Your edits[edit]

Hello, thanks for your edit to Mahalia Jackson. While checking out your talk page, I noticed that you received an incorrect vandalism warning for your edit to Life After Death from an automated anti-vandalism bot called ClueBot NG, so I've undone the edit and removed the warning.

November 2016: Kanye West's Late Registration Album[edit]

Dan56, I only added reliable information related to The Late Registration album by Kanye West from sites such as Genius.com (site with lyrics to the song), as that website has verifiable information, some of which come from the either the artist(s)/musician(s) themselves or other musicians who had actually worked (in the studio) with the artist. There are some cases when the Liner Notes alone doesn't credit all of the musicians, songwriters or samples that actually appear on the album. The added information wasn't of my own opinion but was based on facts. One example is on the song "Roses" in which background singer Tony Williams talks about Patti LaBelle recording her vocals on the song at the last minute (after the Liner notes had already been printed).<ref>Kanye West and Patti LaBelle. "Roses Lyrics". Genius.com. http://genius.com/Kanye-west-roses-lyrics</ref> Another example is the use of a Notorious B.I.G. vocal sample on the hidden track "Late", the same song where I added the source of the songwriting credits<ref>West, Kanye. "Late Lytics". Genius.com. http://genius.com/Kanye-west-late-lyrics</ref> (as information on the hidden track doesn't appear in the Liner notes).<ref>West, Kanye. "Late Registration (Digital Booklet). ''Album Artwork and Liner Notes''. Roc-a-Fella Records, LLC. 2005, 2014. http://albumlinernotes.com/uploads/Digital_Booklet_-_Late_Registration.pdf</ref>

Genius was found to be unreliable here; anyone with a registered account can edit or add information. Please consider finding other sources that verify this information. As far as the Biggie "sample", it's just one lyric I see that West used from a Biggie song; it really isn't necessary to deconstruct every rap song's lyrics, because--as in other music(s)--much of everything is borrowed in one form or another. Stick to the credits; if it's notable and not in the credits, it'll show up in reliable sources. Labelle's vocals are mentioned btw, in the article body, attributed to an interview she spoke in. Dan56 (talk) 15:14, 24 November 2016 (UTC)
Please stop adding arbitrary line breaks and disarranging the songwriters' names out of alphabetical order. Dan56 (talk) 17:35, 25 November 2016 (UTC)

Dan56, I was only doing that to make the track listing & personnel information look neater & easier for others to read, as the article can look pretty confusing without the line breaks. Also, I noticed you took out the other information that can actually be found in the Liner notes (such as DJ A-Trak scratching on "Gold Digger" and a female rapper by the name of "Strings" contributing additional vocals on "Addiction"). Please don't delete the additional Liner notes information on the musicians that appear in the actual Liner notes but wasn't on the website at first.

It looks fine on my screen; we cant customize article layouts for how it appears on your screen. If youre interested in neat, then please organize your changes rather than making a series of cluttered edits so they don't all get reverted. Dan56 (talk) 17:48, 25 November 2016 (UTC)

Information icon Welcome to Wikipedia, and thank you for your contributions. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, please note that there is a Manual of Style that should be followed to maintain a consistent, encyclopedic appearance. Deviating from this style, as you did in King (T.I. album), disturbs uniformity among articles and may cause readability or accessibility problems. Please take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you. TheAmazingPeanuts (talk) 01:39, 28 November 2016 (UTC)

December 2016[edit]

Information icon Please do not add or change content, as you did at Graduation (album), without citing a reliable source. Please review the guidelines at Wikipedia:Citing sources and take this opportunity to add references to the article. Thank you. TheAmazingPeanuts (talk) 00:38, 2 December 2016 (UTC)

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at Late Registration shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you are reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not edit-war. See BRD for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly. Dan56 (talk) 22:54, 3 December 2016 (UTC)

To Dan56, TheAmazingPeanuts and other editors, I would like to apologize if I caused any confusion. I was only trying to slightly rearrange the names on the songwriting, production and other sections so that all of the artists whose names are connected to a web link could be together. For example, (I believe that) the songwriting credits for "We Major" should be written as "West, Williams, Nasir Jones, Warren Trotter, Warryn Campbell, Russell Simmons, Larry Smith, Maureen Reid" Instead of the current arrangement of "Warryn Campbell, Nasir Jones, Maureen Reid, Russell Simmons, Larry Smith, Warren Trotter, West, Williams". Also, I was trying to correct the names of artists The Game and Jay Z, who were written incorrectly as "Game (rapper)" and "Jay-Z". As far as the additional link for the Hank Crawford song "Wildflower", I added it because the original liner notes only mentions the sample used in "Drive Slow" as being from a "Hank Crawford recording" without specific information about the sample's title.<ref>West, Kanye. "Late Registration (Digital Booklet)". Roc-a-Fella Records. 2005, 2014. http://albumlinernotes.com/uploads/Digital_Booklet_-_Late_Registration.pdf</ref> GoldenGuy23 (talk) 23:25, 3 December 2016 (UTC)

