Manganese, MinnesotaEdit

Hi Jonesey. I know you're on a break, but when you have time, care to do a copy edit of Manganese, Minnesota? You were one of the copy editors for Elcor, Minnesota a few years ago, and helped bring it to feature article status. After you have a peak, I'm planning on submitting it for peer review. Stay well during these interesting times! DrGregMN (talk) 20:55, 1 April 2020 (UTC)

Done. It needs a sentence or two early in the article explaining why the town was created in the first place. It becomes obvious after a while, but it should be mentioned sooner. – Jonesey95 (talk) 14:42, 2 April 2020 (UTC)
Thanks, Jonesey! You have a gift. I really love having you copy edit my prose. DrGregMN (talk) 21:53, 2 April 2020 (UTC)
That's nice of you to say. As I recently told a friend of mine whose novel I copy-edited, it's actually a curse rather than a gift. It makes it hard to read just about anything, because the grammar and usage errors pop out at me! I typically find a copy-editing error every 10 to 50 pages in popular mass market fiction books that have gone through multiple printings. – Jonesey95 (talk) 23:51, 2 April 2020 (UTC)
Hi Jonesey. Manganese, Minnesota has been through peer review and I put it up for GA nomination. The article has been expanded with additional text since you last looked at it. Could I ask you for another peek? Thanks in advance! DrGregMN (talk) 05:08, 3 July 2020 (UTC)
DrGregMN: Done. It was my pleasure. – Jonesey95 (talk) 15:38, 5 July 2020 (UTC)
Hello, Jonesey95. Could I please ask that you add this page to your watch list? I have made many revisions at the request of peer review as I have submitted this article for GA nomination. However, I will not be submitting it for FA consideration until the Minnesota Historical Society reopens after the COVID-19 pandemic since it will still need specific page citations from historical news articles. Regards, DrGregMN (talk) 02:07, 19 July 2020 (UTC)
  Done. – Jonesey95 (talk) 04:50, 19 July 2020 (UTC)
Requesting another copy edit! Regards, DrGregMN (talk) 02:11, 8 August 2020 (UTC)
I have had the page on my watchlist, and I haven't seen anything I objected to. I think I dropped in for an edit or two. If reviewers have specific problems with the copy, ping me from the review page and I will take a look. – Jonesey95 (talk) 03:38, 8 August 2020 (UTC)
OK, I couldn't resist. I gave it a quick copy editing pass. – Jonesey95 (talk) 14:08, 9 August 2020 (UTC)
Page has been through GA review. I have addressed the reviewers criticisms and am awaiting a final determination. Please feel free to check prose. There are other references I wish to add before submitting for FAC, but need to wait until they can be sourced (the Minnesota Historical Society is still closed due to the COVID pandemic). Regards, DrGregMN (talk) 02:25, 16 September 2020 (UTC)

Saint Croix Parish, New Brunswick.Edit

Hi there.

I'm curious. Is there a policy reason why you changed italics to blockquote in the article? And was that the only change you made?

I was using italics so that any editorial comments would be easier to see. I'm not saying what you did was wrong, just a little harder to follow. G. Timothy Walton (talk) 18:46, 1 August 2020 (UTC)

G. Timothy Walton, see WP:MOS#Quotations in italics and probably surrounding material. --Izno (talk) 22:00, 1 August 2020 (UTC)
Thanks. Simple and easy to understand. G. Timothy Walton (talk) 00:51, 2 August 2020 (UTC)

July 2020 GOCE drive blingEdit

  The Modest Barnstar
This barnstar is awarded to Jonesey95 for copy edits totaling over 4,000 words (including bonus and rollover words) during the GOCE July 2020 Backlog Elimination Drive. Congratulations, and thank you for your contributions! Tdslk (talk) 18:13, 9 August 2020 (UTC)


Hi Jonesey, you answered a question about maximum page sizes for me here, at VPT. The list is now on two pages. I've doubled one of those lists at my Sandbox/9 (linked above). Can you tell how close that page is to going over any of the limits? - Dank (push to talk) 15:40, 13 August 2020 (UTC)

