Happy New Year !!![edit]

Hi Tenebrae,

I would like to wish you a Happy New Year 2017 !!! I will put a link here and I don't know if you will be able to access it, it is a link to the BAnQ (Bibliothèque des Archives nationales du Québec) and maybe you'll be able to see the baptism certificate of Norma Shearer from Westmount in Montreal - here it is -> http://bibnum2.banq.qc.ca/bna/ecivil/affichage.html?serie=06M_CE601S147&a=r If you see something on this link, click on "1903" at the middle left then click on "Janvier - Décembre" who will appear. Then you will see the pages. Go to page 9A then click on "Page 9A" then click on "Affichage plein écran" and the page will download. Then if you have an arrow who points down in the upper-right of your computer (it's the downloading) click on this arrow then click on the thing who appears and you will see the baptism certificate of Edith Norma Shearer. I don't know if you'll be able to see it (since you're not a BAnQ member) but if you are able anyone will be able to see it. Give me news. And Happy New Year again Tenebrae !!! --Danielvis08 (talk) 04:00, 1 January 2017 (UTC)

P.S. For Douglas Shearer click on "1900" then "janvier - décembre" then on "Page 6". For Athole Shearer click on "1901" then "janvier - décembre" then on "Page 3A". --Danielvis08 (talk) 04:21, 1 January 2017 (UTC)

At long last...Jack Schiff has a Wikipedia article![edit]

Hi Tenebrae,

Back on July 16, 2013, you wrote to me that "One of these days we'll get around to Jack Schiff!" After 3½ years, I finally created it! He was a pretty interesting person. How many other comics creators worked with Pearl S. Buck?

I've created six new articles in the space of 12 days which is a new personal best. All Out War (comics), Jesse Santos, Bill Draut, D. Bruce Berry, and Howard Bender are the other new ones. Hope you enjoy them.

Best regards,

Minor critics society awards[edit]

Hey, I know awhile back you were looking to remove some of these minor critics society awards and I found some that may have escaped your sight while updating List of accolades received by Deadpool (film). Denver Film Critics Society hasn't been updated since 2014 and doesn't any sources. Jupiter Award (film award) claims to be "Germany's biggest audience award" but doesn't cite any sources.--TriiipleThreat (talk) 14:31, 13 January 2017 (UTC)

Clarify[edit]

@MarnetteD: In case it seemed odd that I thanked you for your comment, despite the frustration you expressed, I wanted you to know I do appreciate your civility, as well as your collegially remarking that we both have the best interests of WP at heart. The thank you was sincere, --Tenebrae (talk) 19:05, 13 January 2017 (UTC)

CalzGuy undid my edit at Sing Street. He told me that "Wikipedia:Manual_of_Style/Film#Accolades doesn't say that". Explain to him and I won't edit that article...

Then, user URunICon watched my contribution and edited similar with my contribution, by adding "the center ref(s)". I fixed them as URunICon did for La La Land's accolades, but URunICon reverted them. What's wrong with me? URunICon makes plan by kicking me at Wikipedia. Am I wrong again for following Wikipedia's rule? You can see Sing Street again.

Superman[edit]

Well, Tenebrae, my original account has been restored at the forebearance of the admins, and I'm going ahead and finishing up some loose ends on the Superman article. I distracted myself these past few months researching other domains, but this is one itch that I needed to scratch. I regret that our past interactions were foul, but what to do? If you object to what I have just done, you can confront me on Talk and I will bear you no ill will for this. If I encounter resistance again, I will fold. Things didn't go so well for everyone last time, and my work on this article is almost done anyway, so I think I could bear to walk away. Kurzon (talk) 18:59, 20 January 2017 (UTC)

Monsters Unleashed-response[edit]

In my defense to Monsters Unleashed, the storyline was made separate in order to keep it from being confused with the unrelated comic series just like how they had to keep Secret Wars and it's 2015 comic book separate. This issue is a big event for the Marvel Comics monsters community. Did I leave anything out? --Rtkat3 (talk) 22:29, 24 January 2017 (UTC)

Captain America[edit]

Hey would you mind chiming in on the Captain America discussion right now? I feel like this is something which will need opinions from a lot of people to be done right. I'm going to bring it up in the Comicproject talkpage as well.★Trekker (talk) 22:24, 26 January 2017 (UTC)

Re: A Monster Calls[edit]

I forgot to write it was also british-american. I wrote it because as the films The Impossible (2012 film) and Regression (film), they are "spanish films" because the director and companies, but they are in english. I agree with you and yes, "A Monster Calls" is both, spanish-british-american. Thanks and now, the description is correct :)

JaviDex (talk) 18:00, 27 January 2017 (UTC)

Perfect. But, I think no cites are neccesary. I mean, the director is spanish, the scriptwriter is british-american and the characters and the companies are spanish-british-americans, so the countries are known thanks of that. In spite of this, all the cites I can find (spanish newspapers as: http://cultura.elpais.com/cultura/2016/10/06/actualidad/1475712379_440756.html) says the film is spanish (Género: drama. España, 2016 - Type: drama. Spain, 2016). I think we can leave that as it is in the article (the film is spanish-british-american) :)

Top Ten Lists[edit]

Hi. Hope you're well. I've noticed that you've removed appearances in Top Ten lists from accolades lists. I support this for the minor critic associations, but support inclusions of if they appeared in the top Ten of National Board of Review or American Film Institute which have independent recognition and are covered every year in accolades list. Is there consensus for this, if so I can begin culling these from the accolades lists? Cowlibob (talk) 19:41, 9 February 2017 (UTC)

Hi, @Cowlibob: Unless something's changed in the last couple of days, the only top-ten list WP:FILM is including is the AFI's. If I had to guess, the National Board of Review isn't included since then we'd have to start including national boards and their equivalents from a whole bunch of other countries, bloating the lists all over again. --Tenebrae (talk) 22:21, 9 February 2017 (UTC)

You have been blocked from editing for a period of 12 hours for edit warring, as you did at Demi Moore. Once the block has expired, you are welcome to make useful contributions. If you think there are good reasons why you should be unblocked, you may request an unblock by first reading the guide to appealing blocks, then adding the following text to the bottom of your talk page: {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}}.

