Hello there![edit]

Got a question about my edits, or yours? Need PR or FAC suggestions? Go ahead, make a new section. I don't do GA reviews unless a review of something is offered in return; any others I do are solely my prerogative. You can see any nominations or discussions I have open at the bottom of this page.

What's been going on with me lately? I'm beginning to think I'm actually insane. That is only on the basis that I kind of want to stop editing Wikipedia, but I can't let it the f*ck go. Keeping at it and hoping for a different result is, after all, the definition of insanity. Come, spend a part of eternity here with me. Sooner or later I'm gonna go up 100 Wikipediholic points because I'll fail a class. dannymusiceditor oops 20:17, 26 April 2018 (UTC)

Edits to Definitely Maybe[edit]

Those sources are reliable, because they do in have interviews with people who worked on the album, including Anjuli Hutt, so you may have sent this to me by mistake. 203.221.15.210 (talk) 04:43, 8 February 2018 (UTC)

Hmm. They're definitely unconventional, but seem to carry some degree of credibility. My apologies. I was quite suspicious of the integrity of the guy who made it in the first place, as this isn't something you see on WP all the time. My apologies. dannymusiceditor Speak up! 04:49, 8 February 2018 (UTC)

Bring Me the Horizon[edit]

Hello:

The copy edit that you requested from the Guild of Copy Editors of the article Bring Me the Horizon has been completed.

I did find two issues that I wanted to draw to your attention.

In the ‘’Suicide Season’’ section the following appears:

"Bring Me the Horizon recorded their second studio album, Suicide Season, in Sweden with producer Fredrik Nordström. He was unimpressed with their first album and was initially absent from the recording sessions unless he needed to be there. Nordström later heard the new sound they were experimenting with during a recording session and became very involved in the record."

This could use further explanation, if possible. It sounds as though the record label assigned Nordström to produce the album, he had no interest in doing so and left them to do whatever they wanted. Then he heard something he liked. This needs some "fine tuning" because as it reads now it doesn’t quite make sense.

In the Image and legacy section: "Their third album (2010's There Is a Hell...) was seen as a significant turning point in altering public perception of the band."

You’ll see I’ve added a why? tag to this sentence because this also needs further explanation.

Good luck with the GAN when you get to it.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Regards,

Complete[edit]

(I hope this is not a "talk back" template, I don't know which one is it) I couldn't determine what the Bibliography subsection in the article means, if it is a general reference or if it is "further reading". Thinker78 (talk) 04:22, 17 February 2018 (UTC)

Request[edit]

Hi! I was wondering if you could review this new article I created and do some copyediting on it? I would really appreciate that.--◂ ‎épine talk 08:28, 22 February 2018 (UTC)

@Épine: I keep forgetting to reply to this. It looked of questionable notability when you first messaged me; it now looks like it definitely has enough, even if not a whole ton of it. Good job so far. Got any song recommendations? Always love hearing new hard rock. dannymusiceditor Speak up! 03:40, 5 March 2018 (UTC)

From Wild Fire? Definitely, check Villain and Not An Option from Revolt. Maybe check their other songs out as well, they're sick.--◂ ‎épine talk 09:47, 5 March 2018 (UTC)

GAR request[edit]

Hi Danny. I have been going through the old GA requests. I notice you have been doing a few for music articles. I don't know if any other editors go through these, but given the date on some of themI would guess not very often. You seem like and experienced and competent editor so thought I might try and convince you to do the reassessments yourself. I would recommend going the individual route as community ones can take forever. I have just across Bat Out of Hell III: The Monster Is Loose and Bat Out of Hell II: Back into Hell and agree with you on them being a it of a quote farm. They might be good ones to start with. I can help if needed. AIRcorn (talk) 00:15, 23 March 2018 (UTC)

America (Thirty Seconds to Mars album)[edit]

Hi. You stated in an edit summary that Google Play only gave the track title of "One Track Mind". Erm, I'm seeing all the track titles listed here: [1]. If that source did not show them, I would have removed them before that. Ss112 05:36, 23 March 2018 (UTC)

