Wiki Med

Hi

I'm contacting you because, as a participant at Wikiproject Medicine, you may be interested in a new non-profit organization we're forming at m:WikiMed. Our purpose is to help improve the range and quality of free online medical content, and we'll be working with like-minded organizations, such as the World Health Organization, professional and scholarly societies, medical schools, governments and NGOs - including Translators Without Borders.

Hope to see you there! Anthonyhcole (talk) 05:22, 20 December 2012 (UTC)

I went and looked (again)

at what I had written to TheAmericanCritic and might have been a little hard on him (given the content of what was going on, I am pretty sure that this is a "him"), but not much. I do apologize if my interaction with him somewhat cut into your much more gracious welcome. (You are probably thinking "I can feel a 'BUT' coming", and you would be right). But I am one of those editors who feels that as often as not, pointing folks to the appropriate rules is not the best way to interact in a way that benefits wikipedia. I feel that I pointed out the issue involved in a fairly clear and reasonably polite manner and that this is the best way to proceed. I look forward to your perspective, your place or mine, doesn't matter which. Both is okay too. Einar aka Carptrash (talk) 20:16, 29 December 2012 (UTC)

Like you seem to be, I am a firm believer that assumptions are best avoided. However (a lot like "BUT") in English we typically have three choices when writing about a third party, male, female or plural. I dislike the plural choice, so usually take my best guess and proceed. If/when I turn out to be wrong, I just change. Should this edit be by a woman I will (1) eat my hat and (2) start referring to that person as "she." Carptrash (talk) 20:56, 29 December 2012 (UTC)

Just a quick note to apologize for my foul-up on Nursing that you were able to revert. I was trying to revert some unproductive edits that had just occurred in a five-minute flurry, but I must have clicked on the wrong line when looking at the history. I actually restored a problematic edit that had just been appropriately removed by another user. Anyway, I just wanted to thank you for taking care of it. I promise I'm not some idiot who wants to reinsert useless drivel back into an article. :) EricEnfermero Howdy! 01:55, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

Revdel vs Oversight

Regarding our convo on my talk page about the problematic edit to that talk page, I just wanted to clarify: WP:RFO and WP:REVDEL are two different things. The first is normally used in cases of substantial libel or defamation, insults, etc. directed at a subject, on a page related to the subject, that could result in Wikipedia and/or the Foundation being held legally liable. The second is more routine, and just sort of "hides" the revision. So in this case, let's say that the comment in question had been made on Jodi Foster's bio, then it could have possibly merited oversight. But because it was in another, unrelated location, then revdel is usually enough. Which is what ended up happening in this case. Also, "oversight" is a specific permission/group in the Wiki platform, so only a few people can do it or look at revisions suppressed with it. But any admin can do revdel. Cheers! §FreeRangeFrogcroak 01:29, 1 March 2013 (UTC)

Rollback

Wikipedia Rollbacker.svg

I have granted rollback rights to your account. After a review of some of your contributions, I believe you can be trusted to use rollback for its intended usage of reverting vandalism, and that you will not abuse it by reverting good-faith edits or to revert-war. For information on rollback, see Wikipedia:New admin school/Rollback and Wikipedia:Rollback feature. If you do not want rollback, contact me and I will remove it. Good luck and thanks.

Question on dispute resolution - Pharmaceutical Industry

Hi,

My request for dispute resolution was "quick closed for lack of sufficient discussion on the article talk page". This issue has been the subject of 7 exchanges totalling some 1700 or so words on the Article Talk page (under the subtitles "Some researchers who have tried to reveal ethical issues with clinical trials or who tried to publish papers that show harmful effects of new drugs or cheaper alternatives have been threatened by drug companies with lawsuits" and "Source query", and an additional 6 exchanges on my user talk page. I realize that the latter should have been on the article Talk page, but this does not change the fact that we seem to be at an impasse.

