Link FA[edit]

Are you sure you aren't mistaking the emu emu vandalism Mindspillage removed for an effect of Link FA?--Gmaxwell 05:41, 12 September 2005 (UTC)

  • Yes, that must have been it. —Wahoofive (talk) 14:46, 12 September 2005 (UTC)

Time Signature[edit]

I did alot of editing on this page but my changes seem to have disappeared! Are they being kept for some other use or should I retype them in?--GClef 17:56, 13 September 2005

Click on the History tab at the top of the page to see if somebody changed them back. I don't see your screen name there at all; are you logging in when you do edits? —Wahoofive (talk) 17:35, 13 September 2005 (UTC)
No - I didn't realise I needed to; I'm relatively new at this. Should I get a proper username - i.e., one in blue, as opposed to red? But (two minutes later), upon checking, I see that someone did in fact remove that whole section. I shall take the opportunity to ask you, W'five, should I put that information under Compound Metre, or is it better on the Time Signature page, in which case might you restore it? I'm reverting to my FClef name, which I prefer.?--FClef 22:25, 13 September 2005
Not being sure which edits you mean, I can't tell whether I like them. This edit added quite a bit about compound time signatures, which is still there. Yes, I encourage you to log in when you edit. This allows you to keep a Watchlist and makes it easier for others to contact you -- as you are contacting me -- and determine which edits are yours, plus it automates signatures -- I never have to type my username but can just type ~~~~. For more information see Wikipedia:Why create an account?. —Wahoofive (talk) 23:57, 13 September 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for the advice. My changes ARE still there! (sweet mystery of life: they were gorn yesterday) I have created an account. But I can't understand why my name is still in red and yours is in blue. What is the significans of the symbols you type before your tildes when signing out (the bit about the mdash)? How do I join wikipedian Musicians and is it necessary? Any other steps I should take? Many thanks for guidance. —FClef 16:13, 14 September 2005 (UTC)

  1. When you click on my screen name, you get to my user page, which I created. Yours is red just because it's empty. Click on your red name and you can put something there; then it will be blue (or purple).
  2. If you add the text [[Category:Wikipedian musicians|FClef]] somewhere on your user page, you'll show up in the category. It's strictly optional.
  3. Normally when you sign with the four tildes, it just puts your screen name and the date. I've customized my signature to add the mdash and the talk link. This is also optional; you can do it via the "Preferences" link at the top. See Wikipedia:Preferences. —Wahoofive (talk) 16:30, 14 September 2005 (UTC)

back off[edit]

Don't accuse me of writing shit that i didn't- I always sign my name when I write comment. This article is not spam anyway to respond to your post- what, are you in with the deletionist crowd or something?

Love the Lists of Songs proposal[edit]

Thank you!!! Thank you!!! Thank you!!! I have a new wiki-hero!!! :) Xoloz 04:36, 27 September 2005 (UTC)

Glad you like it! —Wahoofive (talk) 05:01, 27 September 2005 (UTC)
  • I'll go and digest that proposal. Your proposal would take care of a number of lists I consider to be unencyclopedic. But I'm afraid it would also kill List of songs with nonsense lyrics. It probably needs some perfecting to get wide-spread support, but it's a good start. - Mgm|(talk) 07:41, 27 September 2005 (UTC)

Wahoofive,

I have expanded the article considerably and added references so that it is now longer a stub. I would be grateful if you could have a look at it. Capitalistroadster 10:42, 12 October 2005 (UTC)

Saying farewell[edit]

Wahoo,

I guess you're not aware that I've been enduring an RfA that has gone hideously wrong - indeed it's turned into an abusive, highly personal trial. In five days, it has turned me from a loyal, hard-working Wikipedian into an enemy. I'm so disgusted with the process that I'm walking out (with the two excerpts, regrettably, since I arranged the copyright, and the owner has readily agreed to withdraw permission). It's all very sad and unexpected.

I do wish you, RobertG et al the best in making the musical part of WP as good as possible.

Hi, Ive just found that you were categorizing Czech hip hop, so why Hip hop, Czech? Because than it is in Hip hop by nationality under H!:(

I have no idea what you're talking about. —Wahoofive (talk) 21:10, 16 November 2005 (UTC)

Ok, don´t worry. Ill do it.

