Talk here if you want! --Grinder0-0 18:43, 24 August 2006 (UTC)
Not sure if it is you that originally posted the Glenn Tipton article but it was incorrect. I joined and edited accordingly and just found my edits were reversed back to the false details. I have reinserted them but I fear an edit war coming.
If it isn't you, please can you advise as to how I go about warning the editor 188.8.131.52 or locking the page?
If you are the original author/re editor, please can you liaise with me so I can point out the inaccuracies. It isn't even a matter of opinion as I have hard data - books and interviews with Glenn himself - that verify my edits and disproves what was before (and subsequently reinstated).
About the wacken bands.. If only billed artist should be listed, why are there other metal battle bands in the list like Brazil's Torture Squad? All the bands from the battle did play on the festival... —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 21:06, 6 September 2007 (UTC)
- I didn't know they were listed there as well, and I think that the battle of the bands should not be listed in the line up because they are not listed in the official billing, but maybe they could be placed in the article in another section, if they lived up to Wikipedia's notability standards. This should really be discussed on the article's discussion page. Grinder0-0 14:13, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

External links to interviews on band pages were listed to aid in research on those bands and/or people. Not for promotion. The links can also be used as sources. I see you deleted ALL my links to as you say "sites with which you are affiliated". So why not delete links to people's personal websites with photos? Or to other sites with interviews? If your edit is to make sense then edit ALL personal links. When I use Wikipedia to research bands I'll be interviewing, I find it extreemly useful to see what other interviewers have asked so I don't ask the same questions. Interviews can also be used as future sources. I will be re-adding my links.--Supercharger5150 22:09, 8 September 2007 (UTC)
Deletions of other links were made in accident, by cutting rather than copying- and I returned to those and tried to fix it. I'm new to all this code stuff. I'm not some internet nerd. I don't have the time or the desire to start some argument with you. We have varying opinions. External links to interviews and tour diarys are all valid.--Supercharger5150 20:33, 9 September 2007 (UTC)
No, I just don't want to go back and forth for days or months on the subject.--Supercharger5150 22:28, 17 September 2007 (UTC)
Welcome to the WikiProject Guitarists! Take the time to browse around all of the projects work pages and feel free to comment on anything you think might require attention(or repair) Cheers and take care! Anger22 (Talk 2 22) 17:44, 8 January 2007 (UTC)

I did not remove your names when I re-added mine, I swear, but if that's what the history says...so be it. But know this: I didn't do it on purpose. It must've been a mistake. I apologize in advance, and sorry for causing you trouble. Thanks, --Tohru Honda13Talk•Sign here 19:06, 13 January 2007 (UTC)
- Tsk...I think I know what happened. She reverted her name back on the list. Arjun 19:16, 13 January 2007 (UTC)
To say Wikipedia's policy about images (Fair Use) is complicated is an understatement. With regards to screenshots(or album covers for that matter) it doesn't matter how well sourced they are...it matters what they are used for within the article itself. A screenshot can only be used within specific text reference(critical commentary) about the video from which the screenshot was taken. Likewise album covers can't be used unless they are either in an article about the album itself, or ensconced within text directly relating to the album. I tried to shade the policy once by simply putting a caption stating where the screenshot originated from but it was a no go. They are definitely taboo in infoboxes. I gave up trying to include images in articles a long time ago because of Wiki's "fair use" and "replaceable fair use" policies. "Replaceable fair use" essentially means...if the subject is still alive, the you have the ability to go and take a picture of that person yourself instead of using "Promotional photos" from the artist's website(or where ever). If you try to justify adding a "replaceable promo shot" beacause you've seen them in other articles....it just means the Wiki-photo checkers haven't made it to that article yet to remove to unfair image. Hope that helps. If you have any other questions, the editor who rm'd the screenshot from the Friedman article (Moe) is an expert on Wikipedia's Fair Use policy and can probably explain in much more depth than I can about how it works. Cheers!Anger22 (Talk 2 22) 20:13, 13 January 2007 (UTC)
Yes, I am the creator of that Everytime you Masturbate, God kills a kitten image... that info used to be in the article, and has even survived an afd because others agreed that it is verifiable information. Unfortunately, now it seems that it is no longer verifiable, despite all the "offline" knowledge regarding this. My name has been removed from the article. Despite the fact that I know the truth of the information, I support removing it, since it is unverifiable at this time, and this is Wikipedia policy. Thanks. Tzepish 16:59, 22 April 2007 (UTC)
Marty Friedman Article
Okay, i dont know how going about refencing his tv show Rock Fujiyama. I live in Japan so ive watched the tv show weekly. if you could, give me a list of things that do need to be refenced and i will try to find a proper source. he said in one episode that he is no religion because theres too much hassle behind all of it. i also talk to him sometimes when hes around in tokyo. i cannot refence these talks because they are personal, and i dont believe he would like it. i have a live marty photo i am uploading, if not proper, please tell me why, i hate going to these confusing wiki help pages. thanks sooo much!!

