a little problem about 72nd Academy Awards[edit]

Hi Birdienest81:

This is ALIEN, I have already translating some of you work into Chinese wikipedia, but I found a problem. the article 72nd Academy Awards section "Presenters (in order of appearance)" does not have the presenter infomation about the best makeup award, can you fix it? I do remember it had before, but without a listed source.

I'm Chinese, so my English is not good, hope I have express my question correctly, thank you. --Jarodalien (talk) 07:25, 30 October 2013 (UTC)

Information icon Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. Please make sure to include an edit summary with every edit. Please provide one before saving your changes to an article, as the summaries are quite helpful to people browsing an article's history. Thanks! —EncMstr (talk) 03:54, 1 November 2013 (UTC)

Block message:

I am requesting that I, Birdienest81, be lifted from block because I have made significant contributions to Wikipedia including seven featured lists. Unfortunately, the block on the IP address has prevented me from making necessary edits and addressing concerns for my Featured article candidates. I honestly have no idea why I was blocked. I always log on to my account and usually explain my edits. Even though I know I did nothing wrong, I'm sorry if I caused any disturbances.


Accept reason:

See below Elockid (Talk) 14:29, 2 November 2013 (UTC)
Unfortunately, individual IPs in a range cannot be unblocked without completely undoing the rangeblock (and admins don't levy rangeblocks lightly). That said, an admin could grant you IP-Block exemption, which would allow you to edit regardless of the rangeblock. —Jeremy v^_^v Bori! 08:05, 2 November 2013 (UTC)

IP block exempt[edit]

I have granted your account an exemption from IP blocking. This will allow you to edit through full blocks affecting your IP address when you are logged in.

Please read the page Wikipedia:IP block exemption carefully, especially the section on IP block exemption conditions.

Note in particular that you are not permitted to use this newly-granted right to edit Wikipedia via anonymous proxies, or disruptively. If you do, or there is a serious concern of abuse, then the right may be removed by any administrator.

Appropriate usage and compliance with the policy may be checked periodically, due to the nature of block exemption, and block exemption will be removed when no longer needed (for example, when the block it is related to expires).

I hope this will enhance your editing, and allow you to edit successfully and without disruption. Elockid (Talk) 14:29, 2 November 2013 (UTC)

61st Oscars[edit]

Sure. I promise that I will review the list as soon as I can. However, can you do something for me in return? At Wikipedia:Featured list candidates/Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series Writing Team/archive1, the reviewer told me to add the winners for 1981 to 1985 and nominees from 1986 to 1990, with the sources he included (depth explanation at FLC). Even though, the article is not my problem, I still care about it since I was the one who started to expand this article.  — SoapFan12 (talk, contribs) 09:23, 4 November 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for November 25[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited 66th Academy Awards, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page The Fugitive (film) (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

61st Academy Awards[edit]

How is the information you removed here already "understood", and how is the information you removed here "unfit"? Korny O'Near (talk) 17:02, 10 December 2013 (UTC)

I just looked at the information, per your talk page request, and it does seem a bit indiscriminate for a featured piece of work. Of course, I'm more of a sports editor than a celebrity editor, so the implied standards for this category may be different than what I'm used to. Giants2008 (Talk) 16:06, 15 December 2013 (UTC)

84th Academy Awards - Performers[edit]

Hi, Birdienest. Thanks for checking/revising the updates I made regarding Billy Crystal's opening numbers.

I noticed you reverted the changes I made to the 84th Academy Awards performers section due to not having a source. This is tricky because the main reason I added them in the first place is because I couldn't find any credible sources that listed out the songs that he parodied, and I thought it would be helpful to have them listed on Wikipedia. You can fact-check the listed songs, if you'd like, as they're readily available and most of them are fairly obvious and well-known selections. The best I can find for a source for the 84th is the IMDb soundtracks page, which has them listed as well: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2089826/soundtrack?ref_=tt_trv_snd

Hope that helps, thanks again. Dlh9690 (talk) 05:07, 29 January 2014 (UTC)

74th Academy Awards[edit]

I have made a review at Wikipedia:Featured list candidates/74th Academy Awards/archive1, which you have nominated. May I ask you to do a review of Wikipedia:Featured list candidates/List of Golden Martín Fierro Award winners/archive2 in return? It is also a list or award winners.