Devil Without a Cause[edit]

Although the sources refer to Bawitdaba as a nu metal song (hence why the article says "associated with" rather than saying it is a nu-metal album), the general consensus is that it is not a nu-metal album. Also, I called your edits vandalism because you repeatedly removed the category "hard rock albums by American artists". Now I am not going to report you to 3RR even though you violated it because I am exhausted since Wikipedia is just a hobby, so I am trying to appeal to you to understand why your edits are wrong rather than engage in edit-warring over something that is not reflected by the sources. The album is basically like Meat Loaf's Monster is Loose where the leading track is considered to be in a nu-metal style but the album as a whole is considered to be hard rock, based on the research I've done. Understood? TheRealBoognish (talk) 04:51, 18 April 2018 (UTC)

TheRealBoognish, your argument here isn't cutting the mustard here. 3RR is something I occasionally have trouble following, I have a bad habit of discussing in my edit summaries rather than elsewhere, so I guess you have me there, but I don't follow anything else. The song itself was not written to be "associated with" (though nu metal was mentioned around that point somehow); the album exactly was, however. You've fused different parts of the article together. The way it is currently written about the album with the reference provided does appear to be reflected in the sources. Don't just deny it because you don't like that information. Then again it does have only one strong reference so it may not be suitable for the infobox, but I say once again, infobox restraints do not apply to categories. I honestly didn't notice the "American artists" part, I'll fix that.
Also, your Meat Loaf example doesn't exactly hold enough water. You need more specifics - the article shown there says it was heavily influenced by John 5 (which I suppose is sometimes nu metal), but we need an outside source to say that clearly, not just you and "the research you've done". It does vaguely mention nu metal in that article, but not which parts of it are. Mind showing us that "research you've done"? If it's all your own, it's not allowed. I see you're trying to give me that implication that "The Monster is Loose" it nu metal, but we can't just assume that. You can hold that as your own personal opinion, but looking at that from a Wikipedian POV, we can't say what it is. You are not outside sourcing. I hope you understand - and I hope you didn't just TL;DR us on your talk page - that was meant to be taken quite seriously. dannymusiceditor oops 13:52, 18 April 2018 (UTC)

blink-182 list[edit]

@Yeepsi: I was going to take a blink-182 list to FL, but I saw it was delisted in the past. I am new to FLs and am not really sure what they are talking about, but the delisters were pretty confident it could never be a FL. Is that accurate? I will probably go through and get all the citations good and all that anyways, but it would be nice if I could FL it. Kees08 (Talk) 21:58, 19 April 2018 (UTC)

@Kees08: I would oppose any nomination submitted. The lead is far too short. The old version's lead is a good start, but given that it's dated, you'll need to do even better. Try their discography, or better yet, Evanescence's. I do think it can exist now; more award have been won and/or added to warrant keeping. dannymusiceditor oops 00:16, 20 April 2018 (UTC)
Sounds good, did not mean to imply to submit as-is, it needs work. Just as-worded, the delisting said it could never be one, so I wanted to see if it had a chance before I put a bunch of work into it. I will try it out either way! Kees08 (Talk) 01:28, 20 April 2018 (UTC)

Marilyn Manson[edit]

From MMFan96, As the "Error, edit not saved." message comes up on the glam rock chat, I'll say it here. Some references aren't visible due to small loading issues (I assume) on my tablet when I visual edit, so I'll try it on my PC when I get the chance. Also, as you said, we didn't add gothic metal due to very few albums or EPs holding it on their page, so we should also remove alternative metal tbh as the only one of those it holds in the genres is Portrait.

