Semi-protected edit request on 2 January 2016[edit]

I wanted to edit the 'years active' part. She had no career in 2008. It started in early 2009 when she signed to Polydor. When Ellie's debut single 'Under the Sheets' was being recorded. Should the 'years active' section actually display '2009-present' instead of 2008. Emmaan01 (talk) 12:20, 2 January 2016 (UTC)

There are recordings of her online dating back to 2007/2008. (talk) 22:06, 9 March 2016 (UTC)

I think that Emmaan01 is right I've remark it too Hibapiratistaa (talk) 19:20, 26 November 2016 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 9 April 2016[edit]

At the end of the 2015-present section of the career header, mention the fact that on 31st March 2016, she announced that she has recorded another song with Calvin Harris. It will feature an unknown male artist as well.[1] (talk) 17:36, 9 April 2016 (UTC)

Lead image change[edit]

The lead image of her at the Divergent premiere is dated and also somewhat low quality. Also, please show me the rule which states that close-ups are preferred to full-body pictures. Benmite (talk) 01:06, 2 November 2016 (UTC)

Just because you deem an image "dated" does not mean it should be changed; there is absolutely nothing wrong with the current leading image, therefore, it does not need to be changed, especially to one that is less-clear than the image currently in-use. livelikemusic talk! 01:14, 2 November 2016 (UTC)
A picture taken around the same time as the last time the lead image was updated.
@livelikemusic I fail to see how the image that I used is somehow "less clear" than the one used previously. It shows her face, it shows that she is human, and it also shows her doing something that she wasn't before, which is singing. Therefore, I would almost go as far as to say the image that I added was even more clear. However, if you would rather the article remain more relevant to the Triassic Period, then that is fine by me. Benmite (talk) 01:28, 2 November 2016 (UTC)
@livelikemusic Who am I waiting for consensus from? Unless you are writing a novel, it is clear you have no intention of reaching a consensus with me any time soon. What is your issue with the image? I understand that it is not necessarily an improvement in your eyes. I already explained why I consider it an improvement. Therefore, I am still waiting on a clear explanation as to your removal of the image other than "the other one was fine". Benmite (talk) 01:47, 2 November 2016 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── You don't have to continue linking to my username, Benmite. Your attitude is not assuming good faith and is borderline battlefield-like behaviour and a hint of ownership to your own uploaded image. As explained to you before, discussion was opened and a consensus must be reached between editors, and I will not sit here and engagement in a back-and-forth argument where I do not believe good faith is being assumed, and adhered to towards Wikipedia's policies. As for clearer issues; the image is place now is a clear-cut image of Goulding's face, while the image that you want in place, is darker and is not as clear of quality as the image in place. It is blurry, likely due to its darker nature. livelikemusic talk! 01:53, 2 November 2016 (UTC)

Battlefield-like behaviour? That's a bold statement. I guess you're not wrong, though. But you have to admit, the Triassic Period joke was sort of funny. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Benmite (talkcontribs) 02:03, 2 November 2016 (UTC)
I'll help. The portrait picture of the face gives a much better sense of who she is, and whatever the picture's age, she still looks very much like that. The standing, full-body shot verges on an upskirt, and it's actually hard to see her face. The focus is on her body. If she were a body-oriented performance artist, that might be appropriate. In this case, the face portrait is much better.
Finally, I can't keep track of all the back-and-forth above, but whoever is talking about dinosaurs and spending time linking to dino pix is way out of line and is violating the expectations of civility in wikipedia land. GetSomeUtah (talk) 09:41, 2 November 2016 (UTC)

This photo have no relation with ellie Goulding so what do you mean ? Hibapiratistaa (talk) 19:17, 26 November 2016 (UTC)

Political comments[edit]

Hi, I removed the political comments as they aren't really relevant to the article and her personal life.

Plus generally it is usually with some people in the public eye to try and either state a view or make something up for publicity.


Pam-javelin (talk) 12:54, 13 December 2016 (UTC)

Even if she did "make something up for publicity", it is still encyclopedic information being expressed in the political views section. It is not any editor's opinion. It is not defamatory. Those would be valid reasons to remove said content (if uncited). She has made politics a part of her personal life by expressing her political interests, as the references show. --bojo1498 talk 16:51, 13 December 2016 (UTC)
Agreed. The political comments should remain in. They are a core facet of her being and personality. They are part of what make her Ellie Goulding. We don't pick and choose what goes into her bio -- she does by her words and behaviors. GetSomeUtah (talk) 10:21, 14 December 2016 (UTC)

Fair enough!
