A lot of non-fiction books have factual errors, so I was wondering what you all would think about putting in an "errors" section for these books, listing factual errors as well as errors in captions for pictures (this occassionally happens... For example, The Story of Jim Henson features a picture of Jim Henson with Junior Gorg, but the caption refers to the gorg as a Fraggle). I don't know if we need to bother with spelling and grammar errors, and it might be best not to consider something incomplete as an error (for example, if a book has biographies on various performers but leaves any out, for the timeline section of Jim Henson: The Works, which is comprehensive but isn't actually a complete listing of productions). What do you think? --Minor muppetz 05:42, 11 March 2007 (UTC)
- I'm not really comfortable with the idea on the book pages themselves. The only page where we do that is The Value of Imagination, and that's an exception since it's a children's narrative biography, and most of the errors appear to be the author's exercising "creative license" (i.e. just making things up). This could theoretically be useful, but I'd prefer it if they were on a seperate page. An example on format might be to follow this Errata model, as used by several other film/media critics and authors on websites, a seperate annotation of mistakes, in addition to whatever page they have on the book itself. Spelling and grammar errors generally shouldn't be noted, unless they occur in names or show titles, or possibly if there's a sentence or two that just doesn't make sense and needs clarification. And omissions should never be considered errors; they're generally oversights or the result of space limitations, but not being all inclusive isn't the same as perpetuating falsehoods. -- Andrew Leal (talk) 12:21, 11 March 2007 (UTC)
The items in this category don't really fit the description of "books about Jim Henson and the Muppets." They also include:
- Cookbooks -- C is for Cooking: Recipes from the Street, Muppet Picnic Cookbook (There's also The Sesame Street Cookbook, which isn't in the category.)
- How To -- Learn at Home the Sesame Street Way, Sesame Street Sign Language ABC with Linda Bove, Sign Language Fun
- Arts and Crafts -- Learn to Draw the Muppets, The Muppets Big Book of Crafts, The Muppets Make Puppets, Quilting with the Muppets
- Probably easier to adjust the description. I don't see how all those would fit in together, and I'm not a fan of the "one article in a category" idea. — Scott (talk) 01:35, 23 December 2006 (UTC)
