Article title "presence"[edit]

What about the concept of presence as an emergent technology (?): where one is, whether or not one is available, how one can be contacted, how one would prefer to be contacted. Where could an article on this topic be placed, how should it be named? Thanks! —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 21:10, 22 June 2005

  • This article could be:
    • A) moved to : Presence (album)
    • B) Your new article could be called : Presence (technology)
Also, check Wiktionary:presence

WikiDon 00:42, 26 August 2005 (UTC)

Even if I'm a PSYCer not a Jabberist I think presence technology should be the default page for presence whereas this one needs a rename. Anyone else in support of this plan? --lynX 17:54, 5 December 2006 (UTC)

I also deem the presence technology article more important than the album article. A disambiguation page might also be a solution? --JRaue 17:54, 8 February 2007 (UTC)

I think the disambiguation page is the way to go, and have filed a move request. Dancter (talk) 19:28, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

*Oppose: The Led Zeppelin album is far more notable than some obscure computer software most people haven't heard. MegX (talk) 01:06, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

  • Oppose - the status quo is fine. No need to change. Most people on the street would have heard more about the Led Zeppelin album than anything else. HelenWatt (talk) 08:32, 3 March 2009 (UTC)
  • The word "presence" has many meanings and uses, and a routine pop music album is not a dominant meaning after it has been pushed to the backs of people's minds by the endless stream of many other pop music songs and albums coming after it. Let the plain name Presence be the disambig page. Anthony Appleyard (talk) 10:27, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

*Oppose, nothing wrong with the current set-up. When I think of Presence I think of the Led Zeppelin album. Also some of the entries on the Presence (disambiguation) page are incorrect. The comic entries should be named "The Presence" (as it is written in the comic books) not "Presence", and I note there are two entries for both on The Presence. EastHills (talk) 23:15, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

  • Oppose, until another entry for the term gains moderate amounts of traction.LedRush (talk) 20:25, 4 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Oppose The album article has over 26,000 views in the last month[1] as compared to at most 3,000 for the other topics:[2][3][4][5][6], which supports the album as primary topic. dissolvetalk 19:36, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Among the existing articles that are likely to be linked to or searched for under the precise title "Presence", the album appears to be tops by a fair margin. olderwiser 02:54, 6 March 2009 (UTC)

Possible Confusion with album of the same name[edit]

Is it possible that this album may get confused with: (talk) 12:55, 1 May 2014 (UTC)

Probably not. In fact, definitely not. Halmyre (talk) 16:39, 1 May 2014 (UTC)

Secret Message On The Cover?[edit]

On The Cover Of Presence In The Water It Looks Like It Spells "CAR" In Capel Letters. Noone Know What It Is In The Water.Where They To Advertise For Selling A Car. Moved this from the article to the discussion page.The Illusional Ministry 23:27, 12 October 2007 (UTC)

Im not seeing what your seeing..Brando26000 (talk) 01:58, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

"Nobody's Fault But Mine"[edit]

Althought the album is mediocre, "Nobody's Fault But Mine" is not a bad song.

It is also on the Page & Plant No Quarter: Jimmy Page and Robert Plant Unledded album.

Does anyone know if there is a Led Zeppelin live version out there?

Yes, on Zeppelins DVD release.

WikiDon 00:52, 26 August 2005 (UTC)

Also, "Achilles Last Stand" is fantastic, my favorite Zeppelin song. 13:23, 28 April 2007 (UTC)

"For Your Life"[edit]

The Yardbirds' track 'For Your Love' was written for them by Graham Gouldman, long before Page was in the band. Halmyre 20:00, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

...which is totally unrelated to "For Your Life" Edelmand 15:13, 21 May 2007 (UTC)

Move Discussion[edit]

The result of the proposal was moveAnthony Appleyard (talk) 10:09, 20 April 2009 (UTC)

Current vote is 13 supporting and 3 opposing the proposal to make "Presence" a disambiguation page. (21:58, 19 April 2009 (UTC))
Note: Struck votes are those of a confirmed sockpuppeter. -Teresa Knott
Addendum - all opposes are confirmed sockpuppets of a banned user. Exxolon (talk) 03:46, 20 April 2009 (UTC)

Subject - should Presence be moved to Presence (Led Zeppelin album) and Presence (disambiguation) be moved to Presence? Our guidelines say that unless there is one single concept that is by far the most common then the page should be a list of all relevant possibilities. See Power for an example. As such I...

