@Victuallers: Thanks for the notification. Looks like a good project, I wish it well. Unfortunately, I mainly edit lists where I'm doing my bit reducing the gender gap rather than articles which I understand is the focus of this project. Cowlibob (talk) 12:25, 20 July 2015 (UTC)
We are focussing on articles because they are easy to count..... but if you create a list then I'm guessing you have an issue with redlinks? All the best. Victuallers (talk) 13:09, 20 July 2015 (UTC)
@Victuallers: Sorry for late reply here. I do have issues with red links but as I work on film related lists mostly the red links are not of female biographies or their works. If work is needed in terms of filmography sections of articles, I could help there.Cowlibob (talk) 13:17, 24 July 2015 (UTC)

TFL notification[edit]

Hi, Cowlibob. I'm just posting to let you know that List of accolades received by Argo (2012 film) – a list that you have been heavily involved with – has been chosen to appear on the Main Page as Today's featured list for August 17. The TFL blurb can be seen here. If you have any thoughts on the selection, please post them on my talk page or at TFL talk. Regards, Giants2008 (Talk) 00:37, 24 July 2015 (UTC)

Manisha Koirala[edit]

I just saw her filmography and you have done a brilliant job. I wish i had grabbed it before you. I really wanted to work on her filmography. I find her extremely beautiful and she (along with Tabu) is the most talented actress from the 90s. Its so so sad that she had to star in B grade films after Company. Bollywood has been cruel to her, Tabu and Urmila (who still can give every contemporary actress a run for their money in terms of acting and looks).—Prashant 15:52, 24 July 2015 (UTC)

@Prashant!: Yes, she was one of the best of that time period, however her personal troubles got the better of her unfortunately. That and the fact that when an actress reaches 30 in Bollywood, the offers for great roles don't come anymore as you're perceived to be "too old" or have married by then which marks the end of the career most of the time.

A few queries[edit]

Hello, I am working on Michael Douglas on stage and screen and wanted to ask a few questions regarding it;

  1. Is Lortel Archives reliable?
  2. Should archive footage appearances also be included?
  3. Douglas performed in 2 documentaries related to The China Syndrome which were included in the DVD version of the film. Should they both be listed separately?

I hope you have answers to these questions. Regards, --Skr15081997 (talk) 11:45, 25 July 2015 (UTC)

@Skr15081997: Great that you are working on his list. Lortel is reliable for Off-Broadway performances, Internet Broadway Database for Broadway performances. I don't usually include archive footage. I also don't include DVD extras unless they were independently notable for some reason, if that was the case you could include it in the notes column for the film. To make sure you've got every credit check IMDB, New York Times filmography as they are usually comprehensive. Hope that helps, happy editing. Cowlibob (talk) 19:50, 25 July 2015 (UTC)
