National Society for Epilepsy

Hi Colin,

Many thanks for your help with our page - it really looks great and is both informative and relevent. I'm sure it must have taken a great deal of time to set it up and we appreciate it.

I think we are in a much better position to make small changes as and when necessary based on this initial entry and will be following the style and layout that you have started.

Many thanks again. Kind regards, Jack —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Epilepsynse (talkcontribs) 09:29, 4 August 2006.

Dear Colin,

Why you think that external link to professional site concerning well-known similar mechanisms of epilepsy with other paroxysmal disorders is inappropriate? I am neurologist and neuroscientist, and work in this field many years.

Respectfully,

Merab Lomia, MD, PhD

I've replied here Colin°Talk 17:15, 8 August 2006 (UTC)

Merab Lomia

Colin,

Thank you for your opinion. I understand your position. The relationships between the various diseases might be interesting for medical professionals, but not for other readers. Nevertheless, information in articles with medical subject looks like for professionals.

I'll think about your advice concerning medical resources. It seems interesting. Thanks.

Sincerely,

Merab Lomia

To answer your questions:

  • why do I support something that I don't think is a good idea and "will lead to more debate than it's worth"? Because of consistency.
  • Do you just want the word "lasting" dropped from JFW's criterium? I simply want to copy the text from WP:Lists.

What do you mean by:"In addition, that criterium is significantly stronger than this guideline."? That it's more strict? That it's more important and so we should obey it?

Sorry I'm so confusing :-)

btw your user page kinda left me wondering... Are you just an Average Person with no training writing drug articles??? Are you french??? And are you opposed to Info- and Babelboxes?????

re: List of people with epilepsy

I've been reading your comments around the pages you listed on my talk page. Just wanted to let you know I'm thinking over the subject and that you can expect my contribution the discussion sometime this weekend. Regards -- Rune Welsh | ταλκ 13:47, 11 August 2006 (UTC)

Certainly good additions! But in any case you would have to re-nominate because you are running out of time and you have no support votes as of yet... One thing I would change is "Life" column width so that the dates don't break into two lines. Also I am a bit uneasy that you rely on ref 72 so much. Otherwise it looks like something I might support. Renata 01:03, 15 August 2006 (UTC)

You did an excellent job bringing the list to Featured status. Keep the valuable contributions up! -- Rune Welsh | ταλκ 15:51, 20 August 2006 (UTC)

hectares & acres

Hi, I see you corrected an area on List of Sites of Special Scientific Interest in Avon, if you are an expert on converting hectares to acres etc could you kindly take a look at List of Sites of Special Scientific Interest in Somerset where I've got measurements in hectares but don't know how to convert them to acres.— Rod talk 16:43, 18 August 2006 (UTC)

List of people with epilepsy

I'm leaving this note because my vote on your FL nomination probably comes as an unpleasant surprise. I appreciate your warm notes and comments - I really do think you're a good editor acting in good faith - and I also think your list needs to improve before it achieves feature quality. You're well on your way: keep improving. Some challenges from skeptical editors really made my other featured list Cultural depictions of Joan of Arc far better than it would have been with easy praise.

Re: List of OSU people

I looked at the examples you gave and I wouldn't be opposed to putting it in chart form, but I'm not sure what the columns could be that would fit for every person currently on the list. I also don't know how hard it would be to try and implement pictures in a list in chart form, it would look kind of akward if only a few people had pictures below their name in the chart rather than a few off to the side like it currently is. For citations it looks like it could get interesting no matter what route I choose, I'll have to spend some time fiddling with that. Thanks, VegaDark 10:48, 21 October 2006 (UTC)

I've made a start to putting the list in chart form at User:VegaDark/Sandbox. Can you think of any other columns to add? VegaDark 02:22, 22 October 2006 (UTC)
I was considering adding a birth/death column but I didn't consider it to be really related to the topic of the list, whereas in lists of people with medical conditions it is something a lot more likely someone would want the info on. I was also considering adding a degree column, but I realized that I don't have the info on that for 99% of the people on the list, so I decided against it. As for why there are so many sportspeople, I guess you could say it's because OSU has been running sports for a long time and people have a higher chance of becoming notable via that route than academically or otherwise.

TS comments

Thanks so much for the detailed and helpful comments: I knew those were weaknesses, but no one else complained :-) Addressing those issues is on my list for this morning, but I keep getting distracted by new entries about those darn images and the infobox -- will get on them today, so check back later if you're interested. Thanks again, Sandy (Talk) 15:09, 27 October 2006 (UTC)

OK, made a lot of changes, in case you want to have another look. Thanks again ! Sandy (Talk) 18:10, 27 October 2006 (UTC)
Yes, there is some confusion on the numbers :-) Yomangani mentioned the problem of consistency in style, I read the MOS on numbers (perhaps incorrectly) and made changes to (I thought) to agree, Tony changed some of them back, and now I'm confused :-) Your proposal sounds good: I'll run it by Tony and Yomangani. Thanks! Sandy (Talk) 12:22, 28 October 2006 (UTC)

