Apologies for the English Rose links[edit]

I had found the page in pretty much the state with little priority given to the main definitions of the term. As a result I had steamed ahead to create English rose (personal description). I hadn't intended to leave the link to the disambiguation page. Sorry for the hassle. Gregkaye (talk) 20:19, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

No problem. These things happen. I couldn't tell what was going on but a nice thing about WikiP is that a few edits fixes things :-) Cheers. MarnetteD|Talk 21:21, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

Italic title[edit]

Hi, I undid your undo: the purpose of the IP's edit was to eliminate the "Warning: Display title "<i>The Chase</i> (Doctor Who)" overrides earlier display title "The Chase (<i>Doctor Who</i>)"." which appears here and also puts the page in Category:Pages with DISPLAYTITLE conflicts. More at Template talk:Infobox film#Warning and linked threads. --Redrose64 (talk) 11:18, 1 August 2014 (UTC)

Santa Fe Opera[edit]

Many thanks for your kind words - and your excellent suggestion. I just broke the article in three for management purposes, but the header change is a good idea.

As I think you know, I live in Santa Fe, so am in the middle of the season: "Fidelio" was last night; right now I'm off to lead a backstage tour....!! Seeing the Colorado flag up above reminds that you live in the Denver area I believe. It seems a long time ago that we were contributing to the Denver Opera and performing arts centre articles. All the best, Viva-Verdi (talk) 14:02, 1 August 2014 (UTC)

@Viva-Verdi: Thanks for your kind note in return. Yes time goes by so quickly on WikiP and off. I got to take a backstage tour in my very first visit way back in 1975! It was on a trip conducted by Denver's classical radio station KVOD. We saw "Carmen" and "Falstaff" and the tour was during a rehearsal for "Cosi fan tutte." I hope that the people on your tour enjoyed it. I also hope that you enjoyed the "Fidelio" performance. I haven't been able to get there for the last couple summers but I did see "Griselda" in 2011. With that being the first Vivaldi and this summer being the first Beethoven it gives me hope that Dvorak's "Rusalka" might be performed there one day. I know it isn't considered to be among the top flight operas but I have always felt that the SFO would be the perfect setting for it - especially on the night of a full moon. This wishful thinking is fueled, in part, by a night in late July of 1988 when I attended the performance of "The Flying Dutchman" - Thunder and lightening on the horizon in act one - a light rain all through act two - clear star filled skies in act three and the extraordinary voice of James Morris throughout. A night that special could only of occurred there. Ah well, I better sign off because once I start down memory road it is hard to get off :-) Best regards!! MarnetteD|Talk 16:32, 1 August 2014 (UTC)

Hello! There is a DR/N request you may have interest in.[edit]


This message is being sent to let you know of a discussion at the Wikipedia:Dispute resolution noticeboard regarding a content dispute discussion you may have participated in. Content disputes can hold up article development and make editing difficult for editors. You are not required to participate, but you are both invited and encouraged to help find a resolution. Please join us to help form a consensus. Thank you! MrScorch6200 (talk | ctrb) 21:05, 1 August 2014 (UTC)

(copied from MS's talk page since I couldn't post it here before) Thanks MrScorch6200. As you have noted I am trying to resolve it with my post on the talk page. The other editor has, as yet, not felt the need to take part. Sadly, this editor has made the same kind of edit as Barbara Osgood (talk · contribs) and Barbara Oswold (talk · contribs) a little less than two years ago. We will see if your note changes anything. Thanks again for your time and efforts MarnetteD|Talk 21:49, 1 August 2014 (UTC)

Frankie Grande[edit]

Thanks. Can we get a longer term semi-protect on this article? -- Ssilvers (talk) 02:37, 2 August 2014 (UTC)

