Project Help[edit]

Hello Zephyris. I am a student in this graduate-level course. My project is to work to hopefully get an article to good article status, and I have chosen mTORC1 as my article. I am at the phase where I am supposed to elicit responses and found your user page under the molecular and cellular biology page. If you have any input to the article, that would be great. If not, that is okay as well. Thanks. Flemingrjf (talk) 04:08, 23 April 2013 (UTC)

Request to use an image.[edit]

Hey Zephyris,

I have just posted the helicopter anatomy picure in my blog. Sorry, I have only read now, that I should ask for permission first. Sorry for being so impolite. I just didn't know. Please let me know if you want me to remove the picture. You can find it here: http://helikopterhysterie.blogspot.com/ It will be tomorrow's entry. The blog is about helicopters, mostly it is original content and it is published daily.

Best regards

No problem at all, expecially for something like a blog post, please do go ahead and use it! Credit is all I ask... - Zephyris Talk 11:43, 31 January 2010 (UTC)

Image usage[edit]

Hi Zephyris.

I would like to use one of your images at PurposeGames.com

It is the "Helicopter Anatomy" image.

If you're not familiar with PurposeGames, please have a look at it. In particular, see my profile at:

http://www.purposegames.com/profile/1325

if you check my games (available through the profile), you'll see that I make a habit of referencing the original author, and providing links to the sourcepages.

I will check back here for an answer. You could also leave me a message on my message board, but that would mean you'd have to register at PG, which you may not wish to do.

At PG, I go by the name Tickman. Here, I use the name Chadron (though I have yet to do anything at Wikipedia).

A Template Intervention Request[edit]

Dear Zephyris. I'm trying to work on a pathway, and I'm stuck with something on the Complex Enzymatic Reaction template. I saw your name as a major contributor to the editing of that template. I'd really appreciate your help. I've copied out my complaint here so you won't have to travel far. Thanks a bundle! Shiningheart (talk) 19:36, 5 March 2010 (UTC) How do I edit the size of images in this template? I've tried a variety of things, but to no avail. I'm still a rookie, so I don't want to edit any changes in the template itself. Can anyone assist? Thanks. You can check out my talk page to see the pathway I'm editing and the problem I've encountered.

To change the image size you just need to add the desired size in the template in the correct format. It gets complicated because of the crazy table and template formatting but if you just follow the following example it should always work fine:
To enter the following image with a width of 25px
Fructose.png
Enter the following in the template instead of just "Fructose.png"
Fructose.png{{!}}25px
The "{{!}}" encodes a pipe ("|") in a form that the template can cope with so it gets passed to the image properties.- Zephyris Talk 12:17, 8 March 2010 (UTC)

Permission for Image Use[edit]

Hi Zephyris, As an editor working for a publication company I would like to ask for permission to use one of your pictures, the diagram of needles with different bevels. Here is the image http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:NeedleBevels.svg. Can we have your permission to use this? We will of course be happy to reference your work and provide a link to the page. Let me know if you require any further information from me. I will be happy to email you any details you require Many thanks. B 213.212.70.122 (talk) 13:19, 24 March 2010 (UTC)

Apologies for the slow reply; I am very happy for you to use this image. A reference to me (Richard Wheeler (Zephyris)), Wikipedia and a link to the page in question would be perfect. - Zephyris Talk 08:35, 13 April 2010 (UTC)

Another Permission for Image Use[edit]

Hi Zephyris, as a researcher I would like to ask for permission to use one of your pictures in a paper, the diagram soil classification. Here is the image http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:SoilComposition.png. Can we have your permission to use it? we will reference your work and provide a link to the page.

