You've learned how to use basic wikicode in your sandbox. You can always return there to experiment more.

Article Selectiom[edit]

Could you please verify which article you have selected? You can put it in the table on the main course page, or list it here, or put it on my talk page. Thanks Valswisher (talk) 03:37, 2 April 2014 (UTC)

sure, my chosen article is "stroke"

Hi Fellow UCSF Wikipedian[edit]

Hey, I'm one of the students who took the course last time it was offered. Just wanted to offer any support/help I could provide. Feel free to message me on my talk page or it shouldn't be too hard to figure out my UCSF email. Emhawkins (talk) 20:11, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

Pinging people[edit]

Hello, I know that Wikicode is a pain to learn, but I saw you trying to talk to Jfdwolff at stroke. I expect he will see your message, but in the future to be really sure, use the user tag like this Jfdwolff so that the person gets an alert. Wikipedia has some creaky old software and does not signal people except on request.

Also, thanks for examining nuance there. That is totally beyond the scope of typical users and much appreciated. Blue Rasberry (talk) 22:41, 13 April 2014 (UTC)

Yes, consider me pung. {{u}} is the relevant code. To ping me, do {{u|Jfdwolff}}. JFW | T@lk 10:09, 14 April 2014 (UTC)
Thank you both for the advice! Acallen88 (talk) 16:13, 14 April 2014 (UTC)

Blogging about UCSF Wikipedia Course[edit]

Hi Acallen88,

I am Ammar - a student pioneer of a student network called Students 4 Best Evidence (S4BE, - a network of students interested in promoting Evidence-Based Health.

Prof. Amin has told us about your experience and we would love it if you were able to write a blog about it for us - sharing it with fellow medical students will be sure to encourage others to participate. We at S4BE are getting ready for an event to encourage students to edit Wikipedia's medical content.

We are planning an exciting week (15th-19th September) of blogs, resources and tutorials, culminating in a live Wiki Editathon, online and at the UK Cochrane Centre, Oxford on the 16th September.

Cochrane has recently joined forces with Wikipedia in a partnership to get more Cochrane health evidence on Wikipedia. To celebrate this, we at S4BE want to get students involved in this partnership as we know Wikipedia is a key student resource.

Throughout Wiki Week, we will be publishing blogs on:

  • Why students are interested in Wikipedia
  • how to become active on Wikipedia
  • What is WikiProjectMed
  • How to edit Wikipedia
  • Cochrane and Wikipedia partnership
    and much more!

Wiki Editathon (launching on 16th September):

  • In person in Oxford at the UK Cochrane Centre and online using Google Hangout on the 16th
  • Wiki training: experienced Wikipedians will be joining us to provide support for students new to Wiki
  • Group work: working on a selection of interesting and new Cochrane reviews that we will help pre-pick
  • A prize…
    and lunch for those coming in person!

For further information about the week and the Editathon: see the Wikipedia Event page here:

Prof. Amin has told us how busy you all are with your internships; your participation will be very much appreciated.
