Some observations[edit]

Hello. You seem to do some editing like me... just random things on wiki but please look out for "bare" citations. You can see these in the References section just as a plain links. I think I came across some done by you.. and there is an easy way to do citations. It's in the Help:Edit_toolbar. Click "Cite", and if it's a website then click, "Cite web". Paste the link in the URL spot and then click the magnifying glass. it will fill the details for you.

Also, if you come across pages with this, there's a tool I use: Reflinks where you just copy and paste the wiki article link in it and click Go. It will do it all for you.. but of course if you are citing an article, the above method is preferred.

Brush on and/or bookmark the MOS:ALBUM album style guide to get a better feel for what order the subheaders should go in.. I am finding a lot of articles that are in weird orders [not your doing, I'm just saying be on the look out so you can fix a bunch of things at once]

This message is not meant to be taken accusatory or rudely by any means. I am just trying to be helpful and for all I know, you could already know how to do all this. if so, then disregard

Thanks and please use the ping function so I get a notification of your reply. --Jennica talk / contribs 14:06, 22 November 2016 (UTC)


I really like how you fixed up the musical style section on Panic! at the Disco. I've been wanting to get rid of all those ridiculous genres listed for each album, but never knew how to replace/tweak it because it looked like such a major part in that section. Thanks. Sekyaw (talk) 04:58, 15 March 2017 (UTC)

Thank you. I know those genres were driving me nuts. They were different than the infobox and I fixed the genres so the article supported the infobox. Bowling is life (talk) 11:48, 15 March 2017 (UTC)

For excellent work on Awolnation. Cheers! bd2412 T 22:08, 26 March 2017 (UTC)


Thank you for that watch. Mudvayne articles are among the most irritating thing I've ever had to deal with on Wikipedia. (DannyMusicEditor from an IP) (talk) 21:12, 11 September 2017 (UTC)

My Chemical Romance[edit]

Why did you remove my edit from My Chemical Romance? I'm not trying to add it back, I just wanted to know what you disagreed with. Thanks. SuperLuigi22 (talk) 00:58, 5 November 2017 (UTC)

Good Charlotte[edit]

Can you make it so the timeline includes The Madden Brothers (including touring members & session musicians) and Good Charlotte also has the touring and session musicians on timeline.

Thanks, WikiEditsAnnon WikiEditsAnnon (talk) 19:48, 11 November 2017 (UTC)

Only offical members go on the timeline. Bowling is life (talk) 20:58, 11 November 2017 (UTC)

New Found Glory[edit]

Why did you remove my edit saying that the band is best known for "My FrI ends Over You". It's their only song to reach the US Billboard or reach 10 million views on YouTube. WikiEditsAnnon (talk) 14:33, 25 November 2017 (UTC)

Your edit to RATM's "The Battle of Los Angeles"[edit]

I started a discussion on the Talk page for The Battle of Los Angeles (album)Talk:The Battle of Los Angeles (album)#Rap metal vs. Rock - "This edit changed the genre in the lede (lead paragraph) from rap metal to rock.

In Bloom Neck Deep[edit]

I just wanted to thank you loads for helping on the In Bloom song so that it wouldn't be deleted - I had no idea how to fix it.

BTW TØP's Tear in my heart was there because I copied that info to try to get it like that on In Bloom but it failed. WikiEditsAnnon2 (talk) 23:08, 5 January 2018 (UTC)

In Bloom Neck Deep sources[edit]

I don't know if it's useful, but I found a source mentioning about In Bloom having frequent radio play. If that helps. But not found much about charts for it. Or any of neck deep's singles. I will look for that source tho WikiEditsAnnon2 (talk) 23:20, 5 January 2018 (UTC)

I used own musical ability to get the chord progression for In Bloom. Cause most reviews won't detail chord progressions. — Preceding unsigned comment added by WikiEditsAnnon2 (talkcontribs) 00:12, 6 January 2018 (UTC)

