Carol (film) : Deletion of "British-American" from lead section[edit]

Hi. Regarding your removal of this attribution: I just posted a question about it in the Manual of Style/Film talk page. Thought you might be interested. Pyxis Solitary talk 05:25, 26 November 2017 (UTC)

Your collection[edit]

That's quite a collection of DVD and Blu-rays you have, mate! Do you, per chance, have the ancient DVD copy of Species? I was thinking of using its 8-page booklet as a source in that article, as I have decided to bring it first to the A-class quality and then FA. Regards, Slightlymad 07:22, 21 January 2018 (UTC)

@Slightlymad: I'm afraid I don't. That being said, I'd be willing to purchase that eBay copy there for the sake of my collection and for the quality of the film's article, but it'd probably be in early February when it arrives to my home. If you'd prefer to buy it instead, then let me know. Cheers! –Matthew - (talk) 20:12, 21 January 2018 (UTC)
Nah, you carry on and buy it; I don't live in the US, nor is eBay a thing where I come from anyway. Please email me a copy of the booklet when you get your hands on it. Thanks, Slightlymad 01:54, 22 January 2018 (UTC)
Will do! –Matthew - (talk) 10:44, 22 January 2018 (UTC)

@Slightlymad: The DVD came in the mail today! I scanned the pages of the booklet and present them to you below:

Good luck with bringing it to FA status, and cheers! –Matthew - (talk) 20:21, 2 February 2018 (UTC)

Milicent Patrick[edit]

Hey -- I have a copy of The Lady from the Black Lagoon, the new biography on Milicent Patrick. What do you think you'll need to cite from it in order to fix the article? Let me know, and I'll see how I can help. :-) Stolengood (talk) 05:43, 28 March 2019 (UTC)

@Stolengood: I appreciate your willingness to help! It's kind of hard to tell what I'd specifically like to cite since I don't actually have the book, but I'm sure that there must be information in the book that can be used to expand the content of the article. I assume that the book includes extensive information on her experiences with Creature from the Black Lagoon and on how she was denied credit for her design work, so that could be added, and if the book includes information about her early life and childhood, personal and romantic relationships, and post-Creature career, that would be worth adding too. –Matthew - (talk) 16:55, 28 March 2019 (UTC)
@MatthewHoobin: -- I'll have to dive deep to be sure of page numbers for cites, but Milicent Patrick grew up in, of all places, Hearst Castle. Her father, Camille Rossi, was the structural engineer in building large parts of the estate, so his whole family lived on the property for as long as he was employed. After he was fired, they moved to Glendale, and from there Milicent Patrick started her professional career. :-) Stolengood (talk) 00:26, 29 March 2019 (UTC)

Sapeh[edit]

In June 2016 you added a "Cleanup-reorganise" tag to the article Sapeh. Looking at the article, I don't know what to do differently. It resembles a million other musical instrument article stubs. I am removing the tag and alerting you. If you can give me some idea of a different organization, I will do it for the article. Cheers, Jacqke (talk) 11:14, 25 July 2019 (UTC)

@Jacqke: Ah, do forgive me; I'm more knowledgeable with Wikipedia now compared to three years ago. I think it must've been the placement of the images that bothered me. I've placed them into their own Image gallery section. Thank you for reaching out! –Matthew - (talk) 12:56, 25 July 2019 (UTC)
Thank you. I ·appreciate your taking a look. I'm working through some the old instrument articles. Jacqke (talk) 14:39, 25 July 2019 (UTC)

King of the Monsters[edit]

Please keep in mind that when you move pages like King of the Monsters, it leaves behind a whole load of incoming links to be dealt with. Thanks, Leschnei (talk) 13:17, 25 July 2019 (UTC)

