Berliner[edit]

You have reversed my move from "Berliner Gramophone" to "Berliner Records" as you stipulate that the company was never called "Berliner Records." The company was called the United States Gramophone Company and its records were issued under the logo of "E. Berliner's Gramophone." But no one in the collecting or scholarly community uses that; they are officially called "Berliner" or "Berliners;" even EMI calls them that. And the Wiki Labels Project requires that a record label be preferably suffixed with "records." "Berliner Gramophone" is inaccurate in describing the label; that is why I changed it as "Berliner Gramophone" is the name of the machine that played the records, not of the records -- it is like calling a disc of computer software a computer. There is no article about the machine, and I kindly ask that you change it back. Berliner did not use a conventional label, as they did not exist for flat disc records until Eldridge Johnson added one at Victor. If you have any doubt, check the EMI Archive Trust link on the page itself, or this auction listing: http://www.78rpm.com/auction_frame.htm Pinikadia 21:13, 7 April 2014 (UTC)

Studios[edit]

I saw that. But, starting a new section is not responding to an existing one. It is starting a topic. This is responding to an existing topic, in that topic with semicolons. How can I deduce that you were responding to my proposal if you start a whole other topic? I can't. Are you saying you want to move the article to "The Lot"? Please modify for clarity. — Archive!

RCA[edit]

I saw the message you sent me. So you're saying that RCA corp doesn't exist, but thomson owns it and thomson is making their products with the rca brand??? I don't gfet it/ —Preceding unsigned comment added by Guy1423 (talkcontribs) 23:00, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

Oh, I get it! RCA Corporation was discontinued, but the trademark still exists and is used by some companies? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Guy1423 (talkcontribs) 23:11, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Masterworksbroadway.jpg)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Masterworksbroadway.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 05:13, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

Popeye DVD 2[edit]

I'm wondering which version of the DVD I got. I don't think it was the a.a.p. version. Maybe that only went out to some shipments, not all? I would say there are some other quality issues, but we're dealing with 70-year-old cartoons here. Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? 07:36, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

Some of the specials were good. It was interesting to hear Jack Mercer's real voice, which is surprisingly high-pitched. He also sounded like he was reading from a script, but whatever. They had a nice special about Mae Questel. Too bad they didn't have an interview comparable to the Mercer interview. The Fleischer documentary was excellent, and poignant. What they might have accomplished, had they not let personal issues get in the way, who knows? Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? 07:39, 18 June 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for your note. It's still not clear to me what the issue is, but I don't think it's worth going through the trouble. Maybe the original mistaken disc will become a collectible of sorts. Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? 12:55, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

CQ Politics Michigan link[edit]

Thanks for letting me know. I will get on that. America69 (talk) 18:49, 27 June 2008 (UTC)

Elektra Records[edit]

I changed the logo to the last one because the releases of new material up until the absorbtion by Atlantic Records used that logo. Even the Elektra releases under the Atlantic aegis use this logo, so I think it should be the one that one sees when they access the page. The sooner that Time Warner buys WEA back from that Canadian maniac, the better. Peace. —MuzikJunky (talk) 07:00, 30 June 2008 (UTC)

Popeye as a Scot?[edit]

Maybe his Scottish brogue gave it away. Or his Scottish surname. Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? 14:12, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

And Popeye is into spinach. I don't know that that's a traditional Scottish dish. Haggis would be. Popeye has dealt with the Sea Hag, but not with Haggis. Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? 15:11, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

Beatles newsletter July 2008[edit]

AbbeyRoadZebraCrossingRevisited.jpg

WikiProject The Beatles Newsletter
Issue 013 – July 2008

Beatles News
Project News
  • As you may have seen, the talk page banner changed a bit. It has a couple of bugs (most notably the categorisation problems), but the {{WPBannerMeta}} standardisation was long overdue. Thank you to Dendodge for sorting it.
  • The newsletter's back after a very positive reaction, and thanks are again due to Dendodge.
  • Article adoptions: Heather Mills will be a hot topic next month, as the truth will be referenced.
  • The hottest Project page this month has been The Quarrymen (now a GA). It reveals the most accurate history of their early days, because so many other web pages tell a completely untrue story (one web page said they lost a Carroll Levis competition to a woman who played the spoons :)
Other Project news
Member News
  • New members to the project (since the last issue, which was a long time ago) include a lot of names, which can be found here....
  • Project member news:
Issue of the Month

Apart from the usual vandals, there is an ongoing problem with Wikipedia editors deleting free and fair-use photos because they don't think they are of any value to articles, even though this sometimes leaves articles with no photos at all. These editors do not leave notes on talk pages, so if you see that a photo has vanished, check the talk page and the history log.

From the Editors

It's been a while, but the newsletter's back! After a short discussion on the project talk page, seemingly unanimous consensus to bring it back was reached. This issue, and subsequent ones, will probably be shorter - as we kept running out of things to say before! There's a lot to say this month, purely due to the long absence of a newsletter, but we'll keep it as brief as possible.

In order to get delivery by Denbot sorted, the special delivery interface has been changed slightly - but existing delivery options still stand. Inactive participants who want delivery should place their names on this list.


If you've just joined, add your name to the Participants section of Wikipedia:WikiProject The Beatles. You'll get a mention in the next issue of the Newsletter and get it delivered as desired. Also, please include your own promotions and awards in future issues. Don't be shy!

Lastly, this is your newsletter and you can be involved in the creation of the next issue (Issue 014 – August 2008). Any and all contributions are welcome. Simply let yourself be known to any of the undersigned, or just start editing!

Contributors to this Issue
Want to help on next month's newsletter? Don't want to receive these in future? Don't want it subst'd next time? – It's all here.

RE: User:Rebafan11[edit]

Thanks, I caught him last night, and even though I thought it obvious he was another sock, I didn't have any evidence of disruptive editing at the time. I'll check his work again. dhett (talk contribs) 23:20, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

Abbey Road (album)[edit]

The songwriting credit is to "Starkey", not "Richard Starkey", at least on my vinyl & CD; that's why I always render credits verbatim and wlink if necessary, so as not to lie about the credit. --Rodhullandemu 18:30, 29 July 2008 (UTC)

Likewise, on my copes, credit is to "Harrison" rather than "George Harrison". I think the credits should at least be consistent and correct rather than consistent and wrong. --Rodhullandemu 18:46, 29 July 2008 (UTC)

Across The Universe (film)[edit]

Thanks for the comment on my talk page about Across The Universe (film) on the Beatles template. Please note that I did not add this film to the template in the first place, I only modified the formatting. If you are of the opinion that that Across The Universe (film) should not be on the template, feel free to remove it. Personally, I feel that there are a number of off-topic references on this template. --Countdown to oblivion (talk) 13:16, 30 July 2008 (UTC)

I see that you already removed it from the template. --Countdown to oblivion (talk) 13:19, 30 July 2008 (UTC)

Stub[edit]

It may not be a stub okay, its start but not a B. A B is Def Leppard discography, Stone Temple Pilots discography, Pink Floyd discography or Eminem discography but not this one. But it doesn't have sources, ut has track listing at the page, it has a short lead to short, if you want to i can get the leader of the wikiproject discography to take a look at it. He'll probably call it a stub or a start just as me. I'm not goin to revert your edit if you want to denie it.

