User talk:Hometown Kid[edit]

Hello, Hometown Kid here, the new kid in town (wikipedia) lol. As you can see here, all the messages that I get for my contributions, some of them good, some of them ok, and the rest a bunch of bull crap which was sent from eo, but got rid of them. I finally realize there is no use for the united world chart on song articles, i figured that it's useless. I really need some help making the Danny Fernandes article, I know it has been deleted a lot of times, but we need to find reliable information on him without plagiarising from other sites, if you wanted to help then do so, but I am trying to make a request to unprotect the page so that I can craete it.

Dangerous[edit]

The song is Canadian hip hop mixed with R&B. Leave it at that. Blackjays1 (talk) 07:31, 9 August 2008 (UTC)

United World Chart[edit]

The point isn't that there isn't an article: the point is that the chart is unreliable. You could build a great, accurate article about the UWC, which would read something like The United World Chart is a chart that claims to report worldwide sales for songs. However, there is no evidence that it actually has access to sales data or uses sales data. No retailers or marketers are known to use the UWC in making decisions, and its figures are not reported by any reliable news sources. It appears to be used only by blogs and fansites. UWC charts would still be deleted from all articles. We point you at the AFD so that there is a record of our reasons. I still don't understand what your objection is. Why do you want to report the contents of an unreliable chart?Kww (talk) 21:29, 28 September 2008 (UTC)

I take out lots of charts, not just UWC. Whenever I see an article that references UWC, BrasilHot100, or the Bulgarian Top Singles, out they go. If you could find a reliable, well sourced worldwide chart, that would be great. If there was such a thing, I'd be all for reporting it. There isn't, you've been told there isn't, so putting it back in over and over and over is vandalism, because you are knowingly placing false information into Wikipedia.
As for me interfering in your conversation, no Wikipedia conversation is private. If you want privacy, take it to e-mail.Kww (talk) 21:52, 28 September 2008 (UTC)

Edit summaries[edit]

Information.svg Hello. Please don't forget to provide an edit summary, which wasn't included with your recent edit to Crush (David Archuleta song). Thank you. Aspects (talk) 16:59, 7 October 2008 (UTC)

I was using the Crush article as an example of not using edit summaries. Since you left a message on my talk page saying you do that later, you have provided an edit summary for only six of your 70 edits. You need to provide an edit summary for every edit you make. Aspects (talk) 00:56, 9 October 2008 (UTC)
Please start using edit summaries. Aspects (talk) 22:58, 9 October 2008 (UTC)

Crush (David Archuleta song)[edit]

If you feel that "hot shot debut" belongs in the article, you need to provide an explanation for the term so that readers understand what the article is saying. Also, the Billboard magazine needs to be linked only once in the table. Any more than once is overlinking. Aspects (talk) 00:59, 9 October 2008 (UTC)

Overlinking Billboard (magazine)[edit]

In a music chart using different Billboard charts, Billboard (magazine) needs to be linked only once. Any more than that and it is overlinking, such as what you recently did to Light On. Aspects (talk) 22:59, 9 October 2008 (UTC)

Please note as well that when you link Billboard, it does not direct to the magazine. You should pipe these as [[Billboard (magazine)|Billboard]]. And as said above, you only need to link the first reference of Billboard. --Wolfer68 (talk) 16:23, 29 October 2008 (UTC)
I have reverted the overlinking to Billboard on both Light On and Spotlight (Jennifer Hudson song). You have been asked before to not link to Billboard since that is an article about outdoor advertisements not the magazine that publishes the music charts. Also you have been asked before not to overlinking Billboard. It only needs to be linked once in the chart. Please take the advice from both mysefl and Wolfer68 and stop wrongly linking and overlinking Billboard. Aspects (talk) 14:34, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
Do you even read your user talk page? This edit, [1], less than forty minutes after I left you a message does both of the things I just talked about. Aspects (talk) 15:08, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
So you read your user talk page and you still continue to do the same edits, [2], over and over that other editors have told you not to do and why? That's worse than not even reading your talk page. Aspects (talk) 17:05, 31 October 2008 (UTC)
The point of Wikipedia is not to make edits you "think you can get away with," it is to work collaboratively with editors around the world to make the articles the best they can be. Now that two different editors have told you the way you are making your edits are wrong, will you please stop linking to [[Billboard]] and overlinking articles in the same table? Aspects (talk) 17:13, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

Please read the article for Billboard that you keep linking to, [3]. The article is for outdoor advertising. If you are going to link to the magazine Billboard you need to link to Billboard (magazine). This is the organization that releases the Billboard charts. You just need to pipe the link like this [[Billboard (magazine)|Billboard]]. Aspects (talk) 18:16, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

