Better source request for File:Stars Dance Tour.jpg[edit]

Thanks for your upload to Wikipedia:

You provided a source, but it is difficult for other users to examine the copyright status of the image because the source is incomplete. Please consider clarifying the exact source so that the copyright status may be checked more easily. It is best to specify the exact Web page where you found the image, rather than only giving the source domain or the URL of the image file itself. Please update the image description with a URL that will be more helpful to other users in determining the copyright status.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source in a complete manner. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link.

Assessment request of Ivi Adamou[edit]

Hello Dimitris,

Thank you for submitting an WikiProject Eurovision assessment request on the article Ivi Adamou. I will now check the article against the project's quality assessment scale criteria to see if the article may require its quality rating increased. I shall notify you of the outcome in due course. Regards, Wes Mᴥuse 18:00, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

I have assessed the article for you, and increased its quality rating to C-class. There are a few areas that still require some improvements in order for it to satisfy B-classification. Once those improvements have been made, then we can review the quality again. Regards, Wes Mᴥuse 18:55, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the assassment. I guess I'll need a peer review in order to see what improvements in need, right? I have had one peer request but it got me nowhere as no one said anything about. Well, I might give it a second try then. Dimitris  talk 19:43, 1 June 2014 (UTC)
In theory, you don't really need a peer review to see what else is required. If you check out the assessment page for Project Eurovision, you'll find an overview of each quality classification - to give a rough idea what to be aiming for. Also there's the criteria section that gives more in-depth advice on what is required to achieve each classification. And finally there is the FAQs on quality criteria, which may provide further answers. It took me a while to grasp the criterion for each, but over time I got use to them and can now assess quality from stub to C without having to cross-reference the criteria guides. If you wish top have a go at assessment yourself, then cross-check any article against the criteria for any of the quality ratings (with exception to A, GA, and FA - which require expert assessment). And once you feel an article satisfies all the requirements, then you've found the quality scale to award the article. Wes Mᴥuse 20:16, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

WikiProject Eurovision - consensus discussion[edit]

There is a discussion regarding colour coding on articles taking place on the project talk page that requires input from as many project members as possible. Thank you, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 21:15, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

Macedonian opinion poll[edit]

Dimitris,

You made this edit earlier today, and added a contentious piece about Macedonia, which is being discussed at Talk:Eurovision Song Contest 2015#Macedonian opinion poll. The reason the article itself has been placed on pending changes protection level, is because of that very piece and the edit warring it caused between editor's yesterday. The 'other countries' section is not to make reference to opinion polls. Wes Mᴥuse 12:24, 5 June 2014 (UTC)

Oh yeah sorry. I haven't noticed it (again). I should check the Talk page more often. I just figured out that since the poll is probably going to "count" for MRT whether they should participate or not. Dimitris  talk 15:10, 5 June 2014 (UTC)

Image positioning[edit]

I've had to revert the edit you made at Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2014 in which you repositioned the image so that it was directly under the "Graphic design" sub-header. This caused disruption of text flow between the sub-header and the rest of the sub-section's prose - which per WP:IMGLOC is to be avoided. This was why I positioned the image directly following the main section title "format", so that image itself was not being "clamped" in-between the sub-header and the prose.

Cyprus Eurovision 2015[edit]

Eurofan, I'm not overly convinced this edit should even have been done. There is nothing in sources that verify there will be placings announced for the EuroChallenges. So adding such information would be seen as speculative based on the fact there is nothing to verify; other than sources which state who qualified. Also assuming that there will be placings and adding such information would constitute original research - because again we cannot verify that songs finished 1-10 and 11-20 in EuroChallenge 1, and 1-6 and 7-10 in the second EuroChallenge. Unless there are sources to back up that results for both of those rounds will be published at a later date, then I would suggest avoiding speculative original research. Wes Mouse | T@lk 19:52, 31 January 2015 (UTC)

I know there is no source, but I was watching the national selection and I know that they voted and in order to advance, they were placed according their score. They didn't just select the ten/six who would advance to the next stage. I know there is no source for that, but as a native speaker of Greek I could understand what was going on during the selection. Dimitris  talk 20:03, 31 January 2015 (UTC)
And that is just going off the fact that you have seen it. Others who are non-Greek speakers or who have not seen the shows will not know or be able to verify these facts. It is best to wait for the official announcement (if one becomes published at a later date) and then add the information to avoid original research that as of yet is only known by yourself and not verified on published sources. The fact I have now challenged it twice proves that I have been unable to verify the content you wrote. Wes Mouse | T@lk 20:13, 31 January 2015 (UTC)
As the policy WP:V states, "in Wikipedia, verifiability means that people reading and editing the encyclopedia can check that the information comes from a reliable source. Wikipedia does not publish original research. Its content is determined by previously published information rather than the beliefs or experiences of its editors. Even if you're sure something is true, it must be verifiable before you can add it. When reliable sources disagree, present what the various sources say, give each side its due weight, and maintain a neutral point of view.". The way you changed the content only goes off your belief, and cannot be checked and verified by sources; as none have been published yet to show what is added is truth. Wes Mouse | T@lk 20:19, 31 January 2015 (UTC)
Well, the only source I could provide is this. I don't know if it's enough. Dimitris  talk 20:20, 31 January 2015 (UTC)
That would work to add cited evidence in the prose section above the EuroChallenge 1 results table - then we would be able to add insight into the voting system being used. Although we would need a similar source for EuroChallenge 2 that cites explicitly about the second round. Also I'll let you know now of a debate that is taking place at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Eurovision#Issues with a source. ESCKaz have been banned as a source by the project, due to them using content we have written and then claiming it to be their own; and now threatening legal action, despite being told they have plagiarised Wikipedia. Wes Mouse | T@lk 20:26, 31 January 2015 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── I've just removed the entire undue weight content that you added to Cyprus in the Eurovision Song Contest 2015. Stick to the main basic facts, there is no need to elaborate into how the show was opened, and the specialist performances throughout it - goes against the spirit of WP:PLOT; plus it is something that has never been done in the past all other country by year articles. Just mention about what the final is about, the voting procedure, and of course the eventual winner. Wes Mouse | T@lk 21:22, 1 February 2015 (UTC)

But in the Swiss article it says that they performed a cover of some songs (Shake It Off, Chandelier etc.). Dimitris  talk 21:24, 1 February 2015 (UTC)
That is under a different circumstance, as it explains that the final was in two part - of which the finalists performed their Eurovision entry as well as another song; all as part of the contest itself. In regards to Cyprus, the participants have only performed their Eurovision entry. The way you wrote the other content made it read as running blog commentary of the entire show, and we are not here to provide that service. We have to make sure everything written is in an encyclopaedic manner and context. Wes Mouse | T@lk 21:31, 1 February 2015 (UTC)
Can I just include the opening and the medleys they performed with the juries then? Dimitris  talk 21:34, 1 February 2015 (UTC)
Do those medley performances bear any impact on the result of the finalists? If not, then no they should not be included. If yes, then keep it brief, and sourced for verification. The two performances from the Swiss final did bear an impact upon the vote, and that's why the second performances have been mentioned but in a brief prose, whilst their main Eurovision entries are listed in table format. Perhaps checking Germany in the Eurovision Song Contest 2010, which went through a similar process as this year's Cypriot final may provide some inspiration how the Cyprus article could be improved - including an elimination chart that would provide quick summary of all the heats, eurochallenges, and final.