Hi Ssilvers. It has been along time since we bumped into each other! I let Ponyo know and I filed a RFPP. It is always up to the admin who reads the report so we will have to wait and see. OTOH the new (read sock) editor is vandalizing several articles so they may get a block as well. Many thanks for your vigilance on this article and for your work here at WikiP. MarnetteD|Talk 02:52, 2 August 2014 (UTC)
Well, it looks like we at least get a break until August 9. All the best! -- Ssilvers (talk) 03:28, 2 August 2014 (UTC)
(edit conflict) Our messages crossed but here is what I was typing while you were typing to me :-) I had to go off wiki for a bit @Ssilvers:. I returned to good news everyone - JLP is blocked and the article is protected until next Sat. Next crisis should be when JBU's block expires. S/he didn't live up to the promise made here which makes me doubt the "I'm retired" stuff on their user page. Time will tell I guess. Cheers. MarnetteD|Talk 03:32, 2 August 2014 (UTC)
Yep, that's about it.  :D -- Ssilvers (talk) 05:17, 2 August 2014 (UTC)

Hi. I've been away, with limited computer access, but now I'm back and have updated the article. Eventually, I think we should remove all the info about the HoH competitions, since they are better discussed in the Big Brother article, but I figure we may as well leave it in Grande's article until the show is over, or Grande is expelled. -- Ssilvers (talk) 22:00, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for your post. I agree about the removal of the HoH info. In fact, I am hoping that the article settles down when his time on BB is over. I just realized that I mentioned bumping into you after some time twice. As I get older it is starting to feel like Dave Bowman is using his little screwdriver to loosen my memory chips :-) OTOH it could show how glad that I am seeing your name on my watchlist again. In any event cheers! MarnetteD|Talk 22:09, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

Here is a reminder of one of our favourite films and get you jumping ...
Have a wonderful day! — | Gareth Griffith-Jones |The WelshBuzzard| — 10:00, 2 August 2014 (UTC)

Many many thanks @Gareth Griffith-Jones:. It is always wonderful to be reminded of L.A. 39 years ago Aug 2nd was also on a Saturday. My best friend from high school took me to My Brother's Bar which became my local watering hole in later years. We then went to see A Boy and His Dog (1975 film) - thus my edits that you ping thanked me for. Well, through the combined miracle of my still being around and DVDs I get to recreate those events tonight :-) I hope that you have a wonderful weekend and cheers!! MarnetteD|Talk 13:39, 2 August 2014 (UTC)
Enjoyed the link to the oldest still-operating bar in Denver, and wondered about the "mixed crowd of crusty old-timers, serious drinkers, families, artists and transplants" — sounds fascinating.
We are enjoying a long period of great summer weather over here — long may it last! I will raise a glass of Old Speckled Hen in your honour this evening. Cheers! — | Gareth Griffith-Jones |The WelshBuzzard| — 05:20, 3 August 2014 (UTC)
Old Speckled Hen. I stopped drinking that when they moved production from Abingdon (four miles from where I live) to Bury St Edmunds (120 miles away in Suffolk). It's not just the loyalty to Morland's - the water's different so they can't get the taste right. Imagine what would happen if they switched production of Brains SA to Southampton or Coventry, somewhere like that. --Redrose64 (talk) 09:49, 3 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the toast GG-J and for the mention of the different tastes R. I know that things are different now but one of my favorite memories of my 1980 hitchhiking tour of your sceptered isle was being in small town pubs and drinking the locally brewed ales, stouts and porters that they brought up from the basement in wooden casks. Last night was fun and now I am getting ready to head out on a crawl to several of the brew pubs that have sprung up in my neighborhood in the last year or so. Cheers to you both!! MarnetteD|Talk 17:46, 3 August 2014 (UTC)
I am in full agreement with you, Redrose, here, and another (older) example is when Ind Coope moved the production of Benskins bitter to Romford, Essex, when the well dried up in Watford, Hertfordshire.
All the best to you and Michael on this Sunday which sadly seems to be heralding an end to our glorious weather. — | Gareth Griffith-Jones |The WelshBuzzard| — 11:18, 10 August 2014 (UTC)

Just a reminder[edit]

WP:PRESERVE is in fact policy. Dogmaticeclectic (talk) 23:21, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

