Re: the Enterovirus infection studies article - The symbols used to differentiate the studies are not populating on my older Mac. They all look the same. I'm assuming others with similar devices may not be able to see them, also. Can you switch to more common symbols so the page can be appreciated by a wider audience?

Sure thing, I've just done it (I was worried that the symbols used might not appear on some older computers). Hip (talk) 12:26, 27 July 2018 (PDT)
Thank you very much! I appreciate it. Kmdenmark (talk) 15:21, 27 July 2018 (PDT)


I'm busy categorizing files according to their copyright licence. I saw your created dinner instead yourself. What licence would you like them to use? There's Creative Commons ShareAlike - the one that applies to the written content here, or public domain (anyone's can use without attributing to you), or non-commercial, no derivatives etc. What would you prefer? notjusttired (talk) 15:59, 15 October 2018 (EDT) Notjusttired

Hi Notjusttired. Are you talking about the images I created such as those on this page: non-cytolytic enterovirus? I am not really sure, what would you recommend? Generally I am happy for anyone to use any image I've made if it furthers the cause of ME/CFS understanding, research and advocacy. So a licence that makes it easy for anyone to use these images for that cause would be good. Should I be selecting a licence type when I upload images to MEpedia?

Hi. Looks like a forget to reply to you before. You can choose a license - most content here is under CC-BY-SA-3.0 so I've put your Interferon image under that. It means anyone can copy, edit, use, as long as the author or MEpedia gets credit. If you don't care about credit then you would choose a CC-zero public domain license. If images are already uploaded you can't the drop-down license box to set the license. Instead edit and add the relevant template and category under your author name:

Copyright update[new][edit source][reply]

Hi. I set the photo you took and uploaded to public domain. I recently realized that we didn't have it documented how to add copyright info to existing images, it's now here Help:ADDCOPYRIGHT and feedback would be much appreciated. Basically you edit the page of the image, and add a single template. Of course you can just put is in the relevant copyright category too. If you use Special:Upload for new files instead of uploading while editing a page then it's just a dropdown box to pick the license info. notjusttired (talk) 18:18, July 29, 2019 (EDT)

Thanks for the explanation, notjusttired — Hip (talk) 14:07, July 30, 2019 (EDT)

Canadian Consensus Criteria (CCC)[new][edit source][reply]

The CCC page looks GREAT! Thanks! It is much easier to see how to diagnose set up like this.--MEandCFS (talk) 10:26, 27 February 2019 (EST)

Thanks very much, pleased you like it. I sometimes refer new ME/CFS patients on the Phoenix Rising forum to the CCC, so I thought I would try to make an easy to read page. Hip (talk) 22:56, 1 March 2019 (EST)

Hello? -- Fireballsky (talk) 23:30, November 17, 2020 (UTC)[new][edit source][reply]

Hey, is the PR forum down?

Re: Hello? -- Hip (talk) 03:02, November 18, 2020 (UTC)[new][edit source][reply]

PR has been going down occasionally over the last few weeks due to server issues. We are hoping it's all sorted out now. Hip (talk) 03:02, November 18, 2020 (UTC)

enterovirus A genus of RNA viruses which typically enter the body through the respiratory or gastrointestinal systems and sometimes spread to the central nervous system or other parts of the body, causing neurological, cardiac, and other damage. Since the first reports of myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), enteroviruses have been suspected as a cause of ME. Enteroviruses have also been implicated as the cause of Type I diabetes, congestive heart failure, and other conditions. Enteroviruses include poliovirus, coxsackieviruses, and many others. New enteroviruses and new strains of existing enteroviruses are continuously being discovered. (Learn more:

Canadian Consensus Criteria (CCC) - A set of diagnostic criteria used to diagnose ME/CFS, developed by a group of practicing ME/CFS clinicians in 2003. The CCC is often considered to be the most complex criteria, but possibly the most accurate, with the lowest number of patients meeting the criteria. Led to the development of the International Consensus Criteria (ICC) in 2011.
