GFDL on Jeopardy![edit]

Yes, that would be case if we were transferring data verbatim from one article to the other, but since that isn't going to happen, and it is merely a summary of anything important which should go to the main article, attribution would move to the person who synthesised the new text.

Jeopardy! set evolution[edit]

Most of the information about the set changes made to Jeopardy! can be attributed to three books published about the show. Inside Jeopardy! by Harry Eisenberg, The Jeopardy! Book by Alex Trebek/Peter Barsochini(sp?) and This Is Jeopardy! which is the most recent published book. In addition, the show's own broadcast tape recordings can serve as evidence.

In terms of the dimensions of the set, especially the "JEOPARDY!" logo during the neon set era and the monitor measurements can be attributed to a few sources which unfortunately no longer exist. One of them was the old alt.tv.game-shows group. Years ago someone managed to purchase pieces of the original neon set and posted particulars about them at alt.tv.game-shows. I also used to chat with an individual online via Yahoo! Messenger years ago who obtained the "Y" from that set, and gave me the dimensions (including its weight and photos of how it functioned). The three gameboard monitors my high school purchased were from Cat. 1/Row 2, Cat. 3/Row 1, and Cat 3/Row 2. They still had the "Property of Coca-Cola Television/Jeopardy! Productions, Inc. decals on them and the markings which designated their location. I took photos of them for a planned Jeopardy! fansite I was working on but never went live, and the photos were damaged during a flooding event several years ago. As far as the measurements of the gameboard that succeeded it? I'd asked show producers that question when my high school was setting up a mock Jeopardy! tournament because we were building a replica of their set in our auditorium (I was chosen as host, set designer and producer due to my knowledge of the show, and that I possessed the Jeopardy! Book, of which our material came from), and they were happy to oblige. Srosenow 98 (talk) 07:29, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