I can show you the guidline for whats a stub, if you want. --Be Black Hole Sun (talk) 13:32, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

ABN AMRO[edit]

Can you add you input into another stupid edit war involving the Dutch financial institution ABN AMRO: I'm afraid this is a topic I know absolutely nothing about, and if I edit or contribute to talk I could end up making things worse. But good luck. Ward3001 (talk) 17:25, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

If that company calls itself by all capital letters, and legal documents also call it that way, then that's what it is, and it is not wikipedia's place to try to change that by applying so-called "grammar rules" to it. This is the same debate as The CW, and it's worth pointing out that the guy who kept insisting it couldn't call itself that, got himself indefinitely blocked for disruption. [I also posted this comment on the article's talk page.] Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? 17:46, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

It's on my watch list. That guy is hung up on rules, like the late, unlamented Rollosmokes was. The first rule is, get it right. Don't make wikipedia look stupid(er). Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? 18:33, 9 August 2008 (UTC)

RE: ABN Amro[edit]

Please check out Wikipedia_talk:Requested_moves#Removal_of_statements_contesting_proposed_move before proceeding with any further discussion on the WP:RM proposal page. Thanks. JPG-GR (talk) 00:11, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

  • And on a related note calling people anal retentive, while arguably an appropriate description of a class of behaviour, does not really help to avoid drama. Is it likely to encourage them to gracefully back down, or is it drawing battle lines? I'd say the latter. You have the facts on your side, and I believe also the best arguments, it's unnecessary to resort to rhetorical exuberance. Guy (Help!) 21:20, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

Allow me to emphasise Guy's comment - that was uncivil behavior on your part, unnecessary, and not acceptable behavior. Please don't do it again. Georgewilliamherbert (talk) 20:24, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

Request to move article Ron Richards incomplete[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg

You recently filed a request at Wikipedia:Requested moves to move the page Ron Richards to a different title - however your proposal is either incomplete or has been contested as being controversial. As a result, it has been moved to the incomplete and contested proposals section. Requests that remain incomplete after five days will be removed.

Please make sure you have completed all three of the following:

  1. Added {{move|NewName}} at the top of the talk page of the page you want moved, replacing "NewName" with the new name for the article. This creates the required template for you there.
  2. Added {{subst:RMtalk|NewName|reason for move}} to the bottom of the talk page of the page you want to be moved, to automatically create a discussion section there.
  3. Added {{subst:RMlink|PageName|NewName|reason for move}} to the top of today's section here.

If you need any further guidance, please leave a message at Wikipedia talk:Requested moves or contact me on my talk page. - JPG-GR (talk) 05:23, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

Apology from Fangusu[edit]

Steelbeard1, I'm very sorry about confusing the rabbit character in Porky's Hare Hunt with the official Bugs in A Wild Hare. He may not be the gray rabbit that we recognize, but he is supposed to be Bugs in prototype form, right? Fangusu (talk) 10:46, 26 August 2008 (UTC)

You just need to read the history more, before making changes. We had this discussion some months back. "Happy Rabbit" was a figment of Mel Blanc's later imagination. The early rabbit characters are usually referred to as Bugs Bunny "prototypes", and Wild Hare is regarded by cartoon historians as the true debut of Bugsy.

Disputed non-free use rationale for Image:TheBeatlesBoxSet.JPG[edit]

Thank you for uploading Image:TheBeatlesBoxSet.JPG. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this image on Wikipedia may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the image description page and add or clarify the reason why the image qualifies under this policy. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a non-free use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for images used under the non-free content policy require both a copyright tag and a non-free use rationale.

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under the non-free content policy, it might be deleted by an administrator within a few days in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 12:38, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

Polling figures[edit]

The "Notes" at the end of the "Latest Results" section in the article clearly state: "'Likely' states are states that have polled ahead for a candidate in each circumstance for the previous 5 months (including polls in archive)." I agree that Michigan can be considered "Likely Obama" if you use different criteria. However, according to the rules agreed upon for the article Statewide opinion polling for the United States presidential election, 2008, Michigan cannot be considered "likely Obama". Otherwise, Iowa should have been labeled "Likely Obama" for a long time. 85.178.69.10 (talk) 14:31, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Garpax Records[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Garpax Records requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about about a person, organization (band, club, company, etc.) or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the article does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that a copy be emailed to you. cf38talk 15:47, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

You're the sloppy editor. You took off half of a sentence and turned it into a fragment and made a claim that was obviously untrue about what it will do after the conversion, then kept reverting my edits. I was just pointing out your errors. I'm not apologizing because I already corrected it twice and you keep uncorrecting it. Just accept the fact that you were wrong. Also I already told you, the link you just put in is already there, someone made a template (or shortcut) under the external liks section of the article for the exact same link, so putting it there again was unneccessary. Like I said, read the entire message (or page), instead of just what you want to read.TomCat4680 (talk) 04:30, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

Yes I saw your citiation. Its already on the page in the form of a template under the External links section of the article. You must be slow so I'll it explain it for you. Hold shift and press bracket twice then TVQ then a straight line then the callsign then close the brackets

look

it can do the same thing with any other station. for example:

So the link you added is already there. Please don't put it back up. Its unneccessary and redundant.

2010 Governor election[edit]

So, here's a pargraph I deleted:

Potential Republican candidates include 2006 nominee and businessman Dick DeVos, state Attorney General Mike Cox, Congressman Pete Hoekstra, state Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land, Congresswoman Candice Miller, state Senate Majority Leader Mike Bishop

All those people have said to news sources they aren't running/are/or something related? Or am I confused? BrianY (talk) 02:38, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

If I understand, since DeVos said he won't seek the office, there is a possibility that Cox/Lynn Land/Miller/Bishop might run but haven't said anything? If they haven't said anything, it would be speculation. BrianY (talk) 02:44, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

RCA Victor SelectaVision CED video discs[edit]

I just stumbled across your RCA Victor page, and I have to say, it's pretty complete. But, you left out (and I added) a section on the RCA Victor SelectaVision CED video discs from 1981-1985. What is funny is that my old boss at RCA-Camden, Charlie Horton (who also invented the VCR), was sent out to the Rockville Road plant in Indianapolis to run it.

RCA Class-action lawsuit[edit]

You removed the class action lawsuit section I added. You said in the edit summary that it had something to do with GE. Could you tell me more about this because it seems like just about every RCA TV from my high-end 1987 RCA Dimensia to my early 2000s pos RCA Entertainment Series have that problem with the RF input.

CBS Records[edit]

When you want to fix an interwiki you need to fix it on all sites, so in this case you need to link the japanese article to the correct article on the english site or bots like mine will keep adding the interwiki like it looks like has been happening.

Beatles Stereo/Mono[edit]

Just because a stereo mix has vocals on one side and instruments on the other does not make it "unmixed". The stereo mixes on the albums had more reverb and compression than the twin-track session tapes, implying that they were mixed.

The statement that "The first two albums, Please Please Me and With the Beatles, were mixed in mono only" clearly contradicts the information later on in the page that gives mono and stereo catalog numbers for the first two albums. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 202.45.114.67 (talk) 02:39, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

I've fixed the disambiguation; sorry I didn't see your point there. The list of EPs in 'External links' shows a couple of Barry's EPs on Columbia. I've also mentioned two of his hits with the JB7 in the Barry article. I hardly thought it worthwhile to mention the label, especially since the Adam Faith records were on Parlophone, but I did point out there was no EMI label at the time.

