Comments on organs[edit]

Hi. I replied to your comment at Talk:Positive_organ#Various_Historical_Organs. Tomgally 05:31, 17 December 2005 (UTC)

Viola da gamba[edit]

Thanks for your message. This was my first attempt at creating templates and I thought I had followed the instructions exactly but hadn't checked the instruments page. I think the problem is now fixed, but let me know if you can spot any other problems with it. Bluewave 08:21, 17 December 2005 (UTC)

Be bold![edit]

I'd make a note on the talk page that you want to respect other editors' work, but that you intend to be bold, respectfully. Then go ahead and make the changes. If the anonymous editor objects, he/she will let you know, hopefully in a civil fashion. You may be able to work together to make a fantastic article. Have fun! And Merry Christmas!

re: Henry Purcell image[edit]

Hi - Would you be interested in uploading image:Henry_Purcell.jpg to commons (under a different name)? Sounds like this, followed by deleting the local copy of the image, is the solution to your problem. After it's uploaded on commons (and the references fixed), the local copy can certainly be deleted by listing it at Wikipedia:Images and media for deletion. "Duplicate exists at commons" might be sufficient for speedy delete as well, but I'm not sure about this. If you're interested in using and/or providing images for articles, you should probably have a login at commons anyway - so this might be a useful exercise for you. -- Rick Block (talk) 04:03, 2 January 2006 (UTC)

Good job. I would fix the links now, because one the local picture is deleted, they will point to a different image (of the same guy, but a nontheless...). If you need any help on commons, feel free to ask me (I can but try!). I have the same username there. cheers, pfctdayelise 10:36, 4 January 2006 (UTC)

Venus and Adonis[edit]

Hi Makemi! First of all, welcome, it's good to have someone else interested in early music; I particularly appreciate that you're looking at 17th century English music, an area I haven't really touched yet (there's a lot more needing to be written!) Nice job on V&A; I'll have a closer look when I'm home from work and have access to my books. (I also have that Grout History of Opera, but like to cross-check it with something else). Happy editing! Antandrus (talk) 19:51, 18 January 2006 (UTC)

Welcome too from those of us at the Opera Project Wikipedia:WikiProject Opera.
We are working on an Opera Corpus page and would be grateful for significant early opera titles to add to the list. It's at Wikipedia:WikiProject Opera/Opera Corpus. I have just added Venus and Adonis! Regards.

3RR and Page protection[edit]

3RR does not apply to reverting vandalism. (NOT content disputes! - then 3RR does apply.)

To request page protection, if a page is being repeatedly vandalized - more than editors can keep up with, say one per minute - request page protection at WP:RFPP.

Hope this helps! KillerChihuahua?!? 20:23, 18 January 2006 (UTC)

3RR[edit]

Reverting vandalism does not count towards a violation of the 3RR. so you can keep reverting those anons. If you want the page protected, you can ask at WP:RFP. --GraemeL (talk) 20:24, 18 January 2006 (UTC)

Audio Recording Lists[edit]

Thanks for your message. I am fairly new here myself and I haven't found any wikipedia lists etc. I have been wondering about this as I would like to do a page on The Record of Singing a famous compilation of vocal recordings of the 78-era. (I'd also like to work out an effective way of referring to recordings at the bottom of the opera articles, which doesn't involve ephemeral links etc.)

If you make any progress on this please let me know. I'd be delighted to know more.

Keep in touch and good luck with your research!

Kleinzach 18:33, 19 January 2006 (UTC)

historical organs[edit]

Hello! Yeah, those articles are rather obtuse, aren't they? I will take a look at improving them, although I don't know a whole lot about them; I might recommend asking User:Cor anglais 16 about them, too - he might be more familiar with them. Thanks for the welcome! -Sesquialtera II 22:26, 20 January 2006 (UTC)

A conversation about Spam[edit]

i thought i could submit articles i was just submitting articles in accordance with their topic... and i thought i could freely submit them ... why put me as spam?

