This is your Talk page where you can receive messages from other Wikipedians and discuss things with them. At the end of your messages you must put your signature by signing with four ~~~~ or by pressing the button in the editor bar as shown here in the picture. By the way, you don't need to sign edits that you make in the articles themselves as those messages will be deleted. Another valuable page that may provide information and assistance is User:Persian Poet Gal/"How-To" Guide to Wikipedia. My name is Buster7. If you have any questions or face any initial hurdles, feel free to contact me on my talk page and I will do what I can to assist. Good Luck editing! Buster Seven Talk 16:26, 4 December 2011 (UTC)

Karen David[edit]

You appear to be single-purpose account who is on Wikipedia solely to promote Karen David and her albums. You have repeatedly entered content unsupported by citations, in violation of WP:VERIFY and WP:BLP, and self-promotionally inserted a photo credit on the article page rather than on the photo's own page as per image guidelines. This is not constructive behavior nor in the spirit of building an objective, neutral encyclopedia. At least two editors today have reverted many of these non-constructive edits. If you continue this clear conflict-of-interest, promotional editing, an admin will be asked to intervene.--Tenebrae (talk) 14:47, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

I also see there have been concerns about this article's self-promotional nature since 2012.--Tenebrae (talk) 14:50, 8 January 2014 (UTC)


Why isn't IMDb allowed to be referenced? The subject herself controls the IMDb page through her IMDb Pro account. Gemmamerritt (talk) 22:40, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

IMDb is a wikia. Wikipedia does not allow wikia — which have user-generated content and little or no editorial control — to be cited as a reference source. And may I reiterate, from your February edits that I just say, you appear to be a publicist for Karen David and maybe others. Wikipedia is not a place for your promotional content. --Tenebrae (talk) 02:59, 5 May 2014 (UTC)

Removal of Nabiha discography not a solution[edit]

You have removed Nabiha Discography several times by one click of the mouse giving reason "removed, as incorrect data is constantly inserted". Incorrect information doesn't mean the entire section disappears. Incorrect information as you claim merits replacement of incorrect information by the correct one not by its deletion with one stroke of your mouse which is a no brainer as it takes five seconds to delete a full history of edits. We depend mostly on accurate archives to reflect positions. For example, the Danish main listing is based on Tracklisten and Hitlisten found also on site danishcharts.com here. http://danishcharts.com/showinterpret.asp?interpret=Nabiha . The Belgian Vlanders positions are based on Belgian Ultratop site http://www.ultratop.be/nl/search.asp?search=Nabiha&cat=s and other related specialized sites on that page. Another reliable chart is aCharts.us on this page: http://acharts.us/performer/nabiha The UK positions are not verified as they are taken from a deleted Nabiha page that we quote http://nabihamusic.com/biography-2/ Since you seem so knowledgeable on this artist, propose to us the "correct" discography. Prepare a draft of what you propose accompanied by the sources you have and post them on the talk page Talk:Nabiha and we will take it from there. We need proper references not just some radio chart, as I have seen many arbitrary positions included and had to revert them to the proper danishcharts.com and ultratop.be charts .. Or if you are not willing to do the whole table on the talk page, at least indicate to us exactly what is wrong with what we have presently, which specific position is incorrect, not just some general statement that it is wrong, as you have done. This is your chance to prove your point once and for all on the talk page. Until you tell us the exact incorrect items, we have no way but to keep what we have as is. Deleting the present discography section en masse is just vandalism as it erases all her chart history. And we don't want to do that. werldwayd (talk) 21:08, 23 March 2014 (UTC)

After further search, here is a new reference for UK positions for "Never Played the Bass" https://soundcloud.com/big-ang/nabiha-never-played-the-bass which also matches with what we say. Still waiting for what so called errors we are running. Please do that on the talk page and not delete what exists. werldwayd (talk) 22:43, 23 March 2014 (UTC)
