Motion to change the first sentence of the second paragraph from "Though not the first fictional detective, Sherlock Holmes is arguably the most well-known..." to "Though not the first fictional detective, Sherlock Holmes is indisputably the most well-known..."

Red information icon with gradient background.svg Not done: without a source specifically stating that, don't think that's a good idea. Even with a source, seems overly-strong language in my opinion. Arguably does just fine. Cannolis (talk) 16:50, 6 May 2016 (UTC)

Actually these corrections are made by a bot named cluebot ng. It detects and removes vandalism. And you know that a bot does not have any idea of language. Twishum 3 (talk) 15:28, 20 January 2017 (UTC)

Cricketers as origin of name[edit]

[1]: Sherwin + Shacklock = Sherlock. They played against a W. Mycroft.

Is this just a legend or does it have any legs? -- Jack of Oz [pleasantries] 08:17, 24 February 2017 (UTC)

Adding the Spy Elements in Sherlock Holmes story[edit]

Four of the stories The Adventure of Second Stain, The Adventure of Naval Treaty, The Adventure of Bruce-Partington Plans, His Last Bow have elements of spy thriller, the last one being a full fledged spy story. It should be added in the article. Shyrlocked (talk) 07:41, 18 July 2017 (UTC)
