Welcome to Wikipedia from the Medicine Wikiproject![edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia and Wikiproject Medicine

Welcome to Wikipedia from Wikiproject Medicine (also known as WPMED).

We're a group of editors who strive to improve the quality of medical articles here on Wikipedia. One of our members has noticed that you are interested in editing medical articles; it's great to have a new interested editor on board. In your wiki-voyages, a few things that may be relevant to editing Wikipedia articles are:

  • Thanks for coming aboard! We always appreciate a new editor. Feel free to leave us a message at any time on our talk page. If you are interested in joining the project yourself, there is a participant list where you can sign up. Please leave a message on the WPMED talk page if you have any problems, suggestions, would like review of an article, need suggestions for articles to edit, or would like some collaboration when editing!
  • Sourcing of medical and health-related content on Wikipedia is guided by our medical sourcing guidelines, commonly referred to as MEDRS. These guidelines typically requires recent secondary sources to support information; its application is further explained here. Primary sources (case studies, case reports, research studies) are rarely used, especially if the primary sources are produced by the organisation or individual who is promoting a claim.
  • Wikipedia is a kingdom full of a wide variety of editors with different interests, skills, and knowledge. We all manage to get along through a lot of discussion that happens under the scenes and through the bold, edit, discuss editing cycle. If you encounter any problems, you can discuss it on an article's talk page or post a message on the WPMED talk page.

Feel free to drop a note on my talk page if you have any problems. I wish you all the best on your wiki voyages! --LT910001 (talk) 22:00, 14 June 2014 (UTC)

Help Request, s'il-vous-plaît[edit]

check-mark
This help request has been answered. If you need more help, you can ask another question on your talk page, contact the responding user(s) directly on their user talk page, or consider visiting the Teahouse.

Hello,

First I'd like to mention that I have been unable to obtain a satisfactory, complete answer to my question, despite trying several different searches in Google and reading through several of the search result pages. I only get bits and pieces everywhere, but the exact procedure still escapes me. Your help will be most appreciated.

What I would like to find out is simply this: how to reply to someone who reverts an edit I make. I do not wish to engage in debate with them, much less start an edit war . . . just want to know how to leave a comment addressed to them. For example there is a "thank you" link on the page that compares the previous and current versions of the text related to the edit, if that's what it is I would like to do, but from that page there's no link I see that I can use for what I'm asking . . . BUT :

If this is right, I did read that, from that very same page above, I can click the "Talk" tab that's next to the "Article" tab, both tabs being just above the title of the article at the top. If that's correct, then it's what I need to do right after this that I haven't been able to find out... what would that be? And how would I address my text to the particular user who reverted my edit (such that s/he would be aware of its existence)?

I'm sorry if this sounds very naïve; I'm really just a "drive-by editor", editing little things on the fly while I read articles that interest me. I've done virtually nothing else Wikipedia-related for the last few years, and so how-to procedure for even common things like the one I'm asking is unknown to me.

Normally that isn't a problem as I would just search for the answer, but this time that wasn't as successful as I'd hoped, so thanks very much for your willingness to help.

Mike M.

In order to "ping" a user (i.e. let them know you're talking about them) you can either use {{u}} or {{ping}}. For example, {{u|Primefac}} shows up as Primefac, and {{ping|Primefac}} shows up as @Primefac:. Both do exactly the same job, so it's really just how you want it to look. Then, you sign your post (~~~~) and the user will get a notification.
When you're on the "Talk" page, I would click the "New Section" button (unless there's already a section you want to comment on), which will put your comment in it's own section so everyone knows you're starting a new discussion. If you want more help, change the {{help me-helped}} back into a {{help me}}, stop by the Teahouse, Wikipedia's live help channel, or the help desk to ask someone for assistance. Primefac (talk) 01:49, 19 September 2017 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for February 19[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. An automated process has detected that when you recently edited Downtown Montreal, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Bee line (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are usually incorrect, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of unrelated topics with similar titles. (Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.)

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 11:23, 19 February 2018 (UTC)


Reply from original editor:

My apologies. I thought it would be alright in this case because the first sentence on the disambiguation page is:

  〝 A bee line is an idiom for the shortest route or a straight line between two points … 〞

… which does do the job of explaining it.