Trane/Coltrane[edit]

The reason I moved the page is that "Trane" is more than a nickname. It is completely unanimous with Coltrane, such as "Bird" is with Charlie Parker and "Satchmo" is with Louis Armstrong. Jazz scholars, listeners and fans will most likely search for "Trane" to find material about Coltrane. His legacy and impact on American culture is no less notable than the financial impact of "Trane" the company. Considering all this, categorizing it as Trane (company) and creating a dab page puts both in equal perspective, without giving the company the unduly importance, which also goes against WP:NPOV. Hearfourmewesique (talk) 08:45, 18 July 2009 (UTC)

Most people looking up Trane are looking up the heating and air conditioning company, not John Coltrane. Most people looking up John Coltrane's article would simply use his real name, not his one-word nickname. Steelbeard1 (talk) 20:53, 18 July 2009 (UTC)
This is where you are wrong... it is what I've been trying to explain: even if a smaller percentage of readers will look up "Trane" to find John Coltrane than the HVAC company, it still justifies the dab page. Any particular reason you are so strongly against it? Hearfourmewesique (talk) 12:26, 19 July 2009 (UTC)
Trane Inc. is a leading multinational HVAC company with nearly 100 years of experience. There is no other Trane, Coltrane notwithstanding, in a Wikipedia article. This is different from Satchmo, the nickname for Louis Armstrong which is also the name of a little known computer application. The dab page for Satchmo is therefore appropriate. If there are more than two articles which use the name Trane, then I can see a separate dab page. Steelbeard1 (talk) 13:36, 19 July 2009 (UTC)
There is no other Trane, Coltrane notwithstanding, in a Wikipedia article. I see that sadly, my explanations have landed on deaf ears; Coltrane's legacy and cultural impact is no less than Trane Inc.'s 100 years of experience. I am reminding you again about WP:NPOV since this is clear promotion of the monetary organization over a musical legend. Hearfourmewesique (talk) 14:20, 19 July 2009 (UTC)
Looking over John Coltrane's extensive discography, there are a handful of albums which use the name Trane, but sadly there is no John Coltrane album which is titled "Trane" listed. So my statement, unfortunately, still stands. Steelbeard1 (talk) 21:12, 19 July 2009 (UTC)
The thing is that many people still know him as Trane and these people shouldn't have the HVAC company article just pop up when looking up the word "Trane"... smells a little like spam, won't you agree? Being non-American, I personally felt awkward when that was my search result and I am positive many others felt and will feel the same way. Although his name was never officially fully substituted, he is still known to many as Trane and it is a good reason for the dab page to exist, just like with Satchmo (the company's popularity plays little importance). Hearfourmewesique (talk) 06:16, 20 July 2009 (UTC)

If you look at any article about John Coltrane, they are listed under his real name instead of his nickname. There are examples in which the nickname is more prominent than the real name such as Buffalo Bill instead of William Cody. That's why the Wikipedia article for William Cody is actually called Buffalo Bill. Steelbeard1 (talk) 18:49, 20 July 2009 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for File:Rcaredseal.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Rcaredseal.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use. Suggestions on how to do so can be found here.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

Apology[edit]

I have flipped a couple of times between accusing you of being stubborn regarding a change I proposed, to acknowledging that you were correct, or the problem was not as great as it first appeared to me. Now I'm apologizing again, and I withdraw any accusations made. I do a lot of editing on music related articles, and feel most of my edits are done properly and are well researched, and I don't often make accusations like the ones I made about you. In fact I often jump in to mediate when others make accusations over a misunderstanding. Please accept my apology, and hope to see you around on WP pages. --A Knight Who Says Ni (talk) 19:04, 14 August 2009 (UTC)

Sony Music[edit]

Hey again. I noticed you made some modifications to the history section of Sony Music which I had tweaked over the summer months. The problem right now is in the first paragraph as its contradictory, suggesting it can trace back to 1888, but in the following phrase, to 1929 (which you added). I figured you have more input and knowledge on the history so let me know how we can remedy this. Imperatore (talk) 04:51, 3 September 2009 (UTC)

I'll take a look at the early history section again to see if I can clarify the text further. Steelbeard1 (talk) 12:28, 3 September 2009 (UTC)
Nice! Seems coherent enough now. Imperatore (talk) 17:31, 3 September 2009 (UTC)
The details on Date Records and other historical subsidiaries are nice, but seeing as the article is still very brief, I think including such details makes it look less comprehensive / not getting to the core of things??? Just wanna confirm if these historical/discontinued "sublabels" are notable for the evolution of "sony music". Ultimately, I think the juice of the company history lies in the Columbia Records article; definitely would be appropriate to transfer some info as the columbia article is very well detailed, albeit disorganized at the moment. Imperatore (talk) 02:13, 17 September 2009 (UTC)
As for what is more appropriate for Columbia and more appropriate for Sony Music depends on the time frame. Okeh was acquired by Columbia so it fits in the Columbia article. Epic is considered to be a sister label of Columbia, as was Date. So Epic and Date are more suitable for the Sony Music article. I hope this helps to clear things up. Steelbeard1 (talk) 02:29, 17 September 2009 (UTC)

Release History for digital[edit]

I noticed a pervasive issue with the release history table on albums. Digital format release is usually a common date across all territories of the big four for high profile releases, whereas physical release can vary significantly. On I Look to You for example, the digital release date is the same date under major and minor Sony Music markets, with the exception of the UK under RCA UK in October (justified by iTunes). But as the format reads now, it would appear that the digital release is in-line with the physical release date. Any suggestions?? Maybe wp:albums can help? Imperatore (talk) 23:45, 3 September 2009 (UTC)

We can ask for consensus in the appropriate talk pages. I believe physical media release dates should prevail over digital download release dates. Steelbeard1 (talk) 02:29, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
i would like to add some input since i sourced the majority of the european and international releases for this album. In my experience it varies country by country. what tends to happen especially under Sony Music (whereby the artist is signed to a label who's parent company is sony) is that Sony Music distributes and markets the album in European Countries. The general case appears to be that continental Europe recieves the physical release of an album before the US and UK. With I Look to You the A&R was done Arista Records and so Arista focusses the release in the US - often the US recieves the download at the same time as the physical release. However Arista releases in the UK in partnership with RCA records whom have an unpredicatable pattern in their release dates. For example Ciara's Fantasy Ride was released to Amazon Download on the May 3, iTunes May 4 and CD May 5. As for trying to reach a consensus the only point i would like to make is that sometimes it is difficult to source exact download and physical releases for an album. Sometimes it is only possible to source one and not the other. With the case of I Look to You i refrained from using itunes because it is not accessible to everyone, i chose instead to search for the largest music retailers in those countries and source release dates from there which proven to mostly be phsyical CD releases. If individual release dates can be found for digital and CD releases then they should both be listed however in reality often only one of the release formats is usually found and properly sourced. both Amazon and iTunes confirm that the album is not released till october, something which i cannot understand personally. I hope this has helped. (Lil-unique1 (talk) 01:05, 5 September 2009 (UTC))

Post Masters[edit]

Hi, Steelbeard1. I think you might want to have a look at this, please. The remastered CD of Past Masters excludes from the previous versions three songs: "The Ballad of John and Yoko", its B-side "Old Brown Shoe" and "Let It Be". Now, "Let It Be" is, of course, included on the album of the same name. What's missing, however, from this collection are the other two songs. Am I correct? That is very strange about this. Best, --Discographer (talk) 23:14, 10 September 2009 (UTC)

Disregard, Steelbeard1...I see, it's the mono version. Chat at you later. Best, --Discographer (talk) 23:29, 10 September 2009 (UTC)

Hello, Goodbye[edit]

Hi, Steelbeard1. Well, the way the remastered series has the comma is our answer. You have the honours...Best, --Discographer (talk) 08:52, 12 September 2009 (UTC)

Steelbeard, I took comma back out. It only makes common sense in not having the comma in the song title, as practically everything there is does't show it anyway. Even the remastered series doesn't have it. That's definative enough. Best, --Discographer (talk) 13:48, 12 September 2009 (UTC)
Well, bad news: The German single for "Hello, Goodbye" (see its Talk page) ahows the comma, though Magical Mystery Tour doesn't. Also, the compact disc for the remastered album shows it too. Best, --Discographer (talk) 20:46, 14 September 2009 (UTC)

The Beatles discography[edit]

Hi Steelbeard... I was wondering might you have a look at (click-on) this and see what you think. Best, --Discographer (talk) 12:38, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

