Help needed: Jayne Mansfield[edit]

A mid-importance article supported by WikiProject Actors and Filmmakers that was reviewed by Version 1.0 Editorial Team and selected for Version 0.7 and subsequent release versions. The article has come a long way from a fan boy mish mash to a fair enough GA. Now is the time to take it to the next level. Currently it's going through another peer review. Serious help is needed to clean up the copy. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE. Aditya(talkcontribs) 10:19, 23 April 2012 (UTC)


Hi. I saw that you deleted some popcult items from Exhibitionism. I'm not going to contest the deletion, becauise they were borderline notable, but I did want to point out that WP:IPCEXAMPLES, which you cited in your edit summary, is an essay, and is not policy (which must be followed) or a guideline (which it is recommended to follow). Thanks. Beyond My Ken (talk) 16:21, 12 September 2012 (UTC)

I understand. Thank you for pointing that out. Although I recognize it as a matter of opinion, I agree with most of the essay's points; I think it is truly a helpful guide for determining inclusion/exclusion of popular culture references (in sections which, untended, can grow toward an exhaustive list of mentions in popular culture, regardless of relevance), and I honestly think that the two examples listed added very little to the article or to the understanding of the topic. I would not have re-deleted it but for the fact that I saw other editors attempting the same thing (i.e. in agreement with me). Sincerely, MattMauler (talk) 16:43, 12 September 2012 (UTC)
Really, no problem from me with your actions at all. I'm very strongly in favor of allowing popcult sections in articles, but I also recognize that this creates a responsibility to stop them from growing like topsy, and I frequently remove trivial mentions and non-notable items from them.

Article Feedback deployment[edit]

Hey MattMauler; I'm dropping you this note because you've used the article feedback tool in the last month or so. On Thursday and Friday the tool will be down for a major deployment; it should be up by Saturday, failing anything going wrong, and by Monday if something does :).
