Have removed your changes to the article on antibiotic resistance. Not sure what was with the strange numbering of sections. Also introduced a number of other errors. We typically keep section headings sort and they do not contain links per WP:MOS. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) (if I write on your page reply on mine) 03:07, 19 March 2013 (UTC)

Hi James, do you have concerns with the content changes, or is it just the number in the section titles which is problematic? John Vandenberg (chat) 23:47, 19 March 2013 (UTC)

Tox project[edit]

Hi Wuerzele, and happy seventh day of Christmas!

I've tried to get back to The Toxicology Problem™, and I have a bit of a case study in hand: Benzaldehyde. I wonder whether you and User:Harej (and anyone else who knows more than I do about toxicology) would mind trying to improve the tox information/tox-related sourcing in that article? I think it's going to be a useful example, because it's common (sold in the grocery store + used for making plastics), occurs naturally and is made synthetically, isn't obviously poisonous, and isn't very heavily researched (unlike, say, a pharmaceutical drug or a pesticide). Generally, if I have two or three clear examples of what good editors really want, I'm pretty good at translating them into descriptions for guidelines, and this one looks like a way to address multiple issues.

WP:NODEADLINE, but please ping me if you can work on this, or if you want to talk about what/why you like or dislike something in that article. To get a good guideline, it'll be helpful for me to know what you would use for sources in that article and why those are the best ones for that article.

2016 year of the reader and peace[edit]

peace bell

Thank you for good article work last year, and the Nightinggale award which helped me through 2015. 2016 had a good start, with a Bach cantata (a day late) and an opera reflecting that we should take nothing to seriuz, - Verdi's wisdom, shown on New Year's Day, also as a tribute to Viva-Verdi. (Click on "bell" for more.) Miss Yunshui (among others) and his harmonious editing. We can only try to follow the models of those who left. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 17:27, 2 January 2016 (UTC)

Your repeated question[edit]

I included only SageRad because he asked the question. It did not even occur to me to add the wider list of participants, it was a narrow and specific question asked by one person who was informed that he may be in trouble if he pursued the question himself. That was the answer the first time you asked, and it remains the answer. Guy (Help!) 10:36, 5 January 2016 (UTC)

Motion that pertains to you[edit]

Hi, this is a message to inform you that a motion pertaining to you has been proposed at Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Clarification and Amendment. For the Arbitration Committee, Kharkiv07 (T) 02:39, 6 January 2016 (UTC)

Thank you Kharkiv07 for what I assume is a courtesy notice. not being familiar with these proceedings, plse correct me if I am mistaken. --Wuerzele (talk) 03:44, 6 January 2016 (UTC)

US coal[edit]

Thanks for your work on the US coal mining article, despite our disagreement here. I am puzzled as to why you consider my edit summaries "misleading." The first was labeled "provide intro," and it indeed provided a much-needed introduction to the section topic. My second was labeled "single bids," and indeed it dealt with the problem of coal leases receiving only single bids. These descriptions are much more specific and accurate than your favorite generic "expanding article" tag, so I suspect that my edit summaries are not the real reason that you reversed my additions.

So let's improve the article. First, the section is poorly named. It does not deal with the very broad topic of "Regulation," but specifically with the administration of coal leasing on federal lands. If you don't like my title, then what title would you consider more accurate? Second, the section as written jumps into the middle of the topic without an introduction. Again, if you don't like my introductory paragraph, then suggest your own, but good writing demands some sort of overall introduction of the federal leasing program before getting into the controversies. The article should have a detailed description of the controversies, and I did not delete any of the criticisms of the program. I don't know what your intent is, but as it stands, this section is completely one-sided, and therefore unacceptably POV. The GAO report that you cited really has some excellent discussions on the problems of varying payments between states, single-bid lease sales, and market valuations. The GAO report certainly includes the criticisms cited in the section, but it also includes some explanations and discussions of the problems, and so is much more balanced and informative. This Wikipedia section, to be balanced and informative like the GAO report, should include some of the explanations and discussions from the GAO report, not just the criticisms. I hope that we can come to some consensus. Regards Plazak (talk) 05:27, 17 January 2016 (UTC)

Aliso Canyon gas leak[edit]

