Activity-based proteomics[edit]

Regarding your article "Activity-based proteomics" I would like to point out that the shown structure of the rhodamine derivative is incorrect. It is the substitution pattern at the chromophore. Kind regards, Ruben Bartholomäus (ETH Zürich) 82.130.100.77 (talk) 18:45, 6 February 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, but I haven't edited activity-based proteomics much beyond cleanup and most recently flagging it for being too technical and needing sections. The file File:Fp rhodamine.svg is by Ronhjones on WIkimedia Commons. --Kkmurray (talk) 18:55, 6 February 2015 (UTC)

Cathode ray tube is a German invention[edit]

You need to take your concerns to the article talk page. Please see WP:BRD and WP:CON. --Kkmurray (talk) 05:10, 8 February 2015 (UTC)

Regarding the use of "van der Waals" or "Van der Waals" in text[edit]

It is indeed listed as "van der Waals" in "APPENDIX 9-1: recommended spelling list" of "The ACS Style Guide (2006)". However, their recommendation is wrong. The proper way to write Dutch surnames can be found on Wikipedia at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dutch_name#Surnames. This is a matter of writing names correctly.

The same applies to "Van 't Hoff" or "van 't Hoff".

Furthermore, the ACS recommended spelling list is inconsistent: van der Waals VandenHeuvel van’t Hoff–Le Bel (use en dash, see p 124) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 83.83.182.84 (talk) 21:23, 7 March 2015 (UTC)

From van (Dutch): "Derivative terms like van der Waals radius (Dutch: vanderwaalsstraal) the "v" is not capitalised, unless it is the first word of the sentence." In any case, you need to take your proposed changes to the article talk pages or WikiProject Chemistry. --Kkmurray (talk) 23:31, 7 March 2015 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Methods in Organic Synthesis cover.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Methods in Organic Synthesis cover.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 21:41, 20 March 2015 (UTC)

Thanks. The image was orphaned when Methods in Organic Synthesis was merged into Synthetic Reaction Updates and is no longer needed. --Kkmurray (talk) 22:06, 20 March 2015 (UTC)

Why spell out NMR?[edit]

Trying to figure out the motivation to move paramangetic NMR ... to Paramagnetic Nuclear Magnetic .... Might be something that others would want to have a say in?--Smokefoot (talk) 14:37, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

Motivations are WP:ACRONYMTITLE and naming consistency within Category:Nuclear magnetic resonance. The consensus seems to be spelling out NMR in article titles. If that consensus isn't clear or there is a desire for acronym-only or system of mixed acronym/spelled out titles, then there should be a discussion. --Kkmurray (talk) 15:06, 22 March 2015 (UTC)
Well darn, the time to have that discussion was a few days before the action. Kind of a team sport here in the chem project, or was. When was the last time you discussed a nuclear magnetic resonance spectrum? --Smokefoot (talk) 17:43, 22 March 2015 (UTC)
I don't see how WP:BRD is inconsistent with teamwork. In any case, I started an RFC at WikiProject Chemistry.[1] --Kkmurray (talk) 22:36, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for April 15[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Inlet ionization, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Fragmentation (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Move review for Carbon (fiber)[edit]

External links[edit]

Kkmurray,

I see you have deleted multiple posts from March that I had posted from nanoHUB.org. I do not have any of the original messages sent, but some pages we posted to would be semiconductor, quantum mechanics, etc. What should we do differently to keep posts up?

Thanks,

ToriToristevoo1223 (talk) 17:15, 20 April 2015 (UTC)

I only see one contribution from User:Toristevoo1223, but presumably you mean the many links to nanohub.org that are being added to article external links sections. You should be aware that Wikipedia is not a mirror or a repository of links, images, or media files (WP:NOTREPOSITORY). See Wikipedia:External links: external links to a site that does not provide a unique resource are not appropriate. The content should be added to expand the article. --Kkmurray (talk) 19:07, 20 April 2015 (UTC)

External Links removed from "Physics Education" page[edit]

Hello!

I am new to wiki-editing, so I wondered if perhaps I stepped on a rule or something. In my recent additions to the page "Physics Education", under the "Major areas of research" I included some external links within the paragraph text to different curriculum web-pages.

I see that they have been tagged as "dead links" and removed. Was this because it was inappropriate to have external links in the paragraph text? Should they have been references instead?

They certainly were live, I tested them and they led to the right pages...

Thanks!

The guidelines are at WP:NOTLINK and WP:EL. Concepts should be integrated into the body of the article; unique resources that can't be integrated are potential external links. A good rule from WP:ELNO is that "one should generally avoid providing external links to any site that does not provide a unique resource beyond what the article would contain if it became a featured article." --Kkmurray (talk) 01:09, 18 July 2015 (UTC)

Change in your user rights[edit]

Your Wikipedia account was previously granted a user right called "course instructor" by the Wiki Education Foundation. That right enabled you to create a course page through the EducationProgram MediaWiki extension. Starting in fall 2015, the Wiki Education Foundation has discontinued its use of this extension. Going forward, users should create course pages through the Wiki Education Foundation website. That application is more user-friendly, and any content is automatically mirrored to Wikipedia. To prevent confusion, we'll be removing your "course instructor" user right, as it is not needed with the new system. This is simply a notification of the technical change to your account. No action is needed from you at this time.

If you plan on teaching with Wikipedia for the fall 2015 term, please email me (helaine@wikiedu.org) for instructions how to create your next course page using our new system. --Helaine (Wiki Ed) (talk), sent by MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 02:34, 21 July 2015 (UTC)
