When you get the chance, could you possibly do a GA review for Hoodoo Gurus - now occupying the top of the GAN music queue. That's normally where I look first, but I nominated, so I come to my partner in crime. :) Cheers, dihydrogen monoxide (H20) 08:28, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

SFU peer review[edit]

Thank you for your comments! I will keep those suggestions in mind when I next edit the page. Dark Executioner (talk) 19:03, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

Slayer discography[edit]

Hey, I've joined WP:SLAYER. I also ot a really good start on Slayer discography. I don't know as much about the band as you do, so could you write a brief bio of the band in the lead? I'm not sure if you are familiar with discographies but you can look at the ones listed on WP:HMM if you need help. Cheers, —Burningclean [Speak the truth!] 11:17, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

I've got almost all of the charts done but I have a problem: I can't find the music videos and their directors. Do you know them? If so could you add the along with the bio in the lead? Thanks, —Burningclean [Speak the truth!] 21:58, 8 March 2008 (UTC)
I'll take a look later, aside from "Eyes of the Insane" i have no idea about the directors. M3tal H3ad (talk) 04:12, 9 March 2008 (UTC)
Cool, thanks. You aren't on very much anymore, how come? —Burningclean [Speak the truth!] 19:00, 9 March 2008 (UTC)
I got a bio done. That would be great if you could copyedit it and add anything that is needed. After a copyedit it will be ready for FLC. Thanks, —Burningclean [Speak the truth!] 21:53, 9 March 2008 (UTC)
Thank you very much for the barnstar. :D —Burningclean [Speak the truth!] 21:07, 13 March 2008 (UTC)
I have a question: do you and LuciferMorgan know each other personally? Also, Your talk page archiver has been deleted. —Burningclean [Speak the truth!] 02:10, 15 March 2008 (UTC)
I'm not sure. I have a couple of articles that I'd like for GA (Mastodon (band), Municipal Waste (band)) in mind and maby sometime Chevelle for FA, but other than that I'm not sure what to do. I think you and I took care of all the good bands! What about you? Maby we should collaberate on something. I'm tempted to rewrite Trivium (band), despite hating them, just to swipe the wikiproject off its feet. I also want United Abominations for FA. It's at GAN right now. —Burningclean [Speak the truth!] 02:16, 16 March 2008 (UTC)
I'm kind of board on wiki right now. I'm back to doing tedious stuff. Discographies are really easy though. The thing I don't like, yet at the same time like, about them is that they are an easy way to get something featured. Trivium would't be too bad. Their music is great but I can't stand Heavy, his vocals and lyrics suck. Do you want to colaberate on that? I'm on spring break right now so I will probably have some time on my hands. —Burningclean [Speak the truth!] 02:27, 16 March 2008 (UTC)
I began working on the "Rise to Fame" section in my sandbox. Would you mind checking out Slayer discography and commenting at Wikipedia:Featured list candidates/Slayer discography? —Burningclean [Speak the truth!] 02:42, 16 March 2008 (UTC)
That's okay. They are really easy. I should be able to work on Trivium during this week. —Burningclean [Speak the truth!] 02:29, 17 March 2008 (UTC)

Hi mate, I hope all is well. Since the above is likely to pass FLC, can you amend the classification parameters at WP:SLAYER? It isn't an article, so isn't an FAC. If it passes FLC though, there's currently no parameters for FLs. LuciferMorgan (talk) 08:09, 20 March 2008 (UTC)

It's now been promoted, so can you rectify it? The discography is in no shape or form an FA, so shouldn't be tagged as one. There should be parameters for FL. If I knew how to do it, I would. LuciferMorgan (talk) 10:20, 21 March 2008 (UTC)

Hoodoo Gurus GA review part 1[edit]

Hoodoo Gurus Lead has been re-written in accordance with your comments at Talk:Hoodoo Gurus. More refs inserted. Formation re: who plays what added; quote incorporated into prose with ref; ref deleted. I believe major issues raised in your part 1 review have been addressed.Shaidar cuebiyar (talk) 04:12, 10 March 2008 (UTC)

part 2[edit]

I think I've covered the majority of part 2 (except "My Girl" video & significance of the dog). Greater detail at Talk:Hoodoo Gurus.Shaidar cuebiyar (talk) 07:24, 12 March 2008 (UTC)

I got work in 20 minutes so I'll review it tomorrow. M3tal H3ad (talk) 07:29, 12 March 2008 (UTC)

part 3[edit]

