Stranger Things season 3Edit

I noticed you reverted my edit citing word count. This is the first I'm hearing about a word count limit, so this question is out of ignorance - is the word count limit for an individual episode, or for the entire page? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hypnometal (talkcontribs)

It's per episode on a list like this, 200 words. See MOS:TV. --Masem (t) 14:47, 4 August 2019 (UTC)

Using caps in titlesEdit

I'm very interested in your views on CAPS. There is a discussion Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Ships#Motor Torpedo Boat PT-109 and other such boats here on the very subject of using caps in the title of a work. It's talking about Motor Torpedo Boat PT-109, and later an Air Lock Diving-Bell Plant. I've put this here rather than at the pump, to retain some focus there.

File:Tennessee Colleges of Applied Technology Logo.pngEdit

Hi Masem. Would you mind taking a look at the non-free use of this particular file. It's currently being used in five articles: Tennessee College of Applied Technology - Shelbyville, Tennessee College of Applied Technology - Pulaski, Tennessee College of Applied Technology - Crump, Tennessee College of Applied Technology - Chattanooga and Tennessee College of Applied Technology - Newbern. It has a rationale for one of these uses and sort-of-quasi rationales for the other four. Normally, I think a logo such as this would be OK if used in a parent article like Tennessee College of Applied Technology, but not really OK for use in individual articles about child entities (i.e. individual campuses) per WP:NFC#UUI17; however, as you can see, the file isn't being used in the "parent" article, which is pretty much just a list article without any real content. Looking at the official websites of each campus (except the one website which seems to no longer exist), the logo can be seen being used with the campus name being added like shown here. Techincially, I guess those would be considered child-entity specific logos, but they are essentially the same logo with just a different campus name, which means WP:NFCC#3 might come into play. So, bascially it seems to be a question of using one non-free file six times or six non-free files one time each. Do you think the current usage is OK per WP:NFCCP? Any suggestions on what should be down if not? Upload the individual logos and move the file to the parent article? -- Marchjuly (talk) 05:34, 15 August 2019 (UTC)

If the logo were non-free, yes, the usage is wrong - the single use on the parent article would be only appropriate. But I want to say this may be PD-textlogo (the logo is relatively simple) so this could be a free image. --Masem (t) 05:39, 15 August 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for the speedy response. Yes, it might be possible for this to be PD-logo per c:COM:TOO United States. If the parent logo is PD though, then the individual child articles should also be PD for the same reason, right? Now, for the sake of discussion, let's assume that the file needs to be non-free. You seem to be suggesting that it should be only used in the parent article. Would it then be acceptable in your opinion to upload the individual child logos as non-free for use in the individual child entity articles? It seems that the number of non-free uses would be the same regardless of whether one file is used six times or six files are used one time each, but obviously six files means more non-free files being hosted. The copyrightable elements of the logo would be the same so basically it would be like uploading the same file six times. -- Marchjuly (talk) 06:01, 15 August 2019 (UTC)
If the child entities are just adding their location to the existing NFC logo as simple text under the logo, then I would still think that you'd only need the parent logo, and none of the child ones. If somehow the name was integrated into the parent logo in a more artistic way, that would be different. --Masem (t) 14:00, 15 August 2019 (UTC)

How dare you accuse me of "disruption"!Edit

I made a comment, not an edit. I didn't "disrupt" anything except your fragile ego and your obstinate refusal to admit that "impacts" is a crap word that should be discouraged here. There are many appropriate, accurate and grammatically correct alternatives to this neologism, some of which I listed in my comment. You'll probably delete this comment, but you won't prevent me from replacing "impacts" wherever I see it. Autodidact1 (talk) 02:25, 18 August 2019 (UTC)
