Vitreous[edit]

Hi Tom. Thank you for making such constructive edits to the Cerebrospinal fluid page.

Could I possibly interest you in working your magic over the Vitreous_body page? In particular, I feel the page would benefit from the expansion and explaination (not deletion) of the data in the tables. There is too much emphasis on 'floaters', and not enough on the other functions and properties of the vitreous in health and disease. Kind regards, Jkokavec (talk) 22:19, 12 April 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for the thanks, Jkokavec! I will definitely have a look. My plate is busy at the moment and I tend to work in geologic time, but rest assured I'll get there :P. Would love to collaborate there or on another page if you have time and energy! --Tom (LT) (talk) 05:40, 17 April 2017 (UTC)
Hi Tom. We are eagerly awaiting your input on the Vitreous_body page! Thank you, Jkokavec (talk) 10:28, 13 May 2017 (UTC)
Looking forward to it, Jkokavec! I haven't forgotten, but unfortunately I was only half joking about the geologic time. Can I ping you when I'm up to it? (my realistic estimate is 1-2 months). Unfortunately I have limited to to devote to WP and several articles still on my plate. --Tom (LT) (talk) 11:58, 13 May 2017 (UTC)
Hi, Jkokavec just to let you know I've started my work on the article. I do not see as many issues with regard to tables of biochemical properties, but I have removed two or three of the other tables (I have summarised one) from the article. I do not think those tables are suitable for wikipedia... see WP:NOT (a textbook, manual or respository) for more. I will try and actually expand the article in the next few weeks. Cheers, --Tom (LT) (talk) 23:49, 9 June 2017 (UTC)

Talk:Myocardial infarction/GA1[edit]

Hello, how are you? I just noticed something that seemed wrong. Nothing related to the article but the format of the review. A level 2 header (==xx==) is used for the "Taking over review" and the "Changes" section. This causes break on the talk page of the article which is why only level 3 (===xxx===) or lower level headers are used on the review page. I wasn't sure if "Changes" was part of the review so I haven't changed it but it would be great if you can fix that. Thank you for your work with the review BTW. Let me know if I can help out. Cheers, — Yash talk stalk 10:59, 29 April 2017 (UTC)

      • Thanks for pointing this out, Yash!. I will take you on on this offer! If you have time, I would greatly value someone to look over and expand the society and culture and history sections of the article (if you don't, no problem too). --Tom (LT) (talk) 12:00, 13 May 2017 (UTC)
  • Unrelated topic on the same article: I've now done the entire first pass GA review. Let me know when you're ready for me to take a second look at thing--no rush. Jclemens (talk) 04:42, 4 May 2017 (UTC)
    • Thanks... responses are in process... --Tom (LT) (talk) 12:00, 13 May 2017 (UTC)
        • I will have free time tomorrow - I will have a go at it then. Cheers, — Yash talk stalk 12:42, 13 May 2017 (UTC)
Bio barnstar2.png The Bio-star
For diligence above and beyond that expected of a typical article reviewer, exercised over months and with far more academic rigor than any other GA review I've worked with, in Talk:Myocardial infarction/GA1. Of course, the only reason it makes sense for me to demand so much and you to put up with it is that the improvements you've made to this article can and probably will save lives. (I wish there was a more appropriate Barnstar, but while we have them for tons of trivial topics, no one has made a Medicine Barnstar that I've found. This may be upgraded to that at will should one be developed in the future) Jclemens (talk) 15:35, 2 July 2017 (UTC)

Many thanks, Gerda Arendt. I wasn't aware I received this a year ago, but it's nice to be recognised :). The user Iztwoz certainly deserves another gemstone too. --Tom (LT) (talk) 12:01, 13 May 2017 (UTC)

Edit[edit]

The edit I made to add sources was replaced with a single source that does not verify the explicate claim. The editor has showed up to different pages he has never edited. QuackGuru (talk) 18:53, 12 June 2017 (UTC)

Righteo, QuackGuru. Not sure which article you are referring to here...? --Tom (LT) (talk) 20:52, 14 June 2017 (UTC)

Tom, Iztwoz has done great work sorting out a host of minor issues and fixing the ref problems. Those are all done, barring a few 'page needed's and one dead link. The remaining issue is the weakness of the Society and Culture section, where I have made some specific suggestions. I'd be pleased to see those addressed this week...?

Vagina article[edit]

I know that you support me going ahead and nominating this article for GA status, but I'm not quite ready. Not only am I busy with personal matters and don't give Wikipedia as much time as I used to, I'm more reluctant than you are to nominate an article for GA. I'm often looking for what more should be added to an article, or if it should be tweaked further. That stated, I should be nominating the Vagina article within another month or so.

@Flyer22 Reborn no pressure. The work you've been doing is great, if there's anything I can help with please drop me a line :) --Tom (LT) (talk) 15:56, 10 July 2017 (UTC)
Thanks. Flyer22 Reborn (talk) 23:35, 10 July 2017 (UTC)
Just a note regarding the recent ping on this matter: I do need your help on it so that editors better understand WP:Due weight regarding sourcing on the vaginal topic and what type of sources are acceptable for the topic. Flyer22 Reborn (talk) 15:41, 6 August 2017 (UTC)
Flyer22 Reborn... woah. I will spectate on that page for the time being, will contribute if there are some specific questions asked. --Tom (LT) (talk) 23:28, 8 August 2017 (UTC)

Be Bold when editing[edit]

