Disambiguation link notification for April 25[edit]

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

It may seem silly to reply to a bot, but I might as well justify myself. In edition Telomerase_RNA_component, I wanted a wikilink to the word template to clarify the meaning of that word in the context of the article (especially to readers for whom English is not the native language). Disambiguation pages often contain entries to Wikipedia pages that are specific to the meaning desired, but in this case the meaning desired was in the "Molecular genetics" section — which only contains links to DNA and RNA. Moreover, for reverse transcriptase, RNA is serving as a template for DNA, not for protein. But linking to the disambiguation page gives lots of relevant information that will make the concept of "template" clear enough to non-English speakers or children. --Ben Best 13:12, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

Notification[edit]

Please carefully read this information:

The Arbitration Committee has authorised discretionary sanctions to be used for pages regarding Austrian school of economics and the Ludwig von Mises Institute, a topic which you have edited. The Committee's decision is here.

Discretionary sanctions is a system of conduct regulation designed to minimize disruption to controversial topics. This means uninvolved administrators can impose sanctions for edits relating to the topic that do not adhere to the purpose of Wikipedia, our standards of behavior, or relevant policies. Administrators may impose sanctions such as editing restrictions, bans, or blocks. This message is to notify you sanctions are authorised for the topic you are editing. Before continuing to edit this topic, please familiarise yourself with the discretionary sanctions system. Don't hesitate to contact me or another editor if you have any questions.

Disambiguation link notification for August 6[edit]

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

The link to Biennial was done consciously. That page is not simply a disambiguation page, because the definition given at the beginning (which is the reason I made the link) is not contained in any of the subsequent links on that page. --Ben Best 12:33, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

Your signature[edit]

Hi Benbest, I noticed that your signature lacks any links to your user page or user talk page. Per WP:SIGLINK, editors must have at least one internal link to either your user page or user talk page. —/Mendaliv//Δ's/ 19:48, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

A tag has been placed on File:Cryonics Institute Logo.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia.

Hello, I'm ReferenceBot. I have automatically detected that an edit performed by you may have introduced errors in referencing. It is as follows:

Please check this page and fix the errors highlighted. If you think this is a false positive, you can report it to my operator. Thanks, ReferenceBot (talk) 00:21, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

    • The edit created an apparent error because it referenced a citation in a different section than the section I was editing. However, there was no error when my editing was complete because the reference was able to access the other section. --Ben Best:Talk 11:01, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

Copying within Wikipedia requires proper attribution[edit]

Information icon Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you copied or moved text from Senescence into Cellular senescence. 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, disclosing the copying and linking to the copied page, e.g., copied content from [[page name]]; see that page's history for attribution. 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) 15:02, 4 November 2016 (UTC)

Remember that when adding content about health, please only use high-quality reliable sources as references. We typically use review articles, major textbooks and position statements of national or international organizations (There are several kinds of sources that discuss health: here is how the community classifies them and uses them). WP:MEDHOW walks you through editing step by step. A list of resources to help edit health content can be found here. The edit box has a built-in citation tool to easily format references based on the PMID or ISBN. We also provide style advice about the structure and content of medicine-related encyclopedia articles. The welcome page is another good place to learn about editing the encyclopedia.

extra sources[edit]

Hello, I removed an additional coindance source you added to the Bitcoin article. In general one source is enough. Sometimes two sources might be good in the case where content is controversial (meaning other editors suggest to delete it). But in general one is enough. There is an essay about this called WP:OVERKILL that also talks about too many sources. Mostly that overkill essay is about edit warring and I am not suggesting you were doing that. Just wanted to show you the essay in case you were curious. Happy editing :-) Jtbobwaysf (talk) 10:14, 21 July 2017 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Liberstad (Norway)[edit]

The article Liberstad (Norway) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Doesn't meet WP:GEOLAND; no legal recognition and no significant coverage.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. power~enwiki (π, ν) 21:31, 6 November 2017 (UTC)

Edit war warning[edit]

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at Steemit shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you are reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not edit-war. See BRD for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly. Jytdog (talk) 20:19, 2 May 2018 (UTC)

Unsourced promotional content[edit]

  • Please stop adding unsourced content, as you did to Steemit. This contravenes Wikipedia's policy on verifiability. If you continue to do so, you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia.

