Hi.... no problem. She's on my list.  :-) Rossrs (talk) 14:10, 12 April 2008 (UTC)

there has been a comment added to Talk:Joan Crawford, and now that the editor has explained his/her viewpoint, I tend to agree. I've replied with my own opinion, but I would be interested in hearing what you think. Rossrs (talk) 03:22, 13 April 2008 (UTC)

June Mathis

Can you tell me specifically what you don't like about the citations in June Mathis so that I might fix them?EraserGirl (talk) 03:49, 18 April 2008 (UTC)

I am still unclear as to what you want fixed. I see there is a header issue, whereas I usually labeled the Notes and Bibliography as a subheadings under References. I have made that minor change.This isn't an article I have written, I am merely keeping an eye on the format. It is on my To Do list of Screenwriters. I will give it a rewrite eventually, she has far too few references for my taste. Can you point to an example of what you want me to emulate? EraserGirl (talk) 12:53, 18 April 2008 (UTC)
  • I took a stab at a major rework of June Mathis. I haven't as yet added more material or collated the references from the Lieder book which I don't own, but I will add it to my list of things to do. If you still see issues as I go, point them out. EraserGirl (talk) 01:46, 19 April 2008 (UTC)

KYLIEX2008 Set List Dispute

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia, and thank you for your contributions. One of the core policies of Wikipedia is that articles should always be written from a neutral point of view. A contribution you made to KYLIEX2008 appears to carry a non-neutral point of view, and your edit may have been changed or reverted to correct the problem. Please remember to observe our core policies. Please review the talk page or notes within the text before making edits. Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. Dancefloor royalty (talk) 15:23, 9 May 2008 (UTC)

Kylie Minogue Wikiproject question

I totally agree with you. Most of the information contained in KYLIEX2008 and the Showgirl - The Homecoming Tour articles seems to have come from original research. I believe scans from the tour book are floating around some Kylie forums. I will look around and see if I can find an official set list for KYLIEX2008. As for the other articles on her tours, they all need a major clean-up. All original research or duplicate information should simply just be removed. -- Underneath-it-All (talk) 02:32, 10 May 2008 (UTC)

Awesome. Right now I'm going through the Showgirl - The Homecoming Tour article. It's a complete mess! -- Underneath-it-All (talk) 15:41, 10 May 2008 (UTC)

KYLIEX2008 Set List

Hey. I was wondering if I could get your advice. Apparently, Ms. Minogue plans on changing the set list for her KylieX2008 tour from date to date. Should this be chronicled in the article or should the set list from the Bercy pref. remain intact until the show is over and a official set list can be made? It seems that are cutting out songs due to time constraints and/or technical difficulties but there is not set list in the tour book and her official web page only refers to the first night's set list. Alkclark (talk) 05:06, 11 May 2008 (UTC)

So far only 3-4 songs have been cut out and a fews songs have been moved around but the change seems to be constant, however, fans are gossiping that she's changing the setlist to suit which songs were hits in the countries she is performing in. I would say that its just gossip but its turning out to be true. I was only at the Paris performance so I cannot account for the others. I really don't want this page to be come as cluttered as SG:TGH Tour or SG:Homecoming articles. Yet I feel that some fans will edit the article after every show she performs. Alkclark (talk) 07:07, 11 May 2008 (UTC)

General wiki question

Hi! I'm new to wikipedia and was wondering if you could explain to me how to cite sources in articles. In editing articles it looks like citing involves using basic programming code that I don't understand. Is there an easy way?

Thanks! —Preceding unsigned comment added by NewsEditor1000 (talkcontribs) 05:05, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

Oops, just found out that not leaving your signature is uncouth. Just found out how to do that!

Cordially, --NewsEditor1000 (talk) 05:22, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

I just cited my first source without a hitch. Booyah! Thanks for your help! Anyway, as I've said I'm pretty new to wikipedia and am still trying to grasp the general philosophy of the site. I've read wikipedia's official stance but it has some room for interpretation. I get the general idea pretty well, but still have some lingering questions, for instance, does all information need to be cited? Where is the line between common and not common knowledge? If you're ever bored I'd love to hear your take.

Re: The Golddiggers

I beg your pardon, it is rather you who are injecting your POV into a subject about which you manifestly know nothing. Your ignorance was apparent in your self-appointed first attempt to play editor of this article, when you removed the link to the website which actually represents a vastly larger number of members of The Golddiggers than the so-called "Official Website".

Taking a page straight out of the "believe-everything-you-read" book of credulity, you evidently seemed to think that because one website calls itself the "official, authorized" website, that that makes it so. Sorry, but it holds the distinction of being the "official, authorized" site only because the six individuals who established it declared it to be so.

