Making a Samsung Galaxy Task Force Edit

Since this wikiproject is active, i think its a good time to make a Samsung Galaxy task force. There is a TON of articles for improvement, like the Samsung Galaxy Tab series. i also think a task force will help organize articles related to Samsung Galaxy.

Reviewer needed for Synaptics requests Edit

Hi editors! I am looking for help with a requested edit for software and hardware developer Synaptics. The company was one of the early pioneers in touchpad technology. I've shared a new draft for the page's Products information to replace material that is largely sourced just to Synaptics and provide what is (hopefully) a more encyclopedic overview of the company's products. As well, I've asked about removal of an "Industry alliances" section that is not well sourced and very confusing. I'm an employee of the company and have a conflict of interest so I shouldn't make the edits myself and have posted a request instead. Can anyone here give feedback on my draft or point me to any other helpful venues? Thanks, Sheryl at Synaptics (talk) 19:11, 7 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Still hoping for help updating this information. Looking through the members list for this project, a lot seem to not be active, but I see User:Omegatron and User:Jw21 have edited fairly recently. Do either of you have some time available to review my request? Thanks. Sheryl at Synaptics (talk) 22:25, 17 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Project-independent quality assessments Edit

Quality assessments by Wikipedia editors rate articles in terms of completeness, organization, prose quality, sourcing, etc. Most wikiprojects follow the general guidelines at Wikipedia:Content assessment, but some have specialized assessment guidelines. A recent Village pump proposal was approved and has been implemented to add a |class= parameter to {{WikiProject banner shell}}, which can display a general quality assessment for an article, and to let project banner templates "inherit" this assessment.

No action is required if your wikiproject follows the standard assessment approach. Over time, quality assessments will be migrated up to {{WikiProject banner shell}}, and your project banner will automatically "inherit" any changes to the general assessments for the purpose of assigning categories.

However, if your project has decided to "opt out" and follow a non-standard quality assessment approach, all you have to do is modify your wikiproject banner template to pass {{WPBannerMeta}} a new |QUALITY_CRITERIA=custom parameter. If this is done, changes to the general quality assessment will be ignored, and your project-level assessment will be displayed and used to create categories, as at present.

Requested move at Talk:IPhone 6S#Requested move 3 May 2023 Edit

PMU and SMU Edit

I noticed these articles, Power Management Unit (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views) and System Management Unit (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views), they are written to seem to only exist on Macintosh computers, but PMUs and SMUs exist all over the place, not just as Apple parts. Shouldn't these be rewritten to show the wider world of PMUs and SMUs ? -- (talk) 13:57, 14 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yes. You are welcome to expand those articles. Constant314 (talk) 14:01, 14 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Possible article merge? "Current sense monitor" Edit

Greetings, While working on article de-orphaning, I found Current sense monitor, created November 2013 (9 years ago) (2013-11) and remaining just two short sentences. Asking for help here (outside my knowledge) to possibly merge into another article about portable battery products? It looks like good content, so it would be great to merge elsewhere rather than "Proposed deletion". Regards, JoeNMLC (talk) 19:12, 14 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Probably into current sensing? Hqb (talk) 19:46, 14 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

STATCOM article review Edit

I've been working on the STATCOM article the past month or so, as it was listed as a Start. I think I've got it updated to a good level now but would appreciate any feedback. As Flexible AC Transmission devices are something I work with, I'll probably look into updating some of those other articles too. Thanks. Tombo12354 (talk · contribs) 29 June 2023

Assessd B by Tombo12354. That checks out but it is usually best to let others do the assessment of articles you've done significant work on. You can submit requests at Wikipedia:WikiProject_Electronics/Assessment#Requests_for_assessment. ~Kvng (talk) 18:22, 2 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Radar engineering details Edit

This Radar side article is a bit unusual in my experience. Please contribute to discussion at Talk:Radar#Proposed_merge_of_Radar_engineering_details_into_Radar. ~Kvng (talk) 15:40, 3 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

18650 Battery revision Edit

I just created Draft:18650_battery, could somebody take a look? I need help w/ battery chemistry + citations JayCubby (talk) 14:17, 4 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks, this is a clearly notable subject and a competent stub that doesn't need to be in Draft space. I'm working on getting it accepted to mainspace so we can have contributions from the wider community. ~Kvng (talk) 16:42, 7 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you so much! I'm new to article-lvl WP editing, as you can probby tell. JayCubby (talk) 18:21, 7 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Unfortunately, my work on this was derailed by another reviewer. See discussion at Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Articles_for_creation#Draft:18650_battery. ~Kvng (talk) 03:38, 17 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
sry to get back to you so late. No worries, looks like I'll have to raise a stink at wp:list of battery sizes. I just stick it in the talk page, no? JayCubby (talk) 20:03, 7 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Posting something at Talk:List of battery sizes might help if editors there are receptive to a new article. You could also try to resubmit for another WP:AFC review and see if it goes differently the second time. I still support accepting the draft but, for technical reasons, administrator help is needed on this one. ~Kvng (talk) 00:39, 8 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Infinite impulse response, pic error Edit

Hello, not sure it this is correct way to report, but in image "IIR filter example" the a(n) coefs should read -a(n) IMHO. regards, devik (talk) 07:31, 17 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
