Infectious disease[edit]

Hi DO11.10. I have some time and I wanted to start plugging away at Infectious Disease again. Please check in when you have time. I valued our interactions 2 hears ago.

Me and Sockpuppetry[edit]

I am writing for help regarding 2 accounts that I have inadvertently set up and need to delete one of these accounts so that it does not appear that I am engaging in sock-puppetry.

I think that my first edit on the Wineville Chicken-Coop murders was a few months ago, and as I understand it, I initially registered under the account Beaconboy (caps??).

My computer had a virus and I suspect that when I re-registered again, I registered as Beaconmike, not Beaconboy.

I have only been editing on the Wineville Chicken Coop Murders, but unfortunately, I have edited under both registered names.

Currently I would like to eliminate the Beaconboy registered name and maintain the Beaconmike registered name.

I am requesting your suggestions as to how I can do that, or perhaps you can do it for me as an editor.

It is just an honest mistake on my part and there was never any attempt at sock-puppetry, and I swear this to you.

So what should I do to clean up my mistake. I do not wish to eliminate any edits I made under the registered name Beaconboy, but perhaps this is impossible to accomplish.

Looking forward to your suggestions and guidance.

Nineteen;twentynine is back[edit]

Hello! I was about to tag the article Nineteen;twentynine for inclusion in WikiProject Theatre when I noticed the page has been deleted once already (discussion here) but must have been recreated pretty soon afterwards. The edit page for the talk page said I should contact you before continuing. I'd appreciate you comments if you have a moment. Many thanks - danyoung - 18:21, 27 January 2010 (UTC)

Great artwork[edit]

I've been searching for some immune system art to include as a visual aid in a book about MS. I see that you have included several of "Jeanne Kelly's" diagrams from the national cancer institute along with the caveat that you have released any changes into the public domain. BUT if you go the the nat'l cancer institute they plainly say Jeanne Kelly's stuff can't be "repurposed". This is confusing... because the page citing the appropriate government stuff looks very official. Are you Jeanne releasing stuff to public domain? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.121.71.38 (talk) 00:08, 5 March 2010 (UTC)

Hmm, that is new. I do see the notice at the bottom of this page, which was not there when I uploaded my altered version of the images. This notice does not exist anywhere on the pdf version of the pamphlet (I have never seen a hard copy) and seems to be opposed to the instruction on this page stating that "All of these materials are in the public domain and may be reproduced without permission." As far as I am aware "repurposing" is fully allowed on PD works. I suppose I should probably contact NIAID to sort the matter out. I will relay my findings. Thank you for bringing this to my attention.--DO11.10 (talk) 23:58, 5 March 2010 (UTC)

User:Danaide posting exclusively to talk pages[edit]

Miss Mouse, I am not certain who to report this to. User:Danaide is almost exclusively posting incoherent English to talk pages of articles. (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Contributions&limit=500&target=Danaide) On inspection of User talk:Danaide other people have warned this user. Who should I report this to and is this a problem that needs to be addressed. Thanks. --Dan Dassow (talk) 00:36, 5 March 2010 (UTC)

I informed the user (again) that his talk page posts were inappropriate. I'll watch his contributions for more of the same, and will block if required. Cheers --DO11.10 (talk) 00:01, 6 March 2010 (UTC)

Recommend blocking User talk:167.206.175.18[edit]

Miss Mouse, I recommend yet another extended block of User talk:167.206.175.18. There has been repeated vandalism from that IP. Someone from that IP, blanked a large portion of Poliomyelitis which I just reverted. --Dan Dassow (talk) 13:02, 7 July 2010 (UTC)

FLC nomination[edit]

Miss Mouse, JuneGloom07 Talk? , Courcelles (talk) and I nominated the article List of awards and nominations received by Up in the Air for FLC. This list is a child article to Up in the Air (film).

Metaphor on NYTimes front page[edit]

Please reconsider your snap judgment about a sentence which appeared frivolous. As you can see, the citation support includes an embedded hyperlink. Please give this a quick read-through. This may help you to construe the jello metaphor in context.

Perhaps it may assist to quickly scan The Final Inch, an article about an Academy Award-nominated documentary?

The Final Inch focuses on the ongoing efforts to eradicate polio in India, Pakistan, and Afghanistan. The corollary goal of eradicating of worldwide polio has attracted attention, but "getting rid of the last 1 percent has been like trying to squeeze Jell-O to death." The philanthropic division of Google backed the film's production to promote public awareness about polio and to raise awareness about the efforts of public health workers and volunteers fighting the disease in counties around the world.