The idea is sound, there are flaws which some people would comment on. My quibble is with the "canon albums" list with its inclusion of MMT and PM. Of course MMT was issued as a double EP in the UK and not initially as an LP was it was in the USA. PM was initally issued as two separate CDs and a double LP in 1988 and is considered to be a compilation as opposed to an original album in order to get The Beatles' entire musical output on CD along with the MMT album. Of course, PM was reissued as a double CD in 2009 along with the original British albums and the MMT album as compiled by Capitol in the USA. Steelbeard1 (talk) 14:46, 27 September 2009 (UTC)
I know the biggest concern is with PM, that it is just a comp. album and also what you've said. The only reason I've included it is for the sake of discographical completeness concerning all their singles/songs, and had it not been included in The Beatles Stereo Box Set. However, if the majority of the veteran editors (yourself) of which I'm seeking concensus on in this do not want PM listed, I will remove it without any questions asked. Thanks! Best, --Discographer (talk) 15:29, 27 September 2009 (UTC)
You could add footnotes to MMT and PM to give such info as MMT making the British charts as an American import and that PM was a double compilation album originally issued on separate CDs and a double LP in 1988 to ensure that The Beatles' entire commercial output from EMI was available on CD.
I took your advice, and done just that. I see you have 120 edits done on The Beatles discography, being the only person who has more edits than me. Anyway, the point I'm trying to make, is ...I'm asking... if you could please help me on my sandbox page, and maybe we can turn this discography into an FL status one. I know you can write good (and good narrative prose), maybe you can work on the prose like you've done for the original discography, or do what you feel needs improved, I won't mind. So, you have my permission to edit on that sandbox page, if you like, and when it's all done, maybe we can transfer it over in place of the discography that's already there. I need and want help on this, and you're the best! Thanks! (Awaiting your response} Best, --Discographer (talk) 20:42, 28 September 2009 (UTC) Steelbeard1 (talk) 01:46, 29 September 2009 (UTC)
Also, what do you think about having the track-listings shown for the canon albums? (Curious). Best, --Discographer (talk) 21:25, 28 September 2009 (UTC)
First of all, those footnotes should have <ref>...</ref> right after the title requiring the footnote so users will look for the footnote info. The canon albums can have the track listings. Those revisions I made were made over a period of months and years so I don't know if I have the time to make major changes all at once.
I'd like to work alingside with you and put these track listings in, though I was hoping that might you take care of the refs and anything else you think needs done. You are absolutely correct in that this will take time to do, as I was hoping for it to be done and out by the start of the new decade... so, there's no rush at all. I know there's still much to be done, and I think with us working together on this that we can turn it into a Featured List. I'd rather go about doing this slowly and making sure everything we have is correct, and also that nothing is left out. As you can see, the music videos list is far from done (directors, references). I really would like to make this not only the best we can, but the best appearance-wise too. Thanks! Best, --Discographer (talk) 05:34, 29 September 2009 (UTC)

Would it be OK to shift this discussion to Talk:The Beatles discography? Steelbeard1 (talk) 10:40, 29 September 2009 (UTC)

Sure it'd be O.K. Also, I'm about done with the canon track listings. Best, --Discographer (talk) 19:08, 29 September 2009 (UTC)

Reply[edit]

There is a difference between what publishing credits say and who actually wrote a given song, especially if sources verify that thet two differ. For comparison's sake, film articles always indicate actual writing credits in the infobox, regardless of what the "official" credits are. See WP:Verifiability.

I saw Das' reply and was about to reply to that when I saw that your reply (similar to what I was about to write) was already in the editing area.

We could possibly create a timeline of the music labels from past to present that now make up the big four. It could be based on The Beatles timeline. You've provided UMG's on John Cardinal's talk page, if maybe you get the other three, then maybe we can "copy" them together to form one single timeline for Wikipedia.

Get Back[edit]

Thank you for pointing that out, I didn't know there is a different version. But, by the way isn't almost every single got "single version"/"radio version" of the song? I think they're still considered single from/to promote the album.

For example, The Boy with the Thorn in His Side (song), by The Smiths, which got an "alternate mix" for the single.
Atomic (song) from Blondie, which got 7`` mix, and whole many other I think.

They still considered from the album, rite? CMIIW

The Beatles discography singles[edit]

Hi old Steelbeard1, quick question here, is there such a thing as "canon" singles, and also would that go thru "Let It Be" or "The Long and Winding Road" or something else, and include EMI-only releases worldwide, or just British? Also, since I truly believe you are the most knowledgable person in all of Wikipedia on this very subject, what changes, personally that is, would you (like to) bring about The Beatles discography, if any? Yes, I am curious, as you set the original precedent for this whole thing. Best, --Discographer (talk) 20:28, 19 April 2010 (UTC)

This gets complicated as some of The Beatles' biggest hits (think "Eight Days A Week" and "Yesterday" as examples) were not issued as singles in the UK. Steelbeard1 (talk) 21:30, 19 April 2010 (UTC)
Only UK singles are considered canon then, I take it. That's understandable. Best, --Discographer (talk) 21:34, 19 April 2010 (UTC)
P.S. I can't see any changes that need to be made to The Beatles discography, as I find it "complete". How about you? (I will go along with any ruling you make, but no one else!) Best, --Discographer (talk) 21:39, 19 April 2010 (UTC)

Columbia/Epic Label Group[edit]

You have done some work on the Columbia label, so maybe you can look at recent edits to Columbia/Epic Label Group and see if they are valid. I can't tell because the article has no references. Another editor changed year of founding from 2009 to 2003. I reverted because the change was incomplete (and it's still incomplete; the category still says companies founded in 2009). The editor put it back, and also identified a 2003 album on the label, which I suspect is the reason for the change. The article now alleges this is the label's first release, but there is no citation for this, and the album's article does not mention it. This could just be a guess on the part of the editor. What we really need are some references for the whole article. --A Knight Who Says Ni (talk) 12:33, 20 April 2010 (UTC)

Jewel Records (Shreveport record label)[edit]

Can you please explain to me why you didn't approve of the source I gave you concerning the fact that Jewel Records had a subsidiary label named Sue? You were right when you wrote on the discussion page that the wikipedia article Sue Records had nothing to do with Jewel Records but there really was an unrelated subsidiary label called Sue which is confirmed on two different pages in the "Encyclopedia of the Blues", page 523 and page 937. --Popiloll (talk) 19:49, 8 June 2010 (UTC)

Because it was not made clear that it was a different Sue Records and the citation was NOT verifiable. Steelbeard1 (talk) 19:59, 8 June 2010 (UTC)
What do you want me to do? I can't help that the Encyclopedia of the Blues is not available for reading in Google books. I will get back to you if and when I find a link. --Popiloll (talk) 20:24, 8 June 2010 (UTC)
Ok, I've found a link here. Write 588 or 1002 in the rectangle right above the book and push enter and that will prove that I'm right. --Popiloll (talk) 20:48, 8 June 2010 (UTC)
I'm afraid a review of the cited book at [3] says otherwise. Steelbeard1 (talk) 22:38, 8 June 2010 (UTC)
Perhaps any of the sources given by the encyclopedia could corroborate the statement; Blues Access Magazine no.26 (1996) and Living Blues Magazine no.141 (1998). However, they are not available anywhere on the web unless you buy them. --Popiloll (talk) 05:40, 9 June 2010 (UTC)
I've searched everywhere on the web and I can't find another source that mentions the sublabel Sue. It could have been a very short-lived label for all I know. If you still don't believe in the existence of a subsidiary called Sue despite the fact that it's written in an encyclopedia, feel free to remove that info and I won't interfere. I think I've proven my point. --Popiloll (talk) 06:15, 9 June 2010 (UTC)
A linkable citation was found that Sue Records of Louisiana owned Jewel/Paula/Ronn Records at one time. Steelbeard1 (talk) 14:35, 9 June 2010 (UTC)

File source problem with File:Cameoparkwaylogo.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Cameoparkwaylogo.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear.

