Mediatraffic is not a reliable source. Most sites with .de in the url (denoting a forum, self-published sources) arent reliable. Dan56 (talk) 12:24, 4 March 2012 (UTC)


And where is your reliable source puts it sold 5.7? Do not even have links that lead to a source where you put that..

I find it incredible to continue staying with those sales when it sold over a million more! (sorry for mi english)

Yes, everything in the lead should be, at the very least, sourced in the article body. In this case, the statement you're referring to that is in the lead is also in the commercial performance section. Dan56 (talk) 04:24, 5 March 2012 (UTC)


All the websites that say they sold 5.7 are dated 2010. During the 2011 'Recovery' has continued to sell throughout the world. At Billboard you can see, and surpassed the 4 millions of copies. Him continue to sell in the U.S. and still putting 2010 sales?

You search on google and see as many sites say their sales are between 6 and 7 million of copies.

Here are links where it says it has sold 7 million copies:

Also in the part of "Commercial Performance" says that: By the end of its release year, and only six months after release, Recovery had sold over 5,700,000 albums worldwide

I mean, the end of the year and six months after its release. We are in 2012 and the album was released almost two years.

That site is a fansite; no user-generated content per WP:RS. This works itself out: if the sales figure is notable enough, it's reported through a reliable source. Feel free to find one, but we can't assume and try to find any source. Dan56 (talk) 19:43, 5 March 2012 (UTC)

Cinderella man new article[edit]

I think since cinderella man even though it was never released as a single it should be created an article about it since has charted on the billboard and also was certified gold by the RIAA .

You know cinderella man is a song from the album ..... I think it should be created an special article that talks about it i DON'T know if I can explain myself clearly .

Semi-protected edit request on 17 December 2015[edit]

Hi I would like to change the album sales and worldwide sales all together because the album has sold about 6.5 million copies since it's release and been on the chart for 212 weeks in total so i would like to be requested to edit this article again thanks yours sincerely 118.93.57.86 (talk) 08:11, 17 December 2015 (UTC)

Then I would suggest learning how to add sources. The majority of your edits appear to be WP:OR. Robvanvee 11:21, 17 December 2015 (UTC)
