Semi-protected edit request on 18 May 2017[edit]

I think picture of Kanye West in this article should be changed to something newer as current one is from 2009 (8 years old).

This image from 2016 Video Music Awards event seems fitting.

Justin Vernon should be an associated act. Kanye West and Bon Iver/Justin Vernon have collaborated on a number of projects. Considerably more than some of the other artists listed in associated acts.

True, according to Justin_Vernon#Other_collaborations, they've worked together 9 times over 3 albums. I'll add Justin Vernon accordingly. Cjhard (talk) 02:28, 21 July 2017 (UTC)

Recent deletions[edit]

Hillbillyholiday made these recent deletions. I felt that he (or she) should discuss them first, but Hillbillyholiday went ahead and reverted again anyway. I'm noting this here in case anyone contests the deletions. I've noted for sometime that this article has had excessive material added to it, and I've objected to some of the detail Gentlecollapse6 has put into the article. So I'm not too opposed to the recent cuts. Flyer22 Reborn (talk) 04:17, 19 August 2017 (UTC)

Yeah, me neither. That's some nice trimming. Cjhard (talk) 04:22, 19 August 2017 (UTC)
You're "not too opposed to the recent cuts" but you reverted anyway? Ho hum.
While we're here, what else needs attention? What about the sourcing for the Mental health section? --Hillbillyholiday (talk) 14:13, 19 August 2017 (UTC)
That section doesn't require WP:MEDRS-compliant sources. And from what I see, the sourcing for that section is good.
As for this revert of Gentlecollapse6's revert, two editors agreeing with your cuts doesn't mean that you should automatically revert again. But it does mean that Gentlecollapse6 should justify here on the talk page what he feels should remain before reverting again. Flyer22 Reborn (talk) 15:08, 19 August 2017 (UTC)
Is it ok to have a section entitled "Mental health" which uses sources such as msn.com, usmagazine.com, and consequenceofsound.net to provide facts about Kanye's "depression", "paranoia", hospitalization, and diagnoses? --Hillbillyholiday (talk) 16:08, 19 August 2017 (UTC)
As somewhat indicated by this small edit I made back in 2016, I was concerned about that section. I also almost removed it. But I haven't been concerned about it in sometime; we can ask about it at the WP:BLP noticeboard. I would remove the consequenceofsound.net source, but the other sources are fine. Flyer22 Reborn (talk) 16:36, 19 August 2017 (UTC)
I missed your earlier statement of "You're 'not too opposed to the recent cuts' but you reverted anyway?" I reverted per reasons stated on your talk page. Drastic cuts like this should often be discussed first, precisely because they are big and some content should perhaps be retained and because some editors might disagree with the cuts. Being WP:Bold is one thing. But when you are reverted on such big cuts, you should then discuss the matter on the talk page instead of automatically reverting.

Sundayclose, which of Hillbillyholiday's changes do you oppose? Even if Hillbillyholiday doesn't want to get consensus their edits, I think the edits are an overall improvement to the article, so I'd like to come to some sort of consensus regarding them. Cjhard (talk) 02:06, 20 August 2017 (UTC)
