Help needed: Jayne Mansfield[edit]

A mid-importance article supported by WikiProject Actors and Filmmakers that was reviewed by Version 1.0 Editorial Team and selected for Version 0.7 and subsequent release versions. The article has come a long way from a fan boy mish mash to a fair enough GA. Now is the time to take it to the next level. Currently it's going through another peer review. Serious help is needed to clean up the copy. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE. Aditya(talkcontribs) 10:19, 23 April 2012 (UTC)


Hi. I saw that you deleted some popcult items from Exhibitionism. I'm not going to contest the deletion, becauise they were borderline notable, but I did want to point out that WP:IPCEXAMPLES, which you cited in your edit summary, is an essay, and is not policy (which must be followed) or a guideline (which it is recommended to follow). Thanks. Beyond My Ken (talk) 16:21, 12 September 2012 (UTC)

I understand. Thank you for pointing that out. Although I recognize it as a matter of opinion, I agree with most of the essay's points; I think it is truly a helpful guide for determining inclusion/exclusion of popular culture references (in sections which, untended, can grow toward an exhaustive list of mentions in popular culture, regardless of relevance), and I honestly think that the two examples listed added very little to the article or to the understanding of the topic. I would not have re-deleted it but for the fact that I saw other editors attempting the same thing (i.e. in agreement with me). Sincerely, MattMauler (talk) 16:43, 12 September 2012 (UTC)
Really, no problem from me with your actions at all. I'm very strongly in favor of allowing popcult sections in articles, but I also recognize that this creates a responsibility to stop them from growing like topsy, and I frequently remove trivial mentions and non-notable items from them.

Article Feedback deployment[edit]

Hey MattMauler; I'm dropping you this note because you've used the article feedback tool in the last month or so. On Thursday and Friday the tool will be down for a major deployment; it should be up by Saturday, failing anything going wrong, and by Monday if something does :). Thanks, Okeyes (WMF) (talk) 22:30, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

Copy Editing[edit]

Hai, this Indian film article Loham needs copy editing for grammer and writing style. Previously submitted for GA but failed due to language problem. See Talk:Loham. I invite you to help a hand on it.--Charles Turing (talk) 13:04, 21 October 2015 (UTC)

OK. I would be glad to help, and I will, but I cannot start any substantial editing until the weekend, unfortunately, 23 October. I will start soon. --MattMauler (talk) 00:49, 22 October 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
