Mr. Wolf, We need to have a serious talk about Asthma. Have you done any reading about ASTHMA? The Beta Adrenergic Theory is the ONLY Theory of Asthma that can be associated with one name {not including crackpots} so your question about other names insults my intelligence!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not only that but in contrast to other theories this one has been cited more than any other article in the history of the Journal of Allergy according to the GARFIELED LIBRARY at The University of Pennsylvania. Last but not least, my comment would be out of place in the history section because it relates DIRECTLY to the BA2 polymorphism. Since other polymorphisms CANNOT be related to a specific theory, much less to a specific individual, your comment doesn't make any sense. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Belgrade Glendenning (talkcontribs) 16:45, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

Hmm, you seem to have a typo or two. That should be a "D" at the start and two "f"s at the end, to correctly spell "Dr. Wolff".
You may have misunderstood the question at Talk:Asthma. The question is whether, in looking over the article, you saw any researchers being mentioned by name outside the history section. The implication is that if nobody at all is getting "advertised" in the scientific or medical parts of the article, then mentioning your favorite researcher there is not appropriate.

Belgrade Glendenning I don't think you're going to get very far on Wikipedia unless you get used to communicating better with other users. Remaining civil and avoiding personal attacks are key policies.
I don't dispute the fact that Szentivanyi may have contributed to the understanding of asthma, but I am unsure why is should be presented in the way that it was. I tried to explain in the edit summary and on the talk page that you needed to look at this, but instead I'm receiving a barrage of muscular language. JFW | T@lk 19:18, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

You won't back down. Right? You know absolutely nothing about what you edit, don't want to be educated, and prefer to hide behind Wikipedia. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Belgrade Glendenning (talkcontribs) 18:50, 26 September 2014 (UTC)

Hello Belgrade Glendenning. This is not a matter of backing down. You are adding a very prominent mention of one particular scientist by name, which goes quite against the style of the article. That was the predominant reason for my response to your edit. I am disappointed by the fact that you continue using harsh language, because it shows that you thoroughly misunderstand the collaborative nature of Wikipedia.

FAC revert[edit]

Thanks for reverting my accidental revert, and apologies for making it. The result of trying to read my Watchlist on an iPhone while driving. Euryalus (talk) 00:40, 24 September 2014 (UTC)

Feature – Ebola articles[edit]

Electron micrograph of an Ebola virus virion

During August we have translated Disease and it is now live in more than 60 different languages! To help us focus on African languages Rubric has donated a large number of articles in languages we haven't previously reached–so a shout out them, and Ian Henderson from Rubric who's joined us here at Wikipedia. We're very happy for our continued collaboration with both Rubric and Translators without Borders!

Just some of our over 60 translations:
New roles and guides!

At Wikimania there were so many enthusiastic people jumping at the chance to help out the Medical Translation Project, but unfortunately not all of them knew how to get started. That is why we've been spending considerable time writing and improving guides! They are finally live, and you can find them at our home-page!

New sign up page!

We're proud to announce a new sign up page at WP:MTSIGNUP! The old page was getting cluttered and didn't allow you to speficy a role. The new page should be easier to sign up to, and easier to navigate so that we can reach you when you're needed!

Style guides for translations

Translations are of both full articles and shorter articles continues. The process where short articles are chosen for translation hasn't been fully transparent. In the coming months we hope to have a first guide, so that anyone who writes medical or health articles knows how to get their articles to a standard where they can be translated! That's why we're currently working on medical good lede criteria! The idea is to have a similar peer review process to good article nominations, but only for ledes.

Unnamed discussion[edit]

sorry if this is the wrong place jfdwolff. In dental implants section I provided a really nice Cat Scan image that was removed and replaced by a Canadian dental practice. I object but wanted to speak with you first bc there is no added benefit with the replacement. DentalSchoolProfessor (talk) 23:22, 30 September 2014 (UTC)dentalschoolprofessor

Since this comment is directed at Jfdwolff, I've removed the helpme template. Zhaofeng Li [talk... contribs...] 01:30, 1 October 2014 (UTC)