IMO, this disputed sentence is legitimate, on-target and justified -- especially in relation to the parts of the New York Times news story which explain a point of view expressed by some epidemiologists that the investment in eradicating polio is not worth pursuing. However, if you still feel that the metaphor has the wrong tone, I will want to correct my misjudgement in other articles besides the one you edited. --Tenmei (talk) 06:13, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

I am sorry if my removal offended you. Actually I did read the article in the citation prior to removing that sentence. The Times article had some good information, and a POV that many people have probably not have considered, but I really do feel that the "jello" metaphor is taken out of context and here just over-simplifies the situation and sounds silly (especially as the last sentence of the introduction). Your added information here does indeed help with the context issue for me personally, but others will obviously lack this information. I left the citation there because the article was interesting and presented some unique opinions from experts in the field, but the jello quote doesn't really do it justice. Would it be possible for you to add some of the information about the cost and obstacles of eradication from the NYTimes article to that section of our article?--DO11.10 (talk) 16:40, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

I feel like I'm more notable than Reese Roper.[edit]

Hi DO11.10,

I was just curious why you've removed me as a notable East High alumn? I feel like I'm at least as notable as Reese Roper.

MSU Interview[edit]

Dear DO11.10,

My name is Jonathan Obar user:Jaobar, I'm a professor in the College of Communication Arts and Sciences at Michigan State University and a Teaching Fellow with the Wikimedia Foundation's Education Program. This semester I've been running a little experiment at MSU, a class where we teach students about becoming Wikipedia administrators. Not a lot is known about your community, and our students (who are fascinated by wiki-culture by the way!) want to learn how you do what you do, and why you do it. A while back I proposed this idea (the class) to the communityHERE, where it was met mainly with positive feedback. Anyhow, I'd like my students to speak with a few administrators to get a sense of admin experiences, training, motivations, likes, dislikes, etc. We were wondering if you'd be interested in speaking with one of our students.


So a few things about the interviews:

  • Interviews will last between 15 and 30 minutes.
  • Interviews can be conducted over skype (preferred), IRC or email. (You choose the form of communication based upon your comfort level, time, etc.)
  • All interviews will be completely anonymous, meaning that you (real name and/or pseudonym) will never be identified in any of our materials, unless you give the interviewer permission to do so.
  • All interviews will be completely voluntary. You are under no obligation to say yes to an interview, and can say no and stop or leave the interview at any time.
  • The entire interview process is being overseen by MSU's institutional review board (ethics review). This means that all questions have been approved by the university and all students have been trained how to conduct interviews ethically and properly.


Bottom line is that we really need your help, and would really appreciate the opportunity to speak with you. If interested, please send me an email at obar@msu.edu (to maintain anonymity) and I will add your name to my offline contact list. If you feel comfortable doing so, you can post your nameHERE instead.

If you have questions or concerns at any time, feel free to email me at obar@msu.edu. I will be more than happy to speak with you.

Thanks in advance for your help. We have a lot to learn from you.

Sincerely,

Jonathan Obar --Jaobar (talk) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Chlopeck (talkcontribs) 23:12, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

Improving Immunology Articles[edit]

Hi DO11.10, 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♥~ 00:40, 6 May 2012 (UTC)

New medical organization[edit]

Hi

I'm contacting you because, as a participant at Wikiproject Medicine, you may be interested in a new multinational non-profit organization we're forming at m:Wikimedia Medicine. Even if you don't want to be actively involved, any ideas you may have about our structure and aims would be very welcome on the project's talk page.

Our purpose is to help improve the range and quality of free online medical content, and we'll be working with like-minded organizations, such as the World Health Organization, professional and scholarly societies, medical schools, governments and NGOs - including Translators Without Borders.

Hope to see you there! --Anthonyhcole (talk) 07:35, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

The Wikipedia Library now offering accounts from Cochrane Collaboration (sign up!)[edit]

The Wikipedia Library gets Wikipedia editors free access to reliable sources that are behind paywalls. Because you are signed on as a medical editor, I thought you'd want to know about our most recent donation from Cochrane Collaboration.

  • Cochrane Collaboration is an independent medical nonprofit organization that conducts systematic reviews of randomized controlled trials of health-care interventions, which it then publishes in the Cochrane Library.
  • Cochrane has generously agreed to give free, full-access accounts to 100 medical editors. Individual access would otherwise cost between $300 and $800 per account.
  • If you are still active as a medical editor, come and sign up :)

SPATRA reactivation[edit]

Hello DO11.10, I notice that you were involved in the project Wikipedia:Spanish Translation of the Week a few years ago. However I also notice that here has been very little activity since 2007. This is a project I'm particularly interested in and would love to see it revived. I've taken the bold step of identifying an article requiring translation and I'm in the process of inviting collaboration. The article History of Puerta del Sol could really use your help. In addition, I'd welcome any ideas you may have to help revive this project so that there is greater collaboration among ES>EN translators on en.Wikipedia. I'm identifying various contributors from whom the SPATRA project may benefit. If you have any recommendations then feel free to contact them directly or submit there usernames to me via my talkpage. I look forward to your participation. Gratefully - EagerToddler39 (talk) 02:12, 22 September 2013 (UTC)

Notification of pending suspension of administrative permissions due to inactivity[edit]

Information icon Following a community discussion in June 2011, consensus was reached to provisionally suspend the administrative permissions of users who have been inactive for one year (i.e. administrators who have not made any edits or logged actions in over one year). As a result of this discussion, your administrative permissions will be removed pending your return if you do not return to activity within the next month. If you wish to have these permissions reinstated should this occur, please post to the Wikipedia:Bureaucrats' noticeboard and the userright will be restored per the re-sysopping process (i.e. as long as the attending bureaucrats are reasonably satisfied that your account has not been compromised, that your inactivity did not have the effect of evading scrutiny of any actions which might have led to sanctions, and that you have not been inactive for a three year period of time). If you remain inactive for a three year period of time, including the present year you have been inactive, you will need to request reinstatement at WP:RFA. This removal of access is procedural only, and not intended to reflect negatively upon you in any way. We wish you the best in future endeavors, and thank you for your past administrative efforts.

