Italic titles[edit]

I notice you've been adding the (incorrect) {{displaytitle}} markup to some articles.

The correct markup is described at Wikipedia:DISPLAYTITLE.

It's often not necessary to write out a full DISPLAYTITLE declaration yourself. For instance, if all you want to do is make an article title display in italics, you can use the {{italic title}} template, which automatically works out the details for you (it even knows not to include a disambiguation suffix like "(1965 TV series)" in the italics, if there is one). In addition, if an article has an infobox (as A Man Called Shenandoah does), it may not be necessary to add anything at all; all the major infoboxes for TV series, films, novels, etc. add the italics for you.

Hope this helps. — Paul A (talk) 04:21, 8 July 2013 (UTC)

Kellie Loder[edit]

Hi Jim,

I was wondering if you would consider reviewing my current FAC for the Kellie Loder article. I noticed that you reviewed the Ringo Starr FAC and thought you might be interested in this FAC as well. Any constructive comments you would be willing to provide at the corresponding discussion would be greatly appreciated.

Neelix (talk) 21:12, 23 August 2013 (UTC)

Hi Jim,
I really appreciate you reviewing this article. I believe I have addressed your concerns. Please let me know if I have not or if you have any further ones.

Orphaned non-free media (File:Little Man With a Candy Cigar excerpt.ogg)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:Little Man With a Candy Cigar excerpt.ogg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Werieth (talk) 19:42, 12 September 2013 (UTC)

Elvis table[edit]

Did you know how this edit interferes with editing the table? Go to Elvis' Golden Records Volume 3#Original release. Click the word "edit" after "Original release" (not after "Track listing" above.) Make any edit if you want (this step is optional). Click "Show Preview". It shows computerese instead of a table.

To determine that the edit I linked is what causes the problem, copy the version before that edit to a sandbox (it won't let you edit a section if you just look at it). Edit and preview the section. No problem. Repeat with the version after your edit. The problem occurs.

I don't know enough about tables to fix it (except by reverting you), but I have pinpointed the cause. Art LaPella (talk) 05:15, 12 December 2013 (UTC)

I found this discussion of someone with a similar problem. Don't ask me what it means, but it sounds like the solution is to simplify the table structure. Art LaPella (talk) 05:32, 12 December 2013 (UTC)

Wagon Train Episodes[edit]

I disagree with your POV that key actors should not be included in episode lists. What has been done in the other articles that you cite is irrelevant to what happens on the Wagon Train. Adding this information is clearly useful since people watching these episodes will certainly be curious about where they have seen a particular actor before. Many of the TV productions from the time period of Wagon Train employed actors that were well known for other roles. Indeed, only one of those that I added had a red link. As for the role of IMDb, your opinion that it is unreliable does not translate broadly into making its information unusable in all circumstances. Some kinds of information on that site, particularly lists of credited cast taken from the presentations themselves, are generally reliable. I expect that you will stop making these "undue" changes to my edits. You do not own the article. Eclecticology (talk) 20:49, 26 February 2014 (UTC)

I see you are intent on continuing your rude behaviour. I looked at Talk:List of Smallville episodes, and there was nothing there about excluding a column of cast members. Eclecticology (talk) 21:05, 26 February 2014 (UTC)
I've considered your proposal, and I don't think that the time is right for it. I agree that it is already a long article, but there are already long lists of episodes with cast members included, and at some future time there could be change. Still we are not in the stage that Twilight Zone has reached with an article for every episode. There is a wide variety of approaches to this kind of article. We need to be mindful of what information the reading public will find most useful. I'm sure they will ask about the cast first, especially if the face is familiar. By coincidence I was just watching an episode of the Alfred Hitchcock Hour in which the same Macdonald Carey that triggered this discussion also played the lead role. See List of The Alfred Hitchcock Hour episodes, where cast members are also shown. An interesting feature of the Wagon Train episodes is the large proportion named "The [somebody's name] Story". Surely these were intended to feature at least one guest actor for the title role. Eclecticology (talk) 11:23, 27 February 2014 (UTC)
