Doctors (2000 TV series)[edit]

Hi, Just wondered why you have changed to the name of the above article? It has been going by Doctors (soap opera) for a long time and is a more accurate name for the article, as it is a soap opera. I am unaware of any discussion on the change as a proposal. Thanks. Adamiow (talk) 19:25, 1 August 2014 (UTC)

Hi Adamiow, it's per the naming guideline at WP:NCTV#Additional disambiguation, which doesn't advocate disambiguation by genre. --Rob Sinden (talk) 09:59, 4 August 2014 (UTC)
Also, I'm assuming that the reason that it isn't at Doctors (TV series) is because of the ambiguity between it and various programmes called The Doctors (TV series). Therefore, Doctors (soap opera) isn't sufficient disambiguation, as The Doctors (1963 TV series) is also a soap opera. --Rob Sinden (talk) 10:06, 4 August 2014 (UTC)
Sorry for the delay - been away. Personally, I think having Doctors (soap opera) or with a year added if necessary is more accurate. Nevertheless, having considered it further, do you feel that the names are different enough to have the article at Doctors (TV series), with a hatnote to The Doctors? Thanks. Adamiow (talk) 20:35, 6 August 2014 (UTC)
Hi again Adamiow, the naming guidelines don't allow for "soap opera" to be used as disambiguation. But personally, yes, I think Doctors (TV series) is sufficient enough, in the same way that Doctors (novel) would be disambiguated enough from any novel called The Doctors (novel). --Rob Sinden (talk) 08:03, 7 August 2014 (UTC)
Or indeed, the same way that Doctor (film) is considered suitably disambiguated from The Doctor (1991 film) and The Doctor (2013 film). --Rob Sinden (talk) 08:06, 7 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for your reply. That's great. I will move it over when I have a chance. Thanks. Adamiow (talk) 08:48, 7 August 2014 (UTC)

Bond template[edit]

Stop edit warring: you're being disruptive. This is simple common sense, not an exercise in mindless wiki-lawyering. You have an issue with the status quo, then open an RfC - ditto with the tom thumb article. - SchroCat (talk) 10:25, 18 February 2015 (UTC)

The edit warring at the Tom Thumb (film) article is all you. The status quo on the was with the house style, not the lowercase. You have yet to come up with a guideline that supports your move to lowercase. --Rob Sinden (talk) 10:33, 18 February 2015 (UTC)
No: It was in place from 2006 to 2013, so perhas you could try to stick to honesty on this one, rather then try and mislead by selectively decising what the sq is? - SchroCat (talk) 11:06, 18 February 2015 (UTC)
I think 18 months in a state which conforms with our MOS counts as status quo. --Rob Sinden (talk) 11:13, 18 February 2015 (UTC)

Rex Ray[edit]

Good catch there! But I must apologise: I didn't check the talk page, as I should have done, before removing the copyvio and rewriting a mini-stub. That means that your (even stubbier!) rewrite has not been used. I'm sorry about that, it was careless of me. Moving forward, would you like to incorporate anything you want from it into the page, and then blank the temp version - which should then fairly quickly disappear? I'd be grateful. Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 00:49, 20 February 2015 (UTC)

Thanks @Justlettersandnumbers: - I don't think there's much on my stub that isn't included on your version! --Rob Sinden (talk) 08:59, 20 February 2015 (UTC)
OK, thanks. If you clear all content from it, or add {{Db-g7}}, it should gracefully disappear. Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 11:08, 20 February 2015 (UTC)

Serentiy comics[edit]

"In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits..."'

Well, if you looked at my user page or the top of my talk page, you'd see that my account is 10 years old, and has over 105,000 edits to it. In fact, it turned 10 years old four days ago, making it precisely 10 years and four days old. Does this qualify?

