WP:Missing WikipediansEdit

Hello Loeba. I've added your name to the list linked above due to inactivity. Please remember to remove yourself from the page if you return to Wikipedia. Take care, Snuggums (talk / edits) 05:37, 11 March 2017 (UTC)

@SNUGGUMS: Hi there. Well, I guess I have been "missing" (I think this is genuinely the first time I've logged in this year, heh) but I've come and gone constantly over the last few years. The page says "editors who have gradually adopted a pattern of occasional editing interspersed with long breaks should not be listed merely because they are on one of their breaks", which probably applies to me. I've never really felt a need to officially announce myself "retired" or "semi-retired" or whatever; I just let the message on my user page explain my status. I'm sure you were just keeping up with the bureaucracy but I don't really understand the point of that list to be honest :) Aaanyway, whatever, it doesn't really make a difference. I think I'm going to do a bit of editing again, life is a bit boring atm so it's summin' to do, but I've no idea how much or for how long...Cheers --Loeba (talk) 13:05, 20 July 2017 (UTC)
I see. In any case, nice to know you're still around to at least some extent. Snuggums (talk / edits) 13:28, 20 July 2017 (UTC)

Good to see you back in action! :)Edit

Hello there,

Great to see you back, if even for just a little while! :) And thanks for the edits on Chaps! I can't decide whether the Chaplin museum seems interesting or downright creepy, given all the wax figures! :D TrueHeartSusie3 (talk) 19:39, 21 July 2017 (UTC)TrueHeartSusie3

@TrueHeartSusie3: Hii old wiki friend! Yeah I'm up for doing some editing again, we'll see how long I last ;) The Chaplin museum does look a bit odd haha but it probably has some good stuff as well. It's a good excuse to visit the Swiss Alps anyway so I still hope to go one day. Hope you're well. --Loeba (talk) 19:59, 21 July 2017 (UTC)

ANI threadEdit

You might be interested in WP:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents#WP:IDHT behavior from Light show. Snuggums (talk / edits) 17:11, 14 August 2017 (UTC)

Thanks, replied. I think that's the first time I've ever commented at ANI; I prefer to stay out of such things but I've stepped up in this instance. --Loeba (talk) 17:52, 14 August 2017 (UTC)

Spencer Tracy articleEdit

You seem to have had a major role in the Tracy article. As such, don't you think the "Partial Filmography" list of movies should be deleted since Tracy has a separate Filmography. Only the link should remain. If you agree, please make the change. Eschoryii (talk) 00:05, 16 August 2017 (UTC)

@Eschoryii: Hi there. I don't think there's any problem including a selected list of titles when there's a main filmography article - I definitely prefer it to having an empty section with only a link - but yeah it's grown too long. Someone added the co-stars as well, which I'm not really a fan of but I never cared enough to remove them. I might cut it down later this week or feel free to go ahead. --Loeba (talk) 11:35, 17 August 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for the response. Eschoryii (talk) 00:40, 18 August 2017 (UTC)

Philip Seymour Hoffman categoriesEdit

Greetings. Just made this edit undoing your reversion of 26 Dec 2014. (Finding it again and linking to it are more work than I'm going to do now.) I'm curious about your reason for editing out properly referenced categories. Tapered (talk) 07:15, 20 September 2017 (UTC)

Hi @Tapered: please see here. Cheers. --Loeba (talk) 11:31, 20 September 2017 (UTC)
I mentally conflated ImDB and Wikipedia! I'll revert! Tapered (talk) 05:24, 21 September 2017 (UTC)

Lana TurnerEdit

Hi,

If you have time & feel like reviewing an article, take a look at Lana Turner. Drown Soda is looking to get it to FA status, but so far only two people have shown interest in reviewing.

Hope you're well! :) TrueHeartSusie3 (talk) 20:21, 19 June 2018 (UTC)TrueHeartSusie3

Hi Susie, yeah I'm pretty good thanks, hope you are too :) I haven't done any reviewing in a long long time, so I'm going to pass, but I wish him/her luck! --Loeba (talk) 18:41, 24 June 2018 (UTC)
