Formatting concerns[edit]

There are some formatting concerns with respect to your edits. Please take some time to figure out how Wikipedia works or ask before making major changes. Thanks. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 17:17, 12 September 2011 (UTC)

A few comments is that article typically contain a WP:LEAD that summarizes the subject matter and only the first word of a heading is capitalized.Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 17:23, 12 September 2011 (UTC)

Many thanks for the explanation[edit]

You sound like an expert on viruses and I really appreciate you joining us. My purpose is to keep this Ebola article disease rather than virus oriented. Yes true the disease is referred to as "Ebola hemorrhagic fever" and virus as Ebola virus. As an example we have an article on hepatitis B that also works on distinguishing between disease/virus issues. What has been agreed upon is the main article shall be about the disease and that if the section specifically on the virus becomes to large it shall be split off into its own article named in this case hepatitis B virus. I propose the same here. Most people are more interested in the disease aspects rather than the atomic structure say of the viral proteins. WP:MEDMOS gives an outline for article structure. Let me know if you have further questions and thanks for the note on my talk page. Cheers.Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 05:38, 13 September 2011 (UTC)

Perhaps the vaguely titled Ebola article should be moved to the full name. WhatamIdoing (talk) 17:59, 13 September 2011 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Thank you for your work on improving Wikipedia's coverage of the Ebolavirus. Though I am currently a cardiothoracic surgeon by profession, I also hold a PhD in virology, and, in fact did some research on the Mayinga ZEBOV delta-peptide. Are you actively involved in Filovirus research? Ronk01 talk 21:09, 19 September 2011 (UTC)

Quick Question[edit]

When I was doing research in the field, we used the abbreviations ZEBOV (Zaire) REBOV (Reston) SEBOV (Sudan). Of course, when I was working, CIEBOV and the Bundibugyo strain had yet to be isolated. One the articles you've written, you use abbreviations that I've never seen before. (Like SUDV) Are these new or are they a European or other system? Ronk01 talk 21:24, 19 September 2011 (UTC)
I've noticed that the link to Ebola Virus (which now apparently refers to what used to be called Ebola Zaire) redirects to the page describing the general Ebola virus disease page. Does a page specifically for the Ebola virus need to be created? I would do it myself, but I've been out of the field far too long to do any kind of taxonomic writing, especially in light of my non-knowledge of recent changes in taxonomy.

Classification section[edit]

Where is the classification section dealt with that was removed in this edit? [1] Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 09:47, 24 September 2011 (UTC)

Hope all is well[edit]

Just a couple things. 1) Please attempt to keep the structure per WP:MEDMOS 2) It is easier for others to edit if the refs are on one line rather than over many lines. Otherwise keep up the good work. Cheers --Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 12:45, 2 October 2011 (UTC)

Issues on the Ebola HF article[edit]

I was looking at the recent changes you made to the Diagnosis section of the Ebola HF article, and I noticed a few issues, namely the rather technical content of the section (remember, we're writing for a lay audience, I can understand what you've written as I'm a former specialist, but most readers probably can't). I also noticed that you included cell culture as a diagnostic option. I'mnot sure how much experience you've had with filoviruses clinically, but I can assure you that in the neither the time or resources are available in all but the smallest outbreaks (excepting initial samples sent to the CDC for serotyping). Perhaps a note of this should be made in the article? Most of the time, we just used rapid assays to diagnose filovirus HF (the available tests weren't accurate enough to differentiate ebolaviruses from marburgviruses back then (in the late 80's and early 90's) Ronk01 talk 14:11, 12 October 2011 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for June 21[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Mononegavirales, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Unnamed (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
