Body cavityEdit

Hi Tom - hope all is well, you don't seem to have been around much lately. Just thought I would mention the page body cavity something seems amiss (to me) at first it states that body cavity refers to any fluid-filled space in an animal and goes on to include human body cavities that are not filled with fluid such as the cranial cavity. Am I missing something here? The fluid containing cavities such as the pleural cavity, are not mentioned. All best --Iztwoz (talk) 19:12, 27 June 2019 (UTC)

Hi Iztwoz, unfortunately (from a Wikipedia point of view) I've been on an intense two year training program that is pretty all absorbing. I agree the body cavity page is strange and also that it is weirdly organised. I might post on WP anatomy and we can talk there about it. With regards to the definition - technically the cranial cavity is fluid filled (with cerebrospinal fluid) but frankly the lay definition of a body cavity is, surely, a cavity that is in the body. It just happens that most are fluid filled and therefore some people describe them like that. I have however heard the orbital cavity described as one which is surely an exception and clearly it is not completely filled with fluid anteriorly. Hope everything is going well on your side! --Tom (LT) (talk) 03:33, 29 June 2019 (UTC)
Sorry Tom I went ahead and did some editing without noticing that you had already done some - I hope I didn't affect anything you did - I did make it more 'human body' oriented but of course if that's not wanted feel free to change - apologies again for possibly giving you more work.--Iztwoz (talk) 11:03, 29 June 2019 (UTC)
@Iztwoz actually these aren't so bad. I linked the set to the relevant non cavity articles (eg "Thorax" to "Thoracic cavity") and left it at that. The cavity articles are in surprisingly good form. --Tom (LT) (talk) 15:21, 3 July 2019 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Category:WikiProject Peer review pagesEdit

A tag has been placed on Category:WikiProject Peer review pages requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section C1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the category has been empty for seven days or more and is not a disambiguation category, a category redirect, a featured topics category, under discussion at Categories for discussion, or a project category that by its nature may become empty on occasion.

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 deleted 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. Liz Read!

WP:CEN is now open!Edit

To all interested parties: Now that it has a proper shortcut, the current events noticeboard has now officially opened for discussion!

WP:CEN came about as an idea I explored through a request for comment that closed last March. Recent research has re-opened the debate on Wikipedia's role in a changing faster-paced internet. Questions of WP:NOTNEWS and WP:Recentism are still floating around. That being said, there are still plenty of articles to write and hopefully this noticeboard can positively contribute to that critical process.

Thank you for your participation in the RFC, and I hope to see you at WP:CEN soon! –MJLTalk 19:10, 29 June 2019 (UTC)

Hello Tom have just made some edits on Abdomen page - is the table really necessary? and should I ask such things here on on article talk page? Thanks --Iztwoz (talk) 08:49, 1 July 2019 (UTC)

@Iztwoz no strong feeling here. Tried to neaten some things up and didn't really see the point of the bullet points there; a table is a little easier I think but wouldn't object if it were removed completely. --Tom (LT) (talk) 15:21, 3 July 2019 (UTC)
