Request

Hello, I greatly appreciate that you helped me out on The Sword in the Stone (film). Could you perhaps take a look at the following articles I have edited that might need in-universe plot details removed:

I already took a look at Rock-a-Doodle, however, I wonder if further cuts might need to be made.

I also plan to look at One Hundred and One Dalmatians and 101 Dalmatians II: Patch's London Adventure as they too have long cast lists.

Thank you. Friendshipfan (talk) 08:23, 6 September 2018 (UTC)

No promises, but I'll see what I can do! DonIago (talk) 12:41, 6 September 2018 (UTC)

Cloud Atlas Edit

Half-Lives: The First Luisa Rey Mystery (Part 1)

"Another plant employee gives her a copy of Sixsmith's report, and then the plane he is on explodes."

We do not find out the plane explodes until part 2. This is a huge spoiler. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 159.180.140.142 (talk) 19:15, 6 September 2018 (UTC)

If it does't happen until part 2, you're welcome to update the plot to place it in part 2, but simply removing it deletes a significant plot element. DonIago (talk) 20:03, 6 September 2018 (UTC)

'Portrait of Gina' documentary

Dear Doniago, thanks for having the courtesy to drop me an explanatory note when reverting my changes to the Lollobrigida entry. There are indeed multiple sources for this - probably the most reputable and reliable is the one from an academic monograph by film critic and Orson Welles scholar Jonathan Rosenbaum, so I'll restore the edit, but with that as a supporting reference - hope that's okay! Debonairchap (talk) 15:07, 18 September 2018 (UTC)

War of the Worlds

You said my inclusion of a novelization for the TV series War of the Worlds needs a source to establish "significance". What constitutes significance in your opinion? Yes, novelizations are common, but is that a reason for them not to be mentioned in Wikipedia? Wikipedia mentions DVD releases, after all, and they are far more common than novelizations. Also, novelizations with additional scenes and characters are less common, especially ones that change aspects of the original screenplay. Is that not significant? Does it need a citation, or does Wikipedia's following statement about film plot summaries apply: "basic descriptions of their plots are acceptable without reference to an outside source"? I don't believe obvious information should be excluded from a Wikipedia article just because a long-out-of-print book did not receive a lot of attention. So I would like to come to an understanding on this. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sm5574 (talkcontribs) 17:00, 19 September 2018 (UTC)

I think the issue could be mooted by providing a source that discusses the novelization in any detail. The text you added also included information bordering on original research. Hope this helps! DonIago (talk) 18:07, 19 September 2018 (UTC)

Baron Munchausen and Ace of Base's song removal

Baron Munchausen How should I add the information about Ace of Base's song into the article so that it won't be removed? AoB is a famous band and their song is about Munchausen, so I think it would be a nice addition to the article. - Ermöglicht (talk) 14:29, 21 September 2018 (UTC)

You need to provide a secondary source establishing that the song and the reference to Munchausen gained some level of attention, as discussed at WP:IPCV. Or, as I like to put it, you need a source that proves not just that the tree fell in the woods, but that it made a sound. Hope this helps! DonIago (talk) 15:55, 21 September 2018 (UTC)

Disruptive editing?

Why would call my editing distributive I’m not trying to be unnecessary or a vandalist I just want add more detail to a synopsis to a film which I get from clips or watching the movie. I only do it again because I thought it was a glitch okay. I’m still learning so please just let me be. Emilia I. Fernandez (talk) 17:12, 23 September 2018 (UTC)

Hi Emilia. Firstly, please note that new threads should generally be placed at the bottom of a Talk page. Secondly, as I noted in my message to you (and just now), you've frequently violated the word-count guidelines at WP:FILMPLOT (in short, keep it under 700 words). When multiple editors have left you messages about this, "I'm still learning" doesn't really cut it, because it should be easy enough for you to count how many words there are in a plot summary (but let me know if you're having trouble with that). Similarly, "please just let me be" isn't a reasonable request, because what you're doing, intentionally or otherwise, is disruptive, and it needs to stop. I hope you understand our concerns. DonIago (talk) 17:34, 23 September 2018 (UTC)

No I’m not ;-;

I wasn’t trying to violate it was just another detail. You know your not the only one who said stuff like this other people are scudding now me too and I’m sick of it I’m now starting to want to delete Wikipedia with all the article sensitivity. Plus I didn’t know I wore that many words I don’t keep track of the amount of words I write. And how was I supposed to know what it said I’m still learning you know. Emilia I. Fernandez (talk) 17:50, 23 September 2018 (UTC)

I'm not saying you were trying to be disruptive, but the end result was that you were, and while the admins can make allowances for an editor's intentions, if you keep making the same mistakes after being asked to stop, admins will take action to keep you from continuing to disrupt Wikipedia. I mean, that makes sense, doesn't it?
If you're not sure whether you've expanded the plot summary too much, drop it into MS Word or another word processor and check the word count before saving your changes.
Hope this helps. Unfortunately talking a gentle hand with people I don't know isn't really one of my strong suits, but I see someone else did respond at your Talk page. Cheers. DonIago (talk) 02:43, 24 September 2018 (UTC)

