In A Perfect World (Keri Hilson)

I can i bring to your attention a number of edits that you have made to "in a perfect world" the new album by keri hilson. First of you have done what many other editors have and reverted the article to its table format for the album track-listing. this is a direct violation of wikipedia rules. WP:Albums is the wikipedia for rules regarding albums. It cleary states that album tracklistings should be displayed in a numeric list with the contributors in brackets and the length written after a hyphon. therefore your continuous updates to the article are counter-productive to the cause. i will revert to the correct tracklist format once more and please un-do this.

Anastacia

I see Heavy Rotation (Anastacia Album) exists again. Would you mind if the article were moved to a subpage of your user space so you could continue working on it until it's ready as an aricle? Also, according to naming guidelines "Album" shouldn't be capitalized in the title of the article. Gimmetrow 12:08, 19 September 2008 (UTC)

Let me know when you think the page is ready for article space. The image you uploaded has about a week before it is automatically deleted, though it can be uploaded again of course. Gimmetrow 16:53, 29 September 2008 (UTC)

Article was unprotected through WP:Requests for page protection, so I've moved this version over. Gimmetrow 21:56, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

I see you are consistently reverting my edit which removes the label name "Universal". I really think its redundant to indicate "universal" since she is signed to a front line label known as Mercury. If we should go with the logic of including "Universal", then we might as well indicated Sony BMG after daylight/epic, making it something like daylight/epic/Sony BMG. But the reality is that this is not the way it's done for hundreds of artist infoboxes here on wiki.

So in keeping consistent with the wiki convention and to avoid redundancies, either we remove universal from the current "mercury / universal" setup. Or we can be a little more redundant and add Sony BMG to make daylight/epic/song bmg, making the "universal / mercury" entry consistent with the first company (but it is still inconsistent with other wiki artist boxes). Obviously the more logical choice would be to omit universal outright.

First I wanna apologize if I was impolite in any way, I usually forget to sign my posts (bad habit). Her Daylight/Epic releases exhibit the imprints in all markets, and Universal will most likely do the exact same thing in all foreign markets. She is an American based artist, both under daylight/epic and under Mercury since these companies are all based in the US. So in the same way that International Sony BMG companies released/distributed her stuff all over Europe, Asia, Mid East etc. bearing her original frontline label affiliations (daylight & epic), I think Universal International companies will do the same thing with her Mercury releases, a routine practice for decades. So I'm not entirely convinced the two entries have to differ in this way. Again I apologize if I came out impolite. Imperatore (talk) 20:10, 20 October 2008 (UTC)
Hey, I was wondering if you can get back to me so we can finalize this issue quickly. Thank. Imperatore (talk) 18:05, 27 October 2008 (UTC)
I fail to see how that sentence proves anythings. In the past she always talked about her people at "sony" referring to sony music, but I don't see sony music after epic & daylight. Secondly I'm in Canada and unfortunately here, as you might know, Universal has not yet brought the album. I don't wanna argue how the convention should be for indicating companies and imprints, the only thing that bugs me is what I had said earlier- the logic of the first entry (not indicating parent) does not match the second entry (indicating parent). Imperatore (talk) 18:23, 27 October 2008 (UTC)
Well obviously she worked with tons of people and probably negotiated with many who work in different jobs within Universal. For instance, a marketing or A&R person that works with all the "labels". After all, these labels don't operate in isolation from one another, they are part of one big company, and usually that's the advantage of consolidating them into one big whole. So good for her for writing the thank you note in a way where she won't forget anyone within the company. This is probably even more obvious for an artist like Anastacia who manages a transnational career- she has to deal with "Universal" international companies when she is abroad. But the bottom line for the infobox is: who is she signed to. It seems that she's with the new Mercury through island def jam music group in the usa where David Massey is new exec. So in the US you put the front-line label in the artist infobox, exactly how it is indicated for her us-based signing under epic/daylight. Imperatore (talk) 18:53, 27 October 2008 (UTC)
I have reviewed the album covers and they confirm that its an The Island Def Jam Music Group release under the "mercury" label. So now this reinforces my argument that the standard rule for artists in the US under universal and other multinational parents- you write only the front-line label in wiki. And I was looking at the australian cover, distributed by "universal music australia". I also found it interesting that the universal logo is NOT included on the back cover or spine, but this is irrelevant and doesn't have to do with my argument. 01:13, 30 October 2008 (UTC)


