Death of John Lennon[edit]

I reverted your move; prior talk page discussion has lead to a consensus that the murder of John Lennon was not an assassination. If you disagree, please start a discussion on the talk page to see if other editors agree. — John Cardinal (talk) 03:25, 26 January 2010 (UTC)

Please do not remove clean up tags until you have actually addressed the problem[edit]

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. It might not have been your intention, but your recent edit removed maintenance templates from The Tragically Hip. When removing maintenance templates, please be sure to either resolve the problem that the template refers to, or give a valid reason for the removal in the edit summary. If this was a mistake, don't worry, as your removal of this template has been reverted. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia, and if you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. Thank you.

Youtube external links[edit]

YouTube links to music videos are generally not notable for inclusion. Please see WP:EL for the inclusion criteria, please in the future stick with official websites or useful links, and remember Wikipedia is not a link directory. kiac. (talk-contrib) 02:22, 25 February 2010 (UTC)

Also keep in mind that most youtube videos are uploaded by people who are not the copyright holders. If an official video exists on a creators official website, use that, but do not link to copyrighted music videos. - ʄɭoʏɗiaɲ τ ¢ 18:05, 27 February 2010 (UTC)

All the links I have made to youtube are from official music video channels (mainly vevo).

Inglourious Basterds[edit]

This article is a GA, therefore big changes need to be discussed on the talk page. The chapter headings are not needed and they make the article look unsightly, why do you insist on adding them? - JuneGloom07 Talk? 22:51, 7 March 2010 (UTC)

  • Hi. Please don't keep adding those section headings. there is a consensus that they're not needed since they don't add to the reader's understanding. If you disagree, you're welcome to start a discussion on the talk page and we can discuss it calmly, but please don't continue to revert as this is considered edit warring. Thank you. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 23:50, 7 March 2010 (UTC)

Addition of YouTube links to U2 song articles[edit]

Hello there, I noticed that you have added YouTube links to several of the U2 song articles. I have reverted these additions, but only because those links are already present in the articles and it is redundant to include them twice. I took it upon myself to add the links a long time ago, and there are no videos uploaded from official sources that are not already included in the various articles. The infobox contains a field specifically for the inclusion of such links, and it was decided to use that field instead of the External Links section. Cheers, MelicansMatkin (talk, contributions) 01:33, 8 March 2010 (UTC)

Please do not revert again; I explained the removal to you in the above message ages ago. It is redundant to have them twice. If you have an issue with it, please take it to the article's talk page. MelicansMatkin (talk, contributions) 00:20, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

Matthew - thanks for coming along and trying to help improve the encyclopedia. MelicanMatkin has a point here. Please discuss this on talk pages rather than reverting article content. kind regards. --Merbabu (talk) 00:28, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

Lead sentence[edit]

Per WP:LEDE and WP:NPOV we avoid award mentions in the lead sentence of an article. Waltz's Oscar win is mentioned in the following sentence. --Madchester (talk) 03:06, 8 March 2010 (UTC)

March 2010[edit]

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. It might not have been your intention, but your recent edit removed content from Wikipedia. When removing text, please specify a reason in the edit summary and discuss edits that 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.

Thank you.Candyo32 (talk) 02:04, 24 March 2010 (UTC)

Information.svg Please do not add inappropriate external links to Wikipedia, as you did to America's Suitehearts. Wikipedia is not a collection of links, nor should it be used for advertising or promotion. Inappropriate links include (but are not limited to) links to personal web sites, links to web sites with which you are affiliated, and links that attract visitors to a web site or promote a product. See the external links guideline and spam guideline for further explanations. Because Wikipedia uses the nofollow attribute value, its external links are disregarded by most search engines. If you feel the link should be added to the article, please discuss it on the article's talk page rather than re-adding it. Thank you. F-22 RaptörAces High 19:30, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

Nuvola apps important.svg Please stop adding inappropriate external links to Wikipedia. It is considered spamming and Wikipedia is not a vehicle for advertising or promotion. Because Wikipedia uses nofollow tags, additions of links to Wikipedia will not alter search engine rankings. If you continue spamming, you will be blocked from editing Wikipedia. F-22 RaptörAces High 00:58, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

User page[edit]