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 17:48, 19 June 2010 (UTC)

Garpax[edit]

Is there anyway I can see what was posted that Steelbeard1 edited? Garpax is an important and interesting topic. I'd like to know what was thrown out. I wonder if there may have been a baby in the bath water? Teenking (talk) 00:14, 8 October 2010 (UTC)

The edit was to the Garpax Records article and what was deleted was material not related whatsoever to the record label called Garpax which was founded by Gary S. Paxton. The Garpax name was derived from his name. Steelbeard1 (talk) 10:36, 8 October 2010 (UTC)

Love Me Do[edit]

Since there were two separate versions of "Love Me Do," I thought it was important to note which single it was, and that the single included on 1 was the same as the album, as opposed to the non-album version. Why is this unnecessary? 98.221.129.63 (talk) 05:54, 15 October 2010 (UTC)

Because we are talking about single releases, not album releases. It is common knowledge that the "Andy White" version is the more prevalent version of "Love Me Do" from the album releases. The version with Ringo on drums was the first version released as a single in the UK that peaked at #17 in 1963. The song's article is the place to note the differences between the two songs. So to note that the version that was #1 in the US in 1964 is the one with Andy White on drums and Ringo Starr on tambourine is sufficient detail for the "1" article. The song's article is more appropriate to note the additional details. Steelbeard1 (talk) 12:50, 15 October 2010 (UTC)

Proprietariness of Nielsen rankings[edit]

The removal of the Neilsen rankings were due to a request filed by Neilsen in 2008, in which all information considered proprietary to Neilsen must be removed, including rankings. This eventually led to the wholesale deletion of TV market templates, all because it contains the ranking number.

M-21 (Michigan highway)[edit]

There have been 4 designs of highway marker in Michigan. The first was created in 1919. The second (called by the "M-old" type in the infobox) was created around 1926 or 1927. The third around 1948, and the current design in the early 1970s. M-56 would have been decommissioned in 1984 with the modern design, which is why its infobox in the M-21 article uses the current style, not the older cutouts like M-21A or M-210.

Cavern performances[edit]

I was wondering about exactly how many times the Fabs played at The Cavern Club. It says 292 appearances, but if you look here, I only count 14 times. They played from 1961 to 1963, which is only two-and-a-half years. Any ideas?--andreasegde (talk) 09:31, 18 July 2011 (UTC)

No idea. We need to find a reliable source to settle on a number. Steelbeard1 (talk) 11:56, 18 July 2011 (UTC)

Possible fair-use rationale issue for File:Emicolumbiamagicnotes.jpg[edit]

I'm not formally flagging it as a fair-use violation because my research indicates it was an IP-address editor who added your File:Emicolumbiamagicnotes.jpg image to the Columbia Records (US/current Sony Music label) article quite some time back. However, the image *only* has a fair-use rationale for the Columbia Graphophone Company (UK/former EMI label) article, *not* Columbia Records.

It would be easy enough to copy your Columbia Graphophone fair-use rationale for Columbia Records--especially since it's a rather unique version of the "magic notes" logo (the only one I've seen to have "Columbia Records" written ON the notes themselves) *and* much of the technical details are the same since Sony bought out EMI's rights--but all that's listed about the source of your image is "scanned album cover", presumably from a Columbia Graphophone release *but* of unknown age.

If it's from the pre-1931 period (Columbia US spun off Columbia UK in 1922, but Columbia UK turned around and bought Columbia US in 1925 before being forced to divest it in the 1931 EMI merger), it's probably appropriate for the Columbia US article and the fair-use rationale should be copied with relevant modifications (i.e., title change and rewording the ownership statement for US relevance). However, if it really *IS* from an EMI-era Columbia UK (1931-73) release, it's irrelevant to the Columbia US article and should be removed from there. (It shouldn't be deleted as it IS appropriate for the Columbia UK article.) --RBBrittain (talk) 08:51, 19 July 2011 (UTC)

Official vs. common name[edit]

Hello - I was wondering if you had a chance to read WP:OFFICIAL and its interpretation of WP:NAMING, and what your thoughts were about it. Thanks. Dohn joe (talk) 17:59, 22 August 2011 (UTC)

My opinion is unchanged. Steelbeard1 (talk) 18:13, 22 August 2011 (UTC)
That's fine, but do you at least agree that your opinion is at odds with Wikipedia policy? Dohn joe (talk) 18:19, 22 August 2011 (UTC)
Look at the record label at [4]. Once again, my opinion is unchanged. Steelbeard1 (talk) 18:27, 22 August 2011 (UTC)
Listen, I agree with you that "The Beatles" is the official name of the album, and "The White Album" is a nickname. What I'm saying is that we don't always use the official name of something for the title. Please read WP:COMMONNAME to see what Wikipedia policy is. For example, the official name of Rhode Island is State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations. But we put the article at Rhode Island because that's what people call it. Same here - everyone agrees that "The Beatles" is the official name. But because everyone calls it The White Album, that's where the title should be. Does that make any sense? Dohn joe (talk) 18:48, 22 August 2011 (UTC)
No it does not. The short name of Rhode Island is indeed the common name with the full name used mainly on the state seal. OTOH, there is no record label for this album anywhere in the world that says "The White Album." Steelbeard1 (talk) 21:18, 22 August 2011 (UTC)
I understand. But my question to that would be, what makes record labels the only place we should look when we decide how to title an article? Dohn joe (talk) 21:29, 22 August 2011 (UTC)
Because the record label is is the OFFICIAL LAST WORD on how to describe the contents of an album. Album covers may contain erroneous material as in the case of the original Beatles for Sale LP which lists the "Kansas City/Hey Hey Hey Hey" medley simply as "Kansas City." When the error was noted, it was corrected on the record label, but not the sleeve, although the correction was made on the packaging of future configurations of the Beatles for Sale album. Steelbeard1 (talk) 21:36, 22 August 2011 (UTC)
But my question is, why should we listen to the official last word for Beatles albums, when we regularly ignore other official last words - like state seals, birth certificates, official titles of laws, etc. - when they aren't the common name? What makes this case different? Dohn joe (talk) 21:58, 22 August 2011 (UTC)
It still does not say "The White Album" on the sleeve and record label. Didn't you read my previous comment? Or do you prefer to ignore all the links I gave? Steelbeard1 (talk) 01:14, 23 August 2011 (UTC)

Hi Steelbeard - I wanted to say, first of all, that I very much appreciate all the research and links that you have provided on a number of occasions that show that the official name of the album is, and always has been, "The Beatles". As I've told you before, I agree with you. To me, there is absolutely, positively no doubt whatsoever that the official name is "The Beatles". "The White Album" is a popular name for the album, and has never been the official name of the album. I agree with you on that 100%.