I just wanted to check to be clear that you had seen all of these exchanges, as the request was not as clear on this as it should have been. Iff so, what additional requirements are needed before we can get assistance with this? At this point, I think the interactions have become completely unproductive and I'm not quite sure what to do. There was a comment that we should seek a third opinion, but given the distance between our positions at this point, I'm very skeptical that we can agree on who would be a neutral third party.

Thanks,

Alfred Bertheim (talk) 05:27, 10 March 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: The Cancer Conspiracy

Hello UseTheCommandLine. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of The Cancer Conspiracy, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: There is quite a lot of coverage out there, e.g. http://www.bostonphoenix.com/boston/music/cellars/documents/02123472.htm which suggests the band is notable. The article doesn't make it clear why, but I don't want to delete an article about a notable band. Thank you. SmartSE (talk) 20:42, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

Foundation for Defense of Democracies

I believe your edit here [1] is the correct one per WP:V and WP:RS, and that you are correct in your view that "neoconservative" is not a pejorative term. The WP:SPA who reverted you has issues with WP:COI, WP:OWN, WP:PROMO and WP:NPOV. I've restored your original edit. Thank you for the careful editing you've done to the article! Qworty (talk) 19:20, 15 March 2013 (UTC)

Edit Warring

Your recent editing history shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

To avoid being blocked, instead of reverting please consider using the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. See BRD for how this is done. You can post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection. Mike VTalk 21:39, 20 March 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Juki

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Juki requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about an organization or company, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. Way2veers 07:34, 31 March 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: Janome

Hello UseTheCommandLine, and thanks for patrolling new pages! I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Janome, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: A7 does not apply - "leading - worldwide" is a credible assertion of importance. You may wish to review the Criteria for Speedy Deletion before tagging further pages. Thank you. ϢereSpielChequers 11:19, 31 March 2013 (UTC)

White Privilege, Again

You've reverted from a version that has been up for some time now. The wording of that version was uncontroversial and should be acceptable to us all. White privilege is a set of advantages that whites are argued to benefit from - we can all agree on that. Wikipedia is not a place to fight political wars; you believe the argument of white privilege, but you must recognize that stating it as a fact on the encyclopedia is POV pushing. I don't want to get into an edit war with you over this. Please revert back. -Thucydides411 (talk) 19:17, 2 April 2013 (UTC)

Prostate cancer

Screening for prostate cancer is controversial. Most of us who actually work in cancer research are strongly convinced, based on years of experience, that PSA screening has both benefits and harms, and specifically that it does save lives. A single meta-analysis based in large part on a deeply flawed trial (the PLCO) cannot be allowed to stand as the final word on the subject. Likewise, there are many, many critical flaws in the USPSTF evidence review and statement, and theirs should not be presented as the only perspective on the controversy. You may be striving for an "encyclopedic" tone, but you are presenting as facts statements which are in fact opinion, and I am very disturbed by the evident censorship of differing opinions.

His personal stuff is the same stuff that all the mens right's guys claim to have lived through, only he didn't have his only child torn out of his arms by our feminist controled judicial system. My stuff was no secret. I don't think. Thank you for the note. Einar aka Carptrash (talk) 22:34, 9 May 2013 (UTC)
I have what I term the "43 Rules I live My Life By". They are not recorded anywhere and the number varies from time to time, , but Rule 31 (today) is, "I will believe anything anyone tells me until it matters." With this fellow it did not matter so I could believe him. it sounds as if it did matter to you, so you get to make choices. And finding an editor to help debrief is a long standing wikitradition. We all take turns being at both the giving and receiving ends - though I am not quite sure which end is which. Carptrash (talk) 23:09, 9 May 2013 (UTC)

