Disambiguation link notification for July 26[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited List of PC games, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Action. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

April 2016[edit]

You edited the Linq, it was opened in 1979 not 2014

Also go fix the other casinos then. Change the opening dates on their infoboxes to make it accurate. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 166.177.251.174 (talk) 06:01, 28 April 2016 (UTC)

It re-opened as The Linq in 2014, just like how it re-opened as the Imperial Palace in 1979. If you want to use the original opening date, use 1959. That's when it initially opened as the Flamingo Capri (did you read the article?). As I already specified in my edit summary (something you failed to do), it just doesn't make sense to use an opening date (1979) that came between the original opening date (1959) and the latest opening date (2014). In addition to using the casino's latest opening date, I also specified the years of operation under the hotel's previous names. I felt that this was reasonable. If you disagree, perhaps you would like to discuss it on the casino's talk page.
As for your demanding request ("Also go fix the other casinos then. Change the opening dates on their infoboxes to make it accurate."), I don't take kindly to being told what to do. And I'm fine with using either the original opening date or the latest opening date, both of which should qualify as "accurate." From what I've seen so far, all of the pages for casinos that have re-opened are using their original opening dates, which is fine with me. In fact, the only problem I see is The Linq using an inaccurate opening date of 1979, which is 20 years after the place actually opened. AJFU (talk) 16:57, 28 April 2016 (UTC)

Broker vs investor[edit]

I noticed one of the changes you made on a page justified by the fact that it seemed to promotion. I undid your revision because part of the changes included you switching investor to broker, which is quite the change in profession. You also excluded part of a description which I thought was too discretionary. Thank you always for your service in cleaning up the web. Cheers — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ethanpre (talkcontribs) 22:20, 22 June 2016 (UTC)

  • "I noticed one of the changes you made on a page justified by the fact that it seemed to promotion."
A little hard to understand, but I think I get what you're saying. You're referring to this edit, right?
  • "I undid your revision because part of the changes included you switching investor to broker, which is quite the change in profession."
Actually, no, I did not change the words around. You seem to have me confused with someone else. Bgwhite is the one who removed your additions, thus resulting in the changes which switched "investor" with "broker". This edit and the one I mentioned above are two separate edits made by two different people.
Bgwhite is the one whose edit you reverted. I saw in your edit summary that you referred to Bgwhite (whom you believe to be me) as a "troll". I didn't know people actually believed in them, but I can assure you that I am no troll. The problem with your edits was that the references were changed to link back to previous versions of the page, rather than to the sources themselves. I'm not sure I understand what you were trying to accomplish with that.
  • "You also excluded part of a description which I thought was too discretionary."
"Discretionary." That was a big word for me. I actually had to look it up on the Internets, and I'm still not sure I understand, as it has multiple definitions. "You also excluded part of a description" has me confused as well, as it is rather vague, considering the edit removed a ton of information. I don't know exactly what it is to which you're referring.
  • "Thank you always for your service in cleaning up the web. Cheers"
And thank you for the kind words. Your appreciation is much appreciated. ☺ Regards, AJFU (talk) 00:06, 23 June 2016 (UTC)
Sorry to get you confused with someone else! That's so embarrassing! Also, sorry i'm just getting to this now, somehow I missed the update in my email that you had responded... Anyways, discretionary is indeed a big word, and it was actually used to describe the edit made to one of my edits (by the person who actually made it-|Bgwhite]] ). I too had to look it up on the internet. hahaha 😜 I promise I didn't mean to sound condescending as I was trying to quote the original author who unfortunately I mistakenly thought was you. My sincerest apologies. Happy editing Ethanpre (talk) 16:54, 9 August 2016 (UTC)
No problem. Everyone makes mistakes from time to time. However, I suggest that you please refrain from name-calling ("troll"). Regardless of who you were referring to, there is no need for insults. Good day! ☺ AJFU (talk) 17:22, 9 August 2016 (UTC)

Edits on Jurassic Park[edit]

Man, I honestly don't know what I must have been on when I made that edit. Adding the category on the non-film page I can live with, but screwing up the infobox? How that happened is beyond me. Thanks for the fix though. --uKER (talk) 07:16, 30 August 2016 (UTC)

You're welcome! ☺  AJFU  13:05, 30 August 2016 (UTC)

The Lost World (Crichton novel)[edit]

Hi. Why have you reverted my edit? I am not sure what sources you would like besides the novel. According to citing sources I can cite just the book.

