Hello. My name is Philip Terry Graham! I am the founder and, so far, only member of Sarasota Square, the man behind the Sounds of the Cosmos project, the author of The Great Leader, The Incredible Journey of Flash Sentry and Dreamer, the artist behind The Lonely Martian and regular contributor to the award-winning Sydney Technical High School student newspaper FRED. I have been on Wikipedia since September 2011, with most of my contributions being on Music-related articles.

Morally, I am not an editor who does his best to follow the rules, and can and will sometimes break rules in the name of a better Wikipedia. I also help to maintain an easy-to-navigate and easy to read graphic design for all articles. If I see an article that I'm interested in and it's a complete mess, I'm there to fix it! This is my talk page, so if you want to bring up a discussion about my edits, articles I maintain or other things I do on Wikipedia, be sure to click "New Section" at the top of the page and start writing!

(July 3, 2014) Question: How to upload an OGG file?[edit]

Hello! I noticed that you uploaded the 30-second sample for "Final Masquerade". I just want to know:

  1. How do you download the sample?
  2. How do you turn it to OGG?

I'm just curious. I want to upload one for "Boom Clap". You know, so. I hope you will answer! Remember to ping me or leave me a talkback template or mention me when you've replied. Cheers! Nahnah4 | Any thoughts? Pen 'em down here! | No Editcountitis! 09:49, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

It's a rather convoluted process, but I'll try my best to explain how I make OGG samples for Wikipedia. Firstly, I take an mp3 of a song I want to use, such as "Final Masquerade" and then I import it into an audio editing program. For me, I use Audacity. From there, I choose which part of the song I want to use for the sample. It has to be a sample less than 30 seconds long for copyright reasons, so I trim out a 30-second long part of the song, give it 3-second fade-ins and fade-outs and save the project as an audio file. Then, I upload the file onto online-convert.com, where I can convert the file to OGG and then download it onto my computer. Once I've downloaded my converted OGG file, I then upload it to Wikipedia, filling in the necessary details and whatnot. I'm not one to go into details, since I am really crap at explaining things to people, as evidented by my perevious conversations with people on this site, so i won't bother you with it. If you're not familiar with audio editing programs such as Audacity, be sure to hit up tutorials on YouTube. It's how I learned to use Audacity! RazorEye ⡭ ₪ ·o' ⍦ ࿂ 21:16, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
@RazorEyeEdits: However, I used Audacity, they told me that it is an error as they could not read the source file code. Nahnah4 | Any thoughts? Pen 'em down here! | No Editcountitis! 09:48, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

Overlinking[edit]

Regarding your recent edit to The Endless River, please note that wiki articles don't have to be linked multiple times, especially not in the same paragraph. See WP:OVERLINK for further information. jhsounds (talk) 10:09, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

Sorry for any inconveniences. You kind of don't notice these things, if you know what I mean. I usually don't notice when I've linked the same thing twice! RazorEye ⡭ ₪ ·o' ⍦ ࿂ 10:12, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

Labels[edit]

Now that I look at it, the Parlaphone/Warner Bros bit isn't directly sourced and appears to have been O.R. synthesized. This wouldn't be too bad, except sites outside Wikipedia are starting to point to this label information since the actual sources don't mention it. jhsounds (talk) 17:31, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

Well, the band are currently under Warner Bros. in the US, and under Parlophone in the rest of the world. Pretty logical deduction there. RazorEye ⡭ ₪ ·o' ⍦ ࿂ 17:36, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
Please read WP:OR and WP:SYNTHESIS. WP:CRYSTAL may also be relevant for some parts of the article. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 17:39, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
Well, I can throw down WPs as well: WP:COMMONSENSE. Unless the band announces that they're going to switch labels, or release material under a different label, you can't exactly argue that the album won't be released under the label they are currently under. Simple. RazorEye ⡭ ₪ ·o' ⍦ ࿂ 18:00, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

Really? Don't you really have something constructive to say or discuss, rather than thumping the rule book and threatening me with warnings such as this one? Can't we have a discussion without the wrecking ball-esque removal of content from the article and constant rule referencing without any sort of, well, human interaction to say at the very least?

"something constructive to say"? Yes; I said it in the section above, and on the article talk page, and in my edit summaries, but you have chosen to ignore all these and to edit war instead. You'll likely be blocked if you persist; and your policy-breaching material will be removed until there is a citation from a reliable source. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 19:47, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
Well, to be fairly honest, you're the one who started the edit war, not me. You went and removed a whole chunk of material before we could reach some sort of conclusion, and I was just trying to preserve the article in it's original state. I haven't been agressive in any sort of form for this entire discussion, so there is really no reason for any of us, especially you, to start being aggressive.