Fall Out Boy - "I Don't Care" citation tags[edit]

Please, stop removing the "citation needed" tags, those aren't only dates, as you said they were in your edit summary. They show the need of a citation to confirm the peaks on the unsourced charts. - JWhitt (talk) 00:01, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles[edit]

The Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles is in fact a component component chart. Component chart does not list all of the component charts. The Bubbling Hot 100 Singles is a chart which is used to calculate a more primary chart, in this case being the Billboard Hot 100. Please do not add this chart or any other component charts to articles. Thank you. DiverseMentality(Boo!) 21:07, 29 October 2008 (UTC)

Well it's still valuable information for song article, in case a song doens't chart on the Billboard Hot 100. It shows how how far or how close a song is from charting on the Billboard Hot 100. Hometown Kid (talk) 7:42, 29 October 2008 (UTC)

Per WP:CHARTS, you should only add component charts if the song doesn't reach any significant Billboard chart. DiverseMentality(Boo!) 02:29, 30 October 2008 (UTC)

Reckless Abandon (album)[edit]

Thanks for the message. Do you have an image file of the album cover? If so you can upload it at this page. And please leave my recent edits in place - they are correct English and the tone is more suitable for an encyclopedia. – ukexpat (talk) 00:57, 19 November 2008 (UTC)

Chicken Fried[edit]

Please don't link the chart names on Chicken Fried or any other song article. WP:CHART clearly shows that the chart names should not be linked in the table. Ten Pound Hammer and his otters • (Broken clamshellsOtter chirpsHELP) 15:40, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

Heartless (Kanye West song)[edit]

I must ask you not to remove sourced material without explanation, especially in the way you did, by replacing valid citations with links to fan-written blogs. (Ibaranoff24 (talk) 08:22, 30 November 2008 (UTC))

December 2008[edit]

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. It might not have been your intention, but your recent edit removed content from Human (The Killers song). When removing text, please specify a reason in the edit summary and discuss edits th at are likely to be controversial on the article's talk page. If this was a mistake, don't worry; the text has been restored, as you can see from the page history.

JD554 (talk) 18:58, 12 December 2008 (UTC)

You removed content by removing the two charts for Netherlands (which are both well cited). You also added the Canadian Hot 100 but it is not cited. Not all the charts are called Billboard xxx as you can see by following the following links: Hot Adult Top 40 Tracks and Hot Modern Rock Tracks. As you can see, they are produced by Billboard but it isn't part of the charts' names. Also adding {{sort|US|U.S.}} doesn't produce a link but allows the sorting to working properly by ignoring the dot. So, I will remove the Canadian chart as it is uncited and therefore violates Wikipedia's policy on WP:V and I will restore the charts for the Netherlands which are well cited. I will also remove Billboard from the chart names where it doesn't belong. I really don't see the point in having the Pop 100 and Hot Dance Club Play charts as they are only minor charts compared to the Hot 100 and Hot Modern Rock Tracks, but I'll concede to leave these in providing you don't remove well cited information. Doing so, is a violation of Wikipedia's policies and may result in your account being blocked. --JD554 (talk) 20:00, 12 December 2008 (UTC)

Shake That[edit]

Please provide an adequate citation per WP:RS illustrating that "Shake That" charted at number 6 on the Bubbling Under R&B/Hip-Hop Singles for Eminem discography. Until then, it really won't matter how many times you may have told me to stop removing the r&b/hip-hop songs chart position for Shake That. Do U(knome)? yes...or no 23:48, 12 February 2009 (UTC)

Simple Plan single[edit]

Please do not post unverified information claiming a new single for Simple Plan. If you are able to produce a reliable source, then of course please feel free to improve the articles. If not, please await some further announcement by the band.--Wehwalt (talk) 18:50, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

I've looked at the ref you have provided. It nowhere says that No Love is a single, merely that they have been playing it a lot. That does not equate with a single. In addition, CHUM-FM is what I believe they call chartspam. Please remove it yourself, or I suspect someone else will, given the number of eyes that look at these articles, I don't think it will stand. Thanks.--Wehwalt (talk) 19:54, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Andrew F[edit]

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Andrew F, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process because of the following concern:

Non-notable musician, fails WP:V and WP:NM.

All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because, even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. — Σxplicit 03:36, 5 April 2009 (UTC)

Deletion tags on images[edit]

Please don't just remove tags without addressing the issues. They are being put there for a good reason: you are not specifying which article the non-free images are for use in.