During a dispute, you should first try to discuss controversial changes and seek consensus. If that proves unsuccessful, you are encouraged to seek dispute resolution, and in some cases it may be appropriate to request page protection.  Coffee // have a cup // beans // 03:32, 10 February 2017 (UTC)

{unblock|reason=I confess I'm a little confused. 3RR requires four reverts and I made only three. Also, and perhaps I'm wrong, but WP:BLP vios, I believe, are excepted in any case. The other editor made poorly sourced claims and removed RS-cited verbatim quotes by the subject herself.Tenebrae (talk) 20:15, 10 February 2017 (UTC)

Actually, it appears that 12 hours have passed and I'm unblocked. I'm still curious as to the specifics of the violation, if I might ask for clarification. With thanks, --Tenebrae (talk) 20:20, 10 February 2017 (UTC)}}
I've disabled the unblock request. Perhaps you've had no reason to run into the distinction. Edit warring, as a general rule, is strongly discouraged. It's sometimes a bit subjective to determine if someone is edit warring; where is the threshold? One absolute threshold is the three revert thing -- if you break 3RR, you're going to get blocked, and there's not much arguing to be done about it. But you can edit war without violating 3RR; I've seen people blocked for edit warring by making one edit a month. --jpgordon𝄢𝄆 𝄐𝄇 20:36, 10 February 2017 (UTC)
@Jpgordon: Thanks for responding. I appreciate the broader perspective. I'm surprised the WP:BLP nature of the edits didn't appear to come into consideration.--Tenebrae (talk) 20:40, 10 February 2017 (UTC)
Possibly they might not have been noticed. You might want to ask the blocking admin about that. --jpgordon𝄢𝄆 𝄐𝄇 01:16, 11 February 2017 (UTC)

Wikizilla Links[edit]

I have a few questions about this whole thing. I have to go to this External Links noticeboard to make my request, and then I have to take that discussion and link it at the Project Film place and the Project Tokusatsu place? That's how I'm understanding it but I'm not entirely sure if I'm correct. Could you please elaborate on this. Also I could do without the accusations that I'm setting up an edit-war please. I don't want things to get out of hand just because I'm not completely familiar with Wikipedia's rules. EncyclopediaGojira (talk) 04:44, 25 February 2017 (UTC)

@EncyclopediaGojira: Quite alright. Though you've been on Wikipedia since October, I guess it's still understandable you might not have been familiar with the protocol at WP:BRD or with WP:EDITWAR. There's a learning curve for all of us. I will note that User:Friginator already spoke with you about all this on your talk page at https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User_talk:EncyclopediaGojira&diff=762660987&oldid=746280707.
An RfC is pretty simple, though it does take a few steps, the most important of which is crafting a neutral question. Go to Wikipedia:Requests for comment and follow the directions. They which will include adding "{{rfc|media}} where it asks for "category."
Afterward, in order to generate comments from editors particularly knowledgable in the subject matter, which always helps, you almost certainly want to add something like "A request for comment concerning a specific external link to Godzilla-related articles is taking place at [wikilink here]." These would go at the bottom Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Film and Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Tokusatsu at the very least. I hope this helps, and I'm here of you need any specific help in setting up the RfC. --Tenebrae (talk) 20:49, 26 February 2017 (UTC)

Impending_IP (talk) 19:58, 3 March 2017 (UTC)

@86.43.187.228: Thank you for asking. Infobox images are supposed to show the most longstanding and traditional version of a character.

@Tenebrae[edit]

Please think for a second. What exactly do "all other editors" disagree with regarding my edits? I have not been told. Can you let me know? I don't see any problem whatsoever with mentioning the current status of Doctor Doom. What is the problem with mentioning that e is now Infamous Iron Man?

Notification[edit]

For a Master Editor IV you're acting pretty hasty. Calm down, willya? Master Editors are supposed to be good role models and not go off half-cocked. Partly for my own protection (from you) I opened a thread at WP:ANI concerning this situation, which you have way escalated and which I think you're in the wrong on procedural grounds, and maybe we can hash it out there or whatever. Herostratus (talk) 21:04, 10 March 2017 (UTC)

Let's see if we can dial this down a notch[edit]

I noticed that 1) you're a Master Editor IV with a bunch of barnstars and 2) you were recently blocked (for edit-warring) even though your log is otherwise clean; these are two things that don't fit together, so I wonder if something is going on. I addition it'd only be human to be upset about that block (I would be). Not my business, so that's all I can really say about that.

Under the circumstances I've decided to cut you some slack and not make a huge deal over what's going on over at at the article. WP:BRD is an important principle and worth fighting for, but this particular hill is not worth dying over. I'll meet you over at the talk page there presently.

