Your collectionEdit

That's quite a collection of DVD and Blu-rays you have, mate! Do you, per chance, have the ancient DVD copy of Species? I was thinking of using its 8-page booklet as a source in that article, as I have decided to bring it first to the A-class quality and then FA. Regards, Slightlymad 07:22, 21 January 2018 (UTC)

@Slightlymad: I'm afraid I don't. That being said, I'd be willing to purchase that eBay copy there for the sake of my collection and for the quality of the film's article, but it'd probably be in early February when it arrives to my home. If you'd prefer to buy it instead, then let me know. Cheers! –Matthew - (talk) 20:12, 21 January 2018 (UTC)
Nah, you carry on and buy it; I don't live in the US, nor is eBay a thing where I come from anyway. Please email me a copy of the booklet when you get your hands on it. Thanks, Slightlymad 01:54, 22 January 2018 (UTC)
Will do! –Matthew - (talk) 10:44, 22 January 2018 (UTC)

@Slightlymad: The DVD came in the mail today! I scanned the pages of the booklet and present them to you below:

Good luck with bringing it to FA status, and cheers! –Matthew - (talk) 20:21, 2 February 2018 (UTC)

Inappropriate referencesEdit

Hello, I'm seeing that you're adding (and revert-warring to re-add) material to list of cryptids. Cryptozoology is a pseudoscience, which means it falls within Wikipedia's many pseudoscience guidelines (WP:PSEUDOSCIENCE). However, much of the material you're adding makes no mention of the pseudoscience whatsoever, which means it falls in violation of WP:SYNTH. You're welcome to contribute to the article, but your additions need to fall within Wikipedia guidelines and policies for them to remain. :bloodofox: (talk) 21:42, 7 August 2018 (UTC)

Milicent PatrickEdit

Hey -- I have a copy of The Lady from the Black Lagoon, the new biography on Milicent Patrick. What do you think you'll need to cite from it in order to fix the article? Let me know, and I'll see how I can help. :-) Stolengood (talk) 05:43, 28 March 2019 (UTC)

@Stolengood: I appreciate your willingness to help! It's kind of hard to tell what I'd specifically like to cite since I don't actually have the book, but I'm sure that there must be information in the book that can be used to expand the content of the article. I assume that the book includes extensive information on her experiences with Creature from the Black Lagoon and on how she was denied credit for her design work, so that could be added, and if the book includes information about her early life and childhood, personal and romantic relationships, and post-Creature career, that would be worth adding too. –Matthew - (talk) 16:55, 28 March 2019 (UTC)
@MatthewHoobin: -- I'll have to dive deep to be sure of page numbers for cites, but Milicent Patrick grew up in, of all places, Hearst Castle. Her father, Camille Rossi, was the structural engineer in building large parts of the estate, so his whole family lived on the property for as long as he was employed. After he was fired, they moved to Glendale, and from there Milicent Patrick started her professional career. :-) Stolengood (talk) 00:26, 29 March 2019 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of File:Over the Garden Wall (miniseries) vinyl soundtrack cover.pngEdit

 

The file File:Over the Garden Wall (miniseries) vinyl soundtrack cover.png has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Non-free album cover being used in a decorative manner in Over the Garden Wall (miniseries)#Music. Non-free album cover art is generally allowed to be used for primary identification purposes in stand-alone articles about albums, but its use in other articles is generally only allowed when the cover art itself is the subject of sourced critical commentary as explained in WP:NFC#cite_note-3 and the context for non-free use required by WP:NFCC#8 is evident. There is no such commentary for this particular album cover anywhere in the article, and the use of soundtrack album cover art in articles about films or TV programs is generally not allowed for this reason as explained in WP:FILMSCORE.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated files}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the file's talk page.