Please read the fair use rationale guidelines and the documentation for {{album cover fur}} to make sure that your images don't get tagged for deletion in future. If after reading both of these, you are still unsure about anything, get in touch with me and I'll try to help. Papa November (talk) 12:34, 7 April 2009 (UTC)

To Credit or Not To Credit?[edit]

That is the question...my argument in defense of crediting is that neither Wikipedia nor any of its pages is (or ever was) owned by any private corporation. I believe Wikipedia even has a policy on these things (WP:OWN). Therefore, no matter what any record company says, I think all contributors should be credited on Wikipedia (after all, we enforce capitalization rules that they don't)

(BTW, feel free to put this in the debate consensus section-want to get the community's opinion) Tom Danson (talk) 17:39, 28 April 2009 (UTC)

Well then I guess we should credit everyone that contributed to the single. Should we credit the producer and writers? Should we put Mike Jones featuring Nae Nae, and J.R. Rotem? Hometown Kid (talk) 14:47, 28 April 2009 (GMT)

  • Not the producer and/or writers-just those who provide vocals. The credited should be the ones that give vocals (I made an error in my previous statement, so this is the correction) Tom Danson (talk) 19:24, 28 April 2009 (UTC)
  • So, if there were to be single with just one artist and there were some background singers, should we include all of the background singers with their names. They provide vocals too. Hometown Kid (talk) 15:27, 28 April 2009 (GMT)
    • If a singer does lead hook vocals, (s)he should be credited regardless of what the label says (they don't own Wikipedia or any of its articles). As for the background vocals beyond that, then the label would decide. Tom Danson (talk) 06:08, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

Add RB chart to Alicia Keys Discography[edit]

Hello hometown: Please add a RB colum to the Alicia Keys Discography page. AK has had many #1 on the RBcharts. AK is more of a RB artist. Beyonce has the RB column on her discography page so I think RB colums are allowed. AK's positions on the RB charts easily verifiable from BB. I dont know how to do charts that is why I havent done it. I dont wanna ruin the page. Thanks 64.26.99.120 (talk) 21:30, 14 October 2009 (UTC)

I'm sorry, but I can't add another chart to the table because Explicit is going by the MOS:DISCOGS rules saying that there should be 10 maximum charts for discography pages. I added the Canadian Albums Chart there and he took it off after because there's already 10 charts there. So you should try explaining that to him since I'm not an administrator. Hometown Kid (talk) 20:05, 17 October 2009 (GMT).

If the rule is 10, why does beyonce discography have these 14 charts?

US / US R&B / US Dance / AUS / CAN / FRA / GER / IRE / NL / NZ / SUI / ISR / NOR / UK ? 64.26.99.120 (talk) 16:49, 20 October 2009 (UTC)

I read the DISCOGS page. The rule isnt 10. The SUGGESTION is 10. We are right to add RB chart per MOS:DISCOGS#Ignore_all_rules.

Therefore, if there is a reasonable justification for deviating from the above guidelines to most accurately or appropriately document an artist's body of work, then ignore all the rules and go with what's best for the article. It is our goal to provide information in the best way possible, so a strict adherence to the guidelines listed above may not always be the best way to accomplish our goals.

Just as Taylor Swift has US & Canada country charts on her disco page. 64.26.99.120 (talk) 16:58, 20 October 2009 (UTC)

Personal attacks[edit]

Please do not leave edit summaries like this, calling someone a retard. Not only is it a personal attack, it is an offensive term to use as it refers those those with mental disabilities. Comment on content, not on the contributor. — ξxplicit 21:57, 3 December 2009 (UTC)

Sorry, I just got heated up. Hometown Kid (talk) 18:02, 3 December 2009 (GMT)

March 2010[edit]

Looks like you got heated up again, judging from your edit summary from Rihanna discography. You were more likely dealing with a malicious act than mental retardation, but in any case it's always better to remain cool and respond appropriately. In neither case is using the word "retard" appropriate.

The appropriate response there was to revert all of the user's edits on the article, ideally in one operation. You can do that by going to the history page and selecting the vandal's last edit and the edit before the vandal's first one. You then Compare selected revisions, then click undo (this is an opportunity to check what you're doing), then save the change. When you do, of course, you include a civil edit summary, referring at most to the vandalism, not the vandal. This is also a good way to get all the garbage they left behind.