Awesome, let me see if I can think of something. Also pinging @Favre1fan93 and Adamstom.97: in case they have any suggestions.--TriiipleThreat (talk) 16:49, 19 April 2017 (UTC)
Thanks! --Tenebrae (talk) 17:27, 19 April 2017 (UTC)
It'd be great too if you could keep an eye on the article, if you aren't already, just to handle any vandalism and such (the article is not currently protected either). I'm probably going to remove it from my watchlist very soon and will be back on May 5 after seeing the film myself. And I'll come back later and post any questions I might have! Here's one. Having not seen the film yet, I don't know if this is silly or not given the content, but, what was the decision to have as many post-credit scenes as there are, and why weren't the scenes incorporated elsewhere in the film? - Favre1fan93 (talk) 18:32, 19 April 2017 (UTC)
Another: If allowed (as I know this can happen at junkets sometimes), see if Gunn is able to talk about/confirm any of the Guardians-related characters in Infinity War outside of the main team, specifically the Collector (as we have some suspect sourcing on his appearance). Probably can't or won't mention anyone specifically but worth a shot. - Favre1fan93 (talk) 18:39, 19 April 2017 (UTC)
Smart questions from a smart editor! Will ask. Without giving anything away that anyone wouldn't expect, one of the end-credit scenes does set up a another Marvel character. --Tenebrae (talk) 19:04, 19 April 2017 (UTC)
I think I would need to see the film first to come up with any decent questions, but having him explain his reasoning/development process for anything is always great for us. - adamstom97 (talk) 22:51, 19 April 2017 (UTC)
If not to late for another one: Any way for him to confirm Bradley Cooper for Infinity War would be great. We have the character appearing and his brother doing on set motion reference/acting again, but not that Cooper will be back. - Favre1fan93 (talk) 17:24, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
I'll give it a shot! --Tenebrae (talk) 17:25, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
Much obliged! Those are the best I can think of without having seen the film like Adam said. Obviously since you've seen it, if there were moments you think a lot of people will want to know about (VFX things, how something was filmed/prepped, etc.) those are always good to have info on! - Favre1fan93 (talk) 17:28, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
Hmmm perhaps something about what if any influence the 80s/90s (and any particular film(s) from that era) had on him considering his use retro color schemes and casting stars from that era (Stallone, Russell, Close, Zombie).--TriiipleThreat (talk) 19:16, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

@TriiipleThreat and Adamstom.97: FYI to you all, I've taken the GotG Vol. 2 article, MCU films and MCU film cast articles off my watch list, since stuff may be added from junkets and the premiere red carpet interviews.

@John from Idegon: Thanks for the kind words, and, yeah, what you say is exactly what it looked like. I will continue keeping an eye on it. --Tenebrae (talk) 20:58, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

Understanding Consensus[edit]

Even as to relying on the show itself is a primary source, which we could rely upon. Of course we have to be very careful in such a case not to do WP:OR. For instance, if there are a mixture of positive and negative things said, how do we know if they are in top or bottom? In such a case, ONLY secondary sources could be allowed to resolve the question.

I've reverted your disruptive edits. This is what the closer said. Only in cases that the comments from the judges are ambiguous is it necessary to rely on a secondary source (even so, it's rare for it to be that ambiguous). I suggest that you familiarize yourself with the show and read what the consensus actually is before you go reverting edits. Do not make further revisions to the articles unless you are willing to point out any ambiguous comments from the judges and any sources to go with those, since the onus is on you to show a secondary source is required. nihlus kryik (talk) 23:37, 27 April 2017 (UTC)

Apparently you do not understand what consensus is or what a status-quo is. I recommend you worry less about your edit count and more about what your edits are. nihlus kryik (talk) 17:55, 28 April 2017 (UTC)

Steve Englehart and Todd McFarlane[edit]

"Collaborate with" omits the fact that Englehart gave McFarlane his first professional work, which is the whole point of mentioning it in Englehart's article. I'm not sure why you would remove this specificity for the more vague "collaborate", when that wasn't even the main reason why you explained you disagreed with it.

You also removed the "young artist, fresh out of college" description, which further paints the picture of the importance of that moment in history.

You also removed "immense popularity" which is not informal, and unquestionably a documented fact.

Lastly, "great multimedia success" refers to his success in various media: Independent creator-owned publishing, toy making, and a Grammy and Emmy-winning animator, info that is referred to in the cited sources. You replaced this with "toy-company founder", which does not convey this, as it removes the other media in which McFarlane found success, and restricts it to toys. Why do this? Have you read McFarlane's article?

I'm sorry, Tenebrae, but this is not an improvement. I removed the informal term "superstar" that you thought was inappropriate, so I don't know why you're determined to remove the specific info that makes Englehart's giving McFarlane his first word so noteworthy. Nightscream (talk) 21:29, 30 April 2017 (UTC)

"young artist, fresh out of college" is non-encyclopedic tone. I believe "the recent college graduate" is more encyclopedic.
Didn't know about the animation stuff. So how about "McFarlane would go on to become one of the industry's most prominent and successful artists and publishers, a toy-company founder, and a Grammy Award- and Emmy Award-winning animator." --Tenebrae (talk) 21:33, 30 April 2017 (UTC)
Question: As a writer, who generally doesn't do the hiring in comics, how did Englehart give him work? Wouldn't it be the publisher giving McFarlane work? --Tenebrae (talk) 21:35, 30 April 2017 (UTC)

You might be being discussed on ANI. I have no idea.[edit]

Sorry! I didn't notice, but actually you are (maybe) being discussed on ANI and no one informed you.

A user whom you recently asked to stop talking about "certain users" on an article talk page opened a report on ANI about said unnamed users, and didn't post on anyone's talk page around the same time. Someone else commented and replaced "certain users" with "the offending editor", and specifically linked a comment that was clearly addressed to them. I notified that one user, but it's entirely possible that you were one of the "certain users" in question.

Or if not, you could at least help elaborate on whom you think the certain editors are. I'm just a random uninvolved editor and am already getting pretty damn sick of it; perhaps if all involved users had been notified the discussion would be less ... "lonely", I guess? I have no idea who else was involved. I only noticed your comment because it came right after a diff I needed, and I thought shortly before another I wanted.

"interpretive POV" vs. OR[edit]

Hey, thanks for putting up with me on the Guardians talk page. It's a peripheral point so I'm bringing it here, but I think what I did here was more "OR" than "POV", since my POV (that Ego is the film's villain, has sinister motives, and is lying in at least some of what he says) is one the film essentially forces on the audience. These aren't real people about whom one can have conflicting opinions.

It is OR to say that since Yondu was involved in the fates of Ego's other children then Ego must have been planting seeds all across the galaxy at roughly the same time as he was having this star-crossed romance with Meredith. But "talk-page OR" in discussion of the inclusion or non-inclusion of something in the article that may or may not be independently sourced is generally allowed, as long is it doesn't enter the realm of excessive fanboy navel-gazing.

