Great job![edit]

For your great contributions to historical musical instrument articles Fut.Perf. 22:27, 18 November 2007 (UTC)

Hey, great job with those violin articles! I've taken the freedom of proposing the Bass violin for a possible mention in the daily "Did you know..." section on the main page. [1] Good stuff.

They'll probably like the proposal even better if you could give us some inline citations (footnotes) for some of the facts in the article, like for instance the dates about Jambe de Fer and Monteverdi I mentioned in the DYK notice. I mean, not that I'd doubt those facts are accurate, I can see you are evidently working from rock solid scholarly literature. Fut.Perf. 22:27, 18 November 2007 (UTC)

DYK[edit]

Updated DYK query On 21 November, 2007, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article bass violin, which you created or substantially expanded. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the Did you know? talk page.

Consensus before merger[edit]

Perhaps if you actually pointed out mistakes instead of declaring their existence without explanation, support, rationale, or reason. Hyacinth (talk) 15:53, 18 December 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of One for All (band)[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on One for All (band) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a band or musician, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hang on}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion, or "db", tag; if no such tag exists, then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hang-on tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Jimmy Pitt talk 14:29, 19 December 2010 (UTC)

Viol Posture[edit]

Ok Bassi, that's fine. Could you please insert the reference at the end of the first paragraph. I hope it was clear that I was expressing a guess - but since I didn't actually know I left the sentence there, though I stripped it of its original pomposity. I'm just weary with the continual vague references to "influences" and the marginalizing of the people who imaginatively created something new - this happens everywhere but is particularly exaggerated when it comes to Spanish matters. Originally, the first paragraph finished with a grandiose statement about the "developmental influence" of the "posture" of the Moorish rabab" without even mentioning the viol's origin in Spain. This, unfortunately has been typical, with guitars, international law, etc. This is why I get exasperated. Cheers Provocateur (talk) 22:55, 19 December 2010 (UTC)

Diminished unison[edit]

You can't get it through PROD, so you speedy it? Really? Isn't the next step supposed to be a nomination?
I have no particular attachment to the idea of the diminished unison, and wouldn't use the term myself, but as a couple of books note that it does in fact exist, I think putting it through speedy was a terrible idea. Roscelese (talk) 03:20, 24 December 2010 (UTC)

Uh, I'm lost... You mean you had better sources all along, but instead of improving the article by adding a citation, or at least mentioning something in the talk page, you simply took the deletion tag off of the article? Even if some reputable theorists believe the interval exists (and I still haven't seen anything definitive like Kostka and Payne), it doesn't need it's own article-it's just a difference of nomenclature. All of the variations are covered in semitone. Anyway, this is the first that I have heard from you, I really didn't think anyone was that concerned, and I frankly can't see why anyone cares so much about this redundant and ambiguous article. Sorry if I have offended you in some way, I'm just trying to get stuff done around here.BassHistory (talk) 08:50, 24 December 2010 (UTC)
Er, did you read WP:PROD before you used it? It's not like AfD where adding references makes a page less likely to be deleted. Only removing the prod tag takes it off the conveyor belt to deletion. You might well check out that page anyway, as you'll notice that the person who removes the tag is under no obligation to add references. Now I usually do, but because I have many other things to do both on Wikipedia and off, I wasn't able to do so right away.
I'm not personally offended - I'm just a bit shocked that someone might think "Oh well, someone objected to my deleting this. What to do now? If I put it through the regular deletion process other people might object too - better put it through speedy, which allows for no discussion." Did you read WP:SPEEDY before you used it? It certainly doesn't look like it. Roscelese (talk) 20:02, 24 December 2010 (UTC)
I was following the only reliable sources I had, and the Wikipedia guidlines. I figured I would see if I could get the article through speedy deletion before I wasted my time and everyone elses, debating something so trivial. I you find any sources that you wish to add to the semitone article, please go ahead. "Diminished unison," even if there are sources for it, is clearly the least important semitone, so it should be the last one to get its own article.BassHistory (talk) 23:42, 27 December 2010 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Lady Bird (composition)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Lady Bird (composition) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

No notability asserted.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.
