Horrible Sentence[edit]

Please, somebody who has permission to change this page, edit this retarded sentence: "The attack against the security guard got Uzomah 15 days in jail, 3 years probations and told to stay away from Seacrest." I suggest the following: "As a result of the attack against the security guard, Uzomah was sentenced to fifteen days in jail and three years probation. In addition, he was ordered to stay away from Seacrest." Raoulduke25 (talk) 18:58, 9 September 2010 (UTC)

Thank you to whomever edited the sentence. Unfortunately, now there are quotes around the sentence which make it look as if it is directly from the footnoted source. The quotation marks should be deleted. Thanks! Raoulduke25 (talk) 01:34, 10 September 2010 (UTC)

People magazine is a perfectly good source and is now quoted exactly. You have violated 3RR rule. If you revert again I shall take it to admin. Let's play nice, Ok? ;-) DocOfSoc (talk) 00:24, 21 October 2010 (UTC)

"You have violated 3RR rule." What are you talking about? I only made ONE change. How is that violating the 3RR rule? And I never said that the source was bad or claimed that People magazine cannot be quoted. The original sentence was HORRIBLE and it was not in quotes, so a re-wording is perfectly in order. The original sentence is virtually unreadable and contains poor grammar. It should be fixed and the sentence I offered is a fine suggestion. This is not about playing "nice". I have no idea what you're talking about. Raoulduke25 (talk) 01:24, 14 December 2010 (UTC)

THat was MONTHS ago. Not even an issue any more. Whatever you did meanwhile is fine. Sorry if i offended you. Let's all play nice and have a Merry Christmas. Happy Editing DocOfSoc (talk) 02:52, 14 December 2010 (UTC)

I feel compelled to comment. Below you also accused me of violating the 3RR rule, and I demonstrated that your interpretation of the facts and the policy was wrong, but you never retracted your accusation.--Bbb23 (talk) 03:05, 14 December 2010 (UTC)

Personal life[edit]

I've imposed some order in this section. First, I cleaned up the two arrests - it was too hard to follow. Then, I removed the detail on Seacrest's relationship with Hough. We don't need to report on them holding hands, being seen on a yacht, being seen "out" in Las Vegas, and having met each other's parents. This is not a tabloid. Also, language like "widely regarded as one of Hollywood's most eligible bachelors" is just more of the same, even if it's supported by one of the gossipy sources. I also removed the part about putting his house up for sale. We are not a market for advertising his home, nor is the sale notable. I left in the supposed Cowell quote, but if it should really be sourced better rather than in People's fun facts.--Bbb23 (talk) 16:01, 27 November 2010 (UTC)

Please do not revert gain,you will be in violation of #RR rule; the info you keep adding about his dating is incorrect. I TYDocOfSoc (talk) 18:46, 27 November 2010 (UTC)
I changed the dating stuff once. How can that possibly a violation of 3RR? Nor did I add any information about the dating. I removed it. While I'm at it, don't change the arrest paragraph without discussion. It was almost impossible to follow before and your changes of it since don't help.--Bbb23 (talk) 19:15, 27 November 2010 (UTC)

Please do not attempt and edit war. You put up incorrect info, reversed the chronology and yes having a knife is a second violation of the probation. Funny, no one in the several months the arrest section has been up, no one else had trouble following it. You have now grossly violated the 3RR rule, see below.

An editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether it involves the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Violations of the 3RR rule normally attract blocks of at least 24 hours. Any appearance of gaming the system by reverting a fourth time just outside the 24-hour slot is likely to be treated as a 3RR violation. apparently *again* on this page. DocOfSoc (talk) 19:32, 27 November 2010 (UTC)

"A series of consecutive saved revert edits by one user with no intervening edits by another user counts as one revert." That takes care of the first three you show. The fourth was an attempt to repair problems you introduced - you kept going back to a part of my changes in which I had link problems. I fixed them, but you put it back to before the fix. So, the fourth edit is simply fixing that. You need to stop accusing people of violating the 3RR policy. You did it above to poor Raoulduke25 (see section above) - and in looking at the history, I saw no evidence of a violation, not even close.--Bbb23 (talk) 19:58, 27 November 2010 (UTC)
Here's your third edit: 11:10, November 27, 2010 Bbb23 (talk | contribs) (31,138 bytes) (→Personal life: restored arrest paragraph to the way it was before (date of arrest is supported by source) - changes made no sense (second probation violation? - second arrest)) (undo) Violation clearer?
You did not check your facts and rewrote what were apparently perfectly good edits. The arrest paragraph was "Unclear" only to you. Have a nice day DocOfSoc (talk) 20:30, 27 November 2010 (UTC)
Nope, what you call my third edit was my second edit. The 7:36 sequence was first edit. The 11:10 was second edit. The 10:10 edit was to repair your change, not change any wording, just to repair the links. Even if you count the 10:10 edit as an edit for the purpose of the rule, that makes three, not four. You accused me of violating the rule, which would only come after a fourth edit.
You don't know what I checked, and you don't know how clear it was to anyone but you because you can only speak for yourself. What facts did I get wrong?--Bbb23 (talk) 20:36, 27 November 2010 (UTC)