Your Arbitration evidence is too long

Hello, UseTheCommandLine. Thank you for your recent submission of evidence for the Race and politics Arbitration case. As you may be aware, the Arbitration Committee asks that users submitting evidence in cases adhere to limits regarding the length of their submissions. These limits, currently at 1000 words and 100 diffs for parties and 500 words and 50 diffs for all others, are in place to ensure that the Arbitration Committee receives only the most important information relevant to the case, and is able to determine an appropriate course of action in a reasonable amount of time. The evidence you have submitted currently exceeds at least one of these limits, and is presently at 1552 words and 57 diffs. Please try to reduce the length of your submission to fit within these limits; this guide may be able to provide some help in doing so. If the length of your evidence is not reduced soon, it may be refactored or removed by a human clerk within a few days. Thank you! If you have any questions or concerns regarding the case, please contact the drafting Arbitrator or case clerk (who are listed on the case pages); if you have any questions or concerns about this bot, please contact the operator. On behalf of the Arbitration Committee, HersfoldArbClerkBOT(talk) 08:00, 16 May 2013 (UTC)

Motion regarding Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Case/Race and politics

Resolved by motion:

In his evidence submission to this case, Apostle12 (talk · contribs · count · logs · page moves · block log) stated he is immediately retiring from editing Wikipedia:

This will be my last submission. I have decided to place a "Retired" notice on my user page and scramble my password, thus tendering my resignation

Apostle12's conduct was a substantial part of the present arbitration case (Race and politics) and hearing this case in Apostle12's absence would serve no purpose. The committee therefore resolves that:

  1. The present arbitration case is suspended for two months (from the date this motion passes).
  2. If Apostle12 returns while this case is suspended, arbitration proceedings will resume.
  3. If Apostle12 does not return to editing before two months have elapsed: he will be indefinitely prohibited from editing any page relating to "race and politics", broadly construed; and this case will be un-suspended and closed.
  4. Apostle12 is directed to inform the Arbitration Committee if he returns to editing the English Wikipedia using any account.

Apostle12 (and all of his accounts, if he has created one or more others at that time) may be indefinitely blocked by any uninvolved administrator if he violates the prohibitions in points 3 or 4 of this motion.

The Wikipedia Library now offering accounts from Cochrane Collaboration (sign up!)


The Wikipedia Library gets Wikipedia editors free access to reliable sources that are behind paywalls. Because you are signed on as a medical editor, I thought you'd want to know about our most recent donation from Cochrane Collaboration.

  • Cochrane Collaboration is an independent medical nonprofit organization that conducts systematic reviews of randomized controlled trials of health-care interventions, which it then publishes in the Cochrane Library.
  • Cochrane has generously agreed to give free, full-access accounts to 100 medical editors. Individual access would otherwise cost between $300 and $800 per account.
  • If you are still active as a medical editor, come and sign up :)

BRSP

Dear User, You have recently tagged the article of Balochistan Rural Support Programme, your tagging is well justified and i have tried to minimize extent the tags to some extent, please go through the article and tell me how can i remove all those tags and improve the article.

As far as notability is concerned, BRSP is the largest non profit organization working in province of balochistan in Pakistan, and one of the largest NGO in Pakistan. So i do not think that the article's notability should be challenged.

Thanks

Nabil rais2008 (talk) 17:11, 8 August 2013 (UTC)


I am sharing some of the references about BRSP, BRSP coverage of 2010 Balochistan Floods, BRSP contributions in 2010 floods in collaboration with UNHCR, BRSP food items distribution in 2010 floods in collaboration with USAID. It is a fact that you will not find much references about BRSP, as here in Pakistan the local / Non-profit organizations do not advertise their coverage / show visibility due to security reasons, as the NGO's are very vulnerable specifically here in Balochistan and tends to remain low profile during their projects work in vulnerable areas of Pakistan. However in past NGO's do advertise but as a result some incidents of kidnappings and ransom has been occurred and BRSP was one of them.

So it is a bit problem here which is not making BRSP a notable organization on net. But i can provide its Annual reports and some data which endows its contributions to the vulnerable poor people.

Nabil rais2008 (talk) 08:07, 9 August 2013 (UTC)

I am not saying the advertisement of BRSP as reliable source, rather i am saying that due to no visibility and the advertisement, documentaries of BRSP's operation is quite low, that is the reason that one can not find reliable sources by simple Google search. Yes i am very much enthusiastic about the page of BRSP, as it is worth to mention about BRSP in Wikipedia, to give a glimpse of BRSP's operation in Balochistan province of Pakistan, and its operation during the mentioned natural disasters in the province, in fact BRSP was the organization to have a wide coverage of relief operation activities. But sadly due to unavailability of reliable sources, i am so far not able to add them in the article, but to some extent i have added sources. Hope you understand.....

