Retrofitted[edit]

? How is LA retrofitted? Even if it was in the "original lead", it's not correct and clearly original research. Walter Görlitz (talk) 16:34, 2 November 2017 (UTC)

Once again—the term was already present in the lead, and your edits haven't even rectified this. Here's a random google excerpt: "David Snyder, during the building of Blade Runner’s elaborate street set — a re-dressing of a New York street set dubbed Ridleytown — Scott showed up to inspect the work. The team had worked for months to create the sort of dense, retrofitted industrial look that Scott had in mind." [1] gentlecollapse6 (talk) 16:38, 2 November 2017 (UTC)
And here's an article discussing it. Not hard: "Retrofitting "Blade Runner": Issues in Ridley Scott's "Blade Runner" and Philip K. Dick's "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?"" by Judith B. Kerman [2] gentlecollapse6 (talk) 16:40, 2 November 2017 (UTC)
User talk:Walter Görlitz Considering your only problems seemed to be with the inclusion of "retrofitted" in the lead, I'm confused by your leaving it in. You, however, keep reverting other changes that you haven't even addressed, including the movement of sentences to paragraphs where they occupy a more logical space. Can you explain any of this to me? gentlecollapse6 (talk) 17:11, 2 November 2017 (UTC)
My concern is not with the use of the term, it's with the correct use of the term. Did you even read what I wrote? I am reverting your other changes because it's easier to address as a unit. If you'd rather I fix smaller units, make your edits over longer periods of time. I won't report you for breaking 3RR, but I can't vouch that others won't.
