Hi Kohlasz, I hope you see this message ! Thanks for your kind words regarding my minor editing of the Chemotaxis page. I found the article very interesting, which is why I decided to correct some English mistakes that I saw. Of course I appreciate that English is probably not your first language, so well done that 99.9% was correct !
I made three sets of changes I think, so if you go back further through the history you can see them all. I was a bit unsure about changing the word "frequently" to "commonly", but commonly sounds better in English - "frequently" has the meaning that the test would be used many many times, whereas "commonly" implies that the type of test is used more than others. So unless there were millions of tests every day, then "commonly" is a better word. I hope you understand the subtle difference.
- I made a few more corrections, and some stylistic changes that make it read better in English. If you like, I can propose it as a featured article for you. Let me know if you want me to do this. Salsa man 08:24, 27 September 2006 (UTC)
Each time I look - it gets prettier.
One more vote for the coordinator of the Molecular and Cellular Biology Wikiproject
Since two of the three editors nominated for Coordinator of the MCB Wikiproject declined their nominations, one more vote has been posted: should the remaining nominee, ClockworkSoul, be named as the coordinator, or should nominations be reopened? Every opinion counts, so please vote! – ClockworkSoul 17:51, 17 October 2006 (UTC)
Molecular and Cellular Biology Wikiproject Newsletter
|When people visit the project, the very first thing that they see tends to be the project's main page, and with this in mind, the main page has been completely overhauled. To enhance readability the various "goals" sections have been merged, and a detailed "how you can help" section has been added. To increase accessibility for more established members, the links to any resources that were in the main body text have been moved onto the navigation bar on the right. Finally, the whole page has been nicely laid out and given a nice attractive look.|
|I'm proud to announce the addition of out newest feature: peer review! The MCB peer review feature aims serve as a stepping stone to improve articles to featured article status by allowing editors to request the opinions of other members about articles that they might not otherwise see or contribute to.|
|We’ve had quite a bit of progress on the worklist article in the past month. Not only has the list itself nearly doubled in size from 143 to 365 entries, but an amazing three articles have been advanced to FA status, thanks in great part to the efforts of our very own TimVickers! Remember, the state of the worklist is the closest thing we have to quantifying the progress of the project, so if you get the chance, please take a look at the list, pick a favorite article, and improve it!|
|Last month's Collaboration of the Month, cell nucleus, was a terrific success! In one month, the article went from a dismal stub to an A-class article. Many thanks to all of the collaborators who contributed, especially ShaiM, who took on the greatest part of the burden. This month's Collaboration of the Month, adenosine triphosphate, isn't getting nearly the attention of its predecessor, so if you can, please lend a hand!|
|The project has a new coordinator, ClockworkSoul! The role - my role - of coordinator will be to harmonize the project's common efforts, in part by organizing the various tasks required to make the project run as smoothly and completely as possible. Many thanks to those who supported me and those participated in the selection process.|
This month's winner is proteasome!
featured article status. Last month's collaboration was adenosine triphosphate.
- Oh my goodness: I didn't even notice, and I copy/pasted it onto everybody's talk page! Thanks for pointing it out. – ClockworkSoul 21:35, 1 November 2006 (UTC)
Chemotaxis and categories
Hi, sorry about not getting back to you sooner. You were asking about my topic - I am not really an expert on anything, I just try to improve the wikipedia... Salsa man 23:22, 27 November 2006 (UTC)

