Hey, I'm Friginator. Have Questions? Comments? Possibly a subpoena? Let it be known here. Note that my comments are italicized and bulleted. Why? Because it pleases me. It pleases me in a filthy, filthy way. But ignore that! You probably have something to say. Please leave all new messages at the bottom of the page.

Your revert[edit]

Dear Friginator, the logic for keeping Frequency Unknown within the Queensrÿche catalog was intended to make it clearer to people what the place of Tate's lineup is. You reverted my edits to relate Frequency Unknown and The Key with the argument that "A second, (arbitrary) chronology is just going to confuse people." I disagree to this for the following reasons:

  • It's not arbitrary. If one and the same lineup first releases an album under the Queensrÿche moniker and then using a different band name, it's still being performed by the same lineup and therefore it doesn't make sense to accredit that first album to them.
  • It's more confusing to force Frequency Unknown in a lineup in which every other album had only smaller changes in the lineup, then one album with a completely different lineup save for one band member, and then go back to the rest of the lineup, rather than clarifying to people that Frequency Unkown was made by this lineup and they have now gone on under a different name.

Therefore, I feel it does make sense to make the connection between Frequency Unknown and The Key more explicit than it is now. If you disagree, I would like to understand the argumentation behind it. --Eddyspeeder (talk) 20:14, 31 July 2015 (UTC)

  • Was "Frequency Unknown" a Queensrÿche album? Yes. Is "The Key" a Queensrÿche album? No. Seems pretty self-explanatory. If you wanted to mention somewhere in the article body that they share most of the same musicians, that would be fine with me. Friginator (talk) 20:48, 31 July 2015 (UTC)

WTF m8?[edit]

I didn't even do those things! I DON'T EVEN LIKE MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE! Why are you saying I did those things when I know I didn't? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:56, 14 January 2016 (UTC)

  • Well, as far as I can tell, someone with your IP Address removed content without explanation from three articles related to the band My Chemical Romance way back in August 2012. So I posted a few warnings on your page. It might not have been you, but your edit history can be found here, showing that someone with a IP removed content without explanation. I'm not holding a grudge, if that's what you mean. Friginator (talk) 00:20, 15 January 2016 (UTC)

Godzilla Review[edit]

Rotten Tomatoes only counts reviews as positive or negative, so using that metric alone to judge is reviews were positive or mixed is inaccurate. Godzilla's average score is only 6.6/10. To illustrate, a movie with ten 3-star reviews would have a 100% on RT, while a movie with six 5-star reviews and four 2-star reviews would only have 60%, even though the first movie would have an average rating of 3 stars, and the second 3.8 stars. Most of the sources used for the review summary clearly state that most reviews have been mixed, with even the positive reviews noting large flaws in the movie. — Preceding unsigned comment added by MegaSolipsist (talkcontribs) 23:40, 29 August 2016 (UTC)

  • I'm aware of how Rotten Tomatoes works, and I should probably point out that your analysis of their system is irrelevant when it comes to the "certified fresh" rating. According to the Rotten Tomatoes website, "Movies and TV shows are Certified Fresh with a steady Tomatometer of 75% or higher after a set amount of reviews (80 for wide-release movies, 40 for limited-release movies, 20 for TV shows), including 5 reviews from Top Critics." So your examples of movies that have, say, ten reviews don't apply. The film in question has 286 reviews. And stating that, in your words, "even the positive reviews [noted] large flaws in the movie" is ridiculous for two reasons. The first reason is that any good reviewer will note the flaws in a film. Second, it honestly sounds like the issue here lies with your analysis of the reviews, and not what is verifiable. Metacritic also states "Generally favorable reviews." You opined that Rotten Tomatoes' system is flawed because they only count things as "positive" or "negative"? Well, Metacritic isn't like that. If something gets mixed reviews, Metacritic will say mixed. So I think the burden lies on you to not only find sources that definitively and objectively call the reception to the film "mixed", but also for those sources to be more notable and trustworthy than both Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic. I doubt that is going to happen. Friginator (talk) 00:16, 30 August 2016 (UTC)

//So I think the burden lies on you to not only find sources that definitively and objectively call the reception to the film "mixed"// Already done. Those were the sources used for the summary of the critical reception. You can't say that reception was positive when most of your sources clearly state that reception was mixed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by MegaSolipsist (talkcontribs) 20:26, 30 August 2016 (UTC)

  • I've checked all the sources, and apart from not being as notable as Rotten Tomatoes or Metacritic, they don't even remotely come close to backing up your claim. Some are just articles about the early buzz surrounding the movie's release. One (this one) was put out before any reviews were even published online! And you call that a reliable source for critical consensus?! And reading stuff in the other articles like "While the reviews for Gareth Edwards's Godzilla have been largely positive" makes me wonder if you checked the sources before trying to pick a fight over something so insignificant. Please don't pester me over this again without something substantial to back it up. And that's not an invitation. I would be more than happy to never argue over this again.

Emotion (Carly Rae Jepsen album)[edit]

Hey, so I see you're a part of WikiProject Albums and I'm having this huge dilemma: I can't tell if this article is worth being listed as B-class. I mean it pretty much meets all the criteria, save for not enough pictures (but who cares about those?). I'd really like your opinion on it. Thanks! If you really think it's worth being B-class, can you change its rating, I just changed it to C, changing it right afterwards to B would seem a bit biased, get what I mean? Please excuse my horrendous run-on sentences. Esmost πк 23:11, 2 September 2016 (UTC)

  • While I'm not entirely familiar with this album in particular, I took a quick look at the article and it seems like B-class would be a safe assessment to me. Cheers. Friginator (talk) 23:37, 2 September 2016 (UTC)
