You can sign your name on Talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically insert your username and the date. It is a good idea to read the most recent entries at the bottom of the Talk page of an existing article before making major changes to it, to see if your proposed change has been discussed before. Before I make a major change to an article, I often make a proposal on the Talk page to see if anyone minds.
Welcome to Wikipedia!
Hi. The new character section should certainly not be above the Synopsis. Often separate character sections don't add anything. I would suggest combining this information with the Synopsis/plot sections by describing the characters briefly there. For example, start the Synopsis off with "Basil, the King of Poland..." More importantly, it seems that the plot section is a mess. Is the "Synopsis" section really Act I? -- Ssilvers (talk) 02:00, 24 October 2013 (UTC)
- I moved the character descriptions to the plot/synopsis section and combined the two repetitive plot summaries, because they were driving me crazy. As you noted, you still need to clarify the plot and probably expand it a little bit. Here is were you can discuss what the characters do or say that is important to the plot. I suggest that you do that as soon as possible. In general, this article is a mess. I think that the problem could be that parts of it were translated from Spanish by an automated online translator. I think a first step for you in this article is to go through it and clarify what each section is trying to say, and at the same time correct/complete the references given. Then you can expand the article using your new references. You asked whether Salvador Dali's 1975 paintings about this play are too recent to add photos of them to Wikimedia commons. Yes, you are right – I'm sure they are still under copyright. But you can add *links* to them in the "External links" section at the bottom of the article. See WP:External links. -- Ssilvers (talk) 19:15, 28 October 2013 (UTC)
Hey, Catalina. You've referred to your "Wadsworth translation" of Life is a Dream, but my sense is that Wadsworth is the publisher of an anthology, not the actual translator, right? I ask because I've put together a little list (List of Calderón's plays in English translation) which this translation should be in, but I can't tell. I'd be much obliged if you'd let me know who the actual translator of your version is... and if they're not on my list, any further information your book has on that particular translation, so I can track it down and add it. (If your translator is on my list, we don't need to add Wadsworth too, because I'm only displaying first printings, and Wadsworth is presumably a reprint.) Thanks for your help!

- Right, I'm sorry if I didn't word it correctly. It's not Wadsworth's translation, but the translation on Wadsworth's anthology. The actual translation is Roy Campbell's. I posted a little paragraph on the article's talk page, where I explain which version I think works best. Thank YOU for your help and for posting those three options. It was really helpful to see them side by side. :)
Adding visual content?
Hi Catalina -- it looks like you missed the deadline for adding visual content? Do you plan to add an image to your article? Do you need help? Let me know. Thanks -- Amy E Hughes (talk) 17:03, 21 March 2014 (UTC)
Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Adrienne Lecouvreur, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Damery (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). 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.
SOMETHING TO PEER REVIEW
HI Catalina! I actual made some changes to my article so now you can actually do a peer review. It took me two hours to figure out how to add an image but it's a good one. Talk soon! BKafel (talk) 02:20, 17 April 2014 (UTC)
