing and perhaps even voting for:

If the above proposal gets in the Top 10 based on the votes, there is a high likelihood of this bot being restored so your project will again see monthly updates of popular pages.

Further, there are over 260 proposals in all to review and vote for, across many aspects of wikis.

Thank you for your consideration. Please note that voting for proposals continues through December 12, 2016.

Best regards, SteviethemanDelivered: 17:59, 7 December 2016 (UTC)

Category:Automation <> Category:Control engineering[edit]

Does anyone have an opinion on whether Category:Automation should be part of Category:Control engineering or they should maybe be categorized the other way around?

Automation seems to have a much wider scope than Control engineering so maybe the relation should be reversed.

Missing topics list[edit]

My lists of missing topics about engineering part 1 & part2 are updated (maybe third one needed later...) - Skysmith (talk) 19:24, 8 January 2017 (UTC)

WikiJournal of Science promotion[edit]

WikiJournal of Science logo.svg

The WikiJournal of Science is a start-up academic journal which aims to provide a new mechanism for ensuring the accuracy of Wikipedia's scientific content. It is part of a WikiJournal User Group that includes the flagship WikiJournal of Medicine.[1][2]. Like Wiki.J.Med, it intends to bridge the academia-Wikipedia gap by encouraging contributions by non-Wikipedians, and by putting content through peer review before integrating it into Wikipedia.

Since it is just starting out, it is looking for contributors in two main areas:


  • See submissions through external academic peer review
  • Format accepted articles
  • Promote the journal


  • Original articles on topics that don't yet have a Wikipedia page, or only a stub/start
  • Wikipedia articles that you are willing to see through external peer review (either solo or as in a group, process analagous to GA / FA review)
  • Image articles, based around an important medical image or summary diagram

If you're interested, please come and discuss the project on the journal's talk page, or the general discussion page for the WikiJournal User group.

Applications of multiple coordinate systems[edit]

Can someone who understands higher math please have a look at this article and try to make heads or tails of it? For the life of me I cannot comprehend what it's for or if it's necessary or encyclopedic. If it isn't, I'm happy to do the work taking it to AfD, I just need someone who can read it to tell me so. If it is worth keeping, please point me in the direction of where I could de-orphan it? ♠PMC(talk) 14:35, 17 February 2017 (UTC)
