Good Article Review[edit]

Ms. Chanteuse...[edit]

Hey buddy :) Have you heard it yet? I want to know what you think. Very impressive and solid. I wasn't expecting so much raw soul. She really sang to her current limits. Definitely worlds ahead of Memoirs (my least favorite to date from her) & E=MC2. Put a big smile on my face and trickled down several tears.--PeterGriffinTalk2Me 00:13, 22 May 2014 (UTC)

No I haven't. It won't let me listen to it on iTunes Radio because it's for the US.  — ₳aron 12:27, 22 May 2014 (UTC)
Calvin, regarding your addition of credits to the MIAM song articles, thanks for that. But do you by any chance have the catalogue no. or the iTunes ID for the album? If so please add it. —Indian:BIO · [ ChitChat ] 13:07, 27 May 2014 (UTC)
From where?  — ₳aron 15:45, 27 May 2014 (UTC)
I added the "Thirsty" sample in hopes you (as the author of the article) would write an appropriate description etc. Maybe you didn't notice, but it is still bare. Please add one.--PeterGriffinTalk2Me 20:15, 2 June 2014 (UTC)

Possible help[edit]

Calvin, regarding this revert and notice, I'd first like to thank you for your assistance. The "G.U.Y." page has been facing lots of fancruft over the past couple months, mainly from socks of a disruptive user named Reece Leonard who inflates Lady Gaga's success. User was topic-banned from Gaga articles back in March for persistent inflation of critical success, mainly on the Artpop page. Since then, he began socking to evade the topic ban. IndianBio, STATicVapor, Homeostasis07, and myself have had to keep a close watch on the Artpop and G.U.Y. pages for his socks. His most recent socking got him blocked for a month (which expires in one week). However, if this IP is another sock of his, I have a slight concern your notice could be a case of WP:BEANS and prompt further disruption. Of course, there's also a chance that this is some other unrelated Gaga fan intent on fancruft or just some other disruptive user altogether given the IP's other edits and vandalism notice from a while back. If this was a registered account, this would be less difficult to determine. His signature move is inflating things like "mixed reviews" to "positive reviews". Perhaps you could lend a hand in monitoring Artpop-related articles for fancruft/socks? XXSNUGGUMSXX (talk) 00:29, 2 June 2014 (UTC)

Yeah that's fine. But it doesn't matter who it is, I warn anyone who vandalises or edits without just cause.  — ₳aron 13:21, 2 June 2014 (UTC)
Understood, just hoping it doesn't backfire. XXSNUGGUMSXX (talk) 17:14, 2 June 2014 (UTC)


Could you help me expand the article of Carey's upcoming single You Don't Know What to Do ? thanks a lot fidelovkurt 18:56, 5 June 2014 (UTC)

Mariah Carey=D[edit]

Hey friend, whats up? Well... I have a wish. Please don't delete the references on Mariah Carey discography article. These are the real promotional singles with real references. The tables were corrected to 10 charts and certificates too. This article needed changes and updates. It's a beautiful and correct article now. Please help me make this even better. But don't change as before - was ugly and wrong. Thanks! Carpe Diem friend =D

Sale el Sol GT[edit]

Hi Aaron! Been a long time since I was on Wikipedia. Whenever you have time, could you please comment on Wikipedia:Featured topic candidates/Sale el Sol/archive1. I have nominated Sale el Sol for good topic. Not canvassing around or anything, but I just hope the nomination ends quickly (regardless of the verdict). Anyway what's up? I haven't seen you working on any articles lately. --WonderBoy1998 (talk) 16:39, 24 June 2014 (UTC)

Hey yes I do have some comments to post on the GT proposal but I will do it when I have the time to go through them all properly. Yeah I have been making edits here and there, haven't really got time for full blown overhauls at the moment.  — ₳aron 12:28, 26 June 2014 (UTC)
I was fooling around a bit and I was a little disappointed seeing how things are going, I don't know why. A lot seems to have changed during my hiatus. :/ --WonderBoy1998 (talk) 17:59, 26 June 2014 (UTC)

WikiCup 2014 June newsletter[edit]

After an extremely close race, Round 3 is over. 244 points secured a place in Round 4, which is comparable to previous years- 321 was required in 2013, while 243 points were needed in 2012. Pool C's Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions) was the round's highest scorer, mostly due to a 32 featured pictures, including both scans and photographs. Also from Pool C, Scotland Casliber (submissions) finished second overall, claiming three featured articles, including the high-importance Grus (constellation). Third place was Pool B's , whose contributions included featured articles Russian battleship Poltava (1894) and Russian battleship Peresvet. Pool C saw the highest number of participants advance, with six out of eight making it to the next round.

The round saw this year's first featured portal, with Republic of Rose Island Sven Manguard (submissions) taking Portal:Literature to featured status. The round also saw the first good topic points, thanks to Florida 12george1 (submissions) and the 2013 Atlantic hurricane season. This means that all content types have been claimed this year. Other contributions of note this round include a featured topic on Maya Angelou's autobiographies from Idaho Figureskatingfan (submissions), a good article on the noted Czech footballer Tomáš Rosický from Bartošovice v Orlických horách Cloudz679 (submissions) and a now-featured video game screenshot, freely released due to the efforts of Republic of Rose Island Sven Manguard (submissions).

The judges would like to remind participants to update submission pages promptly. This means that content can be checked, and allows those following the competition (including those participating) to keep track of scores effectively. This round has seen discussion about various aspects of the WikiCup's rules and procedures. Those interested in the competition can be assured that formal discussions about how next year's competition will work will be opened shortly, and all are welcome to voice their views then. If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article candidates, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews. If you want to help out with the WikiCup, please do your bit to help keep down the review backlogs! Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck! If you wish to start or stop receiving this newsletter, please feel free to add or remove yourself from Wikipedia:WikiCup/Newsletter/Send.