Hi, in regards to your recent label related revert, I just wanted to point out the "Mercury" of Island Def Jam, is the label to which she is signed and recorded for. This label will appear on the covers and in the database of retailers all over the world, that does not change. So theoretically, every territory can be: universal music / mercury, like the first round of countries on the history table. However, there are currently only four territories which operate "frontline" mercury divisions: Mercury of IDJ (US), Mercury of Mercury Music Group (UK), Mercury of UMFR (France), and Mercury of UMAUS (Australia). US and UK, no question there only Mercury is sufficient to satisfy wp:albums, France could have both labels since "Universal Music" is a key brand, but they love to differentiate based on labels, even though their operations are fully consolidated into one "universal music france". As for Asutralia, they have a Mercury, but theres was strictly created as a local-Australian A&R division, hence it only handles the (Australian) artists it signs; all "international" repertoire goes through the central "UMAUS". Unfortunately they have no website, but Australia's Island Records does have a website- the other local A&R- and under releases you can see that they only handle their own repertoire, therefore you won't see a Mariah Carey album there for example, but you will see her albums at the central UMAUS site. That being said, the release history "label" should be handled like a release company, because if we just go with "labels", then theoretically the entire box should have the label "Mercury".

Dashes

Hey there MariAna Mimi, I'd just like to bring to your attention of dashes. You've changes emdashes to endashes in several articles in the infobox in years recorded. Per WP:DASH, that is incorrect. You should always endashes instead of emdashes in these situations. Just keep this in mind for next time. Thank you! DiverseMentality(Boo!) 18:51, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

Concert tour names

FYI, the reason I reverted your change to Come On Over Tour is that concert tour names are always given in regular font, not italics or quotes. This is a convention we've had in WP since 2005 or so. The reason is that a concert tour is an event, similar to Super Bowl or World Cup or Live Earth, not a particular work of art. It's also beneficial to have them in regular font because many tours are named after albums or songs, and this lets us keep them visually distinct. Thus, we can say things like: the Come On Over Tour was in support of the Come On Over album, and the Vertigo Tour sometimes featured two performances of the song "Vertigo".

And keep up the good work on music articles – we need more real editors on them and fewer IP addresses putting in all sorts of crazy stuff. Wasted Time R (talk) 22:18, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

Heavy Rotation Tour

Please read edit summaries and talk page before you make unnecessary edits. To further explain:

  • Date Format (Tour Table): (from Manual of Style)
    • Dates in article body text should all have the same format.
    • Dates in article references should all have the same format.
    • If an article has evolved using predominantly one format, the whole article should conform to it, unless there are reasons for changing it based on strong national ties to the topic.
  • Tour Schedule: (from Wikipedia is not a crystal ball)
    • Wikipedia is not a collection of unverifiable speculation. All articles about anticipated events must be verifiable, and the subject matter must be of sufficiently wide interest that it would merit an article if the event had already occurred.
      • As stated in my edit summary, the tour currently ends on 7/12/09. Those are the only dates schedule. Thus, as far as the general public is concerned, the tour ends on 7/12/09. When more dates are added, then this can be changed. Saying the tour will have more than one leg or end on a certain date is just pure speculation until it is otherwise reported.
  • External links: Should relate to the content of the article, not the subject. Myspace and Youtube links are fine for an article about the artist themselves but not in this context. Additionally, there is no need to Wiki-link an article to Italy over and over again. One wiki link is sufficient.

Hello, Please can i ask that in the interest of courtesy and for ease of understanding when making edits like you have done to Fantasy Ride can you provide an WP:edit summary. this helps other editors identify what changes have been made to articles. I know myself that sometimes i forget to do so, but it does make things easier for other users if you can provide a brief summary of the additions/deletions or changes you have made to an article.

