I award The Music Barnstar to Synthwave.94 for his exceptional effort on expanding and —probably— saving from deletion "Overpowered by Funk". –pjoef (talkcontribs) 10:35, 29 April 2014 (UTC)

Ben has anticipated my intention, as always :D. Once, again thank you. –pjoef (talkcontribs) 10:35, 29 April 2014 (UTC)

Tool suggestion[edit]

Hi there, have you considered making use of a tool like Wikipedia:AutoWikiBrowser? It is built for making repetitive editing tasks a bit easier by semi-automating them. For example, you could make a list of articles that contain "New Wave" and tell it to change them to "New wave". You still have to review each change to make sure it's correct, but it might be a lot easier for something like that. Just a thought. --Spike Wilbury (talk) 01:37, 29 May 2014 (UTC)

Yes it's true. However I don't know how tools like AutoWikiBrowser work... But thank you for your suggestion, that reminds me of something I'd like to talk about with somebody. Do you know if it is possible to create a bot (or an automatic tool) able to make changes like this one ? It would help me a lot. Synthwave.94 (talk) 01:45, 29 May 2014 (UTC)
AutoWikiBrowser does some of that type of stuff.. general maintenance and cleanup of articles that you tell it to look at. Maybe you can look through Wikipedia:AutoWikiBrowser/User manual and see if it would be easy to use. I know there is also a tool called Reflinks that automatically fixes and fills out references properly. See User:Dispenser/Reflinks. I don't actually know too much about bots except that they are generally programmed in Python. That is not my area of expertise at all. I do know that if you have a task you would like automated, you can ask at Wikipedia:Bot requests to see if an existing bot could be programmed to do the task. Hope this helps! --Spike Wilbury (talk) 02:01, 29 May 2014 (UTC)
Well, I will take a look at these links as soon as possible. Thank you very much for all of this ! Synthwave.94 (talk) 02:09, 29 May 2014 (UTC)

Ray Crisara[edit]

Did you hear that Ray Crisara just died? Sad news for Let's All Chant fans. :( DBaK (talk) 21:54, 29 May 2014 (UTC)

I didn't know who was Ray Crisara before you asked me this question. Now I know who is this guy but I've been unable to find something related to his death. Where did you get that from ? Synthwave.94 (talk) 22:28, 29 May 2014 (UTC)
Hang your head in shame! <g> He MAKES the record!! (I'm totally unbiased here, of course.) The whole trumpet world is talking about it - he was very highly thought of and has lots of ex-students of great eminence. I'm seeing it on FB and in emails from colleagues, but when I see something citeable, I will either add it in or let you know ... how does that sound? Cheers DBaK (talk) 12:15, 30 May 2014 (UTC)
PS It might well show up here in time. Best wishes DBaK (talk) 12:19, 30 May 2014 (UTC)
Just because I like "Let's All Chant" doesn't mean I know all artists who made this record. This is only one of the numerous disco records I'm listening to ! ;) But thank you for all this infos, I learned something I didn't know at all. Synthwave.94 (talk) 13:14, 30 May 2014 (UTC)
Please don't take the "shame on you" too seriously. :) I am well aware that my angle on this stuff is a minority interest! It was just a joke, not a criticism of your musical knowledge - apologies for any offence ... it was not intended. Best wishes DBaK (talk) 13:25, 30 May 2014 (UTC)
I was a bit surprised by your "He MAKES the record!!". It may be true, but Zager made this record too. ;) Also don't worry, I understood you seems to be a die hard fan of Ray Crisara (and the "trumpet world" ?). Nice to see people like you love sharing knowledge. Once again thank you for all of this. ;) Synthwave.94 (talk) 13:39, 30 May 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. I will let you know if I turn up anything that could help. Cheers DBaK (talk) 15:04, 30 May 2014 (UTC)

Happy New Year (song)[edit]

Could you keep an eye with the page? Make sure if contributors doing unsourced genres. (talk) 16:34, 4 June 2014 (UTC)

Yes of course. And I can clean up the article by the same way. ;) Synthwave.94 (talk) 16:35, 4 June 2014 (UTC)

I appreciate and respect your work around here...[edit]

...but please don't call a contribution an "undo"; your addition of the ref was a new contribution and had little to do with my previous revert. Cheers. Radiopathy •talk• 23:42, 11 June 2014 (UTC)

Oops.. I'm deeply sorry about it ! I would like to apologize if I hurt you with this edit. I'd understood you reverted a genre warrior but please understand I'm fed up to see all those music genres disappearing from infobox articles because they have been altered or simply because they are unsourced. I recognize I reacted a little bit too fast this time. But I see you are clever enough to understand I only wanted to restore "hard rock" with a reference. Nothing against you really ! Keep in mind I appreciate when you revert unsourced addition on Led Zeppelin-related articles, among other things. :) Regards and happy editing. Synthwave.94 (talk) 00:01, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

"Azok voltak a szép idők, barátom"[edit]

Well, you certainly tidied up there. Care to discuss at the Talk Page? Many thanks. Martinevans123 (talk) 20:44, 15 June 2014 (UTC)

