Edits to a Preservative page
I noticed that you reversed all edits to the Preservatives page since May 12th. A number of my students took on the task of editing the Wikipedia page using peer reviewed sources. I noticed that you disagreed with some of their edits but I don't understand why you removed ALL of their work. user:Lovittc.seattleu I will remind you of the revert policies used for Wikipedia. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Revert_only_when_necessary All posted information has gone through extensive classroom review before being posted. If there are significant issues, I ask that you contact the user user:Nicolaellen26 who made the edit so that they may have the ability to address the edits.
- To be blunt, the errors in the content were frequent and egregious enough that it is clear that the students don't even understand what a preservative is. Frankly, I'm very surprised to hear that the information went through "extensive classroom review". Was there no one reviewing the material who understands, for example, that a aspartame is not a preservative? Even though the article was poor in quality before the students edited it, on balance I think the added content lowered the quality of the article due to the errors and reverting to the older version was reasonable.

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Zinc pyrophosphate, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Ionic (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
Will look to
- Thanks. It looks like Smokefoot has already worked extensively on the article, though. ChemNerd (talk) 16:40, 16 June 2014 (UTC)
Copper reaction for acetophenone
In this edit, you wrote "the dehydration step to 1-phenylethanol is done over a copper catalyst." That doesn't make sense compared to the previous reaction in that section, which involves reduction to 1-phenylethanol and then dehydration to styrene. Could you double-check and clarify which of those two stages is copper doing? DMacks (talk) 02:14, 14 July 2014 (UTC)
- Sorry, that was my mistake. Thank you for your attention to detail. ChemNerd (talk) 14:18, 14 July 2014 (UTC)
