Is this biography?[edit]

Maybe I'm missing something here, but this article is about the fictional character. Aren't the biography tags mistaken? Mattnad 18:14, 21 April 2007 (UTC)

Yes they are; it's because the article was incorrectly placed in the Living people category. That's been fixed now, and I'll remove the tag. --kingboyk 18:37, 23 April 2007 (UTC)


If it is quite alright with everyone, I'm going to remove the "WHO IS BRIDGET JONES???" source. Seeing as this is the English bit of Wikipedia and the page is slow to load and in an entirely different language, I feel it is time to say goodbye to it. Vaguely 18:32, 24 May 2007 (UTC)

Amending myself, for some reason I was directed to another page entirely. I checked it again and this time I see it is a proper source. Ignore me, just passing through. Vaguely 18:34, 24 May 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Bridget Jones.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Bridget Jones.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 Wikipedia articles 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 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 uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 16:41, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

Merger of Mark Darcy[edit]

I am currently working on the article Pride and Prejudice (1995 TV serial), and have researched its connections to Bridget Jones, which are quite significant. I still feel that Mark Darcy is not particularly notable in himself, especially when we take away his relation(s) to Bridget Jones and P&P. Daniel Cleaver, who has just as much significance as Mark in the story and is also played by a famous actor, doesn't have his own article either. I therefore propose to merge Mark Darcy into Bridget Jones. His article is already as in-depth as it can probably be real-world-wise; most future additions would be plot (WP:NOT#PLOT and WP:UNDUE, currently not a problem), and I am not a big fan of perma-stubs. Any opposition before I go ahead? – sgeureka tc 15:13, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

Merged (although I only really merged the one sentence about the reallife barrister; the rest was copy-pasted-and-tweaked from Pride and Prejudice (1995 TV serial)#Bridget Jones). – sgeureka tc 13:48, 22 June 2008 (UTC)

Fictional columnist?[edit]

I feel I should check this out with others who are more familiar with the book, but to start with "fictional columnist" implies that she is a columnist within the fiction, which I don't think she is - the diary is secret. Billwilson5060 (talk) 19:56, 3 January 2011 (UTC)
