Inmitation[edit]

Since when did I say you can copy me? Jkjk... Nahnah4 (talk | contribs | guestbook) 11:05, 26 December 2014 (UTC)

@Nahnah4: Whoops I'm so sorry Very sorry.gif However I have run out of ideas so that I had to imitate your style :) But I have credited you. So sorry anyway Very sorry.gif Simon (talk) 11:10, 26 December 2014 (UTC)
It's fine, but it still wrote "Merry Christmas" at the message. Why not change the words on the WikiLove to something else, and it isn't really necessary to say Who created it or stuff like that. I got the idea from User:Meaghan/Xmas, and partly also from User:Meaghan/Sunshine. So yeah, you can edit a little, and change a bit. Check out other WikiLove templates with the category Category:WikiLove templates, and mix everything together! You can reuse those from other users too, BTW.

Birthday?[edit]

Noticed you only added "1991" for birthdate, and that somehow automatically said "23 years, 0 months, and 0 days old". Out of curiosity, is December 27th your birthday? Snuggums (talk / edits) 20:00, 27 December 2014 (UTC)

@SNUGGUMS: Oh, yes, you got it right. SFriendly.svg Simon (talk) 02:06, 28 December 2014 (UTC)
In that case, hope you enjoyed :). You should probably include the specific date, otherwise it will always have the "0 months, and 0 days" part :P. Snuggums (talk / edits) 02:55, 28 December 2014 (UTC)

Chandelier (Sia song)[edit]

Please see WP:OWN. Also, your claim that it's better to avoid mentioning the number of YouTube views is a) an arbitrary inclusion criterion against Wikipedia policy and guidelines, and b) collides with material found in reliable, third-party sources. --82.136.210.153 (talk) 12:31, 1 January 2015 (UTC)

I understand, but there are no quality articles mention this. Simon (talk) 12:32, 1 January 2015 (UTC)
Of course there are. See, for example, Gangnam Style. In fact, most likely it's the opposite of what you write; it's probably mentioned in almost all good quality articles of songs that have a noteworthy number of views on YouTube. --82.136.210.153 (talk) 12:36, 1 January 2015 (UTC)

By the way, in my opinion it's perfectly fine to use YouTube as a primary source for the number of views. See, for example, the references used in the List of most viewed YouTube videos article. See also WP:PRIMARY ("reliable primary sources may be used in Wikipedia"). --82.136.210.153 (talk) 12:34, 1 January 2015 (UTC)

It happened on Gangnam Style because none of the experienced editors have taken their eyes over it for a long time. Btw, none of such sources, including Facebook or Twitter, rarely satisfy WP:RS. Simon (talk) 12:38, 1 January 2015 (UTC)
Now you're just making up things. Your "none of the experienced editors have taken their eyes over it for a long time" is just a random remark. Besides, what I wrote is true. Almost all good/featured quality articles about songs that have lots of views mention this. Baby (Justin Bieber song) ("Although the song received 2.1 million likes"), On the Floor ("YouTube video of all time with over 784 million views"), Waka Waka (This Time for Africa) ("garnering almost 730 million views as of August 2014"), and so on. --82.136.210.153 (talk) 12:43, 1 January 2015 (UTC)
And YouTube is a reliable primary source for the number of views because unlike "Facebook or Twitter" that you mention as "such sources", those views aren't written contributions by people but generated by software. --82.136.210.153 (talk) 12:45, 1 January 2015 (UTC)
I'm not making it up. See the revision history of "Baby" then you'll see it yourself. Anw, you can add YouTube source to mention how much views a video get to an article and then nominate it to GA, and see what happen. Simon (talk) 12:48, 1 January 2015 (UTC)

Norway gold certification - Christina Aguilera - Back to Basics.[edit]

Why did you erase the Back to basics gold certification in Norway from the article?--88marcus (talk) 18:04, 1 January 2015 (UTC)

@88marcus: The link was actually the Denmark certification, so I removed the information. SFriendly.svg Simon (talk) 02:32, 2 January 2015 (UTC)

Ok! Thank You! :) --88marcus (talk) 05:51, 2 January 2015 (UTC)

Christina - Bionic[edit]

Hello HĐ. There is a misunderstanding. Woohoo was a commercial single only in the United States while You Lost Me was served as the album's second single in Europe.Chronisgr (talk) 23:40, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

@Chronisgr: Could you please give me source please? I would be grateful if you do so. Thanks, Simon (talk) 10:16, 16 January 2015 (UTC)

Woohoo was never served to radio in Europe, while it was sent to radio as the album's second single in United States. You Lost Me was served as the second single in Europe and I Hate Boys in Australia. iTunes promo singles does not equate to commercial singles. That's a strategy that many labels have done in the past and will keep doing (see Sia, Marina and the Diamonds, Taylor Swift, Madonna et al).Chronisgr (talk) 01:20, 17 January 2015 (UTC)

@Chronisgr: "Woohoo" doesn't need radio release to be a commercial single in Europe (just like "Suit & Tie", it was only released to radio in Italy). Many other singles also adopt this kind, it doesn't need radio release ("Breathe Me", "Suit & Tie"...) Simon (talk) 04:55, 17 January 2015 (UTC)

Hurts Like Heaven[edit]

Hey there. As I pointed "pop" already stated from reliable sources are:

  • Pitchfork: "Coldplay‘s pure-pop ambitions"
  • Drowned in Sound: "all Eighties pop shimmer"

How do you think that the song is a pop song? 115.164.190.111 (talk) 14:17, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

Uhm, I am not very interested in this song. However, pop is acceptable if the genre is backed up by reliable sources. SFriendly.svg (talk) 14:21, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

Body Language GT[edit]

Hi Simon! Been a long time. I was wondering whether you could comment on the GT Nomination of Body Language. The nomination process seems to have stiffened and your comments could help reach consensus. Thanks, --WonderBoy1998 (talk) 16:41, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

Removing urls from book and journal citations[edit]

In your recent edits to Genie in a Bottle, you have removed urls from book and journal references. Is there any reason for this? Google Books is a good resource and allows readers and editors to verify the content without sourcing the book themselves. I'd also appreciate it if you'd leave edit summaries when you make significant content changes as you have done. Thanks, Melonkelon (talk) 03:55, 25 January 2015 (UTC)

@Melonkelon: I remembered that it was Adabow who told me that it is no need to include links in journal/newspaper references. (talk) 03:56, 25 January 2015 (UTC)
It's true that links are not required for journal/magazine/newspaper/book references, but that's because most of them are not available online. Just because it's not required doesn't mean it shouldn't be used if it's available. When you have copies of publications for free on Google Books, like Billboard, then I cannot see any reason not to include urls. I'm not sure what Adabow said, but I disagree with removing them. Thanks, Melonkelon (talk) 21:37, 25 January 2015 (UTC)
That's alright. I still think that it is quite unnecessary to include links in journal references. But if you like I can re-add them. (talk) 14:44, 26 January 2015 (UTC)
Why do you think it is unnecessary? Melonkelon (talk) 21:18, 26 January 2015 (UTC)
Well, just a personal idea, instead of URLs for verification of online sources, printed material can be verified without Internet-based URLs (well, because they are printed). (talk) 06:23, 27 January 2015 (UTC)