Yes, and you can too. Use your web browser's View Source feature, then you can see the page statistics in an HTML comment near the bottom of the source. – Jonesey95 (talk) 17:22, 13 August 2020 (UTC)
I'm sorry, I don't follow, I'll ask at VPT. - Dank (push to talk) 17:39, 13 August 2020 (UTC)
If you're looking at the page in Firefox, for example, go to Tools - Web Developer - Page Source, or press Ctrl-U or Command-U. That will show you a new tab with the HTML code that renders the page. Scroll down almost to the bottom to see a commented section that resembles in the one in the VPT section linked above. – Jonesey95 (talk) 18:21, 13 August 2020 (UTC)
Thanks, that works. - Dank (push to talk) 18:25, 13 August 2020 (UTC)

Template : Brighton Main LineEdit

I note you recently tidied up the kink in the middle section of this template where Jolly Sailor station is shown. However, where there is supposed to be an icon showing "closed station" on the template, there is the icon for a stub line. Can you please correct this.

Xenophon Philosopher (talk) 04:15, 14 August 2020 (UTC)

I don't actually know how to use the intricate and arcane formatting at the rail map templates like {{Brighton Main Line}}. I just fix broken syntax. Maybe one of my talk page stalkers would be willing to take a look at it. – Jonesey95 (talk) 04:25, 14 August 2020 (UTC)

Template:Marriage code reviewEdit

Hi Jonesey. Can you please review this code and confirm whether it's safe for inclusion in the live template? I've tested the code several times on various article previews, and I haven't found any issues. Much appreciated, ‑‑Neveselbert (talk · contribs · email) 20:49, 18 August 2020 (UTC)

  • It's just that I've got time ATM and I'd really like to track/reformat these transclusions. I've done more troubleshooting with the latest code and everything seems to work smoothly. ‑‑Neveselbert (talk · contribs · email) 01:27, 19 August 2020 (UTC)
  • Again, none of these changes will be visible to readers, so there'll be no disruption. ‑‑Neveselbert (talk · contribs · email) 01:29, 19 August 2020 (UTC)
  • Would it not be OK in the meantime if I just included the code to track cases in a separate subcategory, namely Category:Marriage template anomalies? ‑‑Neveselbert (talk · contribs · email) 21:24, 19 August 2020 (UTC)
One discussion in one place, please, per WP:TALKFORK. I am watching the talk page. – Jonesey95 (talk) 21:54, 19 August 2020 (UTC)

A barnstar for you!Edit

  The Copyeditor's Barnstar
Thanks for the copy edit on Thomas Johnston (engraver) and pointing out the various issues. I addressed all those issues and was able to improve the article because of them. I did additional research and found more references. Doug Coldwell (talk) 20:01, 21 August 2020 (UTC)
It was my pleasure. I think the article's prose is still a bit stilted, but I believe that I improved it quite a bit. We'll see what the reviewers say. Feel free to ping me from the review page if there are prose issues that need addressing. – Jonesey95 (talk) 23:41, 21 August 2020 (UTC)
Thanks.--Doug Coldwell (talk) 12:52, 22 August 2020 (UTC)

Can't say I "broke" formattingEdit

Can't say I "broke" formatting. in fact, for some reason, "whataboutism" features 2-3 claims to different people in one paragraph and I only partially separated it into "one claim at a time" style because it's big. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Uchyotka (talkcontribs) 14:54, 25 August 2020 (UTC)

This version of Whataboutism had nine misnested tag errors and a lot of misapplied bold formatting. Also, we don't use bullets like that. We use prose in article sections. See MOS:LISTBULLET and MOS:BOLD, for starters. Try making smaller edits and using the Preview feature to ensure that you are getting the results that you want. – Jonesey95 (talk) 15:07, 25 August 2020 (UTC)

