List of programs broadcast by Fox

You have recently decided to add the history article. Such drastic change should be discussed on the article's talk page before being proceeded so that a consensus can be reached. Continuing to add the history on the Fox article without a consensus with the other editors is showing signs of ownership and such editing behavior may lead to a block. So please discuss changes to the talk page in order to find a agreement that will satisfy all editors. Thank you. Farine (talk) 15:57, 30 September 2012 (UTC)

No, see my edit summary: consensus doesn't need to be reached for every edit you made! List of Awake episodes was expanded in July to FL; does that also need consensus?. It is like that for featured list status, this matter has already been succeed. This article is already at FLC (featured list candiates), it is the requirements for the FL criteria. This never happens when I work or expand other articles. I don't need consensus for every single edit I make! This article is already at FLC, and now your saying that. People are already commenting. To do that as soon as I nominate it, is extremely pussy and ridiculous, articles should have lots of content like this, per WP:MOS guidelines, WP:LEDE because some of it is in article, and needs to be in lede for WP:LEDE. This is getting ridiculous. TBrandley 16:04, 30 September 2012 (UTC)
Making minor edits here and there--no consensus needed. Making major wholesale changes--a consensus would be nice just to avoid the hub-bub. Vjmlhds 16:13, 30 September 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, just to avoid another crazy edit war. "List of programs ..." have no FLs, but episode lists do, so that's maybe why I didn't need consensus for that (and simpler maybe). Not sure. I still believe it should still stay per the above and edit summaries; hmm. TBrandley 16:15, 30 September 2012 (UTC)
The moral of the story is that as soon as you're making an edit that is not well received by other editors, you should try communicating with them to find a consensus to settle the dispute. Wikipedia is a colloborative effort and that's what make it strong. Editing by ignoring the wish of other users is not how Wikipedia works. Farine (talk) 21:19, 30 September 2012 (UTC)
In all fairness, expanding a stub into something with actual content should need no consensus, consensus should never be to keep an article in a bare-bones, stub-like condition. The actual meat of the content could be discussed in order to refine it but the reverting that went on was simply abominable and amounted to nothing better than page blanking. Wiping out progress and expansion is not how Wikipedia works thanks. GRAPPLE X 21:23, 30 September 2012 (UTC)
The article was never a stub. It was a complete article with all the shows airing on the network. You guys took upon yourselves to add new features to the article, which is fine, nothing wrong with that. But when it is met by opposition from some editors, then it must discussed with them. You don't arbitrary make your own rules. That's not how things work around here. But I agree with you that this exchange of reverts, that let both Vjmlhds and TBrandley to be blocked, could have been avoided if everybody had shown a desire to use the article's talk page in the first place. I mean that's why the talk page is there for. Farine (talk) 21:35, 30 September 2012 (UTC)
A bare-bones list devoid of context is still a stub. Reverting the addition of what should be uncontroversial content is well outside of the bounds of normal content discussion. You simply can't seriously tell me that any editor should be expected to sit down and mediate between useful, sourced, neutral and solid content versus no content, and I simply won't take you seriously until you admit that blanking the page was a bad faith move. GRAPPLE X 21:42, 30 September 2012 (UTC)
It seems you were blanking the article to make a point. TRLIJC19 (talkcontribs) 21:44, 30 September 2012 (UTC)
It was not blanking. It was enclosed in hidden notes pending for a consensus to be reached. And if you're calling that a "bad faith" move then you're both clearly in breach of Wikipedia's AFG guideline.
If you want to continue this discussion, I would suggest that you bring this to my talk page because TBranley does not need to have this argument going on in his talk page. Thank you. Farine (talk) 21:54, 30 September 2012 (UTC)
Not your edit, the original blanking by User:Vjmlhds which was the cause of this dispute. WP:DUCK is worth a look in that case. GRAPPLE X 21:56, 30 September 2012 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Well, this is what I come home to, after school. I agree with TRLIJC19 and Grapple's inputs. I can now see that this has continued at Grapple's talk page. Holly. TBrandley 23:14, 1 October 2012 (UTC)

Prison Break episodes

Hello. Can you help me on the Prison Break article? I don't understand how to edit those templates. Plant's Strider (talk) 01:25, 1 October 2012 (UTC)

Sure, go on the season pages and edit (i.e. Prison Break (season 1), stuff like that,) and made them all the same width for each parameter. See List of The X-Files episodes for example. TBrandley 23:10, 1 October 2012 (UTC)

Closing FLCs

Hi TBrandley, I noticed you recently closed Wikipedia:Featured list candidates/Archbishop of Dublin/archive1. I know you acted in good faith and the article was nowhere near the standard, but you can't take it upon yourself to close nominations. We have directors for a reason and it renders them mute if a user to takes it upon himself to close nominations. The guideline you cited is not jurisdiction to take matters in your own hands and is in fact related to the deletion process and not FLC. I know you're enthusiastic about editing, but please leave this stuff to those responsible for it. NapHit (talk) 22:47, 30 September 2012 (UTC)

Understood. Since Wikipedia:Non-admin closure applied for "AfD", I figured it would be the same for this type of stuff. Sorry. I did however close it properly, added it to logs, etc. TBrandley 23:07, 1 October 2012 (UTC)
The featured article/list processes are run by directors and delegates; they are not the same as admins. In fact, some of the directors/delegates are not admins. --Rschen7754 20:43, 2 October 2012 (UTC)

