Adrianne Wadewitz Memorial edit-a-thons[edit]

Adrianne Wadewitz edit-a-thons in Southern New England
Wikimania 2012 portrait 102 by ragesoss, 2012-07-13.JPG

As you may have already heard, the Wikipedia community lost an invaluable member of the community last month. Adrianne Wadewitz was a feminist scholar of 18th-Century British literature, and a prolific editor of the site. As part of a worldwide series of tributes, New England Wikimedians, in conjunction with local institutions of higher learning, have created three edit-a-thons that will be occurring in May and June. The events are as follows:

We hope that you will be able to join us, whether you are an experienced editor or are using Wikipedia for the first time.

I have moved the external link to a new External links section - we discourage external links in the body of an article. I and other editors have also pruned out a lot more of the hyperbole and unencyclopedic content.--ukexpat (talk) 18:19, 27 June 2014 (UTC)

Hi. When adding references to articles, it's best to make a ref rather than an inline EL, as you did on Housing cooperatives, it's now the preferred method. Best, BMK (talk) 19:04, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Designated Member Review[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. This is a notice to inform you that a tag has been placed on Designated Member Review requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A3 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an article with no content whatsoever, or whose contents consist only of external links, a "See also" section, book references, category tags, template tags, interwiki links, images, a rephrasing of the title, a question that should have been asked at the help or reference desks, or an attempt to contact the subject of the article. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay.

Information icon Welcome to Wikipedia. It might not have been your intention, but you removed a speedy deletion tag from a page you have created yourself. If you believe the page should not be deleted, you may contest the deletion by clicking on the button that says: Contest this speedy deletion and appears inside the speedy deletion notice. This will allow you to make your case on the article's talk page. Administrators will consider your reasoning before deciding what to do with the page. Noting that you are right that that Tagus no longer appropriate; this is just a technical matter. Thanks, Lixxx235Got a complaint? 04:46, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

Information icon Thank you for your contributions. Please mark your edits as "minor" only if they are minor edits. In accordance with Help:Minor edit, a minor edit is one that the editor believes requires no review and could never be the subject of a dispute. Minor edits consist of things such as typographical corrections, formatting changes or rearrangement of text without modification of content. Additionally, the reversion of clear-cut vandalism and test edits may be labeled "minor". Thank you. Thanks, Lixxx235Got a complaint? 05:06, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

Hello from a fellow health fan![edit]

Hello, my name is Lane. I edit health articles with Wikiproject Medicine and I live in NYC. I saw what you are doing with Designated Member Review, and I am happy for your interest in clinical research. I also edit articles related to clinical research.

It so happens that I have a colleague visiting from India, AbhiSuryawanshi, who is with me in New York but will be attending the Wikipedia:Meetup/Boston/3rd Annual Wikimedia New England General Meeting tomorrow, Saturday 19 July. He does medical translation to Indian languages and manages a small amount of clinical research in India, and is here in the United States to talk with people about doing a bit more. He was disappointed that he was unable to meet with some of the people he had hoped to meet at Harvard to talk about global health, and now I am seeing that you are in Boston, a Wikipedian, and also interested in global health and clinical research ethics.

I am writing to suggest that perhaps when Abhishek is in Boston tomorrow you two could meet, either at the general meeting or otherwise. I myself will not be attending this meeting, but I too would like to meet you when next I am in Boston. It is nice to meet you on-wiki now. Take care, and it would be nice to talk more soon. Email me if you want to voice or video chat sometime. Blue Rasberry (talk) 14:36, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

Nomination of Grace Wong (immunologist) for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Grace Wong (immunologist) is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Grace Wong (immunologist) until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. Gaijin42 (talk) 02:52, 23 July 2014 (UTC)

Anita Isaacs[edit]

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Anita Isaacs, and it appears to include material copied directly from http://www.haverford.edu/faculty/aisaacs.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. The article will be reviewed to determine if there are any copyright issues.

If substantial content is duplicated and it is not public domain or available under a compatible license, it will be deleted. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material.

