Song Notability/Deletion[edit]

How come all these songs that have been tagged as Fails Notability haven't been merged or deleted by an administrator yet? Jingalin should be by now and I believe When I Feel Like It should be as well. Just seeing if you can give me some insight as to how long it normally takes for them to decide or if it's even a concern. BlaccCrab (talk) 19:02, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

@BlaccCrab: Administrators do not patrol pages that have that maintenance tag on it. If anyone sees a song as not meeting WP:NSONGS, they may nominate them at Articles for Deletion or boldly redirect them. I would not suggest you not doing the latter, since you seem to not understand WP:GNG or WP:NSONGS, judging by your tagging of "When I Feel Like It". It is more then clear from looking at the references that it was significantly covered in reliable sources. Being old is not a criteria for deletion. STATic message me! 19:17, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

Why are you being rude again? I Literally just asked a question. And how exactly is that song not up for deletion? Despite being scrapped (hence old, which wasn't even my point) it didn't make it past the bubbling under r&b/hip hop chart nor rhythmic/hot 100 or any relevant chart. What major publication covered the song? It's probably the only song featuring 2 Chainz that no one even knows existed let alone all the things I just pointed out. BlaccCrab (talk) 05:59, 1 August 2014 (UTC)

@BlaccCrab: I am not, apologies if you took it that way. I just told you, being tagged with a maintenance tag does not make the article up for deletion. That can only happen if it was placed at WP:AFD. Being scrapped from the album is also zero reason for deletion, I have asked you to see WP:NSONGS and understand what it means. Chart positions do not immediately make songs notable, and songs that chart low or do not chart are not immediately not notable. If you would look at the references section you would see the coverage, but you do not understand WP:N. I have it in iTunes, enough people bought it to make it chart, and it has been viewed 2,000+ times in the last three months, so there are people that certainly know it exists. Why are you refusing to listen to anything I tell you? STATic message me! 16:49, 1 August 2014 (UTC)

Appreciate the clean up bro, It has been a while since I done this.

Nicki Minaj feuds[edit]

Refer to Talk:Nicki Minaj for proof if you don't believe me. There is still an ongoing discussion about the feuds and issues in regards of a separate talk page that has yet to meet an agreement. ChocoLantern88 (talk) 18:50, 2 August 2014 (UTC)

@ChocoLantern88: Of course I saw that discussion. However, it does not have anything to do with their being a separate article at all. If you think there shouldn't be one, WP:AFD is the venue. STATic message me! 19:58, 2 August 2014 (UTC)

MTV VMA's BFV[edit]

Hey there. As i see you're interested in hip hop music and sometimes you're editing Juicy J's article. Can you tell me should i put MTV VMA's Best Female Video category at his Awards and nominations section? This year "Dark Horse" is nominated for that award. Just the little problem is that the category is titled "Best Female Video", but when they announce the nominees during the awards they also reveal the featured artist's name (if there is one). Thank ya, waitin' for ya answer --Eurofan88 (talk) 20:22, 2 August 2014 (UTC)

@Eurofan88: IMO I do not think we should, it would look weird and it is not that major of an award for him anyways. STATic message me! 02:59, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

Turn Down For What[edit]


Just wanted to ask why my edit claiming that "Mad Decent" released Turn Down for What was removed. If you consider the actual ISRC, it was released under Columbia but also as well from Mad Decent which you know is another division of Jefree's publishing. Is there any reason why my revert was edited other than the one I have posted above? If so, please do let me know

Thanks SwervingStyle

Sorry to message again, but I see that you have also reverted my edits made to Cashmere Cat and Mad Decent's roster. I don't see why. Jack U is Diplo's project with fellow artist Skrillex and it was made clear on the official Mad Decent site that Jack U will be releasing everything via Mad Decent's label. Doesn't that allow for the Jack U to be placed under the Mad Decent artist's spot? Additionally, Cashmere Cat has been signed to Mad Decent. He is currently on the roster as two of his new tracks were released under Mad Decent and furthermore, he is taking part in the Mad Decent Block Party. Please do explain in further why I may be wrong,


@SwervingStyle: Reliable sources must be cited for all content additions. Who is Jefree? The song was released under Columbia, who DJ Snake is signed to. The Cashmere Cat label addition was not sourced and they are not listed here, since they would be one of the biggest artists on the label, you can be sure they would be listed there. The Jack U addition should have been supported with a citation to a source and Outkast is most certainly not signed to Mad Decent, was that just vandalism or what?