Information icon Hi UseTheCommandLine. Thank you for your work on patrolling new pages and tagging for speedy deletion. I'm just letting you know that I declined your deletion request for Damon Matthew Wise, a page that you tagged for speedy deletion, because the criterion you used or the reason you gave does not cover this kind of page. Please take a moment to look at the suggested tasks for patrollers and review the criteria for speedy deletion. Particularly, the section covering non-criteria. Such pages are best tagged with proposed deletion or proposed deletion for biographies of living persons, or sent to the appropriate deletion discussion. I know. It's a huge mess, and the man editor appears to exhibit the classic Asperger's symptoms, but there is something in it. Oddly, taking it to AfD might be more useful since t will force the issue one way or another. I'll still argue for retention, but it may force a spring clean Fiddle Faddle 22:46, 17 August 2013 (UTC)

Wow, never used that Twinkle template before Not quite what I had in mind! Rather too strong in my view, that! Fiddle Faddle 22:47, 17 August 2013 (UTC)
did some google searches. no indication of notability, in my view. AfDing. -- UseTheCommandLine ~/talk ]# ▄ 22:49, 17 August 2013 (UTC)
That works fine for me. The article as it stands makes the assertion of notability which is all it has to do for CSD to be declined. AfD is far stricter. Let's see what happens. Fiddle Faddle 22:53, 17 August 2013 (UTC)
Indented line Yes the whole extended family of Damon and Karen are littered with Aspies and they have a lot of content located from Google and other search engines, which we are debating whether is appropriate or relevant. A lot of mentions of political and environmental work, and achievements, in view of professionals off-putting, so will likely leave out reference's to election counts and literature in favour of the angle of the style and content which is aimed towards Asperger's and disability work, in which he has become what some have called infamous. Will also likely complete publications references and links (where they are found) and compile links to charities and causes he has been involved with - although most such work is already referenced and linked through pages like Charity-OnLine.ie website links to charities and fund-raising with Damon and others, [Pages - Galway links] and to a lesser extent Damons campaign site. If you look through the information being built up would appreciate if you find anything interesting and to the point. The main purpose of raising this page is because it was requested, and profiling the work he and us have been working on for all the charities and causes. — Preceding unsigned comment added by AspieNo1 (talkcontribs) 23:40, 17 August 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the comments - we respond when we have consulted further on changes as google search contents are being looked at for relevance to ensure a fair and balanced representation of Damon, which everyone can agree is impartial and independent and helps to raise awareness of the work he and us all have been doing in the autism and disability fields here ... if you have any constructive suggestions from contents from search engines like https://www.google.ie/#bav=on.2,or.r_qf.&fp=b9555517afdbd11d&q=Damon+Matthew+Wise on what to add, feel free to comment on the Damon Matthew Wise talk page. — Preceding unsigned comment added by AspieNo1 (talkcontribs) 00:30, 18 August 2013 (UTC)

  • Thanks for the heads up re ANI. I think an excellent venue if we can get something positive out of it, perhaps not for the DMW article, I suspect it is too late for that, but for folk on the Asperger's Spectrum who wish to edit here and are sometimes flummoxed by Wikipedia its rules and its strangeness. As you can see I have placed a comment there. Fiddle Faddle 08:51, 18 August 2013 (UTC)

Response to your reversion of edits to Polycystic ovarian syndrome

Hi, the primary source I added supported, not contradicted, the secondary source that was already there - maybe you just had a quick glance which is why you thought it was saying the opposite? In light of that does the edit work? Here's a link to see the revision http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Polycystic_ovary_syndrome&oldid=568885076#Alternative_medicine

I don't have a ton of time to contribute to Wikipedia, so if you're still unhappy with this edit, maybe you could brush it up rather than stripping it out?

