Whether the logo is png or svg doesn't really matter to me. However, I've noticed an unfortunate tendancy by svg enthusiasts to replace existing images without carrying over all the information attached to the original file. Please, if you are going to make the change, carry along the category information which is Category:German football logos and anything else that might be useful or relevant. Wiggy!

that's fine, will do -- i was just surprised as there was no additional info provided with the revert. -- esse quam videri - to be rather than to seem (talk) 06:23, 21 May 2010 (UTC)

Stranica o Radetu Šerbedžiji[edit]

Ne razumijem Vaše motive za revert mojih ispravaka na stranici o Radetu Šerbedžiji. Mišljenja sam da je ispravno pisati njegovo prezime u originalu, dakle s dijakritičkim znakovima. Mišljenja sam da su moje ispravke oko teatra Gavella u Zagrebu korektne, tj. da riječi koje sam izostavio/izmijenio nisu imale nikakvog smisla. Ovo su bile moje izmjene, koje ste revertirali:

Sklon sam moje izmjene ponoviti, ako se slažete, no bit ću Vam zahvalan za obrazloženje, ukoliko i dalje mislite da to što sam napravio nije ispravno. Pozdrav, Borut (talk) 12:29, 23 June 2010 (UTC)

apsolutno točno, izmijenio sam jedan drugi dio teksta a pritom nisam dovoljno obratio pozor na ostatak izmjena -- ispričavam se i naravno da pozdravljam promjenu teksta u izvorno i točno pisanje osobnog imena. -- esse quam videri - to be rather than to seem (talk) 22:02, 23 June 2010 (UTC)

i'm sorry but it is rather the other way round -- you have repeatedly removed correct information in the article along with its sources without providing either a reason for such edits or sources that could validate said changes.

i reverted your edits as they appeared to be vandalism, i however realized you were having a content dispute with another user and restored your edit as well as removed the warning from your talk page. cheers WookieInHeat (talk) 21:54, 8 September 2010 (UTC)


The format violated several guidelines, since you want me to explain; here we go I guess. Rules state that if a discography page already exists for a musical artist, nothing other than albums is supposed to be listed per WP:ALBUM. Infobox guidelines state that nothing other than names is to be stated in the members section of an artist infobox, so I.E., Eazy-E being deceased cannot be listed within the infobox. Furthermore; WP:ALBUM also states genres are not capitalized, they are not proper nouns, if you ask me; that's just common sense. Speaking of common sense; that revision of the page was just a mess, the title for the infobox was not proper and suggestions also state that unnecessary noting in the lead are to be avoided, we only need what "N.W.A" stands for (as sourced: "Niggaz with Attitude) as the only thing noted within parenthesis. Happy now? - GunMetal Angel 16:21, 9 September 2010 (UTC)

thanks for the clarification in regard to the edits. concerning the discography, if you apply said guidelines, it would help your point much to be consistent in that regard -- "n.w.a & the posse" is not a studio album, but a compilation of several singles and eps released by various artists. will amend accordingly. capitalized genre names and the additional info about eazy-e had not been added by me; these revisions and their reinclusion were collateral damage caused by your edits dealing with the group's name. n.w.a stands for "niggaz wit attitudes" -- this was a) sourced and b) is the way the band members themselves have always referred to the group, both in interviews and on record. it was agreed upon with other editors and an admin that both versions of the full name would be included on the page, until you chimed in and removed it arbitrarily. will amend accordingly as well. furthermore, in this specific case, the capitalization guidelines have to be modified, thanks to the fact that the band name is abbreviated in all capitals -- again, consistency and common sense reasons point that guidelines shouldn't be applied verbatim and indiscriminately. your efforts to help are appreciated, however. cheers.

Your revert on the N.W.A. article[edit]

Before you revert my changes again on the N.W.A article please see Talk:N.W.A#Date of Ice Cube's departure. Also, I wasn't vandalizing, I was trying to correct something that may be more accurate. (talk) 22:15, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

Reverted your edit at HNK Hajduk Split[edit]

Hello from Japanese Wikipedia. You should NOT create new page with copying & pasting, which is STRICTLY PROHIBITED because of the GFDL violation. If you do such things in JAWP again, we will be blocked as a vandalist. If you REALLY want to move that article for some reasons, please come to my talkpage in JAWP.

Orphaned non-free media (File:Cameo Word Up rear.jpg)[edit]

Thank you for contributing to Wikipedia. We always appreciate when users upload new images.

He was a member. Look at his twitter, @WESTCOASTDOC. He wrote all of Eazy's lyrics on the N.W.A albums, many lyrics on Eazy-Duz-It, and all of the lyrics on his own album. Watch any interview with him or the other members. Straight Outta Compton, Eazy-Duz-It, and No One Can Do It Better were all recorded over the course of about 7 months. It was all one big project, but they happened to be released as different albums. DyniCPA (talk) 00:41, 6 October 2015 (UTC)

He was a collaborator, not a member -- which is a fundamental difference. I have been following N.W.A since 1988 -- the D.O.C. was never a member of the band. Go ahead and ask him, I've been in touch with him over Twitter. Here is the member list on the "Gangsta Gangsta" release: -- esse quam videri - to be rather than to seem (talk) 16:04, 8 October 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Associated acts per infobox instructions[edit]

At Template:Infobox musical artist the instructions say that "associated acts" should be very closely interconnected in a business sense, that the acts share two or more common members, that they have collaborated multiple times or shared a stage as a single combined act, etc. It's not enough that the artists make similar music. That's why I reverted your addition to the NWA article. Binksternet (talk) 18:34, 6 February 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for your comment. It seems you are not familiar with the group and how the acts I listed have collaborated. They have mutually featured each other on their respective releases, share producer credits and have toured together -- this was common policy @ Ruthless Records at the time. The reason I listed them is not because of "similar music" but for the very reasons you listed. I'll revert accordingly, because the edit meets the criteria. --esse quam videri - to be rather than to seem (talk) 03:57, 7 February 2017 (UTC)
Sharing a producer and label is not enough. Touring together is not enough. Please read Template:Infobox_musical_artist#associated_acts. If two groups collaborated on multiple songs, the article should say so, with a reliable reference. Binksternet (talk) 04:19, 7 February 2017 (UTC)
From the info box you quoted -> This field can include, for example, any of the following: For individuals: 'groups of which he or she has been a member' -> applies to Arabian Prince and DJ Yella. Other acts with which this act has collaborated on multiple occasions, or on an album -> applies to the other listed acts -- the producers are not only "shared" but members of one of the other acts or even one of the acts proper. The critera are not cumulatively mandatory as you have stated (e.g. "AND"), rather a single criterion is sufficient for inclusion ("ANY", "OR", according to the info box). I can certainly link the sources (credits printed on the released records, which are documented on the database I haven't seen that the associated acts have to be part of the article. If so, I can add them. Cheers. --esse quam videri - to be rather than to seem (talk) 12:28, 7 February 2017 (UTC)