Please provide a valid reason for your actions.

Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by JLOPO (talkcontribs) 14:09, 2 September 2016 (UTC)

Hello. I suggest looking at Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Novels.
  • In the "Finding sources" section, it states: Because of Wikipedia's notability and verifiability requirements, it's important to make sure that there is substantial research to support your work on the Wikipedia article. General notability requirements for Wikipedia require significant coverage in reliable secondary sources with a reputation for editorial control. Novels need this in particular: most readers of a novel can write a plot summary about the work, but without discussion by outside experts, there is little opportunity to discuss issues like Themes, Style and Reception – which are the substantive real-world issues for these works. (For advice on writing these sections, see the discussion below).
  • In the "Major themes" section, it states: In order to write a comprehensive "Themes" section, you must do research. You cannot present your own opinion of what the novel's themes are (WP:OR). You must present the consensus of literary scholars and historians.
  • In the "Style" section, it states: Like the "Themes" section, this section should be based on as much research as you can do and should rely on the same sorts of sources – literary critics and historians, if possible, and book reviews and other writers' comments if not.
Also, I felt that the "Setting" section got a little off topic with the second paragraph that praised Costa Rica.  AJFU  16:27, 2 September 2016 (UTC)
Hi I appreciate your feedback however it was not appropriate to remove all of my work. I agree it could be edited to better reflect the aforementioned policies. Deleting it entirely is not assuming good faith Assume good faith (WP:AGF). I agree that the setting section needs some editing. All of the information regarding Costa Rica was right from the Wikipedia page and is common knowledge. Much of the analysis is preliminary and according to Wikipedia policy would not need a citation . I can edit it and add citations. However deleting it entirely is not appropriate.
Thanks. JLOPO (talk) 17:21, 2 September 2016 (UTC)
I'm not sure what good faith has to do with this, as I never assumed any bad faith on your behalf. I know you only intended to improve the page. If I remove information that does not comply with the guidelines, it does not mean that I am assuming bad faith. Wikipedia:Common knowledge states: Wikipedia editors are strongly encouraged to find reliable sources to support their edits, and to cite them. Citing sources when your edit is challenged by another editor is Wikipedia policy, and any unsourced edits may be removed. For more information, see Wikipedia:No original research and Wikipedia:Verifiability.
You say that the information about Costa Rica is common knowledge, but that would not be true for someone who knows little about the country, such as myself. I'm not even sure that it is relevant to the novel, since it is only a work of fiction and not meant to be totally accurate. But if you could find a source that mentions the differences between the real Costa Rica and Crichton's version of the country, then that would be a great addition.
Also, I'm not sure if you are aware, but all your hard work can be instantly restored with the click of a button. Good day! ☺  AJFU  19:14, 2 September 2016 (UTC)

Mean To Me[edit]

AJFU, you are hoaxing me and disrespectful. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 79.71.160.124 (talk) 05:02, 24 September 2016 (UTC)

"hoaxing"? I don't know the meaning of the word, but I assume you mean to say that I am attempting to deceive you with false information. If so, then you are the one doing the hoaxing. I see nothing "Mean" or "disrespectful" about my removal of your falsified additions, which were not mentioned in the inline citation you provided. If you are so sure that Reliance and RatPac-Dune are involved with Ready Player One (film), then all you have to do is provide a reliable source (one that actually supports your claim). But instead, I assume that you'll probably just keep wasting your time by repeatedly adding the unsourced companies to the article, just like the other anonymous editors (or maybe it's the same person). Anyway, I hope that you'll prove me wrong about you by either:
  • leaving the article alone
  • or by providing a reliable source
For example, where did you actually read that Reliance and RatPac-Dune are involved?  AJFU  05:27, 24 September 2016 (UTC)

October 2016[edit]

AJFU best mind their own business and refrain from monkeying with my contributions lest this person or Liberal POS truely desire to feel the sole of my boot upon their neck 71.251.40.230 (talk) 02:25, 12 October 2016 (UTC)

