Disambiguation link notification for February 6[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Capybara, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Mara (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.

Yes, page is Mara (mammal);" the disambiguation page is "A long page"!

Microorganism[edit]

Hi Iztwoz. Please exercise due caution and diligence before removing a reliable source. You recently removed a reliable source from Microorganism on the grounds that there was another source which was "more easily accessed". That is not an acceptable reason for removing a reliable source. In addition, a quick search on the article's title in Google Scholar showed a full view of the article you removed was accessible online. Regards. --Epipelagic (talk) 20:44, 5 March 2013 (UTC)

Typos[edit]

Hi. I've reverted your recent edits to the Mahabharata article, in which the only reason given was 'typos'. What you changed were not typo's but use of IAST, which is common through the article. Policy on this has never been agreed and there is very good reason for some usage in this article. Some articles such as Pāṇini are named in this format. I note that you have made similar changes elsewhere where IAST is used. Please consider carefully if it is appropriate to make such changes. Thanks. Imc (talk) 06:28, 15 April 2013 (UTC)

Hi Iztwoz!

Hyper-debit is the situation were there is an augmentation of the debit in one vein. An exemple of hyper-debit is the presence of an arterio-venous fistula. Another example is in a situation of deep venous thrombosis: the superficial venous system is called to drain much more blood than usually - veins can be enlarged but valves can be intact. Eye image or eye sign is the same thing. We can use "eye sign" as it is on papers. Thank you again Doc Elisa 20:37, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

Howdy! Found you listed as a potential volunteer for science / biology related topics - If you have a moment, I'd like to get some more eyes looking at the peer review of Sex effects of water pollution, it appears to be a bit quackery/bias-heavy, but I don't know if it qualifies for deletion outright because of that...

Allow Me[edit]

Apologies if I caused any edit conflicts during your copy edit. I had forgotten about my outstanding request for the copy edit, since the article had already undergone the Good article nomination process. (I work on so many articles at once, I forgot!) I am so glad to have you working on the article, and I will wait until you have finished to see all of your edits and ask any questions I may have. I did remove "very" (which you added) from the lead, referring to the reception, and I also removed the comma before "Public Art Collection" since the source did not include the punctuation (and the lead became inconsistent with the infobox). Let me know your thoughts! Thanks for your contributions to the article. --Another Believer (Talk) 20:38, 30 May 2013 (UTC)

If you'll let me know when you are finished, I will be sure to add the GOCE template to the article's talk page. Thanks again! --Another Believer (Talk) 22:40, 30 May 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Germinal stage[edit]

Hello Iztwoz,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Germinal stage for deletion, because it appears to duplicate an existing Wikipedia article, Human embryogenesis.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

Welcome to Wikipedia from the Anatomy Wikiproject![edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia from Wikiproject Anatomy! We're a group of editors who strive to improve the quality of anatomy articles here on Wikipedia. One of our members has noticed that you are interested in editing anatomy articles; it's great to have a new interested editor on board. In your wiki-voyages, a few things that may be relevant to editing wikipedia articles are:

Sobo 1909 589.png
  • Thanks for coming aboard! We always appreciate a new editor. Feel free to leave us a message at any time on the WikiProkect Anatomy talk page. If you are interested in joining the project yourself, there is a participant list where you can sign up. Please leave a message on the talk page if you have any problems, suggestions, would like review of an article, need suggestions for articles to edit, or would like some collaboration when editing!
  • You will make a big difference to the quality of information by adding reliable sources. Sourcing anatomy articles is essential and makes a big difference to the quality of articles. And, while you're at it, why not use a book to source information, which can source multiple articles at once!
  • We try and use a standard way of arranging the content in each article. That layout is here. These headings let us have a standard way of presenting the information in anatomical articles, indicate what information may have been forgotten, and save angst when trying to decide how to organise an article.
  • Lastly, why not try and strive to create a good article! Anatomical articles are often small in scope, have available sources, and only a limited amount of research available that is readily presentable!

