Autosomal recessive juvenile Parkinson disease[edit]

Hi Richard, I nearly proposed your new page for speedy deletion until I realised from your other contributions that you are a biologist and a serious contributor to the encyclopedia. Have you considered preparing your articles first in your sandbox? By doing so, you will be posting reasonably complete new articles, complete with all their page elements and references, and avoiding the risk of deletion by new page patrollers who do not do background checks. If you need any help on creating new pages, don't hesitate to ask me on my talk page.--Kudpung (talk) 06:24, 22 July 2010 (UTC)

Hi. I have never created a new stub before and didn't know there was a minimum amount of info needed. I will make the stub in my sandbox and post it to the encyclopedia when it's ready. Thanks for the advice! richard.decal (talk) 04:53, 23 July 2010 (UTC)

trouble with new references section[edit]

{{help me}} I added the first ref to the Josh Tickell article and made a new references section, but half the article is hidden and a big error shows up. I can't seem to make it go away, what did I do wrong? Richard☺Decal (talk) 09:58, 11 April 2011 (UTC)

Hi Richard. Most markup tags tag in computer languages that work by an opening tag followed by a closing tag use forward slashes, not backslashes. You wrote <ref>citation<\ref> rather than </ref>.--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 10:12, 11 April 2011 (UTC)
D'oh! Thanks for the help. Richard☺Decal (talk) 01:24, 12 April 2011 (UTC)

reporting a vandal[edit]

This help request has been answered. If you need more help, place a new {{help me}} request on this page followed by your questions, contact the responding user(s) directly on their user talk page, or consider visiting the Teahouse.

I am looking for someone to double check if I reported a vandal correctly. User_talk:207.74.27.71 is a repeat vandal, so I followed the instructions on Wikipedia:Administrator_intervention_against_vandalism... did I do it right, or am I expected to do more? Thanks Richard☺Decal (talk) 21:32, 10 May 2011 (UTC)

Looks fine, and it also appears the vandal has been blocked as a result of your block. Thanks for the report! --joe deckertalk to me 21:47, 10 May 2011 (UTC)

edit article "Cold Fusion" Nine Refefences to Pathological Science Should Be Moved to Historical Footnotes[edit]

To improve the article:

1) Wiki needs to view it as science.

2) Wiki needs to recognize which scientific journals are utilized and sourced by scientists in this field of physics.

I predict a tremendous increase in the readability of the article.

Query to the scientific community: To the Directors of Physics Departments,

LENR - Low Energy Nuclear Reaction and Widom Larson Theory, aka Condensed Matter Nuclear or Lattice Enabled Nuclear; historically misnamed "Cold Fusion"

1) Is this science or pathological science?

2) Do you offer a class in this discipline? If so, please provide information.

3) Are you developing a curriculum of this science? If so, when will you offer it?

4) What peer review journals do you utilize or source in this field?

Richard sir, P>S> 1) Any suggestions or criticisms before I move forward with this? 2) Is this direction of query able to yield opinions the Wikipedia forum on Cold Fusion may value? Thank you for your time, Gregory Goble gbgoble@gmail.com (415) 724-6702--Gregory Goble (talk) 00:49, 27 December 2011 (UTC)
