How are we going to organize this page?[edit]

Hi SriMesh. Yes, I did save the text from Saskatchewan in popular culture before it was deleted (but unfortunately, I saved it before you started adding all of your contributions, so I guess those were lost?). I see you have organized the Saskatchewan page by quotes by Canadians and non-Canadians—I agree that's a good start. How else are you thinking about organizing it? Are you thinking about including every quote you can find, or being selective? Also, on the old Saskatchewan in popular culture page there were references not just to Saskatchewan the province, but also to the river and to the various communities. Did you want to include these as well? On the Saskatchewan in popular culture page, some of the references were not quotes per se, but just references that Saskatchewan is mentioned in such-and-such song or whatever, so for those I guess we would have to do more research to make them actual quotes. And some of the things in Saskatchewan in popular culture were just so-and-so from such-and-such movie was from Saskatchewan, so I guess we can't use those. Well, anyway, let me know what ideas you have and I can start contributing too. Also, let me know what kind of notes you have in mind for the quotes. Thanks! Moisejp

Will also reply at your user talk page. My first wikiquote article was British Columbia, and Alberta. There are some interesting comments on its nomination for deletion page (I am still new at wikiquote), which have helped to fine tune it somewhat, so by reading all of these, it gives some idea with which to go. The British Columbia has some notes about quotes which do not say British Columbia, but rather mention a place name or area, which was advised to show notability or reference to British Columbia. There are different ways to organise the quotation page, either the BC way or SK way which are both started. Have a bounce around the wikiquote places category for more ideas. It is good to hear from you again also!!! SriMesh | talk 04:35, 20 January 2008 (UTC)
If there are several quotes about a place name or area, they could have their own page, like Vancouver, or Emily Carr has here...apart from British Columbia's main article. If there are clips or scripts in the movies from Saskatchewan which mention Saskatchewan like the Corner Gas one already on the article, it would be a good to go. And So and So from Saskatchewan, even if they have notable quotes doesn't work on a place name article. As Emily Carr didn't last on the British Columbia article, and needed an entire article of her own, which BC could have a see also link to. MoS -discusses sections and introductions to quotations as well. policy SriMesh | talk 04:35, 20 January 2008 (UTC)

Deciding which quotes to include[edit]

When the old SIPC page was up for deltion, some people objected to some of the Saskatoon references, which seemed to be for the sake of a rhyme more than anything. Well, the only one of those I remember off the top of my head is Soul Coughing's "Saskatoon is in the room," but I wonder if that if that one should be cut? What do you think? --Moisejp 23:50, 6 March 2008 (UTC)

This one, it would be good to know what the writer was thinking when writing the song, it is very philosophical in tone. Kind Regards...70.64.182.182 03:37, 8 March 2008 (UTC)