Pro Era[edit]

Hey. I noticed you pretty much reverted my changes to the article. Before I (or you, or we) put them back I want us to agree on something; the infobox is clearly too long and it sort of makes the top part of the article a bit of an eyesore. Since infoboxes are meant to be a sort of summary I only left the most popular members of the group (obviously Joey Badass, CJ Fly, Kirk Knight, Nyck Caution and Chuck Strangers, plus Powers Pleasant since he's one of the founders of the collective) in the infobox and put that See members below part to let the reader see the entire roster in the Members section. Putting all the musical artists in both the infobox (making it too long) and the section is unnecessarily repetitive in my opinion. My point is even strengthened by the fact that you left the See members below part in the infobox (which maybe should change to See all members below, although not all the members are listed in the article). Davykamanzitalkcontribsalter ego 17:35, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

And I'm not sure whether Kwon Swank's a rapper though. Davykamanzitalkcontribsalter ego 17:36, 3 August 2014 (UTC)
@Davykamanzi: What gives you the authority to pick and choose who to list? You're determination of popularity is both WP:OR and not WP:NPOV. It makes sense to list all the musical members. I would like you to point out any high quality article doesn't. Also the columns you tried to make was not proper in the infobox and the ones in the body were also not proper as they clashed with the image. I only left the members link for anyone that is interested in who the non-musical members are. STATic message me! 17:57, 3 August 2014 (UTC)
I'm not trying to give myself any authority or whatever. It's just my opinion that we shouldn't have to repeat all the members in both the infobox and the section. It doesn't make sense to me. And my reasoning behind the members I named was that since Capital Steez, Joey Badass, CJ Fly and Powers Pleasant are the ones who started the collective, they should be in the infobox, and since then Kirk Knight, Chuck Strangers and Nyck Caution have become prominent members as well, since they appear in most of the group's collective songs and, along with the founders, are usually prominent figures at their concerts and stuff as well. Aside from all that I can agree with you on the matter with the columns. Davykamanzitalkcontribsalter ego 18:06, 3 August 2014 (UTC)
By the way I can't see how WP:OR comes in here. I'm picking out information that was already in the article; I don't need to have done original research for that. Davykamanzitalkcontribsalter ego 18:08, 3 August 2014 (UTC)
@Davykamanzi: Well we do, at least the musical members. I asked you to point me to any hip hop group or band article that doesn't, and you haven't. When you select a few and call them the "prominent members", that is your WP:OR as you have no source for that. We are supposed to list the whole group, not just a select notable few.

Eminem videography[edit]

Would you care to join me in making such a page? There is also an ongoing discussion on his discography page about splitting the article into an albums discography page, a singles discography page, and a videography page. The structure of Justin Timberlake videography would be a good basis for constructing the page. Snuggums (talk / edits) 20:01, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

@SNUGGUMS: I am afraid I would not be able to help you with construction of the page, due to the limited time I have been able to help out on here in the last few months, which has grown increasing less recently. I certainly support the split of the articles, but due to the lack of opposition on the talk page I do not think I need to additionally comment there unless some pops up.

Static Vapor, what's wrong with you? You can't revert edits by more than half a dozen different people, edits that came with summaries, with one shitty edit summary, "vandalism and unsourced content removal". Bullshit. Look at the edits, and look at the terrible condition of the stuff that was removed. You're supposed to be a GA editor: act like one. Drmies (talk) 02:49, 8 August 2014 (UTC)

