I know articles on Wikipedia do not belong to anyone, but I do have a personal attachment to the Progeroid syndrome article. So I want to personally thank you for taking your time out to copy-edit it and correct any mistakes I made. I want to let you know I appreciate it! Kinkreet~♥moshi moshi♥~ 17:20, 19 March 2013 (UTC)

I appreciate your help on Lower limbs venous ultrasonography. Doc Elisa 20:36, 1 May 2013 (UTC)

Your help is priceless and I have no words to say how much I'm grateful. Doc Elisa 21:28, 3 May 2013 (UTC)
Hyper-debit is the situation were there is an augmentation of the debit in one vein. An exemple of hyper-debit is the presence of an arterio-venous fistula. Another example is in a situation of deep venous thrombosis: the superficial venous system is called to drain much more blood than usually - veins can be enlarged but valves can be intact. Eye image or eye sign is the same thing. We can use "eye sign" as it is on papers. Thank you again Doc Elisa 20:37, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

Allow Me[edit]

Apologies if I caused any edit conflicts during your copy edit. I had forgotten about my outstanding request for the copy edit, since the article had already undergone the Good article nomination process. (I work on so many articles at once, I forgot!) I am so glad to have you working on the article, and I will wait until you have finished to see all of your edits and ask any questions I may have. I did remove "very" (which you added) from the lead, referring to the reception, and I also removed the comma before "Public Art Collection" since the source did not include the punctuation (and the lead became inconsistent with the infobox). Let me know your thoughts! Thanks for your contributions to the article. --Another Believer (Talk) 20:38, 30 May 2013 (UTC)

If you'll let me know when you are finished, I will be sure to add the GOCE template to the article's talk page. Thanks again! --Another Believer (Talk) 22:40, 30 May 2013 (UTC)

Hi Iztwoz! I'm working on getting Cervix up to GA-status, but I'm having a bit of trouble and was wondering if a second pair of eyes could help. I've inherited the Function section and I'm not quite happy with how it looks, but I'm really not sure what to do with it. I was wondering, if you had time, whether you could cast your eyes over that section (and maybe the rest of the article if you had time) and give it a bit of a run-over? I more-or-less think that the formatting is quite strange, but am not sure where to go. I'd be very grateful, editing can get somewhat lonely sometimes! --LT910001 (talk) 00:02, 11 March 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for that. I've read authors using "operculum" for the whole bit of cortex covering the insula, and "parietal operculum", "frontal operculum", etc. for the different bits, and I tried to retain it ... but it's clumsy expression, and I'm quite happy to leave it out.

Sebaceous gland[edit]

I've never done a GA review before. I tried to do the right thing, and get someone to help, but that isn't going as quickly as I had hoped. I am aware of the general criteria, and haven't formally applied those yet - I decided to review the prose and anything else that jumped out at me. I will address the other issues soon, but I wanted to get started.

Template box[edit]

Hello Iztwoz, I hope that you're well. Thanks for running over Bone, it's always nice to have someone to collaborate with. I created this template so that on a few articles, the 'bone' navboxes can be easily managed. You may find it useful (for perusing purposes as well). I've also made a proposal on WT:ANAT about getting rid of the 'GA' numbers which I find distracting and unhelpful. The template box ({{Human bones}}) contains, I think, our human bone templates and is useful as a single box for comparative and standardisation purposes. --Tom (LT) (talk) 21:03, 29 November 2014 (UTC)

Hi, re grey matter. The new headings and coherence among them is a good improvement: Thank you! However most of my edits to the grey matter page involve incorrect referencing, double referencing, broken sentences, and causal language not warranted by the data. I removed the "thinking about" sentence: I believe that was intended to refer to a paper which asked people to imagine being poor and showed this reduced their working memory, but without a citation, who knows. It is now deleted. If there's something substantive, let's chat on its talk page? best Tim bates (talk) 20:45, 21 December 2015 (UTC)

Issues in Cerebellum article[edit]

I'm editor-in-chief of Wikiversity Journal of Medicine, and we're about to consider a snapshot of the Cerebellum article for publication in this journal: Wikiversity Journal of Medicine/Cerebellum. This would make it easier for external sources to use and cite this work, and after we've advanced the journal these publications will be searchable in PubMed as well. As you have been one of the most active contributors to this article, we would like to include you in the "author" list, but we want these to be the authors' real names. If you approve, you may edit that article to change your username to your real name, or include it in a reply to me. Otherwise, you will be attributed by a link to the history page of the Wikipedia article. Also, the work has undergone peer review, and I'd appreciate if you could have a look into the peer review comments, and help amending the mentioned issues before publication in the journal: /Cerebellum#Peer review. You may also check at its history to see what corrections have already been made by other authors.
Best regards,
Mikael Häggström (talk) 12:39, 19 May 2016 (UTC)

