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

i.e. The newer Stranger Things. 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, 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)

Editor using future "as of" dates in college basketball standings templates[edit]

Information icon There is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents regarding an issue with which you may have been involved. The thread is User making problematic edits on many pages from many rapidly changing IPs. WildCowboy (talk) 04:32, 2 March 2017 (UTC)

WAC Women's Tournament[edit]

I would like to thank you for your assistance on the WAC Women's Basketball tournament. I'm the one who had done all the updates on it the past couple of years, but time constraints have prevented me from being able to assist much this year.

I would advise you to be careful with the school names though. Utah Valley is NOT Utah Valley State. They dropped State from their university name back in 2011. Likewise Cal State Bakersfield is not Bakersfield State. They offically changed their school name to Cal State Bakersfield back in 2013. When we do updates, we use the schools current name or their preferred athletic name. We do not use the schools past name. Bigddan11 (talk) 14:46, 10 March 2017 (UTC)


I will stop fallowing you If you stop flowing me.

I won't harm that boy and his flowers but if he try to harm me tell all of them that I am not afraid of dying. In addition I will help those who are with me. No harming

Freedom and peace. Or....

Fargo S3[edit]

Where is this moronic business about McGaffigan not being main cast coming from? I know one editor decided he wasn't because he's not featured in a preview. We've got waive of IPs, but no registered editors making the change. Methinks we've got an IP hopper. --Drmargi (talk) 00:03, 13 April 2017 (UTC)

<shrugs> Or we have a Gaffigan hater. — Wyliepedia 00:26, 13 April 2017 (UTC)
There is that. Next week's credits should solve the problem. I just put a disruptive editing warning on the talk page of the worst offender. --Drmargi (talk) 00:34, 13 April 2017 (UTC)
I fixed your typo there. "McGaffigan", lolz. — Wyliepedia 01:35, 13 April 2017 (UTC)
On the warning? Oh, for heaven's sake. That would shoot my credibility in the foot. Thank you! --Drmargi (talk) 03:51, 13 April 2017 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Comedy Series[edit]

Whatever the result was, it wasn't a SNOW keep. Please revert your closure. J947(c) 19:32, 21 April 2017 (UTC)

Firstly, your reason to nominate it wasn't entirely valid. The category, while mentioned in countless sources with the yearly ceremonies, can never satisfy blanket notable coverage, but then neither can any standalone category award pages. The sole keep vote (and the only vote, mind you) explains it nicely. Thus, the snow closure.
Secondly, it's been over two weeks since the above (and again only) vote, which is far longer than the suggested length for an AfD to remain open. Should I remove the snow statement, I would still leave it closed for the above reasons. Your nomination rationale is still invalid. — Wyliepedia 00:23, 22 April 2017 (UTC)
First of all, it wasn't the only !vote, as the nomination was a !vote as well. Secondly, AfD is not a vote; it is a !vote. Thirdly, snow closures should only happen when the outcome is blatantly obvious e.g. 10–1, 30–4, etc., not 4–1, 8–3, or even 15–4 (in most cases), so 1–1 is definitely not a SNOW closure, even when many sources have been found. Fourthly, I would say that it is too close for a non-admin closure, especially from an editor who has this as his only close (well, I relist and close AfDs a lot and haven't seen you around.
As a fifth point, AfDs should normally—if a consensus hasn't been reached earlier—be relisted 2 times, which happened here. Thus, the AfD's is perfectly fine. Finally, this has happened to many nominators; sources have been found during the AfD, which helps the article (and thus the encyclopaedia) grow. 'Your nomination rationale is still invalid.' is a pointy remark. However I must admit that your closure (as 'keep') is probably correct. J947(c) 23:27, 25 April 2017 (UTC)
Nowhere at NAC does it say one should have a history of NACs. I usually vote (pardon me, !vote) on TV AfDs, which is where this popped up, and, after careful scrutiny, closed it (again for the above reasons). Lastly, this is my talk page and not the AfC talk page, so I believe I can be as "pointy" as I please, but thank you for the lovely sea of blue here. — Wyliepedia 23:40, 25 April 2017 (UTC)

why so serious huh kkkk[edit]

I was wondering how does one acquire those sidebar thingies — Preceding unsigned comment added by DopeboyAKAtriplebp (talkcontribs) 10:26, 24 April 2017 (UTC)

If you mean userboxes, there's a list of them here. To add one to your userpage, use this format for example: {{Template:Whatever you choose}}. — Wyliepedia 11:02, 24 April 2017 (UTC)


You introduced a headline from a slightly different source ( The source in use (which has always been does not say that at all. Hence the reverts. Note the subtle differences between the source you are taking the headline from and the headline in the source which has been used since the entry was started. I'm now sorting it out for you by changing the URL to the source which matches your headline. Which would have saved this argument, and will keep everyone happy.