FAC reviews

Hi, please take this in good faith, but can I remind you that FAC is not based on votes. Unqualified registering of support carries no weight with the FA delegates, and can make it difficult for us to decide whether consensus has been reached. We need to know why reviewers think that a candidate fulfils the FA criteria; or why they don't. I hope you will continue to engage in our FA process, but could you please give full reasons as to why you think the criteria have been met. If you want to comment only on one of the criteria, this is fine with me, as long as you make it clear that this is the case. Sincere best wishes. Graham, Graham Colm (talk) 18:08, 2 October 2012 (UTC)

Okay then, you'd like me to explain my support/oppose and which criteria, or all have been met, etc. Okay, sure. Will do from now on. I will also certainly continue FAC work and stuff. Cheers, TBrandley 00:32, 3 October 2012 (UTC)

"Going, Going, Gone" (Grey's Anatomy)

Hi. When you find the time, would you mind reviewing at Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Going, Going, Gone (Grey's Anatomy)/archive1? It's fairly short. Thanks, TRLIJC19 (talkcontribs) 00:30, 3 October 2012 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Young & Talented School of Stage & Screen

Hey there. I saw that you just closed that AfD as a speedy delete, but the article still exists. Are you sure that's the correct procedure? I wasn't 100% certain that tagging for CSD after an AfD was allowed or not, and was hoping an admin would clarify things before deleting and/or closing. —Torchiest talkedits 01:15, 3 October 2012 (UTC)

Non-admins may not close an AfD as a speedy delete, because they cannot actually delete the article. Please do not do this again. --Rschen7754 01:18, 3 October 2012 (UTC)

Drive Award

SuperiorContentReviewScribe.png The Order of the Superior Scribe of Wikipedia   
Your recognition for 61 GA reviews at the last June-July GAN Review Round. Regards. — ΛΧΣ21 04:04, 3 October 2012 (UTC)
Thanks, but I don't think I deserve though. Face-smile.svg TBrandley 23:15, 3 October 2012 (UTC)


Thanks for the review and support at GGG. I hope it garners a few more supports, and isn't archived due to those illegitimate opposes that aren't included in the criteria. TRLIJC19 (talkcontribs) 23:25, 3 October 2012 (UTC)

By the way, how's your FLC going? TRLIJC19 (talkcontribs) 23:35, 3 October 2012 (UTC)
Your welcome for the review. Try not to worry. I completely forgot about Fox programs' FLC, I've addressed them now. Thanks! TBrandley 23:59, 3 October 2012 (UTC)
Thanks, but it's actually pretty discouraging. I don't know if you saw, but I've been considering retirement due to lack of motivation. TRLIJC19 (talkcontribs) 00:01, 4 October 2012 (UTC)
Ah, that's sad. Those comments were very harsh. Don't get discouraged by the FACs! As Sophie said, "don't let them get to you". Your are an awesome Wikipedian to the project, and the whole thing itself. "GA is a great accomplishment, don't forget that" too. I will not quit Wikipedia, its too awesome for me lol. I love the work, and everything, but then that's just me. And remember, never leave GA lol. TBrandley 00:07, 4 October 2012 (UTC)
I probably won't end up quitting. Maybe a wikibreak after the FAC. TRLIJC19 (talkcontribs) 00:09, 4 October 2012 (UTC)

Sam Hofer article

Hello, I am new to this, adding entries to Wikipedia. I, along with a Hutterite scholar, wrote and edited this article today about noted author, Sam Hofer. Do you know anything about the Hutterian Brethren? They are similar to the Amish, but utilize modern technology, and live in communities, rather then on individual farms. Scholars, as well as lay-persons are fascinated with the Hutterites, and Sam Hofer, provided much information about them. They are found in Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Alberta, in most rural areas, as well as in North and South Dakota, Minnesota, Montana and Washington.

Sam Hofer is renowned within the Hutterian Brethren for his writings. I hope that this article will stay up as a tribute to Sam, as he was a leader and visionary for Hutterite's who were or are, artistic. I have done research on the Hutterian Brethren, and feel that this article — Preceding unsigned comment added by Lesleycm (talkcontribs) 00:00, 4 October 2012 (UTC)

A Change Is Gonna Come (Grey's Anatomy)

Hello! I just wanted to let you know that, within the Grey's Anatomy scope, I have expanded A Change Is Gonna Come (Grey's Anatomy). I have nominated it for both Good Article status and DYK. Since we have previously collaborated on the promotion of other Grey's Anatomy-articles, I would be tremendously thankful if you could review both the GAN and the DYK for the article. Cheers! Jonathan Harold Koszeghi (talk) 15:07, 4 October 2012 (UTC)

I have picked up the review for GA status, but won't review for DYK, as I don't have any experience or know much about it. Sorry. TBrandley 23:04, 4 October 2012 (UTC)
No worries. Thanks for the GAR! Jonathan Harold Koszeghi (talk) 07:43, 5 October 2012 (UTC)


I was wondering if you could possibly vote at Wikipedia:Featured list candidates/One Direction discography/archive1. AdabowtheSecond (talk) 19:25, 3 October 2012 (UTC)

Jackie Evancho

Hi Tate, given your expertees on all things FL and if you could spare the time, could we have your thoughts here in relation to the a question which has been posed at the bottom of the talk page? Your time would be very much appreciated. BTW, please hold off on the Joseph Grimaldi peer review for the time being. I have been inundated with comments and real life is very hectic for me at the moment. I am struggling to answer what is there currently, let alone address anything extra. Hope your well and welcome back from your brief hiatus :-) -- CassiantoTalk 06:43, 5 October 2012 (UTC)

