Welcome!

Hello, Ventus55, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions.

I notice that one of the first articles you edited appears to be dealing with a topic with which you may have a conflict of interest. In other words, you may find it difficult to write about that topic in a neutral and objective way, because you are, work for, or represent, the subject of that article. Your recent contributions may have already been undone for this very reason.

To reduce the chances of your contributions being undone, you might like to draft your revised article before submission, and then ask me or any other editor to proofread it. See our help page on userspace drafts for more details. If the page you created has already been deleted from Wikipedia, but you want to save the content from it to use for that draft, don't hesitate to ask anyone from this list and they will copy it to your user page.

One firm rule we do have in connection with conflicts of interest is that accounts used by more than one person will unfortunately be blocked from editing. Wikipedia generally does not allow editors to have usernames which imply that the account belongs to a company or corporation. If you have a username like this, you should request a change of username or create a new account. (A name that identifies the user as an individual within a given organization may be OK.)

Here are some pages that you might find helpful:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Please sign your messages on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically insert your username and the date. If you need help, check out Wikipedia:Questions, ask me on my talk page, or ask your question on this page and then place {{help me}} before the question. Again, welcome! bobrayner (talk) 01:35, 4 June 2013 (UTC)

Justus Wesseler[edit]

I was wondering why you were adding Wesseler as a reference to multiple articles without introducing any new information. It is not a good idea to add a reference without a reason. AIRcorn (talk) 10:47, 17 June 2013 (UTC) The reason is that Wesseler contributed significantly to the subjects to which I referenced his works. Ventus55 (talk) 11:49, 17 June 2013 (UTC)

(talk page stalker)I think you misunderstand the purpose of references. The purpose of a reference is to back up what has already been said. Once that is done, there is no need to add another reference. That's not to say that if the existing reference does not meet the criteria listed in Wikipedia:Reliable sources it shouldn't be replaced with one that does, nor is it to say that previously-unreferenced text shouldn't have a reliable-source reference that actually backs up the text added to it. However, if you have a conflict of interest, as outlined in Wikipedia:Conflict of interest, you should not add references if doing so would be "editing with a conflict of interest." davidwr/(talk)/(contribs)/(e-mail) 00:07, 18 June 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for July 23[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that you've added some links pointing to disambiguation pages.

A page you started (Biocrates Life Sciences AG) has been reviewed![edit]

Thanks for creating Biocrates Life Sciences AG, Ventus55!

Wikipedia editor The Herald just reviewed your page, and wrote this note for you:

Good but need some inline cites in the lead section..

To reply, leave a comment on The Herald's talk page.

Learn more about page curation.

Actually, the page is significantly promotional. I've tagged it as such, and intend to make some cuts, which may amount to most of the article. When we describe a company in a particular field, we do not include general information about the field, or explain why the field is important--we just link to the article. Doing anything more is appropriate or a press release, not an encyclopedia article. We never use words like "renowned" or leading" or similar puffery. We can not say "first" anything without a third party reliable source that makes the claim.
There are indeed a great many WP articles that are similarly promotional, or worse. They were accepted in earlier years when the standards were lower. We need to either upgrade or remove them. The least we can do is not add to their number.
please keep this in mind for writing your articles on scientists also.
I notice that many of the articles are translated from the German, apparently the German WP. That is of course a very good idea, but the source must be specified--it is not enough to make the interwiki link. The way we do it is specified at Wikipedia:Translation You should also be aware of some differences in style. In particular, we do not link or list all of a person's scientific articles, We includes only the few most cited, and support this with citation data , preferably from Web of Science, though Google Scholar will do .

I do some short translations myself, but I have only a ordinary scientist's knowledge of German--if I need help, I'll remember to ask you DGG ( talk ) 15:51, 8 May 2015 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for your assistance. I tried to neutralize the article and deleted some attributes like "significant", "leading" "first". I hope this'll help. Ventus55 (talk) 09:59, 20 May 2015 (UTC)

Welcome to Wikipedia from the Anatomy Wikiproject![edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia from WikiProject Anatomy! We're a group of editors who strive to improve the quality of anatomy articles here on Wikipedia. One of our members has noticed that you are involved in editing anatomy articles; it's great to have a new interested editor on board. In your wiki-voyages, a few things that may be relevant to editing wikipedia articles are:

Sobo 1909 589.png
  • Thanks for coming aboard! We always appreciate a new editor. Feel free to leave us a message at any time on the WikiProject Anatomy talk page. If you are interested in joining the project yourself, there is a participant list where you can sign up. Please leave a message on the talk page if you have any problems, suggestions, would like review of an article, need suggestions for articles to edit, or would like some collaboration when editing!
  • You will make a big difference to the quality of information by adding reliable sources. Sourcing anatomy articles is essential and makes a big difference to the quality of articles. And, while you're at it, why not use a book to source information, which can source multiple articles at once!
  • We try and use a standard way of arranging the content in each article. That layout is here. These headings let us have a standard way of presenting the information in anatomical articles, indicate what information may have been forgotten, and save angst when trying to decide how to organise an article. That said, this might not suit every article. If in doubt, be bold!
  • We write for a general audience. Every reader should be able to understand anatomical articles, so when possible please write in a simple form—most readers do not understand anatomical jargon. See this essay for more details.

