Speedy deletion of Ultra low volume[edit]

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. A page you recently created, Ultra low volume, may not conform to some of Wikipedia's guidelines for new pages, so it will shortly be removed (if it hasn't been already). Please use the sandbox for any tests. For more information about creating articles, you may want to read Your first article.

Speedy deletion of Ultra-Low Volume[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Ultra-Low Volume, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article seems to be blatant advertising which only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become an encyclopedia article. Please read our the guidelines on spam as well as the Wikipedia:Business' FAQ for more information.

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 (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 article 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 article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the article does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that a copy be emailed to you. Kkmurray (talk) 01:11, 17 March 2008 (UTC)

April 2008[edit]

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia, and thank you for your contributions. One of the core policies of Wikipedia is that articles should always be written from a neutral point of view. A contribution you made to Organic farming appears to carry a non-neutral point of view, and your edit may have been changed or reverted to correct the problem. Please remember to observe our core policies. Thank you. NeilN talkcontribs 06:05, 5 April 2008 (UTC)

Ecological pesticides[edit]

I replied to you about the ecological pesticides merge thing somewhere, but I can't find it. Basically I want to move all the ecological pesticides into one page. From there we can separate them if necessary, but I'm not sure it will be necessary for at least a little while. Right now there's like 3 or 4 "bio" pesticide articles out there. Too messy.

Pesticide formulation[edit]

A tag has been placed on Pesticide formulation, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing no content to the reader. Please note that external links, "See also" section, book reference, category tag, template tag, interwiki link, rephrasing of the title, or an attempt to contact the subject of the article don't count as content. 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.

Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself. If you plan to expand the article, you can request that administrators wait a while for you to add contextual material. To do this, affix the template {{hangon}} to the page and state your intention on the article's talk page. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this.

reply[edit]

I wasn't fast enough before - this was indeed a bit of a stub, but surely a subject like this didn't warrant deletion!

Many thanks for recent edits (23 May) - cleaned up enough yet?

rgds Roy Bateman (talk) 15:41, 23 May 2008 (UTC)

Looks like you got caught up in a bit of beurocracy there Roy. Don't take it personally, administrators have to deal with a lot of dubious material everyday, and a legitimate but short article can sometimes be deleted in the crossfire. Since the article has been fleshed out, it's unlikely to be deleted again. Best regards, Jefffire (talk) 15:46, 23 May 2008 (UTC)

There's a lack of common sense in Wikipedia. ImpIn | {talk - contribs} 16:52, 23 May 2008 (UTC)

CCD, etc.[edit]

Given that there have been experiments showing symptoms similar to CCD from some neonics, there is at least a reason to not rule out pesticide effects in the CCD phenomenon. Not that pesticides cause CCD, but that pesticide effects might be confused with CCD. Of all the "alternative theories" that people have come up with, the pesticide one is about the only one that can't truly be ruled out entirely, but only for this reason - it certainly can't explain all the CCD cases from the 1970's and such, since that whole class of pesticides didn't even exist back then. But that doesn't mean they can't be playing a role now in creating problems for bees. It would be nice if someone would put this in print (that neonic poisoning could be mistaken for CCD), in which case we could remove the pesticide section from the CCD article and redirect readers elsewhere. In the meanwhile, good going with the edits. Dyanega (talk) 20:29, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

Fungus[edit]

Hi, I've reverted your spelling changes of mould->mold in the Fungus article. The article is written using American English, and according to the WP:MOS, "When an article has evolved sufficiently for it to be clear which variety it employs, the whole article should continue to conform to that variety, unless there are reasons for changing it based on strong national ties to the topic." Further, it is not acceptable to change the spelling of titles of the sources (even if not consistent with the style of English spelling used in the Wiki article). Your other changes look fine (to me), but there are other editors who watch the article that might disagree later :) Cheers, Sasata (talk) 19:11, 21 October 2010 (UTC)

OK Sasata - I confess that, though I have American mycologist friends I had never come across "mold" before and thought it was a mis-spelling!! I added a spelling differences phrase at the beginning for the benefit of others like me on this side of the pond. FYI I am about to do some edits to biological pesticides and set up a Lecanicillium lecanii page - can't believe it hasn't been done already - pointed out to me by confused students. Any peer review much appreciated. Brgds Roy Bateman (talk) 16:28, 24 October 2010 (UTC)

Lecanicillium lecanii[edit]

Hi, I was wanting to change the first sentence in the article from:

I was wondering if you could please fill in the XXXX with the year that it got the official name change. The edit, of course, is for the purpose of reducing the recentism feel. Thanks Passionless -Talk 01:39, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

Oh, I just saw your edit summary, is 2001 the XXXX? Passionless -Talk 01:40, 14 February 2011 (UTC)
