Bio Project question[edit]

My understanding is that the BLP banner has to be in place for any article that deals with living people. There are still living members of the Comets, so therefore the BLP banner must be in place for the Bill Haley & His Comets article. Is there a specific policy that says this is not allowed? If there is, we have a problem because there are potential BLP issues that could arise in this article. For now I am reverting the removal of the BLP banner pending further discussion. 23skidoo (talk) 00:30, 14 January 2008 (UTC)

Good point, fine with me. BNutzer (talk) 00:39, 14 January 2008 (UTC)

Template broken[edit]

Currently, this template adds superfluous brackets }} to the talk pages where it is used. In some cases, it also adds parts of the page title before that. BNutzer (talk) 14:47, 26 January 2008 (UTC)

Fixed it. Thanks for the heads up. Absolon S. Kent (talk) 17:55, 26 January 2008 (UTC)

WikiProject Germany Invitation[edit]

Flag of Germany.svg

Hello, BNutzer! I'd like to call your attention to the WikiProject Germany and the German-speaking Wikipedians' notice board. I hope their links, sub-projects and discussions are interesting and even helpful to you. If not, I hope that new ones will be.

--Zeitgespenst (talk) 23:13, 10 March 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for the invitation and the watch links. My focus of interest in my Wikipedia activities is currently different, yet I will keep a (watchlist) eye on them. BNutzer (talk) 14:17, 16 March 2008 (UTC)


Okay. I wasn't adding any WikiProject templates to my entries because I am not a member of any projects; I didn't feel comfortable using them from the outside. Chubbles (talk) 14:08, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

Neville Whitehead (bassist)[edit]

Well, there's a start at an article... Bondegezou (talk) 18:01, 17 March 2008 (UTC)

WPBio tags[edit]

I was doing it for a while but stopped, because I wasn't really sure it was worthwhile. The tags are pretty much there for administrative purposes, and I began to think my time was better used elsewhere; I'm much more concerned with content than behind-the-scenes work. No disrespect to you, of course, but isn't there a way to automate this process? Chubbles (talk) 05:04, 22 April 2008 (UTC)

Just a note - I went through my entire watchlist and tagged all the bio pages which were redlinks, except for the letters R, S, and T. So the rest of the alphabet should be less fruitful for untagged band/musician pages I've created. I don't know that I will finish the other letters; it's incredibly boring work, and my hat's off to you - I don't know how you keep it up! Chubbles (talk) 18:03, 27 April 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for the notice. I guess that for me it's a bit different: I am interested in music and musicians, and tagging lets me read quite a few others' articles about those. For you, it might be easiest to add the template right after creating an article to prevent having to tag many of your own articles at a time ... I am working thru your R, S and T. Regards, BNutzer (talk) 21:16, 28 April 2008 (UTC)
OK, R is totally done now. Chubbles (talk) 20:53, 1 May 2008 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Brainville childrenscrusade.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Brainville childrenscrusade.jpg. You've indicated that the image meets Wikipedia's criteria for non-free content, but there is no explanation of why it meets those criteria. Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. If you have any questions, please post them at Wikipedia:Media copyright questions.

Thank you for your cooperation. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page. STBotI (talk) 13:43, 22 May 2008 (UTC)

Requesting reassessment[edit]

Hi. I noticed you had removed the class rating on Peter O'Toole in order to have it reassessed. This is fine, but I wanted to let you know that all one need do to have a reassessment is post a link and note at WP:WikiProject Actors and Filmmakers/Assessment#Requesting an assessment. Thanks! Wildhartlivie (talk) 03:38, 13 July 2008 (UTC)

Hi Wildhartlivie, fellow ongoing project assessment driver ;) When looking at the project page (only now), I noticed that it says "If you have made significant changes to an article and would like an outside opinion on a new rating for it, please feel free to list it below." I didn't make significant changes, I just ran somehow into the article during my musician-work-group tagging and assessing - and I didn't want to "make a big fuzz" about the (in my view) outdated Start assessment ... Besides, simply removing the class parameter is easier, so I didn't even think about making some "more official" request ... Best regards, BNutzer (talk) 09:48, 13 July 2008 (UTC)

