Fan sites[edit]

Please take the time to review and understand WP:RS. Fansites are not reliable, and cannot be used to source information in Wikipedia.—Kww(talk) 16:05, 7 March 2009 (UTC)


Leona Lewis[edit]

I have provided a source here. Dynablaster (talk) 00:09, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

Keri Hilson - Quicksand[edit]

http://www.amazon.com/In-A-Perfect-World/dp/B001XJV5Z6/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&s=dmusic&qid=1237677710&sr=1-6

There is the source, I have been adding Quicksand, now will you please leave it intact? Danja is obviously the producer, and I also have a source for that too, but cannot find it at the moment.

Thats fine. Please dont use an offensive or menacing tone. i simply meant that the article has had many false tracklistings and i am trying to make sure that only factual information is kept. (Lil-unique1 (talk) 23:25, 21 March 2009 (UTC))

Leona Lewis[edit]

Hi

I'm going to assume you had the best intentions when you made this edit, but I've reverted you - your edit changed, for example, "Leona Lewis" to "Leona Leona". Additionally, the idea is that we try and maintain a neutral point of view - we shouldn't, for example, refer to thearticle's subject by her firstname, as that implies familiarity and is inappropriate for an encyclopaedia - it makes the article read like a fansite, whereas the idea is to make it sound like it was written by a completely impartial (neutral) editor.

Cheers, This flag once was redpropagandadeeds 21:45, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Actually refering to her by her last name is more like a fansite and less like an encylopedia as the previous editor pointed out. and the leona leona thing was one slight error (Lil-unique1 (talk) 21:47, 23 March 2009 (UTC))
Which "last editor"? And as has been pointed out below, your view regarding the use of first names is very much a contrarian one. Cheers, This flag once was redpropagandadeeds 22:02, 23 March 2009 (UTC)
sorry i stand corrected. (Lil-unique1 (talk) 22:05, 23 March 2009 (UTC))
No problem! Though I must admit, I'm trying hard to think of even one fansite where they refer to their subject by surname! Cheers, This flag once was redpropagandadeeds 22:20, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Use of last names in Bio articles[edit]

Re: Soundz[edit]

I think you are a little confused. While "The Soundz" might be the name of a production group, "Soundz" is just one man (Kenneth C. Coby). Since he always goes by just "Soundz", I changed the move. Hopefully this clears things up. Tom Danson (talk) 03:38, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

Pussycat Dolls discography[edit]

Hi there. Please refer to the talk page regarding Billbaord references for both "Right Now (NBA version)" and "Top of the world". I have provided Billbaord references to show that both were released as commercial singles, not as promotional only. If you disgree then we need to find a Wikipedia consensus or policy on the defintion of a single. I don't see why such a definition would differ from Billboard as they are a credible reference and trusted source of data. Please discuss an talk page.--Design (talk) 01:12, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

Kara Dioguardi[edit]

Hi there. Two very good sources of reliable songwriter info are ascap.com & bmi.com here is a link to BMI listing Kara Dioguardi's registration as a co-writer of "I Hate This Part", ensuring that she recieve's songwriter royalties. [1] regards--Design (talk) 05:26, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

RE: Ciara Discography[edit]

I would appreciate it if you would check who submits what on wikipedia before you accuse someone of putting on false information. I never entered anything regarding the chart success of Ciara's two songs (Go Girl and Never Ever). All I did was add in the nz chart success of her other song Love Sex Magic; it was someone else who added in the false information on the 31st March! If you compare edits you will see this. I would never intentionally graffiti any page with wrong information or facts. --Zurak26 (talk) 12:19, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for File:Nicole2008.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Nicole2008.jpg. You've indicated that the image meets Wikipedia's criteria for non-free content, but there is no explanation of why it meets those criteria. Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. If you have any questions, please post them at Wikipedia:Media copyright questions.