In response to this; in the guideline, it states: Album articles may contain an external links section of links to relevant external resources about the album. To emphasize, it continues with: Links to resources about the artist rather than the album do not need to be included here, as these should be linked from the artist's article instead. Meaning, the external links that you've added (her official website and whatnot) best belong in the article Keri Hilson rather than the article about the album, because that website is more about Hilson than it is about the actual album, which is why I removed them to begin with. — Σxplicit 06:58, 14 July 2009 (UTC)

Labels

Hi there, I believe we've spoken before... Just wanted to remind you that Anastacia always had an American signing with epic/daylight, even though all the albums were generally released by overseas sony music companies only. In the same way how you've put only "mercury" for the recent album, the same logic is to put epic and daylight as labels in the infobox and discography for the other albums. Either way, we must keep a consistent logic, so if you should put "sony bmg" in the discography under label, then you might as well add "universal music" to the recent album. But the correct (and consistent!) way is as aforementioned (omit all parent companies cuz in the US, where she's always been signed, they operate as standalone/frontline operations). FYI Sony BMG came into existence in 2004, so the first two albums were under sony music as a parent, so this correction had to be made anyway. On another note, I really think it's a commendable job you've done maintaining her page. Imperatore (talk) 10:17, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

Yeah I noticed just from the amount of edits in the history tab that you're mostly running the show here. I'll definitely keep her in mind for expansion, although I'm not very familiar since I only really discovered her around the time Left Outside Alone was released to mainstream North American radio. As for the new album, I think it has a solid base, and then some, however there's some outdated information on there. For instance, it's very likely to assume that there's not gonna be a North American tour after all- she remains an export :(. Imperatore (talk) 11:24, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

Forgot to mention that what I find oddly fascinating about her is that even though she is destined only for european/asian release, under her American signings her A&R people have only hooked her up with mostly American music industry people it seems. Also it seems that virtually all her stuff has been recorded in studios in NYC and LA. This is kind of ironic considering some of the biggest pop songs of the last decade by American artists, e.g. Britney spears, have been recorded in Europe, like in Sweden, by Swedish composers and producers. You would think that somewhere along the line some sony music people in Europe would've had some kind of involvement in the production of her music. But the reality is that she was always marketed as an American import, whereas in America she is an export only (generally speaking) lol. Imperatore (talk) 11:42, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

Hello please could you briefly add your opinion to: Talk:Flirt (album)#Article Redirect. Thank you (Lil-unique1 (talk) 12:34, 9 August 2009 (UTC))

Apology

This edit of mine - I apologise. I did not intend to call this vandalism, but I hit the wrong button. It's not vandalism. The "You Tube" link is not needed and is not acceptable by WP:EL. There is a copyright issue, and my earlier comment about not being able to view it in my country, was basically to underline the fact that someone is taking the copyright issue seriously enough to ensure that clips are blocked in some countries. I'm sure people in plenty of countries can view the material, but that is not the point. I really don't care who can and who can't see it. As we're aiming for free content, we don't link to copyrighted external links without strong cause, and in this case, there is no strong cause. We link to the kylie.com official site and if they link to "You Tube", that is the correct path to take. Wikipedia doesn't need to link to "You Tube" directly. Again, my apologies, and I'm sorry that my edit looks like an accusation. I've also put a note on Talk:Kylie Minogue. Also you may be aware that this article is undergoing a major clean-up as part of a WP:FAR. With this in mind, could you please use edit summaries. That will ensure that your edits are not accidentally overwritten as the article is cleaned up. Rossrs (talk) 15:42, 14 August 2009 (UTC)

I Look to You

according to WP:Capitalization it does not matter how the song it titled on an album but you should follow grammatical rules when writing about songs on wikipedia. furthermore once a producer/writer has been mentioned once you should only mention them by surname or first initial and surname according to WP:albums.

Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel

I was NOT vandalising, I was returning it to when it had citation. You have no citation as to if the first single will be released on September 29th, so I will return the page to one with citation and when you have citation for a release date, then add it back. Jayy008 (talk) 01:48, 19 August 2009 (UTC)


Track listing

You should actually look at what you are reverting.

  • the prepositions should be small case e.g. "Its A Wrap" should be "Its a Wrap".
  • barry white for example did NOT physically write the song with MC, but should be accredited because his sample was used.
  • The song Betcha Gonna Know is actually called "Betcha Gonna Know (The Prologue)" the note feature should be reserved for specifiying samples and features. (Lil-unique1 (talk) 16:14, 29 November 2009 (UTC))

Kylie Minogue

You did not provide a reason for reverting my edit to Kylie Minogue, which fixed the infobox to comply to MoS standards specified at Template:Infobox Musical artist. Do not revert my edits again without valid reason. POKERdance talk/contribs 02:54, 25 August 2009 (UTC)

Could you both please discuss this issue rather than just reverting and more reverting. This is a featured article that is currently under review and I don't know how many times the genres have been changed over the last few weeks. Hitting the revert button isn't working, so try something else please. I've spent a lot of time working on the article to try to retain its featured article status and this type of tendentious and disruptive editing on such a minor part of the entire article, undermines that process. I don't care what genres you all decide upon, but please hurry up and sort it out. Take a look at other featured articles, for example. Look at Madonna that only uses three genres, for example. Take it to the music project and get another viewpoint, for example. Please just accept that the constant reverting is getting nowhere and find a more productive approach. Thanks.

