Re Tom Zarek

On the Tom Zarek article, please give a reason behind reverts. --The Merovingian (C - E) 22:27, 11 July 2006 (CDT)

Sir: Here is what I wrote in the discussion section for that article:

No evidence that Zarek convinced Baltar to run for prez

I know of no evidence in the show that supports the following statement:

"...Zarek decides not to run against her because he realizes he probably won't win the election...but he decides that there's someone else that might be able to unseat Roslin, vice president Gaius Baltar. Zarek manages to talk vice president Gauis Baltar into running in his place..."

As far as the scenes actually broadcast in the show are concerned, Baltar makes his decision to run for the presidency entirely on his own, probably on the spur of the moment at Roslin's press conference, and never with any prior consultation with Zarek. It is not the case that Zarek "manages to talk" Baltar into "running in his place..." The above statement imagines more contrivance on Zarek's part than is supported by the facts.


I'd reccomend pulling it from the article into the talk page. Nobody appears to be citing any podcast/etc. material for that line, so it should be grounded in the aired content cited. If it isn't, then it doesn't belong. --Steelviper 10:52, 12 July 2006 (CDT)

Execllent Work!

Good work with the expansion of hard to find biographies! --Shane (T - C - E) 02:52, 15 July 2006 (CDT)


The ciation templates have been fisnhed. Check them over so you can see how to use them and how they are supposed to be used for websites and such. {{cite web}} is a good place to start. --Shane (T - C - E) 15:26, 5 August 2006 (CDT)


The tattoo on Katee Sackhoff's left arm is of a crucifix and during the show is always covered up, eg in The Farm her arm is covered in bandages. Did the magazine explicitly state information about the tattoo or is it just speculation? --Mercifull (Talk/Contribs) 04:35, 29 August 2006 (CDT)


In the virtual world, an apology and admittance of wrong are rare and precious things. We all could learn for it. Thank you. --FrankieG 12:14, 2 September 2006 (CDT)

Re: Occupation

The epsiode is not aired so how can a summary be generated. I have reverted your edit. --Shane (T - C - E) 01:48, 6 September 2006 (CDT)

You haven't even seen my references yet. Aren't your edits premature?--Elach 01:52, 6 September 2006 (CDT)
Maybe, but if the references cite rumors or annymous information they are disquified under the BW:CITE policy. --Shane (T - C - E) 01:58, 6 September 2006 (CDT)
But I didn't post the references yet, so you couldn't know. Do you always edit before people finish typing?--Elach 02:34, 6 September 2006 (CDT)
Your reversions are here where you can re-copy the info an paste it to the current version (worked on a cite). But I would always strive to post your cites along with your orginal posts so it doesn't happen as it did. I await to see your cites. --Shane (T - C - E) 02:40, 6 September 2006 (CDT)