So, why do I keep arguing to change the article name to "The White Album"? Because Wikipedia does not always use the official name for article titles. It is Wikipedia's policy to give preference to common names. Not my policy - Wikipedia's. Sometimes there are good reasons to use an official name. But "because it's official" is not one of those good reasons. Does that make any sense at all? I'd suggest looking at Sarek's arguments in opposition and LtPower's arguments in favor to get a sense of what Wikipedia policy says. And finally, once more - thanks for your diligence in compiling the links and official references. Dohn joe (talk) 21:32, 24 August 2011 (UTC)

The common name is not the official name. The redirect from the common name to the official name is sufficient and need not be changed. Also, for the sake of brevity, the official name is shorter than the popular name. But that does not preclude making the shorter popular name the name of the article. CCR goes to a disambig page and directs the reader to go to the Creedence Clearwater Revival article, for example. Steelbeard1 (talk) 21:38, 24 August 2011 (UTC)
Okay, but let me ask you this, and forget music and the Beatles for now: do you agree that there are times when Wikipedia chooses the common name instead of the official name? Dohn joe (talk) 21:42, 24 August 2011 (UTC)
Actually it is NOT Wikipedia which decides, it's a consensus of editors of the article in question. An anal retentive member of the MOS police tried to rename the ABN AMRO article into "ABN Amro" to the chagrin of ABN AMRO followers such as myself as I was a customer of an ABN AMRO bank before that bank was sold. The official name is ABN AMRO in all-capital letters. The Talk:ABN AMRO page is still longer than the actual article because of the edit warring. Steelbeard1 (talk) 21:47, 24 August 2011 (UTC)
Okay, now we're getting somewhere. So, would it be fair to say that there are no policies or guidelines that you would ever find binding on an editor of Wikipedia? Or is that going too far? If so, what do you have to say about Wikipedia's policies and guidelines? Dohn joe (talk) 21:57, 24 August 2011 (UTC)
Actually, there is a good Wikipedia guideline, in which "policy" loses to prevailing consensus: WP:IAR. Steelbeard1 (talk) 22:00, 24 August 2011 (UTC)
So if it turns out that whoever closes the discussion at Talk:The Beatles (album) decides that consensus wants it at The White Album, you'd be okay with that? Dohn joe (talk) 22:05, 24 August 2011 (UTC)
If there is no consensus, and that this stage there is no consensus, the article stays as it is with the title The Beatles (album). Steelbeard1 (talk) 22:07, 24 August 2011 (UTC)
I agree. But I asked you a what if. Dohn joe (talk) 22:09, 24 August 2011 (UTC)
Again, no consensus means article stays the same. ¿Comprende? Steelbeard1 (talk) 22:13, 24 August 2011 (UTC)

RE:August 2011[edit]

Thank you, captain obvious, I did not notice from my watchlist, till u told me. :P --Yeepsi (Talk to me!) 14:23, 25 August 2011 (UTC)

As I own a copy of 20 Greatest Hits (Parlophone version, to be exact), mine didn't come with an EP. Am I missing the EP? --Yeepsi (Talk to me!) 14:47, 25 August 2011 (UTC)
I believe it was a limited edition EP when it was originally released. Steelbeard1 (talk) 15:17, 25 August 2011 (UTC)
I believe you got ripped off because all eBay listings of this album include the EP. Steelbeard1 (talk) 15:29, 25 August 2011 (UTC)
Well, I'm rather annoyed now. --Yeepsi (Talk to me!) 15:36, 25 August 2011 (UTC)
Do you have a later repackaging? The citation shows a 20-track LP and the 3-track EP complete with front and back cover photos. Steelbeard1 (talk) 16:10, 25 August 2011 (UTC)
I'll pull my copy off the shelf and get back to u, in a few mins. --Yeepsi (Talk to me!) 17:27, 25 August 2011 (UTC)
I have a first pressing, all first pressings apparently don't come with the EP (I've been cross referencing with Discogs). --Yeepsi (Talk to me!) 17:37, 25 August 2011 (UTC)
As u may have noticed the links are now less likely to rot. --Yeepsi (Talk to me!) 18:27, 25 August 2011 (UTC)
Hi, yes me again. To quote wat I added to the talk of The Number Ones. "Should we add the tracklist for the cassette version as well? It's different." --Yeepsi (Talk to me!) 15:06, 27 August 2011 (UTC)
Yes, along with mention in the text that the cassette version contains all 23 tracks because cassettes do not have the length limitations which LPs have. Steelbeard1 (talk) 16:42, 27 August 2011 (UTC)
Should we include an image of the EP cover? --Yeepsi (Talk to me!) 15:32, 28 August 2011 (UTC)
Looking the EP sleeve, is it similar to the gatefold design inside the LP sleeve? If so, yes. Steelbeard1 (talk) 16:39, 28 August 2011 (UTC)
Alright, I've added the image, tell me wat u think. --Yeepsi (Talk to me!) 21:50, 28 August 2011 (UTC)
It should have a caption such as "Bonus EP sleeve." Steelbeard1 (talk) 02:46, 29 August 2011 (UTC)
Yea, um.. I don't know how to add captions. --Yeepsi (Talk to me!) 14:10, 29 August 2011 (UTC)

[edit]

Hi Steelbeard1. Could you tell us what the logo represents? Maybe that could be added to the article? Many thanks. Martinevans123 (talk) 22:32, 19 January 2012 (UTC)

This is the current logo, dating back to the 1960s, used by the current owner of the Chess catalogue and trademark, Universal Music Group, at the official Chess web site at http://www.chessrecords.co.uk/ Steelbeard1 (talk) 22:47, 19 January 2012 (UTC)
Yes, thanks, all good stuff. But I meant figuratively, what does it depict. Or what was it's inspiration. It looks a little like an amonite, or perhaps even a seahorse, but (of course?) not much like any chess piece. Maybe no-one knows. Martinevans123 (talk) 23:17, 19 January 2012 (UTC)
It's a stylized knight chess piece. Steelbeard1 (talk) 01:30, 20 January 2012 (UTC)
Oh I see. Any reason for the Knight? Is there a source which says this? - it wasn't completely obvious to me! Thanks. Martinevans123 (talk) 08:43, 20 January 2012 (UTC)
If you look at the old blue and white Chess label from the official Chess Records web site, the three chess pieces shown on the label include a knight. Steelbeard1 (talk) 12:05, 20 January 2012 (UTC)
Yes, that's quite clear. But the "current" version, which appears in the article info box is, as you say, quite stylized. If there is no citable source which describes the logo and/or its origins, would it be WP:OR to add a summary of what you have just explained above? Or maybe it's just not notable. Thanks. Martinevans123 (talk) 12:21, 20 January 2012 (UTC)
According to [5] the logo design dates back to 1965. Steelbeard1 (talk) 18:29, 20 January 2012 (UTC)
That's a great source and I think could be used in the article, if it isn't already. The horse is much clearer in the early versions. Thanks. Martinevans123 (talk) 14:33, 21 January 2012 (UTC)

Hatnote on Blood libel[edit]

Personally, I can't see that the hatnote is offensive. But if you or others think so, I have said that I have no objections to alter the language.

a.a.p.[edit]

Yes, Turner/Time Warner owns the Associated Artists Productions library, but the a.a.p. name is part of MGM because a.a.p. became United Artists Associated and then United Artists Television Distribution. King Shadeed 00:51, March 30, 2012 (UTC)

But when a company is acquired and absorbed into a subsidiary of the acquiring company, the absorbed company becomes defunct. Comprende??? Steelbeard1 (talk) 10:35, 30 March 2012 (UTC)
True. Here's another. If a company sells its library to another company, then the library doesn't count as a company subsidiary. Either way, defunct companies that has been acquired by another and has been folded still counts. While on topic, I think you'd better look at the Filmways and American International articles because they too are defunct but still has the MGM subsidiary category. King Shadeed 11:27, March 30, 2012 (UTC)
By the way, sorry to bring up the topic like that. King Shadeed 11:42, March 30, 2012 (UTC)

AIP and Filmways are also defunct so they are NOT MGM subsidiaries. The absorbing company, Orion Pictures is still technically an MGM subsidiary. I deleted the "MGM subsidiaries" links because that is not the case with AIP and Filmways. Steelbeard1 (talk) 16:06, 30 March 2012 (UTC)

So what do you suggest in the meantime? Use a Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer category? King Shadeed 13:21, March 30, 2012 (UTC)
Only if the unit is still active on paper. Orion Pictures, yes. AIP, Filmways, a.a.p., no. Those three units stopped existing before MGM acquired the libraries. Steelbeard1 (talk) 18:26, 30 March 2012 (UTC)
Then I think we'd better do the same thing to The Cannon Group. I was about to suggest using Category:Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer" on them. King Shadeed 17:33, March 30, 2012 (UTC)

Formal mediation has been requested[edit]

The Mediation Committee has received a request for formal mediation of the dispute relating to "The Beatles". As an editor concerned in this dispute, you are invited to participate in the mediation. Mediation is a voluntary process which resolves a dispute over article content by facilitation, consensus-building, and compromise among the involved editors. After reviewing the request page, the formal mediation policy, and the guide to formal mediation, please indicate in the "party agreement" section whether you agree to participate. Because requests must be responded to by the Mediation Committee within seven days, please respond to the request by 20 July 2012.

