Attack pages[edit]

Hi. When you find an attack page like Mike Crapulli it's a good thing to blank it, as you did, but it's also worth putting {{db-attack}} on it (which gets it deleted, along with the attack material which is still there in the history), and copying to the originator's talk page the warning which that template generates. Regards, JohnCD (talk) 15:34, 8 April 2008 (UTC)

Thanks. I am not that experienced an editor. I just did what I thought was right. Thanks again for telling me how to handle an attack page. Yojimbo501 (talk) 15:40, 8 April 2008 (UTC)

Hello, I've declined the speedy deletion on this as it does not meet CSD G 10. Cheers, and happy editing. Dlohcierekim 16:31, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

No problem. I'm not aware of a speedy criterion for books yet. Probably the PROD is the best way to go. Cheers, Dlohcierekim 16:33, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

Category talk:Scenic highways in Oregon[edit]

This isn't an article; it's a talk page for helping to populate the category. I removed the improper "notability" tag. --NE2 17:54, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

Your CSD tagging of Joke it[edit]

I have deleted the article you tagged, but I need to let you know about a couple of problems. First, please don’t blank the page you are tagging. Second, that page was not a bio or anything else that would be covered under WP:CSD#A7, it was pure vandalism, so I deleted it under WP:CSD#G3. Please be certain of the criteria you are using before tagging. Thanks. —Travistalk 18:14, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

  • As it turned out, this wasn’t much of a problem, but in my opinion, accuracy is more important than speed. Cheers —Travistalk 19:02, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

Sorry but it's just I have gotten use to tagging thing pretty quickly (however this sadly does result in accidents sometimes). Yojimbo501 (talk) 21:33, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

Amy lynne holbrook[edit]

I noticed you tagged Amy lynne holbrook with a CSD that claimed it was an article about a person that did not assert the notability of the subject. However, the keyword in that statement is "assert." The subject doesn't have to be notable, the article just has to say that the person is. Claiming that the person is a former Miss USA, etc, is certainly in my eyes an assertion of notability. Just letting you know that I removed the tag. —  scetoaux (T|C) 21:02, 21 April 2008 (UTC)

Hey, well Adam seems to agree with me now, but it seems another IP address is arguing with him now! He says there's 23 episodes like us, but this random person say's there's 24. I think the problem has been resolved but I'll have to see. Cheers! Corn.u.co.pia Discussion 08:15, 30 April 2008 (UTC)

Kon Ichikawa[edit]

No problem-- your original removal of the film made me search around quite a bit too, to confirm it... I knew it was a Tezuka manga, but apparently Ichikawa made a film of it too.. And that film is probably worth an article... Cheers! Dekkappai (talk) 23:31, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

Help[edit]

{{help me}} I want to know if there is any chance for articles that don't have enough Info out there to get past being a stub or start. I ask this because an article I've worked on heavily (Fires on the Plain (film)) can't go past start simply because there isn't enough info. Yojimbo501 (talk) 23:44, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

Oh-- you mean the film? Well, the above applies to that too... Don't give up-- I'll chip in next week. Cheers! Dekkappai (talk) 23:55, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

...and here we can see the James Quandt-edited book on Ichikawa has a chapter, "Fires on the Plain: The human cost of the Pacific War" by William B. Hauser, pp. 205-216... Dekkappai (talk) 00:21, 3 May 2008 (UTC)
Thanks. You've all been a real help. But Dekkappai... is there a website showing all this info or will I have to buy it? Yojimbo501 (talk) 00:24, 3 May 2008 (UTC)
Oh yeah, thanks for the chapter ;) Yojimbo501 (talk) 00:26, 3 May 2008 (UTC)
First, look around the Internet for online copies of the journal articles. Variety, for one, should be out there. Then, try the local library. If you need the Quandt chapter, I've got the book handy, and would be happy to give you quotes from it later, if you don't have it. Dekkappai (talk) 00:29, 3 May 2008 (UTC)
Thanks. I'm gonna go offline for the moment but will be back. Yojimbo501 (talk) 00:31, 3 May 2008 (UTC)
OK-- I'll be offline for the weekend, but will take notes from the Quandt & see what I can add to the article next week. Happy editing! Dekkappai (talk) 00:34, 3 May 2008 (UTC)

Ichikawa / Fires[edit]

