Requested move of Temporal muscle to Temporalis muscle[edit]

Hi everyone! I've opened a discussion about moving Temporal muscle to Temporalis muscle. This is based on the use of the term in scientific literature, but I wanted to get more opinions as the redirects Temporalis muscle and Temporalis are not used enormously (around 15% of all page views of Temporal muscle). The discussion can be found at: Talk:Temporal muscle#Requested move 27 September 2021. Thanks! Bibeyjj (talk) 16:52, 27 September 2021 (UTC)


Some article titles have been proposed to be moved to better standardise our muscle titles:

Please contribute and / or watch Wikipedia:WikiProject Anatomy/Article alerts if you'd like to see if there are any future move proposals. Tom (LT) (talk) 07:40, 28 October 2021 (UTC)

This may also give us the opportunity to clarify how muscle articles should be named in WP:MEDMOS. I've started a discussion at Wikipedia talk:Manual of Style/Medicine-related articles#Article Naming - Muscles to explore this. Thanks! Bibeyjj (talk) 12:02, 28 October 2021 (UTC)

how to get a skull image for use on WP[edit]

Hi, how do I get hold of an image of the skull that I can modify and use in an article? I need a posterolateral view of the skull. I had a look on commons and there are lots of images but they all have been modified in some way with things marked in red, etc. I need a "plain" one, so I can mark my own stuff. If you open many of those images, it says they were created with Anatomography. I then spent more than an hour trying to get Anatomography to achieve the simple task of showing me a skull, and didn't get anywhere. So... how do I get hold of a posterolateral view of the skull I can use? Thanks! Dr. Vogel (talk) 13:55, 6 November 2021 (UTC)

H DrVogel - try searching wikipedia commons for a base image ([[1]]). Tom (LT) (talk) 05:23, 10 November 2021 (UTC)
@Tom (LT): Hi, thanks for answering. That's one of the first things I did, but I didn't find exactly what I needed. Something like this one but without the stuff marked in red would be ideal. I wasn't able to find a "base" version of anything like this. Dr. Vogel (talk) 22:13, 10 November 2021 (UTC)
You could try asking at Wikipedia:Graphics Lab/Illustration workshop - I've found the editors there very helpful. Tom (LT) (talk) 22:48, 10 November 2021 (UTC)