Standard page description?[edit]

Is this supposed to mean we can't specify Papillaud's business unless his article's lead does? If so, any objection to noting it in the lead and Deaths? "Businessman" is vague enough to cover almost all of our males. InedibleHulk (talk) 22:17, June 14, 2017 (UTC)

Sorry, but "vague" seems better than "bottled water salesman", which sounds like a street vendor, in my opinion. That said, the lede in his article should also be expanded to include everything below it, i.e. the name of his business and trade. — Wyliepedia 01:32, 15 June 2017 (UTC)
"Bottled water businessman" work better? "Executive"? For someone so associated with one thing, it just seems odd to portray him as an all-rounder. But yeah, "salesman" is a bit of a dirty word. Bottled water isn't like used cars, though. You buy a bottle of water off the street or a shipment from Papillaud, they're almost certainly going to work. The prices can be ridiculous, next to the costs, but they don't spring up after you've already been sold.
Anyway, it's your call. I'll probably fix his lead later, regardless. Water is about as important as money, I figure. InedibleHulk (talk) 04:56, June 15, 2017 (UTC)

Making of the Mob[edit]

I see the main page says it's a docu-series, but the New York and Chicago editions say they're each miniseries. So you're saying that the individual seasons are miniseries, but the series itself isn't? A season isn't a series, the main Making of the Mob is the series. Vaselineeeeeeee★★★ 23:22, 11 September 2017 (UTC)

Correct. A docu-series and a miniseries are two separate things. A miniseries "is distinguished from an ongoing television series, which do not usually have a predetermined number of episodes and may continue for several years". The main MotB series as a whole is not a "miniseries", and shouldn't be catted as such. If you wish to cat the individual seasons as one, I wouldn't make a fuss, as they are their own entities. Further, please discuss article issues on article talkpages, thank you. — Wyliepedia 23:30, 11 September 2017 (UTC)
Ok thanks. On a sort of related note, for the upcoming miniseries Bad Blood (miniseries), I'd like to add the first image shown here. I realize there's copyright, but I've also noticed some sort of rational to use the photos on the New York and Chicago Making of the Mobs. I don't know if you're familiar with this area of Wikipedia/Wikimedia, but it's not mine. If you are willing, would you mind looking into this to get it done. It would be much appreciated. Thank you. Vaselineeeeeeee★★★ 00:00, 12 September 2017 (UTC)
Probably would be best to go with this image as it appears to be the official logo and most likely the intertitle, once the series starts. That's the background on its City homepage. The Facebook image looks the cleanest but will need some trimwork of the white to make the text cleaner. I'll work on it this week. — Wyliepedia 02:37, 12 September 2017 (UTC)
Yeah, you're probably right with that image. Thanks. Vaselineeeeeeee★★★ 03:22, 12 September 2017 (UTC)
Hi again. I'm wondering if you know where we could find reliable viewership and ratings for Bad Blood? Probably being a Canadian show, it is harder to find, or nonexistent, or perhaps it is too early into the show to have such sources, as from my searches I cannot find anything. Thanks.

Cold Justice[edit]


Never used Talk pages before so not sure how to navigate them. Couldn't figure out how to read the full summary of what you changed and why, just something about according to most sites, like zap... Anyway, Oxygen's episode guide lists the season 4 episodes, their air dates and titles. What I entered was correct according to the network who airs the series.

Some others are incorrect, in part, perhaps, because on August 26th Oxygen aired a repeat from season 3 and mistakenly listed it in their season 4 episode guide, but corrected the error a few days later. I've also watched the current season each week and the episodes, descriptions and air date match Oxygen's episode guide, as did what I entered originally.

Rymicha (talk) 07:09, 15 September 2017 (UTC)

@Rymicha: as stated in my removal, you cannot copy anything from any website or published work and paste it into any Wikipedia article. It's a copyright violation. It doesn't matter if the production company wrote it, the network website, or whoever. That's why most every CJ summary has been written from a viewer perspective. If, as you say, you have seen every episode, then please write summaries in your own words. This holds true for every TV series. Thank you. — Wyliepedia 21:39, 15 September 2017 (UTC)

Non-book authors[edit]

Every written thing has an author. I'm authoring this post right now. This post is not a book. InedibleHulk (talk) 22:17, September 21, 2017 (UTC)

Aye, and since this is Wikipedia's talk page, we're equally screwed out of the money. We both get a slice of that sweet hyperlink attribution pie, though. InedibleHulk (talk) 01:24, September 22, 2017 (UTC)
Mmm, pie. — Wyliepedia 01:43, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
