Talk:Dan Smith

[edit] Dan

Shouldn't this page be at Dan Smith proper? That's how he's usually called, isn't it? -- Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 08:31, 31 January 2009 (UTC)

I thought that article titles present the 'official' name. Sage 10:41, 31 January 2009 (UTC)
Good luck on JRRT, then ;). In the case of persons, it's the common name, rather than the full name. -- Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 18:01, 31 January 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Website

Looks like the Tolkien Estate sent Dan Smith a DMCA takedown, his site is blank and the download links have been removed. 67.1.216.141 00:39, 28 September 2014 (UTC)

I'm not sure on what basis you can suggest that. Even if his website has been taken down which it hasn't how would you know if the Estate (or anyone else) had been involved? --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 09:08, 28 September 2014 (UTC)
My bad, I see you mean that the individual pages have been blanked such as this. This seems to have happened earlier in the year, judging by some messages on discussion boards. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 09:16, 28 September 2014 (UTC)
His page has been a reference point for years. I added this event to the article. Sage 12:28, 28 September 2014 (UTC)
We could check Wayback for the last change, to get a more accurate date of the removal. --Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 13:47, 28 September 2014 (UTC)
