Outcrossing and allogamy[edit]

Hi, I saw your linking together of the outcrossing and allogamy pages. Those terms are certainly synonyms, but the outcrossing page is almost exclusively about a particular technique. I don't know what page title would be considered appropriate, perhaps it wouldn't change, but rather than merging the pages, I think it would be good to disambiguate that sense of the term. Perhaps it could start with a hatnote that says something like "This page is about a technique used in animal and plant breeding. For naturally occurring outcrossing see allogamy". Sminthopsis84 (talk) 14:06, 20 September 2014 (UTC)

Good point - actually I also included Self-incompatibility - they all overlap. Another solution would be an overarching page with hats to various subtopics.--Michael Goodyear (talk) 03:03, 21 September 2014 (UTC)
What would you call such a page? (My imagination seems to be at a low ebb today.) Sminthopsis84 (talk) 16:22, 21 September 2014 (UTC)
Another good question and one which I anticipated you would ask. as you may have gathered too many people create free standing pages without any thought of where they are positioned in the overall hierarchy of a discipline. In contrast I look for unifying concepts and hierarchical order. So I have gone back to the top, Biology and am working my way down, and have been dismayed by the mess. So potential parent pages might include sexual reproduction and fertilisation. This is where WP falls down compared to a planned work like EB--Michael Goodyear (talk) 03:20, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
I couldn't agree more with this view. There are far too many biology articles about individual terms which can only be understood in the context of the overall topic in which the terms are used. I've tried before to get some of them merged, with no success. Part of the problem seems to be that editors dislike linking to a section, so the norm has become "one link, one article", regardless of the duplication of explanation this causes. Peter coxhead (talk) 21:54, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
Well I will have a go at this particular glitch, but the issue in general should be taken upstairs. Otherwise we have a Tower of Babel--Michael Goodyear (talk) 02:05, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
Ah, but that's the point of the comparison with the EB: there is no "upstairs" here, just editors. Peter coxhead (talk) 08:47, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
I'm not totally convinced of that, but have no direct experience. Another project to explore. 'Editor' is a misnomer here anyway, which suggests an executive position, users might be better. The first level are the project and task forces, then one can contact administrators, and there are fora for general topics. Anyway this extreme democracy or laissez-faire, promotes anarchy! --Michael Goodyear (talk) 11:09, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

So I've made some changes at Outcrossing, to reduce the overlap with Allogamy. Sminthopsis84 (talk) 14:39, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

APG IV[edit]

Globe-trotting over? I've done some work on updating to the APG IV system, including using "Asphodelaceae" rather than "Xanthorrhoeaceae" (hooray!) as APG IV does, in anticipation of its conservation in 2017. I haven't properly dealt with articles like Asparagales, so do please have a look when you have time. Peter coxhead (talk) 08:07, 11 June 2016 (UTC)

To revise all relevant pages would be Herculean. I think each person should address their own area of experise. I have staerted by revising the APG page, which you started doing. --Michael Goodyear (talk) 12:19, 12 June 2016 (UTC)
Well, not quite as "Herculean" as some of the earlier revisions, but still quite a large task. Unfortunately, there seem very few active plant editors around at present.
The APG poster in Cole & Hilger (2016) is nice. I created the cladogram from the APG IV paper; did you check whether the poster is exactly the same? There are some uncertainties noted in the paper.
I'm currently working on the list of orders and families, so we don't duplicate work. Peter coxhead (talk) 19:27, 12 June 2016 (UTC)
It looks ok to me and they have been a reliable source to date - but no I did not check every single line! As we get further into this some of these issues can be tackled in more detail. The revisions fall into two general groups - those pages refering to APG to ensure they reference the latest version, and the taxonomic pages affected by recent changes. --Michael Goodyear (talk) 19:33, 12 June 2016 (UTC)
Looked at APG, APG IV, Angiosperms, Monocots and now working through monocot orders --Michael Goodyear (talk) 11:48, 13 June 2016 (UTC)
As you've probably seen, I've added the short and full lists to the APG IV system article in the style of the APG III system one. I need to check them and the cladogram – very easy to make a mistake (indeed there's a typo in line 2 of the abstract of the APG IV paper!). Peter coxhead (talk) 13:32, 13 June 2016 (UTC)
I missed that! I did wonder if the cladograms could be simplified. The published literature often breaks them up into sections. Even where there are no changes, eg Dioscoreales it is important to document why. I added the list in Word format to the bibliography as suggested by Byng. --Michael Goodyear (talk) 14:17, 13 June 2016 (UTC)

