Bert Jansch[edit]

Hi SilkTork, I notice you added (some time ago!) a template to the Bert Jansch article, saying that the lead section should be expanded. I am keen to address the problem...did you have any specific suggestions of what should be added please? Thanks! Bluewave (talk) 22:16, 9 March 2011 (UTC)

One way of doing the lead is to include a brief summary of each section. The lead should be able to stand by itself as a mini-article, giving a reader the essential information. People tend to structure the lead so that the main points go in the first paragraph - Full name and dates, where born, occupation and why notable: significant recordings and a brief assessment culled from reliable sources - it is permissible to use tertiary sources for such overviews, and people find AllMusic.com quite useful for that, though other sources can and should be consulted. The second (and if needed, third) paragraph is generally given over to a summary of the person's biography and career. The last paragraph is then generally awards and achievements and a little more detailed assessment of notability. Take a look at Chuck Berry and Van Morrison.

OK I'll have a go at improving it if no-one beats me to it (unlikely!) Bluewave (talk) 09:03, 11 March 2011 (UTC)
I've had a go at a rewrite, on the Talk:Bert Jansch page. I didn't want to tinker about with the article itself until I'm confident of improving it...it is classified as a "good article", after all! I'd welcome your views on the draft. Thanks. Bluewave (talk) 12:19, 11 March 2011 (UTC)

That is good. Though, please, edit the article. We need editors to be WP:Bold. You clearly are capable, so don't hesitate to improve articles, regardless of their status. There is a current discussion regarding people not editing and staying on Wikipedia. I've just checked your contributions - you are the main contributor to Bert Jansch and took it to GA level. Why are you unsure about directly editing it? SilkTork *YES! 13:15, 11 March 2011 (UTC)

Arbcom case regarding The Beatles[edit]

Hi Bluewave, this is just a friendly notification to inform you that the Arbitration Commitee has declined to hear the case regarding The Beatles to which you were a party. Cheers. Salvio Let's talk about it! 12:12, 19 March 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the notification, but no surprise that it was declined :-) Bluewave (talk) 12:55, 19 March 2011 (UTC)

Please don't leave me a message...[edit]

... because I will not be editing Wikipedia and shall not see it. Bluewave (talk) 09:34, 24 March 2011 (UTC)


  • Jimbo is not the problem; It's editors who don't treat him as an editor but "as a god". Cheers and best to you (doesn't matter if you don't see it. It will sit here just fine.) TMCk (talk) 09:00, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
