Untitled[edit]

Stephan is David's half brother, not his uncle. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Victoriasleep (talkcontribs) 05:34, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

Phil Nail[edit]

There is quite a valid reason I changed David Platt's Coronation Street page - the information was completely incorrect! I have been watching the January, February, March episodes and it was Phil the podiatrist, not "Sun Hill dectective Ted Roach" - that's a character from The Bill! It is very clearly the character of Phil Nail. I have to change it back for the sake of anyone who wants it to be reasonably correct. Moreover some of the grammar appeared to be wrong.

Bonfire Night Section & Friends Section[edit]

I recently edited the bonfire night section and included it as 2.11 as opposed to a whole new section, I also added Amber, Mel and Craig Harris as his friends, am unsure whether to add Rosie webster so it can be removed if wished. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 89.242.73.136 (talk) 18:43, 9 November 2007 (UTC)

Sadistic Psycopath[edit]

In the Overview section, I do not know that it is technically correct (i.e., kosher as per the DSM4) to call David a “sadistic psycopath”. SpikeToronto (talk) 09:44, 22 December 2007 (UTC)

I have re-worded the sentence that referred to David as a “sadistic psychopath” since that is a DSM-IV diagnosis which the character has yet to receive onscreen. If one could point to an independent article in which the writer indicated that a trained psychologist or psychiatrist felt that that would be an appropriate diagnosis, then the phrase, “sadistic psychopath,” would be appropriate, accompanied by that independent citation. Of course, if a trained shrink on the show diagnosed him as such, the phrase, “sadistic psychopath,” would be also appropriate. Moreover, David has never truly acted sadistic, as defined in the DSM-IV. Nor has he ever truly acted as someone possessed of diagnosable psychopathy, as defined in the DSM-IV. — SpikeToronto (talk) 01:45, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

Criticism (solved)[edit]

In the Criticism section, there are no citations given. Were citations given, then the wikiauthor would appear to merely be reporting on the controversy that exists. For example, an in-line, external link to a discussion on a fan forum might suffice. However, without citations, this section has the appearance of presenting only one fan’s opinion, that of the wikiauthor’s. SpikeToronto (talk) 09:38, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

Found a link to the POV. Dewarw (talk) 23:54, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

Update now solved[edit]

Have sourced the other claim. Problem solved. Dewarw (talk) 00:00, 5 January 2008 (UTC)

Personality and identity[edit]

Isn't the personality and identity section WP:POV? It doesn't include any citations and describes a view of the character. GrahamCrusty (talk) 08:22, 31 August 2011 (UTC)

Yes, unless the points can be sourced, then it should be deleted.GunGagdinMoan 20:27, 31 August 2011 (UTC)
  • As should the "Storylines" section. Excessive WP:PLOT violation. --Hammersoft (talk) 21:17, 31 August 2011 (UTC)
Yes, a major condense is called for in the Storylines. The whole page needs a revamp.GunGagdinMoan 21:19, 31 August 2011 (UTC)
Could you guys check out the discussion here which involves POV? GrahamCrusty (talk) 21:40, 31 August 2011 (UTC)

Daughter[edit]

Article says not to add Lily as his daughter as the outcome has yet to be aired, but the outcome has leaked and can be reliably sourced, so it's fair game. –anemoneprojectors– 16:27, 25 September 2013 (UTC)
