Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited 56th Annual Grammy Awards, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Fantasia (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

Thank you Adrian[edit]

Hi, thanks for the welcome. I am still fumbling around trying to figure all of this out.

I had no idea you could even join this site, or that any of this member area existed. I use Wikipedia all the time, go figure! I noticed the info on the Sperm Whale was incorrect and noticed the EDIT area........ poof, here I am!

Your links you sent will be invaluable, thank you!

Medicinal fungi[edit]

Thanks for your comments on the talk page of Mold. I have now taken the contents of Medicinal mushroom and Medicinal molds and integrated them. From the resultant mess I have deleted most of the in vivo stuff and much of the animal based research leaving only that which is provable as medically significant using secondary sources. The result is currently at Medicinal fungi. If you would care to have a look and give me some feed-back, that would be appreciated. Regards  Velella  Velella Talk   14:59, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the feedback. I have substantially revised my draft and it is now up as an article at Medicinal fungi with merge tags on both the existing articles. I'll take cover now !  Velella  Velella Talk   11:38, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

Still pretty new, so if there's a better way to communicate with people, please let me know.

I checked over the recent stuff that anonymous editor did on the LFL wiki. He redid it, and I have found that all links and citations are correct (I have a fb and was able to confirm the uniforms).

Again, any help on easier communications would be appreciated. Nate001 — Preceding unsigned comment added by Nate001 (talkcontribs) 01:50, 27 September 2014 (UTC)

β-globin[edit]

You reverted my edit . I do not think the average person like myself knows what β-globin is. I disagree with your edit and think indicating the problem is on chromosome 11, helps people understand better.--Mark v1.0 (talk) 20:37, 5 November 2014 (UTC)

Genetic Code Expanded Image[edit]

Adrian - Could you tell me why you removed the expanded image? I know it is in use by several organizations, including the US Department of Energy and genomic institutions like Venter's. I can come up with better referencing if that is the problem. Frank Layden (talk) 15:49, 17 February 2015 (UTC)

It is redrawn from here: http://www.complexity.org.au/ci/vol01/fullen01/html/ . I don't think color coding the codons is OR. Frank Layden (talk) 15:54, 17 February 2015 (UTC)
Oh! Sorry about that, Frank Layden. I'd misunderstood your edit, thinking you were just adding a link to the commons copy of the image already in the article. I've restored the link, and hopefully clarified in the caption that it leads to a more detailed alternative to the image in the article. That's an excellent image!
By the way, you don't need to sign with ~~~~ in edit summaries, as all pages that display edit summaries (article history, your contributions, recent changes, etc) present your username and the time stamp alongside the edit summary, anyway.
Apologies again for the misunderstanding. Adrian J. Hunter(talkcontribs) 11:39, 18 February 2015 (UTC)
That's a relief. By the way, the image needs an update. The last time it got fixed, the four NXN labels got lost. I'll alert you and ask for your help with the link if you will, please. Frank Layden (talk) 14:42, 18 February 2015 (UTC)
Adriana - would you please update the genetic code expanded view? It's here: File:GENETIC CODE Ian2.png . The four groups are now marked. Tell me if you can't do it. I am afraid of messing up the last few edits. Also, I did not copy over any of the last figure's legend on Commons. Frank Layden (talk) 14:01, 19 February 2015 (UTC)
@Frank Layden: Cool, new image looks good. Generally, when you have a new version of an existing image, it's better to replace the old image directly using the "Upload a new version of this file" function on Commons. That way the file history, legend, categorisation and so on are maintained, and there's little chance of someone mistakenly using the old version. Doing it that way also automatically updates any Wikimedia project pages that use the image, in this case Codon degeneracy, without the need to edit those pages directly. So I've uploaded File:GENETIC CODE Ian2.png over the top of the old File:ELLIPTICAL GENETIC CODE Ian.png, and credited you in the description of the new version. If you're happy with everything, one of us can nominate the now-redundant File:GENETIC CODE Ian2.png on Commons for deletion. Adrian J. Hunter(talkcontribs) 12:06, 21 February 2015 (UTC)

Revert query[edit]

Hi, wanted to query the removal of bacterial since I only added this due to definition of microcompartments which are described as bacterial....?--Iztwoz (talk) 14:10, 27 April 2015 (UTC)

Apologies for my dreadfully slow reply, Iztwoz. Your edit changed

Prokaryotes, however, do possess protein-based microcompartments, which are thought to act as primitive organelles (protein-bound and lipid-bound organelles).

to

Prokaryotic bacteria, however, do possess protein-based microcompartments, which are thought to act as primitive organelles (protein-bound and lipid-bound organelles).

