Literature templates[edit]

As a note to self, here is INeverCry's list of 81 templates and Sadads templates. Randy Kryn 8:20 12 February, 2015 (UTC) edit: both links are now broken

16th Street Baptist Church bombing[edit]

Thanks for the message, Randy. I didn't mean to adjust your edit: We were both updating at the same time and it caused an edit conflict. Regards,--Kieronoldham (talk) 01:08, 18 February 2015 (UTC)

Freudian descendants[edit]

Is the Template:Sigmund Freud template really relevant to Lucian Freud, or to any of his decendants? A "Freud fanily" template might be appropriate, but surely not that one? What is the normal practice for the notable descendants of notable historical people? Thanks. Martinevans123 (talk) 13:12, 25 February 2015 (UTC) ( interesting connection reported here: [1], but still not general justification I think).

As a grandson the template is probably optional. Immediate family and grandparents, etc., are usually included when distributing templates, but grandchildren sometimes have a close relationship with their grandparents and those seem like the ones to put the template on. Lucian had a career on his own, and it doesn't look like he used his grandfather's life or data in that career, so either way. Thanks for the note. Randy Kryn 13:22 25 February, 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 13[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Selma to Montgomery marches, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Glory (song) (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

yet another lower-case move...with procedural complications against BRD norms[edit]

Hi; see [2] and note my comments in the last subsection...and the chorus of people informed about the subject who support the correct capitalization, and the specious claims by a person not informed about the subject who re-moved it against BRD after I had reverted the BOLD lower-case move.Skookum1 (talk) 01:52, 14 March 2015 (UTC)

Wierd punctuation[edit]

P Randy, why do you say that "Martin Luther King, Jr. Day" is the official name for the Birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr., holiday? Are you saying most books got it wrong? What's official about it? And why not style it more sensibly in Wikipedia? Dicklyon (talk) 02:30, 17 March 2015 (UTC)

Hi. I don't have the bill language itself, but here are a couple of quick links. The first is to Ronald Reagan's official speech when he signed the legislation: . The second, from the first reference on the page, to the United States Office of Personnel Management, publishing a list of official holidays: . There this one from some officialdom or another: (which, if you dig around in it, has links like this: ). I think the official name for the Day has the comma in it, I mean the legislation that Congress passed and Reagan signed. I just don't have a link yet for that one. Can you locate it? Thanks. Randy Kryn 3:24 17 March, 2015 (UTC) should do it. — Neonorange (talk) 04:11, 17 March 2015 (UTC)
Or paste this search string in Google: -> &equity;Martin Luther King, Jr. Day" federal law <- (saves an unsightly runon url) — Neonorange (talk) 04:48, 17 March 2015 (UTC)
Thank you for your links, kind sir, pointing out some proof in the pudding. But look what you have done....taken us into the bowels of the White House server itself. You can't rummage around in there without bumping into Lincoln's ghost or some other flotsam or jetsam, and by the time you climb out some of Nixon's old tapes are stuck to the bottom of your shoe. Randy Kryn 4:53 17 March, 2015 (UTC)
Well, the official federal holidays list doesn't call it that (and neither does the WorldCat link you gave us, whatever that's about), and the White House blog is hardly an authoritative source for an official name. I'm baffled on what neonorange's attempt to post a search string was supposed to do. Many of the "Martin Luther King, Jr. Day" hits that it finds if I change out the equity for a quotation mark are without the comma. Dicklyon (talk) 05:21, 17 March 2015 (UTC)
What I gave you is a search string that finds an index of federal regulations, and specifically the style of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. The url was quite long and broke the layout of Randy's page. I say the whitehouse blog is probably the most scrutinized blog in existence - in other words-the anti-blog. And the Google search is to this publication in worldcat: Code of federal regulations. LSA, list of CFR sections affected Author: Unitrd States Government Office of the Registrer. Both publications have it —> Martin Luther King, Jr. Day —> ; how else could it be? — Neonorange (talk) 05:45, 17 March 2015 (UTC) Proclamation. — Neonorange (talk) 17:55, 17 March 2015 (UTC)

Magic Realism[edit]

Magic(al) realism is generally used to refer to literature. Yes, a film can contain elements of magical realism, as the article suggests. But, movies generally are not broadly classified as such, at least in terms of identifying the primary genre. An argument can be made to include magic realism as a subset of the fantasy genre, although there is disagreement about whether fantasy and magic realism are essentially the same thing. Both include fantastic elements and are set in a world that may or may not otherwise look like our own. I would not be opposed to listing "magic realism" as a sub-genre of fantasy films in the template, but I stand by my interpretation that it is not a distinct genre by itself. Osubuckeyeguy (talk) 20:15, 18 March 2015 (UTC)

Fantasy is actually a much better place for it. I came across the term when I looked up Woody Allen's 'To Rome With Love' after seeing the film. Never heard of the term before, but have added to the Film genre template, so I plopped it in there. Thanks for catching the subtleties of the topic. Randy Kryn 20:20 18 March, 2015 (UTC)
