Reply on my editsEdit

Dear MrOllie,

I made some edits to the NuVinci Continuously Variable Transmission page some weeks ago, which were redacted. You redacted them and then posted a notice on my profile. I understood the reasons for the redaction and wrote my reply on my talk page. I am also new to Wikipedia editing or editing suggestion, and so I am not always sure what is the right (and Wikipedia's cultural) way to proceed. Because I didn't get a reply from you yet, I am following up on your own talk page.

Indeed, your impression is correct. I am employed at enviolo (successor of NuVinci). This is also my first time actively editing Wikipedia and learning the standards of the foundation. My regrets for my mistake and thank you for notifying me. In order to not break the Terms of Use any further, I've added a disclosure immediately after your notification and will refrain from making further changes to any pages.

I have a more complete reply on my talk page - and you can check my (longer) response there.

To summarize, much of the information on the NuVinci page is outdated or no longer correct, and I would now like to work out how it can be acceptable to update information in the future. I understand Wikipedia's need for neutrality - I hope you also understand from our point of view that we also appreciate that the information in Wikipedia correctly educates users and internauts about our products, technologies, and their history. I am a Digital Coordinator, and at some point, someone else in PR or Communications might take the lead on communicating suggestions through Talk pages and interacting with the Wikipedia community. In the meantime, it would be useful to prepare ahead for that.

There's a lot I don't know. So again, thank you, I really appreciate that you pointed out some of the most important rules of Wikipedia.

Please feel free to respond here or on my profile.

I don't have anything else to add. As mentioned before, read the COI guidelines thoroughly and use talk pages instead of writing about your company in article space yourself. MrOllie (talk) 15:09, 19 October 2021 (UTC)[]
Thank you, we will try like that. We hope that our feedback can be heard and considered when we do so deliver through the Talk pages and that it results in a more positive way to work. Ricardodnpereira (talk) 15:24, 19 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Sentiment Analysis editsEdit

Hello Mr Olie!

I recently made some edits to the Sentiment Analysis wikipage which you've since removed. May I know what are the reasons for doing so?

Thank you! Turq6ise (talk) 03:29, 22 October 2021 (UTC)[]

It was promotion of the company sentic.net. - MrOllie (talk) 11:33, 22 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Fintech - my changesEdit

I have seen that my changes to Fintech have not been accepted. I of course want to follow the guidelines but as I am new with Wikipedia, would you please explain what must be changed in my edition. For all the content I ushttps://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User_talk:MrOllie&action=edit&section=newed, the sources are given - also the page numbers. Even double blind peer reviews exist on the topic from the same author and same content. Thank you for your help and feedback.

As I mentioned in the edit summary, your additions were misplaced in the article (part of it was added above the lead section), and generally had a essay-style tone - they were written informally, and were making arguments and expressing the author's point of view in Wikipedia's voice. See WP:NPOV, WP:OR, and WP:BETTER for details. MrOllie (talk) 14:35, 22 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Luigi Moretti Contributions to Parametric designEdit

Dear MrOllie, thanks for your time, I'm not very used to Wikipedia, so hope I'm not doing anything wrong. I understand you did that edit to preserve Wikipedia from wrong uses, My will too is to contribute towards a better Wikipedia in those fields in which I have competence. Luigi Moretti's contributions to parametric architecture are clear and recognized by the scientific community

This is a paper by John Frazer, on a 2016 paper where he talks about the history of parametric explains how Moretti invented Parametric Architecture, the paper is published inside Architectural Design https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1002/ad.2019 The laws of parametric architecture are an important turning point for parametric design, explaining why and how the research should focus on the parameter and not on shapes or other topics as example, Greg Lynn, cited in the page, which is undoubtedly one of the greatest protagonists of digital architecture, has never talked about parameters, on the contrary, he speaks mainly of shapes, but parametric design is not a formal question, it is related to the process.

The text say "One of the first architects and theorists that used computers to generate architecture was Greg Lynn" but parametric design is not about using a computer, sure now we use computers with this approach, but when Moretti started he did his calculation and drawings by hand, as Otto and Gaudì

Frank Ghery, cited under the Catia section, was the first architect to use splines for the Peix d`Or project in Barcelona, he used Catia, but not with a parametric approach, a spline is a way to describe a curve, he is recognized as one of the greatest masters of Deconstructivist architecture, but he never talked about parametric architecture

About software in the same page, that list is basically advertising, the new rise of parametric design starts with grasshopper 3d, a software now integrated inside Rhinoceros and created by David Rutten in 2007, that defined the new advent of parametric design as a process, Now almost any design software allows a kind of parametric design, even BIM methods are based on a parametric logic which follows the logics of object oriented programming, so which is the sense of that list?

Thanks for your help — Preceding unsigned comment added by DesignDigital (talkcontribs) 19:59, 22 October 2021 (UTC)[]


Hello MrOllie, I added a new reference to the Bees Algorithm article but I think you subsequently removed that reference. The reference is relevant to the article. I would appreciate it if you would reinstate it. Many thanks --Bees Algorithm (talk) 20:58, 23 October 2021 (UTC)[]

The new citation supports no new content in the article - it is redundant. - MrOllie (talk) 02:06, 24 October 2021 (UTC)[]
