Re: User:Benzband/Garageland into the main namespace[edit]

Yes why not! It's good enough and maybe you can remove both stub templates from the article. Please tell me when you move it. I would like to add it to Wikipedia:WikiProject The Clash and Template:The Clash → (I took a look at this navigation template and Garageland cannot be placed there without renaming the Singles section to Songs). Also, take a look at Wikipedia:Did you know for nominating a couple of lines from the article (maybe, the "...preferably with the engine running" part. All the best. –pjoef (talkcontribs) 18:14, 1 November 2011 (UTC)

Perfect! That's exactly what I thought. Of course the article must be in the main namespace before the nomination at DYK. –pjoef (talkcontribs) 19:14, 1 November 2011 (UTC)


I think that we must remove Garagelanders from the last line of the Tributes section. Garagelanders - White Man in Hammersmith Palais, Garagelanders - Garageland and Garagelanders - Should I Stay Or Should I Go are the only available videos on YouTube and all of them come from the same channel. It is not more than a schoolboys' band from the Oceana High School in Pacifica, California, and, in any case, we can not use WP:Clash (ref #32: The Clash Tribute Bands - at WikiProject The Clash) as a reference. I tried to find out some other sources about them but I failed. Cheers. –pjoef (talkcontribs) 17:23, 2 November 2011 (UTC)

Update #2

If this is for mantaining of the revision history of both the page and its talk page, then it is more a morge, else you may just copy the source(s) into the article (and eventually its talk page) in the main namespace. Nevermind... I have just read your latest message. Congratulations! –pjoef (talkcontribs) 19:03, 2 November 2011 (UTC)

Update #3

I added some inernal links to Garageland (song) but I do not know how to add it to {{The Clash}}. There is another template {{The Clash singles}} that at the moment is not used because all of their singles are featured within {{The Clash}} navigation template. Maybe I'll move {{The Clash singles}} to {{The Clash songs}}. About "the move of moving", well, it was not so good because it deleted the old revision history for the article /o\. Nevermind (^____^)! I have Garageland in all the sauces, sweet and spicy (^____^), official, semi-official, and unofficial, and in all formats and also some covers ... I will copy the track on my computer and then make a 10-15 seconds sample to upload to Wikipedia when I have a spare moment. Best! –pjoef (talkcontribs) 20:11, 2 November 2011 (UTC)

Re: Garageland[edit]

I accept with great pleasure the "Back in the garage..." banner, which is now proudly displayed on top of my awards page. Thank you so very much! Of course, the credit is all yours. So....

I award The Guitarist Barnstar to Benzband for his great job on "Garageland" that has finally landed on the English Wikipedia main namespace. Thank you! –pjoef (talkcontribs) 18:45, 3 November 2011 (UTC)

Well done, I will keep an eye on it. "Have a drink on me... but go easy, step lightly, and STAY FREE!" –pjoef (talkcontribs) 09:16, 4 November 2011 (UTC)

This barnstar is also given to Benzband for wikifying 50 articles. Thanks for your work -- Nolelover Talk·Contribs 02:42, 9 November 2011 (UTC)


I have moved your userbox, Template:A punk, to User:Benzband/A punk. This is because you are its only user, and it is redundant to {{user punk rock}}, which is in template space. Please remember that userboxes should normally be created in userspace (unless they are neutral and likely to be widely used, in which case they should be created in template-space with a name like "Template:User ..."). — This, that, and the other (talk) 10:37, 12 November 2011 (UTC)

I got the message! Thanks for fixing my mistake :-) Benzband (talk) 15:44, 12 November 2011 (UTC)


You managed to create an edit conflict and put the very same reason as me on the redirect page using two messages. I am going to fix this. Even though, it was you who prevented me from doing it just at this second. Puffin Let's talk! 18:59, 16 November 2011 (UTC)

Sorry i didn't notice at the time… i just had a look at the page and saw you fixed it. Cheers ;) - Benzband (talk) 19:26, 16 November 2011 (UTC)

A thank-you[edit] Just a word of thanks. Your design is out of this world! Djathinkimacowboy 23:39, 16 November 2011 (UTC)

I hereby award you:[edit]

For obvious reasons and because it is well earned! Especially when it comes to helping articles AND helping others. Congrats! Djathinkimacowboy 05:30, 17 November 2011 (UTC)
You probably expected this: I come to thank you deeply for the assistance with the new barnstar proposal, and for the award. Either way, it is a pleasure and you did most of it. Thank you Benzband. Djathinkimacowboy 20:44, 17 November 2011 (UTC)

Smiley You're welcome! It's a pleasure. And congrats for your Anti-Vandal and NPP work ;) - Benzband (talk) 18:30, 20 November 2011 (UTC)


But those were redirect requests. None are notable enough for their own page but they might be searched for — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:06, 20 November 2011 (UTC)

What are you talking about? There may be some mistake here. Please check the history. - Benzband (talk) 20:12, 20 November 2011 (UTC)
That was a mistake on my part. I didn't realize that the long list of (86) red links was actually a list of redirect requests. I have accepted all of them. Alpha_Quadrant (talk) 21:53, 20 November 2011 (UTC)

re: A barnstar for you![edit]

I just want to ask... how does the awarding and barnstaring work around here... on my home-wiki it works a little bit differently so I do not know how to do it here :-D We have for each award a holder-list but somehow I do not know how to do it here... except the award-template on the user's talk page... like the several above :-P

Christmas' Motto 2011[edit]

We need your help. We would be grateful if you would take a few minutes to discuss the nomination for Christmas. The second version is much better, but it is necessary to reach a consensus before approving it.
Thanks and all the best for the upcoming Holiday season! –pjoef (talkcontribs) 09:13, 29 November 2011 (UTC)
