Things you can do

Requesting re-assessment of articles[edit]

I've been working on improving some theatre articles that were previously marked as stub or start class articles. If someone can re-assess them, that would be great. (Also: is there a better process for requesting a new assessment than posting something here?)

Actors in plot summaries[edit]

FYI: Pointer to relevant discussion elsewhere.

Please see Wikipedia talk:Manual of Style/Film#Proposed MoS change: actors' names (not) in plot sections

Gist: MOS:FILM and MOS:TV are in conflict about whether to give actors' names in plot summaries.  — SMcCandlish ¢ 😼  01:59, 15 July 2018 (UTC)

Gaslight (play)[edit]

I've initiated a request to move the article about Patrick Hamilton's 1938 Victorian-era thriller from Gaslight (play), its most popular current title, to Gas Light (play), the title by which the play was copyrighted and originally performed. The article was moved from Gas Light only recently, after being created as Angel Street, one of the U.S. titles given to the play after its premiere in London. The article was moved to Gas Light (play) in 2006. In 2007 it was moved to simply Gas Light. I examined the documentation for Template:Infobox play, hoping that a method for displaying alternative titles was part of the mix, but I find it is not. Please consider visiting Talk:Gaslight (play)#Requested move 5 August 2018 and sharing your views on the best article title, and how best to handle the alternative titles (which also include Five Chelsea Lane). Thanks. — WFinch (talk) 02:01, 7 August 2018 (UTC)

Broadway World[edit]

Could someone consider creating an article on Broadway World (however you want to spell or style it)? It is cited in ~6,000 Wikipedia articles but we still don't have an article on it. I'm asking you guys because I think someone else would do a more effective job than me. Note: There apparently was an article at one point, which got AfDed in 2008 [1], but I think things have changed enough that a carefully constructed and cited article would stand.