Main Page appearance[edit]

Hello! This is a note to let the main editors of the article 66th Academy Awards know that it will be appearing as the main page featured list on March 3, 2014. You can view the TFL blurb at Wikipedia:Today's featured list/March 3, 2014. If you think it is necessary to change the main date, you can request it with the featured list directors Giants2008 (talk · contribs), Crisco 1492 (talk · contribs) or SchroCat (talk · contribs), or at Wikipedia talk:Today's featured list. If the previous blurb needs tweaking, you might change it—following the instructions of the suggested formatting. If this article needs any attention or maintenance, it would be preferable if that could be done before its appearance on the Main Page so Wikipedia doesn't look bad. smile Thanks! © Tbhotch (en-2.5). 22:11, 16 February 2014 (UTC)

Congratulations. © Tbhotch (en-2.5). 22:11, 16 February 2014 (UTC)

Disruptive editing[edit]

If there's disruptive editing on a suite of articles that you are more familiar with than I am, you should probably be the one to make a report or discuss the issue with the IP. They're not going to take the concerns any more seriously if I present them. At this stage, I would just revert the edits and post your concerns on the IP's talk page. If they continue making harmful edits, then it would be time to consider reporting their behavior to ANI. Giants2008 (Talk) 15:18, 9 March 2014 (UTC)

re Disruptive editing[edit]

Hi there,

Someone using the IP adress 187.163.8.36 has been doing disruptive editing on several Oscar ceremony articles. Can you please tell the user to stop it or can you report it to an administrator or official? I would appreciate the help.

--Birdienest81 (talk) 08:39, 9 March 2014 (UTC)
I gave the user one warning. After that, you'd have to give at least another couple warnings. Then report at WP:AIV or WP:ANI. Good luck, — Cirt (talk) 19:05, 9 March 2014 (UTC)

re 2014 Oscars[edit]

Hi Cirt,

Next week I am on spring break, and I plan on doing major cleanup for 86th Academy Awards article. However, I am worried that someone will try to reverse my edits or add unnecessary and questionable content while I make the changes (given that the ceremony has only occurred a little over a week ago). I do not want to be accused of vandalism or starting an edit war. I actually plan to submit the list for featured list promotion around August 1 (roughly the time of the 66th Emmy Awards on Aug 25 when we'll see what awards it will win). Can you do a quicky glance at the list and help me with suggestions on what belongs or not and how I can prevent unpleasant edit wars. Thank you for your help in contributing to the protection of Featured list.

--Birdienest81 (talk) 20:05, 13 March 2014 (UTC)
You can request semi-protection at WP:RFPP, but you can't do it preemptively, so you'd have to wait til after there is demonstrated instability. Good luck, — Cirt (talk) 20:11, 13 March 2014 (UTC)

re Adding questionable/unsourced content to 74rh Oscars[edit]

Sorry to bother, but MasonBanks keeps adding an fact that seems to be of original research and does not have any proper source explicitly say so. The fact says this:

This was at the expense of Russell Crowe, who became the only person in history to win the Golden Globe, BAFTA, SAG Award and Critics Choice Award for Best Actor but lose the Oscar to another performance.

While it is true off the bat, there is no proper resource explaining the fact specifically. Can you please tell him to stop.

--Birdienest81 (talk) 22:30, 17 March 2014 (UTC)
If there is a question about a particular questionable source, you can post to WP:RSN. If it is an issue of a user adding unsourced info about a living person, I strongly suggest you post to WP:BLPN. Hope that's helpful, — Cirt (talk) 22:39, 17 March 2014 (UTC)

re Unclosed FLC pages[edit]

Hi Cirt,

I noticed that the 1994 Oscars FLC submission page has not been properly closed even though the list has been promoted to FL status and has been featured on the main page as TFL on March 2/3, 2014. Also the 1998 Oscars FLC submission page has not been properly closed even though it too has been promoted. And the talk page has not been updated. Where can I report this problem here on Wikipedia? Thanks.

--Birdienest81 (talk) 17:04, 31 March 2014 (UTC)
Suggest you raise this at WT:FLC. — Cirt (talk) 17:34, 31 March 2014 (UTC)

re 2014 Oscars list keep or remove[edit]

Answers: Yes. I'll defer to your editorial judgment about that one or you could post to talk pages of relevant WikiProjects with neutrally worded notices asking for more input. Yes. Hope that's helpful, — Cirt (talk) 04:10, 2 April 2014 (UTC)

Rani Mukerji filmography[edit]

Hello Birdienest. I would really appreciate it if you could post your comments at the FLC nomination for the Rani Mukerji filmography right here. The nomination already has two supports, but has failed to garner much interest since, and I would hate to see it fail due to lack of participation. Thank you. smile -- KRIMUK90  11:02, 2 April 2014 (UTC)

re Image review[edit]

Hi, Cirt

How do I do an image review? I would like to know so that I could assist in helping 1st Magritte Awards to FLC status?

Academy Award for Best Actor[edit]

Hi, Birdienest. I noticed that you reverted AldezD's removal of the table. I don't know if you saw, but I made improvements and re-added it (here). Well, then he (?) reverted it (of course). I can't revert again or it would be edit warring, but if you liked it, please revert it back (if you want to). Thanks. --Musdan77 (talk) 20:04, 6 April 2014 (UTC)

Okay, I guess you didn't like that change I made. How about this? I didn't want to make the edit and just have it reverted (again). --Musdan77 (talk) 03:08, 19 April 2014 (UTC)