Everything Burns

Hi! It appears to me that Everything Burns is a single from the Fantastic Four soundtrack. Therefore that does not make it a single off Pieces of a Dream, leaving the compilation with 2 singles. If this is the case, Pieces of a Dream singles listing and her navbox need to be fixed. Imperatore (talk) 11:36, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

Several month gap between the song and the album. Also it would only make sense to have the first single "Pieces of a Dream" since it's the title of the compilation as well. Also Everything Burns is on Wind-Up and not Epic (if current infobox is accurate), reinforcing that it's not associated directly with her releases. Imperatore (talk) 11:56, 28 August 2009 (UTC)
Just remembered something...Wind-Up (an indie) is distributed by Epic, therefore there will inevitably be a "wind up / epic" like association on various sites.

I Look to You (Issues with Editing)

Your persistance with track-listings is getting rather annoying and disruptive. For whatever reason you seem to prefer tables and tracklist templates to a numeric list which according to WP:album there is no notable reaons for preference. What's more is that you dont seem to be able to allow others to contribute to an article without making nuisance/trivial edits to others additions. for example in the article I Look to You you felt in necessary to change the track-list template seperate the producers and writers. This is only appropriate when we have the exact producers and writers. Right now there is no source in the article which proves this although the rap-up review tells us 9 of the producers/writers. Furthermore WP:Albums Clearly states that once a producer is mentioned once they should then subsequently be mentioned by surname and intial. For example subsequent recurrings of Claude Kelly becomes C. Kelly. Furthermore where an artist has a performaing name e.g. Christopher Stewart = Tricky Stewart, on subsequent mentionings Christopher "Tricky" Stewart should be referred to as Tricky Stewart.

On previous occassions i have backed down e.g. with Anastacia's most recent album and with Keri Hilson's In a Perfect World... but it doesnt not set a good example to other wikipedians if we have users such as yourself going against wikipedia general consensus and editing in such a way that could be seen as disruptive and/or trivial. i am going to revert the track listing format back to its last most correct version. I am more than happy to discuss improvements but will not stand back and watch articles being edited for personal credit/or personal satisfaction. Articles such as this one are likely to be highly trafficked and should adhere to the highest of quality standards. This by the way also includes writing critical reception in continuous prose. Reviews of the same nature/idea should be written in the same paragrph. Reviews should not be listed. Furthermore i would disregard adding any more reviews, the article has enough for now. (Lil-unique1 (talk) 00:00, 2 September 2009 (UTC))

You wanted proof for what i said, here it is: "Note the standard method of attributing songwriters—write (and link) the full name the first time it appears, and then just give the last name (unless the first initial or entire first name is necessary to disambiguate it, as in the Gallagher brothers of Oasis, or Brad and Brett Warren of The Warren Brothers). If all songs were written by the same person or team, this can be stated at the top as "All songs were written by Gordon Gano." If several songs were written by the same person or team, this can be stated as "All songs were written by Gordon Gano, except where noted." This can be found at WP:albums#Article body and then under the tracklist sub-section. (Lil-unique1 (talk) 21:38, 2 September 2009 (UTC))
with regards to critical reception there is no benefit to having an obsessively large body of text on this when it is copied and sourced from other websites. if people want to read reviews that is why they are listed in the infobox. im sorry if it seemed i was trying to control the content of the article. i was not. we appear to have got off on the wrong foot, it is clear we are both passionate editors and if we work together we can achieve higher editing standards rather than working against each other. (Lil-unique1 (talk) 21:56, 2 September 2009 (UTC))

Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel

can i ask where you have sourced the track listing from? (Lil-unique1 (talk) 16:39, 4 September 2009 (UTC))