It's kind of odd seeing that rudeness from a user whose Talk page starts with, "BE POLITE". Stay cool! — JohnFromPinckney (talk) 19:23, 25 March 2010 (UTC)

Album reviews[edit]

How's it going, Kid? Just thought I'd give you a heads up; sites like RapReviews aren't considered notable on wiki. If you post a RapReviews article for Illmatic (for example), it will get removed because there are more well-established sites, magazines and newspapers, such as Allmusic. There's also a limit of 10 reviews per album. I added a RapReviews article to Fire and Glory, because I couldn't find any other reviews for it (that's a rare exception). Here's a list of notable reviewers (WP:ALBUM/REVSIT). Blackjays1 (talk) 17:50, 4 December 2009 (UTC)

I decided to put back those RapReviews reviews. Not too sure about the DX one though, I don't think it's notable enough. Blackjays1 (talk) 10:39, 3 March 2010 (UTC)


Why you don't think it's notable enough. I think they should stay just in case, because the reviews seem professional and really summarize and critique the albums properly. Ignore the user ratings on it. Hometown Kid (talk) 18:41, 3 March 2010 (GMT)

I'm not worried about the ratings. It's just that some Wiki users and admins are strict about it. I used to think it didn't matter what site to put there. But not long after Not 4 Sale came out, there were 10 reviews, and one day a user removed 7 of them. That's why I was saying it's probably not notable enough. Blackjays1 (talk) 03:13, 5 March 2010 (UTC)

You know what you're right. I've been looking at some various amount of reviews and ratings on HipHopDX, and they seem to be too inconsistent. One badly reviewed/rated album from all the other critics would somehow get a positive review/rating by HipHopDX. So you're right, the HipHopDX reviews isn't notable enough, we should start removing it from all wikipedia articles that have them. Hometown Kid (talk) 16:06, 10 March 2010 (GMT)

Tony Yayo's sales[edit]

Hello, Hometown Kid. I removed the sales figure you restored to Tony Yayo discography [4].

For examples (chosen at random), see E-40 discography, Public Enemy discography, EPMD discography, Fall Out Boy discography, Insane Clown Posse discography, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony discography, The Black Keys discography, etc., etc.. The type of label makes no difference; it's the type of album (studio, live, mixtape) that needs to be categorized. Look around and you'll see that I'm right. I can see that you're an enthusiastic editor here and that you love music—me too. I'm not interested in edit warring over this with you. Peace, TheJazzDalek (talk) 12:02, 28 February 2010 (UTC)

Undaground Legend[edit]

I find it really unlikely such an obscure album could go platinum. I removed that claim from that article, and it's not the first time I've done it there, either. Do you have any proof that album sold a million? Şłџğģő 16:58, 7 March 2010 (UTC)

I didn't claim that the album went platinum, it's a fact. It's on the riaa site (http://www.riaa.com/goldandplatinumdata.php?table=SEARCH). Search Lil Flip in the artist field, and under format choose album and you'll see the certifications. The album did go platinum according to the source, it doesn't lie. Hometown Kid (talk) 12:18, 7 March 2010 (GMT)
Make sure you don't insert specious claims like that without sourcing from now on. Thanks. Şłџğģő 05:33, 8 March 2010 (UTC)
The source was already there in the discography page. It was there in the first place, and before they were altered by some of the IP Users, so I went to the source and corrected them. Hometown Kid (talk) 12:18, 8 March 2010 (GMT)

Drake discography[edit]

The Drizzy Effect is not an official mixtape so "I Get Paper" is best left as a non-album song since unofficial mixtapes are not notable. Hot Revolver would be a good example as it was featured on 2008's Drought 6 but is known as a non-album single because that's not an official mixtape. Just a head's up.

Billboard Charts[edit]

It might interest you that there is an interesting discussion ongoing at Record Charts/Billboard Charts/Chart Names.

New billboard chart policy[edit]

As per consensus at WP:record charts there is a new guide to using Billboard Charts available at Billboard charts guide. Mainstream Top 40 (Pop Songs) (formerly known just as Pop Songs) is no longer deemed a component chart - there is no evidence to support this motion.Lil-unique1 (talk) 19:37, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

Juno Awards / Drake / "I'm Still Fly"[edit]

Next time you question what is or isn't a nomination, you had better check primary sources first, especially before you make edits such as thisDl2000 (talk) 01:38, 19 April 2010 (UTC)

I just thought it wasn't nominated, because it was a single and Rap Recording of the Year is usual for albums. It was announced already, just before Album of the Year. Drake's So Far Gone won the award, not "Still Fly". Hometown Kid (talk) 20:43, 19 April 2010 (UTC)

Billboard charts[edit]

I've noticed that you seem to be edit-warring over the inclusion of the word "Billboard" in the chart names in more than one article. I did a quick check, and can't see that you have made any posts to any talk page discussing the issue. There was a fairly long discussion on WT:Record charts, and the consensus was to remove "Billboard" from everything but the Billboard Hot 100 and Billboard Hot 200. If you object, please discuss it, don't just revert things.—Kww(talk) 05:36, 2 May 2010 (UTC)

For now just keep reverting that user's edits and he should stop eventually, if he doesn't than an administrator will deal with that user.

