Re: Kyrra Grunnsund[edit]

Hi, thanks for letting me know. I'll take a proper look at it tomorrow. FWIW, he did indeed receive a Medal of the Order of Australia and an Australian Sports Medal, and this is his profile from the International Paralympic Committee. Graham87 15:18, 21 June 2012 (UTC)

How's that? :-) Graham87 09:12, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
I've copyedited your talk page notice; hope you don't mind. Graham87 09:14, 22 June 2012 (UTC)

DYK nomination of Methylazoxymethanol acetate[edit]

Symbol question.svg Hello! Your submission of Methylazoxymethanol acetate at the Did You Know nominations page has been reviewed, and there still are some issues that may need to be clarified. Please review the comment(s) underneath your nomination's entry and respond there as soon as possible. Thank you for contributing to Did You Know! Cambalachero (talk) 22:07, 21 June 2012 (UTC)

Humphrey or Humphry?[edit]

"Humphry" was a common variant spelling of "Humphrey" in Lloyd's day. For instance, Humphry Davy was a contemporary of Lloyd, and that (to modern eyes) odd-seeming spelling of Davy's name is definitely the correct one. Do you have proof one way or another of the spelling of Lloyd's name?

Thanks! Stigmatella aurantiaca (talk) 21:45, 23 June 2012 (UTC)

Well this profile from Trinity College, Dublin, where he was provost, uses Humphrey, but if you have sources that use the other spelling, I've no problem with changing it. Maybe we should continue the conversation on the talk page of the article if this doesn't resolve it. Quasihuman (talk • contribs) 21:57, 23 June 2012 (UTC)
I've been researching this for the last several minutes and found this: Elementary treatise on the wave theory of light. So it looks like "Humphrey" is correct. At the time I was working on this article, two of my sources used the "Humphry" spelling, and two used "Humphrey" so I pretty much flipped a coin. Obviously not a reliable means of scholarship... Cheers! :-) Stigmatella aurantiaca (talk) 22:15, 23 June 2012 (UTC)
Great find! Thanks. Quasihuman (talk • contribs) 22:48, 23 June 2012 (UTC)

Good Articles.[edit]

Good Articles ( My edits)

This was posted and I do not think it actually went through :P

Hey there. I am failing them due to the Citations. You need the citations in certain areas correct?

I try to add them to the hold list but it is to much in the Citation errors so I have to.

I have only approved only 1 article and I have read that one early this afternoon while pulling some information.

Thanks

AFC Backlog[edit]

Articles for Creation urgently needs YOUR help!
AFC-Logo.png

Articles for Creation is desperately short of reviewers! We are looking for urgent help, from experienced editors, in reviewing submissions in the pending submissions queue. Currently there are 790 submissions waiting to be reviewed and many help requests at our Help Desk.

Do you have what it takes?
  1. Are you familiar with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines?
  2. Do you know what Wikipedia is and is not?
  3. Do you have a working knowledge of the Manual of Style, particularly article naming conventions?
  4. Are you autoconfirmed?
  5. Can you review submissions based on their individual merits?

If the answer to these questions is yes, then please read the reviewing instructions and donate a little of your time to helping tackle the backlog. You might wish to add {{AFC status}} or {{AfC Defcon}} to your userpage, which will alert you to the number of open submissions.

PS: we have a great AFC helper script at User:Timotheus Canens/afchelper4.js which helps in reviewing in just few edits easily!

We would greatly appreciate your help. Currently, only a small handful of users are reviewing articles. Any help, even if it's just 2 or 3 reviews, it would be extremely beneficial.
On behalf of the Articles for Creation project,
TheSpecialUser TSU

Heads up[edit]

In case you didn't notice, Deunick's GA reviews have been restarted. Malleus Fatuorum is reviewing the Charles Boycott article and has made some comments at the review that I've responded to. Graham87 05:53, 20 August 2012 (UTC)

My condolences![edit]

I'm sorry to see no one has picked up your good article nomination at Wikipedia:Good_article_nominations#Biology_and_medicine from July yet! If I at least get the ball rolling by providing some feedback on the talk page, might you be interested in providing some feedback at Wikipedia:Peer_review/Interstitial_cystitis/archive1? I'll notify that editor of this thread. Maybe you two could do some sort of trade. They also want to get interstitial cystitis up to good article status. Best wishes. Biosthmors (talk) 20:54, 19 November 2012 (UTC)

Hi Biosthmors, thanks for the kind condolences (luckily much of the waiting time coincided with being busy in real life). My time available to edit is limited right now, however, I'd be happy to review that article, as long as the other editor doesn't mind waiting a few days for a review. Also, I haven't done much content reviewing before (except for DYK, which is a different kettle of fish). Thanks, Quasihuman (talk • contribs) 23:03, 19 November 2012 (UTC)
Hi Quasihuman, I would certainly be waiting to wait a few days to better accommodate you. Just let me know when you are ready. Thanks! TylerDurden8823 (talk) 01:40, 22 November 2012 (UTC)
So I left some comments for you at Talk:Animal models of schizophrenia. There aren't many, but I can provide more later if you wish. FYI, I should probably caution you that I have been criticized for going over GA-level standards when providing feedback for good article candidates. =) Best wishes. Biosthmors (talk) 21:37, 23 November 2012 (UTC)
I hope you thought my comments were helpful. I just commented again and I did a copy edit to the first sentence too. Maybe you like it, maybe you don't. =) Biosthmors (talk) 17:12, 3 December 2012 (UTC)
Sorry for my lack of responsiveness to your comments, I have exams in the next two weeks. After them, your comments will get the attention they deserve. Quasihuman (talk • contribs) 23:01, 3 December 2012 (UTC)
Good luck on your exams! Biosthmors (talk) 23:17, 3 December 2012 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Phil Pickett, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Electric Dreams and It's A Miracle (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.

Hi,


There may be controversies surrounding people and people's points of view may be diverse. However, Dr. Zhi Gang Sha received as I noted in my own posting, the Martin Luther King Jr. Commemorative Commission award (given out by the US government for peace and humanitarian efforts), so I believe these things should be noted in his biographical sketch. He was also cited by Boston Globe as 'peace leader of the world'. So I guess the current posting under his biographical sketch should be maintained under 'Controversies' and my posting should perhaps become the main article, since it is an official review of his activity, accurate and taken from one of his published books. I am also new in posting on wikipedia so I may make some editing mistakes - I accidentally removed the citations from the controversies-section and I apologize for that, it was unintentional.

Thank you for your time,

Your GA nomination of Animal models of schizophrenia[edit]

The article Animal models of schizophrenia you nominated as a good article has been placed on hold Symbol wait.svg. The article is close to meeting the good article criteria, but there are some minor changes or clarifications needed to be addressed. If these are fixed within 7 days, the article will pass, otherwise it will fail. See Talk:Animal models of schizophrenia for things which need to be addressed.

Editor Review[edit]

I am currently cleaning up the backlog over at Editor Review and I found this in the backlog. As it is no longer posted on the main page at Editor Review, I was wondering if I should remove it from the backlogs and put it to rest or if I should repost it for community review. I will remove it from the backlogs three days from now if I am not given a response.—cyberpower OfflineHappy 2013 22:54, 1 January 2013 (UTC)
