Welcome and introduction[edit]

Hi, 87Fan. This is NOT some automated message...it's from a real person by golly! And this real person (that would be me), wants to say welcome to Wikipedia! I'm glad you've made an account! Thanks for joining; you're on your way to making some great contributions.

Because I've noticed you've just joined, I wanted to give you a few tips to get you started. If you have any questions, please talk to us. Any questions are fine, nothing is too silly (we've heard them all). Now, the tips below - hop on them - they should help you begin editing. Best of luck! JoeSmack Talk 00:54, 30 December 2009 (UTC)

Yessss! You made an account! Totally sweet!
  • Anybody can edit; just go to an article and edit it. Be Bold, but please don't put silly stuff in - it will be removed very quickly, and will annoy people. Besides that, you shouldn't feel nervous or anything about a good-willed contribution. If you're concerned, talk to us.
  • When you're ready, start your first article using the Article Wizard. You don't HAVE to use it, but for your first article it really helps. It should be about something well-known, and it will need references. If you'd like more guidance, you guessed it, talk to us.

Good luck with editing; please drop me a line some time on my own talk page. (You'll want to sign your name with these four tildes ~~~~ when you leave something on a talk page to help know who you are!)

Once again, welcome to the fantastic world of Wikipedia!

P.S. If you just feel like poking around, Wikipedia:Help is a good place to start. :)

Hi there[edit]

Hi mate, I've seen you round adding useful stuff to Bowie articles. I was responsible for getting most of the albums from 1967 to 1980 into a decent state but these days I generally just keep them on my watchlist and tweak formatting or revert vandalism. Great that you collected and kept those music mags, I still have a few myself that've proved useful on WP, such as the Dame's in-depth NME interview around the time of Scary Monsters and Elephant Man in 1980. Re. the latest addition to the 1967 album, appears the quote is an 'extended version' of one I already had in the Influences section. I was thinking perhaps we merge them, moving the full quote from its own section to Influences. WDYT? Cheers, Ian Rose (talk) 01:27, 7 November 2011 (UTC)

Thanks! I'm totally ok with the change you suggest. I'm embarrassed that I didn't notice you already had the quote in the Influences section - didn't mean to be repetitive. Feel free to chop up my changes - or even revert them if you feel they don't add anything. Thanks! 87Fan (talk) 01:31, 7 November 2011 (UTC)

Heathen[edit]

Hello, I have some questions on your editions in Heathen. Let's talk about it here. Thanks, NandO talk! 06:44, 20 December 2011 (UTC)

Glass Spider Tour / Sound and Vision Tour[edit]

Hi.

As you may or may not have seen, i`m semi retired from this wonderful project, mainly because the work of assessment its endless and unthankful, but if everyone was as you, i probably still would be around.

The articles are quite good, the only thing missing are more categories, by the way, the tool to add, modify or remove categories is awesome and wasn`t there when i was heavy editing; other than that, images are always good, reception section is a must in album articles, don`t know if the tours have reviews, if they do, then they MUST be in the article, and a music sample goes a LONG way to becoming a GA.

Anything else, you let me know, i still check my watchlist several times a day.

PS: I also watched Labyrinth and loved it, specially Sir... don`t remember but he rode a dog and wanted to play scrabble at the end. Zidane tribal (talk) 01:54, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the feedback, I may take a stab at upgrading some of the C-class articles to B-class over time. You're thinking of Sir Didymus from Labyrinth btw! 87Fan (talk) 23:23, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for January 12[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Never Let Me Down, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Let's Dance (album) (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Orphaned non-free media (File:David Bowie The Interview LP.jpg)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:David Bowie The Interview LP.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Hazard-Bot (talk) 04:10, 2 February 2013 (UTC)

Never Let Me Down[edit]

I've begun the GA review for Never Let Me Down, and would like your thoughts on a few points on the review page. Thanks for your work on this one--I'm sorry you had to wait so long for a review! -- Khazar2 (talk) 02:28, 18 April 2013 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

For your contributions to bring Never Let Me Down to Good Article status. Thanks from me and David Bowie, and keep up the good work! -- Khazar2 (talk) 03:52, 24 April 2013 (UTC)

reffing a facebook post[edit]

Saw your question in the edit summary. I don't know that there's any established way, but a normal web citation template ought to do it--just add the URL, date, and accessdate, with "David Bowie official Facebook page" or a similar phrase under "publisher". You might use a web archiver like WebCite to save it for future reference, too, since this is something that might be a dead link in a year. You can see the template at User:Khazar2/Useful. Hope this helps! -- Khazar2 (talk) 17:57, 26 April 2013 (UTC)