Shane Jalkson and the Molexes[edit]

Congratulations on spotting this hoax. I have done some research and taken it to AfD here. Regards, JohnCD (talk) 09:35, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

I would like to invite you to the WP:ROCK project. --Be Black Hole Sun (talk) 12:00, 9 October 2008 (UTC)

Thank you, my musical interests also include rock, but go beyond that as far as I perceive them. I will definitely consider it. If you could let me know of the "requirements"/tasks and why you "picked" me, I would appreciate that. BNutzer (talk) 19:51, 9 October 2008 (UTC)

No content in Category:WikiProject Jazz album articles[edit]

Information icon.svg

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Category:WikiProject Jazz album articles, by another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Category:WikiProject Jazz album articles has been empty for at least four days, and its only content has been links to parent categories. (CSD C1).

Pardon me for that![edit]

I've been trying to remove those "automatic" stubs on the talk pages and got preoccupied. I'm currently trying to figure out how people manage to make a seemingly invisible list either of all members of a band, or at least the former members, as with King Crimson. It would be a monumental help. Do you know, or maybe can you ask someone who might know? Also, I've been working on the Cat Stevens page. (Just thought I'd throw this in while I'm groveling ;) ) Looking for someone who knows how to put music clips into articles. I think Cat Stevens certainly would qualify for this- he's still getting songwriting awards in back to back years for songs he wrote while a teenager!

Anyway, thanks for that great catch. I've been editing Wikipedia for a couple years all day every day, but have little contact with others, apparently. This last 2 months I've been finding acceptable photos for pages needing them. So, there's over 500 photos I'm now checking to see if I made infoboxes for-- mostly yes, but now, I'm finding sloppy people who won't do that. They just slap that pic on the page and walk away. How RUUUDE!! :) I can use any help and/or advice you have!--leahtwosaints (talk) 23:18, 27 April 2009 (UTC)

In the King Crimson article's infobox code, it says: | Past_members = See: [[King Crimson#Membership|King Crimson membership]]. So, people use that kind of entry to have "Former members" point to the article's section with the heading "Membership". For details, use the "Edit" button on the article and look at what's there. Regards, BNutzer (talk) 23:48, 27 April 2009 (UTC)

Oh WOW![edit]

I'm sorry to bother you again, what's your name? Mine is Leah, obviously. I noticed the skills and languages you have and it seems if you are willing there might be some times I can use your help and vice-versa. My languages are different, and not as good as they were once were.

I mentioned attempting to find missing photos. I keep finding great jazz performers-- my father raised us up on Sarah Vaughn, Joe Pass, Charlie Parker, Ella Fitzgerald, etc. I just uploaded a photo of Amina Figarova!! However, often the artists I contact from Flickr, for example, who have large collections of jazz performers tend to be Dutch, German, or Norweigan. Perhaps you can help if I get in a language bind? And last, a friend of mine, Ron Holloway, took it upon himself to edit his own article. While it's true he was in Dizzy Gillespie's final quintet for five years, and has (and IS) playing with some greats, I tried to teach him about editing, etc. You can see on his page he has no idea what inline citations are, and I did all the editing for the first half of his article, but then told him to practice with other Wiki groups to learn. He chose to ignore me, and the result is how bad the second half of that page is. Thanks again, --leahtwosaints (talk) 00:10, 28 April 2009 (UTC)

Ginger Baker[edit]

What is your source for death of Ginger Baker? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Cmakers (talkcontribs) 01:18, 9 August 2009 (UTC)

I could not find any source for his death after someone else had added his death (see Talk:Ginger Baker#died 08 August 2009?). The misinformation (?!) has been removed from the article ... BNutzer (talk) 10:16, 9 August 2009 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image (File:Caravan of Dreams-album cover.jpg)[edit]


