....the changes i made to the template was primarily removing plays that had not received awards. i plan to go back through to back fill the years with the correct works. --emerson7 07:53, 6 November 2008 (UTC)
what's really to discuss if the data is 1) factually incorrect 2) completely unsourced? --emerson7 07:57, 6 November 2008 (UTC)
the net you cast is far too wide. typically--and by typcially i mean in wikipaedia-- XXX-award winning play is defined as the work itself receiving the award. direction, writing, and the halve dozen other arbitrarly added for this template and since expanded by you to the category:Obie Award winning plays, are performance awards. there's no reason for the obie templates and categories to be handled any differently that the other major awards. --emerson7 18:12, 6 November 2008 (UTC)
Respected media publications such as Playbill commonly refer to these productions as quote "Obie-winning" productions, and they should be treated as such. Cirt (talk) 23:20, 6 November 2008 (UTC)
The Village Voice OBIE listings now appear here: http://www.villagevoice.com/obies/index/1975
I've looked at 1973, '74, '75 and there are serious discrepancies in terms of the award year and the listed plays.
I have no independent knowledge of these awards, so could someone who does look into this?
