Casey Swint[edit]

Hi, Clarityfiend, I noticed your revert, just wanted to inform you Muckraker mentions Casey Swint (1904–1999) as the weekly editor of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, wrote Keys to the City (non-fiction book about influence of political bosses on Atlanta politics). Early Civil Rights advocate. Lotje (talk) 12:26, 4 January 2014 (UTC)

That's not enough for either Swint or the book. Has the book been noticed/reviewed by WP:reliable sources? Has it won any significant awards? I suggest you read Wikipedia:Notability (books) and WP:BIO. Clarityfiend (talk) 12:58, 4 January 2014 (UTC)
Thank you for your time. Lotje (talk) 13:16, 4 January 2014 (UTC)

Men of the Fighting Lady[edit]

The Beginning or the End[edit]

Caught this one on TCM, see what you can do. FWiW Bzuk (talk) 23:14, 20 January 2014 (UTC)

So the film also bombed at the box office. Clarityfiend (talk) 04:55, 21 January 2014 (UTC)
Cute, yet surprisingly, from comments and reviews I have read, the film made an impact with some viewers. Likely, since it was the first film to describe the secretive Manhattan Project, it was a bit of a novelty item. FWiW Bzuk (talk) 13:29, 21 January 2014 (UTC)

Rock name[edit]

Clarityfiend, why did you move all the Rock nicknames out of the Rock (name) page to the Rock (disambiguation) page? Ego White Tray (talk) 01:46, 31 January 2014 (UTC)

On a closely related note, do we really need separate pages for ROCK and rock? Ego White Tray (talk) 01:55, 31 January 2014 (UTC)
IMO, name pages are for formal names only. The nicknames could go into Rock (nickname) I suppose. I've been creating nickname pages (e.g. Skippy (nickname)). As for ROCK, I considered merging it, but I thought the main page was a bit too long already. Clarityfiend (talk) 02:35, 31 January 2014 (UTC)
Well your opinion is wrong :) Doing this is very hostile to our readers. The title of the page isn't Rock (actual name) but Rock (name) which means that our readers expect to see nicknames on that page. Just watch as users constantly add Dwayne Johnson and other nicknamed people to Rock (name), if it remains as you did it. Is there any good reasons to exclude nicknames from such pages? I can't think of any. Ego White Tray (talk) 03:46, 31 January 2014 (UTC)
Then explain to me why the template states "This page or section lists people that share the same given name or the same family name." I don't see nickname listed there. Clarityfiend (talk) 03:54, 31 January 2014 (UTC)
I don't consider boilerplate template text a good reason for anything - The template isn't written as instructions to the editor, but instead a guide to reader's as to the purpose of the page. Do you know of consensus or instruction that nickname explicitly should be excluded from such pages? Ego White Tray (talk) 05:33, 31 January 2014 (UTC)
I brought this up at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Anthroponymy so we can get some folks smarter than us to weigh in on this. Ego White Tray (talk) 05:38, 31 January 2014 (UTC)

Whoa[edit]

But if you've got Category:American crime films or Category:American comedy films, or whatever, then why do you need Category:American films (general category)? Isn't the general category superseded by the more specific ones? Quis separabit? 04:12, 15 March 2014 (UTC)

It depends on the category. Some are inclusive, some aren't. This one is. Clarityfiend (talk) 05:10, 15 March 2014 (UTC)

Etienne Girardot[edit]

Hi Clarityfiend, Reading through the article you started, I see that you noted he was of Anglo-French parentage. I'm busy with an article on his father who was a well-known portrait painter in London, and find little material about him on the web. Could you share your sources with me? cheers Paul venter (talk) 12:06, 18 March 2014 (UTC)

Can't recall exactly, but probably from AllMovie. It wouldn't surprise me if it were wrong - AllMovie isn't the most reliable. Clarityfiend (talk) 23:43, 18 March 2014 (UTC)

"Columbia" revert[edit]

Clarityfiend,

I know you were acting in good faith with the "Columbia Lions" revert, but you may not have realized a couple of things about US college (university) sports:

  1. US sports media—both national and local—generally describe a school's athletic program with the bare school name, leaving out "University (of)", "College", or any other such term indicating the type of school. So, for example, "Columbia" is understood to mean a team representing Columbia University. (There are a few exceptions to that rule, but we won't go into them here.)
  2. IMHO, Lion (disambiguation) isn't a proper place for "Columbia Lions". First, there are at least two dozen colleges and universities in the US and Canada that use "Lions" as a nickname—and that doesn't count variants such as "Nittany Lions" (Penn State, although that's actually referring to cougars), "Golden Lions" (Arkansas–Pine Bluff), "Mountain Lions" (a couple of smaller schools, also referring to cougars), and "Red Lions" (one small school). In other words: it would take up a lot of unnecessary space. Second, I figure that someone looking for a college sports team and knowing only the school name is FAR more likely to look in one of two places: the school article, or the dab page for the short school name.

