The Dark Knight Rises reception introduction[edit]

Erik, will you please take a look at the discussion at Talk:The_Dark_Knight_Rises#Reception_needs_to_be_changed._Source_not_good_enough.. I would like to get your opinion/advice, especially on covering critical appraisals beyond the British/American sphere, which I feel Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic are too dependent on.

Fahrenheit 451 (2009 film) listed at Redirects for discussion[edit]


An editor has asked for a discussion to address the redirect Fahrenheit 451 (2009 film). Since you had some involvement with the Fahrenheit 451 (2009 film) redirect, you might want to participate in the redirect discussion if you have not already done so.

"Unsourced" tag[edit]

Wikipedia has a tag called "citation needed."

If you think a statement in an article needs a citation, add that tag to the statement rather than deleting text. Skepticalgiraffe (talk) 20:46, 19 July 2016 (UTC)

Why can you not provide sourced content in the first place? You have experience; you are not just a novice adding content without knowledge of policies and guidelines. Also, it is an especially contentious topic, meaning that the material is likely to be challenged and needs to be clearly verified. Erik (talk | contrib) (ping me) 21:30, 19 July 2016 (UTC)

Your most recent deletion of material stated the following: "Revert original research; third opinion on talk page agrees it is OR. " In fact, the talk page in question did not state that.

A sentence saying "sources disagree" which is followed immediately by citations of sources disagreeing is not original research. I assume that a lot of Wikipedians have been criticizing you as posting original research. That does not mean that every single sentence in an article is OR. Encyclopedia articles do have topic sentences and summarize material. Skepticalgiraffe (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 18:32, 23 September 2016 (UTC)