What is the benefit to arranging names that way?? There's less logic to this than alphabetizing the names, and if anything, creating a sea of blue by arranging the way you did is more likely to overwhelm the reader with consecutive, unseparated links. I wont entertain any more complaints about additions via WhoSampled; it's been explained before; please accept that it is not an encyclopedic/reliable source. Dan56 (talk) 23:34, 3 December 2016 (UTC)

While I now understand about the names being in alphabetical order, I'll have to respectfully disagree with you on the topic of music sites like WhoSampled.com, because while they might not be encyclopedic in the traditional sense, (to me) they're reliable if listeners can hear the actual sound(s) from both the original song and the song that uses that particular sound, melody or set of lyrics. GoldenGuy23 (talk) 23:41, 3 December 2016 (UTC)

Fine, disagree. Just don't add it to any article again. Thank you. Dan56 (talk) 00:37, 4 December 2016 (UTC)

New Amerykah Part One[edit]

Scans of the album's credited personnel are available here at Discogs; please adhere to those credits if you are to make more changes to the article's personnel section. Dan56 (talk) 23:36, 9 December 2016 (UTC)

The main source (Liner Notes) seems to be the basis for this Discogs entry, as it has the "complete" credits: [1] GoldenGuy23 (talk) 00:40, 10 December 2016 (UTC)

You do know that some unknown person(s) put that entry together, simply because they had a Discogs account (WP:SPS) Please stick to what you can actually prove are the official credits, i.e. the scanned images. Dan56 (talk) 00:50, 10 December 2016 (UTC)

"Christmas Duets"[edit]

Kellymoat, to answer your question on the edit page for the posthumous Elvis Presley album Christmas Duets, I only added the sources because not all of the information on personnel (such as some of the background singers) are mentioned on the main Discogs.com source. Some of the important information on the background singers who aren't mentioned on Discogs can only be found on the notes of those YouTube videos, which are based on the album's physical Liner notes. GoldenGuy23 (talk) 21:32, 2 January 2017 (UTC)

To Kellymoat, Discogs.com is a reliable source, as the information on those web pages are adapted from (meaning "based on") the physical liner notes for that particular album &/or single. I added Discogs as the main source because that is where I got most of my additional information (such as the tracks that the additional musicians appeared on) from. GoldenGuy23 (talk) 01:41, 3 January 2017 (UTC)

Discogs is a wiki, therefore it is unreliable as a source. Anyone can go in and edit it to say whatever they want it to say - the same as you can do on Wikipedia. Kellymoat (talk) 02:00, 3 January 2017 (UTC)

Pop recordings of famous Christmas carols[edit]

Hi, what's the notability criteria you're using for this list? Are you intending to add every single performance of these carols available on record? What about recordings of choirs singing carols? I expect the list of cathedral choirs singing those runs to hundreds, so good luck with your quest. Rob (talk) 23:50, 17 January 2017 (UTC)

I'm not trying to add every single recording of these carols (which would probably be "book length"), I'm just trying to list a variety of artists (from different genres & time periods) who have recorded the song, as most of the other Christmas songs (both secular and gospel) have a list of artists (usually from various genres) who've recorded those songs on their web page, usually ranging from the time those songs were created &/or the time that sound recording technology became available for musicians & producers/engineers to record those songs.

  • GoldenGuy23, you need to make an unblock request by following the instructions: don't include the {{tlx|}} code, and don't embed your request inside someone else's comment. However, if you'd posted that unblock request as written, it would've been declined, anyway. The majority of sources that you've added to the articles aren't reliable. WhoSampled, Discogs, the IMDb, Google search queries, and self-published blogs aren't reliable. This is part of the reason why you've been blocked: you seem unable to identify which sources are reliable. You really should read through WP:RS, as Beeblebrox advised. Once you can demonstrate that you understand how to identify a reliable source, it's likely you'll be unblocked. NinjaRobotPirate (talk) 10:56, 31 January 2017 (UTC)

Request reason:

Reading the "Reliable Sources" article, I'm going to do my best to add "reliable sources" to the information I've added on certain web pages (such as Pages regarding "Christmas Songs", like "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch", for example. I'm asking that I pleased be unblocked now. The reason why I should be unblocked is because I'm also going to see if I can find any information (including the information that I had "already added") on sites that are based on the song's source (Album and/or Single) liner notes. The reason why I should be unblocked is because I added reliable sources from quite a few websites to the webpage You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch immediately after I was warned a few times about the "Lack of sources". Also, even if it takes me a while, I always add sources to the information that I add to a web page, as my editing history will prove. I'm asking that you please reconsider my being blocked from editing. Thanks for your time

Decline reason:

Having regard to the extensive warnings you have received, I don't view a 1 week block as excessive. My suggestion is, on your return, to take the amendments that you wish to make, with the sources you have found, to the talk pages of the articles in question, and discuss the appropriateness of the changes and the sources before you make the changes.

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first, then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page until your block has expired.

