Deleting the lists[edit]

With the addition of yet another unreferenced list to this article I propose to remove all the lists from this article. The information contained in the lists is available on the BC's website. A summary of the type of artists featured at the festival could be included in the text of the article. Anyone else have any thoughts? Lame Name (talk) 17:56, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

Site location[edit]

I've removed the part about the location of the festival moving to legoland, as it was false. I've corrected the tense of the remaining sentence, and made the link to Eastnor Castle link to the wiki page for same. Bowdie (talk) 19:57, 1 December 2010 (UTC)

Links[edit]

These longtime external links were removed recently:

The reasons given in the edit summaries were "remove spam links" and "WP:ELNO". The links are not spam links, and they don't violate WP:ELNO.

I won't be editing this page though, so others can discuss this further. --Timeshifter (talk) 19:31, 1 January 2009 (UTC)

What do they add to the article? The first is selling tickets which is spam in my book. Lame Name (talk) 20:21, 1 January 2009 (UTC)

External links[edit]

Added two external links.

Article published in The Independent on 7 Aug, 2010 is used to update wrong information knowingly / unknowingly in The Big Chill. The information published in newspaper, which was sourced from the same wiki page, is a perfect example of how Vandalism can propagate misinformation. Please see above mentioned 2 links for more information.


  • FWIW, the "Wanky Balls" edit seems to have been first added on 4 August 2010 [1], and remained in the article until 9 August [2], by which time it had been quoted as fact by a journalist at The Independent. This article has fewer than 30 watchers, so nonsense edits may go unnoticed for longer than usual.--♦IanMacM♦ (talk to me) 16:31, 19 August 2010 (UTC)
We have an IP address back attempting to add the "Wanky Balls" info back into the article, specifically into the lead section. It's funny, and a gorgeous example of slacker journalism, and you can certainly argue for a brief mention of the controversy somewhere in the article, cited to the offending Independent piece. There's probably a place for the incident elsewhere in Wikipedia too, although our article on Lazy journalism is excessively stubby even for a stub. What it doesn't merit is the addition of statements along the lines of "The Big Chill festival, also known as the Wanky Balls Festival" in the lead section. Not true, and undue weight given to a minor occurence which just happened to involve this article rather than another. Karenjc 13:09, 30 January 2011 (UTC)
