Mass in Kg weight in Pounds?[edit]

Never heard of this. We weight people in Kg up where I live. We rarely use pounds (just the old people). In the USA I know the nonscientific us pounds and the scientific us Kg. Maybe that is the difference. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) (if I write on your page reply on mine) 22:16, 23 November 2013 (UTC)

co-authors[edit]

Apropos of your edit at Richard Watson (singer) I had no idea that "coauthors" was now deprecated. I have put this field in dozens, probably hundreds, of articles. Is there any way of replacing the lot or is it a matter of remembering to change them when next visiting each article? Tangentially, following what I find the prevalent practice in printed references, I prefer the second author to be John Smith, rather than Smith, John. It's not a matter of great importance, and I see the WP:cite book page allows for this. I'll go down that route in future, and am obliged to you for raising the matter. Best wishes, Tim riley (talk) 19:09, 6 December 2013 (UTC)

Your copyediting[edit]

An/a[edit]

As far as I know version, an is used mainly before vowel sound (a, e, i, o, u)[2]. And SSRI (Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor) doesn't begin with one. I think you're wrong here. Alex discussion 23:51, 19 December 2013 (UTC)

I see what you mean. However, S has an "invisible" vowel sound—an "E" at the beginning—so it breaks this rule. Anytime you have two vowel sounds in English you need to punctuate them with a short stop using a consonant, regardless of how it's written. Most cases are words beginning with a, e, i, o, or u, but there are exceptions. Other examples—"an MRI", "an NBA game", "an NGO", "an X-ray", "an SUV"—might be more familiar. It doesn't make sense when looking at the words, only when reading them out loud do you notice.
To quote the same source, [this] might be what you're looking for. They use "an hour" as an example of what I'm talking about. meteor_sandwich_yum (talk) 00:25, 20 December 2013 (UTC)
EDIT: A source of confusion here might be regarding acronyms. If you spell out Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor, you precede it with a; if you just use the acronym SSRI, you precede it with an. Again, pronunciation is more relevant than spelling. meteor_sandwich_yum (talk) 00:29, 20 December 2013 (UTC)
Dude, awesome user page, by the way. Just thought I'd say. Mine is so cluttered. ~MSY.

Broken script?[edit]

This edit of yours left unexpanded {{subst:DATE}} tags to the article for some reason. --hydrox (talk) 17:10, 4 January 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for catching & correcting those. I copyedited by hand, so it wasn't a script that was broken; "subst:[anything]" doesn't work within <ref>...</ref> tags for some reason (a MediaWiki code bug maybe?).
I think I'll write those in full next time... meteor_sandwich_yum (talk) 07:15, 5 January 2014 (UTC)
Strange.. Seems like a MediaWiki bug. --hydrox (talk) 22:28, 5 January 2014 (UTC)

Template edits[edit]

Wanted to let you know that I've given you the "template editor" user right, which will allow you to edit pages that have been given "template-editor protection". This won't help with {{Actinium}}, since it's fully protected, but it will enable you to edit many templates that shouldn't be just semiprotected. The user right is quite new and just got consensus a few months ago, so there are lots of templates currently at full protection that need to be downgraded to template-editor protected. In case you wonder — I gave you the right because it's clear that you're making a lot of good edits to templates: it looks like you're exactly the kind of editor for whom this user right was created, since it's meant to ensure that trustworthy people can implement edits to templates instead of having to wait around for editprotected requests to be answered. With this in mind, please continue doing what you have been doing, and if you find a template that's been fully protected because of vulnerability/numerous transclusions, you're welcome to go to RFPP and ask that they be downgraded to template-editor, or removed entirely if they're in a situation like the Actinium template. Nyttend (talk) 03:05, 20 January 2014 (UTC)

You're quite welcome. Frankly speaking, you don't meet the criteria :-) Note that the page explicitly permits admins to use other criteria to decide whether an editor's suitable for the userright, so I didn't break any rules even though you don't meet the criteria. At least right now, I can't think of a situation in which I'd grant the right to someone who's recently gotten a behavioral block (except for an accident, e.g. I blocked you when I meant to block someone else), and I definitely wouldn't grant it to someone who's not editing templates. However, you've made tons of template edits since joining in September, and the main reasons for having this feature are to make it easier for people like you and to reduce the number of {{editprotected}} requests, so I've normally granted the right to people who've made a lot of good template edits. I don't have any qualms about giving it to you; please don't give me reason to start qualming :-) Nyttend (talk) 05:47, 21 January 2014 (UTC)

CO2 template[edit]

