Welcome[edit]

Indeed, congratulations, this was a much quicker start than most editors. It took me months before my edits were not reverted. Hope you can continue to contribute. The Specific language impairment article is not my area of expertise, but in general many scientific fields have been badly neglected on Wikipedia, compared to, say, pop singers or TV shows. Here are some suggestions:

  • Consider making smaller changes at a time. For example, work on one paragraph or section, save that, move onto the next section, etc. this reduces frustration if you get interrupted or distracted and do not finish, your computer or wikipedia goes down, reduces the chance of wholesale deletions like the interwiki and categories, and makes it easier on other editors to review your work.
  • Consider using the {{Cite}} family of templates. For example, using {{Cite journal}} for journal articles formats the citations in the style of article titles in quotes, journal names in italics, etc. and allows |doi= x parameters to specify the DOI code (or isbn= for books, etc) which allow readers to just click on the link and order the paper. There were a couple of these in the original article if you want examples - look at the history for details.
  • Consider adding more wikilinks to related subjects. For example, if there are notable researchers or authors with articles in wikipedia, readers would like to click on them for more info. An introduction normally discusses the encompassing topic with wikilinks, and then discuss at some point any other relevant articles and how they relate. Some of this was in the original article.
  • Consider fewer references. Wikipedia should be a reasonable compromise between peer-reviewed scientific journals and purely unsourced opinion of blogs. For example, you can often find a few good overview sources, and use <refname="blah">Source info</ref> the first time, and then just say <ref name="blah"/> subsequent times to cite the same source. Saves time and makes it easier to review.
  • It might be worth reviewing the "Further reading" list that was deleted and see if any of those might still be relevant. These are generally additional to the cited references, not duplicated.

December 2011[edit]

Hello! I'm a bot created by another Wikipedia editor. I wanted to let you know that I removed a link that you recently added to the page Stanislaw Burzynski here. I did this because http://deevybee.blogspot.com/2011/12/pioneering-treatment-or-quackery-how-to.html is probably inappropriate for an encyclopedia. We usually avoid linking to blogs, forums, and social media sites.

We appreciate your help in making Wikipedia better for everyone. If I made a mistake, feel free to undo my edit. If you have any questions, you can ask at the Help desk.

Thank you! --XLinkBot (talk) 03:08, 12 December 2011 (UTC)
