Flood flag

Um, could you please use the flood flag? Your recent deletions are clogging recent changes. Thanks. Tempodivalse [talk] 22:30, 3 November 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Meh. All done anyways. --ShakataGaNai ^_^ 22:36, 3 November 2009 (UTC)[reply]

A couple of points

You may remember that in September 2009, you pointed out that I had some issues with copyright violation while the votes were coming in for my request for Editor status. I owe you my partial thanks for helping to put me on the right track. If it wasn't for your intervention at the time, I would have been given responsibilities that I would have inadvertantly misused. So erm, thanks for that. But that editor request is one of the reasons that I'm here and talking to you think that I would eligible for Editor status now? Also, I would like you to comment on my new customised signature. Thanks, Rayboy8 (my talk) 20:33, 4 November 2009 (UTC)[reply]

"Swine flu" is not politically correct?

[1] = ? How is that? Most articles we wrote about the virus in the past called it "swine flu" with no problems. Calling it "H1N1" sounds more confusing than calling it "swine flu", which is the more commonly known name for it. Tempodivalse [talk] 18:56, 6 November 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Swine flu is misleading apparently, and less accurate than "A/H1N1" or "H1N1". –Juliancolton | Talk 18:58, 6 November 2009 (UTC)[reply]
Less accurate at the scientific level, yes, but it refers to the same thing in vernacular conversation, and i think we should use the most commonly used term for it. Not everyone might understand what we're talking about if it's called simply "A/H1N1" or "H1N1". Can we perhaps use both names in the title: i.e. "H1N1 swine flu virus" to avoid any possible ambiguity, while still keeping the meaning clear? Tempodivalse [talk] 19:04, 6 November 2009 (UTC)[reply]
Well, that'd be fine in the text, but redundant for the title. I think that by now people will be familiar with both "H1N1" and "swine flu", so I think we should ideally strive to be as accurate as possible. –Juliancolton | Talk 19:27, 6 November 2009 (UTC)[reply]