Responded on my talk page: I'm also confused on internet archive policy, and would appreciate suggestions. Sandy (Talk) 16:28, 29 October 2006 (UTC)

Colin, thanks so much for everything, and for following up with Jkelly. I'm going to be traveling this week, and will have limited and sporadic internet access: I'll catch up with the remaining list of loose ends to tie up at the end of next week (images, internet archive, dates and numbers), and look at MEDMOS when I have time. Thanks again, your help has been invaluable, Sandy (Talk) 13:27, 3 November 2006 (UTC)

Colin, I just wanted to let you know I'm still traveling, and lost track of what happened with the images (the Commons link on my talk page no longer works): I'll catch up with you when I'm home. Sandy (Talk) 15:06, 11 November 2006 (UTC)

Phenobarbital image

Colin, I just created a space-filling model of phenobarbital and intended to add to the article, but after a quick look at the skeletal structure currently in the Drugbox I'm worried the rotation on my image may be confusing. Would you mind having a look? Thanks in advance, Fvasconcellos 16:23, 27 October 2006 (UTC)

Yeah, that's what I meant. There is indeed a move to SVG (in fact, I upload all my structural diagrams as SVGs), and I could certainly create SVGs of the barbiturates all rotated the same way for comparison purposes. All barbiturate structures have this orientation on PubChem – do you think this would look good? Fvasconcellos 23:30, 27 October 2006 (UTC)
I use Inkscape. It's free and pretty easy to get the hang of, although my methods probably aren't the most effective (sketch the molecule on ChemSketch, export to TIFF, and than trace in Inkscape by hand). It takes a while longer than just exporting to PNG, but it makes for lighter files as well. I'm quite sure BKchem has native SVG support though, do you have the most recent version?
Anyway, I've had a look at all the barbiturate pages and the images are all very good, except for talbutal (it's a GIF and pretty non-standard). I don't think there's a need to "remake" all of them, I guess I'll just upload a better version of my space-filling model for phenobarbital. Thanks, Fvasconcellos 12:54, 28 October 2006 (UTC)
Updated version. Fvasconcellos 14:42, 28 October 2006 (UTC)
Definitely worth it, I agree. I've added it to the article, and created an SVG for talbutal. Thanks again for your input! Best, Fvasconcellos 15:06, 28 October 2006 (UTC)
I'll get to that soon, I was offline yesterday. I reduced the quality for faster rendering, I didn't think it would affect export quality as well... :( Fvasconcellos 23:13, 30 October 2006 (UTC)

Depo Provera

Hi Colin, I think your comments would be more helpful if you read a little more of the talkpage--the whole NOR argument, the WHO removal comments below that, the multiple anon IP subject below that, SlimVirgin's comment etc., to get minorly adequate pic of issues. Thanks, Cindery 10:38, 3 November 2006 (UTC)

please revert accidental blanking?

Hi Colin, I think you may have accidentally blanked almost the whole Depo talkpage? Thanks, Cindery 10:45, 3 November 2006 (UTC)

Thanks

for fixing blanking! :-) But, it would still help more if you read the two disputed citations in the article--re herpes and re glutamate excitotoxicity--in the "disadvantages" section of the article--they are each a sentence long. (And more of the talkpage--you look a little tiny bit, um, silly maybe, because I cite the text re primary/secondary you claim you would like to see directly below your comment that you would like to see it. Also, the "nature" of the anon's objections (they are not really NOR) becomes a little more apparent if you read from NOR to the bottom of talkpage--not a long stretch. Thanks, Cindery 10:54, 3 November 2006 (UTC)

Academico45

Colin, in regard of your changes to my edit of the article about epilepsy, I should stress I have been working in the epilepsy field for many years, and I am considered an expert in the field. I disagree with your corrections. You claimed that "chronic" is not part of the official definition. Aside from the fact that it is not clear which definition of epilepsy you are following (please specify it since it appears be 10 years old), your statement is not correct. You should be aware that many insults to the central nervous system can induce acute seizures, which are an acute response to the injury. These acute seizures may be recurrent for a pariod of just few days up to 2 weeks (sub-acute interval), but are never considered to be epilepsy. For seizures to be epileptic they must be chronic (i.e. occur at later times after injury), recurrent and spontaneous. If they are not chronic, they are not epileptic by definition.

You also claim that the term epilepsy is not interchangeable with epileptic seizures. Please, explain why. Epilepsy is the neurological disorder that manifests itself with epileptic seizures, that are chronic recurrent and spontaneous seizures. A person with epilepsy is a person with chronic recurrent spontaneous seizures.

kind regards, Academico45. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Academico45 (talkcontribs) 05:36, 6 November 2006.

List of atheists

Hello Colin. Thank you for your thoughtful review of this article. I believe the best place to start in addressing these suggestions is with the lead section, since the contents of the rest of the article will be determined by this.

