Lubrizol edit request[edit]

I am posting here to reach editors interested in editing articles about technology-driven companies. Specifically, I have suggested updates to the article about the specialty chemical company Lubrizol. I made an edit request at Lubrizol to replace the article's About section with this draft. I have discussed my draft with Devopam on the Lubrizol Talk page, but we agreed to have others give it a look. I have a conflict of interest as I work for The Lubrizol Corporation. Can an editor, or editors, review the draft, as well as the discussion on the Lubrizol Talk page? Lz maor (Talk · COI--Lubrizol employee) 21:46, 25 January 2017 (UTC)

Draft:iPen - is this a notable subject?[edit]

Dear technology experts: This draft about a computer accessory has lots of references, because the gadget was discussed in various tech and gadget magazines when it first came out. However, interest appears to have died away. Is this subject notable enough for an article? If not, should a summary of the content be included in another article, for example Stylus (computing)?—Anne Delong (talk) 05:29, 9 February 2017 (UTC)

Merge concepts of "air conditioning" and "refrigeration"? Comments requested[edit]

Please see

I think that descriptions of "air cooling" are all the same concept but somehow started to be described in multiples places. I am seeking advice on what can be merged together and where. Blue Rasberry (talk) 16:24, 6 March 2017 (UTC)

What are you proposing? • • • Peter (Southwood) (talk): 18:36, 6 March 2017 (UTC)
Pbsouthwood There is more there but I am going to merge a multi-part fork of the concept of the heat pump/refrigerator. I am posting here because it affects articles read by ~150,000 monthly. If you have comments please follow through the link, thanks. Blue Rasberry (talk) 21:31, 23 March 2017 (UTC)

Possible Hoax?[edit]

Suter (computer program) has been proposed for deletion as a hoax. However I am not familiar with the subject and would like someone more knowledgeable to confirm this before I hit the by by button. Thanks... -Ad Orientem (talk) 23:58, 14 April 2017 (UTC)

More Wholesome Intro[edit]

I think the beginning of the page should have a more wholesome intro. It does not really give an overview of sports equipment and describe what the article is going to talk about. Maryskijagfan (talk) 12:35, 17 April 2017 (UTC)

Maryskijagfan, I don't think wholesome is the word you are looking for, and I am not sure you are using the right page, as this is not the talk page for sports equipment. • • • Peter (Southwood) (talk): 17:14, 17 April 2017 (UTC)

Popular pages report[edit]

We – Community Tech – are happy to announce that the Popular pages bot is back up-and-running (after a one year hiatus)! You're receiving this message because your WikiProject or task force is signed up to receive the popular pages report. Every month, Community Tech bot will post at Wikipedia:WikiProject Technology/Popular pages with a list of the most-viewed pages over the previous month that are within the scope of WikiProject Technology.

We've made some enhancements to the original report. Here's what's new:

  • The pageview data includes both desktop and mobile data.
  • The report will include a link to the pageviews tool for each article, to dig deeper into any surprises or anomalies.
  • The report will include the total pageviews for the entire project (including redirects).

We're grateful to Mr.Z-man for his original Mr.Z-bot, and we wish his bot a happy robot retirement. Just as before, we hope the popular pages reports will aid you in understanding the reach of WikiProject Technology, and what articles may be deserving of more attention. If you have any questions or concerns please contact us at m:User talk:Community Tech bot.

Warm regards, the Community Tech Team 17:16, 17 May 2017 (UTC)