I think Dan Arndt and I have covered nearly every point you raised in Part 3. Some small fiddling with refs might still be needed if you're not happy with the new ones supplied. If so, could the hold status (due to run out March 16?) be extended to allow us to find more suitable ones. Speaking for myself, I am unlikely to do any more work on the Hoodoo Gurus article over the weekend.Shaidar cuebiyar (talk) 04:57, 14 March 2008 (UTC)

I believe that we have addressed all of the various points - any other comments? Dan arndt (talk) 04:37, 17 March 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for the review, I thought I knew about editing an article but I see that I've learnt a great deal more by being reviewed.Shaidar cuebiyar (talk) 05:09, 18 March 2008 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Damage Plan - Wake Up.ogg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Damage Plan - Wake Up.ogg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page. STBotI (talk) 10:05, 13 March 2008 (UTC)

Re: Dave Lombardo[edit]

Yeah, it'd be great to get Lombardo to FA. I'll keep my eye on the FAC, and help where possible. Having said that, it'd be better to concentrate on one FA at a time. I heard A7X and Atreyu don't see eye to eye, and as for BFMV... well, they're from Bridgend - an hour on the bus from my location. Oddly enough, didn't even notice your message. LuciferMorgan (talk) 09:23, 14 March 2008 (UTC)


Im here again. The peer review on this was already closed. I've seeked help from other users and, fortunately, LuciferMorgan did a review and copyedited the article. Is it up for FAC now or any problems? --Efe (talk) 08:00, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

I left some comments. Please check. --Efe (talk) 09:01, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

Just passed the article. Comments/Supports/Opposes are welcomed. --Efe (talk) 07:10, 17 March 2008 (UTC)


Hi! Would you look at the Strapping Young Lad article, it's currently at peer review, if you happen to have some free time? And, of course, interested in bringing this up to FA level. Thanks. Gocsa (talk) 21:53, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

Sure, give me a day or two and I'll take a look. M3tal H3ad (talk) 03:48, 17 March 2008 (UTC)


Hi mate. Just thought I'd pop in and say that the article needs a minor cleanup, more specifically two recently added items of news in one section. LuciferMorgan (talk) 22:47, 17 March 2008 (UTC)

Must of missed it when they added it, thanks. M3tal H3ad (talk) 03:30, 18 March 2008 (UTC)

GA Review : Hoodoo Gurus[edit]

Well all the dead links have been fixed or replaced - all the points raised in your last review (part 3) I believe have been addressed - so hopefully we have an article that meets the grade - appreciate all the work you've done to date in giving a good critical review. If you think there is anything else left to do - let us know. Dan arndt (talk) 00:02, 18 March 2008 (UTC)

GA Award.png The Good Article Medal of Merit 
For an excellent GA review on Hoodoo Gurus. dihydrogen monoxide (H2O) 09:03, 18 March 2008 (UTC)


Hey dude, I got most of Trivium done. The first section is in need of a rewrite as well as the lead. I'll leave you and J Milburn to do a little work, otherwise it isn't a collaberation. Cheers, —Burningclean [Speak the truth!] 00:58, 19 March 2008 (UTC)

Comparisons to Metallica? I usually only incorporate one review. Sorry, I didn't realize it wasn't ready. I'll try adding some more stuff. Burningclean [speak] 20:47, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

Congrats on getting number eight. I knew you would be the first to get this new barnstar. Keep it up dude. \m/ —Burningclean [Speak the truth!] 01:46, 19 March 2008 (UTC)
It is doing well. There is a lot of debate though. I hope i can get just a couple more supports, that would seel the deal. Did you see Trivium? I'll be off for a bit, my brother wants to use the computor. —Burningclean [Speak the truth!] 02:03, 19 March 2008 (UTC)
I'm back. What else should we do to Trivium? —Burningclean [Speak the truth!] 03:02, 19 March 2008 (UTC)

In Need Of Wiki-Help[edit]

Hey, it's Dark Executioner. I'm sure you know that I'm trying to get SFU up to GA. It's coming along slowly but surely. However, I'm afraid that I've ran into a situation that I don't know quite what to do. Burningclean helped me put an image onto the page, but he seems unable to help me with music samples.

I want to put a clip of "Doomsday" in the article, but I have no idea how to do that. I have the song saved in my Windows Media Player, can I get it from there?