You are only allowed to add articles which are relevant, useful, and notable. Generally wikipedia eschews blogs unless they are particularly important. It is also highly suspicious when a user adds a lot of links all in a row from the same non-notable website. If everyone put every link they thought was vaguely interesting into the article on, say Google, the page would be ridiculously huge. For more info on appropriate and inappropriate outside links see External link guidelines. Makemi 07:14, 23 January 2006 (UTC)

i cant submit my site now? my boss told me to submit every article we have to the topics related to it... what will i do now? should i submit still the articles we have? or you will put me into spam if i do? Intiendes 07:44, 23 January 2006 (UTC)

No, you may not submit the links now. That is precisely the type of thing we want to avoid with our rules about spam. Makemi 07:49, 23 January 2006 (UTC)

i am confuse i think the articles that our writer wrote is a good article... why not accept it if it is related on the topic i posted it in? or would you give me a chance if i choose specifically the article that caters the very topic? and not just a part of it? Intiendes 08:46, 23 January 2006 (UTC)

The problem is that you obviously have a stake in getting these links on these pages. That's a pretty strong conflict of interest. Your adding these links to these pages is inherently WP:POV. If someone not connected with the website or company feels strongly about adding a link to your site from a page, and gives a strong argument on the talk page, that might be allowed. As it stands, you really can't add these links, and that's probably not going to change. Makemi 17:47, 23 January 2006 (UTC)

Fairy Queen[edit]

How cool is it that you made an article on the Fairy Queen! At Oberlin, we are putting on our own production, set to go up in a couple weeks. The advisor, Steven Plank, studied with Curtis Price, and we are making sure everything is historically informed. My girlfriend is designing the costumes, and I have several friends in the cast. Neat that you just made the article today...

Also, I did see your comment on the Grove Music Online template talk page, and it seemed fine..thanks for your help with templating. -Sesquialtera II 23:04, 25 January 2006 (UTC)

templates[edit]

Yeah, we have a couple copies of Grove 2001. I'll update them when I'm in the library next. And, indeed, they are doing some serious Baroque dance. It should be excellent. -Sesquialtera II 04:31, 27 January 2006 (UTC)

OA Lodge List[edit]

Didn't mean to delete your AFD. It was overwritten when I finished an edit. It was only after I read the "code" on the next page that I even noticed it. Yes, I'm new (hope this is the right place to say this...). You might be right on the need to delete; I just expanded it from three to 50 states, with a ton of edits (I'd save the page, then see that they were in alpha order). Robhmac 07:17, 26 January 2006 (UTC)

Nikola Šećeroski[edit]

Greetings! I haven't done this for a while, so give me a minute to figure it out again. I'll close the debate with "keep, withdrawn by nominator" or something similar. Antandrus (talk) 03:11, 1 February 2006 (UTC)

Done. Happy editing! Antandrus (talk) 03:22, 1 February 2006 (UTC)
LOL! You're welcome! Some of these vandals make me laugh... one of the joys of RC patrol. Happy editing, Antandrus (talk) 04:12, 2 February 2006 (UTC)

Re: Speedy Deletion[edit]

Any contested deletion should be moved onto AfD instead of speedy deletion, that's how I interpret it. --Ichiro (会話|+|投稿記録|メール) 06:45, 2 February 2006 (UTC)

New opera recordings category[edit]

Hi, I have just made a new category for audio and video recordings of opera on 78, LP, CD, DVD etc.: Category:Opera recordings. Hope this helps.

thanks for reverting the changes to the Herveys[edit]

Hi Makemi. I am not a very technical person, nor indeed even online permanently as many Wikipedians seem to be, so I would like to thank you for your work on my behalf. You have been usefully reverting the changes that an anonymous user persists in making to "John Hervey" (see how untechnical I am -- I don't even know how to do the links, and copy and paste didn't work). You may also like to know that the same user (or I suppose I should say ISP number) has been doing the same thing to the article about this character's father, "Victor Hervey". If you would keep an eye on this and revert any inappropriate changes that Anonymous makes, I would be grateful. Thanks. BrainyBabe 16:30, 2 February 2006 (UTC)

Makemi[edit]

Any idea why my info on IV was deleted???
I wonder why would any one delete my entries in Wikipedia on Information Visualization. I wish you leave a message for me if you have any doubts.
I would appreciate cooperation and compassion in dealing with content contributed by others.
I do understand what is spam. My scholarly blog link, on Info Visualization, that was deleted, is NOT a spam. I would request you to restore my content. (Mtindia 02:43, 3 February 2006 (UTC));

Stop[edit]

Stop screwing Chopin's birthday you uneducated ignorant.

