not noteworthy?[edit]

What i have to ask pertains to a reverted edit: http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Transparent_%28TV_series%29&diff=643968693&oldid=643786805

If the show is noteworthy, isn't it important to note

  • (1) that viewers normally must pay or subscribe in order to watch the show,
  • (2) that on this occasion, the people making the show waived the normally required payment/subscription, and
  • (3) why the people making the show chose to temporarily stream it for free?

If "wikipedia is not really a place to post announcements", does that mean we should remove Transparent_(TV_series)#International_broadcast, since that has been announced, but hasn't happened yet? i meant for my edit to be informative rather than an ad (although things can be both), and capitalized "Streaming online FREE" that way to differentiate this event from the way the show is normally presented (which is also called streaming, isn't it?)

Now that the event is almost over, should any of this go back into the article?

"Now that the event is almost over, should any of this go back into the article?" My opinion would be no. It was just a sales gimmick for Amazon Prime; Wikipedia normally doesn't mention those, particularly not after the fact. Softlavender (talk) 06:36, 25 January 2015 (UTC)

Maura to be referred to as she[edit]

Maura Pfefferman is to be referred to using female pronouns: she, her, etc. To refer to someone on the basis of their own gender self-identification is in line with MOS:IDENTITY (and in my personal opinion also with the appropriate and necessary respect that human beings owe each other). I believe that any change should not be done in this article, but should first be proposed at Wikipedia:VPP#Unilateral_changes_to_MOS:IDENTITY. Mark in wiki (talk) 10:29, 28 June 2015 (UTC)

DVD[edit]

Is this show published on disc, or only streamed?-71.174.188.32 (talk) 03:04, 7 December 2015 (UTC)

LGBT reaction[edit]

As can be read in the article, this show is considered really good. But it's considered good to the general audience. But given the subject matter, I think additional research needs to be devoted to the LGBT community's reception. I briefly searched for opinions myself, but could only really come up with blogs that tended more towards an extreme stance. It was either "This show is transphobic bullshit" or "This portrayal is the best I've seen", with 0 opinions being available in a reliable source. moluɐɯ 13:46, 1 July 2016 (UTC)

Season 2 sources[edit]

Combining Articles[edit]

There is a list of accolades on the main page, but there is also a separate article, connected to this one, that is a partially completed list of awards and nominations. I think that either all the awards listed in the table on the main page be transferred over to the awards page, or we keep the awards table on the main page and the awards page should be proposed for deletion. It seems kind of redundant to have the same information on both pages. Kingstoken (talk)15:58, 19 February 2017 (UTC)

  • I deleted the awards table in this article and moved everything over to the awards page. Kingstoken (talk) 15:45, 16 May 2017 (UTC)
