Talk:The Little Mermaid (1989 film)#Limited Issue DVD Cover[edit]

About the limited issue DVD cover of Walt Disney's The Little Mermaid, you should put a date of when it went out of print or when The Walt Disney Company stopped making copies of it. --PJ Pete

Grease article[edit]

What year was Grease first released on VHS during the 1980s? --PJ Pete

Walt Disney's Aladdin article[edit]

Please clean up the part in the "Controversy" headline, the part saying that Abu appears to say "Oh shit!", please edit this phrase, "this is not cut out in the DVD" to "the word "shit" was cut in the 1993 VHS release of the film and when it aired on television". --PJ Pete

William March Edit[edit]

Hello, you edited a link on the William March page to redirect to a different author than was intended. You linked to the author Mark Baker, but the author in question is yet another Mark Baker, writer of Nam: The Vietnam War in the Words of the Men and Women Who Fought There. I was only writing to say that I am changing it back, but wanted you to know why....I hate when people change my edits and never start a dialog....I know this is an almost absurd instance to relate, but I think everyone deserves an explanation. Thanks for at least caring in the first place, the William March page has never had any significant edits from anyone other than it's originator. Cheers! - Diarmada 08:08, 21 February 2007 (UTC)

Cleanup taskforce[edit]

I have added he article M. Night Shyamalan to your desk as a bio about a movie director. Please take a look at it and accept, reject or let me know and I'll reassign it. It may also be ready for closure already. Thank you. RJFJR 03:43, 24 September 2007 (UTC)

Cleanup Taskforce[edit]

Please feel free to assign yourself tasks from the list of unassigned tasks at Wikipedia:Cleanup Taskforce. Arranging assignments is too much work for me to do by myself. We have a large backlog of unassigned tasks and there is probably something in there that will interest you. RJFJR 22:14, 28 October 2007 (UTC)

Beanie Babies[edit]

I noticed you have an interest in the page List of Ty Beanie Babies. This page is a work in progress that will take a very long time to complete, given there are so many Beanie Babies. Any help is strongly appreciated.

I have been hoping for there to be a Beanie Baby WikiProject started. Even without one, I am trying to get a team together to expand all the Wikipedia articles pertaining to Beanie Babies. If you would like to participate in any way, please let me know.Xyz7890 (talk) 21:13, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

I am not interested in Beanie Babies. I landed on one page for some research on an unrelated project and found it rife with errors, which I fixed. PacificBoy 05:57, 16 April 2008 (UTC)

Earl Scheib[edit]

One can see you never worked for Scheib. If you can find better paint, name it. Is there any other body shop in the world that would attempt to paint five cars a day without screwing up three? (talk) —Preceding comment was added at 00:10, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

Whether I worked for Scheib or not doesn't change the fact that Wikipedia articles need citation. PacificBoy 15:41, 11 April 2008 (UTC)


Nah, they're not the same person, the first ones address starts with 66 and the seconds with 68, which shows that they are infact difrent people, also neither has edited for a while so a block would be pointless, considering the dynamic nature of IPs. About the the vandalism on your page, no problem, a pleasure clearing it up, all the best SpitfireTally-ho! 14:46, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

Insight on spraint[edit]

Wildlife Barnstar (V5) Alt.png The Fauna Barnstar
The afd debate about the notability of spraint has been tense with some Wikipedians withholding information on the subject. Thanks for calling these people out on their spraint. Also, the edits you did around the same time on feces, squat toilets, and anal bleaching are also appreciated. I would love to see you combine your knowledge of these things in the Wikipedia mainspace. Please let me know if I could ever help you with anything. Blue Rasberry 23:26, 30 July 2010 (UTC)

John Russell, 1st Earl of Bedford[edit]

Your edit of 24 April 2011 amending dates of James Russell from (d.1505) to (1455-1509) is unreferenced. Are you able to provide a source? My source contradicts your edit. (Lobsterthermidor (talk) 12:58, 7 August 2011 (UTC))

Still confused: the 2004 ODNB, vol. 48, p.278 states "James Russell (d.1505/6)". Scott-Thomson, who is more reliable (ODNB falls into howling error of describing him as "of Kingston Russell" which S-T, quoted as source for ODNB, went to great lengths to refute) states his date of death as Nov. 1505 (p.108). I don't know where you found your dates. Furthermore, when making a purportedly corrective edit as you did, you should have left a line ref. Sorry to have to criticise. (Lobsterthermidor (talk) 12:15, 12 August 2011 (UTC))

Xhosa people[edit]

Hi, PacificBoy. In your recent edit of Xhosa people, I notice that you have changed a number of "-ise" words to "-ize". WP:ENGVAR says that an article with a particular association with an English-speaking country should use spellings appropriate to that country. I don't know for sure whether South African English favours "-ise" or "-ize", but this page, for example, uses the word "immunisation", which suggests to me that the "ise" form is customary in South Africa. If this is so, then the part of your edit which alters these words was inappropriate. --ColinFine (talk) 23:06, 13 February 2012 (UTC)

Slowly I Turned[edit]

I reverted your edit to the "Slowly I Turned" page, and thought I should let you know why. You'd added a "By Whom?" tag after the words "also referred to" in the text "also referred to as, variously, "The Stranger with a Kind Face" by clowns and clowning aficionados, "Niagara Falls" by fans of The Three Stooges, "Pokomoko" or "Bagel Street" by Abbott and Costello lovers, and "Martha" by fans of I Love Lucy."

This tag seems inappropriate because the sentence, as it stands, goes on to answer the "By Whom?" question in detail. If you want to add a "citation needed" tags, that would be more valid.

Before I reverted your edit, I looked at some of your previous edits, and thought that they were all "good calls" - keep up the good work! (talk) 11:26, 3 March 2012 (UTC)

Total Eclipse of the Heart[edit]

I'm not really sure why you would tag sections of the article for needing sources while at the same time adding unsourced information, but I've removed the info you added because it's unsourced. Cheers. Doniago (talk) 14:15, 9 April 2012 (UTC)

Maugham Bibliography[edit]

Hello. I apologise for messing up the bibliography of W. S. Maugham's works. You're of course welcome to fix everything you think fit. I understand my remarks are too personal for this site and I promise I won't touch it anymore; but if I can help with something, let me know. To answer your question "by whom" is the 1951 Heinemann considered definitive, it is by Raymond Toole Stott, Maugham's most industrious bibliographer, whose 1973 revised and expanded edition of "A bibliography of the works of W. Somerset Maugham" is the main source, though certainly not the only one. All the best, Waldstein1981 (talk) 10:49, 24 July 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for July 31[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Baggy Trousers, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Colgate (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.

A late response to what is a musical?[edit]

It's been just over a year since you asked for thoughts about musicals. If you're still interested, I've stirred up the hornet's nest again. Willondon (talk) 14:41, 12 June 2014 (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.