Great work on the article! The only issue left I find from the peer review is to add some references to the last paragraph in the introduction. After that, I think it's ready for publication. Mikael Häggström (talk) 09:44, 19 June 2016 (UTC)

Publishing Hippocampus in WikiJournal[edit]

Hi there,

It seems you have been among the most active contributors to the Hippocampus article as well [2], and therefore, would you like to join the process of having this one as well published in the journal (which have since been renamed to WikiJournal of Medicine)? As with The Cerebellum article, it would be great if we could make it easier for external sources to cite it, and eventually bring it to PubMed.

We would now want all main authors of Wikipedia works to agree with an Agreement for having the article published in the journal (so that any conflicts of interests can be declared). After I've invited the other main authors of the article, it can then undergo peer review, and I'd appreciate if you could then help out in amending any issues raised therein.

Also, would it be all right for you to be the corresponding author of the work in WikiJournal? You can have your email displayed, or have a link to your Email User page.

Best regards,

Mikael Häggström (talk) 20:26, 9 October 2016 (UTC) Editor-in-chief, WikiJournal of Medicine

Help with reference[edit]

Hey Iztwoz. I'm having a bit of trouble understanding this reference and was wondering if you could have a quick look: [3]. I'm trying to find who gave the name "hypoglossal" to the nerve. From what I can parse, Herophilus was the first to describe the nerve, but didn't give it the name "hypoglossal". Other than that I'm having real trouble isolating that piece of information... --Tom (LT) (talk) 09:58, 26 October 2016 (UTC)


Thanks for your help and for expanding it, especially the history section. I've done a fair bit of work and will take a break for a week or so from editing it. If you are around and have time would you mind having a look / cleanup? With much appreciation...! --Tom (LT) (talk) 04:38, 13 November 2016 (UTC)

Peer review coordinator needed for WikiJournal of Medicine[edit]


We have a second peer reviewer for the Hippocampus article who should have the review in by next week.

What I mainly came to inform you about now, however, is that we have a growing number of potential upcoming articles for WikiJournal of Medicine, which in itself is good. However, together with a requirement for at least two independent peer reviews for each work, we have fallen a bit behind in article processing. Both the malaria protein article and the gastrointestinal bleeding case study were submitted about two months ago, and still have no completed peer review.

As you have signed up as associate editors, I would like you to help out as "peer review coordinator" of any of these articles. I have described what it means to be a peer review coordinator at: Wikiversity:WikiJournal_of_Medicine/Editors#Coordinator.

Also, I strongly recommend that you add the page Wikiversity:WikiJournal of Medicine/Editors to your watchlist, as well as add yourself to the public email list (unless you haven't already done so) to keep yourself updated about editorial tasks.

Mikael Häggström (talk) 16:30, 22 January 2017 (UTC)

Second peer review of the hippocampus[edit]

The issue of peer review coordinators is solved for the moment. Also, as part of the journal's new standard of having at least 2 external peer reviews for every publication, we have now received a second peer review of The Hippocampus: Wikiversity:Talk:Draft:WikiJournal of Medicine/The Hippocampus#Comments from 2nd peer reviewer
I hope you can amend these comments when you have the time. Let me know if you would prefer to have a co-author for the article to help in any amendments, and we could find one. Mikael Häggström (talk) 18:45, 29 January 2017 (UTC)

As you noticed, many of the comments in the second peer reviewer were of a rather editorial nature, as they relate to the guidelines that can just as well be applied to other articles as well. I therefore found it appropriate to give an "ediorial response" to some of them: Wikiversity:Talk:Draft:WikiJournal_of_Medicine/The_Hippocampus#Editorial_response. Yet, I think the remaining points are for the author. Mikael Häggström (talk) 20:52, 3 February 2017 (UTC)
Great work on amending the article! I've now synchronized the article in Wikiversity with the Wikipedia article so that it reflects recent edits. Could you add the sources in the image captions (such as for the one saying "Source:") at the page in Wikiversity? Also, we decided to recommend adding "Image 1:", "Image 2:" etc in image captions to allow for easier referencing.
I will then ask the peer reviewer if he thinks the article is ready for editorial board decision. Mikael Häggström (talk) 20:40, 18 February 2017 (UTC)
Hi again. Both the peer reviewer and I find the article to be ready for editorial board decision. Nevertheless, some additional suggestions have been presented by the reviewer: [[Talk:Draft:WikiJournal of Medicine/The Hippocampus#Response to update]]. Also, as mentioned in my last message there should be a source description for each image in the the article in Wikiversity. So, just let me know when you think the article is ready. Mikael Häggström (talk) 20:43, 24 February 2017 (UTC)
Actually, let me know if you think the article is not ready, otherwise I will bring it to the editorial board for publication decision shortly. Mikael Häggström (talk) 07:33, 4 March 2017 (UTC)
I can now announce that the article is published in WikiJournal of Medicine! It's been a great improvement of the Wikipedia article. The entry on the main page at Wikiversity:WikiJournal of Medicine has some of the abstract included. Let me know if you prefer a different image or format.