Chopin[edit]

Thanks for the note, I have to admit that I didn't read very far into the article. If you'd like to edit the article to conform to consensus I'll back you on it. If he continues to attack and make personal attacks I'll take care of it. But please keep civil and take the high road, that'll give you the leverage you need...and it's the right thing to do anyway ;0 I'm sure you would anyway....Rx StrangeLove 22:07, 3 February 2006 (UTC)


Image not relevant[edit]

Sorry, when all the images on the George W. Bush page have some public meaning in terms of his presidency, that one does not. Also, threats over legitimate editing are not allowed on Wikipedia. 67.163.110.126 05:07, 4 February 2006 (UTC)

Gabe Rivera[edit]

Hi, Makemi. As I was patrolling Category:Candidates for speedy deletion, I came upon Gabe Rivera, which you nominated for speedy deletion. It appears to me to have enough of an assertion of notability that it must go through Wikipedia:Articles for deletion. I've added it there, and if you'd like to comment on the article or explain your reasons for deletion, the discussion is at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Gabe Rivera. Thanks for your help. —Cleared as filed. 13:37, 4 February 2006 (UTC)

JI/ horn deletion[edit]

I moved this to Talk:Just intonation because I thought others might want to comment on this. Rainwarrior 00:08, 5 February 2006 (UTC)

Makemi[edit]

As you suggested I had the topic for "discussion." Did you read a comment from an editor on my IV content? Restore the item please. (Mtindia 13:53, 5 February 2006 (UTC));

Faure[edit]

Nice job on Gabriel Faure! It's a rare pleasure to see a non-minor edit in our "classical music" area, and this is a bio that has needed enhancing for a while now. Happy editing, Antandrus (talk) 00:53, 7 February 2006 (UTC)

Song list on Articles for Deletion[edit]

I got there from the main AfD page, listing currently-up-for-deletion articles. The template was not on that page at the time I looked at it, when the article was still fresh at AfD. Wiwaxia 11:40, 7 February 2006 (UTC)

Joan of Arc[edit]

Hi, I'd like to thank you for your contribution to the article. I've opened up a request for peer review. Wikipedia:Peer review/Joan of Arc/archive2 Would appreciate your feedback. Best wishes, Durova 03:04, 10 February 2006 (UTC)

James Urbaniak[edit]

James Urbaniak himself has stated that he thought his old entry was laughable. This one is based on information from his livejournal, and hopefully the man himself will like it more. Also when deleting information, you deleted certain facts which are in fact necessary, such as the Drama Desk Award, and I should note that those lines improvised are in fact true.

I agree that the article needs some serious revision. Unfortunately your revision was completely unencyclopedic, did not follow any form standards, and removed all links. I tried to look at it to see if there was important info to pull out, but it was difficult, and I admit that I took the easy route. I'll try to see if I can rework it a bit. Makemi 19:44, 10 February 2006 (UTC)

abusive e-mail[edit]

If you receive an abusive e-mail you do also have the option of complaining to the e-mail service to get them to cancel that e-mail account. -- Curps 22:18, 10 February 2006 (UTC)

Reply to your accusation[edit]

I did not create two accounts at one time. That other account is someone else. You are confused. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Aculag (talk • contribs) .

I did not mean to accuse you of anything. I simply asked the reason for creating two accounts at once (one of which has already been involved in vandalism). How did User:Cantaclaro know about your userpage so soon, and why was he so easily confused about whether he was "he" or "I" ? Hmm? Makemi 05:08, 11 February 2006 (UTC)

Ok, Get Over It[edit]

Dude, we're friends and both created accounts at the same time so we could edit the wiki. There's no great mystery here, and you're not going to win some award from the mods for being some super sleuth, so cut it out already. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Aculag (talk • contribs) .