Block Quotes in the Island House, Laugharne articleEdit

Hi, Thank you for your edits on the above, the consistently excellent quality of debate on this topic and many others continues to astonish me as a novice contributor. As such I bring with me prejudices and habits about written communication acquired over a lifetime but essentially they rely for their influence on the imprint of my school days. Any departure from the principles nailed into my brain during my grammar lessons so many decades ago, causes me distress. Sadly the Wiki guidance on presenting block quotations without quotation marks is one such painful experience. I do understand the need for a community approach to punctuation rules but sadly the complete abandonment of quotation marks is a bridge too far for me. I have now removed the second quotation from Stopp and rewritten the section but the earlier Mary Curtis edit has me impaled on the horns of an intractable dilemma. Its preceding sentence was (rather poorly) constructed to rely on an inline quotation for its sense and detaching that quotation in indented block form simply empties the passage of the intended meaning. With great trepidation I've rewritten it and restored the original format in the hope you will allow me this editorial discretion on the grounds that the quote isn't really that long. Maybe I can be permitted to follow the '6-8 line/ 100 word' direction from CMOS as cited in Block Quotation   Your forebearance and indulgence in this matter would be very gratefully received. Horatius At The Bridge (talk) 19:52, 2 September 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for the note, and welcome to Wikipedia. We have our own Manual of Style (MOS) here that may take some getting used to. It looks like you have undone some of the fixes that I put into the article (removing spaces before the sfn templates, for example) to help the article comply better with MOS. Useful sections of the MOS that I have just applied, or reapplied, to the article include MOS:DASH, MOS:REFPUNCT, MOS:DATERANGE, WP:MOS#Circa, MOS:INITIALS, MOS:ITALQUOTE, and MOS:DOUBLE. I have also restored some {{full citation needed}} templates where there are short references (e.g. Curtis 1880) without matching full references. To see that they are missing, click on one and see that it does not take you to the full citation. Happy editing! – Jonesey95 (talk) 23:53, 2 September 2020 (UTC)
I'm much obliged and will attend to the necessary corrections. Your guidance is greatly appreciated. Horatius At The Bridge (talk) 10:14, 3 September 2020 (UTC)


Hi User:Jonesey95 could you revert User:Kaustubh42 disruptive edits in Bigg Boss (Hindi season 13) and User:Bbb23 please block him indefinitely he has been doing a lot of vandalism on the page since a long time and is a sock — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2A01:4C8:41:E6FF:5D7A:F068:C166:D6DD (talk) 10:20, 5 September 2020 (UTC)

dystopian literature removal of rose macaulay workEdit

Hello. why did you remove the segment on Rose Macaulays What not? it is an important piece of dystopia literature as it was possibly plagiarised by Aldous Huxley's Brave new world? Thanks — Preceding unsigned comment added by Memetimeradiohour (talkcontribs) 13:41, 5 September 2020 (UTC)

The lead paragraph of List of dystopian literature explains that This is a list of notable works of dystopian literature. Each listed work should have its own WP article before being listed there. The same thing is explained in a hidden comment at the start of each section. See WP:CSC, bullet 1. When this important work by Rose Macaulay has its own article, it will be welcome on the list. – Jonesey95 (talk) 13:49, 5 September 2020 (UTC)

Template talk:MarriageEdit

Can you kindly confirm whether you are able to see a difference between Special:PermaLink/971382795 and Special:PermaLink/977094151? Much appreciated, ‑‑Neveselbert (talk · contribs · email) 15:12, 7 September 2020 (UTC)

When you have a momentEdit

Hello J. The time period for this RFC Template talk:Infobox person#Home town field has expired. I wonder if you can proceed with removing the field from the 23 different infoboxes where it is used. If you would prefer that I post an edit request on the talk page for the infobox no worries just let me know. Also if you think that there should be separate RFC's on the other 22 infoboxes that is okay as well. Thanks for your time and best regards. MarnetteD|Talk 22:48, 7 September 2020 (UTC)

This situation is unclear to me. I do not see an RFC header or an RFC closure at that page. I do not see that the discussion was advertised at pages like Template talk:Infobox writer, which is not a wrapper for Infobox person, so I don't feel comfortable applying the results of a discussion at an unrelated template. I recommend setting this discussion up as a real RFC, advertising it on all of the pages that you want to affect, and getting a real consensus. – Jonesey95 (talk) 04:00, 8 September 2020 (UTC)
Hi again. I started the thread as a discussion. A couple responses mentioned running it as a full RFC so I did that on the Aug 7 though I initially put the box in the wrong place. The last response was on Aug 25th and then the RFC template was removed on Sept 6. As I read it the WP:CONSENSUS is clear but, perhaps I made such a hash at the start (as I mentioned in the edit summary hadn't started one in ages) that it needs to be rerun. I get what you are saying about the other pages and can handle those separately. Apologies for all the confusion. If you can give me an idea what to do next it will be appreciated. MarnetteD|Talk 04:34, 8 September 2020 (UTC)
I don't know enough about RFCs to help you. It looks like WP:RFCCLOSE offers tips on getting an RFC closed. – Jonesey95 (talk) 14:33, 8 September 2020 (UTC)