Thanks for uploading File:Caravan of Dreams-album cover.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of "file" pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Aspects (talk) 23:33, 20 November 2009 (UTC)

German translations and other things[edit]

Thanks! I edit biographies of musicians if you look at my Userpage, under the tiny gallery of photos I like I have a rather long list of photos I've negotiated, uploaded via Creative Commons to Wikimedia Commons and placed (mostly here on the English Wikipediabut a little on ones in Portuguese Dutch, and Spanish, but would like to add photos to German Wikipedia articles. I may need your help. When I first started editing in English, I was told to use the English Elvis Presley infobox as a model for the way all infoboxes should be done here. Perhaps you can recommend one in German that was properly done that I can use as a reference for an infobox for an individual musician's infobox, and one for bands from the German Wikipedia I can use as a model. I have a request regarding discographies and Rory Gallagher. I would like help in assembling the article for Rory Gallagher, but am inexperienced in creating new album pages (where to find sources and even the album song lists, etc.) If someone (YOU?) can either help-- or teach me how to create just one of the album pages properly in English here, and --there's a separate discography for Rory Gallagher but a lot of things still on his article, collaborations, posthumously released records, DVDs, etc. that haven't been added.. I need advice, and there are a lot of German sources for his article; he was very popular there, some on video. He was one of the first three acts ever to play Rockpalast! Can you let me know what you think on my talk page? Thanks. --Leahtwosaints (talk) 16:55, 2 April 2010 (UTC)

Gallagher albums and article[edit]

I am really excited that you are willing to help me at least learn the album page/discography stuff for Rory Gallagher. If it's OK, do you want to choose the live Taste album you proposed and maybe another album by the Rory Gallagher solo act? I'm the one who added some links to names of albums on the main page where some reviews were I bumped into, like Rolling Stone magazine. Also, for the text of the articles, some kind person scanned lots of copies of Guitar World and other magazines (in the external links section), plus I have two playlists on You Tube of Gallagher himself speaking on radio and television programmes. You take the lead, and I'll sure help! --Leahtwosaints (talk) 02:31, 3 April 2010 (UTC)

BLP flag in project banners[edit]

Thanks for explaining that rationale. It does seem a bit bizarre to be flagging groups in that way. Extending that, we'd have the Count Basie Orchestra sitting with BLP flags until the last member of the contemporary group dies? For that matter, I can see no reason why a musical group should be different from any other venture, so there would be an argument that a defunct company such as Lehman Brothers should also be treated as a BLP? But I realise you're the messenger not the policy setter! AllyD (talk) 21:53, 19 April 2010 (UTC)

BLP question[edit]

I posted an answer to your question from 3 days ago at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Musicians#living=yes for articles about musical groups, and since it was a while ago, thought I'd point to it from here. I notice the section about this one (on this page) where you gave another user advice that doesn't seem to match the conclusion I found. Hope I'm not being a butt-inski, but I'll point the other user to that reply, and both of you can decide if a revert is needed. --A Knight Who Says Ni (talk) 12:34, 22 April 2010 (UTC)

Albums by artist categorization[edit]

Hi there BNutzer, you recently took part of a discussion at WT:ALBUMS regarding the Albums by artist categorization. I would like you invite you to further comment on the subsection Albums by genre and nationality, as no one has contributed to the discussion lately. I would really appreciate comments, as I would like to get this proposal off the ground. Regards. — ξxplicit 19:23, 8 May 2010 (UTC)

Irish bands Rory Gallagher, Thin Lizzy/Phil Lynott[edit]

Hi, I thought I'd contact the people who may be willing to edit/contribute to the Thin Lizzy articles, and the ones for Rory Gallagher and Phil Lynott. These are the people who have shown interest that I've thought might be involved, including yourself:

I've begun to add photos to some of these articles, and more will follow! This will necessarily involve expanding the band page, and should flow into the individual members pages as well.

