Music scores as external links[edit]

(copied from my talk page [1] --Ronz (talk) 00:35, 27 April 2017 (UTC))

Hi Ronz — thanks for your message. I encountered that list of music scores where James Joyce appears as librettist and thought that would be a good external link / reference for his article in Wikipedia. I wasn't aware that so many music scores were available with his lyrics, and considered that to be an interesting contribution. Could you expand on your views about it, please? Thanks again. —Avorio (talk) 17:04, 26 April 2017 (UTC)

It would help if you made some acknowledgement of what I believe is a conflict of interest on your part. I'm going to assume that you'll clearly disclose.
Am I correct to assume these are all James_Joyce#Joyce_and_music#4 "Music to Joyce's words"? We generally don't attempt to link an author's works, let alone works set to music with the scores. Look over WP:EL to get a feel for the general guidelines for external links. Please note WP:EL#ADV and WP:CURATOR. --Ronz (talk) 00:35, 27 April 2017 (UTC)

What happened to the Infobox?[edit]

Hi all, I added an infobox and other updates for James Joyce to make it better, however most of my updates were deleted. The editors who dislike infobox are controlling this article. So messed it... SWP13 (talk) 01:52, 28 May 2017 (UTC)

Hello SWP. Take a look at Archive 2, which has lengthy discussions about infoboxes. The consensus has been that one is not needed. I took a look at your other changes and it looks like most of them are still in the article. Best wishes, Kablammo (talk) 01:55, 28 May 2017 (UTC)

Birth name[edit]

I have found his civil birth certificate that he was born James Augusta Joyce. (talk) 11:22, 2 June 2017 (UTC)

James Joyce birth and baptismal certificate.jpg
That is a record of his birth, but is not the certificate. The certificate itself is to the right. Please see footnote 1 in the article, and this archived discussion on the talk page. Regards, Kablammo (talk) 13:51, 2 June 2017 (UTC)

Irish Politics?[edit]

Although he lived abroad much of the time, Joyce is thought of as a very Irish author, and the period of his life was a very turbulent and traumatic one for Ireland. Did Joyce have any involvement with or support one side or the other in the Irish Civil War? Have any opinion about Irish neutrality in WWII? Any political leanings at all? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:24, 18 June 2017 (UTC)

Very good questions. I will check Ellmann and a couple of other bios I have of Joyce. Kablammo (talk) 17:08, 22 June 2017 (UTC)
