Chart procession and succession[edit]

Hi, could I ask you not to add any more succession boxes to songs until this discussion has ended? Your edits may all have to be reverted. AnemoneProjectors 16:08, 21 December 2010 (UTC)

I've done now anyway. I just wanted to complete the 2010 UK No. 1 list which was incomplete with regard to the most recent ones and a few that had been missed along the way. I haven't seen a good argument yet for removing all this work which, for UK No. 1s, spans over a thousand articles (I haven't seen that many that have been missed).

Release dates of albums[edit]

FYI - Determining release dates for albums based on when the album first charted is considered original research as you are not getting this information from reliable sources but basing it on your own method of calculation. Please use reliable sources when changing release dates. --Starcheerspeaksnewslostwars (talk) 01:16, 9 March 2011 (UTC)

Sure, I guess it does come under those original research criteria, but having a date which is very likely to be correct but derived is better than one that is incomplete or clearly inaccurate as was the case with those I've replaced. Obviously, a direct source is preferable and if one can be found, it should be used. But, that's going to be difficult for compilation albums that old and released in only one country. Most sources publish the date of the first Saturday after the album charted, rather than the release date, and this require a simple calculation based on chart knowledge; if the album was listed in that chart, it was clearly available at least as early as the Monday preceding that chart date (12 days earlier). Unless it didn't chart in its first week, that date is also the release date.


Year songs categories[edit]

You do not need to add year songs categories to articles that are already listed in the sub-category Year singles categories as you did to 15 Minutes of Shame because once if it is listed in a sub-category it is already under the hierarchy of the parent category. Aspects (talk) 05:48, 28 July 2011 (UTC)

Thanks, I didn't realise it was a sub-category and Wikipedia:WikiProject Songs#Categories gives the impression both are needed. Gnu andrew (talk) 05:51, 28 July 2011 (UTC)

Category:Songs written by LMFAO[edit]

I have listed this category for deletion as songwriter categories are by songwriter, not band. If at some point there are articles for some or all members of the band I would wholeheartedly approve of the categories. Cheers. --Richhoncho (talk) 19:42, 29 July 2011 (UTC)

Ok, wasn't aware of this but makes sense. Thanks.

Wiki Loves Pride 2014[edit]

Hi Gnu. In case you are not aware, there is an upcoming campaign to improve coverage of LGBT-related topics on Wikipedia, culminating with an international edit-a-thon on June 21. See Wiki Loves Pride 2014 for more information. If you are interested, you might consider creating a page for a major city (or cities!) near you, with a list of LGBT-related articles that need to be created or improved. This would be a tremendous help to Wikipedia and coverage of LGBT culture and history. Thanks for your consideration, and please let me know if you have any questions! --Another Believer (Talk) 17:57, 13 May 2014 (UTC)
