Kitten[edit]

Hey, thanks for the great edit to our capital markets page. I hope you like this wiki kitten, they're great for watching over user pages. FeydHuxtable (talk) 18:40, 29 January 2013 (UTC)

Nice work[edit]

Very nice work with the cleanup that you did here. Are you a professional editor? LK (talk) 08:05, 5 February 2013 (UTC)

No, although I'm sure I could rival any editor for pedantry. For the moment, I'm just a college student (in economics, actually). But I'm pleased that you would think so! —Neil 00:54, 6 February 2013 (UTC)

Removed link "Adaptogens and their effect on Cortisol and ACTH; blood tests included[edit]

Neil, I added that link to justify my claims, that is, the line I added to the article adrenocorticotropic hormone: Adaptogens, especially Ashwagandha, may also help lower elevated ACTH levels, by normalizing endocrine system function.

Maybe my site isn't a medical journal but my claims are true since I speak from experience. I also have legit and verified lab results that support my claims.

I though that wikipedia is information sharing site and that my experience could help someone. External links from wikipedia have nofollow tag anyway. So, I won't have much use from it.

Now, I see that citation is needed. Should I add a link to citation or leave it as it is. (talk) 19:45, 29 Septemeber 2013


Thanks for explaining it, Neal. I could understand the fact if they reject non-proven claims with lack of evidence but mine is backed up with experience and plenty of evidence. However, it is not your fault. You are just acting as wikipedia policy dictates.

If reliable source could verify my claims, we wouldn't have this problem. Is there any way I could do this? Maybe submit my informations to organization that would looked into it? (talk) 21:58, 29 Septemeber 2013 — Preceding unsigned comment added by 93.137.25.123 (talk)


Well, I agree with that. I have just one question. Could I add a link to references on adrenocorticotropic hormone article? Would that be violation of policy? I tried to do it before but couldn't embed it properly.

I believe the answer is probably no. Anyway, thanks for everything. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 93.137.25.123 (talk) 21:21, 29 September 2013 (UTC)

Third Opinion Award[edit]

The Third Opinion Award The Third Opinion Award
Neil has been most helpful in mediating a recent dispute. He set a fair and reasonable criteria for submitting strong reliable sources which helped us disregard tertiary sources and focus on what well renowned historians actually said about the matter. He invested much of his time in not only analyzing both sides of the conflict but in doing additional research to gain a thorough understanding of the time period in question. He sets an example to what any mediator should aspire to be. — Scoobydunk (talk) 00:35, 9 October 2013 (UTC)

British Rail Class 67[edit]

Re: [1], please see corresponding log for [2]. (Why this failed to get nuked at the same time, I don't know). —Sladen (talk) 22:28, 7 September 2014 (UTC)

  • Sladen, I certainly have no objection to reverting those moves. But I don't see why it's necessary to delete the redirects—I can certainly imagine that someone might type in "British Rail class 67" when they want this article, and it does no harm to have a redirect sitting around even if it's rarely used. Anyway, R3 is only for "implausible typos or misnomers", and the fact that a user tried to move the page there shows it's at least plausible as an alternative name.—Neil P. Quinn (talk) 22:43, 7 September 2014 (UTC)

chagatai khanate[edit]

you removed reference on that page why? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.209.191.163 (talk) 08:52, 13 September 2014 (UTC)

Some bubble tea for you![edit]

Bubble Tea.png Thanks for the "Thanks"! It's been quite a while since I've edited Wikepeida.... so many new social features (eg. "Thanks", "WikiLove", etc). Brianrisk (talk) 20:14, 28 September 2014 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

WikiDefender Barnstar Hires.png The Defender of the Wiki Barnstar
Thanks for doing such a thorough investigation and documenting your findings on this ongoing issue. It's nice to have something to link to in the block logs, etc. I will try to keep it updated :) Cheers — MusikAnimal talk 05:17, 29 September 2014 (UTC)

@MusikAnimal: Thanks for the barnstar! It helps reassure me that I'm not obsessive for documenting like this :) Do you know of a central location for logs like this? Seems like it might be hard for others to find in my userspace.—Neil P. Quinn (talk) 16:09, 29 September 2014 (UTC)

There is a Wikipedia:Long-term abuse, so you could move your report to Wikipedia:Long-term abuse/Schwabacher vandal. The "Cautionary notes" you see at the top may not apply so much to our vandal, as they aren't out for that kind of recognition, but rather the patent which is the subject of their vandalism. — MusikAnimal talk 16:23, 29 September 2014 (UTC)
@MusikAnimal: Okay, thanks, that's exactly what I was looking for. I've removed some of the details, to better deny recognition, and moved it there (with the appropriate transclusions and listings). Let me know if there's anything I should do differently. —Neil P. Quinn (talk) 16:59, 29 September 2014 (UTC)
Looks great. Thanks again for putting this together! — MusikAnimal talk 17:13, 29 September 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for September 29[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Timur, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Ghazi.

Cambia Health Solutions[edit]

Neal, Thank you for your interest in accurate Wikipedia entries, as well as in Cambia Health Solutions and our subsidiary, Regence Health Insurance Company.

We have some suggested edits that will make the entry more accurate, and bring us back into compliance with our agreement with the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association (BCBSA) about not mixing Regence/Blue and Cambia brands. If you would like to make these edits, that is greatly appreciated.

If you are interested, we certainly invite you to create a separate Cambia Health Solutions page, being careful not to mention Regence or The Blues® in it. We think Cambia is a worthy topic, as it houses many subsidiaries and investments that bring a new retail focus to health care that is ahead of what much of the health care industry is doing. You can find more information at www.cambiahealth.com. Regards, Regena Frieden Cambia Health Solutions Regenafrieden (talk) 00:28, 28 October 2014 (UTC)

You're welcome[edit]

I appreciate the thanks at my attempt at compromise at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/requests/Fuck: Word Taboo and Protecting Our First Amendment Liberties.

Unfortunately, it seems David Levy and Imzadi1979 had opposing opinions about the blurb text, and my tweak caused David Levy to shift from support to oppose, so I tweaked it again to remove WP:Easter eggs and that was satisfactory to David Levy again, but not to Imzadi1979.

As you can probably see from reading Wikipedia:Today's featured article/requests/Fuck: Word Taboo and Protecting Our First Amendment Liberties, it's been incredibly difficult for me to try to please multiple different parties at that debate.

Thanks again,

Cirt (talk) 23:08, 2 November 2014 (UTC)

  • @Cirt: Thanks for the message! I didn't realize you had changed the blurb further; I honestly like it even better now. Either way, I support the request; I just wanted to let you know I thought the revision struck an excellent balance. I wish you luck trying to build consensus, and thanks again for writing the article! —Neil P. Quinn (talk) 23:34, 2 November 2014 (UTC)
    • Thanks for the luck, and thanks for the kind words about the quality of the blurb and the article. I'm having fun with a new Quality improvement project related to freedom of speech and censorship. :) — Cirt (talk) 23:44, 2 November 2014 (UTC)

Request on 20:09:08, 17 December 2014 for assistance on AfC submission by M.Renae[edit]


Hi Neil, I just added a few more sources to the Simply Gluten Free Magazine page and I was hoping I could get your opinion and maybe some assistance with finding additional sources, if they are still needed. The magazine's editor-in-chief has been interviewed and featured in many publications, but I've found those are often geared more towards her than the magazine itself. Please let me know if the sources are sufficient at this time or if it still needs more. I didn't want to submit it again for review until I get a second opinion.

Thank you! --M.Renae (talk) 20:09, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