The tag you placed on the CO2 template appears to be causing a speedy deletion tag to appear everywhere that the CO2 in curly braces is used (as shown below). I'm not an experienced template editor (I'm not sure I even have permissions to fix this problem), so I hope that you can resolve this issue. Thank you! James McBride (talk) 22:38, 22 January 2014 (UTC)

I just killed the speedy - the number of pages with speedy deletions was going past 600 and climbing. Just drop me a note with want you want doing.  Ronhjones  (Talk) 22:40, 22 January 2014 (UTC)
Oh, thank you! It looks like you did that right before I finished my message here. James McBride (talk) 22:41, 22 January 2014 (UTC)
Thanks anyway, James McBride. Dumb error I made. Face-wink.svg meteor_sandwich_yum (talk) 22:44, 22 January 2014 (UTC)
Do I take it you want {{CO2}} to be swapped with {{Co2}} ?  Ronhjones  (Talk) 22:53, 22 January 2014 (UTC)
Yes. I couldn't perform the move with the redirect in the way. I'm considering taking advantage of "Displaytitle" so the nomenclature fits but they remain convenient typing aids without redirects. I didn't realize it had that many transclusions. Hold on then... meteor_sandwich_yum (talk) 22:55, 22 January 2014 (UTC)
Currently:
  • Pages transcluded for {{Co2}}: 176.
  • Pages transcluded for {{CO2}}: 522.
People use CO2 more, so I think it should be the main template, with Co2 as a redirect.
Yes, I'd like that move after all. meteor_sandwich_yum (talk) 23:00, 22 January 2014 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done There was nothing worth keeping in the redirect history, so I just let the system delete it as I moved it, it has automatically created a new redirect at the old name. It will take a while for Category:Candidates for speedy deletion to get back to normal - any admin now looking at that list will not be able to work out why the pages are there :-)  Ronhjones  (Talk) 23:08, 22 January 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, I'll remember those <nowiki>...</nowiki> tags next time :) Thanks :) meteor_sandwich_yum (talk) 23:16, 22 January 2014 (UTC)
  • This admin has worked out why they were there and I knew immediately what the problem was - it did take a bit longer to work out which edit had caused it - not that it mattered! For future reference: the db-move tag that you applied should have been placed between <noinclude></noinclude> tags not <nowiki></nowiki>. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 00:38, 23 January 2014 (UTC)
Noted. That was a typo, by the way. meteor_sandwich_yum (talk) 00:50, 23 January 2014 (UTC)

No such thing as a useless editor.[edit]

I noticed on your user page that you say you sometimes feel useless on Wikipedia.

There's no need to feel that way, as there's no such thing as a useless editor.

Just keep doing what you do, and never be afraid to ask for help if you get stuck.

By the way..these are for you:

The first one is something you're automatically entitled to when you sign up on Wikipedia, and the second one you earned due to the amount of time and edits you put in.

Heh[edit]

Hey, Meteor sandwich yum! I saw your question on the Teahouse and was wondering about it. (In passing, an IP block exemption is what you're looking for, but it's only handed out in very limited circumstances.) Anyway, my question is (and without meaning to pry too much): do you think it'll help to only use TOR some of the time? Even assuming that TOR is a perfect safeguard against surveillance: if you make edits without the protection of TOR, they'll be able to track you based on those unprotected edits, and then they'll be able to link your protected edits to you because they're all associated with the same username. Again, I don't mean to pry, so if this makes you uncomfortable, just say the word and I'll drop it. Your question just got me to thinking, and since it's pretty much off-topic, I didn't want to clutter up the Teahouse question with it. Anyway, cheers! :) Writ Keeper  01:04, 4 February 2014 (UTC)

@Writ Keeper: Don't mind at all, just will phrase this very openly.
There is a point to using it even occasionally, because in order for me to be traced, a human would have to connect the dots (as most traffic is just recorded on government servers to be analyzed indefinitely later at their leisure). Although it's a security vulnerability to pass traffic both unencrypted and through TOR simultaneously, and for an adversary to notice the traffic in real-time; only using TOR some of the time is not so much a risk (possible, but not probable).
Also, by editing under TOR I help secure others' Internet traffic every time I edit a page (also another reason I want an IPBE). So even if I'm traced, others aren't, and I do good collaterally.

Nice question, though. Got me to think about it! And thanks for the answer. meteor_sandwich_yum (talk) 02:20, 4 February 2014 (UTC)

Taste of New Wine[edit]

(Regarding the eponymous article)

I'd be more sympathetic to marking that BLP if he was living, but the article says the author of that book died in 2012. I mostly work at trying to do triage on actual BLPs, which is why I fiddled with the tags. Also, I kinda felt like the one in the Refs section was redundant, but *shrug*.

