News reporting[edit]

I just would like to remind editors that we're here to write an encyclopedia, not merely report what's being said in the news, per WP:NOTNEWS. Some additions to "2016 Iraq" and other areas make me wonder about their WP:WEIGHT. Stevie is the man! TalkWork 12:35, 10 February 2017 (UTC)

Well Stevie that is legit and worthy information. The 101st is the most busy unit in the U.S. Army.Fury 1991 (talk) 19:39, 15 May 2017 (UTC)Fury 1991
Only reliably sourced information applied with proper WP:WEIGHT informs us of this, not our personal opinions. I stand by what I said as it is what Wikipedia requires. Stevie is the man! TalkWork 19:46, 15 May 2017 (UTC)
Stevie most of those sources are from mainstream newspapers which fall under those guidelines.Fury 1991 (talk) 00:51, 22 May 2017 (UTC)Fury 1991

Using IMDB as Reference Sources[edit]

I understand that citing IMDB as a reference source raises many questions under Wikipedia:Identifying_reliable_sources. However, under the 'Popular Culture' section of this particular entity, I have not been able to find quality reference sources apart from IMDB. Would it be okay for me to use these here? For example, please have a look at the following:

Would really appreciate it if someone could help me out with this. Honestly, the instructions on the Wikipedia:Citing IMDb page were not so clear for me to understand whether the usage of these URLs as references was appropriate. — Preceding unsigned comment added by FlyingBlueDream (talkcontribs) 10:50, 22 May 2017 (UTC)

Having absolutely no editorial oversight and vetting, sites such as IMDB are not reliable and cannot be used as a reference/source in the article body. If there is not a notable source for inclusion in that section, that item should be removed per the Manual of Style, specifically regarding original research and reliable sources. You'll find most of the "Pop culture" sections are magnets for trivia and the trivial, which have no place in an encyclopedic article. It's a constant battle to keep such sections gleaned to the notable inclusions. I actually removed a bunch of this trivial dreck a while ago, but it was reverted back by @Fury 1991: with no improvements whatsoever.
Hope that helps. GenQuest "Talk to Me" 15:09, 22 May 2017 (UTC).
