Hi, you changed "lysine acetylsalicylate" into "lysine aspirinate".[1] The former is WP:COMMONNAME, the later even does not appear in Google. I have reverted. Regards, kashmiri TALK 18:23, 28 November 2014 (UTC)

Sorry, I was going by copper aspirinate as a pattern. Clr324 23:20, 28 November 2014 (UTC)

At the top of the ref it says "Class: Opiate Agonists" Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 18:21, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

The term "opiate" refers to alkaloids of the opium poppy according to opiate. Is tramadol found in the opium poppy? It could very well be. Clr324 00:02, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
I'm stupid, tramadol is 100% synthetic. Ms. Andrea Carter here (at your service) 06:27, 23 July 2015 (UTC)

Caffeine section thank you[edit]

Thank you for your thank you! It is nice to know what I am writing is being read. And I like your 3 reasons to edit: I am always thinking about what to write that a high school student in general biology - not advanced placement - can understand and use. And yes I too learn tons when I edit, and it IS fun!

I got a message that I had been thanked, and found on my user page it was you. Do you know if there is there a place to look to see which edit a person has thanked me for - in this case, you?

Regards, IiKkEe (talk) 17:22, 28 December 2014 (UTC)

You're so welcome :D Yes I did thank you. Clr324 20:20, 28 December 2014 (UTC)

Editors Barnstar.png The Editor's Barnstar
You've made fixes to previously unnoticed problematic text and other useful edits in articles which have been subjected to a stupid amount of editorial review and which I've worked on extensively. This is my way of saying thanks for helping out. Face-wink.svg Seppi333 (Insert  | Maintained) 06:08, 3 January 2015 (UTC)
PS: naming these things "barnstars" still seems completely random to me.
Wow. I was just bored. Thank you so very much :D Can I put it on my Wikipedia page? --Clr324 06:20, 3 January 2015 (UTC)

Your recent edits[edit]

Information icon Hello and welcome to Wikipedia. When you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion (but never when editing articles), please be sure to sign your posts. There are two ways to do this. Either:

  1. Add four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment; or
  2. With the cursor positioned at the end of your comment, click on the signature button (Insert-signature.png or Button sig.png) located above the edit window.

This will automatically insert a signature with your username or IP address and the time you posted the comment. This information is necessary to allow other editors to easily see who wrote what and when.

Thank you. --SineBot (talk) 05:11, 5 January 2015 (UTC)

I do sign my edits with ~~~~. For some reason it doesn't seem to work. :( Clr324 05:15, 5 January 2015 (UTC)
Click this link - Special:Preferences - and then scroll down to the signature heading. Add "[[User:Clr324|Clr324]] ([[User talk:Clr324|talk]])" (without quotes) to the field to the right of "Signature:". Once you do that, make sure the box below it has a check mark (i.e., the box followed by "Treat the above as wiki markup. ...").
After you do those 2 things, hit save at the bottom of the page and then try using the 4 tildes again. Seppi333 (Insert  | Maintained) 04:43, 8 January 2015 (UTC)
I fixed it anyways by getting a new sig. Clr324 (say hi) 08:36, 8 January 2015 (UTC)

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

To Cap or not to Cap...[edit]

I see you have a burden for this subject, so would you please go to every Cannabis article and do this, because right now your idea is only applied occasionally and very inconsistently. You may be right, but it's not being applied. -- BullRangifer (talk) 15:18, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

@BullRangifer: The spelling Cannabis isn't always applicable. If you're talking about the genus you spell it Cannabis but if you are talking about Cannabis used as a psychoactive or medication you spell it cannabis. For example, hemp is Cannabis but it isn't cannabis.
Since Charlotte's Web intended to be used a medication you could spell it cannabis or Cannabis but it makes no sense to call it cannabis. Clr324 (say hi) 15:30, 26 May 2015 (UTC)
I think I understand your point, and I wasn't thinking strictly along those lines when I wrote the article. My concern now is about the way the word is capitalized (or not) in many other articles. I had assumed that they were okay (especially the mother article), and I just followed their example, but according to you they weren't good examples. Please get to work on them, because they don't follow your ideas very often. We need some consistency here. I wish you well in your endeavor. -- BullRangifer (talk) 02:20, 27 May 2015 (UTC)

@SurdusVII: Hello! Andrea Carter (at your service | my evil deads) 07:38, 9 August 2015 (UTC)

Use the move button for moves, don't cut and paste.[edit]

Hi Clr324, so when you moved your draft from userspace to draftspace, you did a cut-and-paste move which is almost always the wrong way to move articles because it splits the page history, which is legally required for attribution. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page (the tab may be hidden in a dropdown menu for you). This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. I tagged the article and talk page so that an administrator can fix the problem with a history merge. Wugapodes (talk) 01:02, 19 July 2015 (UTC)

