Cleanup[edit]

The cleanup/reorganize tag was added because the color scheme seems more like trying to match the colors of the logo than making it like other similar articles, which is inappropriate via WP:MOS. Dennis Brown (talk) 00:43, 31 October 2011 (UTC)

Response

So Dennis Brown I'm sure you're a really nice guy, but it looks like you're adding the tags not because of the the article needing a cleanup and reorganizing but just because the color scheme of the column boxes are not the color scheme of original boxes and are matching the Roc Nation colors and of the logo.

That is just plain out bias it not my fault that other people do not do this when creating a record label singles discography, which they can and you have not seen one with a color scheme on them. All I have done is put the 3 basic colors Black, Red and White of Roc Nation on a original Wikipedia column to distinguish it from other record label singles discography and the other names of the artists that are on the article, because the article would grow as those and more artist release more singles and songs, which makes it appropriate and not inappropriate as you have stated for you reason of adding cleanup/reorganize tags. Once again all I did is add 3 basic colors to the original columns Black, Red and White which anybody can do on any other record label discographies on Wikipedia, but I may have been the first to do this new color scheme styling of a record label singles discography that does not mean you just add tags that are not meant to be on a specific article that is formatted, organized and written like any other record label singles discographies on Wikipedia and is fully verified.

There is no Wikipedia rule that says this is not justified for a record label singles discography except for you Dennis Brown, I'm sure you're a really nice guy, but this just plain bias, which Wikipedia does not condone from established editors or administrators.

  • What I am going by is the actual Manual of Style here, ie: Wikipedia:Manual_of_Style_(text_formatting)#Color, in particular, as it applies to accessibility. I'm sure there are other guidelines as well. As far as "bias", well, yes, most experienced editors do have a bias to make the encyclopedia look consistent. This isn't a bad thing.

    • Dennis asked for my p[inion as an experienced editor (and administrator) here. Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, and follows a standard format. It's not a collection of promotional web pages, where every group and company gets distinguished by their own design. We limit that expressiveness to the logo in the infobox. this is pretty basic here, and its not rezally a matter for discussion; that's why we have a manual of style. The colors must be changed to the standard. Non-standard presentations make for an article that looks like an advertisement, and I could even see my way to deleting it for that reason under WP:CSD#G11 The label can express its idividuality elsewhere where it's appropriate. Here, we just describe it in a neutral fashion, complete with out neutral standard color scheme. DGG ( talk ) 12:48, 31 October 2011 (UTC)

Question[edit]

Is there any reason to why "other charted songs" are being featured on here? The title is Roc Nation singles discography. Other charting songs are relevant for a specific artist's discography, but not that of a record label. Status {talkcontribs 08:12, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

Orphaned references in Roc Nation singles discography[edit]

I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of Roc Nation singles discography's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

Reference named "BPI":

Reference named "RIAA":

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT 11:04, 15 December 2013 (UTC)
