Hi Stephepps, good to see you are still out there. Looking for advice please. When I go to add a new death and want to write in the details in the top box, a drop down menu appears listing all the previous statements.This list is very long but I don't know how to remove the entries that won't be used again.. Can you advise ? Otherwise it'll be a never ending list !.
Hi there, my query relates to the Edit Summary where we are asked to give details of the edit. Each time I write something different it gets added to the drop list, so I would like to remove entries that won't be used again.
Thank you very much for creating the page for this actor. I have just tried to create a page for Paul Lukas but have the same result as I had with Stone, a blank page which I am unable to edit. Any thoughts ?
If you want to add a page for a TV series, be sure to include (20XX series) in the title and make sure to include the appropriate categories (and also use the DEFAULTSORT template, so that it's not listed in the categories under "The").
Also, when you list the actors, make sure to make them links.
Yes. I found out when I added 1924 births and checked it. Usually when you key in a name for a new page if it already exist it will red flag that it has already been done but in the case of O'Conner it didnt do that. From now on I will do a title search before adding a new page. THX.
Hello Stephepps, many thanks for your support for myself and Arbinoman, at least we are reading from the same page, the one that DeMan wrote all those years ago ! I hope that any other editor who copies over from the original sites will also now leave in not just the credits but also any of DeMan's comments -- there are still a couple of them who don't do so.
I gather that it presents problems with those who copy and paste from the old site with all the italicized info. It is a vast library to be transferred. I prefer to retype them and make any corrections to pages I know to be incorrect or short on info but it is a slow process. I have no problem with the fast paced editor bringing in as much as they can. The old site isn't going anywhere and people like you and I can add the tipster thank you's as we can. By the way, You're very welcome.
Hi Stephepps, I've added the tv death but all the bold type and italics are round the wrong way !
Perhaps you'd like to amend things. This death was sent to DeMan some time ago but unfortunately he never got to action it.
