2,4,6-trinitrobenzene sulfonic acid[edit]

Information.svg Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you recently tried to give Trinitrobenzene sulfonic acid a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into 2,4,6-trinitrobenzene sulfonic acid. This is known as a "cut and paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is needed for attribution and various other purposes. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page. This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other pages that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Cut and paste move repair holding pen. I've fixed the move. -- Flyguy649 talk 21:45, 13 March 2010 (UTC)

Please do discuss name changes at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Chemicals first. Materialscientist (talk) 23:52, 13 March 2010 (UTC)

Your recent edits[edit]

Information.svg Hello. In case you didn't know, when you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion, you should sign your posts by typing four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment. You may also click on the signature button Button sig.png located above the edit window. This will automatically insert a signature with your username or IP address and the time you posted the comment. This information is useful because other editors will be able to tell who said what, and when. Thank you. --SineBot (talk) 18:43, 15 March 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of 2,4,6-trinitrophenylmethylnitramine[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on 2,4,6-trinitrophenylmethylnitramine, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing no content to the reader. Please note that external links, "See also" section, book reference, category tag, template tag, interwiki link, rephrasing of the title, or an attempt to contact the subject of the article don't count as content. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content. You may wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself. If you plan to expand the article, you can request that administrators wait a while for you to add contextual material. To do this, affix the template {{hangon}} to the page and state your intention on the article's talk page. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this.

I have moved your article to your userspace at User:Acechem/2,4,6-trinitrophenylmethylnitramine. You can work on it when you have time and then move the finished article back into the namespace. De728631 (talk) 19:31, 17 March 2010 (UTC)
For inspiration, you might also want to have a look at Picric acid. De728631 (talk) 19:35, 17 March 2010 (UTC)


You have Wikipedia policy backwards on this - article primary names should be the common name used for the item/chemical/thing, not the most precise technical name.

Please move the Tetryl article back to its common name, and don't move other articles like that.

Thank you. Georgewilliamherbert (talk) 18:17, 19 March 2010 (UTC)

Fast response. Thank you! Georgewilliamherbert (talk) 18:20, 19 March 2010 (UTC)