Feel free to contact us on the WikiProject Anatomy talk page if you have any problems, or wish to join us. I wish you all the best on your wiki-voyages!

Ways to improve Alexander Berghaus[edit]

Hi, I'm ONUnicorn. Ventus55, thanks for creating Alexander Berghaus!

I've just tagged the page, using our page curation tools, as having some issues to fix. No indication that this meets WP:GNG. Citations are to his own papers, and support statements about his work and research. The biographical section is totally unreferenced.

The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, you can leave a comment on my talk page. Or, for more editing help, talk to the volunteers at the Teahouse. ~ ONUnicorn(Talk|Contribs)problem solving 21:36, 2 November 2015 (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.

Conflict of interest in WIkipedia[edit]

Hi Ventus55. I work on conflict of issues in WIkipedia, along with my regular editing about health and medicine.

Thanks for disclosing User:Ventus55#Notice that you are compensated for some of your editing. Under the WP:PAID policy, which simply reflects the Terms of Use, you are obligated to disclose the specific articles for which you have received compensation. Typically we ask people to list them on their User page and disclose that on the Talk page of the relevant article as well.

If you would list the relevant articles on your Userpage, I will do the work of tagging the Talk pages.

Additionally, there is a second step to managing conflicts of interest here on en-wiki, after disclosure -- namely, peer review. Once you disclose on your Userpage, I can walk you through the peer review step.

I'm providing you with notice of our COI guideline and PAID policy, just so you have this.

Information icon Hello, Ventus55. We welcome your contributions, but if you have an external relationship with the people, places, or things you have written about on Wikipedia, you may have a conflict of interest (COI). Editors with a COI may be unduly influenced by their connection to the topic, and it is important when editing Wikipedia articles that such connections be completely transparent. See the conflict of interest guideline and FAQ for organizations for more information. In particular, we ask that you please:

  • avoid editing or creating articles related to you and your family, friends, school, company, club, or organization, as well as any competing companies' projects or products;
  • instead, you are encouraged to propose changes on the Talk pages of affected article(s) for peer review (see the {{request edit}} template);
  • if you want to create an article about a topic for which you have a COI, please submit a draft for peer review using the articles for creation process, with a disclosure of your COI on the Talk page;
  • when discussing affected articles, disclose your COI (see WP:DISCLOSE);
  • avoid linking to the Wikipedia article or to the website of your organization in other articles (see WP:SPAM);
  • exercise great caution so that you do not violate Wikipedia's content policies.

In addition, you must disclose your employer, client, and affiliation with respect to any contribution for which you receive, or expect to receive, compensation (see WP:PAID).

Please take a few moments to read and review Wikipedia's policies regarding conflicts of interest, especially those pertaining to neutral point of view, sourcing and autobiographies. Thank you.

Further discussion[edit]

But please do reply here after you've posted the list on your Userpage, and then I'll reply to you with a quick description of the peer review process. Best regards Jytdog (talk) 13:49, 18 June 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for your help. Plesae see marks "compensated" for the relevant articles on my user page. There is no COI.Ventus55 (talk) 15:51, 18 June 2016 (UTC)
Thanks! I don't understand what you mean by "there is no COI" - would you please explain? Also would you please explain what was going on here: User:Kipepea/PICSO_Impulse_System which ended up as Pressure-controlled intermittent coronary sinus occlusion (PICSO)? That looks like a lot like a paid article. Also, this does too: Biocrates Life Sciences AG..... Sorry to bother you, just trying to sort things out. Thanks. Jytdog (talk) 16:35, 18 June 2016 (UTC)
With "no COI" I'm saying "I do not have any personal relationship with the peoples I'm writing about", when I was exceptionally compensated. I understand that a COI can be seen by Wikipedia, but I'm saying on my user page: "articles are not biased or overweighted in what these people performed in their discipline or life". I'm not involved in "PICSO" and there is no compensation for "Biocrates". Ventus55 (talk) 16:51, 18 June 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for replying. Sorry for not being more clear - is Kipepea an alternative account for you?
Also, getting compensated = COI in Wikipedia. It is great that you strive to be neutral even when you have a COI: it doesn't change the fact that there is a COI. This is not ambiguous.
In the future, for editing where you are compensated or expect to be compensated, please don't edit directly, but rather propose changes on the Talk page and if it is a new article, please put it through WP:AFC, in both cases with a disclosure. OK? Jytdog (talk) 16:59, 18 June 2016 (UTC)
I understand. Thanks for helping me.Ventus55 (talk) 17:09, 18 June 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for being understanding, and for disclosing so readily. Best regards Jytdog (talk) 18:41, 18 June 2016 (UTC)
Sorry to circle back but were you paid by the three individuals or by some other entity? These details are required by the ToU and the paid contributor tag. Thanks. Jytdog (talk) 18:46, 18 June 2016 (UTC)
By the individuals.Ventus55 (talk) 19:43, 18 June 2016 (UTC)
great thanks. Jytdog (talk) 21:05, 18 June 2016 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Kai von Klitzing[edit]

A tag has been placed on Kai von Klitzing requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section R2 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a redirect from the article namespace to a different namespace except the Category, Template, Wikipedia, Help, or Portal namespaces.

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. Stefan2 (talk) 17:36, 1 July 2016 (UTC)

User:User:Ventus55/Kai von Klitzing[edit]
