Dates[edit]

Out of curiousity, where are you getting all your actor start/stop dates? It is usually recommened that you add references for this kind of specific information that cannot be easily checked, especially when in some cases you've changed the information that's already there. — TAnthonyTalk 01:54, 3 December 2007 (UTC)

Hello, The start and end dates that I post are first and last air dates in articles from magazines that I have collected over the last five years. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.17.172.89 (talk) 20:45, 3 December 2007 (UTC)
I assumed that, and didn't necessarily doubt that they were correct. But considering that other online sources may differ, you should document the source of your information if the dates in question aren't already found somewhere else. For example, both of the references for Paige Miller (Alexandra Neil profile - SoapCentral.com and Alexandra Neil profile - ABC.com list her start date as 1/27/06, while I believe you changed it to 2/6/06. Your date is probably correct, but anyone checking the facts wouldn't be able to find your date. — TAnthonyTalk 21:05, 3 December 2007 (UTC)

Reverts[edit]

Hey there, my edits to One Life to Live minor characters and other articles are to fix errors in grammar and tense or add missing links, not just because I like to rewrite everything. Please don't blindly revert them because you like it your way. For example, plot summaries should be written in present tense and the first mention of any proper name must be linked. Also, I often clean up unnecessary detail because plot summaries are supposed to be as brief as possible and soap articles are constantly under attack for having too much plot summary and not enough real-world information. I always assume errors like this are unintentional, so don't take my edits personally. I'm very appreciative of your recent edits and addition of valuable information; you should create a username, join WP:SOAPS and monitor our discussions. Finally, as a reminder, please indent your comments and sign all your talk page posts using the four tildes, "~~~~" Thanks. — TAnthonyTalk 02:35, 4 December 2007 (UTC)