Dogpile is another source of getting song clips, and I have two cover songs of SFU saved onto my documents. Please help me out with this! Dark Executioner (talk) 23:16, 19 March 2008 (UTC)

Yes, Skeletor2112 explained to me how to do it, but when I tried the websites he listed for myself, it just didn't work. I typed in Six Feet Under in the search option, and no results were found. I only got music clips from the HBO program and weird techno remixes to SFU songs (huh?!). A few other sites had some songs, but I got uber-confused on how to Wiki-fy them. The format confused me. Just like I did when I tried to upload images.

...which is why I'm leaving it up to you guys, the pros, to do all this technical stuff. I can help with sourcing, infobox repairing and finding new information on bands, but beyond that I'm pretty limited with what I can do here. Dark Executioner (talk) 13:33, 21 March 2008 (UTC)

Oh yeah, and I also can't use sites that you have to pay for the MP3 clips. My parents won't let me buy anything offline. So that's a major limiting factor as well. Dark Executioner (talk) 13:35, 21 March 2008 (UTC)

User:M3tal H3ad/Slayer[edit]

Hey dude, there is something wrong with the header of User:M3tal H3ad/Slayer. I don't know what's up with it and I don't want to screw it up. Slayer discography is FL. I'm glad to be a part of the project now. —Burningclean [Speak the truth!] 19:59, 20 March 2008 (UTC)

What would you think of starting a portal for Slayer. With all of the featured things the project has, we could easily make one. —Burningclean [Speak the truth!] 01:18, 21 March 2008 (UTC)


Hi mate, got a favour to ask. Currently, I'm working on an article here. However, one of the citations I've made (to an interview at seems to have something wrong with it. I cannot find what's wrong, so could you take a look? Thanks. LuciferMorgan (talk) 12:24, 24 March 2008 (UTC)

Thanks, much appreciated. LuciferMorgan (talk) 07:50, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

United Abominations[edit]

Hey, would you mind reviewing at Wikipedia:Peer review/United Abominations/archive2? I wan't it for FA. Thanks, Burningclean [speak] 01:06, 30 March 2008 (UTC)


The article is now featured. Thanks for the help and leave me a message if you have more concerns. --Efe (talk) 01:44, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

Take care![edit]

Hi, I am posting here on Wikipedia for the last time today as this user. I have had fun editing pages here, and have met some cool people, but I'm afraid that if I didn't retire from Wikipedia today, then I'd be doing it either on or near June 26th, 2008. Why? Because I am leaving for boot camp on that day to join the U.S. Navy.

Do not feel abandoned if you are someone that I have gotten to know a little here. I'm not doing this to be a dick, only because I have to. I really don't have much time to edit here anymore, since I'm so busy getting prepared physically and taking care of the month and a half of schoolwork that I have left.

If I ever get the chance to resume editing here someday... then I will.

Until then, this is Dark Executioner's last stand. Dark Executioner (talk) 19:07, 3 April 2008 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Strapping Young Lad[edit]

Hi! Just wanted to let you know that Strapping Young Lad is a featured article candidate, so feel free to comment! Gocsa (talk) 14:25, 12 April 2008 (UTC)


Just an FYI: I did a big copyedit to Aliens (film). The biggest change was I restructured the reviews section so that the reviews are presented in chronological order, and changed the references to direct links to the full reviews instead of just the rotten tomatoes review page. I feel that makes them more transparent, and also it helped me find the dates the reviews were published. I feel like it's probably ready for a FA review, if you want to nominate it. Have a good day! --IllaZilla (talk) 07:01, 18 April 2008 (UTC)

So tell me old friend...[edit]

Why are you not an admin? Eight FA's and twenty GA's. RfA voting is overflowing with "oppose" voters who are against "vandal hunters" getting the mop. The "new way" is that "true editors", article writers, FA builders, etc are the ones most fit for the full toolbox. I can think of no one better. Anger22 (Talk 2 22) 23:00, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

Black Sabbath peer review[edit]

Hey dude, I finally finished my first draft of the Black Sabbath page, and stuck it up for peer review. I'd apreciate if you could take a look at the article, its long as hell, but so is their career! Thanks \m/ Skeletor2112 (talk) 11:23, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

Bullet for My Valentine[edit]

Just a reminder, removing tags without resolving the issue is not good editing practice. In future is you can resolve the issue feel free to remove the tags. --neonwhite user page talk 13:50, 15 May 2008 (UTC)

