Category:14th-century establishments in Japan[change source]

I'm not sure why you moved that. Looking at Category:Establishments by time, the convention here for whatever reason is without the hyphen. I've been following that. -- Ricky81682 (talk) 05:06, 26 April 2018 (UTC)[reply]

I highly doubt that that's the "convention" here. Spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors are ubiquitous on this project, and it's far more likely to be a simple oversight. In any case, rest assured that (in this case) "14th-century" is correct. --Joefromrandb 05:10, 26 April 2018 (UTC)

Stephen Hawking Article Edit[change source]

Regarding your undoing of my edit on Stephen Hawking's page, I'm not sure why you reverted my spelling correction, it is spelt as 'neurone' in previous mentions in the article and I wanted to update it to match. Finnybug (talk) 16:58, 10 May 2018 (UTC)[reply]

"Neurone" is generally used in non-technical contexts, and scientific contexts use "neuron" exclusively. --Joefromrandb 15:44, 11 May 2018 (UTC)
I looked up in Penguin dictionary of biology, and the Shorter OED. Both sources give both spellings as alternatives. The editor may use either spelling, and should be consistent within an article. Macdonald-ross (talk) 16:35, 12 May 2018 (UTC)[reply]
Again, "neurone" is not used within scientific contexts. --Joefromrandb 22:27, 12 May 2018 (UTC)