Now this is the kind of stuff I wish I had seen while the AfD was going on! The books are reliable sources and attribution to them is exactly what we need for this information to stay in Wikipedia. Please see the guideline on citing sources, and you can probably restore a good amount of the material back to the "Jeopardy!" article, if you can find the info in the books again. Cite page numbers if you can. Specific episodes can even be used as sources and cited, as long as you make purely descriptive claims which can be verified by anyone watching the episodes. If you know where those episodes can be independently obtained (for example, from a television museum), then indicate that in the citation.
Archives of the alt.tv.game-shows group can still be found at Google Groups, for example this search pulls up some of the messages to which you are likely referring. But be aware that Wikipedia editors often reject Usenet posts as sources unless the identity of the poster can be confirmed and is a credible source for the information. If the same information can be found in a published book, magazine, or newspaper, better to use the printed source. Nevertheless, Usenet posts can and have been cited in articles, and are most likely to be accepted when used to fill in uncontroversial details about subjects which are already covered in more reliable sources.
On the other hand, I doubt we'll be able to use your personal conversations and online chats with the set designers or people who obtained parts of the set, as they wouldn't be considered published reliable sources and can't be independently verified. But I've often been able to use personal knowledge of a subject to improve my search for actual reliable published sources which can be used to back the information. So good luck and happy editing, and don't let the deletionists discourage you! DHowell (talk) 01:04, 13 November 2008 (UTC)
The problem with re-inserting that information into the Jeopardy! article itself is that we end up in the same exact situation that gave birth to the Jeopardy! set evolution article in the first place - that ultimately TPTB will likely deem the article is "too long" and will likely end up with the "set" references being deleted altogether (they've been in the past, who's to say it won't happen again in the future?). I remember writing that information back in 2005 when I was an anon user (had yet to register), and almost immedately the whole section got deleted and was considered as "fancruft" despite the fact that the Bullseye article contained a very large entry in regards to that show's set (as well as various other game show articles here). Also interesting to note (I'm not sure if you've followed that article's history) is that right after it survived its first AfD, a template banner went up citing the need for photos that illustrated the text. The sad point with that? There are, to date, NO free images that exist of any iteration of the Jeopardy! set, only non-free images that either exist in the form of screenshots from Jeopardy! episodes or scans from The Jeopardy! Book and Inside Jeopardy!, both of which are IMNSHO poorly illustrated books when it comes to the set's evolution. Srosenow 98 (talk) 09:54, 13 November 2008 (UTC)
But the sources are what will make the outcome different this time. "The powers that be" doesn't really exist as a monolithic group. Yes, there is a significant faction of editors who hate fair-use images, and seem to make it their goal to eliminate as many as they can find. And there is another grop of editors who hate "trivia" and make it their goal to eliminate as much as they can find. But there is a bigger and more powerful group of editors who love verifiable information that is attributed to reliable published sources. Citations to reliable sources are your greatest weapon against deletionism. I've personally rescued articles from almost certain deletion, even articles that had already been deleted, by almost nothing more than increasing the amount and quality of cited sources. Go ahead and build up that section, as long as you cite your sources, and if anyone tries to delete, you'll be backed up by the people who like to see those sources. Trust me. If the section gets too big, as long as it's all cited and verifiable information, we might even be able to successfully file a deletion review for the original article to be restored, and maybe even get some of the fair-use images back. DHowell (talk) 06:55, 14 November 2008 (UTC)
I agree with SRosenow that it is a losing battle to try to include more information on the set than is already there. The main article balloons, sections are spun off, and the notability of those sections is challenged, usually by the same editor or group of editors, until they are deleted. Until there is a sitewide policy that families of articles are permissible (I saw this issue raised in a recent sitewide editor poll), we will continue to have the problem. Despite the Jeopardy! set probably being a more familiar landmark to Americans than, say, the Parthenon (I choose it as exemplary because it similarly has had an evolution in appearance and function over the centuries), Wikipedia will time and again rejects its notability and call information about it, regardless of how well-sourced, fancruft. I found the closing admin's remarks illogical and disingenuous. If this was not a cruft issue, then a lack of sourcing for parts of the article is not a justification for deletion of the article, only a justification for removal of unsourced content. Similarly, use of a large number of non-free images is non-sequitur. The images were selected as a bare minimum necessary to illustrate changes in the set; the images could have been combined into an arbitrarily fewer number of image files. Robert K S (talk) 20:19, 14 November 2008 (UTC)
It is unfortunate that the editors who would seem most interested in this information and most able to improve the situation are taking such a defeatist attitude. Just because an article or section of an article of mostly un-sourced information continually gets deleted by "fancruft"-haters, doesn't mean that a well-sourced article or section on the same topic will suffer the same fate. Oh, sure, the same people may try to delete the content for the same (bad) reasons, but without the reliable sources very few if any will help you. On the other hand, when information is reliably sourced, people you've probably never encountered before will often come to your defense. Notice that the AfD was originally closed as delete, and only because I brought up potential reliable sources, the admin re-opened the AfD. Note that the final closing admin was convinced to leave the redirect alone and not delete the edit history after I salvaged and merged the sourced content from the edit history. If this is fighting a losing battle how did I manage to achieve these partial victories? If you think the current section in the Jeopardy! article adequately describes the history of the Jeopardy! set, then go ahead and leave it alone. I don't think it does, but I don't currently have the sources with which to improve it. Srosenow 98 does, and I suspect you might, too. DHowell (talk) 02:58, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

August 1, 2003[edit]

I was stunned to see the discussion on this closed as "no consensus, default to keep", since very few people suggested an outright keep, and most would have been satisfied with a merge. I honestly don't think the closing administrator paid attention to any of the comments. Regardless of how you felt on this issue-- delete, merge, keep -- I think that everyone's comments showed that a lot of people care about this issue, and "no consensus" was similar to a snub. I've asked for a review, and invite everyone to give their two cents worth at [1]. Best wishes. Mandsford (talk) 00:03, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

Drawn Together episodes[edit]

Hi Dan,

Thank you for such a curteous and comprehensive message. I believe I understand your concern about my reading of the guideline you quoted in the AfD discussion. According to your suggestion, I will be bold and perform the redirects myself, citing the two prior AfD discussions as precedent. I will, of course, review each article before doing so, as some of them may be individually notable. Are there any particular episodes which you feel are individually notable? If my redirects are reverted, I hope I will be successful in stemming debate into discussions about individual articles rather than an unmanageable one about all the episodes. Thanks again for your thoughtful analysis of the situation.

