COI edit request at Probability box[edit]

A COI editor has made a request for information to be added to the Applications section of this article. The requesting editor appears to be the author of the reference they are hoping to apply to the requested addition to that section. Unfortunately, Space Trajectory Optimization Asteroid Impact Monitoring State Estimation is not independently notable (nor for that matter, are many other items in the Applications section). Thus, I was hoping someone more mathematically inclined could have a look? Thank you very much for any help on this. Regards,  Spintendo  19:59, 1 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Statistics in Serial Killer Nurse cases[edit]

The Lucy Letby trial in the UK is about a nurse who kept being present when suspicious events happened on her shifts. Or was she a bothersome person who kept complaining when she saw mistakes being made, and are the events called suspicious because she was present? This is a subject of intense controversy in the UK. There is a Wikipedia article on Lucy Letby, and there has been a lot of activity by editors on the Wikipedia article about myself, because of my own activities in the public arena calling for a retrial and arguing her innocence. On the Lucy Letby talk page I argued that editors should distinguish between "being guilty" and "being found guilty". For that reason, I will also be attacked for writing these remarks here. It will be seen as an attempt to use Wikipedia as a vehicle for campaigning. I have already been labelled by the main stream media in the UK as a nutty conspiracy theorist and some sort of terrorist, attempting to undermine the rule of law. (Deja vu: law professors in the Netherlands wrote the same thing about me during the trial of Lucia de Berk). While the trial was going on, Dutch police came to my house in the Netherlands in the night with a letter from UK police, threatening me with arrest next time I visit the UK. I don't want to enter into any discussion here, because it is clear that I do have multiple conflicts of interest. I'm just hoping that Wikipedia editors from outside the UK with interests in statistics, law, and forensic science, will start following Wikipedia developments concerning statistics and the Lucy Letby trial.

Thread that also has statistics[edit]

Hello. There is a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard#Many blocks shouldn't be indef, which has an element of statistics involved. Specifically it relates to calculation of the margin of error. If you are interested in providing input about how margin of error is calculated or the thread in general, you are welcome to join the discussion.
