“In popular culture” section[edit]

On August 8 of 2008 the whole section was deleted with a comment about how it's “not because it's trivia, but because it's unsourced”. So several questions arise about it:

  • shouldn't there be source-request tags first, before deletion?
  • if the problem is only with sources, would it be ok to recover the section (or its parts) with additional source refs where needed?
  • higher on this page there was already a little talk on similar issue, where as an argument was used the Wikipedia:TRIVIA style guideline. I guess it was meant to be linked to this page, so I'll ask about the latter one. It says, that in case of passing mentions there should be included refs of significance, so at least in cases with poetry, song and children's book the whale mention is not a passing one.

So, I need help with sorting this all out. Thanks. DaemonDice (talk) 02:09, 29 July 2011 (UTC)

A new incident in Faroe Islands[edit] — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:21, 26 November 2013 (UTC)

I added the KVF footage via the "External Media" template to the bottom of the article, along with the same footage from the Huffington Post. The HP footage is easier to download, has English text in the story, and has a title that warns those with queasy stomachs 2 times. Hopefully this won't surprise anybody who has read to the bottom of the article. Smallbones(smalltalk) 03:22, 4 December 2013 (UTC)

Why is there no link to the Oregon Video?[edit]

Just curious... there is a whole paragraph about it and yet when links are added to the video we have people delete the links. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:09, 26 July 2014 (UTC)