Please consider addressing the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated files}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and files for discussion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. -- Marchjuly (talk) 06:57, 19 July 2019 (UTC)

SapehEdit

In June 2016 you added a "Cleanup-reorganise" tag to the article Sapeh. Looking at the article, I don't know what to do differently. It resembles a million other musical instrument article stubs. I am removing the tag and alerting you. If you can give me some idea of a different organization, I will do it for the article. Cheers, Jacqke (talk) 11:14, 25 July 2019 (UTC)

@Jacqke: Ah, do forgive me; I'm more knowledgeable with Wikipedia now compared to three years ago. I think it must've been the placement of the images that bothered me. I've placed them into their own Image gallery section. Thank you for reaching out! –Matthew - (talk) 12:56, 25 July 2019 (UTC)
Thank you. I ·appreciate your taking a look. I'm working through some the old instrument articles. Jacqke (talk) 14:39, 25 July 2019 (UTC)

King of the MonstersEdit

Please keep in mind that when you move pages like King of the Monsters, it leaves behind a whole load of incoming links to be dealt with. Thanks, Leschnei (talk) 13:17, 25 July 2019 (UTC)

@Leschnei: Thank you for reminding me! I've fixed several links which are now no longer listed on the page for what links to "King of the Monsters". It looks like everything else that links to King of the Monsters (the disambiguation page) is either supposed to link there, or is linked from old bot reports or user talk page discussions from years ago. Since the latter categories were active before the page move, do you know if those should be updated to reflect the change? –Matthew - (talk) 13:38, 25 July 2019 (UTC)
I don't think that we have to worry about bot reports or talk pages. There were 15-20 items in the 'what links to King of the Monsters' list a while ago. I changed them all to King of the Monsters (video game) or King of the Monsters 2; hopefully I got it right. Leschnei (talk) 13:44, 25 July 2019 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of XavlegbmaofffassssitimiwoamndutroabcwapwaeiippohfffXEdit

 

The article XavlegbmaofffassssitimiwoamndutroabcwapwaeiippohfffX has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Fails WP:NBAND and WP:TOOSOON. Absolutely nothing on this page is a reliable source except for some minor coverage by MetalSucks, and even then the coverage isn't even for the band's music. Just a stupid band that got some minor Internet attention for having a stupid name

Adding B-side in Beatles' singles chronologiesEdit

Hi. Are you sure B-sides should be included in the infoboxes? I think we only normally include the A-side in the chronology (unless the article is about the song that was the B-side, of course) – at least that's the impression I've long had. Can you provide a link to a guideline that supports your additions? Thanks, JG66 (talk) 13:47, 5 September 2019 (UTC)

@JG66: According to Template:Infobox song, B-sides can be added in instances of double-A-side singles, although it's unclear to me if such things are allowed for non-double-A-side singles. My edits may well have been against guidelines, but I'm not sure. If they are indeed against guidelines, then I may start a wider discussion about whether or not this should be changed. A B-side of a single is still a single, isn't it? I will refrain from further edits until we figure this out. What do you think? –Matthew - (talk) 13:58, 5 September 2019 (UTC)
I'd say that first example at Infobox song says it all: "Other Side" doesn't appear in the chronology, and nor is there a B-side (or other side) given for the other entries in the chronology. Feel free to start a discussion on this, of course. My feeling is it's wrong, from experience; also, it leads to no end of potential problems with the chronologies if B-side's different in various markets. JG66 (talk) 14:09, 5 September 2019 (UTC)
Fair point; thank you for putting it that way. I've reverted my edits to the Beatles articles. What about something like "Bullet" by the Misfits? That single features two songs on the A-side ("Bullet" and "We Are 138") and two songs on the B-side ("Attitude" and "Hollywood Babylon"). Should "Bullet" be listed in the chronology in its infobox as "Bullet", or as "'Bullet' / 'We Are 138'"? Similarly, should "Attitude" be listed in its infobox chronology as "'Attitude' / 'Hollywood Babylon'"? –Matthew - (talk) 14:17, 5 September 2019 (UTC)
Wow, that Misfits example is a weird one. To my way of thinking, it's an EP not a single, and the opening sentences at "Bullet" seem to be confused over that issue anyway. Definitely something to raise at WP Songs or Music, I'd say – I wouldn't have a clue how to deal with those examples (but then I should add that I'm really anti including singles chronologies anyway, eg this discussion). Hey, thanks for undoing those changes at the Beatles song articles. JG66 (talk) 14:46, 5 September 2019 (UTC)
