January 2014[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Epipelagic. I wanted to let you know that I removed one or more external links you added to the page Filter feeder, because they seemed to be inappropriate for an encyclopedia. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page, or take a look at our guidelines about links. Thank you.

Hi. I undid your edits to the page Oyster (disambiguation). That page is a special navigational page, not an article. Information on oysters belongs in the article Oyster. Disambiguation pages are special pages that act as "signposts" to direct people to other articles on other meanings of a word. They have a particular format and are deliberately sparse on content. The goal is to direct the reader to the correct article quickly.--Srleffler (talk) 04:02, 1 June 2014 (UTC)


I have removed the paragraph you added to Bivalvia on Valvometry because it was a copyright violation. It had been copied and pasted from this website. The subject matter was interesting but needs to be expressed in your own words. Please contact me if you want any help or do not understand Wikipedia's policy on using copyright material.

Another copyright violation[edit]

I have removed the paragraph you added to Internet of Things because it was also a copyright violation of this website. Please explain the concept in your own words. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 19:55, 31 December 2014 (UTC)

Response copyright violation[edit]

I copy my own words and sentences. Is it prohibited??? I am a full position researcher with too much extra responsabilities. I can't spend my time writing the same things with different wording but I am interested in diffusing science to most people. To do it in different Wikipedia article sounds to be a possibility for that. Is it "out of law"? ~~Jechma~~

Happy New Year. Unfortunately even copying yourself is not allowed here, unless you have declared publicly that the original work is public domain or is released under a CC-by-SA licence similar to the one that covers text here on Wikipedia. Secondly, species articles on English Wikipedia are generally named in English where a suitable name exists, it is our custom with long precedent. Thirdly, we are of all different ages and experiences, but Wikipedia refuses to rely on any claim made by individuals from their experience as it is not verifiable; the requirement is for published sources that can be checked.

I might add that you can get around this in (at least) 3 ways: 1) you may paraphrase and cite your work (and even quote and cite short passages under the fair usage rules) in the same way that you would cite anyone else's work in a scientific paper. 2) you can add a CC-by-SA license to your work, say by putting the two together on your website. 3) you can send an OTRS ticket giving CC-by-SA access to your work to the Wikimedia Foundation; a volunteer will check that it is real and valid, and reply to you. Obviously that is more effort for everyone. Chiswick Chap (talk) 12:34, 1 January 2015 (UTC)

Response to your explanation[edit]

OK, I can understand your explanations as anybody can interfer in Wikipedia. But it's too much complicate and too much effort for professionals who just want to help quickly by improving popular communication. And the ability of an unknown person to decide what is good or not to a professional biologist is not satysfying. I am going back to my day work in my lab. May be I will come back to Wikipedia later on. Happy New Year too — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:11, 1 January 2015 (UTC)

Giant clam[edit]

I have also removed the information you added to the Giant clam article. That article is about Tridacna gigas whereas what you added was about Hippopus hippopus. I would have moved the information to the appropriate page but I found that much of it was copied verbatim from this site and its associated full text paper. You did not provide a reference to that research paper. I see from your user name that you are associated with this site. Wikipedia welcomes people with subject expertise but all material added should be fully attributed and copyright violations should be avoided. Here is a link to Wikipedia's copyright policies and another providing information on close paraphrasing. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 10:11, 1 January 2015 (UTC)