As is WP:BURDEN, WP:RS and WP:V. If references don't come with the edit these usurp preserve which BTW is a series of suggestions not demands. ur first. Thankfully you have now added some references which you could have just as easily done the first time. MarnetteD|Talk 23:29, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

Adding of inappropriate ELs[edit]

Hello MarnetteD We are brand new to Wikipedia and apologize for any errors we may have made in (complicated posting procedures) & via your objections under the Maxfield Parrish section today. We can make great contributions as we have been a collectors publication for over 40 years "The Illustrators Collectors New" and we do not even exist according to Wiki we also have 100s of articles on illustrators and much information here that Wikipedia does not have and could use. Also you did remove our listing for our new 12th edition Maxfield Parrish guide under: Further reading; we thought that would be alright since you have another, older, MP guide by Flacks listed under that same section. Can we put ours back in? Thank you for your responses. Denis Jackson — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ticndj (talkcontribs) 22:04, 9 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for your message. First, new messages go at the bottom of a talk page. They get lost if you put them at the top. Next, please read WP:ADV, WP:NOTADVERTISING, WP:SELFPROMOTION and WP:COI. There are others but this is a place to start. In a nutshell Wikipedia is not here to promote your or your companies books. As I am but one editor I suggest that I ask about your links at the Wikipedia:External links/Noticeboard and get input from a wider section of the Wikipedia community. Cheers.

Nomination of The British Theatre Guide for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article The British Theatre Guide is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/The British Theatre Guide until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. Sionk (talk) 12:36, 11 August 2014 (UTC)


Hi there. You seem to speak Japanese, and so obviously know better than me what Mifune's character says about his age. Even so, if what he says indicates that he's closer to forty than thirty, the article is now misleading. Have a good day. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2001:700:303:8:5CC8:A412:BBFF:B6C5 (talk) 00:23, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for your post. He is not saying that he is closer to forty in the literal sense. It is a metaphor for how he feels physically. Another saying that is akin to it is "It isn't the years - it is the mileage." Indiana Jones says it on the ship in the Raiders of the Lost Ark though it isn't original to that film. Thus the article is not misleading. MarnetteD|Talk 00:30, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

You are welcome SNUGGUMS. The editor was out of line to the point of bordering (with several toes across) on WP:BULLYING. No one needs that. Also your message is a nice change of pace from the vandal that is editing here tonight. Cheers. MarnetteD|Talk 03:08, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
Hope neither of us has to face such unpleasant times any time soon again. Snuggums (talk / edits) 03:10, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) It's interesting that MJ would be so pious given some very fundamental errors in the requests he's making (Action resulting in a ban? Uh, can you spell block?) in his frantic effort to protect the Wikipedia article from any changes. He could do with a civility brush-up; one would think he'd been studying at the knee of Malleus himself. --Drmargi (talk) 04:07, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
Hi @Drmargi:. I think some wires got crossed somewhere. Snuggums was talking about things that were going on with this thread that S removed with good reason IMO. I was referring to this doofus who got himself blocked. I may have missed this MJ what with all the stuff involving this bundle of joy. Oh well sorry for the confusion. It does get us a few more minutes closer to Saturday's new Doctor Who episode. Yippee. MarnetteD|Talk 04:15, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
Drmargi, User:ɱ falsely accused me of disruptively editing/spamming the Wikipedia article when all I did was request sources with "cn" tags. MarnetteD, would you say the user's behavior could come off as trying to WP:OWN the page? Came off as borderline personal attack with the accusations. Snuggums (talk / edits) 13:59, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
Hi @SNUGGUMS:. Oof this aging eyesight. All I could see was a little box not a stylized MJ. Now I think that @Drmargi: did know what was going on. Apologies to you both for my confusion. I am not sure about ownership of that specific article. You would have too look at its edit history to establish that. What MJ is displaying is an odd obsession with this "PERENNIAL PROPOSAL" nonsense. A) I have never seen that term before and B) The discussions I have seen about sourcing come down on the side of "it is required." Indeed WP:V and its subsection WP:BURDEN are policies as opposed to essays or guidelines. I can say that MJ was in violation of the WP:NOEDIT section of WP:BULLY. Now that is an essay but if it could be established that MJ repeated that behavior with several editors then IMO an AN/I thread would be appropriate. I know you are aware that there can be pluses and minuses in doing that. Ah well I will close by saying that I hope that you both have a delightful weekend. Cheers. MarnetteD|Talk 18:04, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
I suspect that the "perennial proposal" concerned is WP:PEREN#Require inline citations for everything. --Redrose64 (talk) 19:11, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Thanks for the link R. Good to know. While citing every sentence is not needed editors have very right to ask for something to be verified. C'mon weekend get here ASAP MarnetteD|Talk 20:07, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

