Reference Errors on 1 April[edit]

Hello, I'm ReferenceBot. I have automatically detected that some edits performed by you may have introduced errors in referencing. They are as follows:

Please check these pages and fix the errors highlighted. If you think this is a false positive, you can report it to my operator. Thanks, ReferenceBot (talk) 00:39, 2 April 2014 (UTC)

Re:Requesting Guidance[edit]

Thanks for getting in contact! Sure, I would be happy to help in any way I can! --JSquish (talk) 19:50, 19 April 2014 (UTC)


Re:Requesting Guidance[edit]

I am flattered by the request for help, but I'm sorry -- I simply do not have the time for Wikipedia that I used to. I hope you are able to get in contact with more experienced editors than I that will be able to help you out; best of luck! Wingman4l7 (talk) 22:21, 22 April 2014 (UTC)

your request[edit]

sorry i haven't responded to User_talk:Jytdog#Requesting_Guidance earlier. OK, so it seems that you want to update the genetic engineering article, with content about synthetic biology. Is that correct? Jytdog (talk) 12:08, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

Explaining[edit]

I patrolled your page. I went through the enormously-backlogged list of newly-created pages and confirmed that your page was okay: not spam, not an attack page, not a copyright violation, not any of the other reasons for which I would delete someone's page without asking. Then I clicked "patrolled" to remove it from the list of "pages that have not yet been patrolled", and moved on to the next entry. That's all. DS (talk) 18:06, 14 May 2014 (UTC)

Sorry for not having replied earlier; I deal with lots of people and occasionally one slips my mind. I'm really not that familiar with the topic of your article, or with the pending merge suggestion; it was just a quick once-over to make sure there was nothing wrong with what you were doing. Same as I (try to) give everyone. DS (talk) 18:08, 14 May 2014 (UTC)

Property & Casualty request[edit]

I am happy to help you, although you may need to poke/ ping me as a reminder. I will reply to you on my own talk page going forward, unless it is for specific article talk. AIG is a rather important company. Please explain why you want to merge it with the other company, and how you might go about doing it. If you don't know how or why, I can help you. But you need to explain why you think a merge is needed.

Just create a new section on my talk page, and we'll discuss it there! Thank you.--FeralOink (talk) 22:43, 16 May 2014 (UTC)

Message for you from me on AIG talk page. I'm sorry.--FeralOink (talk) 14:50, 11 October 2014 (UTC)

And I might add, in re writing on synthetic biology[edit]

...that Wikipedia wants, per its policies, secondary sources (reviews, book chapters, etc.) used for most scientific sourcing of factual content. If you rely on primary research, almost inevitably you are violating WP:OR because you are deciding what is important, and/or how to interpret it (hence violating WP:PSTS—rather than allowing the published opinion-shapers decide. (We are opinion-reporters, and not opinion-shapers here.) I liken this to the difference in biographical work, to reporting from the best books and articles of historians, rather than from newspaper reports (a primary source in that area). Making our writing secondary source-based will give it the context needed for it to be encyclopedic, and to remain in place for long periods. (Besides which, anyone can revert primary source-based work, with less justification than secondary, so you will not be wasting your time.) Hence, while synthetic biology is exploding, restricting yourself to books, solid reviews in journals, and the like will best inform you, and make the writing more proscribed. Finally, note, news reports are only good to cite that a scientific report is newsworthy (and not as a source of the scientific facts), and press releases are never acceptable scientific sources. Otherwise, I agree with the foregoing comment that batter made, to steer clear od commercial sources (and websites/bare URL sources in general). Best wishes, and loking forward to what you come up with. Cheers. Le Prof

I understand the advice, but have I done something wrong in terms of citation 19 in on the synthetic biology page?Lgkkitkat (talk) 21:03, 11 June 2014 (UTC)
No complaints about it, but I will have a close look. Three quick notes: First, when you reply to people in Talk, you look to the last paragraph above it, and see how many colons ( : ) appear, and then you add one before you begin to type. Your "I understand…" paragraph should have started with one colon ( : ), and so I added it. Since yours had one, mine required two (::). This creates the progressive indentations that allow each person to know who is responding to whom. Second, I would encourage you to try to read more on your own, and do experiments to try to learn things. (Like, you should be able to figure out about Edit histories and View history and ( : ) and even how I create the links that I will make for you—all by looking around, and paying attention. That and reading, for instance WP:V and [1]… should allow you to save time with other patient editors like Market, for the real hard questions, the ones where you tried and cannot find the answer. Third, I just left you a long note at Market's talk page, so click here [2]. Enjoy! Bonne chance, bonne nuit. Le Prof Leprof 7272 (talk) 05:56, 12 June 2014 (UTC)
P.S. At Market's talk page, how did I make my text appear against a gray background? Click in the edit tag, and look around for funny code… this is called "markup language", and it separates experienced from inexperienced users. (All about markup language that I know, I have \_{TAUGHT} myself.) When you see something intriguing, click on edit, see how they did it. Then try it out in your sandbox. Etc. Le Prof Leprof 7272 (talk) 05:57, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

Cheers to you, best wishes[edit]

And by the way, you will see I have been to Synth Biol, and it is NOT a good place to be learning science writing. Cheers. Le Prof Leprof 7272 (talk) 08:17, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

It is a messy page...but I really do appreciate your advice. So far my basic edits have not been reverted and maybe I should stick to subjects of interest/basic knowledge - that way I would know for certain how to identify usable sources :) Lgkkitkat (talk) 08:23, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Honeywell may have broken the syntax by modifying 2 "{}"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.