Feel free to contact us on the WikiProkect Anatomy talk page if you have any problems, or wish to join us. I wish you all the best on your wiki-voyages!--LT910001 (talk) 12:09, 29 December 2013 (UTC)

Cervix[edit]

Hi Iztwoz! I'm working on getting Cervix up to GA-status, but I'm having a bit of trouble and was wondering if a second pair of eyes could help. I've inherited the Function section and I'm not quite happy with how it looks, but I'm really not sure what to do with it. I was wondering, if you had time, whether you could cast your eyes over that section (and maybe the rest of the article if you had time) and give it a bit of a run-over? I more-or-less think that the formatting is quite strange, but am not sure where to go. I'd be very grateful, editing can get somewhat lonely sometimes! --LT910001 (talk) 00:02, 11 March 2014 (UTC)

Digestive system (human)[edit]

Human gastrointestinal tract seems to cover that exact topic area, you know... Dolescum (talk) 16:25, 13 March 2014 (UTC)

There are in the Digestion article's section on human digestion, though. Dolescum (talk) 16:41, 13 March 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for pointing this out, Dolescum. I've started a discussion on this at WP:ANATOMY, here: Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Anatomy#Organization_of_Gastrointestinal_tract_articles. I personally feel we need a Human digestive system and Gastrointestinal tract article, as we do have articles on other systems. One solution might be to move some of the content from Digestion to Digestive system. Anyhow, please feel free to discuss this at the link above - hopefully we can centralise the discussion about this there. --LT910001 (talk) 08:14, 14 March 2014 (UTC)

A-ha! A new venture?[edit]

Thoracic diaphragm. Eep! Such an important structure for life, and yet such a poor article! Also one of our top 200 articles (always nice to know), and I think this article could be improved without much intense research. Also, I see you've been working hard on Human digestive system, and it's looking great. One things is that when you cite something, you need to note what part of the book you used, and the date of access of a website. That way if another editor wanted to check (theoretically), they wouldn't have to look through a whole book. To make citing easier, you can use the "Cite" button visible on the editor. For journal articles and books, it'll automatically fill out the information. --LT910001 (talk) 04:41, 27 March 2014 (UTC)

WikiProject Anatomy quarterly newsletter[edit]

WP:Anatomy quarterly update (#2)

Previous edition
Released: First quarter, 2014
Editor: LT910001

Hello WP:ANATOMY participant! This is the second quarterly update of goings-on in WP:ANATOMY, documenting the current state of WP:ANATOMY, current projects and items of interest, and any relevant news. I'd greatly value feedback on this, and if you think I've missed something, or don't wish to receive this again, please leave a note on my talkpage or remove your name from the mailing list

What's new
What's going on
How can I contribute?
  • Reword anatomical jargon: jargon is widespread and not helpful to lay readers.
  • Contribute on our talk page
  • Continue to add sources, content, and improve anatomical articles!
  • Replace images with better images from Wikipedia commons, or if there are too many images, remove some low-quality ones
Quarterly focus - Where to edit?
One of our two new featured images! (Also featured on the Signpost)

On any given week we have at least 4-10 editors making significant contributions to our articles, with probably more than double this making minor edits. As an editor, I am often wondering: with so many articles, where to start? There is so much to be done (as always, on Wikipedia!), and I aim here to provide a comprehensive list of venues within our project. If I've missed any, please let us know on the WikiProject Anatomy talk page.

An editor might edit:

  • By importance. A user can use our assessment table to view articles by their importance and class. The vital articles project provides a list of designated 'Vital articles' for Wikipedia.
  • By popularity. One way to edit is to edit the most popular pages -- the majority of these need help, and editing is sure to bring benefit to many users.
  • By need. There is always cleanup that needs to be done, whether commenting on mergers, adding infoboxes or adding images.
  • By interest. A series of inter-project categories has been developed to help facilitate inter-Wiki and inter-professional collaboration. These categories sort our articles into organs, system, gross anatomy, neuroanatomy, and several other categories. This should offer a buffet of articles for any interested editors! See here for more details.
  • By topic. Wikipedia's anatomical categories may provide impetus, as may editing a suite of related-articles, using a parent article such as ear for direction. A collection of series are slowly being rolled-out, including one for epithelia and for articles about the gastrointestinal wall, which also act as groups of topics. Templates, as documented on our main page, provide a similar categorisation.
  • By demand. Discussions relating to Anatomy are frequent occurrences on the talk pages for WPMED and WP:ANATOMY. Such topics almost always cry out for more editing.
  • By recent changes. One way to choose a destination for editing is to check the recent changes, revert vandalism, integrate/source edits, or generally collaborate in improving articles that are receiving contributions from other editors. This can be found in the external watchlist, or the (recent contributions for Index of Anatomy), a relatively comprehensive on-wiki list.
  • By chance. A user is always welcome to improve articles that they randomly 'bump into' by Wiki-surfing or by having bumped for other reasons into a particular article or topic that needs improvement

