Hey Jennifer,

I'm Rasha, and I'm also a part of Dr. Ogg's Mol Bio class. I just wanted to say hi, and get more used to the Wikipedia mode of communication! It's nice to see you here as well! :) Rashaalam (talk) 23:39, 19 September 2012 (UTC)

Nice user page![edit]

Very impressive! Klortho (talk) 12:48, 25 September 2012 (UTC)

Thanks! I'm enjoying playing around with the different options and layouts - stole the photo border from your page!! ;) Jennifergr (talk) 14:21, 25 September 2012 (UTC)


Hi Jennifer,

I agree with Klortho that your user page is impressive! Mine definitely pales in comparison :)!

Thanks, Monica!! I've been having a fun time testing out some of the different ways to display information on here ;) Jennifergr (talk) 14:38, 25 September 2012 (UTC)

I love your page![edit]

Hey Jennifer,

I have to say I really love the way you've outlined your page! I might steal the idea haha! I never know what to do with my own pages/profiles but I might add the "What I Watch" section, that's always fun! :) Rashaalam (talk) 17:40, 25 September 2012 (UTC)

Thanks Rasha! Steal all you want ;) When you think of all the topics you can come up with using Wikipedia links, the options are endless! Jennifergr (talk) 21:11, 26 September 2012 (UTC)
Eh I'm still trying to get used to it all! So far, these talk pages are all I have down confidently haha! Need to pull out some time to play around with the rest of Wikipedia :) Thanks! Rashaalam (talk) 21:23, 26 September 2012 (UTC)

Hey Jennifer![edit]

I am completely impressed by your page! How did you do it? Rachael Meskowitz 13:04, 28 September 2012 (UTC)Rachael Meskowitz — Preceding unsigned comment added by Rmeskowitz22 (talkcontribs)

Thanks Rachel! I used other user pages and went into "edit" to see what codes they were using for various elements - it took a little bit of playing around to get it to layout nicely, but a fun way to learn about the layouts here on Wikipedia! Jennifergr (talk) 11:44, 8 October 2012 (UTC)

References at Radiologists Without Borders[edit]

Without references, no chance. See WP:RS and look for refs that meet that policy. If the article goes, still find the refs and ask an admin (such as me) if they are good enough, and if they are, if the admin will restore the article into your userspace for more work. Peridon (talk) 22:10, 14 December 2012 (UTC)

I have references from outside sources (i.e. which I have not yet published as I am currently working on this article, although over 90% of the Doctors without Borders/MSF references are from their own website, so I would assume that would valid to earn a reference title as well?Jennifergr (talk) 22:19, 14 December 2012 (UTC)
Peridon, why don't you restore the article to her userspace as a default action? She is pretty new, and clearly has an interest in working on it. (See WP:DNB). Klortho (talk) 22:37, 14 December 2012 (UTC)
Waited to see if it survived (and went to bed for an early morning start). Stuff moved into userspace doesn't always get worked on. It has survived, and if anything happens later, she knows I'll restore it on request. Peridon (talk) 20:44, 15 December 2012 (UTC)

status and aadvice[edit]

As reviewing administrator, I looked at the article, and the references indicate possible importance enough that the article will not be speedy deleted. Therefore, I didn't delete it--you can go right ahead and work on it.

More is needed. You can use material from their own site to explain the facts of what they do. Use the information you have about the organization to expand on the number of participants, the number of missions and people served, the organizational affiliations.

But a WP article needs to show what we call "notability" by having references providing substantial coverage from 3rd party independent published reliable sources, print or online, but not blogs or press releases, or material derived from press releases. The ones you have added do it to some extent; you would do well to have others. If the organization is substantial, it will have done many missions, and these will have been written about, both at home and in the host country. Any language will do here. Add what you can find.

With a little more work it should hold. I advise you to fix the problems quickly, before the article gets nominated for deletion by a regular deletion process--anyone here can always do this.

And for the future you now understand that it's best not to press save until you've got something substantial, with at least one reference.

 DGG ( talk ) 01:22, 15 December 2012 (UTC)
Way to go, Jennifer! Congratulations on your new article! Klortho (talk) 18:44, 16 December 2012 (UTC)

and, thanks[edit]

It's great that you have continued here after your project for the educational program. This is just what we aim at, and you are one of our successes! I'm even more happy you persevered after the problems with your first independent article--things can be tricky here, and you've show the necessary patience. As you see, people are ready to help. Ask any of the people who commented above, if you encounter problems. Or ask me. I work here primarily to rescue new articles and almost all I look at are impossible to rescue, so I'm delighted to have helped a little with this one--and that you had basically rescued it yourself, without my having to do work on it.

I took the liberty of fixing the links to your Contributions page on your User page--what we usually call the contributions page is generated automatically. But if that is not what you intended to do, and you meant to make a separate list of what you have contributed to substantially or created yourself, just revert my changes--and you might then want to call it something like "My articles". Most people make such a list right on their user page, but of course you can do whatever you want on things like this. DGG ( talk ) 01:41, 15 December 2012 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

Hi, Jennifer, I'm very excited that you started a new article, and worked on it to make sure it survived. I took the liberty of showcasing it in the Wikipedia Ambassador's "trophy case". I hope you continue to find contributing to Wikipedia to be a rewarding experience! Klortho (talk) 19:34, 16 December 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for participating in the Molecular Biology Wikipedia assignment![edit]

Hi Jennifer,

I just wanted to thank you for your work as part of this project, and to wish you well in your future studies! I hope you enjoyed editing Wikipedia, and hope you continue to edit it whenever you find problems, or find something that you would like to add.

Don't hesitate to contact me with any questions, any time you want.

Happy holidays!

Disambiguation link notification for March 12[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Radiologists Without Borders, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Lourdes Hospital (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.
