Cutis verticis gyrataCutis Verticis Gyrata — I created this page 5 years back, but didn't get the capitalisation correct at the time. The words Verticis and Gyrata should also be capitalised Cutis Verticis Gyrata is also known by the acronym CVG within the dermatological community. 78.86.166.102 (talk) 00:14, 30 May 2009 (UTC)

  • Disagree. I think the current capitalization is correct in Wikipedia terms (see Wikipedia:Manual of Style (capital letters)). "Verticis" is the Latin genitive of vertex, a common noun, and "gyrata" is an adjective from Latinized Greek: neither should be capitalized except at the beginning of a sentence. More importantly, the redirect from the capitalized version should exist, and the initialism should be mentioned in the article! Physchim62 (talk) 02:52, 30 May 2009 (UTC)
  • Oppose. The existence of an acronym does not require a medical term to be capitalized, and MEDMOS uses lowercase except on proper nouns (eponyms, geographic names). --Una Smith (talk) 04:34, 1 June 2009 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Does not appear to be a proper noun. The reason given for the change ("also known by the acronym CVG") is irrelevant. Acronyms for common nouns are usually in upper case, but the spelt out common noun is not capitalised. Nurg (talk) 09:12, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

Submission of a picture[edit]

I have this condition and would like to take a picture and donate it for the article. I don't ever edit Wikipedia and couldn't find picture criteria. What criteria do you look for in an image like this so that I can make sure you get what you need? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 192.158.48.18 (talk) 18:14, 4 September 2013 (UTC)

Hi. I would say there are no concrete guidelines in place - however a general common sense approach works well, such as ensuring the image taken should be one that only contains the relevant target. An image that is in focus, well lit and not over exposed. There are some pages I could direct you to that may be of relevance:
Hope that helps. 86.150.55.85 (talk) 03:41, 16 December 2013 (UTC)
