Noticed You Are Editing Some Medical Stuff[edit]

You might wish to introduce yourself and goals to User:JWSchmidt. He is a neuroscientist who edits quite a few medically related articles for us. We also have some medical students wandering around. I will allow you to find them by checking histories on medical articles or asking around at the Colloquium or other community pages. Once again, welcome and feel free to consult me at my talk page.

Hello[edit]

Hi Km - thanks for your edits to Wikiversity! I changed some of your edits in Immune system to use Wiki syntax instead. To make bullets and lists, use the star (*), for example, like this: * Immune system * Skeletal system * Integumentary system Cheers, and happy editing. --HappyCamper 20:17, 24 December 2007 (UTC)

Venus and Mercury[edit]

Thanks for your contributions. I didn't create those pages, but I did add a little info to them. Also see the page on Liquid water on Europa which is another new page that could benefit from some editing. Have you seen the Observational astronomy lessons that I created? I'm looking for someone to try the lesson instructions out, and then let me know if there is anything confusing or unlcear. Feel free to drop me a note if there is anything in the page that you don't understand, and I'll write up a better explanation. Thanks, --mikeu 16:17, 16 January 2008 (UTC)

You don't need a telescope or camera for the Observational astronomy, but I see now that I should probably make that clearer in the instructions. The lesson is to use a computer to download free pictures that were taken with a telescope and then look for details in the images. If you prefer to look at the Europa page or anything else, that is fine. Whatever you are most interested in learning. Just drop me a note if you need any help or hints on finding your way around and editing. --mikeu 01:56, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

Currency[edit]

Hi Km, good to have you around. However, I was looking at your additions of currency articles (eg $1 bill) - they're straight copies of Wikipedia articles. Were you thinking of editing these into educational resources? If not, I don't think we need to have a page identical to Wikipedia. Cormaggio talk 18:29, 15 February 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for your response. Could you expand on what you mean by "educational purposes"? I've left some comments here. Cormaggio talk 08:15, 7 October 2008 (UTC)
I know that Wikiversity is an educational site (!), but the issue is whether we need duplications of Wikipedia pages. Wikipedia is also an educational site, but a specific type of one - just as Wikibooks is, and just as Wikiversity is. If you could indicate how those pages are to offer something different to the Wikipedia pages, even how they are helping you personally to learn, that would be great. Thanks, Cormaggio talk 13:24, 9 October 2008 (UTC)

Bill of Rights[edit]

May I suggest that you move Bill of rights to the name "Bill of Rights" because it is a proper noun? If you have any questions, or need any help, please feel free to contact me. Ottava Rima (talk) 13:56, 15 September 2008 (UTC)

Already done. Enjoy. Ottava Rima (talk) 13:33, 6 October 2008 (UTC)
