Hey, I saw you recommended my draft to Curly Turkey. I really appreciate it! Based on the backlog, I was expecting about a six month wait. Happy New Year!--L1A1 FAL (talk) 00:12, 31 December 2014 (UTC)

Update - Hey Retro, I appreciate you asking someone to take a look at Hidden Treasures, but I'm thinking about quick-failing the article myself... and renominating to find a more cooperative reviewer. I really expect some communication during a GA review, and I don't feel that the reviewer in question has displayed that quality. As I pointed out on his own page, he's talked more to you about the article than he has to me. In any case, I do appreciate your help. Thanks again, and happy new year!--L1A1 FAL (talk) 19:58, 4 January 2015 (UTC)
I can finish the process instead of you, if you don't mind. We're really close to getting this one to GA, and waiting another six months for a reviewer is wasting time, at least from my perspective. I can find another source for the single being released in 1990, and we can wrap this review.--Retrohead (talk) 22:17, 4 January 2015 (UTC)
No, I got this one. Just talked to Curly, and it was just a misunderstanding on my part. if you want to add the source, feel free to, but I'll deal with the rest of the stuff. That damn article is so close though. It's the only thing keeping me from trying to make a good topic featuring the Megadeth studio discography. Thanks again!--L1A1 FAL (talk) 23:01, 4 January 2015 (UTC)
Hey, I need your assistance with something on the HT review. Can you verify some of the stuff about "No More Mr Nice Guy" that Curly brought up? Cited source is Buckley 2003 (Rough guide to rock or something like that). I'm presuming book that was one of your additions. Thanks--L1A1 FAL (talk) 01:09, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

Another OMEGA idea[edit]

Hey, now that we got Hidden Treasures knocked out, what do you think of the idea of making the fourteen albums plus the EP into a good topic? That was something I was hoping to do, but I'm not sure how. Does it have to be a book or something first? What's your thoughts on the matter? Thanks again for the work on HT and take care!--L1A1 FAL (talk) 01:27, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

Yes, I'm definitely for it. You can find more about the procedure at WP:GT. I'll leave the candidature to you, because I'm busy right now with a GA review and improving Puppets. Good luck.--Retrohead (talk) 10:26, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

Falcon's Fury[edit]

Hey Retrohead, would you mind leaving a few comments (or just a support Smile eye.png) on the Falcon's Fury FAC review. I know you left comments before but that review was closed due to a lack of responses. Thanks!--Dom497 (talk) 15:57, 17 January 2015 (UTC)

It Won't Be Soon Before Long[edit]

There's an IP added unproperly sources, especially Rolling Stones where says "one of major pop rock sellers" does not means a pop rock album. Has any reliable sources for others. (talk) 06:04, 21 January 2015 (UTC)

Tomislav Kezarovski[edit]

Hi, thank you for your improvements! If you like, have a look to the Macedonian version. It is still too long and wasn't easy to write.--Stonepillar (talk) 11:47, 21 January 2015 (UTC)

No problem, I'll check the Macedonian one. That's my native language, it should be easier job.--Retrohead (talk) 12:14, 21 January 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for your help. But please could you look again into the Mac text: they threaten to delete the whole text. It would be better to improve it! Or do they ant to liquidate Kezarovski for political reasons??? --Stonepillar (talk) 11:21, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

List of thrash metal bands[edit]

I integrated the images on the list of thrash metal bands into the list table. That hopefully takes the article a lot closer to addressing the issues found during the FL nomination, and hopefully the article will be ready to re-undergo the process.--3family6 (Talk to me | See what I have done) 20:19, 21 January 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for taking care of that issue. I probably won't open a second nomination in near future, but if you have the patience to go through the process, you can make a try.--Retrohead (talk) 10:46, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

Tunnel Vision FAC[edit]

Здраво Ретро. Може една голема услуга? Ќе можеш ли да направиш review на "Tunnel Vision" на FAC-oт на статијата? Ти благодарам и биди ми поздравен! =) — Tomíca(T2ME) 11:27, 30 January 2015 (UTC)