(Don't Fear) The Reaper

I've been meaning to get back to you. I don't just put things in articles for my health. I recall the song being in that movie. As you may notice, I have done hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of edits without issue. Threatening me over one doesn't make you look good in my eyes. If one of my edits is removed, I accept it. There's no need for the authoritah attitude, okay? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jbl1975 (talkcontribs)

Please read WP:V. "I recall the song being in that movie." isn't sufficient, as Wikipedia editors are not reliable sources. Additionally, you were advised multiple times not to add unsourced content, but were continuing to do so. This is disruptive behavior. If you hadn't been warned about this before my warning would have adopted a more gentle tone, but you appear to be a repeat offender. Cheers. DonIago (talk) 20:42, 3 October 2018 (UTC)

"Suicide" edit reversal

I can assume that my language and/or style was not perfect but what's the problem with reformulating it using more "encyclopedic" words? I think this information should be added in the article. Don't you agree? And don't you think you misused Rollback (cause there were no vandalism or "widespread unhelpful edit" (and also no "supply explanation"))? So let's decide how this information may be included in the article or please give an argument why it should be not included.--Oloddin (talk) 10:52, 3 October 2018 (UTC)

If I'd seen a way to reformulate it myself I would have done so. I would recommend raising the question at the article's Talk page, but I would note that there's already a paragraph that makes it clear that there isn't a "global" Christian view on suicide.
I supplied an explanation in my edit summary, so I don't really know what your concern is there. Cheers. DonIago (talk) 17:14, 3 October 2018 (UTC)
So what is your claim: just problems with style or that the whole statement is redundant in the article? I just wanted to emphasize that there are a large number of Christians who consider that suicide doesn't necessary mean loss of salvation and going to hell (as usually sin does according to mainstream Christian view) with several sources which support it. There are similar statements in the article Religious_views_on_suicide: "Christianity also does not say that suicide is an unforgivable sin" and "Some other denominations of Christianity may not condemn those who commit suicide per se as committing a sin". Why can't something like this be in the main article?--Oloddin (talk) 17:40, 3 October 2018 (UTC)
Both, really. As I said, if you feel it should be included anyway, you are welcome to discuss at the article's Talk page so that other editors can also weigh in. Cheers. DonIago (talk) 20:43, 3 October 2018 (UTC)
Anyway, it would be better to discuss first and then do such "hard" actions as rollback. Maybe if my edit had "survive" longer some other editors would have corrected style errors and my statements would fit better. Editors in Wikipedia are equal, and I don't need to convene a council every time I want to add some information in the article because one editor considered it inappropriate. But I also don't want to be involved in edit warring. Tomorrow I'll see what is the best option: to rephrase the statements, to start a discussion on page's talk page or simply to leave it as it is and forget about the whole thing. So now I have only one (final) question to you: what words in my sentence do I need to change to make it "encyclopedic"?Oloddin (talk) 21:58, 3 October 2018 (UTC)
Your edits have survived in the article's history, so it's easy enough to point to them as a WP:DIFF and ask for others' opinions. Happy to help you with that if you need it. I'd suggest you read WP:BRD though. As you said, every editor is equal, and part of that means that every editor has the right to revert an edit that they don't feel improves the quality of an an article, also without convening a council. When disputes occur over improvements, that's when there should be discussion to form a WP:CONSENSUS. Besides your statement being redundant, you used the very imprecise phrasing "a lot" IIRC, and also used a contraction. Per WP:TONE the latter at least shouldn't be done. Hope this helps. DonIago (talk) 23:13, 3 October 2018 (UTC)

I think you made a mistake

In fact, I know you did.

Regarding my inclusion of the term "nail puzzle" as a alternate name for "wire puzzle", you said:

"Hello, I'm Doniago. I noticed that you made one or more changes to an article, Disentanglement puzzle, 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) 12:59, 25 September 2018 (UTC)"

How many citations would you like? A 10 second Google search turned up about 11,000,000 of them. Here's a few:

https://www.shopclues.com/box-of-5-nails-puzzles-in-wood-box-by-professor-puzzle--bonus-style-menace-mini-wire-puzzle-1.html


In fact, these puzzles were called "nail puzzles" long before they were called "wire puzzles". I'm rather surprised that someone watching over that article wouldn't already know this. 70.89.176.249 (talk) 02:04, 4 October 2018 (UTC)

None of the links you provided actually states that the terms "wire puzzle" and "nail puzzle" are used interchangeably. While we may be able to do so exercising our own judgment, to do so would be original research. In order to add the information you'd like to add we need a source that explicitly links the two terms...no pun intended. If you disagree with my assessment you'll welcome to raise the matter at the article's Talk page. DonIago (talk) 03:15, 4 October 2018 (UTC)