Just a reminder, you shouldn't add tags for sources that are in the article (if you actually read it) in in the future you can resolve the issue and be WP:BOLD by adding them yourself. M3tal H3ad (talk) 04:44, 16 May 2008 (UTC)moved this here, i like to keep convos. together on one page
As i didn't add any of the sources for this article it's immpossible to know what info they all contain. So using the tags help someone who did to rectify the problem. --neonwhite user page talk 13:53, 16 May 2008 (UTC)


Despite your warning to this editor, they are still adding chunks of quotes to articles - take a look at Tomb of the Mutilated for example. If you were to follow through and make a report as regards this editor, I would support any measures preventing Jumanji656 from continuing to do this. Hope you're well. LuciferMorgan (talk) 21:24, 19 May 2008 (UTC)

Slayer Project[edit]

I intend to purchase the McIver book next month, and eventually get some of the other articles to at least GA or FA. Do you intend to nominate Lombardo for FA, and possibly Haunting the Chapel? LuciferMorgan (talk) 09:17, 29 May 2008 (UTC)

I'm well, and hope you are also. It'd be great to get Slayer to FT status, though I think there may be one or two problem articles. However, I'm hoping that those problem articles will rightfully be seen as having limited subject matter. Once my copy arrives, I'll likely try working on Seasons. I'm also hoping it has biographical information on King etc. Nice to see you around by the way. LuciferMorgan (talk) 14:17, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Angel of Death clip.ogg)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Angel of Death clip.ogg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box.

Quick qestion about Reign in Blood[edit]

Hey, how did you find out who wrote the songs for the album? I mean it's specified who composed the music, and who wrote the lyrics. I'm just wondering, and as you are deeply involved in most of Slayer's albums, I assumed you'd know that info. Rockk3r Spit it Out! 20:02, 14 January 2009 (UTC)

There is currently a discussion on the project's talk page regarding a proposal to merge the project into a task force of either WikiProject Horror or WikiProject Science Fiction. As a project member, your input would be greatly appreciated in this discussion. Do you think the project ought to be merged into a task force, or remain separate? If you are in favor of a merger, which WikiProject do you think should be the parent? Please comment at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Alien#Task force merger.

GA Sweeps invitation[edit]

Hello, I hope you are doing well. I am sending you this message since you are a member of the GA WikiProject. I would like to invite you to consider helping with the GA sweeps process. Sweeps helps to ensure that the oldest GAs still meet the criteria, and improve the quality of GAs overall. Unfortunately, last month only two articles were reviewed. This is definitely a low point after our peak at the beginning of the process when 163 articles were reviewed in September 2007. After nearly two years, the running total has just passed the 50% mark. In order to expediate the reviewing, several changes have been made to the process. A new worklist has been created, detailing which articles are left to review. All exempt and previously reviewed articles have already been removed from the list. Instead of reviewing by topic, you can consider picking and choosing whichever articles interest you.

We are always looking for new members to assist with the remaining articles, so if you are interested or know of anybody that can assist, please visit the GA sweeps page. In addition, for every member that reviews 100 articles or has a significant impact on the process, s/he will get an award when they reach that threshold. If only 14 editors achieve this feat starting now, we would be done with Sweeps! Of course, having more people reviewing less articles would be better for all involved, so please consider asking others to help out. Feel free to stop by and only review a few articles, something's better than nothing! Take a look at the list, and see what articles interest you. Let's work to complete Sweeps so that efforts can be fully focused on the backlog at GAN. If you have any questions about the process, reviewing, or need help with a particular article, please contact me or OhanaUnited and we'll be happy to help. --Happy editing!

Alien vs. Predator on main page[edit]

Hi! It doesn't look like you're active on Wikipedia anymore but I thought you might be interested to know that Alien vs. Predator (film) will be today's featured article on the main page on July 23.

Main page appearance[edit]

Hello! This is a note to let the main editors of this article know that it will be appearing as the main page featured article on May 22, 2011. You can view the TFA blurb at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/May 22, 2011. If you think it is necessary to change the main date, you can request it with the featured article director Raul654 (talk · contribs) or at Wikipedia talk:Today's featured article/requests. If the previous blurb needs tweaking, you might change it—following the instructions of the suggested formatting. If this article needs any attention or maintenance, it would be preferable if that could be done before its appearance on the Main Page so Wikipedia doesn't look bad. :D Thanks!