Just wanted to enlighten you on this subject. — Dale Arnett (talk) 05:27, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

Yes, lots of teams are named "Lions". That's what a dab page is for. On the other hand, when you say Columbia, do you automatically think of the sports team? No. If we did that, the page would be endless, with Columbia this and Columbia that. That's what WP:PTM rules out. Clarityfiend (talk) 05:30, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

A little bird (my intuition) told me you could review articles for GA status? can you? Jonas Vinther (talk) 20:51, 6 April 2014 (UTC)

It's not something I've done before, though I suppose I'm experienced enough to do it. Clarityfiend (talk) 20:57, 6 April 2014 (UTC)
Well, do you know how to do it? Jonas Vinther (talk) 21:46, 6 April 2014 (UTC)
You just have to follow WP:GACR, for which you need some familiarity with the topic (for point #3). You haven't specified the latter. Clarityfiend (talk) 01:46, 7 April 2014 (UTC)

Ahh, I see. Jonas Vinther (talk) 13:15, 7 April 2014 (UTC)

California (disambiguation)[edit]

You reverted my edit to the above disambiguation page. With due respect, did you pay any attention to my edit? IMHO it would seem not, the only comment you made was: "(Reverted good faith edits by Enquire (talk): Short descriptions are the guideline, just enough for ID purposes. (TW))". With due respect, I took great care to make this edit manually, because on several occasions now I have in he past re-insert references to Baja California, The Californias, and so on, when so called good-faith editors have changed such references to simply California, apparently oblivious of the not so subtle distinctions between the various historical and contemporary territorial entities in the region of SW USA and NW Mexico. I do not mean to suggest that you are unaware of these distinctions, but it has been my experience on Wikipedia as well as in the real world that there are a significant population of otherwise knowledgeable people, who only have superficial knowledge of the historical and factual origins of "California". I trust you understand; I have taken the liberty to revert your reversion of my earlier edit, please take a closer look. You should note that, in addition to organizing and grouping entries, I added a few new ones that should have been on the disambiguation page before, but were not. You may feel that there is excessive editorial, but in my experience, there is a great deal of confusion and misinformation about the distinctions between these various state entities and that, therefore, some rudimentary explanation is appropriate.
Enquire (talk) 03:33, 21 April 2014 (UTC)

A disambiguation page is not the place to deal with "confusion and misinformation". It is strictly a navigation tool, with specific guidelines. DABENTRY states "Keep the description associated with a link to a minimum, just sufficient to allow the reader to find the correct link." I forgot to mention it in my edit comment, but the Baja California entries also violate WP:Partial title matches. If you still disagree, I suggest you ask for a second opinion at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Disambiguation. Clarityfiend (talk) 03:52, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
Incidentally, I think the MoS link you referenced is actually Wikipedia:DABENTRY#Individual_entries. right? On this matter, I would entirely agree that a disambiguation page is not the place to deal with "confusion and misinformation". However, there is confusion and misinformation and therefore it is important that this disambiguation page (in particular) clarifies the not so subtle distinctions between the various state entities (present and historical) clearly and concisely. IMHO, I think the current version does that. Maybe the entry for Alta California appears at first glance to be a little verbose, but I could not see any obvious redundant string of words that could be deleted without detracting from a concise differentiation of the various current and former states, provinces and territories without introducing some level of ambiguity. Overall, I feel that as is, including the indented sub-entries is a clear way to classify and disambiguate the various meanings of "California" as a state / province / territory. If you feel otherwise, and not wishing to be perceived as driven by pride of authorship, perhaps we should start a discussion on Talk:California_(disambiguation)?
Enquire (talk) 06:59, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
As a footnote, I have a friend who lives in San José del Cabo, Baja California Sur and I needed to send documents overnight via FedEx. FedEx dispatch called me to tell me that I had made a mistake on the label and wanted to know if this package was to go to California or Mexico. The wanted me to either replace the word "California" with "Mexico" (to make "Baja Mexico Sur") OR to delete "Mexico" and add a "US zip code". I forget how long I was on the phone, but it could have been over an hour. I demanded to speak to a supervisor, who was not much more knowledgeable ... but finally, I was able to convince someone at FedEx that "Baja California Sur" is a real state that really does exist in Mexico. Considering that employees of an International logistics company are confused just speaks volumes on the need to make a clear and concise disambiguation page for "California". Please note, prior to my edit, there were no entries at all for: Alta California; Baja California (Norte); or, Baja California Sur.
Enquire (talk) 07:30, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
We'll get a quicker response at the project's talk page, so I'm going to start the discussion there. P.S. There aren't supposed to be entries for anything other than California. Two of the three you cited have their own dab pages. Clarityfiend (talk) 09:17, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
Ok, let's do that. Enquire (talk) 20:16, 21 April 2014 (UTC)

Article merge[edit]

Can the 2 article titles List_of_books_featuring_transgender_persons and List_of_transgender_characters_in_literature be merged into 1 article or can the title of article be redirected? Because there is no need for 2 separate articles with the same content.

