Many portions of this article appear to be correspond exactly to text in a copyrighted blog post at This appears to be a copyright violation. I was not able to find any reference to this issue being addressed previously in talk pages or history. Maralia 04:12, 15 July 2007 (UTC)

Actually this article seems to be a collage of statements taken from multiple blogs - most of them linked to by now. I've replaced the copyvio tag with a cleanup tag - this is no way to write a Wikipedia article. --Alvestrand 18:25, 4 August 2007 (UTC)
This article has been edited some 20 times since I tagged it for copyvio, so it no longer appears to be lifted directly from the site I mentioned previously. I agree with the new tags; this needs a complete rewrite for npov and grammar reasons, and also needs citations from creditable sources. An artist that has been producing music for over 10 years as part of a platinum selling group must have been profiled by music industry sources such as MTV and magazines as well as mainstream newspapers; resorting to fansites and bulletin boards certainly violates Wikipedia:Biographies of living persons#Sources.

I deleted everything in the article that seemed to me to need verification in order to be included. After staring at it for a while, that was the whole article except for the lead-in paragraph. The material presented, if untrue, would be more than enough for a libel suit for defamation; WP:BLP says, more or less, "delete that". --Alvestrand 05:15, 5 November 2007 (UTC)

Problems in finding sources[edit]

I've gone through 5 pages of Google search results on this name, and 2/3 of them are news reports (from what I think is non-WP:RS sites) about his recent arrest, and most of the rest are fansites or video download sites. Need help to find something usable here to rescue it from WP:BLP deletion - this link is the closest I've come, and I don't like it much. --Alvestrand (talk) 10:29, 20 February 2011 (UTC)

Orphaned references in DeVante Swing[edit]

I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of DeVante Swing's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

Reference named "billboard":

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT 15:32, 4 August 2015 (UTC)
