Penguinone listed at Redirects for discussion[edit]


An editor has asked for a discussion to address the redirect Penguinone. Since you had some involvement with the Penguinone redirect, you might want to participate in the redirect discussion if you have not already done so. ekips39 04:04, 1 December 2014 (UTC)

Category:Veronica Mars images[edit]

I'm BenLinus1214. When I was going to recreate the category "Veronica Mars images", I saw that you had previously deleted the category because it was empty. However, I would like to put new files into this category because I have recently begun rewriting the articles on Veronica Mars episodes to include images, a more detailed plot summary, more reliable sources, and production/reception sections. But because I am a relatively new user, I just wanted to contact you to make sure that there's no problem with recreating the category. Thanks! :) BenLinus1214 (talk) 21:16, 3 December 2014 (UTC)

The deletion of the empty category was just a bit of housekeeping. I have no objection to it being created again if it's going to be used. Regards, -- Ed (Edgar181) 21:52, 3 December 2014 (UTC)
Thank you! :) BenLinus1214 (talk) 23:03, 3 December 2014 (UTC)

Blocking Totallystraight69[edit]

Because I had started the talk page for this editor it was on my watchlist and I saw you had blocked Totallystraight69 on the grounds that he was (Clearly not here to contribute to the encyclopedia). Did you look at the only other contribution of the individual concerned? I think not or you would have undone his other edit! Cwmhiraeth (talk) 14:30, 4 December 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for reverting the vandalism that I missed. Regards, -- Ed (Edgar181) 15:52, 4 December 2014 (UTC)
Well, I missed it too, first time round. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 18:05, 4 December 2014 (UTC) (talk · contribs)[edit]

Deserves a talk page block. MadGuy7023 (talk) 16:02, 4 December 2014 (UTC)

Looks like they have stopped for awhile now, but I'll keep an eye on it. Thanks for letting me know. -- Ed (Edgar181) 00:08, 5 December 2014 (UTC)

Pied Piper Pest Management (talk · contribs)[edit]

Sounds like a talk page block for this user. MadGuy7023 (talk) 18:22, 7 December 2014 (UTC)

Yep. I revoked talk page access. Thanks for letting me know. -- Ed (Edgar181) 19:00, 7 December 2014 (UTC)


Hello Edgar, thank you for illustrating the pages that I started for Fostemsavir and BIT225, both are much appreciated. Would you do me the favor of creating a similar page for phosphonated carbocyclic 2'-oxa-3'aza nucleosides (PCOANs), please? You'll see that I have reference those compounds on the page for HTLV, as they are have potential in the furtherance of treatment. Thank you in advance. — Preceding unsigned comment added by TonyDewitt (talkcontribs) 20:16, 8 December 2014 (UTC)

I may not be able to get to it right away, but I'll take a look soon. -- Ed (Edgar181) 11:44, 9 December 2014 (UTC)


I kind of suspect they are impersonating me. The user's first edit was to send a Wikilove Message to User talk:Thebeastthepro, a user who I warned for vandalism. The latter account blanked the second warning they received. That raises the suspicion the Crboyer2.0 account is up to something. I warned them about the user name. How else do I deal with this user?Crboyer (talk) 21:32, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

Crboyer: I undid your revert on Thebeastthepro's talk page, because a user is allowed to remove warnings from their own talk page. I have blocked Crboyer2.0 and left a note on the talk page about the (IMO) obvious attempt to impersonate. ☺ · Salvidrim! ·  01:44, 15 December 2014 (UTC)
Crboyer, I didn't realize the connection with the user's first edit. That definitely raises suspicion. I see that the admin Salvidrim! has blocked the user now, which looks like the right thing to do. Regards, -- Ed (Edgar181) 13:05, 15 December 2014 (UTC)


Hi, please help, if somebody is blocked how would the person login to place unblock so that the admin would know it's the person, hence he couldn't login? (talk) 05:40, 16 December 2014 (UTC)

A registered user that is blocked from editing is still able to login to their account and in most cases they are still able to edit their own user talk page. -- Ed (Edgar181) 12:21, 16 December 2014 (UTC)

Article integrated fluorometer[edit]