Becuase I do not have the expertise education or time to understand reemerging....... Perhaps you could fix the template Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender fiction and merge the transgendered literature section together? I'm not computer savvy so I'm not sure........

Somebody already deleted the second list as a duplicate, but I fixed the template. Clarityfiend (talk) 22:47, 6 May 2014 (UTC)

List of deaths in rock and roll[edit]

I am not necessarily disagreeing with all your changes - but, you need to make clear on the talk page what your criteria are, and see whether other editors agree with you. The introduction to the article - which you have not sought to change - gives no indication that it excludes deaths due to old age. That is a criterion that needs to be explained and agreed if it is to be adopted. In my view, Gene Pitney, who died unexpectedly following a concert, should certainly be included - at 66, he did not die of "old age". As you may have picked up from the talk page, there is another editor who has his own, different, criteria as to who should be included. We need to try to agree these criteria. As I say, I may agree with you on some of them, at least. Ghmyrtle (talk) 08:06, 7 June 2014 (UTC)

William Tomicki possible deletion[edit]

Dear Clarityfiend:

Thank you for your interest in my Wikipedia page.

My wish to delete my page was simply frustration talking and not at all what I wish. I would just like an accurate article about me posted without the controversy or criticism.

And I would be happy to provide more facts, backup or information to clarify any issue. I, too, seek an honest and properly researched page full of transparency and scrupulously honest.

Sincerely, William Tomicki

Deletion of my page[edit]

What the fuck?

Why was my page deleted? I believe this was done maliciously. I'm pretty certain I know who generated this deletion.

I've been a TV writer for 33 years. I had my own series, a number of pilots shot, wrote on a dozen shows and did many tv movies. One of them won a Christopher Award and another was nominated for the Humanitas, a prestigious award. And I can go on.

If there is a specific credit or award issue, contact me here.

There are plenty of other TV writes with far fewer credits and awards than me on wikipedia.

I want my page restored.

William Schmidt (TV writer)— Preceding unsigned comment added by Pgh2la (talkcontribs)

You can see the discussion here. The gist of it is that you haven't received significant media attention (failing WP:GNG) and your awards are shared. The fact that less-qualified writers may have articles just means they haven't been detected yet. Clarityfiend (talk) 00:40, 22 July 2014 (UTC)

Edits of Rendezvous Infobox[edit]

I had noticed you made some style changes to the film Rendezvous and had them immediately reverted by Ken. I have tried (see her to make similar style changes in keeping with MOS:BOLD and MOS:ITALICS as well as keeping some things with the Template:Infobox film. He has reverted not just styles but corrections to inaccurate information as well as reverting corrected wikilinks (he does not even seem to look at any compromise proposals before reverting). I would love to get more discussion and more opinions on the Talk:Rendezvous_(1935_film) page in an effort to show what discussion and compromise means. The style and accuracy are relatively minor issues that I think need to be resolved. But I would like them resolved before I try to tackle the larger issues of the "trivia" in the infobox.

Hi Clarityfiend I seen you disagree with the article I have written, it fails WP:ENTERTAINER you voted. Well please explain why you disagree, when I notice several articles that doesn't meet the Wikipedia guidelines but it not nominated for deletion. Please review this article of Paul Bates with no references to what notability with minor roles. I don't understand how this article is allow without explaining its point of view or reliable source of verification. Another argument is this article Brittney Wilson she shares the same resources database as I used. She doesnt have any other references of explanation to be consider notable as a entertainer. My last argument is this article Young Cartoon has no notability and fails WP:ENTERTAINER, exceed dead links and article doesn't meet any standards to be notable. In conclusion if these articles can pass and be accepted to Wikipedia guidelines, my article should be Kept as well. I think you help me saved my first article from deletion and help improve it. Please talk to me -- Iranmichealst@lk 23:29, 4 August 2014 (UTC)

The fact that other unworthy articles haven't been detected yet (there are lots of 'em out there) is not a reason for keeping Prince Richardson; as another voter noted, WP:Other stuff exists.