Satyricon (album)[edit]

You recently redirected Satyricon_(album) to a disambiguation page. There are still articles that are linked to the redirect that now go to the dab page instead of the article that they should be linked to. Can you go through and clean up the links so they link to the correct article? -- GB fan 00:22, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. Most of these were just from template transclusions, but have null edited those and tidied up the rest. --Rob Sinden (talk) 11:30, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

Re: "English" vs. "English-language" at 2014–15 United States network television schedule[edit]

It's not about language. It's about consistency of each other season articles and I don't find that English-language context is really necessary. It is fine where it's at and it should be left alone. BattleshipMan (talk) 14:55, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

Template:Hilary Duff[edit]

I see what you mean about the filmography link, no problem. Just so you know I am against listing film and TV work in music artist templates, the template should just be about the person's music work, which why I thanked your edit. Many music artist templates have this problem, i.e. Template:Justin Timberlake. QuasyBoy (talk) 15:51, 1 April 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for that @QuasyBoy:. Actor filmographies in templates are a no-no, there's a long standing consensus on this if you're interested. --Rob Sinden (talk) 15:55, 1 April 2015 (UTC)

Nino Rota template[edit]

I was curious as to why you recently deleted the template Nino Rota from the article I due timidi. This seems somewhat illogical since the article itself is included in the template. (I notice that the entire template was formerly considered for deletion.) I do not much care one way or the other - just interested in your reasoning.--14:59, 7 April 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing that out. Heavy-handedness on my part! --Rob Sinden (talk) 15:01, 7 April 2015 (UTC)

Nino Rota Template - "Film Music" Section OK - or Not?[edit]

Copied from the Talk-Page of the Nino Rota Template:

Nino Rota Template - "Film Music" Section OK - or Not?

FWIW - seems that the "Film Music" section containing links to films with music scores composed by Nino Rota in the Nino Rota Template is not ok by one editor - seems the film score to "Romeo and Juliet" is ok - but the film scores to "The Taming of the Shrew" and "War and Peace" (or any of the relevant Fellini Films, like "" and "Juliet of the Spirits") - are not? - Other editors may disagree with this edit deletion of course - After all, according to "WP:OWN", "All Wikipedia content ... is edited collaboratively" - The following listing of films with music scores by Nino Rota was deleted, without discussion, and without noting the exact basis in the WP:MOS and/or WP:POLICY, by "User:Robsinden":

Copied from the April 3, 2015 version of the Nino Rota Template:

Willy nilly editing[edit]

There has been no consensus regarding producer/writer templates. The discussions that you have pointed to have been for the purpose of consensus to delete actor filmographies. If you intend to run around cleaning things up to reflect consensus, lets develop a consensus somewhere. How about having a discussion on whether any roles other than director can have templates?--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 02:56, 10 April 2015 (UTC)

  • From Wikipedia:WikiProject Actors and Filmmakers#Filmography navbox templates: "templates containing filmographies are not supported by this project. Such templates should be nominated for deletion as unusable. Note that filmography navbox templates for work by film directors are not covered by this consensus." Therefore, per this guideline, only director filmographies are acceptable. --Rob Sinden (talk) 08:11, 10 April 2015 (UTC)

List of rail accidents in the United Kingdom[edit]

Thank you for knocking something off my to-do list, namely putting the thing in chronological order. Nthep (talk) 10:04, 14 April 2015 (UTC)

@Nthep: No problem, it looked far more daunting that it was! One problem though - I can't work out why reference 191 is showing outside the table at List of rail accidents in the United Kingdom#1948–1994: British Rail! Any thoughts? --Rob Sinden (talk) 10:07, 14 April 2015 (UTC)
Fixed, I think. It looks like the ref for Hest Bank was mislocated on the line separating rows rather than after the text. Nthep (talk) 10:12, 14 April 2015 (UTC)

Roy Harper Template[edit]

Hi, thanks for your edits. I was wondering where it's stated that other artists aren't to be included in a template? You have directed me to WP:BIDIRECTIONAL, but I haven't read anything there that clarifies this. Stephenjh (talk) 17:51, 15 April 2015 (UTC)