MarilynMansonFan96, to start, thank you for messaging me, but please put newest messages at the bottom of the page. Second, Do so by clicking the "new section" button at the top right, not the "edit" button. Third, good job indicating who sent this, but the best way to do this is by using four tildes (~'s) to create an automatic signature. Fourth, well, I don't know about that. We could deprioritize it, but it's heavily cited, and we don't want to add too many genres. You see, other editors, myself included, find gothic rock and gothic metal together in an infobox like Manson's to be superfluous, especially in an already crowded box. Fifth, you may have tried to add "blacklisted" links, which have been banned from use here because they are grossly unreliable. dannymusiceditor oops 12:44, 24 April 2018 (UTC)

Deprioritize it, maybe. MarilynMansonFan96 (talk) 00:10, 26 April 2018 (UTC)

Deprioritize what or which item? You're going to need to be more specific. I'm confused. dannymusiceditor oops 01:03, 26 April 2018 (UTC)

Alternative metal. Btw, how's this link in listing the band glam rock in the musical style section and getting glam rock to 3 links? http://somethingelsereviews.com/2015/01/29/marilyn-manson-mechanical-animals/ MarilynMansonFan96 (talk) 16:37, 5 May 2018 (UTC)

So, did you check the link? MarilynMansonFan96 (talk) 07:51, 17 May 2018 (UTC)

I've looked at it. I've not yet confirmed whther or not it is reliable, I have my doubts. dannymusiceditor oops 13:54, 17 May 2018 (UTC)

Takeoff (rapper)[edit]

When an article is redirected then recreated, the redirect shouldn't be restored per Wikipedia:Deletion by redirection and WP:BRD. If a deletion by redirection is disputed, an attempt should be made on the talk page to reach a consensus before restoring the redirect. Also, whether or not the charting song is his own work or a featured work is irrelevant on Wikipedia. A charting song is a charting song and it is also credited to the featured artist. Please attempt to discuss next time before restoring redirects that are obviously disputed. KingAndGod 06:04, 27 April 2018 (UTC)

Tell that to every single other editor who took the same action. I'm not alone. And yes, how he charted does matter. I'm on mobile now so I can't give a very detailed explanation, but we're not through here. dannymusiceditor oops 14:16, 27 April 2018 (UTC)

The dead link you referenced wasn't related to my latest change (Ivan Moody's birthday). I'm going to remove it and revert back to my changes.

Are you kidding?[edit]

One reference to "it's going to be released" with tour dates, helps the album meet WP:NALBUM. You're at three reverts (as am I). So perhaps a discussion is in order. Walter Görlitz (talk) 01:12, 23 May 2018 (UTC)

It's not there yet. I'm working on it. Jeez, give it a bit. There are surely sources now that the article's been out 3 months. What's there now is irrelevant to what's about to be. If I find nothing, I will revert my actions. dannymusiceditor oops 01:14, 23 May 2018 (UTC)

I Am Human (album)[edit]

Hi. I came across I Am Human (album) as I looked at pages for WP:NPP. I have reverted back to the redirect as there doesn't seem to be a clear establishing of notability that the guidelines require. I see from this page that you're an experienced editor, and have gone through the GA process so I am not doubting that this album is notable but simply ask you include citations to that effect when (re)making the article. If you wish to talk further please ping me here or leave a message on my talk page. Best, Barkeep49 (talk) 01:23, 23 May 2018 (UTC)

I see our messages crossed paths. For ease let's continue the conversation here. Of course it's fair to say you're working on a page. However, owing to the age ofthe article if you make the page go live it is automatically indexed by Google. Rather than incrementally editing the album page, I'd encourage you to do so via sandbox and then bring it over, notability citations in tact, live. I would ask that you take not I'm the second NPP patroller to make a similar sort of request of you today. I don't doubt your area knowledge or Wikipedia knowledge - I'm just asking that you cross the notability threshold early in your authoring process. Best, Barkeep49 (talk) 01:27, 23 May 2018 (UTC)
If you insist. Your point is good, but I always thought it inconvenient to do that....my sandbox is full of all sorts of junk from different articles, some not even English language, LOL. dannymusiceditor oops 01:30, 23 May 2018 (UTC)

