NPOV[edit]

I put the NPOV tag at the top of the page because the current article reads like a press release. Here are some offending sentences:

  • "112 is not the average put together singing group"
  • "Q gives 112 their trademark sexiness"
  • "This is a Grammy award winning group which is something that their closest competition group; Jagged Edge cannot boast"

Contradictions[edit]

  • This article completely contradicts itself several times when it talks about the current lineup. Does anyone have any reliable sources for any of this? Erpert (let's talk about it) 08:29, 30 November 2010 (UTC)
Looks fine to me. They split up and 3 got back together when they reformed. Where abouts is the contradiction? (removed tag for now) WormTT 14:45, 18 February 2011 (UTC)

Dead link[edit]

During several automated bot runs the following external link was found to be unavailable. Please check if the link is in fact down and fix or remove it in that case!

  • You're right, but is 112 a purely vocal group, or do they play instruments? If the former, 112 (group) would be the correct name. The (band) version is fine as a redirect, though. --BDD (talk) 17:41, 2 June 2014 (UTC)
  • Move to 112 (group) per BDD. --StarcheerspeaksnewslostwarsTalk to me 01:12, 7 June 2014 (UTC)

112 (group)112 (band) – The redirect should be the other way around to be in sync with the titles of most of the other articles on here about musical ensembles. Erpert blah, blah, blah... 16:12, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Oppose No, there's nothing unusual about this. Musical ensembles that play instruments are called bands; those that don't are just called groups. Examine Category:American rhythm and blues musical groups. Groups where the musicians are all vocalists may be called "bands" in common use, but this isn't strictly correct. --BDD (talk) 18:40, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
Both bands and groups are types of musical ensembles. That's why. Because the band/group distinction may not be made by many readers, I wouldn't object to a broad deprecation of the (group) disambiguator, but just changing one doesn't seem fruitful. You could try starting such a discussion at WT:NCM. --BDD (talk) 16:01, 9 July 2014 (UTC)
  • I would actually prefer 112 (ensemble). Having a number followed by "(group)" makes me think of a haplogroup. bd2412 T 12:47, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Support - don't understand BDD's comment since this band plays instruments. In ictu oculi (talk) 04:12, 14 July 2014 (UTC)
Ah, you're right. I must have overlooked that. --BDD (talk) 16:11, 14 July 2014 (UTC)
