NOTE: I am currently semi-retired from Wiki. The constant battling against the woeful US bias, on individual topics, ITN (very bad here!) and in the ridiculous language policy (which basically boils down to as much as possible in American 'English', whether it makes sense or not) have finally gotten to me. Congrats, Yanks, you've won. Fgf10 (talk) 08:13, 29 May 2014 (UTC)

Username[edit]

Hi, Fgf10, are you familiar with FGF10? You might wish to change your username. Lotje (talk) 12:39, 17 January 2013 (UTC)

I spent my PhD working on it, so yeah I'm, slightly familiar with it. Fgf10 is the gene, FGF10 is the protein. But cheers anyway! Fgf10 (talk) 12:57, 17 January 2013 (UTC)

Actually, cheers as well for reminding me that needs a major rewrite and overhaul. Very disappointing article at the moment. Fgf10 (talk) 14:43, 17 January 2013 (UTC)

ITN[edit]

Hi, on the assumption you are looking for a good faith solution, I have removed the references to the US (not the whole comment) as mine comment has been removed. I also hatted the side discussion. diff. If you want to redact any of my comments within the hatting feel free. μηδείς (talk) 00:44, 17 September 2013 (UTC)

Sorry, only just logged in again. Thanks for the mature solution in the end! Guessing emotions got the better of you? Agree to disagree, I guess Fgf10 (talk) 15:15, 18 September 2013 (UTC)

STAP cells[edit]

Could you take another looks at the STAP cell ITN? At current, the only thing keeping it from being posted is deciding on a blurb. I proposed an altblurb, let me know what you think. --ThaddeusB (talk) 16:02, 2 February 2014 (UTC)

ITN[edit]

I'm not sure why you keep putting my comment ahead of yours? Comments like that should be ordered in order of when they were posted - you're just making it look like I posted after you did. Redverton (talk) 17:28, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

Ah, I'm not, for some reason it keeps coming out in the wrong order! Very confusing! Fgf10 (talk) 07:44, 10 April 2014 (UTC)
Fair enough, thanks for reply. Redverton (talk) 19:46, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

The Boat Race nomination at WP:ITN/R[edit]

Since you participated in the nomination of The 160th Boat Race at WP:ITNC, I am writing to let you know that you might like to participate in the following discussion at WP:ITN/R. 86.170.98.9 (talk) 23:39, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

Signbot on the Ref Desk[edit]

Regarding your comment about this edit to the Misc. Ref Desk. I think that Medeis avoided the Signbot by putting in 5 tildes instead of 4. Five produces just the time without a username. They were probably so riled by my comment that they put in one too many tildes and Signbot probably just looks to see if there's a time stamp without verifying that a username is before it.

Note[edit]

If you post something on my archive page, I'm not likely to see it anytime soon. In any case, it is VW that has a vendetta against me, for reasons I don't understand, probably because I'm an idiot or something. ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 18:38, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

Honestly User:Baseball_Bugs, can you tell me how it is, according to you, VW has a vendetta against you? For calling you out on posting incorrect things to the Refdesk? Your behaviour is getting more and more like Medeis every day, and that's most certainly not a good thing. Fgf10 (talk) 18:42, 28 May 2014 (UTC)
I once asked him why he doesn't come to my talk page, and he said it was better to show me up in front of the OP. Now tell me why I should respect someone with that attitude. ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 19:42, 28 May 2014 (UTC)
He's right to be honest. I can't remember the last time you contributed something of any use to the Refdesk. Fgf10 (talk) 20:47, 28 May 2014 (UTC)
Then you're not paying attention. ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 20:52, 28 May 2014 (UTC)
Hehe, oh, you're priceless. Thank you for the entertainment, always good to get a giggle out of this place. :) Fgf10 (talk) 20:54, 28 May 2014 (UTC)
Glad to be of service, any time. :) ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 22:45, 28 May 2014 (UTC)
I was being sarcastic. People like you have no place on the Refdesk. Fgf10 (talk) 07:31, 29 May 2014 (UTC)
