Semi-protected edit request on 6 December 2018[edit]

Footnote 25 goes to a dead page, I found an active link to the same article: https://news.artnet.com/market/warhol-dollar-bill-32-million-sothebys-london-313632 Tiggertiffin87 (talk) 18:09, 6 December 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing out the dead link and finding a substitute. I found an archive of the original link here, but, to my surprise, it had nothing to do with the content of the preceding paragraph, so I've just removed the ref entirely. Thanks for drawing attention to it! A2soup (talk) 10:50, 7 December 2018 (UTC)

comment[edit]

Warhol directed, and had a cameo role in, Hello Again (The Cars song) video in 1984… shouldn't it be in his article somewhere? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2600:1700:F3C0:F170:5149:4B56:96BE:F044 (talk) 02:56, 18 January 2019 (UTC)

Specious justification?[edit]

How is the justification I made for the change to the article specious? Really, I wonder why that section of the article read that way in the first place, can whoever first wrote it comment?--Myrtonos (talk) 13:23, 26 June 2019 (UTC)

Myrtonos (talk · contribs) I was not involved in writing this section, but agree with FreeKnowledgeCreator (talk · contribs) that your edit is unecessary and your stated reasons for changing the word not compelling. Gay is not slang or an informal synonym for homosexual. It is an independent term in wide use in everyday speech, the news media, scholarly works and Supreme Court decisions. There are, as you say, senses of "gay" that do not describe same-sex attraction, but the sense used in the article is the most recent, and by far the most widely understood meaning. You are (of course) entitled to your perspective on these questions. But making a minor change to a longstanding passage in an article based on your word preference without otherwise improving or expanding the article is not constructive editing.

Do you mean that the basis for reverting has nothing to do with an intrinsic preference?--Myrtonos (talk) 05:09, 28 June 2019 (UTC)
I have no idea. I concur with the reversion and reasoning. KR26740 (talk) 20:47, 28 June 2019 (UTC)

So do you intrinsically prefer the way it read before or not? I'm not saying 'gay' is exactly slang, but that 'homosexual' is just a little more formal, especially as it has had that meaning for longer. Also, English has hardly changed at all since 'gay' came to have that meaning, except on the level of slang.--Myrtonos (talk) 01:54, 29 June 2019 (UTC) P.S The first section on sexuality was added by an anon user back in 2006.

I have had no reply so FreeKnowledgeCreator (talk · contribs) do you intrinsically prefer how to read before the edit? Besides, I don't think it was based on my word preferences, just what seems better suited to formal writing, check out other encyclopedias.--Myrtonos (talk) 01:09, 2 July 2019 (UTC)

Still no reply, can anyone here comprehend the words 'intrinsic preference'? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Myrtonos (talkcontribs) 03:58, 6 July 2019 (UTC)

Sorry for the unsigned comment, however, I am tempted to revert if there is no reply, look at it as if it had the word 'homosexual' in the first place.--Myrtonos (talk) 02:56, 9 July 2019 (UTC)

Having had no reply, it turns out that someone made the change back in March 2012, also without otherwise improving or expanding the article, claiming that the term is outdated.--Myrtonos (talk) 21:44, 10 July 2019 (UTC)

Andy Warhol as an Actor in The Movie Blank Generation (1978)[edit]

A movie by Ulli Lommel, it's missing in the article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by HighwayDealer (talkcontribs) 17:35, 13 July 2019 (UTC)

This article focuses on Warhol's films as director and producer. He made a few appearances as an actor (such as The Love Boat) but acting was never a major aspect of his career. We can't mention everything he did in his life. IMDB and other sources lists his full filmography. freshacconci (✉) 13:10, 14 July 2019 (UTC)