Great that you are working on Woolf

She certainly deserves it. Julia too. I have been trying to knock some shape into Vita. The whole article was sex obsessed and now it's a bit more even. Very uneven in other ways. I would hope for it to an encyclopedic article about a professional writer and gardener. I'm not sure what hope there is of that - esp with the upcoming film. But do add in any usefulness you encounter on your travels. Many thanks. Anna (talk) 23:42, 22 February 2018 (UTC)

Gatoclass (talk) 02:51, 13 March 2018 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

...for weighing in on the ANI discussion regarding the problems with my editing. Though a lot of it was difficult for me to hear (read) I believe I will become a better editor as a result. I do have a question about referencing. What do recommend since so many 'styles' are acceptable even within Project Med? I think it may have been you pointing this out in one of your comments. Also, bots come by and periodically change the references in articles I am working on. Then other editors change the formatting by simple things like putting " within a ref name. Since it may be that I am oblivious to this aspect of editing, your advice may help. Best Regards, Barbara   23:30, 17 March 2018 (UTC)

Barbara, don't worry about the bots putting in ". I get that all the time and it doesn't do anything. The main thing is to be consistent among all the possible styles. One thing I did notice when I was directed to look at the lead on List of vaginal tumors was that the wikitext was very difficult to read due to the very large number of citations and also their length. Many of them were full of empty fields like |language= .
By contrast look at one of my recent GA like Julia Stephen or my last FA William T. Stearn or Women's Health. What I do is to minimise cluttering the wikitext. I use two styles, but both rely on placing all the details in the bibliography, so that {{sfn|Author|Year}} is all that appears in the text. For books with page numbers, {{sfn|Author|Year|loc=p. page number}}. If you want to refer to a specific page available online with a url, I use a different style, because the url is too long. I place <ref name=name>{{harvnb|Author|Year|loc=[url p. page number]}}</ref> in the References section, then <ref name=name/> in the wikitext. --Michael Goodyear (talk) 02:08, 18 March 2018 (UTC)
I stared out using that style so that I could use a bibliography but was told it was inappropriate (by a medical editor). I know how to get around that, though, and in the future will leave a note on the talk page regarding the use of consistent referencing of the article. Excellent advice. Best Regards, Barbara   18:22, 18 March 2018 (UTC)
Well look at my HPV-positive oropharyngeal cancer and Women's health for medical examples. Some further advice, since I don't know you or your background. If you are not a content expert, be very careful about your sources and content. It is best to "triangulate", make sure three independent sources agree, before adding content.--Michael Goodyear (talk) 18:40, 18 March 2018 (UTC)
I've cut and pasted the Virginia Woolf article into my draftspace to view all the coding, styles and conventions used in this piece. I am letting you know because I don't want this action to be interpreted in any other way except to study your referencing and apply it to future drafts of mine. The triangulation suggestion makes complete sense. Some editors have mentioned that I may tend to provide more references than are needed, though. I generally don't like to add content unless there are at least two references for support, but for some rare genetic conditions, this is not always possible. I mean this sincerely: If I limit myself in the (future) to adding content that can be supported by at least two references, do you believe this may be able to diffuse some of the editing problems that I have? Best Regards, Barbara   09:45, 22 March 2018 (UTC)
You don't necessarily have to add every reference you have consulted, but finding 3 that agree gives you more confidence before adding.
With regards to the {{cite}}s with blank fields I am wondering how you are generating them, for instance are you using all the editing tools in your Preferences? If so and you use cite and the drop down templates, pasting in a url, doi or pmid should autopopulate it and not generate any blank fields. --Michael Goodyear   18:17, 22 March 2018 (UTC)

William T. Stearn scheduled for TFA[edit]

