Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Bronislaw M. Honigberg, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Amherst (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
You deserve a barnstar!

Metchnikoff -- edit request
I want to ask for your help. I have written a book about Elie Metchnikoff. It wasn't exactly a commercial project, but it's still a conflict of interest for me to post it myself. I created a request to add it to 'Further Reading' a month and a half ago, but no one has paid attention. The book is the first modern biography of this important scientist, and it's a result of ten years of unsponsored work. Can I ask you to add it to Further Reading?
Here are the book's details: : Vikhanski, Luba (2016). Immunity: How Elie Metchnikoff Changed the Course of Modern Medicine. Chicago Review Press. ISBN: 978-1613731109. A new biography, using previously inaccessible archival material. google books link: https://books.google.co.il/books?id=S_M_jgEACAAJ&dq=immunity+how+elie+metchnikoff&hl=iw&sa=X&redir_esc=y
Here are links to two reviews of the book: Kirkus Reviews: https://www.kirkusreviews.com/book-reviews/luba-vikhanski/immunity-how-elie/ Jerusalem Post: http://www.jpost.com/Business-and-Innovation/Health-and-Science/The-forgotten-yet-unforgettable-scientist-443312
One more thing:
I have also placed a request to add the following page to External Links. If you consider such a request appropriate, it would be great if you could add it as well. I think this page can be of interest to people searching for material on Metchnikoff:
Photos of places in which Metchnikoff lived and worked https://sites.google.com/site/lubavikhanski/Where-Metchnikoff-lived-and-worked
Many thanks in advance for your help.
- Chhandama, thank you so much! I'm glad to finally get a response to my request. I had originally corrected Metchnikoff's dates of birth and death citing primary archival sources, but one of the editors actually suggested that I post my own book in the footnote as a secondary source, that's why I posted it myself. I'm now in touch with the Nobel Prize and Pasteur Institute's official websites to get them to make the same correction. It's not easy because Metchnikoff himself celebrated his own birthday on the wrong date after moving to France! Can I ask you to add my book and the documentary site to the entry in French and German? Or do I have to ask the editors in those languages? Please let me know, thanks.--Lubav77 (talk) 13:04, 22 February 2016 (UTC)
- Thank you very much! It's still there on the French site, but not the German, does this mean someone removed it? Also, I've just fixed a major mistake in the French entry -- Metchnikoff never took on French nationality, I've provided evidence on the Talk page. But his name should really be Elie Metchnikoff, the way he called himself. They use 'Metchnikov,' which makes no sense, it's neither his French name nor a transliteration from Russian, and they also spell it inconsistently throughout the entry. Do you think I can go ahead and correct the entire entry, or should I try to contact the French editors? Thanks in advance for your advice. --Lubav77 (talk) 14:37, 23 February 2016 (UTC)
- Dear Luba, I am sorry that I may not be of further use as I am ignorant of German and French. I cannot even defend the German edit. I suggest that you seek the help of reliable editors there. As to the correction of the name, you have every right to edit yourself, provided you can clearly justify your case. I admire your enthusiasm. Chhandama (talk) 05:05, 25 February 2016 (UTC)

Flying spaghetti monster
Hello, why did you revert my edit on Flying spaghetti monster? The link on the reference was not working (the page was moved), and I could find the correct URL of the same document in the same site. By reverting, you restored the broken link... am I missing something? --Eylenbosch (talk) 11:32, 13 April 2016 (UTC)