I'm going to try get back to a substantive discussion. Happily, all the dating stuff I removed has been, thus far, left intact. However, Doc has added the following sentence: "On November 25, Hough joined Seacrest's family for an intimate Thanksgiving dinner." First, the word "intimate" is not mentioned in the source and is inappropriate. Second, and more important, the whole sentence is trivial and doesn't belong here. Are we going to chronicle all the events in Seacrest's and Hough's dating just because they are mentioned in the media? I don't mind notable events, like they started dating, they became engaged, they got married, they split up, but not the intervening day-to-day occurrences of a Hollywood couple. We are not a Hollywood gossip (even if true) column. At least I hope not.--Bbb23 (talk) 20:32, 27 November 2010 (UTC)

Good new is Doc has changed the sentence to conform to the source. Bad new is the sentence is still there.--Bbb23 (talk) 16:37, 28 November 2010 (UTC)

Stalking material[edit]

An editor removed the entire paragraph about the stalking because it was "tangential". I reverted and said removal of so much well-sourced material should be discussed first here. My view is it's relevant to Seacrest's personal life, but I wouldn't be opposed to shortening it.--Bbb23 (talk) 18:32, 5 February 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for opening up this section. There's a lot more important things in life to me than starting an edit war on a Ryan Seacrest entry, so I'm not going to go back and change it, since you obviously feel so strongly that this is important to the Seacrest entry. In addition to editing, I also like to read various entries, and I read the Seacrest entry for the first time in a long time. When I read this section, and saw so much information on a guy who was stalking Seacrest, it sounded to me like the guy should have his own entry. So what that it's well-documented. There are plenty of non-essential "facts" that you or I could post on Wikipedia with proper documentation. Proper, detailed documentation in and of itself is not a reason to leave something in an entry, which seems to be your position. You don't think this is tangential? Fine, leave this critical piece in the Seacrest entry. I saw the "fact" that Julianne Hough had Thanksgiving with Seacrest's family this year. Documented and everything. I left it in, but I thought, "Is this really encyclopedic information?" Asc85 (talk) 20:49, 5 February 2011 (UTC)
I wouldn't say I feel "strongly" about it. I said I thought it was "relevant", and I think its relevance is more than tangential. At the same time, I see your point and suggested shortening it. Before doing that, I'd like to see if anyone else has anything to say.
As for the Thanksgiving fact, I agree with you; feel free to remove it. It's trivial, and I argued for its removal a while back. See my post above dated November 27, 2010. Unfortunately, I met incredible resistance from another editor, and I didn't, at the time, feel I got enough support to remove it.--Bbb23 (talk) 21:00, 5 February 2011 (UTC)

Edited as per above discussion. Better? Namaste...DocOfSoc (talk) 22:05, 5 February 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for taking out the Thanksgiving bit. The stalking paragraph is a little shorter, which is better, but not much. The only thing I can think of to remove would be the history (previous attack). I wouldn't want to remove the Seacrest quote because it says something about Seacrest's reaction, as opposed to recounting more about the stalker.--Bbb23 (talk) 22:26, 5 February 2011 (UTC)
YW Bob, sorry I was snarky previously. RL issues :-( The previous attack is the reason for Ryan's reaction and generated the maximum sentence 2nd time. I will try to condense. Namaste DocOfSoc (talk) 22:39, 5 February 2011 (UTC)
Didn't realize that this Seacrest entry had such responsive and dedicated editors for it! I say that not to be patronizing. Awhile ago on the Van Morrison entry, I discovered this happens for certain people. That person's nuts...DocOfSoc and Bbb23 seem eminently more reasonable. I don't know if either has a connection to Seacrest, but even if that's the case, I suppose that doesn't matter, as long as the entry stays accurate.Asc85 (talk) 23:34, 5 February 2011 (UTC)
Thanks Asc! Good Job Bob! It rhymes ;-) DocOfSoc (talk) 23:36, 5 February 2011 (UTC)

Please update the paragraph to be more neutral with the paragraph "Since its launch in 2006, RSP has become an Emmy-winning television production company creating unscripted, scripted and digital programming. RSP produces the E! hit series "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" and spin-off "Kourtney and Kim Take Miami," and has produced "Married to Jonas" and "The Wanted Life" for the network. RSP currently produces "Shahs of Sunset" on Bravo, " "How I Rock It" for Esquire,” and “Webheads,” for Nickelodeon. RSP is producing “Shades of Blue,” starring Jennifer Lopez at NBC, and also produces "Mixology," a comedy series for ABC. The company produced the Emmy Award-winning reality series "Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution." (Cite: IMDB: https://pro-labs.imdb.com/name/nm0780435/ )

Can we update "In April 2012, Seacrest signed a deal with NBCUniversal expanding his on-air role beyond E! to NBC. He is expected to contribute to the Today Show, Olympics coverage, entertainment programming, as well as news and other special events." to be in the past tense, since the Olympics already happened. Please change the sentence to "In April 2012, Seacrest signed a deal with NBCUniversal expanding his on-air role beyond E! to NBC. He has hosting and producing duties for entertainment and sports, and works with the Today Show, NBC Sports for Olympics coverage, and entertainment programming at E!."

Ryan Seacrest[edit]

Please change "He hosts American Idol, a talent competition, and also On Air with Ryan Seacrest, a popular morning radio show on KIIS-FM.[1][2][3]" to "He hosts the top-rated primetime talent showcase American Idol, a talent competition. On radio, Seacrest is host of "On Air with Ryan Seacrest," his market-topping #1 nationally syndicated LA morning drive-time show for Clear Channel's 102.7 KIIS-FM, as well as a nationally-syndicated Top 40 radio show.[1][2][3]" citing the Los Angeles Times: http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/news/la-et-arbitrons-20121128,0,4622170.story and TV Guide: http://www.tvguide.com/News/2010-11-Ratings-1033838.aspx