Axenic[edit]

Hi Zephyris,

I didn't understand your edit to Axenic. Is axenic culture any more important for studying these organisms than others? I'd have thought it less important in these cases for the reasons described in the last section of that article. Adrian J. Hunter(talkcontribs) 15:33, 1 May 2010 (UTC)

Axenic culture is definately important for parasite and symbiote research. For example study of a human parasite would be almost impossible if you could not grow the organism in the lab. Obviously study of the organism in the host is also important, but with totally different research aims. - Zephyris Talk 13:13, 2 May 2010 (UTC)

Stirling engine[edit]

Hey Zephyris, I recently noticed your stirling engine animation (File:Alpha_Stirling.gif ) One thing that's missing in the schematic dough, is the flow of (hot/cold) gas back trough the regenerator. At http://www.animatedengines.com/vstirling.shtml , this is included in the schematic making things allot more clear. At first, when I saw your image, I didn't quite grasp it inmediatelly (needed to cross-compare with other images first). As such, I think this change of the animation is vital. In addition, another things which isn't quite clear is the heating and cooling. As I understand it, this only happens intermittently, and not constantly. Perhaps that you could draw out the heat exchangers connected to a short pipe, and apply coloring depending on when they cool/heat (I'm guessing this is done via valves ?)

Finally, a same approach needs to be followed with the beta stirling animation.

Thanks in advance,

KVDP (talk) 08:20, 8 June 2010 (UTC)

You make good points but sadly (for the time being at least) I just don't have time to update the images. Maybe at some point in the future, my animation skills have come on a long way since then! - Zephyris Talk 21:42, 10 June 2010 (UTC)
I made updates to 2 of your images:

I think they're correct (check anyway dough), so I will probably get started on the other images if you give me permission. I'll also need your support, especially since I've got some administrators watching every move I make on wikimedia commons (ie Andy Dingley, Globbet, ...) After the images are done (and checked), you can then make a new version of the animated gif. I hope this will save you allot of the time required so that we can finish it immediatly. Thanks in advance, KVDP (talk) 17:52, 14 June 2010 (UTC)

Hey Zephyris,

I'm not sure whether you noticed it, but the image improvements I proposed have been deleted since then. Aldough 1 image modification contained errors (beta stirling, see http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Deletion_requests/File:Gamma_Stirling_frame_1.png ), the alpha stiling did not contain any, so the only explaination I can think of was the fact that I did not have your explicit support to make the new versions for your images. Is it thus possible to get your explicit support ? In addition, I'll probably alter the cycle, so that frame 1 is also the first stroke. Perhaps it's best that I sent you the images first via e-mail when they're done (perhaps best via your hotmail adress, rather than the PATH-one ? That way checking goes quicker and perhaps you can upload them (that way it's clear you support the modifications). Thanks in advance.

KVDP (talk) 12:06, 3 July 2010 (UTC)

I guess if there were serious mistakes in one image then the other wiki users would have been suspicious of the changes to other images, sorry you have had difficulties with this. If you get any more problems you can leave me a note and/or direct them here and I will do some talking too! I am very happy to check images etc. if you send them to me, my hotmail address would be best. Good luck, and thank you for contributing! - Zephyris Talk 21:57, 3 July 2010 (UTC)

NADH Dehydrogenase[edit]

Hi, Zephyris!

Recently a translation of Oxidative phosphorylation was proposed to FA in the spanish wikipedia. I desagree with this nomitation, because I think that the article is a bit obsolete and lacks relevant information about thermodinamics and mechanisms, and also the structure of the article, even when its quite good, it's not the best it can be.

Now I'm trying to improve the article by myself. I wonder if you could make a new unlabeled image like this but using data from

PDB ID: 3M9S instead. I tried to do so with PyMol, as you can see here, but it can't be used in commons, as the picture states that can be used only for education. ¿Any clue? Thanks in advance: --Gustavocarra (talk) 17:22, 23 September 2010 (UTC)

3M9S NADH Dehydrogenase from Thermus thermophilus.png
  • How about this? I aligned the alpha helix-rich membrane domain horizontally as this seemed like a sensible orientation. - Zephyris Talk 19:05, 23 September 2010 (UTC)
Oh, thanks, Zephiris for your time and quick answer! Very nice with these metallic colors! The orientation in my image shows both the new-found cavity in which is thought to have place the electron transfer to ubiquinone, and also shows the HL helices, wich unfortunately are in the opposite side of the membrane domain, and are very important to explain the proton translocation mechanism in this model. So I hope you could represent the lipid bilayer as in your former image to give 3D impresion. Iron clusters are not necessary since I know their location and can be added when I label the image. Anyway, the lipid bilayer could be represented with dimension lines if you couldn't add it.

