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.

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)

Just checking for additional comments[edit]

RE:User talk:ATC#Looking for help with the Temperatures Rising article[edit]

I replied to your comment on my talk page. ATC . Talk 00:39, 24 October 2014 (UTC)
Having reviewed the article, while the writing and sources are quite good, I came across an issue that will not be approved for featured article status which is structure. It is missing a "Production" section (which should include development/concept; filming; the showrunner, writer/producers, and other crew; music) and should be listed first in the body. Also "First season" and "Second season" should not have its own sections; rather, they should be discussed under a "Synopses" section. A list of characters should not be in the synopses. They should be in a "Casting" section right below "Production". And "Ratings", "Reviews", and "Further reviews and sinking ratings" should be consolidated into one category, "Reception", being listed at the end of the article (and should discuss the ratings of ALL the seasons). And "Summer replacement", which should be listed after the synopses section, should be retitled to "Series renewal" as the proper heading. And finally, remove the "Episodes" section, and instead, list the "Further information: List of Temperatures Rising episodes", right below the "Synopses" section header (before the first paragraph).
Also, while this is a minor issue, this should also be addressed. While the developer and creator share similar roles, there are differences. Did William Asher create or develop the show? If he developed it, make sure to change "created by" (in the infobox) to "developed by" and list the creator and the book, film, or TV series the show is based on. If he did create the show, change "originally developed, produced, and occasionally directed by" to "created, produced, and occasionally directed by".
Make sure to make these tweaks (I mentioned above) and I'll address if there is any more issues. I'd like to see it when you reconstruct the article. Good luck! ATC . Talk 01:29, 24 October 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the advice for the article. Unfortunately, your statement that it needs a section on the series' production throws a major and insurmountable roadblock in my way. Temperatures Rising is not currently playing in syndication nor is it commercially available on DVD or blu-ray. Hence there are no audio commentaries or behind-the-scenes documentaries discussing the making of the show. Likewise, there are also no websites, books, or magazine articles devoted to it. Thus I simply do not have any information about the series' writers, photographers, directors (other than Asher) and other crew members. The only thing available is one TV fan site with an episode list but the information it has is sparce and I'm fairly sure that it would be dismissed as being unreliable.

Is the article structure you suggested an absolute? Is there any talk page regarding this? I separated the show's seasons and reviews into different sections because it seems a logical way to discuss the series when considering how it was changed around so radically. In fact, one reviewer suggested the two seasons be given separate articles. I vetoed this idea as did several other reviewers. My decision then is to keep the article's structure the way it is.

As for the bit about Asher, I did change the infobox to say he was the developer rather than the creator of the series. Also, a friend of mine who has published several articles on film history gave me a few suggestions on improving the grammar of the article. I have implemented them into the text.

So, at present time, I'm keeping the article as it currently stands. Where do we go from here? Jimknut (talk) 17:19, 24 October 2014 (UTC)

I see what you are saying about the article's structure. I'd take it up with the FAC staff, explain to them the reasons for the formatting structure. Also, I understand you can't find info on the TV series' production and crew because it is an old show, and yes, you are correct that you cannot use any unreliable sources. I just don't know whether or not they'll accept it without that info (of course, with reliable sources only).
I don't know how I could be of any more assistance other than to wish you luck on the FAC status (It looks like it is written quite well). I made some minor edits by adding a couple of commas and apostrophes (where needed). BTW, what did you mean by I "shot you down"? Just trying to provide you with my advise from what I know on FAC criteria for TV shows. At this point, you may need to ask someone else for further assistance (for this article) because I have no more advise to give and FAC is not my area of expertise (I've only had successes with promoting articles to WP:GAN. Maybe try nominating it for a GAN article first? I think you may have better success). Take care, and again good luck! ATC . Talk 02:23, 25 October 2014 (UTC)