The point with that is that if the artist is included on the template, the same template should be on that artist's page. If you start having multiple loosely related artists on every template, then you end up with WP:TEMPLATECREEP. Best left to the "associated artists" section in the infobox at the top of the page. --Rob Sinden (talk) 08:40, 16 April 2015 (UTC)

"Only director filmographies go in navboxes", can you direct me to where it says that, I've just never heard that before. LADY LOTUSTALK 13:39, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

@Lady Lotus: yes, it's at Wikipedia:WikiProject Actors and Filmmakers#Filmography navbox templates. --Rob Sinden (talk) 13:42, 22 April 2015 (UTC)
Thank you, however it doesn't say his work as producer can't be in there? It doesn't say anything about producers not having their own navbox. Filmography for actors I get, that'd just be too much. LADY LOTUSTALK 13:47, 22 April 2015 (UTC)
It says no filmographies in general, except for directors. And after producers, what about writers, cinematographers, editors, composers, etc., etc? Best to stick to the main creative force - the "auter" of the film. Here's a few recent consensuses: Eva Longoria, Kent Smith, Rosemary Blight, Bill Conti, Lutz and Smith Films & Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby. --Rob Sinden (talk) 13:51, 22 April 2015 (UTC)
I saw the section you opened at WikiProject - "Producer/writer/composer filmography navboxes consensus", so I added a comment there. But I agree on the writers, cinematographers, editors, composers, etc. part - that's just getting too much but producers are just as notable as directors are on a film, they should have a navbox if they have enough credits. But we can finish that discussion there if you'd like :) LADY LOTUSTALK 14:06, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

orphaning[edit]

I see your removing films from bio templates. i am not sure why anyone would do this but Wikipedia:WikiProject Actors and Filmmakers#Filmography navbox templates has noting to do with what your doing..these are not filmography navbox they are bio navboxes. -- Moxy (talk) 18:20, 27 April 2015 (UTC)

Irrelevant. The fact it is a bio navbox doesn't mean that that somehow allows inclusion of filmographies against guidelines. The same principle applies. It says "Navbox templates containing filmographies". If you're confused, discuss it at the project page. And there's very little orphaning involved - If the actors' navboxes are on the film pages, they shouldn't be there anyway. --Rob Sinden (talk) 07:48, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

Louis C.K. template[edit]

Hello, Robsinden. The Louis C.K. template which you're removing information from lists all of his writing and directing credits, like Template:Judd Apatow. It is not listing his acting credits, as your edit summary suggested. -- Wikipedical (talk) 18:52, 7 May 2015 (UTC)

Question[edit]

Why did you remove the directors and produces from Template:The Borgias (2011 TV series), despite the fact that the Rfc shows that there is no consensus for this? Debresser (talk) 22:28, 7 May 2015 (UTC)

We don't include cast and crew in TV series or film series navboxes. I think the RFC you're talking about is for the navboxes for the individuals concerned. --Rob Sinden (talk) 07:47, 8 May 2015 (UTC)
You're right, I did mix up that Rfc about people with navboxes about a series or film. Why wouldn't we have cast and crew in those? Debresser (talk) 19:58, 9 May 2015 (UTC)

Characters tables' heading[edit]

Since you're not going to discuss it, let me briefly comment here. I don't know why you would say "Portrayer is not good English". Just because you don't use the word doesn't mean there's anything wrong with it. And I would say that "portrayed by" is "not good English" in this case. A preposition should not be used at the end of a column heading. --Musdan77 (talk) 15:50, 21 May 2015 (UTC)

Since we've compromised on "actor", not sure what we need to discuss further, but "portrayer" is not in common usage to discuss actors in roles, even though it might *technically* be correct. --Rob Sinden (talk) 15:53, 21 May 2015 (UTC)

I didn't want to interrupt the thread ... this is just a note to say thank you for letting me know you had posted requests for input onto a few projects.
