Incorrect pronunciation of Goulding is quite common. The correct pronunciation is "Golding" as made very clear in this video. Do you think mentioning correct pronunciation at the beginning of the article or elsewhere is warranted? I feel that it is, but I'd like to know the thoughts of the moderators. Some people (like me to start with) pronounce(d) Goulding- Gow-Ding. ~~ Electricmaster (talk) 03:12, 11 November 2013 (UTC)
First off wiki doesn't have moderators, we're expected to self govern through good faith and cooperation, there are processes for disputes. On topic I think if mispronunciation is a common problem it may be appropriate to mention the correct pronunciation right at the front of the lead- provided that is in fact how Ellie pronounces it herself. A lot of people forget that it's up to the people who have the names how they should be pronounced.Batvette (talk) 21:33, 16 November 2013 (UTC)
Your reliable source also says that she dated "Australian" DJ Skrillex. Someone better call Obama and tell them to yank his US passport. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 15:18, 10 March 2014 (UTC)
Most artists from the UK are down as being British. But Ellie is down as being "English", which is not a passport nationality. Should we leave it or change it? 18.104.22.168 (talk) 22:52, 1 November 2013 (UTC)
English is fine. See WP:UKNATIONALS. You will need to provide a source that she self-identifies as British rather than English. Nymf (talk) 22:59, 1 November 2013 (UTC)
And no, it isn't important really - only to someone who has an agenda which is what is coming across here Mr. IP...that note is hardly necessary especially considering you have no consensus and it is WP:BURDEN on you. -Somchai Sun (talk) 23:05, 1 November 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for using the talk page. Well, that's interesting info - but questionable. It contradicts the current sourced info about her growing up and attending school in England, and going on to attended the University of Kent. Her supposedly being Welsh is further discredited by her Facebook page which states her hometown is in England, along with her official twitter. Also, that Guardian piece is not written by Ellie herself and the info could always be wrong. I think the most damming thing though is that if Ellie Goulding objected to being described as English i'm sure her PR team or herself would of personally contacted Wikipedia. It's an old source and it appears to be unreliable due to more up-to-date sources being present, along with the other contradictions. Interesting to note but isn't her surname Jewish? --Somchai Sun (talk) 13:25, 2 November 2013 (UTC)

I am a student at the University of Arizona and I am taking an online class called, Rock and American Popular Music. My assignment this week is to pick and read a Wikipedia article relating to music in some sort of way. We then have to do further research on articles that are more reliable, using our UofA library, and find more reliable information on the same given topic. After researching, we are assigned to return back to the Wikipedia page with our new, reliable information, and either edit any info that is not correct (dates, etc.) or add a a truthful, factual sentence that could enhance the page in some way. For my assignment I will make minor changes, such as making changes to, "she began playing the clarinet at the age of nine, and at 14 began learning guitar," changing "14," to "fourteen."
Hi, Pettibon, welcome to Wikipedia. While we appreciate your contributions, the edit request process is only for proposing specific changes, not for general permission to edit the page. I've changed the "14" to "fourteen" as you mentioned; if you have any more specific changes to propose, please open another request.
