September 2015[edit]

Information icon Welcome to Wikipedia. We welcome and appreciate your contributions, including your edits to Employment discrimination, but we cannot accept original research. Original research refers to material—such as facts, allegations, and ideas—for which no reliable, published sources exist; it also encompasses combining published sources in a way to imply something that none of them explicitly say. Please be prepared to cite a reliable source for all of your contributions. Thank you. McGeddon (talk) 15:54, 24 September 2015 (UTC)

Citing sources[edit]

WP:PROVEIT

Wikipedia:Tutorial/Citing sources =This is an encyclopedia, so remember that it's a necessity to include references listing websites, newspapers, articles, books and other sources you have used to write or expand articles. All additions and corrections should be based on reliable, third-party, published sources with a reputation for fact-checking and accuracy. These sources should verify the information but you must not copy and paste text you find anywhere, except for short quotations. New articles and statements added to existing articles may be deleted by others if unreferenced or referenced poorly or if they are copyright violations.

References[edit]

Remember that when adding medical content please only use high-quality reliable sources as references. We typically use review articles, major textbooks and position statements of national or international organizations. WP:MEDHOW walks you through editing step by step. A list of resources to help edit health content can be found here. The edit box has a build in citation tool to easily format references based on the PMID or ISBN.

WOW! OK> Can you give me a few days to find such? There is a huge amount of misunderstanding g of the Southern racial culture because the publishers (as in the last fe w years) refuse to publish the fact that anything at all good went on between the races.

Disambiguation link notification for March 15[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited List of ethnic, regional, and folk dances by origin, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Charleston. 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.

reverts[edit]

As an occassional & nonp[rofessional hobby-level editor, I'm beginning to wonder about spending time editing. I am getting some reversions of medical contributions (I have been in practice as a pathologist since the 1970s) without my be able to find an explanation or comment anywhere as to WHY.Poptop43 (talk) 17:25, 2 April 2017 (UTC)

WP:MOSMED would explain this. Even though you are an expert and we welcome the contributions of experts, they can only use the reliable sources that support what they want to add, and the standard is much higher for medical contributions. The advantage to being an expert is that you would have a better understanding of those sources.— Vchimpanzee • talk • contributions • 18:27, 13 April 2017 (UTC)

April 2017[edit]

October 2018[edit]

Information icon Thank you for your contributions. Please mark your edits, such as your recent edits to List of serial killers in the United States, 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. ☾Loriendrew☽ (ring-ring) 22:55, 15 October 2018 (UTC)
