{{Charlie Chaplin}}

If the Chaplin template includes films in which he starred but did not direct, I will only restore if you are willing to edit out the acted-in-only films. This also goes for the Buster Keaton template. The intent of the TfD appears to be that the templates should not serve as a "starred-in" filmography; otherwise we would be inundated with actor-only filmographies! Let me know your thoughts... - CobaltBlueTony™ talk 19:17, 7 July 2008 (UTC) (P.S. I restored the Robert Redford Films template as is.)

Both {{Charlie Chaplin}} and {{Buster Keaton}} have been restored. Happy editing! - CobaltBlueTony™ talk 12:39, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

Karl Hess: Toward Liberty

Hi Lugnut: As a newbie to Wikipedia I usually don't edit pages and instead add comments/info to the discussion page so the author can decide what to do with them. In this case I hoped the author wouldn't mind. Thanks for your message, thanks for including the film, and thanks for cleaning-up my additions.

Fire!

Hi. I created Fire! as a redirect to Fire!!, the literary journal. Since you just created Fire! (film), maybe you should move your article to Fire! and we should have hatnotes at both articles alerting readers to the other (such as the one you placed at Fire!!).

Just a suggestion. — [[::User:Malik Shabazz|Malik Shabazz]] ([[::User talk:Malik Shabazz|talk]] · [[::Special:Contributions/Malik Shabazz|contribs]]) 18:57, 20 July 2008 (UTC)

My AWB tagging/assessing

In edits such as the one you pointed out, I was also moving the class and priority tags below the tag saying whether the subject was living or not. Although there isn't a lot of difference between having the tags below the living tag, it is the standard way of setting up the talk page. Having all the talk pages in the same format makes it easier to edit because the editor knows where each of the tags are going to be. In addition, only a small portion of those edits only fixed capitalization or moved a few tags around. Many of my edits, such as this one added the priority to the article. A good deal of my edits such as here and here added the biography wikiproject template to the talk page where it had not been before. While I suppose you are quite correct in that the edit you pointed out didn't do a good deal, it did help and edits like those only made up a small portion of the edits I made.

Italian film

HI just to say I am "extremely" glad somebody else is working on it. I had begun going through Mattoli's filmo but got sidetracked. There is a massive amount to develop for Italian film. I hope you keep up the work in this area and it isn't a one off ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 13:38, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know amigo. I just wish other people would have the decency to let me know about things that involve me. Keep up the good work ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 10:40, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

Your're making great progress. I'm going to see if we can stub sort the italian stub categories by decade. E.g 1950s-Italy-film-stub etc. WOuld you support this? ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 12:19, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

OK I'll make a stub proposal now. If you could comment this would be great ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 12:27, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

P.S can you begin categorizing genres by decade e,g Category:1950s comedy films. Cheers! I'll adding some posters and images to some you;ve started ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 12:45, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

I;ve been adding posters to several of your articles. If possible I would advise just copying the filmographies from Italian wiki if they are in order. ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 13:17, 1 August 2008 (UTC) If I upload the posters ahead of you, can you use them when you create the article and saving taggin them as film needs poster? ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 13:42, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

I nearly always upload a poster under the Italian title so Italiantitle.jpg ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 13:43, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

OK I've uploaded the next two for you up to the poverty and nobility. Can't find any images for them after that!! ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 13:57, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

Italian films part 2

Excellent work amigo. I've been doing some work on 1965 Italian films the other day. If there are more editors working on them I sort of feel more positive about tackling it!! Off hand I know Luigi Zampa's and Mario Soldati's films need adding, probably there is a full list on italian wiki. Also Alberto Sordi's film as a director and as an actor are mostly missing and he was one of the top actors. Keep up the great work! ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 10:57, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

On Italian wikipedia there are 770 articles on Italian film directors! We have only 200! ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 11:01, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

What I'd really appreciate is if you could work with me blueing the red links on the lists I draw up on pages like Italian films of 1965. There will be thousands of notable films and actors missing and the lists are also a good way of identifying what is missing. Also visiting any film article there are bound to be tons of actor/ cinema bios missing. Sometines it can be quite fun seeing the links between actors and seeing familiar names from films such as For a Few Dollars More appearing in other films with other known actors ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 13:37, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

If you could can you also tag the articles for WikiProject Italy. Cheers ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 20:42, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