@WikiEditsAnnon2: Using your own musical ability falls under the category of original research. —C.Fred (talk) 00:15, 6 January 2018 (UTC)


Hey you know on Paramore wouldnt the explation of Hayley being the only constant member (since formation) need "- since it's interception" as otherwise she hasn't been the only constant member; Taylor York joined in 2007 but never left the band. So would he be a constant member too? WikiEditsAnnon2 (talk) 07:22, 16 January 2018 (UTC)

Genre edit on Bennington[edit]

Please do not add content to an article that is unsourced. Genres, like anything require sources. I'm sure you are familiar with WP:OR and WP:RS. To top it off, per WP:SUBJECTIVE, "Wikipedia articles about art and other creative topics (e.g., musicians, actors, books, etc.) have a tendency to become effusive. This is out of place in an encyclopedia. Aesthetic opinions are diverse and subjective—we might not all agree about who the world's greatest soprano is. However, it is appropriate to note how an artist or a work has been received by prominent experts and the general public. For instance, the article on Shakespeare should note that he is widely considered to be one of the greatest authors in the English language. Articles should provide an overview of the common interpretations of a creative work, preferably with citations to experts holding that interpretation. Verifiable public and scholarly critiques provide useful context for works of art.". In other words, things like genre, which are artistic interpretations on work, require a source. Those genres are not sourced in the prose, so they were removed. Any further thoughts on this are welcome, but maybe let's stick them to the page on the singer. Andrzejbanas (talk) 17:37, 18 January 2018 (UTC)

@Andrzejbanas: Yes I am aware of WP:OR and WP:RS. That edit was a mistake and I shouldn't have recklessly reverted your edit. I'm going to find sources for those genres since they are prominent genres in his career. Bowling is life (talk) 17:49, 18 January 2018 (UTC)

Fall Out Boy[edit]

There's a f#$%ing award for this? dannymusiceditor Speak up! 00:47, 1 February 2018 (UTC)

@DannyMusicEditor: I guess so. Why? And which one are you talking about? Bowling is life (talk) 00:55, 1 February 2018 (UTC)
People are getting awards for using Twitter? That's the joke of the week. Wow. dannymusiceditor Speak up! 00:57, 1 February 2018 (UTC)
Yeah it's stupid but it's an award. Bowling is life (talk) 00:59, 1 February 2018 (UTC)

Revival (Eminem album)[edit]

The alt text is useful for visually impaired people. I agree with what you did with 'pop'. HARSH RATHOD (talk) 03:22, 7 February 2018 (UTC)

Imagine Dragons[edit]

Don't revert. Go post on the talk page or the Music Wikiproject and see if you can get someone to have a look at the sources you signaled as defective or partial. Good luck. Drmies (talk) 01:22, 8 February 2018 (UTC)

@Drmies: I know about the edit revert rule but none of the sources explicitly support the genre that the user is adding. I'm going to start a discussion on the talk page so the edit war doesn't continue, its gone on long enough. Bowling is life (talk) 01:27, 8 February 2018 (UTC)
Right--edit warring is edit warring even if you're right. Thanks, Drmies (talk) 01:29, 8 February 2018 (UTC)

Twenty One Pilots[edit]

I don't know how to add album covers. :( Every time I upload to Wikimedia Commons, they're removed. The article "Ode to Sleep" needs one, so if you'd be so kind as to add the cover, that'd be great. Or at least lemme know how. It can be found here.-- AlexanderHovanec (talk) 20:57, 11 February 2018 (UTC)

@AlexanderHovanec: I would love to help but I don't know how do that either. I wish I knew how to do it but I don't know where I can learn how to do it. Bowling is life (talk) 21:00, 11 February 2018 (UTC)
Alright, that's perfectly fine. It's strange, I've been asking around and no one seems to know how to do so. Hopefully someone can get around to doing it eventually. -- AlexanderHovanec (talk) 21:03, 11 February 2018 (UTC)

February 2018[edit]