Little Church Around the Corner[edit]

While open to discussion or following a precedent, I did rather carefully consider which name to use for the article and felt that as the name Little Church is the much more common name in use by the general public that perhaps it was the one to use. Even their web page uses "littlechurch.org" however as before, I am open to discussion Doc 08:25, 12 February 2006 (UTC)

G.R.S. Mead[edit]

The author of this article has removed the AfD notice on the article. I didn't notice your official withdrawal of AfD-ness on that article, but I'm hesitant to replace it in interest of not biting the newcomers. Would you check it out? Thanks, Makemi 06:28, 12 February 2006 (UTC)

I just withdrew the AFD, thanks for the note. xaosflux Talk/CVU 17:35, 12 February 2006 (UTC)

"Flarians?"[edit]

Regarding the article "Flarians", I cannot find any reference pertaining to both "Flarian" and "Orc" in Google. This leads me to believe that the article is just made-up information, invented by the poster. I'll let you call it. --MasTer of Puppets Peek! 01:38, 13 February 2006 (UTC)

Reverting[edit]

(copied from Tvaughn05's Talk Page.)

Thanks for doing RC patrol. When reverting vandalism, please try to make sure you get all of it. I usually do this by comparing the current version to the last version by a logged-in user. Check it out [1]. I've done the same before :) Makemi 01:18, 16 February 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know, I was reverting a bunch of changes in a really small time. =) -- Tvaughn05e (Talk)(Contribs) 23:28, 16 February 2006 (UTC)

No hard feelings, but check WP:NOR for why this page probably got deleted. CrypticBacon 06:46, 17 February 2006 (UTC)

My apologies, I didn't read the article history clearly enough. Take care! :-) CrypticBacon 06:53, 17 February 2006 (UTC)

Leadbelly[edit]

Sorry about that, sometimes I forget that someone else might read the occasional edit summary and my snarky comments can be confusing. Here's my edit, with the removed, misspelled, mispunctuated sentence. I was just asking if anyone knew if it was true that The White Stripes occasionally use Leadbelly's Boll Weevil to finish off sets.--TheGrza 22:08, 17 February 2006 (UTC)

Reversion on Ward Churchill[edit]

I didn't understand your reversion at [2]. The addition of a link to an article by Churchill seems perfectly reasonable to me, not vandalism in any case. I guess you could argue about whether every article link by the subject of the bio needs to be included, but that doesn't seem like an automatic rollback thing. I added that link back in, but in a more appropriate section, and using the {cite journal} template rather than as a plain link.

Followup: looking more closely, I see that the anonymous IP address seems to have added a bunch of links to the same journal, and you rolled them all back. While it's quite possible this editor has some association with that journal, the link concerning Annie Sprinkle also seems quite germane to the article. It's not linkcruft or advertising if all the links really are germane, methinks. And more generously, perhaps the anon was just reading through LiP and though "Hey, there's good background here on several people with WP biographies", which seems fair enough to me. Lulu of the Lotus-Eaters 18:58, 20 February 2006 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Chris Johnson (Poet)[edit]

As prod is specifically and exclusively for uncontroversial deletions, you aren't supposed to restore the notice, even if they did nothing to address the concerns. Any objection sends it to AfD. Which is where it is now. NickelShoe 20:22, 22 February 2006 (UTC)

DYK[edit]

Updated DYK query Did you know? has been updated. A fact from the article Trobairitz, which you recently created, has been featured in that section on the Main Page. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the "Did you know?" talk page.

