Proposed deletion of Brett Dalton[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Brett Dalton has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Most notable role is in a TV series that hasn't even aired yet. WP:CRYSTAL

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

"Listen" plot summary[edit]

Thanks for writing a short plot summary for Listen (Doctor Who) on Doctor Who (series 8). However, the summary is more of a "teaser" than it is a full summary, and we've generally been trying to summarize the whole plot instead. So if you have time, do you think you could expand it to cover the entire episode? Thanks, G S Palmer (talkcontribs) 04:42, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

The Theory of Everything plot[edit]

Can you trim your plot work at The Theory of Everything (2014 film)? The guideline at WP:FILMPLOT instructs us to limit the plot section to 700 words. I use this tool to check the size. I would trim the plot myself but I haven't seen the film. Binksternet (talk) 17:44, 16 January 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for February 25[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Crowfall, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page PC (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Ms. Marvel[edit]

Thank you, for your edits to Ms. Marvel (Kamala Khan) but you are correct, we are trying to avoid the trappings of most comic book character articles. The vast majority are written from an in-universe perspective and a lot of them are tagged as such. It was thinking by some that comic book related articles should be held to a different standard but we shown with Ms. Marvel and few others that we can write good articles about comic books. I am not saying the information you desire to add cannot be added but not in that manner, which is basically just a plot description. One way is to find a third-party source which discusses the characters involvement in the series.--TriiipleThreat (talk) 09:10, 20 April 2015 (UTC)

June 2015[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Doniago. I noticed that you made a change to an article, Krypton (comics), but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed and archived in the page history for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you need guidance on referencing, please see the referencing for beginners tutorial, or if you think I made a mistake, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. DonIago (talk) 02:34, 1 June 2015 (UTC)

Miles Morales[edit]

Hi. Regarding this edit, just so you know, the information on ComicBook.com is user-generated, which means that that site is not considered reliable as a source. In addition, that story was merely repeating a Daily News story, so the proper thing would've been to simply cite the News as the source, since that publication is considered reliable. For now, don't worry about it; I changed the citation. Thanks. :-) Nightscream (talk) 20:37, 21 June 2015 (UTC)

Ghostbusters (2016 film)[edit]

While your perspective on things is appreciated (as a matter of fact, I oppose using "positive" as well), please see Talk:Ghostbusters (2016 film)/Archive 3 for a recent discussion on including summary statements. Since we couldn't agree on "mixed" vs "positive", we decided to omit it. Readers can look at the numbers and draw their own conclusions. If you'd like to start a new discussion to change the past consensus, then feel free on the article talk page. Hope that helps, as I'd like to avoid editors getting caught up in a unnecessary edit war that will lead to page protection and possibly blocks. --GoneIn60 (talk) 13:15, 30 September 2016 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:GigiGorgeous.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:GigiGorgeous.jpg. I noticed that this file is being used under a claim of fair use. However, I think that the way it is being used fails the first non-free content criterion. This criterion states that files used under claims of fair use may have no free equivalent; in other words, if the file could be adequately covered by a freely-licensed file or by text alone, then it may not be used on Wikipedia. If you believe this file is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and add the text {{di-replaceable fair use disputed|<your reason>}} below the original replaceable fair use template, replacing <your reason> with a short explanation of why the file is not replaceable.
  2. On the file discussion page, write a full explanation of why you believe the file is not replaceable.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. — Train2104 (t • c) 04:28, 20 February 2017 (UTC)
