scarlet lettering user creme de la creme[edit]

It is inappropriate to label every recent utterance by user:La crème de la crème on talk pages with a link to the sockpuppet investigation you participated in about that user. Unless you have some reason to believe that the sockpuppet investigation is somehow relevant to the discussion, all the link-label accomplishes is to mark the user as vaguely suspicious. So if there is evidence that sockpuppetry is occuring on that page then you should make some mention of it and link to the investigation, if there isn't then you should leave it out completely. I recommend you remove the links from all applicable pages. - Metal lunchbox (talk) 12:51, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) To me, it seems valuable to know when the remarks in a Talk page discussion (especially a currently active discussion such as a requested move) may be from a sockpuppet of a banned user. It invites investigation of that question and helps determine what weight to put on such remarks. The person closing a discussion thread would presumably take that information into account. It also may encourage, when appropriate, keeping the discussion open until the investigation has a clear outcome. It may also be worth mentioning that this is not a discussion of old edits and some stale investigation that someone participated in at some point in distant Wikipedia history. This is about edits made within the last week, and a sockpuppet investigation that was just filed three days ago that remains marked as open, and all comments made so far in that discussion have supported the notion that this user is likely to be a banned sock. —BarrelProof (talk) 20:38, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
User:BarrelProof, thanks, yes. I replied to Metal.lunchbox on User talk pointing out the guideline re (normally) removing posts by community-banned users, a guideline unrelated to pinning a red 'A' for adultery on Hester Prynne. In ictu oculi (talk) 03:03, 16 September 2014 (UTC)

DRN; Gospel of Matthew[edit]

No, like I said, I am basically a lay person. The issue is that even minority or FRINGE theories need some explanation if they are notable. Undue weight can lead to them buried in footnotes or separate articles, but they still need some mention in the overview of the topic. Andrevan@ 02:45, 18 September 2014 (UTC)
The big problem seems to be the treatment of the secular Maurice Casey. Andrevan@ 03:19, 18 September 2014 (UTC)
Why? Seems to be consistent with treatment of many other non-developed theses. In academic religious studies 1 person theories need to at least require a measure of validation and notability by accumulating some collegiate peer support and become a "school" developing the idea. Typically such a process bears fruit within a decade, in this case that isn't evident. That's the difference between a minority idea and a 1 person idea. As far as I can judge Casey's thesis looks to not have attracted support to become a major stream that deserves representation along with the main streams where dozens of scholars have aligned with each thesis. While it is effectively a 1 person idea it remains specific to the 1 scholar bio, not the topic field as a whole. In ictu oculi (talk) 03:48, 18 September 2014 (UTC)

One Wonderful Day[edit]

I know I've contacted you about this issue before, but... You moved a page back in April from a normal title to a disambiguated title, but, since then, the normal title has just pointed to the disambiguated title. This is pretty pointless- if you're going to create a dab page, go ahead and create it (and correct any dablinks this creates), but, if not, you should probably move the page back. J Milburn (talk) 21:32, 19 September 2014 (UTC)

Same for Yes/No, which you moved back in June. J Milburn (talk) 21:34, 19 September 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, I'd forgotten about the second and fixed it. The problem with the 1st, creating a dab for the Sondheim song, is that it should really redirect to the Sondheim musical rather than be a dab. I guess no alternative. In ictu oculi (talk) 00:34, 20 September 2014 (UTC)
Sure, redirect to the musical and put in a hatnote. That's fine if it's the most sensible option, but the current situation is just silly. J Milburn (talk) 18:12, 21 September 2014 (UTC)

Shirley (Dutch singer)[edit]

Well found this on accident (never heard of her till today), but I just helped out an un openhanded it (even if it wasn't marked as one as it linked to the name Shirley) as I found her actual name has been linked to other pages!

I just wanted to make sure I got the whole primary topic thing straight. So a friend of mine creates an article for Ese Hombre as a collaboration with each other.

