Talk:John Anderson (Dr. Sleep)


This needs a rewrite, since some paragraphs are almost word for word from the bio on his web page.    Ryan W 23:48, 5 March 2008 (UTC)

Should it mention that he has been missing since late 2004? Nobody knows what happened to him, he just dropped off the face of the earth. --Quasar 06:29, February 13, 2010 (UTC)

Is the mention of him being under investigation by the FBI and owing John Romero $10,000 serious, or a deadpan joke? It seems odd that he would owe John Romero anything (unless e.g. he was paid a tonne of cash to design some levels and then just vanished). I suppose we'll never know. -Ashley Pomeroy 19:41, July 10, 2010 (UTC)

While I'm at it a John Anderson, calling himself "Dr Sleep" and living near Pittsburgh, reviewed a few things for in 2006, post-dating his 2004 vanishment. In fact the first review is of Doom, the film, and the text mentions his level designing past. -Ashley Pomeroy 19:50, July 10, 2010 (UTC)
And there's this John W Anderson, who wrote a television screenplay and a book about breast cancer, and who pops up in this article in the New York Times, but although they are conceptually similar - married, kids, writer, not afraid of technology or being in the newspaper - they don't seem to be the same man. -Ashley Pomeroy 20:10, July 10, 2010 (UTC)

Missing image[edit]

The image that was on this page and was removed in the previous edit seems to have gone missing without leaving a proper audit trail in the wiki database. If anybody knows anything about how or when this image was deleted (AFAIK it was present as of the fork from our previous host), please post that information here along with your best guess on why whatever action taken to remove this file wasn't properly discussed or logged. --Quasar 16:27, 18 December 2013 (UTC)

Never mind I have found information by trying to access the file's history. I still don't know why it doesn't show up in the deletion log (MediaWiki glitch?), but at least the mystery is solved. --Quasar 16:34, 18 December 2013 (UTC)
Sure it does.  [1]   The deletion log itself seems to only transclude to the blank page under Monobook, however.    Ryan W 23:36, 18 December 2013 (UTC)
I wasn't including the File: part in my search >.< --Quasar 19:48, 19 December 2013 (UTC)

Purported death[edit]

Given some things going on, I am not going to accept the current pending edit to this page yet, and I'm going to suggest no one else do it either for the time being. --Quasar (talk) 20:26, 8 September 2018 (CDT)