A possible solution for American films by decade templates

Dear Lugnuts...I see that you want to keep the American films by decade templates. I came up with a compromise solution, a template that merged all of them into one. If you like it, just let everyone know on the TfD. LA (If you reply here, please leave me a {{Talkback}} message on my talk page.) @ 22:43, 14 August 2008 (UTC)

List of hip hop labels

Hi, I see you're a long-time maintainer of this page. I'm thinking of annotating entries here to indicate notability, or perhaps just annotating the more important entries as opposed to merely notable ones. Think either of these would be a good idea? 86.44.27.122 (talk) 01:20, 21 August 2008 (UTC)

Hi. Yes, if you want to expand the article, then feel free. I've mainly been involved in removing link spam to all the lists of record label lists. Maybe a table form, with key info (year formed, country, etc)? Lugnuts (talk) 07:29, 21 August 2008 (UTC)
I don't have much truck with tables, was thinking more of something like this [1] though yes, dates would be good too. Btw, rv without comment after i asserted notability for a label on the basis that redlink=nn is rude. It was added in this edit; seeing as the other labels added are notable (i actually wrote three of the articles for labels added: Winley Records, B-Boy Records and First Priority Music and will soon replace the copyvio now at Tuff City), you might afford me some simple AGF. 86.44.27.122 (talk) 18:08, 21 August 2008 (UTC)
I reverted the edit, as it failed the basic inclusion criteria of the list - IE, it must have an article before being added. Plus, the redlink had been there for sometime before I reverted it. I revert ALL redlink additions made by anonymous IP addresses. Lugnuts (talk) 18:12, 21 August 2008 (UTC)
That is not the basic inclusion criteria of the list, the redlink had been there for one day, and i'm specifically pointing out what is wrong with your application of a blanket self-made rule, sound though it may be most of the time.
When an editor makes an assertion such as this you would do well to listen, especially when the most cursory review of the edit that added it indicates good faith. 86.44.27.122 (talk) 21:22, 21 August 2008 (UTC)
I think the text at the top of the page "Note: Wikipedia is not a repository for links. Do not add URLs here. Do not add any company with no Wikipedia page" is pretty clear. And your comment "you would do well to listen" doesn't apply when dealing with IP addresses. Maybe you would do well to register an account, or make a valid contribution. Lugnuts (talk) 07:30, 22 August 2008 (UTC)
A hidden comment in article text has no standing whatsoever, and in this case is immediately superceded by reason. My comment very much applies to "IP addressses". Feel free to counter me with policy, guideline, best practice, or common sense. My breath is very much unheld.86.44.28.251 (talk) 18:57, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

Adolfo Celi

Hola. Reckon you could add some of his films? Cool I didn't know whether you just worked through director filmographies but working with some of the core actors of Italian cinema, Gian Maria Volontè included I find it tends to link a great deal of people together including directors across their films.

Polish cinema request

Hi. Two questions. Can you carry on adding the new speediable Template:Poland-film-stub and Template:CinemaofPoland to the rest of the articles in Category:Polish films.

Lists of actors... film ,televsion, stage, internet... ad infinitum...

While one can be amazed at the time and dedication it took to compile such huge but partial lists... as I have found List of female film actors, (with sublists List of American actresses, List of Chinese actresses , List of Japanese actresses , List of Indian actresses , List of Philippine actresses , List of Iranian actresses , List of Italian actresses , List of Thai actresses ), as well as 4 others now at AfD... List of male film actors (A-K), and List of male film actors (L-Z), List of male television actors, and List of female television actors... I have to wonder, "what's the point". Perhaps they could all be included in one comprehensive AfD where the pros and cons of such lists can be discussed in toto. By including them all together it may be easier to show the problems inherent in maintenance. I agree that such lists are simply lists for the sake of having lists... and unless one sets careful parameters for who to include and how and why, the lists could end up having hundreds of sub-lists and include literally millions of names. Maintaining such would be impossible. Currently there are 4 seperate AfD's for essentially the same thing... I'd put them all together myself but do not know how.

Yes, unfortunately, IMDB mistakenly list Deane as born in Austria rather than Australia. I'm currently working on an article on Deane in my Sandbox, which hopefully will go live asap.

