Your deletion request[edit]

Thanks for tagging the articles, the second article has been deleted as well. Let me know if there is anything else I can help with. Best wishes, --TeaDrinker (talk) 11:39, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

FYI: I sent you an email[edit]


I sent you an email asking if you'd be willing to talking to me about Huntington's Disease and CAG repeat disorders. The email page recommended leaving you a note on your talk page, so . . . here's a note.  ;o)

Suggestion of a new great shoe resource[edit]

I just had a suggestion of great shoe history external link. You can read about it in the [Talk:Shoe] section. I think it's a great resource.--It2shoes (talk) 11:07, 9 February 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for the enthousiasm. However i only made a small grammatical correction in the article and have no involvement in the subject (apart from wearing them every day :-). But if you could infuse some of the info from this website, i'm sure it would be appreciated. PizzaMan (talk) 18:06, 11 February 2010 (UTC)

Well Here is some info: It's an online fashion museum that features vintage shoes and explains the cultural temperament associated with various shoe styles throughout the 20th century. It offers a decade-by-decade look at shoes and their place in fashion and culture from the 1900s-1990s. For each decade you can read an essay, view examples of footwear and see advertisements from the period. There are also three feature articles: Dangerous Shoes, Ga-Ga for Gaza [Gaza Bowen, shoemaker], and Ruby Slippers. Includes a pre-20th century chronology of "great moments in shoe history.--It2shoes (talk) 13:20, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

Dear It2Shoes, My apologies for not being clear, but i am not interested in the matter. It sounds like a great website for someone who wants to know all about shoes, and i'm sure those people will appreciate your suggestion of a link. I've put a welcome notice on your talk page that links to some information about wikipedia. Also, i would like to invite you to be bold and edit anything that you think should be edited. For the shoe pagethat's not possible, so you'll have to wait until someone else makes the edit. The place to suggest the is the talk page of shoe, as you did (also suggesting it here is not necessary). PizzaMan (talk) 18:47, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Kin (phone)[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Kin (phone) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing little or no context to the reader. 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. You may wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you. mark nutley (talk) 17:36, 12 April 2010 (UTC)

Wiki Med[edit]


I'm contacting you because, as a participant at Wikiproject Medicine, you may be interested in a new non-profit organization we're forming at m:WikiMed. Our purpose is to help improve the range and quality of free online medical content, and we'll be working with like-minded organizations, such as the World Health Organization, professional and scholarly societies, medical schools, governments and NGOs - including Translators Without Borders.

Hope to see you there! Anthonyhcole (talk) 04:31, 20 December 2012 (UTC)

Sounds good. I'm very busy, so a board position is not an option atm, but i'll try to contribute. I've ollaborated with Jacob de Wolff a little in the past. PizzaMan (talk) 09:59, 20 December 2012 (UTC)

The Wikipedia Library now offering accounts from Cochrane Collaboration (sign up!)[edit]

The Wikipedia Library gets Wikipedia editors free access to reliable sources that are behind paywalls. Because you are signed on as a medical editor, I thought you'd want to know about our most recent donation from Cochrane Collaboration.

  • Cochrane Collaboration is an independent medical nonprofit organization that conducts systematic reviews of randomized controlled trials of health-care interventions, which it then publishes in the Cochrane Library.
  • Cochrane has generously agreed to give free, full-access accounts to 100 medical editors. Individual access would otherwise cost between $300 and $800 per account.
  • If you are still active as a medical editor, come and sign up :)

Cheers, Ocaasi t | c 20:27, 16 June 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for September 4[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Omate TrueSmart, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Android (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Feature – Ebola articles[edit]

Electron micrograph of an Ebola virus virion

During August we have translated Disease and it is now live in more than 60 different languages! To help us focus on African languages Rubric has donated a large number of articles in languages we haven't previously reached–so a shout out them, and Ian Henderson from Rubric who's joined us here at Wikipedia. We're very happy for our continued collaboration with both Rubric and Translators without Borders!

Just some of our over 60 translations:
New roles and guides!

At Wikimania there were so many enthusiastic people jumping at the chance to help out the Medical Translation Project, but unfortunately not all of them knew how to get started. That is why we've been spending considerable time writing and improving guides! They are finally live, and you can find them at our home-page!

