Wikipedia:WikiProject Neuroscience[edit]

Hey, I notice you have worked on neuroscience-related articles in the past. I'm reviving the Wikipedia:WikiProject Neuroscience and thought you might care to join. Cheers. Semiconscious (talk · home) 09:12, 29 December 2005 (UTC)

Free will[edit]

Hi Fnielsen, I noticed that you had added a section to the Free will article, quite some time ago (Dec. 28, 2004). The article has come up for FAR and one of the editors specifically commented on the section on Tourette's that you added (it seems like it's gotten wikified a bit since then, but not much else has changed). My PhD is in neurosicence/cognitive science, and I sort of see where you are going there, but I thought that you might want to add, expand, or comment on your addition. I am happy to work with you on this, if you can help us keep Free will as an FA. If you are interested, you can reply either to my talk page, or to the free will talk page. Thanks Edhubbard 11:42, 18 August 2006 (UTC)

Hi Fnielsen, Thanks for your comments on the free will disucssion page. I think I see what you were after with these comments, and I have tried to expand them to clarify my interpretation of your arguments. However, it should be noted that this section, and to a certain extent, the section above on neuroscience and free will, assume a certain viewpoint, namely that the brain creates our sense of free will, and it is only a matter of knowing whether this occurs before, after, or even independently of our actions. This being a philosophy entry, such assumptions are bound to provoke controversy, and perhaps would justify either eliminating or forking some of this more complex (and loaded) material. Let's see what the other editors have to say, and of course, if I've misinterpreted you, please feel free to correct anything that I've added. Edhubbard 00:40, 19 August 2006 (UTC)

Statistics[edit]

Hello. Could you add any new statistics articles that you create to the list of statistical topics?

Escitalopram (Format of cite journal template)[edit]

Hi, whilst there is indeed nothing wrong with your edit, giving full journal names (vs abbrevations) is quite standard in biomedical journals. Indeed the British Medical Journal has formally renamed itself to the abbreviation "BMJ" (see Talk:British Medical Journal) !

Markup was generated through Dibberi's excellent tool http://diberri.dyndns.org/wikipedia/templates/ which takes PMID abstract numbers from PubMed database (or indeed ISBNs for books etc). David Ruben Talk 23:01, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for the link to the Wikipedia template filling web-service. I tend to write full journal name with link to the wikipedia article for the journal. Full journal name seems also to be recommended by Wikipedia:Scientific citation guidelinesfnielsen (talk) 18:21, 30 March 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of International Conference on Machine Learning[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on International Conference on Machine Learning requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for biographies.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. ukexpat (talk) 15:20, 16 January 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Mutation Research[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Mutation Research requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be a blatant copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words.

If the external website belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must include on the external site the statement "I, (name), am the author of this article, (article name), and I release its content under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.2 and later." You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Mutation Research[edit]

Nuvola apps important yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Mutation Research, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page. Also, please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. If you agree with the deletion of the article, and you are the only person who has made substantial edits to the page, please add {{db-author}} to the top of Mutation Research. The Evil Spartan (talk) 06:06, 12 March 2008 (UTC)

I have extended the article a bit and removed the deletion tag. — fnielsen (talk) 15:20, 12 March 2008 (UTC)

Citation => cite journal[edit]

Why change the citation templates on Henrik Svensmark to cite journal? As far as i can see the Citation template is superior, since it understands the difference between a link to the article where its located, and a link to another article. This means that you don't have to change the format of (or add) author-link, when you copy a citation to another article. Is there a MoS guideline that i'm not aware of? --Kim D. Petersen (talk) 20:54, 17 March 2008 (UTC)

I not sure what you mean. I link to its own page will result in a bold. I don't think it is a property of the template — fnielsen (talk) 23:44, 17 March 2008 (UTC)
Ah! You are right. Sorry - i thought it was a feature of the template. Ok, no objections anymore. Even though i like the Citation template better for its features - but now its pure personal preferences ;-) --Kim D. Petersen (talk) 01:07, 18 March 2008 (UTC)

Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the article does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that a copy be emailed to you. Vianello (talk) 10:08, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

I extended the article a bit and argued for him on the talk page, so now he seems to be ok. — fnielsen (talk) 18:39, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

SNPs - going too far?[edit]

I notice you created {{Infobox Single nucleotide polymorphism}} and a raft of articles using it. I have great difficulty imagining the need for articles on every known SNP in a general purpose encyclopedia. I was hoping you could comment on this. JFW | T@lk 17:34, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

There are already thousands of pages on individual genes. One of the SNPs that I have added (Arg506Gln) are mentioned in close to thousand articles according to Google Scholar [1]. Personal genomics and personalized medicine make it very likely that not just genetics researchers want to look up information about individual SNPs, but patients and "normals" would expect SNP information to be available in a general purpose encyclopedia. — fnielsen (talk) 18:37, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of "SNPedia"[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A page you created, SNPedia, has been tagged for deletion, as it meets one or more of the criteria for speedy deletion; specifically, it has no content, other than external links, categories, "see also" sections, rephrasing of the title, and/or chat-like comments.

You are welcome to contribute content which complies with our content policies and any applicable inclusion guidelines. However, please do not simply re-create the page with the same content. You may also wish to read our introduction to editing and guide to writing your first article.

Thanks. Blanchardb-MeMyEarsMyMouth-timed 16:05, 19 July 2008 (UTC)

SNPedia[edit]

The original rationale for deletion was that the article did not mention why this site is important. See Wikipedia's notability guidelines for web sites. That should be your priority, rather than restoring your previous edits. The current article is even less informative: it only contains the site's name. --Blanchardb-MeMyEarsMyMouth-timed 16:27, 19 July 2008 (UTC)

"it only contains the site's name": Yes, of course! It was so that I could write on the dicussion page, and explain the reason for that it should be reestablished. And wow now that is gone too! I did source the website with a reference to the well-known journal Science which reported on the SNPedia web-site [2]. A further source is [3]fnielsen (talk) 16:45, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

causes of schizophrenia personality section[edit]

Hi, I've had a go at making the personality section more relevant by explicitly calling it causes of delusions the first section on HVA refers to schizophrenia itself. I'll take the tag off, but won't be offended if you delete or whatever. Notpayingthepsychiatrist (talk) 10:46, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

Ok, (regarding version [4] of Causes of schizophrenia) I let you work on it. Here are some suggestions: A bit more context. Are the study presented general oppinions or statements from individual researchers? Formating of reference and punctuation marks. Why are delusion in PD interesting for schizophrenia? The Gender Identity Disorder delusion is just a single unusual case and can hardly be called on to confirm anything. — fnielsen (talk) 11:33, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

Determining the number of clusters[edit]

I wanted to give you a heads up on this before continuing since you went to the trouble of attempting to bring the section into the realm of reality.

The issue that remains is this diagram is not used for clusters, which are merely the groupings of elements for each cluster produced by expanding the subset into a multiset.

What K stands is the number of attributes in the subset. The way it is determined with modern computers is by fist setting it to one and doing a multiset count for each attributes, then proceeding to sort attributes in descending order, increase K to a value of 2 and find the multiset for  V^K for each remaining attribute in the group, sorting again, increasing the value of K again and so on until 100% separation is achieved or a time limit expires or computing capacity is exceeded.

"Elements, attributes, subsets, multisets and clusters."


Optimal Classification —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.100.3.239 (talk) 18:33, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

71.100.*.*[edit]

Hi Finn - 71.100.*.* has a history of creating original research articles such as Articles for deletion/Rapid sort and Articles for deletion/Optimal classification. This is just his perverted way of trying to get his articles back to Wikipedia. Ignore everything he says, and contact the appropriate parties if personal attacks gets too much (see Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/IncidentArchive459#User:Julie Dancer, repeated personal attack and harrassment and Requests for checkuser/Case/Julie Dancer) --Jiuguang (talk) 13:24, 15 September 2008 (UTC)

Molecular Psychiatry[edit]