Happy editing,

Neelix (talk) 14:15, 16 December 2008 (UTC)

[Original message here.]
At the very least, the first episode "Hot Tub" seems notable as it has been covered by a variety of sources: USA Today, the Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, and several more. I realize none of these sources were in the article, but using these sources to make an improved article might inspire anyone who might object to the redirections to improve the other articles similarly if the sources are available. DHowell (talk) 23:15, 16 December 2008 (UTC)
Hi Dan,
I read the reviews you linked to, and while the Los Angeles Times review seems to be about the show in general rather than the pilot specifically, the other two at least are certainly reliable sources which discuss the pilot. I restored the pilot with a reception section, citing the sources you provided. The article certainly needs a lot of work (particularly since it consists almost entirely of lists rather than paragraphs), but it could turn into a well-written, well-sourced article eventually. I don't believe the same could be said of the other episodes, but if you come across reliable sources for them, feel free to send them along!

Radio history[edit]

Excellent sources, I will add them now. We may have to tinker with the format for historic data. I am still not sure what the best way to display the data will be. --Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) (talk) 00:19, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

FYI[edit]

Those areas where you are providing feedback are a bit antiquated and there is more information of which you may/may not be aware. — BQZip01 — talk 01:55, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

Ok, I hadn't gotten down there yet, but I'd still like to make my opinion known on certain aspects of the discussion. DHowell (talk) 02:09, 13 January 2009 (UTC)
Fair enough. That's your call, but I think if you'll read the section I linked, you'll see how much of the discussion above is pretty much irrelevant and is wasting your time. Just glance down and read it and I think you'll see what I mean. — BQZip01 — talk 02:21, 13 January 2009 (UTC)
Have you had a chance to reconsider your !vote? I was wondering because I'd like to close this one down as soon as we can. I think your opinion is certainly valid, but it is a matter of putting the logo in context. If it is copyrighted, then we are always going to have issues with those who side on the "that isn't minimal use" argument. However, if is it a trademark, we can use it at will (as long as it is appropriately used in something associated with the logo). Historical logos can certainly be discussed, but we could also use a historical trademark too. In essence, I think we have some additional options which would expand the number of images being used without using more copyrighted info. I'd like to talk about this because I think a support vote from you would make all the difference in the world. We can certainly consider exceptions for historical logos (perhaps like being used in the first/last season used?), but we need some discussion to craft that. You with me? — BQZip01 — talk 06:14, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
BTW, I'm not saying we should use "BOSTON COLLEGE" to replace the logo. I'm saying that free alternatives exist, it's merely a matter of finding them. — BQZip01 — talk 06:20, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

  • It wouldn't have been a keep if you hadn't done the revisions. I'll try to contribute to the list-- thanks for making it sortable, something I don't know how to do. I hope this can be a lesson for the "it can't be done!" people. Not to mention the ones who can't understand the why people would refer to a comparative table (you know the type, "why do we need a list of state capitals? Wouldn't it be easier to look at the 50 different articles about the states?"). Mandsford (talk) 13:27, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of heavy metal bands[edit]

I'm helping in the review of all of the AFD discussions where the recently uncovered sockpuppets took part, such as this one. For what it's worth: Neither Google Books nor Amazon show page 12 of that book in my part of the world. I discovered, in AFD discussions some years ago, that Google Books doesn't show the same thing to everyone around the world. It actually shows less to me than it does to quite a lot of other people. Uncle G (talk) 02:46, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

