Reference Flags[edit]

Thanks for your comments on the rubidium chloride entry. I do agree with the idea that scientific knowledge need not be tagged by country in every situation... and must admit that the flags were a bit of a novelty. It is interesting to see where the information comes from but not quite necessary in this setting. And as for the biomarkers entry, it would definitely be nice to see tightening and additions - but I'm not too familiar with this area. --Kelly Kohnen 04:49, 27 March 2006 (UTC)

protein domains[edit]

I think navigation boxes can be useful for linking Wikipedia readers to related articles in a way that can be more user-friendly than plain "see also" sections and large categories. I was imagining that there might eventually come to be a network of protein domain navigation boxes. However, that would require someone putting some thought into how to make such a collection of navigation boxes truly useful. I think one navigation box that tried to include every protein domain would not work. Similarly, large categories should be split up into networks of semantically meaningful subcategories. --JWSchmidt 03:28, 9 March 2006 (UTC)

RE: merger of Fasta Sequence into FASTA format[edit]

Cool! You actually did it! There should be a barnstar around for those who perform the thankless task of merging two or more articles with essentially the same content. --hydkat 09:41, 30 March 2006 (UTC)

Disambig'ed Biomarker[edit]

Created Biomarker (disambiguation), Biomarker (chemicals) and Biomarker (medicine). Copied contents of Biomarker to them. Added respective templates and disambig info to each page. Plz correct it and tag Biomarker for deletion if everything is OK... --hydkat 21:39, 31 March 2006 (UTC)

I believe, since it seems a valid petroleum industry term, that it should fall under a petroleum category with the rest of the petroleum industry. Suppose we change it to Biomarker (Petroleum) or some such term to not lose the context? We could also call it oil biomarkers [1]? BTW is Biosignatures in Geochemistry the same thing as this entry? --hydkat 18:09, 1 April 2006 (UTC)
Looks like you now have some more additions to your main space edit count :) --hydkat 06:03, 3 April 2006 (UTC)
Biomarker (petroleum) bluelinked, I can't find the link to Biomarker (chemicals) in the disambig page. Can you add a appropriate entry? --hydkat 05:54, 4 April 2006 (UTC)


No agreement was ever reached on the issue. The only other two people to comment on that discussion were possibly sockpuppets, because they haven't done anything since commenting there. Ardenn 03:24, 12 April 2006 (UTC)

My interiptation is that they aren't part of the consensus, because they haven't contributed at all. As for the cleanup tag, look at the article. It's one large thing, instead of being broken up into nice sections, etc. Ardenn 16:17, 12 April 2006 (UTC)
Their not truly part of the community if they don't contribute. Ardenn 16:46, 12 April 2006 (UTC)

License tagging for Image:OHRI letterhead.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:OHRI letterhead.jpg. Wikipedia gets thousands of images uploaded every day, and in order to verify that the images can be legally used on Wikipedia, the source and copyright status must be indicated. Images need to have an image tag applied to the image description page indicating the copyright status of the image. This uniform and easy-to-understand method of indicating the license status allows potential re-users of the images to know what they are allowed to do with the images.

Invasion help[edit]

What, me do some work? Nah. OK, I'll do 10% at least of the 600. Just tell me when to start. Paul Beardsell 21:53, 11 January 2007 (UTC)


Hey, you should know this'll be nominated-- by someone else -- for deletion if you do not add some 3rd party references. DGG 23:35, 1 February 2007 (UTC)

Page move[edit]

Hi Miguel, I noticed that you did a cut-pasted manual move from BIRDEM to Bangladesh Institute of Research and Rehabilitation for Diabetes, Endocrine and Metabolic Disorders. This type of cut paste move destroy's the page history, and also didn't move the talk page. A better, and standard way to do this is to use the page move function, you'll find the link above each page. This preserves page edit history, and also, in most cases, can move the talk page properly too. Thanks. --Ragib 23:55, 1 February 2007 (UTC)

