Image swap[edit]

I've been replacing this png with Image:Musical notes.svg on all the other music-related templates, but this one is protected... requesting assistance! ~ Booya Bazooka 03:21, 1 August 2006 (UTC)

Done. —Ruud 13:25, 1 August 2006 (UTC)

Unlinking song[edit]

{{editprotected}} "Song" is a common, widely-understood word, there's no beneft to linking it. Can the linking be removed, per WP:OVERLINK? Colonies Chris (talk) 12:08, 26 January 2011 (UTC)

Your mass delinking has caused controversy in the past. Is there a consensus for delinking words in stub templates? — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 22:35, 29 January 2011 (UTC)
  1. My suggestion is in line with the MoS - see WP:OVERLINK
  2. I proposed this type of unlinking at WT:STUB#Valueless links in stub templates months ago and it received no objections
  3. Another user subsequently raised the isssue at WP:WSS#Delinking_of_templates and the only 'controversy' was a complaint about a simple error I had made in one isolated case.
  4. Back in October last year I delinked the word 'song' from more than a dozen stub templates (children of this one); there have been no objections and no reversions of these changes. Colonies Chris (talk) 00:44, 30 January 2011 (UTC)
It may be that no one is objecting, but whenever this has been discussed there have been editors who have expressed opposition to what you are doing. I've posted at Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Stub_sorting#Delinking_of_templates to try to determine whether these edits are considered worthwhile. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 12:28, 31 January 2011 (UTC)
No opposition, so Yes check.svg Done — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 15:24, 2 February 2011 (UTC)