Distant Relatives[edit]

How does it being issued faster make the chart source more accurate? Dan56 (talk) 13:13, 16 July 2010 (UTC)

I'm not sure, but it makes sense since they both use Nielsen Soundscan, nothing really different when it comes to the methodology of their charts, it's just the top-25 charted albums thaT will cause a difference in chart data compared to Jam!, but billboard is the most reliable, all top-25 charted albums in Canada have been often used as references to source them rather than Jam!. Hometown Kid (talk) 09:28, 16 July 2010 (UTC)

If your not sure, then why did u use that for your reason in changing it. Id assume it being faster could mean they were clumsier, but neither of us would make sense then. I think Billboard made the mistake. But regardless of what we think, Jam is according to wikipedia "currently the only media outlet that publishes a comprehensive collection of the official Canadian record charts as compiled by Nielsen SoundScan and Nielsen Broadcast Data Systems". And its a Canadian website. So that makes sense. Dan56 (talk) 16:48, 16 July 2010 (UTC)

Drake discography Billboard ref[edit]

Hi, Kid. Thanks for digging up a source for "Successful", and for including a note in your summary for this edit to Drake discography; unfortunately, I can't figure out what you mean. What space, where, should I click in? I presume you mean somewhere on the Billboard page at http://www.billboard.com/#/charts/r-b-hip-hop-songs?chartDate=2009-10-03, but I don't know what "little space" you are referring to. Give me a hint and I'll revert my re-reversion of your reversion to my reversion of— aw, heck, I've lost my place. (So I've lost my place, and can't find your space.) You can answer here; I'm watching your page. Cheers, — JohnFromPinckney (talk) 04:01, 28 September 2010 (UTC)

Where you see "Successful", at the #3 position in the white space where the song title and artist name is. Click on that space and the other chart positions will show up under the song title, and artist name at the bottom right. Hometown Kid (talk) 11:47, 28 September 2010 (UTC)
Well, what the hell kind of stupid freaking horse-hockey is that! Good Lord, I hate the Billboard site. How are we supposed to know to click there? The cursor doesn't even change to a finger/hand. Holy crap. So, tell me: how did you know it was there? (I'll go over in a moment and fix up the Drake article as I said. I just haven't gotten to it yet.) — JohnFromPinckney (talk) 23:37, 28 September 2010 (UTC)

Sean Combs/It's All About the Benjamins[edit]

Hey there, I'm looking in Joel Whitburn's latest Top Pop Singles book (plus I remember it charting)... "It's All About the Benjamins" did chart on the Hot 100... two weeks at #2. Billboard did some weird thing at the time where A/B sides charted together (at the same position) but then they would only list the lead song on their chart. So for a few weeks "Benjamin" was listed, then other weeks "Been Around the World" was shown. Let me check Billboard books on Google to see if those issues are there. - eo (talk) 15:03, 29 September 2010 (UTC)

OK here we go... [5] issue is January 10, 1998, you'll have to scroll down to page 84 (lame) and then the following week, it switched to "Been Around", shown at #5 [6] (page 82), ultimately with that title hitting #4. I'm glad Billboard doesn't do this shit anymore. - eo (talk) 15:14, 29 September 2010 (UTC)