Shrinkage (fabric)Edit

Respected Sir,

Kindly have a look at the Copy editing on the subject page and here [[1]]. Please allow me to join you in basic copy editing. Thanks and regards RAJIVVASUDEV (talk) 13:12, 8 September 2020 (UTC)

You improved the article quite a bit, and added some errors ("relaxed, Dimensional"; "interlooping" was correct; "Fibers to fabric conversion imply" is wrong; "brand can lose its reputation" should not have been changed). Try reading the article aloud to find additional errors, including ones that you have introduced. – Jonesey95 (talk) 14:17, 8 September 2020 (UTC)
Thank you so much for your comments. Best regards RAJIVVASUDEV (talk) 14:56, 8 September 2020 (UTC)
Sir, I am sorry to bother you again, will appreciate your comments on the recent edits and the errors you pointed out.[[2]] Thanks and regards RAJIVVASUDEV (talk) 17:38, 9 September 2020 (UTC)
This is not grammatical: "Shrinkage (in fabric), aka dimensional stability, is the change of fabric dimensions when washed". Using "etc." is not recommended in normal prose, and you neglected to insert a space after the full stop after "etc". You are missing a full stop after the word "journey".
I did not look for errors past the first three sentences, in which I quickly found three errors. I recommend reverting your edits and letting someone else try improving the article. Unfortunately, I think that copy editing may not be your strength, and that you may want to look for a way to improve Wikipedia that does not involve modifying prose. – Jonesey95 (talk) 18:13, 9 September 2020 (UTC)
Sir, noted. Thanks and regards RAJIVVASUDEV (talk) 18:43, 9 September 2020 (UTC)

Ultimate Ninja Storm 4's proseEdit

I don't know if you are interested based on a recent edit but Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 is probably the biggest Naruto game article. While it's well sourced, the prose might need some revisions. I would ask for a copyedit but I already asked for both, Judgment (video game) and The King of Fighters XIV.

Community FilmEdit

Hi! Wanted to check in about this decline. I'm not actually questioning it, but wondered if you knew the history. The article (main space and current draft) appears to be some original research around the topic that they want to add to Wikipedia. Whether or not it's a G12, the material doesn't seem appropriate IMO. Disclosure, I was original AfD nom as well. Thanks and courtesy @Dan arndt:. StarM 17:48, 16 September 2020 (UTC)

I saw the AfD, and I looked at the history of the article and of the academia page. WP:BACKWARDSCOPY can be tricky to figure out, so the speedy nomination was understandable. If you think that the current page should be deleted from Wikipedia because it is original research, I think there is a process for that. – Jonesey95 (talk) 18:04, 16 September 2020 (UTC)
I think it will end up back at AfD if it's accepted into mainspace, but possible others will have different takes on it as you did here. StarM 18:59, 16 September 2020 (UTC)
I don't have a "take" on it. All I did was remove an inappropriately applied speedy deletion template. – Jonesey95 (talk) 19:44, 16 September 2020 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) I noticed the off-wiki page claims the text was copied from a 2010 blog post and posted without permission as a WP article in July 2011. I can't confirm the reliability of this claim and I've no intention of searching for the claimed original. Cheers, Baffle☿gab 20:10, 16 September 2020 (UTC)
Thanks @Baffle gab1978:. That seems to give some credence to the G12. It's a complicated mess that like you I'm not particularly interested in handling unless it goes into main space. StarM 01:17, 17 September 2020 (UTC)
I admit that I only undertook a cursory assessment - the copyvios report came out as 97.7% copied from external sources, namely Defining Film. I note that that source states "This text of this article was previously available on my community blog in 2010 and was subsequently posted as a Wikipedia article. (18 July 2011)". The question then arises is Filmpartscom the same as the source article's creator, Dr. I. D. McCormick, and as such is it actually original research? I guess I will leave that up to others to make that call. Dan arndt (talk) 02:21, 17 September 2020 (UTC)

FYI, I've dropped a permalink to this on the Talk so others who wander by see this history. Thanks all StarM 13:00, 17 September 2020 (UTC)

Image PRODsEdit

Apologies if I've been incorrectly tagging things, but at what point is something not functionally in use? One of the two images, for instance, is a logo created for a user's page, and said user has not been active for 10 years. Does it being put on a user page mean it stays around forever? It has no encyclopedic use anywhere else, and therefore shouldn't be moved to Commons. Is it just going to sit forever just because somebody decided almost 15 years ago that they wanted it there?

