Thanks for "wikifying" the additions I made on the Migraine page. What would I do without you? :-)
--TeriRobert 04:34, 28 September 2006 (UTC)
Hi MeekMark, thanks for commenting on the todo list, I have changed it and made a start on some of the refs. --apers0n 17:54, 12 October 2006 (UTC)
Thanks for your edits to the temple pages --Trödel 07:26, 2 January 2007 (UTC)
Hi there, I have reverted a change made by User: 220.127.116.11 and left a message on the talk page of botulinum toxin and his own. I'm leaving a message here because I think the user is referring to you see this edit when he says someone keeps reverting his changes. This is more FYI than anything else. All the best.

Brigham Young University Wikiproject
This new wikiproject has been proposed at Wikipedia:WikiProject Council/Proposals#Brigham Young University. Please sign up in order to improve the quality of BYU related articles on wikipedia, including BYU-Idaho and BYU-Hawaii. Thanks. Wrad 01:21, 30 August 2007 (UTC)
I am a psychologist and researcher. I added some sorely needed information on pages for various neuroleptic drugs. All of this information was well cited by first tier journals. I would like to discuss returning my information to those articles. Please respond.
- I appreciate you taking the time to discuss this rather than quickly reverting the reverts! My main concern was that the exact same text was inserted into four different articles (Quetiapine - diff, Clozapine - diff, Risperidone diff, and Ziprasidone diff). If the information does apply to all four, perhaps the information should be placed in atypical antipsychotic along with any necessary exclusions. IE: "4 of the atypical antipsychotics, www, xxx, yyy, and zzz, have the following issues rasied:"
- I looked up the first reference you noted (PMID 1565705) on Google Scholar and found an interesting article that calls into question many of the possible conclusions that your edit proposes: What Did the WHO Studies Really Find? -- Schizophrenia Bulletin So I wonder about the validity of the remainder of the references.
- I also think that the criticism sections should have come later in the article; it seems that most articles place criticism sections later in the article.
- Beyond these points, the points you bring up are interesting and informative; if the tone was lightened up a little, perhaps more people may consider the information rather than immediately discount it.

- Hi. The issue that concerns me primarily is that there is nothing but positive information on the wiki pages for all of these drugs. However, this is far from an accurate reflection of the way they are seen in the academy and by mental health advocates. Reading the talk page for seroquel I learned that the article was subject of a news story for biased editing by the drug company. Since many people will read these pages who are considering taking these drugs, I believe it is important to show the full range of cautions. Neuroleptics as a class of drugs are considered dangerous by several noted academics, journalists, and mental health advocates. They are being phased out of use in Scandinavia. The drug companies spend billions of dollars each year for marketing, and most of the positive studies can be linked to their funding. My hope is that people be fully informed prior to taking them due to the withdrawal side effects. How do you recommend I proceed?
- Thanks Postcrypto (talk) 18:33, 24 March 2008 (UTC)
Hello. In addition to MeekMark's well thought-out comments, I would like to add a few. The proposition that “these medications ... can ... lead to the growth of new dopamine receptors over time” is news to me. However, it seems to be based on claims in the book “Mad in America: Bad Science, Bad Medicine, and the Enduring Mistreatment of the Mentally Ill.” Anyone can say anything in a book. A reference to the primary literature is needed.
Also it is not true “there is nothing but positive information” in Wikipedia regarding these drugs. The quetiapine page contains the following negative statements: 1. “quetiapine was found to make cognitive functioning worse in elderly patients with dementia”, 2. the article lists akathisia as a side affect and the akathisia page describes this side affect as “chemical torture” and 3. “The rare, but life-threatening, neuroleptic malignant syndrome may also result from quetiapine use.”
In addition, it does not follow from the fact that these drugs harm some people that they harm everyone. It is important to show respect for the rights of individuals who can benefit from these drugs.
Postcrypto's main point appears to be that mentally ill individuals are being mistreated. I certainly agree with this proposition.  There is already a stub for Mad in America on Wikipedia. Expanding this stub may be a good place for Postcrypto to start. KBlott (talk) 22:02, 24 March 2008 (UTC)
Revisit WP BYU
Hello. I noticed that you are a member of WikiProject Brigham Young University. Since we have recently overhauled the project's main page, I wanted to invite you to revisit the WP page and get involved however you can. Go Cougars! --Eustress (talk) 03:36, 18 April 2008 (UTC)

Thank you for the help on the migraine surgery and edits. I added an external link to the department of plastic surgery. I think this would be more formal and not considered advertisement etc since it’s a university. I also wanted to include the American Migraine Center since its one of the major institutions specializing in migraine surgery. What do you think?
- I think that if it is a major "vendor" of migraine surgery, as opposed to strictly a primary research center, then it is an advertisement. MeekMark (talk) 12:15, 4 June 2008 (UTC)
there is nothing POV about the weight of evidence which says acupuncture doesn't work. pls reconsider your position. This is not an ad for acupuncture, it is an encyclopedia. Mccready (talk) 15:45, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

Thanks to all those who helped out with BYU-related articles this last month, and a big thank you to Wrad for helping get June's Collaboration (BYU Jerusalem Center) to GA status. I look forward to working with you on this month's article. Go BYU! --Eustress (talk) 17:12, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

Thanks to all those who helped out with BYU-related articles this last month, and a big thank you to Wrad for helping make some big strides on July's Collaboration (BYU Hawaii). I look forward to working with you on this month's article. Go BYU! --Eustress (talk) 00:41, 2 August 2008 (UTC)
Wikipedia articles, and specially a FA as multiple sclerosis should rely on secondary sources which in the case of medical articles are peer-reviewed reviews in reliable journals.(See WP:MEDRS) Your addition is a primary source and gives most probably undue-weight to a characteristic that is prone to occur in MS. That is the reason why I deleted it.--Garrondo (talk) 08:25, 16 February 2010 (UTC)
Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference
Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.
On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was
true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to
false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and you will still be able to manually mark your edits as being minor in the usual way.
Articles you might like to edit, from SuggestBot
SuggestBot predicts that you will enjoy editing some of these articles. Have fun!
SuggestBot picks articles in a number of ways based on other articles you've edited, including straight text similarity, following wikilinks, and matching your editing patterns against those of other Wikipedians. It tries to recommend only articles that other Wikipedians have marked as needing work. Your contributions make Wikipedia better — thanks for helping.