Hey there. I've seen you working on articles, but would you consider making a userpage for yourself? You've been around here for a while, but seeing your username in red (linking to User:MatthewGoodfan101) in page histories and watchlists makes you appear to be a newcomer, even though you've been around a few months. In any case, keep up the good work (particularly to Canadian rock-related articles). Cheers, -M.Nelson (talk) 23:14, 8 May 2010 (UTC)

Notability and third party coverage[edit]

Please note that for articles such as those about albums or songs must individually meet Wikpedia's notability requirements - i.e. "significant coverage in third party sources". The guidelines at WP:MUSIC are even more clear stating that if the only third party coverage is a chart listing, album and song articles should be merged to the artist. Please do not continue to undue proper #REDIRECTs without providing significant third party coverage that shows the album/song does indeed meet our requirements (such as professional review from SPIN, Rolling Stone, Vibe or indication that it recieved a major award.) Thanks for your help in keeping perpetual trivial stubs from cluttering Wikipedia! Active Banana (talk) 15:36, 10 May 2010 (UTC)

May 2010[edit]

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. It might not have been your intention, but your recent edit removed content from Discothèque (song). When removing text, please specify a reason in the edit summary and discuss edits that 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. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia, and if you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. Thank you. Use a edit summary or discuss or explain your change briefly in the talk page first. Tanvir 07:14, 21 May 2010 (UTC)

Article moves[edit]

I've moved National Hockey League Entry Draft back to its original place. Such unilateral moves have been strongly contested in the past, and as such, I feel renames like this should be discussed first. I've left the other sport articles as they were, however, so that other projects can deal with them as they see fit. Cheers! Resolute 00:33, 27 June 2010 (UTC)

Addition of YouTube links[edit]

Please stop adding YouTube links to music article pages. Candyo32 14:44, 29 July 2010 (UTC)

Why? Does it violate any of wikipedia's laws? And if it does, why are others able to and I'm not?

File copyright problem with File:Big Sugar Woodstock 1999.jpg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thank you for uploading File:Big Sugar Woodstock 1999.jpg. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can determine the license and the source of the file. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their license and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. ww2censor (talk) 04:25, 10 August 2010 (UTC)

sales/shipments[edit]

I reverted your recent edits to Thank Me Later. The official title of the Canadian Albums Chart is "Top 100"; think of it as an equivalent to US Albums Chart and Billboard 200. As for the sales, organizations like the RIAA and CRIA base certifications on shipments (to stores/retail) rather than sales, as u can see here. Dan56 (talk) 04:31, 15 August 2010 (UTC)

Craig David[edit]

hey, stop adding the certification back. unless you add the positions and source them, i'm going to keep removing it. Mister sparky (talk) 12:20, 18 August 2010 (UTC)

i meant adding the canadian positions. without them there's no point whatsoever for the certification to be there. as you're canadian and so adamant for canada to be mentioned, add the positions. Mister sparky (talk) 20:54, 18 August 2010 (UTC)

License tagging for File:Smash Mouth Then The Morning Comes.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Smash Mouth Then The Morning Comes.jpg. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information; to add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia.

File permission problem with File:Big Sugar Woodstock 1999.jpg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Big Sugar Woodstock 1999.jpg. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file agreed to license it under the given license.

If you created this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. ww2censor (talk) 05:41, 31 August 2010 (UTC)

Big Shiny Tunes and non-free album covers[edit]

I've removed all but one of the album covers in this article per Wikipedia:NFC#Multimedia. The use of album covers in discographies and similar articles is considered to fail WP:NFCC #8 significance requirements. If you dispute this, please read a similar debate, which resulted in images not being retained on Down to Earth and High Cumberland Jubilee compilations, Jimmy Buffett sound board live albums and Margaritaville Cafe: Late Night. As a result of this removal, the album covers have all been orphaned, making them subject to deletion in a few days. If you have questions, please ask. Thank you, --Hammersoft (talk) 15:24, 6 October 2010 (UTC)

  • You reinstated these album covers without explanation, despite my explanation to you above. The content violates WP:NFCC, which is POLICY here. I strongly suggest you explain your actions either here or at the talk page of the article. Attempting to edit war the images back onto the article is not acceptable. --Hammersoft (talk) 23:05, 6 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Please stop edit warring the images on to the article. I note your edit summary, but the issue isn't a legal one. We are focused on providing a free content resource. See m:Mission. To that end, we limit fair use images as much as we can without compromising our mission. Adding a dozen fair use images onto this article is against policy. Is there some part of this you are not understanding? I've given you multiple links above pointing out how you are wrong. Why do you insist on revert warring to push these images on? Talk to me. TALK TO ME. --Hammersoft (talk) 03:18, 7 October 2010 (UTC)
Stop adding these images to the article. If you persist with this disruptive behaviour an administrator may block you from editing here.