Heh, unfortunately I can't change that, AFAIK. Unless maybe I restored and deleted it again. But I guess it shouldn't be too much of a problem to point people to the right AfD discussion, should they cry foul.--Shanel 19:14, 1 March 2006 (UTC)

LiP Magazine and spam[edit]

Hey Makemi, I recently checked in with two editorial assistants at LiP who were working on a project to link relevant articles we've published to various Wikipedia pages. After looking at their history, I can see why you immediately took most of them down! Neither of them are familiar with Wikipedia, and didn't realize they were, essentially, spamming these pages. Rest assured that it was not their intention to do so, and that they were honestly trying to provide relevant resources for Wikipedia readers. LiP is an all-volunteer project, so it's not like anyone was trying to make money off linking to our website. I've told them both to only post LiP pages in the future after better aquainting themselves with Wikipedia and being certain that it (a) is in the right place and (b) is *really* something that would be beneficial as an external resource to the page they link it to. Thanks!--DinoMo 07:38, 3 March 2006 (UTC)

Vit Zvanovec[edit]

Hi Makemi -- I left Ross a note and also left a comment on the AfD page. I think you're right about how to handle the article, and it's an interesting issue: it's outside of the jurisdiction of our ArbCom, and I honestly don't know where the best place to handle the conflict would be. Wikimedia Foundation maybe? The article implies he's already tried to get them interested. Thanks for trying to help him anyway. Cheers, Antandrus (talk) 03:58, 5 March 2006 (UTC)

questions[edit]

Greetings! Answering your questions: if the articles haven't changed between 1980 and the online Grove, I think one reference is enough. Sometimes though they are different articles; for example right now I'm writing one on Cornelis Verdonck and there is good, and different, content in both. (I only used the 1980 Grove until I got myself a subscription to the online one at the beginning of last year.) Regarding being an admin: the edit counter was down this afternoon, but have you been here 3 months yet, and have, say, 2000 edits to the article space? Three months seems to be the "golden ratio" for getting by, especially if you haven't been in any nasty conflicts (and I certainly don't remember any). I will nominate you myself at 3 months if you like! I think you'd be a great admin. Antandrus (talk) 23:31, 5 March 2006 (UTC)

Trobairitz[edit]

Very fine work: I finally got around to looking at this article (prowling around redlinks on my to-do-list, and checking what-links-here). It reads well, is extremely interesting, and I learned something from it. Strange, I read through the long section on the troubadours in Ezra Pound's The Spirit of Romance, and didn't find a single mention of a woman except as an object of a song by a man (maybe, writing in 1910, he just didn't know about them?) Interesting stuff: thank you for spending the time to write the article! Cheers, Antandrus (talk) 05:08, 11 March 2006 (UTC)

Hi, I just noticed that in your Request for Adminship, you stated that "Godmode light has it's problems". I just wanted to let you know that in the past few days, a code change in the MediaWiki software broke the functionality of certain conditions of Godmode-light. To fix this, go to edit your monobook. Copy all of the code of godmode-light.js, and paste it right in your monobook. Then, go to User:Lightdarkness/GML Fix and read the instructions, then you'll be all set! If you have any questions, let me know on my talk page. Cheers! --lightdarkness (talk) 15:55, 18 March 2006 (UTC)

hal Turner[edit]

Fair enough — I was probably feeling irritable anyway, and seing the subject of the article remove negative comments about himself didn't go down well. I expect that, if the accusations have any substance, they'll be replaced with citations. --Mel Etitis (Μελ Ετητης) 10:16, 19 March 2006 (UTC)

you say pratica, I say prattica[edit]

I think it's one of those inconsistent Italian spellings. Google is about equally mixed; Bukofzer's Music in the Baroque has prattica; this [4] has both spellings; modern Italian seems to have it with one t. My Harvard Dictionary of Music has prattica. I've seen it both ways; I think it's ok to leave it with a single T and make redirects. Thanks for writing prima pratica -- you caught an important redlink!  :-) Antandrus (talk) 02:22, 20 March 2006 (UTC)

I think leave it as is (prima pratica). Cheers! Antandrus (talk) 02:28, 20 March 2006 (UTC)


Charles Ives[edit]

Thanks for your contributions to the Ives article and comment at Wikipedia:Featured article removal candidates/Charles Ives. You have not voted though on if the page should be FARCd. It would be helpful when reaching a concensus if you did. Thanks. Giano | talk 07:25, 21 March 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for adding the citations to the Charles Ives article and thus improving it. Hyacinth 12:10, 22 March 2006 (UTC)

