D.Gray-man HallowEdit

I noticed you asked the move for D.Gray-man Hallow but what happened to the episode summaries. I added a bit of reception but I have no production information other than the actors Murase and Aoyama talking about Allen/Nea and Earl/Mana.Tintor2 (talk) 17:32, 25 August 2019 (UTC)

Fixed. The stupid way the module was created requires the actual page name to be added so when a page moves it needs to be updated. --Gonnym (talk) 18:30, 25 August 2019 (UTC)

List of Inazuma Eleven episodesEdit

Now that the RM has gone through, I'm of the opinion that List of Inazuma Eleven episodes should be moved to Inazuma Eleven (TV series)... Thoughts? --IJBall (contribstalk) 15:18, 30 August 2019 (UTC)

Bumping this – I'd like to hear your opinion on this before I do anything... Thanks! --IJBall (contribstalk) 12:40, 10 September 2019 (UTC)
If the page size isn't an issue then sure, why not. If it does move, it will need an infobox and probably a change of categories. --Gonnym (talk) 15:15, 10 September 2019 (UTC)
Cool. I'll try to look at that this weekend... --IJBall (contribstalk) 16:13, 10 September 2019 (UTC)

  Done! – However, Inazuma Eleven GO (TV season) is still misnamed, and I'm not sure what to do here: while Inazuma Eleven GO (TV series) would seem obvious, but the article only covers the first of three seasons, so Inazuma Eleven GO (season 1) might be correct. (Note: There is a redirect at Inazuma Eleven GO that should be turned into a WP:DABPAGE...) Anyway, let me know where you think Inazuma Eleven GO (TV season) should be moved to... --IJBall (contribstalk) 15:32, 14 September 2019 (UTC)

Breakfast Time (FX program) move to Breakfast Time (TV program) further moved to Breakfast Time (FX TV program)Edit


I notice that you moved the Breakfast Time (FX program) redirect to Breakfast Time (TV program).

I've moved this again since, whether or not the original redirect was in line with WP:NCTV (as used as justification for the change), it was clear and unambiguous. The new version- "Breakfast Time (TV program)"- could unfortunately have referred to either the FX or BBC programmes, so was less effective for its intended purpose.

(Although by convention articles for UK subjects use "Commonwealth" spelling and those for US ones use American spelling (i.e. "programme" vs. "program"), this doesn't change the fact that both are programs- or programmes. If I remember correctly spelling differences et al should not be relied upon as qualifiers.

The new version is Breakfast Time (FX TV program) which should be in line with NCTV but serves the original purpose. ("1990s TV program" would also have uniquely identified it, but less clearly so- late 80s are too close to the early 90s- and would likely have required a "redirects" dab in the middle of the article that would be more distracting).

If you have any problems or disputes with this, please let me know. Thanks,

If there are two shows with the same name, and they differ by country, then by country disambiguation is what is used per NCTV. So (American TV program) is the correct use. Note that by network disambiguation is not supported at all. --Gonnym (talk) 10:56, 9 September 2019 (UTC)
Yes, I've re-read NCTV and it appears that you're correct as far as that goes.
In hindsight, I'd say that "American TV program" is probably a better/clearer qualifier than "FX TV program" anyway, even if that weren't part of the guidelines anyway. So I've no problem with changing it to that (again!)
However, it's only fair to point out this it wasn't your first choice either(!) "TV program" was- and is- less clear and more ambiguous than the original "FX program" it replaced (or "FX TV program", for that matter), regardless of whether the former was in line with NCTV and the latter wasn't.
Adhering to NCTV alone- as "(TV program") does- doesn't mean a title is sufficiently unambiguous, or even that it's the best choice. It's necessary (if possible), but not sufficient, nor even the most important aspect.
Anyway, it's not like we're being forced to choose, so "American TV program" it is.
All the best,

Category:Supergirl (TV series) character redirects to listsEdit

I believe the box containing "The pages in this category are redirects from Supergirl fictional characters. To add a redirect to this category, place {{Arrowverse character redirect|series_name=Supergirl (TV series)}} on the second new line (skip a line) after #REDIRECT [[Target page name]]." should be updated, you agree? Because now the template is {{Arrowverse character redirect|supergirl=y}}. --Kailash29792 (talk) 05:13, 9 September 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know. Should be fixed. I've tested and didn't see any errors, but if you encounter any, let me know. --Gonnym (talk) 10:49, 9 September 2019 (UTC)


Re: Der Club - I am not familiar with television, but if infobox television has no room to say its a weekly talk show, nor for some people, it may be "correct" but not helpful, imho. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 16:14, 10 September 2019 (UTC)

It has a lot of parameters, you should check the documentation. If something is missing, you should ask on the template talk page to see if there is a reason why it's not added, or if there is consensus to add it. --Gonnym (talk) 16:35, 10 September 2019 (UTC)
If you know that much I wonder why you didn't but will try to learn. - I use infobox person for all people, but next thing may be you telling me that it not "correct"? --Gerda Arendt (talk) 16:38, 10 September 2019 (UTC)
I looked: many parameters, no example of a recurring talk show, nor of a simple example, - not user-friendly, that template. Compare {{infobox musical composition}}. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 16:43, 10 September 2019 (UTC)
I'm not sure what you really want from me here. The doc page lists all the parameters available to use, explains each one and gives an example of a working version. If the parameter you are looking for isn't there, then that isn't because it's missing documentation, it's because it doesn't exist. --Gonnym (talk) 16:53, 10 September 2019 (UTC)
I tried now. It results in the first airing put under a header "Original release" which sounds strange (to me, but again all this is new to me, I'm a classical music person trying every now and than to fill a red link ...), and has an awkward format for a website, to name just what I dislike most besides all these coloured headers. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 17:04, 10 September 2019 (UTC)
I couldn't find "former name", nor a parameter the alternate formats Medien and Literatur. Help? --Gerda Arendt (talk) 17:05, 10 September 2019 (UTC)
There is a |show_name2= which is close, but not a former name. I agree that a former name could be useful. Not sure what the Medien and and Literatur are. If these are just themes the show talks about then that doesn't belong in the infobox. If they are spin-off shows then they should go in |related=. --Gonnym (talk) 17:11, 10 September 2019 (UTC)
Per the article, occasionally (one of about four) the Club is a Literaturclub (with different people and language), and on other occasions a Medienclub. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 17:28, 10 September 2019 (UTC)
Sounds like it's just a "special" episode and not a different show. If that is the case, then the prose should handle it imo. --Gonnym (talk) 17:34, 10 September 2019 (UTC)
Will see what I can do. - I claned up after your move. Some things don't take redirects, and DYK noms are among them. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 18:23, 10 September 2019 (UTC)

Ape Escape (2002 TV series)Edit

As per Talk:Ape Escape (American TV series)#Requested move 11 August 2019, would you object to moving this to Ape Escape (Japanese TV series)? I would say the RM discussion was inconclusive on my point on this, and I think any confusion can be dealt with by a hatnote. But having just a two-article "mixed county/date" disambiguation set like this doesn't make much sense to me – either both should be "by country", or both should be "by year". FWIW... --IJBall (contribstalk) 16:17, 10 September 2019 (UTC)

Sure. --Gonnym (talk) 16:54, 10 September 2019 (UTC)

  Done! --IJBall (contribstalk) 15:32, 14 September 2019 (UTC)
