Graig Weich[edit]

You've done a lot of work on Graig Weich - would you like to opine on Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Graig Weich? I think the consensus is fairly clear to delete, but if you'd like to explain otherwise, it would be terrific.--SarekOfVulcan (talk) 18:15, 12 January 2016 (UTC)

Talk:Spider-Man and the X-Men[edit]

There is a dispute at Talk:Spider-Man and the X-Men over whether a redlink editor's edits violate WikiProject Comics guidelines as fancruft and issue-by-issue synopses. A comparison of two versions is here. I am writing to some longtime Project editors individually, since Portal talk:Comics appears to have very little traffic and Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Comics/Notice board has had no postings in years. --Tenebrae (talk) 19:27, 28 February 2016 (UTC)


Hi. I noted that you blocked this editor for a couple of weeks 3 years ago for adding unsourced material to articles. He does not seem to have stopped doing that, and I've just put a strongly worded warning on his talk page. Would you mind keeping an eye on his edits? I think that CIR may be an issue here.

Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Emily Ratajkowski/archive3[edit]

I am taking one last run at getting Emily Ratajkowski promoted to WP:FA in time for a 25th birthday WP:TFA on June 7th. Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Emily Ratajkowski/archive3 needs discussants. Since you have made at least 10 edits to the article, I am hoping you might give some comments.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 01:58, 23 March 2016 (UTC)

Frank Cho[edit]

Hello, Nightscream My edit to the Frank Cho article was deleted recently because it did not have adequate citations. The only article I'm aware of that backs my claim--that an early version of the strip "Liberty Meadows" first appeared in his high school paper, The High Point Beacon (High Point High School, Beltsville, MD) in the late 1980s, was published in issue #6 of Hogan's Alley magazine. This citation is mildly problematic for two reasons: It is not archived online (Hogan's Alley is only available in hard copy print) and because I am the author of the article I would be citing.

I admire the degree of academic rigor you put into these articles, but worry that common sense methods to check my claim are being discarded. Frank Cho is pretty easy to contact through his own website, for instance. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Arqueille (talkcontribs) 08:08, 27 March 2016 (UTC)

Nightscream, I'll see what I can find. I've moved to Korea recently and don't have access to my old magazine collection, but can make some inquiries via e-mail.Arqueille (talk) 12:07, 27 March 2016 (UTC)

Awesome notice[edit]

Thank you for placing that awesome notice of site policies at Talk:Stunning and Brave, that is sorely needed for editors to read.

Did you find that somewhere else, or draft it up yourself ?

Cirt (talk) 20:54, 3 April 2016 (UTC)

Thanks again. Your thoughts would be appreciated at that talk page, specifically regarding unsubstantiated claims in the article's intro lede sect. At present, the article fails WP:LEAD, namely material in the lede sect does not then appear later in article body text. — Cirt (talk) 22:03, 3 April 2016 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Emily Ratajkowski/archive4[edit]

You were involved in one of the prior WP:FAC or WP:PR discussions about Emily Ratajkowski. The current discussion at Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Emily Ratajkowski/archive4 needs more discussants. In my prior successful FACs, success has been largely based on guidance at FAC in reshaping the content that I have nominated. I would appreciate discussants interested in giving guidance such guidance.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 03:55, 26 April 2016 (UTC)

Disputed non-free use rationale for File:Skeptic-1.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Skeptic-1.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this file on Wikipedia may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content.

Elián González[edit]

Can you rewrite the whole article into the biography about the boy who turned into a man? The whole page looks... drifting away from being a biography rather than it is supposed be. --George Ho (talk) 07:16, 8 June 2016 (UTC)

The article has background of Cuban-US relationship. What about Elian's childhood before his arrival to the US? --George Ho (talk) 18:29, 8 June 2016 (UTC)
No, no. Guess I'll be fine with the background. No need to add intricate details about his pre-US childhood... for now. It's that someone suggested that layouts be changed to make the article more of a biography. Or maybe copy editing perhaps? I can't say. Nevertheless, bd2412 said that the lede must be rewritten to introduce the person to the readers, not the event (or the affair/custody battle, whatever it was called). --George Ho (talk) 18:53, 8 June 2016 (UTC)

I added the infobox and slightly rewrote the opening sentence. --George Ho (talk) 17:13, 10 June 2016 (UTC)

Aaron Lopresti[edit]

