Denaturation Disambiguation[edit]

Hey. I've created a disambiguation page for denaturation, so when you want to link to the biochemical definition, use the following: [[Denaturation (Biochemistry)|denaturation]] , rather than just [[denaturation]]. You can put whatever you like after the pipe (eg: denatured, denaturing, etc), and that text will be visible. --Kieran 11:14, 8 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Incorrect Reversion[edit]

Hi there

You reverted the edits I'm making on the WikiProject Cell Signaling page. I am still in the process of updating the entire Project. I believe you reverted erroneously. Biochemza 14:27, 2 November 2007 (UTC)

  • I have no idea what might have caused this, as there is no offensive content whatsoever in the edit you made. I guess i simply misclicked in Lupin, causing me to revert the wrong page. My apologies for this, and good luck with updating the project! :) --Excirial (Talk,Contribs) 14:33, 2 November 2007 (UTC)


Welcome to MCB, I hope you enjoy having us as colleagues. The project talk pages are great places to discuss ideas and get feedback, while if you have any specific questions please don't hesitate to drop me a note on my talk page. All the best Tim Vickers 16:15, 2 November 2007 (UTC)

Cell signaling project tags[edit]

These tags and headers should be placed within the respective talk pages for each article that falls within the category - not at the top of the page. It's a general consensus and wiki guideline that such tags are obtrusive and altogether distracting to the reader. Cheers. Wisdom89 03:24, 3 November 2007 (UTC)

Wikiproject boxes go on Talk pages[edit]

Please don't put wikiproject templates on articles as you did with Template:Cell Signaling Project on Juxtacrine signalling. They do not belong there. Put them on the talk (discussion) page associated with the article. -R. S. Shaw 03:25, 3 November 2007 (UTC)

What about when placing the Project Banner (with class=Category) on Category pages? I mean, really, who looks at Cat:Talk pages? Biochemza, 11:13, 6 November 2007 (UTC)
I don't see this question addressed directly in any of the Wikipedia guidance pages; you may be the first to want to persue it. (I know I haven't seen WikiProject boxes on category pages or on category talk pages.) I would advise against using the category page, as a WikiProject reference is what is called a "self-reference" - that is, a reference to the Wikipedia project mechanisms (rather than encyclopedic content). Categories are considered part of content, like articles, and unlike talk pages and "Wikipedia:" pages. See Wikipedia:Avoid self-references#In the Template and Category namespaces. Another piece of related guidance is Wikipedia:Categorization FAQ#What goes on a category page?. I think someone interested in participating in a WikiProject's activities will find out via article talk pages; categories aren't really useful for advertising the project. If you are trying to "claim" the category (which one can't) or inform maintainers, the category talk page is a good place. -R. S. Shaw 19:15, 6 November 2007 (UTC)

Cell Signaling[edit]

Thanks for letting me know about your work in the area of WikiProject Cell Signaling. In the near future, I plan to be doing some wiki editing in the topic area of hormones. Since my interests take me beyond what is suited for encyclopedia content I edit both at Wikipedia and Wikiversity. --JWSchmidt 14:38, 3 November 2007 (UTC)

Wikipedia:WikiProject Citation cleanup[edit]

Thanks for joining the Citation cleanup WikiProject. As you may have already seen, we're not a very active project. But nonetheless, thanks for joining. Regards, Rudget 22:00, 16 November 2007 (UTC)


Hi there, I've put some links on the DNA vaccination talkpage that explain the standard formatting for Wikipedia articles. Tim Vickers (talk) 23:04, 21 November 2007 (UTC)

Greetings! A stub template or category which you created has been nominated for renaming or deletion at Wikipedia:Stub types for deletion. The stub type most likely doesn't meet Wikipedia requirements for a stub type, through failure to meet standards relating to the name, scope, current stub hierarchy or likely size, as explained at Wikipedia:Stub. Please feel free to make any comments at WP:SFD regarding this stub type, and in future, please consider proposing new stub types first at Wikipedia:WikiProject Stub sorting/Proposals!

Inviting you to WikiAfrica Incubator![edit]

Hey Biochemza,

WikiAfrica invites you to support the Africa Incubator

WikiAfrica is pleased to invite you as a self-declared African Wikipedian to evaluate the Africa Incubator. WikiAfrica has created the Africa Incubator to support and assist new authors, as they create their first articles and learn the ins and outs of contributing to Wikipedia.