Yes, that was what ɱ referred to. Snuggums (talk / edits) 21:23, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
@Mark Miller:Thanks for your note about others posting on your talk page. I will post the following here since it will only inflame things there. The link to the "Did you notice" is interesting in the light of the fact that editor has been here for sixth months and has less that 800 edits at this moment. Seems the reason for "I get to ignore you" isn't universal. @SNUGGUMS: you may want to be aware of this as well. WP:NOEDIT is a policy that is being violated time and again. Best regards to you both. MarnetteD|Talk 00:43, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
I'm not exactly sure what you're trying to say, MarnetteD, other than that I can't outright dismiss others' thoughts. Snuggums (talk / edits) 00:47, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
Sorry I wasn't more clear SNUGGUMS. Of course you are in the dark about this as you haven't seen this thread on Mark Miller's talk page. Since mj has been attacking you based on the amount of time you have been editing here I found the inconsistency in the reasoning notable. Perhaps the personal attacks on your integrity will stop but I wanted you to have this info if they don't. I know we are straying into WikiDrama and I apologize for that. I am not happy with the way you (and others for that matter) are being treated. Also my apologies if this makes things worse. MarnetteD|Talk 01:06, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for explaining. Glad you've got my back! :) Snuggums (talk / edits) 01:09, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

Safety Last![edit]

Yup, that's a great film. I especially love the part at the end where the guy's toupee comes off. Did you notice though three building changes during the climb, it began with Blackstone's advert and changed twice.♦ Dr. Blofeld 10:40, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the message Dr. Blofeld. I am glad you enjoyed the film. Lloyd's stunt work is even more amazing when you realize that he lost the thumb and forefinger on his right hand a few years earlier. I noticed the buildings but I was helped by the "making of" documentary (which includes several stills showing how the setups for the climb were done) and the commentary that accompanies the film that come with the Criterion Collection bluray. That companies product is truly a film class in a box. It is also wonderful to see the whole film because there are numerous wonderful moments. I suspect that most people have only seen the climb and aren't aware of the joys in the rest of the film. Cheers. MarnetteD|Talk 15:27, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

User:Al-alay45 and User:WoW65[edit]

In the SPI these were confirmed to one another, not to any other editor; CensoredScribe hasn't even been mentioned there. Peter James (talk) 19:17, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for your message Peter James. Oy I did a cut and paste and forgot to change the name many apologies. Thanks for catching it. I am not sure how any of yesterdays socks (which were coming fast and furious at one point) would connect to the editor you mention who was a problem seven years ago. Was the one edit to Wigan anything like the ones that you dealt with back then? Also, I don't know it you saw then before they were deleted but WoW65 created 4 or 5 stub article that were deleted. If they were like the ones that Homeontherange/NigelHowells was in the habit of making that would help bolster your suspicions. I think Smalljim removed them so you might ask him to take a look. I'll go and set things back to where they were. Thanks again and cheers. MarnetteD|Talk 19:32, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
The hoax articles weren't the main reason I suspected Homeontherange; the Wigan edit was - I've seen something similar but can't find it now - maybe the edit I saw was deleted or oversighted, or it was another vandal. Peter James (talk) 20:28, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for explaining things. Thanks, also, for your vigilance and for your work here at WikiP. MarnetteD|Talk 20:50, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie[edit]