Mergers[edit]

Thanks a lot for helping with the mergers! I personally feel there are many benefits to mergers where consensus exists, so thanks for pushing some of these along, and doing it so thoroughly! When you're performing the merge on the page, remember to replace all the text on the merged page with the redirect and an {{R from merge}} tag (see WP:MERGE), that way we won't have future editors accidentally editing the merged pages. --LT910001 (talk) 00:41, 2 April 2014 (UTC)

Hello again Iztwoz! Thank you for systematically working through the list of mergers. I reverted your merge of Nasopharynx. I try and work cooperatively with other editors, so if someone objects to a merge I will either leave it for consensus (there is no rush), or if that doesn't appear forthcoming after a few months, remove the merge tags with no consensus. Unfortunately, I don't think it's fair on the WP Community to go about performing mergers when, excluding the proposer, the commenters are split on the merge. At any rate, there is so much that needs doing that a merge not performed can be quickly forgotten, even if it is something I personally think would benefit the encyclopedia =P. I hope you are well, --LT910001 (talk) 22:16, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

Operculum[edit]

Thanks for that. I've read authors using "operculum" for the whole bit of cortex covering the insula, and "parietal operculum", "frontal operculum", etc. for the different bits, and I tried to retain it ... but it's clumsy expression, and I'm quite happy to leave it out. Thanks for all your efforts in anatomy here. --Anthonyhcole (talk · contribs · email) 17:33, 14 April 2014 (UTC)

And that. --Anthonyhcole (talk · contribs · email) 19:03, 18 April 2014 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Myotome (anatomy)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Myotome (anatomy) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

This seems to be a dictionary definition only. Is there anything more to say about the subject? If not, it has no place in an encyclopedia.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

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.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. PamD 23:34, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

Hello PamD the page was made simply to disambiguate from myotome (embryology) it might be able to be redirected somewhere instead - I shall have a look. Iztwoz (talk) 06:53, 20 April 2014 (UTC)
I see that another member of the Anatomy Wikiproject has merged the two topics. I'll leave it to you lot now - but please remember not to make page moves without following implications such as incoming links. PamD 07:15, 20 April 2014 (UTC)

Myotome (disambiguation) links to two pages that redirect to the same page, Myotome. Unless these two pages are made different, the disambiguation page should be deleted. —Anomalocaris (talk) 09:38, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

Invitation join the new Physiology Wikiproject![edit]

Physiology gives us an understanding of how and why things in the field of medicine happen. Together, let us jumpstart the project and get it going. Our energy is all it needs.

Based on the long felt gap for categorization and improvization of WP:MED articles relating to the field of physiology, the new WikiProject Physiology has been created. WikiProject Physiology is still in its infancy and needs your help. On behalf of a group of editors striving to improve the quality of physiology articles here on Wikipedia, I would like to invite you to come on board and participate in the betterment of physiology related articles. Help us to jumpstart this WikiProject.

  • Feel free to leave us a message at any time on the WikiProkect Physiology talk page. If you are interested in joining the project yourself, there is a participant list where you can sign up. Please leave a message on the talk page if you have any problems, suggestions, would like review of an article, need suggestions for articles to edit, or would like some collaboration when editing!
  • You can tag the talk pages of relevant articles with {{WikiProject Physiology|class=|importance=}} with your assessment of the article class and importance alongwith. Please note that WP:Physiology, WP:Physio, WP:Phy can be used interchangeably.
  • You will make a big difference to the quality of information by adding reliable sources. Sourcing physiology articles is essential and makes a big difference to the quality of articles. And, while you're at it, why not use a book to source information, which can source multiple articles at once!
  • We try and use a standard way of arranging the content in each article. That layout is here. These headings let us have a standard way of presenting the information in anatomical articles, indicate what information may have been forgotten, and save angst when trying to decide how to organise an article. That said, this might not suit every article. If in doubt, be bold!
  • Why not try and strive to create a good article! Physiology related articles are often small in scope, have available sources, and only a limited amount of research available that is readily presentable!
  • Your contributions to the WikiProject page, related categories and templates is also welcome.
  • To invite other editors to this WikiProject, copy and past this template (with the signature):
  • To welcome editors of physiology articles, copy and past this template (with the signature):

Etymology[edit]

Hi Iztwoz. this edit was contrary to policy. Wikipedia articles are about things, not generally about words. The proper subject of the Embolism article is embolisms themselves, not the word embolism. A properly written Wikipedia article does not begin with a lead sentence of the form "In x, y refers to...", but rather a sentence of the form "In x, a y is...". The etymology of the article title is not relevant to the topic of the article. In most cases, etymology should not be included at all. Where it is appropriate, it rarely belongs in the lead section, and never belongs in the lead sentence. The lead sentence of an article is crucial: it must clearly state and/or explain the topic of the article. Introducing irrelevant material like the etymology of the article title breaks up this crucial sentence and distracts from the information that is actually important.