The Africa Incubator is a ‘soft landing’ for new authors to develop articles that relate to Africa. It assists them in becoming compliant and knowledgeable of Wikipedia principles and rules. Based within the Wikipedia framework, the Africa Incubator is fully interactive and enables feedback, assistance and forums.

This is where we need your help! For the Africa Incubator to be successful, it needs the intervention, interaction and experience of Incubator Mentors. We are looking for a pool of active experienced Wikipedians to consistently participate in ’owning’ the Africa Incubator. Incubator Mentors will assist new comers through the editing process. They will also help test and expand the Africa Incubator, and will play a vital role in encouraging newcomers to be Wikipedians for life

Please visit WikiAfrica Incubator to give us your honest feedback and evaluation. WikiAfrica is a ground-breaking project that is designed to Africanise Wikipedia by generating and expanding 30,000 articles over two years. Find out more about this project here WikiAfrica. To get involved, contact Francis [] Twitter:!/wikiafrica Facebook: --Awinda 12:17, 6 March 2012 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Awinda (talkcontribs)

Improving Immunology articles[edit]

Hi Biochemza, I am simply an editor who thinks some of the immunology articles on Wikipedia are far from complete and the quality can be easily improved. I'd love to do it all by myself, but it'd be even better to do it in a team, to be more efficient as well as to get a wider viewpoints (from the medical, molecular and cellular viewpoints for example). If you are interested, please go to here and just start editing. The purpose of the page (it's a new page) is simply to get everyone together and collaborate, as to ensure there's editors for different topics. I look forward to working with you soon, any help would be greatly appreciated. Kinkreet~♥moshi moshi♥~ 00:36, 6 May 2012 (UTC)

Call for Wikipedians in Residence in Africa[edit]


I hope you are well and thriving!! WikiAfrica has just put out a call for two Wikipedians in Residence. One in Cape Town at WikiAfrica, at the Africa Centre; and the other for WikiAfrica Cameroon in Douala, at doual’art. If you are interested, please contact either Marilyn [] for the WikiAfrica Cameroon call or Isla [] for the WikiAfrica position in Cape Town.

If you are not interested in applying, I would be very grateful if you could spread this call far and wide among your networks to ensure that both projects get excellent candidates. Here is the link for the information page:

Best regards, Islahaddow

BACKLOG OF THE WEEK Category:Pages with broken reference names[edit]

Hello - some editors fight off the vandal hordes, as I do repairing pages with citation errors. If I didn't - there would be a large backlog in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting and in Category:Pages with missing references list as in Category:Pages with broken reference names (more than 1500 yesterday). But it is impossible to work it alone. Do you know how to do a "Blitz" (excuse the comparision) to find willing editors to work on it. It is much more easier to repair references if you do it one hour, one day or one week ago after the errors were made instead of months and years after the error was done. Very, very difficult to find these errors.

Only with WikiBlame Search it is possible to find and repair such errors.

Best wishes & thanks --Frze > talk 09:10, 10 October 2013 (UTC)

New REFBot[edit]

There is a suggestion on Wikipedia:Bot requests for a new REFBot working as DPL bot and BracketBot do. I beg politely for consideration. Please leave a comment if you wish. Thanks a lot in anticipation. --Frze > talk 03:57, 22 October 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link fixing one-day contest[edit]

I have decided to put on a mini-contest within the November 2013 monthly disambiguation contest, on Saturday, November 23 (UTC). I will personally give a $20 gift card to the disambiguator who fixes the most links on that server-day (see the project page for details on scoring points). Since we are not geared up to do an automated count for that day, at 00:00, 23 November 2013 (UTC) (which is 7:00 PM on November 22, EST), I'll take a screenshot of the project page leaderboard. I will presume that anyone who is not already listed on the leaderboard has precisely nine edits. At 01:00, 24 November 2013 (UTC) (8:00 PM on November 23, EST), I'll take a screenshot of the leaderboard at that time (the extra hour is to give the board time to update), and I will determine from that who our winner is. I will credit links fixed by turning a WP:DABCONCEPT page into an article, but you'll have to let me know me that you did so. Here's to a fun contest. Note that according to the Daily Disambig, we currently have under 256,000 disambiguation links to be fixed. If everyone in the disambiguation link fixers category were to fix 500 links, we would have them all done - so aim high! Cheers! bd2412 T 02:01, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
