Umberto Lenzi[edit]

Thanks for your vocal comments on the Lenzi page! Let's call for a vote on the talk page. (talk) 20:34, 21 October 2017 (UTC)

Am I being accused of vandalism for trying to fix the Lenzi page?[edit]

I just received this notice from the editor who has been harassing me for months on wikipedia and deleting all of my contributions. I thought you might be getting one as well? I'm getting accused of vandalism for trying to prevent my Lenzi filmography from being vandalized! weird huh? (talk) 20:17, 23 October 2017 (UTC) Here's the threatening notice that was posted on my wikipage..... ==ANI Notice==− Information icon There is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents regarding an issue with which you may have been involved. Andrzejbanas (talk) 20:10, 23 October 2017 (UTC)

Don't miss the voting, Wooden![edit]

When are we voting on the Umberto Lenzi filmography thing? I'm sure you'll want to be there, no? Just to keep em honest. (talk) 18:49, 25 October 2017 (UTC)

Your DVD collection Afds[edit]

I know it's a bit more work, but you seem to be nominating a lot of DVD collections with identical rationales. Please consider bundling them into a single nom. Shawn in Montreal (talk) 16:34, 3 November 2017 (UTC)

Hi Shawn. I did consider this, but also thought maybe each should be judged on its own merits. --woodensuperman 16:51, 3 November 2017 (UTC)

Birds of Prey (David Drake novel)[edit]

What is wrong with giving Birds of Prey (David Drake novel) a real page instead of it being just a redirect to the David Drake page? I felt that I was doing a useful work for Wikipedia. Blanche of King's Lynn (talk) 15:03, 24 November 2017 (UTC)

Since Wooden didn't answer you, there is nothing wrong with it. Randy Kryn (talk) 11:42, 30 November 2017 (UTC)
I'm not even sure why I was asked about this - I don't recall any involvement. --woodensuperman 11:47, 30 November 2017 (UTC)

Victoria tv series title[edit]

In the talk page there is mention of you being involved in some other action that it is recommended that the action on the proposed title change to Victoria be on hold until some other action is resolved. What is that action and can you provide a link to it? I would agree with you about the title change as in the long run WP has to look at what can be done now to avert situations in future otherwise as articles increase there will be a need to address the issue and WP does have to look toward a more international approach to information gathering than just one group of people versus the world. Thank you.2605:E000:9143:7000:3832:5234:5BA4:7DB6 (talk) 01:44, 4 December 2017 (UTC)

Template:Sunday Night[edit]

I want to let you know that I have reverted a part of your edit on this template because I can't see any logic in it. The lists of episodes is only for King of Mask Singer (one of two current segments of Sunday Night), it's not for the entire Sunday Night program, so it's considered as related articles. You can erase the show's name which don't have the English wiki page yet, as you have done, it's enough. You can read the page of Sunday Night to understand this template's structure. Kenny htv (talk) 16:55, 20 December 2017 (UTC)

Hi Kenny htv, the main issue with the navbox is it contains the cast and crew, which isn't permitted per WP:PERFNAV. I'll remove those, but if you think it still needs restructuring, then, please do! --woodensuperman 16:59, 20 December 2017 (UTC)
Read and understood (maybe). But sorry, I can't find any common point between "Avoid adding" and "Prohibit adding". Kenny htv (talk) 17:29, 20 December 2017 (UTC)

Star Wars templates[edit]

But first a 'happy holidays' to you and yours. I've moved the contents of the {{Star Wars planets and moons}} template to the main template as well as the listed-articles of the {{Star Wars species}} template. The new section-head link to 'species' handles all the individual lettered pages (in fact is its only content), which an editor had added to the main template and I removed. Maybe those two templates can also be deep-sixed (neither of them were or are included on the main Star Wars page, so this brings their content to that collection as well). If you agree can you put them up for deletion, I've never done a deletion request so my knowledge of how that works is cloudy. Thanks. Randy Kryn (talk) 13:04, 23 December 2017 (UTC)