  • Support moving as above. Exxolon (talk) 05:58, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

*Oppose the clear consensus was to keep it as a Led Zeppelin album. It was a clear cut majority too. This has been the Led Zeppelin album from the very start of wikipedia. MegX (talk) 05:59, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

    • If I'm reading it correctly that proposal was different - to do with moving Presence (technology) to Presence. This is a new proposal and that consensus is not binding on it. The fact that the album has been located here since the start is not a compelling reason for mantaining the status quo. Exxolon (talk) 06:21, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
  • Support or, at the very least leave the disambig page the way it was. There was no need to change it; both sides were getting what they wanted. That's just being petty. HalfShadow 06:06, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
  • Support -Stevertigo 06:08, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
    • PS: Extended comment (moved due to interruption at AN/I): (Note: I wrote some things at Talk:Presence while it was a redirect that were apparently overwritten. Can someone please restore them?) I understand that MegX is a fan of Led Zeppelin and is therefore arguing from the point of view that an album by that band deserves top place in terms of article titles. In reality though, the term the band used has some meaning greater than just an album title, and since we're largely in the business of explaining things to people here on Wikipedia, the concept of "presence" should be explained, as it actually means something. Whey else would Rob, Jim, John, and that drummer guy choose it as the title of an album? One they spent months working on, if I recall correctly. So, as I read the above comments, I see MegX chiming in about six times talking about this "consensus," which is valid. But that was before I wrote the article that deals with the actual concept. I've now done it, and that's why I redirected it. I would have changed it to a disambiguation page, in fact (agreeing with others above) if had move priveliges, but I simply redirected it. Meg, in spite of his blanking the page, was kind enough to inform me of his issue on my talk. But now, unless anyone has any objections, I request that an admin move the disambiguation page to Presence, and move the current album page somewhere else. It doesn't have to be anything in particular; it just has to follow our naming conventions for albums (title (album)), and be subordinate in usage to articles that deal with more important things. Regards, -Stevertigo 06:07, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
  • Support, since the album is not that important, even in LZ terms. The article has less than 1,000 views a day ([7]) while it's not sure that all readers come for the album. --Avant-garde a clue-hexaChord2 06:09, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

*Oppose, we've only just had an advertised open vote on this. HelenWatt (talk) 06:13, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

  • Did you read my comment above? -Stevertigo 06:18, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
  • Nope, that one was about Presence (technology), not the DAB page. --Avant-garde a clue-hexaChord2 06:19, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
*Don't agree. If you read the comments, it was clearly letting this page stay the Led Zeppelin album. HelenWatt (talk) 06:21, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
  • That proposal (and subsequent consensus) is NOT the same as this one. Just because that discussion ended 'no move' does not mean this one will be the same. My new proposal must be treated on it's own merits - that discussion is not relevant. Exxolon (talk) 06:23, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
*You're wrong. Read what User:Dancter said: "I think the disambiguation page is the way to go, and have filed a move request. Dancter (talk) 19:28, 2 March 2009 (UTC)" It was advertised on the appropriate page as a request to move the dab page, not the technology one. HelenWatt (talk) 06:32, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
Regardless, the album fails WP:PRIMARYTOPIC - and badly. I don't think there is a primary topic here. Exxolon (talk) 06:35, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
  • Well, the agreeable proposal seems to be to make this the disambiguation page. Naturally the Presence (album) will have a high place there. -Stevertigo 06:33, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
The voting period isn't over yet. 06:44, 19 April 2009 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by HelenWatt (talkcontribs)
The purpose of my dealing with this at all was based on the notion that people who might initally disagree with the change might be capable of reading a differing argument, from people who understand that this is an encyclopedia. -Stevertigo 07:09, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
I don't think you're in a position to take the moral high ground on this. You moved the page, not to a disambiguation page but to your own religious belief, without even requesting a move first or reading the Talk page above. What's more you added a dictionary definition to the disambiguation page, which is not what a disambiguation is for. HelenWatt (talk) 07:17, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
I respect your point of view, though I count eight inaccuracies in your above comment. -Stevertigo 07:21, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
  • It should certainly be moved. If I had to pick a primary topic, I'd probably go with an article about the concept all the other articles are derived from, although we don't appear to have one. --Carnildo (talk) 07:04, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
  • "Presence," as in "being present," is only a wiktionary item, though it's the basis for the theological concept. -Stevertigo 07:09, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
*God = Presence cannot be 1) scientifically proven and 2) is biased against atheists and non-believers, therefore it should not be the primary topic. HelenWatt (talk)
  • Well, can you agree that the "primary topic concept" is the general "being present" concept? Terminologically speaking, the "being present" concept is primary and the divine concept is secondary. Consider now that there is no article about the "being present" concept, and you might understand why your arguments do not succeed. -Stevertigo 08:34, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
  • Support putting the dab page there with wiktionary link. The album does not seem to be the primary topic as that refers to things that an overwhelming majority of users would be looking for. Rather it is a common word that has many different meanings. Even if one was relatively the most prominent - whether the album or the technology -, all readers looking for any of the others will be lead to wrong place and together they are probably the absolute majority.--Tikiwont (talk) 07:16, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

*I would like to know for those who are voting to support the move, what's their opinion on the disambiguation page for The Wall being moved to The Wall. If you look at the The Wall (disambiguation), there are in fact more entries there than Presence disambiguation. Why isn't The Wall being moved? MegX (talk) 08:00, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