Yes, seems to be the case per WP:SONGDAB where other songs "exist", though exist may not be enough if the main song is a Lady Gaga etc. song. This isn't, looks fine. In ictu oculi (talk) 05:00, 22 September 2014 (UTC)

Johnny Trí Nguyễn[edit]

I was wondering if I could get your help on something, since I noticed that you've contributed a lot to Vietnamese topics on Wikipedia. I recently noticed that the page for the actor Johnny Tri Nguyen was deleted for a lack of notability. Disregarding the fact that the user who nominated that page for deletion seemed to have a personal agenda with many of his edits, I find this (and the discussion on the deletion page) quite annoying for several reasons. They dismissed him based on his minor stuntwork in the US and a lack of English press coverage, but I thought Wikipedia was an international website. Anyone who has followed Vietnamese entertainment in the past 10 years knows he is one of the biggest movie stars in Vietnam, and I even recall international press mentioning him when talking about the impact of Viet Kieu on Vietnam's film industry. There are thousands of pages for major stars of foreign countries, yet I get the feeling that the people who voted to delete the article did so based on a bias against developing countries, as if "Oh Vietnam's so poor and insignificant, who cares?". I don't know if I'm overreacting as I'm not even really a big fan of his, but I'm just baffled that one of Vietnam's biggest stars is deemed "not notable".Khocaon (talk) 23:43, 25 September 2014 (UTC)

Thank you so much!Khocaon (talk) — Preceding undated comment added 00:42, 26 September 2014 (UTC)
Do you by any chance think there should be a disambiguation page for "Johnny Nguyen", as it is it goes to the soccer player's page and he's a lot less well known.Khocaon (talk) — Preceding undated comment added 06:08, 26 September 2014 (UTC)
Khocaon, well spotted, again. I've moved the French footballer out of the way. All five incoming links were actually for the actor, so I've redirected it to the actor. Unless there's a third Johnny Nguyen a dab page isn't justified. In ictu oculi (talk) 10:14, 26 September 2014 (UTC)
Completely baffled by MDtemp's response on his page. I remember reading that deletion entry and seeing how every editor who voted to delete confirmed that there were no references to prove his notoriety, yet all it took us was a few minutes on google and we found sources in English from major American publications. This is all a moot point as the article is undeleted, but it just annoys me how people fail to take accountability for carelessness.Khocaon (talk) 20:01, 15 October 2014 (UTC)

Mexico en la Piel[edit]

I have a favor to ask. Currently Mexico En La Piel links to an album by Luis Miguel, no doubt a very popular album. But the album is just a collection of standard Mexican including the song the album is named after. So I was wondering if you could look anything on Google Books about the original song for "Mexico en la piel", since readers would only get directed to the Luis Miguel album and I'm pretty sure it's not a primary topic if I'm not mistaken. Thanks in advance, Erick (talk) 23:42, 15 October 2014 (UTC)

Diacritics, oh yeah[edit]

Check this out, they include diacritics for place names in Portugal and Vietnam. Last time, certain someone demanded to remove diacritics because he gave sources from the press/newspapers to justify his argument. Well, as we know, in the press, they use like that is cuz the convenience in typing. But Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, it needs to have full native spellings except for Anglicize/common names. ༆ (talk) 19:16, 19 October 2014 (UTC)

P-MODEL and CAPS[edit]

Hey. About the CAPS thing: After reading tons of articles in Japanese (where stuff like album/song titles are rendered in either the way they were typeset or in katakana) I've accustomed to spelling certain titles in ALL CAPS ("P-Model" always looks kinda weird to me), I also thought artistic intent (the titles of "Potpourri" & "Perspective" weren't rendered in caps, as well as latter cases were standard capitalization and CAPS are mixed together, so I'd say stuff like capitalization was paid attention to) would be tolerated. Can't a message (something like "the titles of this album and its songs are stylized in all caps") be included on top of the album articles? Wunkt2 (talk) 15:42, 24 October 2014

Hi Wunkt2, having copyedited a P-Model album article last month, I'd like to chime in and suggest reading Wikipedia:Manual_of_Style/Japan-related_articles#Article_titles. Putting a stylization phrase in the lead sentence would be okay, but not throughout the article. -AngusWOOF (talk) 21:49, 24 October 2014 (UTC)
User:Wunkt2, please see as User:AngusWOOF suggests. The thing is that English Wikipedia is written in English not Katakana and needs to follow English capitalization. You need to go through all the articles were you have written CAPS mid sentence and correct to WP:CAPS. Thanks. In ictu oculi (talk) 23:31, 24 October 2014 (UTC)
Hello AngusWOOF. The kind of message I was thinking about was something along the lines of the message on top of Are We Not Men? We Are Devo! (by the way, you did a really good job with your editing, now I've gotten some more info on the album in question and am filling in on a couple points); after I finish this up, I'll through the other articles I created and standardize the capitalization.

