John Truscott, Australian film designer.[edit]


My name is John Truscott. I am English and trained as an actor at the Central School of Speech and Drama, London. I acted in two films: The Spy Who Loved Me and Taxandria. I notice that in your biography of John Truscott the Australian designer you have attributed my filmography to him. This is distressing to me. Please note that Taxandria was made in 1994, the year after the designer John Truscott died. Will you please alter your biography of the designer? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jaytruscott (talkcontribs) 11:29, 15 November 2017 (UTC)

@Jaytruscott: Done. You'll need to contact AllMovie.com to see about separating the two entries over there (https://www.allmovie.com/artist/p114635 commingles them). I've already submitted a change request at IMDb to do this for their mangled entry (at http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0874405/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1). I don't know how long that takes to process, but there should eventually be a separate entry for each JT in the search results here.  — SMcCandlish ¢ >ʌⱷ҅ʌ<  18:08, 15 November 2017 (UTC)

Add Television WikiProject[edit]

There are a lot of Televisions directors and TV hosts. I can't use the WikiProject film, cause they don't work in the cinema industry. ~~ CherryPie94 🍒🥧 (talk) 00:05, 1 June 2018 (UTC)

@CherryPie94: Use |a&e-work-group= with |a&e-priority=. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 16:43, 1 June 2018 (UTC)

Listas for "List of…" articles[edit]

Currently the template for List of Grateful Dead members has |listas=List of Grateful Dead members. Should this, and the hundreds of other similar cases, be re-arranged as such: |listas=Grateful Dead members, List of? --LukeSurl t c 14:00, 22 August 2018 (UTC)

TemplateData error[edit]

Bad JSON format. You can cancel this operation so you can correct it, delete the current <templatedata> tags and try again, or continue to replace the current TemplateData with a new one.

@Christian75, I'm getting the above error when I attempt to edit TemplateData via the edit page button. Do you want to try to resolve the error rather than reverting the changes you made in late May? (not watching, please {{ping}} as needed) czar 09:52, 9 June 2019 (UTC)

@Czar:I removed a "," - but I can not test it (because I do not know where you got the error). I'm only using json via the script User:Evad37/rater.js Christian75 (talk) 10:55, 9 June 2019 (UTC)

old peer review category[edit]

Hello. I've noticed that Category:Old requests for Biography peer review has been deleted since 2011, but still part of the Template:WikiProject Biography per the |old-peer-review= switch. Is there a reason for this inconsistency? Thanks! --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 17:23, 3 August 2019 (UTC)

It was deleted under WP:CSD#C1 by Skier Dude (talk · contribs). It should probably be undeleted, and marked {{possibly empty category}}. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 18:33, 3 August 2019 (UTC)
