Good Article nominations[edit]

Drbogdan, I noticed that you attempted to add Good Article nominations for two articles to the WP:GAN page. Unfortunately, this is a page generated by a bot, so both of your additions were overwritten because they weren't properly submitted.

Before I even get to the mechanics of submitting an article, I'd like to urge you to read the Good Article criteria, which explains what an article is judged on. You might also want to look at other Good Articles on films, to see what sorts of information are typically included. "Making North America (film)" is a very short article, and doesn't have some usual sections for films, such as Production information; these will be needed if the article is to be reviewed successfully. Any information in the article's lead section is expected to also be in the body of the article (see WP:LEAD, one of the GA criteria, for further details), and the section on reviews needs to be more in your own words rather than almost entirely quotes from reviewers (and preferably more than two to get a broader range of opinion).

The instructions for submitting nominations are at WP:GANI, along with some excellent information about the entire process. Best of luck. BlueMoonset (talk) 15:46, 22 January 2016 (UTC)

@BlueMoonset: Thank you *very much* for your comments - and suggestions - first time I've considered nominating an article for WP:GA - may have to study the process a bit more - Thanks again for your comments - they're *greatly* appreciated - and - Enjoy! :) Drbogdan (talk) 15:58, 22 January 2016 (UTC)

Genetic engineering[edit]

I did research. It is not gmo. "YouTube video" (11:25) [unsigned by: Kowwe (talk) 21:00, 1 February 2016 (UTC)]

@Kowwe: Thank you for your comments - please discuss your edits on the "talk page" of the "Genetic engineering" article - Thanks again - and - Enjoy! :) Drbogdan (talk) 02:19, 2 February 2016 (UTC)

Abiogenesis and methanol[edit]

Interesting hypothesis:[1] Cheers, BatteryIncluded (talk) 14:35, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

@BatteryIncluded: Thank you for sharing the ref link[1] - yes - agreed - interesting hypothesis - Thanks again - and - Enjoy! :) Drbogdan (talk) 16:58, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
More on abiogenesis:[2] I have not read it yet. Cheers, BatteryIncluded (talk) 07:36, 12 March 2016 (UTC)
@BatteryIncluded: Thank you for the latest reference[2] - seems worthy of course - seems hydrogen, carbon dioxide with iron-nickel-sulfur minerals (pentlandite?) may be primary ingredients in the primordial soup (so-to-speak) - part of the "Iron–sulfur world hypothesis"? - Thanks again for the reference - and - Enjoy! :) Drbogdan (talk) 13:44, 12 March 2016 (UTC)
Happy Monday: [1].[3] Cheers, BatteryIncluded (talk) 04:36, 4 April 2016 (UTC)

Another new paper, this one on a simulation of sugar synthesis in space: "Ribose and related sugars from ultraviolet irradiation of interstellar ice analogs." [2].[4] Not sure if to use this. CHeers, BatteryIncluded (talk) 01:21, 8 April 2016 (UTC)

@BatteryIncluded: Thank you for the ref[4] - seems ribose may have been created from water, methanol and ammonia - under simulated interstellar conditions in the laboratory - agreed - not sure if the study is sufficiently worthy to present atm either, although there seems to be some interest about the study in the news after a casual google search - in any regards - Thanks for sharing the link - and - Enjoy! :) Drbogdan (talk) 02:41, 8 April 2016 (UTC)

Life timeline[edit]

Hi! I see you've been adding {{Life timeline}} to a whole lot of articles. Several of them are good or featured articles. May I suggest that you slow down your enthusiasm and ask for input on articles' talk pages before adding the template? I'm sure it will be welcomed by many; but some articles already have their own version of timelines, or other templates in place, and editors may have objections or ideas about placement. — Gorthian (talk) 21:52, 10 February 2016 (UTC)

@Gorthian: Thank you for your comments - yes - agreed - no problem whatsoever - tried to add the {{Life timeline}} template to relevant articles - as a possible improvement - however - please understand that it's *entirely* ok with me to rm/rv/mv/ce the {{Life timeline}} templates (and/or related edits) of course - hope this helps in some way - in any case - Thanks again for your comments - and - Enjoy! :) Drbogdan (talk) 22:35, 10 February 2016 (UTC)

Evolution[edit]

I removed the "hatted template" you added to the recently started discussion on the evolution talk page, as it constitutes vandalism, please do not add it back, if you wish to contribute to the discussion feel free to do so without being disruptive, thanks. Willietell (talk) 23:49, 5 March 2016 (UTC)

The "hatted template" was added to the thread because you are trying to promote blatant anti-science propaganda and hypocritical lies, and not actually discuss anything at all. Ergo the template is not vandalism, and it stays as you blatantly demonstrate a profound misunderstanding of science.--Mr Fink (talk) 23:53, 5 March 2016 (UTC)

I want to apologize to USER:Drbogdan as I thought it was you who added the "hatted template" and I was wrong. I am sorry for not looking closely enough and for jumping to conclusions and coming here and accusing you of such a thing. I hope you can accept my apologies. Willietell (talk) 00:11, 6 March 2016 (UTC)