About the people I listed, DISEman and Discographer both are willing to help with discography and album pages, (and some has been done already for Rory Gallagher, separate from the article). Agadant, Kohoutek1138, and BNutzer may help with editing if asked nicely- I already did in advance for Rory Gallagher, but they may be prodded into helping with the Thin Lizzy articles. That leaves myself. I think that joining the

Belfast crest This user is a member of
Wikiproject Belfast

Wikiproject:Belfast if you haven't done so... it should help in making articles on people like Phil Lynott, Brian Downey, and Gerry McAvoy more of a priority. Maybe we can enlist the help of others on the Wikiprojects for Irish music?

I sent to the UK and got a hardback book by Gerry McAvoy: Riding Shotgun 35 Years on the Road With Rory Gallagher and Nine Below Zero. I suspect that it's more about McAvoy than Gallagher, but it should help somewhat as a solid reference and I've got two playlists in You Tube with live interviews with Rory Gallagher. I've also begun another playlist of documentaries and special interviews for Thin Lizzy and Phil Lynott. My You Tube playlist site name is 4rainbowed there. Do you have a You Tube site? If we connect there as friends, you can see all the Lizzy and Rory stuff I've gathered. Let me know what you think about all of this. Please ask other editors who may have an interest in these Irish bands to join us, and we might possibly have a Wikiproject we can list so others might find us! --Leahtwosaints (talk) 17:00, 20 May 2010 (UTC)

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 05:11, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

Needing your help[edit]

Hi, are you interested in assisting a German photographer in answering some of his questions about joining the Wikipedia? He writes and reads English fairly well but it would be best for him to talk to a bi-lingual editor-- German and English. Please drop a note on my talk page either way. Thanks. --Leahtwosaints (talk) 21:45, 18 August 2010 (UTC)

Yes! I think he might at least be willing to share more photos, or help in Wikipedia Commons, (of which I know very very little about) and hopefully en.Wikipedia or de.Wikipedia. But to have someone who can communicate in both English and German would be OUTSTANDING, since he is perhaps a level 3 from an English Wikipedia standpoint. His name is Klaus Hiltscher. He can be emailed at: Please do refer to a very good German/English Wikipedian. Thanks- you are so kind. --Leahtwosaints (talk) 23:34, 18 August 2010 (UTC)

Red Link Recovery[edit]

Hello. As a German-speaking WikiGnome, I'd like to solicit your help in testing a new tool. For a few years now, the Red Link Recovery Project has been using the Red Link Recovery Live tool to track down and fix unnecessarily red links in articles. Recently, the tool has been expanded to work on non-English Wikipedias. A small set of suggested fixes for red-links on the German-language Wikipedia have been prepared and I'm hoping to interest some German-language speakers (such as yourself) to work through them.

If you are interested, please visit Each time you refresh the page you'll be presented with three new suggested fixes. I'll be happy to answer any questions on the tools talk page. - TB (talk) 17:44, 20 September 2011 (UTC)

Review request: Sabu Toyozumi[edit]

I'm wondering if you'd take a look at my article. The first time it was reviewed fairly I feel, as there were not enough citations and notability was not sufficiently established. However, I did a major overhaul and now an editor who specialises in the military has included an A7 incorrectly in his review.

I feel that the article meets the criteria set out in: Wikipedia:MUSIC#Criteria_for_musicians_and_ensembles especially 5 & 6 & 1. Possibly also 4 though there is difficulty establishing this due to a) the artist being Japanese b) the artist apparently not being very fastidious when it comes to collecting and making this kind of material available and c) the artist apparently having no manager of publicity agent.

I am contacting you as an editor and as a member of the Jazz project in the hope that you can make a more accurate assessment of this article's suitability for wikipedia.

Here is the article: Wikipedia_talk:Articles_for_creation/Sabu_Toyozumi

Many thanks for your time. Drywell (talk) 12:19, 16 January 2012 (UTC)
