Chemicals Discussion[edit]

The discussion here concerns all parts of the Chemicals WikiProject, including the infoboxes, lists, standards, includes/excludes, tools, contributors, etc etc etc. Feel free to add your comments to any section here, or start a new topic. Topics not specifically related to the Chemicals WikiProject would be better served at other wikipages.

Actual wikiproject info: statistics and alerts[edit]

The worklist shows the actual work to be done to achieve the goals of the Chemicals wikiproject. The choice of important compounds articles to work on has been finalized in an earlier stage of the wikiproject (around mid 2005), and no further articles are added, although we remain open for strong suggestions on this talkpage. The work these days focuses on improving the articles, from Chem Stub all the way to Chem A-Class articles. The table below shows that progress.

The percentage ≥ Chem Start was indicative of the initial effort. Now that we are progressing to more advanced progress, the weighted progress indicator is used, calculated as (Unclass*0 + Stub*1 + Start*2 + B-Class*3 + A-Class*4) / (Articles*4).

Fluorine peer review[edit]

Please review and fix "Fluorine". In particular, I know there are some top notch practicing chemists here. What I want is a check of the science, especially the structural compound review at the end for mistakes in fact or emphasis. Thanks.-TCO

Won't be back any more[edit]

I will not follow or answer this WP:Chemicals any more. WP:CHEM. See WP:CHEMISTRY. Except for voting to kill it. What a mess. -DePiep (talk) 23:03, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

What are you proposing? Merging Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Chemistry and Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Chemicals? --Leyo 23:07, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia session at ACS Boston chemistry conference in August[edit]

This is just a quick ping here for those who missed my post at WT:CHEMISTRY. We're having a symposium on Wikipedia chemistry at the ACS national meeting in Boston in August. If anyone wants to give a presentation, abstracts are due by this coming Sunday. The full description is:

Chemistry information on Wikipedia has an enormous reach and impact. In this symposium, the connections between Wikipedia editors and the wider chemistry community will be explored. In particular, collaborations between educators, students and regular editors (Wikipedians) will be examined to understand how Wikipedia editing can be set up as a successful class project. Educators will demonstrate how Wikipedia projects can help students with understanding subject matters and improving information literacy skills. Meanwhile, we will explore how educators and the Wikipedia community can work together through the Wikipedia Education Program to ensure students' contributions to Wikipedia are valid and effective. Finally, we will exchange ideas on how to involve more chemists in contributing to Wikipedia, and how to use the site wisely.

We are also organising an Edit-a-thon, so even if you're not presenting, we'd love for you to help with that. Thanks, Walkerma (talk) 21:05, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
