Last week I had added some information about several of the Brady characters -- those for Carol, Mike, Sam and Alice -- and this resulted in my being blocked for three days. The main reason given was "false information," which I can understand.
Where I have an issue is not whether the edits were edited or redacted, but that on several of the other Brady character pages, information about birthdates, middle names, names of previous spouses/significant others, etc., have been added (by other editors) but without sources. This, while an edit about Carol Brady's career as a real estate agent -- as seen in the "Brady Girls Get Married/Brady Brides," "A Very Brady Christmas" and "The Bradys" -- is discredited as "false." Could you explain?
My point is, if this is an encyclopedia where only canon information is added and is sourced or can be sourced by watching any episode, movie, etc., then we editors need to be consistent. I hope this makes sence. Briguy52748 (talk) 19:40, August 28, 2017 (UTC)
The deaths that you added of the characters were the false information. I asked you to stop when I reverted the first two, but you must not have read the message because you added two more, so I blocked you until you had time to read it. (Sorry for the three days, I thought I clicked one day, the smallest increment.)
I'm not a stickler for sources, but it would be nice for info that comes from the lesser-watched series. Feel free to add canon, but please refrain from fictitious or speculative crap.
Did not see the earlier post, so I'm not sure what happened there. Somewhere, somehow, something got lost.
Without getting into an argument, 1. Yes, I'll refrain in the future, but 2. For the other information, such as kids' middle names and other speculative information about their lives (I think there was one editor who suggested post-Bradys information about at least Peter and Cindy, for instance), the same standard needs to be added for whomever added those.
(Also regarding deaths, FWIW, there was something on Carol's page which suggests life dates for Mike, added by another editor. It's in the character infobox, the same one that suggests the name of her first husband.) Thanks kindly. Briguy52748 (talk) 22:03, August 28, 2017 (UTC)
Hi there, I see that you have been active on The Brady Bunch wiki. Can you tell me this: Do you know whether the full names, including middle names, accurate for the Brady characters? Where are they getting this information? The names are listed as follows: Michael Paul Brady, Caroline Ann Tyler Martin Brady, Gregory Stanford Brady, Marcia Denise Brady, Peterson Christian Edward Brady, Janet Elizabeth Brady, Robert Eric Brady, and Cynthia Sofia Brady. Is somebody pulling my leg?
Hi, Carol's maiden name is Tyler and her first husband's last name was Martin. I think those and her middle name may have been given in "The Honeymoon", but I haven't watched that in a while. I'm not sure about the other names, but I suspect they come from The Brady Brides or other such sequels.
As I watch, if I find where the names come from I will source them here. If you find out first, please let me know, or make an edit!