This is why I think plot summaries should have to be sourced to secondary sources rather than the films themselves, as it is possible to read the film the way you did (as you appeared to be doing?). Presenting original plot summaries with unique emphases is (depending on how straightforward the film is, of course) contrary to the spirit, if not the letter, of NOR. And the more we work, even in good faith to fix it on the talk page based on our own readings of the film itself rather than based on third-party reliable sources, the closer we get to the above-mentioned excessive fanboy navel-gazing.

Hijiri 88 (やや) 22:34, 21 May 2017 (UTC)

@Hijiri88: Well, I can't argue with most of that! I do think that with movie plots, it all shakes out properly eventually. But, yeah, with comic-book movies there's a tendency, by newer editors especially, to overdetail. That said, most of the veteran WikiProject Comics editors have done a terrific job overall on the Marvel movies, I think.--Tenebrae (talk) 00:02, 22 May 2017 (UTC)
Look a little bit closer at some of those articles, sometime... virtually every MCU article I have read, I have found something wrong with: blue haze covering the lead because someone thought it was a good idea to list the entire poster-billed cast even if several of them were on screen for less than a minute; sources being attached to overly-detailed character descriptions when really they only verify the fact that Actor X is playing Character Y; material copy-pasted from one article into another related article without regard for how it would look in the different context, pre-release speculative and/or promotional sources being cited years after the films' release for our (updated) claims that they don't support.
I mean, with Iron Man 3 Marvel were deliberately trolling their fans and throwing them off the scent by telling them that Ben Kingsley would be playing the Mandarin, the leader of the Ten Rings seen in the first film; the final film included no mention of the Ten Rings, but we still claim the fictional character within a fictional movie is "depicted as the leader of the international terrorist organization the Ten Rings", a claim cited entirely to pre-release sources that just said Ben Kingsley was playing the Mandarin. Similar examples are endemic. (The problem gets worse in "In other media" sections of our articles on the comic book characters themselves.[5][6])
I feel like GA reviewers (and a bunch of these articles are GAs despite the above problems) are somewhat clumsy with checking these things, since GA has a list of criteria and they check the articles only against those criteria, without regard for how the article actually reads, and sometimes skip over the most important criterion (verifiable with no original research) because they don't have access to the sources or just didn't bother checking them because they are "assuming good faith" (which isn't what that policy means). Again, the Iron Man 3 example I gave is technically "verifiable" and "not original research", in that other sources not cited in the article, or already cited elsewhere in the article, may verify the claims being made, but if GA reviewers were more careful it wouldn't have passed while still containing material clearly not supported by the sources attached to it.
Sorry for such a long rant. Just my two cents on the MCU articles (haven't looked at the Fox or Sony ones, honestly) and GA processes in general.

Stallone's character's crew and Stallone's character's team-mates[edit]

Hey, I just got out of my second viewing and checked this. The characters in the mid-credits stinger are apparently not the same people as the crew of Stakar's ship. In the funeral scene, Stakar addresses his crew while paying his respects, and they call him "Captain", and then in quick succession we see the other characters in the stinger scene each pay their respects as well. The implication is that they are different captains on different ships, each with their own crew, but it makes sense that one might get this mixed up (honestly, both times I was tearing up during that scene and probably wouldn't have noticed details like thos if I wasn't specifically looking). in the stinger itself Stakar specifically regrets that it took Yondu's death to reunite the "team". And most importantly of all (it's detached from the other scenes and so is even easier to miss), Yondu says to Rocket when they are sharing a cell that he, Stakar and the other Ravager captains were once a team not unlike Rocket, Quill and co. -- he does everything short of explicitly stating that they had been the original Guardians of the Galaxy.

Posting this on your talk page since it's kind of off-topic for the article talk page, as my current view is that the stingers should not be discussed in the plot summary at all (read: I think that the text in question should be removed). The information that's important for our article -- that the characters played by stallone, Yeoh et al. are references to an earlier incarnation of the team from the comics -- can all be easily verified in third-party reliable sources without resorting to SYNTH, so discussion of whether the film versions of the characters are Stakar's "crew" or his "team-mates" is kind of irrelevant. I just figured I'd point it out because it came up in the discussion.

Hijiri 88 (やや) 14:18, 26 May 2017 (UTC)

@Hijiri88: Good analysis. I wish the credits Disney gave press had included all the roles and characters that appeared in the onscreen credits; that would have helped.

hello,[edit]

I can see from your history that you've pretty much been going through all of my edits and re-correcting them. i recognize your right as a contributor to double check information but i am a bit uncomfortable that you've made it a priority to sift through each of my edits and the pages i've edited. i'm a minor and it makes me uneasy to be stalked in any way. i am sure you have better things to do with your time then fact check everything i do when i have tried to make as little of a scene as possible, but i do confess that i now feel a bit troubled for being stalked. most of those edits were either going off of what somebody else did or reorganizing information. for some reason, there seems to be a hierarchy between editors on this site; i have never intended to make editing this domain a hobby or a passion or anything like that ever. however, it ticks me off when people who do fail to display signs of respect or acknowledgment of junior contributors that are utilizing the right wikipedia offers them as a website that can be edited by anyone (within reason & accuracy). but the content on a page shouldn't be solely decided by a singular, one editor that makes it their duty to track and control every single edit and perhaps label it whatever they please to keep it off the page. it's also not right for editors to gang up on junior editors when they feel like it. the adding of upcoming projects has never been against any policy of normalcy and it doesn't make sense to act like it is. anyways, please stop going through my contribution list and leave me alone. --— Preceding unsigned comment added by Rosemaries19 (talkcontribs) 23:26, 31 May 2017‎