? deletion[edit]

Could someone please take a look at article Pádraig. This article seems to be nothing more than a self advertisement by a young person who is not yet sufficiently know to have an article done about him. Is it suitable for Wikipedia or should it be deleted. If kept it may result in a flood of similar pages from millions of people? NB: I live in the area concerned and have never heard of him. 86.2.136.146 13:10, 18 December 2005 (UTC)

Authentic performance[edit]

I see you have deleted the reference to Dolmetsch's book in the "books" section. I thought this book represented a landmark in the movement for authentic performance in the 20th century. I'm curious as to why you deleted it? Bluewave 08:31, 21 December 2005 (UTC)

Tedernst removal of red-links from dab pages[edit]

Examples as requested - here for your consideration; what bothers me as much as the actions are a) the stated like for the "be bold - revert - discuss" paradigm (see the current thread) which I think is kind of childish and b) the edit note "if noteable, write the article!" brandished like some accusation of _how DARE you dirty up this page with your trash_.

Enough of this digging, though; I feel kind of dirty and childish myself doing this detective work. User:Ceyockey 05:03, 30 December 2005 (UTC)

Swung note again[edit]

Hyacinth has redirected everything back to his pet article. On the principle of working for the good of the encyclopedia, and lacking any show of interest at the pump, I've decided to try working with him on this, although I still don't think it's the right place for the main article on swing rhythms and metres. See Talk:Swing rhythm#Here we go again.

You might also like to have a look at the history of the common time entry. Here I really don't know what he's playing at! Andrewa 20:12, 10 January 2006 (UTC)

Yes, agree that there's a point at which we just need to cut our losses and work on things that give better value than edit wars. I just thought you might like a heads-up as you agreed that the main article should be somewhere else other than at swung note.

Hmmm, following your comment I had another look at the common time thing and I can't follow my earlier comment either! All I know is I followed the link from swung note and got to a completely inappropriate place. But as it stands, agree, the current redir is worse. I'll fix it! Andrewa 01:34, 11 January 2006 (UTC)

Aha! Part of the problem is, where do I wikilink common time to? The redirect isn't adequate; There are so many redirects to time signatures that it's impractical to mention them all in the first paragraph or TOC. I've ended up with [[Time signature#Notational variations in simple time|common time]], which is a bit ugly, ends up here and doesn't really have the information. The alternative is [[Musical terminology#C|common time]], which ends up here and has the information but is even uglier. Andrewa 01:48, 11 January 2006 (UTC)

Homeschooling project[edit]

Hello, My name Master Scott Hall (you can call me Scott). I am relatively new contributing to Wikipedia, though I have been a user of it for some time. I am currently soliciting for interest in a Wikiproject that I have proposed on the subject of homeschooling. Before finding Wikipedia, my wife and I were seriously considering, but not quite convinced, to home educate our children.

After discovering the depth, scope, and long-term goals of Wikipedia, as well as the individuals driving it, I am convinced that WP has the potential to revolutionize homeschooling. I am also convinced that home education is the right choice for my family. I have, however, been somewhat discouraged by the oversight of home education in most of the education related projects on WP. There are many potential reasons for this discrepency, but I have resolved to try to do something about it.

Although I personally have very limited experience in building complex Wikiprojects, -templates, -portals, etc., I am confident that the right team can be assembled to tackle these issues. I have notice that you seem to have taken the Homeschooling article "under your wing", at least in terms of NPOV. This kind of focus is crucial to the success of this project. I would like to invite you to join this effort to make Wikipedia the resource for the home education of our children. If you are interested, please visits the temporary project page I have set up. Thank you --Master Scott Hall 17:46, 12 January 2006 (UTC)

Missing license[edit]

I just noticed that your Image:Gregorian chant.gif lacks a license. Can I ask you to add one? Algae 21:03, 31 January 2006 (UTC)

Fixed link in your comment[edit]

