Recreation of Joey Rainbow[edit]

I've spoken to Cirt, the deleter of said article three years earlier and I have been working on it in my userspace for a while and feel it is ready to go as I now have several sources with a large development section and he has no objection but did advise me to consult a few wikiprojects before proceeding. Is anyone opposed to this? Conquistador2k6Talk to me, Dammit!

Proposed deletion of Maggie Barnes (Dallas)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Maggie Barnes (Dallas) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

WP:N - no mention of notability; nonnotable secondary TV soap opera character

While all 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. (talk)

Antagonists by role[edit]

Category:Antagonists by role is currently tagged as a container (subcats only), but has several articles directly included, violating the container tag. It seems to me to be a valid use of the container tag, and I was interested in adding a subcategory for the pages there. I see that in years gone by, there were categories like Category:Fictional villains which were deleted by consensus, so wanted to bring it up here. The only idea I've come up with is something like 'Villainous antagonists', since all the pages directly categorized there seem to refer to the term 'villain'...

WP:Common name and fictional characters solely or mostly known by their first names[edit]

I started a WP:RfC that is stunted, presumably due to the bickering and WP:Too long; didn't read nature of it. It concerns fictional characters that are primarily known by their first names (or rather solely known by their first names to the general public). In cases such as these, is it best to go with the official full names or with the sole name and a disambiguation to assist it (if the disambiguation is needed), such as in the case of Faith (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)? In the case of Faith, she is primarily known simply by that first name, and it was only years later that her last name was revealed and used for subsequent material. It's a similar matter for The Walking Dead characters at the center of of the WP:RfC I started; see Talk:Sasha Williams (The Walking Dead)#Requested move discussion. And in some cases, their last names are only revealed in the comics or in the television series, meaning that the last names may be known in one medium but not in the another, and that the only way that readers would know the last name is if they Googled it or heard it on television via an interview. So we are commonly left with this and this type of wording that is commonly altered or removed. And since general readers do not know the full names, they won't be typing the full names into the Wikipedia search bar. So if The Walking Dead character articles are to have their full names in the titles of their articles, what does that mean for character articles like Faith (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)? WP:CRITERIA states, "Consistency – The title is consistent with the pattern of similar articles' titles."

I ask that you consider commenting in the Talk:Sasha Williams (The Walking Dead)#Requested move discussion to help resolve this. Flyer22 (talk) 17:07, 29 September 2015 (UTC)

Nellie Oleson[edit]

Nellie Oleson appears to be almost entirely original research, but I'm not sure how WP:OR applies to articles about ficitonal characters. A big problem appears to be that the bulk of the article is based on the unsourced premise in the Nellie Owens section that says, "Nellie Owens, and possibly two other girls, are the basis for the fictional Nellie Oleson." Basing a large portion of an article's content on an unsourced possibility seems very problematic. Hopefully, editors with a lot more knowledge than me on this matter can take a look at the article and edit it accordingly. I made a couple edits I felt were non-contentious, but have left it at that for now. Czoal (talk) 21:43, 8 October 2015 (UTC)

I rearranged material slightly between section 1 (historical Nellie Owens), the meagre lead, and section 4.1 (Fictional Nellie: Little House books); expanded the latter from our Little House book articles and library catalog records.
The Italian language it:Nellie Oleson is more like what I have learned to expect from such characters --less Nellie Owen and other pre-Ingalls Wilder history, more Alison Arngrim and post-Ingalls Wilder screen adaptation. It does provide five English-language formal references. (I'll post much the same at Talk:Nellie Oleson.)