@Rosemaries19: There is no way of knowing who anyone is on Wikipedia, and your threatening insinuation that you purportedly are a minor and that I am "stalking" a minor appears to be on the verge of a legal threat, a policy under which you can be sanctioned. My edits were strictly to correct gross violations of WP:BLP, WP:TABLOID, WP:GOSSIP and other inappropriate edits that were not "within reason and accuracy". As for your WP:PROMOTIONAL edits, more than one editor reverted them.
Wikipedia welcomes all contributors and asks that they adhere to the policies and guidelines encapsulated at the 5 Pillars of Wikipedia. --Tenebrae (talk) 17:54, 1 June 2017 (UTC)
i am a minor, i have stated this before on Ginny's edit history, if an administrator asks me the fact that i am a minor is true by all means and under the laws of the United States of America of anyone under 18 to be a legal minor. I was simply saying that by constantly going through my edits you are making me uncomfortable and it is fully in my rights to let you know of it. It feels like you are purposely targeting me for some reason and/or trying to incite drama. it is fully within my right to call out an adult for tracking my every move on the site and making me feel uneasy. If this continues I don't intend to take legal action (bit of a large jump there Jesus) but I will go to the administrators and request you blocked from my account so you don't see my contributions and no longer have any reason to sift restlessly and intentionally through almost every edit I've made. I never specified any edits I did in my comment, I never asked for any sort of reverting or restoration, I simply asked for you to leave me alone. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Rosemaries19 (talkcontribs) 18:17, 1 June 2017 (UTC)
@Rosemaries19: Anyone can claim anything they want; that doesn't make it true. Wikipedia editors have a responsibility to undo irresponsible edits and editors, particularly on biographical articles where you're adding anonymously sourced gossip and tabloid claims. The only person making drama here is you: If you'll check you'll see it has been since May 30 that I edited an article that you have edited. Feel free to ask admins for anything you'd like; I'd be glad to give them a list of your irresponsible edits and your uncivil, borderline threatening talk-page posts. Anyone can edit Wikipedia, but they need to do it responsibly. I'm quite sure from your tone and claims that you've never read the 5 Pillars of Wikipedia, as I suggested above. --Tenebrae (talk) 18:30, 1 June 2017 (UTC)

Date of birth for Jenette Kahn[edit]

Hello Tenebrae,

How are you? I just saw that Jenette Kahn was born on 1948 without a source. I found his birth date. Here in an article from The New York Times dated January 6, 1985 they mention she is 37 years old -> [7]. If we calculate we find she was born between January 7, 1947 and January 6, 1948, hence a great odd that she was born in 1947. At the end of the NYTimes article they mention she was once married with Morton J. Fink. Here on FamilySearch we have a marriage for Jenette S Kahn with Morton J Fink in Connecticut -> [8], and here we have her with an address in NY and Connecticut and that she was born May 16, 1947 -> [9].

After looking at your page, I came to realise that. Honestly thanks for coming to a consensus without having to resort to a heated debate. I have a question, should we rename Magazine Management as Marvel Comics Group? After all, the citation does state that Magazine Management was renamed, and it's technically a different legal entity from Marvel Comics? Iftekharahmed96 (talk) 16:59, 4 July 2017 (UTC)
@Iftekharahmed96: There's been a lot of back-and-forth and much, much work on Magazine Management, Cadence and other Marvel-related company articles over the years. Magazine Management was around before Marvel, and Marvel was actually only a very small part of the company, so I think project editors would be pretty much of accord that Magazine Management should stay. --Tenebrae (talk) 17:09, 4 July 2017 (UTC)

I see, that's understandable. So Marvel Comics (formerly Atlas Comics) was a subsidiary to Marvel Comics Group (formerly Magazine Management) who's parent company was Marvel Entertainment, correct? If that's the case, what happened to Marvel Comics (formerly Atlas Comics) over time? Did it get absorbed into Marvel Comics Group or was it dissolved as a legal entity?

I'm pretty sure it's all cited at the Marvel Comics article. In a nutshell, Atlas Comics wasn't a company but a brand — those 1950s comics were put out by multiple shell companies from Azmiuth to Zenith, all owned by Martin Goodman, who also owned Magazine Management. Beginning in 1961, Goodman began using Marvel Comics as a brand, and gradually brought the comics under Magazine Management, rather than any of the various shell companies. At some point, I believe after the sale to Perfect/Cadence, the Marvel Comics Group division was formed, and from there evolved into the various entities since. I might have a detail or two wrong since I'm doing this off the top of my head, but it's all cited in the various articles.--Tenebrae (talk) 17:59, 4 July 2017 (UTC)
Interesting. So was Magazine Management a shell corporation too, or was that registered as a legal entity? because I'm informed about Perfect/Cadence acquiring Magazine Management. Iftekharahmed96 (talk) 20:12, 4 July 2017 (UTC)
Magazine Management was an incorporated business entity. Atlas and early Marvel Comics were published through something like 28 shell companies, from Azimuth to Zenith. --Tenebrae (talk) 20:14, 4 July 2017 (UTC)
I thought so, just wanted to make sure on that. Marvel's incorporated history is so complicated with all these shell corporations that Martin Goodman created. Why did he have so many shell corporations for Marvel intellectual properties? Iftekharahmed96 (talk) 20:18, 4 July 2017 (UTC)
If I remember the various books on Marvel history correctly, having different shell corporations limited your legal liability. If some municipality decided to sue you for having an "obscene" crime comic, for instance, your exposure was limited to the particular shell corporation that published that comic. --Tenebrae (talk) 20:21, 4 July 2017 (UTC)
Wow, that's an interesting thought to consider. Should that piece of information be placed in the Marvel Comics article (or his article)? the fact that Martin Goodman created these shell corporations to host Marvel intellectual properties in order to limit his legal liabilities? Iftekharahmed96 (talk) 21:21, 4 July 2017 (UTC)
As long as it's properly footnoted. I'm sure you can find a supporting cite for that in one Marvel Comics history or other. Here's some raw info to start, from Atlas Comics (1950s): "The Atlas logo united a line put out by the same publisher, staff and freelancers through 59 shell companies, from Animirth Comics to Zenith Publications.[cite: "Marvel Indicia Publishers". Grand Comics Database. ]" --Tenebrae (talk) 21:26, 4 July 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for the basic. So what do you think of this sentence, "The Atlas logo united a line put out by the same publisher, staff and freelancers through 59 shell companies, from Animirth Comics to Zenith Publications. [cite: "Marvel Indicia Publishers". Grand Comics Database. ]. Martin Goodman created these shell corporations in order to host Marvel intellectual properties with limited legal liabilities." Iftekharahmed96 (talk) 10:39, 5 July 2017 (UTC)