Information icon Thanks for contributing to the article Outsider (Three Days Grace album) . However, one of Wikipedia's core policies is that contributions must be verifiable, by being clearly attributed to reliable sources, preferably using inline citations. Please help by adding more sources to the article you edited, and/or by clarifying how the sources already given support the claims (see here for how to do inline referencing). Thanks! P.S. If you need any help, you can look at Help:Contents/Editing Wikipedia or ask at Wikipedia:New contributors' help page, or just ask me. Thank you. --Jax 0677 (talk) 15:20, 26 February 2018 (UTC)

@Jax 0677: Thank you. I'm fully aware of Wikipedia's policies. I just made some format fixes to the page and I was planning on adding sources to the article (I did not create the article). I just didn't have the time to add sources to the article at the moment. Bowling is life (talk) 17:19, 26 February 2018 (UTC)

Billy Herrington[edit]

Are you certain about the source that cites his death? FunksBrother (talk) 19:59, 3 March 2018 (UTC)

@FunksBrother: Yes but the more I look at the source, the more it seems like it is not the best source. But it looks like, sadly, that he did die today. If you search his name you'll see alot of people mourning his loss on Twitter, even his mom confirmed it. And yes I know Twitter isn't a reliable source but if that many people are mouring his death, than it must have actually happened. If the source that I added isn't relaible than I'll search for another one. Bowling is life (talk) 20:07, 3 March 2018 (UTC)
@Bowling is life: The link was discussed in the article’s talk page and one of the users disagreed that the source is verified. I want to make sure it’s correct before there’s a news article that everyone fell for a death hoax. FunksBrother (talk) 20:27, 3 March 2018 (UTC)

Van Morrison, U2 and Jon Gibson via lists articles...[edit]

Hello, I have a question. In the spirit of being fair and following all Wikipedia policies, as with Twenty One Pilots, do you believe it's appropriate to keep Van Morrison (with a Rolling Stone source that doesn't confirm he is doing Christian rock because he doesn't nor does he even consider himself a Christian which is moot) and U2 on the List of Christian rock bands? These are secular musicians. My argument is as with adding Jon Gibson on the List of Christian hip hop artists to prove a point (someone who did rap in the past so the years he was active in hip hop could be added behind his name as is done on other list articles), I was told adding "citation required" after his name is not allowed and he had to be removed from the list yet that was accepted on the 'list of Christian rock bands' (there wasn't a consensus to keep Gibson yet there is a consensus to remove U2 on the 'list of Christian rock bands' but U2 and VM's name remains on the list with weak sources). This makes no sense and seems to be deliberate. Being prejudice that i'm using an IP instead of an account is why their judgment is clouded in my opinion. Others aren't warned for edit warring so I thought i'd bring some new eyes/minds into the matter to avoid conflict. Would you be so kind as to read the talk pages for 'list of Christian rock bands' and 'list of Christian hip hop artists' please? For that matter, Dolly Parton isn't a Christian country singer (even if she's Christian or sang gospel-related songs in the past) yet was added on the list for that as well. I just want to point out their discrepancies/hypocrisy without me getting involved again since the back-and-forth with only one editor is useless. I give up on defending myself and I don't want to add to the pre-existing disruptions/violations/vandalism of others. There are so many issues with those articles that i'm just wanting/trying to fix. Thank you for your time/input/assistance! 2600:1702:1690:E10:3518:CD9E:7602:BC52 (talk) 09:17, 17 April 2018 (UTC)

May 2018[edit]

Information icon Please refrain from changing genres, as you did to Gwen Stefani, without providing a source or establishing a consensus on the article's talk page first. Genre changes to suit your own point of view are considered disruptive. I see you have been advised several times about these kind of edits and reverts. Again, please refrain from reverting WP guideline-based edits without discussing the changes you disagree with. The WP:ONUS is on you to seek consensus for inclusion of disputed content. Lapadite (talk) 20:41, 3 May 2018 (UTC)

