Google Pixel Merger Discussion
The articles Pixel (smartphone) and Pixel 2 could potentially be merged onto the Google Pixel article. Any feedback is welcome and encouraged. The area for discussion can be found here. Plantduets (talk) 16:32, 8 August 2018 (UTC)
Uploading 3D animations to better explain how engineering components and machines work.
I am totally new on Wikipedia. I use Wikipedia a lot and wanted to upload some videos here as a way of saying 'thanks'. My company produces 3D animations so I am only really investing the time it takes to edit the videos and then upload them. I wanted to upload videos similar to this:
Pinch Valve - Showing how it works:
Each video would show clearly how a certain valve works. We have about nine valves in our 3D database and can make the videos from any angle. I just need to know roughly how long they should be? Essentially I just want to show how the valve operates and how they look in real life. There will be no branding in the video or watermarks etc. I have checked through most of the valves on wikipedia and the articles definitely would benefit from a working animation video.
My main question is, if I start uploading videos of valves will they be removed because they are all from me and must be attributed to my website? I don't want to get banned before I even start.
If this went well, I would also upload some 3D animations showing an engine working etc. We have about 300 3D models in the database and they are all engineering related.
Scientific digital cameras article
I would like to expand the Imperva article with well-sourced information, but since I work for the company, I would like some feedback on the new content. Please see my comment on the article's Talk Page. Talk:Imperva for suggested source materials. --Tamicasey (talk) 18:25, 7 September 2018 (UTC)
As I discussed at Talk:KosherSwitch#Patent, I am having a bit of trouble figuring out [ https://patentimages.storage.googleapis.com/48/4f/8c/b1df4e115e8359/US7872576.pdf ]. In particular, I am having trouble with
- "FIG. 3 shows an embodiment of the present invention including a device having one pair consisting of one transmitter positioned opposite one receiver. FIG. 5 shows an embodiment of the present invention including a device having two pairs, each pair consisting of a transmitter positioned opposite a receiver."
What is the point of the two transmitters and receivers (which anyone else would call light sources and light detectors)? Figure 7 shows one or the other being blocked. Why?
Because I can't conceive of an engineer who isn't also interested in the religious aspects (and because the religious aspects may be the reason for the two sets of light sources and light detectors), I discuss them at Talk:KosherSwitch#Patent. I would like to keep all discussion on this centralized there. --Guy Macon (talk) 07:56, 6 October 2018 (UTC)
There does not appear to be a more-specific project regarding Lock (security device), so I am posting here.
I have recently created Glossary of locksmithing terms and merged several articles which were primarily unsourced WP:DICTDEFs to that page. I intend to continue to expand that article throughout this week, both by merging further stub dictionary definitions, and by adding other terms not currently discussed anywhere on Wikipedia. power~enwiki (π, ν) 18:27, 8 October 2018 (UTC)
