Lol

While you're here, I have a small question. Do you get the feeling that Welovelovato (talk · contribs) and Welovemiley (talk · contribs) are related? Novice7 (talk) 06:31, 23 July 2011 (UTC)

Yes, the names are similar. At first, I thought they might be related to Disney09, but then realized they aren't. Thanks for takin' a look :) Listening to Toni Braxton atm :) Novice7 (talk) 06:49, 23 July 2011 (UTC)
I'm so happy to know that you liked her music :) She was really good, and still his, but all the bankruptcy and personal issues (including a disease) has overtaken her career :( I was introduced to her music through Waiting to Exhale and I love her! My favorite song is "You're Makin' Me High" (yeah, I know dirrtty :D) Novice7 (talk) 10:09, 23 July 2011 (UTC)

Single Ladies

Wow. I will make sure to work along this time. JiveshTalk2Me 10:11, 22 July 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for telling me that. It feels nice when someone's work does not pass unnoticed. But i am grateful for the "fine-tuned" things you did as i am very bad at that. It pains me to remove the content i put in an article. Lol. JiveshTalk2Me 10:21, 22 July 2011 (UTC)
Are you still doing TBE? I have no more sources. Do you want more reviews? JiveshTalk2Me 10:23, 22 July 2011 (UTC)
Your work on Obsessed is too good. I hate working on films on Wikipedia. And Wow. Beyonce will have her first GTC. All GAs (songs) have already been done. So only the concert and its DVD article is left. Very NICE. JiveshTalk2Me 10:38, 22 July 2011 (UTC)
Did you mention the use of "Smash into You"? JiveshTalk2Me 10:57, 22 July 2011 (UTC)
Where did you put it? Did you mention the lyrical modification? JiveshTalk2Me 11:15, 22 July 2011 (UTC)
Read the last four lines here. The source is next to the information. JiveshTalk2Me 11:17, 22 July 2011 (UTC)
Is Cove really unreliable? Mariah Carey is FAC and the reliability of this source was never discussed at its FAC. JiveshTalk2Me 12:29, 22 July 2011 (UTC)
I was surprised Andrew led me here. haha. Good luck to both of you on the FAC. --Efe (talk) 08:51, 24 July 2011 (UTC)
Welcome. Hope you'll get the star! --Efe (talk) 09:52, 24 July 2011 (UTC)

A barnstar for you!

Andrew, I wish to thank you for your continued efforts to review and edit candidates for GA, such as Up in the Air (film). Dan Dassow (talk) 21:29, 23 July 2011 (UTC)

My World

Thanks for your edit but actually I meant the studio album "My World" instead of the EP... I have found 2 certifications and I'd be glad if you could include them!

Your offer is nice but I don't wanna join another side because I'm already in too much forums/chats etc. and it's not so great to spread so many personal dates if you know what I mean... --79.199.25.153 (talk) 20:56, 24 July 2011 (UTC)

Thank You!

Treble Clef Barnstar.png The Featured Sound Main Page Proposal Voter Barnstar
I was truly humbled by the overwhelming community support for the recent proposal to place featured sounds on the main page. The proposal closed on Tuesday with 57 people in support and only 2 in opposition.

It should take a few weeks for everything to get coded and tested, and once that is done the community will be presented with a mock up to assess on aesthetic appeal.

Finally, I invite all of you to participate in the featured sounds process itself. Whether you're a performer, an uploader, or just come across a sound file you find top quality, and that meets the featured sound criteria, you can nominate it at Wikipedia:Featured sound candidates. Featured sounds is also looking for people to help assess candidates (also at Wikipedia:Featured sound candidates.)

Thanks again for such a strong showing of support, and I hope to see you at featured sounds in the future.

Good Article promotion

Usher OMG Houston.jpg Congratulations!
Thanks for all the work you did in making Here I Stand (Usher album) a certified "Good Article"! Your work is much appreciated.

In the spirit of celebration, you may wish to review one of the Good Article nominees that someone else nominated, as there is currently a backlog, and any help is appreciated. All the best, – Quadell (talk)

Help with pictures?

