Thanks for becoming reactive on the article. I really want to go for GA with this one. Might not get time to improve much till mid-April when my exams get over. The main problem is references. Finding out proper references is a big issue and the article is highly biased POV. There is need to make it neutral. --Debastein (talk) 07:03, 20 March 2012 (UTC)
Hi Sarindam7, I have reverted your additions to Trichoderma as the information was copy and pasted from this article making it a copyright violation. It is very important that you only add information to Wikipedia that is written in your own words. Please reply below if you're not sure why this is a problem. Thanks SmartSE (talk) 11:26, 13 October 2012 (UTC)
- This is much better - thank you!
- I also noticed that a large proportion of Aluminium phosphide poisoning was copy and pasted too so have had to remove that. SmartSE (talk) 11:36, 13 October 2012 (UTC)
Your contributed article, Instruments used in dentistry
Hello, I noticed that you recently created a new page, Instruments used in dentistry. First, thank you for your contribution; Wikipedia relies solely on the efforts of volunteers such as you. Unfortunately, the page you created covers a topic on which we already have a page – Dental instruments. Because of the duplication, your article has been tagged for speedy deletion. Please note that this is not a comment on you personally and we hope you will continue helping to improve Wikipedia. If the topic of the article you created is one that interests you, then perhaps you would like to help out at Dental instruments – you might like to discuss new information at the article's talk page.
If you think that the article you created should remain separate, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but 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 yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Additionally if you would like to have someone review articles you create before they go live so they are not nominated for deletion shortly after you post them, allow me to suggest the article creation process and using our search feature to find related information we already have in the encyclopedia. Try not to be discouraged. Wikipedia looks forward to your future contributions. Tinton5 (talk) 05:01, 15 November 2012 (UTC)
- I have redirected the article to Dental instruments, in order to preserve the article's history in case there's something worth of merging. - Mike Rosoft (talk) 10:41, 15 November 2012 (UTC)
- Thanks for the heads up. - Sarindam7 13:37, 15 November 2012 (UTC)

The Wikipedia Library now offering accounts from Cochrane Collaboration (sign up!)
The Wikipedia Library gets Wikipedia editors free access to reliable sources that are behind paywalls. Because you are signed on as a medical editor, I thought you'd want to know about our most recent donation from Cochrane Collaboration.
- Cochrane Collaboration is an independent medical nonprofit organization that conducts systematic reviews of randomized controlled trials of health-care interventions, which it then publishes in the Cochrane Library.
- Cochrane has generously agreed to give free, full-access accounts to 100 medical editors. Individual access would otherwise cost between $300 and $800 per account.
- If you are still active as a medical editor, come and sign up :)
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.

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