Cosmic Calendar[edit]

Hi! Much thanks for your constructive review of my featured picture candidate on the cosmic calendar. I have tried to fix the issues you raised and would like to repost it as a featured image. Could you critique the current version? Your prior review was very helpful:

  • Image is now native 1600 * 1200 png
  • Description has been updated. I was previously relying on the article to explain the image
  • I left the calendar at 3 timelines with december 31st having most information, but I tried to graphically separate out human evolution on December 31st. I did not add a 4th timeline for the hours of the day as I couldn't get it to work without graphically cluttering the image.
  • Most text changes you suggest are adopted. I left "dinosaurs at top of food chain" because it captures a key idea, which is that mammals were blocked from diversifying and advancing because dinosaurs were the dominant life form. Is there a better way to say that with fewer letters?

suggest redrawing main DNA molecule to make it consistent with upper blowup of TA base pair[edit]

In your excellent ball and stick DNA picture,

DNA Structure+Key+Labelled.pn NoBB.png

there is an inset showing blowups of two consecutive base pairs in the main picture. The lower base pair CG is correct but I think there is a problem with the upper one. In the blowups, the upper pair is TA, but in the main molecule it is GC. Maybe you can redraw the base pair in the main molecule to make it consistent with the blowup. (The next base pair up in the main molecule is indeed TA, but it is not angled conveniently for viewing---the T eclipses the A too much). Alternatively, you might want to redraw both the main molecule and the upper blowup to be AT. This would have the advantage of showing that the double helix can accommodate base pairs in any orientation, i.e. with either the purine or the pyrimidine on either strand, without distorting its overall shape. The way the main molecule is now, with GC above CG, shows this nicely, so an alternative fix would be to keep the main molecule the same and change the upper blowup to be GC. But that would have the disadvantage of not showing all four bases in the blowups. You clearly have a flair for this, so I leave it in your hands.CharlesHBennett (talk) 18:41, 20 September 2011 (UTC)

Wow, good spot. You are absolutely right. I will have a look at correcting this asap. - Zephyris Talk 19:28, 21 September 2011 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 4[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Microtubule, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Midbody and Cillium (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

B-DNA picture at beginning of "Double Helix" article fails to rotate[edit]

Maybe you can replace it by one similar to your nice animations used in the A-DNA and Z-DNA articles. A static picture doesn't give nearly as good an idea of the 3d structure.CharlesHBennett (talk) 21:31, 19 January 2014 (UTC)

p53 Image[edit]

Hi Zephyris!

I am creating a p53 Wiki for a class I am taking, and I used an image of yours . I credited the picture to you and I also provided a link. Thank you! Your image helped a lot! Keri Sullivan (talk) 07:33, 6 February 2014 (UTC)Keri Sullivan

Great! I am glad you found it useful :) - Zephyris Talk 14:52, 10 February 2014 (UTC)

Turbofan Unlabelled.gif[edit]

Hi Zephyris,

on Commons you uploaded a series of cool turbofan animations: Turbofan Unlabelled.gif. Thanks for that. Unfortunately the shaft is turning in the wrong direction, pushing the air contrary regarding the arrows. Maybe you still have the source files four this animation and can process these animations again? This would be great. Thank you.

How did I not notice that! I will see if I can find the source files... - Zephyris Talk 11:43, 30 April 2014 (UTC)

Featured picture candidates: the archimollusc[edit]

Well over a year ago you voted on an image of an archimollusc which was a candidate for Featured Picture. I am renominating it now after many changes, most of them I hope for the better. If you have new thoughts, comment, or suggestions, they would all be appreciated. Thank you! KDS4444Talk 17:44, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
