Disambiguation link notification for June 12[edit]

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

It's not clear whether the original source refers to Anbar province or the town of Anbar, so I'm not in a position to disambiguate. Mikalra (talk) 02:56, 13 June 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Adam Lowry (entrepreneur)[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

Hello. A tag has been placed on Adam Lowry (entrepreneur) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not credibly indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

July 2017[edit]

Information icon Thank you for your contributions. Please mark your edits as "minor" only if they are minor edits. In accordance with Help:Minor edit, a minor edit is one that the editor believes requires no review and could never be the subject of a dispute. Minor edits consist of things such as typographical corrections, formatting changes or rearrangement of text without modification of content. Additionally, the reversion of clear-cut vandalism and test edits may be labeled "minor". Thank you. Alexbrn (talk) 20:37, 25 July 2017 (UTC)

Spy Hunter/Peter Gunn[edit]

Can you please provide the name of the arranger and/or performer? This would certainly make the entry more notable since this information is provided for all other entries in the "Other versions" section.

All of the other versions listed can be heard on YouTube or by downloading an mp3 but it appears that one must own the video game to actually hear this so-called other version!

Why not just put video games in the "In popular culture" section and leave it at that?

JaneOlds (talk) 23:10, 6 October 2017 (UTC)

Hi: I'm afraid I don't know the the name of the arranger and/or performer: much video game work was uncredited in the early days. It's also listed as 'unknown' on the Video Game Music Preservation Foundation wiki page. This version can also be heard on YouTube — e.g. Spy Hunter (Arcade) Music. I don't strongly object to it being in the pop culture section instead, but I also don't see any positive reason for such a move, and if you look on the Talk page, there's already long-standing agreement amongst editors that it's appropriate here. If we're going to discuss this further, I'd suggest we carry it out there.Mikalra (talk) 23:30, 6 October 2017 (UTC)

Manus Regional Processing Centre[edit]

Hi Mikalra,
I question your edit of 19:52, 11 August 2016 here. It makes it sound like there are many "Australian immigration detention facilities, located on Los Negros Island".
I believe that the Manus Regional Processing Centre is the only one, on that Island?
Regards, 220 of Borg 03:01, 21 October 2017 (UTC)

Yes, I see your point: that was a syntactical SNAFU. I had meant to indicate that it was one of many such centers, not that it was one of many such centers located on that specific island. Fixed.
Mikalra (talk) 03:23, 21 October 2017 (UTC)
Though it was a "snafu", but I had 'fixed' it here (some IP editor added the "only 2" crap after your edit, here).
Doesn't madda! Confused-tpvgames.png 220 of Borg 03:49, 21 October 2017 (UTC)
Agreed, you had fixed the error you are pointing out here. My new edit restores the point that it's one of many such centers while avoiding the original problematic phrasing and without making any given sentence too convoluted.

Resveratrol[edit]

Concerning this edit, there is no point in discussing such preliminary lab research in the article. The previous sentence about no effect in humans is all that's needed. Such statements need the support of WP:MEDRS sources. You may wish to review this MEDRS tutorial. --Zefr (talk) 19:45, 10 December 2017 (UTC)

Please reconsider. I would agree with you about preliminary lab research, except that the widespread public interest in the public and sales of the dietary supplement are based exactly on that 2006 report: the lack of replication in normal animals is in this case surely important. The lack of evidence on human lifespan can rightly be said to be argumentum ex silentio. And these are proper scientific secondary sources. Mikalra (talk) 20:06, 10 December 2017 (UTC)
I know this literature and consumer interest, and understand your point. There are many similar examples on WP of misinformation wrongly guiding consumer commitment. In all cases that I monitor, the article states the absence of human evidence as adequate. Might be worth your while posting a request for opinion at WT:MED. --Zefr (talk) 20:18, 10 December 2017 (UTC)
Done]; your participation welcome.Mikalra (talk) 22:42, 10 December 2017 (UTC)
