Correct title[edit]

Are we sure that the correct title of this compilation isn't just '18'?–Clpalmore 01:43, 12 October 2006 (UTC)

Maybe you are correct, but I say let's not change anything until there is a 110% definitive confirmation. There'd be nothing dumber than an edit war in the next few weeks over something relatively trivial as this. --Merbabu 02:02, 12 October 2006 (UTC)
And we've got that confirmation now. http://www.u2.com/highlights/?hid=313 --Jvd897 15:18, 1 November 2006 (UTC)

I wonder what version of Walk On is going to be on it? Album, video or single version? All 3 were released on various CD releases. --Merbabu 00:45, 2 November 2006 (UTC)

Methinks the album version because it's familiar, short, and there's 18 songs that have to fit, including longer ones like Sometimes You Can't... --Jvd897 00:59, 2 November 2006 (UTC)
I'm guessing it's the Hallellujah Mix. --Kristbg 01:01, 2 November 2006 (UTC)
Of course, the same argument can be applied to New Year's Day, the extended version of which wasn't on the mass-produced first compilation (and, in my opinion, is much better, just like the Hallelujah mix). --Jvd897 01:02, 2 November 2006 (UTC)
Hallelujuah mix? That's the single mix from memory. Stong piano intro, heavier drums and shorter mid-section? By the way JVD897, i got your message but didn't reply since it seems image is already here, right? thanks (PPS, i just got 3 edit conflicts in a row)--Merbabu 01:05, 2 November 2006 (UTC)
Sorry about that Merbabu, you can delete that message I guess. At the time I didn't have enough time to change the img myself -- and I saw something from you that you'd be working on the revert -- kristbg got there first apparently. Kudos!--Jvd897 01:10, 2 November 2006 (UTC)

User:flossy411 i'm the annonymous user that kept deleting the information bout the dvd i kept looking for the info but couldn't find it so i started to delete it because someone deleted my i will follow bonus track info therefore not knowing what they are talking about to me anyway i kept deleting.

Really? I just presumed it was on the U2.com cite for the CD. (and I was the one banging on about citations). OK, i take your point --Merbabu 15:09, 7 November 2006 (UTC)

I know that "Smile" is a confirmed track for UK iTunes Preorderers, and I made an assumption and added that it is prolly the same version on "Unreleased and Rare". Should that be removed? It makes sense to me that it's the same song, unless they just recently re-recorded it...

Fine if Smile is a confirmed track, but if we can only assume, it sholdn't be in an encyclopedia. And the important thing is, we will know for sure in a few weeks anyway - no need to get every little detail correct right this moment. Have a look at WP:CHILL. regards --Merbabu 22:47, 9 November 2006 (UTC) ..........Hi I'm The Guy Who Removed Smile as a bonus track Because it's not on the cd it's a digital release so that's my reason and i hope you agree with me.

Release date in infobox[edit]

Do we really need to have ALL the various release dates listed? And even if we do, must we have the flags too? How about just saying something like “Various 14 to 21st November?”--Merbabu 00:41, 22 November 2006 (UTC)

Indeed, it looks a little unnecessary. --Kristbg 19:40, 22 November 2006 (UTC)
According to the infobox directions, only the earliest known date should be referenced. Maybe just "November 2006" in the infobox and detail the individual releases in the article itself? If not all of the dates are needed, I would at least list Ireland, the UK, and the U.S. --McMillin24 contribstalk 01:29, 23 November 2006 (UTC)

iTunes[edit]

It seems every review on iTunes is about the fact you can't buy the studio verison of The Saints are coming. Should we add that?--User:NFAN3|NFAN3 16:43, 19 December 2006 (UTC)