You added a {{rename media}} tag to this file, but you didn't specify why the file should be renamed, and I couldn't identify any valid reason for renaming it. I have thus removed the renaming request. --Stefan2 (talk) 20:23, 5 October 2012 (UTC)

I have also removed your request from File:1916-17 Fighting Illini mens basketball team.png. See WP:FMV#What files should not be renamed?. You shouldn't rename files because of missing spaces or because of wrong use of capital letters. I would assume that the same applies to wrong use of dashes. --Stefan2 (talk) 20:30, 5 October 2012 (UTC)
And now I have also rejected your request to rename File:KMIL station logo.PNG. File renaming solely involving a change between uppercase and lowercase is clearly covered by WP:FMV#What files should not be renamed?. --Stefan2 (talk) 20:37, 5 October 2012 (UTC)
Okay. Understood. I'll revert all of them if there's any more. Thanks. TBrandley 20:41, 5 October 2012 (UTC)

CW shows + GGG

Lots of people don't like The CW shows, maybe because it's teen-ish... I started watching Gossip Girl when I was in high school. The first seasons were great and now I'm watching to see how it ends). I also watch 90210 , despite it's being really dumb (so I don't recommend it). I started Hart of Dixie and saw the first 15 episodes, but stopped when I had too much to watch. I'll catch up later with the rest of the first season and those of the second season that is now airing. I'm interested in Emily Owens, M.D., which is also a hospital drama and will certainly draw comparisons with Grey's Anatomy. I've never watched The Vampire Diaries because I don't like fantasy shows in general. As for the other channels, I love Parenthood on NBC and on ABC , except Grey's Anatomy, I like Pretty Little Liars and I'm interested in Nashville. I think that's it for the current shows :)

So yeah there's a timeline problem with Grey's now because in this week's episode it said the doctors were stuck in Boise for 4 days then they had to recover, which presumably took several days and during that time Mark prepared his will saying that if he were to be in a coma state which happened at the end of the episode, the doctors could remove the life support system after 30 days. Last week's episode showed the 30st day when Mark died. So logically what happpened in GGG took place weeks after the crash, but how many days that's difficult to determine. Did you watch this week's episode? Do you understand my reasoning lol? --Sofffie7 (talk) 21:39, 5 October 2012 (UTC)

(edit conflict) I don't watch any of those programs you listed, Sophie, other than Grey's Anatomy and Parenthood. I am primary interested in comedies, and animation programs, such as My Name Is Earl (live-action comedy) or Bob's Burgers/Family Guy (two animated comedies), although I am huge fan of the amazingly amazing Awake (drama, 2012), which no longer airs now so, and the new series The Mob Doctor. I watch The Middle, The Neighbors, and Modern Family on ABC, but I don't like Suburgatory. On CBS, I enjoy The Big Bang Theory and Two and a Half Men, etc. I also watch Touch, among many other shows. Regarding GA's most recent episode, no, I haven't got a chance to watch it yet, but it's recorded. :) I'm going to watch it later today (it's about 3:00 pm where I am in Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada). Cheers, TBrandley 21:55, 5 October 2012 (UTC)
I rarely watch comedy/animation series; I sometimes watch The Simpsons, it's a classic :) I wanted to start Suburgatory this summer but had no time in the end. I forgot to mention that I also watch Army Wives. I like Bones, but don't watch it regularly. Other favorite shows include Friday Night Lights, ER, Gilmore Girls, One Tree Hill, The O.C., 7th Heaven, Everwood, The Little House on the Prairie, Instant Star (Canadian show hehe ^^), and Without a Trace. Those shows are not running anymore so I either watch reruns or watch an episode or two online. --Sofffie7 (talk) 23:08, 5 October 2012 (UTC)
I still sometimes watch new episodes of The Simpsons, but its quality has really gone down hill. The only ones I really enjoy are the old classic one from 1990s, and early 2000s. Me and Joey talked about this at his talk page. I also watch The X Factor, Missing (no longer airing), and sometimes CBS Monday comedies, as well as some other series.

Permission requests

In the light of this edit and you editing history here, although we have spoken about these issues before, and although you do appreciable content work I do not personally feel that you are ready for any additional user rights other than the automtatic 'autoconfirmed'. If you are considering a Fresh Start, you will need to demonstrate that you have addressed these issues - just making a new account does not mean that you will be trusted not to continue making the same mistakes, and I will not recommend you being accorded any additional rights for any new accounts you may create. I hope you understand. If you have not already done so, I seriojusly recommend you enter a Mentorship Programme .Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 02:29, 6 October 2012 (UTC)

(edit conflict) I changed my mind. That's why I removed it. But, for this account then, how would you suggest I prove that I will not do the things I got blocked for again, such as edit warring? Because, I understand it now, but there is no prove or way to show it, and it will show up on my record forever, unless I prove myself. Just not sure how to prove myself, and how I now understand my wrongs. I believe I am ready/should have rollback and AWB at the very least, as I do understand vandalism very much, per my editing history related to it. Those can't be token. You can remove file mover, as I haven't proved myself though I do understand that, although I still would like to have that right if possible. Your help is much appreciated. Thanks, TBrandley 02:36, 6 October 2012 (UTC)
I don't want to see you getting blocked again, but while your content contributions are reasonably good, I do still think that you are not ready to work in any maintenance areas. This level of responsibility will only come to you when you get older and it's not something that we can help you with. Nevertheless, I strongly recommend that you continue with the same account, apply for adoption, and be absolutely sure to avoid making any mistakes with the rights you have already otherwise they can be taken away very quickly. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 02:49, 6 October 2012 (UTC)
Sure, I'll do that. I probably don't need to much help, as I have been here for a year almost now, and understand a bit of stuff. Also, when you say "older", do you mean my Wikipedia age, or real-life age, because I am quite young in real-life? Cheers, TBrandley 03:04, 6 October 2012 (UTC)
Bearing in mind that Wikipedia is a serious media with a lot of academic and scientific content, and one that is probably mainly consulted by adults, I think you are best placed to answer that yourself. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 05:59, 6 October 2012 (UTC)