I'm not trying to be argumentative, I really just want to know the best way to handle it, because leaving them tagged to move to Commons forever isn't a solution. --fuzzy510 (talk) 01:37, 17 September 2020 (UTC)

I don't know much about File space, but I presume there is a way to tag files to say "this was tagged as a potential move to Commons, but it should stay here on en.WP". If not, a way to do that should be created. – Jonesey95 (talk) 13:57, 17 September 2020 (UTC)
Fuzzy510: I found it! {{Esoteric file}} is for files that are Wikipedia-specific. That is the template for a logo that exists on one user's page. – Jonesey95 (talk) 00:29, 19 September 2020 (UTC)

Draft:Steven UmbrelloEdit

Jonesey95, given your experience, and after reviewing your work, I would appreciate some help editing two bio pages that I made (Still new at this).


Do you think you can make some edits to polish these up or at least give me some feedback as to what I can do to make them better? EthicsScholar93 (talk) 14:39, 4 October 2020 (UTC)

Umbrello: The overall format is pretty good. Use the person's last name instead of his first name, per MOS:SURNAME. I haven't checked the sources in detail, but I can't tell if this person meets the general notability guidelines. If he does, the article should make that more clear.
Friedman: does not appear to meet WP:NACADEMIC or WP:GNG notability standards, so the article might be nominated for deletion. Format looks OK but could be tidied up: please see MOS:CURLY and MOS:SECTIONCAPS for guidance. – Jonesey95 (talk) 18:09, 4 October 2020 (UTC)
amazing, thank you so much for the feedback. The lighter edits I have made accoring to your suggestions. The more substantive stuff will take a bit of time to tidy up! EthicsScholar93 (talk) 19:03, 4 October 2020 (UTC)

Can you help with Template:NATO command structure?Edit

WRT Template:NATO command structure

Under JFC-NF Norfolk, Virginia, US

Can you help standardise it so the small Coat of Arms links to JFC-NF page? I'm not an expert with templates? Feel free to edit my File:Joint Force Command Norfolk badge.png file here. Or on wiki commons ? Thank You.

Another request for Template:NATO command structureEdit

Hi Jonesey95

Template:NATO command structure

Could you shift JFCNP Allied Joint Force Command Naples and Joint Force Command Norfolk under JFCBS Allied Joint Force Command Brunssum? This the the proper arrangement see JFCBS, JFCNP and JFC-NP are operational-level commands while AIRCOM, MARCOM and LANDCOM are tactical level commands. I don't want to mess up the chart. Thank you!!!

That is beyond my abilities. I suggest that you ask for help at Template talk:Tree chart. – Jonesey95 (talk) 13:36, 6 October 2020 (UTC)

Seoul School of Integrated Sciences and TechnologiesEdit

I am trying to create a new wiki page for our University ( This is my first time trying to work in Wikipedia and I am using this page as a model: Yet, every time I try to improve the page and address the problems, you delete everything. You don't even leave the photos, logo or school info. Why can't you just delete what you think is not appropriate instead of all the content? Can you give some advise about how to fix the content so that is appropriate and you stop deleting it? — Preceding unsigned comment added by ParosePhD (talkcontribs) 03:35, 7 October 2020 (UTC)

Please see WP:V, Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Layout, MOS:YOU, WP:NOTPROMO, and WP:COPYVIO. Those should provide some good advice for you. Content that is added needs to be sourced with references to reliable sources, formatted correctly (look at the wikicode for Cheung_Kong_Graduate_School_of_Business to see examples), and non-promotional. If the university is your employer, you also must read Wikipedia:Conflict of interest before making any edits to the university's page.

A barnstar for you!Edit

  The Barnstar of Diligence
Thank you (and Tdlsk) for giving out the leaderboard barnstars (and correcting my totals)! I've been updating my stats less so I wouldn't have to do it as often, but I'll do it a bit more frequently for the next drive.Tenryuu 🐲 ( 💬 • 📝 ) 06:43, 9 October 2020 (UTC)

RE:Custom signature fix neededEdit

Thanks for informing me. I've replaced my signature with the your fixed example. :) Teysz Kamieński (talk) 00:41, 14 October 2020 (UTC)