Ок, ќе погледам веднаш.--Retrohead (talk) 11:34, 30 January 2015 (UTC)

City of Angels FAC[edit]

Hi Retrohead! After your comment at the first FA nomination for City of Angels (Thirty Seconds to Mars song), the article underwent a copyediting treatment and the discussion about the genre came to an end. Would you like to comment at the current nomination? Your help would be very much appreciated.--Earthh (talk) 12:04, 7 February 2015 (UTC)

Will take a look sometime this week. Thanks for letting me know.--Retrohead (talk) 11:05, 8 February 2015 (UTC)

Puppets FA2[edit]

I think you've rushed into this again—there are still unresolved issues, such as insufficient context and referencing—I mean, ref#3 is to "pp. Chapter 5 & 7"?!? And ref#22 is to "pp. 34, 53–54, 61–63, 72–73"—no! That ref doesn't point to each of those pages each time it's used. Take a look at a few recent FAs and see how page referencing is done. I don't want to have to oppose again, but seriously, the article still needs some more care and shouldn't have been renominated yet. Curly Turkey ¡gobble! 00:04, 11 February 2015 (UTC)

I used chapters because Google Books somehow can not count pages on certain books (example). These things are a sword with two blades. If I go with the "sfn" refs, the referencing style won't be consistent because there is a good amount of books with one page used and it wouldn't be necessary to list those books in 'Bibliography'. I've tried to use the sources chronologically, ex. "a" from ref 22 is the first page cited, etc.--Retrohead (talk) 00:18, 11 February 2015 (UTC)
There are plenty of ways to handle it without {{sfn}}s, and a mix of short references and non-short references is acceptable at FAC. What's not acceptable is something like ref#22—obviously each citation to it is not cited four separate page ranges. Of course, referencing isn't the only issue left open, though. Curly Turkey ¡gobble! 02:11, 11 February 2015 (UTC)
The book you're mentioning, Birth School Metallica Death (chapters 5 and 7 used), doesn't display page counter (link/proof). Therefore I can not provide exact pages as you require. The same issue is with McIver's book. I can handle Wall's and Bowcott's sources based on the draft you created, but that would create discrepancy in the sourcing. It's not that I don't want to cite exact pages, but I'm not able to do that. That's why I'm citing chapters with visible titles.--Retrohead (talk) 21:07, 11 February 2015 (UTC)

Featured Article candidates[edit]

I have finished a review for Master of Puppets, and left some suggestions on things that may be fixed. Can I ask you, in return, to review Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Graduados/archive1? It is an Argentine soap opera that includes several references to the world of rock music. Cambalachero (talk) 16:34, 26 February 2015 (UTC)

Sure, I'll take a look at it. Thanks for your input at Puppets.--Retrohead (talk) 20:10, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Today's featured article/March 16, 2015[edit]

Hi Retrohead. A summary of a Featured Article you nominated at WP:FAC will appear on the Main Page soon. Does the article need more work before its day on the Main Page? I had to squeeze the summary down to around 1200 characters; was there anything I left out you'd like to see put back in? - Dank (push to talk) 15:55, 27 February 2015 (UTC)

The summary reads fine. You may replace the released singles with another information (let's say the "dry" prodiction) because they don't seem very notable. Thanks for informing me on this one.--Retrohead (talk) 08:15, 28 February 2015 (UTC)
Done, glad you liked it! - Dank (push to talk) 13:18, 28 February 2015 (UTC)


I saw a conversation regarding a few archives of Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Falcon's Fury/archive4 awhile back since the FA reviews did not receive enough attention. It kind of bummed me out. If you have a minute, can you take a look and offer any other thoughts? On a side note, Master of Puppets is a great album and I will pop in and offer a review over the next day or so! Cptnono (talk) 05:55, 4 March 2015 (UTC)

I'll definitely make suggestions at Falcon's Fury FAC. It's a pity that the nomination hasn't attracted more attention among reviewers, but I'll submit some comments this weekend, when I'm school free. And thanks for your input on Puppets, that album deserves a proper article.--Retrohead (talk) 10:19, 4 March 2015 (UTC)
