Import[edit source]

User:Ozzie10aaaa No worries. Best to use the "fork" button rather than the "import" function... Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 00:50, 12 March 2022 (UTC)
good point...BTW Im almost done with Rift valley fever video, so I was wondering (I noticed your interested in translations[3]) I had done Video:Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 , and Im interested in doing the article (due to the COVID-19) in es and fr, so the question is (1) can the es and fr article be imported and (2) does video wiki artificial voice do fr and es ([4] I noticed the top right menu offers different landuages)?,Ozzie--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 19:40, 13 March 2022 (UTC)
Okay so you are wanting to translate the Video into ES and FR? We have VideoWiki working in both those languages.
We do not have MDWiki in other languages and can simple put those in Wikipedia in those languages. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 00:25, 18 March 2022 (UTC)
James, the es/fr articles need a lot of work (but if we cant have them here, at MDWiki) then maybe best to wait at some other point, it might be good to consider in the future that some articles that stand out like COVID-19 pandemic(and related articles) might be better to have in more than just one language , Ozzie--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 12:48, 18 March 2022 (UTC) (P.S. I think videowiki is stuck[5])
Doc James, thank you[6]--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 17:08, 23 March 2022 (UTC)
[7]??--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 00:03, 15 March 2022 (UTC)
Thanks for showing me this. Reached out to cyber to fix it. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 00:37, 18 March 2022 (UTC)
the thing I noticed was that [8] is not forked its still a mirror (yet it was doing this [9]) thats why I though to alert you,thanks,Ozzie--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 12:45, 18 March 2022 (UTC)
Yes thanks. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 15:01, 19 March 2022 (UTC)
  • with regard to [10] I believe your correct, it is a similar image--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 20:07, 24 March 2022 (UTC) (BTW, [11] Rift Valley fever video is shown twice...)
Yes both within a single channel... Not figured out a way to replace an old with a new version. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 02:19, 27 March 2022 (UTC)
ok( maybe [12]),Ozzie--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 19:54, 27 March 2022 (UTC)
Yes it says "You can’t replace a video since any new video uploads will get a new URL, but you can change the existing video." Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 02:19, 30 March 2022 (UTC)
Doc James, [13] it seems not to be producing the image (I apologize about the repeated posts, Id fix it if I knew how...perhaps its something minor)Ozzie--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 17:47, 30 March 2022 (UTC)
Thanks for flagging this User:Ozzie10aaaa will look into it. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 17:49, 30 March 2022 (UTC)
Doc James, thank you[14], Ozzie--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 16:36, 31 March 2022 (UTC) (added[15] to page, let me know if ok...)
Looks good to me Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 08:41, 4 April 2022 (UTC)
thanks--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 18:01, 4 April 2022 (UTC)
  • Doc James, I exported the video[16] however, its not there [17]...Ozzie--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 15:57, 9 April 2022 (UTC)
Yah will look into it. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 16:00, 9 April 2022 (UTC)
James, thank you,Ozzie--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 17:06, 9 April 2022 (UTC) (Its on youtube [18] but still not [19]--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 14:30, 11 April 2022 (UTC))
User:Ozzie10aaaa Try reuploading... Should be fixed now. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 17:02, 11 April 2022 (UTC)
a small box on the top right hand corner indicates [20] 'a version has already been exported' ...--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 18:34, 11 April 2022 (UTC)...Doc James ,its working ,thank you ( however I noticed it never export to [21])...--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 17:25, 13 April 2022 (UTC)
User:Ozzie10aaaa it is on NC Commons as one of the images much be from there.[22] Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 18:51, 13 April 2022 (UTC)

great, thanks...--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 19:18, 13 April 2022 (UTC)
  • Doc James, this occurred yesterday[24] and it hasnt moved(I always follow the same steps), as usual I appreciate any help,thank you Ozzie--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 13:01, 1 May 2022 (UTC)(P.S. shorter day today will be back tomorrow, Ozzie)
User:Ozzie10aaaa okay will take a look. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 03:29, 4 May 2022 (UTC)
Doc James, thank you, Ozzie--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 01:38, 5 May 2022 (UTC)
  • James, (when you get back) I'd appreciate it if you took a look at Influenza A virus subtype H5N1 article, I finished it however should you have the time just to see if there might be something missing or something that needs to be fixed, thank you as always (BTW Lassa fever video[25] and article[26] are still divided), Ozzie --Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 15:22, 31 May 2022 (UTC)
    • Thanks. Made a few small changes. Still havn't heard back from Hassam. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 23:54, 1 June 2022 (UTC)
James, thank you for your edits, Ozzie--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 13:07, 2 June 2022 (UTC) (BTW, I did this [27] instead of the usual interactive version I always insert because I wasnt able to figure out how to with [28], Ozzie)
User:Ozzie10aaaa looks good. Yes no easy way to use the map specifically. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 00:51, 4 June 2022 (UTC)
ok :-( Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 12:42, 4 June 2022 (UTC)

Translating titles of articles[edit source]

Hi! When translating content from English into other languages, should one also translate the title? I began work on the Cardiomyopathy article, so should I just transliterate the medical terms and the title or should I translate them as well? MxYamato (talk) 09:55, 6 June 2022 (UTC)

