Criticism of abingdon boys school[edit]

I do not have a problem with criticism about the band included in this article, but statements like these:

Abingdon Boys School has been heavily criticized by many Rock fans in Japan due to T.M. Revolution being a J-Pop star rather than someone who has more experience in the genre.

should at least include a citation. Just about anyone could come up with a claim like that, and pass it off as a fact. ~Michelle 04:18, 13 January 2007 (UTC)

tbh I go to this school and we're upset that someone would create a band when THEY DONT EVEN GO TO THE SCHOOL! Also sensing some legal issues.

I understand your distress. When I first saw the page's title I assumed it would be about the school. However, someone from your IP expressed their unhappiness by vandalising the page, and then vandalising my user talk page when I reverted the vandalism. I don't think such public misbehaviour reflects well on the school, do you? As for the legal issues, I don't think they should be your concern. Perhaps you could bring the matter to the attention of the school authorities and have them look into it, though I'd be surprised if they could do much. As for Wikipedia, may I suggest that you put together a decent page about the school itself and then put a link to it on the band's page? Philip Trueman 18:32, 31 January 2007 (UTC)

For the record, the school's page is at Abingdon School, and I've added a disambiguating hatnote to this article. Since there appears to be a controversy about the band's use of the school's name, I've added some citations to the note about the school at Abingdon School#Trivia — but the sources I was able to find don't quite meet the requirements of WP:ATT. If any fans of the band can provide better sources for the fact that they're named after the school — perhaps an interview in print, or a Japanese page that I can't read — please add them to Abingdon School. Thanks. —Josiah Rowe (talkcontribs) 18:00, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

"On July 7, 2007 a. b. s. performed at the Live Earth Concert held in Tokyo. This was the last show they performed publically at non-gay venues."

  • this needs to be backed up, especially when purely speculative, as it is only 7/7/07 now. DELETED the second sentence for those reasons. mercator79 0940 07/07/07 UTC

What needs to be reworded[edit]

Feel free to remove this comment after it's been changed.. They already performed Howling, and it's been used for 4 weeks now already in Darker Than Black. I don't know when exactly, so I won't edit it up. --MooNFisH 17:11, 10 May 2007 (UTC)

Citations on album sales[edit]

There seems to be a bit of an issue: the article doesn't exactly cite where the statistics for the actual # of sales per unit come from. It seems very faulty to me that Blade Chord would have risen #2 on the top of the charts on the Oricon with only 25,000 sales. It needs some revision with updated numbers and a clear reference so that people can see where the numbers are coming from.

Requested move[edit]

Hatto, the band is named "abingdon boys school" and there is nothing in WP:MOS-JP or WP:NC that says that the title should be changed to "Abingdon Boys School."—Ryūlóng (竜龙) 02:42, 3 March 2008 (UTC)

No. ~Ambrosia- talk 03:08, 3 March 2008 (UTC)

  • Move - WP:MOSCAPS is clear about this: proper nouns should have their first letters capitalized. --DAJF (talk) 03:23, 3 March 2008 (UTC)

I've moved it. I see the issue, now.—Ryūlóng (竜龙) 03:28, 3 March 2008 (UTC)

Merging singles[edit]

From my reading of WP:MUSIC#Songs, the articles on singles should probably be merged into one page, either here or a discography article. Not because they're non-notable, but because they're permanent stubs. Comments? --erachima talk 06:16, 28 April 2008 (UTC)

I'm doing a bit of a walk-by, but I think that reasoning's fair. If no one else comments, go ahead. Itzjustdrama? 01:11, 14 September 2008 (UTC)