@Drmies: There is nothing shitty about my edit summary, it explained that revert. You removed over 10,000 bytes of sourced content without a single word in the edit summary, that is most certainly worthy of a warning if you were not an admin. Someone needs to take care with the content removal if there needs to be one and you need to stop adding back the unsourced content. STATic message me! 02:55, 8 August 2014 (UTC)
Partly sourced bullshit fan chat is what you mean. And what is your excuse for all the other edits? Drmies (talk) 03:09, 8 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Static, I got a better idea. Why don't we make this article better? The amount of unsourced information is still immense, though the amount of trivia is more manageable. You know how to find the relevant sources and how to format these articles: the band is important enough to deserve a much better article (though I didn't care much for their show on Stewart's show). Drmies (talk) 13:24, 8 August 2014 (UTC)
@Drmies: What I restored right now was not "Partly sourced bullshit fan chat". Drmies, edit summaries that fully explain your removals would just be nice, instead of edits like this with not a single word in the edit summary. I agree that there was a lot of unsourced trivia, and that is why I only restored that one section. That one section is most certainly worthy of including until there is a separate album article to break the information on to. Try to delve deeper then the Daily Show appearance, it kinda sucked. STATic message me! 16:14, 8 August 2014 (UTC)
OK. Look, there is certainly stuff to be said about that album--but what we're saying now is nothing, nothing of any value whatsoever--just announcements. A Facebook post, a complaint (?) that one guy only worked on two songs, etc.--it doesn't even try to rise above the level of gossip. Plus, I don't see how "RZA has also said he had talked to Adrian Younge about working on a song for the album" is better than "Adrian Younge was to work on one of the songs". "Also" is typically filler, and "said he had talked to" is more verbosity. Note that I didn't even remove it. But have it your way. And that one edit summary you complain about, I had an edit conflict with an IP editor, so please forgive me. Drmies (talk) 22:41, 8 August 2014 (UTC)

Transformers "Billing Block"[edit]

STATicVapor, there's something despicable going on involving one of your edits. You've seemed to have some good edits to show for, but the edit for the Transformers: Age of Extincsion block is obserd and pointless. Why cast only Mark and Stanley when there's clearly more than one maincharacter throughout the movie? What's the purpose? - Theironminer (talk), 10:38, 10 August, 2014 — Preceding undated comment added 14:39, 10 August 2014 (UTC)

@Theironminer: Complain all you want. There is consensus to only list those that are on the poster's billing block. See Template: Infobox film. It says for the starring field you should, "Insert the names of the actors as they are listed in the billing block of the poster for the film's original theatrical release. If unavailable, use the top-billed actors from the screen credits. Other additions by consensus." STATic message me! 17:23, 10 August 2014 (UTC)

Then the artists who made that poster obviously didn't care about putting more actors in the credits who play important characters. The 'starring' section shouldn't have to be like what the poster says, if there's more important characters in the movie than Mark and Stanely, then they should be put in that section. And I consider your previous word choice of "complain all you want" to be very rude and uncalled for. - Theironminer (talk), 15:27, 10 August, 2014

@Theironminer: I guess they didn't, some of the actors you added sure deserved to be listed, but this was not an artist decision, it was a studio decision. If you think it should not have to be what the poster says take it to Template talk: Infobox film, because that is what the current consensus of film article editors is. Or if you want local consensus, wait for someone to respond to you on the article talk page. You are being very rude to me, calling my edit "obserd (sic) and pointless", but you think I am the rude one. STATic message me! 19:43, 10 August 2014 (UTC)

We're both being rude right now. I don't "think" you're the rude one. - Theironminer (talk), 16:39, 10 August, 2014 — Preceding undated comment added 20:39, 10 August 2014 (UTC)

Yes that is what happens when you are rude to someone first, you should know this. Anyways I already gave you suggestions on what to do and you did not respond to any of that. STATic message me! 19:26, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

The Lego Movie[edit]

Your message to my talk page is patronizing and rude. I hope you know that I've been a Wikipedian longer than you; please don't treat more experienced members in such a demeaning way. As for the edit you reverted, WP:V hardly applies. The relevant information is at WP:MINREF, which states that not everything needs a reference. Per MINREF: "Technically, if an article contains none of these four types of material (BLP material, material that could be or was challenged, direct quotations), then it is not required by any policy to name any sources at all, either as inline citations or as general references".--ɱ (talk) 15:32, 10 August 2014 (UTC)

