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? PhilipTerryGraham ⡭ ₪ ·o' ⍦ ࿂ 19:43, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
"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.

(August 23, 2014) Discussion: Royal Blood articles[edit]

I thank you for creating all the pages for the songs by Royal Blood. It was something I was originally gonna do so thanks. But why won't you let people put the singles released from the album and on the singles pages, whuch album it's from. Those sections are in the info box for a reason. Plus it would make the page look better, make it easier to navigate, and it would just make more sense. So if you get the chance, please correct it. Jacob Sudduth

I simply cannot skew the definition of a music release just for the sake of convenience. I've been on Wikipedia for a long time and I honestly believe that the way infoboxes portray singles as a status of an album track, rather than a music release, is just simply wrong, and should be reamended. Singles are music releases which can contain one track, or more depending on who you talk to. The word "single" is simply not a status of an album track depending on whether or not it gets played on the radio or not, which, unfortunately, seems to be the accepted definition here on Wikipedia, enforced by the excuse that it's consensus. Singles are not from albums because singles are, to simply put it, not album tracks. They're music releases. If we are to continue slapping "from the album x" on every single infobox, shouldn't we do it for EPs aswell? Like, say, for example, "Out of the Black is from the album Royal Blood". It's silly isn't it? Why should singles be treated like that as well, then? I'm sorry if my words come off as a bit agressive, but that's simply how I feel about it. Albums and singles should be kept onto their own, and that maybe one day Infobox single and Infobox album can finally be merged and all this nonsense can stop. PhilipTerryGraham ⡭ ₪ ·o' ⍦ ࿂ 04:35, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
You're not skewing the definition of a music release. Stating which album it's from and tge tracks released off of that album is just adding more correct info. Plus, if it can't be added to the infobox, why add it at all. All that it is is the same info in different places. And putting released singles off of the album is just stating that those singles were released. Just more correct information, that doesn't negatively affect the status of the released album or single at all. Jacob Sudduth Jacob Sudduth
"Stating which album it's from and [the] tracks released off of that album is just adding more correct info" - Too bad you're not correct. Singles are singles. They're not from an album. They're promoting an album. You are skewing the definition; the fact that you're saying things like "released singles off of the album", says that you've been misguided as well. Unfortunately, of course, you went ahead and did it anyway, so don't be surprised at the fact that I'm slightly angry at you now. Why couldn't we at least reach a conclusion before you went ahead and edited the article? PhilipTerryGraham ⡭ ₪ ·o' ⍦ ࿂ 00:03, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
Because we both know that all that would've happened is an argument between us stating the other person is wrong. I didn't do it to piss you off. I did it because I know that I'm right. Even the band's webpage states that they are released off the album. I think the creators and maintainers of those webpages have a bit more authority than Wikipedia editors. I ain't here to make enemies dude. And I ain't misguided about the things I edit. Jacob Sudduth Jacob Sudduth
Well that's just extremely disappointing. We have discussions so that we can reach a conclusion. That's what a debate is. By backing out and just saying "I know I'm right", which, by the way, is an extremely arrogant and ignorant thing to say, especially for a person who says he doesn't want to make enemies, you are either saying to me that you either a) you don't want to be convinced that you're wrong and can't accept it or b) you are too lazy yourself to convince me that I'm wrong, and I personally believe with good faith the latter is most likely. So, please, either discuss or don't discuss. You can't just stop halfway and say "I'm right, you're wrong, and this conversation is going nowhere in my opinion". PhilipTerryGraham ⡭ ₪ ·o' ⍦ ࿂ 01:15, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
Can we just call in a third party to decide? I don't like to be insulted, especially when I haven't nor will I talk bad bout you. Call in STATICVAPOR (srry, can't name the capital and lower-case letters in his name off the top of my head). He's an unbiased veteran editor. Neither of us can really gain ground on each other. Ao I think a third party would be a good idea. You agree? Jacob Sudduth|Jacob Sudduth
What do you mean? I never insulted you. You just don't go out and say that you're right and just believe that. It is arrogant and ignorant. You're basically saying that I'm wrong and my opinion doesn't matter to you. I'm not saying you're a terrible person overall for saying such things. We all make mistakes sometimes and I don't hold any grudges against anyone. I'm sorry if I gave you that impression. I think it would be best if we called Static in, if that's whay you want to do. He's someone I have a high respect for as an editor myself. We've had discussions before, so it's not a particularly bad idea. Although if he mentions consensus at least once, I'm out. Because that's something we definitely will never agree on! :P PhilipTerryGraham ⡭ ₪ ·o' ⍦ ࿂ 01:43, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
......can u call him in? He would more than like just ignore me. And I agree. Nothing on the Royal Blood talk page. Juat his opinion. Also because it would only be us two talking on the consensus page. I dont think anyone else really messes with the Royal Blood pages. Thank ya. Jacob Sudduth

Individual games almost without exception aren't notable[edit]

As much as it's important to Roos fans, North Melbourne v Essendon (2014 AFL finals series) is almost certainly not notable enough for a stand alone article. WP:NOTNEWS, WP:NEVENTS and WP:ROUTINE would explain why. you are better off putting the effort into the 2014 AFL finals series article (however they want to do the capitalisation).

Proposed deletion of North Melbourne v Essendon (2014 AFL finals series)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article North Melbourne v Essendon (2014 AFL finals series) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Individual games (other than Grand Finals) are rarely notable, and are already adequately covered in 2014 AFL season and 2014 AFL finals series. This one has only routine coverage, similar to any other game.

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.
