Reverts on COPD[edit]

Hello Jdwolff - I don't understand your reverts of info on Genetics section of COPD page - you say one is primary but is linked to NHLBI page and the other is clearly linked and described on Clinical trials page - it is ongoing why not mention it? There is another link that I was going to enter relevant to lung anatomy and branch variations from Science titled COPD risk:Clues from the tree branches. For future editing is material from NHLBI not acceptable? Thank you --Iztwoz (talk) 09:45, 7 July 2019 (UTC)

Iztwoz Perhaps we should be discussing this on the talk page, as per WP:BRD.
Ongoing trials are generally not notable in medicine articles, unless the results are very widely anticipated to be significantly practice-changing. Generally speaking a secondary source is required to demonstrate this.
As for the lung anatomy study, it requires a proper secondary source and not a press release. JFW | T@lk 09:49, 7 July 2019 (UTC)

Categorization question[edit]

Hi, please see the discussion at Wikipedia:Categories for discussion/Log/2019 July 7#Category:New Christians (conversos) that is trying to determine how best to classify Conversos/Marranos/Anusim. New Christians or Crypto-Jews or both. Your WP:EXPERT input would help the discussion. Thanks, IZAK (talk) 22:54, 10 July 2019 (UTC)

Administrators' newsletter – August 2019[edit]

News and updates for administrators from the past month (July 2019).

Guideline and policy news



  • Following a research project on masking IP addresses, the Foundation is starting a new project to improve the privacy of IP editors. The result of this project may significantly change administrative and counter-vandalism workflows. The project is in the very early stages of discussions and there is no concrete plan yet. Admins and the broader community are encouraged to leave feedback on the talk page.
  • The new page reviewer right is bundled with the admin tool set. Many admins regularly help out at Special:NewPagesFeed, but they may not be aware of improvements, changes, and new tools for the Curation system. Stay up to date by subscribing here to the NPP newsletter that appears every two months, and/or putting the reviewers' talk page on your watchlist.

    Since the introduction of temporary user rights, it is becoming more usual to accord the New Page Reviewer right on a probationary period of 3 to 6 months in the first instance. This avoids rights removal for inactivity at a later stage and enables a review of their work before according the right on a permanent basis.