That is kind of sad then, you should not be adding your own original research to articles. WP:V certainly applies and all subjective content MUST be sourced. You are also directly contradicting yourself, it certainly was "material that could be or was challenged", it was tagged with Template:CN, and then I later removed it. So two editors challenged it and you still restored it without a source. STATic message me! 17:25, 10 August 2014 (UTC)
I like how you say (in your edit notice for this talk page) "...I'm not new, so please don't slap me with a generic "Welcome to Wikipedia" warning template", yet you do that to editors who are older than you? I think you're contradicting yourself. Anyway, the content was not subjective or could be rightfully challenged. The information you removed does not need a reference, being simple, understandable, and unquestionable material. Anyone who has seen the film can tell you that those are themes relevant to the film. It should not have been given a CN tag. Whoever gave it the tag was thinking just like you, that 'whatever content doesn't have a citation needs to go'. The CN tag is only used in good judgement of material that is probably false. As stated on MINREF, "Editors are expected to use good judgment when determining whether material has been challenged." If any editor expresses doubt in the veracity of the material, the proper procedure is to put a CN tag and dispute the fact's truth on the talk page, not merely tag it and delete it soon afterwards. Too many Wikipedians have no sense of proper procedure. Until several editors honestly express doubt in that content's accuracy, the content has all rights to stay.--ɱ (talk) 20:32, 10 August 2014 (UTC)
To be clear - you can't just challenge it because you want a citation. There has to be a strong reason for you to doubt the content's veracity. That hasn't been stated by anyone, so as of now, the content by all means has the right to be included.--ɱ (talk) 20:39, 10 August 2014 (UTC)
An older Wikipedia editor, does not mean you are the wiser one. If you created your account before me and you are still violating WP:V and WP:NOR, then that is a serious problem. The content was certainly subjective and per WP:V all content in a encyclopedia should be cited. Your statement of "Anyone who has seen the film can tell you that those are themes relevant to the film", just proves even more that you do not understand the Wikipedia policy of WP:OR. I have seen the film myself, but I would not create a unsourced section about my opinion of the themes the film covers. STATic message me! 04:39, 11 August 2014 (UTC)
You're wrong, an older editor just doesn't necessarily mean I engross myself in the particulars of the many Wikipedia policies and guidelines. I am a largely a contributor of content on Wikipedia and the Commons, I do not specialise in such trivial matters. And you can say that the information is subjective all you want, but it is simply understandable and unquestionable material. Also, I am surprised that when I tell you standard and certainly courteous procedure for removing content, you just proceed to insult me and my knowledge of policy. And WP:V may tell you one thing, though WP:POLICIES and WP:RULES specify that WP:V and the other policy pages are not hard-and-fast rules that must be obeyed; it's the same reasoning behind WP:IAR. I am in the middle of disputing a WP:V inconsistency anyway; I will get back to you on this. It is still clear that your arguments are incorrect just like so many others have argued this; please see Wikipedia:Perennial proposals on 'requiring inline citations for everything'.--ɱ (talk) 11:31, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

Revert per WP:DENY[edit]

Please stop reverting back in edits from a banned user utilizing a sock. The reason for reverting his edits the first time around was clear: Revert per WP:DENY. Every time you revert his edits back in you are circumventing policy and giving the sock a victory. -- Winkelvi 17:39, 10 August 2014 (UTC)

@Winkelvi: The IP address has not been blocked or confirmed as a sockpuppet, and it does not look as WP:DUCK as you think. So you should not be reverting them yet. Since when did they ever edit hip-hop articles? You are jumping to crazy conclusions, if they improved the article then the edit should stay. Once you revert my edit to improve the article, you are reverting me, not the sockpuppet. So you must give a valid reason. Instead of just edit warring and ruining the article.

@Winkelvi: You most certainly were trashing up the article. Thanks for not responding to the points about the IP address not being confirmed and blocked as a sock yet.

AfD Maat Morrison[edit]

Hi, you commented "delete" on Maat Morrison article for deletion. The subject clearly do not fail on WP:MUSICBIO for criteria for musician and ensembles:

11. Has been placed in rotation nationally by a major radio or music television network. 12. Has been a featured subject of a substantial broadcast segment across a national radio or TV network.

as described in the subject, the musician has reached popularity on national radio rotation (in case of him, international) in the United States. Can you please describe me, why you don't agree with the page, is it bad to help Wikipedia adding new musicians?

