WikiProject Amphibians and Reptiles assessment drive[edit]

At WikiProject Amphibians and Reptiles, in which you are listed as a member, we're working on a pretty massive backlog (1000+ articles!) of unassessed articles. We would appreciate it greatly if you would help assess the articles in the link. It's simple to do!

  1. Read over the article.
  2. On the discussion page, look for the {{AARTalk}} template. Add in a "class" and "importance" parameter if the template does not have them already. Example: {{AARTalk|class= |importance= }}
  3. For the class, fill in the article's quality using the WikiProject's quality scale: stub, start, C, B, GA, A, or FA. Most unassessed articles will probably be stubs or start class articles, and definitely B or lower.
  4. For the importance, fill in the article's importance to the WikiProject using the importance scale: low, mid, high, or top. Most unassessed articles will probably be low or mid importance.
  5. Then you're done!

It's not a difficult task, but there's a lot to get done. Our hope is that we can chip through the backlog and assess every article within the auspices of the project. Thanks, bibliomaniac15 00:31, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

Gosh, where did all those articles spring from :) -- I'll try to get to that (promise!) but right now I'm just swamped with real work!! Maybe be a little freer in a couple of weeks.... ~ Ciar ~ (Talk) 05:23, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

Hi Graham, I have never actually edited this page but could take a look if needed--the link shows the discussion is closed though, after your original posting. Will you be renominating it for deletion? ~ Ciar ~ (Talk) 04:38, 24 March 2011 (UTC)

Please look again at my edit on the article Allergy and tell me that it was unwarranted. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 132.236.150.252 (talk) 04:54, 18 April 2011 (UTC)

Hello Ciar,

I'm not sure how to pronounce this nickname, but it looks to me like a "tzar" word - "king" in Russian :-) Anyway, I have a question which you might be able to readilly answer. Why "jurkat" cells are called "jurkat"?

Thanks, Mike Mnikit (talk) 20:30, 20 February 2012 (UTC)

Science lovers wanted![edit]

Science lovers wanted!
Smithsonian logo color.svg
Hi! I'm serving as the wikipedian-in-residence at the Smithsonian Institution Archives until June! One of my goals as resident, is to work with Wikipedians and staff to improve content on Wikipedia about people who have collections held in the Archives - most of these are scientists who held roles within the Smithsonian and/or federal government. I thought you might like to participate since you are interested in the sciences! Sign up to participate here and dive into articles needing expansion and creation on our to-do list. Feel free to make a request for images or materials at the request page, and of course, if you share your successes at the outcomes page you will receive the SIA barnstar! Thanks for your interest, and I look forward to your participation! Sarah (talk) 01:05, 17 April 2012 (UTC)

Improving Immunology Articles[edit]

Hi Ciar, 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♥~ 00:54, 6 May 2012 (UTC)