Showdown (Cheers)

I wonder if Reception section has value. Ratings are less important nowadays, and I realize that Plot is the most important. With Cheers (season 1) in hand, I fear for the stability of this article. If unstable, then I must merge it into the season article. Thoughts? --George Ho (talk) 03:24, 7 October 2012 (UTC)

Izzie crying on Denny image

Tate, you know I'm on a wikibreak. The fact that you nominated a picture that I uploaded for deletion while I'm trying to take a break from WP is rude. The critical reviews mentioning the things in the picture must have been accidentally removed during copyediting. Now I have to interrupt my WikiBreak, and add them back into the article. TRLIJC19 (talkcontribs) 17:59, 7 October 2012 (UTC)

Talk:Gender Bender (The X-Files)

  • Hi there! I noticed you reverted my addition of a {{WikiProjectBannerShell}} to the talk page for Gender Bender (The X-Files). I'd just like to let you know that I'm familiar with WP:TPL, a non-guideline information page which makes "general recommendations", as well as the documentation for the template, which says that the template "is normally used when more than two and fewer than six banners are present on the talk page" [emphasis added]. I added the template just for the sake of convenience, as the bannerspace there fills the screen resolution of 1366x768, which became the most common screen resolution this April. It also makes things a little more convenient for those who visit the page in mobile view resolutions (i.e., less scrolling needed to get to the TOC).
  • While writing this, I realized that it will make less sense to use the shell there once the FAC is over, as the FAC banner will be removed and the TOC will be higher up... but still, I just hope you now understand why I added the shell. PS: Good job with your work on practically everything related to Awake! Cliff Smith 02:25, 9 October 2012 (UTC)
Thanks! Regarding the article's talk page, okay then. I like it that way, as it looks better, I just like to follow everything Wikipedia itself says. That's all. Thanks! I love Awake. Face-smile.svg TBrandley 03:05, 9 October 2012 (UTC)
You're welcome. I was impressed by the pilot, but I've yet to watch the rest. I have so many other shows I'm seasons behind on, haha. Just so I'm clear, though, are you saying you like having the shell or you don't like having the shell? Cliff Smith 03:13, 9 October 2012 (UTC)
The pilot's good. The last three are the best, due to reasons I would not like to spoil. Some are okay, but most are really good, IMO. Enjoy. Yep, I'm fine with the shell banner thing being there. TBrandley 03:16, 9 October 2012 (UTC)
Cool, I think I'll move it up on my list of things to watch. And okay, I just wanted to be sure. Keep up the good work! Cliff Smith 03:19, 9 October 2012 (UTC)

Hey, yesterday I edited "Song Beneath the Song" but my edit doesn't appear at Template:WikiProject Grey's Anatomy changes. Is it possible that the template doesn't "watches" every Grey's Anatomy pages?

Hey! It's been a while since you took up the GA Review for A Change Is Gonna Come (Grey's Anatomy), but you haven't begun writing it yet.

Yep, that's fine. Television shows use italics, and "The X-Files" is the name, not "X-Files". Looks okay now. TBrandley 16:45, 9 October 2012 (UTC)

Did you forget about that FLC? TRLIJC19 (talkcontribs) 20:25, 12 October 2012 (UTC)


Please see Talk:A Change Is Gonna Come (Grey's Anatomy)/GA1. All issues have been addressed. I want to thank you for your very thorough reviewing! Jonathan Harold Koszeghi (talk) 12:10, 12 October 2012 (UTC)

Jonathan, there are still outstanding issues. Among them are the guest listing and (my biggest concern), the non-NPOV additives used in sentences talking about CSI and Grey's Anatomy (dubbing two shows "airtime rivals" by yourself is OR). In addition, I've added a citation needed tag after the claim that the episode was named after that song; the claim needs to be referenced or removed. Tate, I would request that you don't list the article until these issues are taken care of. TRLIJC19 (talkcontribs) 20:23, 12 October 2012 (UTC)
Whether or not to pass this article is Tate's decision to make. "Airtime rival" is not OR – it is used for two shows airing in the same time-slot. Also, all the "which song does this title come from?"s in your sixth season episode articles are unreferenced but passed for GA. This is so unfair! Jonathan Harold Koszeghi (talk) 06:52, 13 October 2012 (UTC)
Actually, "Airtime rival" is more of WP:NPOV than WP:OR, because that's your opinion if you think it is an "airtime rival", some may disagree, etc. And, "which song does this title come from?", is WP:NPOV and WP:OR this time, as you believe it can from that, but you have no reference to support the statement. Regarding of other articles, these concerns actually should be addressed. I'm sorry, but I have a very big concern that could lead to me failing this, now "reception" is way too big as per WP:TVRECEPTION, you will have to find some things to cut out. I've leave my thoughts at the GAN review page. TBrandley 14:59, 13 October 2012 (UTC)
Jonathan, I don't know how many times I have to say it. Both Tate and I were a bit inexperienced with the MOS during the season six episode articles. Can you get that through your head, because I've said it numerous times. And no, actually, other users are allowed to comment at GA reviews as they see fit. Fix the issues, and stop trying to make a point. TRLIJC19 (talkcontribs) 16:49, 13 October 2012 (UTC)
I do agree that Joey's concerns should be addressed, as they important concerns. His points are actually part of good article criteria No. 2(c), "it contains no original research.", as well as WP:NPOV, those are the concerns. These need to be fixed in order for it to be passed, because it apart of the good article criteria, actually. Due to this arguing, I think you two should probably relax, and take a deep breathe, even though those issues do need to be addressed. Regards, TBrandley 18:51, 13 October 2012 (UTC)
Jonathan, Joey asked me to express my opinion and I have to say he's right. I've replied to your question concerning the overlinking, though the matter had already been explained at the beginning of the review. I've also re-added my comment about the lead; maybe you've forgotten to address it ;) --Sofffie7 (talk) 20:15, 13 October 2012 (UTC)

