Amino Acids, Response 13DEC2015[edit]

Hello DMacks! Thanks for catching my mistakes regarding the amino acid pages Histidine and Pyrrolysine. I added the links and fixed the sub-scripting as you suggested. When I get the chance to get to a PC with ChemDraw, I'll fix the images as well. Anything else you might suggest? Abuzzanco (talk)

Support request with team editing experiment project[edit]

Dear tech ambassadors, instead of spamming the Village Pump of each Wikipedia about my tiny project proposal for researching team editing (see here:, I have decided to leave to your own discretion if the matter is relevant enough to inform a wider audience already. I would appreciate if you could appraise if the Wikipedia community you are more familiar with could have interest in testing group editing "on their own grounds" and with their own guidance. In a nutshell: it consists in editing pages as a group instead of as an individual. This social experiment might involve redefining some aspects of the workflow we are all used to, with the hope of creating a more friendly and collaborative environment since editing under a group umbrella creates less social exposure than traditional "individual editing". I send you this message also as a proof that the Inspire Campaign is already gearing up. As said I would appreciate of *you* just a comment on the talk page/endorsement of my project noting your general perception about the idea. Nothing else. Your contribution helps to shape the future! (which I hope it will be very bright, with colors, and Wikipedia everywhere) Regards from User:Micru on meta.

Maybe you should not rollback my code in the word "leapyear"[edit]

Hi, DMacks:

    When I fixed the some mistake of python code in "leap year", my code is rollback by you for the reason "Too much detail/WP is not a how-to manual". I'm software engineer, and I found many people don't known the history of "leap year", include the textbooks about programming in china. the wrong code is used for getting "leap year"(before 1582). So, I spend some time to study this question, and wrote the code which let more people know "leap year". can you allow the code is added to the context of "leap year".
   It's my first commit in Wiki. :)
   Best Regards
   Jerry.Liu, Beijing, China

   I have add python code to bake of baidu. let more people knows the history of "leap year".  My English is poor, maybe you can know what I said.  hah.

IP block[edit]

Regarding User_talk:, was there something I missed? They made edits they apparently thought were helpful, I showed them the guideline that said they weren't, and they haven't edited since. --SarekOfVulcan (talk) 16:50, 19 September 2016 (UTC)

It's a IP hopper doing this on many Muppet-related articles since mid/late summer. He's either using proxies or meat-puppets, no obvious range-block yet. Short-term blocks didn't solve it, but longer-term blocks seem to slow it, as if he's not truely dynamic IP pool but instead having more trouble finding an abusable host. Check the history of...really any of the articles this one see the pattern. DMacks (talk) 17:31, 19 September 2016 (UTC)
Got it. Thanks for the clarification. I'll keep an eye out. --SarekOfVulcan (talk) 17:45, 19 September 2016 (UTC)

RCOSH thing[edit]

A note to thank you for your upgrade of the thiocarboxylic acid article and warning that I will amend the KSH reaction stoichiometry. You corrected my glitch so I am going to back correct what I think is yours. Together maybe we'll wend our way to the right answer. I re-read the OS prep. They are using 2 equiv KSH per RCOCl. So my guess is the following:

RCOCl + 2 KSH --> RCO(SK) + KCl + H2S (which is probably in equilibrium with RCO(SH) + KCl + KSH

This eq seems to make sense, but I remain open to further discussion.--Smokefoot (talk) 23:20, 19 September 2016 (UTC)

That makes sense. OrgSyn does note that 1:1 reactant ratio gives a complex byproduct, which suggests the product isn't inert to the residual KSH. I intentionally omitted the byproducts and just mimicked the OrgSyn scheme so that I didn't have to balance the stoichiometry until someone figured out the details. So "thanks for figuring out the details"! DMacks (talk) 03:04, 20 September 2016 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for September 20[edit]

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

Trivnew (talk) 23:22, 21 September 2016 (UTC) Hi I checked the link for indigo children and the referenced page does not have psuedoscience in its quote. I think adding that word is subjective and should be removed. Ill leave it you discretion though.

thank Trivnew

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, DMacks. This message is intended to notify administrators of important changes to the protection policy.

Extended confirmed protection (also known as "30/500 protection") is a new level of page protection that only allows edits from accounts at least 30 days old and with 500 edits. The automatically assigned "extended confirmed" user right was created for this purpose. The protection level was created following this community discussion with the primary intention of enforcing various arbitration remedies that prohibited editors under the "30 days/500 edits" threshold to edit certain topic areas.

In July and August 2016, a request for comment established consensus for community use of the new protection level. Administrators are authorized to apply extended confirmed protection to combat any form of disruption (e.g. vandalism, sock puppetry, edit warring, etc.) on any topic, subject to the following conditions:

  • Extended confirmed protection may only be used in cases where semi-protection has proven ineffective. It should not be used as a first resort.
  • A bot will post a notification at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard of each use. MusikBot currently does this by updating a report, which is transcluded onto the noticeboard.
Please review the protection policy carefully before using this new level of protection on pages. Thank you.
This message was sent to the administrators' mass message list. To opt-out of future messages, please remove yourself from the list. 17:49, 23 September 2016 (UTC)
