Was very impressed with your thorough and accurate history of our family publication, Music Trades. One small error however. Brian Majeski graduated from Lawrence University, Appleton, WI. Not St. Lawrence.

Thanks. Don't want friends and fellow alums from Lawrence to think I'm disavowing them.

John Anderson (Cal Scale)[edit]

This article, which I gather you're mostly responsible for, is kind of a mess. Could you take another look and see if you could make it more like other biographies? For example, the material under "Obituary" should be covered in the rest of the article. Overall, it's usually best to organize biographies chronologically. The material on his wife and children is probably excessive. The subject should be referred to by his last name, unless in the context of discussing other family members. Let me know if I can help.   Will Beback  talk  21:58, 16 September 2011 (UTC)

September 2011[edit]

Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you recently tried to give Waterson, Berlin & Snyder, Inc. a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into another page with a different name. This is known as a "cut and paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is needed for attribution and various other purposes. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page. This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other pages that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Cut and paste move repair holding pen. Thank you.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Chas. H. Hansen Music Corp. requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about an organization or company, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you.

Re: Bill Blakeley[edit]

You do have a point, the list entries are by themselves decent prose. If one removed the bullets, they might even work as a prose, albeit with a rather bad flow. Still, the article's structure looks odd compared to similar sports biographies (or, indeed, biographies in general), as it mixes biographical facts, achievements and statistics. Perhaps {{Cleanup-reorganize}} is a better fit? GregorB (talk) 10:12, 23 September 2012 (UTC)

Well that's nice[edit]

Thanks for spiffin' up Marlene VerPlanck. Very nice work. All the OCLC stuff is very useful, and the additional refs and other stuff too.

If you wanted to go for a DYK we could share it. Something about singing the M'm M'm Good Song might be interesting. I'm not big into to DYK and probably won't bother myself, but it might make a fun tidbit. Herostratus (talk) 04:35, 26 January 2013 (UTC)

Bonnie Baker (singer)[edit]

Are you planning to integrate the material you've contributed on her personal life with the material that I originally contributed on her career? The article looks a little messy and confused as it is now, so I'll be happy to do some tidying - I don't want to get in your way though. Do you know whether she was actually born Nelson, or Underhill? Ghmyrtle (talk) 09:18, 26 March 2013 (UTC)

Morris Levy[edit]

Do you have a source for the edit where you added Cynthia Brooks as a wife of Morris Levy? Or that he divorced her in 1961? 842U (talk) 12:21, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

Thanks, that's very useful information... at least for the article's TALK PAGE. It's odd that Frank Dannen, in his book Hit Men, said Levy was married four times, whereas Levy himself referred to five marriages. 842U (talk) 11:11, 15 August 2013 (UTC)
You seem also to have information on where he divorced his first wife Patricia (1954, Dade County, FL)... what was her maiden name, do we know? 842U (talk) 15:43, 15 August 2013 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of The Anderson School[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article The Anderson School has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Non-notable piece of promotion

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. ~Charmlet -talk- 19:18, 8 October 2013 (UTC)

A page you started (Bows for Musical Instruments of the Violin Family) has been reviewed![edit]

Thanks for creating Bows for Musical Instruments of the Violin Family, Eurodog!

Note[edit]

I suggest that you format your new article(s) primarily as prose, not as timelines or lists. --Orlady (talk) 13:14, 21 November 2013 (UTC)

Template:UNT Music[edit]

There is also considerable precedence not to add a silly long list of alumni. At least split it of to a separate template, fix the links to disambiguation pages and remove useless disambiguation like [[William Basinski|William Basinski]]. It is enough to write [[William Basinski]].

You have also added a list of alumni with articles on other Wikipedias. That is an absolute nono. Write the article or red link them. But you can't use a link to another Wikipedia.

And the second nasty comment: make sure all article wikilink to the university. During a quick check I noticed that that is not always the case. The Banner talk 18:55, 19 December 2013 (UTC)

Fair comments. The Alumni list is unique in that it is tightly connected to the template topic. The heft of the institution stands atop the alumni, far more than the faculty. The template is ideally suited to quickly communicate that point. About 25 to 40% (my guess) of that list is astoundingly notable. The ability to quickly view it in the template serves as a composite snapshot — a public review of the college's total work. It is akin to showing a discography for an artist. On the interlanguage stuff — I red-lined the names. Eurodog (talk) 20:45, 19 December 2013 (UTC)

Summaries[edit]

Hi there.

