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):
  • You can feel free to contact us on the WikiProkect Physiology talk page if you have any problems, or wish to join us. You can also put your suggestions there and discuss the scope of participation.

Hoping for your cooperation! DiptanshuTalk 12:52, 27 April 2014 (UTC)

The Shapies[edit]

Would you like to help me with the article? — Preceding unsigned comment added by ArthurRead1234 (talkcontribs) 13:33, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

No, but thanks for the invitation. --LilHelpa (talk) 13:36, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Pride 2014[edit]

Hi LilHelpa. In case you are not aware, there is an upcoming campaign to improve coverage of LGBT-related topics on Wikipedia, culminating with an international edit-a-thon on June 21. See Atlanta's Wikipedia:Meetup/Atlanta/Wiki Loves Pride 2014 for more information. We are expanding the LGBT Atlanta, Georgia pages. This would be a tremendous help to Wikipedia and coverage of LGBT culture and history. Thanks for your consideration, and please let me know if you have any questions! --tdempsey (talk) 06:59, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up on this. Won't be available 6/21. --LilHelpa (talk) 11:26, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

Nicolae Iorga[edit]

Hi. I want to thank you for this, but could I persuade you to change all citations to that new format? Changing just a random selection places a burden on the other editors to change the rest, and I frankly find that more tiresome than reverting your edit. Please see my point. Dahn (talk) 13:14, 29 June 2014 (UTC)

Sure, I'll do that. I probably ran out of time or got tired. Hey, someone's gotta do that tiresome stuff, right? :) --LilHelpa (talk) 16:06, 29 June 2014 (UTC)

Many thanks. Help still needed[edit]

Hello, thank you for your work on the Williams Carmona article. I am trying to de-orphan it, I was wondering if you could help me with that, as I am new to this. (talk) 20:21, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

Done. You're welcome.

Temperature in Kelvin[edit]

I noticed that you changed "K" to "°K" in this edit. I'd like to let you know that, unlike °C, the temperature unit Kelvin is never combined with a degrees sign. Also, in proper spoken language "degrees Kelvin" is not used. --JorisvS (talk) 18:32, 20 October 2014 (UTC)

Ah. Thanks for letting me know. I was uneasy about that one and had a feeling I should have left it alone. LilHelpa (talk) 18:35, 20 October 2014 (UTC)


Hello. Thank you for your correction to mālāsana but unfortunately, because of my own syntax errors you mistook my use of "a" to be the indefinite article instead of a reference to the letter used in the spelling of mālāsana (as 'ā' instead of 'a'). I've changed it back from "an" to "a" and put half quotes around it to avoid this confusion in the future. I'd imagine it's more intelligible now and I wouldn't have noticed the ambiguity if not for your correction, so thanks.Iṣṭa Devata (talk) 02:49, 2 November 2014 (UTC)

Glad to have helped, if only inadvertently :) -LilHelpa (talk) 13:56, 2 November 2014 (UTC)

It's to it is[edit]

I'm not sure where the manual of style on contractions, Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Abbreviations, states that we shouldn't use contractions in prose. Perhaps you could show me. Walter Görlitz (talk) 21:33, 21 December 2014 (UTC)

Re: your message on my talk page, I can quickly reference MOS:CONTRACTION, but I'm not sure how you are defining "prose". Generally speaking I try to avoid expanding contractions in things like articles recapping episodes of shows, etc. My understanding of this issue is based on another MOS section indicating that contractions 1) do not sound encyclopedic and 2) are less clear in meaning. - LilHelpa (talk) 21:43, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
See also MOS:ABBR from which I quote: "A contraction is an abbreviation of one or more words that has some or all of the middle letters removed but retains the first and final letters (e.g. Mr and aren't). Missing letters are replaced by an apostrophe in multiple-word contractions. Multiple-word contractions should not be used . . . " (italics mine) -LilHelpa (talk) 21:53, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
Thank you. The first link was the one I provided. The second was more clear. Walter Görlitz (talk) 22:21, 21 December 2014 (UTC)

great Helpa
Thank you for getting me started in the English-speaking world! I entered the wiki-gnome category myself, following you and another model. With a pictured Bach cantata on the Main page, thinking of you, - repeating: you are an awesome Wikipedian (23 June 2010)!

--Gerda Arendt (talk) 19:03, 19 February 2012 (UTC)

Three years ago, you were the 29th recipient of my PumpkinSky Prize, - last Bach cantata featured was on 7 February, --Gerda Arendt (talk) 12:35, 19 February 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, Gerda. You are one of my favorites, too. I think about you whenever I edit a classical or religious music article. --LilHelpa (talk) 14:17, 19 February 2015 (UTC)