The Golddiggers Super Site existed months before the other site appeared, is supported by nearly two dozen former members of The Golddiggers, and provides the most comprehensive, impartial and accurate history anywhere on the Internet of not only that group, but ALL of the women who performed on The Dean Martin Show. THAT is why it is essential to provide descriptive information about each of the two websites -- to distinguish between the two -- ESPECIALLY for those such as yourself who know absolutely nothing about the topic.

The creators of each website have provided brief, one-sentence summaries of what each has to offer. The Golddiggers Super Site is a completely non-commercial, not-for-profit site, and as such, is not selling anything. I assume that the same applies to the other site. Therefore, the links are there only to guide readers to destinations that can provide far more enlightenment about the topic than a skimpy article in Wikipedia is capable of doing.

The descriptions of the two websites existed for months before you launched your one-person crusade to remove them. Leaving them in place, just as they've been, isn't going to cause the earth to tremble or even Wikipedia to lose one iota of its credibility. Quite to the contrary, providing concise, factual information about worthwhile non-commercial external links is in the interest of Wikipedia readers.

If you have a lot of free time on your hands and are in need of something to do, it would be my suggestion to you to concentrate on editing articles concerning subjects about which you can bring some knowledge to the table. This clearly isn't one of them.

Interbang (talk) 00:40, 22 May 2008 (UTC)Interbang

Re: The Golddiggers

I addressed you in a tone of voice no different than the one that you used in your introductory message to me, which was not only blatantly hostile, but also wantonly arrogant, from the very first sentence. So you'd do well to turn the mirror on yourself and examine your own M.O. before assailing someone else's. You may get away with bullying others on this site, but it's a little harder when the facts of the situation don't support your case.

For starters, you're reading the edit log to serve your own biased perspective. Your claim that "At least two other editors have changed your unneeded descriptions in the external links" fails to take into account the fact that one of those edits was made by someone who replaced the descriptions with bad links, and the other was made by one of the creators of the "Original Golddiggers" website, who, months after the link to The Golddiggers Super Site was entered, attempted to shove their link in above the existing one.

The two edits that I made were to: 1) revert the links to ones that worked; 2) reverse the order of the two links to restore them to the way they had been, in recognition of proper netiquette. But of course, your insistence on the righteousness of YOUR position doesn't permit taking such factual subtleties into consideration.

And it's not just past history that you've got wrong here -- you don't even seem to be able to keep track of your own actions, taken on this very day:

Your claim that "I have no objections to the links themselves and I didn't even question the validity of them" flies in the face of the fact that your very first act in this whole episode was to remove the link to The Golddiggers Super Site, without knowing anything about it (in the process, reinforcing my contention and proving your dearth of knowledge about the subject).

At the same time, you left in place the link to the "Official Website" because you accepted its premise at face value, without having any idea of the distinction between it and The Golddiggers Super Site (yet further demonstrating the validity of a short description which contrasts the difference between the two websites).

You're plainly someone with a very profound authority complex who seems determined to carry on her officious bent even at the expense of the facts and the truth. If that characterization sounds familiar, it should be: It's what landed us in the quagmire that is the war in Iraq.

So, if you think that all of your misconduct, misreading of the facts, and misguided mission to exert your authority in this situation are going to stand you in good stead with the folks who run WIkipedia, then by all means, proceed to report the matter to an administrator. But if you believe, as indicated by your threats, that it's just me that's at risk of being banned, then perhaps you'd do well to review Wikipedia policy about those who overstep their authority in instances such as this one.

Silly FARC edit

Hi. I made a stupid edit to Revolutionary Armed Forces of Columbia. I was obviously messing around, and wanted to see how quickly it got reverted. I do think that these sorts of things show how silly wikipedia's NPOV policy can be in some cases. That the FARC is "murderous" is pretty much indisputable fact (and therefore not really POV), and you'd find a very small percentage of people who don't believe that the kidnapping of Ingrid Betancourt was "evil." Pretty silly--just thought I'd say that, you don't have to respond, and I promise not to make such "silly mood" edits from this IP again. Please don't flag me. I did one on the Burmese junta a while back that took a little longer to be reverted. Sometimes wikiusers just feel like making comments on brutal and illegitimate regimes as well as bloodthirsty jungle kidnappers from time to time.  :-) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 128.138.42.218 (talk) 02:37, 24 June 2008 (UTC)

Hey there, I've sent ya a couple emails but not sure if they are going through. Did you change addresses? In any case, check this out: Wikipedia:Suspected sock puppets/Nyannrunning (3rd). Wildhartlivie (talk) 02:00, 13 July 2008 (UTC)

IMDb.com

I have seen IMDb.com used as a reference way more than a few times. I've used it on a number of edits and no one has ever said boo about it. Therefore...can you pls explain why?

Is there a "policy" against it?

I can understand, I suppose, not using (uncorroborated) items from IMDb's "Trivia" sections, but I don't see why the filmographies can't be used. (And, in the case, the "In Memoriam" page on GeoCities seems to me to be corroboration since it backs up, and was probably the source, for in the information on IMDb.com.)

