Interview invitation from a Wikipedia researcher in University of Minnesota[edit]

Hello CFCF,

I am Bowen Yu, a Ph.D. student from GroupLens Research at the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities. Currently, we are undertaking a study about turnover (editors leaving and joining) in WikiProjects within Wikipedia. We are trying to understand the effects of member turnovers in the WikiProject group, in terms of the group performance and member interaction, with a purpose of learning how to build successful online communities in future. More details about our project can be found on this meta-wiki page.

I would like to invite you for an interview if you are interested in our study and willing to share your experience with us. The interview will be about 30 - 45 minutes via either Skype or Google Hangout. You will receive a $10 gift card as compensation afterwards.

Please reach me at if you are interested or have any questions.

Thank you,

Edit notice at WT:MED[edit]

I'm not wild about {{Editnotices/Group/Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Medicine}}. Have you tried editing WT:MED with "New wikitext mode" enabled at Special:Preferences#mw-prefsection-betafeatures? Edit notices appear as pop-ups, which is great (better than the older wikitext editors) at getting people to read them, but very annoying when you edit the same page, and therefore get urgently warned about the same issues, over and over and over again. (They're also invisible to people using Mobile Web, but that's not a lot of the traffic for that talk page.) WhatamIdoing (talk) 20:04, 23 April 2017 (UTC)

What do you propose? It might be a tad long, but that is only because I did nothing to rewrite it upon implementing. That one is warned about the same issues over and over again may be worth talking to the team working on the feature about (maybe you should suggest a "do not show again" box). Carl Fredrik talk 20:11, 23 April 2017 (UTC)
How about just removing it entirely? It's redundant (the material is copied from the top of the page), it addresses problems that we don't actually have (when was the last time you remember seeing a request for medical advice on that page?), and nobody reads it (because banner blindness is a thing).

Alternative Medicine?[edit]

Hey CFCF (great band btw),

I don't want to go "bold" and change the infobox title back to just "Alternative medicine" since you seem to watch the page often, but didn't the consensus on the talk page discussion end with "no consensus to change title," which means that we're not supposed to change it to "Alternative and pseudo-medicine?" I don't want to take side on this issue, and obviously this is quite a controversial one, but I think we need to conform with the consensus and stick with "Alternative medicine" until further discussion can take place. Let me know what you think. --AsianHippie (talk) 05:39, 26 April 2017 (UTC)

The infobox reads "Alternative medicine", not entirely sure what you are referring to. Carl Fredrik talk 09:51, 26 April 2017 (UTC)
My bad. I'm referring to the Template:Alternative_medicine_sidebar. I saw on the talk page of it that concluded a discussion on changing the template title to "Alternative and pseudo-medicine" with "no consensus on changing the current title." Any explanation is much appreciated. --AsianHippie (talk) 00:20, 27 April 2017 (UTC)
Yes, the title was not changed from Alternative and pseudomedicine, i.e. we continue to include both. Carl Fredrik talk 10:26, 27 April 2017 (UTC)

Neck manipulation[edit]

Hi CFCF! Just noticed you reverted some of my old edits in Neck manipulation. In my opinion the wording of the Risks section is pretty biased as it shows a risk without citing properly that the mentioned risk is admittedly minuscule. My sources were not meant to disprove a chance of VBA, but rather show it's incredible unlikelihood of occurring. I'm going to add in a simple sentence to the end of the paragraph which I think, in hindsight, will work better. Let me know if this is ok. I know you are a medical student and likely wary of chiropractic (look, I get it) but removing well-sourced information isn't the purpose of Wikipedia, even if personal opinions differ. SEMMENDINGER (talk) 12:43, 16 May 2017 (UTC)

Hey again! Sorry for the double post, I have went ahead and made some changes to the article. I think you'll find my changes non-biased and well-sourced. I added in the lead some information found elsewhere in the article and found additional citations for those in addition, just in case any of it could be construed as controversial. Hope you agree with my changes, please let me know where we can improve on the page rather than reverting them all. Thanks! SEMMENDINGER (talk) 20:06, 16 May 2017 (UTC)

Dead link[edit]

Hi Carl—what an interesting user page you have. I'm getting the sense that you do really valuable work on en.WP. Thank you!

I see that you added a few images to the article "Lateral pterygoid". I know my lateral pterygoids only too well, unfortunately. My question is whether the tufts anatomical link, which appears to be dead, has a new URL, or is not worth bothering with, or perhaps you can suggest an equivalent. Should I remove it from the External links section?

My very best,

Tony (talk) 13:42, 19 May 2017 (UTC)

Hi Tony1 — feel free to remove such links even if they are in the format of templates, if you do not find them useful. Unfortunately many old rests from Wikipedias infancy remain in anatomy articles, as there is quite a small community curating them. Good to see you working on them :), keep it up.

Neck Manipulation[edit]

Hey again, what issue did you take with those sources removed here? All were formatted correctly and all clearly supported the sentence I had before them. SEMMENDINGER (talk) 00:58, 24 May 2017 (UTC)

Semmendinger They are unacceptable per WP:MEDRS. Carl Fredrik talk 06:26, 25 May 2017 (UTC)
Good deal, thanks for the information. SEMMENDINGER (talk) 11:02, 25 May 2017 (UTC)