MGFan, you are not going to win this one. Wikipedia is not the place to collect exhaustive lists of non-free images. We accept them where they are essential to identification or understanding of the article topic, where text alone is insufficient to explain. None of your additional images conveys anything more than this: "subsequent issues of the series used slightly modified graphics and added the issue number to the title text". You could maybe get away with adding one additional graphic to show how this was done, but not the whole set. If any of the covers were subjects of critical commentary, like "Big Shiny Tunes 7 sets a new standard for compilation album covers" [Rolling Stone] - there also you would have something to go on. Completeness just for the sake of completeness doesn't work here when it comes to non-free images. So yeah, please stop insisting they be included. Franamax (talk) 22:35, 7 October 2010 (UTC)

Stop hand nuvola.svg This is the final warning you will receive regarding your disruptive edits.

The next time you vandalize Wikipedia, as you did at Big Shiny Tunes, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. You've been told by multiple people that this inclusion is improper.

Linkin Park discography[edit]

Same as above (message left for you 25 September), consensus at WP:DISCOG is for 10 columns max. Please stop adding and 11th column for Canada. Take it to the talk page and gain consensus if you'd like to swap out something. Thanks! - eo (talk) 19:05, 9 October 2010 (UTC)

stop what you're doing now[edit]

Information.svgYour edits are messing up the table and you need to gain a consensus before you start removing anything to make room for Canada. You've got quite a number of warnings on your Talk Page, please do not ignore communication or you'll be blocked. - eo (talk) 19:11, 9 October 2010 (UTC)

As I already said, Linkin Park's peak positions on the Canadian Albums chart are higher than most of the other countries' charts presented on the article. If there is a 10 maximum, remove the peak positions of another countrty's chart that has the lowest peak positions (ex. Japan). Linkin Park's peak positions in Canada should be recognized because it is one of the countries the band has had the most success in.
If that is what you want, then as I said, discuss on the talk page of the article. It has been in its current state for quite some time with no problems. Additionally, please do not do it piece-by-piece, saving the article each time you make a small change. Your last few edits left the tables messed up. - eo (talk) 19:19, 9 October 2010 (UTC)

My recent edit has not messed up the chart.

Why did you switch it out just now without a discussion? My point was for you to gain a consensus for just switching things out. All of the other tables have JPN. I asked you to wait and you just went ahead and did what you wanted anyway. How is that working collaboratively? - eo (talk) 19:24, 9 October 2010 (UTC)

1) It's a clean edit with no disruption. 2)I removed JPN because that country's charts had lower peak positions than the other countries (including Canada). 3) For the other tables I will also remove the country with the lowest peak postions (likely Japan). It will also be a clean edit. 4) I am an experienced wikipedia editor. I know what I'm doing so please just trust me to edit the article neatly and there will not be an issue.

You are missing my point. I am not questioning whether you are capable of doing it, I asked you to gain consensus on the article's talk page before switching out countries. Why did you just go ahead and do it anyway? Do not continue to switch out random countries without discussion. - eo (talk) 19:29, 9 October 2010 (UTC)

I understand your point very well. My point is that discussing it is uneccessary with an experienced editor as myself. I have edited dozens of other discographies without disruption until I came across editing this article. I have edited another table without messing it up. I am done editing it now and I'd appreciate it if you'd just let it be and let the band's peak positions in Canada be recognized (as they deserve to be).