Hi, Yojimbo. I skimmed through the Quandt book this weekend and took some notes which I've put into the article. I lumped them mostly under "Reception" though it's really more like interpretation/criticism, etc. Feel free to move them around as you see fit. I also added an interesting quote from Ichikawa on his influences-- Disney & Chaplin. I notice the article implies that Ichikawa's style is overwhelmingly bleak, as the three war films imply. In the book, it's pointed out several times that this is a misleading impression of Ichikawa's career because of these three films being his most-circulated work. Actually he was quite eclectic, and made some very light films. If you're working on that article, it would be worth it to add this probably. I'll look around for more reviews of Fires-- If we can't locate the Variety review online, I can find a hard copy. I got all those sources through an online database-- Film Index International. You might want to see if your local library has it, and you can access it through your library card. I'll look around for other contemporary reviews too-- New York Times, etc. I'm sure there's a lot out there on a major film like this. Dekkappai (talk) 17:30, 5 May 2008 (UTC)

No problem, Yojimbo. I'll look around for more print-reviews this week. Keep plugging away on it, it'll be a good article! Dekkappai (talk) 23:18, 5 May 2008 (UTC)
Hi again Yojimbo-- Yes, I'll work on reformatting the citations. For finding DVD-release info, I think Amazon is considered a reliable source (not sure if some of the more extremist editors consider it so though). Anyway Amazon's Fires on the Plain listing says it was released March 13, 2007. Dekkappai (talk) 21:07, 6 May 2008 (UTC)

Hi Yojimbo-- I've found hard-copies of the contemporary Variety review and a contemporary New York Times review-- both are harsh, but positive in a way. Interesting. I'll add quotes/paraphrasings of them tonight. By the way, if you like this kind of film, do you know Kinji Fukasaku's Under the Flag of the Rising Sun? One of the best anti-war films, I think. I started a stub on it a while ago, and it hasn't grown much. Dekkappai (talk) 18:37, 7 May 2008 (UTC)

Harsh in that they go on & on about how awful it is to watch, implying that it's needlessly extreme-- even warning viewers away from it... but they they kind of grudgingly admit that it's well-made, and makes its point. I suspect that the different war-experiences between Japan & America probably had something to do with it-- especially in the pre-Vietnam days... Dekkappai (talk) 20:21, 7 May 2008 (UTC)

Yes, you can cite DVD commentaries, extras, interviews, etc. It's a good idea to put down the exact point at which such & such a statement is made. If you're not averse to taking a glance at an article on a softcore S/M film, check Wife to be Sacrificed-- in the Notes section, at #13, I quoted the director in a documentary that comes with the DVD. The citation template fills it out as "Event occurs at Chapter 4, 45:50." IMDb isn't considered a reliable source for much more than film personnel, and it's probably better to rely on a better source even for that. Include the IMDb link at the article, of course, but cite to the best sources you can, and IMDb is something like Wikipedia, in that anyone can edit it. Dekkappai (talk) 01:31, 8 May 2008 (UTC)

Oh, I'm not saying it's untrue. It very well could be. It's just that IMDb is not considered a good source for this kind of information... It's always best if whoever wrote that told where he got the story, then we could cite that. Yes-- look through the DVD booklet, commentary, whatever-- that would be considered reliable. Dekkappai (talk) 18:51, 8 May 2008 (UTC)

No problem, Yojimbo, my pleasure. If you need any help on a Japanese or Korean film, just drop me a line-- I'm a big fan of a lot of their films and always happy to contribute to Korea/Japan film articles. I still haven't worked through the main chapter on Fires on the Plain, and plan to do that later. Dekkappai (talk) 23:00, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

I have incorporated the japanese material into vampire and reworded so it all makes sense. Sounds like an interesting book :) Cheers, Casliber (talk · contribs) 03:02, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

Fires on the Plain[edit]

Good job on the article so far, and here are a few recommendations I have on further improving the article:

  1. Continue to expand the lead so that it better summarizes the rest of the article, briefly touching on each section. For guidelines see WP:LEAD.
  2. For the main image Image:Fires on the Plain DVD.jpg, on the image's page, you need to specify the rationale stating that it is being used for this article. Just reword the heading to: "Fair Use Rationale for Fires on the Plain (film)". Make sure you add a link for the film, or eventually some bot could come by and put it up for deletion because it doesn't specifically name the film in the heading.
  3. The lead is at an acceptable length, and appears to cover the plot well. Good job there.
  4. If you can, continue to expand the production section further. Mention more about the script, filming locations/techniques, casting, etc. The more comprehensive this is, the better the article looks.
  5. The reception section looks good but may be a bit long in comparison to the other sections in the article. I would recommend seeing if you can cut maybe a few reviews, keeping the most notable/important reviews in.
  6. For availability, you can mention if there are any particular special features if on DVD and perhaps mention DVD sales/rentals in its first weeks of release.
  7. If possible, add more sections related to the music of the film, marketing, etc. The more details of the topic the article covers, the better it will appear.

