Wikipedia page mover.svg

Hello, Chhandama. Your account has been granted the "extendedmover" user right, either following a request for it or demonstrating familiarity with working with article names and moving pages. You are now able to rename pages without leaving behind a redirect, and move subpages when moving the parent page(s).

Please take a moment to review Wikipedia:Page mover for more information on this user right, especially the criteria for moving pages without leaving redirect. Please remember to follow post-move cleanup procedures and make link corrections where necessary, including broken double-redirects when suppressredirect is used. This can be done using Special:WhatLinksHere. It is also very important that no one else be allowed to access your account, so you should consider taking a few moments to secure your password. As with all user rights, be aware that if abused, or used in controversial ways without consensus, your page mover status can be revoked.

If you do not want the page mover right anymore, post here, or just let me know. Thank you, and happy editing! Biblio (talk) 23:26, 15 January 2017 (UTC)

Thank you very much indeed. I shall try to serve Wikipedia as best as I possibly can. Chhandama (talk) 03:33, 16 January 2017 (UTC)

Japanese ricefish ... in the rift valley lakes ...[edit]

Hi, I was amused to find that with this edit back in 2013 you suggested that the rift valley cichlids diversified from the Japanese ricefish... an IP spotted it just now and ripped out the sentence. Since it's all true apart from the name of the species, I'll put most of it back. I had somewhat naughtily hoped it would prove to be a hoax, but I don't think that's the case here... All the best, Chiswick Chap (talk) 19:39, 6 February 2017 (UTC)

So good of you to have noticed that. My statement was, "All the species have diversified from a common ancestral fish (Oryzias latipes) about 113 million years ago." But If I had stated "...a common ancestral fish with that of [just for emphasis] Oryzias latipes..." it would have made perfect sense. The original source did say, "Further, [cichlids] being approximately 113 ± 11 Myr diverged from medaka (Oryzias latipes)." (Fan et al. 2012) It does create the impression that cichlids evolved from medaka, while it only means that they shared a common ancestor. In fact, it is now known that the ancestral lineage is the Nile Tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) from which they diverged around ~15 mya. It is not a hoax, or a fatal mistake for that matter. Chhandama (talk) 09:08, 7 February 2017 (UTC)
Indeed. I think it might be best if you felt like saying something like that in the article. Many thanks, Chiswick Chap (talk) 09:14, 7 February 2017 (UTC)

Editor-in-chief, WikiJournal of Medicine

Thanks for your update! I've notified the peer reviewer, and if the update seems all right, I'll bring the article for editorial board decision shortly. Mikael Häggström (talk) 07:36, 4 March 2017 (UTC)
The article is under discussion in the editorial board now, and we should have a decision within a couple of days. There is also one additional editorial comment at: [1]
Mikael Häggström (talk) 08:45, 6 March 2017 (UTC)
Thank you very much. I am grateful to Evolution and evolvability for the edits, and particularly for an excellent suggestion. I have added the image accordingly. Chhandama (talk) 09:42, 6 March 2017 (UTC)
Great! Please also reference to the image in the text too; probably either in the structure or function section. Mikael Häggström (talk) 20:15, 9 March 2017 (UTC)
It was already cited in the function. Chhandama (talk) 03:09, 10 March 2017 (UTC)
Great. I can now announce that your article is published! Its entry on the main page includes some of the abstract: Wikiversity:WikiJournal of Medicine/Volume 4 Issue 1. Let me know if you want a different image or format there. Mikael Häggström (talk) 09:00, 11 March 2017 (UTC)
Thank you very much indeed. Chhandama (talk) 09:57, 11 March 2017 (UTC)
You're welcome. Also, the version in Wikipedia looks really nice! Mikael Häggström (talk) 12:33, 11 March 2017 (UTC)

Endosymbiosis[edit]

Symbiogenesis deals just with a couple instances of endosymbiosis, wherease the article on endosymbionts is the main article for endosymbiosis a general concept. The original article on endosymbiosis was merged with the one on endosymbionts for similar reasons that symbiont and symbiosis are one and the same article (currently located at symbiosis). --Njardarlogar (talk) 09:43, 12 March 2017 (UTC)

Thank you for clarifying. However, I would argue that symbiogenesis and endosymbiosis are used to imply the same meaning in evolutionary biology; they both explain both the theory and the process (see some recent literature [2], [3], [4], etc. I cannot trace who first used endosymbiosis or endosymbiotic theory, but the better terminology (historically and technically, to my opinion) is symbiogenesis. It is precisely for this reason that I helped merging the page. Chhandama (talk) 03:14, 13 March 2017 (UTC)

Editor of the Week[edit]

Editor of the week barnstar.svg Editor of the Week
Your ongoing efforts to improve the encyclopedia have not gone unnoticed: You have been selected as Editor of the Week for your extensive article-space contributions. Thank you for the great contributions! (courtesy of the Wikipedia Editor Retention Project)

User:Buster7 submitted the following nomination for Editor of the Week:

I nominate Editor Chhandama as Editor of the Week. He is a 10 year veteran of WP but really has only been active since 2013. 92% of his 8000 edits are to article space and he always courteously leaves an edit summary. A working member of WikiProject India (as well as other projects) he has created over 150 articles and has contributed 16 to Did You Know. He has contributed extensively to the article about Rosalind Franklin, a noted English chemist. Chhandama has rollback and page reviewer rights and is a pending changes reviewer. He deserves our thanks for helping build the encyclopedia.

You can copy the following text to your user page to display a user box proclaiming your selection as Editor of the Week:

Thanks again for your efforts! Lepricavark (talk) 17:26, 26 March 2017 (UTC)

Thank you so much for appreciating my Wikiholicisms! Like any other Wiki honour/award, this (rather useless one in a practical sense) is gratifying, and I hope it serves to gee up our editing enthusiasm. Let's make Wikipedia the best source of wholesome knowledge. Chhandama (talk) 02:42, 27 March 2017 (UTC)

On this day, 10 years ago...[edit]

Disambiguation link notification for May 5[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Cysticercus, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Taenia. 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.

Edit to Melanosome Page[edit]

Hello, I understand the reasoning behind why you removed my post from the melanosome page. However, I feel that my post contained a lot of well sourced and pertinent information. As it stands the information explaining why those fossilized microstructures or microbodies are actually melanosomes is too brief. My post explained how scientists have come to the conclusion that melanosomes really are preserved in fossils. I read all of those articles for a college project and part of the grade is posting to the wikipedia page. Is there some way I can get my post put back up on the page? Christoivonen30 (talk) 21:06, 26 May 2017 (UTC)

I don't think reposting would be a great idea as no experienced editor is likely to accept your contribution. Simply your text is not encycopaedic (see Wikipedia:Five pillars and Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not). As far as I can assess, your text is more suitable for a scientific journal, and Wikipedia is not one. You used a singe source to write a full-length essay/paragraph, which is nothing but a scientific review/discussion. Normally every statement needs a citation, unless it is a straightforward fact. And this is not a place for writing project report. But of course, you are very much welcome to edit if you follow the Wikipedia policies. Chhandama (talk) 04:08, 27 May 2017 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. An automated process has detected that when you recently edited Drosophila circadian rhythm, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Photoreceptor (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).
