Infobox title, Pt. 2: Sia or "Sia Furler" again?[edit]

In the previous RfC, consensus decided to stick to just "Sia", even when the latest RM said to have first and last name in the article title. Somehow, the surname is added in the infobox. Shall we enforce the previous RfC and then re-remove "Furler" from the infobox, or shall we retain "Furler" in the infobox? --George Ho (talk) 04:49, 13 May 2016 (UTC)

  • Comment - As an outside observer coming in blind, just glancing at the article, it looks pretty clear that it should be simply "Sia" in the infobox, as that is the WP:COMMONNAME. The lead even makes it clear that, as a performer, she has a mononym. Quite frankly, I'm surprised that the lead doesn't begin with "Sia", and then expand to state her birthname (maybe even in parenthesis). Fieari (talk) 07:04, 13 May 2016 (UTC)
Fieari, have you read the latest RM from last year yet, the one that resulted in replacing the parenthetical term with the surname? George Ho (talk) 08:14, 13 May 2016 (UTC)
  • Comment - Infobox should include only "Sia" as per WP:COMMONNAME and as Fierari noted, the lead already explains that she is referred to mononymously as Sia. Meatsgains (talk) 02:59, 3 June 2016 (UTC)
  • Comment - The OED says there is no such word in the English language as 'mononymously'. Should the article adopt 'Sia' on its own then the problem goes away, but otherwise what is wrong with 'usually known as Sia'? I should perhaps mention that the OED does recognise 'anonymously' and many other similar words ending '-ly' treesmill (talk) 19:52, 3 September 2016 (UTC)

Article content change: Sia or Furler?[edit]

There is a clear consensus to continue to use "Sia" instead of "Furler" throughout the whole article per WP:COMMONNAME and per the previous discussion at Talk:Sia Furler/Archive 2#Infobox title: Sia or "Sia Furler"?. Cunard (talk) 04:01, 18 July 2016 (UTC)

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made on the appropriate discussion page. No further edits should be made to this discussion.

The current revision uses "Sia" throughout the whole article. I want to change from "Sia" to "Furler" to be consistent with the present title. However, in previous discussions, consensus prefer "Sia" in the infobox instead. Therefore, I figure that a discussion is needed instead. What are your thoughts on this proposal? --George Ho (talk) 20:31, 5 June 2016 (UTC)

  • Sia. I came here from the RfC notice. It seems to me that this is the name that she identifies by publicly. It's OK to have the full name as the page title, for disambiguation purposes. --Tryptofish (talk) 22:39, 5 June 2016 (UTC)
  • Sia - Summoned by bot but also contributed to last RfC above. Per WP:COMMONNAME and the fact she is known mononymously as Sia, we should refer to her throughout the article as such. Meatsgains (talk) 18:18, 7 June 2016 (UTC)
  • Sia per both of the above; her surname provides natural disambiguation but shouldn't be extensively used elsewhere per COMMONNAME. —⁠烏⁠Γ (kaw)  06:50, 14 June 2016 (UTC)
  • Sia I would keep it as their stage names as many Wikipedia articles has been consistent on doing so. For instance, Snoop Dogg and Ice-T to name a few. Nick2crosby (talk) 22:57, 21 June 2016 (UTC)
  • Sia, for the same reasons as given in the infobox discussion on the previous archive page. Everyone appears to agree that the subject's common name is "Sia", and that she performs under that name. For the same reasons, Beyonce is so-called throughout her article, rather than being referred to as "Knowles". Caeciliusinhorto (talk) 08:32, 28 June 2016 (UTC)

Image license problem for Sia performing photograph by Kris Krug.jpg?[edit]

I'm worried that the image "Sia performing photograph by Kris Krug.jpg" is not compatible with Wikipedia. On its Wikimedia Commons page, the license is listed as "Attribution-ShareAlike 2.0" but if you go back to the Flickr page (https://www.flickr.com/photos/kk/2350132325/) it is listed as Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 2.0 which I thought wouldn't work because of Wikipedia not being a place for noncommercial-only licensed content. On the image's page it says "It was reviewed on 20 August 2009 by the FlickreviewR robot" so maybe the author changed the license after FlickerreviewR bot got to it?

Thanks.Dwiki (talk) 04:29, 3 August 2016 (UTC)

Personal life[edit]

It's an encyclopedia. Are all the details needed?Xx236 (talk) 09:46, 20 September 2016 (UTC)

Check some of the sources, esp. the New York Times article, she talks quite openly about those things. Feel free to rewrite some of it though. Karst (talk) 10:06, 20 September 2016 (UTC)
