There are loads of examples of bands who don't meet every requirement that have full articles on Wikipedia. Does the band's internet popularity have to do with it's following on the streets? This is an article I feel should stay on. Is there anything that can be done to keep it on?

Takenforaride77 (talk) 02:39, 4 January 2008 (UTC)


I thought Wikipedia was about collective knowledge? Why would an administrator know what’s more important then than the general public - especially in terms of music or art? Do you already have to be an authority to be read about? Who decides?

Hmmm, just read through some of your responses. Realise why you need to stop the people just making wrong stuff up or adding wrong stuff for fun - but there are really real little known bands, artists, and creative people who should be able to have a page because it's true, interesting and relevant.

I would say that they singlehandedly rebirthed the punk scene in the Lehigh Valley, but really things like that don't get listed on what is considered to be a verifiable source, besides like kids commenting about it or whatever on message boards (obviously not what you would consider verifiable). I guess they're too underground for even the internet haha. But they are valid, and there was never an emphasis on recording it seemed, so it's gonna take some time to prove that, and according to those rules, it seems they will never be fit for Wikipedia, because their music provides intentions of going against big things, such as major labels or being nominated for music awards etc, which is what that list is comprised of. And there's nothing to verify representation for a scene...Any thoughts?

Takenforaride77 (talk) 02:54, 4 January 2008 (UTC)


Haha, it's different tho. It's something the people can change, which IS what they seem to stand for. It doesn't matter. I thought that if people wanted to learn about them, they could do so, but I guess not. We'll see what happens. Thanks for your time and wit, haha.

That 90's Show

Please do not remove {{fact}} tags as you did to this episode, without adding a reliable source. It maybe obvious to you, but not to others, such as myself. I have no idea what that painting is. Ctjf83talk 03:13, 29 January 2008 (UTC)

Please, with your 50,000+ edits you should know that a picture on another article is hardly a reliable reference. Ctjf83talk 03:56, 29 January 2008 (UTC)
Exactly, it needs a source that explicably states the connection. We have decided that it is probably true so we left it, but it still needs a reliable source.--The Dominator (talk) 04:12, 29 January 2008 (UTC)

Hollywood North

Greetings & salutations. There is an article here on wikipedia Hollywood North in which there seems to be a disagreement with me and another person who appears to me has taken ownership of that article. I added a link there in the "See also" section of List of films shot in Hamilton, Ontario and the person in question kept removing. At first no reason was given for the removal of the link I added to it by the party in question. Please have a look at the discussion we had there regarding the issue and give me your opinion it please. The link to that discussion page is over here: Talk:Hollywood North Thanks. Greatly appreciated. Have a good day. Nhl4hamilton (talk) 11:42, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

Disco Spinster


i have a few things to clarify and discuss with you. firstly an apology. in my first adress, i did not mean to infer that as a past memebr of the college community, i have any more right to decide what goes on this page. However, as a general editior, i have just as much right as you to edit this page. you mentioned consensus. my self and others have made simmilar additions to the page regarding the list. yet, you and others are continualy threatening with action

you spoke of guidelines by consensus. not to rehash old quarrlels, however on WP:SCH#WNTI the last line of the intro sates Note that these are only recommendations, and editors are not obliged to follow them. they are recomoendations. not laws. hence lists of students CAN BE INCLUDED.

i do not intend on engaging in an edit war. if it seems so that i am, than both yourself and loopla should also be banned, because loopla (and with ure supoort recently) initiated the edits. i have maintained this site for nearly 6 months now. it has become what it is on the most due to my input. including the list of cptns. it was loopla who choose to undo my reviosin, to which i redid it. if i am guilty, then so are the both of you. and before you start throwing any more right back at me, i am not suggesting that i own the page, merely that i was here first, and the both of you began this war

Please do not repeatedly revert edits, but use the talk page to work towards wording and content that gains a consensus among editors. that was a line you wrote on my talk page. i feel that you (and loopla) dont want this discussed. you both want your way, and i am being told to deal with it. conversations regarding this originated as discussion, however, recenty, i have been threatened with blocking. my views are not being heard. again, i have seen all the medals and praise on your page, but as you said, noone has any more right on this site than any other.

i wish to work towards a resolution, at the same time, i am not intending on backing down. i have continusiously justifies the inclusion of the lists anf have refuted any fight that has been put foward. not one wiki law has been put foward to me that overtly oposes my additions.

Edit warring

Hi Discospinster, I noticed that you reverted one of the edits by Zebra91 on the Patrician Brothers' College, Fairfield. Unfortunately this user has continued to revert the removal of inappropriate info by several users from this article, and as I can see from the message above he does not plan on listening to the opinions of others. Its all a bit out of hand now and im not really sure what to do about it without breaking the WP:3RR (which I don't plan on doing). What should be done to resolve this? I appreciate your time! Cheers. Loopla (talk) 05:40, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

Thanks! I can't believe such a rediculous issue has gone on this long. I've given up trying to discuss it because I get accused of being a 'bully' and so it goes nowhere, and im reluctant to revert because I don't want to engage in a 'war'. Hopefully now that there have been a couple more opinions it will stop. Thanks for keeping an eye on it! Cheers. Loopla (talk) 00:21, 11 February 2008 (UTC)


Hey, ive made a suggestion on the talk page of Partician Brothers as to a way forward, to help satisfy both sides. Please have a look and just write what you think. Twenty Years 08:20, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

I saw you've been editing the EVHS article. I wanted to bring a few things to your attention. The user evhs00 has basically been copying the Los Alamos High School article. (see for yourself). Problem is that he's copied a great deal of stuff that does not apply to EVHS. For instance he makes a serious of false, baseless and dubious claims:

  • EVHS was one of Newsweek's 2007 "1,000 Best High Schools in America" (#598). This was baselessly copied from the LAHS article and is just false when applied to EVHS:

  • EVHS is "mostly middle class". A dubious claim considering espanola is one of the poorer cities in one of the poorest states and has 21% of its population living beneath the poverty level:

  • Many other claims are suspect, uncited, and bear a clear similarity to claims on the LAHS article.


