- Should the `PiHKAL / TiHKAL` links be removed from ==External links== from all chemical pages? They have been removed from https://psychonautwiki.org/wiki/Template:Substance_Breakdown#External_links
- "Substance dependence" is a better construct than "drug addiction" -- it's more objective. Should we https://psychonautwiki.org/wiki/Template:Substance_Breakdown#Tolerance_and_addiction_potential be changed to https://psychonautwiki.org/wiki/Template:Substance_Breakdown#Tolerance_and_dependence_potential (as in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barbiturate#Tolerance_and_dependence for example). Substance dependence is used in ICD codes (example, barbiturate dependence).
- Add `Addiction vs depencence` to https://psychonautwiki.org/wiki/Content_Style_Guide_-_Substance#Grammatics ?
Should the property `Effect::Ego inflation` be added to:
- Josikins added dissociatives to https://psychonautwiki.org/wiki/Ego_inflation ("However, it may also occur under the influence of other compounds such as alcohol and dissociatives.") after I discussed it with her at https://psychonautwiki.org/wiki/Talk:Ego_inflation. Can I add Effect::Ego inflation to https://psychonautwiki.org/wiki/DXM, and https://psychonautwiki.org/wiki/Ketamine?
- All substances in https://psychonautwiki.org/wiki/Category:Arylcyclohexylamine ?
- All substances in https://psychonautwiki.org/wiki/Category:Alcohol (2M2B for the moment) ?

- Remove "Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor"?
"2C-P is known to have a steep dose-response curve, with a very small margin separating a manageable dose and an overdose." - https://www.erowid.org/chemicals/2cp/2cp_dose.shtml
"There was one report of an experience in which a single dosage of 16 mg was clearly an overdose, with the entire experiment labeled a physical disaster, not to be repeated. A consistent observation is that there may not be too much latitude in dosage between that which would be modest, or adequate, and that which would be excessive. The need for individual titration would be most important with this compound." - PiHKAL, https://isomerdesign.com/PiHKAL/read.php?id=36
“Now I would advise anyone who wants to use MDMA not to take it more than 4 times a year if you want to continue to get the best effects from it, otherwise you risk losing its effects entirely and permanently.” - Ann Shulgin
https://psychonautwiki.org/wiki/Talk:Cannabidiol#Legal_status CBD does not appear to have any psychoactive ("high") effects such as those caused by ∆9-THC in marijuana, but may have anti-anxiety and anti-psychotic effects. As the legal landscape and understanding about the differences in medical cannabinoids unfolds, it will be increasingly important to distinguish "medical marijuana" (with noted varying degrees of psychotropic effects and deficits in executive function) – from "medical CBD".

Most pure chemicals are white to off-white so there is no way to distinguish between them by eye. Discoloration is often due to an impurity. The chemicals can still be contaminated with other white chemicals though.
- 25B-NBOMe is not listed in PiHKAL (https://erowid.org/library/books_online/pihkal/pihkal.shtml). Should it be "(PiHKAL / Isomer Design)" or "(Isomer Design)" in the link "25B-NBOMe (PiHKAL / Isomer Design)" listed at https://psychonautwiki.org/wiki/25B-NBOMe#External_links ?
- Should it be "/TiHKAL/" or "/PiHKAL/"in the link "4-HO-MET (TiHKAL / Isomer Design)" listed at https://psychonautwiki.org/wiki/4-HO-MET#External_links ? 4-HO-MET is listed in TiHKAL (https://erowid.org/library/books_online/tihkal/tihkal21.shtml) but http://isomerdesign.com/TiHKAL/read.php?id=21&domain=tk redirect to http://isomerdesign.com/PiHKAL/read.php?id=21&domain=tk
Operator - Kenan
- I suggest that we rename the gift "DMT Entity" to "Changa". What do you think?
- Can I merge the links from https://psychonautwiki.org/wiki/Comparison_of_darknet_markets#Further_reading to https://psychonautwiki.org/wiki/Network under section "Tor hidden services"?
Site content - Clarity
From http://www.minddisorders.com/Flu-Inv/Hallucinations.html Hallucinations are categorized according to which sensory modality is involved and, in addition, are categorized as either mood-congruent or mood-incongruent. The types of hallucinations are:
- Auditory: ...
- Gustatory: ...
- Olfactory hallucination: ...
- Somatic/tactile hallucination: ...
- Visual hallucination: ...
- Mood-congruent hallucination: Any hallucination whose content is consistent with either the depressive or manic state the person may be in at the time. Depressive themes include guilt, death, disease, personal inadequacy, and deserved punishment. Manic themes include inflated self-worth, power, knowledge, skills, and identity and a special relationship with a famous person or deity. For example, a depressed person may hear voices saying that he or she is a horrible person, whereas a manic person may hear voices saying that he or she is an incredibly important person.
- Mood-incongruent hallucination: Any hallucination whose content is not consistent with either the depressed or manic state the person is in at the time, or is mood-neutral. For example, a depressed person may experience hallucinations without any themes of guilt, death, disease, personal inadequacy, or deserved punishment. Similarly, a manic person may experience hallucinations without any themes of inflated self-worth, power, knowledge, skills, or identity or a special relationship to a famous person or deity.
- @Clarity: Do you think we should start the page(s) Mood-congruent hallucination / Mood-incongruent hallucination? By the way, the terms mood-congruent hallucination and mood-incongruent hallucination are synonymous with mood-congruent delusion and mood-incongruent delusion respectively, but the latter terms are not included in the critera above. --David Hedlund (talk) 21:49, 8 December 2017 (CET)
- @David Hedlund: I could not find any reference of "mood congruent hallucination" with respect to psychoactive substance use. A Google search turned up this: "The term mood-congruent hallucination is used primarily in the context of the descriptive pathology of mood disorders". If this is the case, it is outside of the site's scope, as we don't document the features or symptoms of (organic) psychiatric disorders. --Clarity (talk) 04:08, 9 December 2017 (CET)
- @Clarity: I found this:
- Mood-congruent hallucination - http://hallucinations.enacademic.com/1188/mood-congruent_hallucination
- Mood-incongruent hallucination - http://hallucinations.enacademic.com/1189/mood-incongruent_hallucination
Singular page titles
Can I rename the titles to their singular form for these pages (I will update the content in the pages that links to them)?:
- Auditory hallucinations
- External hallucinations
- Form constants
- Gustatory hallucinations
- Hallucinatory states
- Internal hallucinations
- Olfactory hallucinations
- Tactile hallucinations
Chemistry - BronzeManul
- Kenan trust your chemical knowledge, can you please mention that you. https://psychonautwiki.org/wiki/PsychonautWiki says "Bronzemaul.png BronzeManul (Benjamin): This user is our volunteer for contributing a variety of minor edits, minor edits and more minor edits. They have a large amount of experience and knowledge within this field." Can you please ask Kenan to add that something about your knowledge in chemistry, so people know that they can ask you in the channel? Example: "This user is our volunteer for contributing a variety of content and articles regarding chemistry..."
- Chlordiazepoxide, and Flunitrazepam is mentioned at Benzodiazepine but they are not added under Benzodiazepine#Chemical_classes
Botanical and mycological - White
Subjective effect index (SEI) - Josikins
- Talk:List of substances used in ritual context: Rename Talk:List of substances used in ritual context to Talk:Nonentheogen
- User talk:David Hedlund/Pharmaceutical
- Should we add a new section Neurotransmitters in List/substances? I think at least Adrenaline should be added because it is psychoactive and used as pharmaceutical.