A beer for you![edit]

Export hell seidel steiner.png Wanted to say a big big thank you for noticing the dmy issue,

Unbeknowingly I'd done the same thing to all of his singles/albums so took some time self reverting,,
Anyway thank you :)
Regards, –Davey2010(talk) 22:56, 20 June 2014 (UTC)

This is the reason why semi-automated tools should be used with extra care. ;) Synthwave.94 (talk) 23:25, 20 June 2014 (UTC)
Absolutely agree! :), After yesterdays crap I'll most certainly take more care :)

June 2014[edit]

  • you keep reverting my edit on Planet Claire because it is not cited. But my point is, it is predated by Glass by Joy Division in its very odd musical coupling of the Peter Gunn line and the exact same dissonant interval interjecting. But no, you just delete it all, including the fact that it uses the Peter Gunn line. You can edit all right - delete delete. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Gatorshoes (talkcontribs) 02:37, 6 June 2014 (UTC)
Unfortunately, it's your responsibility to provide sources to support any material that is challenged. Granted, the editor who challenges the material may elect to tag it with a {{citation needed}} instead. Walter Görlitz (talk) 03:05, 23 June 2014 (UTC)
Gatorshoes, what you added was unsourced so I removed it. If you can find a source to prove all of this then restore it but do not add unsourced statements again, thanks. Synthwave.94 (talk) 10:23, 23 June 2014 (UTC)


Hi, Synthwave.94! I am Isabella, Barbara's daughter, just wanted to say thank you for your accuracy.

Thanks. ^^ Synthwave.94 (talk) 20:56, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

Royals (song)[edit]

User:HĐ means beat came from "The beat of the minimal pop", but that's not a minimal pop song. For example, Part of Me (Katy Perry song) is a house beat that is not a house song. (talk) 08:28, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

What ? CoS doesn't say the song has a "minimal pop beat", it says "the beat of the minimal pop hit is a total catch". "Minimal pop" is clearly associated with "Royals", not with the beat of this song. Synthwave.94 (talk) 10:22, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

"Somebody's Watching Me"[edit]

One image for the original version is enough per WP:NFCC. Hmm... I didn't know about Beatfreakz version, so its image is necessary. --George Ho (talk) 01:17, 13 July 2014 (UTC)

So in this case why does an "alternative cover" template exists ? I mean I've already seen alternative cover in countless song/album articles and nobody's going to remove them. This other cover is different enough from the German release. Also the image for Beatfreakz version is appropriate, as it is used to make the difference between Rockwell original version and this notable cover version (see Talk:I Want Candy#Fair use of notable cover version single covers for further details). Synthwave.94 (talk) 01:29, 13 July 2014 (UTC)
I can't fully grasp what you were saying. The French edition is unnecessary because... the single is NOT an album, like In My Tribe and Touch (Sarah McLachlan album). I found side labels of the American version, but I prefer the German one. Other cover versions are irrelevant to this discussion. As for other articles, prior issues were discussed elsewhere, like in WP:NFR. Can you give examples? --George Ho (talk) 01:56, 13 July 2014 (UTC)
Ok, it's true the German cover seems to be better for identification purposes. I'm unable to give you examples anyway. Synthwave.94 (talk) 02:17, 13 July 2014 (UTC)

FAC comments[edit]

Hello Synthwave. Do you have some spare time to check the references used in Megadeth, an FA candidate of mine? The review page is here, so feel free to leave your comment/vote regarding the topic. Please respond here whether you intend to get involved in the process, or should I contact another editor. Everything the best and see you.--Retrohead (talk) 08:12, 13 July 2014 (UTC)

Hi Synthwave! Can I count on your input at the FAC, or should I contact another user?--Retrohead (talk) 13:11, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
I'm currently quite busy, both in real in life and on Wikipedia. You should contact another user (if you can do so). Regards. Synthwave.94 (talk) 13:26, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

your edit to Addicted to Love (song)[edit]

Hi. Please do not ever undo a WP:INTDABLINK, as you did here. Doing so causes enormous problems for disambiguators, as it causes the article to appear to have an error needing to be fixed. bd2412 T 14:33, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

but "Addicted to Love (disambiguation)" redirects to "Addicted to Love", which is the disambiguation page, so where is the problem ? Synthwave.94 (talk) 16:21, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
The problem is that direct links to disambiguation pages from mainspace are typically errors, and we generate numerous reports of these errors to be checked and fixed. The reports can't distinguish instances where the made such a link with the intent to point to the disambiguation page, so disambiguators used to spend a lot of time checking such links. For this reason the community adopted the policy of rerouting all intentional disambiguation links in mainspace through "Foo (disambiguation)" redirects, so that it will be clear that each one is intended to point to the disambiguation page. We have several entire subprojects dedicated to fixing intentional links so that they pipe through redirects containing (disambiguation). Cheers! bd2412 T 17:44, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks a lot for your explanation, I understand what's the problem now. I will not change those links any more if it wastes disambiguators time. ;) Synthwave.94 (talk) 19:24, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks - cheers! bd2412 T 21:01, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
