Ulnar tunnel syndrome[edit]

Hello, thanks for alerting me of your changes. I just wanted to respond to your revert and maybe find a middle ground. I moved the page from "Guyon's canal syndrome" to "Ulnar Tunnel Syndrome" because it is preferred/non-eponymous terminology. In addition, I changed the section entitled "Pathology" because its contents was describing classification. Lastly, I altered the contents of the said section because the previous contents was totally un-cited. Thoughts? Dr G (talk) 05:34, 8 September 2014 (UTC)

I think that was a sensible thing to do. Make sure that other mentions of the syndrome are changed as well, such as Ulnar_nerve_entrapment#Guyon.27s_canal_syndrome, etc. Also, be sure to make it clear in the article that Ulnar Tunnel Syndrome is preferred (listed first), with 'also known as' for the Guyon's nomenclature, etc. Happy editing! --Slazenger (Contact Me) 06:01, 8 September 2014 (UTC)

we are an online store[edit]

why cant our website name can be published here? — Preceding unsigned comment added by VijayQusec (talkcontribs) 06:10, 8 September 2014 (UTC)

Your addition to the article was purely promotional in nature, directly linking to your site for advertising purposes. You addition goes against WP:EL (especially WP:ADV) as well as WP:NOTPROMOTION. Lastly, you clearly have a conflict of interest with the topic. Hope this helps. --Slazenger (Contact Me) 06:17, 8 September 2014 (UTC)

Hi You are taking it too personal? why not this articles can be listed in online grocers, as we are an online grocery store? Please add it, Dont be so rude, — Preceding unsigned comment added by VijayQusec (talkcontribs) 07:59, 8 September 2014 (UTC)

It's not a case of being rude, it's a case of not allowing Wikipedia to serve as your personal advertisement for your business. If you would take the time to actually look into the resources I linked above, you would have a clear understanding of how your entries violated what is allowable on Wikipedia. --Slazenger (Contact Me) 15:20, 9 September 2014 (UTC)

Copyright checks when performing AfC reviews[edit]

Hello Slazenger. This message is part of a mass mailing to people who appear active in reviewing articles for creation submissions. First of all, thank you for taking part in this important work! I'm sorry this message is a form letter – it really was the only way I could think of to covey the issue economically. Of course, this also means that I have not looked to see whether the matter is applicable to you in particular.

The issue is in rather large numbers of copyright violations ("copyvios") making their way through AfC reviews without being detected (even when easy to check, and even when hallmarks of copyvios in the text that should have invited a check, were glaring). A second issue is the correct method of dealing with them when discovered.

If you don't do so already, I'd like to ask for your to help with this problem by taking on the practice of performing a copyvio check as the first step in any AfC review. The most basic method is to simply copy a unique but small portion of text from the draft body and run it through a search engine in quotation marks. Trying this from two different paragraphs is recommended. (If you have any question about whether the text was copied from the draft, rather than the other way around (a "backwards copyvio"), the Wayback Machine is very useful for sussing that out.)

If you do find a copyright violation, please do not decline the draft on that basis. Copyright violations need to be dealt with immediately as they may harm those whose content is being used and expose Wikipedia to potential legal liability. If the draft is substantially a copyvio, and there's no non-infringing version to revert to, please mark the page for speedy deletion right away using {{db-g12|url=URL of source}}. If there is an assertion of permission, please replace the draft article's content with {{subst:copyvio|url=URL of source}}.

Some of the more obvious indicia of a copyvio are use of the first person ("we/our/us..."), phrases like "this site", or apparent artifacts of content written for somewhere else ("top", "go to top", "next page", "click here", use of smartquotes, etc.); inappropriate tone of voice, such as an overly informal tone or a very slanted marketing voice with weasel words; including intellectual property symbols (™,®); and blocks of text being added all at once in a finished form with no misspellings or other errors.

I hope this message finds you well and thanks again you for your efforts in this area. Best regards--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 02:20, 18 November 2014 (UTC).