Roy's Wedding GA Review

I have edited Roy's Wedding to your comments so you should check it out NoD'ohnuts (talk) 06:13, 13 October 2012 (UTC)

Gossip Girl - Blair's wedding image

Hey TBrandley! I would have appreciated if you had notified me of the deletion procedure you started for the infobox image of G.G. (Gossip Girl) because, even if I did not upload the picture, I'm the top contributor of the article so I think I should know when an element of the article is questioned. I'm not used to image policies but maybe I could have saved it or at least I would have tried =/ And by the way, when you say the image "doesn't help us understand topic or subject at all", that's untrue. It illustrated the wedding, which was the theme of the episode. Thanks for the deletion... --Sofffie7 (talk) 11:37, 13 October 2012 (UTC)

Calm down. If there is better reasoning, feel free to request undeletion. But the admin wouldn't deleted it if he thought that it was important to the subject. Sorry. Twinkle only noifiyed the original uploader automatically, I thought it would just let every main contributor know. And, "doesn't help us understand topic or subject at all" is actually true, I just stated it wrong I suppose. It actually doesn't pass WP:NFCC No. 8 "Non-free content is used only if its presence would significantly increase readers' understanding of the topic, and its omission would be detrimental to that understanding." I understand that was the main theme of the episode, but the image itself with two people getting married and a wedding guy there, doesn't. Take a look at Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Say Hello to My Little Friend/archive1, my infobox image on that article was deleted (for that article, at least) per a request for the FA reviewer, "reviewers commented on the situation, but there's no detail in the frame that aids reader comprehension significantly." This happens lots. Sorry. Also, please remember to be WP:CIVIL before saying sarcastic things like "Thanks for the deletion", but I'm willing to assume good faith if you meant that. Regards, TBrandley 14:39, 13 October 2012 (UTC)
I didn't know it was possible to request undeletion. I haven't decided if I'll make a request; not sure it will succeed. Well, the guy at your FAC only asked you if it was necessary to have that image and then you removed it right away while he didn't write it had to; maybe you could have tried to keep it. Yes my last line was sarcastic. I obviously didn't mean it as a 'thank you' but I'm sorry for writing it. --Sofffie7 (talk) 15:22, 13 October 2012 (UTC)

GA reviews

Hey man. I'm going to be leaving tomorrow for a brief holiday, so if you make any headway on those GA reviews you've marked, bear in mind it'll be next Friday or Saturday before I'm able to respond to any of them. Just letting you know in case you would put one on hold and wonder where I've got to; I will get round to anything promptly when I get back. GRAPPLE X 20:40, 13 October 2012 (UTC)

The X-Files

Hey, Tate! I have sort of a weird question. I noticed that you are a The X-Files fan. I have recently bought the whole DVD collection on Amazon, and I wanted to ask you if the ongoing storyline can be followed if I watch only the Alien mythology episodes, without the "Monster-of-the-Week" ones. What do you suggest? What them all, or just the mythology-related ones? Jonathan Harold Koszeghi (talk) 14:25, 14 October 2012 (UTC)

I'd watch them all. TBrandley 14:51, 14 October 2012 (UTC)
That's not what I meant. I mean, even if I don't watch the "Monster-of-the-Week" episodes, will I still be able to perfectly understand what's going on? Jonathan Harold Koszeghi (talk) 15:49, 14 October 2012 (UTC)
By the way, all issues have been addressed at A Change Is Gonna Come (Grey's Anatomy), with the exception of one (the review). Do you think I should just delete the review, or cut out some unnecessary parts? Jonathan Harold Koszeghi (talk) 15:53, 14 October 2012 (UTC)
Almost all X-Files are "Monster-of-the-Week" episodes, but probably. TBrandley 00:52, 15 October 2012 (UTC)
Regarding the review, unless your taking it to FA, I'd cut out just some parts. It's good for GA, but not for FA. TBrandley 00:54, 15 October 2012 (UTC)
I plan on taking it to A-Class, so I'll just delete it then. ;) Thanks for your help, though! Jonathan Harold Koszeghi (talk) 11:34, 15 October 2012 (UTC)

Jonathan Harold Koszeghi (talk) 15:30, 17 October 2012 (UTC)
Nope, and I didn't see the message, actually. I must of been writing another one at the same time, or simply saw one new message and not another. I am taking another look at the article before passing. TBrandley 23:06, 17 October 2012 (UTC)

GA listing

I've told you this before, but please remember to update the project classes when listing an article as GA, otherwise the article isn't categorized as such. It still needs to be done at Talk:A Change Is Gonna Come (Grey's Anatomy). TRLIJC19 (talkcontribs) 03:23, 18 October 2012 (UTC)

