  • Don't know if this is strictly the place for this request, but [[Category:Healing Arts Workgroup]] and [[Category:CZ Live]] should be removed from the end of the approved Chiropractic article. John Stephenson 06:49, 17 December 2010 (UTC)
  • Led Zeppelin - in the introduction: Jimmy Page was born in 1944, not 1946, as corrected on the draft. Correct date is stated on the Page article. This error has been spotted. John Stephenson 02:54, 24 November 2010 (UTC)
Corrected by Matt. John Stephenson 07:26, 24 November 2010 (UTC)
I notified Matt of the error earlier this year but he refused to change it claiming only a music editor could do it. Meg Ireland 11:23, 24 November 2010 (UTC)
  • Industrial_Revolution/Draft - numerous links added, plus a few copyedit type corrections (spelling, redundant word, etc) added by myself and 2 others. I will be expanding the "Social impact" section and would like these technical corrections entered separately before beginning that work. James F. Perry 14:22, 16 April 2010 (UTC)
On the WP list it is listed as open. Sorry, I did not check the page. Peter Schmitt 01:27, 9 February 2010 (UTC)
  • Frederick Twort (WP "approved error")
    • Needs more consideration. "...discovered that bacteriophages are viruses that attack and destroy bacteria." Twort likely discovered that certain viruses destroyed bacteria. It is not obvious to me whether he coined the term "bacteriophage" or whether this came later. I don't feel comfortable giving him this credit without more information. An editor would be great as this does have an element of content reform. D. Matt Innis 01:09, 9 February 2010 (UTC)
I think you got this wrong. Neither sentence claims that he coined the word. It is only not the best English: "he discovered in b. the" means that he indentified b. to be v. and as the cause of . But Daniel would fit as an editor. Peter Schmitt 01:27, 9 February 2010 (UTC)
Certainly appreciate your thoughts. I've responded on the talk page. Chris, maybe you can help as well. D. Matt Innis 04:01, 9 February 2010 (UTC)
  • Terrorism Error located on main article, not on Draft page: illegaly -> illegally

These are some corrections I made yesterday to the draft versions of Approved articles after I "discovered" that the Firefox browser had a spell checker:

I copyedited all the ones above from Ammonia production to Literature. Chris Day 20:27, 4 March 2010 (UTC)

  • The draft version of the Approved Bar (unit) article now has this added to its edit page {{dambigbox|text=This article is about Bar, a unit of [[pressure]]. For other usages, see [[Bar (disambiguation)]].}} because there is now disambiguation page for the word "bar". Thus, the Approved Bar (unit) also needs the same {{dambigbox}} template.

Milt, I left this one above for now. I have forgetten what the disambiguation protocol is right now. Chris Day 20:27, 4 March 2010 (UTC)
