UKZN edits[edit]

Hi, I've just started to flesh out the University of KwaZulu-Natal page and add some references, though it's the first time I've edited a page and I'm not sure if all the citations and writing style are ok. I'm doing this because many international/exchange students going to UKZN complain about the lack of online information for the university and I have to agree. By the way, nice to see someone else from Pietermaritzburg interested in Bioinformatics. I plan to specialise in it soon at the University of Edinburgh ;) MartinMorrison (talk) 17:44, 26 August 2011 (UTC)

Thanks! I will add some innocent stuff now like departments, student life, sporting etc ;-) I'll try recruit some more nerds over at the geology and comp sci departments to come in and edit in more information on their departments and lecturers. Will also add information on student exchanges and stuff. I'll try dig up some information on 2006 strike. MartinMorrison (talk) 20:23, 26 August 2011 (UTC)
Cool, I'll do that now, I'm just not sure how to make a completely new page? I need to do that for the departments also. MartinMorrison (talk) 20:37, 26 August 2011 (UTC)
Alright thanks, I will change my style but I keep getting timeouts with every edit/preview so going to take a break now ... thanks alot for the help! MartinMorrison (talk) 21:57, 26 August 2011 (UTC)
Fair enough, I'll be more careful from now on. Doesn't seem like UKZN are interested in getting their wikipedia page up to scratch anyway. I'm just going to contribute to the controversies page because I think it's the kind of information you're not going to find on the UKZN website.. — Preceding unsigned comment added by MartinMorrison (talkcontribs) 23:47, 26 August 2011 (UTC)

Hi. When you recently edited Nanny state, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Maori (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

Inviting you to WikiAfrica Incubator![edit]

Hey Kierano,

WikiAfrica invites you to support the Africa Incubator.

WikiAfrica is pleased to invite you as a self-declared African Wikipedian to evaluate the Africa Incubator. WikiAfrica has created the Africa Incubator to support and assist new authors, as they create their first articles and learn the ins and outs of contributing to Wikipedia.

The Africa Incubator is a ‘soft landing’ for new authors to develop articles that relate to Africa. It assists them in becoming compliant and knowledgeable of Wikipedia principles and rules. Based within the Wikipedia framework, the Africa Incubator is fully interactive and enables feedback, assistance and forums.

This is where we need your help! For the Africa Incubator to be successful, it needs the intervention, interaction and experience of Incubator Mentors. We are looking for a pool of active experienced Wikipedians to consistently participate in ’owning’ the Africa Incubator. Incubator Mentors will assist new comers through the editing process. They will also help test and expand the Africa Incubator, and will play a vital role in encouraging newcomers to be Wikipedians for life

Please visit WikiAfrica Incubator to give us your honest feedback and evaluation. WikiAfrica is a ground-breaking project that is designed to Africanise Wikipedia by generating and expanding 30,000 articles over two years. Find out more about this project here WikiAfrica.

Hallo, I am interested in hydronymy as it looks the language of prehistoric Europe is reflected therein. I left a message on the wikiproject rivers talkpage, just looking for editors with similar interests to exchange information. I have discovered the so called old european hydronymy is not limited to Europe but has many correspondences in Iran, India and furhter away so I think this disproves the current scholarly etymological interpretations. Presently I am trying to research Bengal and Burma. Thanks for reading.Aldrasto11 (talk) 11:16, 3 June 2013 (UTC)

Bronze Heads from Ife[edit]

Thanks for ticking Alt1, I thought we were going to discuss it forver!! - can we remove the "in 1938" as it seems that this happened earlier? Merry xmas Victuallers (talk) 11:35, 19 December 2013 (UTC)

Emil Rebreanu[edit]

Hi Kierano, just a note re the DYK nomination for Emil Rebeanu in case you don't have it on your watchlist and pings don't work on the template page! The reviewer had left a note about the refs and I've just tried loading them as well. I didn't want to just re-instate the AGF tick in case we're not addressing your query, so could you pop back and have another look at it when you get the chance, please? Thanks! I've just been trying to get some additional nominations through the process as it seems a bit log jammed at the moment ... SagaciousPhil - Chat 15:59, 20 December 2013 (UTC)

May I ask why you promoted it to prep area one, which already had a hook that included a picture, rather than one where the picture of Diekman could run? Thanks. Go Phightins! 23:32, 20 December 2013 (UTC)

DYK nomination of Robert Drayson[edit]

I read at Template:Did you know nominations/Robert Drayson that you promoted this nomination on the 19th, and Talk:Robert Drayson says it appeared on the main page the same day, but I haven't yet had a DYK notice about it. Could you please fix that?

I can't think why you changed the Alt hook which no one had approved. My suggestion was that the school did not need to be mentioned. The US has "high schools", and for all I know South Africa may, too, but it's a rare term in the British Isles and isn't used of Stowe. Moonraker (talk) 14:41, 23 December 2013 (UTC)

Template:Did you know nominations/Emil Rebreanu[edit]

Hi, I just came across the history of this DYK nomination. I didn't say there were "broken URLs", but that there were "bald URLs" (or "bare URLs"), which violates Rule D3. Yoninah (talk) 21:43, 28 December 2013 (UTC)

Flow cytometry bioinformatics[edit]

Hi Kierano,

I don't know if you have seen the comments I left at Talk:Flow cytometry bioinformatics#Identifying cell populations.

Are you able to help with answers to some of the questions. I think clarifying the situation around points 1 and 2 would be especially helpful.

Fidel Kuri Grajales DYK[edit]

I left a message on the nomination and pinged you. I'm having a bit of an issue because the DYK Check script I use is telling me I've expanded the article 5x based on readable prose but you say I still need to add about 1,800 characters. Has there been a recent change at DYK or was that calculation made in error? Raymie (tc) 19:04, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

ISMB Editathon[edit]

Hi Kierano,

Thanks for signing up for the Wikipedia editathon. Given your expertise would you be on hand to help out with any newbies?

Thanks Alexbateman (talk) 17:33, 9 July 2016 (UTC)


User:Dr. Blofeld has created Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/Contests. The idea is to run a series of contests/editathons focusing on each region of Africa. He has spoken to Wikimedia about it and $1000-1500 is possible for prize money. As someone who has previously expressed interest in African topics, would you be interested in contributing to one or assisting draw up core article/missing article lists? He says he's thinking of North Africa for an inaugural one in October. If interested please sign up in the participants section of the Contest page, thanks.♦ --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 01:28, 21 July 2016 (UTC)