666 Park Avenue

Do you watch it? It's not doing too well. It scored a 1.7 I believe in week 2, despite heavy promotion and a great ABC Sunday night lineup. It's a good show, though. TRLIJC19 (talkcontribs) 00:53, 15 October 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, I watch it (it's on Citytv where I am, not ABC, but Citytv has the same lineup that night). It's a great show, although weird and creepy, very supernatural. All the good shows don't do well, look at Awake or Brisco Country Jr. for example. TBrandley 01:29, 15 October 2012 (UTC)
On Sundays, I go to ABC for Once Upon a Time, then switch to CBS for The Good Wife—an excellent show with awesome Emmy-awarded acting, though unfortunately it's suffering in the ratings—then switch back to ABC for 666 Park Avenue. It's a shame that 666 Park Avenue isn't doing well. My general rule is to not watch a show, no matter how good, unless it can prove itself in the ratings, but I decided to make an exception for 666 Park Avenue because I really like it. I hate getting addicted to shows that get cancelled. Another exception was Grey's Anatomy; I watched the first episode live, because it looked so good. By the way, did you watch S9E2 of Grey's Anatomy yet? Also, I like your new edit summaries; very informative! I'm too lazy to write a good edit summary, lol. TRLIJC19 (talkcontribs) 01:37, 15 October 2012 (UTC)
Good choices for Sundays! On my Sundays, I go to Fox for The Simpsons, Bob's Burgers, Family Guy, American Dad!, all of which are apart of the Animation Domination (I created that article lol) lineup. Then, at 10:00 p.m., I go to ABC for 666 Park Avenue. I watched The Good Wife before, but I couldn't understand, or really like it, so I turned it off, and watched something else, seems rather strange to me. I watch any show if it is good, just because I like it lol, but I do agree that getting awesome amazing shows canceled is a real pain, especially if there is a cliffhanger ending for the season, like Awake had, a strange cliffhanger (WP:SPOILER), then you'll never know, but they write and act the episode before the show is canceled, so, they didn't know at that time. No, not yet, it's still recorded, I haven't got a big chance too just yet. The new one is Thursday, though, again. Thanks about the edit summaries, I saw very experienced editor Malleus Fatuorum doing those types of summaries, and figured that was a good way, and I looked at WP:ES again, and though a more informative summary would do better, but I am lazy though, Face-grin.svg, really. TBrandley 01:59, 15 October 2012 (UTC)
Animation Domination is a good choice for Sundays. Speaking of it, shouldn't the article title be italicized? 666 Park Avenue is on a commercial break, so here's my weekly fall line-up, lol:
  • Monday
    • 8–10: The Voice, season two show, NBC; High rated singing competition with a great concept
    • 10–11: Revolution, season one, NBC; Fairly rated freshmen drama with a decent concept
  • Tuesday
    • 8–9: The Voice, season two results, NBC; See above
    • 10–11: Private Practice, season six, ABC; Declining, but excellent, veteran drama
  • Wednesday
    • 9–9:30: Modern Family, season four, ABC; Ratings juggernaut comedy
    • 9:30–10: Suburgatory, season two, ABC; Mediocre in both ratings and context, I only watch it because nothing else is on mid-slot
    • 10–11: Nashville, season one, ABC; Fairly rated freshmen drama with great acting and content
  • Thursday
    • 8–9: The X Factor, season two, Fox; Fairly rated singing competition with notable judges
    • 9–10: Grey's Anatomy, season nine, ABC; High rated veteran drama that I do not need to explain, lol
    • 10–11: Scandal, season two, ABC; Mediocre in both ratings and context, I only watch it because it airs after Grey's Anatomy
  • Sunday
    • 7–8: 60 Minutes, season forty-five, CBS; Declining classic news show
    • 8–9: Once Upon a Time, season two, ABC; Pretty high rated fantasy drama with great context
    • 9–10: The Good Wife, season four, CBS; Declining drama with fantastic writing and acting
    • 10–11: 666 Park Avenue, season one, ABC; Low rated freshmen drama with a good concept, but bad acting
By the way, tonight's 666 Park Avenue has a good concept, but is suffering from mediocre acting. TRLIJC19 (talkcontribs) 02:53, 15 October 2012 (UTC)
What! Once Upon a Time is on where I'm at, just actually started, but I'm watching something else. Here's my line-up for the fall:

TBrandley 03:19, 15 October 2012 (UTC)

So comedy is your thing, eh? As you can tell from my line-up, I'm more of a drama person. I do watch some of the shows you listed occasionally, though, such as How I Met Your Mother (I've met Neil Patrick Harris, lol), Happy Endings, The Big Bang Theory, and Two and a Half Men. How's Elementary? I'm looking for something good to replace Scandal with. TRLIJC19 (talkcontribs) 03:37, 15 October 2012 (UTC)

I don't understand why you said that.

See the A-Class review page, "The WikiProject Grey's Anatomy coordinator, TRLIJC19—or his delegate, TBrandley—determines the timing of the process for each nomination" so, we both promote articles. It is probably because if I or Joey has a nomination, either one of us couldn't promote our own nomination. Cheers, TBrandley 15:39, 22 October 2012 (UTC)

Oops, I'm sorry, I did not see that, oops.