  • Simple: It's The Wall, not Wall (or Meddle or Presence). Not to mention, the Floyd album sold a bit better than the LZ one and is wider known. Plus, did you notice the merge proposal at the DAB page? --Avant-garde a clue-hexaChord2 08:15, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
*That's a pretty lame merger proposal considering there are many articles on the disambiguation page named "The Wall", not "Wall". MegX (talk) 08:27, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
  • Note that calling someone's proposal "pretty lame" is itself "pretty lame." The Wall has little usage from the album other than a generic local place name (for things which have more unique names), TV shows, and wrestlers. That out of the way, what's your next unhelpful argument? -Stevertigo 08:34, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
*As someone else has already pointed out, you're in no position to take the moral high ground over this. MegX (talk) 09:11, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

*Oppose. this was already voted on with the same proposal a number of weeks ago and that was a legitimate vote not to change it. ZhaoHong (talk) 09:22, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

  • Support both moves (to album article and disambiguation page). The album is by no means the primary topic for this word. It's highly unlikely that majority of people who search for "presence" will be interested in reading about an album. As for the opposes which mention little more than "we voted on this before", consensus is not set in stone. Also, consensus ≠ majority vote. Chamal talk 10:12, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
  • Support. Agree with Chamal_N Theresa Knott | token threats 10:19, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

*Oppose On the contrary, I'm interested in reading about the album and I'm not even a fan. Also Stevertigo, if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all. No-one here by the looks of things agrees on your redirect to a religious term. A-Kartoffel (talk) 11:32, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

  • Support fairly obvious that the dab page should be the main page, there's no obvious primary topic. Black Kite 11:35, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
  • Support Linking to the dab page is more appropriate in this case as there is no straight up article. There are many entries in the dab page, and it just seems like the fans here are only voting because they enjoy the song. I'm a fan, but lets be logical here. To everyone saying there was a vote a short time ago, there is no time limit on how soon another vote can occur. The previous vote was different to this one as well. It seems a bit more of a range of people have been attracted this time, which is good. Matty (talk) 11:42, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
  • Support: It makes far more sense for Presence to link to Presence (disambiguation) than to the Led Zeppelin album. -- Darth Mike (talk) 17:56, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
  • Support move as proposed. While the album may be well known to many, it is not known to many as well. It is better to be presented a page which can direct them to the correct place than to have to keep clicking through links to get to the disambiguation page. ···日本穣? · Talk to Nihonjoe 18:55, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
  • Support. I really can't buy that an album should be a primary topic for this dictionary term that obviously has multiple associations. Dragons flight (talk) 19:53, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
  • Support move as proposed... c'mon, an album name as the main name? That doesn't even meet the common sense test. DreamGuy (talk) 21:14, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
  • Comment – This discussion has been seriously compromised by sock puppetry. It has recently come to light that MegX, HelenWatt, ZhaoHong, and A-Kartoffel are all sockpuppets of User:JamesBurns. Paul Erik (talk)(contribs) 02:53, 20 April 2009 (UTC)
    • So they are - that makes support universal. Exxolon (talk) 03:46, 20 April 2009 (UTC)
  • Support both moves. Lets not continue to permit an article about a minor album to squat on the page name of such a common noun. There are over 200 incoming links from other Wikipedia articles, and not all of them intend to link to an article about this album. Some examples are Scenera Research, Mobile Web Server (Symbian OS), and Glossary of rhetorical terms. I am in favor of moving the dab page to Presence so that the incoming links can be properly disambiguated. --Una Smith (talk) 06:06, 20 April 2009 (UTC)
By the way, in a case like this some fraction of the page view stats actually are unintentional views by people seeking one of the other pages listed on the dab page. I see the dab page gets a steady 20 or so hits per day; visiting the dab page is only one of several ways that a reader can recover after visiting the wrong page, so the true unintentional view rate may be higher. --Una Smith (talk) 06:14, 20 April 2009 (UTC)

Snow close?[edit]

  • Since the only oppose votes have come from sockpuppets of a banned user can we snow close this as passed? We'll need an admin to do this probably due to page histories etc. Exxolon (talk) 03:46, 20 April 2009 (UTC)
  • I was going to snow close this, but it's barely been 24 hours since this was proposed and there were some legitimate users who supported this page as the primary topic in the section above (mixed in with the socks, of course). I say give it another day or so and if the consensus is still strong move it then. Oren0 (talk) 05:45, 20 April 2009 (UTC)
  • You are not actually correct, and there is certainly no point in validating a troll by postponing what everyone agrees is a basic page move. There is no valid opposition above and therefore voting and discussion are not required. Admins can now go ahead and move this article to Presence (album), and move Presence (disambiguation) here (Presence). -Stevertigo 09:59, 20 April 2009 (UTC)

Recording time[edit]

In the article it is stated, the whole process of recording and mixing took them 18 days and it was finished on Nov 26, 1975. So, why is it stated in the info box "recorded November-December 11975" when it just was November? The mastering was maybe done in December. Saemikneu (talk) 19:03, 7 June 2012 (UTC)
