Comment on Philosophy of Physics[edit]

Please put remarks at the end of each discussion page. Also, try to be aware of how your readers will interpret what you have written. What follows your remark is indeed not an encyclopedia article because it is the discussion page for an article -- but I don't think that's what you meant to indicate.

Gosselin Epsiodes[edit]

It says on the main page of Jon & Kate Plus 8 that the episodes are half hour, except for specials and for that they're astericks telling you they're an hour. (talk) 00:01, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

WP:OBVIOUS - state your assumptions. The main article states nothing about 1-hour episodes, only 42 minute and 23 minute episodes. The list article uses different terminology, 1-hour (and does not state what the other format is). The assumption is that the other episodes are 1/2 hour, but that is not necessarily the case, since it assumes the reader is familiar with North American broadcast defacto standards, and this is inherent bias. Your comment about watching it for 4 seasons is explicit bias against readership who do not watch the show. (talk) 05:06, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
If you were to watch the episodes straight though, no commercials, then they would be 23/43 minutes, like all other shows on here, or hadn't you noticed? Why are you insisting on changing it when there's nothing wrong with the episodes are listed as they are? Ever hear of the saying "if it ain't broke, don't fix it"?
Also there's an episode table listed above the episodes, in case you missed it. Btw, no idea of what you're trying to say, trying talking as if you're talking to me face to face and not a dictionary. (talk) 09:32, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
You are making a wild assumption by claiming that other shows here are 23/43 minutes long per 30/60 minute programming block. It's simply not true. And not all US channels have commercial breaks, so a 43 minute program could be placed in a 45 minute programming block. Besides, the US is not the entire world, there are other lengths of programs, and other lengths of programming blocks. You assume that your audience are fans of J&K+8 and watch US TV, this is a bad assumption, since this isn't the US Wikipedia, nor the J&K+8 fansite. (or it seems to indicate you assume such from your comment about 4 years in your edit summary)
Empty sections are broken sections. You've left an empty section with a bare {{main}}. A summary is supposed to sit there.
If it's broken, why don't you let people fix it? (talk) 11:31, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
What empty summaries? If there's a summary on TLC, I use my own words to create one with a new episode of the still currently running Season 4. (talk) 18:44, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
Did you even bother to read WP:SUMMARY? (talk) 05:55, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

Are you happy now? You've gotten your way after butting in where you weren't wanted or needed, after trying your hand at editing after only a few weeks. I joined Wikipedia and wait a full year before trying my hand at editing.

All that time and effort I put in has gone to waste, no thanks to you. Tell me, where you bored or trying to cause trouble for me and my show? I watch the Gosselins faithfully every week, I look up episodes on TLC, I e-mailed Discovery to find out when the current season ends and the new season starts. Then you come in and decide it's not to your liking and think because it needs fine tuning when it does not.

I am not givng up, I will find a way to put the show's information back the way it was, long before you came along, especially since you're only one who had a problem with the episodes. Other users have come in and tried to delete/add/move episodes and I always went behind them and fixed it. If I could I'd report you but since I can't all I can say is you "vandalized" a great show that I took care of!!!!! Happy now? (talk) 20:19, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

Why do you think I have only been editing for a week, when I'm pulling policy shortcuts out of my ass? I couldn't have been at WP for only a few weeks and do that. It's your show? Who are you? Kate Gosselin? If you're not, then it isn't your show. See WP:OWN, it's not your article, it's WikiPedia's article. Read WP:GFDL. Wikipedia is written for a general audience, not for just fans of J&K+8. See WP:CIVIL. Do you watch the show? If you did, you'd know they've been advertising the season finale of J&K+8 for weeks now on TLC, as part of the advertising for the show itself. ("Season finale of J&K, followed by the premiere of Table for 12" ... per advert by TLC) 05:52, 20 March 2009 (UTC)
If I didn't watch the show, then how would I know how to find the episodes on Funny how you "claim" there's a finale after the fact. No I don't get TLC, it's called "online episodes". If you've been on Wiki for more then a month, then why are you annonyomous and why does your history page only go back a month? As for your "ass", it wasn't wanted or needed on Jon & Kate Plus 8" but you decided otherwise.
As for me owning it no I don't, but since you're didn't get, I'll make it simple for you. I have adding episodes, ME, not YOU, since Season 3. Don't tell otherwise because only recently have a few others been trying to add episodes and when they do, they mess up the episode table, that someone else put it, and I've add to figure out how to put it back the way it belongs.
Also you "claim" people in "other countries" wouldn't know the episodes are 23/43 mins. because when they air they're actually 30/60 mins. long. What I have to say to that is this: Assuming that the show airs in other countries outside of North America, you don't think that other countries have commercials too? For all you know, if/when this show airs in other countires, it could be even longer then here. (talk) 19:32, 20 March 2009 (UTC)
You don't seem to watch J&K+8 if you haven't seen the advertising that TLC makes for it. Your claims about not knowing the season finale air date is proof of it, since TLC has been advertising it for most of March.
WP:OWN — do you know the free encyclopedia that anyone can edit.? It's called Wikipedia. You don't own the articles. Do you know WP:CITE? If you've been adding episodes, why haven't you been adding REFERENCES? You removed references. Remember WP:NOR. You've also been removing categories. Please read WP:CAT. If you've actually been editing for a year, you should be familiar with them, but you don't seem to be. If you've been editing for a year, why does your edit history extend back to only March 16? If it extends further, then why do you think I've only been editing for a month?
If you've been editing for a year then why are "you" *anonymous* WHY DON'T YOU HAVE AN ACCOUNT? Since you asked me, and you aren't using one, then you must have one already. An IP user editing so for a year wouldn't ask someother IP user that kind of question. A registered user would though, so I suspect you have an account and are hiding from it. Have you been banned?
PBS does not have commercial breaks, Sundance Channel does not have commercial breaks, etc ad infinitum. FOX this season has been advertising TV shows with fewer and shorter commercial interruptions (mostly "Fringe" and "24"). Canada has shorter commercial breaks on average than the US, which is why US fans try to get tapes/rips from Canada for extended versions of some TV shows. In the UK, the BBC doesn't have commercials as such. If you watched reruns of Star Trek (the original version) you should have noticed that they cut the episodes shorter than they were in the 1960's, because commercial breaks are longer now than they were back then (still a 1-hour block, just more commericals, so they cut content).
If you've been editing for a year, how come you don't indent? Try WP:TP and WP:TALK (talk) 08:33, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

Set indices on stars[edit]

I see you have been adding {{SIA}} to quite a few disambiguation pages for star systems. I thought I'd float the idea of {{SIA|stars}} which would add them to their own category. There seem to be enough already to warrant this. Anyway just an idea. (Emperor (talk) 19:48, 23 March 2009 (UTC))

Sounds like a good idea, though someone will have to create Category:Set indices on stars (my IP has rotated, since I did those SIAs) (talk) 08:12, 24 March 2009 (UTC)