Hi, thanks for creating an article on this important journal. However, the way it currently stands, it is so brief that it risks being proposed for deletion. Please expand it (see Genes, Brain and Behavior for a journal article that I created myself and which may serve as a template). Happy editing! --Crusio (talk) 21:18, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

Alas, those deletionists! Yes Genes, Brain and Behavior is indeed better. — fnielsen (talk) 21:30, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

Citation templates[edit]

Hi, Fnielsen. I've come across some articles you've cited, and it appears that you haven't discovered Diberri's PMID template filler. All you have to do is input the PMID and it returns a complete cite journal template, which will be consistent with citation widely used across all bio/med articles. See:

I also noticed you're redlinking authors, which is a lot of unnecessary work, since not all of them will be notable.

Regards, SandyGeorgia (Talk) 04:27, 6 October 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for the information: I wasn't aware of the Signport article. I am aware of Diberri's tool. I have my own template filler that consistently formats from a PMID [5]. The author links are made automatically, so it is really not "a lot of unnecessary work". I do not think that authors are generally not notable, but I guess that some Wikipedia editors dislike redlinks. — fnielsen (talk) 09:35, 6 October 2008 (UTC)

Redlinks[edit]

Hi there. The rule of thumb is that you should only add a link to a person who either has an article already or who might get an article in the future. Please feel free to replace links that you feel fit that criteria, but you readers are not helped by linking every name in an article. Tim Vickers (talk) 16:22, 6 October 2008 (UTC)

latent class analysis[edit]

hi Fnielsen, question: can you review the mathematical aspects of a latent class analysis-remake or is it impossible?, best regards --Jan eissfeldt (talk) 00:39, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

I can try, I have not work excessively with the LCM. I have only programmed the non-negative matrix factorization algorithms of Lee-Seung. Which kind of remake is it? — fnielsen (talk) 09:59, 28 October 2008 (UTC)
i´ ll arrange a articlereorganisation including sociological aspects and mathematical basics with Fossa. i give you sufficient notice :), best regards from germany --Jan eissfeldt (talk) 12:36, 28 October 2008 (UTC)
Neither did I, it's just my shtick w/ respect to quantitative methods. I have published a couple of articles drawing on LCA, nobody complained about the methodology, just about the theory, that's why I'm interested in some experts, who would be able to criticize my use of LCA. Fossa?! 01:16, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
PS: As a bonus: I have lived on Søborg Hovedgade once for 3 months, if that helps. I am very anti-Danish, though, spent too much time in Aarhus. Fossa?! 01:20, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
What's happening here? Are we gonna do it? Fossa?! 00:14, 4 December 2008 (UTC)

Hej![edit]

Jeg kan se at du er aktiv på den engelske Wikipedia, og at du er fra Danmark. I skrivende stund, diskuterer vi på landsbybrønden et nyt forslag, om at starte en national afdeling, der vil blive kaldet Wikimedia Danmark. Hvis du er interesseret i at bidrage med noget tid til at få startet afdelingen, kan du skrive dit navn på denne side hos meta. Tak for din tid! Mike H. Fierce! 06:06, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

Invitation[edit]

Eftersom du har givet dit navn til Wikimedia Danmark, er du hermed inviteret til den første generalforsamling. På dette møde vil vi ratificere vores vedtægter (som findes i kladde på dansk og engelsk på meta). Startende ved dette møde og efterfølgende møder, vil vi annoncere mødested og tidspunkt én måned i forvejen.