Re:Question

if you wish to report user for edit warring i recommend WP:AN/EW. On the forum board administrators constantly monitor the discussions. You will be asked to outline exactly when and how the user in question has violated wikipedia rules regarding reversions and editing. I have taken a look at the page history myself and i am 100% confident that the administrators will see a ban as the most appropriate action. You tried to engage in discussion with him/her and they have blatantly refused to comemnt despite several discussion attempts being opened. (Lil-unique1 (talk) 17:44, 7 September 2009 (UTC))

Anastacia's voice type

Hi there MariAna Mimi. Thanks for the inquirery. I am by no means an authority on singing, although I am a professional cellist and know a lot about music. My wife is an opera singer so I have picked up some knowledge from her and of course I know some things just from working as a musician and from my college days. The article originally stated she was a "dramatic soprano". One thing I do know for sure is that a "dramatic soprano" is a specific kind of opera singer. Anastacia is not an opera singer so she can't be a dramatic soprano. Personally, I don't think she is even a soprano. She sounds more like a mezzo-soprano or even a contralto to me. One thing my wife has told me when it comes to figuring out a singer's voice type is that vocal range is not the most important factor (although it does play a role). A lot of people confuse the two. What's more important is a singer's tessitura, or where they feel the most comfortable singing, and the vocal timbre (the way the voice sounds). Anastacia seems to feel more comfortable singing in a low to mid vocal range because that is where she sings most of the time. She also has a deeper/darker timbre than a soprano typically has. So, even if she might have the ability to sing up high she would probably not be classified as a soprano because she doesn't have the "soprano sound". Make sense? Regaurdless, it doesn't matter what I think when it comes to putting her voice type in the article. What we need is a published reliable source.Plumadesabiduría (talk) 08:35, 8 September 2009 (UTC)

RE: Label Names

Actually if you look under release history section of WP:albums it says no such thing, that quote you've picked out refers to the infobox and if you look at the likes of Spirit (Leona Lewis album) which was fetaured and has been highly approved it is the norm to include the latter part of the record labels for the release history (notice its Syco Music not Syco!), furthermore it is necessary for universal because there is a universal records and and a universal music which are different as well as Island Records and Island Music Group. Mercury also has Mercury Records and Mercury Group, as does Polydor (Polydor Group and Polydor records). (Lil-unique1 (talk) 18:09, 20 September 2009 (UTC))

Capitalisations and Tracklisting Surnames

WP:albums clearly states that once a producer/writer has been mentioned one in full name e.g. Jorge Drexler in subsequesnt mentionings he/she should be referred to as Drexler. An initial (such as J. Drexler) should only be used if there is more than one person with the same name working on the album. This is not the case with She Wolf (album) so i do not understand why you want this information included so much.

Furthermore wikipedia articles should follow good grammer rules. This is why I Look to You is named as it is and not as I Look To You even though that is it's official title. This logic and rule applies to shakira's second single "Did it Again" (not "Did It Again") (Lil-unique1 (talk) 21:52, 22 September 2009 (UTC))

Red links and attitude

Hello, this is a reply to your extremely rude undo of one of my previous edits to the article The Boy Who Knew Too Much.

JODI MARR IS A PAGE THAT DOES NOT EXIST!! stop linking it!!!!

As you’re clearly unaware of the concept of Wikipedia:Red_links please introduce yourself and then refrain from removing correct red links in the future. Also try and sort out your attitude towards fellow Wikipedia contributors. Thanks, Freshpop (talk) 01:07, 26 September 2009 (UTC)

Using capital letters and a string of exclamation marks is really quite rude, and completely unnecessary. I’ve seen other people on your talk page who have had to clarify their own edits to you as you have wrongly presumed they’re wrong, mostly due to a lack of understanding on your part. You should presume that because I keep red linking Jodi Marr that it is my full intention to eventually create a Wikipedia article about her, and just because you don’t know who someone is doesn’t mean there shouldn’t be an article about them. Thanks once again, Freshpop (talk) 15:54, 26 September 2009 (UTC)
Yeah I know you said sorry, I was just pointing out why it was rude. Yes I do have an idea about the what the discussion was about, by the same way you did; reading, and it does seem just jump on people's edits even if they're correct. Thanks for the sarcasm. Freshpop (talk) 18:46, 26 September 2009 (UTC)

