"abduction" under "law"

At some point over the summer the legal concept of "abduction" (= kidnapping) was changed to "alien abduction," the idea that people may be taken by extra-terrestrials, non-human aliens. Clearly that's a mistake, so I've fixed it; "alien abduction" may not belong on this list at all, but if it does, it should be under "esoterics" (in the "religion" section). I think the entry on "extraterrestrial life," already present under "astronomy," sufficiently covers it, though. A. Mahoney (talk) 19:59, 25 November 2014 (UTC)

I don't want to get into an edit war, but I note my change has been reverted with no explanation. Alien abduction clearly does not belong under "law" in this list; abduction or kidnapping does, and is certainly the intended article. If "alien abduction" is considered a suitable topic, it needs to go somewhere else; is there consensus that this is more important than the abduction of humans by fellow humans? A. Mahoney (talk) 13:24, 6 January 2015 (UTC)
The page you're linking to is a disambiguation page. I don't think we should have disambiguation pages in this list. The entry has since been changed to kidnapping. Boivie (talk) 16:50, 6 January 2015 (UTC)

Medicine and Disease rewrite

I propose full rewrite of Medicine anf Disease sections:

  1. to move all diseases from Medicine to Diseases (f.e. Injury section, Aneurism, Myocardial infarction...);
  2. to sort out all diseases to sections according to w:ICD-10 (section names can or cannot be wikified);
  3. some minor changes to retain important articles already in list.

--Igel B TyMaHe (talk) 13:04, 21 May 2015 (UTC)

I don't know much about the subject, but I'm glad you are willing to improve those sections.
In the list of 1000 articles, four new articles have been added, that probably also should be added to this list:
  1. nerve
  2. chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
  3. epilepsy
  4. Gastroenteritis Viral
Would you consider them in your rewrite? Boivie (talk) 07:01, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
Nerve is obviously an anatomic item, the next three could be added... instead of what? Epilepsy is the most important of three, should be in the list. Can cut cancer types to 3-4 types. Based on data from w:en:Epidemiology of cancer, the most important cancers are prostate cancer, lung cancer, colorectal cancer (highest mortality and occurence), breast cancer (highest occurence). COPD and Gastroenteritis are confusing me. Foodborne illness covers much wider and much common illnesses than Gastroenteritis Viral. Ulcer (both skin and peptic) seems more common than COPD and has no cover at all. Ok, I mark changes: Ulcer and three more articles from the list of 1000 added, four cut out. --Igel B TyMaHe (talk) 12:43, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
It seems like noone is opposing your suggestions, so please go ahead and change the list. Most of us have been bold and changed without previous discussions. And there is still lots of room for improvements of the list, and few that are willing to help, so I don't think previous discussions should be required. Boivie (talk) 15:17, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

Epic: which of 3 items?

I agree that "epic" is an important topic (under Arts), but there are 3 overlapping Wikidata items here: d:Q37484, which is the Epic poetry article in :en and de:Epos in :de; d:Q2367164, which is Epic (genre) in :en and doesn't have an article in :de; and d:Q1097273, which doesn't have an article in :en but is Epik in :de and Poësis epica in :la, where I noticed the discrepancy. Which one do we want? A. Mahoney (talk) 19:59, 7 July 2015 (UTC)
