James, while I cannot speak openly because of my WMF staff position, I will say that I still, and as much as ever, have the utmost confidence, respect, faith, admiration, and trust for you. We're lucky to have you back, even as "just" a community member. I can't wait to continue working with you on improving medical content around the world in many underserved languages. Your outreach to the World Health Organization, National Institutes of Health, Cochrane Collaboration, and so many others is invaluable to our movement. You are simply the most prolific medical editor in the world (by edits and pageviews), and an enormous asset to our projects. Be well and enjoy your transition back into the community. I hope you find freedom in it, and a renewed sense of drive and passion. Best, Jake Ocaasi t | c 21:10, 30 December 2015 (UTC)
- Thanks User:Ocaasi. Your words of support mean a great deal to me.
- I am honored to work with this community of amazing people. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 00:18, 31 December 2015 (UTC)
- Agreed. Recently, I said I appreciate your contributions and I meant it. (though I was accused of trolling for doing so via a template for a very minor issue - an uninformative edit summary - and threatened for defending myself.) And again, kudos and thanks for an exemplary response here. Definitely should inspire confidence of others in your commitment to transparency - it shows that when the spotlight was on you regarding transparency, you didn't just talk the talk, you walked the walk. --Elvey(t•c) 22:17, 11 January 2016 (UTC)

As part of my job I had reason to google (.co.uk) 'working age dementia' today and noticed the lack of any wikipedia results/sidebars which I found surprising. Likewise for early onset dementia. Turns out both do not exist (even in redirect form) that I can see on wikipedia, any ideas about where to direct them to? I'm not sure a redirect to Alzheimers is entirely appropriate but it is the closest option. Only in death does duty end (talk) 10:50, 26 January 2016 (UTC)
- I would redirect to Early-onset Alzheimer's disease And thanks User:Only in death for pointing this out :-) Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 10:53, 26 January 2016 (UTC)
- I was just about to do so but noticed you got there first, quick work!. I am putting this down to the UK being less squeamish (or 'PC') about using the term 'dementia' in general discussion rather than the more specific medical terms. Certainly my (deceased) grandfather's doc had no issues with describing his dementia as such rather than using Azheimers. I was just surprised for both terms on google nothing showed up at wikipedia, which is an unusual enough occurance for medical terms I felt it needed mentioning. Cheers again.

Hi, I'm not sure that I agree with your edit on the Herpes simplex Labialis page, so I opened a discussion here: Talk:Herpes_labialis#Lysine_effectiveness.

Hello, I feel it appropriate to shamelessly plug the above new article on a very important, yet unbelievably underrated, physician who has certainly helped me and my tummy woes over the years. I say "appropriate" as I see you are a man of the scrubs, and feel this would be right up your street. Best regards, CassiantoTalk 19:39, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

This sniping is getting hard to bear. At least he reverted. As to whether this turns out to be a non-issue, I had to look up TARDIS to see what that was. Seems like an issue to me. I still support you and would vote for you again. Can't say that about everyone that I voted for. Wbm1058 (talk) 00:41, 1 February 2016 (UTC)

Quick question, what does DBE stand for? (as used in your plantar fasciitis edit) - I enjoy sandwiches (talk) 07:04, 31 January 2016 (UTC)
- User talk:I enjoy sandwiches were do you see DBE? Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 07:14, 31 January 2016 (UTC)
- Oh nevermind, it was a typo, you were writing "should be"(in the edit summaries). I thought it was wikipedia shorthand of which I was unaware. To which source were you referring? I enjoy sandwiches (talk) 08:15, 31 January 2016 (UTC)
- By way of explanation, in the edit summaries of the plantar fasciitis page, you made a number of edits and rearrangements with the summary statement 'we should be using secondary sources'. I assume you were describing an unreferenced statement in the article, but I was not sure to which you were referring. I enjoy sandwiches (talk) 10:03, 3 February 2016 (UTC)

Hello. I notice there is a (semi-)open FAR at Talk:Keratoconus that was never transcluded at WP:FAR. Did you still want to list this article? If not, perhaps you could delete it under criterion G7? Otherwise, it might create archiving/bot problems later. Thanks. DrKay (talk) 15:13, 31 January 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing out my errors on the Vitamin wiki. I just did a Google search and this article popped up. It was not malicious. Thanks for the link for reliable sources. So, if I understand it blog posts are typically not an acceptable source.
Rburg-tcs (talk) 15:21, 2 February 2016 (UTC)
- Hey and welcome Rburg-tcs. I'm just a friendly talk-page watcher and want to point you to an excellent guide: WP:MEDRS is very much worth reading; it explains the entire hierarchy of reliable medical sources. I learned a ton from it, and it's a standard 'reference point' for our discussions about medical sources. Best, Jake Ocaasi (WMF) (talk) 17:21, 2 February 2016 (UTC)
Thank you for the note on my Talk page. Coincidentally, I was actually in the process of drafting these comments on your Talk page when I received that.
- I find one of your changes from "oral" to "by mouth" a bit awkward – the sentence that says "The by mouth form comes in short acting and long acting formulations."
- I invite you to check the desirability of my edit on a different aspect. If you think it is not appropriate, feel free to revert it.

Your thoughts, please?
Doc, if it's okay with you, I moved this discussion to the proper venue to avoid inundating your TP. If it's not ok, I will be happy to self-revert. Atsme📞📧 17:53, 6 February 2016 (UTC)

Repeatedly adding back unsourced material to Schistosomiasis
Please stop adding unsourced content, as you did to Schistosomiasis. This contravenes Wikipedia's policy on verifiability. If you continue to do so, you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia. You have done this repeatedly, despite knowing better, and then have been canvassing others to back up this intentional disregard of the Wikipedia sourcing pillar. Please stop the disruption. 22.214.171.124 (talk) 23:13, 5 February 2016 (UTC)