Edit summaries

Hi there. When undoing or redoing an undo of an article, please state your reasons in the edit summary as full (and politely) as you can. I accept and apologise that my edits on The Boy Who Knew Too Much (album) were a mistake on my part, but if you had linked me to Wikipedia:Albums in your first edit then an edit war would have been avoided. Also, I can see from previous discussions on your talk page that users have been complaining about your attitude when writing reasons for an edit (for example, User: Freshpop's quite recent message), especially if they are an redo of your own edits which have been undone. I have to say, I do agree. Please try and keep Wikipedia a team working environment, be polite, and be respectful of other users. Thank you very much. Jonny (talk) 16:21, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

Reality Killed the Video Star

Thank you for your informative edit summaries around this article. Might I make a suggestion? If there is informative and cited material in an article that you feel is in the wrong part of an article, then it would be better to move that material to where you think it does go rather than simply deleting it. Bondegezou (talk) 14:12, 15 November 2009 (UTC)

Thank you for the pointer to WP:ALBUMS guidance here. Wikipedia articles are works in progress: while we should strive to get them to a high standard of formatting, we should preserve useful content along the way. WP:IMPERFECT and WP:PRESERVE are key policy here; they are far more important than WP:ALBUMS. I will endeavour to improve the Reality Killed the Video Star article over time, in line with WP:ALBUMS guidance, but some information, be it incomplete or not formatted in a standard way, is more useful that none. It would be great, if you have the time, if you could re-work the material I've added to better fit WP:ALBUMS style. Bondegezou (talk) 14:47, 15 November 2009 (UTC)

WARNING

You have recently engaged in edit-warring on pages, including the Reality Killed the Video Star article, as well as showing incivility towards other users. Please familiarise yourself with rules regarding these matters at WP:EDITWAR and WP:CIVILITY. Considering that you have already been warned about this kind of behaviour recently, if you persist in this behaviour you will be blocked from editing. 80.47.92.139 (talk) 22:21, 30 November 2009 (UTC)

SECOND WARNING

Warning

Please refrain from undoing other people's edits repeatedly, as you are doing at Reality Killed the Video Star. If you continue, you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia. Note that the three-revert rule prohibits making more than three reversions in a content dispute within a 24 hour period. Additionally, users who perform a large number of reversions in content disputes may be blocked for edit warring, even if they do not technically violate the three-revert rule. Rather than reverting, discuss disputed changes on the talk page. The revision you want is not going to be implemented by edit warring. Thank you. --> 80.47.139.130 (talk) 18:45, 1 December 2009 (UTC)

Warning

Warning

Please refrain from undoing other people's edits repeatedly, as you are doing at Reality Killed the Video Star. If you continue, you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia. Note that the three-revert rule prohibits making more than three reversions in a content dispute within a 24 hour period. Additionally, users who perform a large number of reversions in content disputes may be blocked for edit warring, even if they do not technically violate the three-revert rule. Rather than reverting, discuss disputed changes on the talk page. The revision you want is not going to be implemented by edit warring. Thank you. --> 80.47.35.172 (talk) 03:43, 17 December 2009 (UTC)

civility note

Hi- please drop the stick in regards to Reality Killed the Video Star. The tone your messages on Talk:Reality Killed the Video Star have taken show a serious issue with Wikipedia's civility policy. I'd strongly suggest refactoring them and/or apologizing to the IP and trying to constructively resolve your dispute. Finally, please read over WP:OWN. Cheers, tedder (talk) 14:33, 17 December 2009 (UTC)

your signature

BTW, I've noticed that your signature does not link to your user or talk pages. I suspect you've customized it to be this way. Wikipedia:SIG#Internal links says "Signatures must include at least one internal link to your user page, user talk page, or contributions page; this allows other editors easy access to your talk page and contributions log. The lack of such a link is widely viewed as obstructive."

Let me know if you need help fixing this. tedder (talk) 14:41, 17 December 2009 (UTC)

Final warning for disruption & Notice of temporary editing restriction

Rather than block you immediately for continued edit warring, I've felt you should get this a final warning to end the disruptive use of undo. It is upsetting that you continued editing in the same way that lead to you being blocked almost immediately after the article Reality Killed the Video Star had been un-protected. While I appreciate your use of the article's talk pages this time around, your attitude and tone has raised civility and ownership concerns (as noted above by notices from other admins). You must not abuse the revert tool any further, nor should you continue to discuss things on the article's talk page in a hostile manner. Otherwise, you will be blocked.