Dear Edgar,

I would like to comment the wikipedia article “integrated fluorometer”. The term integrated fluorometer is created by the company(ADC) for an instrument combination of gas exchange analysis instrument and chlorophyll fluorescence as it is used commonly in plant science. Such system combinations are provided by other companies e.g. Licor, Walz, PP-Systems but are not called integrated fluorometer in the literature/scientific publications. This term can be legitimated as integrated chlorophyll fluorometer by the fact that the chloropyhll fluorometer is mechanically attached to the gas exchange system and the analysis allows the estimation of the mesophyll conductance by modelling from parameters analyzed by gas exchange and chlorophyll fluorometry. But the term integrated fluorometer is highly misleading as fluorometry is widely used in science. There are various kinds of fluorometers –and many of them are integrated into other analysis systems. This article is primarily a promotional article for their gas exchange/chlorophyll fluorometer system.Felim 5 (talk) 21:27, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

There are several related articles that have this issue of having been heavily edited by users with a connection to ADC BioScientific (and therefore have a potential conflict of interest). It appears to me to be paid advocacy. The articles include ADC Bioscientific, integrated fluorometer, Plant tissue test, Chlorophyll fluorescence, Plant stress measurement, and probably others. I brought this up at the Conflict of Interest Noticeboard awhile ago: Wikipedia:Conflict_of_interest/Noticeboard/Archive_73#ADC_Bioscientific. And searching the archives I see that it was brought up before that: Wikipedia:Conflict_of_interest/Noticeboard/Archive_54#ADC_Bioscientific. No improvement seems to have resulted from those discussions. I'm not familiar with the topic myself and probably couldn't do a very good job of cleaning these articles up myself, but if you are willing to give it a try I'll back you up however I can. -- Ed (Edgar181) 22:31, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
I just joint wikipedia - i requested the deletion on the Talk page ... Is there something else I need to do? Felim 5 (talk) 12:15, 18 December 2014 (UTC)
Unfortunately deleting an article isn't that simple. There is a process, outlined at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion, but it is unlikely that the article will be deleted because it is a reasonable encyclopedia subject. The promotional nature of the article will more likely need to be fixed through editing or by being rewritten. Even if you are a newly registered user here, you are free to edit and improve the article if would like to. -- Ed (Edgar181) 13:08, 18 December 2014 (UTC)


Thank you for semi protecting those articles and thank you for removing that particularly vile personal attack. Helpsome (talk) 16:02, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

I'm glad to help. If you would like that edit to your talk page hidden (Wikipedia:Revision deletion) please let me know and I'll do it. -- Ed (Edgar181) 16:04, 18 December 2014 (UTC)
If it wouldn't be too much trouble. I don't think I want something like that in the history. Helpsome (talk) 16:05, 18 December 2014 (UTC)
Done. -- Ed (Edgar181) 16:06, 18 December 2014 (UTC)
Thank you! And you now have something you might want to remove from your own history. I reverted it a minute ago. Helpsome (talk) 16:07, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

There is a new one. This threat is bigger. Helpsome (talk) 16:15, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

He's free to remove whatever he wants from his talk page, but he's not free to put his own words in front of my signature. Swpbtalk 20:58, 23 December 2014 (UTC)

I agree, but I think it would help calm him down a bit if it were another editor fixing those edits. I'll keep an eye on his talk page for awhile. -- Ed (Edgar181) 21:01, 23 December 2014 (UTC)

13-Methyltetradecanoic acid[edit]


Thank you for updating and adding necessary information to the article on 13-Methyltetradecanoic acid. Could you instruct me on how to add that "info box" you provided on the right of the page? Also, the underlined title and subtitles look great. I would like to learn how to do that.

I'm glad to help. For some instructions about the basics of Wikipedia editing you may find Wikipedia:Tutorial helpful. For the use of the "Chembox", there are instructions at Template:Chembox. In the future, any time that you are having trouble please let me know and I'll try to help. If you are interested in Wikipedia's chemistry articles, you may want to have a look at Wikipedia:WikiProject Chemistry and Wikipedia:WikiProject Chemicals where some of the chemistry related editing is organized. -- Ed (Edgar181) 12:54, 24 December 2014 (UTC)

Merry Christmas[edit]

MadGuy7023 (talk) 21:11, 24 December 2014 (UTC)


At what point will the block on User:ConteRaff become permanent? The user has been warned repeatedly, and has never made a constructive edit. Swpbtalk 14:04, 29 December 2014 (UTC)

I understand your concern. Maybe I'm being too lenient (wouldn't be the first time), but this comes across as clueless newbie more than anything else to me. I'll keep a watch on him and then next sign of promotion will be an indefinite block. Regards, -- Ed (Edgar181) 14:07, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