Good job so far, it looks like you have done a lot of work with the article. It is great that there are a lot of sources in the article, and keep looking for more to find more information for the article. If you would like further clarification or have any more questions, let me know and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. --Nehrams2020 (talk) 07:40, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

As to getting an image to illustrate the article. My usual resort is to create a screencapture of a frame of the film and to use the following template to identify the source:
Non-free media information and use rationale for Fires on the Plain
Description

Screenshot

Source

DVD copy of the film screenshot

Article

Fires on the Plain

Portion used

Low resolution?

Purpose of use

Replaceable? Fair use rationale

1. This image is being used to illustrate the article on the movie in question and is used for informational or educational purposes only. 2. This image is of low resolution. 3. It is believed that this image will not devalue the ability of the copyright holder to profit from the original work. 4. No alternate, free image exists that can be used to illustrate the subject matter.

Fair useFair use of copyrighted material in the context of Fires on the Plain//en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Yojimbo501

Be sure to fill in the all the pertinent information. As to the other question you posed: "Do you think the "Awards" section should be a subsection of the "Reception" section?" Both sections can remain as separate areas. FWiW, copy/paste the template to use as an edit guide for the illustration you are using. Bzuk (talk) 20:18, 14 May 2008 (UTC).

  • Thanks for the note, Yojimbo. I wouldn't think about removing much content at this point. If one section is much larger than another, it's because the others are too small. Keep building them up. You might put parts of the larger section into the smaller ones, but this is still a work in progress. This is a major film and it deserves a major article. Keep up the good work! Dekkappai (talk) 20:57, 14 May 2008 (UTC)
The image already has a fair use rationale it is the rationale provided by Doctor Sunshine on the image's page. I never really understood fair use rationales when I first started, and it took a while to get a hold of. The rationale is just a list of reasons why an editor believes that the non-free image should be allowed to be used in the article. If there isn't a sufficient rationale, it could be deleted. Generally, non-free images are allowed to be used for media and educational purposes, so long as there is a justifiable reason to use it. I'll modify it for you and you can go ahead and take a look at it for future images that you work with. The template above listed by Bzuk is a great way to ensure that the image isn't deleted as it covers all of the basics. If you want to learn more information about film images, take a look at the project's style guidelines. It details how an image should be set up and includes several example images. The awards section could be a subsection since it is only a few sentences. If you ever expand that further, you can choose to split it off into its own section again or continue to list it under reception. I would definitely leave the RottenTomatoes review in, as it takes the reviews of multiple sources and is a great resource (it is listed in most reception sections I've seen). For the reception section, I'd recommend cutting some of the reviewers' mentioned reviews. For example, consider using only one or two sentences of Jamie S. Rich's review if you think some of it isn't really necessary. I hope that cleared some things up for you. If not, fire away on my page and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. --Nehrams2020 (talk) 21:28, 14 May 2008 (UTC)
The cast section should come directly after plot ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 21:52, 14 May 2008 (UTC)
Actually after production but I often like it as the next section myself. Maybe this is an area that can be explored in the WP:Film Article guideline. I could live with it being either way. FWiW Bzuk (talk) 04:42, 15 May 2008 (UTC).
Well actually I have always added cast afte rplot and I was under the impression this wa sin the guidelines too. FA articles I have worked on like Casino Royale (2006 film) all have cast after plot. Also that rationale is not adequate and it doesn't even link to the film article so it will soon enough be found by a bot anyway. I'll add a proper rationale for you and try to find a screenshot also ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 08:54, 15 May 2008 (UTC)

P.S. I'm loving your user name. Something tells me it isn't a tribute to Jumbo Wales himself but rather the subject of Sergio Leone's plot copying! ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 09:15, 15 May 2008 (UTC) I have kindly added a rationale for you:

By the way, Yojimbo, I've got a film-poster template set up HERE. Just copy the code into notepad and do the replaces (replace ***FILM NAME*** with the film's name, etc.), then cut out the top five lines and paste it into the image description. I find it quick and useful-- Cheers! Dekkappai (talk) 16:04, 15 May 2008 (UTC)

Rationale for use on wikipedia in the article Fires on the Plain (film)[edit]