User:MxYamato I am not sure. I think the custom depends on the language. What term is most commonly used in the target language? Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 15:10, 6 June 2022 (UTC)
I think I will translate what when translated makes sense to the layman, and transliterate the rest. One thing I noticed is that translations into Oriya by one of the translators includes the infobox in English without translation, see [29]. Is there any consensus or precedent in this regard? Also, MDWiki includes things like the prices of medication, and this sort of information is not acceptable on some Wikipedias. So, I suppose the translation needs to take these into account? If so, could you please other such similiar things to keep note of while translating from MDWiki to WMF projects?MxYamato (talk) 10:59, 7 June 2022 (UTC)
The infobox should generally be translated. The translation tool does not support that very well which is why I think Subas does often do that. It is only EN WP that sometimes doesn't want prices but often contains prices, not aware of other languages position on this. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 15:21, 7 June 2022 (UTC)

NARWHAL[edit source]

Howdy :) I'm organizing North American projects + organizations on Meta so we can figure out who might be interested in / benefit from a hub. Simplifying the process of simple technical + translation tasks (both sourcing people + overhead) feels like a challenge we all share. Could you take a look and tell me what I'm missing? Warmly, Sj (talk) 23:37, 20 June 2022 (UTC)

Thanks User:Sj. We do not see ourselves as particularly tied to North America with less than half our board located in that jurisdiction. We are however open to collaboration with other movement entities in NA. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 00:35, 21 June 2022 (UTC)
That makes sense. How do you feel about peer support for non-geographic groups -- should there be a non-geographic hub? I appreciate the spirit of hubs as wheel-greasers and every project having support from at least one such... Sj (talk) 16:33, 22 June 2022 (UTC)
Would be good to have a hub that is not geographically based. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 22:50, 22 June 2022 (UTC)

was unaware[edit source]

California Institute of Technology/electrophoresis...(BTW on a different note [30])--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 16:38, 24 June 2022 (UTC)

  • Doc James, was able to download Chikungunya video to my laptop and then upload [31] & super trimmed Anthrax (-4781) and got it to work[32]--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 18:26, 9 July 2022 (UTC)
User:Ozzie10aaaa Perfect. Well done. It seems like the issue is the auto upload to Commons. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 20:50, 10 July 2022 (UTC)


Listeriosis and other[edit source]

  • Doc James, I realize your busy however should you have the time to look at Listeriosis specifically subsection Classification, under Diagnosis. I've gone thru it a few times and would prefer a second opinion on that subsection(please trim or add as you see fit in this subsection-text, references, or anything that may not be objective), thank you as always,Ozzie--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 14:25, 22 July 2022 (UTC)
Sure will look Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 14:36, 22 July 2022 (UTC)
Doc James, thank you Ozzie--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 15:18, 22 July 2022 (UTC)


Doc James, I created this Superior orbital fissure syndrome from Superior orbital fissure (however since the latter is an anatomical article it really has no use here), wanted to let you know in case you came across the article, Ozzie--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 19:29, 23 July 2022 (UTC)

User:Ozzie10aaaa sounds good. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 04:13, 24 July 2022 (UTC)



  • Doc James, I usually get images from Openi, however in this case I found an article (not in Openi)[33] that had a good image and license and therefore [34], its the same thing either way...? Ozzie--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 19:45, 21 August 2022 (UTC)
    • Looks like the license is "Creative Commons Attribution License, which permits unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original work is properly cited." so could go on Wikimedia Commons. But either way looks good. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 21:42, 21 August 2022 (UTC)
thanks, Ozzie--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 22:53, 21 August 2022 (UTC)


James,thank you (good luck), Ozzie--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 18:02, 11 September 2022 (UTC)

Doc James, I was wondering if there is any update for Videowiki ( I tried with a different video Video:Tick-borne encephalitis however, its still a little stuck), thanks Ozzie--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 22:38, 9 October 2022 (UTC)

User:Ozzie10aaaa you mean the upload to Commons is stuck? Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 13:40, 13 October 2022 (UTC)
Doc James, yes (Step 2) [36], Ozzie--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 14:02, 13 October 2022 (UTC)
Yah I am working on trying to find someone who can fix it / find funding to fix it. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 03:29, 17 October 2022 (UTC)
Doc James, ok...slowly we'll get there, Ozzie--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 13:44, 17 October 2022 (UTC)

Test[edit source]

Doc James video looks great, how did you do it/make it work ?? ...(BTW that seems to be one hard 'stitch'), Ozzie--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 15:07, 28 October 2022 (UTC)

Yah so
1) Used firefox with the VideoHelper extension
2) Visited the journal page in question and downloaded the MP4
3) Used these apps[37] to convert the video from MP4 to WebM
4) Uploaded to NC Commons.
Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 15:39, 28 October 2022 (UTC)
really cool, will look into giving it a try, Ozzie--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 17:45, 28 October 2022 (UTC)
Yes... looks excellent, will try and learn it. Thank you. I imagine Ozzie10aaaa will pick this up far more quickly than I will. Whispyhistory (talk) 05:05, 29 October 2022 (UTC)


Shock[edit source]

User:Ozzie10aaaa I think it makes sense to have it in both places :-) Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 15:57, 8 November 2022 (UTC)
Doc James, thank you, Ozzie--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 17:37, 8 November 2022 (UTC)

Yersinia pestis[edit source]

Doc James, should you have the time I'd appreciate your opinion on Yersinia pestis (be as frank as possible, I labored thru some of the article), thank you, Ozzie--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 15:36, 11 November 2022 (UTC)

Sure will take a look in a bit. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 10:21, 12 November 2022 (UTC)