I see that you reverted my change to the hatnote on The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie. The reason that the link to the disambiguation page is piped through the (disambiguation) redirect (per WP:INTDABLINK) is so that those of us at WP:DPL that fix disambiguation links will know that the link is intentional. -Niceguyedc Go Huskies! 11:06, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the explanation Niceguyedc. Although there are four articles listed on the page there are only two articles that have TPoMJB as their title - the novel and the film. Do you think that we per WP:PRIMARY should remove the (novel) - hatnote that article and the film and delete or redirect the "DAB" page. Or should we just leave things as they are. I was going to ask this at the DAB project but I thought that I would get your thoughts first. Thanks for your time. MarnetteD|Talk 15:49, 31 August 2014 (UTC)
I did a small amount of research, and it looks like it should stay the way it is. The novel and the film are linked by a little over 100 articles. Simple Google searches for "The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie film" and "The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie book" yield a similar number of results (120,000 vs. 140,000, with a "novel" search showing about 76,000). An argument for making the novel the WP:PRIMARY topic is that the film is based on the novel, and the novel is (slightly) more notable, but I don't think that is enough to make it the primary topic. The folks at WP:D might have a different opinion, of course. -Niceguyedc Go Huskies! 20:57, 31 August 2014 (UTC)
Thank you for all the time you put in on this Niceguyedc. You went above and beyond in doing the extra research. My concern was that there are four links on the DAB page but they only go to two articles which is a bit odd for some (though not all) readers. Again I appreciate your efforts and have a good week on wikiP and even more so off. MarnetteD|Talk 02:30, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

Audie Murphy[edit]

The page is not protected yet. Just requested as such. I reverted your edit only because something went haywire, and it also deleted all the images on the page. Have no idea why. However, in regards to the dates as I have them, they are styled as military dates because of his career. This was requested in one of the reviews, to make Audie Murphy's dates coincide with military date format. — Maile (talk) 20:54, 3 September 2014 (UTC)

Hi Maile66. Thanks for your note. I left it in my last edit summary but I'll also leave it here Wikipedia:Village pump (technical)/Archive 130#Something is wrong with Wikimedia Commons and the images. The images show up just fine for me. As to military dating it is noted at WP:STRONGNAT that is modern formatting. That wasn't the case when he was in the military when he was in it. I suspect you will revert it back so I will just say best wishes and thanks for your work on Audie's article and all your work here at WikiP in general. MarnetteD|Talk 20:59, 3 September 2014 (UTC)
I'm going to leave that date formatting up to the Military History site. I'm not going to edit war over it. I posted a note. Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Military history#Military_dates_or_civilian_dates.3F. I started out with his article as American style. Then, as I said, it got changed by request in one of the reviews. So let's see what happens if someone else weighs in. — Maile (talk) 21:08, 3 September 2014 (UTC)
Maile66 I wanted to post that I have no problem with you changing it back and then my internet connection went down and has only just been restored. That only seems to happen when I am in the middle of something like this. Thanks for the way that you are handling things and cheers. MarnetteD|Talk 22:19, 3 September 2014 (UTC)


"And a user with a history of socking is bound to have another sock account still active" is indeed a personal attack, it is accussing him of being a sockmaster. Ask an admin before you re-add. Murry1975 (talk) 21:10, 3 September 2014 (UTC)

No it isn't. Do you actually read AN and AN/I. Editors are accused of socking all the time at both. Sometime it is correct sometimes it isn't. In either case it is not a violation of WP:NPA. You are certainly free to post stating that you don't believe that socking is occurring but you are in clear violation of talk page guidelines and policies by trying to silence the edit in question. MarnetteD|Talk 22:15, 3 September 2014 (UTC)

Make Way for Tomorrow[edit]