Reading through your comments on Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Disambiguation, I found a link (WP:D#Multi-stub pages) which used an anchor which no longer exists (the section was renamed). I took the liberty of fixing it. I decided to tell you this because I think, in general, editing other people's comments is a breach of etiquette, but I thought this useful enough to break the rule (WP:IAR). I hope you don't mind. Hairy Dude 07:54, 7 March 2006 (UTC)

Past AfD nomination of Intercounty Baseball League[edit]

Just noticed this past AfD and I fully support the decision to keep this article. Anyone familiar with Canadian baseball knows that the IBL is a serious men's baseball league with a long history (since 1919) that has produced several members of Major League Baseball, AAA baseball, AA baseball and A baseball, while also featuring former MLB players and former Negro Leagues players of the past. To delete it would have been a travesty. Additionally, several former IBL players have been inducted into the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame & Museum in St. Marys, Ontario. Barry Wells 16:50, 19 September 2006 (UTC)

Further to the above AfD nomination, I'd like to add that the IBL has had numerous former MLB players in the league, including Fergie Jenkins (who's the only player to have been inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame and the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame), Frank Colman, Denny McLain, Dave Rozema, Paul Spoljaric, Rob Butler, Oscar Judd, Tim Burgess, Mike Kilkenny and several outstanding former Negro Leagues players.
Additionally, many many players have been paid to play (albeit under the table), the league has many corporate sponsors, fans, competent, paid umpires, an official media guy, statistician, record books, commissioner and local TV contracts. It is serious baseball, with most parks (all but one, I believe) charging admission. The 1948 London Majors not only won the Intercounty title, but also the Ontario title, the Canadian title and the Can-Am title. Drinking beer while playing is not permitted, as one user frivously suggested. Many former IBL players have also gone on to baseball scholarships at U.S. universities, pro careers with MLB organizations or AAA ball, AA ball or A ball. The London Majors play at Labatt Park, the undisputed (to date) world's oldest baseball grounds in continuous use since 1877 (a heritage site under the Ontario Heritage Act) -- a park which won the prestigious Beam Clay Award as the best natural grass baseball park in North America in 1989-90.

Melisma[edit]

I was wikilinking "dead-end" pages, where we try to further things along, and noticed that the Melisma article refers to "Melisma first appeared in written form...", but didn't see any mention of it in Musical notation. There really isn't a tag for "some of this info might be included in ..." material. I meant to clarify that on the talk page, but I guess I forgot. Sorry, Askari Mark (Talk) 22:51, 16 February 2007 (UTC)

Interval (music) and Diminished seventh[edit]

Yes, Wahoofive. These articles are marred by poor treatment of basic terminology, along with other flaws. With the diminished 7th, I myself am less concerned with how the chord is derived than with the underlying classification of both the interval and the chord. In a nutshell, the problem is this. We know quite well what a diatonic scale is in the context of Greek-based theory of tetrachords and scales; and the term works well and uncontroversially enough when we speak of the music of the Renaissance being founded on the diatonic scale. But in accounting for the period when the harmonic minor (in particular) grew to be important in western music, the term diatonic grows less certain in meaning. According to a usage that evolved in 19C, especially in Britain, the term diatonic came to mean proper to the notes of a major scale, or of some form of a minor scale. This usage can be discerned quite clearly in Percy Scholes' original Oxford Companion to Music, and in the very influential pedagogical writings of the late-19C theorist Ebenezer Prout. In Britain and the other Commonwealth countries, especially in pedagogy as opposed to musicology, this usage is still dominant. And it makes good sense. After all, the system of the Common Practice Period is essentially a system of major scales and melodic and harmonic minor scales, so it's useful to have a term that refers to scales, notes, intervals, embellishments, and harmonic resources that fit most naturally into that basic system: diatonic. And then chromatic is available for reference to the expanded resources arising from adding notes that do not belong to those scales. In fact, it is when we revert to the supposedly more rigorous and supposedly earlier understanding of the term diatonic that confusions, ambiguities, and infelicities emerge. These are now ubiquitous, and can be found throughout the Wikipedia music articles, very many current textbooks, and very many current dictionaries – both general and musical. Even the New Grove is a little muddled. (Setting aside the harmonic minor, consider, as a side complication, how the ascending form of the melodic minor scale is to be classified: some say it is diatonic, some say it is not. And there are varying grounds for the opinions in question.) So you see? The area is riddled with complexities and entrenched allegiances to accustomed practices. The problem may be insoluble for Wikipedia, as a matter of practicality. We'll see. [I'll now post this at Talk:Interval (music) too, I think.] –Noetica 01:38, 18 March 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for your note in reply, Wahoofive. Let's continue the discussion, if there is more to say, at Talk:Interval (music). –Noetica 04:10, 18 March 2007 (UTC)

