Talk:Songwriters Hall of Fame

Is there any reason why the induction dates (which I had put in when I made my earlier list) were deleted? Seems to me this is useful information. BRG 18:47, Apr 29, 2004 (UTC)

Definitely needed. There are many names on this list that cannot be found on a search of the hall of fame internet site. Nick Cave and Elliott Smith for example. Is this list valid and if so where does this list come from?

Page reformatting needed[edit]

This massive list of names is not helpful, and my guess is being abused, with names just being added without actually being in the Hall of Fame, as the list may be perceived as a Wikipedia Hall of Fame. Unless someone has a better idea, we probably need to scrap it and start over, only adding names if we have a specific year that they were inducted, and/or a reference proving that they're official. --Elonka 18:43, 2 April 2006 (UTC)


This article was completely unreadable as a blob of text, why was this not done before? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:30, 23 October 2010 (UTC)

Ambiguous about the subject[edit]

This article is written like a (low-class) advertisement for the SHF. I enjoy the very informative website, but there's not much here about the organization. Lots of unsubstantiated claims are made, for which I added templates requesting more specifics. Who gets these scholarships, which schools do they go to, how helpful are they to their careers? If there's really a " New York City, United States" office ... WHERE is it? In a parking garage in Bensonhurst?
If the SHF is "an arm" of the National Academy of Popular Music (the only reference there is dead today), what are the other "arms" of the NAPM, formed in 1988 by Sammy Cahn and Bob Leone, and how did the SHF (apparently founded in 1969 by Johnny Mercer and two publishers) become an arm? The SHF's About page is more helpful. Really ... enquiring minds want to know!
Good thing this article is 'unrated', I'd rate it 'Flop'. Twang (talk) 21:55, 11 November 2013 (UTC)