Alice O'Fredericks

Wonderful. I was going to start some of those tomorrow. If you can start as many as you can this would be great. At present I'm occupied with Fan Milk LOL.Howz that for diverse interests? The Bald One White cat 18:58, 25 September 2008 (UTC)

Hello. I see that you are cranking out a bunch of stubs of Alice O'Fredericks' films (and, Wow, you move fast!). Could you perhaps work on snuffing out the redlinks that are shown on her article page? She did a whole bunch of films, but not all of them are notable (not even in Denmark). I left those redlinks on her article page to show the ones that will pass notability -- mostly the Far til Fire and Morten Korch films. Thanks and Cheers. CactusWriter | needles 19:34, 26 September 2008 (UTC)
Great. I'll pop in the images for the one's that I have available. CactusWriter | needles 19:47, 26 September 2008 (UTC)

I;m sure not why a large number of those films have been de linked from her article. WHat is the criteria for blanking them out. What constitutes notability? If the film is well liked or not? FOr instance Familien, the 1940 film seems to have some notability. Directed by Lau Lauritzen and Alice O'Fredericks, both notable directors, screenwriteen by Fleming Lynge who was a noted screenwriter and the film stars both Osvald Helmuth and Ib Schønberg who was noted actors?? These would be standard films we'd create by any other director, American or Italian. Crikey even some of the films by George Lucas, his shorts are really not that notable but we have them! The Bald One White cat 21:38, 26 September 2008 (UTC)

Frightening the number of red links isn't is! It might be a good idea to create a template for Lau Lauritzen later. I just noticed too that the films starring Dirch Passer, one of Denmarks legendary actors are virtually all unstarted! Those films would tie a lot together too The Bald One White cat 14:59, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

I know, I still have Roy Rogers on my to-do list with a kind of red link hell in his filmography. Aargh I see somebody pussied out and de linked them all. Lazy isn;t it! The Bald One White cat 15:02, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

Check out the new film posters on your recent articles. Interesting posters aren't they? The olive green on one of them is lurid! The Bald One White cat 16:47, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

I;ve created ASA Film. Can you link this in the articles in which this was the studio e.g the far til fire films and create a category for them cheers The Bald One White cat 17:57, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

Lau Lauritzen

I;ve made a start on Lau Lauritzen Sr.. I reckon I'll make a start on his films. Not looking forward too drawing up a template though. DO you think there are too many? The Bald One White cat 10:24, 28 September 2008 (UTC)

Well I just removed about 20 odd films which had no year as they didn't seem notable. Some of the films show up on imdb and were definately notable starring Johannes Mayer etc but many of them don't. The danish film database more than likely lists them and has information on the cast and basics etc. I have a feeling though that list may need filtering down The Bald One White cat 10:30, 28 September 2008 (UTC)

For instance google Den kulørte Slavehandler the first film on the list. See here for example. Most if not all of the films are recorded on the danish film sites and have info on the cast and crew and many of them appear to be by Nordisk Film which as you may know is definately a notable mainstream studio in Scandinavia. Many of the DVDs these days have the "Nordisk" logo on them The Bald One White cat 10:31, 28 September 2008 (UTC)

See the Danish wiki version of Den farlige alder. Notable? It doesn't have a page at imdb The Bald One White cat 11:22, 28 September 2008 (UTC)

Urggh its a tough one and not one I'm sure I want to undertake solely. I've at least linked them and am trying to make a nav plate look reasonable (which is pretty impossible). I'll probably start a few or do it gradually. The Bald One White cat 12:43, 28 September 2008 (UTC)

Well perhaps I'll take faith from Løvejagten and Capital Execution that longer articles can actually be written for such films. Perhaps I'll tackle a year at a time or something. The Bald One White cat 13:12, 28 September 2008 (UTC)

Just a note. If you are going to start some Dnaish actors can you copy and paste the full filmos from Danish wiki (only of couse if they are linked and not those horribly ugly column filmos with "instruktors"!!)? It saves time later! Cheers The Bald One White cat 14:33, 28 September 2008 (UTC)

For danish actor filmographies imdb is way inaccurate. According to it some actors only appeared in like 20 films. On the Danish film websites some of them appeared in over 100 films. Could you use danskefilm.dk or the danish film instituute as a source for number of films the actor appeared in rather than imdb. Cheers and keep up the good work!