Have a great day
HaroldSalasI (talk) 04:25, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

@HaroldSalasI: There is no reliable third party source for his music being played on US radio and it must have been put on rotation, not just played. As for 12, the article does not indicate that happened. When it is "as described in the subject", how do you know it is true and they are not just trying to make themselves seem more notable? It is not bad by creating articles, but we have notability guidelines so not everyone that picks up a mic has a Wikipedia article. STATic message me! 16:22, 12 August 2014 (UTC)
@STATIcVapor:, the music has been put on rotation in DR radio and Colombia radio for 3 months, and been played 100+ times in the US. We claim for a little respect in the talk page, and remain civil when you talk about an article or an user. The artist that I've wrote about, is not "anyone that picked up a mic and started singing/rapping or a camera and record himself", so please keep the professionalism by trying not to direct offend people, or I suggest you to please stay our of my article talk page.

Hey Static, it's Shallowharold. I was looking at the new album by The Gaslight Anthem and I noticed that Island Records has introduced a new logo for their label. It's pretty much the world "Island" in capital letters with their signature palm tree logo hidden inside the letter "A". I don't know if you happened to see it, so here's the new logo straight from their website- which is undergoing a change after Universal Music Group decided to dismantle The Island Def Jam Music Group a few months back. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Shallowharold (talkcontribs)

Hi, I'm new to this but I've been trying to follow a discussion that you have been involved in and I follow your point. It seems that the article is discussed in many different places in WP and many of the discussions have been moved making it hard to understand what's going on. Could you help me understand how archives and discussions get changed and moved from the subject's talk page. I noticed that this archive [[1]] which says "do not change" cannot be found on the subject's talk page and the archives that are there seem radically different.

I'm new here on Wikipedia. Can you edit the article I've created, Denzel Curry. I don't know what you mean by reliable and secondary sources, and I don't want it to be deleted. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Nba-fan-11 (talkcontribs) 23:38, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

@Nba-fan-11: When you leave talk page messages, you should sign them with four ~ symbols, just letting you know. As for your question, see WP:RS and WP:IRS. Examples of reliable sources for music subjects are MTV, XXL, The Fader, HipHopDX, Complex, Spin, among many others. See a good example at Wikipedia:WikiProject Albums/Sources. The article is not currently up for deletion, it is a tag that says there are notability concerns. Articles on rappers have to meet WP:GNG or WP:MUSICBIO. I see that is only has two refs to reliable third party sources (DJBooth and Complex), which is not enough. This is why when you created Bas (rapper) I added a bunch of sources to the article, so no one could question the notability. STATic message me! 00:09, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

Yukmouth and reliable sources[edit]

Hey man,

The edit I did was regarding associated acts. I added 2 Live Crew and the 2 members Fresh Kid Ice and Brother Marquis.

Luniz the band of Yukmouth did a featuring on the 2 Live Crew album The Real one. At the time of The Real one Fresh Kid Ice and Brother Marquis were the only two members of 2 Live Crew.

See for yourself

Also I still haven't figured on how to attach reliable sources.

Thank You

@Filmman3000: The associated acts section is not for one or two time collaborations. It is only for the most significant people to their career, you know people they collaborated with 5+ times. STATic message me! 00:13, 15 August 2014 (UTC)
@Filmman3000: See WP:CITE to learn how to add them to the article and see WP:IRS to learn how to identify them. STATic message me! 00:25, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

Screen Gems[edit]

Why do you think Screen Gems is not a distributor? Sony Pictures Releasing is just some name pulled off IMDB. Every Sony movie is released under 3 banners, either Columbia Pictures, Sony Pictures Classics or Screen Gems. Go to the Screen Gems film list and see every one of their film's lists them as the distributor. Koala15 (talk) 00:06, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

Fresh Kid Ice Page[edit]

Dear STATICVapor,

Please Stop tempering with the Fresh Kid Ice page, however I invite you to help me improve it. I have putted a lot of work into it. This gentlemen is one of the founding father and still a current member of the revolutionary group 2 Live Crew, on top of discovering the rapper Flo Rida. If you need citations I will get to it shortly. While Mr. Mixx and Luther Campbell have pages of their own, I don't understand why you are doing this. I also intend to make a page for the other 2 Live Crew Member Brother Marquis. If you want me to improve my writing, my methods, or my style please give constructive feedback but please do not delete my work.

