You can't put "to be announced" sections without 3rd party (or if you have to, primary) references, else it is just original research, a rumor, or simply false. WP:CRYSTALBALL as well as WP:V covers this. Dennis Brown (talk) 00:41, 31 October 2011 (UTC)

Clean up[edit]

The cleanup/reorganize tag was added because the color scheme seems more like trying to match the colors of the logo than making it like other similar articles, which is inappropriate via WP:MOS. Dennis Brown (talk) 00:44, 31 October 2011 (UTC)


So Dennis Brown I'm sure you're a really nice guy, but it looks like you're adding the tags not because of the the article needing a cleanup and reorganizing but just because the color scheme of the column boxes are not the color scheme of original boxes and are matching the Roc Nation colors and of the logo.

That is just plain out bias it not my fault that other people do not do this when creating a record label studio album discography, which they can and you have not seen one with a color scheme on them. All I have done is put the 3 basic colors Black, Red and White of Roc Nation on a original Wikipedia column to distinguish it from other record label albums discography and the other names of the artists that are on the article, because the article would grow as those and more artist release more studio albums and mixtapes, which makes it appropriate and not inappropriate as you have stated for you reason of adding cleanup/reorganize tags. Once again all I did is add 3 basic colors to the original columns Black, Red and White which anybody can do on any other record label discographies on Wikipedia, but I may have been the first to do this new color scheme styling of a record label studio album discography that does not mean you just add tags that are not meant to be on a specific article that is formatted, organized and written like any other record label albums discographies on Wikipedia and is fully verified.

There is no Wikipedia rule that says this is not justified for a record label studio album discography except for you Dennis Brown, I'm sure you're a really nice guy, but this just plain bias, which Wikipedia does not condone from established editors or administrators.

  • What I am going by is the actual Manual of Style here, ie: Wikipedia:Manual_of_Style_(text_formatting)#Color, in particular, as it applies to accessibility. I'm sure there are other guidelines as well. As far as "bias", well, yes, most experienced editors do have a bias to make the encyclopedia look consistent. This isn't a bad thing.

    • Dennis asked for my p[inion as an experienced editor (and administrator) here. Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, and follows a standard format. It's not a collection of promotional web pages, where every group and company gets distinguished by their own design. We limit that expressiveness to the logo in the infobox. this is pretty basic here, and its not rezally a matter for discussion; that's why we have a manual of style. The colors must be changed to the standard. Non-standard presentations make for an article that looks like an advertisement, and I could even see my way to deleting it for that reason under WP:CSD#G11 The label can express its idividuality elsewhere where it's appropriate. Here, we just describe it in a neutral fashion, complete with out neutral standard color scheme. DGG ( talk ) 12:50, 31 October 2011 (UTC)