@Iftekharahmed96: I would take out the word Marvel, since Goodman did that with all his companies from the very start. The only other thing is that I would definitely find an authoritative book or article with which to cite that claim — shouldn't be hard to find — since without such a cite, we're only making a (very good, educated) guess at his reasoning. --Tenebrae (talk) 17:21, 7 July 2017 (UTC)
Honestly, I think you should do the honours of adding the line to the Martin Goodman article and the Marvel Comics article. After all, you're the one to have explained it all to me, and you're the one perfecting the sentence. And there's no question that you'd find far more appropriate citation than I would. What is your thought on that proposition? Iftekharahmed96 (talk) 17:31, 7 July 2017 (UTC)
Happy to. Might not get to it immediately, since I'd have to hunt through my library, but I promise I will. And, obviously, feel free to do it first! --Tenebrae (talk) 17:32, 7 July 2017 (UTC)

I actually didn't notice 90% of this until just now. I can't believe no one even told her off for it; most editors who had been here as long as she had would be blocked on site if they pulled something like that.

Hijiri 88 (やや) 10:33, 9 July 2017 (UTC)

For what it's worth, I wasn't talking about the "verbal attack in an edit-summary", which I haven't read. I was talking about the content of the edit, which consist of adding the word "Drama" beneath all of my comments, and in one case in the middle of one of said comments.

Does it bother you...[edit]

...that she's now started blatantly violating TPO by renaming our sections after us and making our original headings into subheadings?[12]

Personally, I find it more amusing than offensive (assuming causing offense was her intent), but it is still really weird that she hasn't been blocked yet when she thinks it being "her talk page" means she is allowed alter or recontextualize other people's comments.

Even more sock puppetry[edit]

Hello, Tenebrae. Do you remember this vandal that disrupts WP:FILM articles? Well, they have gotten even more difficult to deal with. I just discovered two accounts, No20123 and No1092, that appear to be the exact same user (they make remarkably similar edits and edit similar articles).

Duplicate Report in AN3[edit]

Hi there. I noticed you created a report very shortly after I did on AN3. I deleted it so we don't accidentally end up with two discussion threads. However, I couldn't come up with a good way to preserve your comment and keep it attributed to you. Could you re-add it to the report I filed with your signature?

There already is an ANI, started by an editor other than myself, regarding Hillbillyholiday's edit-warring and disruptive editing across numerous articles: Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents#Mass deletions and edit warring across celebrity articles by Hillbillyholiday. In the case of this article, he is correct in that 3RR has an exception for BLP issues. However — and especially in his last couple reverts — he is edit-warring to remove completely RS-cited passages, with cites from two books and the History Channel. I'm sure he has his reasons — but since it doesn't involve BLP sourcing, those reasons don't matter since he is WP:OWN-ing and showing a pattern of combative behavior.--Tenebrae (talk) 22:09, 23 August 2017 (UTC)

styleguide question: birthdays[edit]

hi Tenebrae, i saw the changes you made to Tim Miller (director) and wanted to check in with you about the birthday citation. i was under the impression that birthdays were common knowledge and didn't need to be cited. most pages i've encountered don't have birthdays cited. see Ryan Reynolds and David Fincher for example. i understand wikipedia's policy is to not cite IMDb, but since you deleted the birthday information and demanded a citation to keep it up, i decided to try for that. i can't find any clear answer as to why most pages don't have citations for their birthdays. if you can't provide me with an answer, i'm uncertain why it is that the birthday can't stay in the article to match the style of other people like Tim Miller--other directors and entertainment workers.

Query[edit]

Hi Tenebrae. What did you mean by The proposer should not be bringing a motion to close.? --John (talk) 18:08, 27 August 2017 (UTC)

In response to your question on my talk page, I believe I gave my reasons at the ANI. And I'm not sure why you're continuing to harass me on my talk page. My very first comment to you at the ANI was said with maturity, diplomacy and respectfulness — go back and read it again. Nevertheless, you've made our interaction remarkably personal, demanding an apology on behalf of another editor, which the other editor himself isn't even asking me for — suggesting to me you two know each other in real life. You've threatened me and others who disagree with you — and many do disagree with you. I'm not sure what you want from me personally or why you're hounding me, but I find it harassing and unbecoming. --Tenebrae (talk) 18:13, 27 August 2017 (UTC)
I see. Well, I'm sorry you feel that way. It'd make things a lot easier if you could just answer the question, but if you can't, I certainly can't force you. --John (talk) 18:34, 27 August 2017 (UTC)
Please stop continuing to say falsehoods about me. I did answer the question. Read sentence two at https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia:Administrators%27_noticeboard/Incidents&diff=prev&oldid=797530677. And removing my original reply? I'm not sure why anyone being transparent and aboveboard would do that.--Tenebrae (talk) 18:37, 27 August 2017 (UTC)
Well, that says It is inherently a conflict of interest, since his closing proposal favors his own position and biases. So I suppose what I'm asking is: how does my proposal "favor my own position"? What is my position, in your opinion? --John (talk) 18:40, 27 August 2017 (UTC)

@John: If you'd like to discuss this at the ANI, in the open, I'm happy do that. As I previously mentioned, your continually coming to my talk page to hound me and threaten me in a remarkably personal way is harassment. I'm not sure what I have to do stop you from doing so, but I will ask once more and hope that you display a sense of honor: Please stop coming to my talk page about an issue that does not involve me. This ANI is about user:Hillbillyholiday. You are harassing me, and you need to stop. --Tenebrae (talk) 18:44, 27 August 2017 (UTC)