This is to let you know that the William T. Stearn article has been scheduled as today's featured article for April 16, 2018. Please check the article needs no amendments. If you're interested in editing the main page text, you're welcome to do so at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/April 16, 2018, but note that a coordinator will trim the lead to around 1100 characters anyway, so you aren't obliged to do so. Thanks Jimfbleak - talk to me? 14:40, 20 March 2018 (UTC)

Thanks, I knew it was in the works and have been keeping a close eye on the article - see the Talk page. --Michael Goodyear   15:40, 20 March 2018 (UTC)
Thank you for the "distinguished British botanist" (who even looks distinguished), your close eye, and your ambition for Virginia Woolf! --Gerda Arendt (talk) 06:46, 16 April 2018 (UTC)
There is however a downside, as I just discovered. Dozens of people trying to rewrite the article and fighting over it with edits and reverts. --Michael Goodyear   12:45, 16 April 2018 (UTC)
And thank you for the nomination! Ah, yes, Virginia - that's a challenging task :) --Michael Goodyear   12:08, 16 April 2018 (UTC)

Clarification of wording of Barbara's topic ban[edit]

Sandstein has closed the User:Barbara (WVS) ANI discussion with a topic ban worded "is topic-banned (WP:TBAN) from medical articles". Following discussion with Sandstein regarding the scope of that topic ban (User_talk:Sandstein#What_the_topic_ban_covers), it is felt that further wording is required. Therefore it is proposed that the wording of the topic ban is amended to read:

"By consensus of the community, Barbara (WVS) (talk · contribs), also editing as Bfpage (talk · contribs), is topic-banned (WP:TBAN) from health and medical topics, including anatomy and sexuality, broadly construed, and is also banned from interacting with Flyer22 (talk · contribs) (WP:IBAN)."

Virginia Woolf[edit]

I want to thank you for the work you did on Woolf's page. It pained me to see how disorganized it was, but every time I tried something, there were always issue. Is Woolf your only interested? also Vita Sackville-West needs work according to me. --Elisa.rolle (talk) 08:33, 6 April 2018 (UTC)

Elisa, I felt the same way. I had brought Virginia's mother, Julia Stephen up to GA, and on Virginia's birthday this year, and found it embarrassing, particularly since German WP had it as a GA. However cleaning it up is an enormous task. And no it is not my only interest! But I am interested in Bloomsbury, as I suspect you are. Interestingly you are the second person who has contacted me about Vita recently, but I fear that is a task for another day! And thank you, for your enormous contribution on women, here.

Invitation to participate in study[edit]

Hello,

I am E. Whittaker, an intern at Wikimedia with the Scoring Team to create a labeled dataset, and potentially a tool, to help editors deal with incivility when they encounter it on talk pages. A full write-up of the study can be found here: m:Research:Civil_Behavior_Interviews. We are currently recruiting editors to be interviewed about their experiences with incivility on talk pages. Would you be interested in being interviewed? I am contacting you because of your involvement in Wikipedia’s Women in Red project. The interviews should take ~1 hour, and will be conducted over BlueJeans (which does allow interviews to be recorded). If, so, please email me at ewhit@umich.edu in order to schedule an interview.

File source problem with File:RHSAGM.png[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:RHSAGM.png. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the page from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of the website's terms of use of its content. If the original copyright holder is a party unaffiliated with the website, that author should also be credited. Please add this information by editing the image description page.

If the necessary information is not added within the next days, the image will be deleted. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please refer to the image use policy to learn what images you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. Please also check any other files you have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Please check out "Happy" once more, for a smile, and sharing (a Nobel Peace Prize), and resolutions. I wanted that for 1 January, but then wasn't sad about having our music pictured instead. Not too late for resolutions, New Year or not. DYK that he probably kept me on Wikipedia, back in 2012? By the line (which brought him to my attention, and earned the first precious in br'erly style) that I added to my editnotice, in fond memory? --Gerda Arendt (talk) 14:33, 12 January 2019 (UTC)

Liebe Gerda, you are truly amazing. Thank you for the belated introduction and for sharing memories. No, I did not know about the episode you mention in 2012. Schöne Grüße, Michael
