    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: 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)

Help me![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.

ClueBot III archives my talk page. I regret that I asked for such frequent archiving. I've looked at several pages trying to figure out how to make the bot visit me less frequently, but haven't found an answer (that I can understand). Please help me with that.

A related question: On my wandering looking for help, I saw an archive box I liked -- can't find it again (of course). It has one line per year, like this:


where each month that contains anything is clickable. I presume that there is also a keyword search. Do you know how to make that compact table of my current system? Thank you very much!

Hordaland (talk) 16:40, 5 September 2015 (UTC)

As far as I am aware, there's really only {{archive box}}, which can be coded to display pretty much any configuration of archive names and locations you'd like. There's a fair amount of information at this subsection for archives, which might have been what you saw originally. I'll leave the helpme for the Cluebot stuff, since I don't use it. Primefac (talk) 17:18, 5 September 2015 (UTC)
Cluebot cannot visit the page less frequently, but you can increase the time threads are left on the page by changing the |age= bit in the cluebot config. As for the archive box, I believe you are refering to {{Month-year archive nav}}, I can knock something together if you want it included in another wrapper, just let me know what needs combining :) Mdann52 (talk) 17:33, 5 September 2015 (UTC)

I have added a line that tells the bot to only archive your talk page if there are at least four threads to be archived; if you still feel it visits you too often, you can increase that number. If you simply want the bot to leave messages on your talk page for longer, you could change the age= parameter.
Regarding the archivebox, how about this? The disadvantage is that you'll have to manually add a line once per year. On the plus side, your numbered archives are included, too. I've also removed the {{MonthlyArchive}} template which didn't seem to work as intended, but apparently ate into the number of expensive parser calls allowed on this page, yielding a warning.

Wow! Thank you all, @Primefac:, @Mdann52:, @Huon:! This helpme system is a godsend. I've only used it a few times (once someone wrote that s/he couldn't help, but added "helped" anyway -- an eager newbie presumably); it gets better and better! In this case, I spent a lot of time searching and reading, wrote helpme in frustration and went to bed. Halfway thru the day's first cup of coffee, I discovered all your help. Many points added to "sense of community". It's like magic! --Hordaland (talk) 17:20, 6 September 2015 (UTC)

Removing first line " { { Archive box " and last line " } } " from this version of archive box, in hopes that ClueBot uses the one at the top of the page, when that time comes. --Hordaland (talk) 01:59, 13 October 2015 (UTC)


Dude, you can't have a diagnosis of somnolence. Would it make sense to say you can have a diagnosis of hunger, for example? Somnolence is just somnolence. It's a symptom (if you don't consider natural causes of somnolence, like being tired). Outedexits (talk) 06:01, 2 November 2015 (UTC)

I'll keep the paragraph because it is well referenced now, but I'll see where I'll put it. Outedexits (talk) 06:10, 2 November 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]