I am neither a liberal or a conservative. I assume "POS" stands for "piece of shit." That's not quite how I would describe myself, but it's a free country and you're entitled to your opinion, with which I respectfully disagree. As for the bizarre threat regarding your boot and my neck, I suggest you read Wikipedia:Civil and Wikipedia:No personal attacks. Your contributions have been less than helpful; I and others will continue to revert them unless you start editing constructively. If you cannot do that, then continuing with your edits is just a waste of everybody's time, including your own. Best regards,  AJFU  02:53, 12 October 2016 (UTC)

February 2017[edit]

Hey, im the guy who did that unacceptable edit on the rugrats video game. Look, before I made that edit it was already in the cancelled N64 and PlayStation games. I thought ok maybe they forgot to inform that ps1 and n64 releases were planned. Im very sorry for what I did. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mrfluffypuff13 (talkcontribs) 19:14, 6 February 2017 (UTC)

Look, before I made that edit it was already in the cancelled N64 and PlayStation games. I thought ok maybe they forgot to inform that ps1 and n64 releases were planned. Hello. I considered that this might have been the situation, but the sentence you added was still unsourced and had to be removed. After undoing your edit, I went ahead and removed those unsourced categories from the page as well. If you come upon pages like that in which a game is listed in an unsourced category such as "Cancelled Nintendo 64 games", it would probably be better to just remove those categories rather than to add unsourced statements that support such categories. However, if you do choose to write that a particular game was cancelled for a certain console, then you need to provide a reliable source for that claim.
I had left the warning on your talk page because you had previously been adding false information in regards to cancelled versions of video games. For example:
  • At SpongeBob's Truth or Square (video game), you had reverted an edit I made without explanation and thus restored a false category (cancelled PlayStation 3 games) along with an unsourced sentence: "PS3 and PS2 versions was originally planned for release." You never provided evidence for these cancelled versions.
  • A month later, you made this edit at SpongeBob SquarePants: SuperSponge which added an unsourced claim about a cancelled Nintendo 64 port. Also, at that time, there was no category listed on that page for cancelled Nintendo 64 games.
These edits had kinda given me the impression that maybe you weren't exactly here to constructively contribute to the Wikipedia. Hopefully, I was wrong and maybe those past edits were somehow mistakes.
Im very sorry for what I did. Apology accepted. But please be sure to provide reliable sources when necessary. Good day! ☺  AJFU  (talk) 21:26, 6 February 2017 (UTC)

Landmark Hotel & Casino[edit]

Hi! I am Marc Wagner, Executive Director for the Landmark Hotel & Casino Memorial. First, I want to thank you for your work on the Wiki page for the Landmark. You've unearthed a LOT of information that we did not have on the construction of the tower. We have a website (at a temporary address) at http://nowheregaming.wixsite.com/landmark. ALL of the information on the site is verified through various sources (we have a link to our sources in the footer) including interviews with Landmark employees (still in progress). I would like to chat with you some more and invite you to become part of the research team so we can credit your work on the Memorial site and continue to work with you on clearing up unknown information about the Landmark and help us get information onto the wiki page in the proper manner (like logos, etc.). My email is landmarkhotel.vegas@gmail.com Mwagner84 (talk) 19:09, 1 June 2017 (UTC)

Hello. Is it okay if we communicate here rather than via email? I'm not entirely familiar with emails and how to send them. Thank you for the invitation, but I'm not really interested. Becoming part of a research team just doesn't really seem necessary in order to improve the page. I appreciate the offer to credit me on the website, but that's really not necessary. I simply located some old news reports.
Thank you, also, for the web link. It looks like there might be some good sources there that aren't already on the Wikipedia page, so that should help. If you have anything about the Landmark that you wish to discuss, I suggest doing so on the Landmark's talk page, that way other interested editors (if there are any) may join the discussion and the effort to help improve the page.  AJFU  (talk) 20:06, 1 June 2017 (UTC)
Thank you! I will do that. I do want you to know that finding those articles was a MAJOR find in Landmark history that we did not already know. All of the people involved with the construction have passed on and the companies went out of business long ago so it is hard to track down early information. Your efforts are much appreciated at the Memorial. I have logos that I can't get up on here becasue of copyright citations. The business folded years ago and with it went the copyright claims. How do we get them up in a way that is acceptable for Wikipedia? Mwagner84 (talk) 21:39, 1 June 2017 (UTC)
I am not extensively familiar with Wikipedia's copyright policies. You should probably ask here. Hopefully, someone there will probably be able to help you.  AJFU  (talk) 05:02, 2 June 2017 (UTC)

Trump committed obstruction of justice[edit]

This time Trump, his family and Pence has gone too far. They committed stealing the election and committing obstruction of justice. Nobody trust and didn't won't like Trump and Pence. We're against them. Donald Trump and Mike Pence is not our President and Vice President of the United States that help the make America great, they making it worse like Camilla Parker Bowles the criminal who murder Princess Diana since hung up about sex with Prince Charles in the past.