Sorry but I don't buy it and I absolutely don't appreciate how you just blew me off when I asked that you wait for a consensus before changing things around. You are 100% wrong if you think that because you are an "experienced editor" that you are somehow above the process of gaining consensus on any article or that a discussion is "unnecessary". I never said that Canada couldn't or shouldn't be added. The article has had the same 10 countries for months which indeicates that there was no issue with what was there. Now you have removed JPN and still, you left one of the tables incorrectly formatted.[1] It makes absolutely no difference how many other discographies you have edited. This time, today, on this article, I asked you to wait and you just ignored me. How do you know that someone else may think that JPN "deserves" to be in the tables in the same way you think CAN should be there? You may see yourself as an "experienced editor" but I see a user with a Talk Page filled with warnings and requests from other people to change the way you edit, and you had a final warning given to you as recently as yesterday. A user asked you on 25 September not to add an 11th column to Linkin Park albums table and you did it again today. I see past comments which advise you to gain consensus on other articles before editing. This is not working collaboratively with others and I can assure you that continuing in this way will get you blocked. - eo (talk) 20:21, 9 October 2010 (UTC)
  • I concur with eo's comments. Either work with your fellow editors towards a common goal, or you will find yourself on the outside looking in. You don't own these articles, and you can not force your way around here. We work by consensus. --Hammersoft (talk) 20:49, 9 October 2010 (UTC)

Relative success charts[edit]

Hey mat I know you are trying to help, but this is not the way. Maybe your edits are right maybe are not, I don't konw!. Before starting an edit war, listen. We usually select the charts which had more success. Your edits have made me think we have currently no consensus of what is success. What means a chart is more successfull than other chart? I don't know. So before starting editing again, please enter here and discuss about success. If we find consensus here, it will not only help Linkin Park discography article, but every discography article. If you are that sure Canada chart is very successful, I'm sure it will end up on the article, but first we need to know what success is. So we are freezing the charts selection until we find consensus. Meanwhile, if you want to help with LP discography article, you can help improving the WP:LEAD. I'm trying to make it a featured list and the lead is the weakest point--Neo139 (talk) 00:20, 10 October 2010 (UTC)

Canadian charts[edit]

When citing Canadian chart positions for albums or singles, it's best to cite an overarching source like a book that lists chart peaks. You want to refrain from citing a particular week's charts as you have been doing on numerous pages because that can only verify what the charts were like up to that specific week. This is particularly a concern because albums and singles can always peak higher later. Unless the peak was number one (since an album or single can't peak higher), a certain week's published charts are not an ideal source for this information. WesleyDodds (talk) 01:46, 14 November 2010 (UTC)

For some reason, you want to link both RPM (magazine) and Canadian Singles Chart within the same line on chart information. These are two different charts from two different sources, so linking to both is incorrect. Please just link to one. --Starcheerspeaksnewslostwars (talk) 19:13, 4 January 2011 (UTC)

Backstreet Boys discography[edit]

I take it that IP 122.165.3.250 is you, correct? Please be sure to provide source(s) when changing positions as you have done in this edit, especially when the source(s) already provided cannot support your changes. You might want to go over WP:Verifiability which clearly states The threshold for inclusion in Wikipedia is verifiability, not truth; that is, whether readers can check that material in Wikipedia has already been published by a reliable source, not whether editors think it is true. Regards.--Harout72 (talk) 22:46, 31 January 2011 (UTC)

No, I am not IP 122.165.3.250. All my contributions have been under my name "MatthewGoodFan101". Please don't suspect me of making improper edits.

Edit-warring as you did yesterday is improper editing. When other editors ask you to point out a specific page within the source provided as I did yesterday multiple times, you have to try and discuss first, rather than going on reverting their edits as you did. Please read up Wikipedia:Edit warring. I also suggest that you read Reliable Sources which clearly states Sources should directly support the material presented in an article and should be appropriate to the claims made. Meaning simply placing RPM source that contains hundreds of pages does not serve the purpose, you have to provide a specific page in that source to support those specific positions just as I did.--Harout72 (talk) 06:27, 1 February 2011 (UTC)

Please stop reverting my changes[edit]

You seem to be reverting my changes to articles no matter what I've done to improve them. I may have done a number of little edits and if you don't like one thing, you revert the whole thing. There is no need to do that. And why do you link RPM (magazine) and Canadian Singles Chart in the same line? They are unrelated charts. Instead of adding succession boxes for the RPM Alt 30 chart, add the info to the chart box if not already there and to the article, where it is more appropriate and beneficial to the article. Since no consensus could be reached to have succession boxes on songs and albums during a lengthy discussion at WT:CHARTS, they should not be added. Thank you. --Starcheerspeaksnewslostwars (talk) 11:20, 4 February 2011 (UTC)

