Can someone direct me to Wikipedia information related to: 1)- Cerebellomesencephalic fissure and, 2)- the Vein of cerebellomesencephalic (mesencephalic) fissure (Precentral (cerebellar) Vein? Otr500 (talk) 16:55, 4 September 2018 (UTC)

@Otr500 doesn't look like we have those articles! 😯 --Tom (LT) (talk) 07:37, 5 September 2018 (UTC)
Thank you, I couldn't find them and was making sure there wasn't a synonym or "Wikipedia" name I was missing. Otr500 (talk) 01:11, 6 September 2018 (UTC)
FWIW, it makes me idly wonder if de.WP (German Wikipedia) or has or lacks those terms, too. Too tired to check myself! Geekdiva (talk) 20:07, 5 October 2018 (UTC)

Did you know about this category?[edit]

Category_talk:Pages_with_unresolved_properties#Almost_all_anatomy_articles!?! You probably do. Just in case. Thanks for all the hard body work! Ps. Chyle is a little over-weighted to the pathology side of things and could use more functionality with compare & contrast details BTW, as long as I'm saying hi. Hi! Bye! Geekdiva (talk) 20:03, 5 October 2018 (UTC)

Thanks Geekdiva! What does this mean?? I've worked very hard to clear out Category:Anatomy infobox template using unsupported parameters, so I'm disappointed to learn about this other category. If you can help point out what problem causes this I'll endeavour to fix it. --Tom (LT) (talk) 01:26, 6 October 2018 (UTC)
The only related documentation I can find is the entry at Special:TrackingCategories for Category:Pages with unresolved properties which says:
This category lists pages that reference Wikidata properties that cannot be found neither by their property ID nor label.
Apparently an editor would have to guess which property is being requested but which does not exist. The problem comes from the infobox. For example, replacing all of Abdominal aorta with {{Infobox artery|Name=Example}} then previewing the result shows the hidden category is generated by the template, presumably via {{Infobox anatomy}}. (The hidden category can be seen in the "page information" link under "Hidden categories", or at the bottom of the page if the preference to show hidden categories is enabled.)

Muscles and bones[edit]


The pages crural ligaments soleus and glueteus maximus do not exist. I post this notice in case somebody in your WikiProject would like to redirect or create the pages.

Gluteus maximus exists.--Iztwoz (talk) 06:15, 8 October 2018 (UTC)

I feel some additional justification is used for some of these terms. As Iztwoz points out most terms are already here. Are all these terms notable enough? A google search for the typo "Acetabelum" reveals only 2,240 hits. @Iceblock are these terms all verbatim or are some spelling mistakes? Many are certainly not anatomical entities. --Tom (LT) (talk) 06:33, 8 October 2018 (UTC)
Glueteus maximus is my mistake. The rest is written as in the source, but intermaxillary bone is probably the editor's intent instead of intermaxillary (shorthand form used in dictionaries, when it is followed by, in this case, incisive bone). I use bold to emphasise the words; the source does not use bold. Iceblock (talk) 18:10, 9 October 2018 (UTC)

Males having nipples, and the lead sentence definition at the Nipple article[edit]

Opinions are needed at Talk:Nipple#Men have nipples. A permalink for it is here. Flyer22 Reborn (talk) 01:01, 2 November 2018 (UTC)

Thanks Flyer, have commented. --Tom (LT) (talk) 00:42, 3 November 2018 (UTC)