@Wugapodes: I didn't know. :( Ms. Andrea Carter here (at your service) 01:04, 19 July 2015 (UTC)
It's not a problem, don't worry. I didn't know about it the first time I had to move a page either, this was more so that you can do it correctly in the future. Plus, the move button is way easier than cut and paste moves so it's good to know about. Wugapodes (talk) 00:36, 20 July 2015 (UTC)
@Wugapodes: The worst part is I've moved pages before but I just forgot. I have no excuse. :( Ms. Andrea Carter here (at your service) 12:45, 20 July 2015 (UTC)

Merger discussion for Deaf culture movement [edit]


An article that you have been involved in editing— Deaf culture movement —has been proposed for merging with Deaf culture. If you are interested, please participate in the merger discussion. Thank you. Wugapodes (talk) 21:13, 21 July 2015 (UTC)

@Wugapodes: They should've just kept in draft stage and once it was ready ask for it be created. Ms. Andrea Carter here (at your service) 21:20, 21 July 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, but might as well keep going forward. I'd recommend commenting on the discussion about your thoughts on the matter; I commented that I think the title makes the intent of the page confusing. I looked through the history and noticed that SurdusVII moved it out of draft space. I'm going to notify him/her of the discussion as well. Wugapodes (talk) 23:12, 21 July 2015 (UTC)

Down's Syndrome Association[edit]

In an article about a British organisation, please don't change the terminology to American (the article is marked with {{Use British English}}). The name of the organisation itself is a clue to the UK terminology. I've reverted your change. PamD 21:12, 25 July 2015 (UTC)

Digit Ratio[edit]

Hey! Just a heads up that I reverted an edit under your name on the Digit Ratio article. I might have misunderstood the reason for the removal. Have a great day! Mechordeus (talk) 06:00, 21 August 2015 (UTC)

@Mechordeus: I simplified it to autism because Asperger's is considered to be an autism spectrum "disorder." It would sort of be like say "homosexuality spectrum and lesbianism." Except the difference between Asperger's, PDD-NOS and classical is a lot more arbitrary. Andrea Carter (at your service | my good deeds) 06:33, 21 August 2015 (UTC)
Yes I know I have a userbox that says "This user has Asperger syndrome and doesn't think of it as a disease in need of curing." and I categorize myself as Category:Wikipedians with Asperger syndrome, it is for archival purposes. Andrea Carter (at your service | my good deeds) 06:36, 21 August 2015 (UTC)
I see the parallel now, thank you for clarifying :) I'm still iffy on removing the reference to AS, since the source does sub-divide the studied group into autism and autism-AS. How about shifting AS to the fore, since it's a smaller/particular part of the whole? Such as "Increased rate of Asperger syndrome and autism (when comparing digit ratio to general population)" or "Increased rate of Asperger syndrome and other autism disorders (when comparing digit ratio to population)"? Mechordeus (talk) 17:14, 21 August 2015 (UTC)
@Mechordeus: That would be okay. Andrea Carter (at your service | my good deeds) 18:06, 21 August 2015 (UTC)
Fantastic! Edited the article per the above. Thank you very much for your help, and happy editing! Mechordeus (talk) 19:10, 21 August 2015 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Neuroqueer[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Neuroqueer requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about something invented/coined/discovered by the article's creator or someone they know personally, and it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator. CombatWombat42 (talk) 00:12, 16 September 2015 (UTC)

I didn't invent the term and I don't personally know the person who did. Andrea Carter (at your service | my good deeds) 01:42, 16 September 2015 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Neuroqueer[edit]

Hello, Clr324. I wanted to let you know that I’m proposing an article that you started, Neuroqueer, for deletion because I don't think it meets our criteria for inclusion. If you don't want the article deleted:

  1. edit the page
  2. remove the text that looks like this: {{proposed deletion/dated...}}
  3. save the page

Also, be sure to explain why you think the article should be kept in your edit summary or on the article's talk page. If you don't do so, it may be deleted later anyway.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. CoffeeWithMarkets (talk) 06:43, 17 September 2015 (UTC)

@CoffeeWithMarkets: I don't really care anymore. Delete it if you want but if I find it referenced in notable sources, I will recreate it as a separate article. Andrea Carter (at your service | my good deeds) 07:00, 17 September 2015 (UTC)
The issue is that the term is basically made up out of whole cloth. It doesn't matter what I think of it personally or anybody else's feelings. CoffeeWithMarkets (talk) 07:08, 17 September 2015 (UTC)
@CoffeeWithMarkets: I don't understand that metaphor. Andrea Carter (at your service | my good deeds) 07:11, 17 September 2015 (UTC)
The term "Neuroqueer" has even less meaning than the likes "Speckledorf" or "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious", because while those two came out of nowhere basically, they are least have been used notably in popular contexts that could be reported on by reliable sources. "Neuroqueer" doesn't even have that. You might as well take any two other random terms with some political significance, say "guns" and "GMOs", and invent "GunMOs" as a term that describes something... let's say that some faction somewhere in the U.S. (on Facebook, Tumblr, Vine, etc) thinks that consuming genetically modified foods makes a person more likely to commit gun crimes. There we are. Just now, I've done the exact same thing that happened with "Neuroqueer". It's not the same thing as notability, not in the slightest. CoffeeWithMarkets (talk) 07:22, 17 September 2015 (UTC)
@CoffeeWithMarkets: If gunMOs got media attention, it would make sense to have an article on it. For one, I didn't make the term NeuroQueer, stop attributing it to me (sorry if you aren't, it seems like you are). The only connection I have to the term is I'm part of the Facebook group and I created the redirect.
Second, the term is the intersection of Queer theory and the neurodiversity movement. Think the identity is a mix of two different things? Great but that doesn't change that if it had nobility I would create the article. I personally don't think the identity is random, both Queer and Neurodivergent are pathologized, told incorrectly we have an illness to be treated. Also the social barriers that certain people face, called disability, can impair ability to engage in prescribed gender roles.
But it isn't notable right now so you have a point there. Andrea Carter (at your service | my good deeds) 07:35, 17 September 2015 (UTC)

