Disambiguation link notification for November 14[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Melanesia, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Sahul (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.

What do you think?[edit]

Wikipedia:BMJ/Reviewer tutorial

I'm hoping to walk them through the tutorial en masse in a conference call, so I can answer their questions as we go. But I've set it up for now so they can each do it on their own. Bedtime here. Any thoughts would be much appreciated. --Anthonyhcole (talk · contribs · email) 15:48, 16 November 2015 (UTC)

Just a couple of thoughts. First, you could mention that the target audience is not doctors, medical students, or researchers, but rather a broader public who mostly aren't capable of using the professional literature. Second you could give an overview of what we're hoping for from a review -- an assessment of accuracy (above all!), comprehensiveness, appropriate weighting, and clarity. Looie496 (talk) 16:32, 16 November 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. Done. I'll ping you when we've indoctrinated the reviewers. Or before, if something interesting happens. --Anthonyhcole (talk · contribs · email) 10:21, 17 November 2015 (UTC)
I'm asking some newbie friends over the next few days to go through the tutorial, so you'll see some activity in the BMJ section of Talk:Parkinson's disease. Please ignore it. I'll delete them once I've discussed the experience with them. (Anthony) (talk) 14:01, 17 November 2015 (UTC)

It's bedtime ime here. Would you mind fielding any questions that arise over the next few hours?

When I wake up, I'll add a section, with a little formatting, for any reviewer who has completed the tutorial, so they can post their review. If they're keen to start, would you please just add a subsection to the article talk page using their name as the heading?. Anthonyhcole (talk · contribs · email) 16:26, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

I'll field anything I see -- I won't be watching constantly. Looie496 (talk) 16:36, 23 November 2015 (UTC)
Good morning! --Anthonyhcole (talk · contribs · email) 22:07, 23 November 2015 (UTC)
@Anthonyhcole: You didn't miss anything :-), but it's good that you're back because I'm about to go offline. Looie496 (talk) 22:52, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

Your input needed[edit]

Hi Louie, I came across your name at the new pages patrol page. As a result of this conversation (which you don't need to read) I have created a draft of a BLP in my sandbox. The notability is marginal so I'd like a second opinion before I publish it. When you have a moment could you take a look and tell me if you think the new article meets WP:MUSICBIO? The article draft is here. Thanking you in advance. Cheers! -- KeithbobTalk 16:52, 16 November 2015 (UTC)

@Keithbob: I'm really the wrong person to ask. I've only written one article about a musical group, and I'm not at all familiar with the notability criteria for musicians. Looie496 (talk) 16:59, 16 November 2015 (UTC)
OK, anyone you could refer me to? I've tried BLPN and go no response.-- KeithbobTalk 17:11, 16 November 2015 (UTC)
I think Cirt does a lot of that sort of thing. Or you could try posting at WT:MUSICIAN. Looie496 (talk) 17:16, 16 November 2015 (UTC)

Contrib history[edit]

Howdy. I'm guessing that you didn't notice the oldest link was blue, in the editor-in-question's contrib history ;) GoodDay (talk) 14:19, 18 November 2015 (UTC)

I thought I had clicked the "oldest" link -- I obviously screwed up somehow. Thanks. Looie496 (talk) 14:22, 18 November 2015 (UTC)
