Tina May biographical stub - Help?[edit]

Hello, I am Tina May's son and was trying to modify her wikipedia page as subsequent edits have reduced it to a stub. There is pertinent professional information missing (awards, recordings) which leave the notability of the page at an innaccurate level of specificity. Literally the last ten years are missing. I hoped to solicit any assistence in editing the page as I am not myself experienced in the wiki-format. My meagre attempts would be rather akin to a bull-in-a-china-shop. Any such help or pointers would be welcome. (Tina May) — Preceding unsigned comment added by TinaMay1961 (talkcontribs) 17:30, July 4, 2012‎ (UTC)

Jack Soifer deserves to remain in Wikipedia[edit]

Jack Soifer, I'm sure that is a very good professional. He has goods books published and I've read all them. Besides, her activities as a International Consultant during long years in several countries. I'm a former Economist Chief from BNDES (1965-1981) and I was President of Federal Economic Order(1985) and President of Regional Economic Order(1986-87) in Rio de Janeiro. In "Universidade Federal Fluminense"(UFF) I was Full Professor many years and Director of Plannig in Secretary of Transport Rio de Janeiro-DETRO (1987). I think that Mr. Jack Soifer deserves to remain, because I know his professional activities and his excellent capacity to make works in areas such tourism, small and middle business and others relevant,that can see on his published books, for instance, and his Conferences, Seminars, etc. in European countries.

MG Irving also commanded 38th Infantry Division[edit]

MG Irving was the last combatant commander nof the 38th Infantry Division during WWII in the Philippines, and was commanding the 38th Infantry Division when the Japanese in the area surrendered.

Michael Calvin McGee[edit]

Hello all, I am writing to ask for your opinions on the changes that i am making to the page of rhetorical theorist Michael Calvin McGee.

I figured I would give you all a chance to see the page first before i made my changes so I wont be making it live until Monday. Thanks all!

Immanuel Sekaran Guru Pooja[edit]

I believe that everyone in the democratic India have the right to practice their beliefs without disturbing others and in the public. Immanuel Sekaran Guru Pooja in Sivagangai District is one such event. Event he government respects the feelings of the local and declares a local holiday. Why then are Principals of schools like Velammal in Thiruppuvanam are talking against them and creating hurt feelings and misconceptions in the minds of the younger generation? Do not the students have the right to take their own decisions?

The usage of Madonna is up for discussion at Talk:Madonna_(entertainer)#Requested_move_8 where it is requested that the singer's article be moved to "Madonna". -- 65.94.171.126 (talk) 05:25, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

Schön scandal[edit]

See talk:Schön scandal on whether the article should be about the scandal or the man, and thus the name of the article would be changed. -- 65.94.171.126 (talk) 04:19, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

Anglicising names of nobles[edit]

There's a significant number of articles about historical nobles whose names in the article title have been anglicised (many examples in Category:House of Hohenzollern, such as Charles Frederick Albert, Margrave of Brandenburg-Schwedt (Karl Friedrich Albrecht) or John Christopher, Count of Hohenzollern-Haigerloch (Johann Christoph)). I would have thought we should be using ther own-language names, unless there's clear evidence that they're widely known by the anglicised form. There will be some such cases - clearly Frederick the Great is much more often used than "Friedrich Wilhelm II" or "Friedrich der Große" - but I doubt that applies to most of them.

Boldface for Leading Roles[edit]

Heya WikiProject! I'm noticing more often lately that that some articles about actors (most commonly in articles about actors who do voice over work for anime) tend to list leading roles in boldface. There was an edit war at Michelle Ruff a few days ago over this, with one IP user arguing that a few other articles used this convention. I found another today at Yuri Lowenthal. This sort of content seems problematic to me for a number of reasons: 1) MOS:BOLD 2) Attributing "leading roles" seems like OR to me, in the way that describing someone as an "antagonist" is considered OR. See WP:ANTAGONIST 3) Most of these lists are unsourced anyway, so we're relying on someone's recollection of the importance of the role to determine "lead". 4) Wikipedia is not IMDb, so only notable roles should be included anyway. 5) Trivia. 6) Christopher Lee is one of the most prolific modern actors, and his filmography doesn't draw special attention to roles considered "lead". I went through the Yuri Lowenthal article and removed the unnecessary bolding, which was reverted quickly by a user who explained cryptically, "this is nothing related to him, so don't change it." I'd love to get some comments from the biography community about this. (Note: I have raised this question at WikiProject Anime & Manga as well.) Much obliged, Cyphoidbomb (talk) 16:54, 15 July 2014 (UTC)

Addendum According to editor Calathan, this has been dealt with before: Wikipedia_talk:Manual_of_Style/Archive_134#Bolding_of_major_roles, Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Anime_and_manga/Archive_55#Bolding_of_major_roles. I withdraw my query. Thanks, Cyphoidbomb (talk) 15:00, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

Portrait of Catherine Talbot in Catherine Talbot Article.[edit]

From the appearance of other images of Catherine Talbot, her social status during her youth, and her reticence when it came to involvement in the public sphere, I have my doubts that the Christian Friedrich Zincke miniature attached to the 'Catherine Talbot' article actually represents her. There is no detail given on the image apart from artist, so I am unable to trace who exactly is being represented, but I doubt that it is in fact Talbot, if it is would it be possible for Mr Arkesteijn to provide some more information on the picture, and if not then may I ask that it be taken down, as it is misleading and presents a false image of Talbot's status, by implying that in her youth she was circulating in the kind of fashionable circles that would have been a prerequisite to sitting for such a portrait. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 90.192.106.137 (talk) 11:48, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

Any concerns about the article should be discussed on the article's talk page, Talk:Catherine Talbot. GB fan 12:07, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi‎ "caliph" of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS)[edit]

Eyes needed at Laura Mersini-Houghton[edit]

There's what seems to be some sort of POV editing going on at Laura Mersini-Houghton by a fluctuating IP editor. By their own admission they are not a native English speaker, and as far as I can tell they don't really understand the original research policy, despite my attempts to explain it. I don't want it to turn into a back-and-forth edit war here, so I think the best thing to do is to get a few extra eyes on the article to establish a proper consensus. The discussion is here.

James S. A. Corey is a pair of co-authors Daniel Abraham (author) and Ty Franck. The lead sentence, footer (template {{Personata}}?), talk page (living person?), and James S. A. Corey at Wikidata (human, male?) may need attention by someone who knows all the relevant policies.