I don't think I need to explain myself in EVERY single edit, most of them are pretty obvious like when I'm just updating a chart position and so on, it's just a waste of time. Hometown Kid talk) 15:17, 24 October 2010 (UTC),
How totally #%@*!&* rude and thoughtless of you! How dare you presume to waste my time? You seem to be talking about your lack of an edit summary, when that wasn't the immediate question, but your attitude on that score just really calls for a response.
Look at this edit of yours on Nicki Minaj discography. What got changed? Well something got changed from an — to 9, and there was a 9 right before it, and a 23 before that. Now I can scroll through the page looking for 9's and 23's. It happens that you edited the section this time, rather than the whole page, so I can confine my scavenger hunt to the "As featured artist" table. Also, it seems that whatever song it is is on the Freeze Time album.
Found it! It's "2012 (It Ain't the End)". And the second 9 is in the last column, which is – let me check – the UK! This is great progress, because now I have the information which is the bare minimum you should have included in your edit summary: song and chart. Now I can verify the position 9 there. I can't tell if you're not making a mistake, or vandalizing the article, because you've left the edit summary empty, just like the vast majority of vandals do.
Having clicked on the [14] link I jump down to the refs list and find a Zobbel citation. My heart sinks. Going to the Zobbel page, my fears are confirmed: the page is from June of this year, and contains no mention of "2012".
Now I'm back to examining your edit summary for some clue about why you changed it. But being non-existent, your edit summary is clueless. A clueless edit summary implies a clueless edit, so I then take the additional bit of time to revert it. Of course, I explain my reversion, but my reversion and your original edit both appear in the history and on others' watchlists, so you've wasted not only my time, but yours and everybody else unlucky enough to watch an article you edit.
I cannot stress strongly enough my unhappiness that you could work on Wikipedia for so long and still not think it even minimally polite to do what is an obvious and easy way to communicate with the others here. We're supposed to be working collaboratively here, in case that hasn't occurred to you. And your statement about adding peaks, that "it's just a waste of time", is just classic selfishness. The 10 seconds you "save" by not entering a basic summary is a waste of a good 1–2 minutes per edit for other editors, multiplied by every one who looks at your edit, PLUS the waste of your time spent on the original edit, since reverted.
Now, Yves was actually asking this time about sourcing, which you have also failed to do, and not for the first time. I hope you don't think providing a reliable source is a waste of time. If you do, I'll crank up my efforts to see you blocked for the benefit of Wikipedia. Verifiability is a fundamental part of Wikipedia, and if you don't want to abide by it, you should cease editing. — JohnFromPinckney (talk) 03:07, 25 October 2010 (UTC)
You are not listening. After a message like this, I don't think it would be very wise to make the same edit and still not source it. Do you not understand Wikipedia's policies on verifiability? If not, that's perfectly fine, but you should not contribute with unsourced edits without doing so. And feel free to ask and JohnFromPinckney or I will surely be more than happy to explain it.

Edit summaries[edit]

Information icon.svg

Hi there. When editing an article on Wikipedia there is a small field labeled "Edit summary" under the main edit-box. It looks like this:
Edit summary text box

The text written here will appear on the Recent changes page, in the page revision history, on the diff page, and in the watchlists of users who are watching that article. See m:Help:Edit summary for full information on this feature.

Filling in the edit summary field greatly helps your fellow contributors in understanding what you changed, so please always fill in the edit summary field. If you are adding a section, please do not just keep the previous section's header in the Edit summary field – please fill in your new section's name instead. Thank you. Yves (talk) 20:06, 21 October 2010 (UTC)

Since when was the lack of edit summaries a violation, honestly that's retarded. Hometown Kid (talk) 16:41, 21 October 2010 (UTC)
It's not a violation, but not using them is not communicating, which is a violation. And I don't understand how this is related to mental disabilities. Yves (talk) 20:46, 21 October 2010 (UTC)
Using edit summaries are great for explaining what you're doing, especially if an edit can be controversial if not explained well. It helps other editors by not having to review your edits on a regular basis. It's strictly a courtesy, and there's no violation of any policy or guideline. On a side note, nice job being on top of peak positions for songs. I've seen you plenty at Miguel (singer) and you always beat me to it. Face-smile.svgξxplicit 19:31, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

Bruno Mars[edit]

Please stop repeatedly adding unreliable sources to articles. Thanks. Yves (talk) 20:46, 30 October 2010 (UTC)

It's not an unreliable source. Your reason stating; "a website that calls the Billboard Hot 100 the "Billboard Top 200" is not a reliable source" ain't sufficient enough, how does that make the source unreliable. This source is being used multiple articles such as Eminem discography, How I Got Over, Rick Ross discography, I Am Not a Human Being, I Am the West, Chiddy Bang: The Preview, Thank Me Later, Wake Up!, Flockaveli, Man on the Moon: The End of Day, The Darkside Vol. 1 and a few more. It's a useful source, so stop repeatedly removing it because that source is going stay where it belongs. Hometown Kid (talk) 16:59, 30 October 2010 (UTC)
That's all WP:OTHERSTUFF. And being WP:USEFUL is not a valid reason for its inclusion. The website does not have a good record for accuracy and fact-checking: in fact for the album review of the exact same record, it incorrectly lists "The Lazy Song" as "Lazy Day" twice, "Our First Time" as "First Time", and "Marry You" as "Marry Me", as well as referring to the Billboard Hot 100 as the "Billboard Top 100". No indication is given to official sales figures, and only official figures from record companies or Nielsen SoundScan are used. Yves (talk) 21:27, 30 October 2010 (UTC)
So because of typos and errors is the reason for you thinking the source is unreliable? Also about the sales figures, you're right indeed, but I'm pretty sure that they're getting that data from a useful source, I don't think they would actually make up the weekly sales figures before posting them, they seem to be accurate even though they're not indicated. Hometown Kid (talk) 18:09, 30 October 2010 (UTC)
Yes. Errors like these show inaccuracy, carelessness and a lack of concern for reliable fact-checking. A reliable news source should have its articles thoroughly reviewed. If they have typos in chart names and song details, who's to say they don't have typos in sales figures? One doesn't know that. Yves (talk) 22:17, 30 October 2010 (UTC)
Wikipedia:Reliable sources/Noticeboard/Archive 33#HipHopDX, HipHopDX is not considered an unreliable source. All publications and websites make mistakes from time to time (have you seen Billboard in the past few months?). Mistakes do not correlate with unreliability. — ξxplicit 22:32, 30 October 2010 (UTC)

