Thanks for getting rid of that silly word from the Systems Biology page! (talk) 12:33, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

Believe it or not it seems to have been in and out of the article since March 2005! benmoore 13:34, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia Science Conference[edit]

Hello Ben, You're receiving this update because you asked to be informed about the Wikipedia Science Conference taking place in London on 2nd and 3rd of September. Thanks for your interest.

The call for proposals is now public and session proposals are coming in. The two keynotes, and some other invited speakers, have graciously accepted. In mid-May we will bring together a programme, a publicity poster, and an online booking form. Then we'll begin the main publicity and will need your help getting the word out.

Please put in a session proposal if you've been thinking of doing so: the deadline is the 8th May. This is far from the only way to be involved. The conference will need session moderators, a programme review group, and other volunteers: if there is a specific role you are interested in, or if you have any other questions, please email me at

There will be a large "unconference" session in the programme and - fingers crossed - a "hackathon" event two days later on the Saturday, so even if you do not have a proposal accepted, you will have a chance to shape the conference activities.

Please pass on the word to any colleagues who might want to put in a proposal or help the conference in any way. Cheers, MartinPoulter (talk) 12:08, 14 March 2015 (UTC)

Barnstar Awarded![edit]

WikiDefender Barnstar.png The Defender of the Wiki Barnstar
Awarded with thanks and admiration for your !vote opposing the Wifione Adminship request in 2010 which specifically notes the article Wifione was promoting, and which is now the cause of a scandal that has given Wikipedia a big black eye. Had your concerns been heeded, the Wiki would have been spared a scandal that has impacted lives. You were all too right. Jusdafax 20:29, 7 April 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for this, of course I didn't spot the real issue at the time—I should have looked harder at the individual edits—but even a stopped clock is right twice a day, I guess. Ben Moore (talk) 13:23, 8 April 2015 (UTC)