Re: Date formats[edit]

Hi Danny, see this part of the Manual of Style that says: "Articles on topics with strong ties to a particular English-speaking country should generally use the date format most commonly used in that nation." The key phrase there is "English-speaking country" None of the mainland European nations are English-speaking countries (i.e. they don't have English as an official language), so editors can use whichever date format they like when writing articles related to these places. Changing the date format willy-nilly is not on, however, and the initial date format is generally retained. Graham87 14:36, 31 May 2018 (UTC)

But doesn't that create problems with consistency? I would think that all albums relating to one artist (i.e. Opeth) should all be the same? dannymusiceditor oops 14:49, 31 May 2018 (UTC)
Nope. There's nothing in the guidelines that says that all articles of a certain type that has nothing to do with a particular English-speaking country should have the same date format. Graham87 07:05, 1 June 2018 (UTC)

Fightstar genre's[edit]

Hi there my name is Adam I'm not a signed up member of Wikipedia yet and I'm trying to add genre's to Fightstar's repertoire because as a major fan of theirs for many years now I feel as though it is worth pointing out that they're so much more then merely a Post-hardcore or Emo band which so many of Wikipedia's links would lead people to believe. They're above all an Alternative Rock and experimental rock band because they constantly evolve and try out new territories and on occasions have even taken progressive elements and added them to their sound. Yes there's no denying that Post-hardcore and an alternative variant of Metal are their most commonly associated genre's but to not include their eclectic range of other genre's which exhibits their versatility does them a great disservice, at least if you ask me. Perhaps you should actually try listening to all of their material front to back over the last 13 years of their career before assuming I don't know what I'm talking about and need some kind of reliable source of justification before you can approve the edits I've been making, if you want a source all you need to do is listen to them for yourself. If you don't think tracks like Follow Me Into The Darkness or The Whisperer warrant more then just being pigeonholed as Post-hardcore or worse still Emo then I really cannot help you!

Kind Regards - Adam — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2.219.115.63 (talk) 14:48, 5 June 2018 (UTC)

2.219.115.63 I've told you twice to stop. What you are doing is not acceptable behavior. Your point of view must be kept neutral and you must rely on sources outside what you think. By editing these genres arbitrarily and using the mentality of "if you want a source all you need to do is listen to them for yourself", you are doing the exact opposite. Please stop.
Also, you see that green marker at the top right of the page? That means it's ranked a quality article or "good article". I was responsible for that. I re-wrote almost the whole article about a year and a half ago now. I looked for sources on this shit. Unfortunately, the media are the ones who have done them a disservice and I can't help that. Besides, I agree with everything listed there now except emo, but I was requested to add it in based on other sources provided by another editor.
You need to look deeper into the article and see where I've cited these genres. It is in the style and influences section. The infobox is not meant to be a tell-all on their entire style.
Now, if you find me more sources, by all means let me know and I'll add them in should they be reliable. Also, I've listened to every last scrap of their material. I agree with the genres you add, but I can't let them stay. I have to keep Wikipedia clean. dannymusiceditor oops 14:59, 5 June 2018 (UTC)

I saw what you said. And I said the citations you've given aren't good enough. You're insane to think that album's death metal, and it's probably not thrash. That's why those are probably the only existent refs with any coverage at all on them, even if it is poor. A single riff for one song does not make it death, and a few songs which showcased thrash is not enough to call the entire thing thrash. dannymusiceditor oops 04:27, 27 June 2018 (UTC)

Cheap Thrills (song)[edit]

Another stupid rollbacker misleading reverted with saying "unsourced/undiscussed genre change", but actually, In difference between revisions, the IP added with reference which saying "Caribbean-tinged dancehall banger" in Background and composition section (Line 36, right), and left diff is Much.com article is featured "guest contributor" as a writer (older version as "Brianne James", did not find evidence of editorial oversight or writer credentials for high level sources (e.g. The New York Times)).