Glad to see the Dim7 article being expanded. I ran out of steam.--Roivas 16:20, 21 March 2007 (UTC)

BTW, I don't think the "hidden root" theory was originated by Piston (not that you claimed that or anything). I'm pretty sure that Rimsky-Korsakov was the first explain it this way. I'm relying on old memories, here...but I'll be sure to keep an eye out for a good citation so I can edit that into the article.--Roivas 18:57, 21 March 2007 (UTC)

Just so you know the background behind this weird debate.

Two things sparked it:

I removed this piece of nonsense from the article in Interval (Music):

"Diatonic intervals are all those whose notes can both be found in at least one major or harmonic minor scale"

and this from the Diminished Seventh article:

"A diminished seventh interval is one of three musical intervals that span seven diatonic scale degrees."--Roivas 17:14, 23 March 2007 (UTC)

In answer to your note at my page, Wahoofive: yes. See my extended comments at Talk:Diatonic scale. –Noetica 06:19, 24 March 2007 (UTC)

Homeschooling and making friends[edit]

Yes, I know you _can_ make friends outside school, but the problem I see is not of numbers, but of quality. Of the hundreds of acquaitances you do at school, you meet the persons who can be very good friends of yours, and you live side by side with them more than half of your day, nearly every day. Of those friends you keep in touch with few when you grow up and life diverges your paths, but that doesn't mean you didn't need them back then. I will buy mi children toys, even knowing that in a couple of years they won't play with them anymore: They need them now.

In any case I would let my children to decide if they actually can do with more or less friends. And the only way they can decide is not denying them the option.

I can understand that in places where the practice is common, homeschooling parents would make their children meet. It's a way to eliminate the problem of which I'm talking.

And of course, if the education system of the area is so bad, I can understand the practice. Although sending your children to school doesn't impede you of teaching them whatever you feel they should have been thaugth and haven't.

In any case, I do believe, without knowing a word of psychology or sociology, that the fact that younger and younger children try tabacco, for example, is fault of schooling (of the social tension school imposes on children). --euyyn 00:25, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

New article Diatonic and chromatic[edit]

Great work, Wahoofive! I have now done quite a lot within the structure you set up. Let's confine open discussion to Talk:Diatonic and chromatic from now on. I'll put a note to that effect at the other articles' talk pages. This is going to require considerable patience and forbearance, we can be sure! There are a number of other common terms in music that cause problems here at Wikipedia, but by my assessment at least we are attacking the worst of them. – Noetica♬ Talk 10:11, 26 March 2007 (UTC)

Music theory/temp[edit]

You created Music theory/temp a while back. I'm just wondering, are you going to do anything with it? And if it's just you that's going to work on it, wouldn't it be more appropriate in user space, like User:Wahoofive/Music theory instead? - Rainwarrior 03:06, 5 April 2007 (UTC)

My intent was that others might work on it, based on comments on the music theory talk page. If no one is interested, let's kill it. —Wahoofive (talk) 17:31, 5 April 2007 (UTC)
Well, delete it if it's not going to be used, but if multiple users were going to be working on it I'd still suggest moving it to user space anyway. It just doesn't belong in article space. (I do agree that Music theory needs work, and working in some temporary space might be a good idea, though.) - Rainwarrior 04:43, 6 April 2007 (UTC)

Welsh choirs[edit]

