    New roles and guides!
    At Wikimania there were many enthusiastic people jumping at the chance to help out the Medical Translation Project, but unfortunately not all of them knew how to get started. That is why we've been spending considerable time writing and improving guides! They are finally live, and you can find them at our home-page!
    New sign up page!
    We're proud to announce a new sign up page at WP:MTSIGNUP! The old page was getting cluttered and didn't allow you to specify a role. The new page should be easier to sign up to, and easier to navigate so that we can reach you when you're needed!

Hello, Hordaland! I am a new wikipedia user, username:Murphyant, doing a small English project for an undergraduate course where we make a small contribution to wikipedia. I am working on a small section that I plan to add to the Circadian Rhythms page under the section: Human Health. I noticed that you are a major contributor to this article, and I was hoping you could take a look at my sandbox where I am currently working on this and give me any feedback that would help me fit my writing to the style of wikipedia - or just flat out tell me anything I am doing wrong. Here's my sandbox: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Murphyant/sandbox Thanks!! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Murphyant (talkcontribs) 19:02, 9 April 2015 (UTC)

Hi Murphyant, sorry I'm late getting back to you. I see you didn't sign your comment above. It's easy to do. Just click on the pencil icon at the top of the edit box or type four tildes (~) in a row. Sign your comments on Talk pages, not within articles, of course.
I've just questioned user:Jaaron95 on his talk page, asking why he reverted your edit to the article Circadian rhythm; it looks good to me, though I can only access the abstract. (If you have the full text, I'd love to have it! You can e-mail me. See left margin here: Tools, "Email this user".)
Looking at your sandbox:
The word nocturia needs to be wikilinked.
Remove space(s) preceding reference(s). (I fixed one.)
Multiple sclerosis should always have small (lower case) s in sclerosis and lower case m when it is within a sentence.
Regarding "associated with abnormal circadian rhythms in body temperature", I'd replace " in" with "of" or possibly "of the".
Couldn't the content of sub-section "Disruption" rather be integrated into the section(s) above?
"Administering Ghrelin to patients daily" --> lower case ghrelin.
These pages are relevant WP:MEDMOS and WP:MEDRS; you may have looked at them already. There are medical editors who do NOT like primary sources and they (try to) insist on secondary sources such as reviews. Your source(s) may be questioned or deleted by some editors.
Comparing to the article Circadian rhythm, I think your planned addition is a very good idea. You have wikilinked only terms that were not wikilinked before. The above suggestions may improve your efforts somewhat, but I think you've done a great job here! I hope you continue to contribute to Wikipedia in future!--Hordaland (talk) 16:26, 12 April 2015 (UTC)
In addition, you might want to look at the way I've fixed your Zelinski reference in the article. You had written/pasted the same ref three times, so it got shown as 3 different references in the list at the bottom. I've fixed it so that there is just one Zelinski ref in the list, pointing back to 3 places in the article; 46a,b,c. --Hordaland (talk) 18:39, 12 April 2015 (UTC)

Your failed access to a Norwegian wiktionary article[edit]

I have tried several time to duplicate your failure to access a certain Norwegian wiktionary article. I don't have a problem accessing the article that explains some finer points about what defines a kjuagutt. You might want to notify wiktionary about your access problems; my claim is that at least one user in Oslo has no problem accessing the definition of tjuagutt, on that page. --Gazprompt (talk) 21:54, 21 August 2015 (UTC)

Very strange! Thanks for writing. --Hordaland (talk) 02:03, 23 August 2015 (UTC)