p.s. You are encouraged although unusual any pop song article. 183.171.122.236 (talk) 18:19, 12 July 2018 (UTC)

@183.171.122.236: Why are you dragging me into this? I didn't have anything to do with it. Also, I'm sure they would be fine with the content you added, but being that you replaced already approved content, it will most often be met with a revert. That which was already there was also good. dannymusiceditor oops 19:34, 12 July 2018 (UTC)

Your GA nomination of Monster (R.E.M. album)[edit]

The article Monster (R.E.M. album) you nominated as a good article has passed Symbol support vote.svg; see Talk:Monster (R.E.M. album) for comments about the article. Well done! If the article has not already been on the main page as an "In the news" or "Did you know" item, you can nominate it to appear in Did you know.

Only a short follow-up. I've been considering looking at the GA for Chimes of Freedom (song) and starting to move it towards a FA nomination. Any possible interest in joining in on the editing? JohnWickTwo (talk) 00:33, 16 July 2018 (UTC)
Oh boy, a Dylan song? I can try, but can't guarantee I'll be a ton of help - they may scrutinize the work we do on a legend like him further than the typical music article we do, given Dylan's stature in the music world. I don't know a whole lot about him, but I can help fix anything involving writing it. I've watchlisted it. Let me know when you nominate it. dannymusiceditor oops 03:38, 16 July 2018 (UTC)
There's no rush on this. I'm attracted to the article because of the high quality covers done in recent times by Springsteen, Sting, Youssou N'Dour, U2, and Tracey Chapman. During the next week or two, I'll try to read some of the recent Dylan biographies that came out for the interpretation and reception sections. If you have any good ideas for improving the general outline of the article then jump in with some comments if its interesting. JohnWickTwo (talk) 13:14, 16 July 2018 (UTC)

I interpret your edit as calling me a liar[edit]

https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=As_I_Lay_Dying_(band)&diff=850926490&oldid=850696375 I believe that you went and looked but clearly missed the note for ever entry that discusses the content as "Separate multiple entries by using commas, {{Flatlist}}, or {{Hlist}}." That note reads "For short horizontal lists of two or three items, comma separators are acceptable, but for longer lists the use of {{Flatlist}} or {{Hlist}} is preferred as they offer a benefit to users of screen readers." I helped craft the documentation so I'm not mistaken. They wanted to enforce lists but they look terrible and so I strongly objected and the note was added for those who agreed with me on this matter. Lists are not required until there are more than three items. Walter Görlitz (talk) 22:29, 18 July 2018 (UTC)

And for Woven war. I was less gracious in reverting that one. Walter Görlitz (talk) 22:31, 18 July 2018 (UTC)
@Walter Görlitz: I don't see how that is at ALL possible and I'm confused at how many people agree with you.
I'm didn't use the word "liar", you can't assume that if I never say that. Using that word on someone, that is WP:BADFAITH. Yes, I egregiously missed it. My apologies. I went and looked at WP:HLIST and WP:FLATLIST and saw nothing on them except for implications. Where is this said documentation? I'm still not finding it. For the record, I hate that decision, and would have supported list enforcement. They make the infobox look more professional and there isn't a single downside I can think of to it, except for these rules conflicting with two different parameters using different listing methods (which makes absolutely no sense). But really, that should be discussed elsewhere. dannymusiceditor oops 01:35, 19 July 2018 (UTC)
I didn't write that you used the word, I wrote that what I interpreted from what you wrote. Documentation for the {{Infobox musical artist}} is at template:Infobox musical artist. I see the confusion now. You were looking at the documentation for the lists. Walter Görlitz (talk) 01:49, 19 July 2018 (UTC)
This is a good revert, restoring commas for lists with two or three entries. It's in the infobox instructions. Binksternet (talk) 06:21, 19 July 2018 (UTC)
Can you please direct me to where I can fin this past discussion so I can take arguments into account before I make another proposal? Also, how old is this discussion? dannymusiceditor oops 13:44, 19 July 2018 (UTC)