I have expanded the lead as you suggested, and also deleted the criterion that a person's atheism must be relevant to their public life and works in order to be listed. Please let me know what you think about the lead: Is it clear enough and succinct enough? Are the criteria for inclusion valid? Thank you. Nick Graves 17:30, 1 December 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for your response, Colin. I based many of my recent edits on your input because, after reviewing your edit history, I knew you were quite experienced with lists of people. Besides this, the criticisms seemed quite valid to me. I was fully prepared to slow down and talk with other contributors if they took exception to any of the changes. However, I will certainly seek input from others who have contributed to the list in order to form a solid foundation (inclusion criteria, proper sources) based on consensus.
A major frustration I've had with this list is that some editors had insisted that their preferred definition for atheist is the definition for the word, and then have applied this label to those who might never have used it for themselves (and might even reject it; eg. Darwin). That's why I've come to believe that the best criterion for determining if someone is an atheist is whether they have used the word to describe themselves.
Another frustration was that there had been little attempt to document the claims that someone was an atheist, and what little documentation there was came from poor sources with overly broad inclusion criteria and a vested interest in claiming as many famous people as possible as "atheists." This frustration is similar to your experience with the list of people with epilepsy.
Fortunately, I think the article is turning the corner on these issues. I don't know how far back you've looked in the history, but more rigorous inclusion criteria have resulted in the list being significantly trimmed since early fall. Much of the documentation is still not of the highest quality, and the citations certainly need major formatting changes, but at least there is some sort of documentation present. Documentation was utterly lacking before.
Thanks again for all of the helpful suggestion. Nick Graves 01:41, 3 December 2006 (UTC)
Hello Colin. I have followed your suggestion and changed the citation format for the Activists and Educators section of this list. This is new for me. Could you take a look at the section and tell me if everything looks ok before I proceed with the rest of the list? Thank you. Nick Graves 03:50, 14 December 2006 (UTC)

List of guest stars on The Simpsons

There, even though the book were not used in the making of the list and they had to be looked up online and even though they are less accurate than some of the fan pages, they have been added. Is there anything else that needs doing or was that your only compaint? -- Scorpion 15:43, 17 December 2006 (UTC)

I'm going to say right now that I'm not doing that. Because, right now, it's featured list quality. Sure, not officially, but people just use lack of sources as an easy way to fail lists or articles they dislike, which is proved in the fact that the list was failed despite a 6-2 approval. And why won't I do it? It's because you are suggesting I delete the entire list and then readd only the guest stars listed on the official website and that would make the list incomplete. Yes, it would meet the sourcing requirements, but an incomplete list is not FL quality. If you had a list of US Presidents that only had 40, you would probably consider it an absolute travesty and try to fail that list should it be trying for FL status. Well, that's how I feel, and if it means that in order to keep a complete, up to date and quality list that I can't get FL status, then so be it. -- Scorpion 19:02, 20 December 2006 (UTC)
People DO use sources as an excuse. Most people just say "Oppose: Lack of sources" instead of commenting on the actual content of the article. And, like I said, I'm not doing a thing that will make my list incomplete, because to become an FL, there are several important parts, ie. Being well formatted, well sourced, accurate and complete. And a list that is INTENTIONALLY not as complete as possible is not an FL in my mind, especially when there are sources. Yes, it's a fan page, but it's still extremely accurate and a better source than the official site, so why not use it? I know that the policy says no fansites, but Simpsons fans are well-known for their attention to detail and devotion, so in terms of episode content (plot, guests, hidden things, etc), I'd take a fan site over the official site any day. -- Scorpion 00:24, 21 December 2006 (UTC)

Re: The Institutes for The Achievement of Human Potential (IAHP)

Oh, huh. If the group/individual is being very abusive, WP:AUTO and WP:COI can apply, I believe. I've sometimes had better luck by pointing out policies such as WP:NPOV and WP:V, and asking that if they have any particular problems with the article, they mention them on the talk page for somebody to take care of. If there's obvious junk or vandalism, I don't have any problem with their removing it; beyond that, they would have to admit that, at least objectively speaking, they're not a neutral party in terms of trying to write a scholarly article.

Sirolimus

Sure, I'll see what I can do. Structures like this always make me cringe, but what's the fun if there's no challenge? :) Due to the drug's 3D aspect, a regular skeletal formula wouldn't look right, as you can see by the GIF already in place (the bond angles and lengths are not all "standard"). I think a ball-and-stick model would help give an idea of the three-dimensional shape of the molecule; have a look at this one for docetaxel and tell me what you think. As for the diagram, I'll probably have to do something like this one (for teicoplanin), is that OK?

Coeliac

Brilliant work on the coeliac page. The Levanon syndrome thing was fantastic NOR. JFW | T@lk 00:22, 8 March 2007 (UTC)

Username

Yeah, some of the moves did not take place. I'm not sure of the reason why that was happening so I put it up on the usurpation talk page. For some reason, the old user talk page did not get moved to Colin (usurped) and so it threw up an error when I tried to move yours to your new username. This can only be fixed by deletion and then moving, which requires admin intervention. =Nichalp «Talk»= 17:53, 18 March 2007 (UTC)