Thank You


@Filmman3000: I already explained my reasoning to you. The subject is not very significant outside of the group and the consensus of Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Fresh Kid Ice was closed as a redirect, so it must stay that way. STATic message me! 21:33, 15 August 2014 (UTC)
@STATICVapor: Well I disagree with that kind of reasoning we would have to cancel the pages of Dj Yella, Mc Ren, other 2 Live Crew Members, Pete Best, all underground artist, and so forth. The guy is in a major band, discovered Flo Rida, and is the first Asian Rapper on a Platinum Rap Album. If 2 Live Crew never had a Gold record I would agree. So no it must not stay that way. I will debate it and it is not obliged to stay this way. Don't get me wrong I respect your devotion, and please leave my work alone.

Denzel Curry[edit]

I edited the article Denzel Curry with more secondary sources as you said. Can you review it now. Nba-fan-11 (talk) 00:08, 16 August 2014 (UTC)


Yeah, uploading images to Wikipedia. I also redirected Young Sinatra: Undeniable to Logic_(rapper). Why was it nominated for deletion? --Nba-fan-11 (talk) 05:07, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

@Nba-fan-11: Did you look at WP:UPLOAD? Do you want to know how to upload album/single/mixtape covers or images of rappers? As for Young Sinatra, I tried to redirect it, but since you challenged it, I was not going to edit war about it. I will clarify in the AfD that I support redirection, but you could also vote for that too. STATic message me! 17:03, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
@STATicVapor: Yeah, I've read that already but I still don't understand it. And yes, I mean both Album covers, and images of rappers. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Nba-fan-11 (talkcontribs) --Nba-fan-11 (talk) 05:45, 17 August 2014 (UTC)
@Nba-fan-11: For album/single covers use this page. For images for rappers, they have to be free images or images you have taken yourself. You can use WP:Flikr to upload some from Flikr. STATic message me! 03:01, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

X (Chris Brown album)[edit]

Hello, allow me to offer my kind critique regarding the apparent edit war over at X (Chris Brown album). I know you mean well, but you shouldn't clutter the page history using edit summaries to communicate when you have a lonely talk page designed for that very purpose. You cannot force BRD on others. BRD can work, BRRRD can not. Thanks for your understanding — MusikAnimal talk 06:07, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

@MusikAnimal: I kept asking them to start a discussion per WP:BRD, but they refused. I just cannot stand unnecessary, poorly-sourced speculation in articles. STATic message me! 15:24, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

Sales figures[edit]

I see that you reverted the edit for the sales figure of All of Me. I believe you misunderstood why Hits Daily Double sales figures are not considered reliable. The HDD figures that are considered unreliable are from the building charts and predictions - they collect only information from the major vendors (one day or 3-4 day sales for the prediction and the whole week for the building chart) and extrapolate sales for all vendors in these charts. The extrapolation of the sales is why those figures are unreliable. However, apart from those charts, HDD uses SoundScan numbers and not their own. For example, in this chart, it gives Jason Aldean's previous album (Night Train) first week sales as being 409,000, however its own building chart that week gave the first week sales as 415,155. The 409,000 figure is the SoundScan number. I can give a few other examples. Note that the sales figures in this particular page, although SoundScan figures, are also not used - not because they are unreliable, but because those figures disappear once the album are out so you can't check the figure in the future, and HDD does not allow the page to be cached. The page I cited however is a news item with SoundScan numbers and does not disappear like the other page. Hzh (talk) 11:05, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

Hi STATic Vapor,

Can you please tell me why you reverted my edit? I added links to her Facebook and twitter pages. Thanks, Robert4565 (talk) 16:12, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

@Robert4565: There was a hidden note right there that says not to include her social network sites per WP:ELOFFICIAL. This is because they are easily accessed from her official site. STATic message me! 01:06, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

Image issues from prblematic user[edit]

STATic, bro how are you? Long time no chats. I see you are aware of the problematic edits from this user and I recently came across a lot of image related issues from him/her, inspite of locating numerous instances where people have explained WP:NFCC. I warned the user twice, once for uploading unencyclopedic images and the other for removing maintenance template, is there anything else we can do? —Indian:BIO · [ ChitChat ] 09:58, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

Double Trouble[edit]

IPs or non-admin users are not allow to revert it as on pages for Rihanna's two songs "Russian Roulette (song)" and "What Now (song)". For "Russian Roulette", can you remove invalid source that is a video? And does not says R&B/soul; and "What Now", replace with genre that what composition section says.