I link RPM (magazine) and Canadian Singles Chart in the same line because the RPM Singles chart was a part of the Canadian Singles Chart, but the RPM singles chart does not have an article of its own. They are related because the top singles chart for RPM for years was the main singles chart for Canada until the magazine was ceased in 2000. You can even go on the article of the Canadian Singles Chart and the RPM magazine is related on it. What's wrong with the succession boxes? I had them featured on the song articles for the same reason the #1 Billboard songs have succession boxes on their articles. There's nothing wrong with them and there's no good reason for them to be removed. I am trying to make the RPM charts more recognized, as they were the top Canadian charts for years. Please stop trying to remove them. Thank you.
RPM was not a part of the Canadian Singles Chart. The former compiled the charts for Canada between 1964 and 2000. The latter began in 1996 and is done by Neilson Soundscan. They are two entirely different charts and have no relation with one another in regards to their methods of compilation and chart rankings, so they should not be linked. RPM is mentioned in the Canadian Singles Chart article only because it is a similar subject. Linking both charts in the same line is just plain wrong. Succession boxes are slowly being phased out in all music articles per a discussion several months ago. Adding new succession boxes is counter-productive. Melicans (talk, contributions) 23:06, 4 February 2011 (UTC)

The RPM Singles Chart and Soundscan singles chart are different charts, but the actual title of Canadian Singles Chart is shared between the two. To avoid confusion between both charts, I add the RPM singles chart postion as RPM Singles chart. There's nothing wrong with that. Many songs charted on the RPM singles chart before the soundscan chart existed. Therefore, the RPM chart should be linked with the Canadian Singles Chart as it was the only Canadian Singles chart before the soundscan chart started. Also, Soundscan didn't have a rock/alternative chart like RPM did, so that RPM chart has no reason to its succession boxes removed. Succession boxes still exist on hundreds of song articles so I don't see how having new succession boxes is counter-productive.

They do not share the same titles. All of the RPM charts are preceeded by the name "RPM". If you look at the archives you can clearly see that the charts have names such as "RPM Top 100 Albums" and "RPM Top 10 Country Singles". The Canadian Singles Chart is published by Neilson Soundscan, and the RPM charts were published by RPM. Linking the RPM charts to the Canadian Singles Chart article leads readers to believe that they were also published by Neilson Soundscan, which is very clearly not the case. RPM charts link to RPM (magazine) because that is the publisher. If you link something that does not have an article then you either leave it as a red link for someone else to create later or you link to the creator/publisher. Linking to an unrelated chart with an unrelated publisher is both bizarre and incorrect. And the succession boxes are counter-productive because they are all being removed. Adding them in when they will just be removed again is fairly pointless. Melicans (talk, contributions) 23:23, 4 February 2011 (UTC)

Yes, but if you look at the archives you can also clearly see it says "Canada's Only National 100 Hit Tracks Survey". The RPM Singles Chart was Canada's only Singles Chart until Soundscan published their own Canadian Singles Chart. Therefore, The RPM singles chart does deserve to share some right as "Canada's Singles Chart", just like Billboard's Canadian Hot 100 does now. No readers will believe the RPM singles chart was published by Soundscan as RPM existed 30 years before Soundscan began publishing their chart.

You are missing the point entirely. It may have been Canada's only chart for a good thirty years, but it was not called the Canadian Singles Chart. The article is not "Canadian Single Charts", which would be about the history of charts in Canada; it is about that one specific chart that is actually called the Canadian Singles Chart. You're linking it to an unrelated article with an entirely different name. It's a factual inaccuracy, and some readers will believe them to be one and the same. The two have absolutely no relevance with each other and should not be linked as the same. Melicans (talk, contributions) 01:25, 5 February 2011 (UTC)
The article for Canadian Singles Chart is for a chart called the Canadian Singles Chart. The RPM singles chart was never called the Canadian Singles Chart and there should be no link to an article that has to do with a chart named Canadian Singles Chart when listing its chart position on RPM's chart. That article is not about all singles charts for Canada but a specific chart. You are misleading readers that there is a relationship between the two. Please stop this practice of linking to two entirely independent charts. --Starcheerspeaksnewslostwars (talk) 01:34, 10 February 2011 (UTC)