When editing an article on Wikipedia, you will see a small field labeled "Edit summary" shown under the main edit box. It looks like this:

Edit summary (Briefly describe your changes)

 

The text written here will appear on the Recent changes page, in the page revision history, on the diff page, and in the watchlists of users who are watching that article. See m:Help:Edit summary for full information on this feature.

Filling in the edit summary field greatly helps your fellow contributors in understanding what you changed, so please always fill in the edit summary field. If you are adding a section, please do not just keep the previous section's header in the Edit summary field – please fill in your new section's name instead. Thank you. --Dodi 8238 (talk) 19:28, 29 October 2014 (UTC)

Help needed with Johnny Helms article - picture to be deleted.[edit]

My dear Eurodog,

I see that you have an interest in the Johnny Helms article and would appreciate it if you could solve the issue with the small picture of Johnny that he gave me permission to use shortly before he died.

I have no idea what Wikipedia wants me to do so I need assistance from someone.

Here's what was just posted to my talk page:

Hello, JaneOlds. Some time ago, a file you uploaded — File:JohnnyHelmsJazzTrumpeter.png — was tagged with {{OTRS pending}}, indicating that you (or perhaps the copyright holder if you did not create this image) submitted a statement of permission to permissions-en@wikimedia.org. Though there is often a backlog processing messages received at this address, we should have received your message by now.

If you have not submitted (or forwarded) a statement of permission, please send it immediately to permissions-en@wikimedia.org and let us know at the OTRS noticeboard that you have done so. If you have already sent this message, it is possible that there was a problem receiving it. Please re-send it to permissions-en@wikimedia.org and let us know at the OTRS noticeboard that you have done so. If we don't hear from you within one week, the file will be deleted. If we can help you, please feel free to ask at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. --B-bot (talk) 14:37, 13 June 2015 (UTC)

Gold digger[edit]

Hello, Eurodog. You recently edited Gold digger, adding a great deal of detail and internal links. That page is not an article, though; it is a disambiguation page. Disambiguation pages follow a specific style, described at MOS:DAB, and contain just enough information to guide users to appropriate articles. I have therefore removed the information you added. Happy editing, Cnilep (talk) 04:18, 12 September 2016 (UTC)

There'll Be Some Changes Made[edit]

I took out your reference to Benton Overstreet being a pseudonym of Billy Higgins, as it is clear from other sources (see those articles) that they were separate individuals. But, do you have any information on "William Blackstone"? Was that a pseudonym of Higgins? There are plenty of sources that say that Higgins co-wrote the song with Overstreet, but also other sources which say that Overstreet wrote it with "Blackstone". Clarification is needed!

Formatting[edit]

Hello. I thought I'd come by and explain some of the edits I've done to numerous articles you've edited on.

  1. I'm not sure why you're so gung-ho about using "refbegin" on everything. I've never seen this anywhere on wikipedia.
  2. Your referencing/citation style is very unconventional. Not sure where you've seen this. Every ref I've seen has the "group=lower-alpha" coding after it. I can't find documentation on it but I believe it is preferred to use the referencing style that will produce numbers and not letters. Perhaps, if you have not, refer here: WP:CITE and the manual of style: WP:MOS
  3. The use of the borders is extraneous. I would advise against using them. As well as listing addresses per WP:NOTDIRECTORY.
  4. Seemingly, anything more than 40em does nothing. I would recommend perhaps using 30em, for 3 columns. This is how I found your account. I went through and searched wiki to see articles that was using this coding and found a number of pages done by you. So I decided to look at your contributions.
  5. I find a lot of formatting you've done is very difficult for the reader. For instance, Puchito Records discography. Everything should probably go in tables. It's very messy. Look at other discography pages if need be. I don't know if any record labels that have their own discography page, by the way. They have categories, like this
  6. Using semicolons for bold markup is harder for screen reader users (people who may be blind). Bold is preferred. :-)

Cotton Club Boys[edit]

I'm aware that was quite some time ago, but back in 2007 you wrote an article on the Cotton Club Boys. Today I tried to find additional references for that page and came upon [1], [2] and [3], all of which refer to a group of male dancers, not to some sort of band. Are those different groups? And is the band really notable? I have trouble finding any information whatsoever about it beyond "it was in Omaha", plus content that seems taken from us. Huon (talk) 19:12, 18 February 2017 (UTC)

Moved it (see Cotton Club Boys (territory band)). As for the Cotton Club Boys connected to the Cotton Club Parade of the uptown Cotton Club, and later midtown Cotton Club, an article would be useful. A separate one would be nice for the Harlem Club Girls, too. Eurodog (talk) 16:34, 23 February 2017 (UTC)