This is a common mistake, because people are used to dictionaries, which put the etymology first, before the definition of the word. This style is not appropriate for Wikipedia, and is contrary to the policy.--Srleffler (talk) 01:19, 27 May 2014 (UTC)

Hi Srleffler Firstly I didn't write the article - I was just replacing something that you had removed. I agreed with your removal of the inclusion of the plural. However, I think you are mistaken in your interpretation of policy. WP is not a dictionary means that a page created needs to be more than just a definition which a lot of entries are. You tell me that the style is not appropriate for Wikipedia - then why is this same format been accepted for nine out of ten articles I've had a quick look at including featured articles - Hippocampus and Cerebellum see also, homeostasis, tetrapod, amphibian, cortex, cenozoic, thoracic diaphragm.............Iztwoz (talk) 13:18, 27 May 2014 (UTC)
Take a look at the first row in the table at Wikipedia:Wikipedia is not a dictionary#Major differences. It is explicit about what is and is not the proper focus of a Wikipedia article. Further down in the policy there is a discussion on the form of the first sentence, regarding "refers to" vs. "is". As I mentioned, this is a common error. You can find many articles with this problem, waiting to be fixed.--Srleffler (talk) 05:38, 28 May 2014 (UTC)
Srleffler Personally I appreciate the translation of the word where appropriate; it would seem from the number of entries that incorporate this including featured articles - that it is also appreciated by the majority. I would point you to WP:Basic copyediting - Etiquette section which suggests that if you want to dispute an edit you take it to the talk page for open discussion. As regards the change from refers to, to is, I agree totally, I never made anything of this. Thank you Iztwoz (talk) 16:04, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

Sebaceous gland[edit]

I've never done a GA review before. I tried to do the right thing, and get someone to help, but that isn't going as quickly as I had hoped. I am aware of the general criteria, and haven't formally applied those yet - I decided to review the prose and anything else that jumped out at me. I will address the other issues soon, but I wanted to get started. I want to check refs, and have a request in for JStor access, not sure how long that will take.--S Philbrick(Talk) 18:19, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

Your GA nomination of Sebaceous gland[edit]

Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments you might have during this period. Message delivered by Legobot, on behalf of Sphilbrick -- Sphilbrick (talk) 18:20, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

I see that you've begun addressing some of my observations and comments. Please be aware that this is my first GA review, so I am still learning how to do it. I know I need to go through the formal list, but wanted to do so after seeing how you responded to my initial comments. That went well, if the green checks are any indication.
I need to address two other meta-issues:
  1. I've applied for JStor access, but that process appears to be glacial. My plan was to look at each of the sources to confirm that they support the text. I can do some, but some are not available to me. I guess I can check with someone who has JStor access, but I assume you have access to all the articles. I'm not thinking I will identify some I would like to look at, and ask you or find someone with access.
  2. I requested a mentor ten days ago, and so far, crickets. I'd really like to have someone more experienced make sure I am doing this correctly. Asking the correct way failed, I'll try plan B, as soon as I figure out Plan B.
I have a vague recollection that the structure of Sebaceous gland was similar to another article, which is a GA. If you know which one, I could track down who did the GA review, and they may be willing to check my work.--S Philbrick(Talk) 00:10, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
I thought this article which you included as reference was fascinating. There were some things in that source that I thought would be a good addition to the article. I am mentioning them here, rather than the GA review because I think they are nice to have as opposed to required for GA.
The notion that a sweat drop which falls off the body is a waste is something that makes sense when you read it, but had never occurred to me. The function of sebum in reducing the loss of sweat drops is quite interesting in general, and as an evolutionary factor. That sebum can simultaneously help when it is hot (keeping sweat drops form falling off) and cold (to repel rain) is also quite an accomplishment.
Again, feel free to add it if you choose, but do not feel that it is a requirement for GA.
I'm almost done the GA review. I'm asking one other experienced editor to take a look.--S Philbrick(Talk) 15:26, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
