Yes, you have to log in to read the messages now, and you can no longer reply or post messages. I may have excepted the Fan Fiction forum from these restrictions... Can't remember... :eyeroll:

OK thanks for the info! In that case I'll remove the link to the old forum from the wikipedia pages tonight...

Bee,

While you're at it (removing link from Wikipedia pages) could you possibly fix the last line in the first para under Television and Film? Someone has added a bit about Sista Kontraktet but it needs help. The Last Contract is listed in a paragraph further along but perhaps that reference needs "Sista Kontraktet" added to it.

It's been bugging me but I don't know anything about Wikipedia.

Thanks a lot.

No problem, I'll try!

Just to get it right: do you want me to correct the name of the film title at the first mention, "The Last Contract" instead of "The Ultimate Contract" (I think the latter was the title of the book) and then delete it in the section "Other noted appearances include" as it has already mentioned before? Please confirm, thanks!

The thing that has always been bugging me is the following sentence in the theatre section: He is also well known for his part in Enchanted April.
Am I missing something or what does his appearance in Enchanted April have to do with theatre?

Next question: does anyone know what the "R." in Michael R. Kitchen stands for (if it is correct, of course)...

The "R" stands for Roy........Michael Roy Kitchen. Has a nice ring to it.

From Wikipedia:

In 1998 he casted the man who organized the murder of Olof Palme and then killed the murderer as well in the Swedish film Sista Kontraktet (The Ultimate Contract).

Personally, I would delete this whole sentence - it doesn't make sense. But I feel very mean saying that since it's probably written by someone who speaks more languages than I ever will.

I was thinking that if that sentence was deleted and then two sentences later when The Last Contract is mentioned again you could put (Sista Kontraktet) in parentheses. Or even:

Other noted appearances include Dandelion Dead (1994), A Royal Scandal (1996), The Last Contract (Sista Kontraktet,1998) a Swedish film about the assination of Prime Minister Olof Palme , Paul Abbott's Alibi in 2003, Andrew Davies' dramatisation of Falling in 2005, and ITV's three-part drama series Mobile (2007).

All of these changes seemed to happened at the same time the "R" was added to his name.

Now that you mention it, I was confused by the line about Enchanted April also but forgot about it when writing the earlier post.

I'm all for moving the Enchanted April line and you might as well add My Week With Marilyn and Hacks while you're at it.

That sure piled it on you, sorry.

No problem, I quite enjoy doing this.

I implemented the changes you requested, if you, or anyone else, notice any errors, want me to change anything or add anything regarding the new projects or anything else, just let me know :D

BTW, I deleted the sentence about Enchanting April in the theatre section, as the film was already mentioned in the film/TV one.
