WP:LEAD
  • The LEAD is suppose to be a summary of the main body. All content in the LEAD should be in the main body in greater detail. However, the divorce is not mentioned in the main body. Check for all facts in the LEAD that they are in the main body.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 06:01, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
It is mentioned now. Taylor Trescott - my talk + my edits 23:57, 19 December 2013 (UTC)
Early life
  • English degree s/b Bachelors of this or that (probably art) degree, majoring in English. (English Literature or English Composition).--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 05:50, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
OK, the source just says "degree", so I went with that to avoid OR. Taylor Trescott - my talk + my edits 23:57, 19 December 2013 (UTC)
Career and later life
  • Writing, probably (a freelancer isn't confined to one job). I linked freelance to avoid confusion. Taylor Trescott - my talk + my edits 23:57, 19 December 2013 (UTC)
  • You are right. The IMDB is a bit weird; there's a different Chris Sheridan who made a documentary which won some awards, but for some reason the IMDB clumps them with his. Had to be careful when source searching. Taylor Trescott - my talk + my edits 23:57, 19 December 2013 (UTC)
  • If you are going to add a divorce to this section, you need to say that at some point there was another person who he got married to. When I meant add divorce to the main body, I don't mean the word. Give us some context.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 20:53, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
  • Gave as much context as possible; there's not much about it in the sources as he's not a really public person. Taylor Trescott - my talk + my edits 23:57, 19 December 2013 (UTC)
Filmography
External links
Images
  • Can't really think of any that wouldn't be superfluous. There are no free pics of him; we'll just have to wait until he finally shows up at a ComicCon. Taylor Trescott - my talk + my edits 23:57, 19 December 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for taking this up. I've started some fixes, but I might not be able to finish this for another day or so. Rest assured it will get done before a week. Taylor Trescott - my talk + my edits 20:45, 3 December 2013 (UTC)

Added filmography section; will work on seeing if the awards need to be updated. Taylor Trescott - my talk + my edits 01:13, 11 December 2013 (UTC)

  • Sorry I haven't been responsive. I've been away and haven't had much time for serious article writing. I'll try and squeeze in some time to work on this, but I make no guarantees. Taylor Trescott - my talk + my edits 01:23, 18 December 2013 (UTC)
    • If you haven't gotten to it within the next 7 days or so, I might just close it. You can renominate it at a time in the future when you think you will be able to respond to concerns. You might be well served to address the issues above before renominating though.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 04:18, 18 December 2013 (UTC)
Great job! I am going to Pass this now.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 00:40, 30 December 2013 (UTC)