Melanie Fiona[edit]

Melanie Fiona is an RB artist. I think in her charts there should be a US RB column (instead of or in addition to ?). This is a better representation of her success or failure. Her song It Kills Me was #1 for a 2months/8wks on the [US RB charts], but currently only indiactes that the song peaked at #43: that is the general hot 100 chart. Other RB artists like Keyshia Cole, Beyonce, and Alicia Keys have the RB column. Please help do this. Thanks. 69.140.210.255 (talk) 14:43, 22 November 2010 (UTC)

Tracy Chapman discography[edit]

The BVMI certifications are awarded alternately, so Gold, Platinum, 3x Gold, 2x Platinum, 5x Gold, 3x Platinum, 7x Gold, 4x Platinum, etc. It is very possible that an album once got 3x Platinum, but then has sold much more later and then awarded 9x Gold. This is in fact the case here. Observe this link: "Gold-/Platin-Datenbank (Tracy Chapman; 'Tracy Chapman')" (in German). Bundesverband Musikindustrie.  The album won Gold and Platinum on 1988 when released, followed by 3x Gold and 2x Platinum in 1989. Then it won 5x Gold and 3x Platinum in 1993. In 2001 it was probably re-released, and collected 7x Gold and 4x Platinum. Only in 2010 did it win its final 9x Gold. Impressive. --Muhandes (talk) 06:55, 2 December 2010 (UTC)

Wiz Khalifa discography[edit]

Hello,

I am that "pesky annoying IP User" who kept reverting the edits and I understand your concern for the Wiz Khalifa discography page when I indeed was only trying to put forth truthful facts but at the same time have never edited on Wikipedia before. I apologize for any annoying or distraction re-edits that this might have caused you and unlike other immature individuals I realize what I have been doing and only wish to continue forth by only providing new (Guest appearances, Videos & Tours) when they present themselves.

My next 2 edits would be:

|"Young, Wild & Free" |Snoop Dogg featuring Wiz Khalifa |High School

& *2011: The Green Carpet Tour

P.S. I only edited the "Gold" certification for the single due to reading a direct tweet from the artist's personal Twitter account; http://www.hiphopweekly.com/100303-newsite/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/Fullscreen-capture-242011-21728-PM.bmp.jpg

re: Trina[edit]

Hey, I've blocked that user. A couple of things: leave warnings when you see vandalism. It really helps to justify a block when an admin can see that a vandal has been warned. Bookmark this page: Wikipedia:Template messages/User talk namespace/Multi-level templates. You do not have to be an admin to leave a warning. It only takes a minute. Also, if this dude is creating multiple sockpuppets, let someone know or report it at Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations. Lastly, be careful about edit summaries like this: [9]. I know that vandals are a total fucking pain in the ass and its easy to get frustrated, but the last thing you want is for a warning about WP:CIVIL to be given to you when your goal is to warn the vandal. Anyway, if he pops up again let me know or report him. Later. - eo (talk) 19:21, 6 March 2011 (UTC)

Michelle Branch discography[edit]

Regarding Broken Bracelet, just because it was released on an independent record label, that doesn't mean it has to be in its own section. I thought it was an EP until you said it wasn't in your edit summary, so I moved it in with the studio albums. Also, I didn't mean to leave the "Undid revision...." as my edit summary for the last edit I made to the discography. I just forgot to change it.

Edits to 50 Cent discography[edit]

I suppose I'd better explain a few things, and why I reverted your edits.

I actually created the Scribd document that you're using as a citation (the author name: Rufus Spivey Green - reverse the five letters in my user name and you'll notice something...). As I'm not a subscriber of Billboard, I don't have access to the official database that they store all of the chart tables on. Thus, I compiled that list from an unconfirmed version of the chart that was circulating on various music forums, and published it with a reference to the Billboard.biz search page, presuming it correct. However, during the period in early July when accessing the database was open to all, I checked the Bubbling Under chart for the week in question, and the song was not present: otherwise, the chart was exactly the same, except for the addition of a new song (with a name I cannot remember) which had presumably been left out on the leaked version, but that relegated the song off the chart. Once I actually made a search for "Let's Get It In" on the Billboard.biz website here, it states that the song did not "Bubble Under" (except on the R&B/Hip-Hop chart, which is already listed in the discography). As this is the truly official source, we must go by this one. I have changed your edits back again, although I can understand why you did them. Please do not change them back again.

