Fair use rationale for Image:ChesnuTT.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:ChesnuTT.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 20:41, 2 June 2007 (UTC)

Friendship with the Strokes?[edit]

Does anyone know if Cody has a friendship with The Strokes or at least with Julian Casablancas? Because in this video, Julian invites Cody on stage and hugs him and dances with him. If he is friends with the Strokes, do you think it's worth mentioning in the article? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

I don't think it's worth mentioning --AW 15:50, 20 June 2007 (UTC)

the live release has not yet been released on cd[edit]

It was meant to move people, ChesnuTT explained, and to get them thinking - as is his latest work, a performance-based song cycle called The Live Release. The new material has not been released on CD; the songs are meant to be played, in order, before an audience. 'It's a body of work I've been experimenting with,' he said. 'It's really hard to describe. ... It's like a short musical, a flowing piece of work. I ask people, if they choose to applaud, to wait until the end of the whole piece. I also ask (concert promoters) for an intimate setting, so people have the mindset of being part of an intimate experience.


Song featured in Tupac Shakur movie 'Gridlock'd'[edit]

His song 'Deliberation' is featured in the movie Gridlock'd starring late rap star Tupac Shakur.


Surely "I Look Good In Leather" was a single, considering a video clip was produced, and shown on TV. And didn't he have any ^more^ albums or EP's? —DIV ( (talk) 04:19, 4 December 2008 (UTC))

Requested move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: no consensus for page move. It is a strongly supported guideline that we don't do special formatting for stage names, trademarks, etc. (Note that Pink (singer) is not located at P!nk.) The comparison with iTunes is not apt, because the capital 'T' there actually performs a semantic function - it helps readers parse the word, similar to CamelCase. "ChestnuTT" is not an example of CamelCase, unless the name is pronounced "Chestnu Tee Tee". - GTBacchus(talk) 15:23, 5 September 2010 (UTC)

Cody ChesnuttCody ChesnuTT — His last name is always written as 'ChesnuTT'. It is incorrect to write it with lower case Ts. It's a stage name, not a birth name, so however the artist stylises it in writing, is the only correct way of writing it. McLerristarr / Mclay1 12:11, 28 August 2010 (UTC)

  • Oppose, I recall restoring the current title last year per MOS:MUSIC#Capitalization. Spellcast (talk) 17:44, 28 August 2010 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Current article name and introduction correctly complies with the MOS guidelines. --DAJF (talk) 00:36, 29 August 2010 (UTC)

I don't see anything in WP:MOS that opposes this. I found this "As proper nouns, these names are almost always first-letter capitalized. Exceptions are made when the given individual does not want their name to be capitalized, and the lowercase variant has received regular and established use in reliable third party sources". If it works for normally capitalisated letters to be lower case, I don't see why it shouldn't work the other way around. His name is never spelt without the capital Ts. It's part of his name, it's not just stylisation. It's standard practice to use only a capital letter for the first letter of a name, but there is no rule in English that says one must do that. There are numerous last names that are CamelCase. McLerristarr / Mclay1 06:08, 29 August 2010 (UTC)

  • The Age doesn't agree with you that it's "never spelt without the capital Ts". Powers T 23:03, 30 August 2010 (UTC)
It's a newspaper – what would they know? On his official website, it always spells his name with capital Ts, even in prose. McLerristarr / Mclay1 02:40, 31 August 2010 (UTC)
His official web site is a primary source. We need to go with what secondary sources use. Powers T 12:55, 31 August 2010 (UTC)
That policy is BS. In history at high school, we were always taught that primary sources are the most important. How is it fair that others can decide the spelling of someone else's stage name? McLerristarr / Mclay1 01:05, 1 September 2010 (UTC)
Capitalization is not the same as spelling. Powers T 20:40, 1 September 2010 (UTC)
Well, that's just splitting hairs. If someone spelt my name 'matt' I'd say it was spelt wrong. McLerristarr / Mclay1 08:32, 2 September 2010 (UTC)
It's not splitting hairs; that's why MOS:CAPS and MOS:SPELL are two different guidelines. Powers T 12:53, 2 September 2010 (UTC)
Well, I wasn't being exact. I don't give a fuck. Also, iTunes is spelt/capitalised as such on Wikipedia despite being incorrectly rendered as 'Itunes' by many secondary sources. Looking at the first couple of pages on Google, more sites use 'ChesnuTT' than 'Chesnutt'. McLerristarr / Mclay1 12:26, 3 September 2010 (UTC)
Per Wikipedia:Manual of Style (trademarks), we have specific accommodations for trademarks that begin with a single lowercase letter followed by a capital letter. That doesn't apply for Cody Chesnutt. Powers T 15:58, 3 September 2010 (UTC)