POTY vote[edit]

Hello. Thank you for your interest in the 2006 Picture of the Year contest. To vote, you must be an established Wiki editor with at least 100 edits registered either on your Commons or on your home wiki account (eg on one of the Wikipedia sites). You don't have 100 edits on your Commons account, but if you do on your home wiki, please add a diff pointing to a statement on your home wiki talk page which confirms your identity. For example: [ diff] which appears as diff. You should add this diff on the same line as your vote, at Commons:Picture of the Year/2006/Voting phase 1. Thank you! If you have any questions, you can ask at Commons talk:Picture of the Year/2006.

You have not provided a proper diff, I'm afraid. Please ask if you need help. --MichaelMaggs 07:22, 3 February 2007 (UTC)

Condoleezza Rice musical abilities[edit]

This comment was left on my talk page: Hello Getaway. OK, no trivia section in the article about Condoleezza Rice. However, the problem with that paragraph about her ability to play piano is that, in my opinion, that is out of place in the early life section. It refers to facts that break the time continuity of the section. What about opening a new section for this paragraph? For a comparison, Tony Blair's article has a number of miscellaneous sections about facts that are not directly related to his political career. Thanks. Miguel Andrade 05:14, 4 February 2007 (UTC)

Miguel Andrade: Thanks for the comment. I would agree with your comment about her earlier life, but there is two ties to that era in his life: (1) her name is a derivative from music and obviously she was named at birth with a musical name and (2) there was period in her early life when she wanted to be a concert pianist. Also, I would agree that her talent with the piano is tied to her career in that she meets with hundreds of diplomats every year and she plays the piano for many of them. For example, later in the article, there is reference to her playing the piano for the Governor General of Canada. So, if you feel the need to move the information, then how about the section where there is a discussion of her concert with Yo Yo Ma or her private concert for the Governor General.--Getaway 17:25, 4 February 2007 (UTC)

POTY 2006[edit]

Your vote was not considered because you don't have 100 edits in Commons and didn't provide a valid "diff" link to your home page. Please try again until 2400 14 Feb. Alvesgaspar 14:53, 14 February 2007 (UTC)

Afinal está tudo bem, acabei de validar o seu voto. Não tinha visto a sua resposta acima. Alvesgaspar 15:10, 14 February 2007 (UTC)

AIV report on new editors[edit]

Regarding the two editors listed here, we don't generally block newbies for trying to remove speedy tags from their initial (and often bad) articles. If they repeatedly recreate the article in question or edit-war over the tag, that's a different story, but usually the way to handle it is to just slow-revert (come back tomorrow and find it on your watchlist to re-add the tag). If someone is repeatedly recreating an article, admins will eventually notice and salt it. Hope that clarifies things.--Chaser - T 05:43, 16 July 2007 (UTC)

Understood. I see they put the bibliographic info in their users pages. I should have suggested them to do that. Thanks.Miguel Andrade 12:09, 17 July 2007 (UTC)

External links to GoPubMed[edit]

An unregistered user added during March 2008 a number of links from entries with biomedical topics to a query in a particular search engine [2]. Some of these links had been removed already (which indicates that I am not alone) and I removed the remaining ones. In my opinion, links to external search engines should not be used (I am not aware if this is discussed in some of the wikipedia manual of style pages). The issue is that any user can just type the word(s) in the search engine (and therefore, the link in wikipedia is not informative). Miguel Andrade (talk) 18:49, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

There is such page: Wikipedia:EL. I found about it here Miguel Andrade (talk) 18:54, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

GA reassessment of Multiple sequence alignment[edit]

I have conducted a reassessment of the above article as part of the GA Sweeps process. You are being notified as you have made a number of contributions to the article. I have found some concerns which you can see at Talk:Multiple sequence alignment/GA1. I have placed the article on hold whilst these are fixed. Thanks.

Disambiguation link notification for September 25[edit]

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