WELCOME!! Hello, Derek R Bullamore! I want to personally welcome you on behalf of the Wikipedia community. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. If you haven't already, you can put yourself in the new user log and the list of users so you can be properly introduced to everyone. Don't forget to be bold, and don't be afraid of hungry Wikipedians...there's a rule about not biting newcomers. Some other good links are the tutorial, how to edit a page, or if you're really stuck, see the help pages. Wikipedia is held up by Five Pillars...I recommend reading about them if you haven't already. Finally, it would be really helpful if you would sign your name on talk pages, so people can get back to you quickly. It's easy to do this by clicking the button (next to the one with the "W" crossed out) one from the end on the left. If that's confusing, or if you have any questions, feel free to drop me a at my talk page (by clicking the plus sign (+) next to the tab at the top that says "edit this page")...and again, welcome!--ViolinGirl 00:20, 18 December 2005 (UTC)

Justin Bieber[edit]

HELLO! I hope you don't completely reject this request or laugh in my face. But is it possible for Justin Bieber to be out under the category of Prince of Pop - here's why I think he deserves it

Every song off his debut EP, My World charted on the Billboard Hot 100.Youngest artist to have a #1 on the Billboard 200 albums for a debut album (My World 2.0), it then sold over 5 million copies. Nominated for 2 Grammys at the age of 16, one of the youngest artists to be nominated, and for his debut album. Youngest artist to be on the cover of the Rolling Stone magazine, which is quite an accomplishment. February 2011 his 3-D documentary 'Never Say Never' was released to theaters and was one of the most successful and highest grossing documentaries of all time. Under the Mistletoe, his Christmas album complete with several celebrity guest duets, e.g. Mariah Carey, one of the highest album selling artists of all time. For all the copies sold of this album he donated a large amount of the funds to the Make-A-Wish foundation. The album sold over 2 million copies. I'm 2012 he releases his 3rd studio album, Believe, it sold 374,000 copies in the first week and has sold over 5 million copies now. The lead single off the album, Boyfriend, sold over 500,000 copies in the first week of its release, which is the second highest first week sales for a single by a male artist. In 2013 he received the Diamond Award for his hit single 'Baby' being 12x Platinum Certified for sales and streams making it one, if not the most sold and streamed song of all time in the U.S. The music video for 'Baby' has over 1.1 billion views on YouTube and is the most viewed video of all time on VEVO. Throughout his career he has been nominated for 309 awards and has won 191. He was the youngest artist and the only artist to have 3 #1 albums before the age of 18, 5 #1 albums before the age of 19 and 6 #1 albums before the age of 20. He won the Champ Of Charity Award at the 2014 Young Hollywood Awards for being the most charitable artist of all time, (He donated $545,000 at the amFAR event towards an AIDS foundation. This isn't even half the success he has had in his career. When an artist/musician as young as he is does this, you can't deny it is complete success.

Absolutely marvellous... but, unsigned editor, your exact point in relation to Wikipedia is ?? - Derek R Bullamore (talk) 15:03, 16 May 2015 (UTC)

You might have a look here[edit]

…at a bloke in trouble… [1]. (talk) 04:08, 11 May 2015 (UTC)

Not really. I am happy to champion the underdog, and the inexperienced editor, but his actions are contrary to Wikipedia editing guidelines. Anyhow, why are you involving me ? Derek R Bullamore (talk) 15:03, 16 May 2015 (UTC)
How were they contrary? No need to answer, water under the bridge. Contacted you because of known history of fair-mindedness. Cheers. Le Prof (talk) 21:47, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

My reason for tagging[edit]

Hello Derek R Bullamore. I have re-tagged the article People reported to be born in the Kaaba because the refereces are still not satisfactorily edited. For more information please read the templates page[2]. The references have to either use parenthesis or numbering. On an article page we have to maintain a consistent referencing style. The introduction section contains a lot of references which fit neither system. If you correct these issues then please do remove the tag. Regards. Mbcap (talk) 20:41, 16 May 2015 (UTC)

Fair enough - I will leave the article to you (and others). - Derek R Bullamore (talk)

Fairfax Field[edit]

