Talk[edit]

Dear Graeme, may we please get (will you help promote) a revision added to the diagram under "Production of Acetaldehyde" on the page of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mercury%28II%29_sulfate that includes the product of methyl mercury and/or all other side products? this will be highly helpfull to know what to expect from that reaction, having learned from the past, (ie: the digram shows the catalyst and acetaldehyde as resultants leaving out the methyl mercury found to be produced as a byproduct {molar by percent compared to expected non production will show how what the plant engineers in japan expected to what is actual, showing the experimental/applied and theoretical relations}). thank you ryan — Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.123.122.58 (talk) 12:38, 13 December 2014 (UTC)

69 You are going to have to give me a reference to base any side reactions on. A catalyst means that it is not consumed. But if say 0.1% turned into methyl mercury, it may still be a functional reaction. Graeme Bartlett (talk) 13:22, 13 December 2014 (UTC)

Salt surface structures[edit]

Hi Graeme, I was wondering when the course related editing of articles such as salt surface structures would be completed, as I'm holding off from making any significant changes until then - thanks. Mikenorton (talk) 08:11, 18 November 2014 (UTC)

As soon as it is in article space it is a free for all. Students were asked to keep the work in sandboxes till last Friday. So you are welcome to start changing it. Graeme Bartlett (talk) 09:35, 18 November 2014 (UTC)
Thanks Graeme. I've raised concerns about possibly copyrighted images on the article talk page and on A.A.Hoffmann's own talk page as he probably hasn't seen the requests for more information on his commons talk page. Mikenorton (talk) 21:16, 18 November 2014 (UTC)

El Clasico[edit]

Hi Graeme. Requesting long term (ie. indefinite) protection of El Clasico article. Reason is simple; having an article of one of the fiercest and most contentious rivalries in world sport unprotected has led to the page being one of the most vandalised on this site, As a fan of neither team I have tried to maintain neutrality but have ended up reverting constant vandalism. I had assumed the page was locked permanently but alas it became unlocked and as usual had to revert more vandalism. Last weeks unofficial referendum in Catalonia that voted for independence is indicative of how contentious this rivalry is thus the repeated vandalism is par for the course in such an article.Carlos Rojas77 (talk) 21:53, 18 November 2014 (UTC)

Protected one year. The best place to ask for this is at WP:RFPP. Graeme Bartlett (talk) 22:25, 18 November 2014 (UTC)

Follow up on El Clasico[edit]

Graeme...issue on the article with an editor, Cid Campeador3, ignoring previous messages sent to him by other users on the issue of content disputes. He was told to request for comment on the dubious sources he continues to add into the article without gaining any consensus on talk. He hasn't asked for any assistance on the issue and ploughs on ahead. I'm neutral on this subject and have removed biased material from the two sets of fans; in this case, Cid Campeador3, a Madrid fan, is giving a Madrid slanted viewpoint on a contentious game (11-1 match in 1943). I'm doing my best to keep the article from being skewed toward either club, and have messaged him that he needs to follow the advice he was given by other editors to gain consensus on talk, go to arbcom if need be, rather than fragrantly ignore other editors and inserting his own viewpoint. Not just that but his English is weak, uses bare URL (and the same one several times over). I dont care what happened just that it is recorded accurately. Trying to maintain the quality of an article is not easy when someone repeatedly ignores standard practice. Your input would be welcomed.Carlos Rojas77 (talk) 02:53, 23 November 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for November 24[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Tectonics of the South China Sea, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Moho. 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.

Something you mentioned in the Persondata RfC[edit]

Hi, back ages ago in this RfC, you mentioned the "AFC reviewer tool". I'm looking to notify them that Persondata is now deprecated (as per this conversation), Could you direct me where I could do that? Or where to start looking? Thanks —Msmarmalade (talk) 00:51, 25 November 2014 (UTC)

Binary compounds of hydrogen[edit]

Are you happy with the changes made to Binary compounds of hydrogen between 24 June 2014 and 5 December 2014? Biscuittin (talk) 17:05, 5 December 2014 (UTC)

How it is now, there is a lack of references. Some sentences are incomplete or misleading. Some substances mentioned are not binary compounds of hydrogen. There are some contradictions. But that is not the changes. When I check the changes they are mostly colour scheme(s). But I will check more. The colour scheme used in the first two periodic tables does not match, this just makes things less clear. What assessed or not-assessed is unexplained on the page. Also there is a lack of units for the enthalpies.

