GOCE invitation[edit]

Writing Magnifying.PNG Greetings from the Guild of Copy Editors, a WikiProject dedicated to improving Wikipedia articles through copy editing. You are receiving this invitation because someone has noticed the quality of your edits and your commitment to improving the content of Wikipedia. Please see our project page for more information and reasons to join. You may wish to join us during our backlog elimination drives, help fulfill editor requests, or simply become a part of our supportive community. We hope to help you so that you can help make Wikipedia a better place!

Hi Drianmcdonald, I'm Baffle_gab1978, a coordinator at the Guild of Copy Editors (GOCE). I saw your edits at Molecular diagnostics and wondered whether you'd like to join the Guild. The article is currently awaiting a GOCE copy-edit, requested here by another editor. May I ask whether you intend to further expand the article? If so, a copy-edit is probably pointless at the moment and the request can be declined. Meanwhile, I'll wish you happy editing and I hope you decide to stay around. Cheers, Baffle gab1978 (talk) 05:51, 1 October 2013 (UTC)

After the work you did turning that article form a load of incomprehensible 'stuff' to an article that is worthy of its place here I commend the invitation to you. Fiddle Faddle 08:59, 1 October 2013 (UTC)

Citing a segment of a journal article that's in Wikisource[edit]

This help request has been answered. If you need more help, you can ask another question on your talk page, contact the responding user(s) directly on their user talk page, or consider visiting the Teahouse.

As I was reading a letter relevant to Jain vegetarianism#Historical_background, I noticed it was on Wikisource. So I thought I'd add it as a reference.

It's included in a 1933 journal article (which is what I was reading). But the Wikisource cite templates seem to assume that if your article is part of something else (eg a Journal) then the whole something else is part of the Wikisource URL.

Anyway, you can see my struggles in my May 12 revision to that page; in the end, I kludged it by including the necessary info the volume. But it'd be nice to know how to get both the correct Wikilink, and the correct Journal citation.

Hi Drianmcdonald. I've tweaked the citation a little using the "chapter", "plaintitle" and "editor" parameters. The problem here is you have a letter within an article within a book, and the template doesn't seem to support that degree of precision. Hopefully I've improved the situation a bit but it's not perfect so I'll leave the help notice up. benzband (talk) 15:37, 12 May 2014 (UTC)
You might be able to get around the issue by using the {{cite journal}} template instead - cite the journal using that template and add the Wikisource link in the URL parameter. Just a thought. Yunshui  10:31, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Wrong keyboard settings? ;) Joshua Jonathan -Let's talk! 13:25, 22 February 2016 (UTC)

It looked okay before I pressed save. Perhaps there was an accidental copy and paste with the mouse that I didn't notice? I'm not sure what happened, but that'll teach me to skip preview. Thank you for catching it. Ian McDonald (talk) 13:54, 22 February 2016 (UTC)
