Invitation to Meetup/Seattle6, a focus group[edit]

Hello. I'm part of a research group at the University of Washington (Seattle campus), and my group is reaching out to Wikipedians in the Puget Sound area. We're hosting a focus group designed to gather information on what Wikipedians would like to know about each other when interacting on Wikipedia. Our end goal is to create an embedded application that helps people quickly know more about others' history and activity on Wikipedia, and we feel our design will be much more useful if it's based on insights of users like you.

I'm hoping that the chance to help out local researchers, to engage in lively face-to-face discussion with other Seattle Wikipedians, and to contribute to Wikipedia in a new way will entice you to join us. The session lasts 2 hours and snacks are provided. Sessions will be held on UW Seattle campus - directions will be sent after registration. Your contribution will be greatly appreciated!

Willing and able to help us out? RSVP here. Want to know more? Visit our user talk page . Please help us contact other local Wikipedians, too! Commprac01 (talk) 03:47, 16 March 2009 (UTC)

HFCS[edit]

I noticed your edits about glucose/fructose. Although many web sites say that glucose-fructose syrup, isoglucose, and glucose/fructose are HFCS that is not necessarily the case. While HFCS is often labeled as glucose-fructose syrup, isoglucose, and glucose/fructose non corn derived products are also labeled as such. [1] #17 [2] Invert sugar is another similar product in the UK made by enzymatic breakup of sucrose into glucose and fructose. Weetoddid (talk) 03:20, 6 November 2010 (UTC)

I was actually reverting the article to a previous version. Someone without an account made [this edit] claiming that HFCS is called “corn syrup” in the UK, but did not change the references, [3] and [4], which both refer to glucose-fructose syrup, and did not add any new references to support this usage. I am not familiar with usage outside of the US, and I don't know who made the original claim about UK usage and added the references to support it. I undid this particular edit because corn syrup definitely refers to a different food product, and because the old version was supported by two references. --MYCETEAE - talk 05:20, 6 November 2010 (UTC)
Any ideas on how to incorporate this info into the article without over-complicating it? Weetoddid (talk) 05:33, 6 November 2010 (UTC)
I'm not sure. It looks like these products are not necessarily the same thing; usage seems to be based on the regulatory idiosyncrasies of each country. Like I said, I'm not familiar with international usage, so I can't really comment on the accuracy of the current article, or recommend any specific changes. I do think that the references currently given for glucose-fructose syrup in the UK are pretty weak. They appear to at least reflect colloquial usage, but legal definitions would be better, and the sites you linked to here appear official. If these products aren't exactly the same thing, a separate section or a brief mention of these similar products in the intro might be appropriate. Another thing to consider is which terms redirect to the HFCS article. Isoglucose does redirect to high-fructose corn syrup, but it's not listed as a synonym in the intro and only appears once in the article. On the other hand, glucose/fructose is listed in bold in the article opening as the Canadian name for HFCS, but this term does not redirect to the HFCS article. I think the relevant question is, what term or terms are people likely to search for on the English Wikipedia? If you want to expand the article, I say go for it, or start a discussion on the HFCS talk page. Is there a place on Wikipedia to solicit recommendations on standard usage throughout the Anglosphere? —MYCETEAE - talk 06:24, 6 November 2010 (UTC)

Invalid ISBN[edit]

In an edit at Acid you added the reference "Pavia, D.L., Lampman, G.M., & Kriz, G.S. (2004). Organic chemistry volume 1: Organic chemistry 351. Mason, OH: Cenage Learning. ISNB: 9780759342724". [5] Unfortunately, the ISBN you gave was invalid. I was wondering whether you could help in finding the correct one. Lmatt (talk) 01:15, 18 December 2011 (UTC)

This is the ISBN that is printed on the back of my book. The textbook was specially printed for the organic chemistry course at my university, and while I believe it may have been published elsewhere, unfortunately I am not sure of that and cannot verify what might be printed in other editions. If any statements need to be removed because this reference can't be verified, I completely understand, but I believe that anything I've written can be verified in other basic chemistry texts. I wish I could be more helpful. MYCETEAE - talk 04:57, 19 December 2011 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
