Tim Waggoner[edit]

Hi, Paul! Do you have any sources to add to Tim Waggoner to help get that tag removed? BOZ (talk) 13:11, 16 July 2015 (UTC)

RE: BOTDF[edit]

Ah, interesting. I know this is a longstanding allegation that has been added to the article multiple times, but I never really did any legwork myself on its veracity (usually, someone else comes along and cleans it up before I get to it). Certainly, if the editrequested material had been added to the article page, a BLP revert would be very much in order, but it makes me a little uneasy to see that happen on talk pages; I really think the requester was doing what you're supposed to do with controversial topics - broach the subject on the talk page and get some input. That said...I don't really want to do much more work on that page than I already have; I wish enough people had it on watchlists that I could feel confident removing it from my own, and as it stands, it's sort of just an albatross that I watch with minimal vigilance, removing the most egregious vandalism.

@Chubbles: Yes, I feel similarly, and would like to remove it from my watchlist. The contentious content and its sources were discussed, at least briefly, here. As for the talk page edit request, I do see where you're coming from. My BLP revert was heavy-handed for sure, but due to the comment about "ongoing rape allegations" and that much of the online commentary might be originating from 4chan. Also my AGF-meter goes a bit wonky when the IP editors write things such as "this is important information that is being withheld". Paul Erik (talk)(contribs) 12:42, 4 August 2015 (UTC)

Forgotten Realms novels[edit]

Hi, Paul! Would you be able to take a look and see what you can find for the following articles? There may be more, but please start with these.

Thanks. BOZ (talk) 02:40, 28 August 2015 (UTC)

Hi BOZ. I haven't completed searches about all of them, but there is this about Greenwood and his works; I'm not sure if that helps contribute to notability. The Maclean's reference is Bethune, Brian. "Prophets without honour", Maclean's 115.35 (Sep 2, 2002): 48. Paul Erik (talk)(contribs) 03:21, 2 September 2015 (UTC)
Great, that does help a bit with one of the books - got anything else for the others? :) BOZ (talk) 13:41, 2 September 2015 (UTC)