Rynn Berry[edit]

Hi MaynardClark,

I made some small copy edits, MOS, removing lists, ect, ect. I would be happy to discuss these changes on the article's talk page. To blindly revert them all and call them "sabotages" is offensive and not helpful. Thank you, --Malerooster (talk) 01:03, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

Yes, we should discuss them, but IMO those are not small edits. MaynardClark (talk) 01:06, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

So you would rather the article be shit? Great. --Malerooster (talk) 01:55, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

We should discuss your proposed changes in the ARTICLE's talk section.

  • I'm happy to discuss your suggestions here or there. They're not without merit.
  • I appreciate reasons for a very trimmed down version of most if not all articles.

MaynardClark (talk) 01:57, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

I will use the article talk page to discuss improvements to the article. I will not post here again. --Malerooster (talk) 02:39, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

Hi. I thought I'd just mention, in case you don't realise it, that your Latin userpage reads as complete nonsense. To be honest, it doesn't do you any credit. Maybe you intend to work at translating it into real Latin -- if so, that's perfectly fine of course. If not, you might reconsider whether you really want it to stay there ... Vale optime!

September 2014[edit]

Information icon Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. You appear to be engaged in an edit war with one or more editors according to your reverts at Joel Fuhrman. Although repeatedly reverting or undoing another editor's contributions may seem necessary to protect your preferred version of a page, on Wikipedia this is usually seen as obstructing the normal editing process, and often creates animosity between editors. Instead of edit warring, please discuss the situation with the editor(s) involved and try to reach a consensus on the talk page.

If editors continue to revert to their preferred version they are likely to be blocked from editing. This isn't done to punish an editor, but to prevent the disruption caused by edit warring. In particular, editors should be aware of the three-revert rule, which says that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. While edit warring on Wikipedia is not acceptable in any amount, breaking the three-revert rule is very likely to lead to a block. Thank you. Alexbrn talk|contribs|COI 04:07, 8 September 2014 (UTC)

Thank you, Alex. You will see that we DISCUSS issues (and not always in the kindest of terms). We have the 3Rs rule, which I've not violated, but there are substantive edits and arguments which I feel warrant a referee in this matter. Whqat has not been acknowledged are my quesations for a concept (or topical) organization of the inner portion of the article, since the subject has based his work - the ANDI and his teaching - on nutrient-density, SPECIFICALLY the notion of micronutrient density. What is missing for 3rd party readers is a discussion of what micronutrients and macronutrients are (though they could look them up with the links). Other actors on the article seem determined to not look at the scientifically established (or at least scientifically discussed) concept of nutrient-density (as I documented on the talk page). I hope that you will applly the same rigorous standards of editorial fairness when looking at some of the comments (not merely edits) of the other actors on the article. MaynardClark (talk) 04:12, 8 September 2014 (UTC)
Edit-warring has been happening on that page and 3RR I am sure has been broken. This was just a gentle reminder to ensure you aware of the policy. Discussions about the article's content should take place on its talk page but in brief it's important to avoid WP:OR and WP:SYNTH by ensuring any sources cited for Fuhrman's concepts are explicitly about those concepts. Alexbrn talk|contribs|COI 04:24, 8 September 2014 (UTC)



Conflict of interest?[edit]

Please be aware of WP:COI, Wikipedia's guidelines on conflict of interest. Have you got any conflict of interest around the topic of Joel Fuhrman? Alexbrn talk|contribs|COI 04:20, 8 September 2014 (UTC)

The other actors on the article seem to have a COI. Have you asked each of them?

Nothing but the facts - established facts. MaynardClark (talk) 04:22, 8 September 2014 (UTC)

That was a non-answer. To avoid misunderstandings and save time could you please either answer the question or simply say you are not going to (which you are perfectly entitled to do). To be clear I am not asking for any details, just a simple "yes", "no" or "no comment" would be helpful. Alexbrn talk|contribs|COI 04:27, 8 September 2014 (UTC)

I'm guessing that you or some of the other actors may, since they have reverted edits numerous times, including grammatically correct edits. I think you need another super-editor coming in here to review it.

