Hutcherson TFAR[edit]

I've decided not to run this on 12 March for the reasons raised in the discussion. If you want to run it this month, I can offer you a non-date-related slot on 28th, provided this is not requested in the meantime by someone with a strong claim on that date. Or you may wish to choose a date that is a better fit for Hutcherson. Please let me know. Brianboulton (talk) 02:09, 20 February 2015 (UTC)

@Brianboulton: Thanks for the note. I'd appreciate if you could put it in the 28th slot for now, provided nobody else jumps in asking for the date. My time on here is going to decrease soon, so it would certainly be nice to see it on the main page before I head off for a little while :) Gloss 04:04, 20 February 2015 (UTC)
@Brianboulton: I see you closed the nomination. Does that mean you didn't schedule it for the 28th? Gloss 16:12, 20 February 2015 (UTC)
No, it means I'm holding it for that date – but I didn't want to occupy one of the TFAR date slots. I am likely to schedule it round about 8–10 March. If the plan has to change, I'll let you know. Brianboulton (talk) 16:18, 20 February 2015 (UTC)
@Brianboulton: Ok great, thank you. Gloss 16:21, 20 February 2015 (UTC)

Kael Mouillierat[edit]

I'm not sure but I think the acquired year is when he was first traded, drafted or signed as a free agent. That's why I reverted my own edit when realized that the Isles signed him to a two-way contract in the summer of 2014. But it's a minor point, it doesn't hurt anything and it's the same season!! Thanks!! Raul17 (talk) 22:59, 20 February 2015 (UTC)

When I added Matt Carkner to the Bridgeport roster, someone changed the year acquired to 2015 because that's when he was acquired by the Sound Tigers, so that leads me to believe that 2015 makes sense here too. I'm not positive either way, but luckily it's not a huge deal like you said! Gloss 23:04, 20 February 2015 (UTC)


Hi, do you know whether there is Survivor Live this season? (talk) 04:11, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

Can you please respond? (talk) 06:33, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

May I know when you will respond? (talk) 02:25, 1 March 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Today's featured article/March 28, 2015[edit]

I made a few tweaks to the TFAR paragraph, let me know if anything looks wrong, please. - Dank (push to talk) 22:02, 8 March 2015 (UTC)

@Dank: Looks good, thanks for the copyedit. Gloss 22:06, 8 March 2015 (UTC)


Hi, Gloss. I would like to know why the GA nomination on All About That Bass failed. I understand that it is too lengthy, but I don't see how that will affect the status. In my opinion, it is even worth a featured article. The major contributor is being very upset and demoralised now. Thanks, Nahnah4 (talk | contribs | guestbook) 09:28, 18 March 2015 (UTC)

Opinion on signature moves[edit]

@Starship.paint: I haven't been a part of the PW project for years now and I'd prefer to continue to keep my distance wherever possible. Sorry, Gloss 12:04, 18 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Okay, I respect that. Congrats on your upcoming TFA, by the way. starship.paint ~ ¡Olé! 12:12, 18 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Almost forgot about that. Thank you! Gloss 20:56, 18 March 2015 (UTC)


The page really shouldn't say there have only been two characters to appear in multiple seasons... because there have been three. Cebr1979 (talk) 13:49, 20 March 2015 (UTC)

Josh Hutcherson[edit]

Congratulations on the TFA today! — Ssven2 Speak 2 me 00:05, 28 March 2015 (UTC)

Thank you! It's pretty exciting seeing something I worked so hard on featured on the main page. I'm smiling over here! :) Gloss 03:31, 28 March 2015 (UTC)
Would you like to make some comments at Enthiran's PR? Face-smile.svgSsven2 Speak 2 me 04:46, 28 March 2015 (UTC)
I'm going to have to decline as I've run out of free time for extra editing, but I wish you the best of luck. Gloss 12:36, 28 March 2015 (UTC)
Indeed, a hearty well done!♦ Dr. Blofeld 09:12, 28 March 2015 (UTC)
Great work, Gloss! It was a pleasant surprise to see the article on the Main Page before I logged in. :) Acalamari 10:33, 28 March 2015 (UTC)
Thank you both! Gloss 12:36, 28 March 2015 (UTC)
Congrats bro :) Snuggums (talk / edits) 13:00, 28 March 2015 (UTC)

Josh Hutcherson
Thank you, veteran editor who got "this all" off your chest, for quality articles such as Josh Hutcherson and The Great American Bash (2005), for featured lists and good articles, for warnings of unconstructive editing and newsletters for project professional wrestling, project maintanance and reviews, - repeating: you are an awesome Wikipedian (1 March 2009, 21 March 2009)!

--Gerda Arendt (talk) 19:56, 28 March 2015 (UTC)

Hey, thank you for this! Gloss 20:26, 28 March 2015 (UTC)

Fair's fair[edit]

You wanted the hammer dropped on me earlier, so the least you can do now is give me your opinion for my idea of having the best of both worlds on the List of...pages. Vjmlhds (talk) 23:06, 1 April 2015 (UTC)

Survivor Redemption Island[edit]

The guy's name is Matthew, it even says so on the intro, for that reason I think it should be that in the voting history.

American Horror Story: Hotel[edit]

Gloss, I see you do regularly edit/edited the AHS articles. With this new season coming up, may I ask your opinion on the new article linked above? Thanks. —Indian:BIO [ ChitChat ] 17:40, 16 September 2015 (UTC)

@IndianBio: What about the article? In general? Gloss 00:10, 17 September 2015 (UTC)
The content, the writing style, the prose etc. You do it pretty good Gloss I remember :) —Indian:BIO [ ChitChat ] 03:53, 17 September 2015 (UTC)
Nothing stands out negatively from a brief look. Looks well written.. and will probably need an eye kept on it as the season start soon. Appreciate the kind words! Gloss 13:13, 18 September 2015 (UTC)
Gloss I wish you are more involved in the article, really need your input sometimes. —Indian:BIO [ ChitChat ] 14:57, 11 November 2015 (UTC)
@IndianBio: Still don't have all that much time to put into editing just yet, perhaps soon though. Gloss 15:05, 11 November 2015 (UTC)

Sourcing filmographies[edit]

Hi Gloss, with your experience of writing Josh Hutcherson, can I check what are acceptable sources for Dario Cueto's filmography? Is Rotten Tomatoes one of them? Or Or Amazon? Or MovieYoda and Metacritic? Thank you! starship.paint ~ KO 06:06, 24 September 2015 (UTC)

Hey, unfortunately I really don't have the time to dive into this and give you a good answer right now. Got an e-mail about your message, so I thought I'd pop in and reply, but can't really help much right now. So sorry! Gloss 12:27, 24 September 2015 (UTC)
  • It's okay, Gloss. Thanks for the quick reply. Perhaps whenever you are more free. Good luck with your work! starship.paint ~ KO 00:41, 26 September 2015 (UTC)
