Are images okay on bio pages? -- sugarfish 05:26 16 Jul 2003 (UTC)
- They should be, with proper attestation. Fire Star 05:51, 24 Aug 2004 (UTC)
Link in info box
It doesn't seem right to me to have the link to the web site in the info box. It is already listed in the external list section. Info boxes should only link to original websites. I am not saying it is a bad website - far from infact - but it doesn't belong there since it makes it seems as if it is his official website which it isn't. MartinDK 19:24, 9 November 2006 (UTC)
Fair use rationale for Image:Bottom001.jpg
Image:Bottom001.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.
Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.
If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. BetacommandBot (talk) 04:44, 12 February 2008 (UTC)
Right on both counts. It is both him and someone who sounds like him, ie him.
For a start, this is very non-encyclopoedic language. It's also untrue. From somewhere in the second series Vyvyan offers this critique of the two main characters in The Good Life: "They're nothing but a couple of reactionary stereotypes, confirming the myth that everyone in England is a lovable middle-class eccentric". This is a **** sight more intelligent than anything anybody else ever says in the series. If you think Vyvyan is dumb you either a) haven't watched the series or b) have very high standards.
When Ade plays opposite Rik M he always makes the RM character look stupid, with the possible exception of the Dangerous Brothers.
Difficulty in working with Mayall
The passage about Edmondson going off working with Mayall on Bottom was a bit unclear. I deleted a line about one of them stopping drinking as it was ambiguous as to which it was, but if anyone can find a reference and word it clearly it should go back in Rankersbo (talk) 16:19, 18 March 2009 (UTC)
Contentious unsourced content
Some of the content can be sourced to The Daily Mirror 1 December 2004, "Ade: It's Time for Rick and I to Split", Barbara Davies. Of course the Mirror is hardly the newspaper of record, but there's the info FWIW. Rich Farmbrough, 02:16, 16 January 2012 (UTC).

Wish I could have a long career playing the same role over and over and over just changing the names. Not even his character. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 14:32, 23 September 2013 (UTC)
