Hi, I see you are interested in drawing structure - could I please ask you to have a read of Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Chemistry/Structure drawing, some important items to note are that we would prefer if you could only upload to commons, it's taken us 12 months to clear out several thousand structures from en-Wiki - they can be better categorised at commons, but sadly no easy search. Also if possible could you use png or (even better) svg format. We won't be moving the jpg and gif to commons, they are all being re-drawn by volunteers in svg format first. Ways of getting svgs files are in the page I quoted. Thanks for your attention, and your contribution to Wikipedia.  Ronhjones  (Talk) 01:47, 10 February 2012 (UTC)

P.S. License for structures is always {{PD-chem}} as there is no originality.  Ronhjones  (Talk) 01:48, 10 February 2012 (UTC)

MXE article[edit]

I think the MXE article deserves a QSAR pharmacology section explaining how it's inception was based on known molecules. I think simply deleting what I did was not constructive. If you feel you would be able to improve on what I have done then that is fair enough but simply deleting what I did I find not helpful. If you read the VICE article where the man who lost a hand who is said to have invented MXE actually believes that the compound is opioidergic. I feel it was necessary to draw on the example of 3-OH-pcp. I gave a reference that stated that 3-OH-pcp is an opioid antagonist. Therefore I did give a reference to 3-OH-pcp which is relevent to the discssion of what the pharmacology of MXE might be expected to be like.--Aschwole (talk) 11:36, 10 April 2012 (UTC)

I agree with you, and the edit has a lot of potential, but the tenses were still off and the information needed citations. If you want to put it into the talk there and give it some sources I'll be happy to help format and fix the syntax but as it is, it isn't quite ready to be added to the main article. Testem (talk) 12:26, 10 April 2012 (UTC)
This discussion should probably take place at Talk:Methoxetamine, so others can weigh in. Pmillerrhodes TalkContrib 17:32, 10 April 2012 (UTC)

Interesting drugs: MPEP link[edit]

Just a heads up: The link for MPEP on your user page redirects to Manual of Patent Examining Procedure, not 2-Methyl-6-(phenylethynyl)pyridine. Pmillerrhodes TalkContrib 17:52, 10 April 2012 (UTC)

Haha, thanks Testem (talk) 22:54, 10 April 2012 (UTC)

Nitrogen narcosis[edit]

You placed a {{citation needed}} tag in the lead (opening paragraphs) of Nitrogen narcosis. You may not be aware, but the lead of a developed article summarises the body of text that follows it, and it is not normally a requirement to source summary statements in the lead when they are already directly sourced in the main text. You will find that most Featured Articles have no citations in the lead for this reason.

In this case, the statement "Although divers can learn to cope with some of these effects, it is not possible to develop a tolerance" is a direct summary of the last sentence of the third paragraph in the Prevention section: "Scientific evidence does not show that a diver can train to overcome any measure of narcosis at a given depth or become tolerant of it." which is clearly sourced to:

  • Hamilton, K; Laliberté, MF; Heslegrave, R (1992). "Subjective and behavioral effects associated with repeated exposure to narcosis". Aviation, space, and environmental medicine 63 (10): 865–9. PMID 1417647. 

If you insist on challenging the sentence in the lead, I will repeat the citation, although I do not feel this is necessary and is bound to be reversed when the article goes to Featured article candidature. I would much prefer it if you were to revert your tagging, but that's up to you. --RexxS (talk) 22:25, 28 October 2012 (UTC)

I did not know that and am grateful to you for pointing this out to me. I'll revert the tag. Testem (talk) 22:27, 28 October 2012 (UTC)
Thanks very much. I'm always happy to share whatever I've learned here, so please feel free to drop me a note on my talk page if you think there's anything I can help you with. Cheers --RexxS (talk) 22:46, 28 October 2012 (UTC)

Thanks so much for creating and developing testing reagent pages. That's the kind of topic that's really important and often overlooked. Wikipedia is usually the first place people come for information on things like that! Exercisephys (talk) 13:44, 26 September 2013 (UTC)

Oxygen scavenger[edit]

Hi. I've sorted out your speedy request. It was coming up at CSD, but there was no template visible on the page. I've moved your request to above the redirect instruction, and it displays now. Looks like things below the redir are ignored for display, but things above take precedence and cancel out the redir. Something new I've learned there... Peridon (talk) 13:06, 21 October 2013 (UTC)

Superb, thanks. I didn't know that either. Testem (talk) 14:12, 21 October 2013 (UTC)

About your edits of the "Sour gas" article[edit]

Testem, I am questioning why you felt that the "Sour gas" article needed the section you added on "Solution based acid gas removal". The previous paragraph to your section has a link to the "Amine gas treating" article which essentially covers the same material as you added into to the "Sour gas" article. If you believe that the "Amine gas treating" article needs improving, then feel free to improve it ... but why add a new section to the "Sour gas" article covering the same ground? ... Regards, mbeychok (talk) 17:16, 23 October 2013 (UTC)

Clearly I just wasn't thinking. I'll revert it. Just because it had info about methods for treating but didn't include amine techniques. Selexol is also not an amine.Testem (talk) 17:20, 23 October 2013 (UTC)

unsourced content[edit]

hi, as per this dif, actually deleting unsourced content is just fine as per WP:V. it is a style thing. I also note that as per WP:PROVEIT, "Any material lacking a reliable source directly supporting it may be removed and should not be replaced without an inline citation to a reliable source." (emphasis added) I have zero desire to edit war over this. To avoid trouble over this chunk of content, since we are both watching the ketamine article, would you please let me know how long, in your mind, content has to be tagged before it can be deleted? thx! Jytdog (talk) 18:13, 21 March 2014 (UTC)

@Jytdog: I replaced it because the information seemed sensible and quite possibly legitimate, but was an edit from a new user. I would like to see it remain indefinitely but if not then perhaps ask the original editor to find a citation of some sort. If not then a month seems sensible? Testem (talk) 21:16, 22 March 2014 (UTC)
a month will do, thanks! Jytdog (talk) 21:18, 22 March 2014 (UTC)

My Comma[edit]

My comma is necessary. Can you explain yourself? Marc Bago (talk) 01:50, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

@Marc Bago: I just think it sounded better without it. I would certainly not pause after saying 2000 in that sentence. Testem (talk) 13:04, 26 March 2014 (UTC)