That's a not very well known little gem. Lovely film about an aging couple. Bondi's performance is Oscar worthy, she should have won best actress in 1937! If you haven't seen it here, click 480 and download. It takes at least 30 minutes to download though. The last 30 minutes are so beautiful. Highly recommended to @Lugnuts: and @Krimuk90: who I know enjoyed On Golden Pond.♦ Dr. Blofeld 17:49, 6 September 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the info and the link @Dr. Blofeld:. My computer is such that it will probably take twice as long to download and the viewing experience wont be optimal :-( So I am going to wait until the next time that Barnes and Noble has their %50 off on Criterion Collection DVDs (which should be this Nov or early Dec) and add it to my library :-) I really appreciate you letting me know about it!! Cheers. MarnetteD|Talk 17:55, 6 September 2014 (UTC)
Yeah it's worth getting on DVD, definitely. I saw Things to Come yesterday which I was also highly impressed with, reminded me of Metropolis. A visual masterpiece and imaginative with some superb acting from Ralph Richardson. Some of the sets, especially the last one without looked like the interior of a high shopping mall with platform which appeared in thin air were quite impressive for the period. Obviously a lot of the effects are comical now but for its time and what it was trying to achieve I see it as a landmark film. It's the sort of film you'll either love or hate though.. ♦ Dr. Blofeld 18:05, 6 September 2014 (UTC)
Now that one I have seen @Dr. Blofeld: although it was years ago. You are right about the sets but I am always lenient about that. So often they are doing the best they can with what they've got and you are right about them being impressive for the period. Thanks again. MarnetteD|Talk 18:14, 6 September 2014 (UTC)

Dom DeLuise[edit]

You recently removed a category from Dom DeLuise. I partially agree and disagree. There is a source in the early life section that he graduated from there and attended Tufts. The source states the opposite, that he attended the high school and graduated from Tufts. He is listed at their alumni site as having graduated in 1951 (appropriate age 18 for high school). I'll look for a more reliable source later, and if found will readd it and fix the early life section to match and cite.--☾Loriendrew☽ (talk) 18:37, 25 September 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for your note and your research @Loriendrew:. To quote from WP:CAT "Categorization of articles must be verifiable. It should be clear from verifiable information in the article why it was placed in each of its categories." I have added italics to the word clear. The sentence in DeLuise's article reads "DeLuise graduated from Manhattan's High School of Performing Arts..." A reader has to go to that article to find that this school is "A Division of the Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts." So a) it is not clear in the DeLuise article why the category is there b) For me "A division of" is not the same things as the school itself. A read through of High School of Performing Arts#Development of a new building and a joint school shows that the merge with FHLHS... did not occur until 1961 when DeLuise would have been 28. I would also point out that the NYTimes ref does not mention any connection MHSoPA and the FHLHSoM&AaPAs at all. Based on all of this I don't think that the category can be added to the article. One other item I don't know if you have seen this Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents#Editor ignoring categorization concerns and mass-editing and apologies if you already have) where questions have been raised about the adding of the categor to various articles. I can't tell for sure but it looks like PC might have gotten carried away and started adding the category to articles some of which it should have it and some of which shouldn't. I am a bit pressed for time so I am typing and researching this quickly. If I have missed relevant info let me again offer my apologies. Cheers. MarnetteD|Talk 20:53, 25 September 2014 (UTC)
Good research there yourself! I won't go touching it.--☾Loriendrew☽ (talk) 23:51, 25 September 2014 (UTC)

Samuel Anderson[edit]

Hi, Glimmer721 (talk · contribs) hasn't edited in nearly 6 months. Do you recall this thread? In that, I mentioned Samuel Anderson. This is the same Samuel Anderson that is now playing Danny Pink in DW. --Redrose64 (talk) 18:52, 29 September 2014 (UTC)

Hello R. I also noticed that G was no longer editing. I miss her enthusiasm and research skills. I remember seeing the thread but I wouldn't have made the connection without your post. Great stuff and many thanks for making me aware of it!! MarnetteD|Talk 19:23, 29 September 2014 (UTC)
