Semi-protected edit request on 4 July 2017[edit]

Please change discography for Axl Rose To mention the EP released by Guns N' Roses on the Uzi Suicide label in 1986; This is omitted in the current page form. The EP has a wiki page to link to in your entry. Randyorobertsii (talk) 22:04, 4 July 2017 (UTC)

Not done for now: Artist articles for members of a band generally only list significant releases, not every single, EP, live album, etc., and then link to the band's discography article. This article follows that, and the link to the Guns N' Roses discography article leads to an EP section that includes this release. The information is already available, and there isn't any reason offered why this one EP is more significant than any other EP or single release. Eggishorn (talk) (contrib) 17:53, 5 July 2017 (UTC)

Hey EggisHorn,
I submitted a request to add the Ep Live like a suicide to Axl Roses page. You said the album was not important enough as to require a mention. However starting here on Wikipedia I edit things I know for sure;so i do not give false info. The EP Live like a suicide was the GNR demo tape that got them signed on Geffen records. The band then took their advance from the label and published the demo themselves with a dubbing of live crowd, hence the live in the title. The EP was so successful and rare the EP started sell for over 300 dollars in 1987 money. The band then realizing how well the public received the EP release the Live like a suicide records and 4 new acoustic tracks as the second major Record release GNR Lies following Appetite for destruction. So i feel the success of the EP and importance of the EP in the history of the band warrants the edit I suggested the edit so people can know and understand the band's history a little better.

@Randyorobertsii:, From your description, it sounds like the EP is a notable one and we do actually have an article about it: Live ?!*@ Like a Suicide. The problem with both your original edit request and your follow-up is that, as far as I can tell, you are speaking form your personal knowledge. You say you "do not give false info," which is certainly a laudable goal in any encyclopedia. Unfortunately, your good intentions are not good enough for the projects standards on what information is included or not. You can find a better explanation of what I'm saying at this essay titled Verifiability, not Truth. The short version is that we need a reliable source that any other reader or editor can use to verify the information you want included. At this time, I don't see anything that would qualify for inclusion here. Thanks for understanding. Eggishorn (talk) (contrib) 16:19, 31 July 2017 (UTC)