Discussion relating to the mediation request is welcome at the case talk page. Thank you.

Request for mediation accepted[edit]

The request for formal mediation of the dispute concerning The Beatles, in which you were listed as a party, has been accepted by the Mediation Committee. The case will be assigned to an active mediator within two weeks, and mediation proceedings should begin shortly thereafter. Proceedings will begin at the case information page, Wikipedia:Requests for mediation/The Beatles, so please add this to your watchlist. Formal mediation is governed by the Mediation Committee and its Policy. The Policy, and especially the first two sections of the "Mediation" section, should be read if you have never participated in formal mediation. For a short guide to accepted cases, see the "Accepted requests" section of the Guide to formal mediation. You may also want to familiarise yourself with the internal Procedures of the Committee.

As mediation proceedings begin, be aware that formal mediation can only be successful if every participant approaches discussion in a professional and civil way, and is completely prepared to compromise. Please contact the Committee if anything is unclear.

FYI[edit]

My views on this are quite simple. An admin telling a user to "grow the fuck up" is absolutely unacceptable under any circumstances and is ground for immediate desysopping. If we care about having a serious, thoughtful, kind, adult and mature community (which I assume was the sentiment behind that unseemly outburst) then we have to model that behavior ourselves as admins. There's a bit of sad irony in behaving in a juvenile and bullying fashion in an attempt to get others to behave better. Bwilkins, I recommend that you turn in your bit and take a break from being an admin for 6 months and then return if you feel you can handle the job in a more responsible fashion.--Jimbo Wales (talk) 13:49, 20 July 2012 (UTC)

Hello. This message is being sent to inform you that there is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard regarding an issue with which you may have been involved. Thank you.

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Please be particularly aware, Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made; that is to say, editors are not automatically "entitled" to three reverts.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing.

Question about mass edits[edit]

I am wondering why your changing the names of the record companies - when the refs clearly indicated the former name was the one used at the time? Is there an ongoing talk or consensus to change all the companies to there current name over the ones used at the time that would be historically correct? Moxy (talk) 17:30, 24 August 2012 (UTC)

Great reason... but it would be best to keep the right name of the time and just redirect the link to the right page...now we have many article listing companies that were not even formed at the time. How many have been done in this manner...is there alot to go back to and fix?Moxy (talk) 17:40, 24 August 2012 (UTC)
OMG have you changed all those links with the new company names? Do we have 1000 of edits that need to be fixed back to the proper name with the right link?Moxy (talk) 17:48, 24 August 2012 (UTC)
O i see ..some do have CBS left in place with a new link ..I see....Odd we dont have redirects for the 2 different companies with the same name. Well actually its now 3 that use this name but O well.Moxy (talk) 17:55, 24 August 2012 (UTC)

Page moves[edit]

Hello, Steelbeard1. I spent some time this morning cleaning up the mess of the history of CBS Records. Because you have been editing here frequently for the past six years, I assumed that you knew the correct way to rename a page, which is by using the Move function at (usually) the top of the page display. Perhaps I shouldn't make such assumptions, so please let me explain -- when you copy text out of one page (like the old CBS Records (disambiguation) and paste it into another page, you break the continuity of the page history. This is needed for attribution and copyright purposes, and splitting it is undesirable. This has nothing to do with whether the title of the page is correct or not, but rather with the method of changing the title. There is a right way and a wrong way to change the title of a page, and you used the wrong way three straight times, even after being told it was wrong. Please don't ever do that again. --R'n'B (call me Russ) 15:07, 29 August 2012 (UTC)

I usually use the move section, but I found that the title I want to move to was locked forcing me to do the copy and paste type of move which we know is wrong. Steelbeard1 (talk) 15:12, 29 August 2012 (UTC)

CBS News[edit]

I think I figured out why Norton began editing the article on the unrelated 2006 CBS Records, instead of creating an article on the pre-Sony CBS Records and requesting a move to the CBS Records page (which is what he should have done and what other editors advised him to do). Apparently, he was indefinitely topic banned from creating new articles. This may explain why he began inappropriately editing the page on the 2006 company, starting this whole mess. I hope you haven't been too exhausted by this dispute, but this might be a hint at why it began in the first place.--SGCM (talk) 23:35, 5 September 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for sharing the info. Should that be a factor in the discussion we are having right now? Steelbeard1 (talk) 00:50, 6 September 2012 (UTC)
I've already mentioned it in the MedCom discussion, as part of the history of the dispute. I think it's the reason why he started editing the 2006 CBS article (although I can't be certain). He wasn't allowed to create a new article on the pre-Sony CBS Records, so instead he started changing the 2006 one.--SGCM (talk) 00:58, 6 September 2012 (UTC)

We were talking ... about trademarks[edit]

I thought you might find this interesting:

LAUREN LEE GAUCK, v. HOOMAN KARAMIAN et al, p. 10 (“... The TPRPA “does not prohibit all unauthorized uses of another's name or likeness.” Apple Corps., 843 F. Supp. at 347.(emphasis in original). Rather, the statute is “narrowly drawn,” id., “proscribing only the unauthorized use of another’s name or likeness in advertising.” Id. at 347 n.2. The limited Case scope of uses prohibited by the statute was explained in Apple Corps. In a Beatles look-alike performance case, the court granted the plaintiff’s motion for partial summary judgment, finding that, while the defendants’ advertisements for their performances did violate the TPRPA, the performances themselves did not. Id. at 347-49. Even though the defendants engaged in the performances as a commercial endeavor, the court reasoned that defendants’ use of the Beatles’ personas during the performances and the Beatles logo on the group’s bass drum did not violate the TPRPA because the statute only forbids use of name or likeness for the purpose of “advertising” or “soliciting” purchases of goods or services.

Discussion about Newyorkbrad's closure of Beatles RfC[edit]

Hello. This is to let you know that there is currently a discussion at User talk:Mr. Stradivarius#RfC closure questions about Newyorkbrad's closure of the RfC about whether to use upper-case "The" or lowercase "the" in mid-sentence in articles about (t/T)he Beatles. You are receiving this message because you were involved in the mediation case that led up to the RfC. Some editors have expressed dissatisfaction with the caveat in Newyorkbrad's close that "[t]he suggestion that editors should try to structure sentences to avoid unnecessary mid-sentence use of "the Beatles" remains a valid one", and the discussion is focused on how that caveat is affecting the editing decisions in Beatles-related articles. There is also the opportunity to discuss other aspects of the close should the need arise. Please see the points at the top of the discussion thread and leave a comment if you think it is appropriate. Best regards — Mr. Stradivarius (have a chat) 13:40, 19 December 2012 (UTC)

Violating Beatles RfC[edit]

Please note that this type of edit is simply not allowed--it's somewhere between edit warring and disruptive editing. The RfC was clearly closed to state that the "t" in "the Beatles" must be lowercase. I see that you do not agree with that; however, the closure is final until such point as consensus changes; you cannot unilaterally override that consensus. If you continue in that behavior, you will be blocked from editing. You have to live with the fact that consensus does not always go your way on Wikipedia--that's the nature of a collaborative project. Qwyrxian (talk) 12:23, 20 December 2012 (UTC)

re: MGM Music[edit]

re: "Your edit to the MGM Music article was reverted because it contains false info. A citation was added from [3] to back up the current edit."