Hey Andy! So, as you may have seen, the main Toni Braxton article has no good pictures. Can you ask for permission of one or two photographs through Flickr? Any two good ones you like :) Also, does NZ government publish free photos (like the US Gov?) I searched through Indian Gov, but there are no photographs of singers :( Novice7 (talk) 06:39, 26 July 2011 (UTC)

Thanks! Lol, I didn't know about that! Novice7 (talk) 06:47, 26 July 2011 (UTC)

Hey if you're online, can you do me a favor? Can you fix the points #3,#6 of Lead, #1,#3 of BG, #1,#3,#4 and #7 of Dev., #2 of Rec., #4, #10 of Comp. of Irresistible GA review?? Pretty please?? Sorry if I'm asking for too much [sic] Thanks, Novice7 (talk) 10:54, 27 July 2011 (UTC)

Oh, thank you sooo much!!! Thanks dude! Novice7 (talk) 02:43, 28 July 2011 (UTC)

Hello

I am interested in starting WikiProject:Rihanna (I kinda started it here (User:1111tomica/Sandbox1) and I really needs some tips. I saw your name, it was first on Wikipedia:WikiProject Beyoncé Knowles, so I have few questions about the project. Actually, the real main problem it's with the Assessment of the articles, I don't know really how to create it, or who can help created it. I would be greatfull if you could explain me some things about the project. Greetings Tomica1111 (talk) 14:34, 28 July 2011 (UTC)

Yeah 3x

Hi Adabow, if you have time, could you please review Yeah 3x for me? :) Oz talk 09:18, 29 July 2011 (UTC)

Thanks! Yeah sure. Oh sorry I thought you like Chris lol. Oz talk 09:26, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
Yeah same. That "Party Rock Anthem" song is really annoying lol. Oz talk 21:37, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) Oh yeah, it's generic and annoying. Btw, don't you guys feel that nowadays most of the songs are auto-tuned and contain profane lyrics? Novice7 (talk) 04:18, 30 July 2011 (UTC)
Yes and it sucks that those type of songs are popular than real music these days. Oz talk 08:30, 30 July 2011 (UTC)
Ok good to know :) Oz talk 08:22, 5 August 2011 (UTC)

Question

Can we ask people to comment at the FAC? Like i did when i nominated her discography? JiveshTalk2Me 11:54, 30 July 2011 (UTC)

Andrew, it will be very nice if you could find a photo of the ring and the glove. I placed one on the article long ago but you removed it because it was not a free image. Is there a free one? JiveshTalk2Me 18:21, 30 July 2011 (UTC)
What do you think of this? JiveshTalk2Me 13:36, 31 July 2011 (UTC)

More popular than Jesus

In regards to the second opinion you submitted for the GA nomination of the above referenced article, I would invite you to take another look. The assessment of this article was made by an inexperienced student that I am working with as an Online Ambassador. While the enthusiasm of this new editor is admirable, the editor does not yet have the knowledge of Wikipedia policies, guidelines, or Manual of Style to assess articles. As such, the article does not meet the Good Article criteria. Accordingly, it is recommended that the requesting editor resubmit the article for GA assessment and review. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Thank you, Cind.amuse (Cindy) 19:09, 30 July 2011 (UTC)

Re:

Just because it isn't active now, doesn't mean it won't be in the future. I've been placing them on her main articles, as well as some up there quality scale articles. nding·start 05:32, 31 July 2011 (UTC)

Hey Andrew. Sorry for the late reply. Actually, I always use what is available on line. And if I don't find what I like there, then Novice helps me with those :) He's the man for that. Ask him! :D--CallMeNathanTalk2Me 20:17, 31 July 2011 (UTC)

Is this good? Novice7 (talk) 06:43, 1 August 2011 (UTC)
Dude, I uploaded that :D I took a shot from the video, uploaded it to picresize, resized it (the best quality .jpg) and uploaded it to tinypic :D Novice7 (talk) 06:49, 1 August 2011 (UTC)

