Articles that could be merged[edit]

Current articles Merge into Comments
Alien (film) These articles consist mostly of in-universe explanations and excessive fair-use images. They either have no sources or only primary sources, and amount to little more than fancruft and plot summaries. They should be merged into sections on the main film article explaining the film's development and special effects in a manner consistent with WP:WAF.
These articles consist mostly of in-universe explanations and excessive fair-use images. They either have no sources or only primary sources, and amount to little more than fancruft and plot summaries. They should be merged into sections on the main film article explaining the film's development and special effects, or the character list article, in a manner consistent with WP:WAF.
Alien (film series) The article is unreferenced and consists mostly of in-universe explanations. It amounts to little more than fancruft and plot summary. It should be merged into a section on the film series discussing elements of the series' fictional universe and recurring plot elements in a manner consistent with WP:WAF.
Predator (alien) These articles consist mostly of in-universe explanations and excessive fair-use images. They have only primary sources, and amount to little more than fancruft and plot summaries. They should be merged into sections in the article about the creature, explaining its development and special effects in a manner consistent with WP:WAF.

Articles to be moved[edit]

Please see each article's talk page to support or object.

Excuse me, but I believe File:Anguish.jpg, "Anguish.jpg" needs a renaming as the filename is misleading and not particularly encyclopedic. See the image page for the suggestion, which has apparently been there for a while without any action being taken. I would have done the renaming myself, but I have no idea how.

Ugh, sorry I couldn't get a simple wiki link. I kept getting red links, and the only way I could find to get this in here was to stick it in as a picture. Can someone please fix my post and then rename the file? --00:26, 26 February 2009 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Pstanton (talkcontribs) 00:26, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

I agree (I'm the one who marked the file for renaming). Unfortunately I think that Template:Rename media must be deprecated, because I tagged it in October and no bot or "trusted user" has come along to rename it. There is no "move" option for files, so I don't know how to go about renaming it other than saving and and re-uploading it under a new name, replacing the uses, then marking the old file for deletion as orphaned. But since it doesn't seem to have sufficient source info (was it found on a website? It's a screenshot, but who took it?) I don't feel comfortable doing that. --IllaZilla (talk) 02:09, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

Articles being reviewed[edit]

Reassessed as Start-class. Coming along, but relies almost entirely on 1 source. No need to worry about this one right now. The game is still in development and I'm sure more source material will become available as the release date gets closer and reviews, etc. start being published. --IllaZilla (talk) 16:46, 27 March 2008 (UTC)
