This template is bigger than many articles! I think it ought to be seriously trimmed. It doesn't need to include a complete album discography, for example - the key, most notable albums will do. --kingboyk 18:30, 4 March 2006 (UTC)

actually, i think that it's fine the way it is with McCartney's solo work and it should have a "With The Beatles" category, sure, everyone knows that he was a member of the beatles but a section on this template would be very good. 15:11, 13 January 2007 (UTC)

Your right, this template has a number of major issues.

It is missing some albums, for example Chaos and creation isn’t on there, and neither is memory almost full.

Also,why list all the Beatle albums in this template, when we have a Beatles template underneath? The Beatles template underneath is fine.

Past Masters I • Past Masters II are not Beatles Studio albums. They are compilation albums.

The links to other pages are wrong. A good example here is the link to the Beatles One Compilation album. Pages also exist for Beatles Past Masters 1 & 2. All you have to do is look at the Beatles template below.

Unless there are any major complaints, i will Fix this template on Tuesday.

Ok has somebody just gone and edited it today? Fair enough, it saves me the hassle. Honans (talk) 15:46, 24 August 2008 (UTC)

Снова в СССР[edit]

If this is printed this way, Снова в СССР, or in upper case as СНОВА В СССР, then it is pronounceable, after a fashion, as English, since it appears to read "Choba".

But if you display it in mixed case italic, Снова в СССР, as the template does, then the letter В turns into God knows what, from the perspective of a typical person who does not read any Cyrillic language.

So I have changed the Cyrillic in its Roman equivalent, which is pronounceable by the average reader.

What matters in an encyclopedia is visual recognition, not whether you think people can pronounce it. Снова в СССР looks closer to what is printed on the album cover, and matches the title of the Wikipedia article. Since the title of the album is not "Snova v SSSR", I hope you will please revert your change. Thanks! GoingBatty (talk) 01:41, 3 December 2010 (UTC)
