The Little Girl Who Lives Down the Lane[edit]

I was reviewing the article at The Little Girl Who Lives Down the Lane, and I noticed you added a {{rewrite}} tag last month. Could you be more specific as to how it should change to meet Wikipedia's quality standards? I might spend some time on a few rewrites. Thanks. Willondon (talk) 13:59, 4 November 2015 (UTC)

Hello, I have been working on expanding several article's for some time and I need someone to help me expand them, namely correcting spelling, adding more sources, and information. I am currently working on expanding the article for the influential Exploitation film classic I Drink Your Blood, if anyone is willing to collaborate with me on this please let me know.

Paleface Jack (talk) 17:14, 14 December 2015 (UTC)

Hey Paleface Jack, it would be great if you could provide a bit more information about what you would like help improving on those articles so other editors know what they're meant to be doing. You say "correcting spelling" and "adding more sources" which we can help you with. But when you say "information", could you please elaborate on what you mean by this please? Thanks!  Seagull123  Φ  23:21, 14 December 2015 (UTC)

Well for I Drink Your Blood, there is a lot of information missing on the film's production, release, reception, and legacy. I have been working on expanding the production section so far but it is just too time consuming to work on expanding the whole article by myself.--Paleface Jack (talk) 06:00, 15 December 2015 (UTC)

Hey! Just a recommendation, you might also want to post a note to the talk page of WikiProject Film if you haven't already, there are a number of film-focused editors there and you might find some interested help there. Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Film Best of luck, --joe deckertalk 15:47, 15 December 2015 (UTC)

I already did, but since is taking to long, and the fact that I already have some of the information with me I thought that I would have a go at it. Unfortunately it has become a much bigger project than I anticipated, which is why I'm asking for help.--Paleface Jack (talk) 16:43, 15 December 2015 (UTC)

I rather don't think random editors summoned by the {{help me}} template will be able to provide content help on a vintage exploitation movie. The current references seem rather weak to me, with some not mentioning the film at all. Others are duplicates. Yet others seem rather unreliable. The book you provide may be better, but unfortunately Google Books' snippet view isn't all that helpful, so you'd have to rely on people dedicated enough to either own the book or go look it up in a library. The WikiProject talk page would be a much better place to find them than your own. Huon (talk) 23:36, 15 December 2015 (UTC)

I was meaning finding additional sources for the information found in the book so that it's not just a repetition of one source like it is right now. Also I wanted more sources for information on the film's release, reception, and legacy. I have added some more information on the film's reception but it still needs more information. Information on the film's home media releases aren't even mentioned in the article and should be added.--Paleface Jack (talk) 02:56, 16 December 2015 (UTC)

The WikiProject will still be your best bet when you want to find editors who can help with that. The {{help me}} template will summon people who can provide editing help, but likely not subject-matter experts. Huon (talk) 00:41, 17 December 2015 (UTC)

Though experts would be nice right now I am focused on editing and finding sources.--Paleface Jack (talk) 16:54, 17 December 2015 (UTC)

Operation:dnapxe[edit]

Dnapxe is backward for expand. Okay screw that. I did some grammar WP:CHECKWIKI on the article you wanted, I Drink Your Blood. Its ready for us to expand i'm just trying to get more info about the film itself. But its ready when you are. SupremeRulerGFG (talk) 16:29, 23 December 2015 (UTC)

Reception sections[edit]

Hi there. "With" is a preposition, not a conjunction. That means that when you try to construct a sentence like, "Rotten Tomatoes reported an approval rating of 14%, with a rating average of 4.2", this is improper grammar. Also, per the manual of style, we spell out numbers less than ten. The previous wording in The Beast Within already did this, so I reverted your change back to the grammatically proper version. The phrasing that I've standardized on for RT may seem a bit stilted to people who prefer informal language, and I don't have a problem if people want to change it. However, I do think an encyclopedia should use proper grammar and follow its manual of style. NinjaRobotPirate (talk) 16:17, 20 January 2016 (UTC)

Leprechaun (film)[edit]

I've noticed you've added Leprechaun to a film to be reviewed as a GA at WP:HORROR. However, it does not appear to be officially nominated. Do you need assistance in getting it in the actual list? :) Andrzejbanas (talk) 18:34, 26 March 2016 (UTC)

Hi again. I meant that despite including in WP:HORROR's Good Article Nominee list, it has not been officially selected for review as a Good Article (see WP:GAN#FILM). Do you need assistance in submitting it to be a good article? Andrzejbanas (talk) 20:25, 26 March 2016 (UTC)

Leprechaun[edit]

Hello, I've done a quick GA review of the Leprechaun film article. It's looking fairly good but needs a bit of work on the plot and reception. I've posted on a review on the talk page. Great work on the article! Andrzejbanas (talk) 01:37, 6 June 2016 (UTC)

Leather Face[edit]

Hey there. I'm a little interested, but I'm not that into doing character pages as they are just...kind of hard to do. I'll see what I can contribute though as you guys have done a good job. I'll at least be able to contribute to the talk page to see how I can contribute. Thanks for inviting me to it!

