I'm New[edit]

I recently joined this project because I'm an avid reader and bookworm and my favorite part of the story has never been the plot but the characters. I looked at oour goals but I'm still a little confused on what we're supposed to be doing. If someone could drop a hint it would be really helpful. Thanks!!!(PythonessofDelphi🐍 (talk) 18:48, 15 March 2015 (UTC))

The most important point to remember is that all articles on fictional characters should be written from a real world point of view. A character's role in a novel/film/television series should be explained in context, and not rely too much on in-universe minutaie. (The in-universe perspective is more suited to external wikis). Information on the development of the character should also be included to prove notablity and cited to a reliable source. It is also useful to include information on how the character has been recieved by critics, the media, and the public.
For Writing about fiction wp:WAF gives many pointers. You might also want to check out some of the exemplary articles on the project page. If you see an article you think you can improve the best approach is just to be bold and start editing. Any other questions ask away! Eshlare (talk) 13:38, 16 March 2015 (UTC)

Recreation of Joey Rainbow[edit]

I've spoken to Cirt, the deleter of said article three years earlier and I have been working on it in my userspace for a while and feel it is ready to go as I now have several sources with a large development section and he has no objection but did advise me to consult a few wikiprojects before proceeding. Is anyone opposed to this? Conquistador2k6Talk to me, Dammit!

Proposed deletion of Maggie Barnes (Dallas)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Maggie Barnes (Dallas) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

WP:N - no mention of notability; nonnotable secondary TV soap opera character

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. (talk)

WikiProject X icon.svg

Hello everyone!

You may have received a message from me earlier asking you to comment on my WikiProject X proposal. The good news is that WikiProject X is now live! In our first phase, we are focusing on research. At this time, we are looking for people to share their experiences with WikiProjects: good, bad, or neutral. We are also looking for WikiProjects that may be interested in trying out new tools and layouts that will make participating easier and projects easier to maintain. If you or your WikiProject are interested, check us out! Note that this is an opt-in program; no WikiProject will be required to change anything against its wishes. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!

Note: To receive additional notifications about WikiProject X on this talk page, please add this page to Wikipedia:WikiProject X/Newsletter. Otherwise, this will be the last notification sent about WikiProject X.