@Willietell: Thank you for your comments - no problem whatsoever - Thanks again - and - Enjoy! :) Drbogdan (talk) 01:52, 6 March 2016 (UTC)

Cult film[edit]

Hi there. I wanted to explain why I reverted your edit to cult film. The topic of this article is cult films, not transgressive pornographic films. That means that the sources must describe the phenomenon of cult films explicitly, not indirectly discuss related concepts. This is kind of important, as the article is a GA, and it could be delisted if people add their own original research. Certainly, sexploitation, erotic, and pornographic films are a part of the cult film umbrella, but to discuss them in more detail, we'd need sources to explicitly describe them in the context of how they relate to cult films as a whole. The other problem is the article is already a bit too long, and adding even more detail about specific films is kind of overdoing it. NinjaRobotPirate (talk) 04:20, 9 March 2016 (UTC)

@NinjaRobotPirate: Thank you *very much* for your comments re the reverted edit on the "Cult film" article - your comments are *greatly* appreciated - no problem whatsoever - Thanks again - and - Enjoy! :) Drbogdan (talk) 13:31, 9 March 2016 (UTC)

ExoMars[edit]

Hello! I just noticed that the ExoMars articles do not show a map of the 2 selected landing sites. The lander will go down in Meridiani Planum, but I do not find any annotated map that can be useful. Any advice and help will be appreciated. Cheers, BatteryIncluded (talk) 06:38, 10 March 2016 (UTC)

@BatteryIncluded: Thank you for your comments - *so far*, unable to find such a PD annotated map either - although found a possibly relevant reference,[1] with an unavailable (ie, non-PD ESA) map image - the reference itself may (or may not) be helpful - Thanks again for your comments - Enjoy! :) Drbogdan (talk) 17:01, 10 March 2016 (UTC)
That is VERY good. It even indicates other important landers. I will load it next. Thank you. BatteryIncluded (talk) 17:04, 10 March 2016 (UTC)

Popular press and primary sources[edit]

We do not typically use popular press for medical content. We also tend to stay away from primary sources. This is a primary source.[4] Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 13:07, 22 March 2016 (UTC)

Anjan Contractor[edit]

Hi Dr Bogdan, I saw you tend to go to conferences and understand science. Can you review Anjan Contractor, up for deletion? I work in a 'maker lab' in his home town of Houston, so I know him. But I also know that his 3D food printer for nasa is up for inclusion in the Smithsonian. He's also gotten a ton of press from 2013 to literally yesterday. Perhaps it's too advertorial and can be cut back?3Dnasa (talk) 17:49, 22 March 2016 (UTC)

@3Dnasa: Thank you for your comments - and request - busy at the moment but perhaps I'll take a look at the article at my next opportunity - Thanks again for your comments and all - and - Enjoy! :) Drbogdan (talk) 18:25, 22 March 2016 (UTC)

@Gnom: Thank you for your comments - yes - seems worthy of consideration (at least) of course - may take a closer look at the next opportunity - Thanks again for your comments - and - Enjoy! :) Drbogdan (talk) 23:17, 24 March 2016 (UTC)

Proteins in outer space[edit]

Paper[1] "This finding may appear to undermine currently held hopes that life will be found on nearby planets, but it is important to be aware that the presence of ice and water are by themselves not sufficient; there has to be an atmosphere which includes water vapour at a sufficiently high partial pressure for proteins to be active." Cheers, BatteryIncluded (talk) 17:03, 26 March 2016 (UTC)

@BatteryIncluded: Thank you for the link - seems relevant to life as we know it of course - reminds me of one of my published NYT comments (or actual NYT link)[2] re life-forms thriving without much water at all - nonetheless - study seems very interesting - Thanks again for the link - and - Enjoy! :) Drbogdan (talk) 17:57, 26 March 2016 (UTC)
I knew exposed proteins cannot maintain their tertiary form without water, but I was surprised that it is also true with low atmospheric pressure. Of course, this does not apply to spores. Cheers, BatteryIncluded (talk) 23:40, 26 March 2016 (UTC)

Template:INDEX?[edit]

I notice you put both of these on {{Human timeline}}. These only have any effect on user and user talk pages. It has no effect in the template namespace (because it's already indexed) or article space (because such user control is disabled there). What's its purpose? Also having both is redundant because {{INDEX}} just adds __INDEX__ anyway. Additionally, the way you added it introduced extra vertical space - in fact, a whole extra paragraph - which is something you should always be careful to avoid in templates.

Talk:KIC 8462852 - editing comments[edit]

Hello. You may want to check you're au fait with Wikipedia:Talk_page_guidelines#Editing_comments after some of your edits on Talk:KIC 8462852 lately. It's misleading for you to edit your own comment to remove all capslock and acknowledge that the source you're presenting is unreliable after someone has replied to your original comment saying that the source seems unreliable and making a reference to the capslock. It makes it look as if the second editor has missed your point about reliable sourcing and is repeating you, and is shouting in capslock because they themselves are angry about it. This is very confusing to someone who reads the thread at face value. --McGeddon (talk) 09:39, 16 September 2016 (UTC)
