Talk:Drop Dead Festival

This article reads a lot like an advertisement and not so much like an encyclopedic entry. That problem probably ought to be remedied by someone if they'd like to keep this article. I'm considering nominating it for deletion, but I don't necessarily think the Drop Dead Festival is non-notable, so I wouldn't really be opposed to an article that wasn't a promo. I will probably start making some deletions within the article, however, if isn't cleaned up soon to conform more closely to Wikipedia standards. --Jakob Huneycutt 17:49, 21 February 2006 (UTC)

I tried to help out a little by giving the article more of an encyclopedic format, but it's far from perfect. I'd work on it some more, but i'm in a time crunch at the moment. I hope my edits will at least save it from the deletion bin because i to believe it's a notable article.--Adrift* 22:28, 21 February 2006 (UTC)

I don't think those last two sections were salvagable, so I went ahead and deleted them (one was actually called "Accolades for Drop Dead" and was nothing more than positive media quotes). The first two sections at least have legitimate content. --Jakob Huneycutt 12:20, 22 February 2006 (UTC)

yeah i added the accolades headline cause i didn't know what to do with the quote. the deletion of the last two sections is understandable.--Adrift* 13:50, 22 February 2006 (UTC)

I understand your concerns of how it reads. I know the company in which this event comes from and probably will check it out for the first time this September. Maybe then I can write about it more objectionably. I took the liberty to try to form it more into a proper article and section it out. I think I also have a copy of the magazine, which is nationally published, giving Drop Dead more credibility, IMHO, to be notable. So hopefully my fixes tonight improved it some. I added it to my watchlist to track and work.--vi 05:34, 12 August 2006 (UTC)

if this festival is the biggest Deathrock festival and one of the largest horror music events in the world as the article (and the official website) says it is, maybe some numbers (regarding its attendees, bands and fans) and some references for those numbers wouldn't be such a problem to integrate in the article, would it? but since there are no references for now (and i'm guessing it's gonna stay like this for a long time), i'm going to edit the "biggest deathrock festival" that reads more like a personal point of view/original research (not to say "add") than a wiki article.IleanaCosanziana 20:09, 26 June 2007 (UTC)

do you know of a bigger deathrock or horror music related festival? It is most certainly the largest. nothing even comes close with number of bands booked here . —Preceding unsigned comment added by Nydecay (talkcontribs) 10:50, 3 January 2008 (UTC)