An answer to your question depends on what you mean by COI. I do believe in the scientifically-established concept of nutrient density as clinically useful (and as established independently of Dr. Fuhrman's ANDI formulation, which is essentially a chart of foods RANKED by their nutrient-density; ranking is commonly used in statistics AND biostatistics), but I have no fCOI with anything related to Joel Fuhrman. Did I answer your question? MaynardClark (talk) 04:31, 8 September 2014 (UTC)

Not really. I'll not press it. Alexbrn talk|contribs|COI 04:38, 8 September 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Norman Daniels[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Norman Daniels requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article or image appears to be a clear copyright infringement. This article or image appears to be a direct copy from http://www.hsph.harvard.edu/norman-daniels/. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If the external website or image belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text or image — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. If you are not the owner of the external website or image but have permission from that owner, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

A possible 'rewrite' could be Role of nurses in ebola outbreaks (patient care, advocacy, research subjects, policy contributors, etc.). I would like to know how many research subects are in this specific trial (which neither the more general vaccine article nor the array of articles on the history of ebolavirus outbreaks are appropriate to hold), how long this drug trial is expected to last/require and some of the crisis issues related to vaccine production, and maybe even convert the page to a page that addresses some of that interest in the research subjects. MaynardClark (talk) 17:15, 17 October 2014 (UTC)

We typically don't have articles about people only notable for one event. The information about clinical trials can go into the article on CAd3-ZEBOV just fine... Issues about vaccine production are probably best covered in Ebola virus disease#Vaccine. Information on the role of nurses you've suggested fits in the Nursing article just fine, without a separate article about Ebola nurses. We already cover some of the effects of Ebola virus disease specifically on healthcare workers: Ebola_virus_epidemic_in_West_Africa#Deaths_of_healthcare_workers. If you want to rewrite/convert the Ruth Atkins article into an entirely different topic, you could do that in your user space. But it sounds like you want a bunch of different information that fits into existing articles just fine... Xqxf (talk) 17:47, 17 October 2014 (UTC)
Be sure that it does include that data somewhere (I don't yet see anything approaching it at this time!). The human interest side of the human subjects research is underappreciated, yet it's really a very stressful role in testing something that is that urgently required but for which efficacy has not been calculated. There COULD be a 'stub class article' MaynardClark (talk) 17:53, 17 October 2014 (UTC)
If you want to be sure the data is included, the best way is to keep an eye on the CAd3-ZEBOV article and see that the data is added when the trials are further along. About the human interest side, this is probably best covered in articles like Human subject research and Guidelines for human subject research. The articles on ZMapp and brincidofovir (other Ebola drugs) have "human interest" sections, and you could add similar to CAd3-ZEBOV, perhaps. (Or expand Ebola virus disease#Vaccine to cover anything you feel is missing about the use of experimental drugs in Ebola patients.) Xqxf (talk) 18:06, 17 October 2014 (UTC)

edit war warning[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on European Sleep Apnea Database. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Please be particularly aware that Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing.

I wondered if anybody would notice that I reassessed Ebola virus disease as Top for WikiProject Medicine and only High for Wikiproject Viruses, and reassessed Ebola virus as only High for WikiProject Medicine but Top for Wikiproject Viruses. Abductive (reasoning) 06:55, 18 October 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Healthcare workers contracting ebola[edit]

Wikipedia:Healthcare workers contracting ebola appears to be an effort by you to create an article in mainspace but instead you have created it in Wikipedia space. Or perhaps it is a draft, still? You should either move it to mainspace or to draft space or to your own user space, like a sandbox. If you don't know how, I can help you. Jytdog (talk) 07:16, 18 October 2014 (UTC)

you got there! please note Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Medicine#Lists_of_ebola_patients_and_articles_on_individual_ebola_patients Jytdog (talk) 08:18, 18 October 2014 (UTC)

Help[edit]

In good faith I created a new category "Church History" which I attached to many other articles and to the article Mani. It has now been nominated for deletion. Please participate in the discussion here: WP:Categories for discussion/Log/2014 October 31

Thank you so much.