Melania Knauss is a Slovene foreigner. She is not our First Lady of America because she's​ a terrible woman and she is not an American that speaks English.

Trump and Pence let the Americans and world down. Get rid of them. Trump and Pence should resign and be impeached by Congress. And I want to get in the headlines and file a report on against the Trump Administration. — Preceding unsigned comment added by A Chris80 (talkcontribs) 09:40, 18 June 2017 (UTC)

Is that your explanation for this edit? Because if not, then I don't understand why you posted this. Assuming this is the case, your personal beliefs are not valid reasons to delete information. Mary Anne MacLeod Trump did give birth to Donald Trump, and he did get elected as president. Therefore, Mary Trump was, in fact, the mother of a U.S. president. Erasing that information will not change anything in the real world, and it only makes more work for other people who have to change it back to the way it was.
  • They committed stealing the election and committing obstruction of justice. Nobody trust and didn't won't Trump and Pence. We're against them. There is an ongoing investigation. I'll wait until that concludes, because I believe that everyone is innocent until proven guilty. Regarding trust: you don't speak for everyone. I don't know what "didn't wont" means, so I can't comment on that. Who is "We"?
  • Melania Knauss is a Slovene foreigner. She is not our First Lady of America because she's​ a terrible woman and she is not an American that speaks English. Only the first sentence is true. I don't feel that she's a "terrible woman" just because she is an immigrant from a foreign country, but you're entitled to your own opinions. Regardless of your opinion, she is still the First Lady. And she may have an accent, but she does speak English.
  • Trump and Pence let the Americans and world down. Again: you do not speak for everyone.
  • Get rid of them. I can't do that. I don't have the power, nor do I appreciate being told what to do.
  • Trump and Pence should resign and be impeached by Congress. Personal opinions are fine, but again, they are not valid reasons for removing true information, assuming that's why you did it (it seems that way).
  • And I want to get in the headlines and file a report on against the Trump Administration. I can't help you with that either.  AJFU  (talk) 14:28, 18 June 2017 (UTC)

Trump and Pence are crooks[edit]

We the majority of Americans want Congress to impeached Trump and Pence and removed them from office. Trump isn't​ going to be the best leader in America to make it great. Trump should be ousted and Pence is still a racist thug. That's why I confronting them.

Trump and Pence is a liars and they're criminals. Melania Knauss is a very bad woman. — Preceding unsigned comment added by A Chris80 (talkcontribs) 23:49, 18 June 2017 (UTC)

Okay. But please do not allow your personal feelings to influence your edits. For example, with regards to the 2016 U.S. presidential election, to write that Hillary won and Donald lost is contradictory to reality.  AJFU  (talk) 13:44, 19 June 2017 (UTC)

Baskin-Robbins article[edit]

Hi AJFU,

Nice to see there is some life on the Baskin Robbins page!

The problem with those edits is that none of those claims have been supported by any kind of a good source whatsoever. Sources have been requested for years on the talk page, and all those superlatives... "the world's largest", "America's largest"... have remained as unsourced as ever. There used to be at least the company website to go by (which is not a good source anyway), but now there is not even that: the company website is as dead as a doornail.

