Punisher edit re: Castle's military service[edit]


You undid my edit correcting Castle's military service. I'm curious what the sourcing is for your edit - it is repeatedly stated that Castle is a Marine, and he is shown in USMC uniform. The link supplied for USSF points to a *US Army* branch, correctly, but that is both incongruous with Castle being a Marine and not where he served. "Special Forces" is never, ever, anything but Army in the US armed forces. Could you point me to the sourcing for the undo?




Just saying thanks for your catch at my sandbox (and for what you tried to do first, which made me laugh). I was wondering whether you could still use the normal thanks function for edits, or if it is missing for you too, and if so do you know why? - adamstom97 (talk) 19:05, 20 February 2018 (UTC)

(talk page watcher) It's gone for me too. However, the last thanks was only ten minutes ago. -- AlexTW 19:10, 20 February 2018 (UTC)
Yeah no worries! The Thanks function is gone for me too. The Village pump has a discussion about it. - Favre1fan93 (talk) 20:01, 20 February 2018 (UTC)
Haha, I just went to thank you for providing that link! Hopefully it's sorted out soon, I use it quite a bit. - adamstom97 (talk) 21:57, 20 February 2018 (UTC)
It does appear that it has been fixed. Yeah, I didn't realize how much I used the function too until it was gone ha. - Favre1fan93 (talk) 16:51, 21 February 2018 (UTC)

Sorry. I don't really work on biographical articles on Wikipedia. It doesn't appear this person would pass general notability guidelines anyways as I can't see any reliable info on them in a quick Google search. - Favre1fan93 (talk) 20:03, 20 February 2018 (UTC)


For some reason I keep getting a malicious warning about this site.--TriiipleThreat (talk) 19:15, 27 February 2018 (UTC)

Hmm. That's strange. When I visit it, it is coming up with an "https" so it is a secure connection. I'm also using a browser with an ad blocker and tracker blocker. So maybe one of those going into my blocks is causing that for you. Can you access the site through the archive link? - Favre1fan93 (talk) 19:19, 27 February 2018 (UTC)
Yeah, It appears to have something to do with my firewall and the website running outdated script which makes me wonder about its reliability.--TriiipleThreat (talk) 19:22, 27 February 2018 (UTC)

Very well then.--TriiipleThreat (talk) 19:29, 27 February 2018 (UTC)


Source is great. The ranking, however, is dynamic and subject to change (by tonight BP will most likely be eighth MCU entry). As it stands now, stating BP is (still) 10th is just plain misinformation. Is it really a problem that static source reads 10th while in fact it's not much of a stretch to realize that the film is still climbing?SassyCollins (talk) 21:24, 1 March 2018 (UTC)

@SassyCollins: I totally understand. All of the ranks should be sourced, yes. So if what the most recent round of third-party sources (from last weekend) states is out of date, then we should find a new one to support the new ranking. I haven't seen any new third party sources comment on it (ie Deadline), as those are the sources we'd prefer to use. As I don't go to Box Office Mojo that often, if there is a tab/page that can support its global MCU ranking, let's add that in for now. And once new articles come out this weekend, if we can change it out, let's do that. Also, I just want to add too, thanks for all the good work you do of keeping the box office numbers up to date across all the MCU articles. - Favre1fan93 (talk) 21:29, 1 March 2018 (UTC)
Thanks! Here's a link: SassyCollins (talk) 21:37, 1 March 2018 (UTC)

Your revert to Black Panther (film)[edit]

You made this revert with edit summary "all of this is from unreliable sources. if these arguments are made by others from reliable sources, those should be used. but both "Boston Review" and "Africas A Country" do not appear to be reliable".

However I think you're mistaken. For example we actually have coverage in its own article of the Boston Review, which is longstanding and has won press awards.

AfricasACountry is harder to check reliability, but it's accepted for cite purposes on many other articles: Think Africa Press, List of countries by natural gas proven reserves, Saharonim Prison, Sport in Africa.. I gave up checking at that point.

Additionally these are cites to convey the extent of views on the film. The thrust of WP:RS for these, is mainly that for facts about opinions, we must be sure it accurately represents the fact of the writer's opinion, and avoid fringey selfpubs, which it surely does (WP:RSOPINION - clearly these are not selfpub sources).