Copyvios[edit]

I'd tag them as copyvios rather than AfD them, but when I do that, the user takes the tag off of it or blanks them. This guy really needs to be blocked, he has made thousands of edits today, almost all of the copyvios or AfD removals. --Descendall 06:35, 22 March 2006 (UTC)

Re: Handel & Trobairitz[edit]

Way to move the works! Did you see the silliness on the talk page? Oh well. By the way, and article that I mostly wrote, Trobairitz, is in Peer Review right now. It would be great if you could take a look at it. Makemi 22:11, 23 March 2006 (UTC)

Nice to hear from you again! Yes, I figured we might as well have uniformity among the composers' pages.
Trobairitz: I haven't read through the article yet, but a quick glance says a few things. The notes jump out at me first; generally, two sections are used, Notes and References; the latter gets all the publisher info for the "good" books, while the articles that only have an item or two that are relevant have their publisher info in Notes. Page numbers would be really good (although I'm not quite sure what to do with online things). I think you only have to cite a source's full info once, and can just refer to it by a short name thereafter (e.g. "Grove Music Online" is fine, I think). Sources could probably fit as a subheading of References.
Aside from those sort of administrivia things, I agree with Antandrus that musical examples would be nice. :) Also, the list at the end kind of jumps out at me a bit- not quite sure what to do with it, as a reader. I'll carefully peruse the article text when I get the chance. :) —Sesquialtera II (talk) 22:26, 23 March 2006 (UTC)
My apologies: I looked through Wikipedia:Footnotes, and there is no way to do what I suggested. I really prefer a different style, e.g. Johann Sebastian Bach; I understand the logic of the new <ref> system, but I really think that the {{ref}} was much easier to manage, and every footnote had a specific purpose and source page. Any idea where this kind of thing could be discussed? I'm guessing WP:Village pump somewhere, but not sure.
Also, I changed all of the dates in Trobairitz to February 11 2006, since none of those articles have changed recently (or, indeed, likely since 2001). If that bothers you, feel free to re-add the specific dates. —Sesquialtera II (talk) 15:57, 24 March 2006 (UTC)

Trobairitz, and other things[edit]

Afraid my interest in early music is more interest than knowledge, being more of a 20th century person... I looked it over and rather like it. I can't think of anything to suggest; it reads well.

Oh, and I ran across Antandrus's talk page and noticed a couple lovely sound files posted there. Wow, a real singer on Wikipedia—those are lovely! Nice to hear from you and best of luck with the admin mop. :-) (Afraid I spend more time with that than in classical music lately, or I'd've said hello sooner...)

Hello[edit]

Thanks, I'll try again sometime later. Thanks for all your help!

Thanks again! Let's be friends. Information Center 06:23, 24 March 2006 (UTC)

Congratulations![edit]

Congratulations! It's my pleasure to let you know that, consensus being reached, you are now an administrator. You should read the relevant policies and other pages linked to from the administrators' reading list before carrying out tasks like deletion, protection, banning users, and editing protected pages such as the Main Page. Most of what you do is easily reversible by other sysops, apart from page history merges and image deletion, so please be especially careful with those. You might find the new administrators' how-to guide helpful. Cheers! -- Cecropia 04:31, 25 March 2006 (UTC)

Congratulations on your new mop and bucket! :) - Cheers, Mailer Diablo 05:04, 25 March 2006 (UTC)
Yes, congratulations: very fine indeed! I think you will be superb at this job; the main risk, I have found, is letting adminnly duties take time away from writing good quality music articles. Cheers, and enjoy the keys to the super secret cabal inner sanctum broom closet. Antandrus (talk) 05:06, 25 March 2006 (UTC)
Congrats on the adminship. :) I do have one request -- put User:Habsfannova on your watchlist. They have been harrassed by an anon user (see User_talk:Habsfannova#Vandalism). Nephron 05:44, 25 March 2006 (UTC)
