Edit request on 28 March 2013[edit]

The image right above "Shape and Support" is not in Wikimedia. This creates the situation where if I take my classroom to this site, we are unable to block this image. I request it be moved to Wikimedia. 72.183.116.207 (talk) 03:49, 28 March 2013 (UTC)

Sorry, I meant the image below the title "Shape and Support" is not in Wikimedia, so I cannot block it.

By the way, I am very appreciative that Wikipedia allows us to block the images. This allows us to allow the children free access to this wonderful site. 72.183.116.207 (talk) 03:51, 28 March 2013 (UTC)

The image, File:Weibliche brust en.jpg, is from Wikimedia Commons - same as most, if not all, of the other images on this page. If the others work, does there seem to be anything different about this one from then that might cause it to not work? -— Isarra 22:00, 5 April 2013 (UTC)
disabling this request. All images on this page that can be moved to Wikimedia Commons have been - all others are unable to be moved due to Copyright reasons. Mdann52 (talk) 13:06, 11 April 2013 (UTC)

Preparation for GA nomination[edit]

I will be preparing this article for GA nomination over the next month and would accept any feedback. I invite other users to contribute and/or take the lead on this. Ping to Flyer22, what are your opinions about what needs to be done to get this to a satisfactory standard? Tasks: --LT910001 (talk) 04:56, 2 March 2014 (UTC)

  • Add citations to unsourced areas
The ping didn't work, LT910001; but since I have this article WP:Watchlisted, it wasn't needed anyway. I see that you listed that the unsourced areas need citations; of course, I agree. What I first see as needing improvement when looking at this article is the lead; it doesn't do a good job at summarizing the article. But fixing up the lead can come after we fix up the rest of the article. The sourcing needs improvement. For example, look at the first two sources currently in the Shape and support section; those need to be replaced. Flyer22 (talk) 05:04, 2 March 2014 (UTC)
Great. I tend to work in a time-scale that is a little slower than other users, so I will slowly add and replace citations over the next month. Am also looking to get Cervix to GA --LT910001 (talk) 05:07, 2 March 2014 (UTC)
I'll help out with sourcing and some other matters concerning the Breast article as well. Flyer22 (talk) 05:12, 2 March 2014 (UTC)

Btphelps, regarding this, this and this latest edit I made, and this and this latest edit you made, make sure that you are using WP:MEDRS-compliant sources. Generally try to stay away from WP:Primary sources. Also see WP:MEDDATE. Flyer22 (talk) 07:42, 28 June 2015 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 8 August 2014[edit]

There is NO correlation between "race" and breast size, considering that "race" is a social construct, not biological. Please, take out the sub about Size because it along with the terrible New York Times article that's being used as a source, it's nothing but lies and junk science. This article is at risk of actually appearing racist if you don't fix it or allow it to be opened to editors who can fix it. Please. AccurateEddits (talk) 03:28, 8 August 2014 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done Not because of your allegations of lies and junk science but because we should have more studies more definitively proving any link. --NeilN talk to me 04:36, 8 August 2014 (UTC)
lol it is lies and junk science thoughSecondplanet (talk) 15:57, 30 August 2014 (UTC)
It is easily provable that there is a non-zero correlation between any two genetically-variable attributes, regardless whether a causal relationship exists or not (the correlation can be arbitrarily close to zero, though). So your claim is false. That doesn't require us to include anything in the article, of course, especially if there's no good and relevant study.
Also, race is not just a social construct, although it's often misunderstood. For example, melanesian/australian people and Bantus (southcentral Africa) are genetically most distant among all human races, despite both having "black" skin. KiloByte (talk) 19:12, 23 November 2014 (UTC)
