How you can help

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. We appreciate your contributions, but for legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted.

You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words.

If the external website belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must include on the external site the statement "I, (name), am the author of this article, (article name), and I release its content under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.2 and later."

You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here. You can also leave a message on my talk page.--PMDrive1061 (talk) 03:28, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

Nikki Yanofsky[edit]

Sorry, I went kind of overboard there. Labels never need citations, I've said that before. Still, good call on bringing the discography to attention, since it did contain a lot of questionable content (the "Canadian Jazz" chart doesn't seem to actually exist, and I got no google hits for some of the songs she supposedly released). I removed the "Big Mouth" album entirely since I could not verify that the album actually has that name. Ten Pound Hammer(What did I screw up now?) 13:28, 10 October 2018 (UTC)

Jamie Lee Curtis[edit]

If only one part of an article lacking sources, such as Jamie Lee Curtis, please use {{refimprove-section}} or {{unreferenced-section}} on just that section. Don't put a {{refimprove}} all the way at the top. Because you put it at the top, I scrolled almost all the way down and didn't see anything that was lacking in sources. Also, filmographies are usually summaries of content that is verified in other articles, so they don't need super extensive citations.

  • @Jax 0677: The leads of articles generally don't need references, because they are summarizing key points that are verified elsewhere in the article. As an introduction, it doesn't need to repeat citations for content already cited in the article proper. Ten Pound Hammer(What did I screw up now?) 21:52, 13 October 2018 (UTC)

Nuthin' 2 Prove[edit]

On Nuthin' 2 Prove, there is literally not a single sentence that is unsourced. Exactly how can more sources be added if there is literally zero unsourced content? Also, the album is only two days away from release. If the release date is less than a week away, then give it a chance to build up the notability (see WP:CHANCE).

  • Also, I did add a couple more secondary sources. Still, if a track listing is verified, and the release date is less than a week away, then give the article a chance to grow when the release date comes. Ten Pound Hammer(What did I screw up now?) 14:15, 17 October 2018 (UTC)

Maddie & Tae[edit]

Exactly what was unsourced on Maddie & Tae? Please, if something is unsourced, use {{refimprove-section}}. Just slapping a {{refimprove}} at the top when there is nothing immediately obvious in need of sourcing is unhelpful. Ten Pound Hammer(What did I screw up now?) 14:15, 17 October 2018 (UTC)

  • Reply - @TenPoundHammer:, "Friends Don't", Tours and Awards. When doing document revisions, people use the term "Extensively Revised" for documents on which there are too many corrections. --Jax 0677 (talk) 15:48, 17 October 2018 (UTC)
"Friends Don't" is cited already in the discography section. Ten Pound Hammer(What did I screw up now?) 00:31, 18 October 2018 (UTC)
Also, there is no such thing as "too many corrections" on Wikipedia. It took me hundreds, if not thousands of edits to get certain articles to GA status. Ten Pound Hammer(What did I screw up now?) 00:52, 18 October 2018 (UTC)
Reply - @TenPoundHammer:, actually, "Friends Don't" is not cited under the "Music videos" section. Furthermore, the reference is dated before the time that the song peaked. --Jax 0677 (talk) 13:15, 18 October 2018 (UTC)

Area21[edit]

Please explain this edit in Area21. What does the term "duo" have to do with the "where" tag? The tagging makes zero sense. Ten Pound Hammer(What did I screw up now?) 02:03, 18 October 2018 (UTC)

  • Reply - @TenPoundHammer:, articles about musical ensembles should have a nation of origin. --Jax 0677 (talk) 13:18, 18 October 2018 (UTC)
