State of the Evidence[edit]

I have added a "{{prod}}" template to the article State of the Evidence, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but I don't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and I've explained why in the deletion notice (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). Please either work to improve the article if the topic is worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia, or, if you disagree with the notice, discuss the issues at its talk page. Removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, but the article may still be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached, or if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria.

1,4-dioxane[edit]

I am going to revert your work of today to 1,4-dioxane. It is a literal copy of data (a copyvio). As the above points have already explained, I suggest you to read pages like wp:not and wp:mos. Please, reconsider your style. Thank you! --Dirk Beetstra T C 23:05, 16 January 2007 (UTC)

Hi Dirk, I just caught myself as far as citing within text rather than reference citations. I will update shortly. If you can comment once I've made revisions I'd appreciate it. Thanks,

I have already reverted 1,4-dioxane and sodium laureth sulfate. I will expand on this.
  • The edits that you have performed were, at least in 1,4-dioxane copyvio, which does not comply with wikipedia policies. The style of writing was the same as in sodium laureth sulfate, so I suspect copyvio-type work there as well (though I must confess there, I could not find an online copy for that).
  • The edits are strongly POV (see wp:npov). Now it may be that the current article is not showing a side that you want to tell, but this is not the way to write that. See also wp:not. By the way, 1,4-dioxane does tell it is a carcinogen, you could provide a bit more info on that, there is no need to push that. We don't push it as being a very good solvent for organic reactions either.
  • sodium laureth sulfate is about the chemical compound sodium laureth sulfate. The style of writing is such, that it is using that compound as a carrier to say things about 1,4-dioxane.
Furthermore, you are stating references, without pointing to the right document, you for example state "According to the National Library of Medicine’s Hazardous Substances Data Bank, the major uses of sodium laureth sulfate are:" (on sodium laureth sulfate). I can NOT find that info on toxnet, but maybe you can enlighten me. The info under that (the copyvio) is straight from other webpages, toxnet does not give a document with that list.
Please note, that rewriting copyvio material is not allowed. Information has to be written from scratch.
Therefore I ask you. Change your style fully and totaly. Wikipedia is not going to be the vehicle to bring your point of view to the world. If adding info, use reliable sources (that is, peer reviewed articles, not other webpages, or blogs).
I hope this clarifies, if you have further questions, please don't hesitate to ask. People within the wikipedia:wikiproject chemicals can probably help you along further. Thank you. --Dirk Beetstra T C 23:50, 16 January 2007 (UTC)

Fair enough, I'll take a cut at another version. As well, I wanted to know if my posting under the Breast Cancer Fund's name is a problem. Please comment.— Preceding unsigned comment added by breast cancer fund (talkcontribs)

I am sorry if I sounded a bit harsh, but although wikipedia is not censored, we do have some policies to live by. I saw the earlier warnings on this page, these do have broader implications, please read the policies, other editors may not be as patient as I am (today, at least), and may issue vandal-warnings, resulting in blocks.
You will have to read the username policies, I don't know them by heart. Personally I don't make a big problem out of that, but others may. Please make sure only one person edits under this account, and please don't make multiple accounts (wp:sockpuppets), except if you fully and totally give up on the original account (you can ask for an account rename, but that is quite difficult, and not often done). If you make a new account, please state (in the beginning) that this is your old account, and do not use the old account for some edits, and your new account for others (that may get you blocked, and is not good for credibility). But as I said, read the policies, and see what they tell about this case.
Happy editing. Hope to see you around. --Dirk Beetstra T C 00:18, 17 January 2007 (UTC)
Oh, please sign your posts on talkpages, you can do that by typing four tildes (~~~~) at the end of your post. Makes it in discussions more clear who said what and when (without having to go back to the history every time). --Dirk Beetstra T C 00:19, 17 January 2007 (UTC)
Thanks. I'll do a bit of reading and try again. I am the only one posting under the Breast Cancer Fund name so I guess that clears that up. I appreciate your help. Breast Cancer Fund 22:29, 17 January 2007 (UTC) (Dana from BCF)
To be honest, your username could be a problem under the policy (if I remember, correctly, under Breast Cancer Fund, it is the name of an organization): see Wikipedia:Username. Someone will probably bring it up soon, so I figured better to let you know now. I would suggest going through the Wikipedia:Changing username process; as you only have a few edits, it probably shouldn't be to difficult on the servers.

Thanks. I'll take a look.Breast Cancer Fund 22:52, 17 January 2007 (UTC)

Rename[edit]

As requested, I have changed your name. You can now log in using the new username. Warofdreams talk 19:04, 11 February 2007 (UTC)