Talk:Free bleeding[edit]

You may be interested in the following. Talk:Free bleeding is being deleted due to it being a talk page without a corresponding article. I'm going to put it here, if that's alright with you.

Extended content

Should there be an article on this? This hoax has gotten media attention and some people actually do do this. Maybe a redirect to 4chan? Andrea Carter (at your service | my evil deads) 17:26, 14 August 2015 (UTC)

I say no redirect. There was an article on my Facebook news feed recently which displayed a woman, the drummer for M.I.A apparently, running the London Marathon with blood running down her leg in order to help eliminate the menstruating 'stigma'. I say give this article another go.--Launchballer 18:54, 14 August 2015 (UTC)
@Launchballer: There does seem to be a lot of media attention, both from those who think it is silly to label tampons as "oppressive" and from those who see it as "empowering." And media attention towards the fact that this is 4chan's handiwork. Andrea Carter (at your service | my evil deads) 22:59, 14 August 2015 (UTC)
My main moan with redirecting this to 4chan is that the connection is not absolute; much of the attention doesn't stem directly from 4chan, and in short the link is a bit too tenuous for my liking.--Launchballer 23:17, 14 August 2015 (UTC)
How so? Andrea Carter (at your service | my evil deads) 23:37, 14 August 2015 (UTC)
208,000 results for "free bleeding", 2,380 results for "free bleeding" "4chan". I rest my case.--Launchballer 00:26, 15 August 2015 (UTC)
I suppose. 4chan may have started it but people actually believe this and practice this. A lot of the media attention is on the people who free bleed, not on the originator of the idea. I guess I do support it having its own article. Andrea Carter (at your service | my good deeds) 01:14, 15 August 2015 (UTC)

Sandy Hook shooting[edit]

Sorry, but Adam Lanza did have behavioral problems and they were called such in various media accounts of the shooting. --Bookworm857158367 (talk) 23:10, 28 September 2015 (UTC)

@Bookworm857158367: I'm not denying he was Autistic and obsessive-compulsive. It is biased to call them behavioral problems though. OCD is mostly a problem but some obsessive-compulsives find positives. Autism isn't a problem in any way. His behavioral problem was murder-suicide, not neurodivergence. Andrea Carter (at your service | my good deeds) 23:17, 28 September 2015 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) Exactly. Media accounts of the shooting may well have said that he had behavioural problems, but that doesn't mean that we can do a slightly OR-ish thing of sticking it in as a heading and listing autism or whatever. This is contentious to say the least. Autism isn't a behavioural problem. As Andrea says, it's more of a wiring issue. I oppose the reinstatement of "problems". Best wishes to all DBaK (talk) 23:21, 28 September 2015 (UTC)
That's a matter of opinion. They were referred to as behavioral problems in the news coverage that I saw and were certainly regarded as such by the people who knew him. --Bookworm857158367 (talk) 23:50, 28 September 2015 (UTC)
@Bookworm857158367: It is a matter of opinion, you're right. I am 100% biased because I am Autistic and obsessive-compulsive and support the neurodiversity movement. I never hid that. The point is there is a disagreement (and behavioral problem is not a medical term) and thus a neutral term would be acceptable to everyone. Andrea Carter (at your service | my good deeds) 00:02, 29 September 2015 (UTC)
Indeed. The current situation is more neutral and does not require citation to support the wording. Other approaches might. DBaK (talk) 11:32, 29 September 2015 (UTC)

MOS:IDENTITY is being revisited: How should Wikipedia refer to transgender individuals before and after their transition?[edit]

You are being contacted because you contributed to a recent discussion of MOS:IDENTITY that closed with the recommendation that Wikipedia's policy on transgender individuals be revisited.

Two threads have been opened at the Village Pump:Policy. The first addresses how the Manual of Style should instruct editors to refer to transgender people in articles about themselves (which name, which pronoun, etc.). The second addresses how to instruct editors to refer to transgender people when they are mentioned in passing in other articles. Your participation is welcome.