Thanks — Preceding unsigned comment added by User talk:Predecess (talk) 15:20, 18 August 2013 (UTC)

If there's a solid secondary source, the primary source is unnecessary. -- UseTheCommandLine ~/talk ]# ▄ 18:58, 18 August 2013 (UTC)
Why would it not be desirable to include as many sources as possible, especially if more detail is provided by specifically stating what a primary source found. Also, if later conflicting studies are found/performed and documented on Wikipedia, it would be helpful for people to be able to assess the evidence on both sides since it's not like one side can be logically proved as fact.

Speedy deletion declined: Chartered Institute of Arbitrators

Speedy deletion declined

I declined your G11 speedy deletion request on Aruvikkuzhy Falls. Since the article is about a waterfall, a naturally occurring geological phenomenon, I don't understand how it can fall under G11. It is possible that merging to an article about the region/city could be more appropriate if there is not enough useful, verifiable info, but speedy deletion definitely seems wrong to me. Qwyrxian (talk) 05:46, 25 August 2013 (UTC)

Kitten

Thanks, and no problem, I actually indeffed one of the Dubai editors, User:Kmprop123 as a spam user name. Some of these are a bit tricky, they may be notable, and they are getting better at toning down the spam, despite the obvious intention. Oh, well, I'll do what I can Jimfbleak - talk to me? 07:56, 25 August 2013 (UTC)

Another speedy declined

This time on Rica Seilet Hotel. This article has existed since 2005. That, in and of itself, almost disqualifies it from speedy deletion (the only possible exception I can think of would be if someone suddenly found out it was certainly a copyright violation). I know this may seem odd, because I was confused too when I started, but speedy deletion is supposed to be the exception. Furthermore, you can't just tag something under G11 just because it may not be notable--those are separate things. Articles fall under G11 when 1) they were clearly intended primarily/solely to promote a person or organization, and 2) simple editing will not fix the problem. In the case of the hotel, I did take out an unverified paragraph about nearby attractions, but even with that it I wouldn't say it was unduly promotional. Now, is the subject non-notable? Possibly--I'd have to run a WP:BEFORE search to check. Most hotels probably aren't notable, though some are; for example, that article claims there was opposition to it being built. If that were relevant enough opposition to appear in newspapers, that might just be enough to pass WP:GNG. Unlikely? Probably. But that's what AfD is for. Qwyrxian (talk) 12:54, 25 August 2013 (UTC)

Continuous tagging of Articles for Deletion !

Hi ! Hope you are well, i am Nabil rais2008 (Well i have been blocked, and i am just sending you my message without being log in by using my IP address so please do not get confused)

Can you please mention recently nominated articles for deletion on Wiki Project Dubai / or other related pages for discussion and to bring more clear consensus ??? I have previously asked you to please consider holding your continuous tagging articles for deletion as i am unable to contribute (Do not take it in the sense that i will again start canvassing !) but i have not received any response from your side.

I do not think that its appropriate practice to tag loads of articles in Wikipedia for deletion, you should have a thorough review of the subject of article and have a detailed search on Google and then tag them for deletion. In my opinion this is not a solution to tag all the un sourced articles / articles lacking reliable references for deletion, rather you can contribute by adding / improving sources in articles by your self, which will result in improving the articles in Wikipedia and will at least show your productivity in Wikipedia as an active contributor rather an active "Articles Deletion Tagger" or "Articles deletion Patroller".

You have recently nominated "Ahmed Abdul Rahim Al Attar Tower" for deletion can i ask you how you have tagged this article for deletion ?? It is to bring in your kind information that this skyscraper this tower is 342 meters high (Considered as a supertall skyscraper as per CTBUH), and is one of the tallest residential building in Dubai. Is it not notable ?? So far i have failed to understand your self assumed criteria of notability, correct me if i am wrong. The article is well sourced (Emporis and CTBUH), and many other references can be added for general notability please read Criteria for Speedy Deletion before tagging articles for deletion.

If you want to send me any message then please send it on my talk page here; User talk:Nabil rais2008. Thanks for your understanding.