In fact, these microcompartments are not limited to bacteria. For example, this review states "Another unique protein-bounded organelle in bacteria is the gas vesicle ... [Gas vesicles] are found in a number of bacteria and archaea including halophilic and methanogenic archaea". That's mediocre writing by the authors of the review, who use "bacteria" when they mean "prokaryote", but it's nevertheless unambiguous that these compartments are found in archaea.
I've since realised that "microcompartments" is piped to Bacterial microcompartments. But that article itself mentions that they're also known in archaea. When I get some more time in a couple of months, I'll consider initiating a discussion about moving that article to simply "Microcompartments" or similar.
Cheers, Adrian J. Hunter(talkcontribs) 03:20, 2 May 2015 (UTC)
Just to say that the article doesn't say the compartments are present in archaea just that one of the proteins involved in the protein shell is found in archaea hence my later edit to just refer to bacteria. --Iztwoz (talk) 06:01, 2 May 2015 (UTC)
Iztwoz I'm afraid I'm not following. Even the article cited by the article I linked above says "Gas vesicles occur in five phyla of the Bacteria and two groups of the Archaea". Adrian J. Hunter(talkcontribs) 07:19, 2 May 2015 (UTC)
The article I was referring to is the one referenced on the prokaryote page. I've been looking through the various papers and I can only find refs to some archaea possessing gas vesicles - I can't find any reference to anything else. If the gas vesicle is the only compartment found in some archaea I think that's worth mentioning on the page and really doesn't warrant the removal of bacterial microcompartments.--Iztwoz (talk) 08:15, 2 May 2015 (UTC)
Fair enough... Every rule in biology has exceptions, so perhaps characterising microcompartments as bacterial is reasonable. Adrian J. Hunter(talkcontribs) 06:54, 4 May 2015 (UTC)

Cory Bernadi[edit]

Moved from my user page

Hello, the edit made to the Cory Bernardi page was correcting an incorrect statement regarding the Senator's family. According to the cited source, "All About Cory" it was his maternal grandfather who was a trade unionist and Labor supporter, however his Wikipedia article had erroneously stated it was his Italian immigrant father who had such sympathies. Please refer to the sections of the source stating "The senator who claims multiculturalism has failed is the son of an Italian immigrant, Leon Bernardi" and "Bernardi’s mother Jo says her own father, who was a trade unionist and staunch Labor man, would have turned in his grave when Cory joined the Liberal Party at 17." As such your rollback was made in error. 10:33, 15 May 2015 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Arnieaplha (talkcontribs)

Arnieaplha – My apologies, you are absolutely correct. I checked the source before reverting, but I see that I mis-read it. I've undone my reversion, thus reinstating your edit. Cheers, Adrian J. Hunter(talkcontribs) 13:21, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

I disagree with your restoration of section under Lynn Margulis that deals with AIDS[edit]

I think the the section which I revised to more accurately reflect the concerns of the late Distinguished University Professor Lynn Margulis is a vast improvement over the former section which is both misleading, contains "straw man" arguments and ad hominem attacks (name calling someone an "AIDS denialist" with no citation where Margulis ever "denies" the existence of AIDS). Seth Kalichman is not an "HIV researcher". He is professor of psychology, not a virologist or an expert on spirochetes, so his inability to understand the arguments made by Margulis et al in the 2009 paper are understandable: he is ignorant of the science. Who cares that he "infiltrated" groups he labels as "AIDS denialists"? Does he claim to have infiltrated the Margulis Lab or that the Margulis Lab was such a group? Where is his evidence? He has an opinion. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but not their own set of facts. Any hypothesis, is open to questions and to attempts to falsify it--that is science. The HIV hypothesis has not earned any special privileges since it has a dubious record of failed predictions, failed drug research trials and failed vaccine trials. HIV may be the cause of AIDS, but there is no paper in the primary science literature that makes and substantiates that claim with evidence. As a co-author the 2009 paper, it may appear to you that I am overly sympathetic, however, a wholesale replacement of facts (I have provided references) with the former, highly-biased and inaccurate version does not serve the interests of users of Wikipedia. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.234.176.148 (talk) 14:15, 7 July 2015 (UTC) I disagree with your restoration of section under Lynn Margulis that deals with AIDS[edit]

Figure from Vox[edit]

Hi! You had kindly suggested I use an image published by Vox (republished from a journal article) about studies on cancer-causing foods in the WP:Why MEDRS? essay. I love that figure! But I think I cannot use that image due to copyright. I cited the Vox article instead. Do you really think it would be OK to use that image in WP? Jytdog (talk) 19:29, 22 August 2015 (UTC)