If you have any sources for those claims or at least some evidence that Baskin-Robbins still exists, maybe you could help out. --Anna (talk) 21:46, 29 March 2018 (UTC)

Hello. I found some sources which should be acceptable for the "world's largest" claim: Queens Gazette (2006), AOL (2012), and LA Weekly (2015). The Baskin-Robbins website works fine for me, and they posted this page on March 26, so they do still exist.  AJFU  (talk) 04:17, 30 March 2018 (UTC)
Thanks! Now that is very strange. I can access the page you linked to, but I still cannot access their home page, no matter if I try http or https.
I have been a bit mistrustful of those claims because in the past, there have been a lot of claims in the article that were simply not true, or at least not up to date. Like for a long time, the website and/ or the article still claimed they had locations in Greece and in Germany, which hadn't been true for years.
So, the sources you name seem to be perfectly good sources to cite, but I must admit I can't help feeling that they too only echo Baskin-Robbins' own claims about themselves. We have yet to see any kind of serious proof for "the world's largest" (and, btw, what does that mean? In terms of stores? In terms of sales figures?).
I have also been a bit mistrustful because of my own private original research. :-) During our more recent trips to the United States, we haven't been able to find a single BR store. The only thing we ever found in those locations that were supposed to be BR locations were Dunkin Donuts. --Anna (talk) 22:48, 30 March 2018 (UTC)
The home page works fine for me.
"what does that mean? In terms of stores? In terms of sales figures?" I assumed it referred to the number of stores they had, and this is supported by a 1985 Los Angeles Times article which reads: "Now it is the world's largest franchised ice cream operation with more than 3,200 stores in the United States, Canada, Japan, Korea, Europe and the Middle East."
"I can't help feeling that they too only echo Baskin-Robbins' own claims about themselves." Could be, but this claim has been around more than 30 years and as far as I can tell, the accuracy of the claim has never been questioned by news organizations or the company's competitors. In other words, there seems to be no evidence that they aren't the world's largest, so I think it's fine to include the claim in the Wikipedia page, since it can be supported by reliable sources that consider it to be a fact.  AJFU  (talk) 05:46, 31 March 2018 (UTC)
Well, sure, as I said, these are perfectly good sources to cite in WP, and they definitely are better than the unsourced company claim that had been sitting in the article for years.
I just retain my right to a bit of personal and completely unsourced doubt as to the facticity of these claims (and I still haven't seen any BR stores around for years). :-) --Anna (talk) 08:05, 31 March 2018 (UTC)

Raven's Home[edit]

You've done such a good job at writing summaries for series like Kirby Buckets, K.C. Undercover, and Bizaardvark, you might be interested in improving the summaries at Raven's Home if that's another series you watch. Face-smile.svg Amaury (talk | contribs) 20:58, 29 April 2018 (UTC)

Thank you. Unfortunately, I do not watch the show, so I will not be able to help out with that one.  AJFU  (talk) 04:14, 30 April 2018 (UTC)
Saw your reply, just didn't think of a reply until now. Anyway, that's a shame. I'm actually surprised you haven't watched it. It's a good series. If you do ever start watching, summary improvements would be a huge help. Face-smile.svg How about the series it spun off from? That's So Raven. Did you ever watch that? Amaury (talk | contribs) 17:13, 1 May 2018 (UTC)
I only saw parts of That's So Raven in 2007.  AJFU  (talk) 19:03, 1 May 2018 (UTC)

Poly Bridge and Zombie Grenades Practice[edit]

Hi, I've seen you putting cover image can you put this article too thank you. User:49.148.226.240 (talk) 11:00, 26 May 2018 (UTC)

Bunk'd[edit]

Looks like someone beat you to the summary for Friday's episode, but it's not exactly the best one, in my opinion. As I assume you've always got a summary to write regardless of whether or not someone else has an attempt at it, the episode could certainly use your great writing skills. The current one seems to jump all over the place in areas. In any case, keep up the good work! Face-smile.svg Amaury (talk | contribs) 23:49, 30 June 2018 (UTC)

Thanks. I'll probably work on it tomorrow.  AJFU  (talk) 15:42, 2 July 2018 (UTC)

And now you get to have more fun with Bizaardvark back, assuming you're still going to get that one. Seriously, you should be a professional writer and write books! Face-wink.svg Amaury (talk | contribs) 15:22, 26 July 2018 (UTC)

Thanks. I'll get started on it today or tomorrow.  AJFU  (talk) 16:15, 26 July 2018 (UTC)

Zara[edit]

Your edit here was partially reverted to remove any mention of Zara. Previous consensus in the article's history and at Talk:Jurassic World/Archive 2#Zara's death have determined that it's an extraneous detail that isn't essential to the plot's understanding or description. Please let me know if you have any questions about this. Thank you. --GoneIn60 (talk) 18:36, 3 August 2018 (UTC)

