Wrong credits for the song "I Want to Fuck You to Death" by the band Huntress on the album Starbound Beast[edit]


In the booklet of the album the lyrics are credited to Lemmy Kilmister but on the page of the album (Starbound Beast) all songs are to the band (except for the last one which is a cover). Also, during their performance of August 11th in Montréal, Québec, Canada, the signer, Jill Janus, stated that she asked her friend Lemmy Kilmister to write them a song and "I Want to Fuck You to Death" is the result.

FA nominee[edit]

Greetings to all. Just to inform you that I've recently nominated Megadeth for featured article. If I'm correct, this is the project's first FA nomination in five years (the last one was Meshuggah), so if interested, feel free to leave comments here. Hope the candidature will be successful. Cheers!--Вик Ретлхед (talk) 20:02, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

Tim Lambesis[edit]

If there is anyone able and willing to improve this article, it would benefit the project. It's currently a borderline BLP violation as the article is almost entirely about his criminal acts and subsequent trial and conviction. The article has a custodian, but no substantial information about Lambesis' career has ever been included in the article, which is mind-boggling considering all of his notability rests in it. And said custodian seems to have no interest in the article beyond vandalism patrol. The subject is outside of my realm of knowledge (and interest) and my time quite limited currently.

Request for comments on bot approval discussion[edit]

Your comments are requested at Wikipedia:Bots/Requests for approval/BattyBot 29, which is intended to fix the |genre= parameter of music-related infoboxes, fix incorrect wikilinks such as [[country]] to [[country music|country]] or [[metal]] to [[heavy metal music|metal]]. Thanks! GoingBatty (talk) 19:21, 10 May 2014 (UTC)

Removing inactive members from the list[edit]

Hello everyone. I want to make a proposal to remove the members who haven't been active at all in the past 3 years or more. This is to check how much active members we currently have. While going through the list (as I wanted to find a partner for collaboration on Anthrax), I've noticed that quite a few of the ones listed barely have edited Wikipedia, and haven't even touched an article related to heavy metal music. So what do the others think? If you have a better suggestion, please post it.--Вик Ретлхед (talk) 12:24, 22 May 2014 (UTC)


There's been an IP ( making changes to the Mudvayne related pages for a while now, and so far nobody with any experience has stepped in. I request someone to take take of this. The user is trying to claim that Mudvayne should only be listed as progressive metal and nothing else, despite there being reliable sources saying otherwise. He keeps using the same three sources for every Mudvayne related page, no matter how relevant it may be (and he doesn't even bother to fix his two broken links). Despite taking it to talk and telling him to hold up from making any changes until the argument can be settled, he's not interested in anything but his own view. It should be noted that the user has been banned from TVTropes twice for the same sort of edit-warring. I've taken it to the admin noticeboard, but it's been nothing but a waste of time.

Controversial IP edits (genre warring)[edit]

There's been an IP ( deleting genres from infoboxes without explanation. I am not certain whether any of these are legitimate. --Omnipaedista (talk) 12:06, 30 May 2014 (UTC)

Omnipaedista, you can leave the user a warning note ("uw-genre1") at his talk page if you think his edits are counterproductive.--Вик Ретлхед (talk) 20:50, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

Leaflet For Wikiproject Metal At Wikimania 2014[edit]

Hi all,

My name is Adi Khajuria and I am helping out with Wikimania 2014 in London.

One of our initiatives is to create leaflets to increase the discoverability of various wikimedia projects, and showcase the breadth of activity within wikimedia. Any kind of project can have a physical paper leaflet designed - for free - as a tool to help recruit new contributors. These leaflets will be printed at Wikimania 2014, and the designs can be re-used in the future at other events and locations.

This is particularly aimed at highlighting less discoverable but successful projects, e.g:

• Active Wikiprojects: Wikiproject Medicine, WikiProject Video Games, Wikiproject Film

• Tech projects/Tools, which may be looking for either users or developers.

• Less known major projects: Wikinews, Wikidata, Wikivoyage, etc.

• Wiki Loves Parliaments, Wiki Loves Monuments, Wiki Loves ____

• Wikimedia thematic organisations, Wikiwomen’s Collaborative, The Signpost
