Are you thinking of creating an article on a band you know? First, check to see if there is already an article for the band. Next, remember that Wikipedia has certain music notability requirements that bands should meet in order to have their own article. Some of these include being featured in multiple non-trivial published works or winning a major music award, such as a Grammy, Juno or Mercury Music Award. A band need not meet all of these criteria, but it should meet at least one of them.
With appreciation to your thoughtful and sensitive navigation of the ship in the Monty Hall case. Mathematicians (of which I used to be one) aren't easy to communicate with, and mathematicians going mathematical and losing everyone else (as well as each other) was one of the key problems here. I think the pushback on some of your original proposals was sound, but regardless I deeply appreciated the combination of pragmatism, challenging questions where you perceived a real issue, and adaptability in the discussion on the proposed decision page, to get around the sticky points in #11 and reach a solution that works for (nearly) everyone.

For dealing with User:J3mm0 in the decisive fashion you did. Sometimes the line between nasty but sane, and just pure crazy is very bright... Cerejota (talk) 07:44, 3 September 2011 (UTC)
