Peer review[edit]

Hi,

I've removed the peer review you started for Anosmia because it's not needed. You've done what you need to do by tagging the assertion dubious and pointing out on the talk page that it's not supported by the cited source. If no one responds with a better source, you can just go ahead and remove the claim. If it does turn into a dispute, you could use something like Wikipedia:Third opinion -- it's not really what peer review is for.

If you have any questions, just drop me a note on my talk page. —Celithemis 10:03, 15 April 2007 (UTC)


I followed the instructions at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Disputed_statement because I came across a statement which seemed inaccurate.

One of the steps is to start a peer review, but that was deleted soon after I posted it. What instructions should I follow?

All you need to do is give it a little time to see if someone provides a better source. If not, then just remove the claim. That's an everyday part of editing articles on Wikipedia.
The dispute resolution processes are for when editors just can't agree on something, even after discussing the issue on the talk page. That hasn't happened yet here, and chances are good that it won't. —Celithemis 23:40, 16 April 2007 (UTC)
...And I think those instructions at Wikipedia:Disputed statement must date back to a time when peer review served a different function. Sorry, that's really misleading. I'll see about changing them. —Celithemis 00:05, 17 April 2007 (UTC)
