Pink Floyd were active from 1965-1995 and then the reunions happened in 2005, and 2014-present 24.251.185.107 (talk) 03:38, 8 August 2014 (UTC)

Please see the above discussion Years active. Mlpearc (open channel) 05:48, 8 August 2014 (UTC)
I've cancelled the request. As Mlpearc mentioned, see Talk:Pink Floyd#Years active for an ongoing discussion regarding this statistic. We welcome your opinion as to why you believe these dates should be used, as most of us have differing opinions on the context of "active" in the case of Pink Floyd. :) Cheers, Floydian τ ¢ 05:51, 8 August 2014 (UTC)

I must add that I think the "ongoing discussion" is pretty stupid. Almost every other article describing a band that has been active and inactive at times uses a clear set of dates. In example: "1965-199X, 2014-present". I'm not going to act like one way is correct but there's conflicting opinions about something that seems pretty simple. Swim Jonse (talk) 09:03, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

I just want to point out that the public does not have clear insight into all band activity, as clearly demonstrated by the 2013-14 recording sessions for the Endless River we knew nothing about. Here is another example, showing that Pink Floyd did exist in 2008. Upon the already seriously ill Richard Wright's request, Pink Floyd wanted to play once more at an open-air festival, in particular, in Glastonbury in 2008. The organizer of that event refused Pink Floyd's request. See: http://www.theguardian.com/music/2008/oct/07/pink.floyd.keyboardist.denied.last.wish 24.84.24.60 (talk) 21:11, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
Years active were changed yet again to "1965-1994, 2005, 2014- present". I don't agree with the 1965-1994 block, first of all. How was Pink Floyd exactly active between May 1983 (when the last Final Cut products were released, the 7 inch single and video EP) and October 1986, when the first recording sessions for the MLoR started? It should be "1965-1983, 1986-1994" instead - there were no concerts or recoding sessions between May 1983 and October 1986. Also, why is it "2014-present" and not "2013-present" when we know that Durga McBroom publicly stated she went into the studio to work on the Endless River in December 2013? 162.156.25.153 (talk) 16:34, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

The "alienation, war, and insanity section under themes states that "However, Waters also wanted the album to communicate positivism, calling it "an exhortation ... to embrace the positive and reject the negative."" with the word "positivism" linked. The context indicates that Waters wanted to communicate generally being positive, however the word "positivism" is linked to an article on philosophical positivism, which is a epistemic position and not really related with being positive. I'd like for this link to be removed as it distracts from the meaning of Waters.2620:10A:90CC:B070:8D36:1957:C38E:D365 (talk) 22:21, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

Your statement is unclear. What bit is unclear? Murry1975 (talk) 13:03, 9 September 2014 (UTC)
The dark side is always a bit unclear, that's because it's dark. Martinevans123 (talk) 13:10, 9 September 2014 (UTC)