Listen & Learn[edit]

Hi! Can I ask why you moved the page Listen & Learn to Listen & Learn (Hexstatic album). As far as I can tell, we have no other topic by that name and as of now the normal title redirects to the disambiguated version. Thanks!--Yaksar (let's chat) 22:50, 26 October 2014 (UTC)

Hi, didn't get round yesterday to creating a dab. I moved it because of the many and various other topics for Listen and Learn and Listen & Learn, several of which are also arguably albums, in the sense of being recordings. But seeing as those "albums" are educational tapes happy to remove artist name if that will help readers. I've fixed the template redirect. In ictu oculi (talk) 00:20, 27 October 2014 (UTC)
Albums and tapes seem similar enough that if the tapes are a notable topic the current title with the artist name makes sense. Cheers, Yaksar (let's chat) 00:25, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

RM request[edit]

Hey! I noticed that a fair few of the moves you've been boldly making have been reverted in cases where they may be the only other title with a Wikipedia article at that exact name. As these lead to situations where there are either disambiguation pages with only one active link, or undisambiguated titles that end up just redirecting to a disambiguated one, I understand why they've been found controversial. Even in cases where these sorts of moves do make sense in my personal opinion, there's certainly been quite a bunch where the inclusion of a definite or indefinite article or even a change in punctuation has been deemed sufficient to distinguish titles. Therefore, may I ask that you put these sorts of moves (primary topic moves where either articles are slightly different in titling OR there are currently no other existing articles at the title) in an RM in the future? Thanks--Yaksar (let's chat) 09:59, 7 November 2014 (UTC)

Hi Yaksar, yes one editor has been reverting - which is fine: I edit allowing a gap for WP:BRD if needed. But I respectfully disagree with your view of disambiguation as you have expressed in Talk:The Wife, I believe this is contrary to WP:DISAMBIGUATION and WP:CRITERIA and not the norm of the encyclopedia. WP:DISAMBIGUATION states that we disambiguate by topics not by article titles. We are not helping readers by directing them exclusively to ephermeral entertainment products when there are a range of more notable topics.

No problem, those two articles have been at odds with WP:NCM since 2010... In ictu oculi (talk) 23:03, 18 November 2014 (UTC)
Sorry to bug- I'm not sure if you've done what you intended to do yet, but we still have the "good" title redirecting to the bad one. If we're not going to have an article at the good title, it should either be a dab or a redirect to a dab. J Milburn (talk) 17:11, 23 November 2014 (UTC)
I started on it, there were a forest of repeating links, the what links here doesn't update quickly after template fixes. These laborious jobs are an inevitable product of WP:NCM which in effect guides to make ambiguous pipelinks with no thought to generic song titles reoccuring later. It isn't the end of the world however to have an ambiguous redirect redirect to a guideline compliant title. In ictu oculi (talk) 17:15, 23 November 2014 (UTC)
"It isn't the end of the world however to have an ambiguous redirect redirect to a guideline compliant title." No, but it's not the end of the world to have an article at a slightly more ambiguous title than is ideal, either. If you're going to have the ambiguous title redirect to one of the disambiguated titles, you may as well have left the article at the ambiguous title. My objection is to people only doing half a job, which is how it looks from my end when I come across your redirects. Compare: Even if you're printing something for the whole office, if you're the one who uses up the last of the paper in the printer, it's your job to refill it. J Milburn (talk) 23:46, 23 November 2014 (UTC)
A guideline compliant title is still beneficial, particularly to mobile users, even if it is a painful process to correct every pipelink. Which doesn't mean I don't agree with the paper refill analogy. As I said these laborious jobs are an inevitable product of WP:NCM which in effect guides to make ambiguous pipelinks with no thought to generic song titles reoccuring later.