As the text seems to meet RS, would you be agreeable to self-reverting? Otherwise can we discuss any unresolved concerns. FT2 (Talk | email) 14:20, 3 March 2018 (UTC)

@FT2: I'm looked more into each of the 2 sources, and they do seem more reliable than I gave them credit. I will examine again the content you added, and probably give it a copy-edit, as I did with much of the other content before adding it all back in. - Favre1fan93 (talk) 20:07, 4 March 2018 (UTC)
I've added back in the 2 sources. But as I said in my edit summary, much of your original content added seemed duplicate to what was already there, or hard to attribute as some of the quoted material was not in either source. So if you feel there were larger points missed in either, both sources are on the article to add back in if you wish. - Favre1fan93 (talk) 20:54, 4 March 2018 (UTC)
Thanks. To explain and answer your last point - the main point I took from those columns, was the authors' views that the film artificially and unacceptably positioned Africans against African Americans, giving the former many positive traits and the latter most negative ones, a view underlined by the fact as one source stated, that even a white government agent is shown more heroically than a black American, and when Wakanda fights, its enemy is a black American. I felt those were powerful critiques and should not be overlooked or "dumbed down" to maintain a harmonious view of the film. The reality seems to be that some, writing in respected media, actually said they saw the film as racist. That aspect of criticism - stated bluntly by the authors - was what I felt was omitted from the section (if that helps as to my thinking).FT2 (Talk | email) 18:58, 5 March 2018 (UTC)

Hi. You do not need to add "poster" to filenames that don't have the word in. Any filename changes that are unnecessary should not be done. Cheers. — Film Fan 20:24, 5 March 2018 (UTC)

I don't "need to" but in some cases, it may be beneficial for clarity, and to have uniformity across a set of similar file names. - Favre1fan93 (talk) 03:07, 7 March 2018 (UTC)
No. Unnecessary changes to filenames should not be done. — Film Fan 11:47, 7 March 2018 (UTC)
If I may chime in, clarification of image names is an accepted practice, as in differentiating between posters or DVD covers. There is no prohibition on changing filenames because the change is not life-or-death necessary.— TAnthonyTalk 15:17, 7 March 2018 (UTC)
If the filename says "cover" and it is in fact a poster, then yes, great. But adding words that don't need to be there should not be done. WP:FMNN. — Film Fan 16:48, 7 March 2018 (UTC)
Renaming is allowed not just for corrections of typos or incorrect facts, it is also to disambiguate and harmonize. You suggest that the clarification that an image is a poster and not something else is "unnecessary", and at least two editors disagree. I'm sure Favre1fan93 appreciates the reminder not to make frivolous file name changes, but he is obviously acting in good faith and not abusing the privilege.— TAnthonyTalk 17:14, 7 March 2018 (UTC)
I'm fully aware of what file moves should and should not be done. All of the changes I have done so far were either per WP:FNC#1 or WP:FNC#6. None were unnecessary. - Favre1fan93 (talk) 17:49, 7 March 2018 (UTC)


Hey there, I saw your redacted message. Obviously the Deadline change is controversial and needs discussion. But please let me know if you ever have any AWB tasks, and I'd be happy to help you out.— TAnthonyTalk 05:21, 7 March 2018 (UTC)

Yeah, it seemed like a larger issue so I didn't want to leave the message. But thanks. Should this outcome happen one way or the other, and the formatting of Deadline in sources change, if you could run through the MCU-related articles to adjust, that'd be great, because they all use Deadline extensively. - Favre1fan93 (talk) 17:50, 7 March 2018 (UTC)

Luke Cage[edit]

Hey, just wondering if there was a reason why we aren't following the usual criteria for showing the episode table at Luke Cage season 2? A director and a date would be enough any other time. Also, I am not going to be as active for the next while as I am focusing on watching Jessica Jones season 2. - adamstom97 (talk) 20:27, 8 March 2018 (UTC)

Usually it's two pieces of info not including the date, correct? I felt that was the case, because it's essentially the same situation we've been in until we got the specific date, where we knew 2018. I may be wrong, but I felt I was correct. No problem. I've unwatched the JJS2 article until I get through it, but will still be active on the other MCU articles. - Favre1fan93 (talk) 04:57, 9 March 2018 (UTC)
(talk page watcher) Hope you don't mind my two cents, but I thought we went with Adam's suggestion as well, especially since we actually have the date for LC season 2. If we didn't, and it was still just "2018", then I'd agree that it was only one piece of information. -- AlexTW 05:18, 9 March 2018 (UTC)
See I got myself all turned around apparently. I have no problem with it being restored. - Favre1fan93 (talk) 05:20, 9 March 2018 (UTC)
Yeah, I'm getting confused now as well. I'll go ahead and restore the table as I'm pretty sure Alex and I are right on what we generally do. - adamstom97 (talk) 23:26, 11 March 2018 (UTC)
Thanks guys. - Favre1fan93 (talk) 15:58, 12 March 2018 (UTC)
