Block message:

Autoblocked because your IP address was recently used by "Rockbaum". The reason given for Rockbaum's block is: "Vandalism-only account".


Accept reason:

The autoblock must have been lifted; at any rate, your account does not appear to be under any form of block, as far as I can see. WilliamH (talk) 11:15, 2 July 2013 (UTC)


You have blocked a university address. You're not supposed to do that. Cl171562 (talk) 19:51, 1 July 2013 (UTC)

See WP:AUTOBLOCK. Also, there is nothing to say that an University's IP can't be blocked - this block only came into force as a blocked user tried editing from it. Mdann52 (talk) 10:38, 2 July 2013 (UTC)

Copying[edit]

Hey Cl, in this edit, you added material that is identical to this source. I appreciate that you cited the source in your next edit, but you've still presented it as your own work, which it isn't. You are allowed to quote short extracts from outside source in Wikipedia articles, so long as you include the source info and make it clear that you're quoting (usually by using quotation marks). You cannot under any circumstances paste in material from a copyrighted source, cited or not, whether you're planning on rewording later or not - not at all. That constitutes a copyright violation and could potentially get you blocked from editing. You should paraphrase the material in your own words before adding it to Wikipedia. If you have trouble with that, I would recommend reading the "Avoiding plagiarism" section of this article, or referring to this resource from Purdue University, or consulting your university writing centre or equivalent.

Medical editing[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia.

Please have a look at our medical sourcing guidelines, also explained here, and more aboutWikipedia's guidelines for writing medical articles. Also, there is a discussion of your class and its editing here. If you need help in understanding how to write for Wikipedia, you might ask on the talk page of the article you are editing, or at the talk page of Wikiproject Medicine.