The Tribune[edit]

Regarding this edit, which newspapers that go by the title of The Tribune, rather than The Sometown Tribune, come anywhere close to matching the notability of the nationally distributed newspaper in India? 82.9.185.151 (talk) 19:09, 14 September 2014 (UTC)

How about the New-York Tribune? "The paper achieved a circulation of approximately 200,000 during the decade of the 1850s, making it the largest in New York City and perhaps the nation." Or the Chicago Tribune (circulation 450K)? Also, I don't see how the systemic bias notice applies here. AFAIK, it's more for regular articles, not lists. Also, foreign newspapers are listed. Clarityfiend (talk) 01:13, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
The point is that those newspapers are called the New-York Tribune and the Chicago Tribune, not The Tribune. And splitting a list into the United States and "elsewhere" is very blatant systemic bias. 82.9.185.151 (talk) 07:54, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
No, they are commonly called The Tribune. And it's not systemic bias if there are a ton of American newspapers and not more than a few for each other country. It's just silly to have tiny country sections with one or two entries. The only other country with more than two entries is mine. Clarityfiend (talk) 08:45, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
If this is supposed to be a disambiguation page then it should follow WP:PTM, and if it's supposed to be a list then it should follow WP:LISTNAME. This page does neither. 82.9.185.151 (talk) 17:56, 17 September 2014 (UTC)
Try reading the articles. In New-York Tribune, it says the Tribune nearly everywhere except in the intro. Chicago Tribune, the same thing. Ditto in Kokomo. In any article of any length on the list, the subject is referred to at least once as the Tribune, as far as I can tell. You're beating a dead horse. If you don't believe me, ask for a Wikipedia:Third opinion. Clarityfiend (talk) 00:00, 18 September 2014 (UTC)
You're obviously set on including these partial title matches, despite frequently admonishing other editors for doing exactly the same, so I've started a discussion at Wikipedia:Requested moves. 82.9.185.151 (talk) 21:05, 20 September 2014 (UTC)

Chase Iron Eyes[edit]

Hi Clarityfiend,

We noticed that the page for Chase Iron Eyes has been deleted, and while I am trying to figure out the specifics, I am curious as to why this has happened. Could you please give me some insight? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kimberlywein (talkcontribs) 17:44, 19 September 2014 (UTC)

Joseph DeLuca[edit]

Hello, I noticed that you "re-directed" the Joseph DeLuca (racing driver)to "the doomed flight." His link now brings one to the United Airlines Flight 93 page; however there is no mention of DeLuca or any of the other passengers on the flight on that page. Where did you move the text about the man who joined with other passengers to breach the cockpit and take control from the hijackers intent upon using the plane to attack Washington DC to? Perhaps I am missing something on that page. Thank you!Taram (talk) 08:16, 20 September 2014 (UTC)

What text? His sister's belief that he "would have been one of those who stood up to fight the hijackers" is just biased conjecture. Nobody knows what role he played. All that is known is that he made three phone calls from the plane, only one of which lasted any significant length of time (130 sec., to his parents). That is mentioned in the hijacking section of Flight 93. Talking on the phone doesn't make you Alexander Graham Bell. Todd Beamer's article lists the people who decided to fight; DeLuca isn't mentioned there. Thus, I don't see any reason for a separate article about him. Would you prefer I put him up for deletion at WP:Afd instead? Clarityfiend (talk) 09:57, 21 September 2014 (UTC)
Saw your question at the Helpdesk about the correct way to go about moving an article. Yes, going through AfD is the proper route since a redirect is basically the blanking of a page. By using AfD the WP community as a whole provides input rather than one person making the decision. At AfD, the WP community can also discuss a redirect so the thoughts are documented.Taram (talk) 14:41, 21 September 2014 (UTC)
As an answer to your question, "What text?", I was asking if you had saved the information ("the text") originally on the page for DeLuca anywhere.Taram (talk) 14:55, 21 September 2014 (UTC)

Chase Iron Eyes[edit]

Okay, I could use a second opinion. I closed, rightly, I think, the AfD you participated on on Chase Iron Eyes as delete a couple days ago, and more or less I'm coming to you first because I'm most familiar with, and respectful of, your AfD participation. I took a shot at cleaning up that article after someone pinged me on my talk page about it. You can see my attempt at Draft:Chase Iron Eyes. I'm still not quite sure it gets to WP:BASIC, even though I do think I've substantially improved the article-- there are several good quality sources that mention, quote, or talk about him, but in the case of the latter it's never more than a sentence or three, no full-length bios. Anyway, more or less, I'll take your gut call on this--if you don't think it's met the bar, I'll be happy to put it back in the article morgue and call it a day, if you do think it has, I'll submit it via AfC and let the chips fall where they may. No hard feelings either way. Thanks in advance. --j⚛e deckertalk 01:45, 22 September 2014 (UTC)

You got it right when you said it doesn't meet BASIC. There's no in-depth coverage of him; the best is just a single paragraph from the Bismarck Tribune, and that's not good enough. Clarityfiend (talk) 02:08, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
Acknowledged. Thanks for your time, I do appreciate it. I've deleted the draft (after putting it back at the original title.) Best, --j⚛e deckertalk 02:23, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