Mostly I don't think it should show up on lists like this: Wikipedia:Database_reports/Biographies_of_living_people_possibly_eligible_for_deletion --j⚛e deckertalk 19:54, 25 February 2014 (UTC)

@Joe Decker: You're entirely correct on both accounts. (I didn't even notice he had died!) Your version was more elegant. Redundant tag was accidental. meteor_sandwich_yum (talk) 22:28, 25 February 2014 (UTC)

Newbys[edit]

Hello, meteor sandwich yum... I'm todd adams, the real todd adams, owner of newbys, i bought the company from david newby harsh...

I would appreciate if you would put my statements back on the wiki page! Or take the Newbys wiki page off!

i'm the one that was steam rolled by BMI... I'm also the only one in the that has ever won a judgement while fighting BMI... Which BMI didnt like, they in turn sued me again in Federal Court for Copyright Infringement... This went on for a while, we settled because I had no more money to pay lawyers to represent me... I failed miserably representing myself against 4 lawyers from NY, Nashville and locally... I failed in the mediation and was forced to agree to insane terms, in due time i failed to comply with and was ordered to pay even more $$$ to BMI lawyers... All under the veil of secrecy, not to divulge any information to the public!

I spent time yesterday writing the FACTS in my incident! What happened to me, as doing business as Newbys... This was and is what happened in the controversies of Newbys!

I would appreciate if you would put my statements back on the wiki page! Or take the Newbys wiki page off! As there's no reason to tell / post one side of the story! BMI is worse than organized crime, the Mafia! Stealing from the public billions of dollars, not paying to artists their due... as they have no idea what songs are actually played in businesses! the smallest % scales collected from private and public companies are paid to the highest of the level of artists and keeping the majority to line their pockets, buy the most expensive parcels of property, throw lavish parties and retain the best, most expensive lawyers / bribe officials... this and the other license companies have no room for our World! Here in Memphis, TN they threatened to sue the public library per the music they let students and the public listen to, to the tune of over $20K the City was forced to pay BMI or go to court, costing the City even more $$$... One City out of all the Cities in America... $20K is a drop in the bucket they steal / rob / threaten everyone!

BMI most uttered phrase: PAY US OR WE WILL SUE YOU!

Welcome to Wikipedia from the Anatomy Wikiproject![edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia from Wikiproject Anatomy! We're a group of editors who strive to improve the quality of anatomy articles here on Wikipedia. One of our members has noticed that you are involved in editing anatomy articles; it's great to have a new interested editor on board. In your wiki-voyages, a few things that may be relevant to editing wikipedia articles are:

Sobo 1909 589.png
  • Thanks for coming aboard! We always appreciate a new editor. Feel free to leave us a message at any time on the WikiProkect Anatomy 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 will make a big difference to the quality of information by adding reliable sources. Sourcing anatomy 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!
  • Lastly, why not try and strive to create a good article! Anatomical articles are often small in scope, have available sources, and only a limited amount of research available that is readily presentable!

Feel free to contact us on the WikiProkect Anatomy talk page if you have any problems, or wish to join us. I wish you all the best on your wiki-voyages! Sorry, we just have this one template. Thanks for your recent edits, they're much appreciated. --LT910001 (talk) 12:18, 28 February 2014 (UTC)

New Article[edit]

Hello Meteor sandwich yum. I have a question about new article. I didn't understand exactly about wgolf's message with this title "Speedy deletion nomination of Mostafa Amini". This person wrote to me that why my article has been removed. can you tell me what was wrong with me? I guess it's because I wrote nothing about person and just wrote Infobox person. 229amini (talk) 13:31, 14 March 2014 (UTC)

Hi @229amini:
The simple answer is yes, you should always start an article by saying what they did and are famous for. A lot of articles are written every day, and to prevent Wikipedia from being crowded with lots of articles that nobody wants to read, we clean them out. Wgolf was only guessing that the person wasn't important enough to belong here. Another thing to prevent them from being deleted is to include a reference of some kind—it doesn't matter if it's messy or something, just a URL you enclose in <ref></ref> tags will be enough to show they matter. The template {{Newpage}} can show you're still actively working on it, and not to delete it.
Sorry you didn't get a chance to finish it. Face-sad.svg Was Mostafa Amini an important person? Wikipedia judges whether people should be in this encyclopedia or not by Wikipedia:Notability (people).