Hi Nightscream. I just updated the picture of Aaron Lopresti at his request. No offense but he didn't like the picture that was on his page previously. -- (talk) (User:Ducksgirl) 16:07, June 9, 2016‎ (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:JuniorSkeptic.jpg[edit]


Thanks for uploading File:JuniorSkeptic.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. --B-bot (talk) 17:47, 14 June 2016 (UTC)

Spider-Man (Miles Morales) and Rtkat3[edit]

Hi Nightscream, have you considered taking your complaints about Rtkat3 to ANI? I've had numerous problems with him over the years and I too have tried to get him to stop adding indiscriminate in-universe cruft to articles, but he seems to have great difficulty wrapping his head around that, apparently believing that ponderous textwalls are the goal. I'm not sure what conversation or experience is going to finally get it across that this is not Wikia. Maybe a topic ban from all entertainment articles? It would seem a shame--he's got 94,000 edits, but what's the alternative? I genuinely believe he doesn't understand what the goal of this encyclopedia is. Anyhow, what I'm saying is that if you did open a case, I'd be willing to contribute my thoughts. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 03:43, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

In my defense for the "Other media" section of Miles Morales, I thought that the episode would help detail about where he got his Kid Arachnid codename. If that is wrong, I apologize for that. --Rtkat3 (talk) 15:08, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

As you know, Miles Morales has been starring in Spider-Man Vol. 2 at the time when Peter Parker was traveling the world promoting Parker Industries. If you have read the comics about him, I was wondering what you thought of the series so far. --Rtkat3 (talk) 15:08, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for July 8[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited List of Preacher characters, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page One-shot (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Miles Morales in Civil War II[edit]

Hi, I was wondering if you would allow any information about Miles Morales' role in Civil War II added to his page if anyone thinks of doing that. The issue in question is "Spider-Man" Vol. 2 #6 which will have him deciding which side to take. --Rtkat3 (talk) 16:01, 21 July 2016 (UTC)

Bolding phrases that are targets of redirects[edit]

Yes, you were right – bolding timeless physics in the Julian Barbour article wasn't necessary, but that's only because this is the same as the section heading. Had it been different, it would have been bolded per WP:R#PLA. Thanks. Uanfala (talk) 06:13, 28 July 2016 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Alexis Hernandez[edit]

Hello Nightscream,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Alexis Hernandez for deletion, because the article doesn't clearly say why the subject is important enough to be included in an encyclopedia.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. David.moreno72 06:59, 15 August 2016 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Amy Reader[edit]

Hello Nightscream,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Amy Reader for deletion, because the article doesn't clearly say why the subject is important enough to be included in an encyclopedia.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. Joe Roe (talk) 23:20, 24 August 2016 (UTC)

(talk page watcher) Joe Roe you missed the fact that Nightscream created Amy Reader (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs) as an entirely plausible redirect. Today an IP performed a little nonsense/vandalism editing. The redirect does not need deletion - speedy or otherwise - so I have changed it back. It is always worth taking a thorough look at the edit history in situations like this. I only know this because I made the same kind of mistake years ago. MarnetteD|Talk 01:17, 25 August 2016 (UTC)

The Hudson Reporter[edit]

Hello Subject: Hoboken Reporter Link: "The Hudson Reporter’s headquarters moved to 1400 Washington St. in Hoboken in 1995 from a smaller office in a basement "across the street."" Here is my question. I have pasted here the line that state that the office was from across the street from 1400 Washington. So why is the info not correct since i link to source file. I know I should paraphrase however I am past here to show that in fact that the written information can be cited. Also 1400 number can only mean that its on a north west corner. This is the Hoboken grid. Please advise. Jean-Paul Picard (talk) 18:53, 1 September 2016 (UTC)picardvisn@aol.comJean-Paul Picard (talk) 18:53, 1 September 2016 (UTC)

Spider-Woman (Gwen Stacy)[edit]

I want to thank you for your contributions to Spider-Man (Miles Morales). You made the article look really presentable for Wikipedia's standard for a good article. I was hoping you can help out in doing the same for Spider-Woman (Gwen Stacy). An article that's missing out on a commonly used Powers and abilities section. Also it may need copyediting in Publication history etc. Do you think we can team up to make it in GA standard? Jhenderson 777 18:45, 5 September 2016 (UTC)

I might do it myself. Just not right now. I am just better at outside universe than at in-universe material. I have't read all of Spider-Gwen either. It's an important article to me mostly because I started it. Thanks for your contribution though. Jhenderson 777 23:56, 5 September 2016 (UTC)
