Cillian Murphy[edit]

Not a problem. I do what I can to keep the article in good status. By the way, congrats on the new baby! Ms. Sarita (talk) 04:08, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for the good wishes. And it's great to know that more editors are working actively to keep Cillian Murphy at FA. --Melty girl 04:38, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

IPA of Cillian Murphy[edit]

Thanks for fixing that, some people seem to get touchy when vowels are reduced to schwas (even when it's reality), so I tend to play it safe (plus I'm never confident with the Irish and the Scottish accents...). I almost went for the two-syllabled /ˈkɪljən/, and I couldn't find a good citation for any pronunciation. — ˈzɪzɨvə (talk) 06:07, 9 September 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, I'm not sure how to cite him saying his own name in an interview, but that's all I can think of. Hmmm. Funny that people don't like schwas -- I had no idea about that! I wonder why. --Melty girl 21:05, 9 September 2008 (UTC)

The Juno Effect[edit]

Someone added in a section about how Juno's being blamed for the rash of teen pregnancies. I added in a rebuttal from Jason Bateman, but it'd be great if you could look it over.--CyberGhostface (talk) 00:51, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

Nice addition. I think it looks OK, much more valid than what appeared last time, in terms of better sourcing. Nonetheless, I think it's a bullshit theory. What I think would be great is if someone could find a quote about how there was teen pregnancy before Juno and will be afterward, and that Juno only reflects the culture, as does our obsession with pregnant celebrities, teen and otherwise. And it would be great if someone would actually say whether teen pregnancy is up statistically, and if so, how that might be affected by actual policies that more directly impact teens, like abstinence only sex education and the reduction in contraception and abortion services. I'm sure someone sane in the press has commented about this, but I don't have time to research it myself. Good luck. --Melty girl 03:04, 10 September 2008 (UTC)
I'm thinking of nominating Juno for FA once the peer review wraps up and is fully implemented. Can you spare enough time to be a co-nominator with me and help field the endless stuff the FACers dish out? I'm thinking of nominating in early October.--Wehwalt (talk) 22:22, 22 September 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for asking -- I wish I could do it. I'm traveling with my baby October 9 through 17, and I have a lot I need to accomplish before then. I don't think I could be a co-nominator at all at this point, but I could probably help some if you wait until late October. But of course, please do go ahead if you're all ready to go. Has the article had a peer review yet? (I'm behind on recent developments.) You might also want to ask Erik, Girolamo, Belovedfreak or another editor who's ushered a film FA through if they have time to read it and give you suggestions. (I don't recommend that you throw it open to WikiProject Films generally.) --Melty girl 03:31, 23 September 2008 (UTC)
I'll wait till everything settles down anyway. I was "second chair" on the Borat FA, but Lenin and McCarthy did much of the work.--Wehwalt (talk) 19:58, 23 September 2008 (UTC)
Gotcha -- keep me posted. Thanks, Melty girl 00:09, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

Bríd Ní Neachtáin[edit]

I know your Irish actor interest and while adding some new people to List of people on stamps of Ireland saw that Bríd Ní Neachtáin does not have any entry. Perhaps you could find some time to start one between feeding the new baby and other real life issues. Keep well. ww2censor (talk) 22:22, 13 September 2008 (UTC)

While I have long been generally immersed in pop culture, my obsession with actors who are Irish in particular doesn't extend beyond a party of one, an actor of particular talent and attractiveness that happened to knock my socks off and lead me to watch more Irish films than I had in the past. I must confess, being American, I've never heard of Bríd Ní Neachtáin. And I've removed most other actors (perhaps 30 of a variety of English-speaking nationalities) from my watchlist because of time constraints. But thanks for thinking of me. I hope you are well! --Melty girl 04:39, 14 September 2008 (UTC)

Panic[edit]

Hey Melty!! I just saw the note you'd left (several weeks ago) about the Panic of 1907. I'm glad you enjoyed the article! I was just saying that I started working on this article before the current financial mess got so bad, and it sure ended up being much timelier than I would have hoped :( How are things with you?? How's the Melty Baby? --JayHenry (talk) 05:02, 24 October 2008 (UTC)

Wow, you've got your finger on the global pulse! And it's racing... The Melty Baby is doing great! She actually had some pretty severe complications when she was born, including surgery, but she's doing just fine now. What she had is so rare, there's no WP link to offer for it: congenital lobar emphysema. The upper lobe of her left lung was removed when she was 12 days old. After a roller coaster ride of a week, she came home for a second time, and she's been thriving ever since. How are you? I skimmed your talk page briefly -- do you have a WikiStalker? Ugh. --Melty girl 05:41, 24 October 2008 (UTC)

Just a note[edit]

Very diplomatic! Wildhartlivie (talk) 03:32, 29 October 2008 (UTC)

I hope so... I tried! --Melty girl 03:56, 29 October 2008 (UTC)

WP:FILMS Questionnaire[edit]

As a member of WikiProject Films, you are invited to take part in the project's first questionnaire. It is intended to gauge your participation and views on the project. At the conclusion of the questionnaire, the project's coordinators will use the gathered feedback to find new ways to improve the project and reach out to potential members. The results of the questionnaire will be published in next month's newsletter. If you know of any editors who have edited film articles in the past, please invite them to take part in the questionnaire. Please stop by and take a few minutes to answer the questions so that we can continue to improve our project. Happy editing!