Hello Tom. I noticed that you are one of the folks that pastes that "Be Bold" stamp on your welcoming notes to new editors. Personally, I think we are giving ourselves a severe headache with that stamp. e.g.: A consensus of editors spend months building a new version of a page, and just when they have concluded, an brand new editor shows up, in some cases, an uneducated moron looking for an ego fix, and takes your advice, and destroys the article. Considering that we have no clue as to the talents or capacities of any new editor, my advice would be the exact opposite of your "Bold Stamp". It would be: "Edit cautiously and respectfully". Then, once he knows what's going on, and we know his capabilities, he can increase his "boldness". I'll bet I'm in a majority here on this issue. Thanks. Pocketthis (talk) 15:54, 5 August 2017 (UTC)

@Pocketthis WP:BOLD. This is an active WP:GUIDELINE the community has endorsed. I include this because we do not have a perfect article yet and the majority of editors, for caution amongst other reasons, do not want to make additions or changes to articles. Cheers, --Tom (LT) (talk) 00:00, 6 August 2017 (UTC)
  • Thanks for the reply. There has got to be a better way to greet a brand new editor, and give him the confidence to right wrongs in articles, other than telling him to be "bold when editing". Time will prove one of us correct, or sadly, perhaps it already has. I know it is Wikipedia policy, and you are just doing your job. This post wasn't meant to be a personal complaint against you at all, but rather an editor expressing his disappointment with wiki policy. Thanks for listening. Happy editing....Pocketthis (talk) 02:06, 6 August 2017 (UTC)

Adding information on Anatomy project pages[edit]

Thanks for feed-back and the welcome. New here and trying to understand how I best can contribute. I think the knowledge-based information that is present in the Human Protein Atlas (and a large number of associated scientific publications in peer reviewed journals) regarding normal human organs and tissues would be a basic and very important piece of information to the basic description of the wiki sections that deal with organs/tissue types. A few sentences with the basis for differences between different organs, tissue and cell types should be of interest. I am trying to find the right format and content for this. I think the given references (to both published papers and external webpages should be absolute adequate. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Figgep (talkcontribs) 09:09, 13 September 2017 (UTC)

@Figgep always good to have a new contributor around. I have replied on your talk page. --Tom (LT) (talk) 11:16, 13 September 2017 (UTC)

Hi Tom (LT), trying to contribute but finding it difficult to discuss format and ways to do this. Yesterday I tried to adhere to suggestions, and made a test try on testicle, put in a new subheading, wrote comprehensive sentences and added references. Today I find it all gone, this time someone named IdreamofJeanie had deleted all without comment? Yesterday also tried to have a discussion regarding copyright violations with someone named Fuhghettaboutit. Interpreted a warm welcome from you and someone named Iztwoz, when first trying to add information to wiki pages relating to human anatomy and histology. Please advice me on how to proceed! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Figgep (talkcontribs) 08:49, 14 September 2017 (UTC)

I can't explain that. Maybe IdreamofJeanie can comment here about the reversion? --Tom (LT) (talk) 10:42, 14 September 2017 (UTC)

Reply to Nephron editing[edit]

Thanks for the heads up. It is never my intent to violate 3RR. Iztwoz and I do have legitimate differences of opinion; I believe BRD will keep the process moving forward. Which of my edits violated 3RR? Regards - IiKkEe (talk) 15:00, 13 September 2017 (UTC)

Hi IiKkEe, no problem. WP:3RR is violated when you make more than three reverts in a single 24 hours, as you did with Nephron on the 13th September. --Tom (LT) (talk) 10:39, 14 September 2017 (UTC)

I have been unable to locate three reverts in 24 hours on Nephron on 13 September - or the day before or after. Could you supply me with the times of the edits? Thanks. IiKkEe (talk) 05:05, 17 September 2017 (UTC)

Order of sections in a combined biology/drug article[edit]

I am interested in you opinion on the above subject. The article is "Antidiuretic hormone". I don't think "WPMOS section order" covers this situation. I personally would discuss the biology (physiology) first, then its use as a medication second - but that's not the way it's set up now. I would appreciate your input before I begin rearranging sections.

A second question: I've never pinged someone using ([[User:{{{1}}}|{{{1}}}]]) to invite them to a Talk discussion. Where exactly do I enter it? Talk page? Should it be accompanied by a message? Thanks - IiKkEe (talk) 15:24, 13 September 2017 (UTC)

Disregard question re section order in 1st para here - I went ahead with editing and rearranging. IiKkEe (talk) 04:16, 14 September 2017 (UTC)

Alluding to a diagram in the text of an Article[edit]

Sorry for 3 intrusions in one day. I think I'm through. I am interested to know if you know whether WPMOS has a guideline on the use of, in the text of an Article, a parenthetical allusion to an adjacent relevant figure or diagram, such as " ... parts of the animal (see labelled figure on right)". Is it allowed, discouraged, or forbidden? Thanks -- IiKkEe (talk) 16:04, 13 September 2017 (UTC)

It is not that common, because articles change so often and are displayed in different formats (eg mobile, desktop). In my experience it is better just to put an image near text and put an explanation in the caption. --Tom (LT) (talk) 10:41, 14 September 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for the input - nothing in WP guidelines forbids it, I take it. Adding a three word parenthetical phrase seems pretty innocuous to me if not overused. A picture is worth a thousand words is definitely true when it comes to the glomerular filtration barrier, the countercurrent system, or the shape of the nephron. "(See figure 1)" to me is code for "now is the time to look at the figure to grasp the word picture I am trying to convey here". I put 2 of these in the Nephron page, and they have been deleted. I'm going to reinsert them and invite Talk discussion. Regards - IiKkEe (talk) 12:54, 14 September 2017 (UTC)
