I wish you would take a look at another article...[edit]

i.e. The newer Stranger Things (TV series). I have done some work on it, but it needs more, and the person who wrote much of it originally, has been resisting any changes I make. I got a couple of Third Opinions in the Talk page and that helped but it still needs work.

I don't edit many movie or TV series articles, except about those that my wife and I really enjoy. Peter K Burian (talk) 22:05, 7 January 2017 (UTC)

@Peter K Burian: Thanks for asking for my help, I don't have Netflix. I got a free month to watch Longmire and that was before ST and others I want to see came on. Some people are stubborn with their editing. — Wyliepedia 22:17, 7 January 2017 (UTC)
Yeah, and I may also take a proprietary attitude toward articles where I wrote the majority of the content. Then someone new comes along and makes ten changes. So I am well aware of that tendency. In Stranger Things (TV series), I was careful to always explain my revisions, always with citations, AND I started some Talk topics to discuss other sections that I felt would benefit from a revision. Virtually no other editors commented, except the other person who had written much of the content (and always said "No revisions needed") so, until we got some Third Opinions, it was difficult. That article is still not ideal but better now. Peter K Burian (talk) 23:24, 7 January 2017 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) Can I jump in and give you a bit of friendly advice? Editing TV articles can be harder than it might seem. There are a small group of editors who know policy and practice as well as any editors, including CAWylie, but also Favre1fan93 and AlexTheWhovian. You'd do well, and will have a better editing experience if you work with them, rather than against them. They're good guys, and along with maybe four or five other editors, the ones you really want on your side. It's good that you recognize your tendency to "own" articles; we all feel pride in the work that we do and hate to see it changed, but the key word around here is collaboration. In the end, they're only words, and others have good ideas, too. Happy editing. --Drmargi (talk) 23:58, 7 January 2017 (UTC)
@Peter K Burian: To get help on TV pages, ask at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Television, for starters. Some of us WikiGnomes frequent it to ask/offer advice. Feel free to join it as well. We throw great parties! — Wyliepedia 00:54, 8 January 2017 (UTC)


Thanks very much for your work at WP:CLEAN. Just a note that I noticed you removed some content from the page, but the standard practice there is to strike and eventually archive fixed entries, not remove them. Check out the instructions atop the page for more information. Thanks again for your work to improve Wikipedia! North America1000 09:59, 5 February 2017 (UTC)

You're welcome. Yes, I popped over after tagging a page and jumped to fix those latest two. — Wyliepedia 10:25, 5 February 2017 (UTC)
Well, thanks again! North America1000 10:29, 5 February 2017 (UTC)
