Re: BTTF[edit]

I removed a lot of the categories that was in Category:Back to the Future films, only leaving the general ones, "Time travel films", "Mad scientist films", etc. The edits I made to film articles was reinsert "Film directed by Robert Zemeckis", "Film produced by Steven Spielberg", "Amblin Entertainment films", "Universal Pictures films", those are specific categories that should be in the actual film articles, not the general "Category:Back to the Future films" category. Which was why I removed those hidden notes in first place. QuasyBoy (talk) 01:08, 6 September 2012 (UTC)

Descent 4[edit]

I do not understand your edit summary, "Admin or not, use the required process of talking about the AFD request" on your revert of my speedy deletion decline. There is no AFD request. You tagged it for speedy deletion by using a {{db}} tag with a rationale of "Speculations on a project that never took off". Speedy deletion has very specific criteria and "Speculations on a project that never took off" is not one of them. If you meant to raise it at articles for deletion you should follow the directions there. I am removing the tag again. GB fan 01:19, 20 February 2013 (UTC)

Re: Back to the Future[edit]

You don't believe that, for the benefit of a reader who hasn't seen the film, it should be explained why Marty arrived back in 1985 in a motor vehicle, but had to travel on foot to try and save Doc Brown's life? My edit did so, and in a few short words--it's not as if I added an entire paragraph of exposition on the subject. I'm not going to restore the edit, but I do believe it was valid, and your reason for reversion comes off as a bit dismissive of a reasonable plot point (i.e., why Marty was seemingly too late to save Doc, which plays into the following twist that Doc read Marty's note from 1955 after all). -- Pennyforth (talk) 18:13, 5 January 2015 (UTC)

WP:FILMPLOT states that film plots should not exceed 700 words. The article for BTTF is already 646 words so we need to be careful as to what we add to it if we wish to respect that rule. I personally don't believe specifying that the engine stalled is worth it, but hey, I might be wrong. If you believe so, please feel free to discuss it in Talk:Back_to_the_Future to see what the other editors think. If the majority decide it's worth keeping it in, we'll put it back in! -- Lyverbe (talk) 23:09, 5 January 2015 (UTC)

1955 Doc[edit]

Well the Emmett Brown article needs the age for Doc's younger self, In Futurepedia it mentions he is 41 after Marty found his mansion. Does it mean that he was born in 1924 after the novelization? Thank you. -- (talk) 11:29, 10 August 2015 (UTC)

Don't know, don't care. Futurepedia and Wikipedia are two different things and one cannot rely on the other. The only good source we can use is the one provided by the movie producers since they are the ones who created the character. That's why I believe any other source than the movie shouldn't be used. If you disagree with that, feel free to talk about it (Talk:Emmett_Brown#No_BTTF_The_Game_.5Bby_Telltale_Games.5D_information.3F.21) so other editors can discuss the issue too. -- Lyverbe (talk) 11:45, 10 August 2015 (UTC)

Well, was Doc born in 1924 or not? -- (talk) 12:13, 10 August 2015 (UTC)

My "Don't know, don't care" was the answer to that question. I have no idea and since it's not mentioned in the movie, I don't care to know. -- Lyverbe (talk) 12:31, 10 August 2015 (UTC)

Flying circuits?[edit]

Well in Back to the Future Part III article, Doc actually repaired the DeLorean time machine but not for the flying circuits as mentioned in DeLorean time machine article. Where are flying circuits located? Inside Mr. Fusion or tires? Please let me know. -- (talk) 08:36, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia is not a discussion forum. I don't know the answer to your question. Ask on a forum dedicated to BTTF. -- Lyverbe (talk) 11:35, 29 August 2015 (UTC)


What is time below November 16, 1955 in Present Time and September 2, 1885 in Destination Time? -- (talk) 22:25, 19 September 2015 (UTC)

I don't know. -- Lyverbe (talk) 12:31, 20 September 2015 (UTC)

Em dashes aren't dumb[edit]

There are dash wars? Why? Em dashes are a thing and are in pretty much every style guide around. Meve Stills (talk) 23:13, 6 June 2016 (UTC)

I never said Em dashes were dumb, I said wars about them are dumb. Yes, there are dash wars where editors argue that one is better than the other because of how they look, standards or browser compatibility. I personally don't care which one is used but, as a Wikipedian editor, I do care about edit wars. Parentheses take care of the problem 95% of the time. -- Lyverbe (talk) 23:55, 6 June 2016 (UTC)
OK, I get it if you've experienced and have grown weary of these "wars", but I don't understand why you would remove a perfectly correct usage of em dashes just because you have a personal annoyance with "wars". Know what I mean? And really, em dashes and parentheses are not always interchangeable. Meve Stills (talk) 13:25, 7 June 2016 (UTC)
To you, it's perfectly correct but, to someone else, it's not because he believes a standard dash is better and that ends up with an edit war for something that I really don't find important. Edit wars are not a personal issue, they're a Wikipedia issue. As an editor of shared articles I do not own, I cannot allow myself to use personal feelings when editing them but rather participate in a team effort by doing what I can to prevent wars using simple methods like replacing dashes with parentheses. Also, regarding "dashes and parentheses are not always interchangeable", please note that I said "Parentheses take care of the problem 95% of the time". -- Lyverbe (talk) 19:05, 7 June 2016 (UTC)