Chemotaxis and Cell biology
Dear Serephine, I could find that you made some modifications on the 'Chemotaxis' and Chemotaxis assays' pages. Do you really feel that the above mentioned two topics have now relations to 'Cell biology'?
After 15 years working in chemotaxis research I think this is one of the most underlined relation of chemotaxis, in theoretical and practical respects, too. I am ready to accept all evidences against my opinion. Please share with me your points about this. Best regards from Kohlasz 08:14, 19 December 2006 (UTC)
- Hi Kohlasz - I've been doing some major category reshuffling with the aim of getting non-core articles in Category:Cell biology into ones a bit more suitable, as this root category has become quite clogged and unwieldy. I do not contest the relatedness of the 2 pages to cell biology as a whole, however I do not think that they are core articles in the discipline. You will notice that both still remain accessible from Category:Cell biology through subcategories: for chemotaxis the path is cell biology > cell movement > taxes, and for chemotaxis assay the path is cell biology > cell signaling > signal transduction.
- Personally, I think that chemotaxis assay doesn't really suit the category Category:Signal transduction and would be better suited to the category above it - Category:Cell signaling. But I'm not well versed on the nature of the assay, and so I didn't change that category. I hope this sheds some light on why I removed both articles from the Category:Cell biology and placed them in relevant subcategories. I look forward to your discussion on the matter. Thanks, -- Serephine ♠ talk - 14:38, 19 December 2006 (UTC)
Dear Serephine, I can accept the evidences listed in your response, hoever, I do feel that chemotaxis belongs to a core part of Cell Biology. I have still one problem with the path what was described by you: it is valid, however it makes harder to find the keyword 'chemotaxis', in this position is is more hidden. But it is OK, if you feel that this modification corfirms with the major concepts of Wikipedia. In the case of 'chemotaxis assays' the subcategory 'Laboratory techniques' is very good. I hope that 'Laboratory techniques' will cover more and more relevant pages over chemotaxis assays.
Thanks for your mail. I hope you understand my feelings concerning the chemotaxis related events of biology.
Best regards from Kohlasz 20:24, 19 December 2006 (UTC)
- Thankyou for your understanding - I apologise if it seems like I've relegated a favourite area of your research into the bowels of the category-system... but I really do believe that it improves Wikipedia as a whole. However, your discussion has encouraged me to place the Taxis page into the main Cell Biology category, as I think the concept of movement towards a directional stimulus is an important concept to many areas, and therefore worthy of inclusion. This page contains a predominant link to Chemotaxis as well as other taxes. Thanks, -- Serephine ♠ talk - 00:23, 20 December 2006 (UTC)
Hey, thanks for contacting me about the Chemokawatsits... I'd say go ahead and work the links into the articles; it's obviously highly relevant, and you know what they say, "be bold in your editing". It would be nice to get that "this page needs more links" tags removed. Kineticturtle 08:01, 29 December 2006 (UTC)
Hi again, I edited Chemotaxis and added a link to Chemokinesis where the word "Chemokinesis" was already present in the article. I also edited an already existing link in Chemotaxis assay to avoid a redirect. Kineticturtle 00:15, 2 January 2007 (UTC)

WikiProject Cell Signaling
I see you listed yourself as a participant on WikiProject Cell Signaling. This project has been reactivated, if you are still interested. Biochemza 20:48, 3 November 2007 (UTC)
Hi Tomtheman5, I have found your massage on the image uploaded by me. I am sorry but I have no practice in SVG. What sould I do to save /transform my image to SVG? Thanks for your help in advance. Best regrds from Kohlasz (talk) 12:15, 8 April 2008 (UTC)
- I went ahead and converted it for you (You can find it at Image:FPR-pathway.svg). In the future, I wouldn't worry too much about this tag - there are tons of people here who know how to convert images to a scalable vector format, and that tag just notifies them that your image is a good candidate. However, if you're curious, the program that I used to convert this to SVG is called Inkscape. It's open-source, and you can download it at www.inkscape.org.
- As a side note, you may want to consider uploading your free images to the Wikimedia Commons, rather than the English Wikipedia. If you upload it to the Commons, then it is immediately available to each of the 255 Wikipedias out there. I'm here if you have any questions about it, just let me know! tiZom(2¢) 17:48, 8 April 2008 (UTC)
Beer category decision
A discussion has been opened on changes that have been made to the existing Beer category system. The changes reverse the decision made by the Project in April 2006. The changes were based on agreement by only two people, and by a discussion that took place outside the Beer Project. There may be some merit in the changes, and to prevent future conflict it is important that there is some discussion of the matter. If you're interested, please see Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Beer#Brewery_cats. 15:47, 14 July 2008 (UTC)
Regarding the terminology for the microtubule arrangement in motile cilia/flagella, I just changed it to what I was used to hearing. I working in a lab for two years that studies cilia/flagella, and we always used the terminology "9+2" for motile cilia and "9+0" for primary cilia. I guess this does treat the doublet microtubules as single units rather than two separate, but for whatever reason this is the way the cilia/flagella community talks about it. If you want to look into it further, here's a review article where this terminology is used:

Have your group add no more material to any article that is not accompanied by sources, preferably third-party, independent reviews, book chapters, etc. Contributors that come and add large amounts of material only to depart create a difficult situation, because they often violate WP:VERIFY and WP:ORIGINAL RESEARCH rules, leaving an article with bad precedents having been set. The chemotaxis article for one, has continued in the original pattern set, with other editors following the pattern set by at least some of your group, of adding material without sources. These follow-on editors, however, have lacked your groups' espertise, and as a result, that article is (and I would guess most of your articles may be) decaying in the direction of being poor representations of these important organismal and molecular fields.
