|A Note on threading:
Interpersonal communication does not work when messages are left on individual users' talk pages rather than threaded, especially when a third party wishes to read or reply.
Being a "bear of very little brain", I get easily confused when trying to follow conversations that bounce back and forth, so I've decided to try the convention that many others seem to use, aggregation of messages on either your talk page or my talk page. If the conversation is about an article I will try to aggregate on the article's talk page.
I may mess up, don't worry, I'll find it eventually. Ping me if you really need to.
please note this is a personal preference rather than a matter of site policy

I know you do might disagree with my assertions that opinions cited and ascribed as such can be used even from the "Daily Mail" and that there is no such thing as a "reliable source" for celebrity gossip - but we tend to agree far more often than not overall. Thank you for noting my strong positions on Twain for sure! Collect (talk) 19:55, 10 November 2015 (UTC)

Hi, please explain the rationale behind this diff. Perhaps there's a relevant section in the quotations policy that I overlooked, but it seems to me that these quotes are very relevant to the article and should be included for their informative value. Thanks, --Pine✉ 04:49, 16 November 2015 (UTC)

Keen to know what you think (as Administrator)
Hello John, it's been a while. I'm trying to be as brief as well as concise, as possible. Generally in our articles about TV-series a list called "overseas" or "also aired in", is added towards the end of the article. But now has the user AlexTheWhovian imposed new language related rules. Or perhaps is it I and a few others who haven't understood ? In any case, I wasn't allowed to start a list of countries/nations in the Black Sails (TV series) and adding Denmark there, as DR3 now aires the second series. Discussion can be found at AlexTheWhovian 's talk side. (But I simply cannot get it in blue. Please go from Black Sails (TV series) -> history -> and there is a blue link to him.). The key question as I see it, is whether it's of encyclopedical value to see how well spread a certain TV-series is, or isn't it ? Should I fight AlexTheWhovian ideas, do you think ? (Though I'm so tired of the small fuss, and hence my reason to ask you for advice) Thanks. Boeing720 (talk) 02:31, 24 November 2015 (UTC)
