Miscategorisation at The Threepenny Opera[edit]

Would any active members please take a look at Talk:The Threepenny Opera. This musical has been miscategoried as an "opera" for a long time. Even the opera-source, Grove says that it's a musical. In the list of "Operas, Operettas, Musicals and Ballets", it is described as "play with music". (Grove 1980 v.20, 309). The arguments against calling it an opera are that, as the image in the article states unambiguously, as does the lede, that it is a "play with music", or a musical. The categorisation in place is OR. A search on Youtube for recordings offers a common-sense based definition as well. No one who has actually experienced the work imagines it's an opera. Our article ought not to mislead its readers with a false categorisation, regardless of a Wikiproject's (false) sense of ownership. Please take a look and comment.  • DP •  {huh?} 16:20, 6 September 2016 (UTC)

Magic Wand Icon 229981 Color Flipped.svg

Greetings WikiProject Theatre Members!

This is a one-time-only message to inform you about a technical proposal to revive your Popular Pages list in the 2016 Community Wishlist Survey that I think you may be interested in reviewing and perhaps even voting for:

If the above proposal gets in the Top 10 based on the votes, there is a high likelihood of this bot being restored so your project will again see monthly updates of popular pages.

Further, there are over 260 proposals in all to review and vote for, across many aspects of wikis.

Thank you for your consideration. Please note that voting for proposals continues through December 12, 2016.

Best regards, SteviethemanDelivered: 18:09, 7 December 2016 (UTC)

Help with Kerry Norton-Smyser[edit]

Hey all! Could someone take a look at Kerry Norton-Smyser? It has about a half-dozen different tagged issues. I'm hoping someone with a bit more knowledge in this kind of thing could cut through some of the fluff there and see if an encyclopedia article can be carved out. Thanks a bunch! Happy editing!

Looking at it now. Needs a good bit of cleanup, but should be a viable article. --RL0919 (talk) 21:08, 9 December 2016 (UTC)
