Talk page[edit]

You didn't have to delete the talk page.… JarlaxleArtemis 22:55, 6 January 2006 (UTC)

The talk page did not exist. Zach (Smack Back) Fair use policy 22:55, 6 January 2006 (UTC)
Ah. Good point. JarlaxleArtemis 22:56, 6 January 2006 (UTC)
But if the talk page did get whacked, i'll restore it. But, frankly, I am keeping an eye on this page and Eve Plumb, since personal details, such as home adrress and phone number was inserted, and I have to delete the page each time to flush out the history.

Dead people?[edit]

I noticed this in the "Dead People" category, so I removed it...he's still alive, as far as all records go. -User:SaraJaye

Wedding date[edit]

On this page, his wedding date is listed as May 27, 2006. But on Adrianne Curry, it's listed as May 29, 2006. Which is correct? --Lc 04 00:32, 26 July 2006 (UTC)

Photo[edit]

Can somebody find a similar--but better quality--recent photo of Knight for the Bio Box?

Celebrity Paranormal Project[edit]

He was on the season premiere of the Celebrity Paranormal Project. should we put that on there? 130.13.114.171 22:54, 19 December 2006 (UTC)

Dirt[edit]

Chris and his wife also appeared in an episode of the FX original 'Dirt,' where they were B-list celebrities trying to get back into the national spotlight. Their part (only the one show) was a joke about their real life status, and they tried to get into the Dirt Now magazine by creating a fantastic sex scandal to be coordinated by Lucy Spiller (Courtney Cox).

"Loose"?[edit]

I believe that they loose control of their base.

I'd like to suggest that this be changed to "lose" which is correct. Can someone who knows that this quote wasn't mis-typed by Mr. Knight (and thus, should be left alone) consider doing this? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ppayne (talkcontribs) 09:01, 3 May 2008 (UTC)

Chris on the Dr Phil Show[edit]

I just saw him on the Dr Phil show. --88.115.170.102 (talk) 14:06, 21 June 2010 (UTC)

Celebrity Ghost Stories[edit]

He has appeared on this show "Celebrity Ghost Stories" on the Biography Channel —Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.215.109.128 (talk) 03:16, 9 December 2010 (UTC)

Requested move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: Page moved by proposer before discussion closed. R'n'B (call me Russ) 10:18, 25 July 2011 (UTC)



– As there are Many Christopher Knight(s) in the world with signifigance which should be documented, I would suggest we place this individual as his Full name "Christopher Anton Knight" and then have a disambiguous page for "Christopher Knight" This way you are better able to allow the researcher who is looking for Christopher Knight to find the individual they are looking for, rather than being locked into only one article AKnight2B (talk) 12:34, 24 July 2011 (UTC)

  • Oppose adding the middle name, because that is not how he is best known (see Wikipedia:COMMONNAME). If you really think this person is not the primary topic, then adding "(actor)" (in lower case, not mixed case as in the proposal) would be better.
    Please note:
    • As is standard practice on pages that are the primary topic of a disambiguation, there is a hat note at the top of Christopher Knight directing readers to the dab page in case this is not the page they were looking for.
    • If this change is made, then everything that currently links to Christopher Knight and does mean the actor should be checked and changed to point to the new page.
  • Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 15:57, 24 July 2011 (UTC)
  • Comment. It's hard to select between "support" and "oppose" here. I oppose a move to the middle name variant, but I support a move to the disambiguated title (lower case).
    Btw, this is not a multiple move.
    Btw2: are you in any way related to Christopher Knight? I ask because if so, edits (etc) should be avoided from a WP:COI point of view. HandsomeFella (talk) 17:18, 24 July 2011 (UTC)
  • Comment. AKnight2B went ahead and moved the article anyway. Jenks24 (talk) 08:07, 25 July 2011 (UTC)

Vandalism?[edit]

I removed this: <<redacted, we don't need to keep this on the talk page either>> because there was no source, it was posted under "Computer Career", sounded absolutely ridiculous, and I couldn't find any sources on my own (though, due to the previously mentioned ridiculousness, I didn't search hard at all). Just thought I'd leave this here, because I don't know what proper procedure is or whatever. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.13.41.13 (talk) 07:46, 20 August 2011 (UTC)

 Done You followed it by removing the text. Thanks! VQuakr (talk) 08:37, 20 August 2011 (UTC)

Requested move 2[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: not moved. Favonian (talk) 17:41, 10 February 2012 (UTC)


– The actor is the primary topic. I did research; the actor is the popular search term, and he has over 60,000 within last 90 days. Other disambiguated titles are less popular to search. George Ho (talk) 07:32, 3 February 2012 (UTC)

  • Oppose: There's more to WP:PRIMARY than just search stats. Does this Christopher Knight have more long-term significance than any other? I'd say our default position for biographies should be to disambiguate, if only to save arguing over who is the more famous. Moonraker12 (talk) 12:37, 4 February 2012 (UTC)
Also, this page was subject to a request move six months ago; why is it being brought up again so soon? Moonraker12 (talk) 12:40, 4 February 2012 (UTC)
I have no opinion on the merits of this request, but a valid reason for raising the issue so soon could be that the previous proposal was closed after the nominator had jumped the gun and moved the article. There was no clear consensus on the issue of primary topic. Favonian (talk) 13:30, 4 February 2012 (UTC)
Good point; I still should have know it was discussed before. Anyway, I know that he is a popular search term, and I felt that he meets such guidelines because... the actor does appearance, mostly to pay tributes to his appearances as Peter Brady. --George Ho (talk) 13:36, 4 February 2012 (UTC)
Favonian: Thanks for the explanation; I'm still a bit confused, though. If the previous nominator moved the page in spite of the due process, was it moved back to the original title, and are we now discussing the merits of the move proposal again? Or is it having to go through a RM in order to revert a fait accompli? Moonraker12 (talk) 20:50, 4 February 2012 (UTC)
  • Oppose -- mere temporary popularity does not make a subject primary. None of the subjects on the dabpage is obvious primary; so the dabpage should be. Peterkingiron (talk) 19:34, 4 February 2012 (UTC)

Birthdate[edit]

Din anyone notice that the birthdate mentioned in the introductory passage is different than that in the infobox? Someone please investigate-109.100.70.210 (talk) 12:41, 2 April 2012 (UTC)

Deleted "Computer Career" section[edit]

The section labeled "Computer Career" had no citations and had been marked as such for 3 years. The content itself had been there since at least 2007. I tried to find details for it, but all I could find on Mr. Knight's career in computers in an Internet search were articles written after 2007 that used the exact same wording as the Wikipedia article. To cite those websites would be to perpetrate citogenesis without solving the core problem of where this information came from in the first place. Since this is a biography of a living person, I chose to delete this section with no further warning. If anyone wishes to replace this section, he or she should be sure to find legitimate sources. — Preceding unsigned comment added by ShiftlessOtaku (talkcontribs) 21:17, 6 January 2013 (UTC)
