Birthday of Jessica Walter[edit]

I'm curious about where you found a citation for restoring January 31, 1941, as the date of birth in Jessica Walter. I still don't see any source for that date, but I apologize if I have overlooked that documentation. Eddie Blick (talk) 21:24, 29 May 2021 (UTC)

@Teblick: Oh? I was cleaning up the article after Walter passed, and I don't think I would have overlooked a missing date citation, but it was on instinct to undo an edit that just took out date templates - vandals do it on the daily. If there isn't a cite, feel free to revert back. Kingsif (talk) 21:30, 29 May 2021 (UTC)
Since our exchange of edits, I have found a source for her date of birth. I'm going to add it now. Eddie Blick (talk) 21:47, 29 May 2021 (UTC)

Reviewing[edit]

Hi! I'm considering reviewing good article nominations; do you have any advice? Best regards! --NoonIcarus (talk) 16:33, 30 May 2021 (UTC)

Hi, that's great! Is there any specific part of the process or criteria you'd like to know more about? And my general advice is to get the copyvio check done first - not only can it be tricky (and if the copyvio is bad you save yourself drawing out a review) but it can also reveal spots to look at for the rest of the review, like prose issues, NPOV, and broadness. I always give feedback for general improvements as well as what is strictly required to "pass", because the GA process really boils down to article improvement, but other reviewers don't, and you'll probably pick up your own style after a few. For your first review, I'd suggest a shorter article, and perhaps one that has already been formally assessed for B-class. Kingsif (talk) 17:46, 30 May 2021 (UTC)
Excellent, I understand. I was wondering mostly about how detailed the observations should be, but I guesss this gives me a fair idea of the review. Rest assured that I would let you know about any possible questions during the process. Many thanks! --NoonIcarus (talk) 18:21, 30 May 2021 (UTC)

The House of Flowers: The Movie[edit]

I noticed that you removed the PROD tag that I had added to this article. You're rationale was that it is "clearly notable", however, you left the "notability" tag, which makes me wonder if you really think the film is notable. Can you expand on why it is "notable" enough to have the PROD removed but not notable enough to remove the notability tag, which clearly questions whether it is truly notable or not? Thanks! Donaldd23 (talk) 12:55, 3 June 2021 (UTC)

@Donaldd23: I also noted it wasn't yet out; looking at the TV series and 2019's related movie, there is a clear precedent that it is notable almost purely by existing, but as it hasn't yet been released, the sources for that are few. Until there are significant sources, it needs the notability tag (which is focused on finding sources, not declaring the subject is non-notable). But yes, a Netflix movie made by one of Mexico's biggest directors based on his award-winning TV series is notable. It could be deleted as CRYSTALBALL(?), but is coming out this month so that move would be pretty pointless in practice. Kingsif (talk) 13:04, 3 June 2021 (UTC)

Talk:Shalmaneser V/GA1[edit]

Kingsif, I hope all is well with you. This review was opened back on April 5, and the reviewer stopped editing on April 10. They have disappeared for months at a time in the past, and leave the nominators hanging; this isn't the first time I've had to find replacement reviewers for them. (There's another review that they opened the same day and never began; I think for that one I'll just have the review page deleted, since we have the backlog drive coming up in ten days.) I was wondering whether you'd be willing to take a look, see whether the issues listed were addressed as fully as needed, and see whether there are any other issues that need to be addressed. In short, to finish the review. Either way, thank you for considering taking this on. BlueMoonset (talk) 05:12, 20 June 2021 (UTC)