  • Thanks Randy, hope you are enjoying this festive season too! I'm away with only my phone for access at the moment, so will have a look properly when I can! All the best! --woodensuperman 08:31, 26 December 2017 (UTC)


FYI I've asked the editor who closed the RM to please undo it. It looks to me like an improper close. In ictu oculi (talk) 17:09, 1 January 2018 (UTC)

Can I assist...[edit] changing out the Yoko Ono templates on the singles pages or did you want to do them? I can start at the end of the section and work backwards if you'd like. Nice work on the merge. Randy Kryn (talk) 13:17, 2 January 2018 (UTC)

Oh, be my guest! I've redirected the singles template, so it should filter through eventually, but sometimes it takes a while to refresh, and you still see the old template for a while... Thanks, I think it could still be improved somewhat, as some of them are B-sides, so it probably needs looking at a little more closely, but it beats that vertical monstrosity that was there before! --woodensuperman 13:21, 2 January 2018 (UTC)
Agreed, it's much better. As long as the code will pick them up I'll wait and let our bot overlords prevail. Randy Kryn (talk) 13:23, 2 January 2018 (UTC)

Nena + Nena (band)[edit]

any idea on how to reduce the overlap between Template:Nena and Template:Nena (band)? seems like almost all the links in "Nena (band)" are also in "Nena"? Frietjes (talk) 14:46, 4 January 2018 (UTC)

I think it could probably be done with one navbox. I think {{Nena}} covers everything, so {{Nena (band)}} could probably be speedy deleted under WP:CSD#T3. I'm a little stumped as to best layout. {{Nena}} isn't perfect, but I'm not sure of a better solution, except maybe using the band names as headers for the album groups? The other option would be to remove all the band links from {{Nena}}, but this seems counter-productive... Maybe nominate for a merge, see if anyone else has a bright idea? --woodensuperman 15:14, 4 January 2018 (UTC)
okay, see the discussion. Frietjes (talk) 23:57, 5 January 2018 (UTC)

NYC year nav[edit]

what do you think about templates like Template:NYC year nav? to me, this seems fine if it's only being used in category-space, but misleading if used in articles. what do you think (there many more)? Frietjes (talk) 16:12, 15 January 2018 (UTC)

Oh, I'd not seen these before. I agree with you completely. These should not be used in article space, not least because of WP:BIDIRECTIONAL, but also because of WP:EGG. --woodensuperman 16:14, 15 January 2018 (UTC)

RM rationales reverted[edit]

[1] That wasn’t an evaluation of the arguments. It was just all the arguments. I was thinking it might aid discussion if we’re able to see all sides at once. It was meant for us, not the closer. — (talk) 16:01, 24 January 2018 (UTC)

It's really not helpful as it skews the argument towards your interpretation of the summary. It's not a good idea. If you must do something like that, do it normal text as a comment in the conversation thread, but I don't think it's worth it. --woodensuperman 16:03, 24 January 2018 (UTC)
That’s why I left it open to editing by anyone else. But I don’t think it started off particularly skewed, as I included policy-based arguments for and against all sides. But, noted. — (talk) 16:10, 24 January 2018 (UTC)

Category:Wikipedians who like Black Mirror[edit]

Hey! I saw that you edited the article Black Mirror and thought maybe you would be interested in this new user category I created?-🐦Do☭torWho42 () 05:56, 28 January 2018 (UTC)

Telenovela -> Mexican TV Series.[edit]

I agree that the change in article names is appropriate, however, I've run into two articles that have had their name changed that have needed additional fixing. When you do the moves, could you also change the DEFAULTSORT and DISPLAYTITLE entries in the articles appropriately?Naraht (talk) 14:54, 30 January 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing that out - will bear this in mind if I make some more moves. --woodensuperman 14:55, 30 January 2018 (UTC)
I think the DISPLAYTITLE is done automatically if there is an infobox television, but the DEFAULTSORT is likely to always be an issue.Naraht (talk) 14:56, 30 January 2018 (UTC)
Yes, usually it is, but I guess there are some cases where that won't be the case. I wouldn't have thought that the sortkey would be too much of an issue, as it's only the last part of the article title that's being changed, but I'll still update when I come across it. --woodensuperman 14:59, 30 January 2018 (UTC)
Cool. Have fun. :)Naraht (talk) 15:02, 30 January 2018 (UTC)