WikiCup 2011 July newsletter

Trophy.png

We are half way through the penultimate round of this year's WikiCup; there is less than a month to go before we have our final 8. Our pool leaders are New Zealand Adabow (submissions) (Pool A, 189 points) and Russia PresN (submissions) (Pool B, 165 points). The number of points required to reach the next round is not clear at this time; there are some users who still do not have any recorded points. Please remember to update your submissions' pages promptly. In addition, congratulations to PresN, who scored the first featured topic points in the competition for his work on Thatgamecompany related articles. Most points this round generally have, so far, come from good articles, with only one featured article (White-bellied Sea Eagle, from Scotland Casliber (submissions)) and two featured lists (Hugo Award for Best Graphic Story, from PresN and Grammy Award for Best Native American Music Album, from Flag of Portland, Oregon.svg Another Believer (submissions)). Points for Did You Know and good article reviews round out the scoring. No points have been awarded for In the News, good topics or featured pictures this round, and no points for featured sounds or portals have been awarded in the entire competition. On an unrelated note, preparation will be beginning soon for next year's WikiCup- watch this space!

There is little else to be said beyond the usual. Please list anything you need reviewing on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews, so others following the WikiCup can help, and please do help if you can by providing reviews for the articles listed there. However, please remember to continue to offer reviews generally at GAC, FAC and all the other pages that require them to prevent any backlogs which could otherwise be caused by the Cup- points are, of course, offered for reviews at GAC. Two final notes: Firstly, please remember to state your participation in the WikiCup when nominating articles at FAC. Finally, some WikiCup-related statistics can be seen here and here. As ever, questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup and the judges are reachable on their talk pages, or by email. Good luck! If you wish to start receiving or stop receiving this newsletter, please feel free to add or remove yourself from Wikipedia:WikiCup/Newsletter/Send. J Milburn and The ed17 11:20, 1 August 2011 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Here We Go Again (Ray Charles song)/archive1

Now that we have a GA, I have nominated this at Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Here We Go Again (Ray Charles song)/archive1. Come by and help me respond to concerns.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 19:05, 1 August 2011 (UTC)

We need one or two ISSNs.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 00:04, 2 August 2011 (UTC)
You can work on them now Ada :) I'll stay away lol Novice7 (talk) 04:40, 2 August 2011 (UTC)
Also, was there an official video for the Charles-Jones version. If so, we need a section in the article about it.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 05:31, 6 August 2011 (UTC)
The link you sent is not a music video. It is an interview. I have already incorporated that interview into the article.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 05:41, 6 August 2011 (UTC)

I Got That

Hello Adabow. I was wondering if you have some free time to re-evaluate "I Got That" for me? I've tried to work on it, and although i highly doubt it will ever be a GA, i just aim to not have it as a STUB anymore. Please and thank you :] Theuhohreo (talk) 15:23, 3 August 2011 (UTC)

Did you see my messages?

Can you please upload the deluxe edition cover for 4? JiveshTalk2Me 15:01, 1 August 2011 (UTC)
Waht do you think of this? It's a poll. But i think it should be included. JiveshTalk2Me 17:26, 3 August 2011 (UTC)

JiveshTalk2Me 08:30, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

Andrew, both of us know how false that poll is. No wonder how many times Lady GaGa fans must have voted. I read on a fansite that Gaga fans even buy her songs more than ten times. Lol. I have started to like "I Was Here". My favorite is "I Miss You". JiveshTalk2Me 10:02, 4 August 2011 (UTC)
It was both scary and funny. He must really hate "Super Bass". JiveshTalk2Me 10:11, 4 August 2011 (UTC)
Hmmm you must be right. Sorry for late reply, i am currently trying to sort out how i can improve "Love on Top". The composition section is a real mess. JiveshTalk2Me 10:31, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

Hello

Hey Adabow... How are you? I need a favor from you, since you are from New Zealand. I have to find the Platinum certification for "What's My Name?" from her official RIANZ website. I need it per GAN of Loud. I tried, but I can not find it. I would be greatful if you can do that. Thank you :) Tomica1111 (talk) 20:23, 5 August 2011 (UTC)
