A few notes about this article:
- When you have a sentence like the first one in this article, something in the form "John Doe is an American writer who received the Pulitzer Prize", that sentence needs to be split in two. The example sentence I just used would be, "John Doe is an American writer. He received the Pulitzer Prize." This is part of simplifying.
- Please use "movie" instead of "film".
- When you start a new paragraph, please start it with the person's name instead of "he" or "she".
- Please leave two blank lines before a stub template.
- When writing about American topics, please use the American date format. For example, say "March 2, 1914" instead of "2 March 1914". Also use the same date format in the whole article: this article had one format in the text and another in the infobox.
Hi, Angela. A couple of things about this article.
- What does it mean where is says the song was "accepted" by critics?
- Please add some references to the article. The best thing to have a reference for is where it says the song reached #1 on the UK chart -- that's the main thing that shows notability of this song.
- When you use the term "single" in a music-related article, please link it as I have done in this article. In this meaning, "single" is not simple because it is jargon.
Please include references[change source]
Hi, Angela. I saw that two articles you recently created, Chop suey and Hot chicken, do not have references. Please add some references. They also do not have attribution. If you based them on the enwiki articles (which it looks like you did), please add attribution. By the way, I also did some simplifying on them, so please look at what I did so you can see what wasn't simple. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 06:23, 10 October 2015 (UTC)
Some notes about this article:
- Please try to make categories as specific as possible. When someone is from a major city like Cleveland, there is probably a category for people from that city. In this case, there were two relevant Cleveland categories to use.
- The first time you mention a person's name in an article, you use their whole name or the name by which they are best known. After that, you use just their surname. (The exception to this is people like Madonna or Cher who are best known by just a given name.) See en:MOS:SURNAME for more info on this.
- Your text said that Dandridge "starred in the 1940 movie Irene alongside Billie Burke". Dandridge did not star in that movie: her role was small and uncredited. (In fact, most of her film roles were uncredited.) When you say someone "stars" in a movie, it means they have one of the main roles in it. When the person has a lesser role, you can say that they "acted", "appeared", or "were" in it.