- The problem is that no original research is allowed in Wikipedia, that means that it has to be verifiable. I have now added a "to-do list" to Marty Friedman, you can view it at Talk:Marty_Friedman_(guitarist)/to_do or go to the article, click "discussion" and there it is at the top.

Why do you keep edititing/deleting loads of stuff off the Dean Guitar pages? --KingPie01 18:39, 17 July 2007 (UTC)
- I removed material that didn't reflect a neutral point of view. For example, stating a guitar is famous, and praising the guitar and Dean brand is what really made the articles bad. Grinder0-0 18:15, 26 July 2007 (UTC)
The WikiProject Guitarists Newsletter
Hey everyone! It's been quite a while since the last newsletter went out but it's time to tune up those guitars, set the amps to 11, and rock out a bit. Or for us old guys, put on the fingerpicks and set the amp to 3. A lot of people have been laboring away at guitar articles and their efforts are to be applauded. If you haven't edited in a while, why not pick an article from Category:Stub-Class guitarist articles and expand it? Or better yet, pick one from the article requests and create it. More tasks can be found on the main project page in the WikiProject Guitarists open tasks box.
I went through the member list and moved anyone who hasn't edited a guitar article in two months to the inactive section. If you're getting this newsletter, it means you are still in the active list. See you around --Spike Wilbury ♫ talk 21:47, 18 July 2007 (UTC)

Fender Wikiproject Proposal
- What? Grinder0-0 08:05, 4 October 2007 (UTC)
Actually they won the case. They legally HAVE to use the Oliver/Dawson part of the title to differentiate, but they also have the legal right to the Saxon name as claimed. It is officially a form of Saxon. Nothing anyone can do about it. That's why the official website and myspace still call it that.
What perhaps got you confused that despite the official title being O/D Saxon, they were frequently being billed as Saxon. THAT has been forbidden.
Any musical venture by two former members of a band as historically important as Saxon should be allowable. Let alone two founding members and another former member. See Wishbone Ash and Martin Turner's Wishbone Ash for an example of it working. L.A. Guns is another, though they both use the same name which is a little different. (The Elfoid 22:37, 18 October 2007 (UTC))
Until that page exists it should the on the Saxon page. I hope to get it done sometime, if no one else does. But at least where it is now, Saxon editors can begin to lavish attention on it. It's a short term solution. I will be making a page, if no one does sooner. (The Elfoid 23:53, 18 October 2007 (UTC))
The WikiProject Guitarists Newsletter
Hello all! Time for the next installment of the WikiProject Guitarists newsletter. I recently went through and trimmed the member list again to remove inactive participants. I haven't been too active recently because I'm finishing a Master's degree but I'll have some more free time coming up. I will probably spend some time cleaning up equipment articles since many of them read like adverts or contain no useful information.
We have a lot of great people working on the project, including professional guitarists and even luthiers. We have the potential to write a lot of great articles. If you are looking for something to do, see the open tasks on the main project page or see the column to the right for specific suggestions. --Spike Wilbury ♫ talk 23:30, 18 December 2007 (UTC)