Hi Iztwoz! I just came across Bronchus, and the first sentence seems to have a weird term, "wright main bronchus". I'd edit it myself, but since you are so much more experienced with anatomy articles and already have worked on Bronchus, I was wondering if you could take a look, in case it actually is correct. Right now, it starts with "A wright main bronchus, also known as a main or primary bronchus, is an airway in the respiratory tract that conducts air into the lungs." Is the term "wright main bronchus" correct? --Peltirasia (talk) 16:34, 22 March 2017 (UTC)

Your revert on Stomach[edit]

Iztwoz wrote "Structure intro refers to humans and mammals so using human in subsections unnec. Also missing info is in section Other animals". -- Please check your arguments. The article is, per heading, about "vertebrates, echinoderms, insects (mid-gut), and molluscs". The sections I labeled "human ..." contain partly information generic to mammals, but in many cases the scope is restricted to humans. They are not about molluscs or insects. I believe we need clear labeling, whether in headings or in the actual text, about which organism the information is about. "Other animals" section at present is limited to vertebrates. We need the information about the invertebrates. And I believe we need to label the images as to which organism they refer to. --Vigilius (talk) 14:21, 5 April 2017 (UTC)

Hi Vigilius this is the usual formatting for anatomy articles with the main focus on the human and a section for other animals. Anybody can add material to the Other animals section - the fact that not many (hardly any) do, either shows a lack of interest or lack of available information - so please add material. There are several high standard articles on individual species and those pages can be viewed for info to add - equine anatomy, bird anatomy, frog anatomy, cattle for example. Best --Iztwoz (talk) 16:20, 5 April 2017 (UTC).
I am fine with formatting choices or headings, but it needs to be expressed - whatever way you like - what is general about ANY stomach, what is specific to mammals, and what is about humans. As it is, it does not state what you say. There is no indication in the article, that this is primarily about humans, the lead says it is about stomach in general. It is super confusing and no-one can sort out the information. I tried to do this in the article --Vigilius (talk) 20:00, 5 April 2017 (UTC)Vigilius
I've made a few changes - you say there is no indication of being primarily about humans - isn't the infobox enough? --Iztwoz (talk) 06:20, 6 April 2017 (UTC)
Thanks, much clearer tom now. No, infobox shows no indication that this is about humans. It uses an image of a human stomach, but everything else looks general. Echinodermata have nerves, an anatomy, etc. After this discussion, I assume that some information in the infobox is indeed not applicable to all animals that have a stomach, right? that is another problem then... :-) --Vigilius (talk) 21:55, 9 April 2017 (UTC)

Hi Iztwoz,

I am not understanding why my addition to the C.elegans page would be reverted? An important part is missing explaining the ease of use using C.elegans for research purposes. Do you want me to add aditional refs to support my claim? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Basmill (talkcontribs) 07:08, 26 April 2017 (UTC)

Hi Iztwoz,

CGC supplies all the genomic strains required by the C.elegans community to perform research, while LabTIE actually made a breakthrough discovery in supplying a new food type. If these additions are not wanted (which in our research world is important) than remove this line and leave the rest. Plus, if you are not into C.elegans your self why delete the previous lines that state the ease maintenance and use of c.elegans as it is clearly missing in the text now.. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Basmill (talkcontribs) 07:12, 26 April 2017 (UTC)

Hello again Basmill can you please take this to the talk page as I suggested yesterday. Your edits were of an instructional promotional nature - not of interest to a general reader - your info would be readily available to those people who want to buy the worms for research. imo. --Iztwoz (talk) 07:20, 26 April 2017 (UTC)

Meditation making your cortex thicker, based on a primary source? Think, dude. Abductive (reasoning) 02:01, 13 May 2017 (UTC)