Recommend you check your dates the WASP were assigned against the date the entire WASP program was deactivated. Your dates may be off by a year or more. The NAA PLANT was not known by the 1944 plant code NC. it was known as NAA K OR KC AND THE b-25D were stencil ed as NA. moreover the plant was built for the B-29 program as evidenced by the High Bay. B-25 production was substitued when Renton was assign to the '29 program instead. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2600:1002:B007:ACE8:A379:60B2:3C97:E8C8 (talk) 01:53, 3 June 2015 (UTC)

I could do. However, your knowledge of the subject matter is clearly far greater than mine - hence, be bold ! - Derek R Bullamore (talk)

Vilde Frang[edit]

You tagged that BLP for lack of sources, but probably mean inline citations. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 20:29, 18 May 2015 (UTC)

Yeah - wrong tag applied ! I have changed it now. Cheers - Derek R Bullamore (talk) 20:31, 18 May 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. Like her playing! --Gerda Arendt (talk) 20:54, 18 May 2015 (UTC)

List of Hull Kingston Rovers players II[edit]

Hi Derek, I've found a reference for Hull KR's 1960s Yorkshire Cup finals, would you know the forenames of any of these mystery players; B. Hatch, K. Grice, and A. Lockwood from the 1962 Yorkshire Cup final, J. Moore, and F. Fox from the 1966 Yorkshire Cup final, and J. Moore (again) from the 1967 Yorkshire Cup final. Best Regards. DynamoDegsy (talk) 07:19, 4 June 2015 (UTC)

The only two names I can recall are John Moore (also commonly known as Johnny Moore), who played for HKR in the 1960s and early 1970s (430 appearances in total, according to the ickle book); and Frank Fox, who made considerably fewer outings. Colin Hutton was Rovers coach on both occasions. Otherwise, sorry - Derek R Bullamore (talk) 11:36, 4 June 2015 (UTC)
PS. You could try asking at the Fans Forum online at [3]. Never been on it myself, but you never know your luck ? - Derek R Bullamore (talk) 14:21, 4 June 2015 (UTC)

RfC: Jimi Hendrix and acid rock[edit]

Hi! Would you care to comment at this RfC? It is about the article Jimi Hendrix and whether "acid rock" warrants inclusion in the infobox. Dan56 (talk) 02:13, 8 June 2015 (UTC)

Not really, thanks. I find discussion about music genres rather counter productive. - Derek R Bullamore (talk) 13:33, 10 June 2015 (UTC)

Be advised the bot you use is misreporting the Japanese fonts links as 'dead links'[edit]

The kind ofお騒がせくノ一・望月千代女 --AggressiveNavel (talk) 16:54, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

Umm, interesting. Yet another double/triple check for me to try to make manually on such reference(s)/source(s).

The ACBs article[edit]

Thanks for helping edit my ACBs article. I am new at this and everyone has been very helpful. Why were the articles from The Pitch turned into dead links? Also, is the Village Voice family of magazines considered credible sources? They are in print form and they do go through the editorial process. ThanksDr. Lolzfather (talk) 19:15, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

I looked further into the dead links issue. Thanks.Dr. Lolzfather (talk) 19:31, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

If you are referring to The Village Voice, then there is no reason that I am aware of, as to why it is not deemed to be a reliable source. Regards,

Thanks mate[edit]

For checking in, and any work you want to do at the van der Waals equation article. Went to it, to be able to provide it as a reading, and found it completely unhelpful (because it is so fully unsourced, etc.). See the recent Talk entries if interested. For my part, after adding the history section (in order to have a proper place to put the Nobel citations), I am pulling back from this. Any comments here? Cheers. Le Prof (Leprof_7272) (talk) 20:49, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

Way, way, beyond my spheres of knowledge - whatever they might actually be. I merely tried to add dates to the tags on the article. I am also pulling out of that one !

Template names[edit]

In case you weren't aware, templates rarely need to be init-capped; for example, {{Reflist}} and {{reflist}} both work, so changing one to the other is unnecessary. Cheers! —ATinySliver/ATalkPage ✍ 23:10, 26 June 2015 (UTC)

Thank you. Purely habit on my part. No damage done though. - Derek R Bullamore (talk) 23:27, 26 June 2015 (UTC)