@Leschnei: Thank you for reminding me! I've fixed several links which are now no longer listed on the page for what links to "King of the Monsters". It looks like everything else that links to King of the Monsters (the disambiguation page) is either supposed to link there, or is linked from old bot reports or user talk page discussions from years ago. Since the latter categories were active before the page move, do you know if those should be updated to reflect the change? –Matthew - (talk) 13:38, 25 July 2019 (UTC)
I don't think that we have to worry about bot reports or talk pages. There were 15-20 items in the 'what links to King of the Monsters' list a while ago. I changed them all to King of the Monsters (video game) or King of the Monsters 2; hopefully I got it right. Leschnei (talk) 13:44, 25 July 2019 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of XavlegbmaofffassssitimiwoamndutroabcwapwaeiippohfffX[edit]

Notice

The article XavlegbmaofffassssitimiwoamndutroabcwapwaeiippohfffX has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Fails WP:NBAND and WP:TOOSOON. Absolutely nothing on this page is a reliable source except for some minor coverage by MetalSucks, and even then the coverage isn't even for the band's music. Just a stupid band that got some minor Internet attention for having a stupid name

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Adding B-side in Beatles' singles chronologies[edit]

Hi. Are you sure B-sides should be included in the infoboxes? I think we only normally include the A-side in the chronology (unless the article is about the song that was the B-side, of course) – at least that's the impression I've long had. Can you provide a link to a guideline that supports your additions? Thanks, JG66 (talk) 13:47, 5 September 2019 (UTC)

@JG66: According to Template:Infobox song, B-sides can be added in instances of double-A-side singles, although it's unclear to me if such things are allowed for non-double-A-side singles. My edits may well have been against guidelines, but I'm not sure. If they are indeed against guidelines, then I may start a wider discussion about whether or not this should be changed. A B-side of a single is still a single, isn't it? I will refrain from further edits until we figure this out. What do you think? –Matthew - (talk) 13:58, 5 September 2019 (UTC)
I'd say that first example at Infobox song says it all: "Other Side" doesn't appear in the chronology, and nor is there a B-side (or other side) given for the other entries in the chronology. Feel free to start a discussion on this, of course. My feeling is it's wrong, from experience; also, it leads to no end of potential problems with the chronologies if B-side's different in various markets. JG66 (talk) 14:09, 5 September 2019 (UTC)
Fair point; thank you for putting it that way. I've reverted my edits to the Beatles articles. What about something like "Bullet" by the Misfits? That single features two songs on the A-side ("Bullet" and "We Are 138") and two songs on the B-side ("Attitude" and "Hollywood Babylon"). Should "Bullet" be listed in the chronology in its infobox as "Bullet", or as "'Bullet' / 'We Are 138'"? Similarly, should "Attitude" be listed in its infobox chronology as "'Attitude' / 'Hollywood Babylon'"? –Matthew - (talk) 14:17, 5 September 2019 (UTC)
Wow, that Misfits example is a weird one. To my way of thinking, it's an EP not a single, and the opening sentences at "Bullet" seem to be confused over that issue anyway. Definitely something to raise at WP Songs or Music, I'd say – I wouldn't have a clue how to deal with those examples (but then I should add that I'm really anti including singles chronologies anyway, eg this discussion). Hey, thanks for undoing those changes at the Beatles song articles. JG66 (talk) 14:46, 5 September 2019 (UTC)

Seven Inches of Satanic Panic[edit]

Concerning "EP" and "Single" at Seven Inches of Satanic Panic, the problem is the coding for the infobox, where only one "Type" is allowed. See Category:Album articles with non-standard infoboxes and Template:Infobox album. There is no problem with describing the complex nature of the release in the article's main text. ---DOOMSDAYER520 (Talk|Contribs) 14:18, 23 September 2019 (UTC)

Patty Mullen[edit]