Hi Jytdog,
Nope, that image is copyrighted, and I couldn't find any indication it's available under a WP-compatible license. I hadn't meant to suggest we could display it here, only link to it. (I think you could also link to the full original version, like this, assuming that link works for someone not logged in to my uni library.)
If you're still thinking about ways to shorten your essay, one option would be to move more supporting but peripheral content into footnotes, like you've already done with the [a].
Thanks for all your help earlier regarding Lynn Margulis.
Cheers, Adrian J. Hunter(talkcontribs) 08:38, 23 August 2015 (UTC)
You're welcome! Thanks for the copyright thoughts and additional ones. Jytdog (talk) 12:43, 23 August 2015 (UTC)

Concerning the discussion at article Pac-man[edit]

Thank you for resolving the problem concerning the article Pac-man. I want to suggest something. Should we warn the editor Hurdur2.912 in case he vandalizes other articles? I never have seen such a disruptive edit before, in which information is replaced with meaningless sound effects from the subject. I would warn him, but since I am not an administrator, I do not think I can do so. 68.100.116.118 (talk) 00:57, 22 September 2015 (UTC)

No worries 68.100.116.118! I'm not an administrator either, but anyone can issue warnings, often by using one of the many templates shown here. But in this case, there's no need! The edit was undone within seconds by ClueBot, a robot that automatically finds and reverts this kind of vandalism on Wikipedia. Cluebot then duly sent Hurdur2.912 a warning, which you can see at User talk:Hurdur2.912. Hurdur hasn't edited since.
That kind of edit is actually pretty common. The good news is, Wikipedia is quite robust against schoolkid type vandalism. Most of it is reverted very rapidly by Cluebot or other bots. Most of the rest gets picked up by recent changes patrollers, and most of what's left gets fixed by people like myself who regularly check their Watchlists. The real problem these days is people who edit more seriously, but are here to push an agenda – corporate shills, nationalists, quacks, political hacks, and others.
Happy editing, Adrian J. Hunter(talkcontribs) 13:18, 22 September 2015 (UTC)

Ubiquitin[edit]

Hi,

I saw you reverted the addition of here in the lemma on Ubiquitin. The reason I put it in there is that post-translational modification is very much broader than the adding of an other protein to a polypeptide chain. The assumption of linking to post-translational modification itself so the understanding and scope of the term becomes clear, will not hold for each and every reader. T.vanschaik (talk) 09:04, 2 October 2015 (UTC)

My apologies, T.vanschaik. I don't remember making that reversion, but I assume I thought your edit was a test edit, akin to the addition of '''bold text''' or matt was here that I often see through my watchlist.
I've reworded that part of the lead to, I hope, make things a little clearer. I've omitted mention of post-translational modification, instead leaving it to the Ubiquitin#Ubiquitination section. Cheers, Adrian J. Hunter(talkcontribs) 10:07, 2 October 2015 (UTC)
I think I can live with this modification. T.vanschaik (talk) 11:42, 5 October 2015 (UTC)
The new position of the link indeed suits better. Just a question: The comment on the last edit to me could be as well in Chinese as the used abbreviations doesn't mean anything to me.145.118.160.3 (talk) 11:15, 6 October 2015 (UTC)
Sorry 145.118.160.3, but I'm not sure what you're referring to. Are you the same person as T.vanschaik? If you're referring to this edit, "rm" is an (admittedly lazy) abbreviation for "remove", "lead" (or "lede") is the introductory section of an article before the first heading, and a redirect is a page that causes someone entering a certain term in the search box (eg "ubiquitylation") to end up at at a certain article (eg Ubiquitin). Adrian J. Hunter(talkcontribs) 07:10, 7 October 2015 (UTC)

Thanks to you[edit]

Thanks for mocking my beliefs after my criticism of Wikipedia for the evolution article not having a criticism section was removed from Talk:Evolution by posting a link to Myth_of_the_flat_Earth. No, I really appreciate it. I mean that sincerely. After all, I don't have a PhD, so I need someone who has gone through liberal post-secondary education to tell me what to think, because I'm so stupid, I don't know how to think critically and form an opinion based on facts and evidence presented. So, have you seen any new species evolve lately? You will let me know if you do, right? Thanks buddy. 96.51.63.198 (talk) 14:34, 6 October 2015 (UTC)

Hi 96.51.63.198,
I sent you that link because your comment suggested you might have held the common misconception that educated people "knew" the Earth was flat in recent history. I did not intend to mock your beliefs, and I'm sorry for giving that impression.