Editing restriction at Reality Killed the Video Star

Further, due to continued abuse of undo, you are restricted from its use on the article for one month. The only two exemptions to this restriction will be for cases of clear and unambiguous vandalism, or severe WP:BLP violations. The length of one month was selected as the previous two weeks full protection on the article didn't seem to deter this behaviour. The restriction will be enforced by a block of whatever period any admin who is notified of its breach determines to be appropriate. I don't want to block you, thus I hope this compromise is something you're able to abide by. NJA (t/c) 13:32, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

Rated R (Rihanna album)

I would like some help with the User:Vitorvicentevalente. He keeps defending that the album's main genres are hiphop and rock, using one source for it (an IGN review), but most critics and album/music databases (ex. Metacritic, Allmusic) have it listed as either pop or R&B or both, only noting that it incorporates elements of hip hop & rock. I think we have an edit war going on, which I think is kinda fun (see our edit notes, funny stuff), but it is not constructive. What do u propose? Dan56 (talk) 21:30, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

About the reviews box, is there a limit on reviews like b4 with a 10 review maximum? Dan56 (talk) 20:18, 23 December 2009 (UTC)

civility in edit summaries

I've asked you before, but please discontinue putting abusive comments in your edit summaries, which you've done as recently as three hours ago ([2], [3]). Please remain calm with your editsummaries and talk page comments going forward. Cheers, tedder (talk) 01:37, 19 December 2009 (UTC)

You have been blocked from editing for a period of 55 hours for continuing to violate our civility policy, demonstration of continued article ownership, and a violation of your restriction on reverting. Please stop. You are welcome to make useful contributions after the block expires. If you believe this block is unjustified you may contest this block by adding the text {{unblock|Your reason here}} below. NJA (t/c) 09:51, 19 December 2009 (UTC)

Admin notes: As noted directly above, admin tedder issued another civility warning, and had apparently missed my final warning given just yesterday. You are blocked as you were told clearly to stop disrupting Wikipedia by reverting and by editing in a hostile manner that causes civility issues and demonstrates article ownership by you. Also, you already violated your editing restriction by re-adding the billboard content. As you're under an editing restriction, you should be discussing things on the talk pages first before reverting. You must take these issues seriously or your next blocks will last for weeks, if not longer. NJA (t/c) 10:01, 19 December 2009 (UTC)

Also, on your talk page alone, I count 9 warnings about edit warring and misuse of revert; 5 on etiquette and civility; and 3 specifically on reverting and impolite edit summaries. Also I notice a pattern of you referring to others' edits as vandalism to excuse your behaviour. That type of behaviour is tendentious, and it needs to stop. Unfortunately without some major adjustments by you, I do not believe this will be your last block. NJA (t/c) 10:11, 19 December 2009 (UTC)

Request reason:

How do you want me to stop IP adresses to vandalize Wikipedia without undoing their edits? why am I the one blocked and not them, when the only thing I do is to contribute to the pages!? this is really illogical don't you think? The Billboard source was perfectly good that's why i added it back! as you might see i only use good sources for every article i edit! also the comments on my page many were left by IP adresses, can't u see? and in most cases i was right & they were wrong

Decline reason:

Even if you are right and they are wrong, that is not a justification for either incivility or edit warring.  Sandstein  10:28, 19 December 2009 (UTC)

Request reason:

I just think that this is not right at all...I hope that the block period will be reduced.The IP user did not talk about his/her edits before reverting, adding information. The user added more reviews to the infobox as well as adding unsourced info at the review section. Do you believe that this is right? I've been editing Wiki for quite some time and still i get blocked by some Ip user who has editied Wiki for not more than 4 hours and seems to be more concerned to block me insted of editing the article.People who contribute to Wiki get blocked while others who just come to mess things up continue to do what they want...I hope that you also see that i was reported by IP adresses who all seem to be fixated on the same idea of adding a specific review to the page, don't you think that's really strange??Anyway i hope that you reconsider the time period. Thank U!

Decline reason:

You do not own those articles. Edit warring is not permissible unless you are reverting pure vandalism. Until you are willing to acknowledge and abide by that, you can expect to keep getting blocked when you edit war. In the future, consider pursuing dispute resolution instead.
