Re: Your recent reverts at List of Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn episodes and List of Best Friends Whenever episodes[edit]

Wow, that title makes it sound like you did something wrong, haha! You didn't.

Just to let you know, if you didn't already when you reverted there, any IPs that geolocate to the UAE are 100% Orchomen evading their block, and those that don't, but exhibit the same behavior, are webhosts. They'll always revert the very top edit of whatever article to get to us—myself, IJBall, MPFitz1968, Sro23, and Callmemirela—even if it ends up reverting ClueBot, for example. I don't expect you to actively get involved in the fight, but if they edit on articles that you or our group are watching, you can just revert them on the spot. You're also more than free to add them to the list here if they aren't already there. Also gives you a general idea of what to look for for the IPs, though it seems they've started to use some they didn't use before, such as the range beginning with two.

Stuart Little (film)[edit]

Although I did not make the original edit adding William Ross, I did a little research before some minor formatting. As well as IMDb having him credited as 'orchestrator', I also found this from the Library of Congress. Maybe not 'bogus' after all? Eagleash (talk) 04:00, 14 January 2017 (UTC)

@Eagleash: He is not listed as composer, which is what that attribute is for. IMDb music department listing has 4 orchestrators. That attribute per instructions is "Insert the name(s) of the composer(s) of the original music score." Which Ross, as one of the orchestrators in the film, is not. I am following the edits by that IPv6/64 who is adding mostly bogus music credits to articles so my edit summary may be abrupt, but I did check on IMDb to see who was listed in the "Music by" credit. Only Alan Silvestri is listed and only Silvestri should be listed in the infobox. Geraldo Perez (talk) 04:25, 14 January 2017 (UTC)

List of Longest Running Disney Channel Original Series[edit]

Just happened to come across this after reverting an IP on the Girl Meets World episode list. I'm thinking it should be nominated for deletion as it's kind of WP:TRIVIA and basically repeats a lot of information. (MPFitz1968, IJBall.) Amaury (talk | contribs) 08:37, 14 January 2017 (UTC)

Yeah, that's not notable. (It's also mistitled – the standard titling for those kinds of articles is "List of longest-running...") The list of longest-running series on American TV overall would be notable. By longest-running "by network" lists should either be a small "Top 10"(or something...) list or table at the parent network article or something similar (e.g. at Disney Channel or List of programs broadcast by Disney Channel) or just mentioned in the text at the same... Considering that that that article is completely unsourced, it definitely wouldn't survive at AfD. I also notice that it's been almost exclusively edited by IP editors only... I'd suggest WP:PRODing this article first; if that doesn't work, it should go to WP:AfD. --IJBall (contribstalk) 08:44, 14 January 2017 (UTC)
Wikipedia is pretty tolerant of list articles as long as selection criteria is well explained and contents are verifiable. Normal notability for articles is not necessary as long as the list plausibly presents the listed info in a useful manner to the readers. Lists like this are more navigation aids, than articles in their own right. Wikipedia:Categories, lists, and navigation templates has some info. This one should be renamed but I can't see a strong justification for deletion. Geraldo Perez (talk) 15:41, 14 January 2017 (UTC)
Pretty strongly disagree – List of most watched Disney Channel series premieres was already deleted at AfD, and this one isn't all that different. Again, there is basically no precedent for "Longest-running series by TV network"-type articles (this is the only one that exists from what I can tell). I'm going to go ahead and WP:PROD it, and if that fails I'm going to run it by WP:AfD – I'm pretty sure it will fail at AfD just like List of most watched Disney Channel series premieres did (where they didn't even take to my suggestion to merge it!). --IJBall (contribstalk) 18:50, 14 January 2017 (UTC)
OK, we'll see how it goes. Geraldo Perez (talk) 18:58, 14 January 2017 (UTC)