Thanks for your good work on the Aliso Canyon gas leak. The article had been considered as a newsworthy item on January 4, but this was rejected. The leak remains an ongoing problem, but is rarely in the national news. Yet it is clear that the problem has not been solved and might even get more complicated. (Sorry, I don't know how to ping). Regards Ekem (talk) 01:10, 18 January 2016 (UTC)

you're welcome, but i have to thank you Ekem (←mentioning a username is a ping, 3 ways to do it, all lead to notification) for starting the article. It's not good that the article was rejected for WP:in the news, so similar to the environmental underreporting in the mainstream news. I read the 9 (!) opposing comments in the link you sent and none of them hold water IMO.
  • Sca: hasn't been reported much in national U.S. media. More than one source necessary. (false, numerous national sources existed even then, this weekend covered in TIME)
  • MASEM: only 500 households. (false)
  • Baseball Bugs: it's not really a big deal (no argument)
  • 331dot: if something goes wrong with the sealing of the leak(i.e. an explosion) it might be more notable. (ie only bleeds lead?)
  • The Rambling Man: nothing really has [been] done since the leak started in October 2015. (false also documents ignorance about the topic)
  • GRAPPLE X: stale unless something significant occurs. (not defining what significant is for him)
  • Medeis: stale , past event (false and documents ignorance about the topic)
  • WaltCip: missing proof that this constitutes a "global warming-related event" (since when do news need to pass that threshold??)
  • Dragons flight: increasing the US's methane inventory by about 2%, globally only a rounding error. stale. (setting bar unreasonably high and false; staleness means documents ignorance about the topic).
the only 3 supporters Brian Everlasting, Blythwood and Andrew Davidson were outnumbered. Many of the opponents are frequent fliers on the site and are on record for making their pretty onesided opinionated and poorly informed WP:points. It should be submitted again; it deserves a wider audience even without blood and explosion. it's a precedent-setting event, because the gas pipeline infrastructure is old all over the US.--Wuerzele (talk) 02:27, 18 January 2016 (UTC)
I agree with you, but do not like to be tied down fighting windmills.Ekem (talk) 02:50, 18 January 2016 (UTC)
me neither. thanks Ekem, I could see your response coming...:-).--Wuerzele (talk) 02:59, 18 January 2016 (UTC)
It's a nice article and getting better, thanks to you both. Carry on. The big Wikipedia bureaucracies (DYK, in the news, FA, GA, etc.) can be unfriendly places. This leak is a big deal indeed, and I say that not just because I happen to live nearby. We haven't had a blowout like this since 1998 (Bellevue blowout at the Lost Hills Oil Field -- same size, but that one was on fire.) Antandrus (talk) 02:54, 18 January 2016 (UTC)
thank you. I am sorry to hear you live nearby! Not good. Any photos at all you could take/ upload ?--Wuerzele (talk) 03:01, 18 January 2016 (UTC)
I've been studying Google Earth to see if there is a vantage point with public access, but alas, no. I have a friend with a Cessna but there's a FAA restriction about flying over. Still, ... we'll see. The leak site at Standard Sesnon 25 is right in the middle of the field, surrounded by hills, all of which are within the security fence. Antandrus (talk) 03:09, 18 January 2016 (UTC)
Oh, I wasn't thinking aerial pics. maybe there are really simple community level opportunities? i for one haven't seen the security fence. have you seen any new fences, new signs on bus stops, roadblocks, whatever ?
btw I am pleased to meet a US citizen and admin interested in Medieval, Renaissance, and early Baroque composers, totally down my alley (i'd even stop at early baroque, but the line is hard to draw)! it must be my lucky day !--Wuerzele (talk) 03:21, 18 January 2016 (UTC)
Excellent, very fine to make your acquaintance! Yes I've been editing here since forever it seems. By the way I just made a map of the Aliso Canyon field for an article I'm writing on the field itself, and its long history. (Map needs some tweaks yet, e.g. kilometer scale, another label or two.) When I get a chance I'll see what photographs I can get. Antandrus (talk) 03:24, 18 January 2016 (UTC)

I've read a few of the articles on your list and particularly liked the medical ones – medicine's a field I'm interested in but ignorant about. Jamestown Canyon virus sounds as if it could be a future problem. Today's papers are pointing out that climate change will radically affect the geographical incidence of diseases. Another interest is US local government (I'm an ignorant distant admirer), so Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality went down well. I use Wikipedia constantly in my translation work, especially for the social sciences, looking up concepts and phrases in Hungarian and seeing if I can match them on the English site, which is safer than just using a dictionary, I guess. I haven't noticed any disastrous disinformation yet. My own work on Wikipedia is mainly to do with villages in Nottinghamshire (the history of minute Elton on the Hill turned out to be remarkably interesting, to me at least) and with female writers of old who deserve a page – I agree with those who point to a gender bias in the subject-matter, i. e. you need on average to be a better writer to get on Wikipedia if you are female. So I began with Sarah Burney, early 19th c., and haven't looked back. I also correct or expand small items of information on Hungary, Austria, Japan and other countries I know a little about, and try to make random pages I run into read more smoothly if I can. Anyway, keep up the good work! Cordially, Brian Bmcln1 (talk) 19:22, 29 January 2016 (UTC)