GA Review

Hi there! I was wondering, if you have the time, if you could review the article Sharon Newman for GA. One user in particular, Arre 9, has worked incredibly hard on it in the last 4-5 months and we're hoping to get it to GA as the first The Young and the Restless-related article to do so. Let me know. Creativity97 23:14, 26 October 2012 (UTC)

I have a backlog of good article nominations to do right now, which I have already agreed to for alot, so I may not have time right now. Once I'm done that I might though. So, for now, I'll leave it in the backlog, in case someone else picks it up sooner or beats meet to it. Hopefully someone will review very quickly, quicker than it would have already been picked up before I got a chance to get to it. I hope you understand. TBrandley 23:29, 26 October 2012 (UTC)
That's more than fine, I understand. I just considered asking you because I know you review a lot of articles for GA (for one you reviewed the page I developed, George O'Malley). I'm pretty sure that someone else will pick it up soon but if they don't, perhaps you can do it when you get some free time. Thanks! Creativity97 23:35, 26 October 2012 (UTC)

Featured list

Thank you for the review on Wikipedia:Featured list candidates/List of Intangible Cultural Heritage elements in Eastern Europe/archive1. I have addressed most of your concerns, and have questions about a few of the remaining ones. Could you take a look? Cheers,--xanchester (t) 20:38, 28 October 2012 (UTC)

Your welcome. I don't have Internet on my computer yet, just this phone, but I will reply as soon as I can. Cheers, TBrandley 00:37, 31 October 2012 (UTC)

Ed Edd n Eddy

What do you mean by this "It's American,Only filmed in Canada" ? (I don't have an account) The edit you made you made on Ed Edd n Eddy season 1 some time ago was irrelavant cause you didn't leave a summary and Canada was added to.

It means what it means. It is an American show that it only filmed in Canada, not really Canadian. I did give an edit summary. TBrandley 00:42, 31 October 2012 (UTC)
It's Canadian to.The company that produces (aka cartoon) is in Canada and what do you mean it's a cartoon so how can it be shot in Canada ?
No it isn't. It is American, and is only "animatedly" filmed in Canada, then. TBrandley 15:36, 1 November 2012 (UTC)


Hey there. You commented on my KMFDM FAC a few days ago. I've addressed most of the issues but had a few questions. Do you think you could take a look and follow-up on your initial comments? Thanks! —Torchiest talkedits 00:54, 31 October 2012 (UTC)

Sure. I hadn't had Internet over the last couple of days. Cheers, TBrandley 04:38, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

Episode summaries

Can you please voice your opinion at Talk:Once Upon a Time (season 2)#Episode summaries? Thanks, TRLIJC19 (talkcontribs) 18:21, 31 October 2012 (UTC)

Sure, done! TBrandley 04:43, 1 November 2012 (UTC)


Hey, Tate. I was wondering if you would consider listing me as a director for The X-Files' A-Class review center. As you know, I have experience with the process, and since that ACR center sees so much activity, I feel like having an additional director would be beneficial. Regards, TRLIJC19 (talkcontribs) 13:20, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

Sure, yeah, those editor's enjoy A-Class. I first created it when I saw 5 X-Files nominations somewhere, and I was like hey "A-Class review center". Anyways, sure, done. TBrandley 15:11, 1 November 2012 (UTC)
Thanks! TRLIJC19 (talkcontribs) 15:30, 1 November 2012 (UTC)
Also, do we have any policy on when a user can renominate their failed nomination at ACR? TRLIJC19 (talkcontribs) 15:34, 1 November 2012 (UTC)
It seems to be a similar process to featured article candidates, where the user should wait a few days, like 7 or something, but since this is a much slower process, an exception to that rule would be okay some times, allowing users to nominate sooner, if consensus was not reached during the nomination timeframe, but if something like, the article reached 10 opposes, for example, and the users re-nominates it with no different changes made to the article, then no. But then again, as the above, I also can't see anything noted about that on the A-Class review pages. Unrelatedly, what's up with the Grey's Anatomy, I thought it was being copy-edited? Regards, TBrandley 15:42, 1 November 2012 (UTC)
Ah, ok. So generally you can renominate quickly. As for Grey's Anatomy, the copyeditor (Risker) has not been responding to my messages for a few months now, so I'm just waiting it out. TRLIJC19 (talkcontribs) 15:48, 1 November 2012 (UTC)
Yep. And, thanks for the explanation! TBrandley 15:50, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── I had to fail 2 articles at WP:TXF/ACR; there was no reviewing or consensus over a six-week period, which constitutes failing per ACR guidelines. However, Wikipedia:WikiProject The X-Files A-Class review/Deadalive/archive1 needs another support and then it can be promoted (maybe you want to support – I'm unfamiliar with the article), and Wikipedia:WikiProject The X-Files A-Class review/Milagro (The X-Files)/archive1 is new enough to keep open, but some reviewing needs to start. TRLIJC19 (talkcontribs) 16:06, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

That's fine, thanks. TBrandley 18:12, 2 November 2012 (UTC)

St.Joseph's Convent Higher Secondary School

Hello, just a note to let you know I removed your prod from the above article as it has previously been proposed for deletion. Thank you. Rotten regard Softnow 16:12, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

Okay, thanks for letting me know. I understand "secondary schools" are okay, per WP:NOTABLE. TBrandley 18:13, 2 November 2012 (UTC)


Hi! Hope you are well! :) The differences between episode and installment are that an installment "Any of several parts of something that are published, broadcast, or made public in sequence at intervals", this makes it sound wierd, not like an episode. I gather that you want to use different words to add variety, but in these circumstances, I believe that it is not in the correct use. — M.Mario (T/C) 18:06, 2 November 2012 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) Actually, it is correct usage. Please see Give Peace a Chance (Grey's Anatomy), a FA, where it is also used. Word variety is a good thing, and "installment" is basically synonymous with "episode". TRLIJC19 (talkcontribs) 18:11, 2 November 2012 (UTC)
I still would not say it is neccesarily "correct" usage, as a British reader I find it rather confusing. However the article is written in American English, and is right to be. — M.Mario (T/C) 18:13, 2 November 2012 (UTC)
I would agree with TRLIJC19. I stand by my edit summary, but I understand that. TBrandley 18:15, 2 November 2012 (UTC)

Great new feature for ACR!