Teysz Kamieński, it looks great! – Jonesey95 (talk) 04:22, 14 October 2020 (UTC)
I just noticed it pasted the contents of my signature template onto your talk page. On the RuneScape Wiki (the independent one, not Fandom), we paste the template call onto talk/discussion pages and not the contents of it. And I was wondering which way is preferred on the English Wikipedia? Teysz Kamieński (talk) 21:37, 14 October 2020 (UTC)
Nevermind, it's seems 'SUBST:' is forced onto my signature regardless. Teysz Kamieński (talk) 21:42, 14 October 2020 (UTC)

Hi. Could you fix up the sources for beaver so the formatting is consistent? Thank you. LittleJerry (talk) 18:14, 17 October 2020 (UTC)

  Done. Probably not 100.00%, but pretty close. – Jonesey95 (talk) 15:30, 18 October 2020 (UTC)
Sorry, but now I need a copyedit of the whole article. I nominated it already but it still takes a while for someone to respond. LittleJerry (talk) 19:36, 20 October 2020 (UTC)

Thank youEdit

Thank you for your cleanup help on article Casey Calvert (actress). Much appreciated, Right cite (talk) 15:12, 18 October 2020 (UTC)

{{lead too short}} revertEdit


Just a ping to say I reverted the recent editprotected request you made to {{lead too short}}. Barely twelve hours of discussion (between only you and the requesting party, with no notifications elsewhere) is nowhere near enough to justify a significant reduction in the template's wording, and the requestee's further comments on talk are wildly out of line with the existing consensus on the template. Apologies for stepping on your toes. Chris Cunningham (user:thumperward) (talk) 02:05, 20 October 2020 (UTC)

Thumperward: Thanks for the note. My toes are fine; I don't take things personally on WP as long as editors engage in good faith. I disagree that the new wording, which you have reverted, represented a reduction in the template's message, since most of the reduction in word count came from removal of a redundant sentence. I think that the new wording actually added more words that explained the template's reason for existence more fully. In any event, let's not banter here; please propose new text that matches the name of the template on the template's talk page. I will be happy to engage there.
As for the requester's original suggestion and their other suggestions, you can see if you read that talk page that I disagreed with most of it, so you and I are probably more aligned than in opposition. – Jonesey95 (talk) 02:50, 20 October 2020 (UTC)
Yeah I think that too: I just didn't want to offend you. Cheers. Chris Cunningham (user:thumperward) (talk) 09:25, 20 October 2020 (UTC)

Union générale des israélites de FranceEdit

Hi @Jonesey95: The form for posting these types of tags is usually to wait until their has been no editing for a fews days or a week or so, not while they are away getting a cup of tea, dude. It just creates more work. I always references articles. I'm autopatrolled. So if you see me editing an article then you know it will be referenced, so please don't post these useless tags. scope_creepTalk 15:29, 20 October 2020 (UTC)

If the article had been in Draft space, I would not have tagged it. If you choose to create an article and put it in article space before it is fully cleaned up and referenced, you are essentially inviting any other editor to edit and tag it.
Any page in article space, i.e. in the live encyclopedia that the whole world can see and that is supposed to meet WP:V, with unreferenced sections or stray numbers littering the prose is unprofessional and should be tagged as such. And now I'm off for my own cup of tea; thanks for the idea. – Jonesey95 (talk) 16:02, 20 October 2020 (UTC)


Is there a way to encourage non Kannada users to give a say in the deletion discussion? The users stating keep are all Kannada users. Thank you.TamilMirchi (talk) 19:10, 21 October 2020 (UTC)

Post a neutral note at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Film/Indian cinema task force. A "neutral note" means something like "There is a deletion discussion about Hanumanthegowda at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Hanumanthegowda. Interested editors are encouraged to participate." A non-neutral note would be something like "Hey guys, can you please go over to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Hanumanthegowda and vote to keep the article?" – Jonesey95 (talk) 19:14, 21 October 2020 (UTC)


Thanks for letting me know. Done Removed Bloodlust Zombies for now. What do you think of the new article so far? Right cite (talk) 15:13, 23 October 2020 (UTC)

Thanks. Which new article? I keep getting distracted by all of your porn stars.... – Jonesey95 (talk) 15:52, 23 October 2020 (UTC)
Bloodlust Zombies. Right cite (talk) 15:58, 23 October 2020 (UTC)
I love that there is so much academic commentary on this B movie. Publish or perish (which also might be a good name for a zombie grad school comedy). – Jonesey95 (talk) 16:07, 23 October 2020 (UTC)
Great idea! Right cite (talk) 16:12, 23 October 2020 (UTC)
