January 2014[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm DMacks. I noticed that you made a change to an article, but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you need guidance on referencing, please see the referencing for beginners tutorial, or if you think I made a mistake, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you.

GAN reviewing[edit]

Hi King of the Wise! I noticed that you reviewed the article on the Big Bang, and failed it because the article is already a featured article. In the future, if you ever come across that scenario (or one where the article is already a GA), you can simply remove the GAN tag from the talk page, without creating a review page. Just use an edit summary like "Article is already a FA, no need for GAN, removing tag" so that everyone knows what you're doing. Thanks! Dana boomer (talk) 17:20, 22 January 2014 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of A Whole Nother Story (Book)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article A Whole Nother Story (Book) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

No credible assertion of notability

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. TheLongTone (talk) 18:12, 24 January 2014 (UTC)

Adding sources[edit]

Hi King Of The Wise. The references that you added to A Whole Nother Story appeared to be broken when opened. However it was because of an error. For e.g., a reference was added like <ref>[http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html?docId=1000461501| amazon books of the month December 2009]</ref> while they should be added like <ref>[http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html?docId=1000461501 amazon books of the month December 2009]</ref> (leaving one single space between the url and the name). I'd suggest you look at WP:CITE and for proper formatting, try using the Cite option from the editing bar. Thanks One hundred and twenty-seven (talk) 17:10, 25 January 2014 (UTC)

Advising another user[edit]

Hello, King Of The Wise. The other editors advising User:Rudra john cena on his talk page are very experienced editors (tens of thousands of edits), and most of them are also administrators. I see that you have said to him "You should definitely stop doing things you're ill-experienced at." I suggest that you might take your own advice and stop giving instructions to him. You, too, are not yet experienced enough to be doing so. Regards, --Stfg (talk) 15:32, 28 January 2014 (UTC)

(Please read this full) I did not give any instructions to anyone. Ok. I have been merely requesting him, and that too very politely not to do things i consider wrong, as a fellow wikipedian not as an arrogant, "thinks-he's-above-all". Ok i don't think there is anyone wrong with whatever i did. I merely asked him to stop doing things he was not being able to do well, thats all, so that he might, knowingly or unknowingly, not cause harm to anyone, myself or others. Allright. I know i am not an experienced wikipedian myself, but i have not been doing things i don't know. And i just told someone else not to do what was surely wrong, just requesting him, not ordering or instructing. And if you think he's a piteous, cute, shy little fellow who is just hearing accusations and keping quiet then you are tooooo wrong. He bited me back and not too politely, wrongly accusing me just coz' I pointed out his mistakes. I just deleted it from my talk page. He definitely spoke back. Also we are not all pouncing upon him, and not for no reason. He is been doing really wrong stuff. If you have not seen his talk page well than you might not know but he has, in the past, uploaded copyighted images to his name even citing himself as someone else. He has given himself undeserving service awards, stated himself as administrator and done many other wrong things. He became a good articles mentor when he himself did not know anything about it, nominating random pages and even going as far as nominating a featured article. He does not know about new page patrolling and has still been doing so adding sppedy deletion tags for no rason or wrong reasons. For this he was even complained of at the administrator's notice-board, where consensus was reached he should stop patrolling new pages. Still, he shows himself as new page patroller. It is because of all this that i merely requested him to not do what he's ill-experienced at. And what i said before that were polite rquests too. I have done nothing wrong, politely requesting him to stop showing false claims. Its nothing about me being experienced or not. I am really not an arrogant fellow. I have even said sorry to him in case anything I said hurt him. So please don't think i am the wrong one or bad guy and please see the full context of the talk before accusing anyone.

Still sorry if i said anything wrong, and sorry if i did anything wrong to that user. I'll not do it again. Thanks for telling me What you thought was right.

Thanks.  :) (please reply) King Of The Wise (talk) 16:52, 28 January 2014 (UTC)

The above is a massive personal attack. Many of your postings on his page have been expressed as instructions, more imperative than requests. Putting "please" or "therefore kindly" in front of an imperative doesn't stop it being an imperative. None of us is perfect (see about GAN reviewing above), but the way to handle this sort of thing is to allow experienced editors to provide guidance as appropriate. In this text-only environment, it's all too easy to come across as more aggressive than you intend, and that can lead to a personality clash that hurts everyone. The only way to avoid these things escalating is to disengage. This edit to his talk page was unhelpful because Rudra had already accepted the advice given by Laser brain and Anna Frodesiak (both of whom are administrators). It would be wiser at this stage to focus on your own Wikipedia activity, rather than trying to comment on anyone else. --Stfg (talk) 19:08, 28 January 2014 (UTC)

Hey, what is your problem. I have understand by the advice given by Laser brain and Anna Frodesiak. I don't think that your advice is needed. And what is you trying to tell me by this "You should definitely stop doing things you're ill-experienced at." I don't think you are also experienced much. Give your advices to yourself rather than giving others. So, don't advice me any more. Instructions given by the above mentioned Users are far more politer than yours. Please don't give me any more instructions. Beside this you have told me to remove my patrolling user box. I don't understand what is your problem. I have patrolled some pages and then retired, that means I am a former patroller so being a former patroller I have the right to keep the user box.

Don't attack other users like this. I have gone through your user page and found that you are just a teenager, you must respect others as they maybe far more older than you in real life. I think you understand what fellow user means. Fellow are your friends in Wiki. I think you must respect other users with polite words rather than ill words. Stfg has already adviced you. So stop personal attack, Regards-- Rudra john cena (talk) 06:23, 29 January 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: Juan de Miralles[edit]

Hello King Of The Wise. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Juan de Miralles, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: The article makes a credible assertion of importance or significance, sufficient to pass A7.