DGD dispute[edit]

I'm not gonna fight anymore. You seem to have a really rough grasp on post-hardcore based on the bands you said were post-hardcore on the DGD talk page. I've been listening to this genre for literally almost as long as you've been alive (fifteen years), but whatever. I'm done. We'll agree to disagree. Have a good night. Cblake92 (talk) 03:32, 15 May 2018 (UTC)

Associated acts[edit]

Didn't Kanye West worked with The Weeknd 2 times? Tell your friends & FML? So, why can't I write his name here? Kushal2004 (talk) 04:45, 11 June 2018 (UTC)

@Kushal2004: You might be right. I think you can add his name there. Bowling is life (talk) 05:22, 11 June 2018 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Thank you. You could've thought about it. Without thinking, you cleared it. Kushal2004 (talk) 07:27, 11 June 2018 (UTC)

Rush and Light Metal[edit]

It isn’t a commonly used term, but it is a sourced genre. Plus, all you need to add or delete a genre is a reliable source, wich I’m also providing. Sixty Minute Limit (talk) 22:00, 14 June 2018 (UTC)


What do ya mean kiddo? I just put the genre there. No need to get uppity about it. Max of government land (talk) 21:30, 22 June 2018 (UTC)

List styles[edit]

May I ask the what the point is of going into articles and switching list styles from hlist to flatlist as you did here? Since the rendered text looks the same, it seems like the kind of thing you would leave to the regular editors of that page. Am I missing something? --Spike Wilbury (talk) 18:01, 1 July 2018 (UTC)

Second request for a response here. You are required to discuss your edits with the community when asked, as this is a collaborative environment. I've observed you making seemingly pointless changes to infobox parameters that have no effect on the rendered display, and I'd like to know why. --Spike Wilbury (talk) 23:34, 3 July 2018 (UTC)
Sorry for not responding earlier. Honestly, I don't know why I made pointless changes to infobox parameters. I'll stop doing it. Bowling is life (talk) 03:36, 4 July 2018 (UTC)

My apologies[edit]

I thought you were the other editor who keeps undoing all my edits. I'm confused though, if you thanked me for my edits then why did you undo my edit? VanWinkle92 (talk) 19:46, 17 July 2018 (UTC)

@VanWinkle92: I edit on mobile and I have to press the desktop button so I can undo an edit and the desktop button is close to the thank button. Because of this, I sometimes accidentally hit the thank you button. It happens a lot and it makes it awkward to undo an edit. Bowling is life (talk)

Change photos[edit]

Hi! have seen you often give precious contributiions to update the Wikipedia page of Ronnie Radke that I also follow. As there is an old Photo of 2015 do you know how might I change It with a newer One? Thanks a lot for your attention. Nazaria 73 (talk) 09:10, 18 July 2018 (UTC)


Bowling is life, do you have a Twinkle to use revert vandalism? FedericoPaoloBassani 13:23, 4 August 2018 (UTC)

August 2018[edit]

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at Angelic 2 the Core shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you are reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not edit-war. See BRD for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly. ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 05:06, 6 August 2018 (UTC)

@Oshwah: I know, that is why I started a discussion on the talk page. I know I should have started the discussion earlier instead of reverting. Bowling is life (talk) 05:10, 6 August 2018 (UTC)
Cool deal; thanks for doing that. I left the same warning on both your user talk page and the other user's talk page so that I'm fair and treat everyone equally. Just don't make any more reverts to the article and you'll be okay. Cheers - ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 05:17, 6 August 2018 (UTC)

About Ghost[edit]

About Ghost, where's the source stating that they are pop rock? There's like no citation next to it and that makes it look more like someone put in some false info. I'm just wondering because it just seems a little sketchy to me.

@ The sources for the genres are in the Musical style and influences section of the article for Ghost. You will see that pop rock is supported by three sources. Bowling is life (talk) 15:15, 25 August 2018 (UTC)
