Family crest[edit]

(nevermind; there are more people participating, so I think I'll give it some time to ferment.)

I think the best thing to do is just work on the talk page (as you have been doing - which is nice to see). The NPOV tag doesn't have a magical powers, and since so many pages are tagged with it, Family crest probably won't get any special attention because of the tag.--Commander Keane 06:11, 16 February 2006 (UTC)

TARDIS[edit]

I reverted the comment about the acronym TARDIS in that section because this is already covered in the introduction. Also, the contributor put the meaning of the acronym with an exclamation point which is unencyclopedic.--Adam (talk) 21:29, 8 March 2006 (UTC)

Indeed. Your kung-fu truly is strong. --Sneftel 21:52, 8 March 2006 (UTC)

Maxwell[edit]

The issue for Rfd is not the lawsuit. The issue is the lack of particular notability of this particular surgeon . I just added clarification, of an article by an unbiased expert (surgeon): I would like to add context here, since that has been a significant issue. How notable is Dr. Maxwell? In a 2005 article on the History of Lattisimus flap, whatever refinements to the technique Maxwell made, they apparently were not worthy of mentioning in the main body of the paper. Instead, the author discussed the long history of the procedure beginning in 1897. The article credited over a dozen number of physicians with contributions to the procedure. There is absolutely no mention of GP Maxwell's contributions to the procedure in the main body of the article. The only mention at all of Maxwell is a citation of a couple of his publications in the bibliography. None of the surgeons in the article have Wikipedia entries. If they are deserving of discussion by name in the main body of the article on this surgical technique and Maxwell is not, why should Maxwell merit a Wikipedia entry? This Maxwell entry appears to be nothing more than a gift from a loving student to his cherished teacher to burnish his mentor's credentials. See http://www.emedicine.com/plastic/topic137.html

Consider the noteworthiness, in contrast, of another Maxwell, James Clerk Maxwell in a different field. If a surgeon's article on the history of a single medical procedure within a subspecialty of medicine is not worthy of mention, does it really make sense to add an entry on WIkopedia? This diminishes Wikopedia and creates more of an appearance of a free-for-all advertisement or popularity contest, then an encyclopedia.MollyBloom 18:11, 5 June 2006 (UTC)

In Car Experts[edit]

I added a fact about In Car Experts which should make the article more noteworthy. Thanks.--Craigelliott 03:16, 23 February 2007 (UTC)
