The Hobbit[edit]

Hello DanLancaster.
I noticed you edited the Hobbit here, your edit summary saying "Removing biased description of 48 fps and unsourced material".

I just wanted to say that I saw no bias, merely Jackson giving his opinion and the sources for that information. All material seemed to be sourced adequately. Your edit actually 'broke' the {{quote}} template (closing curly brackets }} missing), removed the source for the quote, and introduced tautology as the 'High frame rate' section then had 2 sentences saying essentially the same thing, that 48 fps filming was used.

Another editor removed the quote 'fragment, I have removed the excess sentence and re-added the missing source, here.

Please take a look and see what I mean. If you don't already do so please use the Show preview button to check your edits before saving.

Please realise I am not criticising, merely trying to help as you are a very new editor.Face-smile.svg Regards, 220 of Borg 14:00, 28 December 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, no problem. There is bias however, because Jackson's opinion was being used as fact in a way. Saying things like "It makes the film more real" misleads readers, and Wikipedia strives to be neutral. Because of the heavy criticism of the use of 48fps, I saw it fit that the article should say 48fps was used, link it to the other articles on High Frame Rate, etc and remove any unsourced material. I would say that perhaps if Jackson's quotes are ever put back in, they should be accompanied by a quote that sums up 48fps criticism to balance the article. Cheers!