-- Jytdog (talk) 20:20, 2 May 2018 (UTC)

  • You are the one engaging in unjustified reversions and edit warring. But you are too nasty a person to deal with and I am not prone to fighting like you are, so I will not carry this issue any further and will allow your reversion to stand. --Ben Best:Talk 21:52, 2 May 2018 (UTC)

Conflict of interest[edit]

btw, please be aware that the community has determined that holding a cryptocurrency and editing about that currency creates a conflict of interest.

If you hold steemit, please disclose that, and please refrain from editing directly about it or its competitors. Please see WP:COI.

Thanks. Jytdog (talk) 20:24, 2 May 2018 (UTC)

  • I do not own STEEM or participate in the Steemit social networking community. I was updating a page was reading for the first time to make the information current. You continue to defame my character without any evidence, which shows what a nasty temperament you have. Please be more civilized. --Ben Best:Talk 21:50, 2 May 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for clarifying that you don't hold Steem. Our articles on cryptocurrencies have been getting hammered by people hyping them, editing and behaving badly.

A tag has been placed on International School of Temple Arts, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page seems to be unambiguous advertising which only promotes a company, group, product, service, person, or point of view and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become encyclopedic. Please read the guidelines on spam and Wikipedia:FAQ/Organizations for more information.

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.

After a speedy deletion of the International School of Temple Arts article, I asked that it be restored. An administrator has restored it &, at a user's request, has moved it to Draft:International School of Temple Arts. I would suggest expanding the article as best as possible from the stuff.co.nz, redrocknews.com, & brigitte.de sources.

"Cholesterol crystals are believed to both impair myelin repair and aggrevate inflammation.[1][2]"

Also please read WP:MEDRS. Best Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 02:54, 1 June 2018 (UTC)

    • Did you read either of these papers before asking your question or deleting my entry? It is hard to believe that you did.
    • First reference (comment on the second reference), first paragraph: "...insufficient clearance (phagocytosis) of damaged myelin by aged macrophages results in accumulation of cholesterol crystals in these cells, which elicits a maladaptive inflammatory reaponse that is associated with impaired remyelination>'
    • Second reference (Science 359:684 (2018), in this case all you needed to do was to read the abstract in order to see: "Aged phagocytes accumulated excessive amounts of myelin debris, which triggered cholesterol crystal formation and phagolysosomal membrane rupture and stimulated inflammasomes... inducing a maladaptive immune response that impedes tissue regeneration."

Possible class project on the SASP page[edit]

I am thinking about having my 300 level Biology of Aging do a Wikipedia project on the Senescent-Asssociated secretory phenotype page this spring semester. Do you think there is enough there for a small class project to make a figure and to build on your work on the the page?Jparcoeur (talk) 12:12, 6 December 2019 (UTC)

I think that there is much that could be studied on this project, but I don't think I am able to answer your question. And I don't know what you mean by "make a figure" (a summary illustration?). If you are having trouble with having enough material, you could expand the subject to all properties of senescent cells. --Ben Best:Talk 15:27, 7 December 2019 (UTC)

Endothelin edits[edit]

On my talk page you said, I am not confusing endothelin with endothelium, but I did mis-spell as endothelin-1 as endothelium-1. I generally avoid "revert wars", but I reverted your revert in this case because I did not notice my mis-spelling, and because the information I wrote was solidly based on information in the review articles I cited. One of these articles is easily enough accessed by PMC text: Endothelial function and the regulation of muscle protein anabolism in older adults so you can see for yourself. Unless you have access to a university library system, you may not have access to the other article, but the information I reproduced is accurate. Please revert your revert.

Your content and choice of sources are off topic. There are several reviews on endothelin (not about endothelium). --Zefr (talk) 19:06, 31 March 2020 (UTC)
You are confusing my mis-spelling with being off-topic and you are not reading the papers I cited to verify that the subject of those papers included discussion about endothelin-1. It is incorrect to conclude that the paper titled "Endothelial function and the regulation of muscle protein anabolism in older adult" does not included the information about endothelin-1 that I described. You could verify this by reading the paper rather than just looking at the title. For the other paper, in the paragraph before Protection from adverse effects of risk factors the Seals, et al paper states "Expression of ET‐1 in vascular endothelial cells increases with age in sedentary healthy men (Donato et al. 2009)." where ET-1 is abbreviated from endothelin-1 at the top of that paragraph. Please revert your revert (with the spelling correction, of course). --Ben Best:Talk 19:24, 31 March 2020 (UTC)
