Little Mix discography[edit]

I have been keeping an eye on Little Mix discography, and the main problem with it is the editor Little Mix Croatia insists on adding supposed worldwide sales figures to singles and albums in the article. These figures, while they may be correct, are completely unverifiable: they are sourced from the fan blog, which in turn sources them from the forums of Digital Spy (credited on the article as "DS Blog"). This means it is user-generated content and the figures are unofficial, so they should not be used on Wikipedia. However, despite removing them more than once, Little Mix Croatia simply adds them again – I have left a couple of polite messages on his/her talk page asking him/her to stop, but I have not received any acknowledgement or reply, and judging by this edit he/she does not care for following Wikipedia procedures.

I don't like taking this to WP:ANI but as I have had no response on the user's talk page, is there anything else I can try before taking the next step? Or should I just forget it? Even if the link to is kept, the fact is that the link is to a regularly updating news page where the oldest messages fall off the bottom of the page, so in a short space of time even this link will be out of date and a dead link.

@Richard3120: I just removed it all and kept the page on my watchlist. Let's see the user try now. That link is a gross unreliable fan-site. —Indian:BIO · [ ChitChat ] 14:23, 24 July 2014 (UTC)
I agree, it's completely unreliable, but having already reverted twice I'm wary of falling foul of WP:3RR and I really have no desire to get into an argument when there are other articles that I am working on, on which I can use my time on more profitably. Thanks for taking this up, IndianBio. Richard3120 (talk) 14:31, 24 July 2014 (UTC)
@Richard3120:, the spam user Little Mix Croatia has been indefinitely blocked by an admin for spamming. I think that should take care of the article. Keep an eye out for his IP. —Indian:BIO · [ ChitChat ] 13:26, 25 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, will do. I think it's safe to say he/she was pretty much a one-issue editor, and judging by this message, felt they deserved to "own" the sole rights to edit Little Mix articles. Richard3120 (talk) 13:34, 25 July 2014 (UTC)


Katy Perry is currently a featured article candidate. Feel free to leave input. SNUGGUMS (talk · contribs) 02:52, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

Nothing but the Beat[edit]

The correct format for this album title really should be sorted out once and for all – it was suggested on the talk page as far back as 2011 that it should be formatted as Nothing But the Beat, which seems correct to me, and for the reasons suggested by the editor. Either way, it needs to be standardised: the article title uses "but" in lower case letters, while the article text uses upper case for both "But" and "The" (definitely wrong). I just wanted to run it by other editors to check I have interpreted the MOS correctly in this case, then I'll put it forward for a move request. Richard3120 (talk) 14:30, 30 July 2014 (UTC)