Nomination of Winter Story (Mandy Chiang album) for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Winter Story (Mandy Chiang album) is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Winter Story (Mandy Chiang album) until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. George Ho (talk) 04:59, 7 December 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguating article titles when no conflicting articles exist[edit]

You moved Rakuen (album) to Rakuen (Yui Horie album), but none of the other Rakuen albums have articles, so I'm a little confused about why it needed to be moved. I've always thought that articles should not be disambiguated unless other articles with the same title exist. Could you please link me to the relevant guideline? I'm interested in reading more. Thanks, Melonkelon (talk) 05:06, 7 December 2014 (UTC)

It's at WP:Naming conventions (music), whether an album has a standalone article or is mentioned in an artist bio the album still exists. In ictu oculi (talk) 07:28, 7 December 2014 (UTC)

Album article renames[edit]

Greetings. Here are some questions about some articles you renamed recently. (1) In renaming Keep On Keepin' On to Keep On Keepin' On (New Riders of the Purple Sage album), you added a talk page comment referring to "WP:NMC". What's that? There doesn't seem to be a shortcut by that name: WP:NMC. (2) In a related question, why rename the article when there's not another "Keep On Keepin' On" article? (3) Along similar lines, why rename Brujo to Brujo (album) when there's not another "Brujo" article? As far as I can tell, these renames are contrary to current guidelines. For example at MOS:ALBUM#Naming it says, "Do not pre-emptively disambiguate!" and gives some examples. Mudwater (Talk) 04:09, 10 December 2014 (UTC)

(1) WP:NCM yes. (2) As I understand WP:DAB we disambiguate against existing content, not article titles. (3) Brujo can go back if you wish, I created the dab at Brujo (disambiguation). In ictu oculi (talk) 04:18, 10 December 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for explaining, and thanks for putting "Brujo" back. As far as "Keep On Keepin' On", I want to think about that some more, especially the part about disambiguating "the real world" as opposed to existing Wikipedia articles, I'm really not too sure about that. But at least you provided a list of similarly named albums. P.S. A documentary film of the same name came out this year, though there's not an article about it. Here it is on IMDb. Mudwater (Talk) 04:36, 10 December 2014 (UTC)
@Mudwater, In ictu oculi: I have reverted the names back to original titles, but I started a proposal at Talk:Keep On Keepin' On. Off-topic, but I'm inviting you another discussion, Talk:Wong Sing-chi. --George Ho (talk) 07:33, 10 December 2014 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Arthur L. Hammond[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Arthur L. Hammond has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

I declined speedy deletion under CSD A7, enough assertion of notability to overcome that CSD guideline. However, subject appears to fail WP:GNG, at least from the references provided.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

User:Pass a Method is now known as User:North Atlanticist Usonian[edit]

In case you don't know, and since you have had to deal with Pass a Method's problematic editing time and time again, I'm just letting you know that User:Pass a Method is now known as User:North Atlanticist Usonian.

Dab? Do you have any other topics to put here? The film doesn't have an article and even if it did, wouldn't this be primary? (please use {{Ping}} if you respond here.) —Justin (koavf)TCM 06:00, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

@Koavf: I believe the baseline should be dab with the four topics mentioned under this name in other articles. It clearly isn't primary topic yet, that would be crystal ball. In ictu oculi (talk) 06:09, 22 January 2015 (UTC)
Primary topic But it has sources and incoming links and the other articles don't exist. If you can establish that (e.g.) the 1944 film is actually a big deal and we somehow missed it in the course of making 4.6 million other articles, then you could definitely move the album article back to "(album)" and make the dab page the primary topic. Until then, you would have an actual article which has disambiguation in the title and a dab page with nothing to link to on it. —Justin (koavf)TCM 07:56, 22 January 2015 (UTC)
Please see WP:PRIMARYTOPIC. In ictu oculi (talk) 15:53, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

New Morning (Misia album)[edit]

