Dead link[edit]

The reference number 58 is missing it´s link I found the text and author from where the citation is taken in this page http://www.hiphop-network.com/articles/graffitiarticles/perspectiveongraff.asp — Preceding unsigned comment added by Erikant (talkcontribs) 00:37, 30 April 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for the note. The source actually shows that the Wikipedia content was copied verbatim from the copyrighted source, which is not allowed per WP:COPYPASTE. Accordingly I've removed the content and the link. Adrian J. Hunter(talkcontribs) 11:56, 30 April 2012 (UTC)

Images[edit]

I don't know how images are picked, but there are some nice graffiti images here. I took them myself today. :) Mohamed CJ (talk) 14:36, 28 August 2012 (UTC)

Graffiti to private property?[edit]

The lead says "public place" it's quoted from the OED which I have a copy of. But the exact same markings on private property would surely be described as graffiti too, like writing/images made on buildings, structures, vehicles or other surfaces of private residents or bussinesses. There are semi public/private place, toilet doors in night clubs can get defaced I am sure this would be described as graffiti. Also completely private areas, like if someone sprayed words on walls inside someones house, maybe whilst committing burglary, I would imagine this would still be described as graffiti no? Not even mentioning non criminal art, like a teenager decorating his bedroom by spraying words and pictures over the walls. Source/Reference? I can't quote the OED obviously but I'm sure published material such as news papers describing crimes would call this graffiti. Carlwev (talk) 21:47, 11 October 2012 (UTC)

Edit request on 21 May 2013[edit]

"graffiti" Is misspelled somewhere. To find it, just search for "grafitti" Rogierownage (talk) 14:00, 21 May 2013 (UTC)

Done - Thanks! --ElHef (Meep?) 14:14, 21 May 2013 (UTC)

Fixed a sea of blue (too many <ref> tags)[edit]

I thought I would mention that ironically in an article marked for lacking citations, I found about eight <ref> tags in a small paragraph, and they were relatively redundant. I fixed it, the section being here. impinball (talk) 02:25, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

Good edit. I have found references breaking up sentences and paragraphs unnecessarily and being needlessly repeated in many articles. Unless contentious individual facts need explicit support refs can go at the end of sentences or paragraphs they support. I appreciate your cleanup and hope you bring your editorial skills to other articles. - - MrBill3 (talk) 03:06, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

Graffiti is an art, style which are drawings on the wall. Though on the other case, Tagging is writings on the wall.