Regarding GOCE copyedit request[edit]

Hello,

You requested the Guild of Copy Editors review your page entitled A Whole Nother Story. I have completed copyediting today and invite you to review the changes. The major issues were linguistic, but I also cleaned up the initial section and deleted some repeated reviews. I hope the changes meet with your approval, and I will check again with fresh eyes tomorrow. Good luck on your application for good article status.

TheFurorDivinus (talk) 19:49, 24 February 2014 (UTC)

In terms of writing tips, there are a few fundamentals to keep in mind for article writing. No matter how much you love or enjoy the topic you're working on, positive adjectives "excellent, good, funny" are just as inappropriate as negative ones. This is bias, and the most experienced writers struggle to keep their opinions out of factual text, so don't feel like you're alone in that:) Another area to watch is repeating your quotes. If you're about to put a direct quote from a source in your article, there's no reason to write the exact same message before it. "The reviewers found it humorous by saying, 'This book was quite humorous'"....let the quote speak for itself.
I pared down the lead because it contained a synopsis of the plot that was immediately followed by a section entitled "Plot." A lead should only touch each of the major subject headings in your article...like an abstract for a scientific study. You don't have to beat your readers over the head by repeating details unless the article is VERRRRYYYY LONNNGGG...and then you have to wonder why its so darn long.
Style is individual, and writing gets better with experience. Don't be afraid to use complex sentences or elements of grammar, like colons, serial commas, etc. When in doubt, read the sentence out loud and ask yourself whether someone listening to you would still be paying attention when you stopped talking:) If the answer is no, rewrite.
Hope that's helpful. You want people to read your article on Wikipedia and then go read Dr. Soup, right? Not because you're selling him but because you've presented an article that contains interesting information and a reader wants to go discover more about your subject. We are all of us here (okay, that's optimistic) to engage people in discovery of their world through factual record of all the world contains. Otherwise, why bother?

DVD Covers[edit]

Please don't add DVD covers just to show what they look like. That fails WP:NFCI. Thank you. Andrzejbanas (talk) 14:27, 25 February 2014 (UTC)

Hi. You bring up some good points! I don't think every article should include a DVD picture though either. Besides, covers change from country to country and region to region. Perhaps we should bring this up on WP:FILMS? Andrzejbanas (talk) 17:19, 25 February 2014 (UTC)
Hello again friend! I've brought up the discussion at WP:FILMS. Perhaps you should chime in there? Andrzejbanas (talk) 18:15, 25 February 2014 (UTC)

Toy Story Good Topic[edit]

Now that all the three theatrical films in the Toy Story Trilogy are GA's (very likely that the third film is the final entry), can Toy Story be made a Good Topic, just like James Bond? Kailash29792 (talk) 15:57, 25 February 2014 (UTC)

Kailash, I see you want this to happen. But i think there might be some complications in Toy Story's the path to Good Topic status. I'll suggest you connect to The wikipedia help IRC chat. Go here - http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=wikipedia-en-help. It will be easier to talk there. (please reply with yes or no) King Of The Wise (talk) 16:07, 25 February 2014 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Toy Story 3 DVD set cover.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Toy Story 3 DVD set cover.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image 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 that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 17:15, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

Pinocchio[edit]

Hi, sorry about this but it is English wikipedia so a big list of titles in other languages is inappropriate. We could do that for every film and book ever made and it means nothing on English wikipedia. The crew section you added was too bloated not to mention unsourced, but you could mention a few of the art directors etc in prose in the production section rather than a list so long as you source it, but imdb isn't considered a reliable source in articles even if you can retrieve it from there.♦ Dr. Blofeld 11:50, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

As regards this comment, I would invite you to read Wikipedia's article on the matter. Cheers! =) ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 16:52, 28 March 2014 (UTC)

Dear User:Dinoguy1000, Sorry! I really didn't knew that. I just read that article!! I never knew we could call it lede. Sorry for that comment. Hope you're not thinking of me as an arrogant brat who thinks he is too intelligent (i know my username might sound like that but that is just for fun). And thanks for telling me. :)

Btw what do you think of my view in your page move request?

King Of The Wise (talk) 18:07, 28 March 2014 (UTC)

It's not a problem. Just be more careful about jumping to conclusions in the future. =)
If I had a strong/relevant opinion on your comment, I'd've already replied in the discussion. As it stands, I'm more interested in seeing if anyone else has an opinion or further relevant information. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 18:43, 28 March 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Chin-china ki babla boo[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Chin-china ki babla boo, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page appears to have no meaningful content or history, and the text is unsalvageably incoherent. If the page you created was a test, please use the sandbox for any other experiments you would like to do.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. JMHamo (talk) 10:17, 6 April 2014 (UTC)

JMHamo What the hell!! I did not create no such page, unless in my sleep. How the hell is it showing that i created it? Please do delete it and delete it fast.

Pixar franchises[edit]

If "Finding nemo is not a franchise yet too!," then Finding Nemo (franchise) shouldn't exist either. A "franchise" usually consists of more than just two movies and related tie-ins. Otherwise, most of the films on this list would qualify as well. Trivialist (talk) 13:15, 6 September 2014 (UTC)

The point of a separate "franchise" article is to give an overall summary of the whole thing, and list some or all of the various things that have been produced. In the case of The Incredibles, the article about the movie already does that.
Also, you said, "That's the reason you won't find articles like Bad Boys (franchise) or Kick Ass (franchise) or Jewel Thief (franchise) or Jack Frost (franchise) or, well you get my point[...]" Why not? There have been two Bad Boys movies with a third rumored, two soundtracks, and a video game. Kick-Ass is a comic book series that was adapted to two films and a game. Those seem closer to a media franchise than The Incredibles. Trivialist (talk) 18:15, 6 September 2014 (UTC)
