Reply on Video Game Addiction[edit]

Hello. I replied to your revert of my edit on Video Game Addiction. I would very much like to hear your further thoughts on the matter, before I continue editing. — Preceding unsigned comment added by NisJørgensen (talkcontribs) 13:40, 24 August 2017 (UTC)


What is MEDRS? I went to the page you linked but it just talked about good and bad resources. If you're saying that my source is not good, it's a peer-reviewed journal. Is that not a reliable source? 5thMDSS (talk) 15:49, 15 October 2017 (UTC)

Hi 5thMDSS Basically, we try to avoid citing primary sources in favor of secondary or tertiary sources such as review articles, meta-analyses, and textbooks. This helps us ensure the medical information in Wikipedia contains WP:ACCEPTEDKNOWLEDGE rather than bleeding edge research (which can be of variable quality). The reference here Is there addiction to loud music? Findings in a group of non-professional pop/rock musicians appears to be a primary source. You might see if there are any review articles that cite this source and, if they support the finding, cite them instead. WP:WHYMEDRS and WP:BIOMED may be helpful for you.

Pubmed seems to have marked that article as a review, though to me it looks like a primary source. Pubmed sometimes gets its classifications wrong. I would post on the article talk page about this source to obtain wider input. Sizeofint (talk) 19:56, 16 October 2017 (UTC)

MDMA Flipping[edit]

"We need a reliable source to expand on this? Do you know of any decent ones? " -

Yes, have a look on — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jilja (talkcontribs)

Hi Jilja, citing one or several those for the flipping terms would be fine I think. My larger concern was the information about flipping with MAOIs. This needs a WP:MEDRS reference I think. Sizeofint (talk) 19:23, 16 October 2017 (UTC)
We have no references at all for the moment ( I'm not sure what to cite, can you do it for me? Also, you never flip with MAOIs, my intention was to warn that MAOIs is contraindicates with MDMA. --Jilja (talk) 05:12, 17 October 2017 (UTC)
Candy flipping: "The experience of combining the drugs LSD and MDMA." Your edit make is sound like candy-flipping is a general term. --Jilja (talk) 12:41, 24 October 2017 (UTC)
Jilja, this is true and I also disagree with the authors' definition, but in a short amount of time it was the best I found. We can replace it if we find a better source. Sizeofint (talk) 18:41, 24 October 2017 (UTC)