Nice 400,000 years ago![edit]

You had added a line saying there were settlements in Nice 400,000 years ago. This was recently removed by an anon user which I have reverted. From where did you get the number 400,000? I could not find it in Terra Amata. Jay (talk) 11:39, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

  • I do not recall the source, perhaps a museum in Nice. But then you cannot trust museum material… :) I have found a source that says 230,000±40,000 for some flint findings [6]. — fnielsen (talk) 16:13, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
  • I have found a source and added it to Nice. It is on the homepage of the Terra Amata museum (if I understand the French correct): On en trouve des traces sur la plage de Terra Amata à Nice, datée de - 400 000 ans. [7]. I does tell me where they got the information from. — fnielsen (talk) 16:44, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

Oo7565 (talk) 17:21, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

  • It seems that you, Oo7565, is too much of a deletionist. Scientific journals of this standing are almost always deemed notable. That it is a stub is only a question of "sofixit". — fnielsen (talk) 10:22, 20 April 2009 (UTC)
Actually, we do not usually have articles on individual sections of journals. What I did was to move it to American Journal of Human Genetics, and revised the content to match. You might want to expand it, with the usual material on editors in chief and years of publication, and indexing services, and impact factor, and so forth. DGG (talk) 00:32, 21 April 2009 (UTC)
  • It is sometimes difficult to determine what a journal "is". Part B and Part C of American Journal of Medical Genetics has different ISSN. — fnielsen (talk) 22:55, 21 April 2009 (UTC)
and so do the print and electronic. ISSN is not definitive. We have a difficult enough job getting people to accept all journals without splitting the parts DGG (talk) 19:24, 23 April 2009 (UTC)
  • So your opinion is that it is one journal? I can see that it might make more sense to view the as one journal when putting them on a library shelf, but I think it make some sense to split them: They have different editorial boards, different URL, different scope. The Infobox Journal template works best if they are separate. — fnielsen (talk) 09:12, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

re new section, "Other cases", added to Phineas Gage article -- appropriate?[edit]

I'd like to suggest that this material (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Phineas_Gage&diff=284998626&oldid=284879308), which you added recently, be moved elsewhere. There are many stories like this, especially from the last 20 years, and the Phineas Gage article seems to me not the place to cover them (or even to link to coverage of them elsewhere) unless they have particular relevance to Gage. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Garrondo and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Delldot have an interest in brain injuries and might have suggestions for a new home for this material. Please respond here. EEng (talk) 14:36, 20 April 2009 (UTC)

Danish journal list[edit]

Hi Finn,

Thank you for mentioning the Danish journal list on Excellence in Research for Australia. I am interested in learning more about it. I have moved the information about the Danish journal list to Lists of journals, and uploaded the list of journals to Wikipedia:WikiProject Academic Journals/Danish journal list.

The Danish and Australian lists are currently being discussing at Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Academic_Journals#J._Lit._Th.

Also, given your interest in citations on Wikipedia, you may be interested in Wikipedia:WikiProject Academic Journals/Journals cited by Wikipedia, discussed here.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Kurt Goldstein, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page University of Frankfurt (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.

October 2012[edit]

Hello Fnielsen. You tagged a page for speedy deletion, but you did not notify the article's creator that it had been so tagged. There is strong consensus that the creators of articles tagged for speedy deletion should be warned and that the person placing the tag has that responsibility. All of the major speedy deletion templates contain a pre-formatted warning for this purpose—just copy and paste to the creator's talk page. Thank you. --v/r Electric Catfish (talk) 16:46, 4 October 2012 (UTC)

Ok, but have you seen the page? It consists of "ha ha ah ah ha h ... :P :P :P :P" so surely it should be deleted. I have put in the template on the user talk page now. — fnielsen (talk) 16:56, 4 October 2012 (UTC)
I saw the page and it should be deleted, either as a G1 or as a G2. I recommend using Twinkle or Page Curation for new page patrol (I use Twinkle), and both of these automatically notify the author for you. --v/r Electric Catfish (talk) 18:22, 4 October 2012 (UTC)

Hoaxes[edit]

Thanks for your note. Very edifying list. I was actually thinking of hoaxes that haven't been caught, but that list shows how many there have been over the years. It's sobering. Coretheapple (talk) 15:11, 4 January 2013 (UTC)

QGIS[edit]

Hi! I am currently on a quest to bring information about open source mapping to the world. I was wondering if you could translate the QGIS page into Danish if you ever have the time. I just did the one in Dutch nl:QGIS, but that is the only language left that I still feel confident to write in. --Tobias1984 (talk) 11:42, 27 February 2014 (UTC)
