Moved comment to talk[edit]

[These last two sentences are both (1) confusing, and (2) in contradiction to each other. Can someone clarify if glycerin is indeed gluconeogenic in animals with livers or not?]

Stereospecific numbering[edit]

I noticed that my addition of information about sn-nomenclature was removed/reverted with the statement: "NOTTEXTBOOK and pedantic".

I added a section on stereospecific numbering and naming as this is very important in understanding the nomenclature of plasmalogens. The stereospecific nomenclature is not adequately explained on any of the existing Wikipedia pages and most appropriately fits within the page on glycerol, since glycerol-derived biochemicals are almost always described using the sn (stereospecific numbering) system.

I added background on the numbering system itself to show why the numbering system exists and why it is necessary.

The Wikipedia styles regulations regarding "writing like a textbook" were not violated. Facts were presented, but not in a style to "teach subject matter". I did not have:

  1. leading questions
  2. systematic problem solutions as examples

It may have been pedantic, which is a negative way of saying I was precise and meticulous, but I don't see that being a pertinent problem in any of the Wikipedia style guides. Furthermore, the edit shouldn't have been removed -- but the pedantic nature could have simply been edited out (if that was the problem). When information is missing, and someone adds it to a page, I don't think the solution is to remove the needed information, even if it isn't written 100% to par (but I am new to this)

I admit that I am new to this, and open for a more detailed reasoning for the removed edits, as well as suggestions to improve my writing style, but the information is a needed addition to Wikipedia.

For now, I am re-adding the information Tmbirkhead (talk) 05:06, 25 July 2016 (UTC)

I made a few minor edits, hopefully to be less "pedantic" Tmbirkhead (talk) 05:16, 25 July 2016 (UTC)
