Re: What Is the Problem?[edit]

First of all, in Wikipedia, there is no such thing as "relevant trivia". See WP:TRIVIA. Your addition belongs in an article about Bart Simpson, not in an article about butterscotch.  Blanchardb -MeMyEarsMyMouth- timed 12:39, 16 March 2009 (UTC)

Okay, then. Make a proposition on the article's talk page and see what happens. But I wouldn't get my hopes up. Sections on how such and such likes or dislikes a certain type of food are frowned on in articles about the food in question, regardless of whether or not the information is true and/or can be referenced. In addition, you are talking here about a fictional character.
It would be another story if you could tell us how the butterscotch-making industry reacted to the revelation that Bart Simpson is allergic. -- Blanchardb -MeMyEarsMyMouth- timed 12:59, 16 March 2009 (UTC)

Ashevillains?[edit]

Hi!

I noticed that back in May 2013, you made this edit to add Asheville to List of adjectivals and demonyms for cities. According to your edit, the demonym for residents of Asheville is "Ashevillain".

This sounded a bit curious to me. Especially with the "-villain" part I have to wonder if it might have been intended in a humorous way or something! Is this a spelling/term that is regularly used by locals? The demonyms for every city ending in "-ville" on that list end in "-villian", not "-villain".

Google says that there are 11800 results for "ashevillain" and 16900 results for "ashevillian". The main uses of "Ashevillain" seem to be for a company that sells longboards/clothing, and a locally made beer.

I hope I'm doing this correctly. It's been a long time since I've discussed a topic and am not sure if this is the correct way to reply.

"Ashevillain" is definitely a colloquial term, so I wonder if I should include that. Or would it make sense to list "Ashevillian" and add the slang as a separate entry with a notation.

I'm not wed to the inclusion of the vernacular form.