You recently reverted [1] an edit of mine removing an irrelevant paragraph from Choir. I had posted my intent to do this on the talk page and received no response. Do you have a reason for reinstating this paragraph? If so, please put it on Talk:Choir. —Wahoofive (talk) 15:20, 10 April 2007 (UTC)

thanks for taking the time to leave a note...it's rarely done, and i admit i should do it more often. that said...i didn't previously see your entry on the discussion page, and your deletion accompanied no comment. either way, i disagree with you assessment, as i found the paragraph a somewhat interesting bit of history. only one choir was given as example, and i don't regard that as self-promoting at all. --emerson7 | Talk 19:10, 10 April 2007 (UTC)

Candy Punk article[edit]

Hey you nominated the Candy Punk article for deletion before, and I was wondering if you can do that again, I'm not sure about the process for renominating. I just haven't been able to find enough music/bands unique enough to warrant it's own stub, and I think it may have been more of a slang terminology for certain pop punk/bubblegum punk music.→LzyGenius 20:16, 11 April 2007 (UTC)

Hi there, when you've got a second, can you pop over to the above page to make an opening statement on the mediation? Obviously, there's no time limit so do it whenever you're ready. Cheers, Ryan Postlethwaite 18:18, 17 August 2007 (UTC)

RfC[edit]

I am starting the page Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Tony1 and would like to go through the RfC process. Would you be willing to endorse or contribute to this? - Rainwarrior 11:09, 26 October 2007 (UTC)

Just a note on why I removed the link to the mediation: Apparently mediation is a "behind closed doors" kind of thing. I didn't know about that policy until I had already gone through and listed quotes from the mediation, etc. on the RfC and was told by two different mediators not to do so. I'm not sure I agree with that policy, but I'd prefer not to have the mediation discussion deleted as a result, since despite the problems had there is actually some useful information in there. - Rainwarrior 17:12, 26 October 2007 (UTC)
Oh, you already got it. - Rainwarrior 17:15, 26 October 2007 (UTC)

I have deleted the Request for Comment you endorsed concerning Tony1 (talk · contribs) because more than 48 hours had passed without proper certification. To remain listed, a RFC must demonstrate public evidence of attempts to resolve a dispute, and should also demonstrate that the dispute is an on-going concern. If there are existing matters between yourself and Tony1 I hope that you can resolve them directly. Best, Mackensen (talk) 10:51, 31 October 2007 (UTC)

Good to see some progress[edit]

This is a message to Wahoofive, Rainwarrior, Mscuthbert, and Tony. I am pleased to see that there has been some progress on this six-four matter. I long ago withdrew from the discussion when it became clear that nothing useful was coming of it. When the page Inversion (music) is unlocked and things are back to normal, I look forward to contributing something to the discussion once more. I suppose others may want to come in then also. I'll not join the discussion till the disputes are all behind, and things are functioning normally. Meanwhile, I recommend this: have a look at Chopin's exquisitely beautiful Prelude in C# minor, Op. 45. (You can find it online [blacklisted link removed], and no doubt other places as well.) The point to consider is this: what analysis are we to give the extended "six-four" in the twelfth- and eleventh-last (and tenth-last?) bars? If the underlying harmony in these bars is V, parse these notes: the B and the A, the two Fxs, the B#, and the D#. And then parse these notes on the assumption that the underlying harmony in those bars is I. Thank you!

RfC: Original research and reliable sources[edit]

Hello. You recently contributed to a discussion about original research and sourcing at the List of musical works in unusual time signatures.

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Charp white notation.gif)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Charp white notation.gif. 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) 12:08, 11 March 2008 (UTC)

Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Alternative education[edit]

Clarifiers in disambiguation pages[edit]

Hello, Wahoofive. After doing some research, I have found out that you were one of the participants in the discussion here about whether clarifiers (or Parenthetical Disambiguation Terms, PDTs, as I now call them—I didn't really know the simple term) should be italicised. The discussion has resulted in the current guideline on disambiguation page links, but there is a discussion taking place here about whether names of works, like Star Wars and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which are normally italicised, should also be italicised within the clarifiers. Your input would certainly be appreciated. Waltham, The Duke of 15:52, 28 March 2008 (UTC)

I'm afraid I have nothing to add to that discussion. —Wahoofive (talk) 18:44, 29 March 2008 (UTC)
Do you have no opinion, then? It matters not if you have no further arguments to add; we should be able to tell what the support for the existing ones is. Right? Waltham, The Duke of 19:27, 29 March 2008 (UTC)

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion, guidelines for use at WP:MINOR). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and all users will still be able to manually mark their edits as being minor in the usual way.

