The Matrix[edit]

Hi, just to let you know, I've reverted your change on the Matrix Reloaded article. Don't worry: there is nothing wrong with adding quotes (i.e., what you did wasn't vandalism), but Wikiquote has recently strongly implemented copyright protections, see Wikiquote:Limits on quotations and Wikiquote:Copyright. If you see the note on the Matrix Reloaded talk page (or hidden in the article's script), the article already has its maximum permissible number of quotes (maximum 15 for that movie, based on its length). If you'd like to add a quote, you have to remove a quote that is already there; please see Wikiquote:Quotability on how to decide how do this. Also note that dialogue needs special consideration (see the Matrix Reloaded talk), and should not be only important within the context of the movie, nor require any "stage directions" if it is indeed quotable (i.e., [The Merovingian's men open fire on Neo, who stops all the bullets in mid-air without any apparent effort]). For example, see the appropriate style of dialogue quotability:

Commander Locke: Damnit, Morpheus, not everyone believes what you believe.
Morpheus: My beliefs don't require them to.

Neo: What does he want?
The Oracle: What do all men with power want? More power.

The longer piece of dialogue below these is meant to show the style of explanatory dialogue in the film and elucidate the style of writing (thus, in a way, it fulfills a purpose of "quoting"). Peace and Passion ("I'm listening....") 18:34, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

Anytime! If you really want to lend a hand (though it's kind of thankless work), we're doing a heavy-duty cleanup project (due to some copyright concerns from the "higher-ups" at the Wikimedia Foundation, and historical issues, like the legal shutdown of the French Wikiquote). Your help would be greatly appreciated! See: Wikiquote:Copyright Cleanup Project, and its talk. Ask any questions you'd like there, and if you like, you can lend a hand. Thanks, Peace and Passion ("I'm listening....") 18:49, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
