To get some practice editing you can use a sandbox. You can create your own private sandbox for use any time. Perfect for working on bigger projects. Then for easy access in the future, you can put {{My sandbox}} on your user page. By the way, seeing as you haven't created a user page yet, simply click here to start it.

Re percent range[edit]

I note your addition of cn tag on halitosis. The range comes from one of my publications (a review), but I did not want to add the citation myself because of WP:COI. See also talk:Halitosis#Epidemiology (a selection of primary sources). I guess therefore the cn tag stays for now, but it is not just made up =) Kind regards, Lesion (talk) 18:12, 21 January 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for contacting me. I appreciate your honesty. I'll take a look at those sources shortly and see if I can fit them into the article. :-) Boyhominid (talk) 00:44, 22 January 2014 (UTC)
To clarify, my publication, the review paper which would potentially be a suitable source per WP:MEDRS, is not listed on the talk page. What we have on the talk page is a selection of primary epidemiologic studies, which per MEDRS are not suitable sources. We need a nice review paper or textbook. I will be reworking the page at some point, so feel free to leave the cn tag for now if you prefer. Lesion (talk) 01:17, 22 January 2014 (UTC)


Concerning this edit, statements in the lead section do not need to have sources, as they are actually referenced in the body of the article, as the lead is a summary of the entire page, which includes reception. Sources in the lead get congested and muddled sometimes, so its better to avoid them if possible, unless the content in the lead section is not displayed elsewhere.