Jeff Novick page??[edit]

Great edit to Plant-based diet - perhaps you could make a Jeff Novick article? I think it would make a great contribution to the plant-based page. I would start but am swamped in RL and am only on the WP in spurts. -Classicfilms (talk) 18:25, 8 November 2014 (UTC)

Thank you. I will. Maybe not today, though. What would you like to see included in it? MaynardClark (talk) 18:33, 8 November 2014 (UTC)

Of course, time is always hard for everyone, maybe just something to think through for awhile. WP:BLP articles are something that I tend to do, but am pretty to open to content. Maybe it would be useful to see what is there for T. Colin Campbell, John A. McDougall, Rip Esselstyn, and Caldwell Esselstyn. With BLP's secondary sources are probably the most important place to begin so that may take some time to track down. I've read Novick's work and it is I feel quite notable but it may take some time to organize enough materials for an article. Plant-Based Diet is a tough area because there isn't a great deal of consensus as to terminology but maybe BLP's are a good place to begin -- and to expand (meaning current articles could all use work). -Classicfilms (talk) 20:14, 8 November 2014 (UTC)

I prefer tne nutrient-dense approach, not the calorie-dense approach. MaynardClark (talk) 20:20, 8 November 2014 (UTC)
Wow, that's a great outline. I would say that the goal now would be to work with WP:BLPSOURCES. Solid secondary references tend to be at the heart of BLP's and that is what may take time to track down. Signing off for today but will check back in next week. -Classicfilms (talk) 20:22, 8 November 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Hannah Allam[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Hannah Allam requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here.

Copyright checks when performing AfC reviews[edit]

Hello MaynardClark. This message is part of a mass mailing to people who appear active in reviewing articles for creation submissions. First of all, thank you for taking part in this important work! I'm sorry this message is a form letter – it really was the only way I could think of to covey the issue economically. Of course, this also means that I have not looked to see whether the matter is applicable to you in particular.

The issue is in rather large numbers of copyright violations ("copyvios") making their way through AfC reviews without being detected (even when easy to check, and even when hallmarks of copyvios in the text that should have invited a check, were glaring). A second issue is the correct method of dealing with them when discovered.

If you don't do so already, I'd like to ask for your to help with this problem by taking on the practice of performing a copyvio check as the first step in any AfC review. The most basic method is to simply copy a unique but small portion of text from the draft body and run it through a search engine in quotation marks. Trying this from two different paragraphs is recommended. (If you have any question about whether the text was copied from the draft, rather than the other way around (a "backwards copyvio"), the Wayback Machine is very useful for sussing that out.)

If you do find a copyright violation, please do not decline the draft on that basis. Copyright violations need to be dealt with immediately as they may harm those whose content is being used and expose Wikipedia to potential legal liability. If the draft is substantially a copyvio, and there's no non-infringing version to revert to, please mark the page for speedy deletion right away using {{db-g12|url=URL of source}}. If there is an assertion of permission, please replace the draft article's content with {{subst:copyvio|url=URL of source}}.

Some of the more obvious indicia of a copyvio are use of the first person ("we/our/us..."), phrases like "this site", or apparent artifacts of content written for somewhere else ("top", "go to top", "next page", "click here", use of smartquotes, etc.); inappropriate tone of voice, such as an overly informal tone or a very slanted marketing voice with weasel words; including intellectual property symbols (™,®); and blocks of text being added all at once in a finished form with no misspellings or other errors.

I hope this message finds you well and thanks again you for your efforts in this area. Best regards--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 02:20, 18 November 2014 (UTC).

Fuhrman[edit]

Greets. Got any secondary source that discusses Fuhrman's journal articles? With a ref they can be added back if found notable enough to be discussed in secondary sources. - - MrBill3 (talk) 04:25, 8 December 2014 (UTC)

Personhood[edit]

Here is your revert. Perhaps you know the better way to indicate the logical fallacy, then do it, please. However, given your logic, circular reasoning is appropriate for the article page. Besides, what already (properly) appears on the talk page? My text, or the whole article? 85.193.232.131 (talk) 04:08, 25 February 2015 (UTC)

Oops - sorry - you mean the article talk page. But the average user does NOT read any talk page. Besides, my information is about a very serious logical fallacy, unacceptable in any encyclopedia.