Without using IMDb.com the Pettiet article should probably be removed since there's almost no other sources about him.

Ban IMDb.com as a source and the same could be said for almost any actor. IMDb.com has become the source for the Curriculum Vitae of actors, writers, directors, producers, et al (especially for older or deceased persons).

Contrary to what you may have read I am not interested in being "combative", I just would like to know what's behind this and why the references should be removed?

As for the "Open Letter" from his manager I don't see what the objection to that is. I suppose one could do some research to find if he was Pettiet's agent, but wouldn't that be "original research"?

IMDb.com Part 2

  • You are right, obviously you did write: IMDb cannot be used as a reference (more specifically, the biographies & trivia sections which are user submitted and not fact checked). I could give a pedantic lecture about grammar, but that wouldn't be cool. Frankly, I'm getting tired of fighting (whether the "good" fight or not). I wanted to communicate to you that nothing I wrote (on your Talk Page) was written with the intent of starting a beef.

One thing I would like to say is that information on IMDb's Trivia sections are not entirely lacking fact-checking. Having a reliable source certain enhances the chances of getting an item placed on a page. Just as wikipedia, IMDb.com labors under the same libel laws thus can no more afford to post unchecked, outrageous material. Therefore I doubt that just anything is posted. I have had troubled getting perfectly fact-checked, sourced items posted for reasons that are clearly due to over-caution.

Without belaboring you with my various personal issues it should be noted that I'm somewhat dyslexic. This is not just being unable to read letters, it can also include missing entire words, sometimes entire sentences. In all seriousness, I didn't even see that qualifier to your initial phrase "IMDb can't be used as a source...". So my objection was based entirely on this clause sense I didn't ingram the parenthetical insertion. Without said insertion, you can see that I would be confused by the initial clause.

  • I have no issue, either, with your removing the aforementioned references. It was probably redundant to repeat the source, but I don't know the wiki grammar to insert one ref and then use it repeatedly (superscript a's, b's, c's, etc). While I've been around a while, I admit my knowledge of wiki mechanics isn't as deep as might be hoped for.

Bottom-line: thanks for pointing the things that you did and helping to eliminate an unintentional error on my part. And I see no reason to "challenge" anything that you did. There's a lot wrong with wikipedia, however, you don't appear to be one of them. But I'm just one man. Used to be one man could change this country, perhaps this world. But those days past into history with Reynaldus Magnus. You handled the situation with tact and professionalism, something that's all to often sorely lacking on this website.

Sorry for the length of this post; brevity doesn't seem to be in my genome.

Regards,

Good. I'm sorry if I came off as defensive. I've been subjected to some, ah, rather "uncooperative" behavior recently in these electronic precincts. War seems a little grandiose. So does vendetta. So I chose to use beef since it fits more suitably what is usually described, in wiki-land, as a "war".
As for I searched and searched and there's not even a obituary for him which is strange the "Kathleen" who wrote the In Memoriam seem to have reached the same result. You'd think a prominent actor (even a once prominent actor) would deserve an obit. The manager comments on this as well. Either the young man annoyed a lot of people or The Machine was simply done with him. And, like garbage, they had no more use for him. A bitter commentary on contemporary Hollywood's mentality which is, of course, a reflection of the culture that supports it. The only thing rarer in Hollywood than gratitude is loyalty.
In any event, I hope to have the pleasure of working with you again.

Interested?

I know you have championed shaky articles before and whipped them into shape. I came across Cynthia Stone while doing assessments and thought maybe you might want to tackle it. Interested? Wildhartlivie (talk) 16:40, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

changes to article Jon-Erik Hexum

Hi, I've seen your alterations on the article and I think you've greatly improved it. I do miss many of the details surrounding his death, though. Is there a specific reason why you deleted them? Thanks Lenaxena (talk) 15:41, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

You're welcome

Apparently you've got an enemy in Japan who has a sausage fixation. Wildhartlivie (talk) 00:45, 20 August 2008 (UTC)

I wasn't sure, except for that sausage thing. The other changes weren't all that controversial. Ah well!! Wildhartlivie (talk) 01:14, 20 August 2008 (UTC)
You could ask for permanent semi-protection on your user page. It helps a lot! Wildhartlivie (talk) 01:22, 20 August 2008 (UTC)

I can't tell you how thrilled I am about it. So... did I send you the lithium posting, or did you see just see it? Wildhartlivie (talk) 08:39, 1 September 2008 (UTC)
No, I've done no recruiting. However, there ARE some people who share our feelings on this. Wildhartlivie (talk) 09:02, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

My edit to those pages were correct - what are your reasons for deleting them??? And what makes your opinion of any greater value than mine?

I would appreciate a swift reply Romly (talk) 17:51, 1 September 2008 (UTC)