"Harrassment" is a criminal offence in the UK and USA. Please be careful when accusing editors of potentially illegal acts, as such unwarranted accusations can in themselves be considered an offence. See also: this. --Hillbillyholiday (talk) 19:35, 27 August 2017 (UTC)
@Hillbillyholiday: "Harassment" is an accepted term at the Wikipedia policy Wikipedia:Harassment. You and User:John are now tag-teaming to harass me. Do it again, and I'm opening an ANI about the two of you, and maybe we'll find out what the deal is with you two.--Tenebrae (talk) 19:39, 27 August 2017 (UTC)
I'm not sure how offering some friendly advice counts as harrassment in any way. You threw yourself into that ANI report with gusto and your poor behaviour came under some scrutiny -- you are definitely "involved". --Hillbillyholiday (talk) 19:47, 27 August 2017 (UTC)
@Hillbillyholiday: The proper place to talk about your behavior, which is what the ANI is all about, is at the ANI page — not here. And your attempts at deflection aren't appropriate or even working. Please limit your comments about the ANI to the ANI page. Your coming here is harassment when the issue is properly being discussed elsewhere.--Tenebrae (talk) 19:50, 27 August 2017 (UTC)

August 2017[edit]

Information icon Please do not attack other editors, as you did at Talk:Uma Thurman. Comment on content, not on contributors. Personal attacks damage the community and deter users. Please stay cool and keep this in mind while editing.

Warning is in regard to the following comment, "I even agree with the problematic Hillbillyholiday on that", found here. The comment is an inappropriate and uncalled for personal attack. My suggestion is for you to strike "the problematic" from that sentence. -- ψλ 00:37, 31 August 2017 (UTC)

That is really stretching the definition of "personal attack." AlexEng(TALK) 00:49, 31 August 2017 (UTC)
(edit conflict) AlexEng, if Tenebrae had said, "Even I agree with Hillbillyholiday", that would have been sufficient and would get his point across. To add a commentary on Hillbillyholiday that speaks negatively of him as an editor, is a personal attack. We are to comment on edits, not editors. Especially when you consider the recent AN/I regarding Hillbillyholiday and the bad blood that obviously exists between them, I don't see how you can think it's anything but an attack. -- ψλ 00:57, 31 August 2017 (UTC)
Thank you, User:AlexEng. And to reply to @Winkelvi:: First, you give a false signature (-- ψλ) to obscure the fact that you are Winkelvi, who has been asked by me and others to stay away from me, a request I make again — along with pointing out that, hypocritically, you have told me not to go on your talk page, yet you come here. Second, Hillbillyholiday has just received a significant sanction at ANI for his problematic editing. "Problematic" is not a value judgment but an objective description of the issue at the ANI here. --Tenebrae (talk) 00:55, 31 August 2017 (UTC)
It's not a false signature, I changed the look of it months ago from WV to what it is now. Back to the point and warning above: "The problematic Hillbillyholiday" is a comment on him, not on his behavior. Certainly you know this as you are someone who makes his living on sentence structure, meaning, and syntax. -- ψλ 01:00, 31 August 2017 (UTC)
Once again, since Winkelvi suffers from "I can't hear you": Not an attack. An objective description, supported by strong evidence by not just me but many editors. If anyone is doing any attacking, it's User:Winkelvi, who comes to my talk page unbidden and uninvited, for no reason except to stir up trouble. It was a completely discretionary move that did not have to be made, yet he choose to be aggressive and do so. I say again: Stay away from my talk page. You are harassing me. --Tenebrae (talk) 01:02, 31 August 2017 (UTC)
And when Hillbillyholiday is viciously cursing at the admin who blocked him, among other incivilities, the issue isn't his edits — it's his behavior. --Tenebrae (talk) 01:04, 31 August 2017 (UTC)
I have no interest in going 'round and 'round with you on this and will close my part of the discussion with the following: HH thanked me for the warning. I take that as his agreement with me that you personally attacked his character. My personal stand on this is clear: it was an attack against him as an editor, not his behavior -- that is blatantly obvious since you have a long, long history of stating things exactly as you want them to be read, with no misunderstanding. That in mind, you really should strike the attacking phrase as a show of good faith and civility. -- ψλ 01:12, 31 August 2017 (UTC)
To put it more bluntly than "completely discretionary move": This is none of your business ... and you do it only to attack and annoy me, as you have sadistically relished in doing in the past. Second: These comments. This edit summary. Quote from the admin sanction: "Hillbillyholiday is encouraged to take disputes to the article talk page or the BLP noticeboard" — since he was not doing that, preferring to insult, belittle and demean other editors. His behavior was problematic, and this is an extremely polite way to put it. But again: This is none of your business, and I see exactly what you're doing. Come back to my talk page, and I'm seeking admin intervention for your harassment. --Tenebrae (talk) 01:20, 31 August 2017 (UTC)

Rande Gerber birthdate[edit]

Hello Tenebrae,

How are you? I would like to ask you a question about the birthdate of Rande Gerber. Most articles tells that his birthdate is April 27, 1962 but all of them are not "serious" sources to my opinion. I found an article in The Boston Herald who cite a source from People that on Thursday April 27, 2017 Rande Gerber celebrates this day his 54th anniversary. If we do the math it means he would have been born on April 27... 1963 ! It's the only serious source I found but I'm not sure if the journalist from People is meaning really this or if he/she miscalculated by accident. I don't dare risking putting this source on the wiki article for his birthdate in 1963. I would like to ask you your advice for that, if you want. Here is the link -> [13] Thanks, my friend. --Danielvis08 (talk) 04:11, 31 August 2017 (UTC)

Here is the original article by Nicole Sands from People -> [14] --Danielvis08 (talk) 04:16, 31 August 2017 (UTC)
@Danielvis08: Oy! Yes, my guess is your guess, especially given how the tequila company for which he had modeled said "bringing the party since '62." I think what I can do is point out the discrepancy to People and see how they handle it — they may recheck their figures and update the article.--Tenebrae (talk) 19:35, 31 August 2017 (UTC)
Thanks Tenebrae. Specially since I saw another serious source who, on May 17, 2017 say that he is aged 55 years old and born in 1962 in Long Island -> [15]. --Danielvis08 (talk) 20:42, 31 August 2017 (UTC)
@Danielvis08: I think the confluence of so many outlets saying 1962 indicates that the 1963 suggestion is a fringe outlier and likely a math error. I think you're right. I'd support that. (People hasn't changed anything on its April 27 article.) --Tenebrae (talk) 02:07, 1 September 2017 (UTC)