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited List of Grammy Hall of Fame Award recipients (A–D), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Come Fly with Me. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Request reason:

First, I would like to apologize for any confusion I may have caused in editing information on this website. I believe that I should be unblocked because when I edited the Discography for Hip-Hop producer J Dilla, I added important information regarding the production credits he (posthumously) received after his untimely death in 2006 at the age of 32, as his production credits list (the latest ones being released in 2016) without the notes on when the later releases were recorded or which J Dilla's productions were sampled, initially had implications that J Dilla was still alive and clearly contradicted the main J Dilla page. Now, In regards to the Illa J album Yancey Boys, I added the sample sources back and was in the process of adding Illa J & Mike Floss as co-producers (according to that album's Liner Notes), because I felt that the information that credited J Dilla as sole producer without adding co-producer information (not to mention sample credits which featured actual evidence of both the sampled & original sound recordings) would've been misleading. I will gladly research other "legitimate" sources and websites (such as articles & album reviews) to see if the same information that I added to the affected webpages is there as well and (if it hasn't been done already) delete any mention of Discogs & WhoSampled from the Pages I edited. Again, I apologize for any confusion that I may have caused on Wikipedia GoldenGuy23 (talk) 01:10, 12 April 2017 (UTC)

Decline reason:

You have not convinced me you have read and understood WP:CITE and particularly, WP:RS.

Request reason:

I would like to please be unblocked. The reason why I believe me being blocked indefinitely is no longer necessary is because the majority of the information that I added for albums such as Kanye West's Late Registration and The Pharcyde's Labcabincalifornia was based on information I found in the actual Liner notes and not from unreliable sources. The only reason that I added information from WhoSampled.com for certain articles is because I couldn't find another more reliable website that stated, for example, where the drum loop for "Drive Slow" was sampled from, as I thought more information on that particular drum loop was important. I also didn't know that Songfacts, where I got the information for Kanye re-using the lyrics from Peter, Paul and Mary's "Leaving on a Jet Plane", was an unreliable source as well. As for the drum sample used on "Heard 'Em Say", I added a YouTube source for it because there wasn't any source for the information at first. I now know and have learned, again and again, to use only reliable sources include physical / digital liner notes & articles on album, musical &/or other reviews. I've also learned that the other sources considered "unreliable" are subject to change &/or be deleted at anytime for any reason. Also, I also don't think the indefinite block is necessary because I didn't mean to cause any damage or disruption to Wikipedia and promise to do my best to not cause any more damage or disruption to Wikipedia. Thanks. GoldenGuy23 (talk) 17:26, 12 August 2017 (UTC)

Decline reason:

You've promised before to stop adding unreliable sources, yet you've continued. I think you need to make a better case than this.

Request reason:

I'm requesting that I be unblocked from editing Wikipedia because I've read and understood how to properly edit Wikipedia via the Wikipedia:Identifying reliable sources webpages. I would like to continue to add only reliable sources (such as articles, books & videos from reputable, verified websites) with the appropriate context that's neither "too new" (such as breaking News) or "too old" (outdated information) to use. I understand why self-published sources and user-generated sites such as WhoSampled.com would be considered "Questionable" and not acceptable for Wikipedia, as information featured on that site can also be incorrect at times. I also understand now that the only exception where self-published or otherwise questionable sources are acceptable on this website is when the information was created and / or credited to a either qualified editorial staff or a qualified member of an editorial staff. Also, I'm fully aware that, as a Wikipedia editor, I need to take extra care when editing information about living people and that Wikipedia prefers reliable secondary and tertiary sources to primary ones (which should also only be used with extra care). Quotations and other information from reliable sources should be accurate and Breaking News stories, like Primary Sources, should be used only if necessary and with caution.

Songwriters information on the Track Listing of the album Destroy Rock & Roll by Mylo are based on the album’s own Liner notes. I’m in the process of adding reliable sources (such as album reviews) to other important information that wasn’t in the Liner notes. GoldenGuy23 (talk) 17:52, 18 November 2017 (UTC)

We need reliable sources for the information. You added a link to a blog on Destroy Rock & Roll—blogs are not reliable sources of information because anybody can make one and write whatever they want.

Your sloppy editing[edit]

Please see WP:MOS and WP:MOSALBUM for guidelines on how you edit Wikipedia, because your editing is sloppy and it doesn't go by the guidelines.

TheAmazingPeanuts (talk) 22:48, 5 April 2018 (UTC)

Use "straight" quotation marks, not “curly” ones, per (MOS:CURLY). TheAmazingPeanuts (talk) 18:52, 9 April 2018 (UTC)
Do you want me to report you again and have you blocked? Follow Wikipedia's guidelines like anyone else, your editing and grammar is very problematic and typically, when another editor response to you about your editing, you are expected to answer it. Now please explain your editing. TheAmazingPeanuts (talk) 18:32, 10 April 2018 (UTC)
The only reason I use the “curly” quotation marks because of the particular iPhone I have (for editing, I use an iPhone and the quotation marks come out as “curly” instead of "straight"). I sometimes have to copy and paste "straight" quotation marks from either other parts of the particular article I’m editing or from other articles that feature the "straight" marks. I apologize for any inconvenience I may have caused. GoldenGuy23 (talk) 08:21, 11 April 2018 (UTC)
