Happy New Year CAWylie![edit]

The Bible A.D. MiniSeries[edit]

The wrong Kevin Doyle is credited/linked on this page. The correct Doyle was is British, but was born in 1960 AND is famed actor in the acclaimed TV show Downton Abbey. The link on this page now is to a British soccer player. Mr. Doyle's page should also be updated with a television credit for AD The Bible Continues. Thanks! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.251.145.220 (talk) 01:48, 6 April 2015 (UTC)

Thanks! Next time, feel free to be bold and change things yourself. — Wyliepedia 03:45, 6 April 2015 (UTC)

Killed in January[edit]

Yes of course, but you didn't move them to January, nor do we know what date to move them to. Surely there's room for listing them as of today, based on the announcement. -- Y not? 20:34, 23 April 2015 (UTC)

There. Happy, now? This discussion belongs on the Deaths talkpage, by the way. — Wyliepedia 20:38, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
I am happy, thanks. You're unnecessarily unpleasant. -- Y not? 20:41, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
It ain't easy being green. I'm just not one to like those listed there that are only notable in death. Hence, my suggestion above. — Wyliepedia 20:45, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
Gadahn is clearly notable, Weinstein more tenuous but was kept at AfD. Lo Porto probably NN, we'll find out I guess. -- Y not? 20:53, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
Don't really care. This is a DI2015 matter. — Wyliepedia 22:00, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
Don't look now... — Wyliepedia 04:13, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

Moved to January, with specified death date. Looks good. -- Y not? 16:58, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

Episode list for unaired but announced episodes (WP:TVUPCOMING)[edit]

Hi CAWylie, I wanted to have your opinion on why shows shouldn't be added before they aired. (I wanted to add an episode list for Dominion, when I saw your comment (Do not add (2015) until episodes have aired in 2015, as per WP:TVUPCOMING.)) I am asking because I am doing some work for a website which grabs its infos for upcoming tv shows from Wikipedia and I couldn't find anything regarding this matter in the WP:TVUPCOMING site. Will it be from now on that the episodes are only added if they aired? Or did I misunderstand something and can still be added when the episode is officially announced? If not, is it possible to add the announced episodes as a comment to the site? Thanks for your help Goreb (talk) 14:15, 2 June 2015 (UTC)

@Goreb: Adding 2015 to section headers and in other areas for shows or seasons presumes the shows or seasons will start this year. It's perfectly okay to add episode tables with titles as long as those titles or dates are sourced (and not from IMDb) and officially announced. — Wyliepedia 22:57, 2 June 2015 (UTC)

Reddit[edit]

Wylie, what's the prevailing wisdom on the reliability of Reddit AMA's? James Duff did one on Major Crimes yesterday, and says they have 18 episodes this season (see here; it's only a short way down). I'd like to add it, but not at the expense of the usual suspects getting their panties in a bunch. --Drmargi (talk) 01:03, 10 June 2015 (UTC)

@Drmargi: I consider it a social media site, but, since Twitter is pseudo-acceptable for such minutiae, I don't have a problem with adding its info. James Duff's posts could also be acceptable "self sources". Heck, even Futon has been inaccurate at times, but is gospel 'round here. — Wyliepedia 01:20, 10 June 2015 (UTC)
Ordinarily I'd be reluctant, but this seems pretty unambiguous. Well give it a whirl. --Drmargi (talk) 01:23, 10 June 2015 (UTC) (And thanks for fixing the link.)
Are you whirling or am I? (And bare URLs exceed the margins on some devices, shrinks my phone screen. Habit.) — Wyliepedia 01:28, 10 June 2015 (UTC)
I will. I need a cheap thrill. --Drmargi (talk) 01:44, 10 June 2015 (UTC)
Uhhh. Gawrsh! @Drmargi: I added to your thrill. — Wyliepedia 02:20, 10 June 2015 (UTC)

Made you blush! I'll check it out. --Drmargi (talk) 03:33, 10 June 2015 (UTC)

Man, you're fast[edit]

Josef Masopust just died. The Czech Wikipedia doesn't have any changes yet, other than the date of death. ---- — Preceding unsigned comment added by 194.228.166.148 (talk) 17:59, 29 June 2015 (UTC)

Thanks. That's the beauty of reliable online news agencies. — Wyliepedia 19:44, 29 June 2015 (UTC)

Dylann[edit]

Hi, CAWylie. Thanks for your concern about Dylann. This redirect is an {{R from given name}}, and redirects to Dylann Roof because "Wikipedia has only one biographical article of a person by this given name." See Template:R from given name for more information. If you still have concerns about it, take it to WP:RFD. See also: Wikipedia:Redirects_for_discussion/Log/2015_April_12#Johnni. Thanks, -- Tavix (talk) 00:09, 2 July 2015 (UTC)

Please discuss it there, not here. — Wyliepedia 00:18, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
Then respond at the talk page. I posted it at Talk:Dylann. -- Tavix (talk) 00:25, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