Thank you for your cooperation. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page. STBotI (talk) 16:17, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

Nicole Scherzinger[edit]

Hi Lil-unique1, can you please stop changing the current free image on the Nicole Scherzinger article with a fair-use one? See WP:NONFREE: fair-use images shouldn't be used to depict living people, and as I stated here, there is even less reason to use a fair-use image of a living person when we already have a free image already available. Can you please consider reverting yourself? I'm not interested in revert-warring over this, but image issues are very important. Thanks. Acalamari 16:25, 7 April 2009 (UTC)

Whitney Houston[edit]

Will you explain how you feel that article is too long, and what problems you have with its lead (intro)? Perhaps on its talk page? Simply tagging the article with the tags you did without explanation on the talk page will not solve your problems with it. Especially, when an editor tries to fix those problems you have with it and you add the tags back. I mean, think of it from our perspective: Are editors supposed to keep trying to figure out what problems you have with the article until you are satisfied with one of their edits? The article itself has not even yet suggested it be split, and there are other articles on Wikipedia of legendary singers far longer than Whitney Houston's.

If you do not explain what improvements you feel need to be made to the article in a way that you will be satisfied with, I will remove the tags you placed on the article. Flyer22 (talk) 17:55, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

Replied on my talk page, of course. Flyer22 (talk) 03:17, 11 April 2009 (UTC)
I've removed both tags based on WP:SIZE and the basic manuel of style amoung biographies of living people, since the article as of yet violates neither. According to WP:SIZE: For stylistic purposes, only the main body prose (excluding links, see also, reference and footnote sections, and lists/tables) should be counted, since the point is to limit the size of the main body of prose. What this means is that with an article that is 71 KB in size, propbably only half of that is what is actually read on screen; the extra data is the citations and footnotes.
According to Wikipedia:SIZE#No_need_for_haste: Do not take precipitous action the very instant an article exceeds 32 KB overall. There is no need for haste, and the readable prose size should be considered separately from references and other overhead. Discuss the overall topic structure with other editors. Determine whether the topic should be treated as several shorter articles and, if so, how best to organize them. Sometimes an article simply needs to be big to give the subject adequate coverage. Certainly, size is no reason to remove valid and useful information.
It may interest you to review Featured Articles such as Janet Jackson, Michael Jackson, John Frusciante, and John Mayer as examples for biographies of living people (all of which are well over 32 KB). Most featured articles on wikipedia run about 60KB unless the subject is broad enough to require more, and with a subject like Whitney Houston as with other music legends, I believe once it is properly sourced, it may run over 80KB if it is ever promoted to FA. From what I can see, the only problem with Whitney Houston is a lack of sourcing with the information that is present in the article. It would be more benificial to the article to place [citation needed] tags next to sentences that are unsourced or dubious. The Bookkeeper (of the Occult) 00:16, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

Re: The Fame[edit]

First of all, please be civil, there's no need to write in all capitals. I can certainly state that my edits are in accordance with WP:ALBUM. You, however, appear to have missed a few points from WP:Albums#Track listing; it says, "Use a spaced en dash (–) rather than a hyphen (-) as a dividing horizontal punctuation mark before the track length", while you're using an em dash (—), and it's not mentioned anywhere in the page that songwriters should be placed between <small></small>. It should be noted that the guidelines from WP:Albums#Track listing apply for all albums, not only for hip hop albums. Just because a few album articles move away from those guidelines—like the ones you mentioned—it doesn't mean that all others should do the same. Funk Junkie (talk) 18:35, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

They're not my own opinion, they're guidelines imposed by WP:ALBUM. Take a close look at the pattern presented in WP:Albums#Track listing (apart from the verses thing, it does apply for all albums):
  1. "Complete song title" (John Doe, Brian Smith) – 4:23
    • First verse: Name of rapper
    • Second verse: Name of rapper
    • Samples: Name of sample source (preferably including artist, song, and album)
  2. "Complete song title" (Doe, Kelly Kalamazoo) – 3:24
  3. "Complete song title" (Doe, Kalamazoo, Smith, David Whitman) – 2:34
As you can see, you should use an en dash (–), not an em dash (—) like you are doing, and songwriters are not supposed to be placed between <small></small>, not even if there happens to be a featured performer. As for writing Lady Gaga's name at the top, I believe it'll confuse readers because she co-wrote the songs with different people, not with a specific team. If she had written all the songs herself or with one particular person or with a specific team, then it would have been fine to state "All songs written by ... except where noted" at the top. (See Boys in the Trees, Joyful, and London Warsaw New York for a further insight.) Also, each edition has an explanatory paragraph, which may cause readers to miss the information that Gaga co-wrote all the songs. I hope I was able to make my point clearly.