WikiProject Anatomy quarterly newsletter[edit]

WP:Anatomy quarterly update (#2)

Previous edition
Released: First quarter, 2014
Editor: LT910001

Hello WP:ANATOMY participant! This is the second quarterly update of goings-on in WP:ANATOMY, documenting the current state of WP:ANATOMY, current projects and items of interest, and any relevant news. I'd greatly value feedback on this, and if you think I've missed something, or don't wish to receive this again, please leave a note on my talkpage or remove your name from the mailing list

What's new
What's going on
How can I contribute?
  • Reword anatomical jargon: jargon is widespread and not helpful to lay readers.
  • Contribute on our talk page
  • Continue to add sources, content, and improve anatomical articles!
  • Replace images with better images from Wikipedia commons, or if there are too many images, remove some low-quality ones
Quarterly focus - Where to edit?
One of our two new featured images! (Also featured on the Signpost)

On any given week we have at least 4-10 editors making significant contributions to our articles, with probably more than double this making minor edits. As an editor, I am often wondering: with so many articles, where to start? There is so much to be done (as always, on Wikipedia!), and I aim here to provide a comprehensive list of venues within our project. If I've missed any, please let us know on the WikiProject Anatomy talk page.

An editor might edit:

  • By importance. A user can use our assessment table to view articles by their importance and class. The vital articles project provides a list of designated 'Vital articles' for Wikipedia.
  • By popularity. One way to edit is to edit the most popular pages -- the majority of these need help, and editing is sure to bring benefit to many users.
  • By need. There is always cleanup that needs to be done, whether commenting on mergers, adding infoboxes or adding images.
  • By interest. A series of inter-project categories has been developed to help facilitate inter-Wiki and inter-professional collaboration. These categories sort our articles into organs, system, gross anatomy, neuroanatomy, and several other categories. This should offer a buffet of articles for any interested editors! See here for more details.
  • By topic. Wikipedia's anatomical categories may provide impetus, as may editing a suite of related-articles, using a parent article such as ear for direction. A collection of series are slowly being rolled-out, including one for epithelia and for articles about the gastrointestinal wall, which also act as groups of topics. Templates, as documented on our main page, provide a similar categorisation.
  • By demand. Discussions relating to Anatomy are frequent occurrences on the talk pages for WPMED and WP:ANATOMY. Such topics almost always cry out for more editing.
  • By recent changes. One way to choose a destination for editing is to check the recent changes, revert vandalism, integrate/source edits, or generally collaborate in improving articles that are receiving contributions from other editors. This can be found in the external watchlist, or the (recent contributions for Index of Anatomy), a relatively comprehensive on-wiki list.
  • By chance. A user is always welcome to improve articles that they randomly 'bump into' by Wiki-surfing or by having bumped for other reasons into a particular article or topic that needs improvement

A7 deletions[edit]

Re this edit: with an A7 deletion, it's best to advise them to approach the deleting admin first (which is usually the best approach in any case). REFUND is mainly intended for uncontroversial PROD and WP:CSD#G13 restorations, rather than for second-guessing admins, and people asking about A7 deletions will normally get referred to the deleting admin, as I have done in this case, so they can start to feel that they are being given the run-around.

Post-it templates[edit]

Thanks for adopting those. I've just discovered that their author, the long-departed Msikma, made yet another variant of the same idea only four months later: {{sticky}}. Much like the post-it templates, it never saw any real uptake and got forgotten. And then, immediately, {{todo2}} and {{todo3}}. I guess he really, really liked making lists. — Scott talk 22:57, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

Only those two? There were nine todo[N] post-its... (possibly from him, don't have access to deleted contribs). Must have been a very organized person, at any rate.
I plan to adopt them all, as I see some areas for improvement; nobody took down the "under construction" notice on {{todo3}}, parameters could be more uniform between them, and a navbox sidebar might help to group them all (if they don't all get merged into a single template with 50 parameters).
Nice to know that my work is appreciated, even if they're not the most popular items. Thanks. Meteor sandwich yum (talk) 02:44, 11 April 2014 (UTC)

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!

Sorry. I may have left this in the wrong place.[edit]

Hi. It's Redrecks. You left a message about User:71.239.172.110 on my "Talk" page I think it's called?

Anyway the main reason I have come to you, is after reading the message you left, I do understand that some people are a "Bit harsh" and do say something to upset people. Well this User:71.239.172.110 DID get me upset.

I noticed on her page, the many, many people have left messages for her/him/ telling this person that they are not being very nice at all. And that this User is leaving nasty messages left, right and centre. She has also been banned before for being nasty.

I assume she will leave me another message as I have just changed yet another of her spelling mistakes, which is what she had a problem with initially. I was taught that any naming word, such as "Ambassador", "Talk Book", a segment of the show called "Test Shoot", all start with capital letters. as anything lower case is just for everyday words? I corrected her spelling of "talk book", "ambassador" and "test shoot", all naming words, with capitals. This is why she has left such a bitter message.

