Hi, I appreciate the work you are doing to improve the article. Just wondering if the Ebola section truly needs to be tossed into the ashcan. I'm no specialist, but in all likelihood that bit of research is inspiring further research into the effects of Plasmodium on immunity.--Quisqualis (talk) 06:07, 12 February 2018 (UTC)

Hi @Quisqualis:, yes sorry I should've done more to explain myself! This is a good example of why primary sources are generally poor for encyclopedia articles. The original paper suggesting that malaria was protective for those with ebola made a big splash, generated some news headlines, and was added to the Plasmodium article (though really malaria or ebola might have been more reasonable places to add it, since it doesn't have much to do with the hundreds of parasites that make up the genus Plasmodium). Six months later, another paper came out suggesting that for patients with ebola in Sierra Leone, having malaria made them more likely to die. A third paper also came out indicating that in Guinea the same was true: malaria infections made ebola patients more likely to die. So the current picture is unclear, although the preponderance of evidence is probably leaning towards malaria infection making ebola worse.
So anyway, sorry for being long-winded; but this is why I removed the paragraph from Plasmodium. It's a great example of why we should avoid using primary sources to support bold claims in articles. Primary sources are often hot-off-the-press research that can go on to be contradicted, built upon, or validated. Until an expert has looked over the evidence and written a nice secondary review, it's probably best we be patient and just write about what is accepted. Anyway I hope that helps clarify why I rudely snipped out that paragraph. Let me know if you have questions or suggestions, I'm happy to talk about this (or anything else) more! Happy editing!

Glad you chased this down to its final conclusion. I agree about primary sources. Reminds me of a paper in the late 90s which found that shining blue light onto the skin of the posterior side of the knee joint would reset the circadian clock. Easy thesis to test, which many did, with predictable results. There apparently is no "fourth eye" behind the knee in humans.--Quisqualis (talk) 01:37, 14 February 2018 (UTC)

Proposed Deletion of Oceana Rain Stuart[edit]

Hello Ajpolino, I'm replying to your recent post on my talk page regarding the proposed deletion of the Oceana Rain Stuart page. The article has been updated with new, referenced information that substantiates a case for her notability based on the guidelines you provided. I'm hopeful that you'll agree that under the Part 4c and d guidelines, Stuart's notability is sufficiently covered. I'd also like to remove the notability template inserted in November 2017, which would likely be satisfied if the deletion proposal is satisfied. Please let me know if you agree. Thank you for your help in making this a better article. Pdtompkins (talk) 18:40, 26 February 2018 (UTC)

Can you help?[edit]

A user has copied an image from Heather O'Rourke's IMDb page - File:Heather O'Rourke.jpg and put it in her article. I have it on good authority that neither the photographer nor Getty Images want it used because of their copyright and commercial rights. Paul Benjamin Austin (talk) 09:16, 26 March 2018 (UTC)

@Paul Benjamin Austin: Looks like others got to this before I could. Sorry for being slow. Happy editing! Ajpolino (talk) 04:30, 3 April 2018 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of LabX Media Group[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on LabX Media Group requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a company, corporation or organization, but it does not credibly indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator. reddogsix (talk) 22:41, 8 April 2018 (UTC)

1994–95 Maryland Terrapins men's basketball team-From Hitmissgoodnogood[edit]

In Regard to your comment about my earlier edit, the only reference I've used as of yet is the sports ref, and my own ideas. If you feel as though any information presented lacks credibility, feel free to remove it. I tend to start articles like this, and come back to them later to put some flesh on the bones that I've set up. Going forward, I encourage you to have free reign in fact checking my contributions if they can't be supported by any cited reference or source. Thanks for your concern. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hitmissgoodnogood (talkcontribs) 21:03, 10 May 2018 (UTC)

@Hitmissgoodnogood: Thank you for the comment. I see you're a relative new-comer here, so welcome! If you run into questions or concerns as you continue to create and improve articles, feel free to ask here (although you'll likely get a quicker reply at WP:TEAHOUSE or elsewhere)! Happy editing!
