Hello Elizabeth and welcome to SNPedia. I appreciate your recent contributions, but your edits seem to be removing some important information. An examples is here. I've corrected all of these, and merged in your new citations [PMID 21253534]. But please consider what might be causing this problem, and respond on this page or via email to info@snpedia.com. thank you cariaso 13:53, 12 March 2011 (UTC)

Hello Cariaso - I did not touch those brackets or their contents when I did my edit. I'm using Firefox to do my editing and usually choosing the 'Edit' option. Is there any known issue with the browser or with one or the other of those editing options dropping the SNP links? Additionally, is there a proper way to merge in new citations, or is this not a worry for now? I appreciate any criticism and look forward to contributing more in a correct format.Elizabeth_Craig 12 March 2011
Well we're managing to do just fine here on your talk page, so that's a pretty good start. I've not seen anyone have a problem quite like the one you are experiencing, but
  1. The next time you want to put your name and a timestamp you can put 4 tildes in a row ~~~~ and that will be replaced by your signature and a timestamp.
  2. The next step for me is to reproduce the problem. Would you please make a small change to one of the sentences on the page rs4680. It suspect that when you're done all the occurrences of rs4680 will have been removed from the page text.
Thanks for your assistance with this investigation. cariaso 15:22, 12 March 2011 (UTC)

I used RockMelt to write the above, I just finished an edit of RS4680 with FireFox version #3.6.15 and sure enough, anything in those double square brackets gets removed. I'll use RockMelt for my edits from now on. I was using FireFox since that has the SNPtips add-on enabled. Elizabeth Craig 16:09, 12 March 2011 (UTC)

I feel certain that SNPtips is the source of the trouble here. I'll send them a note to see if it can be fixed in the next release. Paging User:Wimufi cariaso 16:34, 12 March 2011 (UTC)
Is there something I should be doing to further link in the PubMed citations properly? I am not sure what would qualify one to be added in the body as opposed to adding it to the right-bottom corner of the page (in the column). If that's too advanced and I should just keep doing what I'm doing (minus the FireFox/SNPtips problem) please let me know =) Elizabeth Craig 17:23, 12 March 2011 (UTC)
Things which were bulk loaded sometimes go into the special templates along the right hand side. Stuff from humans like yourself, should go into regular page text. Keep doing whatever seems right and I'll keep an eye out and let you know if something could be done better. cariaso 17:58, 12 March 2011 (UTC)

Numerous edits, including a new SNP. Everything looks exactly as it should. Welcome, we're glad you're here. 20:23, 13 March 2011 (UTC)

RS7180849 - I have no bloody clue how to tell what the common and uncommon allele's are. I'm on http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/projects/SNP/snp_ref.cgi?rs=7180849 trying to figure it out this morning, but I've got to get to work. ;) Does anyone have any insight on this? I must be missing something obvious! Elizabeth Craig 11:47, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

The C genotype appears to be more common, based on the account of green at shown in the hapmap samples at this url
this edit had 2 conventions to note, both of which are fixed by step1 and step2
  1. keep the major template before the first bit of page text (Major templates a {{Gene}}, {{Rsnum}},{{Genotype}},...). This helps the box fit to the top right corner of the page.
  2. Since this was the page for the normal genotype, I moved the text back to the rs# page, to avoid causing any alarm on the normal genotype pages and to attract more attention. cariaso 18:22, 14 March 2011 (UTC)
Thank you for the clarification on how to read the HapMap samples.
  1. I didn't realize that the specified code had to stay at the top, thank you for correcting me!
  2. I didn't realize that I did anything odd with where I put that info - did I not edit the RS157180 page and edited RS157180(C;C) instead?
I promise I'll get this eventually, thank you for your kind patience Elizabeth Craig 20:35, 14 March 2011 (UTC)