Template:Agatha Christie video games[edit]

Now it seems OK to me. Regards.--Carnby (talk) 16:18, 16 February 2018 (UTC)


I already proceeded to revert my edition. I will not waste my time with you. Well here it will be done from now on what you order.--Philip J Fry / talk 16:11, 21 February 2018 (UTC)

Venevisión telenovelas[edit]

I will ask you to please leave the templates as a redirect to Template:Venevisión telenovelas, since the previous templates are linked to too many articles, and then I will not replace anything.--Philip J Fry / talk 21:06, 25 February 2018 (UTC)

Isn't that what I did in the first place? --woodensuperman 10:00, 26 February 2018 (UTC)

Child ballads[edit]

Hi Woodensuperman. I have added a namespace switch to Template:Child Ballads complete index, it will no longer display in mainspace if someone ignores the documentation and uses it as a navbar. Prince of Thieves (talk) 15:36, 8 March 2018 (UTC)

Okay, I still don't think we should be using navbox markup for this - let's see what others suggest at the discussion. --woodensuperman 15:44, 8 March 2018 (UTC)
If there is an alternative markup that would work in the same way that would be fine, I could convert it. Prince of Thieves (talk) 15:47, 8 March 2018 (UTC)
  • Thanks for dealing with all those pagemove redirects. Prince of Thieves (talk) 12:12, 13 March 2018 (UTC)
No problem! Was just about to update Wikipedia:WikiProject Roots music/Child Ballads/Child Ballads complete index/doc. --woodensuperman 12:14, 13 March 2018 (UTC)

CBB reverts[edit]

Wow...don't appreciate all the reverts without at least giving me a heads up. Simply deleting the template from the mainspace wouldn't have been good enough? Thanks. Snickers2686 (talk) 18:38, 9 March 2018 (UTC)

I'm sorry, what? --woodensuperman 22:32, 10 March 2018 (UTC)

Template:George Hickenlooper[edit]

It's common practice to not link non-existant articles in nav boxes. Has been for as long as I can remember. (talk page stalker) CrashUnderride 00:27, 10 March 2018 (UTC)

You either link them, or remove them. See WP:EXISTING --woodensuperman 22:33, 10 March 2018 (UTC)


Hello, in respect of the editor moving various articles and categories from "...of Denmark" to "...of the Kingdom of Denmark": no, I don't know of any consensus supporting these changes. As you know, we normally use the short form of country names. I can only presume the editor's motivation is to somehow mark the distinction between Denmark proper and the entire Danish realm, which also includes the Faroe Islands and Greenland. It's a plausible idea, in fairness; see for example the separate articles for the Netherlands and the Kingdom of the Netherlands, which is a comparable situation. In that case, they both have relevant categories. For Denmark, however, the idea is somewhat muddled and I don't support the changes unless we restructure our articles along Dutch lines first. Jellyman (talk) 18:01, 15 March 2018 (UTC)

Thanks Jellyman. I also mentioned the matter to Favonian, who seems to be of a similar opinion to you and suggested dialogue should be opened with the user in question. I've left a note at the editor's talk page, but as it's not really in my wheelhouse, I wonder if one of you two would like to take the matter up... --woodensuperman 10:32, 16 March 2018 (UTC)
Certainly, I'll have a crack tomorrow if I get time to do so! Jellyman (talk) 21:53, 16 March 2018 (UTC)


Please cleanup Special:WhatLinksHere/Parker (character) so that the appropriate ones link to Parker (Stark novels character). -- Netoholic @ 12:27, 20 March 2018 (UTC)

 Done --woodensuperman 13:37, 20 March 2018 (UTC)
