Formatting - episode names[edit]

Hello... thank you for the work you're doing on Doctor Who articles. Please keep in mind, however, that episode names should be in quotation marks ("Rose"), while titles of television series/shows are italicized (Doctor Who). Cheers! --Ckatzchatspy 21:57, 19 May 2007 (UTC)

Checking the Manual of Style, I see that you are correct.
Dmforcier 16:55, 20 May 2007 (UTC)
FYI, the Doctor Who articles are a bit confusing at present, as they are in the midst of switching from a custom formatting to the Wikipedia standard. (For years, DW articles have been using italics for episode names.) There is a discussion about the formatting on the Doctor Who project page. Thanks again. --Ckatzchatspy 17:15, 20 May 2007 (UTC)
I just posted a question about formatting story names on the main article discussion page. Please weigh in or post a ref to the project discussion there. Dmforcier 17:23, 20 May 2007 (UTC)
I pointed that topic to the project discussion and made my views known. Dmforcier 18:14, 20 May 2007 (UTC)

Worcestershire sauce[edit]

I do not understand why my edit was reverted. Could you please explain? Shouldn't the proper name be used like it is throughout the article? Erianna (talk) 08:42, 13 July 2010 (UTC)

The proper name - and trademark - is "Lea & Perrins", not "Lea and Perrins". Dmforcier (talk) 22:41, 23 July 2010 (UTC)
The trademarked name is "Lea & Perrins," not "Lea and Perrins." In this article, Lea and Perrins, the persons, are also referred to. Your revert was correct but your explanation is somewhat confusing since it doesn't explain your revert. Two persons referred to in running prose shouldn't be joined by an ampersand per WP:&. Ponydepression (talk) 02:10, 9 September 2010 (UTC)
Since - as you state - the reversion did not affect those references, what is your problem? That I didn't make the inapplicable distinction in the one-sentence explanation? Can we move on now? Dmforcier (talk) 01:54, 15 September 2010 (UTC)
I don't have a problem with you personally, I was just pointing it out. It wasn't an inapplicable distinction. You posted an automated warning on this user's talk page, and responded here, without actually explaining what he/she did wrong. Ponydepression (talk) 23:56, 17 September 2010 (UTC)

WP:FOOD Needs You![edit]

Hi there Dmforcier! I've noticed you have yourself listed as a member of the Food and Drink Wikiproject. Unfortunately it looks like the project has been slowly sliding into inactivity except for a couple of people. That makes me a sad potato, and nobody likes a sad potato amirite?

If you'd like to turn my frown upside down, can you do two small things?

First off, go here and add {{Tick}} (YesY) next to your name if you're still part of the project.

Second, go to the project talkpage and participate in a discussion about how to make the project more active, and how to go about making articles in our area of interest a lot better.

You don't want to make me cry, do you? Potatoes have a lot of eyes you know. So come on, join in! :)