Thank you again, Brian, and for elaborating. I contribute more than I start articles, so it's a skewed list. I lived in Merseyside "long ago" and love the North of the UK, nevertheless am ignorant about Nottinghamshire i am afraid. yes local history is fascinating. i recently added to Entrambasaguas and realized the same thing... --Wuerzele (talk) 20:30, 29 January 2016 (UTC)

Serious BLP violation[edit]

Reading your user page, it sounds like you shouldn't have language problems. In that case, I don't see how you can justify this edit [1] in which you effectively changed the wording which accurately reflected the source into a wording which is quite different from what the source says and in which you claimed someone who is very likely still alive [2], committed misconduct in wikivoice. If that was an accidental wording error, please ensure you take far more care in the future. If it wasn't, I strongly suggest you refrain from editing BLPs.

you are not achieving the same: you make your post on talk:Zika virus look like a generic concern to everyone else, when infact you are tapping (only) my shoulder (which is pinging) semiprivately here. and only you know, why you do this, since you didnt answer this. My point wasnt the pinging, but using user names is. this is teh second time taht I have told you this. if you have someone someone in mind to address a content related issue, mention their name on the content talk page for all to see. avoid any guessing or game playing what your intent is. for hopefully the last time: User:Doc James why did you NOT address me on the content page, since you obviously posted this only to me and not all the other folks that participated in the edit in question? --Wuerzele (talk) 16:17, 15 April 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for putting that stuff in the city article.

youre welcome, Daniel. do you know that there are 200 pfos contamin. sites by the military alone? the military alone, yes! who knows how many other sites exist, where fire alarm exercises were done with fire extinguishers (as at our hospital until recently), plus the production sites, etc; its a big issue evolving for a decade in slow motion to me. i'm in a solitary editing spree to enter the sites, since the new epa standard came out 19 may, see my editing history today ...though almost falling asleep.
i am thinking of creating a new category for this - if the panama paper people can have one, so can the pfos sites. anyway encouragement goes a long way, esp as wp people are so hesitant to thank or give out barn stars nowadays. haha. --Wuerzele (talk) 21:55, 25 May 2016 (UTC)

you gotta be kidding. We, SageRad etc, are allowed to edit company websites like Monsanto legal cases.
No, I consider this retaliatory, because I exposed your relentlessly controlling, pro-industry and negative editing behavior. there is indeed good coverage and you know it you could have improved the edit by finding a better source, but as always you suppress any critical points of view. --Wuerzele (talk) 13:55, 22 June 2016 (UTC)
This will be my last reply here, but being able to edit on company pages does not give you free range to edit on topics related to your ban (which the climatecorp offshoot is directly linked to) or make pointy edit summaries towards editors that got you banned in the first place. You're just continuing your battleground behavior, which is ultimately why your behavior is being discussed at AE. Aspersions like above will only make things worse.

I'm so fucking tired of the bullshit of the McCarthyist enforcers of messed up systemic bias in Wikipedia. The lawyering, the dishonesty, the lack of integrity, the silencing of others, you people ought to be totally ashamed of yourselves. Like was said to McCarthy, "You sir, at long last, have done enough." Get off this lad. Let people be. Go away. Let people edit in good faith. Bugger off. I speak to the industry aligned forces of darkness who have come to control Wikipedia, and i mean this whole heartedly. You're bad. You're a bad influence on Wikipedia, and you are despicable in your lack of integrity. You know who you are, and you know what you're up to. It's so far from NPOV that it would be laughable if only you weren't "winning" by fiat by populating the editorship with a virulent plurality. You make me sick. "Aspersions like above will only make things worse." Fuck that shit. Attitudes like those are what makes this place go to hell. Speaking the truth about this infection is needed. SageRad (talk) 12:59, 17 July 2016 (UTC)