I have NO trouble what-so-ever if someone changes what I write or do. But leaving such a nasty reason in the Edit and then on my page, is just being spiteful. Other's have changed what I have written, but have been nice to me about it, as I have been nice back to them.

Thank you for leaving your message. I do truly understand and are the last person to ever try and cause a fight.

Probably broke all TfDs[edit]

Refactoring puts the whole XfD at risk. Is there any WP:base for this action? -DePiep (talk) 19:01, 1 May 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, it's called WP:REFACTOR.  — SMcCandlish ¢ ≽ʌⱷ҅ʌ≼  12:57, 18 May 2014 (UTC)

ANI[edit]

Information icon There is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents regarding an issue with which you may have been involved. The thread is TfD discussions "refactored". Thank you. -DePiep (talk) 19:26, 1 May 2014 (UTC)

As you might know, I answered at my talkpage. Nothing against you, I understand you tried to improve the discussions in good faith. But time pressure was essential.
Now, more detail. In TfD discussions, the closing admin has great power in concluding. (I am not an admin). When the closing admin finds something wrong in the process of discussion, he/she can declare the whole TfD discussion procedure wrong (faulty). That means, no argument at all is read, and no changes will follow. This happened to me earlier, so I did want to prevent that (it would mean that four discussions would be concluded "idle" without arguments being read). I have met these situations (an admin closing this way). So I wanted to prevent that.
Your edits shuffled the discussions so heavily, that I could fear such an admin action & conclusion.
The only point I could make against you is this, minor: after I reversed saying "no", you did proceed. -DePiep (talk) 20:55, 2 May 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for being one of Wikipedia's top medical contributors![edit]

Katieh5584's talk page[edit]

Hi, just wanted to let you know that Katieh5584's talk page is also semi-protected. So the template you've added is redundant. 123chess456 (talk) 12:33, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

@123chess456: Hmm, you're right. I was trying to scare would-be vandals away, but users without an account wouldn't be able to edit anyway. I'll remove the padlock icon(s) then. Meteor sandwich yum (talk) 04:36, 12 May 2014 (UTC)
@123chess456: Nah. People don't need to edit her userpage. I noticed your request that the page be unprotected; I'm interested to see how this experiment goes. I'll be stalking.
Sorry for pinging you twice; not feeling very decisive today. Meteor sandwich yum (talk) 04:45, 12 May 2014 (UTC)
Don't worry about it. The talk page is unprotected now. 123chess456 (talk) 12:19, 12 May 2014 (UTC)

User:Kephir/gadgets/rater.js[edit]

I see that you've just added User:Kephir/gadgets/rater.js to Wikipedia:User scripts‎. I tried adding this script to my vector.js to use it, but I get an error TypeError: $(uiBox).draggable is not a function upon visiting a page. Since you added the script, I posted here, but I'll also ping @Kephir: to see what (s)he says.--Dudemanfellabra (talk) 03:38, 23 May 2014 (UTC)

@Dudemanfellabra: Consider that my fault: I was going off on a limb by adding it to list to begin with. The documentation did say "Rater is currently in a somewhat unstable state; it is advisable to check the preview, raw source editor or refresh the talk page to check whether the tool works correctly. Browsers other than Chromium have not been tested."
Sorry about that. I might re-post the bug on Keφr's page, and think I should pull it off the WP:User scripts page as well until the code is debugged. Offhand, looks like it might be a browser incompatibility, but that's only a wild guess. Meteor sandwich yum (talkcontribs) 04:38, 23 May 2014 (UTC)

Strip whitespace problems[edit]

Hi, re this edit. Your problem at {{Currentlybox}} was that by boldfacing inside the {{Strip whitespace}}, you were hiding the whitespace so that it couldn't be stripped. That is, instead of {{Strip whitespace|x='''{{{1}}}'''}} use '''{{Strip whitespace|x={{{1}}}}}''' so that the boldface happens after the whitespace has been removed. --Redrose64 (talk) 09:05, 23 May 2014 (UTC)

Assessment for WikiProject Computer science[edit]

Hi! Thanks for your assessment effort. It looks like there is a problem with the script "Rater" you're using, because it adds the Template:WikiProject Computer science even if it was already present on the talk page. Here is an example of what you get: Talk:Syntactic sugar. It seems that the "Rater" script does not handle this particular WikiProject correctly, so we should fix it or stop using this script for this WikiProject. But I have no idea how to fix this! Cheers.