New sign up page!

We're proud to announce a new sign up page at WP:MTSIGNUP! The old page was getting cluttered and didn't allow you to speficy a role. The new page should be easier to sign up to, and easier to navigate so that we can reach you when you're needed!

Style guides for translations

Translations are of both full articles and shorter articles continues. The process where short articles are chosen for translation hasn't been fully transparent. In the coming months we hope to have a first guide, so that anyone who writes medical or health articles knows how to get their articles to a standard where they can be translated! That's why we're currently working on medical good lede criteria! The idea is to have a similar peer review process to good article nominations, but only for ledes.

I would strongly urge you to read WP:BLP and WP:NPOV in full, especially before making any more claims regarding living persons. You may also want to self-revert your edit as a show of good faith before someone else reverts it. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. Cheers! Woodroar (talk) 11:11, 16 October 2014 (UTC)

I'm aware of those. In fact i applied them by removing opinions. The real neutral information would come from her disclosing how she spent her funds. Citing an established source's opinions on how she spent the money does not provide real neutral or objective information. What's worse: there is not a single opinion that thinks she didn't spend the money well. Either the discussion is represented with a bias or there is no discussion making the whole paragraph moot.

October 2014[edit]

Do not make any more comments about other contributors, as you did at Talk:Tropes vs. Women in Video Games. This is a violation of assume good faith and no personal attacks. Additionally, engaging in general discussion of the topic is inappropriate and violates the talk page guidelines and the WP:NOTAFORUM policy. Keep your comments focused on specific improvements to the content of the article and there won't be any further problems. Thanks,--Cúchullain t/c 16:33, 21 October 2014 (UTC)

You're right that i shouldn't have done that, but calling a professor who even cites scientific sources a not reputable source as opposed to "reputable sources" that neither speak with scientific authority nor cite actual scientific sources, still smells fishy to me. I re-wrote my comment. I don't know the policy on that, but is it ok that i left out your warning in the corrected version? Alternatively i could have let the old comment stand and added a new one, but i agree that the personal part doesn't progress the dialogue.PizzaMan (♨♨) 17:20, 21 October 2014 (UTC)
It's totally okay to rephrase your statements when there's a problem. However, your response still got into what you think other users are doing, which is not appropriate. Please avoid this in the future and discuss content only.--Cúchullain t/c 20:47, 21 October 2014 (UTC)
Please explain that. I consider responding to what others are saying not only an appropriate way to have a discussion, but the best. For example, if i think someone is sidestepping my point, surely i can point that out? Discouraging that in a discussion would encourage people to use fallacies or syllogistically incorrect reasoning. PizzaMan (♨♨) 21:39, 21 October 2014 (UTC)
You are welcome to discuss content matters productively, and if you think someone has misunderstood the material or sources it's fine to point it out. However, your comment said "Perhaps you only read positive press about her, that's your good right..." which is a personal comment about another editor. What other people do or believe is of no importance to you. Avoid making comments like that in the future.--Cúchullain t/c 21:54, 21 October 2014 (UTC)
Granted that i should have formulated that differently. But i think you're pulling it out of context a bit. First of all it's not a negative accusation, rather it's intended as a question as to where this editor got their opinion. Second, i'm simply trying to distinguish his/her opinion (stated as fact) about the "sheer amount of positive press" from the impression i get when just randomly typing "sarkeesian criticism" in google (it's mostly about criticism against sarkeesian, rather than the criticism by sarkeesian) or "sarkeesian" in youtube. To me, that shows an obvious discrepance between the "correct" published sources and the more critical sources which are often self published and voice a major part, if not the majority, of the public opinion. So yes, it was also intended to invite Cuchullain into taking note of that. As a sidenote: dit you notice it's a single-subject account? PizzaMan (♨♨) 11:17, 23 October 2014 (UTC)
Comment on the content, not the contributor, period. And it doesn't matter what appears in self-published sources, especially when discussing living people are involved. With some specific exceptions, we exclusively use published sources. The sooner you learn that, the better.--Cúchullain t/c 13:18, 23 October 2014 (UTC)