For the changes, which are mainly the intro to the molecular hydrides, there is an improvement, but still a lack of references. The monomeric hydrides have a wrong emphasis now on the most obscure and hard to make ones, whereas the common ones like methane, water and hydrogen chloride are not mentioned. Plasmic has not followed the requirement to include references. THough the material is not controversial, just seriously inbalanced. Graeme Bartlett (talk) 01:17, 6 December 2014 (UTC)

DYK for Titanium in zircon geothermometry[edit]

 — Crisco 1492 (talk) 13:22, 10 December 2014 (UTC)

Hi Graeme[edit]

Hi Graeme, how are you doing? Wanted a clarification. Why did you remove content in this diff and later in fact the article itself as a copyright violation? The author has applied for the auto patrolled status and generally, he looks a brilliant author. Thanks (and good to see you around). Wifione Message 01:47, 11 December 2014 (UTC)

Demiurge1000 had nominated it for speedy deletion as copyright infringement, then I thought that most of the article was good and that the copyright infringing text could be rewritten or chopped. But on checking further the rest of the text was also a copyright violation. The copied text was from http://books.google.ca/books?id=mCHPARZQ0KsC&pg=PA30&lpg=PA30 Industrial Microbiology: An Introduction By Michael J. Waites, Neil L. Morgan, John S. Rockey, Gary Higton. So I cut my effort to rewrite the lot to delete the whole thing. Since this was recent you should check other work if the user appears to be productive. Graeme Bartlett (talk) 03:32, 11 December 2014 (UTC)
Thank you for your briliant comment! Those deleted articles (including the one you deleted) wasn't my recently created articles. It was one of the articles I created at my earliest time on wikipedia when I was not in any way familiar with policies. There were about 4 or 5 of them then that was blatant word-for-word copyvio, and 3 were deleted at AfD on the basis of notability. In fact I even had a competency issues then at ANI and a very big thanks to User:DGG and others who saved me from being blocked then. Over the time I had grown to be a competent wikipedian, who have a core understanding of wikipedia policies with over 50 undeleted articles (not even with any maintenance tag). See them here in order of their creation and you will see that those deleted articles wasn't my recently created articles, over 50 undeleted articles was created thereafter. I had explained this to Wifione. Thanks! Wikicology (talk) 07:16, 11 December 2014 (UTC)
It does look as though a big improvement has happened in the last few months, so it is back to Wifione to conclude on autopatrolled. Graeme Bartlett (talk) 07:32, 11 December 2014 (UTC)
Graeme, the article you deleted was created by Wikicology in September 2014. I've declined his auto patrolled request as of right now. Will advice Wikicology to wait at least six months before considering applying again. Wifione Message 07:37, 11 December 2014 (UTC)

Please remove this page or at least my personal information[edit]

Hello Graeme, I was googling my legal name last night and the first result pops up with an unpublished article from a Japanese search engine. This article contained personal details of mine which the initial contributor did not seek permission from me to post. No wonder I can't get a job. As a fellow Australian, I would really appreciate it if you could permanently delete the sections which state my name and birthdate, or delete the page altogether. The initial contributor has not been active since 2012, doesn't seem like he's coming back anytime soon. The page is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:LukeAnthonyBurger/Stylistics and my latest revision includes all the changes I would like to be permanent (removal of all my personal details). I look forward to your response, Merry Christmas! 01:40, 25 December 2014 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by U3083960 (talkcontribs)

Merry Chrismas U3083960. I doubt that will affect your job prospects, but it has been removed from public view on Wikipedia now by using revison deletion on the text. You can also ask oversight to delete if you need further hiding on Wikipedia. Search engine caches may take a lot longer to update though. Graeme Bartlett (talk) 02:07, 25 December 2014 (UTC)