DO11.10-TCR-sequence[edit]

Hi,

i came across your site during my search for plasmids encoding the DO11.10-TCR. Since you seem to be an expert on the DO11.10-transgenic-mouse, i would like to ask you, if you know if such a plasmid exists. (It has to, i guess. otherwise how was the mouse generated).

Do you know if the sequences for both chains are published? That would be even better.

You can contact me via: inan.edes@mdc-berlin.de

Looking forward to hear from you.

Best wishes,

sign up for monthly delivery


Wiki Project Med Foundation logo.svg
TWB.svg

This is the first of a series of newsletters for Wikiproject Medicine's Translation Task Force. Our goal is to make all the medical knowledge on Wikipedia available to the world, in the language of your choice.

note: you will not receive future editions of this newsletter unless you *sign up*; you received this version because you identify as a member of WikiProject Medicine

Spotlight - Simplified article translation


Wikiproject Medicine started translating simplified articles in February 2014. We now have 45 simplified articles ready for translation, of which the first on African trypanosomiasis or sleeping sickness has been translated into 46 out of ~100 languages. This list does not include the 33 additional articles that are available in both full and simple versions.

Our goal is to eventually translate 1,000 simplified articles. This includes:

We are looking for subject area leads to both create articles and recruit further editors. We need people with basic medical knowledge who are willing to help out. This includes to write, translate and especially integrate medical articles.

What's happening?


IEG grant
CFCF - "IEG beneficiary" and editor of this newsletter.

I've (CFCF) taken on the role of community organizer for this project, and will be working with this until December. The goals and timeline can be found here, and are focused on getting the project on a firm footing and to enable me to work near full-time over the summer, and part-time during the rest of the year. This means I will be available for questions and ideas, and you can best reach me by mail or on my talk page.

Wikimania 2014

For those going to London in a month's time (or those already nearby) there will be at least one event for all medical editors, on Thursday August 7th. See the event page, which also summarizes medicine-related presentations in the main conference. Please pass the word on to your local medical editors.

Integration progress

There has previously been some resistance against translation into certain languages with strong Wikipedia presence, such as Dutch, Polish, and Swedish.
What was found is that thre is hardly any negative opinion about the the project itself; and any such critique has focused on the ways that articles have being integrated. For an article to be usefully translated into a target-Wiki it needs to be properly Wiki-linked, carry proper citations and use the formatting of the chosen target language as well as being properly proof-read. Certain large Wikis such as the Polish and Dutch Wikis have strong traditions of medical content, with their own editorial system, own templates and different ideas about what constitutes a good medical article. For example, there are not MEDRS (Polish,German,Romanian,Persian) guidelines present on other Wikis, and some Wikis have a stronger background of country-specific content.

  • Swedish
    Translation into Swedish has been difficult in part because of the amount of free, high quality sources out there already: patient info, for professionals. The same can be said for English, but has really given us all the more reason to try and create an unbiased and free encyclopedia of medical content. We want Wikipedia to act as an alternative to commercial sources, and preferably a really good one at that.
    Through extensive collaborative work and by respecting links and Sweden specific content the last unintegrated Swedish translation went live in May.
  • Dutch
    Dutch translation carries with it special difficulties, in part due to the premises in which the Dutch Wikipedia is built upon. There is great respect for what previous editors have created, and deleting or replacing old content can be frowned upon. In spite of this there are success stories: Anafylaxie.
  • Polish
    Translation and integration into Polish also comes with its own unique set of challenges. The Polish Wikipedia has long been independent and works very hard to create high quality contentfor Polish audience. Previous translation trouble has lead to use of unique templates with unique formatting, not least among citations. Add to this that the Polish Wikipedia does not allow template redirects and a large body of work is required for each article.
    (This is somewhat alleviated by a commissioned Template bot - to be released). - List of articles for integration
  • Arabic
    The Arabic Wikipedia community has been informed of the efforts to integrate content through both the general talk-page as well as through one of the major Arabic Wikipedia facebook-groups: مجتمع ويكيبيديا العربي, something that has been heralded with great enthusiasm.
Integration guides

Integration is the next step after any translation. Despite this it is by no means trivial, and it comes with its own hardships and challenges. Previously each new integrator has needed to dive into the fray with little help from previous integrations. Therefore we are creating guides for specific Wikis that make integration simple and straightforward, with guides for specific languages, and for integrating on small Wikis.

Instructions on how to integrate an article may be found here [3]