Oh, and a word about your changing of the Before I Self Destruct album sales. Although again I can understand the motive, HipHopDX cannot be used as a source for album sales as it has been proven that their data has had inaccuracies in the past: this is why only the first week sales were listed, as they were the only official numbers that I could find.

Thanks for reading. Although I appreciate the effort of you doing the edits, they are not entirely appropriate. Please do not change them back.

October 2011[edit]

Please do not add or change content without verifying it by citing reliable sources, as you did to Rihanna discography. Please review the guidelines at Wikipedia:Citing sources and take this opportunity to add references to the article. Thank you.

Kid, you're making me crazy. They say "Don't template the regulars", but you're so difficult to work with I figure I might as well throw another template on your Talk page; I fully expect you to simply ignore it anyway. In your edit here you changed the US peak for "We Found Love" from 7 to 6. You added no new sources, you failed to check the sources already referenced, and you neglected, as usual, to provide an edit summary. Then you left, having damaged yet another Wikipedia article and leaving it for others to dissect and repair. I beg you to stop editing until you are ready to provide valid references, an edit summary, or (ideally) both. You eagerness is appreciated, but I'm starting to see your participation as an obstacle to the efficiency of Wikipedia. Further behavior like this will incite me to take deliberate steps to have you blocked for the benefit of the project. Please make an effort to cooperate. — JohnFromPinckney (talk) 23:35, 20 October 2011 (UTC)

Please do not add unsourced content, as you did to Usher discography. This contravenes Wikipedia's policy on verifiability. If you continue to do so, you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia. But then, you've already been told about this. — JohnFromPinckney (talk) 00:36, 26 October 2011 (UTC)

More[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg Hello, Hometown Kid. I'm not going to throw another template at you, because I don't want to further aggravate you or escalate the situation. However I do want to explain something you still don't seem to understand, and to point out a couple of other things.

When you add some new fact to an article, like the claim that "Without You" reached #7 on the Hot 100, you have an obligation to supply references to your source for the new info. That makes sense, because of all the people on the planet, you're the one person who knows exactly where you found the information. You've got the information right there in your hands; so add the citation explaining where you got it. Somebody who doesn't know or understand that this is required is called a newbie. After all this time here and so many contributions you're certainly no newbie. Somebody who knows about it but doesn't do it might well be called lazy. Lazy or rude.

Speaking of lazy (not coincidentally), I don't like being called names like that, and your edit summary was qute misplaced for both of these reasons. Please check your own behavior before accusing other people of deficiencies. In any case, I work hard on WP, and a lot of extra effort goes into checking your edits and then having to spend time correcting, expanding or reverting them, and explaining whyat I did and why in my edit summary. I'm hardly lazier than you, Kid.

And then there's your insult above. Wikipedia has a rule about No personal attacks; in fact it's one of the Five Pillars. I hope you won't fall afoul of this again, but if you do insult me again I'll probably want to involve an admin to look at your behavior.

By now I'd hope you've noticed that we're here not only to build an encyclopedia, we're here to do it together. That means that ignoring other contributors, being rude to other editors, or hindering their efficiency is counterproductive to the project. I've tried to explain how important this is, but I don't seem to be communicating it well. Because you make so many edits on Wikipedia, I assume you care about the project. Your useful additions are very much appreciated. However, when you make it all more difficult for us by forgetting new references (or deleting old ones) and failing to provide edit summaries explaining what you're doing, you hurt the project more than help it. I hope that matters to you. — JohnFromPinckney (talk) 06:42, 27 October 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Frank-Ocean-XOYO.jpg[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:Frank-Ocean-XOYO.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a non-free file with a clearly invalid licensing tag; or it otherwise fails some part of the non-free content criteria. If you can find a valid tag that expresses why the file can be used under the fair use guidelines, please replace the current tag with that tag. If no such tag exists, please add the {{non-free fair use in|article name that the file is used in}} tag, along with a brief explanation of why this constitutes fair use of the file. If the file has been deleted, you can re-upload it, but please ensure you place the correct tag on it.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Mosmof (talk) 03:38, 17 April 2012 (UTC)

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at Berzerk (song) shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

To avoid being blocked, instead of reverting please consider using the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. See BRD for how this is done. You can post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection. Sorry man nothing personal, but you have made four reverts in the last 24 hours, just discuss it. STATic message me! 01:25, 4 October 2013 (UTC)
