Amazon rankings[edit]

At the moment, there's a sentence under home release reading: "At Amazon.com the DVDs had average daily rankings of between 1st and 75th in 2003, 22nd and 397th in 2004, 2nd and 232nd in 2005, and 2nd and 31st in 2006 as of June 27, 2006." It cites the FireflyFans.net fansite (archive of the source). Really, is it so important the article list Amazon.com rankings, archival or not? Regardless, it's being sourced by a fansite, so it can't really be kept unless another source is found for it. Unless someone wants to go through and use all 306 Archive.org captures of the Amazon listing between August 22, 2007 and October 5, 2014. ~Cheers, TenTonParasol 01:44, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

I'm removing the source and the associated sentence, so the page will be without Amazon rankings unless a proper source can be found for it. ~Cheers, TenTonParasol 14:04, 17 April 2015 (UTC)

Orphaned references in Firefly (TV series)[edit]

I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of Firefly (TV series)'s orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

Reference named "BuzzFeed":

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT 06:45, 17 April 2015 (UTC)

Nonlinear narrative?[edit]

I just reverted in good faitj @Gonzalogallard: adding the category for nonlinear narrative television (or what it was--mobile and dying battery, so I can't check easily). The narrative, as far as I can tell, is wholly linear when it's in its intended order. I'm just curious about the reasoning for the addition to the cat. Perhaps I'm missing something? ~Cheers, TenTonParasol 01:06, 4 October 2015 (UTC) ~Cheers, TenTonParasol 01:06, 4 October 2015 (UTC)

I understand the episode Out of Gas features nonlinear narrative. However, I can see why one could think the category is not appropriate. Maybe having only one nonlinear episode doesn't make the series nonlinear, but the way I see it, it should, simply because the narrative of the series as a whole is disrupted even if it's only for one episode.