I've gone over this with you in the past and you didn't listen to me that time either. In all Japanese reliable sources, this album's name is written in all caps. Because Wikipedia's internal style guides do not allow this unless each of those letters stands for something, then it has to be called a "stylization". This is because not only has Misia (whose name is also always parsed as MISIA in Japanese) released albums with a title like "NEW MORNING" she has also released the album Mother Father Brother Sister. I don't know how many times I have to clarify this to you or everyone else when suddenly you assume that "stylization" doesn't make sense or is not allowed or whatever when it is a matter forced on the English Wikipedia because of the manual of style. I am tired of this nonsense from you. The album's name within Japan is parsed a way that the English Wikipedia's manual of style forbids. That is why it is called a stylization. Just like Ke$ha is a stylization and Rick Ro$$ is a stylization and so on. I don't know why you constantly do this despite the hours I spent explaining this exact same concept to you 5 months ago.—Ryūlóng (琉竜) 01:56, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

As before, this isn't the Japanese Wikipedia how something is written in Romaji text in Japanese articles is not how it is written in English text in English articles. In ictu oculi (talk) 03:40, 23 January 2015 (UTC)
There are no English language sources for these things so we have to fall back on the Japanese ones which exclusively typset the title of this album in all caps, which is a stylistic choice considering that there are tracks on the album in question titled "HOPE & DREAMS", "Miss you always", "Daisy", "One day, One life", etc. Your insistence that this information must be in English language reliable sources that do not exist when you don't demand this same standard be set for an American musician like Lady Gaga whose last solo studio album is typeset as "ARTPOP" and there is an identical statement on Artpop regarding stylization.—Ryūlóng (琉竜) 03:55, 23 January 2015 (UTC)
We should follow English print sources. If we are making a statement based on Japanese print sources then the statement should be qualified to say "in Japanese". In ictu oculi (talk) 04:03, 23 January 2015 (UTC)
Someone else showed you an English print source that uses "NEW MORNING" and we do not need to make that determination. You are making a completely wrong interpretation of what's going on. The album's title is "NEW MORNING" regardless of what language that information appears in. It is on the physical CD. It is on the official website of the artist and her record label. The only reason any of this is happening is because MOS:CAPS won't allow "NEW MORNING" as the article title. This has nothing to do with romaji as you insist it does because I've repeatedly given you evidence that not only has MISIA released an album that has an English language title but is not typeset in all caps, but she has multiple songs included on NEW MORNING that are also not typeset in all caps.
Tell me this: Why do you refuse to acknowledge this? Why do you demand that "in Japanese" be used? Why do you insist on requiring non-existant sources?—Ryūlóng (琉竜) 04:52, 23 January 2015 (UTC)
Ryulong, can I ask, do you always get your own way on Wikipedia? Let the RFC decide please. In ictu oculi (talk) 04:54, 23 January 2015 (UTC)
You shouldn't have started a damn RFC because you refused to listen to any of the arguments I put forward tonight or in September. I have gone above and beyond in showing why you are incorrect in your insistence here and you refuse to acknowledge any of it. It is not "Romaji". It is not just "in Japanese". There is no reason for this to have been brought up again but you changed it, again, anyway. I don't understand why you've done any of this. We don't need an RFC. You just need to read what myself and DAJF have said to you. You've made unreasonable expectations and refuse to acknowledge any evidence to the contrary.—Ryūlóng (琉竜) 04:58, 23 January 2015 (UTC)
Do you do anything on Wikipedia other than move pages to conform with the disambiguation rules or what? Because if you did anything otherwise you might actually know something about standard article writing practice other than disambiguation rules and regulations.—Ryūlóng (琉竜) 05:00, 23 January 2015 (UTC)
Are you done? Anything more you wish to say? In ictu oculi (talk) 05:13, 23 January 2015 (UTC)
You don't know anything about Japanese music and I've expounded upon that thought on the article talk page where I've given examples of American and Canadian born musicians solely releasing music within Japan disprove your "romaji" interpretation. Also, retract the RFC.—Ryūlóng (琉竜) 05:17, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

All good wishes to you, Invertzoo (talk) 21:40, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Disco Zombies[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Disco Zombies has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Neither sentence of this article explains how the band was notable. Both references seem to just be listings and not journalistic coverage. Please see WP:BAND and WP:N if you are to expand this article.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Tulisa Contostavlos[edit]