I Look To You[edit]

I have no criticism. I just saw your recent frustrated edit summary and hope you're not letting people on Wikipedia get to you. You try to establish order and keep things logical, but there's a "nation of millions" on WP that is apathetic about that at best. Hope you shake 'em off.

Jay Sean Production credits[edit]

why are you editing jay seans track production credits track listing? what sources are you referring to? as i said before, CONTACT THE RECORD LABEL. I know who produced the records, because I produced them. If you keep changing it, on the 23rd when the album comes out and you see at the production credits, youll see you just created alot of hassle and unnecessary confusion and annoyance for being misinformed. If anything the producers and features you have added (drake, polow da don) are based on hearsay and not on credible sources. stop editing and find another hobby

Busbee[edit]

hello. regarding the credits on the Timabaland song "If We Ever Meet Again." i co-wrote it. and professionally, i am known simply as "busbee." not "Mike Busbee." i also co-wrote "Bad Boy" for Alexandra Burke. please edit re-undo your undo on the Timbaland credit to reflect that. Thank you kindly. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 4trak (talkcontribs) 04:57, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

thank you for your response. i understand you conceptually. except that on the record, i was only credited as "m. busbee" not "mike busbee." either way, that was a mistake by the label.

i sincerely appreciate your diligence for accuracy, i would just kindly request that you would consider that i simply go by "busbee" all the time...when i am producing, when i am writing...period. that is what my friends call me; that is what i am known as professionally. somehow the label was misinformed. as i mentioned, and as you will notice, on "Bad Boys," the label was properly informed and i was credited simply as "busbee," thank you for your help with this. happy holidays! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 4trak (talkcontribs) 01:54, 22 December 2009 (UTC)

Jay Sean album[edit]

Yo, Lil-unique1, I am one of Jay Sean's writers. Although we appreciate the deletion of 'Polow Da Don' as it comes up every time on his pages as he is definitely not a producer on the album, you also delete a lot of information that WE put there. In the future, please don't mess with any edits made by Bobbybass or Jperk219. J-Remy and Bobbybass are indeed the producers of most of 'All or Nothing', (Alan Sampson being the only exception), and the link to Bobbybass is indeed legitimate. Thanks! Hit me back on my Talk page if you feel the need. Sorry, I am not sure I am signing this correctly. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Jperk219 (talkcontribs) 13:55, 16 November 2009 (UTC)

Fine, go to Billboard magazine and look up the list of writers on 'Down' or 'Do You Remember' on the Billboard Hot 100, OR buy "Down" or "Do You Remember" on USA iTunes and click on 'Info'. You will see J. Perkins listed (me) along with J. Skaller (J-Remy), R. Larow (Bobbybass), Jay Sean, Jared Cotter and others as writers on these tracks. You will also see us credited on the album that will be released next Monday the 23rd. I will continue to change the information back. By the way, what source is telling you Polow Da Don produced anything on this album? Who/where is your source? ~~jperk219~~ —Preceding unsigned comment added by Jperk219 (talkcontribs) 17:19, 16 November 2009 (UTC)

Again, fine- just buy the album on Monday the 23rd and you'll see for yourself who has written and produced. This is ridiculous; we, as his producers and writers, want his fans to be able to look him up and get the correct information. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Jperk219 (talkcontribs) 01:01, 19 November 2009 (UTC)

Battlefield[edit]

Discogs does not mention it, he only wrote it. (link) RichV (talk) 18:54, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

Re:Battlefield[edit]

I'm not sure about the UK R&B charts but the Australian Urban chart is just based on exact sales from the main sales chart but are ranked based on that genre. I would not think it was necessary to include this chart because it has already charted on the main chart. As Wikipedia:Record charts does not include the Australian Urban Chart. If we include this chart then it would also allow the "Australian Artist Chart" and "Dance Chart" to be included where it is not necessary because it has already charted on the main chart. FumblingTowardsEcstasy (talk) 15:16, 2 August 2009 (UTC)

I was just following the format from Wikipedia:Record charts, if it was an important chart to include, it would have been mentioned on there. There is no need to be rude. It does not matter how long a user has been editing on Wikipedia for, following the guidelines is the main focus. FumblingTowardsEcstasy (talk) 15:37, 2 August 2009 (UTC)
