I have added a great deal to the entry on Franklin Rhoda based on extensive research including old diaries in my personal possession. Franklin Rhoda is my Great Grandfather. In recently updating my family tree and reading Franklin Rhoda's diaries I thought there should be an entry in Wikipedia for him. I went to Wikipedia and found that there was already an entry. But this entry was essentially limited to his work during three summers as a topographer in the Rockies. Given that he accomplished a great deal during the other part of his life, I decided to amend the entry drawing heavily on research of others especially historian Dr. Mike Foster who published many articles about Franklin Rhoda. But as Franklin's Great Grandson I admit that I must be biased. I welcome the edits, corrections, deletions and other input on the current entry on Franklin Rhoda. Thank you.

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)

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)