Wikipedia:WikiProject Film/Style guidelines/Copy-editing essentials#Don't lose the plot mentions "Provide only what is necessary to set the rest of the article in its appropriate context. For example, if the Changeling article were to later discuss production information about the Reverend's radio addresses, it may be appropriate to place that detail in the plot section to avoid confusing the reader ["what radio address?"]. Alternatively, if discussion of such is limited to one part of the article, mention it there to keep the plot section short." As the scene is mentioned in the "Writing", "Filming" and "Critical response" sections, it seems like it would be worth describing (at least somewhere in the article) what the actual scene is like. If not in the "Plot" section, how about describing the scene in the "Writing" section, where it is first referenced?  AJFU  (talk) 20:29, 3 August 2018 (UTC)
All due respect, that advice at WP:FILM does not trump the general advice given at WP:FILMPLOT (and by extension, MOS:PLOT), which describes plot summaries as concise overviews of a work's "main events". I understand Zara receives coverage elsewhere in the article, but that coverage of the character is based on reasons unrelated to the plot. I think the previous consensus to exclude Zara from the plot summary got it right. Now if you want to expand upon Zara's death elsewhere in the article, it might be acceptable as long as the addition is properly referenced (secondary sources should be discussing the death in detail to demonstrate why it's significant). Not everything that is verifiable needs to be in the article, so it's a careful balance between WP:DUE and WP:V that we have to take into consideration. --GoneIn60 (talk) 05:22, 4 August 2018 (UTC)
Thank you. I think a brief description of the scene, outside of the plot, would be fine with proper sources. I'll look into it.  AJFU  (talk) 16:28, 4 August 2018 (UTC)

Sources of the episode air dates of the older cartoons from both Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon[edit]

Are you sure that website that is used as a source for the episode air dates, for example, Courage the Cowardly Dog, are all correct? What if it isn't? What happens then? -_-

I'm telling you...that website isn't completely correct. 68.197.237.168 (talk) 18:15, 5 September 2018 (UTC)

You're taking this website - https://tvlistings.zap2it.com/?aid=gapzap - for granted. How on Earth are you gonna just rely on one single source for the List of Courage the Cowardly Dog episodes articles, as well as other episode list-related articles of the older Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon cartoons from back in the day anyway? I've seen a couple of Cartoon Network's Powerhouse Era-related videos on YouTube that proves otherwise. Same with The Powerpuff Girls. Same with the other "Cartoon Cartoons" and "Cartoon Network Originals". 68.197.237.168 (talk) 18:50, 5 September 2018 (UTC)

You are correct that multiple sources should be looked at. These and Zap2It are reliable sources according to Wikipedia:WikiProject Television/FAQ.
It looks like TV Guide and Rotten Tomatoes mostly have the same air dates that are listed at Zap2It, but some of Zap2It's air dates for season 2 don't match the other two websites. Since TV Guide and Rotten Tomatoes appear to support the same air dates for season 2, these two websites are perhaps more accurate and might be better sources to use for the Courage the Cowardly Dog episode list. The U.S. copyright website also has at least some episodes listed along with air dates. As with this case, multiple sources should be looked at to determine if other cartoons have the correct air dates.  AJFU  (talk) 21:32, 5 September 2018 (UTC)
Okay fine. I just hope I can someday find some more sources for the Courage the Cowardly Dog and the Ed, Edd n Eddy episode list articles. I took a good look at the listing for the latter's seasons 3, 4, and 5 and quickly realized they are in the wrong order in terms of airing and production. I'll try to look over at Wikia too and see what sources they have that I can also include here, but knowing Wikia, they probably don't have much either. Unfortunately, because cartoons like Courage and the Eds are very old, many of the sources have likely been outdated and no longer available by the present day. 68.197.237.168 (talk) 23:16, 5 September 2018 (UTC)

GA co-nom[edit]

Hi! I plan to bring Jurassic World Evolution to GAN after the coyedit by WP:GOCE but since you are one of the main contributors of the development section, are you interested in doing a co-nomination? AdrianGamer (talk) 14:36, 13 October 2018 (UTC)

Hello. I am not too familiar with the Good Article process, and I'm not sure that I would have the time to be involved in it. Feel free to pursue this on your own, and maybe I could be of some help if needed.  AJFU  (talk) 16:26, 14 October 2018 (UTC)