  • Wow, I had no idea. Maybe it has to do with fair use law being more lenient in the U.S. than in other parts of the world. But Mr. Sockpuppet said he had the book and still claimed my quote was just a "Google blurb", until one of the other socks chimed in and apparently found the quote but still claimed it didn't support what I was saying... I sure wish I had known at the time that I was arguing with a rabid Led Zeppelin fan using sockpuppetry to push his POV. DHowell (talk) 03:50, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
    • What Google Books shows at that URL when I view it is the publisher's blurb for the book. So that's possibly what the sockpuppetteer saw, and thought you were pointing to. The "as I understand it" from the other sockpuppet is clearly based upon the snippet that Google Books presents in its search results. So, yes, there is a basis for suspicion that the sockpuppeteer didn't actually possess the book as claimed. Xe wouldn't be the first LZ fan to dispute the heavy metal classification, either. Uncle G (talk) 10:43, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
      • If a reliable source were cited which said Led Zep wasn't heavy metal, I would of course have no problem with Wikipedia saying that the classification is disputed. I hadn't found such a source however. At best we have Plant saying it's unfair to typecast the band as heavy metal, which still doesn't really dispute the classification. (For example, it would be "unfair to typecast" Kid Rock into any genre, but it doesn't mean we can't classify him into several.) DHowell (talk) 20:14, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

Notability guideline[edit]

Just for the record, there is language in the notability guideline about self-publicity. It's specifically mentioned as being not "independent of the subject," which is as necessary to establish notability as "significant coverage." Skiasaurus (skē’ ə sôr’ əs) 03:03, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

  • I had put "self-publicity" in scare quotes because, unless it is paid advertising, when publicity is published by an independent reliable source, it is not "self-publicity" in any sense of the word. I was being somewhat sarcastic, but I guess that wasn't clear. The articles I cited are certainly not "works produced by those affiliated with the subject". DHowell (talk) 07:12, 24 April 2009 (UTC)
    • As I understand it, self-publicity is when one publicizes oneself. If that is the case, then the articles are self-publicity in every sense of the word. And while it is true that the sources did not have to publish it, just because they did does not automatically make it encyclopedic. Skiasaurus (skē’ ə sôr’ əs) 15:27, 24 April 2009 (UTC)
      • When one publicizes oneself, it is self-publicity; but when it is picked up by newspapers, it becomes plain "publicity". Or do you think the Los Angeles Times, USA Today, and The New York Times are somehow affiliated with the creators, producers, developers, or puppeteers of Avenue Q? Read the guideline, only "works produced by those affiliated with the subject" are "self-publicity". And it is not just a "short burst of news coverage", which is what the guideline paragraph you linked to says. Rod was covered by Orange County and Long Beach Blade magazine as recently as this month. He also appeared on Hollywood Squares, as covered in Playbill, many months before the 2004 RNC.

Since you suggested a truce between Dbratland and me, and I accepted, but then I went and compiled in the RfC the history of personal attacks he lodged against me, I feel I owe you an explanation. I don't know how this RfC might be used in the future, but I feel the need to defend myself, including showing that I wasn't the one violating WP guidelines and policy. I hope that is understandable.

I remembered a couple of instances of personal attack, and so decided to find them and list them, but, frankly, the resulting compilation was surprising to me. I think that AGF and NPA are core policies, even more important than Verifiability, and are not to be taken lightly. I hope you're not disappointed. I really do appreciate everything you've done, and will continue to work towards achieving a truce. I sincerely hope this compilation serves as a valuable lesson. He could even thank me for it, but I'm not holding my breath. --Born2cycle (talk) 00:09, 7 June 2009 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Frosty, Heidi & Frank[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Frosty, Heidi & Frank has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Tagged as having no sources for more than two years; recent BLP problems - article causes more trouble than it is worth - likely self-promotional?

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{dated prod}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Jimbo Wales (talk) 23:01, 7 August 2010 (UTC)
