Hyphens and Key Names[edit]

What literature? In the context of a list, it would be "Clarinet in B-flat" Justin Tokke (talk) 02:17, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

Actually, it could be either with or without a hyphen. I just did a quick check of my record collection, which seems as good a sample as any; turns out it's pretty evenly divided between hyphenators ("A-flat major") and non-hyphenators.
Therefore, the hyphen isn't required. For simplicity's sake, then, my preference would be to not use it. It seems, well, fussier with the hyphen in there. --ILike2BeAnonymous (talk) 05:39, 22 August 2009 (UTC)
But that's not what has been used on Wikipedia for a while. Hyphens have become standard for Wikipedia when talking about Keys and instruments. I have seen it both ways too, but I find the hyphenation more clearly attaching the "B" to the "flat". Justin Tokke (talk) 05:43, 22 August 2009 (UTC)
Except that it's not "what's been used" here for a while. Haven't done a formal count, but my sense is that it's evenly divided here as well between hyphenated and not. And I really don't see why any extra little lines are needed to "attach" the letter to the "flat" or "sharp". That's done by the reader's brain. --ILike2BeAnonymous (talk) 05:48, 22 August 2009 (UTC)
I'm not part of the editing of those pages, but I thought that the hyphen was used when the hyphenated words were describing a following word, as in A-flat major, but not used when the would-be hyphenated words stand alone: A flat. This is the case for non-musical terms like African American versus African-American president. Binksternet (talk) 17:18, 22 August 2009 (UTC)
That's the logic. The hyphen attaches the "B" to the "flat" but the space implies they are separate. The hyphen removes all ambiguity. Justin Tokke (talk) 21:39, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

Cigar fillers[edit]

I'm curious as to why the jr cigars link is not considered commercial then since they have links on that page to actual product pages and the famous smoke blog has incredible authority in the cigar world and is none commercial, though the site is.

I am slightly confused. -Cayden ツ ;̡̡ ̴̡ı̴̴̡ ̡̡͡|̲̲̲͡͡͡ ̲▫̲͡ ̲̲̲͡͡π̲̲͡͡ ̲̲͡▫̲̲͡͡ ̲|̡̡̡ ̡ ̴̡ı̴̡̡

What do you think of these?[edit]

Audio theatre an article to audio dramas[edit]

Please if you have time and you know anything to it (I have seen that you have made edits in the article area which owns relations on it) , please look on the article Audio theatre, somebody placed a erase discussion on it. after we have had a merge discussion. It would be interesting what you would say to the merge and the delete discussion. And possibly it could help to contact other people that they should help also. )-: Merry Xmas --Soenke Rahn (talk) 15:22, 22 December 2010 (UTC)