Hey, Tate. Ok, so I've implemented a new feature to all 3 of "our" ACR centers, to make closing nominations much easier. When a user starts a new nomination, a new template will appear on the top that looks like this:

{{<!--subst:-->ACR page
|approved=<!-- When closing discussion, enter yes or no. After filling in this parameter, YOU MUST unhide the "subst:" before "ACR page" above. -->

When closing a nomination, write either yes or no in the |approved= parameter. Then, this is very important: Unhide the subst: before ACR page on the first line by removing the surrounding <!-- and -->. Be sure not to remove the colon after the subst, or else the process won't work.

Once that is done, the system will format the ACR as an archive page, with all the necessary information filled in. The only thing that won't be added is the URL to the ACR log; it's not even useful anyways. I'm very excited about this new feature, and I hope you will enjoy it too! I've opened Wikipedia:WikiProject Grey's Anatomy A-Class review/As We Know It/archive1 as a test page. Please follow the instructions I gave you to close this ACR, and let me know if you have any issues.

In addition, the use of Template:ACRClosed is no longer needed, because you do not need time to format the page (it will be done immediately). So, the process is to remove the review from the nominations list, add it to the log, follow the instructions above, and then of course update the article's "ArticleHistory" and (if you approve the article) change the classes to "A" on the article talk page. Updating the "ArticleHistory" is the only tedious effort that still needs to be done manually.

Let me know if you understand all of this. Cheers, TRLIJC19 (talkcontribs) 02:38, 3 November 2012 (UTC)

Thanks, it seems good. I understand that. Cheers, TBrandley 04:02, 3 November 2012 (UTC)

You are now a Reviewer

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged revisions, underwent a two-month trial which ended on 15 August 2010. The discussion on its continued use concluded with consensus in favour of its removal, without prejudice against future reinstatement based on consensual discussion. Many articles still have pending changes protection applied, however, and the ability to review pending changes continues to be of use.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under level 1 pending changes and edits made by non-reviewers to level 2 pending changes protected articles (usually high traffic articles). Pending changes was applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:PendingChanges.

For the guideline on reviewing, see Wikipedia:Reviewing. Being granted reviewer rights doesn't grant you status nor change how you can edit articles even with pending changes. The general help page on pending changes can be found here, and the general policy for the trial can be found here.

If you do not want this user right, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Wifione Message 04:37, 3 November 2012 (UTC)

OK, thanks for the pointers! TBrandley 04:56, 3 November 2012 (UTC)

AFD close

I closed Vancouver Christian School as a redirect per the AFD, but the target suggested at AFD doesn't make sense because the school isn't a public school. Could you find a better target for it? Thanks. MBisanz talk 00:13, 4 November 2012 (UTC)

OK, I would just say redirect to Vancouver, that's the only one I know of. There is an education section you could directly point it to also, entitled "Education" exactly. If you find a better link, go ahead though. Cheers, TBrandley 00:52, 4 November 2012 (UTC)

List of Canada's Wonderland attractions

Hi, just a quick question...for the comment you made about the list not meeting WP:ACCESS, do I need to add "scope="row"" as that won't quite work for the list?--Dom497 (talk) 01:45, 3 November 2012 (UTC)

Yes, as well as scope cols. Why wouldn't it work? It is meant for screen-readers or some who have text-only web browsers. Cheers, TBrandley 04:04, 3 November 2012 (UTC)
Ok, I think I have addressed all your comments EXCEPT the copy-edit. I'm working on getting someone to do a copy-edit which shouldn't take too long. Anyway, just thought I would let you know so you can check that I fixed everything correctly.--Dom497 (talk) 20:40, 3 November 2012 (UTC)
Do you still oppose to the nomination because though you have said that the issues you mentioned have been resolved, you still have "oppose". Just wondering.--Dom497 (talk) 19:59, 4 November 2012 (UTC)
No, since I "capped" my comments. Saying "Resolved comments". Thus, since everything was addressed, I capped, and am no longer opposing, but I'm not supporting either at this time. TBrandley 20:01, 4 November 2012 (UTC)

List of Prime Ministers of Pakistan

Hi, the list is at Peer review and I need your feedback here. Regards, Zia Khan 03:05, 6 November 2012 (UTC)

A couple things

First of all, you are welcome for the kind words and thanks for signing my guestbook. Also, I have had to remove your !vote on the RfA temporarily because it is not transcluded yet and I believe RfA are supposed to be !vote-free prior to transclusion. However, I fully expect the RfA to be up and running within a day, so you will able to reinsert your !vote soon. Thanks, AutomaticStrikeout 03:50, 6 November 2012 (UTC)

Okay then. Will do, thanks. TBrandley 03:54, 6 November 2012 (UTC)
No problem. AutomaticStrikeout 03:56, 6 November 2012 (UTC)
It is live now. AutomaticStrikeout 23:50, 6 November 2012 (UTC)
Thanks, done. TBrandley 23:52, 6 November 2012 (UTC)
Yup. Regarding the oppose !vote, I would leave it alone and try to avoid a prolonged dispute, as that's not what the RfA needs. AutomaticStrikeout 00:09, 7 November 2012 (UTC)