For well-established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 20:57, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

Unspecified source for File:Gregorian chant.gif[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Gregorian chant.gif. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, then you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, then their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Fair use, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged files may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 20:55, 23 December 2011 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Do you want to opt out of receiving this notice?Angr (talk) 20:55, 23 December 2011 (UTC)

Your contributed article, Key (music)/Wahoofive[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

Hello, I notice that you recently created a new page, Key (music)/Wahoofive. First, thank you for your contribution; Wikipedia relies solely on the efforts of volunteers such as you. Unfortunately, the page you created covers a topic on which we already have a page - Key (music). Because of the duplication, your article has been tagged for speedy deletion. Please note that this is not a comment on you personally and we hope you will continue helping to improve Wikipedia. If the topic of the article you created is one that interests you, then perhaps you would like to help out at Key (music) - you might like to discuss new information at the article's talk page.

If you think that the article you created should remain separate, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Additionally if you would like to have someone review articles you create before they go live so they are not nominated for deletion shortly after you post them, allow me to suggest the article creation process and using our search feature to find related information we already have in the encyclopedia. Try not to be discouraged. Wikipedia looks forward to your future contributions. Pstanton (talk) 23:04, 25 April 2012 (UTC)

Specific Nonchord tones[edit]

Hello Wahoofive. I noticed that you participated in the discussion of this article, and I think that many of the nonchord tones presented in the article do in fact warrant their own pages. According to the Wikipedia Notability Policy, for topics to be 'notable', they must have significant coverage, reliable information, and a variety of sources. While Wikipedia is not is not indiscriminate, I think there might be good reasons to have separate articles:

  • Significant coverage - Suspensions are delineated in nearly every dictionary, encyclopedia, and theory book. Grove's dictionary of Music and Musicians, for example, dedicates several pages to the important concept. Suspensions are also discussed in nearly all first year music theory classes, making it rudimentary information. While I can understand why the 'suspension (music)' page was redirected, I do not think it was wholly beneficial.
  • Reliable Information - There is a variety of reliable information about suspensions. To name a few: Grove's Dictionary of Music and Musicians, the Harvard Dictionary of Music, Edward Aldwell's Harmony and Voice Leading, and Tonal Harmony, by Kostka and Payne.

Verifiable facts and content supported by multiple independent sources might justify reconsideration of this topic. I do hope that we can come to a satisfactory resolution. It is OK if you respond on this talk page as it condenses the discussion into one area, and because I have your talk page on my watchlist. Thanks, Paul.m.kirschner (talk) 21:37, 3 August 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for April 12[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Music theory, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Seventh (music) (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 09:52, 12 April 2013 (UTC)

A few of your images nominated for deletion; care to help?[edit]

File:Alto clef.gif listed for deletion[edit]

A file that you uploaded or altered, File:Alto clef.gif, has been listed at Wikipedia:Files for deletion. Please see the discussion to see why this is (you may have to search for the title of the image to find its entry), if you are interested in it not being deleted. Thank you. Fuebar (talk) 22:12, 19 April 2013 (UTC)

I've marked two other images you uploaded - File:Multimeasure rest2.gif and File:Double accidentals.gif - for deletion as well. They've all been made obsolete by higher-quality images and are no longer being used. The three are grouped together following the generated templage message's link to the discussion if you wish to contest this decision. However, your contributions and you being the uploader of your own images make it obvious that you know much more on this topic than I do, a layman. If possible, it would be appreciated if you could go through your old images and mark for deletion - or at least list here so that I or someone else can do so - the images that you believe are also clearly made obsolete by newer, higher-quality ones. Thanks. Fuebar (talk) 22:12, 19 April 2013 (UTC)

No problem, obviously it's just a replacement of a .gif image with an equivalent .svg image in each case. —Wahoofive (talk) 01:51, 20 April 2013 (UTC)

A file that you uploaded or altered, File:Common_time_signatures.png, has been listed at Wikipedia:Files for deletion.
