CAN I REFER PEOPLE TO WP:ALBUMS, rules clearly state that to call a track or single confirmed you MUST have a varifiable source.

Someone keeps adding "lazy" and "dont need u" without references.

no reference = not recorded track. simple. (Lil-unique1 (talk) 17:50, 13 March 2009 (UTC))


There are an awful lot of quoted snippets in the composition section. These are not handled in accordance with policy. While they are marked as quotes, there's no indication of who said what, and there's no indication of why these quotes are here. We can't just use the words because we want them; quotes must be used transformatively to keep them within fair use. The essay Wikipedia:Quotations may give some more guidance on how to use quotes in the project. If citations are not provided after each quote to indicate where it comes from, I'm afraid these are going to have to be removed until this information is located and added. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 00:07, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

Sorry, didn't realise, revisions have been conducted now. I wanted the info to be as heavily-referenced as possible, to avoid being accused of making-up material. Hope the revisions are acceptable JonathanLGardner (talk) 12:30, 3 February 2011 (UTC)
Thank you. That's much better. :) In addition to inline citations, though, we need intext attribution. (see Wikipedia:INTEXT#In-text attribution). For an example of where intext attribution is provided, in the critical reception section, it says:

Samantha Greaves of described the album as "very diverse", listing "Take Away Love" as "One of the gems on Lady Love" and praised "LeToya's ability to think out the box and to bring to R&B music something different than the vast majority".[1]

This is both cited inline and attributed inline, so we know whose opinion it is we're reading. This also helps keep the content consistent with non-free content policy and guideline, because when we name a source for opinions like "Lady Love is more of a mid-tempo R&B album than a hip-hop hybrid" in the text, we make it clear that we are attributing a point of view or idea, not just adopting it. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 12:43, 3 February 2011 (UTC)
Ahhh, I see, pretty much what I did for the "critical reception" section. I get it. Will do that in the next few days or so :) Thanks JonathanLGardner (talk) 01:46, 4 February 2011 (UTC)