  • The image of the sundevil mascot was taken from the Arizona State University article and is not fair use.
  • The image of the basketball team was taken from the EVHS Athletics website and is not fair use.

Basically there's no citations anywhere and the author's methodology is clearly one of blatant copying. I really want to avoid an edit-war between rival high school articles so I'm not going to touch the EVHS article. I'm actually really glad that somebody is working on the EVHS page. But the author needs to learn how to work within the rules.

Warning vandals

Information.svg Hello. Regarding the recent revert you made to Kwame Brown: You may already know about them, but you might find Wikipedia:Template messages/User talk namespace useful. After a revert, these can be placed on the user's talk page to let them know you considered their edit was inappropriate, and also direct new users towards the sandbox. They can also be used to give a stern warning to a vandal when they've been previously warned. Thank you. Enigma msg! 03:18, 22 February 2008 (UTC)

Innate behaviour

I see you have a history of working on the article Innate behaviour. I am looking at it from the project Wikipedia:Unreferenced articles where it is one of the longest {{unreferenced}} tagged articles that does not meet at least the barest minimum of verifiability. It has been tagged and completely without references since June 2006. It would be extremely helpful if you had some references you could add to the article to help support its verifiability and notability. Thanks for any help you can give. BirgitteSB 21:46, 28 February 2008 (UTC)

I wish you hadn't removed the [citation needed] tags from the EVHS article because you're helping set a precedent that citations aren't needed. I think the [citation needed] tags should remain because it lets people know where citations are desired before they remove the sources masthead. --Greg Comlish (talk) 15:35, 29 February 2008 (UTC)

Disco, it was my pleasure. I've seen you around and already had clocked you as sound, sane and smart. What I further saw from browsing through the stuff for candidature nailed it. RfA is something I have only recently been browsing - its a great way to pick up on tools and procedures I reckon - and I was delighted to have a rare unconditionally positive view on a candidate (I have decided views on certain issues with rfa, such as age and certain behavioural conditions but was still shocked to see the way camps can form over seemingly everything!) Anyway, that's just by way of trying to say congrats and all - and if I ever need quickie help and/or an opinion, I'd know where I'd like to come and get sorted.

Blocked user

Hi there. I noticed that you have temporarily blocked User talk: from editing on wikipedia. This ip address belongs to User talk:Turemetalfan, an individual who has been temporarily blocked before. Both talk page currently feature the same entry ("PEOPLE ON THIS SITE SUCK") but real evidence that it is the one and the same individual can be found on my talk page where a conversation with myself was initiated by one and continued by the other ("I did not say ..."). I do not know whether there's any significance or relevance to this but I thought I should just let you know since you left a block notice on one talk page but not the other. --Bardin (talk) 08:03, 15 March 2008 (UTC)

I blocked the IP because there was vandalism after the final warning, but I didn't see any final warning on User talk:Turemetalfan's talk page. I'm sure they're probably the same person as you say. I'll keep an eye on the other account's contributions just to be sure, but s/he has claimed that s/he doesn't want anything to do with Wikipedia, so maybe we won't have to worry about it. ... discospinster talk 18:52, 15 March 2008 (UTC)
The person has made the same claim before without ever following through. The person has just made three reverts to the List of gothic metal bands. I'm not about to make a third revert myself because I do not want to get blocked by any administrator. This is not the first time that the person has made three reverts to the same list. A temporary block was made on the user on 7 February 2008 as evident on the user talk page for reverting the same list three times. Incidentally, there's more evidence that the IP address and user name belongs to the same person as seen from the contributions made on the IP address, including such edits as this one on the talk page for the user name. I'm relatively new to wikipedia and while I'm familiar with the general rules and policies of this site, I'm not certain about the administrative procedure regarding disruptive individuals like this. --Bardin (talk) 02:45, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

Deletion of article Daniel Boey


I noticed you moved the article I created due to notability on March 13. However I have amended these issues back in Nov 2007. He told me my changes I made were fine and that the article had sufficient enough references to be deemed credible. He authorized me to move it back to the article's name place.

Could you please move the article back as I have been in accordance with the other admin's guidelines?

Hello Discospinster,

Thanks for deleting the page. If you have two minutes, I'd give you some extra work. :) Could you please restore the two most recent edits by Markussep and BOTarate and move the page to Barret, Charente (so their edits will not be lost), then restore the other edits of Barret (except my edit) to keep the original history? In the end, the history will be split into the pages Barret and Barret, Charente. Thanks in advance, Korg (talk) 15:49, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

That seems OK. If Barret has only one deleted edit (my tagging), then that's perfect! I just wanted to keep the original history, as a disambiguation page existed previously.[1] Thank you very much! Korg (talk) 16:21, 16 March 2008 (UTC)
I forgot to mention the deleted redirect created after the page move. :) Finally, I've created the disambiguation page. Thanks again, Korg (talk) 18:46, 16 March 2008 (UTC)