Ichikawa/Fires[edit]

Hi, Yojimbo. I see you've done a lot more work on it. It's still not a big article though, by any means, so I wouldn't think about cutting out material just to make it shorter, at least at this stage. Sure, re-arrange things... Some of the "Reception" could actually go into an "Interpretations" or "Criticisms" section... move things around, keep tinkering with it. If the article as a whole seems too large, then I'd think about what could be left out. Dekkappai (talk) 16:04, 27 May 2008 (UTC)

Greek[edit]

I looked at the revision with the section in it as well and don't believe it to be necessary. It almost appears to be trivia. If anything, one small sentence in the intro or other relevant section could mention it, but other than that, a whole section isn't needed unless it has been commented on by numerous sources or has other importance (which I doubt). However, if the section continues to be added, don't continually revert it as you may break the WP:3RR rule. I'd recommend discussing it on the talk page of the article, and if nothing gets accomplished there, try the WikiProject:TV talk page. Usually, if all of the members remain civil, an adequate solution can be found. Don't worry about contacting me for help, everybody needs help at times and I'm always happy to help if possible. If you need further clarification or assistance, let me know. --Nehrams2020 (talk) 04:29, 29 May 2008 (UTC)

Help?[edit]

{{help me}}

I don't know how to post pictures, and for some of the articles I'm working on, I'd like to know how to. As you can see above, various editors have tried to help me, but it just hasn't been working. Yojimbo501 (talk) 21:38, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

  • What part specifically do you need help with? Ten Pound Hammer and his otters(Broken clamshellsOtter chirps) 21:47, 1 June 2008 (UTC)
  • If you want to add an existing image to an article, type [[Image:File name.jpg|right|Optional caption.]] to the article – replacing File name.jpg with the actual file name of the image, right with the alignment of the image on the page and Optional caption with the caption, which of course, is optional. See our picture tutorial for more information.
  • If you want to upload an image from your computer, to put in an article, you must find out what license the image is licensed under. If you know your image is licensed under a free-license, upload it to the Wikimedia Commons, where all projects have access to the image. If you are unsure what license your image is licensed under, see the file upload wizard for more information. Also, please read Wikipedia's image use policy, because if you upload the image under a false license, you may be blocked.

Hope this has helped. Your question was quite vague, so if you ask again please be more specific. -Optigan13 (talk) 21:51, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

Yojimbo, is this the proper way to use the "User Talk" feature? Also, I don't know how to use the "Discussion" feature within a particular article. I'm at a loss, and no one has answered me on this.Magnet For Knowledge (talk) 01:19, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

Re: stub sorting[edit]

No problem. I'm not a stub sorter either. I just saw that you hadn't sorted it, so I found this list and chose what seemed to be the most appropriate. Cheers! J.delanoygabsadds 19:38, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

Onibaba picture help[edit]

Hi! I noticed you are struggling quite valiantly to get an image on the Onibaba article. I'd like to help! Your code for uploading an image is correct but it only looks like you didn't upload the image to wikipedia. Was this picture online or one you took yourself? If it's somewhere else online, I can help you get it there if you'd like! Get back to me on my talk page if you need more help. Andrzejbanas (talk) 02:48, 7 June 2008 (UTC)

I added the picture! With relevence and more. Wow! That hungarian article of Onibaba is huge! I think this is the one you wanted. If the article gets larger maybe we could add one other image, but for now I think this is good. Andrzejbanas (talk) 18:24, 7 June 2008 (UTC)
Hi again, godo job on that article too! I almost picked up that movie on dvd a few days ago. The citations are probably fine with that, I'm not an expert in that area but I think it's more of a reference point of when something was cited for more articles that would be changing more, like on topics of politics and such. Not so much on more historical things, like production information of movie isn't likely to get outdated as easily. Andrzejbanas (talk) 19:13, 8 June 2008 (UTC)

My pet hater[edit]

Oh lord, what's he up to now (other than this)? --Orange Mike | Talk 20:26, 20 June 2008 (UTC)

Turns out he dropped extra copies of Haters' Magazine off at my place of employ's main branch, so everybody could learn how evil I am! --Orange Mike | Talk 12:59, 23 June 2008 (UTC)

Saving Private Ryan[edit]

My explanation of it (which was also mentioned in the discussion you commented on) is that the German was already in shock with such close combat with Mellish and that he couldn't kill Upham in close combat either. That and Upham's cowering away. bibliomaniac15 00:22, 28 June 2008 (UTC)