Moin MatthewHoobin,
sorry for the lagged message, I was on vacation. I'm referring to this edit - you'll agree that a personal conversation is not a valid source. We do have the Mike Stax article - if the information there is incorrect that needs to be sourced, otherwise it's a valid source and the info needs to go back into the article. A bit awkward to "prove" something has not happened, but "someone told me" is not the correct way. Please let me know your thoughts.
Kind regards, Grueslayer 09:40, 15 November 2019 (UTC)

@Grueslayer: Is there any sort of protocol for what to do when the subject of an article says that a piece of information is wrong? I've read up on WP:BLPPRIVACY and WP:BLPCOMPLAIN, and I'm thinking that perhaps we should have Mullen contact the oversight team? Mullen reached out to me via Facebook Messenger, so I can provide screenshots of that conversation if need be. –Matthew - (talk) 19:39, 15 November 2019 (UTC)
Hi MatthewHoobin,
Wikipedia:Citing sources lists the types of possible sources quite comprehensively. Facebook Messenger is not among them. ;-) Is there any interview or other news coverage available online or in print where Mrs. Mullen communicated the same in public? Or any online or printed source that contests the Stax book passage?
Kind regards, Grueslayer 02:17, 16 November 2019 (UTC)

Re: Your removal celebrating Max von Sydow as Brewmeister Smith[edit]

I see from your personal page you have not seen Strange Brew as a favorite movie. I suggest you view the movie before judging Mr. von Sydow's performance as anything less than brilliant. I have updated the reference to site a formal film review from the timeperiod Strange Brew was in theatres. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2600:1700:1F0:6330:44B0:FE3C:5AF9:3FF4 (talk) 18:25, 9 March 2020 (UTC)

I appreciate your enthusiasm, but a description of Sydow's performance as "brilliant" would fit better as a quote in the Critical reception section in the article for Strange Brew, not in the Notes column of Sydow's filmography.

Very well written, but simply does not meet either WP:GNG or WP:NFILM. The director, Sam Wineman, has gotten some coverage, but even they may not pass notability criteria.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Your draft article, Draft:Jin Muraki[edit]

Hello, MatthewHoobin. It has been over six months since you last edited the Articles for Creation submission or Draft page you started, "Jin Muraki".

In accordance with our policy that Wikipedia is not for the indefinite hosting of material deemed unsuitable for the encyclopedia mainspace, the draft has been deleted. If you plan on working on it further and you wish to retrieve it, you can request its undeletion by following the instructions at this link. An administrator will, in most cases, restore the submission so you can continue to work on it.

Thanks for your submission to Wikipedia, and happy editing. Liz Read! Talk! 22:29, 14 October 2020 (UTC)

Your draft article, Draft:Psychicpebbles[edit]

Hello, MatthewHoobin. It has been over six months since you last edited the Articles for Creation submission or Draft page you started, "Psychicpebbles".

In accordance with our policy that Wikipedia is not for the indefinite hosting of material deemed unsuitable for the encyclopedia mainspace, the draft has been nominated for deletion. If you plan on working on it further, or editing it to address the issues raised if it was declined, simply edit the submission and remove the {{db-afc}}, {{db-draft}}, or {{db-g13}} code.

If your submission has already been deleted by the time you get there, and you wish to retrieve it, you can request its undeletion by following the instructions at this link. An administrator will, in most cases, restore the submission so you can continue to work on it.

Thank you for your submission to Wikipedia! —Nnadigoodluck 00:07, 20 October 2020 (UTC)

Danny Gonzalez moved to draftspace[edit]

An article you recently created, Danny Gonzalez, does not have enough sources and citations as written to remain published. It needs more citations from reliable, independent sources. (?) Information that can't be referenced should be removed (verifiability is of central importance on Wikipedia). I've moved your draft to draftspace (with a prefix of "Draft:" before the article title) where you can incubate the article with minimal disruption. When you feel the article meets Wikipedia's general notability guideline and thus is ready for mainspace, please click on the "Submit your draft for review!" button at the top of the page. 1292simon (talk) 07:25, 7 November 2020 (UTC)