Hello, congratulations on your new baby girl! :) I hope she is healthy and growing well. I was wondering, are you able to take any time to fill out the questionnaire linked above? —Erik (talkcontrib) 15:17, 4 February 2009 (UTC)
Thanks, Erik! She is doing great! I will take a look at the questionnaire. I have a new job and precious little time for editing right now... :( --Melty girl 04:11, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

WikiProject Films[edit]

In the past year I remember two discussions on the talk pages for the film project. One was about the release date in the infobox and the consensus was this is supposed to be the first THEATRICAL release and shouldn't include film festival showings. The other one was about plot summaries and the consensus was they should not include cast member names. The changes you made to The Wind That Shakes the Barley didn't follow these decisions. 67.79.157.50 (talk) 14:41, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

Sorry, but you are incorrect about both, according to the current versions of the WP:FILMPLOT and WP:FilmRelease guidelines. Your memory may be correct, but if it is, both have since changed. I'll let you read the guidelines for yourself rather than rehash them here. I've also made changes at the article, and in my edit summaries, I've quoted the relevant sections of the guidelines. --Melty girl 06:01, 14 February 2009 (UTC)
I believe you are misinterpreting the information at WP:FilmRelease. It says, "Release dates should be restricted to the film's earliest public theatrical release." When it says to restrict its first release dates to majority English-speaking countries only, it doesn't mean you should list all of them, it means you should list only the earliest release date in one of those countries. You have listed too many release dates in the infobox for The Wind That Shakes the Barley. If you think I'm wrong, start a discussion on the film project talk page. 209.247.22.164 (talk) 16:49, 14 February 2009 (UTC)
You're being a little strange about this, quoting only the first part of the guideline and ignoring the other parts you don't like. I don't know what else to say to you, except to point out that this is the full guideline:
The film infobox is too small to reproduce the long lists of release dates provided by the Internet Movie Database. Release dates should therefore be restricted to the following:
* The film's earliest release, whether it was at a film festival or a public release.
* Its first release dates in majority English-speaking countries only (because this is the English Wikipedia); e.g., United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, etc. In some cases, it may be necessary to distinguish between limited releases and later wide releases.
* Release dates in the country or countries that produced the film.
* In some cases, release dates in countries that are the subject of the film (e.g. Munich is not an Israeli film, but it is not trivial to know when it was released there).
I do not wish to discuss this here further. Please restrict further conversation to the relevant talk pages. Thank you. --Melty girl 00:33, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

Genre of 28 Days Later[edit]

Hi Melty. I just noticed you changed back 28 Days Later to a "science fiction movie" (actually, you did better, leaving the "horror" genre as well). I still contend it's mostly a horror movie, with all the trappings of the genre. The "virus" is just an excuse to have zombie-like critters and to explain the zombie-like bite infecting you, but it's not really explored. There is no science, futuristic or otherwise, in this movie. Calling it SF feels to me like calling Apocalypse Now an "action" movie because, technically, there is a scene of someone firing a gun at someone else ;-) 201.216.245.25 (talk) 22:01, 3 November 2009 (UTC)

I agree with you that it's part of the zombie tradition. But it's also part of the sci fi imagined-apocalypse-in-the-near-future genre, where humans cause their own extinction and a small band of survivors struggles against the odds. It's both. So I disagree with your Apocalpyse Now as action movie analogy. --Melty girl 05:26, 4 November 2009 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Pride 2014[edit]

Hi Melty girl. In case you are not aware, there is an upcoming campaign to improve coverage of LGBT-related topics on Wikipedia, culminating with an international edit-a-thon on June 21. See Wiki Loves Pride 2014 for more information. If you are interested, you might consider creating a page for a major city (or cities!) near you, with a list of LGBT-related articles that need to be created or improved. This would be a tremendous help to Wikipedia and coverage of LGBT culture and history. Thanks for your consideration, and please let me know if you have any questions! --Another Believer (Talk) 16:12, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Pride![edit]

You are invited to participate in Wiki Loves Pride!

  • What? Wiki Loves Pride, a campaign to document and photograph LGBT culture and history, including pride events
  • When? June 2015
  • How can you help?
    1.) Create or improve LGBT-related articles and showcase the results of your work here
    2.) Upload photographs or other media related to LGBT culture and history, including pride events, and add images to relevant Wikipedia articles; feel free to create a subpage with a gallery of your images (see examples from last year)
    3.) Contribute to an LGBT-related task force at another Wikimedia project (Wikidata, Wikimedia Commons, Wikivoyage, etc.)

Or, view or update the current list of Tasks. This campaign is supported by the Wikimedia LGBT+ User Group, an officially recognized affiliate of the Wikimedia Foundation. Visit the group's page at Meta-Wiki for more information, or follow Wikimedia LGBT+ on Facebook. Remember, Wiki Loves Pride is about creating and improving LGBT-related content at Wikimedia projects, and content should have a neutral point of view. One does not need to identify as LGBT or any other gender or sexual minority to participate. This campaign is about adding accurate, reliable information to Wikipedia, plain and simple, and all are welcome!

If you have any questions, please leave a message on the campaign's main talk page.


Thanks, and happy editing!
