Horner's?[edit]

A few weeks back, you confirmed that the complaint left on the Horner's Syndrome svg was a valid one. I've since brought the image to the graphics workshop on Commons, but it would really help if you could say what specifically is wrong with the image. Which number is misplaced? Where/what should it be? And could you answer on the workshop page? Thanks. DS (talk) 12:49, 14 August 2015 (UTC)

Sigh. Think you could help out some more? DS (talk) 16:36, 24 August 2015 (UTC)
Really, I don't know what to say. Could you take over for me on that? Thanks. DS (talk) 23:21, 27 August 2015 (UTC)

Why revert?[edit]

Hey there, can I ask why you made this change? There is nothing supporting the claim whatsoever. --allthefoxes (Talk) 19:55, 15 December 2015 (UTC)

The reference provided is Rosen's Emergency Medicine, 7th edition. I don't currently have access to the 7th edition, but I do have the 8th edition. From the 8th edition, chapter 77, page 988: "The incidence of primary spontaneous pneumothorax is approximately 15 cases per 100,000 population per year among men and 5 cases per 100,000 population per year among women."

Presentation of Wikipedia[edit]

Hello Axl. I noticed that you made a comment that working on Wikipedia was now difficult due to style and placement changes that have happened. It should be possible to help you by making some changes in your own personal style sheet. That would allow you to have Wikilinks and text in what ever colour you choose. It is also possible to hide useless elements that may get in the way. For example the logo can disappear. I myself have decluttered my experience by hiding some Wikipedia interface links that I never use. Let me know if you are interested. Graeme Bartlett (talk) 05:22, 5 November 2016 (UTC)

Thank you for offering to help, Graeme. Yes, I am certainly willing to try out your suggestions! (Although I am not optimistic.) Axl ¤ [Talk] 15:42, 5 November 2016 (UTC)
OK so I need to find out what you want to change. My first question is what skin are you using? I use Monobook, but anything should be customisable. The next question is what do you want to change? For example we can change the colour of Wikilinks (and some others), say to yellow by putting this in the stylesheet: "a { color: #ffff00;}". You can make the Wikipedia logo become invisible with "#p-logo a {background-image:none!important;}" but you may want to do something different like shrink it or move it out of the way.

  1. ^ This survey is primarily meant to get feedback on the Wikimedia Foundation's current work, not long-term strategy.
  2. ^ Legal stuff: No purchase necessary. Must be the age of majority to participate. Sponsored by the Wikimedia Foundation located at 149 New Montgomery, San Francisco, CA, USA, 94105. Ends January 31, 2017. Void where prohibited. Click here for contest rules.

Your feedback matters: Final reminder to take the global Wikimedia survey[edit]

Are you still involved with Featured Articles?[edit]

I came across the nomination for Boogeyman 2 and found myself quite disgusted by the low bar that was set- it seems like this was closer to GA standards, though I wouldn't have likely endorsed that promotion in itself. After seeing FANs time and time again, I'm a little put off by this one. When you have time, would you like to take a look at this and let me know if this was upheld correctly? I'm unsure if it is actually below par or if I'm simply disenchanted from past experiences. DARTHBOTTO talkcont 20:21, 30 June 2017 (UTC)

Hi, DarthBotto. While I do still undertake FAC reviews, I am rather busy at the moment. Indeed I am currently in the process of an FAC review, and my review is already proceeding far too slowly. Unfortunately I don't have the time to inspect Boogeyman 2. Sorry. Axl ¤ [Talk] 11:46, 2 July 2017 (UTC)

Thanks![edit]

Hey thanks for the Barnstar (my first ever)! I do experience Imposter syndrome, however, as most of the work really is user:Kelson's (he's the one doing all the coding, along with a few others) :-) But if you ever get to use the app (or another one), feel free to let us know how we could/should improve it: actionable user feedback is always welcome.

References[edit]

There are some concerns about my use of a source for content on vaginal epithelium. In hopes to declutter the talk page of the article, here are the references that I am using to support the content describing the multi-layered vaginal epithelium. I want to post it on the talk page, but hesitate because I have messed up the threads of the ongoing discussion there:

Best Regards, Barbara (WVS)   23:45, 12 December 2017 (UTC)
Thank you for your input on the Vagina talk page. The references listed above are meant to support the content regarding the different cell types that make up the vaginal epithelium. I don't think any of them have anything to do with 'keratinization'. Sorry for the confusion. The discussion became so long that it was difficult to sort out the comments regarding the cell types from 'kerantinization'. I do believe that this is the longest talk page discussion that I've participated in that centered around the prefix 'non'. Best Regards, Barbara (WVS)   13:02, 13 December 2017 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Thank you for your edits to Vagina. This article is being reviewed for GA status. The talk page contains numerous discussions about content and referencing. Most of the discussions are between two editors (me and another) and consensus can be difficult to establish. Any input you feel would be helpful is greatly appreciated. A third opinion is always helpful and more objective. Best Regards, Barbara (WVS)   09:58, 15 January 2018 (UTC)

You're welcome! I don't see the article listed at WP:GAN. Anyway, good luck with the review. Axl ¤ [Talk] 10:18, 15 January 2018 (UTC)
