Proposed deletion of Annett Renneberg[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Annett Renneberg has been proposed for deletion because it appears to have no references. Under Wikipedia policy, this biography of a living person will be deleted after seven days unless it has at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp/dated}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within seven days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one.

Filmography[edit]

Regarding the word "filmography", it appears that all dictionaries define this as a list of films. Is it really appropriate for us to use for TV and stage credits? Could we simply not do "Credits" instead? Or something similarly all-encompassing? Erik (talk | contrib) (ping me) 23:37, 22 February 2019 (UTC)

If the term "filmography" isn't as encompassing as its widespread use in this site suggests, then I'm open to other ideas, though it would involve lots of page changes. SNUGGUMS (talk / edits) 23:46, 22 February 2019 (UTC)
Filmography should not include 'Stage' roles (that's considered to be an entirely different "medium"). How it's used on Wikipedia, Filmography can/should encompass Film and Television, and related "media" like video games and music videos; it can also plausibly include Radio, though that may be controversial. Like Snuggums, I have never seen a problem with its usage as a term, and replacing it would be alot of work. But if somebody can come up with a better word that would encompasses Film & Television, etc., I'm open to the idea. But I don't like 'Credits' as I agree with the idea that Stage roles should be kept separate from the others... --IJBall (contribstalk) 23:55, 22 February 2019 (UTC)
There are things like this Rod Steiger on screen and stage. I know it is its own list article but something like it could be adapted for the 'pedia's articles. As to the editing involved to change the current usage there is such a mishmash of styles and tables on the hundreds of thousands of actor articles that I doubt there will ever be a complete uniformity site wide. I say whatever we wind up choosing just put it in WP:MOSFILM for new articles and replace the word in older articles as you come across them. MarnetteD|Talk 00:12, 23 February 2019 (UTC)
It did not occur to me until now, but IMDb uses "Filmography" to be all-encompassing, and we probably follow suit from that. I had only checked dictionaries before and could not find "filmography" to mean anything more than a list of films. (Of course, IMDb means Internet Movie Database...) I don't think "Credits" or some variation of it is problematic, and it seems more technically accurate than "Filmography" when the table has TV credits. It is a tall order to change everything, but perhaps at least accept variations per MOS:RETAIN? I feel like I can see an editor trying to replace a variation with "Filmography" and arguing that because "everything else" has that, this section should too.

Regarding separate pages for filmographies for some performers. Why is this a thing? While I can understand the some actors have very lengthy filmographies, the idea that a completely separate page is needed (and therefore another click) to see an actor's credits is laughable, and it creates inconsistencies amongst pages. I mean, do we seriously need a separate page for Seth Rogen's filmography? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.174.160.61 (talkcontribs)

A new newsletter directory is out![edit]

A new Newsletter directory has been created to replace the old, out-of-date one. If your WikiProject and its taskforces have newsletters (even inactive ones), or if you know of a missing newsletter (including from sister projects like WikiSpecies), please include it in the directory! The template can be a bit tricky, so if you need help, just post the newsletter on the template's talk page and someone will add it for you.

Daniella van Graas WP:AFD[edit]

Subject has appeared on many magazine covers and appeared in many mainstream movies and television. Finding WP:RSs is not easy. 7&6=thirteen () 17:36, 26 April 2019 (UTC)

Ellen Woodbury[edit]

This article only has 1 source but I found https://www.themarysue.com/history-of-women-in-animation-part-two/. It has a paragraph dedicated to Ellen. Would that make her notable? --Tyw7 (🗣️ Talk) — If (reply) then (ping me) 00:03, 27 April 2019 (UTC)

Native titles[edit]

Is there anything wrong with putting native titles beside the English titles of films and dramas in an artist's page, and should they be removed? Noticed most articles for Chinese actors are formatted that way. Example: Peng Yuchang.

Actor Claude Kirchner[edit]

I know there is a redlist for female actors, is there one for male actors? Claude Kirchner is mentioned in several wikipedia articles. Fred (talk) 16:37, 13 May 2019 (UTC)
