note for problem article

Check copyright status of [[Magnetoplasma]].

Check exoplatz link.

If you mean {{space|VASIMR|VASIMR}}, it used to be a Lunarpedia article but was moved to Exoplatz because it was seen as more on-topic there. AFAIK Charles Radley wrote it from scratch off of the top of his head. Do you see a specific problem? Am I looking at the wrong article? I could't find an article for Magnetoplasma -- not even a deleted one. -- Strangelv 20:12, 20 June 2012 (UTC)
No, I mean [[Magnetoplasma]], which I have turned into a redirect to temporarily address the problem. If you go to the revision history of the redirect you will find that the version for 18 January 2012 is still accessible. It seems to be a copyright violation copying Leonard David's articles. It was posted by user:Lazarus. If Lazarus is the same as Leonard David maybe he has the right to post it here. Otherwise it should be deleted to make it unaccessible even as revision history. - Farred 01:22, 21 June 2012 (UTC)
Well, we are discussing the Magnetoplasma article on my user page instead of my talk page, but that is all right. I can move things over when we have settled something.
To find the old [[Magnetoplasma]] article you can follow the link here or follow the active Magnetoplasma redirect link above, leading to: [[VASIMR]] (redirected from [[Manetoplasma]]); then click on the link to the Magnetoplasma redirect page. From the redirect page the history is available offering the version from the 18th of January 2012 which contains considerable text attributed to "Leonard David LiveScience Senior Writer: 07 June 2005". So, have you been able to find the text of concern and do you have any ideas for checking the copyright status?
I'm still pondering this, actually. -- Strangelv 07:52, 7 July 2012 (UTC)
On another note, I have not followed a link to Exoplatz in a long time without being redirected to a virus download scam or a sex scandal page. I hope I have avoided all potentially harmful data that might have otherwise entered my computer. It seems to me that your efforts to clean up Exoplatz have not been successful. You might not be up to it and do better by abandoning Exoplatz. In any case, it seems good to me to sever any links from Lunarpedia to Exoplatz. I do not want to lure users to Lunarpedia only to have them stumble on a link to Exoplatz that gives them a virus. - Farred 20:34, 4 July 2012 (UTC)
Sorry for not noticing this earlier. The problem you're seeing is not specific to Exoplatz. Something for moer fundamental has been compromized and we're not sure what. This is why Marspedia was being reported as an attack site for about three months. Thank you for catching this before Google did. Now to fix it before Google notices.
Of the six wikis I have responsibility for, the only one I have no server level access to is LPedia.org, which is also the only one immune from the current series of PHP attacks. At some point pretty much everything in our DreamHost account that's a php file has been infected.
The source of the infection may be less clear this time. Are any of the other wikis infected at this time?

just ran a complicated shell command I found online on Exoplatz. Assuming it didn't break anything it might be something to try running on every other site on our account. Haven't found any collateral damage yet. -- Strangelv 09:13, 7 July 2012 (UTC)
