PLEASE stop reverting the edits correcting Mark's birth year. He was born in 1958, not 1964. He used 1964 as a "fake" birth year, as many actors and actresses do, to make himself appear younger than he really was.
Quoted directly from Mark: "We have changed it a million times as have many others but everytime there is a quote about me..they use that reference and back comes 1964..Like I said a long time ago 02 13 1964 was my fake actor age when I was young...I want to keep my years as they were mine..I lived them and the story flow is important in my life.."
This topic comes up frequently on his Facebook pages:
In regards to the claim that Facebook is not a verifiable source, please reference http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:SOCIALMEDIA#Self-published_and_questionable_sources_as_sources_on_themselves:
"Self-published or questionable sources as sources on themselves
"Self-published and questionable sources may be used as sources of information about themselves, usually in articles about themselves or their activities, without the self-published source requirement that they be published experts in the field, so long as: the material is neither unduly self-serving nor an exceptional claim; it does not involve claims about third parties; it does not involve claims about events not directly related to the source; there is no reasonable doubt as to its authenticity; the article is not based primarily on such sources.
"This policy also applies to pages on social networking websites such as Twitter, Tumblr, and Facebook."
So, knock it off or I'll start report the reverts as vandalism.
Can anyone verify the birthyear? It was recently changed by an anon editor. The change appears plausible but many of the other contributions made by users of this IP address have been vandalism. Pending verification, I am commenting out the birthyear. Rossami (talk) 21:14, 6 September 2006 (UTC)
I follow Mark Patton on his personal Instagram page and he posted videos and photos of him today September 22, talking about his birthday celebrations. He even said it's his birthday today. So with consensus and review of his Instagram paged I'd like to request that his birthday be changed to September 22, 1964. His Instagram page is called markpattonnoes2 if someone would wish to check. Mzimmerle (talk) 03:26, 23 September 2017 (UTC)
