DYK nominating[edit]

Please nominate articles using the nominations template (there are instructions at Template talk:Did you know#How to list a new nomination and in the documentation at Template:NewDYKnomination) rather than copying and pasting from other nominations like you did here.

Clive Revill[edit]

I saw that you edited Clive Revill. He is a good actor and worthy of an article in WP. However, since he is an old man, I fear that the notability guidelines may preclude him. I am discussing on the Wikipedia talk:Notability (people) page about possible optional objective criteria. The usual subjective criteria would remain. However, if Clive Revill were ever threatened with deletion, having objective criteria may save him. After all, he is an old man whom young teenagers probably haven't heard of and wouldn't mind killing him off Wikipedia.

People familiar with Clive Revill's work know that he has been in many, many films and in theatre. If there were an optional objective criteria, say, noting that acting in more than 25 films is an optional criteria to establish notability, then Clive Revill would be assured its rightful place in this encyclopedia. What are your thoughts? User F203 (talk) 20:36, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

Infobox for musicals[edit]

Hi: I noticed that you are adding the orchestrations to the Musical theatre infobox item under "music". Per the guidelines for the infobox, only the composer is listed there, so I have reverted your additions. If you'd like to discuss, you might want to bring it up with the members of the Musical theatre project on their talk page (since they are the ones who established the guidelines). Here are the guidelines for the infbox for Musical theatre:Template:Infobox_Musical. Thank, JeanColumbia (talk) 19:47, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

Dr. Strangelove[edit]

I've removed the information you added to this article concerning the name of Major Kong being a reference to a character in Tom Corbett, Space Cadet. The citation you used does not have any reference to a relationship between the two characters' names. If you have a citation to support that contention, you can add it back in, but please don't attempt to add it without a cite. Beyond My Ken (talk) 08:32, 9 March 2010 (UTC)
