Evans Quinn[edit]

Hi Bilorv. Thanks for reviewing my Evans Quinn article. You've placed a POV tag on the page but not noted on the talk page what the dispute is. Could you please elaborate (here, there, my talk page, wherever!) and I'll try and address the problem. Regards danno_uk 21:20, 10 January 2014 (UTC)

To be honest, I've not got a clue. I remember looking at the page but certainly don't remember making any changes - much less placing a POV tag on a perfectly neutral article. I was using Special:NewPagesFeed for the first time so it's possible I was testing/looking at something and misclicked or meant to click "cancel" but didn't. I've removed the tag. Sorry for any confusion. Bilorv (talk) 22:10, 10 January 2014 (UTC)
No worries, I'm sure many are the times that I've been patrolling Recent Changes, hit the wrong button on Twinkle and warned people about all sorts of infractions that they're clearly not guilty of! Thanks for the prompt response, much appreciated. danno_uk 22:43, 10 January 2014 (UTC)

Overlinking[edit]

Your plot synopses are generally good, but you're linking too many words unnecessarily. For example, common English words don't need to linked. Cat, dog, boat, food: we all know what these words mean. Existentialism, iconoclasm, dichotomy, superconductor: these are rather rare or complex words that might need to be linked. It's not a big deal, but a large number of linked words can distract readers and leave them confused as to what the key concepts are. NinjaRobotPirate (talk) 00:05, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

Okay, right. These are some links from the plot synopsis I wrote for "The Hawking Excitation".

Email, Engineer, Higgs boson particle, Halloween, Card tricks, Belt buckles, Uniform fetishism (linked from "French maid costume"), Shopping

The words "email" and "engineer" might be a bit too much, but you also removed links from "card tricks", "belt buckles", "uniform fetishism". You also left some links there, like "Halloween" and "shopping". I have briefly looked at WP:OVERLINK before, but my problem is where to draw the line. I would have thought that if "belt buckles" was removed, "shopping" and "Halloween" would have been too. Does "Higgs boson particle" deserve a link any more than "card tricks" does, especially if neither is essential to understanding the plot? I agree that I put too many links in there, but am not quite sure why some specific examples should/shouldn't be included. Bilorv (talk) 09:22, 17 April 2014 (UTC)
Card tricks and belt buckles are too common. I left shopping? That was an error on my part, then. Thanks for spotting that. Halloween could be useful for non-American readers, who might not understand the American holiday. I'm pretty sure that card tricks exist in the whole world, however. Complex physics concepts certainly should be linked, and, if understanding is necessary, they should also be briefly explained. Here, it's not terribly important what it is, because it's a stand-in for "complicated scientific theory", and it could have been any complex-sounding theory. Descriptions of such MacGuffins would be undue. I agree that it's confusing at first, and it's very tempting to link indiscriminately. You can get a lot of practice and help from Tony1's tutorials on his user page. NinjaRobotPirate (talk) 23:34, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

Heroes of Olympus[edit]

Sorry, I was on my phone so it is incredibly hard to mention things. I removed it due to a lack of sources which you added in when you reinserted the section, so thanks and sorry for not putting an explanation on the page itself--Ditto51 (My Talk Page) 07:01, 20 May 2014 (UTC)

Okay, thanks for clearing that up. Bilorv (talk) 07:04, 20 May 2014 (UTC)

List of The Big Bang Theory characters[edit]

Thanks for your edit at List of The Big Bang Theory characters. I fear we have a fan trying to insert herself into the article. She left a link to a facebook page at Talk:The Big Bang Theory a few days ago,[1] and the reply that she left on her talk page was rather ... illuminating.[2] --AussieLegend () 18:54, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

Your GA nomination of The Stag Convergence[edit]

Hi there, I'm pleased to inform you that I've begun reviewing the article The Stag Convergence you nominated for GA-status according to the criteria. Time2wait.svg This process may take up to 14 days. Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments you might have during this period. 23W 17:00, 30 August 2014 (UTC)

The Irish Mother[edit]

Her surname is "McConnell" an Irish surname, so therefore the character is of Irish descent. many fictional characters with Irish names are placed in the category:Fictional American people of Irish descent, sometimes just based on the names, it doesn't have to be referenced on the show, but the Aldrin character is in the category:Fictional American people of Swedish descent so go tell the person who put them in the category off, instead of me, I'm only helping people understand the portrayals of fictional Irish Americans in television. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 90.202.12.58 (talk) 15:05, 8 September 2014 (UTC)

@90.202.12.58: It sounds like original research to me. I would think that it should have to be referenced on the show; do you have any policies or links which say you can judge their descent by their name alone? BTW, there's no need to get defensive - I merely didn't understand your reasoning. Also, you made the edit, so if I was trying to "tell [anyone] off", it would be you, rather than "the person who put them in the category" you seem to be trying to shift blame to.