Hello Abductive (reasoning) Firstly the article is not in the medical category; secondly the information referred to is not even in the Clinical significance section; thirdly the Oxford journals ref is completely acceptable imo. Seems to me that it's just something you don't agree with. As regards your other ref to some material you removed as it was poorly expressed - somebody has gone to the trouble of adding material with refs - because it could possibly have been better explained is no cause for removal - if you can express it better - do that. Or take it to the talk page. Best --Iztwoz (talk) 07:05, 14 May 2017 (UTC)

Human brain at GAN[edit]

Hi, I see you are working hard on this article. Tom (LT) has put it up for GA and I'm reviewing it. Since Tom is currently busy, you're very welcome to pop in to the GAN and sort any of the comments as you like. All the best, Chiswick Chap (talk) 10:42, 20 June 2017 (UTC)

Hi Chiswick Chap - sorry I didn't think anybody was reviewing it at the moment - I knew that it was up for review. I shall visit the talk page. Thank you --Iztwoz (talk) 10:48, 20 June 2017 (UTC)
Um, I see you're now starting to squash up the refs leaving no space anywhere ... text|param=...|nextbit ... this is quite unnecessary, and makes editing and checking more difficult. I suggest a global space before the | (and if you wish, after it also) is easier and tidier. Chiswick Chap (talk) 12:07, 25 June 2017 (UTC)
Chiswick Chap - thanks - later --Iztwoz (talk) 12:09, 25 June 2017 (UTC) Chiswick ChapHave just had a quick look and not sure what you mean as the refs I've added and changed using PMID etc have formatted them as they are without spaces ? --Iztwoz (talk) 12:26, 25 June 2017 (UTC)
The ideal format is like |isbn=0199920222 |year=2015 |page=157, spaced before the bar. It's not a show-stopper, and is easily fixed globally. Nor is having accessdates for books, which is not necessary. Chiswick Chap (talk) 13:18, 25 June 2017 (UTC)
Hi Chiswick Chap i just wondered what the distinction was as when entering refs using PMID or Doi they don't use the spacing. Not a worry though. i never use access dates for books - and am not even sure when to use them at other times as sometimes they get removed. cheers --Iztwoz (talk) 20:54, 25 June 2017 (UTC)
Ideally space every parameter (as a global replace would do). Many thanks Chiswick Chap (talk) 05:43, 26 June 2017 (UTC)

I'm not entirely sure I understand why you are continuing to make edits to the article that are not mandated in GAN review comments. If editors are continuing to change the article's content, that represents instability, which is a reason for failing a GA candidate. Explanation? Chiswick Chap (talk) 05:54, 27 June 2017 (UTC)

Your objection is a long time coming - as far as I know I haven't been adding any new material just basic ce and links - I had already previously mentioned on talk page that i didn't think page was ready. I'm happy to bow out. --Iztwoz (talk) 06:16, 27 June 2017 (UTC)
Gosh. I thought you were working on my comments and occasionally noticing a tweak or two on the side; but it was becoming clear you were doing something beyond that as no comments have been fixed for a while now. There's certainly no objection to fixing links and such, and most of the copyediting has been entirely beneficial, so to that extent the article was not 'ready'; I assume from where you've got to in the text that you've nearly finished anyway, so you might as well complete the job. As you can see from my remaining open comments on the GA1 page, I am now mainly concerned about the Society and Culture coverage which does not adequately cover 'the main points' as required. If you can help with those, that would be much appreciated. All the best, Chiswick Chap (talk) 06:27, 27 June 2017 (UTC)

Hi, we're nearly there now. Could you fix the "pages needed" items and the dead link? And maybe also the cognition thing (it doesn't need much, just wikilinking and mentioning really, to tie the functional material together)? Chiswick Chap (talk) 07:34, 30 June 2017 (UTC)

Hi Chiswick Chap - the dead link was fixed some time ago and am just about to add cognition; will also look at other page needed - think I did one. Best --Iztwoz (talk) 07:40, 30 June 2017 (UTC)

@Chiswick Chap Do you think that Executive function would be better changed to Cognition heading as more appropriate for function section ---Iztwoz (talk) 08:12, 30 June 2017 (UTC)

Yes, a lot less obscure, certainly. Done that. I think we're about there, will check it over now. Chiswick Chap (talk) 10:46, 30 June 2017 (UTC)


Hello, when you've created 2 more articles, could you please nominate yourself at [6]. Your articles are too good to go through New Page Patrol every time, especially as it has a big backlog. Boleyn (talk) 09:59, 26 June 2017 (UTC)

Thank you very much for helping to get this to GA, despite not being the nominator! You can definitely claim GA credit for this. Chiswick Chap (talk) 11:07, 30 June 2017 (UTC)
