Do You need any more evidence? Yahadzija (talk) 18:55, 6 June 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The source you cite is actually not bad, but it ignores the other meaning of "selfing" as self-pollination. "Selfing" as used by sources that claim it as an alternative term for "self-fertilization" is not the primary term, but an alternative. To those sources, the primary term is "self-fertilization". The page should not be called "selfing" unless it defines both meanings of the term. Also, there is another page called self-fertilization, so you are creating competing content. I believe that the section you have called "Genetic consequences of selfing" would be better discussed on the page inbreeding, because self-fertilization is a special case of inbreeding.

I'm happy to see you editing again. Are you un-retiring? I hope so. Oiyarbepsy (talk) 05:26, 7 June 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thank you for the good wishes. I don't expect to do very much editing under this signon though I am active in other ways online under a different persona. Here I'm just retaining a few pages on a watch list, occasionally making a new page, and uploading photos to commons. Very good wishes to you Oiyarbepsy.

Short descriptions are supposed to be short[edit]

You just can't capture all the nuances of an article (or a medical condition) in a short description. They are there for the mobile interface search, where they help people decide which page they wanted to find. Anyway, thanks for caring enough about Narcissistic personality disorders to revert my change. Gnuish (talk) 19:49, 16 March 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Native range of Chinese Quince[edit]

Nadiatalent Thanks for the edit to the article on Pseudocydonia. Do you think you could put in a source? Both the original and your edit don't cite any, which is problematic. Cheers, Fredlesaltique (talk) 02:04, 26 January 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Done. The GRIN database lists the provinces of China where it is native. Nadiatalent (talk) 08:21, 26 January 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