Your edits on Green Day single articles[edit]

I saw your edits on the articles for Green Day songs such as "Longview", Redundant, "Nice Guys Finish Last, ect. And why did you revert almost every edit made recently? My edit was valid and I fixed some important things and you reverted it, so why? I am not going to edit-war, but your reverts are not valid. And if you are reverting an edit that is not vandalism, please explain your reason for reverting it on the article's talk page, just so you know. :) --Blaguymonkey (talk) 10:23, 16 February 2011 (UTC)

How are my edits not valid? I don't see how providing sources to music videos (which hundreds of song articles have) is invalid. There was no reason for you to remove them, so I reverted your edits to keep the music video links on the articles. I don't want an edit-war either, but all I ask is that you keep the music video links on the articles, as there is no problem with them being there.

I thought links to YouTube videos on Wikipedia articles violated some copyright thing or something. And since I thought that, I try to remove them off of every article I find with them. So what I am going to do is restore my edits but keep the link to the YouTube videos. And if I do one thing wrong, do not revert my whole edit, just undo what I did wrong, not my whole edit. --Blaguymonkey (talk) 04:01, 17 February 2011 (UTC)

RPM Alternative 30[edit]

There is no need to include succession boxes for a chart that doesn't have its own article and barely gets a mention in the article for RPM (magazine). All it says is: "RPM maintained several format charts including Top Singles (all genres), Adult Contemporary, Rock/Alternative (Rock, alternative rock) and Country Tracks (aka Top Country Tracks) for country music." That's it. There's no lists, there's nothing in a navigational box, nothing. How does that warrant space in hundreds of articles in a succession box. Use your source and put in the article, add it to the peak chart positions, but succession boxes are no longer necessary. In fact, a long discussion at WT:CHARTS took place regarding the use of succession boxes and no consensus could be reached to include them. Without consensus, they should no longer be added. I also wish you wouldn't revert changes I've made to articles you've worked out in their entirety. Most of my edits are actual improvements, yet you revert everything because you didn't like one thing. There's no reason for that. Thanks. --Starcheerspeaksnewslostwars (talk) 08:05, 23 February 2011 (UTC)

Load Me Up[edit]

A debate on succession boxes took place at the end of last year at WT:CHARTS (see archive 11). It was virtually dead even so no consensus was achieved, so succession boxes should no longer be added to articles. I will not be removing them from articles that have had them for months or years because of the same lack of consensus. Because you have been adding them around the time of the debate and since its conclusion, I feel I can remove them. What this means on these articles that you are working, you will need to gain individual WP:CONSENSUS to add them back in, which you can take to the talk page of the article or bring it back to WT:CHARTS for further discussion. Also, when you revert an edit, stop reverting ALL changes made. In Load Me Up, for example, why did you remove the quotations from the song titles that I added? What that shows is that you are not willing to work with the community. --Starcheerspeaksnewslostwars (talk) 15:44, 26 February 2011 (UTC)

That Song[edit]

Any reason you're reverting me here, or just for fun? I think I made my reasons pretty clear in the edit summaries. Removing wordiness, per WP:MOS ("Writing should be clear and concise"). "Charted in Canada on the Canadian charts" is just pointlessly redundant. Removing "charted well", per WP:PEACOCK. Better to just say it reached #31, and let readers judge for themselves how "well" that is. Anyway, I'm redoing the edits.

I have also knew that this image that this user uploaded is NOT the official single cover. It is just a random cover of the Stone Temple Pilots logo since 2010 before the 2013 logo for "Stone Temple Pilots with Chester Bennington". Here are the two things that's been proven for its official use only: [2], [3]. Skylar3214 7:44, 10 July 2014
And my apologies to this user, who did not upload this image, just only believes that the cover that somebody else uploaded is the official single cover for the song itself. Well, it's not, due to the links that I've put in this section for its official proven use on Google Play and xBox Music. Skylar3214 11:33, 11 July 2014
Now that it's deleted, it will not be uploaded anymore, Matthew. Got a problem with it, discuss it on my talk page, but no edit wars. I, and the administrators, will not allow it, even though I am no administrator, just a Wikipedia user. Skylar3214 10:51, 5 August 2014