My edit reverted an edit which was adding unsourced information. That's a poor reason to leave a message on my talk page about adding "false info". ChakaKongtalk 15:33, 26 April 2013 (UTC)

The edit inserted info which was clearly incorrect which is why it was reverted with citation added. Steelbeard1 (talk) 17:27, 26 April 2013 (UTC)
It was NOT information I added to the article. As I said, I was merely following guidelines by reverting an unsourced addition. If it was "clearly incorrect" it should have been corrected with a proper citation to back it up. It wasn't and that has nothing to do with me. ChakaKongtalk 17:33, 26 April 2013 (UTC)

ChakaKongtalk 20:43, 26 April 2013 (UTC) ChakaKong has been reported. I did NOT make threats or harrassed him, what he did was self-inflicted due to his erroneous editing which I called out and he refused to acknowledge or apologize for. Hello. There is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents regarding an issue with which you may have been involved. Thank you. Steelbeard1 (talk) 22:01, 26 April 2013 (UTC)

I sincerely hope this is the final communication I have with you and that you come to your senses and cease your harassment. The Incident Report which you inexplicably filed against me ("totally silly complaint" I believe was the terminology they used) was immediately closed as "a waste of time". I urge you to not follow through on your threats to wikistalk me. You don't seem to have a history of unusual behaviour here, so it would be a shame for you to get yourself blocked. Take care. ChakaKongtalk 14:54, 27 April 2013 (UTC)

Steelbeard1, your behavior is indeed considered wikihounding. This is disruptive, and you need to stop. If you don't, further consequences may be considered. GFOLEY FOUR!— 16:38, 27 April 2013 (UTC)

Warner Classics and EMI Classics[edit]

Thanks for your message. WEA's classical division is called Warner Classics but its labels are Erato Records and Teldec Records. Nothing has ever been released in that fashion. WEA has been so ignorant over this division during the last decade that the wording here over the absorption over EMI Classics is ambiguous. I worked in the industry for many years in the retail sector, so I have first-hand experience with this. You should also note that ReJoyce, the first release under the new regime, features the Erato logo in EMI red. Thanks very much. Peace. —MuzikJunky (talk) 01:17, 1 August 2013 (UTC)

Sent reply to MuzikJunky proving he is wrong. Joyce DiDonato was a Virgin Classics artist before the Warner Music takeover to give one example and gave too many examples from the EMI Classics web site of upcoming releases bearing the blue Warner Classics logo.

I-94 in Mi[edit]

I'm glad you're enthusiastic about editing this article, however I placed the {{inuse}} template at the top of it so that I could complete my revisions without edit conflicts. The more you edit while I'm attempting to expand, update and re-cite the history of this freeway, the longer it takes me to complete my work because of conflicts. Sometimes the multiple searches with newspaperarchive.com and news.google.com take lots of computer resources, so I may have to save in the middle of longer edits of the history to avoid losing my work. I will remove the template from the top of the article when I complete my revisions. Imzadi 1979  17:43, 22 August 2013 (UTC)

M.I.R.S. Citations (subscription firewall discussion)[edit]

Sir, please allow me to first open with how much I appreciate your vigilance and diligence. I'm a bit new at this, and am grateful for the seasoned veterans who provide oversight and keep content accurate. That said, regarding our discussion on the United States Senate election in Michigan, 2014, specifically the use of media citations requiring a subscription, I've read the discussion on the Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard. If I read the discussion correctly, there is "nothing wrong with using a subscription source" as a reference (apparently, Wikipedia has a policy on this), and this isn't a violation in and of itself.

December 2013[edit]

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at Michigan gubernatorial election, 2014 shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

To avoid being blocked, instead of reverting please consider using the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. See BRD for how this is done. You can post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection. --2602:304:B0FD:19C0:90AA:941F:B0AF:76CF (talk) 02:02, 29 December 2013 (UTC)

Earliest I-69 alignment in Michigan[edit]

I have to challenge your reverting of my edit which shows, with the citation at [7] that the earliest portion of the future I-69 freeway opened in 1959 in Genesee County, Michigan. Steelbeard1 (talk) 21:53, 18 January 2014 (UTC)

A few points:
  1. Michigan Highways cannot be used as a source in articles. The site is self-published by Chris Bessert, who is a cartographer by trade not a historian. Because of that, no noticeboard has said that any of the exceptions at WP:SPS apply. Relying on it is ground to have the article delisted as a Good Article and jeopardizes the A-Class status for which it is currently being reviewed. If you look through all of the Featured Articles and the rest of the Good Articles on Michigan highways you will see that none of them use the website for more than an external link, period.
  2. When adding sources to an article, it is generally a good idea to make them match the established citation style already present. This goes especially for articles that are GAs or FAs. No matter what though, you never want to add bare URLs as citations per WP:Linkrot. Even if the website is stable (and Michigan Highways is slowly being overhauled to split every highway to a separate page which is slowly breaking the links), our readers should at a minimum get author, date, and title information so they can evaluate the reliability of the cited sources.
  3. An article lead does not need citations if the information present is cited below in the body of the article. This rule does not apply to things like direct quotations which always have to be cited.
  4. The information you added does not match the information in the body of the article. You're relying on Bessert to say that the freeway near Lennon opened in the 1950s when the cited information in the body of the article says "by the middle of 1960".
In short, your addition can't stand as it was made. Imzadi 1979  21:57, 18 January 2014 (UTC)
Also, you may want to set up archiving on your talk page given the length which means it hard for others to load your page on mobile or other devices. Imzadi 1979  22:24, 18 January 2014 (UTC)

Ambassador Bridge[edit]

In this edit to Ambassador Bridge you claim "a twin span adjacent to the Ambassador Bridge, by itself, does not address Canadian concerns about traffic on Huron Church Road in Windsor, although a majority of the stop lights commonly cited will be removed by the planned expansion of the 401." to be a "misleading sentence" and add "...which would connect to the downriver NITC bridge."

I'm no Matty Moroun fan, but completion of the Windsor-Essex Parkway in 2015 would reduce the number of stoplights even if one exits the 401 to the old bridge on Ontario Highway 3 because the trucks must currently get off the 401 at what will be exit 11 and take Huron Church Road. Once the WEP (under whatever name) opens, they'll get off at exit 3, the last exit before the E.C. Row Expressway (Ontario Highway 2) concurrency. That saves a few lights, even if it's a poor substitute for a bridge to Delray which would make all the lights go away. What's in the article is therefore technically true - and the crossing will likely operate in exactly that configuration between the 2015 WEP completion and the 2020 NITC bridge opening at the rate things are going.

Buddah Records[edit]

First of all, "other stuff exists" means that just because an article has or does something a certain way, that another article should also follow that convention. I also looked at the Dot Records article, which clearly indicates it was a revival (with the original label owner, no less), and it additionally has the same name as the old label. So there is no basis for comparison here.

The Buddah article does not indicate that Sony revived the label. It states, in point of fact, that a producer with Sony decided to form his own imprint under Sony called Flying Buddha. It has a similar name to a defunct label Sony used to have, but you are the only person making that connection. There are no articles about the label that say anything about the two being related, not even in direct quotes from Salaam Remi (the founder and producer) himself. Do you have a verified source that specifically states that Flying Buddha is a revival of Buddah?

The burden of proof is on the person who wishes to add information (see the very first part of WP:V), and that is what the issue is here. Another editor has also reverted your edit for basically the same reason. MSJapan (talk) 21:33, 8 February 2015 (UTC)