I am thinking of closing this move discussion. Do you have an opinion on moving the DAB to Tulisa? It seems wrong to leave Tulisa redirecting to the singer without moving the singer's article to Tulisa. One solution is to let Tulisa be the DAB and the singer herself would be at Tulisa (singer). The existing votes leave me unclear on whether that's what most people want. The DAB was created by a user part way through the discussion so we don't know what everyone thinks about having the DAB at Tulisa. If it's too confusing I will just relist. Thanks, EdJohnston (talk) 23:41, 25 January 2015 (UTC)

Anthony Johnson[edit]

Hey there. Thanks for giving your opinion at the talk page. However, I don't understand your reasoning. You're saying that since there's a common first name and common surname, that he should not get the namespace. What about Jon Jones? He has a common first and last name. Why does he have his own page? Because he is the most significant out of all by far. That's how I feel about Anthony Johnson and I've provided the points and evidence to support that strongly. Is there any way I could get you to change your mind? Please leave a reply at my talk page. Thanks. WWE Batman131 (talk) 19:24, 29 January 2015 (UTC)

Yvette[edit]

Hi, IIO. I made my first RM closure tonight at Talk:Yvette. Can you have a look and give me any feedback? I think it went okay and BD2412 did help with moving the disambig page. It's uncharted territory tbh! I enjoy contributing to Wikipedia so constructive feedback is very welcome, thanks. Zarcadia (talk) 20:30, 30 January 2015 (UTC)

Therapeutae and Buddhist influence[edit]

You might remember this from a few years ago.

Another user (who actively shows good faith) added their own better version of the paragraph, with references - that I didn't think were strong enough, so I've moved it to talk, where we're having a useful discussion. You were involved last time around, so I thought you might want to know.

Just curious...[edit]

Do you believe that Ooh Yeah (song) should be moved to Ooh Yeah (Moby song)? Steel1943 (talk) 15:08, 12 February 2015 (UTC)

User:Steel1943 FWIW I've added a couple of album tracks to the Ooh Yeah dab, so technically probably yes, but this doesn't appear to be a case where's there's a classic earlier era song being passed over. Depends how distinctive onomatopoeic noises like "ooh" and "oh" really are; it isn't a difference like doe and dough. In ictu oculi (talk) 10:28, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

Ray Rush[edit]

Okay so I found the article you did Ray Rush under the shortest bios-I'm trying to find out if he is living or not (I might move him to possibly living), have any info about dob and other stuff? thanks. Wgolf (talk) 00:18, 16 February 2015 (UTC)

Unfortunately not, seems to have been active in the 60s but no bio data. In ictu oculi (talk) 10:32, 17 February 2015 (UTC)

article creation
Thank you for creating articles on so many red links everybody else seems to find too obscure, sometimes before I even ask, and for adding my personal memories to Huelgas Ensemble. For more memories see my user page, with new design, - you are an awesome Wikipedian (23 September 2009)!

Wildside[edit]

So...I moved Wildside (Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch song) to Wildside (song) because there was no other song with that title, then I saw the discussion on the Motley Crue song. So, uh, should I move it back? Or do you think we just need a hatnote on the song title for possible ambiguity and call it a day? hbdragon88 (talk) 10:02, 24 February 2015 (UTC)

A hatnote doesn't help mobile users, or people with slow connections, as the difference is only a spacing I have put it back. Cheers. In ictu oculi (talk) 07:15, 27 February 2015 (UTC)
Okay, fair enough. But is there any centralized discussion on this? Like has there been a recent policy change with this? I recall a time when we used to have Revolver (album) and Thriller (album) - and now they're completely disambiguated for zero confusion. Also, i was wondering why you were "familiar" and that was because you recently moved The Boxer to the disambiguated title. hbdragon88 (talk) 06:24, 28 February 2015 (UTC)
Yes there was a discussion on WP:SONGDAB about a year and a half ago to revert the addition of a "primary song" idea to the guideline. Though interpretation of whether other songs "exist" is often settled via RMs. In this case though with just a space different I don't think there'd be much need for discussion.
