Transwiki mergeEdit

I have merged into this article the material transwikied from Big Brother (UK) Quotes through Transwiki:Big Brother (UK) quotes by Coredesat, per w:Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Big Brother (UK) Quotes. Here is the edit history of the WP article according to Coredesat. (I have added WP links to the usernames for convenience and tweaked the formatting.)

Note that the timezone of the dates is not identified, so the times may be off by as much as a day from expectations.

I would note that the material from WP was almost exactly the same as that already existing in the Wikiquote article. The only differences were:

  • One added line from "Big Brother 5".
  • All added lines from "Big Brother 7".
  • Seven of the first 8 lines added from "Big Brother 8".

The timing, the closely matched content, and the identical non-Wikiquote styles suggest that the same editors were involved in creating and editing both articles. Very little (if any) of this material strikes me as worth keeping, but I wanted to produce a current example of a fully transwikied article. ~ Jeff Q (talk) 11:11, 10 August 2007 (UTC)

That's sort of my fault, the relevant AfD involved quite a few arguments for transwikiing the contents here. I don't handle transwikis very often, so I'll have to check and make sure content isn't already here before carrying out the next transwiki, whatever that might be. --Coredesat 19:14, 10 August 2007 (UTC)
I'm sorry, Coredesat. I didn't mean to criticize your effort. You did exactly what I would have done — executed the decision according to policy. In fact, the reason I completed this so quickly is because I appreciated the textbook example of a transwiki. It's not our fault the material itself probably isn't worth saving, but at least it's here now so that Wikiquotians can make that determination. Now, if we can only get other Wikipedians to do these transwikis correctly… ~ Jeff Q (talk) 19:43, 10 August 2007 (UTC)
