Advice, please?[edit]

Not sure whether this could/should be made into a mainspace article. Is it on-mission? Is anything missing? Onychoprion (talk) 22:57, 17 May 2017 (UTC)

Looks missional to me. I think. Anyway, I've made some changes. I'll go back through tomorrow to look for what I probably missed. Great work though. A messy death is your first warnin'. 02:42, 18 May 2017 (UTC)
Thanks! I've added a few sources where requested. Though I see you also added a circular-reasoning link. I can see the reasoning there, but I'm not sure I agree. For one, it's more advertisement, with possible appeal to authority, and for two, the truthfulness of the claim doesn't rest on the claim itself. The 1995 Cocaine Project wasn't the largest-ever study because it claimed it was the largest-ever study, but because it studied 19 countries (by contrast, the 1950 report covered 2).