This is the sort of mud slinging McCarthyism i see here. I see that speaking of an editor's pattern of editing is made to be a "crime" when it goes in one direction, and the "law of the land" when it goes in the other direction. That is the attitude of Kings, and the opposite of the principles of democracy or integrity. It's the silencing sort of atmosphere caused by McCarthyism in all its manifestations. It's ruined Wikipedia where it comes to any topic that has any controversy or uncertainty where there happens to also be a vested interest by some group. It's lawyering in an agenda pushy way, and i will state that, and stating that is not a crime. Let's be adults here, people, or go home. This is the world's knowledge base we're talking about. It's not a football. It's not a game. SageRad (talk) 13:21, 17 July 2016 (UTC)

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. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator. Cotton2 (talk) 16:18, 24 July 2016 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for July 25[edit]

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

Copying within Wikipedia and proper attribution[edit]

Information icon Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you copied or moved text from Schistosoma haematobium into Schistosoma bovis. While you are welcome to re-use Wikipedia's content, here or elsewhere, Wikipedia's licensing does require that you provide attribution to the original contributor(s). When copying within Wikipedia, this is supplied at minimum in an edit summary at the page into which you've copied content. It is good practice, especially if copying is extensive, to also place a properly formatted {{copied}} template on the talk pages of the source and destination. The attribution has been provided for this situation, but if you have copied material between pages before, even if it was a long time ago, please provide attribution for that duplication. You can read more about the procedure and the reasons at Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia. Thank you. If you are the sole author of the prose that was moved, attribution is not required. — Diannaa (talk) 22:08, 26 July 2016 (UTC)

Yes, Diannaa, I moved text that was inappropriately written on the wrong page. thanks for the info on attribution which i was unaware of I ve never done this before i guess- I assume there is no {{move}} template for the talk pages then?--Wuerzele (talk) 02:37, 29 July 2016 (UTC)
I normally use the talk page template {{copied}} when there's been large chunks moved. It's optional. It's more important that you mention where the content came from in your edit summary, as this is how the attribution needs to be noted. — Diannaa (talk) 02:42, 29 July 2016 (UTC)
Diannaa check my most recent move out here- this okay?--Wuerzele (talk) 20:08, 1 August 2016 (UTC)
Yeah, that's perfect. — Diannaa (talk) 22:10, 1 August 2016 (UTC)

DYK for Klein's line[edit]

Updated DYK query.svg On 30 July 2016, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Klein's line, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that Klein's line, the first tool to diagnose slipping of the ball-joint-like end of the femur in adolescents early to prevent destruction of the hip joint, is still used today? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Klein's line. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Klein's line), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

Wuerzele, you were pinged a couple of days after this from the nomination page, but haven't responded. Since pings don't always go through, I'm posting so you're aware that a response from you is needed for this nomination to continue. Please do so as soon as possible. Many thanks.

Hi Wuerzele[edit]

Hi, nice to meet you. I returned my edit, this time I put the references in the page (not just in the talk page), I assume (?) that was the thing you found problematic (?).

I must say I don't think your attitude in reverting is a good one. Reverting is a comparatively hostile method, that emphasizes dishonor and/or distrust. It is not meant for edits which may not perfect in all aspects. When I see an edit without any source, I usually try to run a quick google search to see if the information is true, only if it is not found easily I delete. Also, in my case I explicitly mentioned that this information was as easy as googling it to found, so you could've spared 10 seconds and google it. Also, when I gave the sources in the talk page, you ignored the talk page and the sources brought there and deleted it again. If the information is valid, but the source wasn't brought in the right manner to your opinion, it would be a lot more polite to just write on the user's talk page asking him or her to do it properly, while explaining briefly what is it that needs to be fixed. Since the information itself is valid, there is absolutely no reason to "rush" and delete it.

(I must also mention that this kind of behaviour is greatly influencing the chance of users, especially new ones, to continue to contribute. If I didn't have enough experience in wikipedia (from another wiki), such behaviour of deleting an edit which added information that can be validated so easily, would definitely make me want to leave this place. I know it might be rude of me, but I would recommend reading Wikipedia:Revert only when necessary and Wikipedia:Please do not bite the newcomers. Of course, you will decide your agenda on your own, but when I read those I found them as a good thinking material, maybe you will too :) )

Yours, Orielno (talk) 07:36, 20 October 2016 (UTC)

By the way, I edited now with the sources "inline", then reverted it again. If you find it sufficient, then revert my last revert to what I did. If you still find it lacking, then the article will just remain not-updated, cause I have no intention to continue to spend time on such a small thing, so do as you find fit.
