Resident Evil - Umbrella Chronicles
Tara has confirmed on her official website that she plays the role of Red Queen. She does not play Jill Valentine in Umbrella Chronicles, she played Jill in a Japanese-only arcade/casino game. I'm getting sick of reverting this information. Source: http://www.taraplatt.com/wst_page3.html Parjay 19:40, 2 July 2007 (UTC)
- Done added refs.
She also appears in Snapple's "better stuff" commercial. After the guy brings out the box with the better stuff, she turns towards the camera and says "I love that stuff!" I just thought that was important and that it could be included in the article somewhere. I'm not sure if this could really be included, but in her twitter updates, she says that she is indeed the one that says it: http://www.thirdstone.net/access/taraplatt/?p=93. Use that info how you see fit. -- Interrupt_feed (talk) 00:55, 3 May 2009 (UTC)
All right. There was an issue where the filmography section was blanked, but I had to restore it and add sources and resolved the situation. All unsourced or poorly sourced material is being sourced per the policies on verifiability.
- Yes, I removed the filmography because it was (a) totally unreferenced and (b) in list format. I am completely mystified by the restoration of unreferenced material to this article by Sjones23. Do we have some guideline somewhere that WP:V does not apply to anime voice-over actors? That FilmandTVFan28 thinks that "Her filmography is correct" and doesn't "want to have anymore problems again" is completely irrelevant here. Wikipedia is based on reliable sources, not the assurances of one editor. Similar considerations apply at Steve Staley, Wendee Lee, Cristina Valenzuela, Courtenay Taylor, Karen Strassman and Mary Elizabeth McGlynn, where in each case either Sjones23, FilmandTVFan28 or AngusWOOF has added massive amounts of completely unreferenced material to the article. Can anyone explain to me why those editors think unsourced material is acceptable here, because I'm having trouble understanding that? Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 10:27, 27 November 2013 (UTC)
- I'm very afraid that you're making this a bit worse. Can you please calm down and focus on content? Also, please do not insult or make assumptions about any editor including myself. I had to restore the filmography and readd it with sources. The article was already a mess without it. It was never my intention to hurt or upset anyone. The filmography section is an essential part of any actor's biography (even if it is a voice actor/actress) as it can be easily verified by simply watching the shows or either press releases, official cast announcements, reliable sources like ANN or resumes. In this case. I am applying WP:V here and am trying to get others involved in a discussion and I don't want my efforts, nor the efforts of FilmandTVFan28 or AngusWOOF, compounded. No ownership is intended. There are a couple of GAs on actors have filmographies that have little to no references (for example, please see the filmography section on Shia LaBeouf, which has no references as it can be verified in the credits). In the meantime, please refrain from removing her filmography until I try to get other users involved. Lord Sjones23 (talk - contributions) 11:42, 27 November 2013 (UTC)
- I would like to add that the assumption that restoring the filmography = adding massive amounts of unreferenced material is incorrect. Just look at the history and you'll see plenty of editors who added to the filmography. It's fair to tag the articles as BLP sources or BLP unsourced. The material that is not contentious should stay. -AngusWOOF (talk) 18:02, 27 November 2013 (UTC)
This is not the subjects website. If anyone cares to find her agency, they should have no problem finding it by visiting her website. Including it seems a bit promotional IMO. However, I ain't perfect, so I'd like to hear opposing views.Two kinds of pork (talk) 02:02, 28 November 2013 (UTC)
- Per template:infobox person, agent = The subject's agent (individual and/or agency), if relevant. I agree that the infobox doesn't need to externally link to the agent's website, just list it and link if the agent company is notable (has a wikipedia article). -AngusWOOF (talk) 02:09, 28 November 2013 (UTC)