Thank you for the notification. I am consciously talking to a bot here … :)

Byford Dolphin[edit]

Are you aware that in these edits to Byford Dolphin, you introduced invisible characters to the text? Those six bytes could cause problems for anyone searching the text, etc. I'm not sure what you intended to do in those edits, but you may want to check how the app is causing that issue. --RexxS (talk) 12:55, 8 December 2018 (UTC)

possessive[edit]

You write: It's either that or "Arrhenius" needs an apostrophe at the end to indicate the possessive⁠ ⁠— as the linked article is in fact called "Arrhenius equation", I opted to leave the name intact and chose the former. I believe this is right, but maybe not so obvious. As far as I know laws (Newton's, Kepler's, etc.) are possessive, but functions, polynomials, and equations usually aren't. I remember a big discussion when I was in school about Green functions, which people like to make Green's functions, because it avoids the question about colorful functions. If there is an MOS to discuss it, tell me where and I will discuss it there. Thanks. Gah4 (talk) 07:06, 30 January 2019 (UTC)

Hi why have you added sections on liquid cooling without sources? Who are you, Chris Belisarius?

Usage of the word 'famed' without any references to back it up seems biased and original research.

Unicode stuff[edit]

A couple things regarding this edit to 0.999.... First, em dashes shouldn't be spaced in this context (see MOS:DASH), but en dashes are. Second, even if you want to space and prevent breaks (or whatever your intent was exactly), adding invisible unicode control characters like that is never a good idea (some of those were rendering as boxes on my tablet, and even otherwise, it's impossible to see what's there in the edit box when editing later). Use a template if one exists (like {{snd}}, {{thinsp}}, etc), or in the very worst case, if you really need to insert an invisible character, use an HTML entity: &foo;, etc. Thanks, –Deacon Vorbis (carbon • videos) 13:55, 26 October 2019 (UTC)

Bunion: reverted[edit]

Hi Mike, very much appreciated your comment / concern about not using a WP:MEDRS compliant source =) Having said that I would like to put this into perspective since the reference used is just that: a comprehensive summary of all available world-wide reliable sources.

Here is the conclusion published by German Journal of Foot and Ankle Surgery (by Milachowski y Krauss; Fuß & Sprunggelenk):

“The patients had a light to moderate hallux valgus with a mean angle of 28,8 degree. The results show statistically significant correction of the hallux valgus angle (…).”

Finally all references used are reliable and credited such as the above mentioned German Journal of Foot and Ankle Surgery, U.S. National Center of Biotechnology Information, U.S. National Library of Medicine, University of Yeungnam, South Korea, University of MS&R Adesh (you can find the full bibliography at the end of the reference).

Most importantly, the overall goal of Wikipedia is to present right and useful findings for our readers. Current conclusion “there is no evidence that any of these techniques reduces the physical deformity” is misleading. This is because 80% of bunion’s pathology is mild (i.e. Manchester Scale Grade 1), and on these cases the bunion splint is effective in reducing deformity.

Hope to have answered your concern and very much open to your POV. I wish you a wonderful day

MOS:COLON[edit]

Thanks for your interest in the Murder of Tess Richey article. Regarding your recent grammatical edit, while it's usually the case to not capitalize after a colon, MOS:COLON makes the following exception: In most cases a colon works best with a complete grammatical sentence before it. When what follows the colon is also a complete sentence, start it with a capital letter. (This is part of Wikipedia's house style; there is some discussion on this guideline at Wikipedia talk:Manual of Style/Archive 218 § MOS:COLON entry.) In the case of this article, the colon is introducing multiple sentences; that is, what precedes the colon applies to the rest of the paragraph. It's effectively an inline list. I was hoping that the capital following the colon would help to signal this. I reverted the edit back to how it had been (per WP:BRD), but I'm open to ideas if you have a better way to phrase it. Thanks, and happy editing! – Reidgreg (talk) 14:07, 7 January 2021 (UTC)

I disagree. While you did it on purpose, 99.9% of the time it's done because the person's grammar sucks, and doing it on purpose makes you look like you're in that group. If that doesn't bother you it's your business. In any case, I'll explain my position. I've made this particular edit dozens of times and will continue to do so because it is wrong, looks very wrong, and in the intelligent reader's mind lumps the author in with writers who don't know better, don't know what ess-apostrophe is, and don't know a run-on sentence from a sentence fragment or a misplaced modifier from a hole in the wall. I'm confident my edits are an improvement and see a revert as the other party's loss, and it happens infrequently enough —7 reverts out of 7,000 edits I think, give or take — that it really doesn't matter. As a result I not only don't engage in edit wars, I don't engage in debate or even discussion on these matters. I did reply to you, however, because your tone invites it, and deserves it. Best of luck to you, and regards. GuccizBud (talk) 18:02, 7 January 2021 (UTC)