Infobox Image[edit]

Hi, Tenebrae. Thought maybe you could weigh in on a proposed infobox image change at this talk page. Any input would be appreciated. DrRC (talk) 01:48, 5 October 2017 (UTC)

Cry Havoc redux[edit]

I appreciated your kind words at Talk:Cry 'Havoc' and was hoping to consult with you on the remainder of this topic. I made a few related edits, with one (a redlink) at Talk:Cry "Havoc" here and two others here and here by moving Cry Havoc to Cry Havoc (board game) and redirecting Cry Havoc to the Cry havoc dab page. I also considered whether Cry 'Havoc' should be moved to Cry 'Havoc' (film), with Cry Havoc (film) redirecting to it.

I would be grateful for your advice, however, as to whether such edits constitute ignoring of WP:SMALLDETAILS and, importantly, whether you would support such changes or would prefer some other changes or no additional ones. —Roman Spinner (talk)(contribs) 21:59, 21 October 2017 (UTC)

Hiya, Tenebrae. Thank you for your reply as I was hoping that you wouldn't have an objection to my completing the redlinked moves mentioned above. You're right, of course, that the small detail of the quotes should be sufficient for disambiguation but, taking into account such titles as Marry Me (1932 film) and Marry Me! (1949 film) --- rather than Marry Me (film) and Marry Me! --- or Remember? (1939 film) and Remember (2015 film) --- rather than Remember? and Remember (film) --- the addition of qualifiers might seem to follow an already established pattern, such as it is. Needless to say (but said anyway), the forms without the qualifiers (Marry Me!) already redirect or would redirect to the forms with qualifiers (Marry Me! (1949 film)).
I realize that the comparisons aren't exact since there is only one film titled Cry 'Havoc', but since there is also Cry Havoc (board game) which was originally titled simply Cry Havoc, it just seemed that having a qualifier for the film would make it all clearer. Sorry to go on at length with this, but I felt that such an explanation might put it all into perspective. Thank you again and everything appears to have a way of falling into place after exchanging views with you. —Roman Spinner (talk)(contribs) 23:01, 23 October 2017 (UTC)

Robert Knepper neutrality[edit]

Hi, I'm a bit confused as to why the rape accusation on the Robert Knepper page should be under the Personal life section rather than its own Controversy section due to neutrality? It's a controversial subject, and other articles which include controversial items are under their own heading. Abbyjjjj96 (talk) 19:34, 9 November 2017 (UTC)

@Abbyjjjj96: Glad you asked. See WP:CSECTION: "Avoid sections...focusing on criticisms or controversies." There's a whole section at this page explaining why in detail. --Tenebrae (talk) 19:41, 9 November 2017 (UTC)
I still find this a bit confusing since so many other articles have controversy sections, but thank you for the response and page link. —Abbyjjjj96 (talk) 16:39, 10 November 2017 (UTC)
@Abbyjjjj96: I agree with you 100% — Wikipedia can often be confusing until we get the hang of it. What you're describing is a common phenomenon called WP:OTHERSTUFF, which is basically that when other articles are doing things below standards or not according to policies/guidelines, we try to bring them up, rather than bring the article that we're working on down. But you've got one very important skill: communicating and collaborating with fellow editors. I can't tell you how productive that is and how more smoothy it makes everything run. I thank you for that! --Tenebrae (talk) 20:16, 12 November 2017 (UTC)

Patapan[edit]

Hi Tenebrae, I don't have much interest in including the recordings by various notable musicians, but do question the summary [16]. Apparently my edits as an IP don't rate. Cheers, 2601:188:180:11F0:65F5:930C:B0B2:CD63 (talk) 22:47, 12 November 2017 (UTC)

@2601:188:180:11F0:65F5:930C:B0B2:CD63: The song has been recorded probably hundreds of times. It's POV and personal preference to single out three recordings.--Tenebrae (talk) 22:54, 12 November 2017 (UTC)
Understood, and I can appreciate that as reason to revert my restoration. But please, not a matter of registered accounts as being reliable by default. 2601:188:180:11F0:65F5:930C:B0B2:CD63 (talk) 22:57, 12 November 2017 (UTC)

Ann-Margret[edit]

Hello my friend Tenebrae,

I happen to be on the genealogy site Ancestry and they have the births for Sweden from the 1800s until 1943. I saw that Ann-Margret was born in Stockholm, not Valsjobyn, she probably moved there when she was very young. I found a source from The Hollywood Reporter who tells she was born in Stockholm -> [17]. Here is another great source for Stockholm -> [18]. On the article in French I corrected it for Stockholm. And one of the 2 sources used in en:wiki is Film Reference who, since then, have also changed it too -> [19]. Just to let you know. --Danielvis08 (talk) 20:41, 16 November 2017 (UTC)

No attacks[edit]

Hi, Tenebrae. I see that you have a history of "attacking other editors" as evidenced in your talk page in August 2017. Please refrain from such attacks on my own talk page. Thanks. Bueller 007 (talk) 01:44, 17 November 2017 (UTC)

Mary Boone[edit]

I've made a suggestion on the Mary Boone talk page to make the section you are concerned about read less promotional. I think it is important to note that she and her gallery continued to have influence after the art market crash. We can discuss there. Knulclunk (talk) 16:34, 17 November 2017 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Thanks for commenting on my talk page. I suppose it is possible, though it seems most unlikely, that an established daily newspaper would have such glaring mistakes. Besides, the user does not give a conflicting source, which one would think would be possible for a celebrity.

I have been busier than usual this year and extraordinarily busy this month so I have been offline for much longer than I usually have been. I do expect to have this pattern continue for a few months. I think I will put a version of the "friendly talk page stalkers" template on my page. Donner60 (talk) 23:09, 17 November 2017 (UTC)