The Night Runners[edit]

Why did you request Deletion of my page The Night Runners?? Did you not look at the references? They are public figures as reported on IMDB, Wikipedia, and many more. --Iampixiedust (talk) 22:10, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

This page should not be deleted because all references have been already previously approved. All references have been well credited from reliable sources such as IMDB, the The X Factor (U.S. season 1) Wikipedia page where The Night Runners were then known as "Illusion Confusion" while being on the show. If you google search "Illusion Confusion X Factor" and look at the images you will clearly see that they are now known as The Night Runners and are public figures. No content on this page violates any copyrights. All content is verifiable, and all terms and conditions are met with The Night Runners Wikipedia page. This page is credible due to The Night Runners being living public figures in the Entertainment industry, specifically the music industry. I kindly ask that you do not delete this page.

Perhaps you should read A7 in the speedy deletion section as it states: It is irrelevant whether the claim of notability within the article is not sufficient for the notability guidelines. If the claim is credible, the A7 tag can not be applied. Often what seems non-notable to a new page patroller is shown to be notable in a deletion discussion. Meaning just because you may not be familiar with the show "X Factor USA" or "The Night Runners" for that matter, does not grant you the right to request deletion of this page when substantial evidence and references have been cited to discredit your accusation of The Night Runners page being deleted.

Yes I did, none of them are third party reliable sources. Well it is now up for AfD, so the discussion shall decide it. I know what X Factor is, but not even group/singer that makes it to the main show gets an article. They must meet WP:BAND. STATic message me! 04:05, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

Abuse from Koala15 - Run the Jewels - need help[edit]

Hi there, I need your help!

I have been watching the activity within the Run the Jewels (album) page and I've noticed that Koala15 ( has been unnecessarily removing other user's contribution to the Run the Jewels album and artists page, despite the contributions being reasonably or well sourced. The recent reasons given by @koala15 for removing other users contribution suggests personal preference. For instance, @koala15 refuses to accept the relevance of non-US labels in relation to the Run the Jewels project. Run the Jewels licensed and released their first album on a non-US label (Big Dada / Ninja Tune), for European release; this information was taken from a valid source. Even El-P of Run the Jewels credits this label with helping to expand its accesibility - see this source:

Is there a way to report a complaint on this user to Wikipedia's admin?


@Fasokanesq: Hello, sorry I will not be much help as the page is currently fully protected due to your two's edit war, which you are both lucky for not being blocked for. However on the subject, Template: Infobox album#Label says "only the record label that the album was originally released on should be specified. Where significantly different versions have been released (featuring alternative track listings) e.g. in the US vs UK, the later release date or record label should be mentioned in the article, for example in a Release history section."

Recent edits to JGramm Beats[edit]

Sup STATicVapor! I recently made a few edits to the article that I had started for JGramm Beats. If you could please review them for me I would greatly appreciated it. Malcolmrevere (talk) 14:44, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

@Malcolmrevere: Out of the references currently in the article, three are considered third-party reliable sources: Complex, Vice and Fact, but out of those three, only the Vice source would be considered significant independent coverage. The other two are only trivial mentions, as the articles are not about JGramm, they only mention him. At this point I think it is a bit WP:TOOSOON for an article on this producer as he is still mostly unknown and reliable sources have not significantly covered him yet. He has yet to meet WP:GNG. STATic message me! 16:26, 27 August 2014 (UTC)


From what you wrote to me at another user's talk page: "Just in the future, assume good faith..." What a crock of shit. Were you assuming good faith when you called me and another editor liars even after we explained how and why we were not being dishonest? Unless you intend on admitting you were out of line in not assuming good faith with me and the other editor, please take your phony piety and policy quoting and put it somewhere, anywhere else but in the light of day where it's total hypocrisy coming from you. -- Winkelvi 19:30, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