I'd also suggest posting it on WP:HORROR and WP:FILM to see if anyone else would want to contribute. Andrzejbanas (talk) 15:23, 11 August 2016 (UTC)

No problem. I agree with you on that, character articles are a lot harder to do. But as a writer I was interested in trying something new. As for posting it on the horror and film WikiProjects, I have already done that on WP:HORROR but I doubt that anyone will pay attention to it since WP:HORROR is pretty much a dead page except for the occasional promotions to good and featured articles. I will post it on WP:FILM and see if I get anymore helpers. Thanks for the input.--Paleface Jack (talk) 15:29, 11 August 2016 (UTC)

I've been so out of major editing of articles, I don't know how many other editors are out there doing that right now (at least for horror related articles). We had such a small, active community to begin with from years ago, I don't think it's stayed. It'll just take time. I apologize I haven't helped more, but I'm basically working two jobs right now at my work, so it is taking most of my time. As for getting characterization, you look through books, DVD commentary, and film reviews for it.  BIGNOLE  (Contact me) 22:32, 22 August 2016 (UTC)

No Problem, I know how it goes. Thanks for the help.--Paleface Jack (talk) 01:12, 23 August 2016 (UTC)

FAC[edit]

I appreciate that you are acting in good faith, but it is best if featured articles are nominated by people who have worked closely on them. In this way, they can give reasoned replies to reviewers and be familiar enough with the sources to act on suggested improvements. Someone who has not worked on the article can not provide this input, so the nomination may continue until opposition to it becomes so overwhelming that the article is failed; this takes away time from reviewers. While the The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari article is of reasonable quality, it is not yet of featured quality, and principal contributors must be consulted before a nomination, as required in the featured article candidate instructions. --Laser brain (talk) 12:10, 16 August 2016 (UTC)

Texas Chainsaw suggestion[edit]

The image that was being used as the primary identification for The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (franchise) was deemed "unnecessary" by you. Would it be more feasible, in your opinion, for me to replace it with the franchise logo? DarkKnight2149 22:47, 26 January 2017 (UTC)

RE: Leatherface[edit]

I hope so. The film was completed a while back, so the lack of news has become a bit worrysome (in my opinion). According to the special features on the Texas Chainsaw 3D blu-ray, Texas Chainsaw Massacre was intended to be Lionsgate's next big horror franchise after Saw was completed. A new Saw film is set to release in October. I wonder if their might be a corralation. NOTE to Outside Readers: Because this is speculation, it technically doesn't affect the articles mentioned. DarkKnight2149 18:22, 29 January 2017 (UTC)

The Leatherface article[edit]

I plan on continuing to expand Saw: Legacy, Leatherface (upcoming film), Hellraiser: Judgment, and Draft:Friday the 13th (2017 film) as information continues to become available.

Do you need any assistence with User:Paleface Jack/Leatherface (Revision)? I think two bits of information that might be useful:

  • In this interview with the New York Post, Tobe Hooper says that (in addition to Ed Gein), the creation of Leatherface was influenced by Baby Huey.
  • In this quote from Gunnar Hansen, he details that in the original Chainsaw film, the reason Leatherface wore masks was that the masks were meant to determine his personality (since he doesn't have one beneath the mask). For instance, he wore a Grandma mask when he was making dinner and he wore the Pretty Lady mask + a suit when going to formal situations. DarkKnight2149 01:31, 3 February 2017 (UTC)

DarkKnight2149 01:31, 3 February 2017 (UTC)

Alright. I'll help contribute to the Leatherface article. If I have time, I might also take a look at the other articles you mentioned to see if I can lend a hand. DarkKnight2149 04:00, 3 February 2017 (UTC)

Solange reception[edit]

Hi Paleface, I saw a few years(!) back you added an expansion tag to the reception section of What Have You Done to Solange?, I feel it's adequately expanded for a film that was not released in the UK or US on its initial theatrical release. You added the tag a while back. Is it good to remove now? Andrzejbanas (talk) 17:57, 7 February 2017 (UTC)
